Is there anyone out there who can describe the differences between
Thank you :D
Vanity pets were pets that just followed you around and looked cute. A few of the pets are still vanity pets since they are not usable in pet battles - the balloon comes to mind.
In Mists of Pandaria, pet battles were introduced that allow you to play a "game within the game" of battling your vanity pets with other people's or with pets in the world. So vanity pets by and large became battle pets. They also became account-wide rather than soulbound.
Combat pets is a term that may be used to describe battle pets, but is more accurately a description of the creatures used by pet classes like Hunters and Warlocks. These pets actually assist the player by attacking enemies in combat, and contribute to their dps. Hunter pets are tamed in the world and can be collected, they have varying abilities that contribute to different types of combat. Warlock pets are gained as you level.
Mounts are critters you can ride like vehicles. They are gained by purchase with inworld gold, earned via quests or reputation, purchased with money from the blizzard store, or are rewarded for certain achievements.
Good sources for more information:
- vanity/battle pets
- Hunter pets
Thank you, that helps clarify alot :D
