I like Hati mechanically, but I'm fine if they move past that. What I'd like to see at least is Hati made tamable for all hunters after said quest as a normal pet. I'd like for there to be no special requirements; anyone can tame him without cooldown or difficulty as long as they have completed the artifact ending quest. No long cooldowns, no special pets, and no canonically killing off Hati when the artifact is removed. Make it so Hati's link with the weapon is gone, and can be summoned (and tamed) like a normal pet.Now as for what Hati provided mechanically, I would be fine with seeing a talent or even building into beast mastery a second pet. My main concern, however, is Hati's survival.
This may sounds very pathetic.. but i played the last six years alone because had enough of people or they had enough of me. Either way, with Hati and a follower on my side i didn't feel so alone. They are interactive, i can even change Hati whatever i want, i have two pets and a follower now! And they gave me an incredible gaming experience as a loner. My only reason why i want to keep him so badly is literally because i'm alone. Like miserably alone. And he keeps me company. If there are some issues, bugs or other player's complaining, then keep him as a choosable talent on BM. Playing BM with that many animals by your side was just simply awesome, i felt like it was the way it always should have been.
why would you even want an AI thats unresponsive and bugs most of the time? Pet Ai seems to have stayed the same for the entire of WoW they always do something thats not wanted
I hope they resolve this some way. Gotten used to two pets running around me, just seems so right for a Beast Mastery hunter.
I like having two pets, but I do not like all the pathing issues. If Hati cannot stay with us, since we're giving up Titanstrike, I like the idea of him being saved and returning to Thorim.
I support the motion, don't wanna lose a pet companion to the lore :(
This is a very cool petition and I do support it for those among the hunters who want to save Hati. However, I think it 'needs' to be a choice in a talent tree or something to choose to use a second pet, not forced upon someone, in my own opinion. I must admit that I'm getting used to having two pets at the same time, but still I rather have one in the BM spec. I mean, I don't want to have to switch to MM or SV to have a single pet. Also, I agree with some comments about 'reworking' Hati or second pet, because currently I see that Hati is sometimes doing nothing untill 'Kill Command' is used or some other ability then it suddenly springs into action.
Honestly, it simply makes sense. Forcing us to pull an Old Yeller number is just unwarranted and quite cruel, not even factoring in Hati's sacrifice in the artifact quest.
I agree, he should be saved. Unfortunately as I don't have any US server characters I can't post on the US WoW forum.
Personally,I've hated two pets from the start. I don't like the lightning cloud around Hati either. I want to go back to one pet like it's been for years.
sorry but no no no hati is part of the artifact we cant keep it just doesn't make sense and to be honest I cannot wait to get rid of the terrible AI of it I ain't supporting this you kids and you girls need to get a grip and so it doesnt sit in banks for ever more give us a quest to take it back to that old god in Northrend cant think of his name
#SaveHati!If Hati can't stay as a second pet, then please please give him a happy ending. I'd hate to see him die.
I'd be all for having Hati saved, if Blizzard actually cared enough to do anything meaningful with it outside of leaping out of their chairs as fast as humanly possible to slap multiple hotfixes and appearance resets on it to put the kebash on the small amount of fun we were able to have essence swapping it.It's even better when you consider that to this day Hati STILL doesn't get a size increase during Bestial Wrath after getting the trait that lets it apply to them, which means if you're using two identical pet models you'll always have one of them become lopsided during your spec's most defining DPS cooldown (well, a pathetic shadow of its former glory at least) with the greatest amount of uptime.So yeah, Blizzard has to consider giving a damn about Hunters in general before they can give us nice things.
My knaifu will literally kill me in game before she lets me leave her anywhere lol, and there is no way she will "sacrifice herself" for the greater good via some magical enchantment to stop sargeras sword.
I would like to see Hati stay for the beast master hunter.
I agree that Hati should be saved. Letting him go is pretty much slapping Thorium in the face. It also would reinforce the thinking animals are disposable.
Save Hati! :)
