A [[Pet (Hunter)|hunter pet]] can have different abilities, depending on its pet family. Each pet family, or beast type, has one single special skill and belongs to one of the three pet classes Cunning/Ferocity/Tenacity, each of which gives access to a certain pet talent tree. In the pet talent tree the hunter can assign talent points for skills. Some are active combat abilities, used to improve combat effectiveness, or [[passive]] abilities.

A hunter can specialize his or her pets, to a large degree, by the choice of pet family, pet class, and talent build, for example to make a pet a more effective tank or a damage-dealer.

A [[Pet (Hunter)|hunter pet]] can have different abilities, depending on its pet family and [[Pet specializations|specialization]]. Each pet family, or beast type, has at least one single special skill. All families have an inherent specialization (Cunning/Ferocity/Tenacity), each of which gives access to additional skills. Pets can be re-specced, however, into whatever specialization the hunter desires.
   
 
Damaging pet abilities scale with the pet's melee attack power or bonus spell damage. Physical abilities generally gain bonus damage equal to 7% of the pet's melee attack power, while spell abilities generally gain bonus damage equal to 1/3 of the pet's bonus spell damage. See the [[attack power coefficient]] article for further details.

Latest revision as of 20:17, May 23, 2013

For warlock minion abilities, see Minion abilities. For battle pet abilities, see Battle pet abilities.
For the old list of pet abilities, see Pet abilities (old).

A hunter pet can have different abilities, depending on its pet family and specialization. Each pet family, or beast type, has at least one single special skill. All families have an inherent specialization (Cunning/Ferocity/Tenacity), each of which gives access to additional skills. Pets can be re-specced, however, into whatever specialization the hunter desires.

Damaging pet abilities scale with the pet's melee attack power or bonus spell damage. Physical abilities generally gain bonus damage equal to 7% of the pet's melee attack power, while spell abilities generally gain bonus damage equal to 1/3 of the pet's bonus spell damage. See the attack power coefficient article for further details.

Abilities Edit

For pet specialization abilities, see Pet specializations.
Base ability

The damaging abilities are referred to as focus dumps. They are the basic attack assigned to pet families.
