I have followed the info on the US forum, where there are a LOT more posts, but one question seems to be ignored, and since I sadly cant write there and ask, I have to do it here hoping for more luck.
It is about number 4.
See I have been collecting pets for years on all my chars. I am sitting on 10-15 of most pets. I have actually been spending all my gold over the years making sure all my ladies had all versions of all pets I was hunting for.
15 x all versions of the Whelplings are a LOT of gold. 15 x all tournement pets, firefly so on and so on. Lets just say I have spended LOT of gold on this.
I farmed all events pets, most quests pets x 10-13. Again a LOT of time invested in it. Now it wasent that much fun, to be honest after char 5 it REALLY wasnt fun, but I felt it was worth it, and I wanted to do it and felt good after it was done.
So all pets gets accout bound, awsome I think. I keep checking up, and I hear that all you have more of it mailed to you.
I think awsome, now I can actually get some of the gold back I spended back then, so I was still happy. No gold or time wasted.
The 15 august there are a new blue post saying, extra pets will no longer be mailed to you in game if you dont have the room, instead they will be added to the book.
I was thinking that I would rather have them in the mail so easier and faster to sell the extra so I could get some of the gold spended back in, but ok, I could still work with it, would just take longer before I could start selling them, but .. yeah still felt ok about it.
Then now I see a new blue post, 2 days before the patch with the changes goes live telling me, that they will all get merged into a max of 3. Three ??? What with the other 10-12 of them, they go up in smoke now ? Even thou less then 2 weeks ago a blue post said something else ?
I am no longer a very happy puppy, for the first time I feel that if that is true and goes live, I wasted tons of gold and hours in the game.
I strongly consider splitting my 2 accs on my battlenet acc into 2, so that I can atleast save 3 of the different versions pets on the other accs. But I would have my leave my "new battlenet acc" unprotected, and since I play all and was looking forward to the new account bound for pets and mounts, this would be VERY annoying to do, and unless I could move the account "back" into my battlenet acc after I had saved 3 of the different types of pets, it would backfire on me mount vise and with new pets.
I am REALLY not happy anymore, and actually came back to the game because the pets and mounts was going account bound and the pet battle. I cheered for MoP, now after 7½ years I can only think of how much gold and hours I might have wasted if 10-12 of all I have collected goes up in smoke.
