500 pets and I've not even started on Pandaria, now I have to go through it releasing all the grey ones I don't need.

Either I wasn't paying attention of this 500 limit wasn't specified anywhere? D:

I discovered that too. I wanted to catch a common, uncommon and rare of each pet only to wonder why I couldn't catch more. Thought about it a little, relogged thinking I was bugged, although I was at 502. I think Blizz should put a warning on the traps at least rather than having "Pets not under 35%" error.

Yeah, I released dozens of pets when I hit my limit. Well, when you think about it, you don't really need any pet that is not rare and you shouldn't need more than one rare anyway. Unless going for VERY specific team setups, but that's for the future, I suppose. Right now there isn't much reason to.

500 is not nearly enough, especially when you consider there are that many pets in game. With pet merging giving people multiples of the same pet, and collectors wanting to capture more than one of each (e.g. a fast one, a high HP one, or a powerful one), then this is not enough.
I suggest it needs to be at least double.

If the developers are looking at storage space, then 500 pets is equivalent to 10 per character (50 characters per account). Each pet needs (at a guess) 8 bytes of storage space at most.

Blizzard have given us this extra facility, but not the space to use it.

claims there to be 497 pets, with more being added in the next patch.

If you read the patch notes you will see it is being increased to 650...my guess is that 650 is enough for most people

Just keep 1 of each pet if it good you will enevr hit the limit. Unles syes you got for very specific setups or 3 x same pet setups. I catch 1 of each and if i come across a rare i check if i have it. If not i catch it and release the lesser one.

Another option would be to allow captured pets to be caged, even if the caged pet is BoA or Soulbound. This would allow us to store battle pets whilst we capture others.

Just keep 1 of each pet if it good you will never hit the limit.


That is good until you remember that some of us have multiple pets from pet merging when they went account wide.

What about the quest rewards, world events etc., that cannot be caged, only released. They can never be replaced without redoing the quest on another character. I would like to store these (even caged) in case I want a second.

Hang on, so you're saying you didn't get rid of those greys straight after you caught them.

Its very unlikely that most of us will get more then about 450 at the moment. A lot of those are unavaliable.

Also i don't get why people want more then 1 of each pet. Why keep anything but a rare? seems silly

A pet can have different stats on its rare versions. Some are fast, some are strong and some tanky. You don't really want a pet that's slow if it has a bunch of attacks that rely being fast.

I only get rid of them once I get a rare.

You might want a fast one, and one with HP. You might want a low level one and a level 25 on.
