    Default More pets?

    At some point are we going to be able to summon/tame different pets? Or are we only allowed the ones found in the ranger soul tree?

    For 'ATTACK' pets, you can only use the ones you get in your soul trees (some get better versions later in the tree)

    As for 'fun' pets, there are hundreds, some from quests, some from random rift awards. But all theses pets do it follow you around. I love the rabbit from hell

    For now it appears that Trion is sticking to the pets within the trees. If they did branch out into allowing different pet "skins" for asthetics then that would be great. Otherwise the current souls are based more around the synergy of the skills within the souls, vs. a specific pet type.

    Probably my biggest disappointment playing the ranger class. The 2 pets I saw were just gross and I was super saddened that I had no other options. With all the beautiful creatures in Rift, they gave us an ugly boar and a wolf that looks more like a gorilla, come on. The raptor had better be like super freaking awesome.

    I would like to see more model variation, but the number of pets in the game is just fine as it is.

    Yeah I figured they would stick with those for now, I'm also hoping they can add new skins because the pets are a bit ugly lol. I play wow and I'm a big pet collector I like variety but I'll be happy with what they give me

    I love non combat pets I have 134 in wow lol

    I think the number of combat pets granted by the various souls are good but I would like to see different skins available for them.
    They can be given out by quest or from a merchant for a special token. I think that faction specific pets would be nice too, such as a mechanical boar or a celestial wolf for the rangers or skeletons wearing damaged faction specific armor for the necros.
    Pet diversity would be a nice addition to the pets system.

    the pets in the game are nice, just wish they had more. Try a BM, only 2 pets. And the first every friggin warrior has cause you can get it and continue to level the skill with 0 pts in the BM tree.

    I hope they add the option to change their skins, or different skins for different races, or at least factions.

    same as elementalist , the pets are bland and the models are "meh".......the greater version are just "bigger" and thats it?.........lame

    there are lots of cool elemental models and the "elementalist" gets the most boring looking pets

    fire pet where?

    I would also like more pet options. I think rangers should be allowed to pick one of several options that they "bond" with and level with them.

    Must be a layover from my GSIV days but I loved that way of doing it.

    Or heck, could even do something like GW did, and allow you to charm certain animals that you find in the world. Stat wise, I think they were all pretty similar, if not the same, but it allowed for different pet models along with rare pets, like the Black Widow, Black Moa, Rainbow Phoenix, Jingle Bear, etc.
