    Default A change to the Skeletal Knight skin; I beg you.

    Hi everyone.

    This has been bothering me since beta.
    The Necromancer's pet called "Skeletal Knight" is supposed to be a tank. But he wields a sword and a dagger in his off hand. This feels pretty odd, and since it is the pet I use most of the time (exept in instance of course), it bothers me a lot.

    The lesser version, the skeletal stalwart feels less awkard in my opinion...
    Can we hope to see a change in our pet's skins someday ?

    I completely agree. The look of the final Necromancer tank pet has always bugged me - it looks less like a tank and more like a DPS warrior to me.

Where are you? You're in a rift with the toon your toon could look like. What's in your hand? Back at me. I have it, it's an epic weapon. Look again, the weapon is now enchanted. Anything is possible when your toon is in RIFT and not in WoW. I'm on a turtle.

    Agreed. It should look like the skeletal stalwart with a cooler shield.

    I 100% agree. I am fairly new to the game, and one day i was rolling around with my Skeletal Knight and saw a guy go by with a Skeleton with a shield. I sent him a tell asking what level I get the good tank pet.

    I had never used the Stalwart and didn't know that's what it was.

    I agree completely. The Stalwart looks much more the part of a tank than the Knight. I'd love to see the Knight have maybe some tougher, better-looking armor, perhaps a glowing sword, and something more like a kite or tower shield (compared to the buckler of the Stalwart). Those are just random thoughts, though - really, just give us something that doesn't look like he wants to go into stealth mode.

    Yeah.. Stalwart looks better, imo.

    For raiding Necro/Locks it's useless anyway, unless you want your screen spammed with "cannot cast unknown ability: blood spike / jagged wound / soul rend", it's kinda annoying.

    On a sidenote, sometimes my macro's bug out and I get errors using the same macro's I always use.. then I restart and they work again -_-

    I agree as well. I remember months ago when I first got the "greater" version of the pets, I had to triple check that it was really the tank pet. Bad design, imo.

    Come on mages, we need more feedback here if we want things to change. We do not ask for a tweek in gameplay, but a cosmetic change, so we can be heard.

    I also encourage you all to use your feedback tool in game to push this idea.

    Thanks a lot to all those who replied.
