That’s right the lock couldn’t just summon in a new pet mid duel or anything. You need time to free cast for a new pet as it should be. It amuses me when faulty memories and erroneous private server data confuses people.
It is why before I post something about feral I go and try to double check it. Sometimes I have to hit up multiple sites to find the answer since it is so hard to find old information.
It is even more interesting when you have main’ed a spec since 1.1. Feral has gone through so many changes that it is hard sometimes to keep things straight.
I seem to also remember that there is a slight jump in spell numbering between expansions to make it more obvious where the split is. Dont quote me on this one though. Only reason I noticed it overtime was from doing so many betas and paying attention to mmo-champ’s beta coverage.
I’m glad there is irrefutable proof for this one. No one is going to remember every detail about this specific patch, what was exactly in before, or after. We know that the brain remembers things slightly different every time you recall a memory.
People can and will be wrong (and right) and they have to accept that.
