Pet Changes in WoD

Great news on Hunter pet abilities over on the WoD site!   Check it out:

We did a comprehensive pass on Hunter pet abilities. As mentioned above in Crowd Control and Diminishing Returns, all full crowd-control abilities have been removed from Hunter pets and replaced those with new abilities, including spreading some that were previously restricted to exotic pets. 

Additionally, Hunters can now tame beasts from new pet families.
Hunters may now tame beasts from 3 new pet families.
Hook Wasp (Exotic)
