Nethaera: What about hunters? Often their pet talents are set up to match the talents of the hunter. Will they be able to switch their pet specs as well?
Ghostcrawler: We will wipe the pet talents. However we are going to remove the respec cost for pet talents so that players wonâ€™t feel like they need to jump through an additional hoop to respec their pet. In addition, we are going to provide hunters a new core ability to let them remotely access their stable on a long cooldown. This way if their exotic pet heads off to the stable, they will be able to get a different pet. We hope to be able to discuss this new spell in more detail when we get a little further along.
This looks good - excpet;
"a new core ability [...] on a long cooldown"
Since there seems to be no cooldown on the rest of the switching (apart from having to summon a new lexicon) it seems a bit excessive to place the hunter core ability on a long cooldown, provided long equals 10 minutes plus (thats what I understand by long cooldown; not useable in arena), since it will only hurt beastmaster spec, as the main reason you would need to replace a pet was losing Beastmastery talent, and not being able to use your exotic pet anymore.
If by long cooldown we are talking a more moderate 5 minutes it would be fine, but realistically, for it to be of any use (as opposed to getting a portal out and getting a new pet) it has to be on a short enough cooldown as to only equal 1 boss and maybe a bit of trash (depending on the killtime).
