Cataclysm Beta: Pets' new Move To command


The intrepid Boubouille over at MMO-Champion has unearthed another beautiful gem in the Cataclysm beta. Namely? The Move To button. This command is fairly simple on the surface but will add a plethora of options to pet classes. (The pet classes, of course, are hunters, death knights, warlocks and mages.) When you press the button, you get a ground target reticle. Move the reticle where you wish your pet to stand, click your mouse and the pet goes there. And then it stands. That's pretty simple, right?

In PvP, this new option will create a whole new level of positioning and feinting using one's pet. If the enemy team is training your pet, you can tell it to run behind a pillar. In PvE, you'll be able to guide your pet out of fire, set it to a more appropriate position or otherwise make it act like a beast that obeys your commands. It's going to be pretty awesome; I'm likely to spend my first few hours learning a bunch of stupid pet tricks.

Right now, the actual icon for the Move To command is missing, but the button still works.

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm will destroy Azeroth as we know it. Nothing will be the same. In's Guide to Cataclysm, you can find out everything you need to know about WoW's third expansion. From goblins and worgens to mastery and guild changes, it's all there for your cataclysmic enjoyment.
