Every pet having the same 3 Unleashed pet abilities sucks and willl forever make the spec look unfinished until this gets changed. It's such a bizarre, limiting design choice. Same as how each weapon was given special Unleashed skills, so should different pets. To me, it's such a glaring break from the usual comprehensive interaction with class mechanics we see in elite spec design. Rangers are a flexible class and the pet system is an extension of that, but Untamed pushes every peg into the square hole. It feels silly that Soulbeast introduced the archetypes like Stout/Ferocious/Deadly etc which is a good framework for highlighting the differences between certain pets, but Untamed doesn't work with it. It sucks as well because it could serve as a point of difference from Soulbeast since Untamed can switch pets in combat and have strategic access to a broader variety of skills, which Soulbeast cannot. At this point I'm not sure if it's just me, but it's such a glaring oversight in design that Untamed will always feel unfinished to me until different pet families or archetypes get access to different Unleashed abilities. My ideal set up would be: Unleashed skill 1: Comes from the pet family (i.e. feline, bird, bear etc) Unleashed skill 2: Comes from the pet archetype (i.e. Ferocious, Deadly etc) Unleashed skill 3: Can either be generic to all pets, or comes from the archetype I think that way every pet would feel unique while Unleashed and representative of the fantasy the spec is trying to push. Right now it doesn't feel like our pet is expressing the raw power of nature, but rather it's been taken over by it. And the raw power of nature is unfortunately bland.
