Wild Pets Becoming Untradeable

A blue announced some heavy news on the beta forums last night:
"We just finished a pass making all pets that are caught via pet battles in the world non-tradeable. This means these pets cannot be put in cages for trading or posting on the AH. We felt that the option to buy these pets on the AH would take away from the exploration/collection gameplay of the system.

This could always change in a future patch, but this is how it will go out with MoP. You should see the change in our next build."

You read that right. Wild pets will NOT be tradeable or sellable until further notice.

I'd like to point out that there is a disclaimer that this decision might not be absolute and final, but it does sound as like it will be implemented for MoP. We might not see a better solution until further down the line.

Still, I hope that this is only a temporary fix. There are many other possible ideas being suggested to counteract the whole issue of players possibly breaking the pet leveling system and Pet Battles gameplay on day one.

While I understand that this is probably a necessary move on Blizzard's end, it's still difficult news to accept and view in a positive light.

All we can do is continue to provide constructive feedback and hope that developers will hear us out and agree to a different compromise.
