Other information
Level learned


Call Pet is used to summon a hunters pet that has been dismissed or has run out of range and automatically disappeared. Since a hunter is able to have up to 5 active pets, there are actually five different abilities (Call Pet 1 to Call Pet 5), one for each active pet.


If you use [Dismiss Pet] when in battle, casting Call Pet will bring back the pet with the same Health as when it was dismissed.

If the pet auto despawns because of range, casting Call Pet will bring back the pet with Full Health.

Once a hunter learned the ability Call Pet 2 he gains the option to group his Call Pet abilities into one button. This button expands if clicked on it offering to chose between all active pets.

If a pet is available in the slot, the name on the tooltip of the ability that summons that pet says "Call <pet name>" (which cannot be used in macros - bummer) and the icon changes to that of the pet.

Hunters start with Call Pet 1. Call Pet 2, 3, 4 and 5 are trainable at levels 18, 42, 62 and 82 respectively.

Tips and tactics

Call Pet is very useful in situations where you have had to run away from a mob and your pet is almost dead. Send the pet after something a fair distance away, run in the opposite direction and when out of range the pet will despawn, when you cast Call Pet, the pet will reappear with full health.


Patch changes

  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.1 (2010-10-12): The ability has been split up into 5 different abilities, one for each active pet, it is available from the start, and the quest Taming the Beast is no longer available.
