The Rake was formerly one of the most commonly seen hunter pets due to his attack speed of 1.2, the second-best attack speed available in a tameable pet. The only ones faster were Broken Tooth and the Bloodseeker Bat with a 1.0 attack speed, though there are a few other beasts that also had a 1.2 attack speed. Since pet attack-speed normalization in patch 2.0.1, he has lost this significance. Numerous savannah cats in the Barrens are identical in appearance, and are easily available for taming. Since Deathwing's return, the Rake's only attack is Leaping Rush.
