Add-on for World of Warcraft
Available from AddonsWoW.
ZonePet keeps a companion pet active, preferably with a pet from the zone you are in.
You may have collected hundreds of pets, but you never remember to summon them so you are missing out on some fun content. And when you do summon, you always summon from among the same few, or maybe that pet just doesn’t fit in.
ZonePet checks all your pets and tries to summon a pet that is native to your current zone.
If you have no pets or only a few pets from the zone, you may see a random pet instead.
If ZonePet summons a pet you want to keep around for a while, you can lock it in so that it stays your pet until you choose another.
And you can go back to the previous pet if you missed it.
If you want to summon a particular pet, ZonePet will search your pets for a pet matching the name you enter.
Install the add-on and when you log in, you will summon a pet automatically. After 5 minutes with the same pet, or when you lose your pet or change zone, a different pet will be summoned.
Read the pet’s name and description in the Chat or by mousing over the MiniMap button. These descriptions can be very funny – yet another way we are missing out on some good content. And if your pet has an interactive command, see what to type.
Bonus for sneaky types: no pet will be summoned while you are in Stealth mode and if you enter Stealth mode and are flagged for PvP, your pet will be dismissed so as not to attract unwanted attention.
Mouse over the MiniMap button to see some options for controlling ZonePet.
Other settings are available through Game Menu > Interface > AddOns > ZonePet.
Type ‘/zp’ in the Chat window or click “Show Slash Commands” in the AddOns panel to see a list of commands.
Mouse over the MiniMap button to see details about your currently summoned pet (if any) and to operate the ZonePet add-on.
- Left-click – change to a different pet.
- Shift + Left-click – switch back to the previous pet and lock it in.
- Alt + Left-click – lock in the current pet until you left-click or use ‘/zp new’ to get another.
- Right-click – dismiss your pet (you will not get a new one until you left-click or use ‘/zp new’).
- Alt + Right-click – hide the MiniMap button (use the /zp commands to operate ZonePet or to bring back the button).
- /zp new – change to a different pet.
- /zp about – show info about your current pet.
- /zp back – summon & lock in the previous pet.
- /zp lock – lock in the current pet until you left-click or use ‘/zp new’ to get another.
- /zp <name> – search for and summon a pet by name (searching is case-insensitive and will find partial matches).
- /zp dismiss – dismiss your pet.
- /zp fav – summon favorite pets only (if you have enough).
- /zp all – choose from all your pets.
- /zp mini – show or hide the MiniMap button.
- /zp dupe – list any duplicate pets.
Zone Pet is a companion add-on to Zone Mount which you can also get from AddonsWoW. While the two add-ons are similar, they are completely independent so you do not have to install both (although I hope you will).
