Call Pet is a hunter ability initially learned at level one (Call Pet 1). It is used to summon a hunter's pet that has been dismissed or has run out of range and automatically disappeared.
Additional versions of Call Pet are learned at later levels, allowing the hunter to optionally summon their second, third, fourth, or fifth pet.
Versions: Call Pet 1 (L1), Call Pet 2 (L10), Call Pet 3 (L42), Call Pet 4 (L62), Call Pet 5 (L82)
Hunters used to learn this ability at level 10 by fulfilling the Taming the Beast quest chain.
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.
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.
/Patch 4.0.1 (12-Oct-2010): Automatically learned; different versions added.
Patch 2.0.3 (09-Jan-2007): If your pet has been recently revived by using "Call Pet", it will no longer reset back to full health.
