Hunter pet specialization:

All pets will have equal damage, health and armor (all can tank or DPS equally well). Old designations Ferocity, Tenacity or Cunning will continue as categories, but as categories of pet families, not as descriptions of their utility

All pets will have Growl and Dash or Swoop

Pet families now each have a special ability – one active, one passive, depending on their category (examples: the passive for Ferocity is a 3% leech, for Tenacity, 10% max health, and for Cunning, 8% movement speed buff)

Each pet family will get one of six different abilities. Examples include a healing reduction debuff, reduced damage, increased dodge, etc.
