Xalanth won't get 24 slots.
Cant we get any better idea on your thoughts on the balance, though?
Should we expect xira/xals to get less than the current 16 slots?
I read the update thinking that there would be a balancing logic, pets in same hp req. Tier with good combat would be por for skilling, less slots, less spped. Wheres in that same tier, pets with poorer stats would be faster and get more slots? And that the better the "rating" [common], [rare], [ancient], etc the overall better it is..
Or is it simply that [common] pets will get fewe than [rare], fewer than [legendary], etc?
