I discovered this afternoon that Blizzard did actually did make the Dragon Kite a fightable pet!
I know this was supposed to happen with the 5.1 patch. However, when I checked after that patch it wasn't actually fightable then. I moped a bit and then forgot about it in my attempts to get my main battle team to 25.
But today I was randomly wandering around the eastern kingdoms trying to get all the pets captured, and happened to look at my dragon kite. Lo and behold! it was fightable!
Now my dragon kite is level 9.
What, if anything, should I name it?
