You are welcome cheesemay. It seems that when the game goes live the drop rate will be low but how low will be I don't know. You don't have bad luck, it is just that before the first character wipe that we had, the drop rate was higher so that we could test it.
Due to the reason that we now know that pets do drop, can a Moderator please close this thread and if anyone want to ask or find any info about pets, can have a look on Cret92's thread "List of Known Pets"
Thank you all for helping find "what, where and when" we get the pets
