    I don't THINK the Stone Zealot has an attack animation. Well not really. From what I've seen in the Campaign and various custom maps that used him he seems that instead all he does is a Moron Fight Pose (Chin presented up front, hands out to the side) and magically the enemy is damaged (No visual, no clear attack).

    That's because his Moron Fight Pose is him shooting Colossus Lasers out of his eyes. Then again, the Stone Zealot may not be the best choice, considering it's going to look like he's farting shock fields to damage the enemy. The rockets would look appropriate, though.

    He doesn't actually shoot colossus lasers though. I know they added the lasers to the model for a few custom maps like Special Forces: Elite. But the base model doesn't have them (Least not in the campaign, and I know they had to add the Thermal Lances for Special Forces: Elite, they didn't originally have them). Just invisible Death.

    Unless it's Setting Screw and there is some actual attack that is completely invisible unless I'm running on Ultra or something.

    ... No? I'm pretty sure that he had eyelasers in the campaign.

    Yep, he did.

    That's what I thought. Either way, it'd work just fine for the Rockets.

    Fixing the existing ones should be higher priority either way...

    I want my hybrid toss to have Maar's sound set instead of this bleeeeh he has now.

    ex.

    "Do you not see the futility?"

    "Still you cling to hope?"

    "None shall stand!"

    "Surrender to despair!"

    As for replacement pets:

    How about the rifleman from WC3? Import his sound-set for mad lulz.

    Bring back Bob as a pet skin. His attack animation is suited for melee combat as it will simply look like he's karate chopping zombies.

    Scene playing...
    Bob karate chopping every single zombie he could find, while screaming "RAWR! get some!"

    But how will Bob change color? By changing color of his pant?

    How about mini-erebos? I mean, we have bruta. Or corruptor on ground?

    Is it too OP if pred can use melée against enemy in close combat and use range attack against enemy in short-medium range? I mean, look at hydralisks. They shoot spine for ranged, while using melée for close combat.

    I would be all for adding a Pygalisk/mini-Ultra, a mini-Thor/mini-Odin, and/or a mini-Archon as predator skins.

    Archon is actually a great idea.

    Archon and Zergling should both work

    Just a suggestion could u give each pet race it's own different missiles? Like this:
    Zerg pets ( bruta, Zergling, hydra) get acid spew or needle spit or whatever hydralisk's ranged damage is.
    Protoss ( archon, tassadar, zeratul) get scout (campaign) missiles or Phoenix lasers
    Terran ( terratron, murloc, Tauren marine, etc) Unchanged

    zeratul is epic with blink and ranged :)

    You just earned yourself a demotion within the swarm for that.

    It'd be nice if the Lightning Field worked on the move and didn't cancel commands. I don't want to have to spam click if I'm using it to sideswipe enemies.
