So I was doing a boss for the first time and after 4 kills I got a boss pet, I continued for another 6 kills before I stopped and started thinking about something.
I was thinking it would be really cool for boss pets to either say, or toggle to say, what amount of kills it took to get the drop, besides just total kills.

I mention this for two reasons. The first is the flaunt of showing how ungodly you are to get it in 1 kill or something.

But secondly cause a large number of people will stop fighting at a boss just to preserve the kill count on a pet to show how lucky they got it to drop. Looking out content to themselves and loot in the community.
Now it's partly a player choice, but its a community ideology of showing wealth/luck, being forced via a mechanic (or lack of) that punishes a players "respect" if they continued playing that content more.
Specifically around getting a pet drop early on via great luck.

So it would be a all round benefit for a simple little display to show "This pet was dropped on the 10th kill", etc etc.

This kind of information is probably not stored yet, so everyone with the pets already would not be able to show it off. Unless they stopped killing the boss when receiving the pet, but not everyone does that. Some people would miss out on this while others don’t. Doesn’t seem very fair.
