Not a recolor. It was already in the database at the same time of Gondria. Gondria was just released first. :)

Ok maybe not a recolour but still, nothing new.

It wasn't in the game before, therefore it is new. ;)

The fact that they're adding 8 new beasts to be tamed in a more challenging fashion is amazing and we should be praising it, even if all the models aren't brand new. Considering everything else they put out with the patches, we should be happy they give us new pets at all and not just expect them to fall in our laps. :)

^This, completely. We're the most spoiled class and still we complain when we get something new. It's amazing to see people doing this.

Ironic; Ankha could take out a raid, but a naked hunter can tame the beast without a problem.

Agreed. Besides, these 8 were released at once, so you need to judge them as a package (once we know the entire contents of said package).

I'm really grateful of the special attention that hunters are getting all of a sudden, and I love the idea of a new taming mechanic...

But seriously? Another cat spirit beast? I just don't know what it is about blizz and cats... they have the most skins available for taming, other than maybe Wolves or Birds of Prey, and they even have an extra ability. They're almost at the level of exotics at this point! And on top of this they're adding another cat to the ranks of spirit beasts. I don't know. I'm still pretty happy that they added 8 new pets, but still, a change would have been nice. At least they added a spirit owl too, although that's not really my taste either.

We've only seen two of eight potential pets. You can't really make a final judgement until you've seen them all.

Considering all of the other content they're working on for 4.2, we're lucky they're adding this at all.

Yeah, I know that I'm being a little Preemptive, but unless i see a spirit Beetle, Scorpion, or Silithid, i still won't be happy with this. I also think that these will be the only two spirit beasts, or at least if there are more, they'll only add 1 or 2, because if they added so many spirit beasts it'd be kinda shunning the other specs of hunters.

Yeah, I'm still grateful that we're getting this kind of attention, it's been a while since blizzard added something for hunters specifically.

Well, since it's the PTR, I'm sort of hoping it doesn't turn out to be a Gondria clone and it instead becomes the spectral, Spirit Beast version of Sambas.

::sigh:: Why not give them unique looks instead of taking a pet that already excist and just giving them the "misty" effect. Skoll n Loque still seem like the two best for me.

You realize that no other single spec of any class in the game gets the art department working on making them new beasts every patch? Please don't act like you deserve more attention. Expecting unique models just for a tiny subset every patch is entirely absurd. Three spirit beasts this patch, one with a brand new skin and effects, is pretty damn good if you ask me. And since there are other unused spirit beast skins in the database left over from previous patches of course you can expect they're going to use them. It'd be a tragedy if they never made it into the game.

Funny you brought up Skoll as somehow more unique or different. Using your reductionist arguments he's just a saber wolf recolor with a few lightning effects on top.

I was trying to get that message across but you did it so much better. :)

100% agreed, Wain. And there are still six beasties to go, so we're even MORE spoiled this patch than usual.

Edit: six, not five. My brain is leaking.

I gotta admit, a bit surprised by some of the complaining.

There's 8 new pets out. We've only found 2? I could be wrong but it sounds like majority are still out there waiting to be discovered. Why not wait til we see all 8 before people get up in arms about it being a cat/Gondria clone/recolor/spirit beast/etc.?

Agreed. Still too early to start the complaints.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it's the skin listed as "green". The pic on Petopia makes it look pretty greenish, but in WMV is always looked very white, much like the pics above.

*dies* That's excellent news then! :D Thanks for the clarification/correction! :)

I love this skin :(

When the Spectral Sabercat skins (purple, aqua, and white) were first datamined before Gondria was released, this white one was the one I said I wanted to tame. I love all three skins, but I'm in an odd position right now; no stable slots. Not sure what I am going to do, as if they decide to release Skoll's other colors, I'm in an even stickier spot; I love the gray skin : /

I'm just going to save this post and paste it every time the argument comes up. He's so much better at explaining it than I am.
