This is excellent news! I feel so spoiled!
A couple days after complaining that the direhorns only came in one color...

We get a mini feathered-raven lord OR phoenix (no way to tell until the PTR's back online)
We get TWO new colors of direhorn companion...
We get a self-cooking robot, possibly inspired by Disney's Beauty and the Beast (Animated kitchen appliances? French name? No one?)
We get a mini-eel pet...
AND we get a whole new python model and a frog model to come. Plus the future stunted direhorn.

I'm so happy right now.

Iknowright?


Pterrorwings and those pythons as tameable hunter pets, and this is for me, indubitably, the best patch ever.

New changes on the server (as well as pets that will be added as they can): the Elder Python's skin is that of the new 'python' model that everyone has been ooh'ing and aah'ing over. In addition, the Electrified Razortooth is presently being worked on. It looks like a white outline at the moment, with no 'filling in' on the model. But it looks as if they are using a chibified version of a Diemetradon; it definitely has a fin.

The 'Ji-Kun Hatchling' is, indeed, the baby bird-thing that I had been wondering about. Looks like I'm going to have to obsessively run LFR, now.

Also, the Kun-Lai Runt has a new icon. As does the Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm, Sporeling Sprout (I think), Wind Rider Cub, and potentially others I didn't notice.

Thunder Baby Croc icon.


Also, for the sail on the back, I hope they make a tameable adult version on the isle. Dark blue lightning croc with sail as hunter pet would be sweet.

Right?!

Now to wait for either a new (tameable) Diemetradon model, or croc with that color scheme+sail on the back.

Also funny how, in a thunder-centric patch, there are no Thunder Lizards. xD

You know, I'm annoyed they can add unique icons for new pets like that croc, which could have easily just used the regular croc icon, but can't add some new icons for some of the hunter pet families that need them. >_>

I agree, making all the hunter pet families have exclusive icons should be a higher priority.

Except everyone who plays the game can have minipets and only hunters can have hunter pets. I get the reasoning there.

Maybe toss us one every once in a while until they're all filled out properly. :)

I certainly understand that point. I just don't think it's too much to ask for a new icon when they create a new family. What's the point of even having icons if you can't tell your pet's family at a glance?

(Just grumpy about not having a shale spider icon.)

Well, the minipet shale spiders have an icon, don't they? Could always steal that one. :D

That razortooth is going to be PRECIOUS! Eee!

A version of the mini-pet icon would be great!

/re-rail

Love the coloring on the new python, and the Spawn of G'nathus is just adorable. *pinches its cheek* Now I'm doubly motivated to farm those Dinomancers!

Spawn of gnathus is probably going to drop off of gnathus.

http://www.wowhead.com/npc=66467

He also has mobs called "Spawn of G'nathus" around him. I have yet to try my hand at fighting him but now I guess I might have to.

Don't worry, you won't have to!

Sorry for straying further off topic, but I just wanted to comment on this.

It does seem odd for so much work to be put into an icon for a single battle pet which, while undoubtedly cool, will probably ultimately lay buried in the majority of people's pet journals along with hundreds of other cool pets. This is compared to a pet family which will be viewed by many players every day for the rest of the life of the game. At a guess (and it IS just a guess), I suspect it's more political. That they may have more trouble justifying their time working on anything but new content. It's just an impression I get, and I could well be wrong.

At least we got better icons for the majority of the "bad icon" families in 5.1. I know this was Noah's doing, but he can only swap them if the icons already exist. There's only a few families that really badly need them now, basilisks and shale spiders being the most prominent. As far as I'm aware there are no icons that look like either. I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

Battle pet shale spiders just use that abstract "coloured stone" icon. Even though it doesn't look like a shale spider, perhaps it's better than the current spider icon.

The single basilisk battle pet just uses some kind of claw icon, from memory.

Apart from those, it'd be nice to have a real dog icon instead of a spiked collar, and probably also a crane that wasn't wearing a helmet and a monkey that isn't just a suggestive hand/banana pose. But at least the current icons for those are unique to the families.

After carefully going through pet by pet, rather than just skimming, icons that I see that have been changed:

Kun-Lai Runt
Nexus Whelpling

I was incorrect about the others. Faulty memory and I wasn't comparing at that point. :) But those two have definitely been changed.

Hmm, that seems silly. It should drop from him. :P

Weird, since they both had really good, accurate icons to begin with.

If we're talking Live compared to new PTR icons then:

I can see why they changed the Nexus whelps as it was actually an icon of Maly rather then being a whelp. I've seen the one they replaced it with and all they did was change it to an actual whelp icon with a little head piece that actually looks like the whelp instead of a grown dragon, which actually brings it in line with most of the other whelp icons. :) I also always wondered why they used an icon of Maly/Kalec instead of a whelp, but that's just me.

I wouldn't be terribly surprised if the Infinite Whelp and the Green Proto-Whelp were next in line to get their icons changed. Infinite being another grown dragon icon and the green proto having a Nether-drake icon.

The current Kun-Lai Runt icon on live looks like a bear paw from the druid skill list rather then anything else. :3 The new one is a Kun-Lai yeti face!
