True. And they'd be a natural fit for poison effects that did slows or healing debuffs.

BTW Wain, can you bug your secret source about Kungchongs? 8-)

The source is no longer a secret, it's been known for some time it was Jeremy. We were just very lucky to have his attention before he became well known and very busy. He still contributes to Hunter pet stuff, and I suspect it's probably a really rare case for a non-class designer / manager to be so involved in a class issue, so we're still very lucky. Of course nowadays he can also delegate stuff to his minions :D

They have kunchong on their list of possibilities but I have no idea how long before they may become tameable. I suspect they're a similar situation to the dread ravens of Draenor and rocs of the Broken Isles where they tie into local race lore and it may be longer before they're allowed to be tamed, if ever. I really hope that one day they will be, though. Hopefully they'll be grouped with the silithid colossi.

I always hoped they would see dread ravens/rocs and their lore as an opportunity for a cool taming story/quest, instead of a hindrance to it. They've done stuff like this before so they clearly aren't afraid of doing it. And they lore provides a wonderful backdrop and foundation for something like this to really make sense. I always like it when they do something fun and engaging (like Gara). I kinda wish they would have done this with Mechs. That could have made for a really cool story, instead of just a vendor item. Lots of opportunities to be had!

I agree there would have been great opportunities there, like taming of kunchongs linked to rep/quests for mantids and likewise dread ravens for Arakkoa.

They have been untamable for close to two months now. Was never intended for them to be tamable.

Grubs have been updated to their new models! However, they remain untamable.

Grand Gryphons are also tamable. I will post pics later on when able :)

Then I'm guessing the Gorishi Grub got updated as well.
Shame they're not made tameable, though. They should've been tameable a long time ago, to be honest.

Character copy, so that means HD GRYPHON TAMED!

As a dwarf I was excited when gryphons got tameable, but always wanted the hd model. Now we can!

attacks are in melee and grounded not in air. Normal gryphons are weird where their stand still form is frozen.

Why the HECK aren't grubs tameable??? Seriously, does anyone have a good reason for that? I mean, look at caterpillars and try to justify this. Look at the other worms, even! I miss my grub and they won't give it back. So freakin pissed right now.

I have no idea at all why they weren't and aren't tameable.
They are pretty much the most basic type of worm alongside the original vanilla worm. They're the first type of worm you'd expect to be tameable.

Toads - now have fish and raw fish added to their diets, which makes sense. Bufo still scales really tiny.

Lizards - now have a nice new icon, instead of a dried lizard foot :)

No tameable zhevras. Has anyone checked skyscreamers yet? I'm not sure they looked at tameables again, yet.

Thus far, nothing else has been made tamable. I've checked various beasts that should be tamable and they still aren't. Unique beasts like Somber Dawn, Oondasta, and the three rare Silithids are still untamable.

It looks like the Bramblebacks were not intentional. All of them have now been made untamable.

Not too surprising, but there was always a chance...

BTW, I stole your gryphon image for a tweet :D
