With the new beta patch released and many BfA-level professions now learnable, I decided I would finally learn the new efficiency ranks of Zandalari Mining. So I jumped off the pyramid, called my Rylak, hit the hotkey where I normally keep Updraft...

...and immediately fell to my death.

Image

I was very fortunate that someone with a rez was nearby; I told them that I had fallen off the top of the pyramid and that my pet's slowfall mysteriously did not work.

Then I called my Rylak back and and realized that Updraft was gone. So I checked my pet's spellbook and...

Image

You've got to be kidding me, I thought. They wouldn't just change my Rylak into a completely different family like that! I mean, I knew this was Beta, but still!

So I figured I'd grab myself a port to Draenor and just tame another Rylak. Makes sense, right?

Image

Image

Nope! Every single tameable Rylak ingame, from Gorgrond to Arak, has been merged into the Chimera family! An entire pet family, completely and unceremoniously REMOVED!

This means that the ONLY source of slowfall from Hunter pets now are Feathermanes, and I don't see myself committing to the grind a second time on Beta...

Ohhh....interesting....

I have to admit, I'm intrigued. I'm very sorry to hear about your untimely fall there, but I think many people have been hoping for an overall better merger of pet families that don't really make sense being separated.

I'd like to think this means they might be taking a closer look at pet families, perhaps combining some superfluous ones?

For me, this is good news. It means they've started looking at cleaning up families. Rylaks never made sense as a separate family and it's good that they've been merged. Hopefully updraft will be available some other way.

I'm very glad that they are doing this, but hopefully they'll implement Updraft into the Chimaera family. It will be interesting to see what else they do in the coming weeks :)

Well, overall I have to say I'm ok with this, other than the unpleasant encounter with gravity. It would be nice to see that ability given to chimaeras or some other family, though

I suspect Updraft will become a Yak special ability.

I know I would want to stay Up Draft from a yak.... unless one has a yak wash handy ;)

Would it make enemies run in terror or just pass out? :lol: :mrgreen:

Updraft: family: Yak, special ability
Causes a cloud of noxious fumes that incapacitate an enemy for 5 seconds (3 seconds in PvP).
Only works on enemies that are behind the Yak.

oh good! This makes me really happy! I was always bitter about The updated chimera models being called their own family because blizz came up short on exotics that xpack.
I agree its a good sign that they are looking to slim down the number of families. I think its high time they got streamlined a bit. (Looking at you, carrion birds, birds of prey and cranes.)

I imagine updraft will make a return either in the chimera family or among one of the other families since they said they prefer for hunters to have more than one options when it comes to pet abilities. Until then use disengage before you hit the ground. ;P

Yeah, feathermanes aren't being merged (that we know of!) so the tome won't matter for rylaks and chimaeras.

They may be referring to the fact that some players will need to do the grind to get the Feathermane tome because Feathermanes now are the only source of Hunter Pet Slowfall, since Rylaks are merged into Chimeras and thus no more Updraft.

I mean I could be wrong, and I apologize to all if I am (nor do I mean to put words in anyone's mouth lol), that's just how I read their post after reading the OP mentioning the same issue.

What grind? You do like 3 world quests at 110 and you have enough artifact power to buy the book.

I should know, I have 3 level 110 hunters.

The Direhorn tome is more of a grind, and even then that's not a very big grind.
