That's awesome! I'll take a look at it in WMV and if it looks hi res enough I"ll add it to our database asap. It does look kind of small compared to the mechanical toucan, but maybe it's just a perspective thing. If so, I hope there's a tameable somewhere :)

Going by the saddle on the back of the first parrot and how it has a matching minipet, this might be the next Blizz store bundle.

It sure looks like it. I didn't see the mount version till now. It looks much higher res and hopefully there'll be a non-mount equivalent.

Sure, they likely won't address it at Blizzcon, but it won't hurt to ask, right?

Liked :) Maybe we'll see things in the current or next build, since they fixed the raven and maybe they're now looking at pet stuff.

I had a look in WMV and the mechanical parrot mount looks perfectly good with the saddle geoset switched off - no holes or bad textures at all. So hopefully an unsaddled version will be released soon.

Depending on whether or not Junker Gnomes will be an allied race for Alliance, it could possibly become a unique starter pet for them. That being said, if that were the case then the mech parrot would probably have been added in whatever patch the Junker Gnomes were added.

I'm almost positive that the mechanical parrots are gonna end up being a Blizzard Store Mount/Pet combo. Lol.

Wouldn't surprise me if they get released when the Mecha Gnomes get announced.

I have to agree with Lisaara. They should stop adding cats and update the poor lynx! They are my personal favorite cat but they have been sooooo neglected!

Looks like the mech parrots, at least in mount and battle pet form, won't be around till 8.2.

The new Nightsaber model has been implemented this build :)

Found Alash'anir. Currently classified as an Elemental.

It doesn't look like anything is tameable :( As far as I could tell the cats are in one tiny, area in just two colours, right? There don't seem to be any other cats in Darkshore at all. There are new stags and crabs, but nothing with a new colour, or tameable.

Nope. I updated my mini list over in the other thread with everything that I could find. Nothing newly added is tamable, Alash'anir is potentially incorrectly listed as an Elemental, and the taming pass on KT and Zandalar hasn't happened yet.

Anyone find the tome yet or ways to get it that allows us to get our own Spud?

Nope :( Nobody has reported finding it in any forum I've seen.

The flavour text is odd:
Quote:
"Zul listened to the whispers for many years, then suddenly they began to make sense."


I wonder if it's a clue. Maybe it's been added to Zul's loot table in 8.1? Or maybe it drops from one of his followers in a zone? I think we would have noticed datamined clues if there was a quest chain, but maybe not.

I've farmed various mobs that are tied to Zul (Blood Trolls, Blood Beasts, Zanchuli, Mogu, etc.) and nothing has dropped them. Fair chance that it drops from Zul, which can't easily be tested in the ptr :/

I hope not. It doesn't really make sense from Zul. He's not a hunter or a blood troll. He has ties to G'huun but that's all - it's a tenuous link. But the flavour text does mention him :/

Not a Hunter or Blood Troll, but he understands G'huun and his blood magic and is capable of creating Blood Beasts (does so during the boss fight). The flavor text does mention him and mentions how he understood the whispers from G'huun -- the whispers that granted him understanding of shadow and blood magic.

Besides, assuming it does drop from Zul and it can drop from any difficulty, it might be a guaranteed drop for Hunters. :)
