They added a dialogue option to the leader of the Thornspeakers (Kul'Tiran Druids) for Alliance Hunters, which explains why we aren't getting the Kul'Tiran Druid forms as tameable pets:

I have seen some animals that look like they are part plant. Can you tell me about them?

I suppose you're seeking a new pet?

The magic of this place is deep and profound. It has come to inhabit some of the animals of the region. They are powerful manifestations of nature to be respected.


Essentially, we can't tame them because they're manifestations of nature, rather than beasts.

I'm a little iffy on the explanation, but at least we got one?

Neat! I'm surprised that they gave an explanation, but it is appreciated and understandable.

That is an unexpected nicety that I really appreciate! I'll still miss Abbie the Perfectly Normal Bear, but, I knew it wasn't meant to be from the start.

So they're like beasts that are spirits of nature. Maybe it's a breadcrumb to tame one as a spirit beast. Maybe not, but I'd keep my eyes open for unusual npc emotes or item drops.

If that were so, then they would still be listed as tamable, but would have some sort of requirement to actually do so.

If it were so, it would be an as-of-yet undiscovered secret, and unless you're a dev, please don't presume to know that something isn't a secret.

I'm not presuming anything, it's how the game works. They would still be listed as tamable, but like any family that has required something special to be tamable (Mechanical, Feathermanes, Dire Horns, etc) it won't let you tame them until you actually have whatever is necessary. If you Beast Lore them, they would still say tamable, but when you tried to tame them, it wouldn't work and something would pop-up alluding to what you needed to tame them. So unless Blizz has changed how such things work, which I doubt (seeing as the taming pass itself was never completed), I doubt that they are secretly tamable. If so, great, but I have my own personal doubts.
