Re: Eyes of the Best - Flying pets who can scout from the air?

I'd be for it too, along with eye of kilrogg (its been able to fly in the past). They may be concerned with using it to get around invisible walls, etc, if you have someone with you who can port to a friendly unit's position. I would add emotes to eyes of the beast. /sit /lay /stand /sleep /dance /c...

Re: how to tame Rajani War Serpent + Sliver of n'zoth

Because it is an unplanned tameable pet. A clever use of game mechanics. You don't HAVE to pvp, the guide at the top describes how to do it without pvp.

Incidentally, you can be in a group, just not a raid (for the second part at least). I got all my kills (both parts) in groups.

Re: Shadowlands Alpha/Beta Beast Thread

It is so much easier in a group. A rogue good at WPvP can solo it, or maybe anyone if they're ridiculously good. If you aren't bountied by the time you get the quest, you get it after a few same-faction kills. Bounty hunters will come in groups, and they won't count for the quest (wrong faction). An...

Re: Missing Exotic Skills

I tamed a clefthoof at 60. I'm not sure if it had Blood of the Rhino right after I tamed (I thought I checked, but am tired, so maybe I skimmed over it). I definitely had it after I hearthed and went through loading screens.

Elder Great Turtle on Timeless Isle has a speed of 3.0 seconds in the wild, 2.0 seconds when tamed.

Re: Compiling a database of pets that retain their names after taming

You can rename them still, you just have to make/buy a Certificate of Ownership. I don't know requiring it for pre-named pets was intentional or accidental.

Two npcs that you cannot sliver: Dexter (black nazjatar lizard), Grong (during the alliance quest chain, changes to beast at one point, but not creature family gorilla).

Re: Missing Exotic Skills

Non-exotic skills aren't showing up at uniform levels either. I have a level 19 hunter. Its wolf has its snare, but its bird of prey doesn't.

I wonder if Grong can be tamed with Shadowland
Grong is outside the raid in an alliance quest chain. But he's flagged humanoid most of the time. On part he's flagged Beast, and wowhead doesn't have him flagged Gorilla at that point. If I ever get the sliver, I'm going to double check.

Re: Newly Tamed pet(s) don't have family abilities

No, command pet is for the spec ability. I'm not sure why you haven't got turtle's shield yet. I suspect it might be bugged, because I have a level 19 hunter with a wolf and a bird of prey. They both should have a snare ability, but only the wolf has one. Also a beetle (which has the same family abi...

pet attack speeds normalized again

All my pets now have a base attack speed of 2 (modified by haste). I had a few I knew used to be faster, and I went out and tamed one that is still faster in the wild. It didn't really ever effect dps that much I think, but it did have some effect on enemy casting pushback. Anyways, that's done for ...

Re: Shadowlands Alpha/Beta Beast Thread

Which flying pets currently (or until the pre-patch) would fly up to attack a flying mob? Because I noticed pets I summon while flying 90 yards above the ground don't despawn, they just run around down there. Maybe there's a slim possibility one will glitch and fly around next to you.

Re: Hunter Pet head-turning behavior

They currently opt in/out based off of how far away you are and if your pet is targeted. The distances are somehow modified by the pet model. There are some models that don't stare at the default idle distance, and some that do. But in general, the "always stare" is about 1 yard away. The "attention...

I noticed my unicorn pet doesn't look at me constantly, only when I have it targeted. Its resting distance away from me is outside the radius of creepy behavior.

Re: Shadowlands Alpha/Beta Beast Thread

I didn't remember that about the marsuuls. The geometry of it might look weird with a slightly different model, but I am a little more hopeful. Has anyone here know if something like Blender can be used to swap models and riggings? I kind of want to see what it could look like.
