Red & blue runed darkhounds have flame variants

#1 Unread post by Wain » Wed Jun 12, 2019 10:55 am

I just noticed this last night when taking new model shots for Petopia: the red "runed darkhound" has two look variants. The base skin is the same, but each has a different coloured flame: one has properly red flames, and the other has brighter and lighter reddish flames, which I'm calling pink:
Fortunately both options are in the game on at least one NPC: the Vargul Blighthound in Zul'Drak has red flames and the Hungering Plaguehound in Icecrown has pinker flames. I haven't been able to check Grimkor's Hound personally, as it's a quest spawn for a quest chain I've already done and I'll need more time to check it. But from Wowhead's info I'm pretty sure it's the pink one too.

Screenshots (updated for clearer images):

There are also two flame variants of the blue runed darkhound, but in that case one just has weaker / fewer flames than the other. I've now divided them into separate looks:

Thanks :) Yeah, I love how we can still find little things that have existed for ~11 years now!

I've updated the two original posts with good screenshots of each, and links to the blue runed darkhound variants, which I've now divided into two looks:

Wain, look for a post I made about Rendrak. He has a minor uniqueness to him, too. After taming, he has a faint blood mist in his mouth.
