Patch 7.1.5 pets

Unread post by Wain » Tue Nov 15, 2016 7:27 pm

Shieldscar Does are tameable on the PTR (thanks Shem!), meaning the grey doe look is finally available to us. I'd take a screenshot but the PTR is unstable as frak right now - you only have to look at the screen the wrong way and it disconnects - but it's this one:

I checked Thunderhorn (yellow musken) but it's still untameable.

Checking other stuff now, in between DCs.

Huzzah for the doe.
I'm curious to see what else may be found.

I'm hoping for the black wolves in Halls of Valor at Fenrir to finally be tamable, I mean seriously, you give us a nice new wolf and no black option?

I expect they'll turn up post-Legion. Otherwise we could just tame the trash away.

But, they could add it in as a new mob elsewhere! I'd love the black wolf and I was sad to learn it wasn't tameable. <3
(Unless there is a significance of it being only in Halls of Valor that I don't know about.)

That is a more likely scenario. :)

I doubt those wolves are exclusive to Fenryr's pack, so hey, why not add more? :D

Oh those jet black wolves. *drools* Yeah even if they remained only tamable in the HoV I'd happily die trying to get one. :lol: Those were my favorite.

I would love to check those, but it's a bit hard on the PTR. Unless I can sneak past the first boss and all those packs of mobs :(

The mob packs, definitely—swap to marks and use camo. Race change to night elf if you're not already for some extra means of sneaking around, since race/faction changes tend to show up pretty frequently on the PTRs. The first boss, unfortunately not so much—there's a big wall that doesn't go away 'til he's defeated, unless it's changed.

Odd things going on on the PTR. AT least in datamined NPCs. Check out the latest beasts added here:
http://ptr.wowhead.com/search?q=date%3A ... npcs:0+7+1
http://ptr.wowhead.com/search?q=date%3A ... npcs:0+7+1

There are a lot of beasts with names that refer to specific old zones, for example Colossus of Ashi, Collosus of Regal, Colossus of Zora. I wonder if this is going into old zone additions/changes/instanced versions, or if these are maybe adds for themed fights in the new Brawler's Guild.

Intriguing, anyway!

Might be something to do with the new mini Holiday? There is a Silithid/Gate opening themed one right?

I think it could have something to do with that, as one of the links has Frayfeather Hippogryphs which I believed were mentioned in one of those mini-holidays as well! Such mystery. lol


A lot of them have weird classifications. Such as A saurok labeled as an elemental? -shrug-

The holiday thing is possible too! :)

Yeah there's always a few NPCs that are mis-labelled. I suspect to save time they copy data from previous NPCs and sometimes forget to reconfigure some of it afterwards :)

What I saw that was kind of a :shock: moment is seeing Clutchmother Zavas on that list as an elite. So much excitement.

I'm almost positive it's a holiday thing.

Quote: Call of the Scarab (January 21 - 23): "On this date, the Scarab Gong was rung, opening the gates of Ahn'Qiraj. Represent your faction by gathering supplies or by slaying Twilight and Qiraji forces. The winning faction gets to fly their banner next to the Scarab Gong for the rest of the year!"

I've been checking the micro-holidays on the PTR, as they're all up for testing at the moment.

As predicted by folk here, the datamined Colossus of Regal, Colossus of Ashi and Colossus of Zora are all new tank silithids that are part of the Call of the Scarab micro-holiday. They're also all level 113 elites and not likely to be tameable anytime soon, if ever. Fortunately their looks are all tameable elsewhere.

Tonight the Hatching of the Hippogryphs is up for testing, which allows you to sit on a hippogryph egg in Feralas and hatch it, so you have a baby hippogryph companion that sits on your shoulder for the day. While there have been a bunch of old-model hippogryphs datamined in the 7.1 and 7.1.5 databases I have not seen any used at this event, except for Lorthalium. She's classified as a beast, but she is spectral. She uses the new purple arcane model but for the most part that's not really appreciable with the spectral effects. She's actually also friendly until you hatch an egg, then she becomes hostile. She can be killed and drops an item that allows you to extend your hippogryph companion to 5 days duration. Lorthalium is a 110 elite, so it's not impossible she'll become tameable if/when our new family is unlocked, but it's probably less likely because she is spectral (unless she was made a spirit beast?) and it's a one-day event where huge numbers of participants who need to kill her are going to trump any attempts at taming by hunters. My only other thought is it's a shame the art team didn't have time to make some recolours of the baby hippogryphs for the event (say, blue or purple for the frayfeathers in that area). But the old one is still very cute :)

That conversation was actually from November 30th, not today. :) There aren't any definitive plans at the moment, but they are looking into the situation.

Was wondering why my responses were picking up traction again...!
