Confirmed, Lightning Paw is hiding in the bushes of Raven Hill Cemetery, Duskwood. Interesting note: I tamed him in my Surv spec! Just couldn't summon till I swapped.

I wonder if that's a deliberate change. It would be fantastic if it was; it would allow hunters to be able to quickly tame rare exotics without having to be Beast Masters or take the time to swap and risk losing them!

Well that makes sense! There was a new NPC added at the hunter lodge next to the goblin and gnome NPCs. And if you talk to him he talks about being in Duskwood feeling like he was being watched! I think NPC's name was Watcher Danuser

Interesting. If there is one, perhaps there is more?

Spotted the Watcher immediately after logging in and got intrigued by his dialogue. A fox y'say!

Is it just the one spawn point confirmed at the moment? Wondering if there could be more. One of the hunters here has been camping in the bush for the last 6 hours and yet to see it.

I camped for 6 hr 37 mins after last confirmed tame but had to log to go do something, came back and lots of hunter no fox...not sure if it was grabed by someone in those 3 hrs I was gone. Hope it doesn't have a crazy long spawn timer :(

the only pic I saw was the one taken in darkness, is there one in a brighter area where we can see what the fox's graphic effects are?

Sorry to be the pessimist in the group but .................. meh. I feel it's a huge shame they chose that model to turn into a spirit beast when they could have easily made a nice NEW model like a Draenor raptor or something a new SB. Shoot even a Rylak would have been AMAZING. Better yet. Why not rework the new fox model and give it a mouth (since that was their excuse why it wasn't a pet) and turn that into a spirit beast. I know I don't have to tame it and blah blah blah but this is just ...............................ugh. I'm sorry but I find that fox model very ugly. :?

I am happy though for those who like /love it. :)

I too would of preferred the new model but I'm happy they're adding (still) more species to the spiritbeast family

Ok, so it seems that the fox has multiple spawn points. I found him at 30/42
  • It sits inside the bushes as a stealthed unit.

    It scales to your level

    You can flare it, or if you have track hidden it will be visible once you get close enough.

    It is non aggressive

    and you can trap it

    It also has a unique electric effect that is more like a spark/short circuit evey now and then, in combination with his allover electric shimmer. He is also slightly transparent.

Now we just have to rustle every bush and see how many spawn locations it has....

Image

Good luck everyone!

I found mine in a different spot, 23, 76.

I noticed the first reported spawn point had one of those bushes that had glowing/blinking eyes on it. I decided to take a hunch and fly around Duskwood to check out other bushes with that same effect on them. Found mine in a bush with blinking eyes in Addle's Stead. Not sure if that's really the way to ID spawn points, but I managed to find him just using /tar and checking out those bushes specifically.

The lightning current/effect on him actually looks like a version of the "Titan's Thunder" effect that shimmers around your pet while active. But he is pretty cool :D

Example of the "blinking eyes" bush I was talking about. Note that this is the first reported spawn location in Raven Hill, but I also found it in the bush I tamed him at (there's two of these at Addle's Stead). Could be coincidence but, with all the weird hidden stuff Blizzard has added lately, I figured it couldn't hurt to investigate.

I KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING IN DUSKWOOD! There is a new NPC at the Trueshot Lodge that worked for the Nightwatch in Duskwood saying he could still feel something watching him in the bushes! He is sitting on something by the target dummies to the right of the building entrance.

Yeah, I didn't notice him until you mentioned him XD I talked to him and he actually does mention specifically "Sometimes you catch a glimpse of their beady little eyes, watching you from the bushes."

So maybe the blinking eye bushes actually are the intended spawn points. Though, I can't remember all the places I've seen them in Duskwood over the years. But I know there's a lot both on the West and East ends of the region.

Though (a bit disappointingly lol), the Watcher from Duskwood who gives the tip doesn't seem to react at all if you bring Lightning Paw in front of him. Not that I totally intended it but with the Rush/Treble NPCs chatting next to him, I had to try lol

I just found him on WRA at 16, 54. I do believe he may only spawn in the bushes with the blinking eyes.

NEW SIGNATURE PENDING... SOON.

Shame that they didn't use the new fox model - would have been really nice. But can't look a gift fox in the mouth, and it's still cool.

Aww, what a sweet addition! Does this make him the lowest level spirit beast available? How low does he scale?

Can anyone who tamed this pet add me on bnet? I'd like to see and hear it, to see if it'll fit my hunter's aesthetic and theme. I don't wanna compete with everyone else if it might not even suit me or my old man toon. Sardonyx#12464

I have horde and ally hunters so faction doesn't really matter. Edit: Thank you, Icharia, for letting me see and hear him!
