My "Sjach" (my "shadow" if you wanted it translated) is my beloved Loque'nahak. My very 1st spirit beast and definitely my "signature" pet/companion through various adventures. Even i am proud owner/befriended with all spirit beasts (and all are named and level capped - gosh i hate see people have spirit beasts unnamed and just use them as a PvP tool) my heart belongs to Sjach. I frequently go back to Zul'Drak and visit Har'koa, just to reassured her that her beloved consort is still at my side, protecting me, guiding me and watching always over me, through spirit world ( i tend to keep him with "spirit walk" on auto just for this reason). Even if i tend to cycle between the other 5s, always depending on the mood i am at the current moment, i simply cannot stay too long without Loque'nahak by my side again. I really wish to had a chance to bond in that manner with my other spirit friends, but seems that my heart was, is and always will belong to him.

side note: i believe i have such a crush on Loque'nahak mainly because he is labelled as "mate" of Har'koa, that i guess gives him a tiny bit more personality to my very eyes than a generic "spirit beast" tag... :oops:

Where many see wild beasts as enemies to be destroyed,I see valuable allies who have simply lost their way...

I'm going to have to go with the majority on this one and cast my vote with Loque'nahak. He was the whole reason I made my beloved little hunter in the first place - though I have come to love all the pets I've tamed dearly, my Loque'nahak Eskendal will always be my most favorite pet of all.
Karoma and Skoll are a close second though! I love wolves, and like people have said before, the Northrend worg model isn't all that appealing, but Skoll rocks that cobalt coloring. And I'd always heard stories about the Grimtotem Spirit guide, but I'd joined too late to actually get one, so when I heard about Karoma in Cataclysm I knew I had to have her.

*snip grammar natzi*
\o/ Derailing but, if English is not your native language (like it's not mine) it's more the reason to try get better and practice you grammar, people appreciate and respect the effort you put into it. Most foreigners speaking english, have often got far better grammar than native speakers. And if you're native and making these mistakes, well.. Shame on you (I'm pretty bad with my mother language I have to admit. I like to write like I "talk" and it's pretty terrible).

Loque by far. I absolutely adore the model and find it is the most gorgeous pet in WoW by far. Skoll comes in second, since I really love his colors and sounds.

Karoma I voted for #3, but I ddont consider Karoma a spirit beast. Having always owned the ghost wolf since 2.3, that model will always be ghost wolf XD

The other spirit beasts I just simply do not like. Arcturis scares me. Gondrias model annoys me. And well... ghostcrawler is a crab :( Even though I tamed him, I just never clicked with the crab. XD

I would have to say Loque is my fave, there's something about the vocal pets that I love. Skoll was my favorite before I found Loque though. These days I find myself using Karoma the most being one of the new "shiny" pets I guess. I really like Ghostcrawler too but man I lose sight of him in packs of mobs because hes so small and transparent lol. Gondria is very nice too and was actually my first Northrend rare that I tamed. Really there is only 1 Spiritbeast that I can't seem to click with and that's Arcturis, I have never liked bear pets tbh, their butts too big. :lol:

Loque is my topmost SB, he's the reason I made a hunter when I started the game, specifically to tame him.

After that, Karoma and Gondria I think.

I can't decide. haha. So I just picked the three that looks the best.

Maybe Skoll. But I tend to use Gondria more.

My "favorite" is split between Karoma and Skoll, I think. I adore Karoma in every way. It's my favorite of the wolf models, and my favorite of the coyote skins. I just love her to bits!
However, I learned to adore Skoll, too. His model is my least favorite of the wolf models, but I somehow find him really appealing. That and he's taken the place of Favorite WoW RP Character for me. xD ((As my hunter's pet, of course, not as literal Skoll.))

I also voted for Arcturis, though he's not one of my top two, because I do love him too. I love all the detail put into him, from the swirls of brighter light on his body to the way his nostrils are lit up. He's not Karoma or Skoll though.

I have 3 spirit beasts, Loque'nahak (Dreamer), Skoll (Reverie), and Gondria (Myst), but Skoll and Loque click with me in a way that poor Myst just can't. Maybe it's because I actually put some real time and effort into finding Dreamer and Reverie (over 3 months of constantly circling the Basin for Loque!), and that they came to me in such memorable ways -- Skoll after dreaming about him, and Loque on Christmas day -- while I just ran into Gondria and tamed her on a flaky whim. I also like the more solid forms for spirit beasts -- I'm still disappointed that both of the Cata ones are transparent.

Here's still hoping for a solid Raptor spirit beast for 4.1.0!

Edit: I just found Arcturis! So now I have all 4 Northrend spirit beasts! Loque and Skoll are still my favourites though.

Gondria!!! I've had her, Loque'nahak, and Arcturis. I released both her and Loque'nahak at one point or another before getting them back. Then I released Loque again because I just couldn't get into him like I thought I would. His model bothers me and to be honest, I think he's pretty darned ugly. But Gondria, I love her colors, I love her softer roar, I love her swirly mist stuff, and I love the model. :) She's my pretty girl and I'm hanging onto her for good.

I have tamed all Spirit beasts and released Skoll and Ghostcrawler. I really hate the northrend worg model and never could get really excited about GC. I'm contemplating on releasing Gondria, but she is so pretty-coloured... I love Arcturis, Loque and Karoma almost equally.

Loque (Haukea) has that awesome roar and he's not completely see-through like the rest, Arc is just adorable and I clicked with him, well her, since her new name is Gamma, instantly. Karoma (Dimecho) I didn't think I'd like, had already gotten every other rare except Madexx, was casually flying through TH and boom, figured why not, and he's been bonding great with me :)

I think my favorite has to be Gondria. I love her sounds and the model is one of my favorites, so the added 'pretty' of the coloring and glowing is wonderful. :D

After that, I adore Loque. Some of the model's flaws annoy me a bit, but I love his lore and he just seems to have a lot of personality. One of my goals is taming him again soon.

Third is probably Karoma. I'm currently hunting for that beauty. I've wanted a ghost wolf since I heard about being able to tame the Grimtotem Spirits. Unfortunately, I was just days from being able to grab one when they were made untameable. :(

The others...don't do much for me. I actually have Ghostcrawler, but he just doesn't really click with me. I keep him on principle, but I don't really feel a bond with him. Arcturis just bothers me for some reason with his fading backside. Skoll, the combination of the rather awkward-looking (to me) Saber-worg model and the constant 'zappy' noise he makes just annoys me. :oops:

Skoll forever and ever. Was the first spirit beast I ever tamed, before I even knew what it was. My npcscan just picked him up and I was like WOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Tamed, heartattacked, have tamed him and will tame him on all my hunters ever.

Loq has always been one of my absolute favorite of the spirit beast family. He realy got a unique model and the roar he does when he charges makes you shiver of respect and fear. <3

Loque is my favorite by far. I love his sleek skin and his sounds not to mention the time I put into him makes me very attached.

Tied for second is Karoma and Skoll. I can't decide which I like more! Both are beautiful and have lots of personality.

I only voted for Ghostcrawler. I don't actually like the look of Any of the spirit beast models, but since I wanted a pet with spirit mend, Ghostcrawler seemed the least objectionable. I've always been fond of crabs as hunter pets, so it's nice to finally have one that's useful :)
