They said that they had a 'good replacement' for the Stunted Dire Horn. I wonder.... :D

I'm still crossing my fingers over those though. :)
Wouldn't it be cooler though if one day we've got a "Phoenix" exotic family that's a like a bird of prey (disarm) with a battle rezz? IIRC we don't have any exotic bird families, and I feel it's worth waiting for. I imagine we could even get a third model one day, fire phoenixes (Al'ar, the Hyjal rare), air/thunder phoenixes (those birds) and water/ice phoenixes (a potentially cool future model).
Just saying if this ever happens, they might hafta change one of those two abilities as Exotic pets have thus far never shared the effects of their exotic ability with any other family.

How bout a Dispell or Decurse type thing? 'Tears of the Pheonix'?

Yeah, I just uploaded pics of the things that looked the most tameable. I have no idea if they will be or not. :)

That was my point though, giving hunters who want battle rezz an option - quilen or phoenix.

I think Phoenixes should be tameable. We already have Heart of the Phoenix. lol But I don't think it should.. share an Exotic ability with a different Exotic.

:D I think we should just be able to tame every animal :( I don't think Papa Blizzard will ever give us that though.

Looks like in the newest build there is an updated snake model! It looks pretty realistic, like a python! :D

I'm not normally one of those people that wants to tame every new model that's made, but... that snake. I want it. Now.

I actually don't care for the new devilsaurs. They're too.....lumpy. I love my current two. *huggles Apollyon and Abbadon*

However, those dire horn/triceratops things are freaking AMAZING! Their dino-ey awesomeness leaves me feeling slightly tempted to return to WoW. :lol:

I have to ask...

Does anyone else think the Pterrodaxes would fit well into the Bat family?

Give some variety to an otherwise forgotten pet species for most people (I honestly only remember when I come to petopia <_<), and give hunters something else that's new and shiny.

Maybe rename the Bat family to something to encompass them both? (Not sure what though, Lol)

And although the species are completely unrelated, there is evidence in fossils that shows that some breeds of Pteranodons actually walked/flew like modern day vampire bats.

I think bats should remain bats, even if pterrodaxes/pterrorwings are given a family that's functionally identical. It's the same issue as with kunchongs and silithids; or wolves and foxes - completely different animals that share animations but shouldn't be considered one family.

That's probably why new bat models (which will come, sooner or later) will use the proto-drake/firehawk/pterrorwing animation skeleton.

Not to me personally, mainly because they are also very terrestrial? Also probably because I can't see these things ever being tameable. Ever. Even though they look really nice, they remind me too much of protodrakes and we never got those either. :c
