Hurm....

Beavers. I think we were meant to have these already. They pop up when you call your Dire beasts in some areas. Especially cool would be the thunder beaver model.

Lynxes: More of them. We only have two colors. A tawny brown and orange red. Why not add more to the game instead of 50 versions of the tiger model? Not that I dislike the tiger model, but spread the love.

Wolverines: No models in the game just now, but we have 'Wolverine people" So I'd really like wolverine pets.

Rats: With 55 slots, who wouldn't want at least one ROUS?? A big ol rat would be fun to sick on people.

Ferrets/weasels: I think they could be made interesting in Wow. Maybe have them be 6 legged or something, but fun.

Sprite Darters. Want these something fierce. Most especially with the Fairy Dragon mount coming. If we could tame Sprite Darters, my wife would "SQUEE" for days.

The body and wing textures are all there but WMV has no "combined" skin data, where the model will display the body and wing texture together. So you end up with a body with blank wings. A few other models do this too. If there's a workaround for this I don't know it.

Why they didn't use them for the new ToT bats, I don't know.
Oh I see. I checked the archives for 5.2 and sure enough, that's what I had seen. Thanks for explaining it xD

I wonder if they had intended to use these for the ToT bats but were not able to complete the model before patch release - after all, it's not like shiny new bat models would be imperative to the raid or anything. Or maybe they are a WIP intended for upcoming patches. Your guess is as good as mine, heh. Actually, your guess is probably better than mine.

I guess I should officially add the new bat model to my list of desired tames.

They could make a good replacement for the Canopy Screechers in Krasarang Wilds also. Those guys scared the living crap out of me the first time I saw them while flying around the tree line (without knowing they existed pffft). Because of that, I like 'em. It would be kinda neat if they made them more special looking.

Maybe we should have a Rodent family one day (except porcupines, but including gnome-bred Giant Nether Hamsters). Ability? "Cute charm" that works like succubus's seduction. :D

Lot I forgot to add, now that I think about it. Talbuks would be awesome, they can go with goats, as can the ram mount models. There are only but so many in game, but still, the same goes for sporebats and they made those tameable! Heck, even in BC sporebats couldn't even learn anything like bite, claw or smack and they were made tameable. Diemetradons would be pretty awesome, we can add them to crocs if anything. Hydras, hydras, hydras, gotta have those toooo! And the Isle of Thunder compies would be nice as well, their cuteness taunts me. I'd love to have a Northrend yeti or even a Pandarian yeti, we could put those in with gorillas or even make them their own family. The whole "they're intelligent, can't do it" line doesn't make sense... we're able to tame powerful spirits of nature, one of which (Loque'nahak) being the mate to a -god-. Spirit beasts are quite possibly demi-gods all on their own, yet we're able to just tame them in a few seconds (except for the new porcupines and such). The standing-on-two-feet yetis, I could see them being untameable still, as they are a bit too human. But the Northrend yeti is so bestial and monstrous! I'd love to have one! Also, the rockflayers from Outland. Why are they humanoid? Why do they drop cash? I've seen 0 signs of intelligence in them. I mean, if I saw one talk, that'd be different... come on, Blizzard! Give me a rockflayer! Just make it easy on yourselves and put them in the Ravager family!

/rant over, sorry guys. ;_; So many things I've wanted to tame over the years... this would probably be more spaced out but I only signed up recently even though I've been a Petopia reader for a few years.

On both yetis and rock flayers, there's lore we just haven't heard about yet. Rock flayers were an option for a playable race, albeit fairly low-priority one. Yetis have a culture we haven't seen yet.

5.2 is such a tease for me. So many dinosaurs, but only Direhorns and Devilsaurs are tameable. It would be great if they added the riding raptors on the Isle of Thunder as tameable, but most out of all I wish they'd add the new Skyscreamers/Pterrorwings and the gem/stone Direhorn colours. New shiny things aside, my love still goes out to hydras. :)

I actually would love to see a blue corehound. I think it would look pretty awesome and just a simple recolor so wouldn't take too long.

1. ALL of the Dinosaurs.
2. More kinds of birds, like the Thunder Birds.
3. Fel Stalkers. Merely wishful thinking, of course, but considering they aren't sapient and Hellboars were made tameable, one can assume that there's a chance for these as well, but then of course they're still demons that warlocks can summon, so that's essentially a giant wall that needs to be gotten over.
4. Hell hounds.
5. Hydras.
6. The new bats.
7. Most kinds of Cloud Serpents, considering most Thundering Cloud Serpents and Heavenly Cloud Serpents appear to be sapient.
8. More Sporebats.
