Yup. It wasn't really clear from the initial post, but that is indeed a screenshot from the PTR. My own tamed baby is now a normal white direhorn. The wild hatchlings hadn't been up, so I couldn't verify that the babies were still in the wild (though undoubtedly untameable), which is why I'm holding off on posting further myself. :)

Never mind, they're up today. And they're friendly to players. (So therefore, they are untameable by all.) And...oh my....

MORE COLORS!

Sadly I know so many people who don't :/ I never got the whole "lets not report something they'll never find out" thing they always find out :lol:

blizzard should change the currently tamed ones to one of the stone direhorn skins because it would be unfair to let some people keep a pet color that doesnt make stompy noises where after the patch hits nobody else can get that....might as well give them a unique skin ;)

Sorry but Blizzard would never do this. Maybe eventually the stone direhorns but I doubt it. What I mean is you cant argue based of fairness sake because people still have pet slimes, ghost hydras and ghost crocolisks as well as the original Grimtotem wolf that ISN'T BM. I don't think Blizzard cares if its fair or not because if they did all of those would be taken away from the hunters that already have them.

Besides, this is hardly the first time a common beast has disappeared from the available beasts list.

Good replacement as any, I suppose. Any of the new Direhorn pets + Magical Pet Biscuit

Granted, this time they won't grow to the size of some kind of Godzilla hatchling.

It's more that your post was about covering up future discoveries in the hopes that they would slip through to live servers than determining what pets are "more" of an exploit. Both you just mentioned were exploits/bugs and needed to be reported, whatever the consequences for the pets.

There's always a best-case scenario, where we report something and Blizzard says "hey, you can keep it!" There's only one way to find that out, though.
However, we are a victim of our own success here. Used to be that these things were discovered on live, which meant in some cases that people did get to keep those pets. Now, since they are discovered on the PTR, it's easy for Blizz to take them away, and they never make it to live at all. Also considering that we have multiple pipelines to Noah here, the chances of anything unintentional making it to live is O.

Porcupines, silkworms, and the two grub skins would like to have a word with you.

The last I had heard, it was not 100% confirmed that those were the only non-stompy direhorns, but the investigation ground to a halt.

I have now checked both the 'Adolescent Direhorns' and 'Direhorns' on Isle of Thunder, and they both have regular stompy sounds. I didn't check the Loa-Infused one, but my instincts say loud :)

First two yes.

But the grubs were found on live and made untameable in the next patch. :P

Unless you're after the white one or just want to visit the babies, then it doesn't matter anymore.

So we're unable to get a quiet, non-stompy Direhorn at all now?

Sorry, I got confused here.

Have the ones on Live changed ID or have the baby model ones on the PTR?

And if the ones on live haven't changed ID it's weird they're no longer stompy!

I'd got into the Thunderforge area before it opened up fully via the cave, and tamed one of the Adolescents there, and it turned out to be stompy. If that changed after the area opened up fully then I might try taming another one.

I didn't actually look at the IDs (oops...), but the baby I'd previously tamed turned white.

According to players who have tamed them, the white ones from the pen are the only non-stompy direhorns, meaning that they never were. I haven't been able to fully verify that, but that's what's been said here. :)
