So far no change (I check her status in game every day). From what we know it looks like he/she will probably give a questline to BM hunters when finalized. The end of that quest or whatever it ends up being (a set of actions/tasks/emotes) will give you a spirit beast.Hisae wrote:What is the update on this spirit wolf? I've been intrigued since I read and saw that screenshot.
Here are some of my thoughts so far.
- Pretty much all spirit beasts up to this point have used skins that only they occupy. Save for a couple, this has always remained true.
- the fel and void wolves (purple and green) now are present on multiple different mobs.
So Even though it was hinted that we would get a void wolf to tame - will that end up being our spirit beast and not just a rare tame spawn (not a spirit beast - which would open them up to all hunter specs and kinda make sense seeing their popularity).
What I am thinking is that we will get a new spirit beast and it wont be either the green fel or purple void wolf. Maybe the fire Draenor wolf skin or like the other SB's that go against the mold - the dark Draenor (shaman glyphed) skin. It is also possible we will see maybe a new skin that hasn't even been seen yet. If memory serves correct - which it probably doesn't - when a lot of spirit beasts were implemented in a build cycle their skins came with that build and weren't previously datamined. Again I don't think that was the case with all of them but I think a good amount?
This leads me to this theory.
We will get one or two of the void wolves (purple and then maybe a green) that will pop up as a rare tamable beast. We will also get at least one (probably only this one) spirit beast that certainly looks like it will be a part of the Gara storyline. To be able to see/catch this spirit beast we will have to interact with Gara in some way. It is also possible that in the end Gara himself/herself will end up being the spirit beast. Have not really looked into the skin she uses so I'm not sure if it is attainable elsewhere. If not - Gara will probably be our SB - if it is attainable elsewhere and he/she is our SB then I'd expect some extra effects put on her to make a distinction.
What do you guys think?
