Also... the new Draenor-model frost worg uses the existing "frost" skin, which is to say that it uses the light grey wolf skin from Frostfire Ridge. This is probably intentional, but it's also possible they created a new frost skin, forgetting the old one is already called that and there's been a naming conflict. Probably not as I think the new one would have overwritten the old.

I can't see a non-mount version, or any other colours, yet though.

I love it!!! <333 I do hope we get some colour variants and the possibility of wild mobs, and I don't think it's too much of a stretch to imagine they might use it again. :) (I still would love a new tarantula though ;-;)

The second one has 'frost' in the name so I'm guessing it has a neat effect on it that doesn't show up well in a still image. I wonder if they're going to consider replacing the old Skoll models with these for the artifact? It's a shame we didn't get a new wolf based on that awesome boss model, but I'd be happier with these than the recycled Northrend worg if that's indeed what this implies, though I guess we'll have to wait and see if those alternate colour versions show up on the Draenor model.
If either of those become the new Hati model, color me totally happy with Hati.

But I really want that blue-lightning one. My favorite color!

If you look closely at the new 'frost' worg, you can see that it's shiny/metallic, like Pogeyan or the Time-Twisted Sabers.

The frost one looks like it could have the shimmery thing going like Gara and the Felbound Wolves.

Seems like we might get a tameable fire scorpion in Legion. Interestingly, it shares the name with already existing mob. Could this be a possible replacement?

Well spotted! That's the model from Firelands that the Druids turn into. It would be awesome if we could tame a beast version. I'll have to add an image to Petopia as I don't think it was ever added.

Aww yeah. I always wondered why there wasn't a tameable version.

Wonder where they are going to put the herds of mech rabbits for the rest of us to tame, seeing as they stated everyone will be able to get every race's starter pet. :mrgreen:

This makes me wonder if we'll get real non-mech rabbits to tame.

I was thinking that too, but it may also be that when they announced gnome hunters and mecha pets, they didn't have that many models/skins they were happy with as a pet, and it was the best of the bunch?

That said, they've now also updated the rabbits as of legion, and we can already tame porcupines ( :lol: )

Either way I still hope they stick with them being an option (even if regular bunnies are off the table) It would mean that they could add anything that does not currently fit into a tamable family as long as it's a mech pet. :shock:

Mech Pterodactyls, Mech Kunchongs, Mech Thunder Lizards, Mech Sandreavers, Mech Cloud Serpents, Mech Toads, ect. :D

I do know people have always wanted that mechagorilla in Ungoro, even though her model's ancient.

Speaking of models that need help... MAN gorillas are chunky and bad. @_@
