The Unicorn/saberhorns-top wish.

Aardwolves and African Wild Dogs are also wonderful creatures that would match a dry troll area?

Any new type of dog that is not a pug or a mastiff. The demon dogs are not a favorite, and I've never been a fan of either breed of dog that they have implemented. The fact the the pug pet scoots its butt on the ground every 5-10 mins make me think the poor thing has really bad anal glands and/or worms and needs medial attention right away. Having an entirely new zone with a different 'branch' of humans would be a great way to put in a new dog breed or two-but of course they wont-if there are dogs in the area they will just recycle the same old mastiffs, le sigh. Poodles, Newfoundlands, Settlers, labs, Portuguese Water dogs, retrievers... there are so many options for dog breeds that are bred to work in the water-but no-those people will have Mastiffs-which are a working class guard dog, cause that is what is helpful to people on ships....

That Australian Shepherd model is currently being used in BfA, however, the npcs that use the model are called Retrievers. They are seen strictly on Kul Tiras as both house pets and hunting companions.

Hi all !
Number 1 on my list: Cloud Serpents!
It feels unlikely but I do want (especially after finding the ones in Townlong flagged as BEASTS). I don't expect it to happen but I can still dream.

Number 2: dem new bat models (currently datamined as mounts only I believe). what cuties.
Cheers, Jonsguide.org

There is only one new model, and it is just an altered Fel Bat model. Is meant to be one of the Forsaken Bats. No idea why they didn't just use the currently existing bat models instead of altering the fel bat.

Only wish is for Unicorn/Saberhorns. Sadly, don't look like it's going to happen anytime soon

Don't give up hope yet! They haven't done the "taming pass" on the Alpha yet, where we discover what is and is not going to be tameable (including new families or additions to existing).

True, there is still time and maybe they will be. Just have to wait and see.

After fiddling around on the alpha, I want the following; Yetis, Crawgs, and Diemetradons. Yetis are literally just horned gorillas, so it's amazing that they're humanoid and not beasts like they once were. They would fit so impressively well within the gorilla family, giving it two new options for models (upright with random horns, gorilla pose with huge horns). Diemetradons are hopefully guaranteed, what with the entire Zandalar area being Jurassic Park at this point, and have the same animations as Basilisks and Crocolisks. Put them in a family already! Finally, Crawgs are just awesome in design, and are shown as pets and mounts to the Blood Trolls. It'd be such a bad thing if they didn't make these interesting things tameable.

And +1 more to Ji-Kun being tameable. Seriously, why is it NOT tameable yet? It's time, Blizzard! Same with Horridon.

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.
Oh wait...you can't!

Name the game these characters are from, and I'll be amazed.

Yetis aren't a possibility. Lore from the second Traveler book revealed that they are very intelligent. They cannot speak, but they are capable of utilizing strategy in combat, name each other, form alliances with other races, and have even believe in an afterlife called the "Afterlands".

I completely agree with Diemetradons. They should become tamable. Crawgs, however, I'm not so sure. They are abominations, but it comes down to whether they can be controlled or befriended by races outside of the Blood Trolls.

Sometimes I don't know what I want till I see it...

And sometimes I want it so bad, I make poorly edited fake images to help ease the pain.

I would love to see the unicorns available as companions, I especially love the pale ones (still persevering on getting the mount)

As I mentioned in the pet update thread, I would love to see a multi-coloured wind serpent as appeared long ago in "The Art of World of Warcraft" book page 58 . It might be particularly popular with trolls !

Have we ever had an alpha/beta go this long without new pet families being even talked about by the devs?

We're 2.5-3 months away from the pre-patch hitting the PTR, so I'm starting to get worried.

They probably won't be added til very late Alpha or early Beta. They won't make new families or perform a taming pass till NPCs and zones are more finalized.

A couple months back, Muffinus posted a tweet asking hunters what they wanted tameable (new and old). So its definitely on Mr. Feasel's radar!
