Well...guess I got the answer to my question. I tweeted Muffinus a bit after my last post, asking if we were ever going to get that second taming pass in 8.1. Didn't see a response to the question on Twitter, then I come here and see all these pics of newly tamable beasts on the PTR. Even if the two aren't related...thanks for the answer, Muffinus, if you still read these forums. :)

The Bonestripper Krolusk is tamable, and so now we have the unused blue variant :)

A lot of the skyscreamers around the ship on Stormsea Landing on Isle of Thunder are missing today. Unsure if it's phasing or related to dailies. I've checked others and found them tameable, though.

The Blood-Soaked Tome of Dark Whispers is now on the Flaskzertauren PTR vendor, so we can use it to test out Blood Beasts on the PTR. It's on the first page.

Good to know! It probably does drop from Zul, but killing him on the ptr is practically impossible. Glad that they're allowing us a way to test the new family :)

Lucille, a purple demon spider, remains untamable. Further, she has been changed from a Humanoid to a Demon.

oh my precious skyscreamers! I may force myself to give up Ferocity Leech now and say bye to the Scalehide for a bit. Maybe. thats still sooooo good.

Anyway I checked a couple dread ravens and rocs. Not tameable, but I noticed they all had expanded tooltips. I am used to untameable things having diets (and knowing that isn't necessarily indicative of anything), but the fact they now have specs I found interesting.

There are a few other things that have had extended tooltips added, like the small toads in the Frogmarsh. Not sure if it means anything or not.

BTW, Hypnocroak from Draenor is finally tameable! Sadly (but expected) he doesn't keep his crazy eyes ;)

Not a new pet but, the new tallstrider models really look nice in person. I just love their update so much! :D

Speaking of, has anyone checked on the Turquoise to see if it's been updated for an orange belly?

Oh I'm so happy! Not as happy as I would be if they put in a purple Lucid Nightmare version somewhere, but this one is almost as good!! :D :D

Nope, it still doesn't have the orange belly. :\

We made a lot of requests this expansion for small colour updates to make revamps more faithful to their originals, but none of them were ever addressed. I'm afraid I don't have the highest hopes for that sort of thing at this point. :( At least they're getting around to flagging beasts for taming!

If they haven't done it by now, I don't think they're ever going to do it :(

Awesome!! Thanks. I checked earlier and it wasn't about so I figured it wasn't the right day.

I'v been away from the forums for a long long time. has anyone been able to check Oondasta in pandaria as well? last time i asked muffinus i was met with "Can you solo him yet?" I'm pretty sure that is entirely possible now so it would be nice if we could get an armored devilsaur with troll armor.
