Broken Bond: Hati does not recognize you, pouncing at an exposed weak point, killing you instantly.

Ironspine Protocol: Enhance Hati's size and constitution, allowing mounting.

Jolt Jerky: Feed Hati a special treat, healing a small amount of damage.
Sometimes, Hati may become too excited and viciously lick your face, dealing Nature damage.

Rubber Ball: Throw the ball for Hati.

Voltweave Fez: Give the fez to Hati.
Aww i love it!!! :D :D :D

Has anyone had Hati unlock yet?

I haven't, but then the PTR is currently having server issues for me. Freezing up, dropping me from flight paths, etc.

Thanks. I'd avoid Nazmir right now. I tried to enter by flight point and it froze up, eventually knocked me off the bird and kept Groundhog Day-ing me. I tried entering on foot on another toon and had similar issues. I couldn't do anything or mount up until I crossed back into Zuldazar.

I might be convinced to go back to BM from time to time for that! Hopefully it's a sign they will gives that to other hunter pets one of those days?

I can't wait to use Hati as a mount. Hope that item makes it live!

Primarily in Storm Peaks and Silithus, once the questline is complete and activated on the ptr.

I was able to start the questline from the Image of Mimiron in Trueshot Lodge. I was in MM spec, so no need to be in BM or have the Artifact equipped. For those not sure where to start it.

When I fly to Stormpeaks, its crash city dumpster fire. But were getting closer!

They must’ve pushed a hotfix or something since yesterday’s build, since I went there and there wasn’t any quests offered by Mimiron.

I successfully started the quest. Currently doing it and taking screenshots.

[Edit] Starting the second half. No crash yet!
[Edit 2] Ouchie, Hati hurts.
[Edit 3] First bug; the portal to Silithus don't works. The screenshots of Storm Peaks are currently uploading on Imgur. (And I'm flying to Silithus from Thunder Bluff)

I was able to get through to Storm Peaks and start the questline.

You meet with Mimiron in The Inventor's Library, which is south of Ulduar. There you find that Mimiron also called upon Grif Wildheart, who was the dwarf that joined us when we originally acquired Titanstrike.

Image

Mimiron then starts to triangulate data using the Thunderspark (the powersource of Titanstrike) to try and found out where Hati is. As he does so, rifts to other locations begins to open and send hostile proto-drakes and vrykul out to attack you.

Image

After this Mimiron is able to determine that Hati's essense has been split and can be found at places where he committed great sacrifice. The first location is the Temple of Storms in Storm Peaks, which is where Hati took the brunt of the explosion when Titanstrike was overloaded.

However, more rifts open up and Silithid start to pour out and attack you and Grif. (I did check these to see if they're tamable. They're not).

Image

Image

After defeating the Silithid you are then sent to Storm Peaks to meet with Thorim and see if that part of Hati's essence can be found.

Image

When you and Grif arrive at the Temple of Storms, you find that Hati has slain many Vrykul and Proto-drakes, and has also bound Thorim in lightning.

Image

When you're ready to start the encounter, you talk to Grif whom calls out the Hati. However, the latter does not recognize Grif nor you and begins to attack.

Image

The fight itself wasn't that difficult. It may have been do to my ilvl or that the fight itself wasn't designed to be particularly difficult. Hati will focus on Grif's bear or on your pet most of the time. He will occasionally send a lightning strike in a line towards you, which hurts if you stand in it. He will also cast Titan's Spark, which is an interruptable spell that deals ~5-10% of your health in damage. He will also focus on you and chase you down for a short time, but a Concussive Shot will slow him and prevent him from catching you.

When you get Hati to ~10% of his health, he will become Unfriendly and unattackable. You are then able to use the Thunderspark to absorb that part of Hati's essence into it.

Image

Once that is done, you are told to travel to Silithus to find the other half of Hati, which is fading fast.

Like Inay I also cannot get into Silithus at all. Shortly after entering the zone I am booted out.

Edit: I improved it, but didn't want to double post it so am just putting it here and taking down the original one I had here. And I hope it amuses someone. :)

Silithus was fine for me. I'm just winding up the quest chain now and I'll write it up.

BTW, if you use click-to-move, it crashes the game immediately in Storm Peaks.
