I was in Korthia, tamed a Gromit, headed back towards camp, crashed, and now I crash anytime I log into that character. It won't let me delete her either.
Yep! I was in eastern Korthia, I think in that Mawsworn area south of the hub, where I crashed and couldn’t log back in. I tried all the usual tricks but had no luck. Eventually I deleted the character and copied it across from live again.

The only way I can think of that might save the character is to wait until the game offers you a faction transfer, as I don’t think the web-based character unstick service covers test realms. But it wasn’t worth the hassle for me anyway.

Yep, that's exactly where I was.

Not a new tameable beast, but dragonhawk mounts, not including wild beasts and the armored dragonhawk mounts from the mount achievement, they have received a new animation update, the same exact ones as vengeance, hopefully the tameable dragonhawks and mana rays will also receive those new movement animations along with new attack animations, here’s a link to the ptr wowhead dragonhawk mount

Can always hope they add the missing gromit colours! But at least they added gromits :)

For the one person who cares, pink elekks are still friendly and flagged tameable. Brewfest is around the corner, and I recall being able to attack the ones you zap...so maybe?

Oh, do they become aggro? If so, there's a good chance you can tame one. But I thought the dispersal ray just made them vanish. It's been a while :/

And I definitely care! I'd love to see one tameable :)

I don’t think that they aggro. I remember that they are friendly, you start zapping them, and they continue walking around like nothing is happening until they are dispersed by the zap.

I looked up a video (from 2015) and you're right. They stay green and just stand there. :(

I wonder if it would affect the quest in any way if they were made neutral.

The red gromit has been added. The Fierce Gromit now uses it as a variant.

No changes to Razorwings.

The Swarming Corpseflies are still untameable and do not belong to a family.

No changes to Wilderlings.

Amethyst Guardian report: still does not retain its name when tamed.
First Guardian of Kalliope report: still does not retain its name when tamed.

could be too little and too soon to speculate, but this does give me that small twinge of hope...I'd love for a special devourer unlock tame in the future
