I saw new spiders, stags, and weird fairy grubs.

I want those fairy grubs so bad. I will be a total fanatic and suggest they get added as pets day one when we can play it on alpha or beta. Stags looked amazing too, being non-glowing unicorns and HUGE antler elk.

So, this confirms a leak I heard. That means that Hunters will be able to tame a spirit cat with a new model.

I have also spotted cats made of armor and some sort of death hound.

Wow, the cinematic was great. I'm currently trying to go back and determine if there was one or two new spider designs present. The stags look great. The grubs may or may not be potential tames.

There were scythehorns there. Maybe we'll see some of the other unused colours!

I took the liberty of timestamping every beast shown. I'm not sure if the first spiders are a new model or just a new color for our normal spiders, but there's one spider that was literally a green-tinted version of the mount.

0:48-0:50 - New spiders, looks like a spiky model
0:52-0:55 - Fairy grub worms, blue, purple, and yellow colors
1:07-1:08 - New runed elk in Ardenweald, one with huge antlers and one with short Talbuk-like antlers
1:09-1:10 - More close ups of the fairy grubs, additional green color, confirmed in Ardenweald
1:12-1:13 - More close ups of new spiders, looks like the mount, found in Maldraxxus
1:13-1:14 - Brief glimpse of an older maggot model
1:19-1:20 - Brief glimpse of a non-glowing blue Dreamrunner with a dark blue body, zone of Bastion
1:22-1:23 - Brief glimpse of black cats with black and purple armor
1:43-1:44 - Better view of the black cat, has a spectral tail

Total:
1(?) Cat Model, maybe two if the last one was different
2(?) Spider Models
3(?) Stag Models
1(?) Worm Model, 4 colors

There is also the death hound shown briefly during the showing of the new raid

Yeah, but those aren't beasts. I doubt they'll let us tame skeledogs, even though this is the perfect time for it.

They might. We have other things that are undead, so it is possible. Not likely, but possible.

That's been the valid excuse for them to finally get the flag for taming, but we've yet to have that. Undead beasts definitely need to be a thing this expansion, but holding one's breath isn't the best idea. I do hope they finally let us grab zombies and skeletons though. Been wanting a skeleton raptor for ages.

And what looks like maybe an adult version of the grubs, or perhaps a related beast:

Fancy stags. I get the impression they may have used the Draenor talbuks as a starting point, then let their imaginations run.

Dreamrunner, though I think it's an already tameable colour:

The armoured spirit cats. I wonder if these are beasts or something akin to druids or some other kind of shapeshifter:

Flock of bats. Hard to tell much in the blur:

A skeletal creature. Probably not tameable:

Those moths are cute. Probably going to be battle pets at best though. Spiders are looking pretty baller though.

Yeah, my bet is on them being battle pets.

The spiders are recolors of the mount.

I saw the moths on stream. They're pretty big and detailed. They're probably gonna be tameable in the moth family.

Then they may be tamable in that case. Would be nice to have an updated moth instead of the old TBC one.

Nice catch, I couldn't screencap it quick enough. Would be a nice addition to the stag family.
