Some of these may be undead, some abberations, but I added them just to be sure.

@Qraljar. Yeah, I posted some of them on the previous page. I think that because of how many undead beasts are being added that we may get a new family, or at least new additions to existing families :)

Yeah, I like to think they'll be more lenient with undead pets. It would make sense, at least.

But everything is kind of shaky at the moment. There are some things that I imagine are very likely to be tameable, though. Like the moths.

I really really hope those are tameable. I want to run around with a pair of them.

With so many new models being so skeletal in design, maybe they will finally consider letting us tame some of the undead/skeletal beasts we already have in game.

I'm definitely going to have to start adding them to the database at least, in case they do!

What with the WoWtools modelviewer somewhat working, I hope you don't mind if I post pictures of color variations here of models that will load. Important to note is that for some creatures, Blizzard seems to be continuing the trend of adding alternative looks, like different stag antlers. I can't separate those looks, so they will look a bit weird.

I'll do it in chunks so the models can have at least a bit of space to breathe.

*As you may be able to see, the alt skins for the wild ArdenwealdStag model do not work. But the ones on the ArdenwealdStagmount do work, and the amount of skins are the same in the list, so I would assume that they are roughly the same.

Gonna be hard to choose an Aetherwyrm color. They all look great.

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.

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

*Like with the stag, the DecomposerMedium seems to have different head, mandible, mouth, etc. options that Blizzard uses for variety in creature type, which I can't separate with this tool, but it gives you a fair indication what type of creature you're looking at.

Though unlikely, it is possible that these gargoyles may also be tamable.

Decomposers are some of the coolest bugs they've added by far. The small worms look to still use the same crocolisk animations as every other grub, while the medium decomposers look like they use the krolusk animations. Assuming they are tameable, what family would they fit in? Clearly the wasp goes in wasp, but would the grub still be a worm? Would the medium decomposer also be a worm, or would it go to krolusks? I kind of hope they both go worm, because worms totally need more love.

I'm loving the gold ones though. Best color by far.

Krolusk or beetle, I think. As for the grubs, I don't know if they'll be made tamable or not. Their texture quality isn't very good - one of those mobs that looks fine when it is small, but not so much when it is bigger.
