Those four all come from one event (that seems to keep cycling) in Bastion, where a Kyrian tutor is lecturing her students about four kinds wildlife native to the zone. When prompted she will summon one (a rare) that you can kill or tame. They all seem to stay ghostly, even after dying, rebooting, etc.

Are the ghost mobs just slightly transparent versions of their normal counterparts? Or do they have any special effects to them?

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.
Oh wait...you can't!

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

I mean, spiders deserve love, and I'm glad the best spider model was used, but I'm not too keen on it being ghostly. We need more solid creature to fill that family of dead things.

I'm guessing that's gonna be Shadra though, since the Horde failed to stop the poor creepy crawly from being siphoned by whatsherfacethatliterallydidn'tmatter in Zul'Dazar and later Atal'Dazar. We do go to Troll Hell to fight that giant troll dude with the silly name, and we do see loas there. Would be fun to tame Shadra's spirit if possible though.

I don’t think that we’ll be able to tame Shadra. There have been exceptions to us taming Wild Gods or Sentient brings, but that shouldn’t be the norm. Just make an npc that uses that particular variant. :)

If we see something similar for the Hir'eek model (but red), I'll definitely assume it's a Shadra model. But right now, it would make Shadra unique.

The gorgeous white windsteed / kirin is now tameable:

This is the one that matches the old mount and I really love it :) It's available as a Steelscale Stag, north of the Temple of Courage.

These beautiful shiny white vulpin are also now tameable:

These are level 60s up in the nw of the zone. There are lower-level ones that currently aren't tameable, but should hopefully be by launch. (Also, I think there was a tameable one early in the Alpha, but its colour was changed or it was removed, so that may be why you're feeling a sense of deja vu).

Also the adult and juvenile dark purple teroclaws are now tameable. As with the Ghostpelt Vulpin, these are level 60 but there are lower-level ones that should hopefully be tameable by launch.

I'm not one for dark and edgy, but I love those dark and edgy birds. Hell, I love all the thunder isle birds.

Wow I really love those birds, great find! I'm getting more excited now about the xpac. They said it'll be late 2020.

Which makes sense, considering all that is happening.

I added another undead beast look that was added in the last patch, though this one may not become tameable because the model isn't. Undead Aqir Serpent: .

Maybe these would be better as flying worms rather than serpents? Hmmm.

I've also added all the horse looks, even though the tameable Sinrunner is probably a mistake. I've added them to the unclassified models section:

Unfortunately WMV does a terrible job of rendering those flying shade beasts (the wings are just white fog and the animations are broken) so I haven’t added them yet :(

They look very cool though!

It’s the dark pet build! A bunch of dark coloured beasts have just been added, and are tameable, in Bastion. These are all colours that weren’t tameable before.

There’s a dark vulpin, dreamrunner, etherwyrm, and larion. And they all look gorgeous!

They’re all in the level 60 part of Bastion, but are tameable at 58. Hopefully lower-level versions of some of the. Will be tameable by launch, too.

I would have expected to see the dark kirin/windsteed as well, but no luck.
