As 8.0 drops next Tuesday, thought it would be nice to have a thread for sharing our planned tames!

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.

My taming plans!

8.0

Log on to my main hunter. Admire Vika, my shiny new upgraded darkhound who I already have.

Image

Admire Ghund, who I still need to go pick up before Tirisfal Glades meets with an unfortunate end

Image

Admire my crow, who I think will be changing to

Image

Decide if Maggie my red hyena is good as the new red, and if not, replace her with

ImageImage

Cry quietly over Weaver, my red and black barbed spider who just won't be herself anymore. Possibly release her and replace her with

Image

Go tame some new ones:
ImageImageImageImageImage

And a

Image

because of the new animations

Log onto my gnome hunter who keeps the mechs and admire my A-ME and chicken

ImageImage

Log on my night elf and admire Sathrah's new look. And cry over her wild counterpart's untimely demise and try not to think about all the rest of the wildlife on Teldrassil.

Image

Tame my night elf a

Image

BFA proper:

Briney! I'm coming for you buddy! Hang on!

Image

And also I'll have room to try out alot of new ones

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

I doubt I'll keep all the new ones, but I want to enjoy them for a bit at least

And finally, race change druid to Kul'tiran once they are available. Change her name to Abie, after Abbie the Perfectly Normal (bramble) Bear. Learn to play Guardian spec.

My Dwarf (who will become a Dark Iron as soon as possible) will be deciding whether she likes Image and Image more than her current runed dark hound and basilisk.
She'll also be taming Image to replace her current spider.

The Goblin will be checking whether Image is a fitting replacement for her beloved parrot.
And will make a couple of tames to check if they work out: ImageImageImage

Belfie will go and replace her current raven with this Image beauty. She'll also decide whether this Image is a fitting new look for her old spider.
She'll be taming Image and Image.
And keeping fingers crossed for these two perfect creatures: Image and Image!

And finally, my Gnome, although she's still a lowbie, is very excited to see the changes to her mechanical chicken. Image

Image

Many thanks to Ashaine and Kurenio for the beautiful signature and avatar!

Pre-patch tames for Krys:

Image
These guys look really cool with their newer looks and I figured now would be a good time to see how they fit
ImageImage
Obligatory unicorn tame~ I'm really hoping Somber Dawn becomes tameable because that red and black is right up Krys' street but, if not, it'll be the slightly less-red unicorn

Actual BfA tames:
Image
These guys are really cool~ I don't know if a lizard will stick, but we'll have to see
ImageImage
I really dig the albino look some of the newer creatures have. If it doesn't fit, though, then I'll see about the black variant instead
Image
The old-world black Gryphon didn't fit, but I'll try again with this guy. As long as he doesn't constantly flap everywhere
Image
And this will be Ishkar. Vyonne already has a pet named 'Ishka' but as long as I ignore that fact then it's fine :')


Pre-patch tames on Narriah, my hunter on Argent Dawn, when she gets to 110:

ImageImage
Most likely she'll get the golden unicorn, but I will keep my fingers crossed that the ivory one does become available at some point

Actual BfA tames:

Image
I've been waiting for this colour to be tameable since Draenor and now I can finally tame one~ This will be one of Narriah's two main wolves
Image
This pet isn't a definite, but I'll give them a go to see how they fit
Image
This model is just so pretty I can't not tame them~ RP-wise, would she use a falcon? Probably not, but it's fine
ImageImage
Not sure which colour she'll have. I've honestly just got my fingers crossed that either they're always grounded or there's some sort of toggle implemented

For pre-patch, I am taming these guys. Some of them are just model updates, so I just went out and tamed them already.

ImageImage

If these become available ever, I'd get these ones in a heartbeat over the other unicorn.
ImageImage

As for BfA itself:

ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Basically I want all the gryphons. All of them. A lot of the models look awesome in BfA, they're just not something I'd use. But I need all those gryphons unless they're grounded. It bothers me having flying models that are 'grounded' (it's why I can't use flying mounts like dragons or birds as ground mounts pre-flying unlock). But I hate seeing the newer gryphons and hippogryphs grounded, which is why I didn't use the grand hippogryphs at all. Just give us a toggle already Blizzard so every one is happy! XD

I'm getting myself a nice Toad, one blue and one black Unicorn, and a few Hyenas. I already have my 2 rare Demon Dogs ready to go. Once BfA goes live I'm going straight for an orange bee. I'll probably pick up a few of the new dinos once I get over to the Horde lands. Hmm, and perhaps a Kodo because they really do look nice with the updated skins. I love to match pets with my transmog, so I'd love to get many more of the new pets, but I have limited space and it would require a severe overhaul of the Hunter stable. #hurrytheheckupandoverhaulthehunterstable

Well I'm my alt Hunter is going to have a "home" thyme of pets when I get them maxed :lol:

Gila monster (pronounced heel-ah monster) only venomous lizard native to the United States
ImageImage



Diamondback (I don't like finding them :| )
ImageImage



Arizona Blonde Tarantula (they make great pets as they don't startle much, are super chill and like to hangout in the open) I can normally find a big (hand sized) female by the horse barn.
ImageImage


Sonoran Desert Toad (largest toad in North America) we find them under stuff, anything they can squeeze into.
ImageImage :mrgreen:

I think these are the pets I'm potentially interested in (multiple colours of the same model means I haven't picked which one I want yet), depends on which become available. :)

At the moment I'm planning to go for the Veilrunner unicorn, a Manarunner, the white raven/crow, one of the hyenas, possibly the purple or the whiteish one, and a bee. Not sure any of the others are really tickling my fancy just yet.

Hey,

is there already a list of all new tameable models in the pre patch? I looked everywhere but didn't find anything :oops:

There is a list that can be found here. Just mouse over the images and a list will pop up that shows which mobs can and cannot be tamed :)

That's an amazing topic and it's been interesting to see what pets others are interested in. With pre-patch dropping tomorrow on EU servers, I've decided to collect some pets that will get their models updated and plan for the future tames:

I've tamed Bayne, Fidonis and Plague to see how their updated models look in-game. I will probably keep only one of them, depending on the color scheme I like most:
Image Image Image

Technically, Plague is supposed to be transparent, but it seems it doesn't keep it. At least it didn't in the beta.

I'd really like to tame Somber Dawn, his colour scheme is so striking, but as of now, he is sadly unavailable. I will keep an eye on him and for the time being grab the Tormented Shadowrunner from Val'sharah:

Image Image

I wish the Lucid Nightmare-like unicorn could be tamed for Void Elves.

That is pretty much it for the pets that will be available with pre-patch. Now onto the expansion itself:

Image Image Image Image Image

Cannot say how much of these pets I will keep, considering the changes to the pet families and that some of them might never leave the stables. The white birb stays for sure, though.
And surprising even myself this one pet blew me away, even though I usually don't tame gryphons. Brought in all the childhood / teenage years memories of playing Heroes of Might and Magic.
Gonna name it Erathia :D

Image

Edit: I am also gonna keep an eye on Avatar of Xolotal, the Hati lookalike.
