The Hati questline isn't complete yet. All we know is it ends with a tameable version of Hati.

Yeah, there is supposed to be another questline in Silithus regarding Hati, but it isn't in yet. This first build is very, very incomplete in regards to many things.

I've wondered this myself. The different colors of Hati was such an iconic part of the Titanstrike, but I can't see them making all color variants tameable. I hope so though.

Isn't there only like 4 or 5? I don't remember anymore =( I know it's single digits, so it wouldn't be herculean task to add all of them...

BUT! What if the essence swapper can be used to change his colours...???

Hope the tameable Hati isn't a color-changer upon summoning :/

I would pretty much love Hati to have the brown color, not the blue one they are showing in the image of Hati, tbh, the blue colors didnt show Hati much justice, i like the brown with the blue glows.

Hati did have 6 different colors, but not all of his variants actually made it in game.

Shade posted this one this forum way back on Petopia, I know that this wasn't the "final version" of Hati; more lightning was added but I digress: http://forums.wow-petopia.com/viewtopic ... 5&p=552595

Hati changed colors based on whatever form of Titanstrike you used. In the order of the images presented top - bottom

Light Grey - Elekk's Thunder (Balance of Power)
Brown - Boarshot Cannon (PVP)
Light Blue - Default Titanstrike
Dark Gray - Unused
Dark Blue - Titan's Reach (Hidden Appearance) and Serpentstrike (Mage Tower)
Black - Eaglewatch (Order Hall/Campaign completion)

I might have got the Light Grey and Dark Grey mixed up; but I know that one of the grey models were not used. Serpentstrike-Hati re-used an existing color (Dark Blue Hati). Very likely the missing color is the one that was meant for Serpentstrike; since none of the other Hati colors 'shares' a color with another model.

Yeah I knew how it worked, just couldn't remember how many colours there were. Never got the challenge mode though, so that one I didn't know was reused, that's a shame. Seeing all the skins lined up like that, it really is a lovely looking wolf. I was always fond of the brown one, myself, and was a little disappointed to lose that skin.

I've kept my essence swapper on a "just in case" hunch, and while I'm not sure how it'd work (maybe a dialogue pane when used, select a colour described with lore-friendly flavour text, start channel?), still sounds like an OK idea if they don't want to add 6 different mobs (or 5, but all 6 would be great). Or, Hati is there, chat bubble mouse icon, call for a specific pup, if they don't want to use essence swapper? I'm impatient, I want more info, the guessing is gonna drive me crazy, lol.

Yeah sorry, didn't mean to sound/insinuate you didn't know XD I mainly wrote the extra parts in case others were curious or didn't know (I know a few friends who didn't know Hati's color associations). My bad on that :)

And yeah, I did the same as you. I kept my essence swapper as well. Maybe it will be re-used? IDK. It'd be nice to get the variations of Hati back. I mean, if we do get tameable Hati back, I definitely am happy with any color. But if I had my preference, I'd like to see a way to get all the colors back, since many hunters are probably more attached to one color over another.

I would love for the essence swapper to work the way it did before so we can have any existing tameable model as a spirit beast. But I would certainly still be pleased with being able to use it to swap his colors.

If all we get from this is the Hati tame, I'll be kinda disappointed. It will be good to resolve that story, but just getting another tame that I'll likely never use doesn't feel like a great end to it.

How many of us really kept Hati as his original look? The great thing about him was being able to mix and match and keep two pets of your choosing by your side. Now they've rolled back so much of that.. I don't think this will really add much.

I'd rather have Hati as some external spirit or something that comes to our side occasionally, or some other effect.

If we actually get an option... that would make things more interesting...

Ahh that’s so exciting! I like the broad color range. It’ll be so nice to have another corporeal spirit beast but which also has a nicely detailed model. I’m excited for the brown one too, as I’m quite sick of all my pets being in color ranges that are so boring to match mogs with.

Cool, but I hope the Dark Blue one also makes it in. That one is the coolest to me. Reminds me of Skoll.

Wasn't the dark blue the one they removed from beta and son of whatshisname I think it was and if so it should also be included but makes me wonder now looking back I remember on beta seeing the son of whoever and it was Hati then was gone changed to a blue gara which is now. That was a clue they were bringing him back.

I never used Hati as himself (always essence swapped to another pet) so I won't be in a rush for this but I'm happy for those that wanted him back to get a chance to tame him.
