I'm a bit disappointed that there are no stone-lynx models so that I could make it my Earthen's main pet. I love the Ram but I prefer it as the mount but having a lynx made of stone and gems as the Earthen's pet would be awesome.

A bunch more plunderstorm croc mount colors were posted and they are in fact crocolisks, I just hope a tameable model will come out soon, I’m looking forward to testing hunter pets and other hunter stuff in beta as it comes tomorrow, hopefully more tames were added since alpha

Some new croc models would be fantastic. The cata crocs, while unique, are definitely very dated in terms of poly count and texture detail. Not as bad as some old models (coughmonkeyscough), but still. Also, beta can be downloaded now if you've been invited, be it through paypig methods (epic edition) or through sheer luck. As of posting, servers are NOT up, but that's expected since they're probably still setting up.

The old fox also looks so outdated i once thought it was a vanilla model, i wish monkeys and gorillas merged into one primate family

Aye that's what im waiting for. I've had my croc slob for years now since they butchered pet families and are to prideful to revert it.
It's about time he got a model upgrade.

I just played beta, it was much easier to test at night when the population is lower, So far the things I found tameable and untameable, like many ramolith variants, including bald ones. Threadings which are my favorite have three different mouth sizes, and more. I also found many creatures that are so far untameable but have different effects, those include the storm wolves, which will probably end up being a BM pet, I found a few fathom rays with a strange streak effect which is untameable, a few goats with a void effect which can’t be tamed, I also found a void stalker wrongly classified as a lizard and it’s massive

I don't know the difficulties in implementing this, but I really wish we had a way to cosmetically toggle pets that can fly or walk on the ground, there's quite a few now and sometimes it changes the entire feel of a pet whether it's in the air or grounded.

A new pet ability should be added

Hover (only given to families with wings) - commands your pet to hover, it should be a toggle, just like skyriding, either let your pet walk and fly. Corpseflies make no sense walking, I’m going to call it a Corpsewalk now on

More cosmetic glyphs would be great for hunters like Glyph of Greater Proportion, which is your idea, and imagine a glyph related to divine charger where your aspect of the cheetah would mount you on your current pet, imagine the hype if it were real

I duno if that would really be doable.
I mean it COULD with alot of work. But they won't even change paladins of other races outside of human version of the light so I doubt they'd make entirely new riding animations for critters that dont have the riding model at all.

Glyph of greater proportion, totally doable.
as long as it gets disabled in dungeon/raid.


SIDE NOTE!
Jesus, next month the expansion comes out. that feels... weird.

War within is still in the beginning of beta so a lot of things are still subject to change and or get added. Hunter is getting some class changes next week so I have hopes for a survival hunter rework. A lot of tameable creatures still need to be fixed and labeled as such. I will definitely post some new tames that are intended when I find something, like the skyrazors or such

Found another Dustmoth color in Ringing Deeps, they are called Terrace Moths, they look like the underlight queen, but without the sparkles

I decided to test the Arachnophobia, and the nerubians in azj-kahet sport new colors for arachnophobia mode too. The swarmers are transformed into Skitterflies, and the spiders into crabs. Many of those could be potential colors for normal beasts. the black nerubian skitterfly looks like the normal black but with red tinted wings. I also checked out older creatures. Most older spiders before war within use old crab colors, a few exceptions. Corpse tickler crabs also look pretty neat

This is a very cool feature for those afraid of Spiders. Sorry Wain, there are so many new colors of skitterflies and crabs under arachnophobia mode

Huh. I didn't realize that the arachnophobia setting also affected blood beasts. I'm guessing it's because of the tick ones and not the crawgs.

I have to still check blood ticks, the veinseeker mount had no effect so I will definitely do that while I have the chance

This week's beta build added a new BM talent:
https://www.wowhead.com/beta/spell=4597 ... sters-call

Can someone with beta access check

1. What skin does the Hati summoned by this use by default?
2. Is this affected by changing your artifact weapon appearance in the Class Hall?
3. Is this affected by transmogging your current weapon into artifact weapon appearances which were linked to different Hati skins?
4. Is this affected by Essence Swapper?
