Also remember that artifact knowledge is going up to 50 in 7.2, so, once you hit that with your main character, you can buy the catch up items for your alts. So catching up the traits will be less a grind than perceived. With just a few AP items you can catch up an artifact from 0 to the current max (not including maxxed paragon) in a very short time.
These grinds aren't that bad guys, there's much worse. But, a little relief, the pets (and other power ascended items) are now each 1000 resources instead of 10k, and I think a lot are forgetting about the catch-up mechanics coming in 7.2 that make these grinds hugely less daunting than they seem atm.
I just got a PS from AH. I guess that breed is just a much lower chance. But, they do exist.
There are clues in the pet journal for each one, but Quintessence figured it out here:
Blizcon is 2 pets, not choice of 1.
I believe this pet is a cross promotion for the new Traveler book series.
The corresponding mounts were originally listed as reputation rewards. But now, they are listed as a reward for quest "(type name) Reunion", ie "Sharptalon Reunion" etc. Patch notes now say, raise falcosaur and get the mount of it.
See it on Wowhead: http://ptr.wowhead.com/item=137578/snowfeather-hunter
If you missed the announcement, 7.1 drops 10/25 !
Hope this works like the Moonkin like lots are saying. Update: I do believe we'll get both, it seems kind of glossed over, but over the picture, it says "World of Warcraft® – Legionnaire Murky & Knight-Captain Murky". Still hopefully, it will be better clarified. Also on the buy virtual ticket page, on the in-game goodies overview, it says you'll get the "pets".
Got mine at 29.42. Its a small lake area, no hostile mobs around. Lucked out, 2 spawns were up after running around to different spots killing ambient critters, got a PP rare! I believe these guys can spawn anywhere around the water where bucktooth flappers spawn (speculation though).
Hey, WCP, this is not only a secondary pet, I forget where exactly in aszuna, but there were several of these as the primary. It was in a cove.
Is there somewhere all the updated models are listed? I knew about the rabbits , squirrels and rats/mice, but not raven/crow, had not seen that mentioned before. Also remember hearing about sheep.
Remember the children's Warcraft book series is releasing in November, Blizzcon pets are typically themed. I wouldn't be surprised if this was a promo for the Travelers' series launch.
I used to think epic pets was cool, but as another poster said, its too late now. Epic pets would make previous tamers trivial, and throw a huge monkey wrench into pet pvp. They'd have to retool stats so much it might just end up back where it is. Rare is good enough. We need more content otherwise. A way to make wild battles and low level tamers much more relevant.
I agree with you DeathEnder. I think its a very poor marketing ploy. As much as I'd like those pets 100 for 3 pets is absurd. I think this upsets the collecting community at large, promo items are fine when they are for use in the given product. I hope Blizzard heeds these comments, but they probably won't.
Any guild that has this unlocked and would be kind enough to take invites to obtain the pet should let us know, as the other guild has. Help your fellow collectors out
Anyone notice how this looks more spectral now? When did this change happen? He's now translucent with the eerie glowy stuff, not just a plain blue crab model anymore.
Gone... again, from the store, along with its counter part the Wind Rider Cub.
Edit: Both appear in stock again.
This and Gryphon plushes have disappeared from the store... again.
They just got mailed out!
Is that a violet proto whelp in the picture?
I think this lil' guy is awesome, at least in PvE battles vs anything aquatic, equally deadly as crow/raven.
