Kind of disappointed in the list. Sounds like a lot of recolors of existing pets. Curious what the Filthling and Living Fluid are. Gahz'rooki could be interesting, depending how they do it.

From Mumper on Twitter:
A new battle pet wanders the vast expanse of Northrend in patch 5.3. The elusive Unborn Val'kyr awaits!

The new Stunted Direhorn model is so adorable, I'm not sure what to do about it:

Not sure I can manage to win 250 PVP battles through the Find Battle system at level 25 to actually win the Direhorn. But man, that Val'kyr is awesome. Here's hoping the "elusive" doesn't mean we have a new Minfernal/Scourged Whelpling on our hands.

So....I think Blizzard may be finally giving us what we've asked for! Tideskipper presumably drops from Tidecaller --- his main add in his encounter is a MURLOC! Could it be a baby murloc?!?!!?!!?!??!??! Hoping and hoping and hoping it's not just a mini-version of the boss!!

I wish you were right, but Mumper has said repeatedly that Murlocs are reserved for special events.

Tideskipper drop item:
Shell of Tide-Calling

I would be shocked if it weren't a mini-Naga.

Hmm...then I would assume it's just a mini version of the boss. With the exception of 2 of the MC pets, all the rest were just mini boss models. Who knows. It's sad that I feel like I need to get twitter to keep up with all this pet stuff. Like I need more useless social media to keep up with my mmo!

That was originally my thought, and then I was thinking naga. Till I thought about the boss's name. A smaller version of Tidewalker, just might be a tideskipper. Its what seems to make the most sense.

This was stuff that was added. Pierre is probably still in the data files from his aborted attempt to appear in 5.2.

Okay, so we have Direhorn Runt on the list here. Over in the "Get ready to PVP thread", it lists earning a Stunted Direhorn as a reward for Brutal Pet Brawler. Are we thinking this is a case of 2 names, one pet? Or should I get my hopes up for 2 different hnnnng worthy pets to add to my collection?

My guesses which raid bosses will drop the new 5.3 Raiding With Leashes pets
Lil’ Bad Wolf – Opera Event
Menagerie Custodian – The Curator
Netherspace Abyssal - Prince Melchazar
Fiendish Imp – Terestian Illhoof
Tideskipper – Morogrim Tidewalker
Tainted Waveling – Hydross the Unstable
Coilfang Stalker – Lady Vashj
Pocket Reaver – Void Reaver
Lesser Voidcaller – Lady Solarius
Phoenix Hawk Hatchling – Al’ar

That's what I thought too at first, since there are tainted elementals in Vashj's fight. But the only fen striders in SSC are part of the Vashj fight, so the stalker must come from her. And then Hydross himself is a tainted elemental, so that would make sense for the waveling instead.


My guess is Prince Malchezaar


Most definitely. He summons abyssals, and the subzone of Kara that you fight him in is Netherspace.

I was thinking Fathom-Lord because the hunter had a Strider as his pet, I thought. It's a Sporebat now that I checked!
