Question about certain "hotfixed" breeds

Postby Taras » May 26th, 2013, 2:45 am

According to 5.2 patch notes:

•Brilliant Kaliri, Jade Tentacle, Tirisfal Batling, Firefly, Jade Crane Chick, Gilnean Raven, and Shore Crawler are no longer available in multiple breeds

I'm sure many of you were already familiar with that. However as of right now warcraftpets still lists multiple breeds for these pets. But the most important thing is that I still able to get multiple breeds of Gilnean Raven as of 5.3. However when I tried getting a different breed of Jade Crane Chick I'm only getting the awful 3,13 breed (I have had 5 pandas learn it and trade it to me so far).

So my question is which of these actually got hotfixed and which ones didn't? Did they retroactively changed all the pets in the game? Or did people who got unique breeds originally got to keep them and all the new folks are stuck with a single breed?

As far as I know, their plan was to retroactively change all the listed pets into a single breed. I'm not sure if that actually ever happened, though (for all the intended pets). If someone could double check, it would be appreciated! :)

My Gilnean Raven is still breed 8, I believe, so it seems they still haven't retroactively changed at least that one.

Here's the discussion from when this change went onto the PTR, and then went live. http://www.warcraftpets.com/community/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2935&p=22365#p21581

It seems that those pets learned 5.2 and forward would only come in a single breed. The pets already created prior to 5.2 seemed to keep their breeds. So new worgens now should only get the B/B breed raven, but if someone had a P/P raven from day 1 of Mists, it should still be a P/P.

I still have an S/S breed Gilnean Raven. I leveled up an S/S Crow to have the same main combo incase the raven gets changed.
