Every Friday, Kalliope features the highlights of the Petopia forum discussions that week, ranging from new pet discoveries to theorycrafting to stunning transmog sets, also providing links to the full threads.
- Mists of Pandaria
- General Hunter Topics
- PetEmote Addon – New shiny things (8/18/12)
- Skin Swaps! (Owls and parrots that never were… etc.) (8/22/12)
- Featured Transmogrification of the Week (8/24/12)
Wain discovered that the macro needed to determine the NPC id of NPCs will be changing in Mists of Pandaria. The new one that works is:
/run print(“Target NPC ID:”, tonumber((UnitGUID(“target”)):sub(-13, -9), 16))
Wain asked if anyone had seen the Corrupted Cranes along the cliffs/foreshore east of the Temple of the Jade Serpent. It turns out that they are linked to the daily The Darkness Among Us and only spawn when that quest is available. Wain noted wryly that of course they were up on the day he posted about them after days of searching.
Wain discovered that when the daily “Stonebound Killers” is available, Stonebound Quilen are available (and tameable) in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.
Wain confirmed in Thedoomcookie‘s master list thread that the three mobs that spawn in the Valley of the Four Winds during The Great Water Hunt quest - Waterbite Creeper (spider), Toothrow Skulker (crocolisk), and Glade Pincher (crab) – can all be tamed.
Teigan‘s thread for updating and expanding the PetEmote addon’s pet library grew again with Toph’s new basilisk and dog suggestions and goat, porcupine, and crane ideas from Varethyn.
SQUEE WARNING: Wain uses WoW Model Viewer to swap skins onto different models, creating some gorgeous (and some terrifying) hypothetical beast skins. Continuing from last week’s post with the druid kittens, Wain posted the druid bears on one of the bear cub models.
Every week, Wassa spotlights a random pet family, giving Petopians an opportunity to share their stories about their beloved pets with the community. The latest family selected: nether rays.
This week’s featured transmogrification was designed by Dalianza.
