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
- Patch 5.0.4
- General Hunter Topics
Kalliope updated the rare beast info thread with videos for Bristlespine and Stompy. She also noted the discovery that reducing liquid detail to fair makes tracks hidden underwater easier to see.
LupisDarkmoon noticed that hyenas have a new running animation. This prompted Wassa to discover that all hyena animations have been changed; now their heads remain low, rather than raising up.
Equeon‘s thread compiles a number of bug reports from hunters around the forum, mostly hunter-specific ones, but a good number of general bugs as well. Highlights include “missing” ranged weapons, stacking druid stags, and misplaced warlock horns.
Boven kicked off a discussion about ranged weapon sizes in proportion to different races and genders. Some are tiny, others are massive.
Mania made a number of corrections to the Petopia site as well as updating it for 5.0.4.
Aquillian reported that his tenacity pets weren’t holding aggro after the patch, later discovering that the problem is linked to the Endless Wrath glyph; if the hunter uses BW, the mobs ignore the pet as though it died.
Jessibelle and Varethyn tossed in some quilen ideas and Equeon suggested a minor spirit beast change. A debate over the verbs describing water strider and sporewalker sounds spawned a number of possible emotes. On the technical side, Efindel announced that he updated PetEmote for 5.0.4 and included the most recent custom emotes from Teigan‘s initial post in the thread.
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: raptors.
This week’s featured transmogrification was created by Golden to match the MoP shipwrecked storyline.
