- General Hunter Topics
- Fan Art and Creative Writing
Nachtwulf drew attention to the similar-but-different orange tigers coming in MoP, which prompted a discussion of the subtle differences between the skins. In particular, Vephriel‘s comparison shot of the two clearly shows the differences in their eyes.
Kalliope updated the rare beast info thread with a video for Portent.
Wain put out a request for testing some identical Pandarian beasts with different ID numbers: the Azure Prickly Crawler, Battle Goat, and Jeweled Macaw.
Myzou called attention to a sneaky stealth buff to sporebats as hinted at by Ghostcrawler in a recent tweet.
Question: 5% buff spell haste seems limited. 3 specs vs others @ 6+ (2 classes all specs) thoughts on widening coverage. 10 mans need it
Ghostcrawler: If your 10 has no hybrid casters, then there probably aren’t many casters benefitting from the buff anyway. Also: Sporebats.
Ickabob tweeted Ghostcrawler and asked why hydras weren’t tameable.
“Mostly it’s because we hate the model. If we update it, then taming would be on the table. Standard no promises.”
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: gorillas.
This week’s featured transmogrification was created by Banard.
Bulletdance features a Pandarian dragon and tiger in a wallpaper-sized piece and two Pandarian dragons in a smaller cut-out work.
