Wain posted a list of potentially tameable beasts from Wowhead that haven’t been tracked down yet on the beta, seeking information on any of them. He also discovered a tameable spider during one of the farming quests in Valley of the Four Winds, the Spider Mite.
Dialga‘s theory that warlocks could change a hunter pet to green using Hand of Gul’dan and Drain Life simultaneously proved correct. However, the effect doesn’t stay after the pet dies a second time, so it is only a temporary change.
Wain posted that Mania updated the Petopia website with another wave of corrections and updates for patch 5.0.5. The front page of the site is now organized by domestic/exotic status rather than the pet’s starting specs, since all pets can be any spec now; pet starting specs are still listed on their individual pages. The ghostly spirit beast pictures that used to appear on black backgrounds have been replaced with cleaner versions that match the Petopia color scheme better by Spiritbinder. Kalliope‘s videos on the Mists of Pandaria rares have been added to their respective pages.
Jessibelle and Wykea reported getting lua errors from PetEmote when retalenting. Varethyn reported typos in spirit beast and beetle emotes and made some suggestions for warlock shivarras.
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: wind serpents.
This week’s featured transmogrification was created by Kalhoun.
Qinni created a comic based off of a Pandarian hunter armor set that was featured in another Petopia thread.
