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.
- PTR – Patch 5.1
- General Hunter Topics
- Featured Transmogrification of the Week (10/19/12)
Caelan found the tracks for and Kalliope flared out the tenth rare beast of Pandaria, the silkworm Bombyx, who looks to be the most complicated tame of all the tracking tames to date.
Quivering reported that all paw-tracked beasts were leaving them correctly, then verified that the claw-track beasts were still backwards after Kalliope reported Hexapos’s backward tracks.
Caelan has organized all 100+ of the new rares of Azeroth into this thread. Full discovery credits are in the first post (entries without a discovery credit are Caelan‘s). A handful of completely new skins is among the incoming pets, including a yellow Outland wind serpent, an armored dragonhawk, a monkey with a fez, several previously unavailable ghostly pets, and at least three new hunched cats. The list is expected to grow to 155 before the patch’s release.
Wain found that arcane wyrms are flagged as tameable in patch 5.1. Three colors are available (white, purple, and the recently-added blue) with red as a possible addition for the future, as it was added to the game, though remains non-interactive.
This week’s featured transmogrification was created by Xakaal.
