Drakkena discovered that the tameable flags have been removed from both the amber parasites and Gorishi grubs on the PTR. Hunters who had previously tamed either worm have gotten to keep them and they’ve been resized down to normal silkworm size.
Zangor compiled a serious of pictures of possible pet colors hunters might see from patch 5.2. This includes all dire horns, devilsaurs, and dragon turtles.
Wain noticed some some previously unavailable combinations of skins and models were uploaded with the 5.2 PTR. Included are some elite ravager skins on the regular ravager body, regular and hunched versions of the three spirit beast cats, and a variety of tiger and spirit beast skins on frostsaber bodies.
Vephriel and Drakkena went on photo shoots at the Isle of Giants, capturing the beauty of the landscape, including the dire horn and devilsaur families.
WARNING: very image heavy.
Kalliope‘s thread covers the methods for taming the three spirit beast porcupines (Degu, Gumi, and Hutia) and obtaining the book needed to tame Dire Horns. Gretadella‘s original source thread for the Dire Horn book is linked from there.
Shoopdawhoop wrote a guide for the current method of taming buff pets. As there is a potential for abuse with these tames, please use common sense and do not tame anything that changes gameplay.
Kalliope posted her second and third videos featuring the Molten Front rares: Ankha and Magria and Anthriss. She also announced that the next few videos in the Molten Front part of the series would be delayed due to the influx of information from patch 5.2.
This week’s featured transmogrification was created by Ashaelyn.
