Hunter Pets Update WOD

Post by Termínator™ on Sat May 31, 2014 4:55 am

A sneak-peek at the pets of a savage world.
Note: the following information has been been gleaned from an early Alpha Test of Warlords of Draenor. Much may change before the release date, and none of these looks are guaranteed to become available for taming. However, enjoy!


UPDATE 29 MAY: Hook Wasps have been merged into the Wasp family. New family announced: Rylaks.

New Pet Families

Three new families have been announced:


  • Hydras
  • Riverbeasts
  • Rylaks (Exotic)


New Pet Models

Possible new models for existing families:


  • Bats
  • Boars
  • Ravagers
  • Sporebats
  • Toucans
  • Wolves
  • Hook Wasps
  • Spirit Beasts (?)
  • Chimaeras (Unlikely)
  • Dread Ravens (Unlikely)


Existing Beasts

Currently untameable looks that should become available in WoD:


  • Existing Beasts


New Family: Hydras
Status: CONFIRMED
For all existing hydra looks, see our Hydra Family Page. In addition, a new "Thunder Hydra" model has appeared in the database. It comes in four colours:

New Family: Riverbeasts
Status: CONFIRMED
Like a hippopotamus re-imagined for Draenor, these beasts come in five colours:

New Family: Rylaks
Status: CONFIRMED
Rylaks are a form of chimaera that has been spun off to form its own family. Their model is a wild version of the Iron Skyreaver mount. There are three known colours:

The tan skin (used for the Iron Skyreaver mount) has also been spotted on the wild model, but it does leave some weird-looking patches where the armour should go. These could well be left-over placeholders:

New Model: Draenor Wolves
Status: CONFIRMED
The Draenor Wolf model takes inspiration from recent reward mounts and will make a beautiful addition to the wolf family. There are five known colours:

New Models: Draenor Wolf Spirit Beasts (?)
Status: UNCERTAIN
There are two other versions of the Draenor wolf in the database, a "fire" one and a "shadow" one. Both seem identical in shape to the regular model and each has a single skin associated with it. We don't know for certain, but it seems likely that these models are meant to have fire or shadow effects. If so, they haven't been applied yet, but it does suggest that they may be new spirit beasts. This is purely speculation, however.

New Model: Draenor Boars
Status: CONFIRMED
These burly pigs appear to be the uncorrupted forerunners of the felboars we saw in the Burning Crusade. There are five known colours:

New Model: Draenor Sporebats
Status: CONFIRMED
A new sporebat model has appeared in the database. It's not radically different to the original, but is definitely higher quality and a very welcome addition to a tiny family. There are three known colours:

New Model: Draenor Ravagers
Status: CONFIRMED
The new ravager model is similar in appearance to a silithid, very different to the original Outland model. There are at least seven colours:

New Model: Bats
Status: CONFIRMED
This fancy new bat model appeared in the database during Mists of Pandaria but never became available. They have been confirmed as a new tameable model in Draenor. There are five known colours:

New Model: Toucans
Status: CONFIRMED
These brightly-coloured birds have been confirmed as upcoming hunter pets, but we don't yet know which family they'll be placed in. We've so far seen four different colours:

New Model: Hook Wasps
Status: CONFIRMED
Hook Wasps were originally announced as a new family but have since been merged into Wasps. There are at least six colours:

New Model: Chimaeras
Status: UNLIKELY
Aside from the Rylaks, which have been given their own family, there is one other model of chimaera in the database. It appears to be used for a new mount, but without the saddle it's also a worthy beast in its own right. Unfortunately the response we've received so far is that it isn't being used. At least not yet. We're only aware of one colour:

New Model: Dread Raven
Status: UNLIKELY
We're already familiar with the new Dread Raven as a mount, but there's also a wild version which will appear in Draenor. However we've been told that it isn't being considered as a hunter pet because they are rare and of special significance to the Arakkoa. We've chosen to include it here for informational purposes.

Existing Beasts but Newly Tameable Looks
With character levels rising to 100 some Pandaria beasts should finally become tameable. Among them are two crabs from the Timeless Isle which sport unique colour schemes:
Status: PROBABLE, BUT UNTESTED
Ancient Spineclaw Monstrous Spineclaw
