Wow, they all look fun (except Deth'tilac, which was coincidentally the spider I liked best...). I really was surprised they didn't add a charhound though. Those things are sick! It's just not fair making them elementals... then putting in a Hunter as a raid boss who has them tamed, as beasts.Blizzard be trollin' us all, mon. I agree, they're really cool. :(
The spiders are neat looking, despite the fact I'm deathly scared of them, but overall it's pretty meh.
I think it's more about the process than the actual item, similar to how people will shell out gold for a vanity item and forget about it afterwards. It's just the idea of 'collecting' that makes it fun.Exactly. I think people look at it, go "Oh, I'm not interested in how that pet looks," and fail to realise that it is about the challenge, the process and the accomplishment. Why all the complaints about stuff? It's really neat that they have done this! If I played a hunter as my main I would be highly interested in the challenges presented here. It truly is reminiscent of the demon quests from vanilla, which I am proud to say I finished. And I still have Rokh'delar in my hunter's bank. ;)Despite the fact that I highly doubt I will ever step up to the challenge, I have already formulated a couple of ideas for taming Deth'tilac. I'm sure decent strategies will be worked out in short order. >.<Besides the fact that these are neat hunter challenges - first time they have ever created elites that are solely for hunter pet taming, too! - I quite like the spider models. Both the green lava spider and Deth'tilac look pretty awesome from where I'm standing. And that lighter cat spirit beast (Anhka) looks pretty neat too. :)
I don't even play a hunter but even I am a little disappointed.
Those spiders look awful.The cats are just old reskins.The bird's colour is cool but that model is just lame.Seriously do some unique models for the rare pets.This comment is horrible.The text is just reskinned.The text is good but the content is lame.Seriously, do some unique posts.
Is there a sense of just how rare these "rare spawns" are? If it's a spawn timer like the Rok'delar demons were (long enough that it wasn't guaranteed to be up when you went, short enough that one could get the quest done in a reasonable length of time), cool. If it's the 8+ hours you see with the rare spawns hunters are taming these days, that's less cool and vastly more annoying.I'd love to have a spirit beast tame that indicated some modicum of skill, rather than the patience to sit at designated location for long enough.
it was damn worth it...trading the mega Careful Aim nerf for 8 pets....IT WAS DAMN WORTH IT MY ***!
i don't really want any of the pets except maybe the purple spider, but it seems it would be fun as hell trying to get them.
What...no blue! I want blue spider!Would be nice...a frost spider...special ability -> slow/damage increase on fire elements including Mr. fire Rag! 8POh...hopefully the new mechanism remove the need to camp these beast for 2 weeks to get them and then have a pssingby (spelled passing by) idiot killed it!
The spiders I like. But the spirit beasts makes me disappoint. And I just switched to BM because its the most fun hunter spec to play now.
If the spiders could root enemies with flaming web, consider it tamed!
One major pain I foresee isn't just many hunters looking to tame awesome looking pets. But griefers from both your faction and the opposing faction killing them before you get to tame them. i.e. Samba - "Hey, huntard, did you want to tame this rare pet? Give me 5k and I won't kill it."
im definitely getting the spiders and the bird they look great but the cats meh i think gondria is enough for me
I'll want the owl because i like spirit beasts and love birds, owl wouldn't be my first choice but i'll go with it...the rest is blah.
The challenge is that Ban'thalos flies around extremely high up (and rumor has it he'll be relocated even higher on live), so be prepared to take fall damageEngineering Parachute FTW.
*Sigh* Again, Blizzard lets me down with un-original "new" things. It's all the same thing and for me, WoW is losing it's uniqueness. This is one of the reasons I stopped playing.

This is one of the reasons I stopped playing.It all looks pretty new to me. Since when have you tamed a beast with 38,745,000 health? That's plain awesome :D It has a move named "Molten Will" I'd totallly tame that, since my name is Will."FEAR ME I'M MOLTEN MUAHAHAH"And if you stopped playing, why are you still reading and commenting on wowhead lol
Don't be so damn stupid. Did you not realize~ They all have unique spells and talents.End.
5 spiders? Really? Bleh. at least we got some kittehs. But some variation in pets themselves would have been nice.I'm not sure about you, but I'm glad they put in some cool-looking spiders. To be fair most of the current ones look rather...bland.Also, is Blizzard going to make it so people can't grief Hunters taming beasts? It's still quite aggravating to lose <insert extremely hard to get rare here> because some asshat pulls aggro (breaking the tame cast) and killing the pet-to-be.
It says Deth Strike can't be dodged blocked or parried, but doesn't say it cant miss. So couldnt you just cast deterrence as hes casting and make him lose health fast that way? also, could he cast it on a snake from snake trap? if so that would be way to easy
