5 spiders? Really? Bleh. at least we got some kittehs. But some variation in pets themselves would have been nice.
Yeah, not even the prospect of "Look how awesome I am for taming these" is going to make me release any of my current stable tennants just for any of these guys, unfortunately.
I'm going to have to agree with Milalyr here...these are ok, but nothing to write home about. Different colors on same skins...But at least there was something :-)
Bah. Who wants a spider? Now those kitties, that's some awesome right there.
I actually rather like the new spider skins :| The spirit beasts are kinda meh though.
I was kind of hoping for several more different creature types, but at least the three base models we got are pretty cool.
Deth'tilac will make you wish you still had that Master Ball in your inventory. Gotta catch em all!P.S. I think people would have liked a special charhound more than 5 different spiders. Go go Spider Rangers anyone?
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.
Could anyone do me the huge favor of naming this song used in the video? D:
i think i'll be sticking with my sambas. not overly impressed, just reskins and spiders.
38 million health? mhm..
With the exeption of Deth'tilac all the otherpets require just a friendly holy paladin to help .... but this Deth'tilac .... I'm 10000% sertain that he's not gonna be this strong in live... I mean ... As I read it he requires a raid to tame .... and no raid is gonna gather just so a hunter can have ANOTHER SPIDER
more spirit beasts and spiders? need a new more effective type. not same old stuff with new skins.

It's just the idea of 'collecting' that makes it fun.I agree--I actually also really like the spider models. I don't play a hunter, but if I did, I'd pick up the purple or blue one just to have it. Even if they're "reskins," at least they have a nice selection of colors to pick so every hunter can be happy.
Well the bird is at least different, but I'm kinda sick of the cat/sabretooth glowy transparent skin. At least create an all new skin like with Loque Na'hak or do something other than more cats. How about a spirit core hound or dinosaur?Admittedly the spiders DO look pretty cool if you view them in the 3D model viewer. The pictures in this article don't do them any justice. Also I believe the crazy high health pools are to prevent jerks and haters from swooping down and killing your new pet in mid tame.

It's just the idea of 'collecting' that makes it fun.Oh, I know it's all about the process. My bio even states how much I love challenging tames. But my stable is full, and at that, that already includes 2 spirit beasts... I really don't want to make the space even just to say that I've tamed them all.At best, I'd make 1 free space, tame each in succession, acquire proof of each, release the pet after. Shame that both the cats are basically the same tame trick; Not going to bother doing it twice, really.With the exeption of Deth'tilac all the otherpets require just a friendly holy paladin to help .... but this Deth'tilac .... I'm 10000% sertain that he's not gonna be this strong in live... I mean ... As I read it he requires a raid to tame .... and no raid is gonna gather just so a hunter can have ANOTHER SPIDERI do like the prospect of forming a raid for a tame. I formed a small group back when I tamed Gezzerak that was comprised of the stuns and haste effects necessary to pull the tame off at the time. Of course, that said, not everyone has the guildmates or the friend circle who are willing to do that. The Petopia forum post about these pets seems to think you can kite Deth'tilac. Just expect it to take a very long time.
Bleh...I was hoping for something more original but...I guess not >.<
The pets themselves are a bit meh, but what I think really shines in this post is the fact that blizzard is now making it a CHALLENGE to tame. A recognized one too. I'm not saying that the old beasts weren't one, but that blizzard recognizes that pets are hunter-only, and adds in special spells that only affect tames? These are not rare spawns. They're tame bosses. They're tests of a hunter's skill. I fully approve of them going all out to make it a HUGE challenge to tame. Hopefully, there will be a guild achievement for some of these, especially Deth'tilac. He's not only going to be camped, but you're going to need a LOT of help for him. Best of luck hunters!
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.Why are you still here? You complain about everything Blizz does in every single news topic. Why not just quit the game and do something you enjoy instead? You're only hurting yourself.
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.
