This past week I've been exploring around the Warlords of Draenor beta with my hunter, and I've totally and utterly fallen in love with the game again. Between the mind explodingly gorgeous landscapes, incredibly cool new hunter pets, and silly amount of rares - I'm seriously like a little kid in a candy shop. MUST EXPERIENCE EVERYTHING! (Thankfully I don't have to worry about breaking anything.)
I had a hard time deciding whether or not to play my shammy or hunter for exploring beta - then I remembered hunter pets. Durka dur, that was an easy decision. Perhaps even more than finding the new rares, I was most excited about taming new hunter pets. <3
I've stumbled upon quite a few awesome new tamable hunter pets in the past couple of days. The pets in the screen shots below can all be found in Shadowmoon Valley.
**WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD** (Just in case the title of the post wasn't warning enough)
|New Sporebat Model - Yellow eyes/blue accents|
|New Sporebat Model - Blue eyes/orange accents|
|Void Wolf, first awesome new tamable WoD pet - before you even arrive in SMV|
|Grey Draenor Wolf Skin|
These are all of the rares that I've come across so far. They remind me very much of the Timeless Isle Rares. Each has their own unique loot (known loot is listed under each rare's screen shot). All of them also seem to drop Garrison Resources (a currency used in the construction of your garrison buildings).
|World Boss. No loot table yet. Took 2 raid groups + FOREVER to kill this guy.|
|Precious Bloodthorn Loop|
|Sporebat Larval Pod|
|Staff of the Mad Bramble King|
|Ku'targ's Merciless Grips|
|Ba'ruun's Bountiful Bloom|
|Varandi Family Crest|
|Venomshade Skin Boots|
|Dragonrider's Tinkered Leggings|
|Darktide Summoner Staff|
|Void Prophecy Cudgel|
More than ever I just wanted to take screenshots of something beautiful this time around. Blizzard did an amazing job with this zone. Almost everywhere I turned I wanted to take a screenshot. Anyone who appreciates beauty in even the smallest sense should get something out of these.
This one has been my favorite so far. I found a cave where your character can swim in the area around the opening - even though there is no water around. :)
Much Love, E
