Blizzard has added 8 new rare tamable beasts, each of which provides a unique taming challenge for hunters.
Players will need to progress through the Hyjal Regrowth and Molten Front daily questing areas in order to unlock all of the taming challenges.
New Pet Stance: Assist
The Aggressive pet stance has been removed and replaced with the Assist stance. This stance will cause the player's pet to attack the player's target. The pet will not change targets unless the master attacks a new target for a few seconds.
In addition, the Defensive pet stance will now only cause the player's pet to attack enemies which attack the pet or the master. Before, a pet in the Defensive stance would also attack anything the master attacked - but this is now covered by the Assist stance.
The Tenacity pet talent Intervene has been redesigned.
The pet runs at high speed toward a group member as before, but now the pet reduces the damage done by the next melee or ranged attack made against them equal to 50% of the pet's total health.
