Potential New Models and Looks in Dragonflight

Here are all the new models - and new looks for older models - that we've found so far in Dragonflight Alpha and we think have the potential to be Hunter pets.

Not all of these models are currently tameable, and it's likely that some will remain unavailable at release. As such, this guide should currently be considered speculative.

As Dragonflight is still in early testing, the creatures that populate the Dragon Isles will probably change a great deal before release: some will be added and removed, others will have their looks or taming status altered. We'll update this guide as we find out more, but we won't include NPC taming info until things become more stable.

Each look for this model is the result of a combination of textures, and the ones below are derived from texture combinations that weren't originally designed to go together, but still work well to create a coherent new look. As there can be many such combinations, we list them separately to the standard unused looks.

Family: Carapids

Exotic family: Beast Masters only, minimum level 39.Exotic Family
Can only be used by hunters in the Beast Mastery spec. Minimum level 39 in Shadowlands.

Clearly, these creatures have no shells. I'm only featuring them in Carapids because that's where snails are currently housed. Hopefully they'll get their own 'Gastropod' family in the future.

Model: Mantacorns

We don't yet know if these new manta rays will be tameable, but we're including them here for interest. The model bears a strong resemblance to the fathom rays of Nazjatar, so there's always the possibility they'll be able to fly and become pets!

Family: Birds of Prey

Model: Death Hawks

Requires Undead Taming.Undead Taming

New, untameable models that aren't yet in families

Unclassified Model: Vorquins

Vorquins are based on the Qilin / Kirin of Chinese and Japanese mythology and so are related to the sadly unused windsteed model. Most are currently classed as dragonkin and so may not become tameable. Windsteeds and vorquins probably deserve their own family.

Unconfirmed or currently untameable appearances

So far, these looks have only been found on untameable creatures but there's still a chance they'll be available.

Unclassified Model: Woodpeckers

All of the woodpeckers we've seen so far have been critters, so they may not become tameable beasts.

Unconfirmed or currently untameable appearances

So far, these looks have only been found on untameable creatures but there's still a chance they'll be available.
