Patch 9.1 Pet News!

Patch 9.1: Chains of Domination introduces us to the shattered realm of Korthia and all the strange creatures that inhabit it.

Two new models, Shardhides and Aquilons, are available to tame. Just as exciting is the fact that many previously-unused older looks have been added to existing tameable creatures. Sadly, none of the other new models are so far tameable, but we can hope they're added later in the patch.

Existing families with new models in Patch 9.1

Family: Mechanicals

Requires Mechanical Taming.Required Skill: Mechanical Taming
Gnome, Goblin and Mechagnome hunters automatically know how to tame Mechanicals. Hunters of other races must acquire the skill from a Mecha-Bond Imprint Matrix, crafted by Engineers who have at least 1 skill point in Legion Engineering.

Model: Aquilons

Flying counterparts to the phalynx, these aquilons would make great mechanical pets.

Family: Raptors

Model: Saddled Skeletal Raptors

Requires Undead Taming.Undead Taming

Family: Scorpids

Model: Crystal Scorpions

Unfortunately, this Legion model currently has a display bug: the stinger and some of other additional parts disappear after taming. This is due to the way those parts were implemented on the model, but hopefully they can be fixed.

Updates / replacements of older models in Patch 9.1

Family: Boars

Model: Boars

Replacement model ~ this model will update / replace an older one. In Patch 9.1, existing Hunter pets will automatically change to their related colour variant of this new model. See our Model Updates Page for more information.
