8 new rare tamable beasts have been added, each of which provides a unique taming challenge. Will you be the first hunter to tame Deth'tilac, the rarest and most powerful of them all? Players will need to progress through the Hyjal Regrowth and Molten Front daily questing areas in order to unlock access to the full gamut of taming challenges.
Woot! Some new love for hunters! A lot of hunters enjoy the challenge of tracking down and stalking rare and interesting beasts to tame. And for those of us who are also collectors, many endeavor to have every rare spawn hunter pet available to us! And pets that have a gimmick to tame? Something special we have to do? Great!

But the pets with the most unique and interesting skins are all Exotic. Want a wolf that's imbued with lightning? A bear that looks like a veritable spirit of the north? A panther who's very being is made up of mist? Well then, you'll have to roll BM and tame a spirit beast!

I could perhaps see this if the other 2 specs got their own unique set of pets as well. But besides our two unique shots, there's honestly not that much difference between the specs. To me, the beast mastery talent seems like a cop-out. They couldn't find an 'interesting' shot to give BM hunters at the time they made the talent tree changes, so instead gave them more interesting pets, which granted does somewhat go with the name. But my chimaera shot in no way makes up for my not being able to get a rhino if I want, or a devilsaur.

Now, Blizzard hasn't confirmed that ALL of the these new pets will be Spirit Beasts, and I implore them to not make this special treat only available to hunters who choose to play as Beast Masters. But to so far have 2 of the 8 pets be Exotic is disappointing. So please Blizzard, don't let me down!
