I am absolutely thrilled!Unique models? Nope. But does that really MATTER? I have my favorite pet already (good ol' Jinx the Springpaw) and will continue to use it - but now I have goals, I have something to actually HUNT. These are exactly what I was hoping for - tamable pets that are challenging, that take skill, planning, coordination to pull off - only the best of Hunters will call these pets their own, and that is the most alluring concept to me.I will gladly bag as many of them as I can to join my stable.

Aren't the spiders using a new model? It doesn't exist outside of 4.2.

Yeah, the models are new, but there are some normal mobs that use the model that are tamable. Nevertheless, it IS an awesome model, and these rare ones have some exclusive colors.

Well said sir! All these people complaining about simple re-skins are missing the point. The very fact that Blizzard is introducing rare beasts that have special requirements for taming is a reward in its self. I mean, what other class is getting a sweet mini-game like this? In a way, it is sort of a stealth re-introduction of a class quest for hunters.Far more important than the superficial shell of the pet is the feat that it represents. The gold medal awarded to an Olympic athlete is not really that important. It is the fact that the individual was the best at what ever he or she did and the world acknowledges it. Some times, the journey is far more important than the destination.

Your springpaw lynx is 'unique' since hardly anyone uses them. Heck, I considered running through Silvermoon to get one since lynxes (the red ones, the oranger ones can be found in Netherstorm) are rare on Alliance side.But then I went off and found Pogeyan, who has so much more personality than Sambas (though he has nice hair). It's nice never having to run into another one and dispelling the illusion that after I tamed, it respawned a clone out there somewhere for someone else :/
