PTR Notes: Pets aplenty

The good people over at Petopia have posted a lot of new info about pets seen on the PTR for 2.1. First, there's been four new pets found so far-- a new Blackwind Warp Chaser, a Ravager from Hellfire Peninsula, the Sky Shadows in Deadwind Pass (that scared the heck out of you even before the expansion was released), and this amazing purple tallstrider called a Dodostrider (that last one has hunters buzzing).

One pet will be made untamable-- apparently there are issues with the Death Ravager that gets spawned in a quest in the lowbie Draenei area, Azuremyst Isle, and so hunters won't be able to tame him any more. Also, Petopia has PTR info on two new trainable pet abilities, Avoidance and Cobra Reflexes. Avoidance has two ranks and reduces the damage done to pets by AoE (this is aimed directly at endgame PvE pet viability), and Cobra Reflexes has one rank and increases attack speed at a cost to damage done.

As usual, all this info is still subject to change. But it's great that Blizzard is getting more and more pets (and pet abilities) in the mix. Here's hoping the trend continues.

Around Azeroth: Entering Deadwind Pass


I agree with Valens of We Know on Eitrigg, who sent in this shot. Deadwind Pass is creepy. Really creepy. A screenshot really can't do it justice, though -- if you actually venture there in-game, you'll see the corpses in the trees slowly swaying in the wind. And if you follow the roads, the majority of the zone is unnervingly empty. I recall my first trip through Deadwind Pass as a young warlock trying to complete a quest that required me to visit the Swamp of Sorrows for the first time. Approaching the entrance to Deadwind Pass, and seeing the corpses and warning signs, I asked on my guild line whether it was safe to run through. "Of course!" they all told me -- and they were right, but walking down the empty road towards the swamp, I couldn't shake the feeling that there must be something somewhere nearby that was responsible for these things.

Do you have a unique shot of Azeroth or Outland that you'd like to show off to the rest of the world? Tell us about it by e-mailing aroundazeroth@gmail.com! You can attach a picture file or send us a link to one -- and don't worry about formatting, we'll take care of that part.
