Don’t ask me how the physics work here or how those tiny wings can support such a front-heavy bodyweight which is apparently 90% beak, 10% feathers. Let’s just hope your group or raid needs a versatility buff at some point so you have more excuses to use these adorable freaks of nature.
Toucans (officially called Axebeaks, a fitting name) are part of the Bird of Prey family. They bring Tenacity (not to be confused with the pet spec), and Trick, which you can use to make them do loops at your side.
They come in four colors. Here’s a short video.
This week’s pet is one of my favorite birds, Aotona. You can find this Bird of Prey in Sholazar Basin, so if you’re looking for King Krush or Loque’nahak, it’s definitely worth flying by Aotona’s spawn points as well.
Aotona is still the only bird to use the “blue parrot” skin. Like many other birds, she also has the Trick ability which makes her do a loop. See here for a gif of it in action. We need more pets with trick abilities if you ask me! Fox pets can dance for their trick, so why not give bears and cats the ability to dance as well? There’s already animations available from the druid forms!
