Patch 7.2 Pet Bonanza: Gon, Lost Spectral Gryphon, Fenryr, and invading other class halls

Wow, what a week it’s been for Hunter pets! We’ve got a new solo challenge to tame Fenryr, two new spirit beasts, and there was also some shenanigans going on with Hunters invading the Shaman and Druid class halls to tame unique pets not available anywhere else.

I guess I’ll start with the first thing that happened early in the week, Fenryr. All of the hype sort of began when I tweeted this out (and posted it on Petopia):

I was not the original discoverer of this method, I was just the first to push it out to a large audience. Wowhead tweeted my pic soon after and Hunters began running Halls of Valor like their lives depended on it. It turned out that if you cleared HoV on Mythic, then left the dungeon and waited about 30 minutes for a soft reset, a tameable version of Fenryr would spawn in his cave. I mean, who goes back into a dungeon they’ve already cleared? No wonder it took a couple of weeks for anyone to notice. But it sure did seem like an odd way to hide a pet.

Guide to get the Challenge artifact appearance for Beast Mastery

The Mage Tower will be coming up again soon, along with another chance to earn the Serpentbite appearance for Titanstrike through the challenge scenario. It goes perfectly with our brand new sneaky snakes, don’t you think?

I just posted a guide to the Beast Mastery challenge on Wowhead that will hopefully help you complete this challenge. It has recommended gear, talents, macros/weakauras, and a full guide to the encounter.

The Beast Mastery one is a little less gear dependent than some of the others (at least in terms of item level), but healing legendaries make a huge difference here. Most people who complete it seem to have at least 1 of the 3 healing legendaries. I would have made a video, but unfortunately you can’t repeat the scenario once you’ve complete it (I didn’t know at the time).

Hope the guide helps. Good luck!

  

Legion Beast Mastery FAQ/Guide (updated for 7.2)

As of Patch 7.2.5, this post is no longer being updated.

I maintain the Beast Mastery Guide at Wowhead and got sick of keeping both up to date with every little change!

So check out Wowhead for my BM guide. It will always be up to date. I’ll leave the original post here for now, but just remember it’s not being updated anymore.

As of Patch 7.2.5, this post is no longer being updated.

Patch 7.2 Hunter Pet Preview: Feathermanes and Falcosaurs

Patch 7.2 is adding some new Hunter pets to tame including a whole new family. Falcosaurs are being added to the Raptor family. Gryphons, hippogryphs, wyvern, owlcats, and wolfhawks are being added to the new Feathermane family.

I know what you’re thinking: How am I supposed to tame new pets when my stable is already full? I’m right there with you. I dislike abandoning pets, especially rare ones, but it might be necessary in this case because having gryphon pets for my dwarf is too good to pass up.

Update June 2017: I have a guide on where to tame all the Feathermanes on Wowhead.

New Hunter pet family teased at BlizzCon (Gryphons and winged beasts)

Right after BlizzCon, Jeremy “Muffinus” Feasel tweeted that there were hints “somewhere on the internet” about a new Hunter pet family revealed at BlizzCon. Many Hunters, including myself, looked for this hint but couldn’t find anything. I was pretty sure I had watched all of the BlizzCon interviews and read most of the articles, but I was wrong.  Cernunnos over at Petopia finally found it. It was buried away in a video interview done by BlizzPro that hasn’t had many views up until now.

Hunters at BlizzCon 2016: Traps coming back for Beast Mastery & Marksmanship

We’ve gotten a few exciting Hunter tidbits at BlizzCon 2016 so far. Ion Hazzikostas revealed a boatload of new content coming in patches 7.1.5 and 7.2. Hunter stuff aside, there is an insane amount of stuff coming in these patches. I don’t even know where to start, but Wowhead has a good summary. Patch 7.1.5 is coming very soon (on the PTR right after BlizzCon) and promises some big class changes. The only specific Hunter change that was confirmed was a pretty big one…
