Please excuse my cheesy Strongbadian heavy metal moniker of this new Spirit Beast. I am a little sleep deprived at the moment and feeling a bit loopy.
I had a feeling that Blizzard wasn’t going to limit the Spirit Beast models to cats only. While my preference was for a black worg with a red aura, this incredibly awesome looking blue wolf with an electrifying aura will do nicely.
Holy crap that thing is cool looking..!
This new Spirit Beast was recently spotted on the 3.2 PTR. His name is Skoll, and he can be found lurking in the Storm Peaks. Skoll is a neutral mob just like Loque’nahak and Gondria, so be on the lookout for the yellow dot on your mini-map if you happen to be looking on the ptr. He is of course an exotic pet, so only Hunters with the 51 point Beast mastery talent will be able to tame him.
According to a few of the Hunters that have tamed him, Skoll can be found on the Snowdrift plains and in the Foot Steppes. Both of those locations are also known spawn areas for the Time-Lost Proto Drake, so I imagine getting this guy won’t be all that easy. I’m sure more locations will be known in the next few days, so count on me posting a map once more locations are verified and confirmed.
He possesses the same abilities, Prowl and Spirit Strike, as the other two Spirit Beasts. I’m not sure yet what his howl or growl emotes sound like, but I’ll be sure to find out. I am downloading the 3.2 patch as we speak.
I won’t be able to patrol for him until maybe later tomorrow, but I am making a point to acquire this guy on the public test realm. I want to tame him before the patch goes live so that I can get it out of my system before I go and abandon one of my prized pets. The last thing I need is another Ferocity pet, especially an exotic one.
Christ… I’m gonna end up abandoning my worm for this stupid thing, I just know it. More stable slots please!!!
