Fresh off the 2.4.2 Public Test Realms, here is more info on the new Dire Raven hunter pet.
The Dire Raven is a level 67-68 carrion bird that lives in Raven’s Wood in the northwest part of Blade’s Edge Mountains (up by Grishnath). Dire Ravens in the wild are non-aggressive and very easy to tame.
These beautiful birds have a completely unique appearance among pets that I believe is the same as the non-epic flight form for Alliance druids.
Once tamed, Dire Ravens knows the skills Dive Ranks 3 and Screech Rank 5. They have the normal carrion bird diet of meat and fish and can learn all the skills that carrion bids can learn, including Bite, Claw, Dive, Screech, Growl, Cower, and the passive skills.
