Evara has found the first confirmed example of the new exotic Spirit beast family!
The beast is Loque’nahak, a rare level 76 that Evara found in Sholazar Basin, southwest of Nessingwary Base Camp. The model matches the new cat-like model we’ve heard described: a snow leopard-like cat with glowing blue eyes. Beast Lore on the untamed beast describes it as an Exotic pet. And when tamed, the beast’s name becomes “Spirit Beast”.
This raises as many interesting questions as it answers! Is this the only spirit beast, the only one we’ve found so far, or the only one that’s been added to the world yet? Will they all be rare? Will they all use this cat-like model?
And you know, this is the first silver-dragon rare of any kind that I have heard about in Northrend. Have all the rares been added with this build? Can any of them can be tamed? What kind of respawn time does Loque’nahak have, and how is his loot? (As if any hunter would kill him rather than tame him at this point!)
