[Update] Unfortunately we’ve learned that previously-tamed Sunreaver Dragonhawks will not be getting the cool new look when Patch 3.2 goes live. See this post for more details.
* … if, that is, you happen to be a level 80 Alliance hunter.
Sunreaver Dragonhawks can be found on the live realms right now as the ‘taxi’ mounts at Sunreaver’s Command in Crystalsong Forest. They use the Sunreaver faction, so they can only be tamed by Alliance hunters.
(In the past, however, Horde hunters were able to go ‘At War’ with the Sunreavers and tame these dragonhawks, so some Horde hunters may still have one in the stable. I wish I still had mine on Mania, but I released it for Patch 3.1. Argh!)
Right now, they have a red dragonhawk appearance. But on the 3.2 PTR, the Sunreaver taxis have switched to the new black/red dragonhawk appearance — the same one that is used for the upcoming Sunreaver Dragonhawk mount. Unfortunately, Patch 3.2 also renders the Sunreaver dragonhawk taxi completely untameable by anyone.
But according to Ryna on the Arcania forum, existing Sunreaver Dragonhawk pets get the new appearance. That’s her with her amazing new dragonhawk on PTR above.
So if you want to own a soon-to-be-very-cool-and-retired pet — and you are a level 80 Alliance — you might consider picking up a Sunreaver Dragonhawk before the next patch.
Of course, this may change before Patch 3.2 goes live. There are no guarantees: Blizzard may decide to replace the entire dragonhawk instead of just reskinning it so that the existing tamed versions don’t get the cool skin. But if you’ve got an open spot in your stable, what do you have to lose?
