Farewell, so long, and goodbye

The end of the beta is fast approaching, and with it comes the dreaded moment of saying goodbye to our beta pets. Some will be waiting for us next month in Pandaria when the expansion is officially released in September. Others will return to the wild for good, their journeying days at our sides over. But the hardest goodbyes will be for the pets who we will never (for the moment) be able to tame again.


ImageOne specific type of mushan was only very briefly flagged as a tameable crocolisk, but nonetheless won over numerous hunters' hearts.

Manglemaw the baby crocolisk and a group of tiger cubs were also briefly flagged as tameable. Gigantic baby pets have thus far been unintended, so it was unsurprising that they were not an exception to the rule. On the plus side, both shall live on in minipet forms. (Chuck is the adorable equivalent of Manglemaw.)

This is the unfortunate downside of beta testing and getting attached.  But better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.  Farewell, you kings and queens of beta.  You shall not be forgotten.
