Where the Wild Things Are: Savage

First up on my in-depth series spotlighting the Pandarian rares is the striking white tiger Savage.  We'll be journeying to the other half of the Jade Forest with Glimmer later in the week.

Hey everyone! It's Kalliope. I'm hiding here in the Jade Forest, watching the fearsome tiger Savage prowl around.

He's a level 85 Pandarian tiger, the only white one in the game. The grey Pandarian tigers look similar in certain lighting, but the difference is always visible in the eyes. The grey tigers have pupils in their cyan eyes, while Savage's dark blue eyes lack them. 
As with all other cats in the World of Warcraft, Savage will have two abilities after being tamed. The first is roar of courage, which is getting a facelift in Pandaria, along with the other agility/strength buffs. The new Roar of Courage gives a mastery raid buff that scales with the hunter's level, maxing out at 3000 at level 90. The other ability is prowl, which allows him to enter stealth mode with a 50% movement speed penalty and grants a 20% damage bonus to his first attack from stealth.

Savage leaves bloody tracks when he walks. His prints are rather large, but their dark green coloration often blends in with the grass. This can make spotting some of his tracks rather difficult.

Savage travels around the north-central part of the zone, never quite crossing paths with Glimmer, the other Jade Forest rare. Most of his trail passes through aggressive mobs, so finding a safe spot to tame him at 85 could be a bit challenging.

His approximate spawn timer appears to be around two to eight hours here on the beta.

For the most current information on Savage and other hunter pets, be sure to visit Petopia and the Petopia forums.

From the floor of the Jade Forest, this is Kalliope showing you where the wild things are.
