Another new Spirit Beast has been discovered on the Patch 4.2 PTR. This latest spectral kitty is known as Magria.
Magria not only looks nearly identical to Ankha, but also poses the same taming challenge. According to this post in the Petopia forums, you must remove your armor before attempting the tame, as Magria’s damage scales with armor rating just as Ankha’s does.
Two new Gondrias – each with a slightly different hue. Two new unique taming challenges – both posing the same challenge.
Ah well… it’s the PTR so a lot can change between now and live.
Perhaps it’s a bit much to ask, but I was sort of hoping for eight new visually striking models, each with a unique skin, not just a slight recolor of a previous model.
If we have to grind rep in order to even have a chance at these new rare pets, then I want to see some exciting pets – each with a unique and difficult taming challenge.
If all I have to do is get naked in order to tame a Gondria retread, then what’s so great about that..?!
Again… it’s still early, so who knows… Maybe Ankha and Magria are intended for amateur hour. This is quite possible. The remaining taming-challenge pets may demonstrate increases in both taming difficulty, as well as badassedness in terms of appearance.
And yes, of course… I just made that word up.
But yea… I wanna see some new SB’s that rival Skoll and Loque’nahak as far as uniqueness is concerned.
