Among the 37 new pet looks added in Patch 5.1, 8 of them are unique-rare ghostly models. Where can you find these phantom beasties, you ask..? Undead country, of course.
All of the new ghostly rares are found in either Tirisfal Glades or the Plaguelands. If you’re into one-of-a-kind-pets – especially translucent ones – then you may want to give this post a read…
Ghostly Rare Pets in Patch 5.1
Apart from Spirocula, I didn’t actually tame any of these pets; however, I don’t believe there are any kooky taming mechanics to worry about, as these are by no means taming challenge pets. I mainly wanted to set out after them to get a first-hand look at the new pet models, and to verify their existence and locations for you fine folks. 🙂
Alright…so here’s a guidebook to help you on your ghostly pet hunt…
The Eastern Plaguelands is home to 4 of the new ghostly rares. Here is a map showing their locations…
Spirocula – Level 40 Worm
Spirocula is a ghostly white worm who creeps around in a pit just SW of Light’s Hope Chapel. Although he’s only level 40, keep in mind that he is exotic, so you’ll need to be a BM Hunter who’s at least level 69 in order to tame this exotic beast.
I like this re-skinned version of the classic worm model.
Snort – Level 41 Saber Worg
Heading SW from Spirocula’s stomping grounds, you’ll encounter Snort – a ghostly brown Saber Worg. He can be found taking a nap on the south shore of Lake Mereldar.
He’s hostile, so he’ll aggro if you get too close…
Fene-mal – Level 41 Carrion Bird
Fene-mal is a ghostly white Outland model Carrion Bird who hangs out in the center of the zone. Fene-mal flies around in a circle above the ruins of an old house near Blackwood Lake.
Fene-mal is a pretty nice looking bird. Here’s a closer look…
Varah – Level 43 Boar
Varah can be found standing atop a pile of bones in Terrordale, which is located in the NW part of the zone. He’s frickin’ huge, so he’s pretty easy to spot if he’s out.
He shrinks down after taming, of course, but beforehand he’s a massive Hogzilla.
There’s a look at the ghostly unique rares to be found in the EPL.
The next stop on our tour is…
Heress – Level 39 Carrion Bird
Heress can be found flying around the woods – just NW of Felstone Field.
Heress is a ghostly yellow Outland edition carrion bird that looks a lot like Spiteflayer — the only difference being that Heress is partially see-through.
Given that Spiteflayer is the only other bird that shares this model, the ghostly version is a very unusual look. I’m not a huge fan of the mutant two-headed vultures, but I’m actually kinda liking this one.
Heress is the only ghostly new rare beastie in Western Plaguelands, so now we head to…
3 of the new ghostly unique rares can be found in Tirisfal Glades. None of them are exotic and all 3 are low level – making them great catches for little undead hunterlings.
Plague – Level 8 Demon Dog
Plague can be found sleeping in a stall inside the barn at Garren’s Haunt.
Plague is basically a ghostly version of the blue darkhounds in Tirisfal Glades.
Nighthowl – Level 9 Saber Worg
Nighthowl is a dark grey Saber Worg who spawns just west of Agamand Mills. If he’s out, you’ll finding him sitting like a statue near the edge of the cliffs.
Like a lot of these new rares, he’s jumbo size and easy to spot – even if he is semi see-through.
Bonechewer – Level 7 Carrion Bird
Bonechewer is a ghostly blue vulture who flies around the tower at Scarlet Palisade.
He’s the standard carrion bird model, so he basically looks like a phantom version of Vultros.
Ok, so that’s it for the ghostly unique rare pets that were introduced in this most recent patch. I hope this guide helps you with your rare pet hunting efforts. 😉
