In the latest beta build, it seems Ghostcrawler has received a spiffy new look…
For those of you just finding out… Ghostcrawler is a new Spirit Beast that’s been discovered on the Cataclysm beta, hanging out in the southwest waters of Vash’jir.
Although his skin is that of the new Cataclysm crab model, he is a Spirit Beast, which means he’s a Ferocity pet with all of the Spirit Beast bells and whistles. His abilities are Roar of Courage (agility & strength buff), Spirit Mend (insta-heal + HoT) and Spirit Walk (prowl).
He’s level 85, so you won’t be able to tame him right away, but I imagine competition for him will be pretty stiff once hunters start reaching max level. Ghostcrawler is the only new Spirit Beast that’s been found in the beta so far.
The following screenshot was posted by Irie in the Petopia forums. It shows a recently tamed and enraged Ghostcrawler. Gotta love those glowing red eyes!
