Even though MoP is just weeks away, there were some changes in the latest beta build.
Numerous wild pets are no longer in the Pet Journal. It's not clear if they've been officially removed or if the recent patch caused a bug for these companions.
- Amorous RoosterAlthough these pets don't exist in the journal (on the beta) at the moment, I did see a few of these in the wild that were still capturable. So perhaps it really is just a bug? We'll see.
- Crimson Moth
- Devouring Maggot
- Emperor Crab
- Eternal Strider
- Feverbite Hatchling
- Garden Moth
- Shrine Fly
- Silkbead Snail
- Wharf Rat
- Wild Silkworm
Honestly, I wouldn't be too upset to see a few (but not all) of the pets on this list officially removed since they were especially difficult to find and many had low spawn rates/times to begin with. Plus these pets share the same model as other pets, so it's not as if collectors would be losing out on a very unique pet.
If all these companions stay uncapturable, the total number of pets in the journal is 492. Finally, under the 500 cap! But not by much. XD
