Taming Pterrowings Thread
they where at one point seen a couple of people with them
They were never intentionally tamable. There was a spectral hydra and slime in sholzar basin early in wrath that thought they were crokalisks (it was a major bug). The people who managed to tame them were permitted to keep them, but the bug was fixed. The same goes for the old grim totem spirit wolves (which we now get a look alike as a spirit beast), unintentional pet tamable, blizz fixes it but lets us keep it. For lore and understandable reasons, the people who had managed to tame worgen in the days leading up to Cata had their pet worgen taken away (another unintentional pet tame bug)
I believe the Pterrorwinds are the same family as the pterodactlys in ungoro crater, they may not like the animation/models those have, and fixing those to work as well as the pterorwings would be more work than blizz wanted for a patch pet. They seem more willing to add multiple pets on an expansion release.
THey added 5 pets in BC, 9 pets in wrath, 5 pets in cata, and 7 pets in mists. I believe they added spirit beasts in a patch, 1 followed by new spirit beasts every patch or so, less often in cata, and the porcupines in mists. They added a new pet this expac in a patch, but its rather rare it seams for them to add families with out the presence of an expansion, this time they did so in a patch, but from what i can tell/remember, its rare.
When I finally got my 2pc a week or two ago I was sorely disappointed to see that lame thing hovering next to me shooting lightning bolts.
