Dire Horns

Hunter
From the new PTR notes

Dire Horns have been added as a tameable species for Hunters that have learned the required skill. Aspiring Dire Horn owners should seek out clues regarding these auspicious beasts.


So my question is, what is a Dire horn?
I'm guessing this:

Sucks to be a Warlock!!!

Need to dig out my Land Before Time series...you know, for "creativity" +)
I have a feeling we might be vastly disappointed lol...
Considering there is a mount model of the triceratops, the green one could just be the model of what it drops off of.

Doesn't mean they can't be tameable of course :P But it's pretty soon to tell.
WOOHOO!!! Thank the gods we don't have to worry about anything being fixed, and having to learn how our new rotations may work, or checking out which revamped talent might be worth taking! /sarcasm

So, as usual, instead of FIXING the things that need it, hunters will be getting NEW PETS?!?! Makes me wonder what new nerf they're going to drop between now, the PTR, and actual release.

U jelly?

Muy feísimo...

I just hope it's not block your vision large and shut off speakers loud, also i want it in purple, please and thank you.
anyone have any guesses on the buff it can provide? maybe it will be an actual damaging ability? maybe both if it's exotic?

Doubt it. It would force it to become mandatory in any raid setting that already has all of the buffs.
I am seriously rolling around in circles foaming at the mouth here. It will be a mount AND a pet? Blizzard, my love for you has grown to the stars!

Probably another AOE move. Maybe a cleave?

As long as it somehow prevents Claw/Bite/Smack from triggering (i.e. channeled like the other two, or shared cooldown) it won't be a DPS increase single target, but instead it well be better for AOE/Cleave fights, which is perfectly acceptable as a pet trait

Uhm...

Well, Dire Horns are not only Triceratops, they have Ankylosaurus armor too, even the tail club.

Also, there is a "berserk" animation in Wowhead's 3D viewer, hiting the ground with the tail.

So, I guess it's special ability is a strong AoE, probably even with interrupt or stunt.

Dragon Roar or Arcane Torrent, IMO.

Buff, I dunno /lol, maybe additional aggro transfer?

I want it for BM, not a "common" family.

See ya.
