there's a list of the new capturable pets blizzard will be giving us in patch 5.1 over at perks n peeves. there's more, like the new pets dropping in vanilla raids, but those aren't what i'm excited about (though they are cool). no, what's got me tingly is the fact that almost all the new pets are from families that are horribly underrepresented in the wild right now - humanoid, mechanical, magic, and dragon. i'm hoping this is a sign that blizzard realizes that the current dominance by critters, beasts, and flyings is monotonous as crap, and that they'll make it more varied and interesting in the future.
plus, you know, a flying book? i gotta have that!
