|Gib the Banana-Haorder & Darkmoon Monkey|
My absolute favorite has got to be Gib the Banana-Hoarder. Gib is a level 52 unique monkey - with a hat! Or more specifically - a fez. He looks exactly like the Darkmoon Monkey companion pet too! He's just a slightly larger version of him. (See screenshot on the left.) He also flings poo at people.
Another pet I've absolutely fallen in love with in this zone is Kash, the green cat. Kash is a unique level 52 hunched green cat with orange stripes. This cat is basically Winna's Kitten (color) + Pogeyan (model). I've always loved this coloration, but was never a fan of the typical non-hunched cat look. This kitty just may be replacing my Savage for a while. (WTB more stable slots Blizz!)
There are also two different unique spiked wind serpents to be found here! Ionis, level 53, has a beautiful rusty orange and grey coloration. Yukiko, also level 53, has a neat white and grey (with a little bit of orange) color.
The rest of the new beasts are not unique, but there are still some really cool looking ones. Chupacabros, the level 53 spiked green raptor, is now the lowest level tamable raptor in this model and color. You may recognize his look from the raptors roaming about Blade's Edge Mountains in Outland.
Orlix the Swamplord, the level 54 wasp, is an absolutely gorgeous purple and pink color that previously couldn't be tamed until reaching level 85 and heading into Zul'Gurub. Then of course, there's Seawing - a bird after my own heart. (I just can't get enough of my matching pets and mounts.) Seawing (like Dustflight the Cowardly in Stonetalon Mountains) looks just like the Swift Forest Strider and the Darkmoon Hatchling companion pet. They make quite an ensemble, that's for sure! ^-^
Spawn timers for all of the rares in this zone are fairly similar, and seem to be somewhere in the 2-3 hour range from what I've witnessed so far.
