Looks like those Beast Masters who didn't want to have a Skoll lookalike following them everywhere can rest easy now.
Thank you for this Blizz!
Now I can finally bring forth my massive army of ridiculously oversized devilsaurs!
Disclaimer: use of huge pet army not recommended in instances or raiding.
YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS! I am so happy! This is probably my number one request for hunters in Legion, dual pets! I know Hati was already sort of a dual pet, especially now that BW and KC will affect her, but being able to transmogrify her to be like any of your other pets is just icing on the cake! Especially since you will be able to use ANY pet you want without having to worry about the buffs they bring!
Thank you Blizzard!
thank you blizzard, didn't think they'd listen to this from all thing but hey!
Question now is.... Where is this found and what do I have to give to get it?
your pet's" - typo :)
Does as the tooltip says; changes Hati (companion wolf from Titanstrike artifact) to look like your current pet. This is pretty good as you can now customize a bit more and not be just another hunter with a Hati next to you. I personally like to have mine as a green core hound, but each to their own! Enjoy!
Now, the big question is, How do I return Hati to his original look?
I leveled my hunter to 110 three days into the beta. BM spec and no Essence Swapper quest. Can't find quest giver. Suggestions?
this Item is the Reward of the Quest
in Trueshot Lodge available after reaching 110, the item itself has infinite uses, and Hati is permanently changed to that form, speaking to Mimiron again after using the item will offer a dialog option "Mimiron, I miss Hati's old look, can you change it back?" which will revert Hati to the lightning wolf model(the color is based of which appearance you are using)
will appear at a holopad to the right of your Scouting Table, beside the weekly Mythic+ chest and will only appear if approached in Beast Mastery Specialization.
the quest requires you collect the following:
, from Stoneblood Harpies in Val'sharah
, from Hatecoil Naga in Azsuna
-Edited- thanks adorabull for the input-
I am super thrilled about this item and I am very pleased it's a thing. Don't get me wrong though, I think Hati is very cool but like others who would feel obligated to get Skoll to have the matching set I am really glad i can customise it and be unique so that i'm not one with millions of Hati wolves running around
Can you also change Hati's name though? That would make me even happier. I get that there is lore and reason behind it but I would honestly just prefer to have a second pet entirely of my choosing or preference.
Does anyone know of a way to revert Hati to the original look?
Took me a while but I finally managed to complete the quest and use it.
Once Hati has been given a new look she still retains the visual lightning effect which is pretty cool. Thankfully the constant electricity crackling sound is gone which is the main reason I wanted to get this item.
It's also infinitely reusable.
In case you somehow manage to lose your Essence Swapper, you can go back to Mimiron's image and ask him for another one.
Edit: This was hotfixed Sept 13th and no longer works. Hati reverts to his original skin if you try it.
How to get the
If you have the swapper and want to get the Demon skin that looks like the old Warlock metamorphosis then you need to do the following (before they hot fix it).
1. Go to Orgrimmar
2. Go out side to the cave near the docks. (Coord 53, 9)
3. Make sure you have your pet out and go inside the cave.
4. Kill the mobs in there by standing very close to them. You will get a poison buff.
5. After a couple kills your pet will turn into the Demon.
7. Like this comment. :)
Some notes about the
1. You can use it multiple times. There is no limit.
2. If you lose it, just go back to Mimiron's Image and get a new one.
3. Once you use it you can not currently get the original Hati skin back (as far as I know of).
Essence Swapper can be used multiple times.... is not a one shot thing...so don't worry to much deciding.
Still no word of if we can change Haiti back to normal. However, you might hop over to Stormheim and tame
The lightning effect Haiti comes with covers up some of the lost effects, so it should be passable until we get a fix.
This is super fun to play around with. Like the Demon-skin mentioned below.
Here´s another thing you can do;
Go into a duel with a mage and let it polymorph your main pet into one of the different polymorph critters available, while you channel the Essence Swapper and youll have a permanent critter pet.
The pig is super cute when it fights and is perfect for that "farmer look".
Might want to go for the rare "baby" turtle if you want to stand out tho.
Also works with hex, (Snake, Frog, Cockroach)
End of tip.
You can get some ridiculous appearances like a baby murloc, lasher, warlock's metamorphosis or leper gnome :)
By using a discombobulator Ray, I have now my own Leper gnome pet who obeys his gnome masters every command. Please, for the love of god, don't change this item because it's fun!
change hati back to its original form after use. This has been in beta forums for a while now. Blizz never fixed. If enough of us tweet/complain then maybe they will fix this.
When Hati is transformed, it causes him to have *all* the sound effects of the pet that you would normally have. This means that things like roaring devilsaurs, heavy turtle footfalls, flapping bird/bat wings, slobber-roaring cats, snarling and arguing hydra heads, and of course howling wolves will be duplicated as well.
Be prepared for that, if you transform him into a pet that has ambient noises. It can become quite noisy!
After the cursed sailor transformed hati into one of the cursed he was changed back to his original form when the debuff ended, so if anyone wants the original hati look back i think this is the way to get it for now
I saw someone with Hati changed into a Murloc.
? Does anyone know?
When used on the teroclaw pets (such as
) Hati will grow to TWICE your character's size. I'm not sure if this is a tauren scaling issue or the pet itself but it's certianly a sight to see!
(The warlock demon was also very large. Other pets may have this bug but I can only confirmed teroclaw!)
For those looking to use this to get the baby murloc...wish for luck and hold onto patience. The murloc you are looking for is in Howling Ford //
/chillmere-oracle#abilities . You want the oracles.
I had my pet go stand on one, then slowly kite it to the next cluster...grab one there and then went to one more cluster. Killed the ones that weren't oracles there and ended up getting two more that spawned. I had 4 by then end all beating on my pet.
After that, I just kept spamming the essence swapper. Since your pet is so high in level, they miss a lot and it can be a little time consuming and a lot of it is just pure luck on getting it at the same time they change your pet into a murloc . If he turns way before your timer on the swapper is up, they will aggro on you-no worries, just FD and they will go back to your pet. Also stand back a bit, as every so often they will ice you and that will interrupt the spell.
Took me about a half hour, maybe a tad more....so not all that bad. I suspect Blizz will either nerf this or just let it run it's course, since Hati is connected to your gun?
Until whichever, enjoy...he's worth the effort. lol Good luck!
PS BEEN HOTFIXED...my cute little murloc was gone today and I'm assuming it is the same with all the other unique skins people have found. Just wanted to make sure to note this, so no one wastes their time on it.
For those of you trying to change it to a demon, undead, or skulking hulk.
Its been hotfixed for atleast the demon. I havent been able to test the others.
I changed my Hati back to its original look accidentally. My original purpose was to achieve that favorite demon form on Hati.
- First go to the cave near the harbor outside the Orgrimmar.
- Attack humanoid mobs in there to stack 5 of poisons.
- Your pet will look like a demon form.
- Use Essence Swapper and make Hati look like that demon.
But when I relog my character next day my Hati was back to its original look. I hope it works for you guys who want to change it back to its original look.
Had something odd happen today.
Was doing Mythic Mogu'shan, and as I finished up on Elegon, something happened that changed my pet back to Hati's original appearance.
So just an FYI, not sure how it happened, also not sure if it happens everytime, or even if it was because of that boss, but something removed the pet appearance back to Hati's original look.
There have been 1some reports of players having thier Hati skin reset back to its original form after the latest patch. This mainly happens if thier skin was changed to a non-beast swap such as the Meta-Locks and pre-cata worgen models.
Mine personally was the Troll berserker model that could be used from Sunken Temple, which also reset after a feign death randomly.
I went to re-swap back to the model I used, only to find that my pet becomes an invalid target once it is changed, but if you cast the swap before your pets model changes to the model you want it still works and the swap will change your Hati to whatever you wanted.
I am unsure if it will reset again and also unsure if this method still works with the other special models besides the one I used
I had used the swapper for a couple of days and most recently to a quillen. When I logged on this afternoon Hati was back to his original look. That is cool with me. I can use it and it resets.
Sep 14th ninja hotfix removed the possibility to turn Hati into a Demon Form Warlock, a Murloc, and anything that isn't a regular (or exotic) pet skin
You can no longer use this item to transform your Hati into a polymorphed skin, such as demon form, murloc, undead, etc. If you do, it will automatically transform back into a wolf form. Thank you Blizzard for once again taking away the fun.
I don't know what they actually fixed, but today I logged in and Hati was back to the original appearance. Finally! I'll definitely not going to use the essence swapper again until I'm 100% sure that the bug is gone D:
September 14 hotfix information from
Hati will now reset appearance to the default blue wolf form the first time summoned.
Developers’ Notes: Due to a bug, some hunters had Hati transform with the Essence Swapper into appearances that are unintended. A fix has been made for this to prevent future issues, but to get rid of any unintended appearances that players may already have, Hati’s appearance will be reverted to the default blue wolf when first summoned, and should retain any appearance changes thereafter. The Essence Swapper will continue to allow you to change Hati’s appearance to match that of your currently active hunter pet.
Beware! Read that they fixed hati and decided to give the essence swapper a try. I was under the impression with the hotfix that the first time you summon hati after you log in, or equip your artifact she will be normal, thus reseting her.
Oh how wrong I was. Nothing I do resets hati back to normal. Super bummed.
If anyone was wondering, this item copies pet transparencies as well. If you use the swapper on a pet like
, Hati will become transparent to match them. Electricity effects remain unchanged, however.
If used on a crab pet, for example, you will not be able to use
He will not count as a crab and I now regret using the swapper on him.
Found a way to currently turn Hati back to normal.
I've tried dueling someone with Polymorph/Hex, but that only reverts Hati temporarily. With this method so far it hasn't reverted back into any previous pet forms so this is what needs to be done:
Find someone to go along with you, you're going to need someone as a trigger-man essentially. Go to the cave in Durotan by the docks that have the Orcs with the demon blood. Stand far, away, and have your pets both stand on top of an orc on passive. Once they are standing, have your trigger-man attack and kill the orc. The pets will get a stack of the demon blood. Repeat this three more times for four stacks.
On the fifth stack, have the trigger-man pause before they kill the fifth orc. Start your cast with the Essence Swapper, and when it's about halfway done, have the trigger-man kill the orc. On the fifth death, your pet and Hati will both attempt to turn into Demons. However, with the hotfix Hati can no longer do this. Hati will turn back into the blue wolf.
I've hearthed (which is what turned Hati back into the previous pet before), and Hati was still the crackling blue wolf. Considering I had him turned into a polymorphed creature prior to this attempt, I think that the old skin has stuck.
I will update if anything changes.
You know I think they could have an easy fix for this. 3 easy fixes.
- Why not change the essence swapper to a buff you know a on and off feature. when its turned on it copies the skin of whatever pet you had out at the time You used it and then when you use it again instead of doing the same thing it turns off the skin so you have to use it a 3rd time to reapply the new skin.
- Or make it so that Thorim always has Hati beside him as I am sure he does and if you fly over there click on hati and Use the essence swapper it will copy the skin. But only on Hati will it work like that.
- Finally, why not introduce a special quest to acquire him as a pet. I know they did something similar for Gara. That if you did the quest line to get him. and abandoned him by mistake and wanted him back. Well the quest will not be available anymore so they brought out a special version of him that only people who have previously tamed him can reacquire him,
Comment away guys if Blizz see this maybe this will give them their answer.
It was killing me not beeing able to go back to original look...
Then I found a solutoin!
I have made a video how to revert Hati's look -
Hope I helped :)
How do i get the troll berserker look? is it still possible?
You can turn Hati into a Saurok too. Go to the Isle of Thunder, into Ihgaluk Crag... exactly, the area where you got turned into a saurok, and your pet into either a mini saurok or a blob, a roach, among other things.
Just keep attacking the sauroks in the area to reset the transformation on your pet, or just make him use any non-attacking ability (like
), that he'll turn to
his normal form
, while he is not turned into any of the above
IMMEDIATELY USE THE ITEM ON HIM
, while channelling, watch if he turned into a saurok, if not you may cancel the channel and repeat with either sending him to attack or reuse any ability... rinse.
The fact that you need to channel while he's in normal form, is that you cannot
using the item on your pet while he's transformed into a saurok, but if you are
ALREADY CHANNELLING ON HIM
when he turns into a saurok, you win. :D
This strat may work with the demon too. Blizz should allow us to use that one, since the pet doesn't turn into a damn big demon, eitherway, you can use the diminish pet glyph, as I did, and still got a not so big demon Hati around.
This is how I changed Hati back to Hati. I went to the cave next to Orgimmar. Killed orcs til I got 5 stacks of the debuff that made Hati & my mana saber into demons. After the debuff wears off, Hati takes it's original form. Easy.
I just saw someone with a Hati that had a Val'kyr appearance, anyone know how to obtain this? Must of slipped through the cracks in regards to hotfixes
Hati Form Murloc
Hati Form Slime
Hati Form Cockroach
Hati Form Undead
Hati Form Troll Hulk
Hati Form Val'kyr
Hati Form - Giant ( DEVILSAUR )
As a side note, I leveled as survival. When I hit 110 and went back to Trueshot the quest did not automatically pop up. I had to speak with the image and then the quest was given.
Seems like Hati is bugged if you use this to swap her model to boss models like Thok or Chimaeron. I don't know what causes this though. I wanted to use Chimaeron's model and I just got this giant boss roaming dalaran. I reported it to blizz in hopes they fix this.
Hati's too big *workaround*
Hey, y'all. If your Hati's too big, there's a current work around. It's not ideal, but, it works.
1) Head shy south of Orgrimmar to Dustwind Cave.
- Directly bellow Drygultch Revine.
2) Have Hati and your main pet manually attack the local Orc NPC's.
3) With each kill, allow Hati to stack up 'Fel Blood' to 5, turning into a Demon.
4) Allow Hati's Demon form to roll off, reverting her form.
Currently on 7.1
has a new dialogue option that allows to return Hati to his default look.
I found out about the 'super size' Hati glitch about a day before the fixed it. During that brief time i made a humorous video taking advantage of ThokZilla.
While the essence swap bug of 7.0.3 is well gone the idea of differing sizes of hati essence swaps came to mind while I was staring at my Thok swap and wondering why it was slightly larger than normal devilsaurs. So I ran some tests with a pair of wonderful spiders who share the same model and color but vary greatly in size,
. To the surprise of either everyone or no one the size varies greatly. So for those looking for some larger or smaller versions of hati with a specific skin, keep in mind the scale of the beast you first tame. Creatures who are just generally large like devilsaurs may have a smaller variance from one to the next.
It would seem after some additional testing with some core hounds, crabs, raptors and twitchy silithids that the original post is not actually the case and Thok and Tero simply have some sort of "I am become larger" stat for Hati. I may continue on to make a list of differently sized essence swaps as it seems there are certain cases they are differing size. A cool thing that should stay around, not sure if its intentional but its in the game.
Hunter. Can anyone tell me how to get to Felbane Camp. also is it a pvp zone. Trying to get
Essence Swapper quest done. Cheers Guys
Mimiron, at your Order Hall, can now change Hati's appearence back to her original form.
for people that wonder how to change Hati appearance back, you can talk again with
, he will give option
"Mimiron, I miss Hati's old look, can you change it back?"
, just click on that option and he will change back Hati appearance (sorry about my english)
Okay blizz, too big pets, what about warlock's Doomlord? Since 7.1 they are way bigger than I remember. And what about UDK's Abomination pet? Too big too. Both pets bigger than most big mounts in the game.
How often can you change Hati's appearance? or is it a one shot deal?
For those who want to return Hati to his original look. He uses the same model as the wolves located in Vale of Eternal Blossoms (MoP), tame one of them, swop essence and Hati is his old self again.
I just wanted to mention that if you still have a pet that has a visual aura on it from a time when many could be tamed that way (i.e. boar on fire, wolf covered in oil, pink aura diseased bear), Hati will not take on that effect and look like the normal boar, wolf, bear, whatever.. You can, however, duplicate the slime pet from WOTLK if you have it =)
Now if only they would fix the issue with Hati scaling incorrectly with so many pet models... :/
Just in case, because I know I'VE been running around and even made a GM request ; to make the image of Mimiron appear, you have to be in Beast Master spec, even if you already have the quest. I leveled up my hunter in beast master so when I dinged 110 I took the quest, then respecced Marksmanship for dungeons and raids. The next day I did the quest (that was 3 days ago), and just turned it in because I just realized I had to be in the correct spec.
Am I the only person who wishes this would also work the other way around? I wouldn't mind having two Hati skinned wolves.
ok, looked at a lot of comments until my eyes were fuzzy. One thing I didn't see was...If you want to make your pet look like Hati can it be done?
Does anyone have any pets that currently do not resize correctly. My thok is still way to big when in hati form and from time to time grows so big all I can see is his foot. Is anyone else having these issues with pets?
If you delete this item you can restore it by talking to Image of Mimiron inside the Hunter class hall. In order to see him you have to stand right next to his image transporter so that he knows you are trying to summon him.
The larger size on some pets (like Thok, which looks great with Hati's lightning) get quite large. I'm sure my guild's tank will just love this.
I'm so disappointed that the grow/shrink bug hasn't been fixed. I lucked out with my troll hunter, and her tigers are fine, but my worgen's ravens are all wrong.
Is the problem completely random, or does it affect specific pet models? If the latter, has anyone gathered a list of models that actually work?
My troll tigers are the model introduced in Mists - Hati is the white version (sadly I can't remember exactly where I tamed it.)
The drop rate must be extremely low, as I've cleared out the Seabound Mystic area quite a few times now and have yet to drop the quest item.
I really love my Gara, and I love having 2 of them, looks very good :)
I propose that those of us who loved having Hati around politely suggest that Blizzard make this now defunct Essence Swapper switch the appearance of the pet summoned with the talent
INTO Hati. Mimiron could return to our Class Hall to let us switch the appearance BACK into the default skin. With this option it might be even possible to have TWO Hati running around if you use the Swapper on that pet, stick it in your active Slots and then Swap the new First slot to a Hati appearance! This would be a dream come true for many hunters!
Edit (Patch 8.1.5): HATI IS NOW ONCE AGAIN AVAILABLE! The Essence Swapper DOES NOT work on the new Hati. When Hati is in the Animal Companion slot, there is no change in appearance if the item is used (also no effect if any other beast is in the same slot), so no changing Hati to look like your other pet. Here's hoping this will change in the future! However, you CAN now tame MULTIPLE Hatis and run around with two!
Have you seen my
Don't think you can get this quest line any more. feels bad
If you're wondering if you can have any skin/color Spirit Beast you want because you still have your Essence Swapper... the answer is no. I spec'd into
and tried it with Hati as my active pet and Hati as the pet in the first slot of my stable. Neither worked.
So...... what is this good for now? Nothing?
4-15-20 - as far as I can tell, this is no longer working with the multiple-skinned Hati.
You are here because you are wondering what, if anything, the
can be used for, or if it is still viable for its original purpose.
The bad news first: It can not be used for any sort of swap for your pet appearance any longer, which is what the item was used for in Legion. It allowed you to have Hati take on the appearance of any tamed pet that you had in your hunter pet collection. Now if you are using the talent
, you can have two pets, the appearance of the extra pet is specifically set to the pet in the very first slot in your stable. This means, if you want to have the appearance of two
, for instance, you will need to tame two of them, have one as your main pet, and the other in the first slot in your stable. Good luck with that!
So now you are looking at the
as useless, right, and figure you'll just go vendor it for that massive "1 c" amount, right?
WRONG, don't do it!
Because this is a rather awesome item in terms of what it CAN do.
- Clicking on the
causes an really cool visual effect of lightning casting at your main pet, think Emperor Palpatine's Force Lightning, from the Star Wars franchise.
- This cast is 10 seconds long and can be restarted repeatedly, meaning you can continue to hit your pet with lightning for as long as you want.
- The range for the lightning is 30 yards.
- You can use the pet "Move To" command to position your pet up to that distance away from you, and blast away with your own version of force lightning.
- For extra fun, toss in your favorite Darth Sidious quotes in a macro, such as
"Power! Unlimited power!"
"Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the dark side!"
- Or, entirely ignore the Star Wars reference and just shock your pet to your heart's content, of course, hoping that the Human Society doesn't catch wind of what you are doing ;)
Whether this item's current existence is an oversight by Blizzard remains to be seen. One thing is for sure, if they remove the items ability, or even turn it into a toy, it will be disappointing. Obviously removing the ability altogether would be sad, but even as a toy they will almost assuredly put some sort of irritating cooldown on using it, something it does not have at this point.
I've added a screenshot for what the effect looks like with your pet at range, enjoy!
... Why not just revamp it as a toy that lets hunters change the form of any pet? That way they don't have to do a spec revamp, but we can still use a pet model we want rather than being stuck with like a ferocity pet model
