Just a little note for all you Beast Masters and hunter pet collectors out there! The definitive hunter pet blog
recently reported that everyone's favorite chromatic
is now tameable in the latest Cataclysm Beta build! I don't know about you guys, but this is my old school hunter's greatest nerd dream come true. Chromaggus isn't the only new Core Hound we'll be seeing in Cataclysm - there's another new skin available to hunters, a slightly more yellow-tinged beastie by the name of
