    In honor of Bristlebane Day, the Development team has brought back the beefy, beloved pet of Bristlebane - the bovoch, known across Norrath as the MEATBEAST! These rare creatures have been tamed as a mount and house pets and come in a number of shapes, sizes, and colors and can be found in the marketplace. One of the elusive pets can be earned through in-game content as well. Check out this video of Tom Tobey, Senior Animator, and Christopher Atkins, Character Artist, explaining what it's like to be a Meatbeast wrangler.

    There's a quest for the mount?
  11. Dexella Content & Social Media Manager

    No, but the Bovach Matriarch house pet is available, as is a tamable Beastlord warder. More can be found in the Look and Feel forum.

    The best thing about this video is that Tom can't keep a straight face! Every time he cracked one of those smiles that said, "I'm about to break into a fit of boyish giggles!", I had to laugh. Okay, the milk dousing was pretty good, too. My main is an avid follower of Bristlebane, and while I already have a baby pink Meatbeast calf in my home, I gotta' stick to riding the Prankster's Skystrider. Still, great video! Yay for Bristlebane enthusiasts everywhere!

    Okay all, I've been away in EQ doing some events there so I missed much of this.

    Where can I find out about this mount? (if it's an April Fool's joke let me know now) I get the pet is on SC. Thanks.

    How wierd ... I ended up having to make ANOTHER name in order to post the above. Wonky forums ...

    I think that Toby and Christopher did an amazing job on the Meatbeast mounts and plushies. So super kudos to you guys. Too bad the pricing debacle of the pink April fools one will be all that anyone remembers.

    Yes they're lots of fun. I think the Bovach Matriarchs we get from doing the catcher quests in Sinking Sands and the Enchanted Lands are really great because they can be made so huge, which is super for outdoor areas. I think the baby Bovaches are cute as well, and my little Beastlord loves her pink Bovach pet. Thanks!

    My halfling warden/armorsmith will be getting her pink bovoch house pet very soon. They are so cute and have the most adorable dance!
