For more than a year, RIFT players have endured some fairly non-inspiring animal companion models. The Rogue’s Razorbeast comes to mind, especially, as does the Beastmaster Warrior’s Primal Companion. The Ranger’s pig is probably among the top 10 ugliest MMO animal companions ever, and the purple cat, well, never really seemed too ferocious, especially when paired with a geared-out level 50 Warrior. Luckily, Trion’s finally tossed pet lovers out there a bone, and has updated a few of the pet models.
This data has been recently discovered on the PTS, and as such, a release date for these models is currently unknown. So far there have been updates for all three Ranger pets, both Beastmaster pets, and both Druid faeries. The Satyr model and Mage pets have not received new models yet, although it’s completely possible that they will in the weeks to come.
