|Pet family||Core hound|
- At the time when Burning Crusade was released, the Kurken was tameable, but this was soon fixed. In the "Echoes of Doom" patch, the Kurken was made tameable once again, this time as a member of the "core hound" exotic pet family. He requires to capture, only available to Beast Mastery hunters.
Due to its identical appearance and close proximity (being in Northern Kalimdor), it is possible that the Kurken is related to the demigod Omen in some way. In saying that, they might simply share the same model.
- Patch 2.0.3 (2007-01-09): Added.
