Have a Horde hunter on my server who's been going around taming multiples of Banny,Maggie and Annie to stop other hunters from taming them after they've died a couple of times attempting to tame the shiny new spirit beasties.Seriously?! What the hell?!

I have a horde friend that has two Skarrs for some reason. He claims one is for pvp, but yeah, I don't think so. He just tamed it, in my opinion, to stop the alliance hunters trying. He knew exactly how to tame Skarr and didn't fail once he'd started the tame. Its really not a nice thing to do, tame multiples of mobs. I've THOUGHT of taming multiple Deths when I couldn't find him a home after 2 hours, but he's too wanted to stay untamed for much longer. I figured SOMEONE will want the pretty purple spider and I will likely just abandon him eventually if I had two.

I will say I did tame two red Madexxes, just because literally no one wanted him and I felt sorry for it. I named it Noonetamedme and still have it in my stables today! He's getting love from Loki (Kirix).

.....I'm completely disgusted and also amused by a drama I just saw unfold around Skarr...I go up to turn in a daily I forgot, when I see a red dot. I figure it's Karkin again since I've seen Skarr earlier, but it's Skarr once more. I don't do much, I simply watch and wait for someone to come tame him. Another hunter shows up and I realise it's the hunter I've seen on that ledge since weeks back. I can see her panic, being all twitchy and fumbly, so I calmly say "Stand on the ledge in front of him, cast a tame, shoot your silencing shot and begin the tame and you will be just fine :)". She jumps to the ledge, does a perfect pull and as the taming bar is RIGHT at the very last nanosecond, it's interrupted and Skarr turns his attention elsewhere. I look, and I see a Horde hunter (belf) WITH SKARR standing on a ledge above, shooting and doing emotes like /rofl, /pity and /spit at the Alliance hunter. He feigns and Skarr returns to his spot, and as it turns out, the griefer then falls off the ledge and dies. I tell the Alliance hunter to hurry up! And again she does a perfect pull and is so close to tame...then an Orc turns up, not a hunter but a paladin from the same guild as the belf.

He interrupts the tame and does the same sort of emoting. By now I can sense the Alliance hunter is close to a breakdown, she asks me "What can I do?? They're going to keep this up or kill him!!". Joy of joys, I then see that the Orc...is..in..pvp..probably hoping for the Alliance hunter to attack him, and the belf hunter is not back yet. I jump to the firm ledge, I go into camo and begin hardcasting Aimed since I clearly see that the Orc has no pvp gear. I tell the dear Alliance hunter to start the taming process the second I attack the orc. She gets into position, and when ready (the Orc is just standing and waiting for another shot at interrupting the tame, oblivious to me since I've been behind the pillars and he's obviously an idiot so he just didn't notice me. One macro, 2 Arcane, 1 Kill Command and 2 Kill Shots to his green face, and he's dead. And what do you know...SHE GOT THE TAME!!!!!!!!!! Seriously....it's times like these that I feel this game still has potential. I've never seen anyone so genuinly happy and grateful! The Orc and belf came back, I only did one emote to them and that emote, was /Smile.

It had a happy ending, but the fact that these two players went out of their way to grief a single player like that just makes me wanna punch something. And what can the person being griefed do about it at that moment? Nothing...

Blizzard has to learn this lesson....Make HUNTER challenge tames for HUNTERS only, and make tag = nobody else can attack or in any way interract with the beast unless the other hunter dies or gives up! If you add new challenge tames in the same fashion as the ones in this patch, you will push otherwise happy players away!

Rorcanna: I agree very much, but then again, I'd say this: you made these beasts for HUNTERS why are you letting NON hunters kill/stop HUNTERS from taming these pets. Blizzard, please change this or I stop paying 15 USD a month for this game.

Youre on my server. :(

Ive been camping Skarr for THREE DAYS. The ONE time I saw him...well, see my post in this thread. I have YET to see him since. I do know an Orc hunter was looking for Karkin, and he got him last night I think, and another Nelf was looking for both of them, and got Skarr this morning, and Karkin this afternoon.

Right now, Im waiting for the repop of SOMETHING. Ive seen Skitter TWICE today, Deth once, and Karkin once. ANd was told of a Skarr before I logged on.

I just failed at taming skitterflame.
He died.

But I'm happier now...after hunting and finding some old rares, including Olm and Shadowclaw.

An Alliance hunter on my server has two Skarrs. :/ I think it's kind of silly and rude, especially with at least 2-3 hunters after him nearly all the time. On one hand, I understand they hate one of the hunters camping Skarr- he's the guy who stole Deth by spamming Tame Beast. On the OTHER... there's some nice hunters waiting too. I just feel a bit ill about it. I honestly feel that if you tame it once, let others have a turn.

Just got to see another Deth die, my tag of course. I'm really not set on getting him, I just thought I'd give it a shot when he was up. And of course it was some lovely little Hordies that jumped him.

I've actually made up my mind to camp Kirix instead. I used to see him the most out of all the 4.2 spiders and it made me feel that he was unloved. So I decided I'm going to give him a home when I see him again.

The day seemed to be off to an awesome start, as a fellow hunter in Hyjal gave me a surprise Magria tame, and not an hour later I kited Solix for her and FDed to allow her to tame. :lol: How about that, Jess, -I- did the kiting for her! On the tame I'm most afraid to try myself! It went off without a hitch. We stayed in party to chat during dailies, and she was great fun to talk to.

She said the last pet she wanted was Karkin, and I offered to help if I could. I parked within tracking range of the spawn points and began checking back from my baby hunter's leveling at the top of every hour, and every half-hour. She went to SMC to RP.

Karkin spawned, and I whispered her. But in that time, another hunter came for the tame. She told me to interrupt it, take aggro, tell the other hunter to stop.

I congratulated him on his tame, trying to explain I do not steal another person's legitimate tag.

The difference in her was night and day. She snipped at a random hunter who said Karkin had just been tamed for a timer reference; and the hunter who had tamed received a lot of furious whispers. To me, she called him a "f*****g douche".

I was amazed at how grief-free the Magria and Solix tames were, and had commented to her as such before that mess. She had agreed at the time.

:s I guess the irony escaped her.

What happened to me is already a few weeks past, but if I look at my screenshots again, it still makes me cry:
It was my first (and only) sighting of Anthriss:
A Belf seemed to have tried to tame her, when a group of alliance showed up and killed her, so she couldn't tame. She made some /cry emotes at Anhtirss shoulders, but I didn't know if it would help her, if I tried to comfort her (and just stab the wound once more). You can see the pile of sceletons around her, so Anthriss seemd at least to have gotten some of them down, but yeah, didn't work out for the poor Belf.
Image

The day after Anthriss death.
I had been camping Ban'thalos for 6 hours straight with Morga my Orc and it was my third day in that stupid tree. I decide to logg over to my druid and do the dailies with him, to see something else. When I return from the molten front my NPC-Scan wents off with Banny I quickly fly over to park my druid at the statue of Malorne, but what do I see? Banny is dead. His wings spread out under a alliance warrior doing silly /lols at a horde hunter and some other alliance members fluttering around him (none of them hunters).
Image
(the druid is me)
I got so sad and angry- I wanted to kill MY druid for existing and me being so stupid to logg over to him and not camping Banny. I stopped camping Banny after this for a week, then got him with Findu by accident and a week after Findu's tame I got Morga again on the treetop and got Banny 3 days after that without being online very much.
But I still get very upset if I see one of the rares dead and it makes me really sad.
I tried to help two hunters get Deth, but both times he died. I wonder if he's somehow bugged, as we were both times only us two hunters kiting him around, and always when the other hunter tried to tame him, the taming broke as often, until he was dead. I didn't have aggro at that time, didn't shoot him or have a dot running, my pet was packed safely away and he kept running at the other hunter. But the taming always broke to early and he died.
The same thing happened with Solix: we kited him around until he was tameable, the hunter starts to tame (twice), but the cast always breaks and Solixs dies. :(

I have been camping Magria/Anhka's for the past 46+ hours now becuase some [...] Night elf Hinter decided to randomly watch my camp. Not only did he track me, he got Anhka to kill me when he spawned, so he could steal him from me. I am now, waiting again....

7/31 - 6:30am Magria (already had)
7/31 - 8:30 Ahnka stolen from me
8/1 - it's about the 12hour mark now... still waiting...

I am so furious.

oh did I mention it has just happened again!?!? This time with Ban'thalos... Seriously, if you have something tapped.... no one should be allowed to take it from you.

Where as I agree on the point you made that if you have something tagged, no one should be able to steal it from you (I've lost three Deths that were rightfully tagged by me), it pays to be informed about a tame. Saying "he got Anhka to kill me when he spawned" is kind of odd because if you're doing the challenge right, Anhka hits like a kitten. Did you have all of your armor off at the time?

I talked to ANOTHER GM, third this time, and she said they are working on it but they can't stop anyone from killing the mob if its tapped. Just taming. They are working on it, but the devs are trying to find a way to do in which the mobs are still killable if the hunters fail. I told her, just make it like a normal mob if we fail, not too hard. She was explaining lines of code, blahblah....zzzzz. Thats when I said thanks for the help, bye.

I do agree mobs shouldnt be targettedable while being tamed, unfortately I doubt it will happen with it being tagged.

And Sara.. its not as easy as you think to make a mob essentially phased by others if its tagged and even then the amount of chaos that would happen is.. just no. I hope it never happens because I can see it now someone sees the mob and tags it then keeps it phased while healing themselves or just kiting it around while laughing at the hunters who are trying to tame it. Or sell the rare to the highest bidder. Though it does work if a hunter who is trying to tame it has it so noone can tag it to but essentially no matter what.. ignorant people are ignorant. If someone sees it tagged and still are ignorant enough to either kill it or steal the tame then they will continue to find ways to be cruel to others. Im kinda sick of people saying its just a game, yes it is just a game but theres a real live human being on the other side of the screen. Just because you cant get away with stealing in real life doesnt mean you should go around and find ways to make someone elses lives miserable because "its just a game".

Oh.. and please be more respectful to the GMs, they work hard for us and cant please everyone. No matter what there will always be someone unhappy and they have to deal with enough as it is.

Deth's death again. Paid back evilly for winning two amazing pieces of hunter loot last night be watching Deth'tilac DIE. I got his tear. I was helping a draenei hunter tame him using my draenei DK and alternating ghoul/pet saccs, but she was really bad and just couldn't pull aggro off me, so I decided to let Deth kill me so she would get aggro. After I died, my rogue guildie comes up, thinks she's helping, lets Deth kill her, and boom, dead purple spider and sad hunter. Me sad draenei with a tear. She's not going to be doing any /waggle today. Just mourning over her tear.

I was almost done taming it and he pulled aggro off me. then i got aggro back stupidly and died becuase my health was low. I was naked... so I don't know.

HUNTER ONLY phasing is what I meant. I'm sorry I wasn't clear on that. No one else would be able to bring to mob down but a hunter and once the hunter entered the phase or whatever, taming would be the only way for him/her to get out of it. No killin/kiting to piss people off. The hunter would be stuck there too. Sure it might give some kicks to just kite it around and laugh and I agree with you there, but still, it beats having mobs killed in front of your face.

And I have no disrespect for GMs, just the AnswerBots they use to answer tickets. That third GM admitted that my other tickets were actually answered by BOTS! Seriously? Answer your own tickets. /facepalm

I know they got a lot on their plate, but geez. If I am reporting abuse, it shouldn't be a bot who answers my ticket, but a REAL LIVE PERSON!
