I couldn't find anything on this, and wasn't able to tame him. I accidentally killed him before I figured it out. I think MM might work due it still having disengage, which was part of the old strategy. Has anyone tamed him since the patch?

Taming Kirix shouldn't be a problem due to two of the three specs still having disengage and all three having deterrence (it's aspect of the turtle now), assuming that the stun interrupt still happens at 100.

Like Rawr said above, just start taming again after the toxin cast and you should be fine. :)

I must have just had bad timing, since I kept getting stunned before the tame finished. And then accidentally killed him. I'll try again next time he's up :oops:

If speed is a factor, then there are always the old "brute force it!" options: haste potions and bloodlust. :D

*wipes away a tear* I'm having PTR flashbacks. <3

I have 14% So, I should have been ok, then. I forgot how the tame goes and have bad timing. So, yeah. I'll get a potion and hope I can hit a button at the right time. It's sad. Back when he was current, I didn't have trouble taming him.

I didn't use any buffs, potions, nothing! I let Kirix make a pass to ensure that he was in range of my Tame Beast spell, and then on the next pass, I didn't waste time on a shot, as soon as he was in range of Tame Beast, I hit tame, and it was over before he even cast his toxin!

No knockback, no timing it right...just tame him as soon as he's close enough! As you can see in my screenshot, I just jumped down and he's standing next to me after about 25 times of trying all the out-dated methods that worked Pre-patch 5.0.4!

Sorry for necroing a thread but I am wondering how at 110 is it possible to tame this one at 100 on an alt I was lucky and got him but on my 110 main I am going after the Molten five and Kirix is always the worst one I tried aspect of turtle but he knocks me back still then does his poison stun until I feign death to break it.

Edit to add after seeing on Wowhead a video how at 110 to do it then going to same spot but having no luck I decided to strip all my gear hoping that was the problem and lo and behold was able to finally tame it.

So for any hunter out there at 110 wanting Kirix stand on the platform where there is an air current to make you jump and strip naked hit tame beast and should have a pretty green spider by your side.

All this trouble is exactly why I settled for the tiny green spiders that spawn on the other side of the Molten Front area. Its not Kirix by name but a whole heck of a lot easier lol
