Re: Blood Beast taming search

This notion may be completely off base, but I am reminded of the old vanilla quest "Dark Iron Legacy" that you could obtain from Franclorn Forgewright, at Forgewright's Tomb in Blackrock Mountain, while you were in ghost/wisp form (dead) ONLY . If you went by this tomb while alive, the ghostly quest...

Re: 8.1 Live Tames

Very enjoyable thread, Shelly. Thank you. First off, it's really great to have Ginsu (Karkin) back in his old skin again: "Guys! Guys! Break it up, already!" http://www.jerichardsonjr.info/images/Karkins_Back_121218_130648.jpg What happens when you take out two Dreamrunners at the same time: "Nanlui...

Re: Horned steed [Stag] tameability

Somber Dawn tamed on Shadow Council!

Thank you, Hunter-friendly developers for this early Christmas gift, and also for restoring my old Karkin back to a very attractive chrome-plated skin (with red gem).

Re: Updating unique and Rare skins

I am also wondering: What is the current dividing line between what is a "Rare" and what is not? This seems to have been muddied a bit since Legion, in that at least a few beasts that are listed as "Rare" seem to have rapid respawn rates, especially those Elites that are marked on your Minimap with ...

Re: Updating unique and Rare skins

Actually, it turns out there's a simple reason for it: neither of those spirit beasts is flagged as rare. They both have unique skins, so they do appear on the unique looks page , just not the unique & rare looks page. If I may, I'd like to suggest a more consistent title for this page, one that fo...

Re: Horned steed [Stag] tameability

Under the category of "Can't Let it Go": After hitting level 112+, this weekend I tried out this notion I had that the gorgeous Black w/Red Unicorn "Somber Dawn" might possibly be tamable exactly at Server Dawn / Sunrise Time (5:30 PST for all North American servers), and that the clue was in his na...

Glyph of Lesser Proportion mechanics (BfA)

Greetings, I've been experimenting with the Glyph of Lesser Proportion, with the intention of reducing the size of my big 'stompy' (Devilsaur, Corehound) or big 'flappy' (Chimaera, Classic Hippogryph) pets only. That is, I wanted the glyph to apply to specific pets only. This is NOT how the glyph wo...

Re: Great time for taming!

I went and looked for tracks and took some screenshots of Portent and Savage's tracks. Savage would be a real problem anywhere around Forest's Heart as far as contrast, but otherwise they stood out fairly well. Portent's tracks are clear, except in the sha areas. Thanks so much for the effort and g...

Re: Great time for taming!

Did you try turning off ground clutter completely to see the tracks? If you have it set high, it's probably hiding them. Displaying them shouldn't be a problem. Even my girlfriend's old potato was able to display tracks. I have ground clutter turned all the way down, but I do play visually impaired...

Re: Great time for taming!

I agree with the OP wholeheartedly. I returned to the game after a long (2012-2018) hiatus at the beginning of July, and I have had a grand time finding and re-taming all of those unique-skinned rares that I had previously let go due to stable space considerations. Now, with 60 stable slots and 5 ac...

Re: Karkin's new skin

I had feedback from Muffinus himself that it was a bug that would be addressed in a later patch. He said the same of the missing transparencies and they're already fixed. In the case of this crab there was very clearly a new skin that it was meant to be swapped to (matching file names between new a...

Re: Stupid question - pet abilities

Some pet abilities can be set to trigger automatically, when your pet has sufficient Focus. Some pet abilities have to be cast manually by the user. You will also have to pick and choose which items to place on your pet bar, and which you leave in your Spellbook pet tab. Those abilities that can be ...

Re: Some pets have unique attack speeds again -Broken Tooth

As an old vanilla WoW player and long-time BM Hunter, I tamed Broken Tooth as soon as I hit level 39 and ran with him as my primary pet for years (named Sarge). The reason for wanting his 1.0 attack speed then was that each attack had the potential to interrupt spell casting in an opponent, and sinc...

I'd really love to have a Red Madexx of my very own, however. I feel like I'm giving away rare scorpions like I've got a box of kittens!

Re: Need help finding a rare? Check here first!

If you're looking for a unique-skinned rare Tenacity pet to take you through the Outlands whilst leveling 58-68, then I'd go with one of the Azeroth ones you can tame: the Silithid Harvester (beetle), Uhk'loc (gorilla), or Grubthor (worm)...or all three for variety. Worms are exotics, so you can't ...
