Re: Compiling a database of pets that retain their names after taming

Sandclaw Stoneshell now retains its name when tamed. Just found out when helping someone with their gem collection.

Re: Zhao-Ren

I can tame him just fine on my neutral pandaren. Did you;
1) Learn the tome to tame cloud serpents on any character that is exalted with Order of the Cloud Serpents?
2) Have an empty pet slot with you?
3) Pull Zhao-Ren and attempt to tame as it flies towards you (circling the fireworks barrels)?

Re: Shadowlands Alpha/Beta Beast Thread

Last week, we got confirmation that the Massive Ik'thik Kunchong and the Ik'thik Colossus are tameable last week on beta and this week on live, but I don't see another fun thing posted. The Ik'thik Colossus has creepy whispering (or muffled screaming?) when it's idle. I compared it to Akkolon, anoth...

Re: Compiling a database of pets that retain their names after taming

I think it's safe to say that any quest-specific enemy that has the quest marker on its portrait keeps its name. As Oscar points out, all six are quest mobs, and they kept their names. Of course, checking unchecked mobs still helps, but those seem to be part of a pattern (that I like).

Re: Shadowlands Alpha/Beta Beast Thread

N'lyeth can be done like so; 1. find a group doing it where players of both factions are on the same realm (hardest part) 2. Opposing faction players get naked, let you kill them 3. You tag one, drop group, then kill a few (You won't phase back to your realm immediately, but you may need to be reinv...

Re: Shadowlands Alpha/Beta Beast Thread

Credit goes to Mozelle on discord for being the first to (publicly) prove that Ivory Cloud Serpent is tameable! You want to sit on the top of the gate bordering Dread Wastes to be able to tame it. You also need to have the N'lyeth toy so that you can aggro it.

Re: Compiling a database of pets that retain their names after taming

You left halcyon there. That was one I checked and confirmed as not keeping its name. Otherwise, the work continues!

Re: Shadowlands Alpha/Beta Beast Thread

While checking pets for names, Snowblind in Winterspring has an odd feature. When it's summoned, either as an NPC or as a pet, it comes out curled up like an embryo in an egg. It unfolds and takes the normal gryphon animations. Recording software's a bit uncooperative today, so just take my word and...

Re: Compiling a database of pets that retain their names after taming

I've checked Eastern Kingdoms, Eastern Kingdoms dungeons and raids, Kalimdor, Kalimdor dungeons and raids, Outland, Outland dungeons, Tiragarde Sound (with N'lyeth). Couldn't do some of them for various reasons, so someone else has to check those. Confirmed to keep name after pre-patch: - Bach'lor -...

Re: Shadowlands Alpha/Beta Beast Thread

I'm going through as many of those as I can on live today. So far, I can confirm the following do not retain names: Goldie, Korthos, Magoo, Mara, Rose, Scout.

Re: Shadowlands Alpha/Beta Beast Thread

Testing Akkolon right now. It shows tameable, and tame beast works, but IDIOTIC NPCs stand right where it spawns, and you can't take aggro. I've tried trapping and scaring it, but the NPCs are the dumbest of the bunch I've ever seen. They keep attacking it no matter what. You can't take aggro, but i...

Re: Shadowlands Alpha/Beta Beast Thread

Managed to grind my way to the quests that let you see the green kunchong. They're quite noisy too. Lots of soft crunching and similar noises.

Re: Shadowlands Alpha/Beta Beast Thread

Ultra minor and not as kickass as that sweet gold maw rat, but this NPC retains its name when tamed. It wasn't listed, but as I'm doing the quests to unlock the Massive Ik'thik Kunchong, I saw this and found that it kept its name when tamed.

Can confirm that Luk'hok keeps its name when tamed.
Great work! Thanks :) I've updated it. I could never find Luk'hok up on the Beta realm to test it.

Does it also make sounds when clicked?
A bit late, but no. It does not make any sound when clicked.

You have to have it yourself. If you go join the secret finders' discord, they were doing it for a while. I'm sure some folks are around to help.

Re: Shadowlands Alpha/Beta Beast Thread

With the advent of the Rajani Warserpent find, I've been looking at anything and everything I can for possible fun additions. While not amazing, the toy "N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth" allows you to tame Pack Mule on Alliance, so you don't have to do the Freckles roulette for the short maned donkey look...
