What's a Boss Tag?

Unread post by zidus6577 » Thu Nov 18, 2010 7:36 pm

I'm a new hunter and in reading about all these exciting pets I've heard people talk about pets keeping their "Boss Tag" after being tamed.

What is a "Boss Tag" and does it do anything?

Thanks

It has no actual effect, other than aesthetics. A boss tag means that your pets level will show up as ??, or a little skull. It's got no real effect.

when you tame a boss that has the skull ?? (boss) mark, you are somtimes lucky and it keeps it ^.^ dosnt do anything, kinda just somthing to show off. Makes your pet just a bit different then the rest of em. also if you tame a skull boss it will bug and say its lvl is -1 (it still gets talent points and damage scales to its real lvl though)

They've added a scorpion, and Chromaggus too, I think the one Corehound boss from MC is now tameable too.
