Sha Possessed Hunter Pet Glitch - Info Needed

Unread post by Lazurianis » Tue Jul 30, 2013 10:04 am

Greetings everyone, there is a buffed called Sha Possessed in the game, however I am not sure how it is 'acquired' per se.
Wowhead Link -- http://www.wowhead.com/spell=120398

I have seen a handful of hunters with their hunter pets having this buff, however, I am not sure how it is buffed onto the pet or even what NPC/Item it comes from.

Any information helps, thank you.

Back in early 5.1, it was possible to tame all "buff pets" again by simultaneously killing, reviving, and taming a wild beast. While this could include those pets with buffs that actually boost their stats, we Petopians weren't fools and only tamed those with appearance buffs.
Some sha-infested beasts lost their effects on death, others didn't.

Ik'Thik Terrorclaw
Sha-Infested Prowler

Those were the ones I managed to tame, although there were a few others. Eventually, people on other forums who wished to exploit the game started taming those beasts with real buffs. Some diabolical individuals were even plotting to tame the elite spiders of the Molten Front, overpowered buffs and all. Blizzard had to put an end to it before these exploiting hunters grew too powerful, and the method of taming these glitched pets was patched once and for all.

Some believe that there may come another way to tame these elusive and interesting creatures. But that day has not yet come.

speaking of this, and i am glad this is up because i was going to ask this about those pets ....
the ones that were 'temporary' buffs on pets .. like the copycat spirit wolves from ashen vale
did blizz allow them to keep the change at all upon death while on or in your active stable slot?
i ask this because before the fix(es) i got one of those wolves along with on of the terrokar moths and i saw a 'buff' icon on the wolf that was never there before when id take him out and pat him on the head to say he was a good boy and give him a scooby snax. noticed it today for the first time.
i sure as hell wouldnt want to lose him in my adventures and i am scared to ask a GM cause i dont want em taken away or the inability to have him restored upon some unforseen stupidity ( or experimentation) on my part.
is there a verdict on that for those who may have any insider tips?
and any idea if i could get a temp buff pet i had could be restored with his temp buff from long ago that lost it on death and i abandoned him because of that?

It functions like the real NPC, if it dies with the buff and loses it, then that is how your pet will react.

In your questions regarding the Spirit Wolf copy cat, yes, it will lose the buff it dies, and yes you can have any pet restored, provide an ID from Wowhead and they will restore it.

But be mindful that Blizzard probably will not restore you pet with the buff. That needs to be made very clear. You'll get the pet back but the buff .............. not likely. Some have gotten very lucky most have not.
