PTR 6.2 Mystery Tame Contest - SOLVED

Unread post by Mania » Fri Jun 12, 2015 11:21 am

MODERATOR EDIT: The contest has now ended! Qraljar solved the puzzle of how to tame the Felbound Wolf and his report is here. Congratulations Qraljar!


<tap tap tap>
Is this thing on? Yeah? ... Excellent. <steepling fingers>

So ... I learned something fascinating the other day. You guys have missed something - something veeeery interesting. See, there's a certain tameable beast with a cool new look on the 6.2 PTR that nobody has reported yet.

Now we could tell you what it is and how to tame it ... but we aren't going to. Instead, we're going to run a little contest with Petopia's sister site, Warcraft Mounts, sponsoring the prize. The first person to find this new tameable on the 6.2 PTR and report back with all the necessary details on how to tame it, here on this thread, will win a Corrupted Hippogryph loot code, from the good people at WootLoots.

So here's what you need to do: First, go find the beast! We're not going to give you any hints about this creature other than it's new to patch 6.2, it's not a look that has been tameable before, and it's not a simple ‘see beast, tame beast’ kind of tame. Next, get some screenshots! Post a full screenshot of you with the tamed beast on this thread, including your PTR character name and PTR realm (in the unlikely event there's a dispute and we need to get in touch with you on the PTR realm to verify the tame). Also keep in mind that in order to be eligible for the prize, you must also have an active WoW account on an EU or US server (including Oceanic and Latin America), so we can give it to you.

It's possible that someone on some other site will report the tame before one of us Petopians does. In that case, we'll have to declare the contest void and save the loot code for another day. Let's avoid that, though, by beating them to it. So go forth. minions, and tame!

Good luck!

I probably won't win at all, but that's really cool! :)



Also nice to have some sort of confirmation that there's a new tame. :)

I can't get on PTR and have shiny birdbeast, but I'm definitely going to keep an eye on this.

Which is annoying, because I know what it is, and exactly where it is.

Oooh how exciting! :D I won't participate since I am already the lucky owner of a Corrupted Hippogryph, but I can't wait to watch the contest and see the results. Best of luck everyone!

Bad timing with the announcement I guess. At the time we didn't know there'd be another PTR build quite so soon!

Someone hurry up and win the contest, I wanna know what it is! I've got the tcg mount, so I'm not gonna enter it myself (among not having an active account, I got lazy!)

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.
