Openly admitting you look for exploits isn't really the best idea ._. Especially if you've posted any of your character names on these forums. Blizzard has a knack for finding information they need for a ban.

Siggy under construction!

OK so heres my theory based on a few unexplained items/npcs I found...

We stumble upon a hungry wolf (http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=90427/hungry-wolf), and we're like "Oh hey, I happen to have this partially digested orc arm (http://ptr.wowhead.com/item=127682/part ... ed-orc-arm) in my bag, here wolfie, you can eat this.

So he eats it and turns into Shadowmoon Wolf (http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=90502/shadowmoon-wolf) and he's still hostile because we just fed him a partially digested orc arm. Then Dan, Lord of Sass (no link) appears and is like "I want this one for my collection." and he takes the wolf into the Felblight where the wolf becomes a Felbound wolf, and finally we have to go smack Dan around until Gara, I mean Felbound Wolf, is tameable.

OK thats dumb, but those NPCs are suspicious to me, and added in 6.2....

There is an alter near the fel wolves. Two trays on it, one with some fruits or something, one empty, and some scrolls and a book nearby (nothing interactable though).
Is it just me who noticed that?

PhoenixV5 and I tried that, Cernunnos.

We're currently sitting at the fel wolf area, trying a few things.

I found something interesting while browsing Wowhead today.

Vial of Fel Cleansing

Spell version seems to allow taming of the Felbound Wolf for a minute. Sadly this is very imprecise, but it will hopefully give you people some ideas.

Well I think we can safely assume that the Fel wolf is definitely this mystery beast going off of that vial. But how to find said vial.. hm.. Kill and loot everything? :P

Woot! I was right. Now if only I actually had a PTR account...

PS: a little disappointed this is the tame, since it's "just" a green wolf and this was already semi-discovered.

Yeah, I was hoping for a Pterrorwing, a Fel raven or something else with a completely new model. Still, its a neat mechanic for taming a pet.

Now to find the source.

Surprised it hasn't been reported yet as it's obviously been in the PTR since the beginning (it has a comment from April).

Another wolf? Boring... Maybe something interesting will happen to the model when you tame it, idk. Either way, kind of disappointed. Expected something more interesting. Still cool though, I suppose.

I've wanted a Fel Wolf ever since they appeared in SMV in the beta! Also, it's neat that it's a regular wolf so MM/SV can use it. I am a fan of wolf pets though, so maybe a little biased. :mrgreen:

Now who's going to find the vial?

Now THAT makes me very happy! I'll definitely be going for one on my Undead MM Hunter when I can. :D

I was really worried that whatever Fel Wolf becomes tameable would just be a different-colored Gara.

Biased indeed :P

Just seemed like it'd be awesome with the contest and all.

Yeah. As always, I don't want to be ungrateful, but with Gara already being available, it's not really that exciting to me. Especially being that it's another wolf. Fun for those who care, though.



I was just hoping for something like the alternative Rylak skin, or whatever.

Yeah I was hoping for a fel hydra or that unused rylak skin that's been kicking around the database since beta.

Since this is hyped up to be a big deal, I'm going to assume this isn't something rather... unextraordinary, like "A brown pack clefthoof that keeps its packs when tamed!!"

So: Fel Ravens? Frogs? Pythons?


Keep in mind it could also be an aberration or elemental or something that reverts to beast status after a special action that we must take to tame it.


EDIT:


!!!! Likely Candidate !!!!
Felbound Wolf <--- This version is an aberration (green fire wolf)
Felbound Wolf <--- This version is a tamable beast.

Considering all the talk of this being a "special tame" where you have to do something before taming, there might be a special action to trigger this fel wolf's tamability.


Frogs

http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=91921/wyrmple (Stationary purple rockworm)
http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=95577/void-tendril
That tamable version is exactly what I found when having a look on the ptr data, which made me think I'd found it.

It seems to be a kill objective of a garrison quest concerning the assault on the shanaar temple, so maybe the vial of Fel cleansing is associated with that somehow?

But yeah, if it is, another wolf reskin?

:(

Apparently, aside from the skin/texture, that Rylak has been removed. I have no clue why. It just boggles the mind. An unique, good looking model that lots of people have expressed interest in already, and they don't do anything with it.

Can't keep my eyes open anymore. Been just about everywhere in Tanaan, killed so many mobs it's unreal, and not a clue where we go from here.
