I cleared mythic HoV, waited for it to soft reset and the mobs are all gone. However, Fenryr is not there...I clicked "reset all instances" after the clear. Should I have not done that?

I also clicked reset all instances while waiting for my 30 minute soft reset, are you sure it was 30 minutes or longer cause if it was even bit sooner might have goofed it.

Also did you go to the right cave as mentioned in this thread?

Yes it was almost an hour and there were no mobs in the instance. I did everything right but Fenryr is nowhere to be found :( Could they have hotfixed it already??

Don't think they hotfixed it yet and having no mobs left is a good sign I think again did you go to the right cave it is the one where you finally kill him not the first time you fight him.

Bendak, thank you very much for discovering and posting this find.
I love it and my Hati has found the definitive model.

I leave you with the image of me and a friend with our wolves.

Seriously, thank you very much.

Nvm. I just went back in the instance and checked again and he was there.:) I guess it's because I was in someone else's group and the leader was a hunter also looking to tame him. So I guess he got to fenryr first and fenryr had to respawn a second time lol.

Most likely was what happened I was with another hunter and they were nice enough to let me tame it first and they waited another 30 minutes before getting theirs.

I want to take this time to say I am sorry, for what you may ask, simple I was frustrated because so many were taming Fenryr and not being a mythic runner I felt I was going to be left out as was the baby direhorn time. My hunter is only 855 and this was the first ever mythic I did before that I don't run much of anything unless I can solo it and not having great gear plus no legendries makes it harder I even asked several who made groups if I could tame her but not knowing we could tame on as many hunters in group I was declined which added to my frustration. As for getting better gear than soloing it this would just take too long cause at my pace it might as well be the end of WOW before that ever happens and so knowing this was a glitch of some sort and being a wolf lover hence the wolf at end of my name only made me want it more.

After going through it and finally being able to tame this awesome pet, Blizzard better let those who tamed it this way keep ours, I had down time just sitting in Trueshot watching her and admiring her I wanted to again say sorry.

Is there a definitive step-by-step how to do this? Reading through this, its like were learning new information?

Is it mythic only or can it be done heroic? I saw stuff about clearing, resetting, then waiting 30 minutes, but then I read stuff about a solo challenge? Just looking for clarity.

According to the devs, although unintended, they're leaving him in like that, as they think it's clever use of game mechanics. At least what was posted on page 3.

    I hope this alleviates your concerns!

Sorry couldn't help myself, feeling a little sassy today... :mrgreen:

But as Vephriel pointed out said so eloquently, this guy is obviously intended and hear to stay, just think of him like one of the raid bosses we had to wait until the next expansion to tame if your gear is not your strong point.

They are going to discuss it today, but the reset was not the intended way of doing it. It was meant to be a solo challenge. I went into mythic HoV and, solo, cleared up to Fenryr. The moment I killed Fenryr, a tamable version spawned in the back of the cave. Pretty clear that this was the intended way.

To answer your question, Wain, my group farms Heroic weekly and is starting mythic. I have checked the raid prior to killing Elisande, and after (after killing her, prior to killing Gul'dan, then checked after killing Gul'dan). I haven't seen anything in her secret room nor any else in the raid.

Wooo they didn't fix it with this mornings patch/reset. I was able to nab him with less than 3 min to spare before it reset! I'm so happy! I thought I'd missed out.

The devs did not say that, to clarify. SpiritBinder was making a joke about comparing the Grimtotem Spirit Guide response and the response about Fenryr.

Fenryr was meant to be a reward for soloing mythic HoV up to and including Fenryr. The current method Bendak found only happened because of a bug that happened with patch 7.2. This may be fixed at any time in the future, but they've told us already to not expect this method to stay. So Fenryr may return to his "solo challenge" taming soon.

I wonder if maybe it may have something to do with that world boss that spawns in NH that summons Hippogryphs. I haven't seen him in weeks, but with the new addition of 7.2, I wonder if maybe he can "summon" Elisandes Hippogryph during the battle if left up long enough?

Thanks! It'll be interesting to check again after Mythic.

I added the Petopia page for the Fenryr's look:
http://www.wow-petopia.com/look.php?id=wolfboss

I was going to add a look page for Gon (not yet sure if in-game yet) but need to get a decent image first. WMV doesn't render the spectral effects and makes it look entirely different.

I did, however, add a page for the (unused) frost version of the raptor skin, without effects. It was intended to be used with spectral effects (for Shaman summons) but actually looks quite good them and could easily be used in the game as it is:
http://www.wow-petopia.com/look.php?id=raptor2_frost

The fire and storm skins look entirely wrong without effects and probably couldn't appear in the game without them, i.e.:

Sorry for being dumb but will they take away the Pet from the people who didn't complete the ~~solo challenge~~?
Just. Forgive me for asking but I am just worried.

This has been hotfixed waited 2 hours and he never respawned.

Did the mythic run, reset the instance too yet the wolves never despawned and never spawned fenryr.

Thank you for screwing someone out of the pet for the week saying this way works but clearly doesn't work at all.

I was thinking same thing so when I logged on game first thing I saw was Fenryr still next to my main I even dismissed it then resummoned and she is still there even my Hati Fenryr is here so they are nice enough to let us keep them if we got them the other way.
