The Magenta Mana Rays are tamable. The variant is used on the Umbralfins in northwestern Mac'Aree.

Yes and no. It was the Porcupine family, but the name has been changed to Rodent.

For further reasoning: Feathermanes have feathery manes, Scalehides have scale hides, Direhorns have horns that look like they'd leave a dire wound, and so on. Calling the things Bucktooth would work in this sense.

Little late to this one....

I like this idea too. I feel Rodents may be a little... weak sounding per say. "Hang on guys, let me get my rodent to taunt that 300 foot devilsaur" :lol:

Maybe a single word name or double that refers to their craftiness and intelligence as their asset?

Glad to see we'll be getting the 'rodents'. Maybe they'll reconsider letting us tame beavers too.

Man, there's three different versions of Chitinous Cragscaler.

1. Shorter, curled horns
2. Longer, spread horns
3. OH GOD MY EYES ARE GLOWING

Haven't found any more so far. Been killing the same one over and over, as I ran out of pet space and I don't feel like hitting a stable. This will drive me nuts when I go to collect just the right Talbuk on live once I find one I'm willing to use.

Aye, I posted a list about them on the previous page. I'm not sure about the eyes, however. It could just be how its head was at the time the picture was taken. At some point in an animation.

Ah, guess I missed that. Still, so many variations for just one monster? Crazy, I say.

There are a few other Talbuks that also have variations. For example, the Chitinbuk Grazers in Mac'Aree have can be either blue or tan, and can have either of the horn styles.

The one in your 3rd option can also come like that with the spread horns. I got one of the spread horns with the extra fel glow detail in the horns.

BTW, someone's a bit sleepy/bored in that pic.

Wonderful pics, thanks! Looks like I'll have to remake all the talbuk pics in both horn types and we can begin gto sort out which are available.

Just an idea for this, but to lower your work load, you should probably just make a crop of both styles of horns and have it posted under their image. Like "Talbuks found on Argus can have two different types of horns.", and a picture of just any talbuk variant with both types of horns. Instead of making two versions of every Talbuk, a generic example image would work just as well.

I may have poked Muffinus on twitter a little too much about the marsuuls, but it got them to be tameable, so sorry, not sorry. LOL.

The only tamable one (Duskcloak Apex) is found at the entrance to the Petrified Forest in mideastern Krokuun.

They occur in a bunch of places around Argus, including not far from the start. Most of them are flagged tameable, but every time you try there's some sort of trick that breaks the tame (it says they shimmer and blend into their surroundings). We haven't yet worked out how to counter this trick yet. We've tried a lot of hunter spells and obvious things like traps that stun or freeze them, flares, campfires, but nothing works. The Panthara Apex (not too far from the start area) can be tamed easily, but I suspect it's a bug and it should have the same trick.

Does anyone know an object or toy that could mark an opponent or make them glow, and cause them to be more visible? I know there were objects in WoD that could prevent rogue stealth but their use was limited to Draenor. The turnip gun is friendly target-only. Hmmm..

Have you tried some of the flare glyphs? The ones that alter how flare looks?

Whilst it could be possible, the problem with the glyphs is that they are usually fairly expensive. Depending on the server, players would have to dish out several thousand gold in order to purchase the right one (assuming they don't have a Scribe).
