Quick update for the PetAbandon macro

#1 Unread post by kaaoru » Mon Jan 24, 2011 3:21 am

Hey there guys! I just started my hunter yesteday, and always had the curiosity as to how to get those different pets(boar in flames, oil covered worg, etc). I found the post covering the how-to here, and after about 15 tries on The Lone Hunter and on the deviate birdy(edward cullen), I found a way to make it easy to work:
1-Tame the pet you want as you would tame any other.(make sure you have an extra pet slot!)
2-Dismiss it and proceed to tame it again, this time using the macro.

I dont know if it was just luck, but I spent about an hour failing on lone hunter, and when I tried that, it worked. At the time I didnt think it was related, and proceeded to to catch the deviate bird. Again, a number of failed attempts. I decided to do what Id done on the lone hunter and BAM! It worked. Same thing with the Armored Battleboar(although this took some time to get the timing right)

So, if you are having trouble getting your pets with effects, might wanna try this out and give feedback here :)

Just mind you, if your pet dies, I think it will lose the form.

It still works long as you're not spamming it.

Since I read this thread I've been out trying to get the thistle bear. Is there any SPECIFIC point you want to hit the pet abandon macro that one time? IE just as the tame is finishing, the tame finished, or when you see the gold ETC. any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Personally, I just spam it at about 2s left on the tame. I went to get the lone hunter again(accidently hit the macro when he was out >_>), and got it on the first attempt(Tame it regularly once, dismiss(not abandon), tame it again using the macro)

Ill try to get some pics and make a guide...as soon as mages decide to port me around

it also loses it if you die while the pet is out (apparently)

i had the ghostpaw from before on a lowbie, and had him out when i made an unfortunate error in jumping distance in stonetalon. now wolf is regular and i dont wanna retame due to EULA and all that.

It's only some of the buffs that are lost on death--this bear was reported to keep theirs :)

Iirc, it was Oil-stained Wolves, Oiled Fledgelings, Consumed Thistle Bear, Armored Battleboar, The Lone Hunter & the Angered Arakkoa Protector which keep the buffs through death.

I believe we were given a response from Noah saying something to the effect that it's okay if you tame these pets so long as no one reports them and you don't try to gain anything malicious out of it. It's not something they want to be happening, but, for now, they're turning a blind eye to it.

From Noah via Wain:

- Any retained features that are actual buffs are a definite no-no. Anything that affects class balance by buffing your pet is out.
- For anything that just affects cosmetics/appearance, you have to use your best judgement. If another player could conceivably get upset because it somehow affects gameplay - making it difficult to target, obscuring vision, (maybe looking like a worgen player? ;)) etc. then the upset player could conceivably report it and the pet would most likely be taken away. It's very unlikely anyone would get banned and it wouldn't be very nice if they were. If you did get banned over a purely cosmetic buff, he said to mention it. If it's just a little blue aura or something that you use for pve or solo or wehatever, it's highly unlikely anyone will care.
