We're up to almost 50 worgs, maybe more, and the macro isn't working; it literally abandons the pet. Re logging does nothing; it's still an empty slot.

ETA; We've gone through a good 60 - 70 worgs, we're giving up. At least for now.

To mis-quote Ookla, that's a lot of worgs.

We completely wiped out all of the worgs. Three times.

Long time reader, first time poster (yay, radioshow-references <3 ) and I had a question about this macro and "The Lone Hunter".

I've been trying for a few hours to tame this wolf now and always seem to fail at it.

Is there a specific second I need to spam the macro, or is it just one click?

Could really use some help :(

EDIT: I'm only a level 42, so I can't really kill him while taming either, but I know there is a method which involves that.

Well, until we get a report of a successful tame, it's uncertain whether or not this is really possible anymore. It did take both me and my friend a lot of tries back when we did these tames, but never spent hours trying before succeeding.

No clue if this will help with the actual Oil Wolf tame, but I was having problems with the pink bear til I realized something... so let me explain as simply as I can...

(PRE-STEP READINESS) You need TWO open slots in your Call Pet thingie. (not one... but two empty slots)

First, (STEP ONE) tame one of the beasts just like you would anything else, and then dismiss it. The Oil will go away once tamed, and dismissing it will throw it into your non-active pets.

Now you should have one empty slot left.

This is where magic could happen... (Step TWO) Start taming the beast and when you have about 2sec left on Tame Beast start cramming on the PetAbandon macro as fast as you can... the Wolf will be tamed and abandoned pretty much instantly.

Now, DO NOT LOG OFF YET...

(STEP THREE) Go to the next Oil Wolf and Start Taming (just like you did one step above)... if it tells you that you already control a creature THEN LOG OUT and back in and call the first Oil Wolf that you tamed out... and hopefully it will be called out with an Oil slick hairdo (A.K.A. SUCCESS) ... IF it does NOT say that you control a pet already then repeat STEP TWO and so on...

DO NOT log out til it tells you that you already control a pet.

PROTIP: Do not forget to take the PetAbandon macro off of your skill bar afterwards.

Hope this helps someone, but like I said.. I do not know if it will work the same way for the Oil Wolf.. but let us know of the results.

Hmm, that's an interesting workaround. I think I may just have to test this on Shorelfon once he is high enough level (just for science, of course...)

Since I'm having no luck taming The Lone Hunter, I'll try taming him that way :)

We were trying this too, and no go. It would always start chanelling the tame without the "too many pets" message. We haven't been back since, though.

Hahah! Either I got very lucky (finally) or that version worked like a charm! So thank you very much Pent :D

Ah, nice to see that it still works! Wonder if Pent's method is really necessary or not, but as long as it works...

Lol, swordhead :D

Thanks for the info, Pent. Can anyone clarify what exactly about the mechanics of this helps? I don't see what's fixing it what with taming the other pet first, but quite a few people have said that it works!

Just went and tried the Oil Wolf with the way I posted...

I have an Oil Wolf already (named Limbo) in my stables... which is the first shot.

Then after ONE try...

and...

So, yeah...

(just tested on Burning Boars too... works fine even if you have to revive the first boar)

I just AbandonTamed Spiteflayer ( http://wow-petopia.com/look/carrionbird ... ellow.html ).
I didn't see him on the list here ( viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7093 ) if you would like to add it.

Due to the fact that it is a rare; I have not seen it again to test if the fire on his head persists after death. Nor do I want to let him die to see if it will stay.

On a side note...I lost my flaming pig due to careless Rated BG zoning. I'm gona need to get another soon.

I just got an oil-stained wolf, as Alliance, but without the quest, using the dismiss+Abandon macro technique.

Honestly did not think I'd get it. Gave up after a while and went to have a look for TLPD while I was in the area. A couple of hours later I check my pets to see if I have one suitable for a heroic random. Lo and behold, "call third stabled pet" button is there! I have no idea how soon I got the wolf or after how many attempts because I gave up due to latency (around 500 is the lowest I could get). I was disconnected due to *inactivity though so perhaps the wolf didn't show up til then?

Anyway, I'm very happy with my wolf and I'm very glad I got the chance to tame it before the opportunity was completely eliminated :) Thanks!
