Moonshadow's Tameable? ('Already Controlled' Error)

Unread post by Kurasu » Thu Sep 29, 2011 9:08 pm

This elven NPC in the Stonetalon mountains has a Nightsaber pet which originally wasn't tameable... but is now, for those who don't feel like journeying to Darkshore:

Note: that is the basic non-sabre model.

And yes, the tame is a Horde-only.

I've actually just gone to conform this....and it still said "Creature is controlled".
I'm not sure if this is to change later in the build, but as of this moment, she is not tameable

*nod* If I'm remembering correctly Moonshadow always came up as tameable, but wasn't technically due to the controlled message.

Awwww. Thanks for testing! That's one I can't test due to being Alliance. I just noticed it read 'tameable'. :)

@Xakaal; Sadly no. I tried taming him out of the blue, then killing the humanoid NPC, and then trying to tame him. Nada.

Moonshadow is already controlled. Look closer, "<Huntress Davinia's Pet>" it is saying that another hunter already controls that beast and you cannot take the beast away. Even if you attempt to kill the master. All beasts that are tamed are "Tameable" but cant because they are already tamed. That is like saying going into PVP and its okay to tame another hunters pet.

Yes, I do believe that we've reached that conclusion. Also, what's with your rude attitude against your fellow Petopians? Just because previous "tameable" mobs that were an NPC's pet were unable to be tamed doesn't mean that maybe Blizzard changed things up. That's the entire point of Petopia, for hunters to experiment with tames and discuss pets. Not get insulted by a fellow hunter...

Pro tip: If you're going to call someone out for a bad attitude, it helps for your post to have less attitude than theirs. :)

As the real discussion here ended weeks ago, I'm going to call for a thread lock.
