If the MoP toad is a-okay in Blizzard's eyes, I think both the Dire Toad and these smaller, critter-like ones should be fair game, too.

Still hoping we get more rodents in the future.

I updated the NPC ID macros to include the pet family, which is extra useful when checking things that are currently untameable but have diets. If you need to look these macros up in the future, just check the Pet Resources forum, as I put them in a post there: http://forums.wow-petopia.com/viewtopic ... 93#p601693


The basic macro:

Code: Select all

/run print("Target NPC Family: ", UnitCreatureFamily("target"), " ID: ", strmatch(UnitGUID("target"),"-(%d*)-%x*$"))

The macro that also opens a dressing room window that shows the NPC in one of its randomly-chosen looks / colours (thanks to Xota):

Code: Select all

/run local npcid = tonumber(strmatch(UnitGUID("target"),"-(%d*)-%x*$")) print("Target NPC Family: ", UnitCreatureFamily("target"), " ID: ", npcid) ShowUIPanel(DressUpFrame) DressUpModel:SetCreature(npcid)
If the NPC can appear in multiple colours / looks, then repeatedly hitting the button for that macro will eventually reveal all of them. Note that the chance of it displaying a particular look is the same as in the game, so if an NPC colour is set to only appear rarely, say 1 in 10 times, then the same will be true of this macro. There seems to be only a few NPCs with looks that do that, though.

The Pollen-Coated Drone (https://www.wowhead.com/npc=143510/pollen-coated-drone) that has a chance to spawn from Siren's Sting when you harvest with Herbalism is untameable. (Uses the Yellow Bee model). It is a beast though. (It's not listed on the Yellow Bee Page, which is why I posted here :P)

Which is sad, I was kinda hoping it'd be a neat way to get a bee before 118 for Horde hunters.

Alas, I did not see the macro until after I had already checked. :P

Someone posted about that bee a little while ago, but I guess the post was missed.

It's there, in the untameable section, which is hidden by default :)

Thanks to the help of another player that was leveling on the Horde side, I was finally able to tame this rare silver cobra. It's only available on a horde only quest spawn.

We've had a whole (couple) thread just for helping other players tame the snake! :D Glad you managed to get some help though!

Thanks to you and Valnaaros, I added them. I got to check them out in lfr first. The beetles come in two colours: orange with blue markings, and the teal with green spots.

The wasps only seemed to be red Draenor models.

I can confirm that Jani the Loa of scavengers is tamable in Dazar'alor. Only when she pounces on you as a neutral npc called 'The Big One' before you interact with her at the trash pile and accept her first quest. So you have to be quick before she runs away! I missed my opportunity because I continued with the quest not realizing she is the only one of her kind that is tamable :( Got another 110 hunter that I'm going to try it with this evening.

Wow, that would be incredible! :D Please let us know if you have any success...do you think there's enough time to pull off a tame? Maybe with a haste potion or something.

I'd be thrilled at the prospect of taming Jani, even if I'd have to wait to do it on a different hunter.

I tried to tame Jani during the Alliance warfront campaign (Alliance has a quest equivalent in Vol'dun), and I can confirm he's flagged as tameable, but I got an error message saying "This creature is already controlled."

I would assume the same of Jani's abrupt appearance in Zuldazar, and I've been meaning to test it on one of my hunter alts.

Honestly, I doubt that color will ever become tameable unless they completely update Jani's model. (On a side note though, I'm STILL not sure how I ended up with a Carrion Bird using the Gonk model during beta).

Confirmed, Jani is also not tameable on Horde side.

Ah, thanks for confirming :)

I didn't think she was. And if she was I'd have to report it as a bug as clearly they won't want a loa to be tamed as a pet. I'll still include it as she really shouldn't even be flagged. Hopefully we'll see other purple saurids by 8.1!

I forgot about her :/ Was she considered a loa back then? Or did that bit or lore come later and they kinda forgot? :D Or maybe she's just a big spider named after Shadra ;)

Does anyone else laugh at the fact Coati is flagged tameable, despite clearly being the pet of Headhunter Lee'za?

(And yes, I know Coati is too high of a level to tame atm)

Shadra has always been a Loa, but they most likely forgot or just accidentally made her tamable.

Found a pet battle crab using the Onyx and Sapphire! One of the Trainers in Tiraguarde Sound uses it. Dunno if that was reported. I hope that doesn't mean we won't end up seeing it on a tamable mob. :<

(Also, I gotta agree. I very highly doubt any Loa were ever intended to be tameable.)
