I'm so happy right now!
I spent the better part of the day farming talbuks in MacAree and ended up with eight pieces in total. I made a macro for targeting and taming because I tend to forget where Tame Beast is on my bars whenever I'm trying to tame something I really want, and I was paranoid about botching up these attempts, hence why I got backup meat. I went to where one of the shadowfangs was sleeping, did the steps and hit my target/tame macro as soon as I heard the meat land... it worked on my first try. I was shaking so hard that it took me a few minutes to get my bearings back, so I named my new buddy and spent a couple of minutes farming talbuks up till I got to Wakener's Enclave where I got my second kitty, also with only one meat even though my macro botched because I'd forgotten to switch the mob names, whoops.
But here's my new buddies, meet Lumineux
