Experiencing God Mode

It’s been a really long time since I routinely paid careful attention to patch notes and things like that, so somewhere along the way I missed the bit about level scaling in lower level pvp. Many of you probably knew this, but I just discovered it tonight. What you may not know, however, is that if you’re toggling back and …

The Last of Us

My second time queueing for this instance and I won. My orc out-gears Garwulf 708 to 702, but the best I’ve managed on him is 3rd place. It must be the transmog. Folks were scared, I know it. No one, I mean…NO ONE wants the business end of my crossbow. I would also like to thank all of the Death …

Taming Ban’thalos in Legion

Post has been updated to reflect the hunter changes in Legion. The same basic strategy as before holds true, but since we no longer have Distracting Shot, we’ll use Concussive Shot to pull Ban’thalos instead.


Taming Ban’thalos has always been a bit of a challenge. He spawns up in the sky above the Sanctuary of Malorne, so you need to be on a flying mount to engage him. Second, he’s neutral, so you need to get his attention somehow. Third, you need to not die from fall damage once you do get his attention.

At level 100, he poses another interesting challenge. How do you aggro him without killing him?

Back in Cataclysm, the taming challenge involved a strategy which was basically: tag Ban’thalos by attacking him, then tame him without dying. At level 100, however, this strat no longer works because even if you take off all of your gear and punch him, there’s a chance that could still kill him. Instead, you need to use Concussive Shot an ability which a lot of hunters may not even have on their action bars…Distracting Shot. This shot will cause Ban’thalos to get angry with you while not damaging him.

How to Tame Ban’thalos at Level 100

This process is surprisingly easy once you know what to do.

Taming Gara

I know I’m a little late to the party here, but I gotta say…I really enjoyed the Gara taming adventure. I had so much fun with it, I put together a map with some helpful tips so that hunters who still desire to add this coveted Spirit Beast to their stable might have an easier go of it. I’ll stop …
