Taming of the Beasts: Patch 4.2 Hunter Pet Taming Challenge Gallery


Major props to Dashkz of Drakkari for rounding up 7 of the new rares in under two days! Dashkz managed to tame all of the rare lava spiders, plus Skarr and Karkin — all within about 36 hours!

Like… holy s**t… that’s freaking amazing! Not to mention, Drakkari is a medium pop., PvP server.

I’ve received plenty of screenshots at this point, so please refer to the forums for any additional screenshot postings or taming tales.

Thanks everyone for sending in so many wonderful pics, along with your great stories and helpful tips!
