No way man… he looks too badass and he’s my only crab pet. 😉

On my way to grab Karkin, NPCScan went off a second time, signaling the presence of Skitterflame. After taming Karkin, I headed over to Skitterflame’s spawn area and sure enough… she was soaking her eight legs in some lava just waitin’ for me. 🙂

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.

Here are some nice shots of Skarr sent in by Zanbon of Ner’zhul.


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!

Two New Rare Hunter Pets Found on Patch 4.2 PTR

See my Patch 4.2 Rare Pet Briefing Post for an updated guide on how to tame Skarr & Karkin, as well as the other 8 Patch 4.2 Taming Challenge pets.

There have been two more rare beasts spotted in the Molten Front. Thanks to lawman’s tip, I happened upon some valuable pet info over at the Petopia forums.

Neither of these two new pets are exotic, so hunters of all specs will be able to tame them. One is ferocity and the other is tenacity. Both of them, as far as I know for right now, have unique skins — and badass ones at that. 😉

Hold on to your hats folks, because these two pets are both pretty awesome…
