While running around Shadowmoon Village today I noticed a big black Snarler-like wolf named Detrafila over by the Stable Master. Detrafila is level 60 and friendly to the Horde. Beast Lore says he can be tamed (although he has no skills), but since he displays as Gedrah’s Pet I assumed he probably couldn’t. But I am slowly adding untameable beasts to Petopia, so I logged my level 70 pre-made Alliance hunter into the PTR to check.
And lo and behold, I was able to start a tame! So this looks like another case of creature with a <Pet> title who isn’t truly the summoned pet of an NPC. Except … well, I died before the tame completed. Detrafila is surrounded by level 70 Horde NPCs, after all, and attacking them tends to bring the players to their rescue. And I’m just no good at that sort of thing.
So my challenge to you is this: If you tame Detrafila and send me a screenshot either confirming that he can be tamed, or showing the error message you get when it fails, I will be exceedingly thankful for your help. If you are the first person to send me a screenshot, I will make a big deal about it and post your screenshot on this blog with many accolades. *grin*
Edit: Two brave and intrepid hunters have completed this challenge! Check out the pics!
