NOTE: As of the 10/24 PTR patch, this bear can no longer be tamed.
Just a few hours ago, Mugungo sent me a screenshot of a level 70 elite bear in Zul’Aman. (And I really hope he doesn’t mind if I post it because I haven’t been able to get back in touch with him yet!) Beast Lore in the screenshot says that the bear is tameable, but more exciting than that — it appears to be a new model! In fact, the Amani Bear hunter pet looks just like the screenshots I’ve seen of the new armored bear mount.
I thought perhaps I was mistaken — I’m rather surprised that Blizzard would use a mount model for a pet – but then Replicant posted a comment that he saw a hunter with this armored pet on the PTR and it does look just like the mount. Now I can’t wait to see it for myself!
In other pet news, Mugungo also sent a screenshot of a level 70 Amani Lynx Cub (which despite the name looks to have a standard mountain lion appearance) and Replicant’s source mentions tameable crocolisks as well.
If you hear more about tameable creatures in Zul’Aman, please let me know!
Edit: More great info from Mugungo:
I have tamed the bear and let me tell you it is not a peace of cake to get to. It is worth every penny of repair bill however, as this pet rivals the amount of tells we used to get about the rfk armored boars.
A “quick” guide to getting to bear
First of all, when you walk in you will see a guy standing by big wooden doors. talk to him then get ready to fd because a ton of trolls will agro and run in to room. When they reset (you may have to die to get them to reset as they killed me first time) get your pet out. Make sure it is a trash pet. Send your pet at the eltie troll on the right and soon as he agros it run and get as far down stairs as you can and fd. Then soon as the non elite trolls run up stairs, set a frost trap down and run like heck for the middle of the area, on a little island surrounded by water and keep running till you can fd again. DO NOT GET BACK UP they will still come to you. you must wait for them to reset to stand up again. Now, when facing the entrence you should see a path to your left with a pat on it. turn on track beasts and run along path till you see bear boss and on your left will be the bears. stick to wall along left where you can still see bears, and you should not agro them. I have not tested it to be sure but you may be able to solo tame a bear as sometiems the bear groups walk very far away from eachother, however to be safe, try and bring a freind. Set a frost trap and begin taming. Also you can manage to tame 2 elites(same trick works with bloodseeker bats in zg) by freezing one and fearing the other then taming the frozen one. This will sometimes work if you can survive a couple shots from an angry bear, or if you have imp traps. And vuala you have your bear!
