Teh Great 4.2 Rare Pet Guide

… Brought to you by Megapull, who camped these dudes for 3 straight days or something and does not know the difference between day and night atm.

UPDATES! You can find all the pets being tamed on my youtube channel. Also I wrote an NPCScan guide which can be found here.

As all of you may know, 4.2 introduced 10 rare pets, and all of them require a special method to tame. Here we will go through all of them, one by one. I recorded a quick vid aswell showing how to get to the spawnspots. You can find it at the end of the post.

Alright, let’s get this done.

The pets are: Magria, Ahnka, Ban’thalos, Kirix, Solix, Skitterflame, Anthriss, Deth’tilac, Skarr and Karkin. Let’s put them into groups.

  • Magria, Ahnka and Ban’thalos are Spirit beasts and require BM spec. They are found in Hyjal.
  • Kirix, Solix, Skitterflame and Deth’tilac are spiders. They are found in the Molten Front.
  • Solix and Skitterflame have got non elite easytame versions with the same skin. They are found in the Molten Front.
  • Skarr is a cat, shared spawn with Karkin. They are found in the Molten Front.
  • Karkin is a crab, shared spawn with Skarr. They are found in the Molten Front.

Facts: Skarr, Karkin and Deth’tilac are the most sought after pets. Skarr looks cool and is rare as hell, Karkin aswell, and Deth’tilac is the rarest and hardest to tame. Also he’s got an unique spider skin.

So, the new patch came, and I like it a lot! Though it brought many sources of frustration, like previous post says. Also, we have killed 2 bosses in 25-man Firelands, Shannox and Beth’tilac. I tell you, Shannox’s patrolling is the most annoying thing to wait for.

Also, I farmed trash inside out, and I have yet to see a single drop from it. I am 4k/12k honored…

The new zone is awesome, somewhere to PVP finally :)

………………………. (4.2 New challenge tame – Server first? Not.)

Ok, I was the first hunter on the server to tame a rare pet in the new daily quest zone. NOT. I was the first to find Skitterflame though, but an alliance hunter came and killed it at the last seconds of the taming process.

Also we killed 2 bosses in the firelands but I’m gonna write about it at the morning because now I’m very very pissed. How can a hunter be such a prick? Can’t believe this.

EDIT: Same happened with Karkin at the morning… Now I’m not too happy.

8 new rare pets in 4.2!

Pure awesomeness!

8 new rare tamable beasts have been added, each of which provides a unique taming challenge. Will you be the first hunter to tame Deth’tilac, the rarest and most powerful of them all? Players will need to progress through the Hyjal Regrowth and Molten Front daily questing areas in order to unlock access to the full gamut of taming challenges.

That means that the beasts will be in a phased zone I guess. Why is Deth’tilac the most powerful? Because it will be damn hard to tame him. He’s got a buff which protects him from being tamed when not on low hp. But he also has 38 745 000 HP. Also he has got an ability what instantly kills a player but it costs him 10% HP. I think the time has come again to bring our friends for a taming process.

Ban’thalos, Anhka, Magria, Solix, Kirix, Anthriss, Deth’tilac and Skitterflame. Gotta catch’em all.
