Gotta love the unexpected.  I’m traveling through Felwood with Siori, just upping a few pets and picking  a few herbs when I see a Tiger.  I notice it’s kind of cool looking and it turns around with flaming eyes.

Courtesy of Petopia…does not properly capture the eye flame animation.

Holy shit.  I have to have this cat.  How have I never seen this cat before?  It’s a fairly low rare…screw it.  Go get Liouxpold.  Oh goodie.  He’s hearthed in Pandaria…well, quick Darnassus port, hop the ocean via bird and then fly from Darkshore into Felwood where (Illidan bless TitanPanel and coords) I find the cat again easy.


Begin taming.

Duskcoat drops dead.


Oh you stupid cat!  How did I forget to dismiss you?

Well, since he’s now gone, let’s look up the details on Duskcoat.  Oh, look at that…I’ve never heard of him because he was only added in 5.1 and speculation is a 28-hr respnawn timer.

edit: Wake up, log on…bam.

    Awwwww, I feel your pain. The exact same thing happened to me the first time I tried taming Gib the Banana-Hoarder. I was SO mad at myself.

    28 hr respawn time though? That sounds pretty high. I think 3-5 is more what you’d be looking at.

      I agree…but I’ve seen stranger…lol

    Heya JD,

    I think that’s the exact same skin that’s on a bunch of the cats prowling up in Northrend in the SE and SCentral Zul’Durak area. I hope that helps and yep that bites! I did the same thing with “Olm the wise” in the Northern part of Felwood too on my hunter at one time before they changed the skin. The new skin for that owl is pretty cool too 🙂 It’s like an ice eagle!

      The ones in Northrend have more of a pink colour to their eyes and it doesn’t seem as “flame” based. I’m a stickler for the details, lol.

    The things we do while trying to tame those rares. GL getting him again

    With CRZ I wouldn’t be surprised if that spawn timer is skewed. Hope you find him again soon.

    Oh nooo … but forgive me for feeling a bit better to learn I’m not the only one who’s done that.

    • JD Kenada January 18, 2013 / 7:54 am

      Oh, I like to think we’ve ALL done that at least once. Save for the pros, of course.

  6. Gwennie January 18, 2013 / 7:27 am

    Exactly…I completely know that frustration as I have definitely done that more than once on Mairwenn *chuckles* & here’s hoping you have better luck next time

      Have a snooze and wake up to a chance to get it right 🙂

    Ooh a pretty cat! (and an even nicer bow!). Sadly my stables are full and really need a clear out 😥

    • JD Kenada January 18, 2013 / 3:57 pm

      The outfit (which can also be seen on Liouxpold in the armory) is built around the Betrayer’s Bow. Lioux was a crossbow guy until that bad boy dropped. Now I just hope Ulduar gives him the matching shoulders when the Alliance LBR’s through there later this month.

      Oh, and try having five Hunters, none of whom are BM…and he’s the ONLY one that has pet variety. As I said to the Mrs…I almost need to roll another Hunter just to have one who’s Beast Mastery and can tame some of the fun stuff.

      • Jojo January 20, 2013 / 10:41 am

        I think it’s one of the best bows around and my bow of choice. I’m working on getting a load of gear to transmog to match it currently. I agree – you need to have a BM spec just for the cool pets. It’s the only reason I have BM 🙂

  8. Chatmay January 18, 2013 / 4:08 pm

    My hunter didn’t have BM as offspec until I realized as I hit tame on the invisible jumongar that I got Hodir rep for that it was BM only. lol. I am confused though- are you saying the pet you were taming dropped dead or the one you had before the tame dropped dead?

    • JD Kenada January 18, 2013 / 5:05 pm

      The one I was trying to tame dropped because I forgot to dismiss my previous pet. Then this morning, I logged onto Liouxpold (having left him at the spawn location) and he was there again for me to tame properly. 🙂

    Woot Gratz on your new hunter pet. He is a beauty!

    • JD Kenada January 18, 2013 / 8:12 pm

      Thanks! Now to decide on a name….
