Azuremsyt Isle: Taming the Beast pet issues
This is a hunter quest where you have to tame an NPC 17217 using an item 23896.
Two issues are present:
1.) once the mob is tamed, it just stands frozen and will not follow you as you move unless you give it any sort of a command. I've tried other hunter quest such the night elf and troll versions, and this issue doesn't happen there as in those cases pets instantly follow you once they're tamed. 2.) it has a Thorns spell (31271) which it does not use on the player once tamed, even though the spell itself is set on auto-cast.
By taynas (397 – 1·3) on 2007/04/25 (Patch 2.0.12) I found it odd that when you tame them for the quest you get a thorns like ability cast on you but if you tame normally they don't have the spell.
By muabdib (2,637 – 7·26) on 2007/07/03 (Patch 2.1.2) When you tame these guys for the hunter quest they have a 3-4 point thorn buff they share with your hunter.
When you go back to tame them after the quest they do not.
By Volcan (24,042 – 7·35·118) on 2008/10/27 (Patch 3.0.2) This pet has a special ability when tamed for the hunter quest, because using the Taming Rod does not really tame the pet. It is a bit like Enslave demon type of spell. That is the reason why it keeps it's ability it uses in the wild.
After taming it by a spell and NOT by the item, all skills are the special pet ones.
This pet uses the ability Thorns
