Ghost Wolf


It only took:

  • All morning
  • One VERY expensive metagem (160g)
  • One piece of blue head armor to have a slot that took a metagem
  • Heavy Clefthoof leggings so that I could socket two blue gems without wiping out the +16 attack power gems on my regular legs (the proc requires more blue gems than yellow gems)
  • Drums of Battle
  • A priest to mind control the shaman and spawn the spirit wolves
  • A shammy to pop Heroism (thanks, Miz!)
  • And a macro to target the wolf and trigger Tame Beast.

All of this was necessary because Tame Beast has a twenty-second cast time, and the spirit wolf dies in seven seconds. Timing heroism with getting the gem to proc was a nightmare. We gave up and I hearthed back to Allerian before I realised that I had forgotten to use the Drums of Battle. Several flights and a boat ride later, I had my wolf.

Please don’t point out the obvious downside to all of this that this is a level 30 wolf…I just think of him as a rare vanity pet. :D

And of course, I had to make Ironforge my first stop after taming, just to pose. I never said that I was immune to the lure of epeen. lol…

    How did you level him? I’m going to keep grinding with mine (melee hunter ftw, lol), but I think it will be a slow process. I don’t want to bring him into any instances, as it wouldn’t be fair to others in the group.
