I hit 10 on my new ICftB tauren hunter, and finally got my taming quests. The first 2 were quick and then I tamed a swoop. The interesting thing was that he had an innate skill.
Cool, I thought, now I don’t need to learn screech for when I tame my owl. I was about to hearth back and log for the night when I thought to check exactly what screech does. This was the tool tip:
Holy cow. An AoE stun from a pet. Needless to say I spent the full time limit trying to learn the skill… and then the other 2 charges as well. I went back to the quest-giver, expecting to have failed the quest since I no longer had a swoop pet, but he still would allow me to complete it. I debated for a second, then decided I’d rather move on and get to Teldrassil to tame an owl, than make a second attempt at learning something I couldn’t.
But this is really fascinating to me. There are 18 different beasts to tame for the level 10 quest: 3 for each of the 6 hunter starting areas. I doubt that this is the only hiccup. Anyone else found a beast durring those quests that had a skill you couldn’t learn?
List so far:
Swoop (Mulgore) – Swoop: Inflicts normal damage plus 18 to enemies in a cone in front of the caster, stunning them for 2 sec.
Barbed Crawler (Azuremyst Isle) – Thorns: 3-4 damage when hit. (I’d like a SS of the tool tip if possible.)
