Cannot be tamed (Oddity)

  • Hydras (Bellowing Roar)Fi,M

Note: Ghost Hydra could be tamed on retail as a Crocolisks due to a bug. In Cata Hydras where changed to there own pet family in the ferocity tree. However no known Hydras are tamable today so only people who got the Ghost Hydra before Cata have them and none are known to exist as pets on Molten-wow. Also I feel I should note that if this pet could have been included as a tamable pet on Molten’s cataclysm servers, it would have raised our pet family count to 38.

The Ultimate Post about Pets

One of the most asked questions about the hunter class that I’ve seen is the question on Pets. Hunters have the widest variety and choices of pets than Warlocks and Death Knights Combined. (Honestly who here really wants to only have five pets that every other Hunter has regardless of Spec?) Pets also provide us with endless hours of fun hunting rare pets. True, some hate hunting rares but I myself am an avid pet hunter and have personally caught Loque’nahak, Skoll, Gondria, King Krush, Aotona, Sambas, Terrorpene, Ghostcrawler, and many others that I’ve encountered in my days.

The main question that this wide variety, and the only problem with having such a wide variety of pets is How do I pick which pet will work for me? Well, to start figuring out which one is best, we need to do something we always have to do when you read my guides: Understand the question being asked before answering the question. 

The basics of pets are actually just this, basic. Pets have three talent trees that they use, just like we do. It’s just that instead of talent trees, they are called types. These types are as follows: Ferocity – damage, Cunning – Versatility, and Tenacity – Soloing/Survivability. They are called types because each pet only has one of these talent trees. Wolves are Ferocity, Turtles are Tenacity, and Spiders are Cunning. It’s as simple as that.
