A Worgen Hunter Pet? You Bet!

For those of you that don't frequent World of Raids (why don't you?!), a few days ago I reported on the fact that it's currently possible to tame an NPC in Howling Fjord, which if timed properly, will allow you to have a worgen as your pet! The news first popped up on Mania's Arcania and spread like wildfire -- taking the Hunter community by storm as everyone who hadn't completed the quest scurried to tame their very own worgen.

The NPC in question is Garwal, a quest target for Alpha Worg, which is part of a series that both Alliance and Horde players can participate in. Unfortunately if you've already completed the quest, then you won't be able to tame Garwal, but if you haven't then you can enjoy having a worgen pet, at least for now. Check out Zarhym's comment below to understand why.

As you put it Zennie, we are currently discussing this issue.

It is not intended that Garwal can be tamed while in worgen form and will be addressed via a hotfix in the near future. When we have determined how to handle situations where hunters have already tamed Garwal we will let you know.

If you haven't tamed Garwal yet, you may want to do it soon. It might be an exercise in futility in the long run, leaving you with a normal worg pet, but at least for a while you can enjoy having one of the more unique pets in the game!

What other exotic NPCs have you managed to tame on your Hunter? And what creature types do you wish Blizzard would allow to be tamed?

    I think they should allow you to tame Rams and the wild elek in nagarand the shovel tusks the demon boars should be another boar skin that's tamable.

    I remember the ghost-wolf tame back in TBC - I know at least 1 hunter still with it. I really hope they just make this a "cannot do it anymore, will let those who have it die out as we further fuck up this game and players quit"

    I tried this last night on Bronzebeard, about 3:15 am server time (PDT). He was still in worgen form when the tame stopped channeling, but when he became my pet he went back to white wolf form. Sad.

    You need to read the guide on The worgen will still be a Worg when you tame him, he changes as he's moving to your side once tamed. I tamed him last nite after 4 tries when it was taking other people 4 or 5 hours of trying. Thanx to the guide on the site.

    So Thantik, let me understand you correctly. Blizzard is ruining WoW by fixing a glitch?

    You fail sir. When / if you make a game, i am going to be the first one bitching when you want to fix a glitch in the game.

    We can have Rhinos but not Mammoths? Come on!

    Well, hunters should be able to tame all variable forms of life in World of Warcraft. This can range anywhere from the rams and mammoths to what I would personally would like to tame and use as a pet, a dragon.
