Taming Feathermanes

Last week-end, I’ve finally unlocked all artifact traits for Titanstrike. By doing so, I could buy the Tome of the Hybrid Beast from Pan the Kind Hand (the stable master from Trueshot Lodge). Upon use, it allows the player to tame Feathermanes, a family that includes hippogryphs, gryphons, owlcats, wolfhawks, and wyverns. If you want to know more about these pets, follow this link to Petopia.

Since I had already completed the quest line to obtain the Beast Master class mount, I was particularly interested in taming the brown Wolfhawk named Varoudnir. There are 3 different Wolfhawks and they are all located on the uninstanced version of the Eye of Azshara.

Each of them is located inside a cave.

Their respawn timer is between 15 and 30 minutes and they are not especially hard to tame. Now I “just” have to unlock every trait for the other Hunter artifacts, so I’ll be able to get all the color variations of the class mount to match my Wolfhawks…

Bonus objective: Guess the name I gave to my new pet. Hints in this video.

    Oh, I just adore this model, so very much.

    It’s the one mount I wish I had, too.

    I did not know how you really go about taming them as pets, and haven’t even seen them as a pet in the open world either, so thank you for highlighting that – that must be the destination of one of my next visits. 🙂

    What an excellent idea with a bonus objective!

    I shall call him Airwolf and he shall be mine and she shall be my Airwolf!
    Come heeere, Airwolf, come here, little Airwolf!

    Thanks for your comment, Alunaria 🙂

    You win! Quiet fitting for half wolf, half flying mount… 😉 I loved that TV show when I was a kid. I always dreamed that I had my own Airwolf, I guess it’s done now 😀

    And, by the way, the awesome idea of the bonus objective is all yours 🙂 So fun to do…

    Already thinking about a story… can’t wait to write this one down ^^

  5. Alunaria Jul 02, 2017

    Uuuh, I win, I win!

    Aha, aw, TV shows from when one were a kid….:) Congrats on the dream o/

    I can’t wait to hand in my quest and get my reward for winning – oh, hold on..What did I win?! :p

    Oh, I get decide it seems, as it was not specified…I know!

    I’d like to order 1 story/post of a taming adventure told through the eyes of both Sisqi and Gamrok, please 😉

  6. Gamrok Jul 02, 2017

    I can’t promise that it’ll be done tomorrow, but you got it! It’s on the list, girl 😉

  7. Alunaria Jul 02, 2017

    Oooh, “there is no hurry” 🙂 Don’t force it. All good things come to those that wait 🙂

    Deadline can be , like, in one month, so August the 2nd!

  8. Gamrok Jul 02, 2017

    Haha, it’s on 😉

    I just went to visit that Island a few days ago, thank you for the inspiration 🙂

    I got to see all three lovely feathermanes. None of them wanted to come with me though 🙁 QQ.

    And there was an Orca corpse lying at the shore…You could have warned me, ya know…More QQ.

  10. Sisqi Jul 02, 2017

    Ouch… I haven’t seen the Orca corpse T_T Sorry about that! I will be much more attentive when it comes to that from now on 😉 Now everytime I see an Orca, I’ll think about you 🙂

    What?! They didn’t want to come with you? Bad, bad wolfhawks… You probably smell too nice… Beast Masters must smell like a walking zoo so any beast must feel right at home 😉

  11. Alunaria Jul 02, 2017

    Aww, please do 🙂

    Hmmm, you might be right about that…I think I must have had a scent of burning torches and what not all over my clothes for weeks by now…

    Maybe I will run into you in game sometime, so I can admire your Feathermanes instead 🙂

  12. Sisqi Jul 02, 2017

    That would be awesome ^^

  13. Alunaria Jul 02, 2017

    Hah, what a coinsidence, guess the name of my new cloak! 😀

    …Feathermane Feather Cloak!

    (Do not worry, no Feathermanes were harmed in the process of crafting it)

  14. Sisqi Jul 02, 2017

    Aha, so you’re the one secretly stealing the feathers from my pets…. I knew it! They were starting to look a little bare…

    Congrats btw 😉 I hope it’s a good cloack ^^ Well, it has to be, right? ;p

  15. Alunaria Jul 02, 2017

    I would never! I simply collect those that fall off during…is it called shed…season…in English?

    It is a lovely lookin’ cloak, thank you 🙂 I have no clue which stats it has, that’s not important :p

    I have the new beastmaster taming option now too; thanks for the tip. I’ve not done anything.
    I’m guessing that classic taming rules apply; freeze trap now that we have it again.

  17. Gamrok Jul 02, 2017

    Hey Wrathsome, I’m glad you have it… Actually, you don’t even need a trap, they bearly do any damage at all, they’re big lovecats 😉
