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…

    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 😉

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

  7. Alunaria 5 years agoJul 02, 2017 at 4:45 pm

    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!

    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 5 years agoJul 05, 2017 at 11:15 am

    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 5 years agoJul 05, 2017 at 4:56 pm

    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 5 years agoJul 06, 2017 at 7:50 am

    That would be awesome ^^

  13. Alunaria 5 years agoJul 08, 2017 at 10:31 pm

    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 5 years agoJul 09, 2017 at 2:07 pm

    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 5 years agoJul 09, 2017 at 7:01 pm

    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 5 years agoJul 14, 2017 at 7:24 pm

    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 😉
