Bound to get nerfed / untameble soon

No point for that imo, wolves are crappy pets and only reason to have it would be that it looks "cool"

Coolness goes a long way, though.

And maybe somewhere down the road Blizzard stops hating wolves? ;)

Bah, wolves are the best.

Even if not as a dps/whatever pet :(

Having leveled two pets from around 20 to 70 (not while leveling myself), I wouldn't really want to do it again. Though supposedly pet leveling is faster in next patch.

But... I probably would get this IF we got even one more stable slot. What I really don't want to do is getting rid of one of the pets I have. They really should redo the stables to something like having a slot for every pet type for example (more stuff to do for the obsessive-compulsive).

For those who don't know, Blizzard have stated the following

Even if players weren't supposed to tame Grimtotem Spirit Guides in the first place, the devs agreed that this is a fun use of an in-game mechanics and they therefore have no plans to "fix" the issue.

You need a priest who can mindcontrol, a shaman with heroism and if possible have the gem thingy that on proc can increase your casting speed.

Combine all these things and you should have a timed and uber fast taming session, followed by a cool new pet :)

I know ofc - I can read... Still is kinda hard though :(
.. and GEM is a MUST. Must proc and mush have heroism. Rest is just to make it easier. My setup is Gem+hero+sp+juju flurry+battledrums. Currently gathering some spell haste gear also

20 seconds minus 30% ... should be around 14 seconds I guess

And you have 7 secs before the wolf despawns right ?

Gwynin is easymode to tame.. Just throw him a pack of cigarets and a burger, and he is yours!

Yea, it's lifespan is around 8 seconds, so with targetting, using abilities etc your tame should be 7 seconds or less if you want a chance of success.
