    “Krivix Honorclaw should now be using the correct buffs. Players should see a slight increase to tanking ability and max health”
    He needs more than a slight increase in his abilities as he goes down like a sack of potatoes on some of the named needed in the signature quest line.
    The healer version however is far superior.. a massive difference in moboing the questline.

    Hey Brigh? If you go into Nagenas tower you can tame the drakes there. They aren’t as cool looking as the old blue frosty huge one, but it not bad. ^_^

    Only issue with the Healer Merc is his revive is inferior to the inquisitor’s! he rezzes with sickness!

    But that’s to do with the class, not a game bug.

    FYI: The Meatbeast has always been tamable. He was located in a hidden spot in Nektulos Forest. Had to have a flying mount to get him though, since he was inside Nek Castle in one of the corners.

      FYI: a hiding bovoch in Nektulos Forest has been untameable from Dec 2011 til today. Many have tried.
