    So the Armadillo is an offensive rodent? I’m not sure that’s biologically accurate, but I suppose I’ll take it.

    ROFLMAO, just went through this again and this time noticed that under Canine “Hyena” is listed.

    From wikipedia:
    “Hyenas or Hyaenas (from Greek “ὕαινα” – hyaina[1]) are the animals of the family Hyaenidae (play /hɪˈɛnɨdɛ/) of suborder feliforms of the Carnivora.”

    that is they are cats not dogs. Those dumb turkeys at SOE have stuffed it up again!

    lots of other Taxonomic errors too.

    Hyenas are cats not dogs.
    Turtles are reptiles not amphibians
    Armadillos are not rodents
    Beavers are not rodents they are weasels
    Sheep are Ovine, not bovine (ungulates is a better category for both)
    Gorillas are Primates not simians (monkeys)
    Crocodiles are reptiles not crustaceans (crabs)
    Pigs are also ungulates so why are they separated out? Some sort of Jewish/Muslim thing?

    interesting, so ratongas get felines as their base warders instead of rats. I wonder how many would-be ratonga beastlords were initially eaten by their potential pets.

    Also, badgers are weasels. That is, on Earth they are, but Norrathian taxonomy could be different. In a world with ample arcane and divine power, anything is possible.

    For example, the Norrathian Hyena could have been the result of a crazed gnome’s experiment involving a broken tinkered mechanomagical teleport device, a sabretooth cat, and half a dozen wolf puppies.

    The one that stuck out for me was hyenas. I knew they were cats not dogs.

    The others are kinda taking liberties to fit into 12 categories.

    Un, no….A Hyena is neither cat nor dog…they have their own family, the Hyaenidae. Their closest relatives are the mongoose, meerkats and the like.

    Between the cat and dog families, Hyena’s are closer to the cat.

    Cool. Turtles are reptiles btw, not amphibians. Not sure if that is your classification or theirs, but I think it should be fixed in the guide.

    Too bad no spiders or elephants. There are a lot of neat spiders we could get, and I have fond (if distant) memories of leveling up in CL with bull elephants chasing me around.

    It is the SoE categories. There are not a lot of amphibians and turtles are livig in an “amphibian” ecosystem so it makes kind of sense.
    Hyenas in Norrath are NOT called hyeanas but “carrion hounds” so they’re technically dogs too.

    One info is missing at first glance: are exotic defensives or offensives?

    You have draconine guardian listed as tamable and I did see someone with one but I’m trying to tame (yes I do have the ability to tame exotics) and I’m getting “certain enemies cannot be tamed.” and can’t tame it.

    I tamed one about two hours ago just above the Pit of the Awakened.

    I know you said you have the ability to tame exotics, but are you actually using the Tame Exotic Warder ability? Stare Down doesn’t work on Exotics either.

    When taming exotics be aware that you have to get them to 25% instead fo the regular 50%. I just tamed a draconine guardian about 5 min ago.

    Also….. Shard of Love lion was not able to be tamed.

    I’ve been using the deer in Beta and I really enjoy some of the things the Bovid can bring to your group. It may not be the best DPS warder but it’s great defensively and has a little group heal as well.

    Who can turn up the chance of a the MeatBeast around level 50?

    Seems that you can also tame the Shimmering Guardians walking around outside the Poet’s Palace (cheetah, panther) as a dire pet.

    The glass deers from Shard of Love can also be made a dire pet.

    Actually the crocs in Darklight Wood should be tameable. I guess that comes from my miss interpreted post from the beta forms. I meant that you can tame them, so there is a low level option to gain a croc warder.

    Re: Cats and Dogs on Hyaena/Hyena. Real world taxonomy is barely scientific it relies on imperfect categorization of premodern scientists. It is also difficult to even classify species as they are constantly changing and so many different factors are present. Living in Kenya I know that people refer to hyenas as being in packs not prides (this cackle business is just someones sense of humor). It doesn’t matter what SOE chooses so long as the flavor is good. Hyenas ‘feel’ alot more like canines than felines whatever their evolutionary background.

    Exact location of the Duck is -588, 174, 1072 between the building and the rock located there. I helped a guy get the duck at around 10:50am est The duck was back up around 12:52pm est. So I will have to check back in two hours to see if it is a two hour spawn timer. Also the duck’s name is Mallard Phimore. He is a lvl 90 double up. Doesn’t hit to hard.

    Nox, and Chunk I’ll hit CL up and take a look. I only remember lions in CL, but I’ll take a quick fly by. If I find a loc I’ll drop it back here.

    The Warboar is functionally identical to boars/pigs. You think it should have a separate category all to itself? What if SOE adds other unique appearances later on? Every time I add a category, it changes the page numbering of the article.

    I hope they add a way to allow us to store Beastlord appearances. I’d hate to lose the housecat appearance if I get an inclination to have a leopard and then have to run Unrest again to get it back.

Hmm!

    Fine, I’ll spoil it.

    Staintooth burrowers in Dire Hollow: Infernal Echoes (~level 35) are tameable. You need Investigating Dire Hollow (Teamwork) quest to enter and there are three versions of the instance, chosen randomly. The quest is repeatable once every two hours.

    If the first monster you see in there is a rumbleroot, you’re in the correct one.

    Oh yea! One of the first warders I tamed was an sea turtle in frostfang and it became a frog once tamed. Thought that was weird, figured it was a bug or something. But then I got the icy turtle from the frostfell instance and forgot about it haha

    The mobs: A mangy cat (4 of them linked with a troll NPC) are tamable and are located in Pillars of Flame at 4.19, -93.08, -783.39.

    They are the same size/classification as the “An Aloof Cat” from Unrest. They do have different skins, however; patchy colored fur in three colors. Black and grey, white and cream, and red (reddish) and brown.

    Brigh.Guk – I’m pretty sure if you’re 90 it won’t work. I’ve heard lots of people saying you have to mentor to like.. 60? Or 80? To be able to tame it for some reason. Also here’s a link to the picture of the cat skin for the ones in POF (just one color, there are two others not pictured here) so you don’t have to go trying to take an SS of them.

    Not liking the trend of seeing the varity of tames decrease. Would be nice if they add some new ones when they take others away.

    As of last week: ‘a timorous octopus’ @ Timorous Deep is not tamable. Pity, I think an octopus might make an entertaining warder.

    Nice list, thanks. Just restarted EQ2 after a year out with a Beastlord.

    Oh and for the record:

    Hyenas are neither cats nor dogs. They belong to their own family, the Hyaenidae, which also includes the aardwolf. This family is more closely related to cats than to dogs.

    The resemblance of hyenas to dogs is due to convergent evolution.

    A few new warders up on test in the new waking lands zone.

    A corrupted wolf, doe, a new croc skin, and a panther. They have also added a new familiy for beastlords – Insects! Beastmaster sight dosen’t seem to be working on them to well, so I haven’t tested out what might be avalable for that. I would assume beetles, the bulky scarubs, centepeeds, mosquitos, dragonflys, and spiders would fall under that famimliy now.

    Just an FYI, there is a black colored drake in Najena’s Tower as well. Same skin as the red one, but a black color to it, you have to clear a few packs of red ones to get to the one with the bigger black one in it.

    All of these drakes also repop if you accidently kill the one you wanted to tame (stupid effin merc).

    Oh, and a lovely “bug” Beastmaster Sight dosent seem to show any of these as tameable, you will have to beat them to 25% and then try.

    So far scorpions, spiders, centepeeds, beetles, dragonflys can be tamed (at least most can be, I have come across several zones they cannot be tamed from)

    You cannot stare them down either… 8(

    As far as untameable goes, the vespids and leeches (which were ‘tameable’ to advance the quest) in Kunzar Jungle cannot be tamed. The dragon flies can be, but they lose the purple sparklie.

    23 new Insect Warder appearances added all courtesy of screenshots and notes provided by Ferrek!! And I can think of a number of other spider, dragonfly, and scorpions throughout Norrath that, if tameable, may even double this number.

    Note that four of the appearances are bugged (specifically the 3 ‘bone’ spiders in the Field of Bone which all turn into grey beetles when adopted). Hopefully these are fixed soon!

    FYI tryed to tame the black and yellow scorpions in timmerous deep / fens, both cannot be tamed, also tryed to tame the greyish crawlers in fens, also not tameable. and yea there are still a ton more out there, many of them copies, but having all of the zones where you can tame them would be nice :)

    Just remember Beastmaster Sight doesn’t seem to work on insects, so it is all trail and error taming to see what works, and what does not!

    Here is something I discovered. If you are on silver account you will not get spell. I’ve sent in petition and response was since spell is labeled fable those that are silver will not get. It is being escalated to see if this was intended or a bug. I got the credit but where I using station cards when my budget allows me I hop back and forth from gold to silver.

    There are a lot of insects in one zone with several different names to them, but all look exactly the same. If one zone is on the list, you can pretty much assume all insects with that apperance will be tamable :)

    You can add the flame wasp appearance to the insect category – I have tamed one on my BL.

    The Ember drones, workers, and soldiers @Kylong Plains.

    I tried the spell on two of them (the drone and worker, I think) so I’m pretty certain all three work.

    Oh, also, for the Reptiles; I can confirm that the light green plated chokidai in Chardok are tameable (the ones near the entrance) and look like the image you show.
    I can also confirm that the chokidai pup in Sebilis is tameable and gives a dark green appearance (plated) – darker than the one in the listing. It is the appearance I am currently using on my reptile warder.

    The flesh feeders and flesh fiends in Kylong PLains in the Gash of T’Thelin are tameable as mystical warders. They are green version of the frightling. They look like they are the same color green to me, just different names.

    Just wanted to update for those who may not know. On Antonia Bayle, we’ve confirmed a spawn point for the new bovid critter, “A Berry-fed Bovid” in Windstalker Village in Antonica near the cows. This bovid appears to spawn at the beastlord’s level (the one who is catching him) and dies quite easily so be careful. It doesn’t appear that there is a level requirement as I caught him on my level 13 Beastlord and he was my level.

      I update the guide periodically. Also I wasn’t trying to document every mob in every zone, but just a few representatives so people can easily get any appearance they want. That’s good to know about kerra isle pouncers. I think they’re dire because they’re displacer beasts, right?

      I’ve got a bunch of photo submissions for GU66 and so that will probably be a good time to update this guide.

    Someone a bit higher level then me might want to recheck the bone spiders. As of earlier today a dust crawler @ Butcherblock Mountains did not turn into a beetle unless I somehow don’t know what the conditions are for it to happen.

    I tamed it, zoned, resummoned it, it stayed a grey bone spider.

    @ miragian

    The info on the guide may be out dated, at the time I tamed those spiders they were bugged. I neither work for Sony or know of their mystical bug fixing ways, so I would not know if or when they might of fixed them. Haven’t been playng my beastlord in a long time as well. Good to know they have fixed those spiders now though, usualy when one gets fixed they all do (I had posted bug reports on them several times, one might of finally been read).

    Now the real question is, anything new to tame in Siren’s Grotto? :D
    I already submited screenshots on the Cobalt Scar finds (hint hint Feldon).

    Shadowy creatures (like the shadowy chokidai on Green Overlook in TD) are tameable. However, it appears that when tamed they lose their shadow appearance – at least, the shadowy chokidai I tamed turned into wild chokidai once I had it.

      I know this is a little dated, but I can confirm what Lodrelhai Says.. just tamed a Shadowy Stag in Commonlands (was lvl 84 heroic to me, though they died easy) and it turned into a regular stag as well.

    There’s a meatbeast hiding in Nektropos Castle in Nektulos. You have to hop/fly over the walls from Nektulos, don’t zone in. It’s a nasty thing and high level as well.
    All the patchwork beasts are tamable as well.

    I don’t know if this is still being updated at all, but people looking for flying snakes can find the blue and green ones at MUCH lower levels than listed. They can be pulled up out of the canyon in Darklight, at the entrance to Neriak. Have confirmed both can be tamed; kept the green one.
