Tame Beast allows the Hunter to train the beasts of Azeroth and make it their life-long companions. The ability is essential for hunters to learn new abilities for their pets that which cannot be trained from pet trainers.

It is rewarded from the quest Taming the Beast, depending on race and faction.

Tips and tactics

Taming a beast can be made easier with some preparation. Some of the beasts you encounter have special attacks which will cause your attempt to tame them to fail.

  • Put down a [Freezing Trap] between you and your target and optionally use [Concussive Shot]. This will add up to 20 seconds of uninterrupted time for taming.
  • Have a mage friend [sheep] the beast and you can then tame it.
  • Have a druid friend [Hibernate] it.
  • Have a priest friend [Holy Nova] around you while you tame it (no threat).

The methods above applied more to when the time to tame was 20 sec. With the time now 10 sec. many of these methods are not necessary.
