Where the Wild Things Are: An Overview of the 4.2 Challenge Tames

In the first KPoP flashback series, we'll be visiting the Molten Front and all ten of the challenge tames introduced in patch 4.2.

Hey everyone! This is Kalliope, here to give you a quick look back at the ten challenge tames of patch 4.2.

On June 28th, 2011, a daily quest hub was added to Mount Hyjal, connecting into a larger quest hub in the Molten Front. Hunters had the added bonus of being able to tame 10 new beast rares - three spirit beasts, five lava spiders, one cat, and one crab. Between them, there are eight unique taming challenges. Each challenge pushes hunters to figure out the mechanics for each tame, then successfully execute them.

The challenges test different hunter skills, but they all have two things in common: their level - 85 - and their deadly nature. Though the tames can now be overleveled and are therefore a lot safer for the hunter, a few of them will still one-shot the unprepared, while others will require an even lighter touch than before to keep the beast alive.

I'll be showing you all the beasts and their taming mechanics in subsequent videos, each with helpful tips and tricks to taming them.

For even more in-depth information on the Molten Front rares and other hunter pets, be sure to visit Petopia and the Petopia forums.

From the front lines of the Molten Front, this is Kalliope, inviting you to stick around and see where the wild things are.
