My Red Hyena is now a Mastiff. Fix incoming?

Hyena pets that started life as Scarlet Hunting Dogs have been turned into Mastiffs by 4.03.

The first GM ticket I submitted asking that this be fixed got a form-letter response that had nothing to do with my problem. The second ticket I sent got a more relevant form-letter response, stating in part

We are aware of the situation you reported, and are currently working on a solution.

and directing me to the forums.

I was unable to find any blue posts regarding this issue. Does anyone have more concrete information?

There are no Red Hyenas in the game ATM.

Not as far as I can tell, spent hours patrolling that area over several days looking for him.

That Petopia link says there's another one in Uldum if the rare spawn proves too tough.

I already spent way too much time trying to correct a mistake Blizzard made (and seems to acknowledge, based on the response I got from them).

Now I'd like more information on what the solution they're pursuing is going to look like.

Thanks for your input though.

Wait a week and then go tame one in Uldum.

That's pretty much what any GM response is going to entail.

Their solution will either be returning your mutt to a hyena, or telling you to man up and go tame another one if you care so much about what your dog looks like.


I was already aware that the possible responses to a yes/no question are either yes or no. What I'm looking to find out is which one of those options it's going to be.

Thanks again for your input though.

Neither of the GM responses I've received so far have said anything like that.

If this is a bug as they indicate your best bet is to place this in the Bug forum.

Thanks, I'll try that.

It's probably intentional. I seriously doubt the Scarlet Crusade would be training hyenas over hounds.


The hyena/scarlet pairs were replaced with alliance/mastiff pairs, which is very likely the reason why his hyena turned into a mastiff. I'd be willing to bet large that anyone who tamed the rare red hyena still has a rare red hyena.

Jeez. You can tame another in a couple weeks in Uldum. Quit your whining.
