It is no longer possible for pets to retain any special effects or buffs that were present before they were tamed. This is due to a glitch where certain pets retained cosmetic appearances and/or damage buffs when tamed. Instead of allowing for the possibility for of those damage buffs to get through, Blizzard handled them with one fell swoop. This was probably a much easier and better solution than picking and choosing what stayed and what went.

He has to die and be tamed at the same time, time the death and the Tame Beast very carefully but making sure the DoT kills the mob a few milliseconds before the tame is finished. Then spam Revive Pet, perferabley before the same is done.

I dont know if Blizz got rid of him. Last I checked its still possible to obtain him. You need a person with the quest to toss the torch while you tame.

Timing is the issue. The tame is a constant 10 seconds. The torch is a varible and is not constant when it kills the boar. Add to this the throw timing must be correct to kill the boar at the time the tame is complete with the flame debuff still active.

Now on the last second of the tame you must be spamming Rez Pet to get the pet to despawn with the flame debuff and to stop it from its auto lvl'ing.

You are correct, its a PITA to tame and will take time to obtain it, but when you have it, you will have one nice looking pet.

Goodluck on the tame.

I tried to tame it for 1-2 hours a week ago.

No longer working, and I checked Petopia nobody else was able to tame special pet buffs. Except for one, a glowy two headed bird in Outland. This is because the glitch tame has to do with despawning, not death or abandonment.

I remember reading somewhere that there was a silithid that gave a great buff to fellow silithids, and it stacked. But via this glitch tame you could tame it with the buff and give it to your fellow party members, so raid guilds were using this to get massive 100% increase in something or other, I forget what exactly.

That was one of the reasons,there was another one,but I can't really remmeber it now though.
Those glitch buff pets were fixed quite quickly once Blizz found out about them.
*Just relized it was a Necro thread. xD, whoops*
