taming

I just have a quick question. Can someone heal me while I tame, or will that interrupt the taming?

bump. Please, anyone? I'm following terropene around waiting for a guildie to come heal while I tame. I hope it works...

Carefully, yes. Healing generates aggro and if you lose aggro on the beast, the taming stops. One way is to have a priest cast Holy Nova since it generates no threat. I've found the easiest way is to just lay a freeze trap, trap the beast, then tame it.

Exactly what this guy said.

One other possibility: anyone know if Earthshield ticks generate threat? Last time I checked (admittedly more than a year ago) it generated threat on the shielded target, so long as it was cast before combat.

While they're good tips, they're useless when the mob is immune to CC.

True, but Holy Nova would still work if he has a priest friend.

I was trying to tame terrorpene, who is immune to the frost trap and has that ranged fire attack that was killing me before I could get the tame off.

A priest friend helped me out. After dying a couple times (and almost killing him, which freaked me out!) we ended up with a strategy that worked. we attacked, then she healed and took aggro, then let terrorpene kill her so she went into guardian angel, lost aggro and I tamed. It worked, I got him :)

Thanks for the help.

As a follow up question, why does terrorpene look like just a normal turtle in my pet list on the forums here? All my other spirit beasts look like their awesome selves, but he looks like a normal turtle.
