as of patch 5.1 a new pet snuck in under our noses, if you ever wanted an oversized maggot worm pet ripping the limbs off your enemies this pet is for you.

in Dread wastes, in the south east, under the lake of stars there are 3 beast npcs, Needleback porcupine, Bonedust moth, and Bluehide mushan, the mantid have infected them and they will vomit out a maggot called an amber parasite, this beats is infact tameable.

stop your attacks, swap to the maggot, tame beast, done, after the tame your maggot may randomly die, revive and it will not happen again, enjoy it while it lasts!

NOTE: Beast mastery is required as this is classed as a worm.

np man:)

tested a few worms in the plague lands, they are not tameable and aren't even classified as worms, don't even have a diet.

Chibee 2.0? Let's hope he isn't ripped from under us in the next patch.

I can confirm this! Just tamed one on Echo Isles. He's HUGE! As big as Chibee. He's huge and obnoxious and disgusting and I named mine Burchard :3

Edit: His Burrow animation is broken, he just kind of sits there wiggling. It's adorable.

Seriously. I almost posted and shared the joy... then thought, I better not in case Blizz realizes they need to "fix" the bug.

So I just run around with mine out all the time and answer whispers from fellow hunters :-)

Sorry to bump this, but I wanted to post a fun fact I discovered.

This pet uses the Mr. Grubbs flipping animation for when he gets knocked back. I discovered this when doing the Golden Lotus daily where the Shado Pan dudes throw fireworks at you. Watching this giant maggot constantly doing frontflips made me laugh for like twenty minutes.

EDIT: Proof! :3
