Dire Horns

Hunter
Now if only we could tame the worgen...

And skin em too.
Also they need to be exotic tameable only. BEAST MASTAH IS THE BEST if you don't like it then re-roll

Also I'm thinking and aoe stun for this pet.
The patch said to look for clues in order to tame this pet, makes me think that we need to track them like panda rares, or we need to complete a class specific quest line in order to tame them. If it is the latter, it would make sense for them to be non exotic, as having a spec specific quest line would make no sense and would bring about all kinds of grief.
Well, it is either BM only, or not for BM. Both would piss people off.

I am simply upset that they are focusing on giving us shinies rather than fixes.

Nothing new.
MUDUFUKN DINOSOR!!!
The Dire Horns are only tamable for BM but specifically those that have learned the art of Dinomancy,

Without that tome you can only look but not tame those awesome beasts! Good luck hunting!
triceratops, amazing!

As BM, I don't mind it if MM/SV can use them. I would like to have an additional ability on them, as BM, that MM/SV don't have, but that doesn't fit the norm, so I doubt it will occur.

Edit: And they did "fix" Powershot, didn't you read the updated tool tip?

Please stop spreading rumors.

There is nothing to state they are exotic. Unless you meant "Are not only tameable for BM." and just left out the not.
Anybody has any info on how we are supposed to get this book? I just hope you don't have to be exalted with a new faction, I would rather have it as drop or a chain quest, I am crossing my fingers they don't come with the bright idea to tie it to the daily fest grinding rep :S

Personally, I'm just hoping it's not from the BMAH.

I don't care if I have to rely on a drop from a rare or having to grind rep.

But having to spend 100k+ to buy it? HELL TO THE FREAKING NO.

I think it is going to be a quest chain, akin to the lock one (maybe not as in depth). I.e. kill X boss in the raid, start the quest, do some solo stuff, completed. There is some eggs data mined that seem fitting for "birthing" a dino.

Which, we did for a raptor mount before. So, dailies, /woot! +)

Those eggs are most likely a Oracles egg situation, not for a Direhorn quest. :P

Well I thought having to grind rep for a month could prove to be the worst case scenario but if it is on the BMAH I will rage flip many tables, I don't have and would not spend crazy amounts of gold, but I guess the chain quest seems to be the most logical way for it to be implemented.

hehe, I have a buddy who got his Green Proto near the end of Dragon Soul (started in the first patch of WotLK I think). That is with buying the egg timer reset. Won't he be thrilled +)

I got mine first egg....

What I heard and read from scrolls of lore, mmo-champion, wow-petopia, and my friends on PTR, is the pet is exotic like Devilsaurs. I don't know where dinomancy tome drops but what I heard is that they are Exotic pet and to be honest that makes sense. Survival and MM do not depend on their pets for damage in the way BM does. Remember Beast Mastery is the art of taming beasts of all kinds. I think we should all hope the tome is not so rare we can't all have it. XD

god I hope that gem turtle isn't a spirit beast
Currently on the PTR Dire Horns are NOT BM only.

You learn how to tame them from the item Ancient Tome of Dinomancy which drops from elite mobs on the new island.
I just found out that once you have the dinomancy tome you can tame a dire horn in any spec. That means MM, BM and Surv get the pet!
