    Guide: How to tame the oil stained wolf

    So we've all seen the oil stained wolf out in Borean Tundra, and probably a lot of us tried to tame the wolves as well only to end up with a normal grey looking worg. Well the trick is out, it can be done, here is a guide on how to tame the oil stained wolf so that it keeps it's oil slicked coating!



    EDIT: updated this tame as of 4.0.1. Go to 3:40 if you are level 80 with decent haste to see the tame. If you are low leveled (72-78), use the ice trap method.

    Slick!

    Pun intended.

    I avoided borean on most of my toons so heres hoping my hunter still has this chain available, I'll be sure to try it if so.

    BP? I see what you did there. I'm not a fan of the skin itself, but trick/skill tames are always fun =)
    Win and live. Lose and die.
    Rule of life. No change rule.
    Running worse than losing.
    Random casual stuff now

    Thanks for the information, that's awesome! I wish I were able to go out and get one. Unfortunately I'm a horde with no allies friends.

    Would be sweet to get this, unfortunately alliance on my server is immensely uncommon. I'd have to like level my own alliance just to pull this off.

    That's pretty cool. I figured it was exactly like that (throw the meat for that quest, freeze the wolf, tame it). I've done that quest a million times; just not sure if I've done it on my hunter or not, since I tended to alternate between the starting zones with my toons.

    So, Arena can remove the skin, anything else that can like dungeons/raids/pet-resurrection?
    I'm an altoholic since 2005.

    Nothing else has removed the oil from mine, not instances, raids nor deaths. OH I haven't check bgs yets. Be careful :/

    12s is too long. Try between 8 and 10, depending on your haste. Also they do randomly despawn, it's just annoying if you happen to get a bunch that are on that despawn timer. Go to another little area, hopefully they'll stick around for the tame. Good luck!

    Nice find, and nice of you to share with the community. But how long until Blizz patches this like the Worgen?

    Also, your server Ravneholdt-EU was the first server I ever played on, and back when I was super noob the very old RRinc players were always answering my embarassingly stupid questions, nice to see that they are still full of pleasant and helpful people!

    It took me like 20 tries to do it, i had to do tame pet at about 6 seconds of freeze trap left because iam a survival hunter and haste capped.
    here is a screeny i named it void like you sayd because it is just a awesome name for it :P

    This is why I hate the WoW community.

    Plus, could you crave for attention any more by setting your avatar as (What I'm presuming is) a picture of you? Can't you just be genderless on a forum? God damn.

    Probs get banned for pointing this out because I might offend a girl.

    But an ok exploit I guess, enjoy it while it lasts.
    Yeah it's so different from real life where we are all mean to women and treat them like shit... Sarcasm off, I do think you are generalising, and being incredibly sexist/harsh. It would seem you are trying to create an argument, and seem to be a bit jealous.

    On topic, I wouldn't call it an exploit as such, as the only gain is aesthetic. It is a shame that Blizzard patch such things as it is always nice to have something rare or unusual to admire and be admired for.

    Damn wish I could do this but I'm horde. I got a worgen when all that started and that was really fun trying to figure out how to tame it, I just wonder if there's any other method to tame this guy and keep its skin.
