See my Patch 4.2 Rare Pet Briefing Post for an updated guide on how to tame Anthriss, as well as the other 9 Patch 4.2 Taming Challenge pets.
Anthriss is a rare yellow lava spider that’s being added in Patch 4.2. Anthriss is part of the… yawn… excuse me… rare beast taming challenges… yawn… oh, pardon me… that will be a part of Patch 4.2.
All of these taming challenges require some sort of unique strategy in order to pull them off.
The trick with Anthriss is that you need to: dismount, dismiss your current pet, be awake, get within 30 yards to start the tame, and… you need to click your Tame Beast spell.
Yes folks, this one is brutal…
Seriously though, I imagine Blizzard will buff the damage of his Searing Web. Even a very well-geared hunter with stacked health buffs should not be able to just walk and tame one of these new rare taming challenge beasts.
Even then… is the strategy going to be… stand in the lave while taming..? What a joke. You see, if you stand in the lava, Anthriss’ Searing Web will burn off. It even says so on the tooltip.
Seriously Blizz… taming challenges..? They should have just announced 8 new rares and left it at that, because this is definitely not living up to the hype.
