There’s a lot of hunter art out there, but the above “Taming Chromaggus” piece is, without a doubt, my favorite. Taming raid bosses is a rite of passage for any hunter. It’s all the more special if it’s a boss you’ve faced in the past when it was relevant content. Next on the list of tameable raid bosses is going to be Chimaeron in patch 6.0. I’m so ready.
Chromaggus is a Core Hound pet found in Blackwing Lair (level 60 raid) and at level 90 there’s really no trick to taming him. He’s the second last boss of the instance. Razorgore is the biggest obstacle (some people still have trouble soloing that one). If you’re currently farming Dragonstalker armor, you will need to give up a chance at the shoulders because if you tame this guy, he’s obviously not going to drop any loot.
There is an alternative option with Chromehound, a level 49 Chromaggus lookalike who patrols inside Blackrock Mountain. He’s a rare spawn, so you’ll have to camp or get lucky to find him. Simply going into Blackwing Lair for the big daddy version is probably quicker.
While you’re in Blackwing Lair, keep an eye out for a few of the coolest ranged weapons in the game for transmog. They all have fairly low drop rates (about 10%), so it could take you a while.
- Ashjre’thul, Crossbow of Smiting — Chromaggus (guess you’re going to have to come back)
