My Grub Has Bite

A while ago, I was doing Terrace LFR and saw this frigging huge grub in the raid. A little after that, while checking out the AH, I saw another one. I had asked both hunters where they came from but I didn’t get an answer – although the guy in the AH was AFK. The first time I saw anything about this pet was on Kalliope’s blog. Sometime later, I saw Euphy’s post on the green version from Silithus which Tome and Matty both tamed.

Last night, I finally logged onto my Hunter to tame this colourful beast. All you need to do is head to the Dread Wastes and attack one of the infected wildlife. You may recall the daily where you need to do this but the daily isn’t required to get the Amber Parasites to spawn. In my case, I had to get the moths health very low before anything happened.

Be aware that you need to have a BM spec due to their exotic nature and will need to tame this guy before 5.2 hits as they will soon be untameable.

  1. He’s huge! And kinda cute in a slimy way. :D

    If my hunter dings 90 before the patch I might get me one of those. :)

    • I don’t normally like worms and was going to tame Chibee in the Jade Forest but that turned out to be harder than I expected from the phasing. There’s always the green one in Silithus that’s only level 54.

      • I just logged in to see if I could find Chibee. After running around a bit in the area he spawned. Unfortunately he’s not as big when tamed as he once used to be: http://loreleispixels.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/chibee.jpg

        I might go for one of the pink-ish ones out it Townlong Steppes once I get to 88. They aren’t big either though, but very cute. ^^

  4. I don’t know what the appeal of giant wormy things is but they just have that certain “something” lol! Might have to get this one to keep my green one company!

  5. Aah, my hunter’s only 87! Thanks for the heads up, this might just be enough warning to level up in time!

  6. I agree with Tome, these worms do just have a special “something” about em. ;)

    Have you used bestial wrath with him out yet? Lol they get to like the size of a house when you use it. I’m sure melee dps and tanks just love these guys in dungeons…hehe

  10. He’s fabulous, it’s almost tempting to see if I can rush my hunter to a high enough level this weekend to grab him.

  12. Gratz on your grub! I do hope I make it to 90 in time to get this one, I did get the green version today just in case but I really do like the amber coloring more.
