Tried to tame this on my hunter, but either they're bugged or there's a special mechanic to it, they emote 'Trench stalker shimmers and disappears into its surroundings' every time you try to tame it. I've tried using a flare, but that doesn't help either. I really want this particular color, but I suppose I'll have to wait. If anyone figures it out, please share!
According to wowpetopia community discover, You have to:
- kill talbuks
- drop Fresh Talbuk Meat
- put it VERY close to cat (ez freeze him before and just stand close to him)
- get buff and tame asap, because buff is very short (5sec, 10yd range) ->
OMG it chuffs!
These must be bugged.... I tried to tame 16 times! In SV mostly and tried MM and BM. Trap - feign - camo - throw meat - tame. Does not work, and I am doing it right. Is this one different? I can tame the other ones easily, just not this Fel Trench Stalker. Anyone else having this trouble?
Once you get the Fresh Talbuk Meat (
), you need to:
1) Throw an ice trap on the panthera
2) Feign death to clear aggro
4) Throw the talbuk meat on the panthera
5) Tame immediately, as the meat buff doesn't last long
The meats aren't limited to hunters; my boyfriend managed to farm a few on his rogue and priest since he was helping me. Screenie of my tame in the screenshots =^..^=
Well I managed to farm ~250 Fiendish Leather just from the Talbuks alone, but it was so worth it for this majestic creature.
There is a lot of instructional comment on how to tame these cats but nearly all of them fail to mention that you need to be behind or to the side of them to not aggro them, even in Camo; if you try to get close enough to put the meat right on top of them and they are facing you there is a good chance you have aggroed them again. That's been my experience anyway. And also, you want to tame quickly after seeing the bleed effect on them so remember you will still need to target them again before using Tame Beast. A macro is good there: /tar Panthara Apex /cast Tame Beast for example.
This seems like a load poo I wasted hours getting the meat. Found the cat or cats I wanted to tame. I camo trap the cats both failed very bad same old crap cant tame. I farmed meat for almost 4 hours to get two meat for nothing waste of time. I watched the vid it didn't work twice. So imo this is a load of nothing.
The trick works fine. Just tamed one. Freeze trap, fd, meat, tame. The cat was in front of me and attacking me when I placed the trap. I did not move to the back or side.
Note: I tamed as BM
So this is actually impossible to do, in spite of me seeing other hunters having them, oh well another thing i will never be able to get...
I have wasted all the time i'm going to farming meat a waste of time. I guess you have to be blessed by blizzard to get a new cat. I have wasted 6 meats on every way it shows and still it don't work so blizzard you and lets just say pet your own kitty i'm done wasteinf playing time you your screwed up pet crap again losers.
Have anyone actually tamed this green one? Ive tried many times but.... no go. I dont even see that buff when i throw the meat at that stupid cat. Baaah... And i really really want that cat!
I've seen many posts that tell more or less the same, but differ just enough to make using this item and taming a Panthara quite a nasty job. Maybe there have been some minor changes, or it's just incredibly difficult. But for the hunters who want to tame as of today, I'll tell you as much as I found out, by taming 4 of these beauties, using no less then 19 pieces of Fresh Talbuk Meat.
First, the drop rate for Fresh Talbuk Meat is on average about 1%, but for most drops it took me 200-250 kills for one to drop. Especially for my the last attempt, I was so happy that for once in my WoW history I was actually lucky and had 3 of them drop in like 10 minutes. Simply put, they can drop on your first kill, but to prevent disappointments, tell yourself you've gotta reach the 250 kills mark for one drop. I farmed about 8 in Krokuun and the other 11 at Mac'aree and far as I've seen, there's no difference in droprate, although on Mac'aree you can make more kills in the same time, because the Talbuks are in groups and the groups are pretty close together. On the middle to east side of the island you can make an easy route with plenty of kills.
Second, there are posts telling that the Pantharas in the Seat Of Triumvirate can be killed without Fresh Talbuk Meat. From what I understand from my research, this has been a bug and is fixed, so also inside Seat of Triumvirate you need the meat to tame one.
Third, Make sure you have at least 2 or 3 pieces of meat on you, because taming a Panthara can easily go wrong, like dropping the meat not in exactly the right spot, or triggering agro on the last second, like I said, I needed 19 pieces of meat to tame 4 Pantharas. When you are about to throw the meat, take a second to check if you've got agro (by the red border around your portrait) and if you do, aboard the process and try again.
Four, unassign any followers, as some might mess up your tame. Best to be sure, so no followers. Also, make sure no one is fighting other mobs somewhere close to you, so you're sure nothing can come in between and mess up your tame.
Five, put your taming spell on a hotkey, so you can cast the meat with the mouse and immediately can hit the tame button, as soon as you see the blood splash come up from the dropped meat. This has to be done fast! A second too late and you've lost your chance to tame.
There are posts telling that you shouldnt try to tame sleeping Pantharas, but I tamed 2 of mine from sleeping position, so sleeping is fine, if not better, because they're easier to approach.
This how I did it:
Use Marksman spec, because of camouflage AND freezing trap! It doesnt matter if your weapon doesnt have any traits at all, you wont be using it, but you want to freeze trap your target using stealth, to be as safe as possible.
1) Gather 2, or even better 3 pieces of Fresh Talbuk Meat. If you buy from AH, prices are around 4500-5000g on my server, at the moment, so if you decide to buy, you know what is reasonable and what is expensive. I checked a couple of times and even though they seem to sell pretty fast, prices are quite constant.
2) Pick your target. I've seen warnings and I noticed it myself, dont tame on a slope! Look for a nice flat piece of land to do the taming.
3) Go into camouflage and approach your target up untill 2-3 yards at the most, if you can from behind or side.
4) From camouflage, cast your freezing trap on top of the target.
5) Feign Death! And check if you dont have agro for sure, you need to drop every bit of agro before you do the taming.
6) Position your view as much from the top as you can, so you're looking at your target from above.
7) Now, from feign death, drop the meat on top of the body of your target. I noticed that the safest place to drop the meat, is right on top of his chest, between the shoulders and lower back. DO NOT DROP IT IN FRONT OF HIM, OR AT HIS HEAD! This was my big mistake, first attempts and it doesnt work!
8) As soon as the meat drops on the ground, you'll see a splash and that is your queue to hit the tame button and I mean fast, fast, fast!
If you've done this right, the cast bar from the taming process is now running, let it finish and there's your Panthara pet. Congratulations!
I hope my explanation can be of help to hunters who only now are about to tame a Panthara and I hope they've more luck than I had.
For anyone trying to tame this, just know that people will happily grief you. My recommendation is to bring extra meat, and if someone follows you (same or opposite faction) wait until you're alone, or server hop to find somewhere else to get your cat.
I just went to tame one of these guys. I was completely alone, and made sure of it, but as I laid my trap, a demon hunter hopped down behind me. My meat was already down, and the guy paused long enough to turn and look directly at me, then killed the cat... and moved on to the next available cat to kill it as well.
People are just !@#$s, so be careful: If you buy meat on the AH, you've screwed yourself out of the gold, and if you've farmed it up, you've just spent a lot of very frustrating time just for someone to come along and purposefully ruin your day. If you've been playing a hunter for a while, you've probably been through this already, and it will hold true with any 'special' or otherwise difficult to get pet.
COPY/PASTING my original comment on the Fresh Talbuk Meat page.
NEW tame in patch 7.3.5:
Red Panthara (Ancient Duskcloak)
Location: Grove of Naroua, Krokuun.
It is the only panthara of that color and it is not a rare spawn. It spawns several yards behind the Naruoa spawn point. Taming it will require the same process as the rest of the pantharas pre-7.3.5. 15-60 minute respawn timer.
As of 01/18/2018 I have tamed 7/7 color variations of the Argus Pantharas.
These are the things I learned and some advice for people looking into farming the Fresh Talbuk Meat:
-Best Faming Area: Mac'Aree.
-This item can drop for
of your characters that has access to Argus.
- It can take anywhere from
1-250 (or more) kills
before you can even get one to drop.
- Farm this item on a character that has skinning. Why? You'll probably end up with with several Primal Sargerites, stacks of Fiendish leather, Fossorial Bile Larva, and other items based on your shoulder enchantment before you even get one piece of Fresh Talbuk Meat. You'll also get Rank 3 on Fiendish Leather in the process.
- Do yourself a favor and make sure you farm at least 2 per Panthara that you're looking into taming.
I spent roughly 8 hours (not consecutively) of farming so far and I've only gotten 6 meats.
If you still have 0 luck but have the gold, check out the AH.
TURN OFF YOUR FOLLOWER
. Take your time and go to the Vindicaar to un-assign your follower.
Find a spot where you'll be alone during the taming process.
My first attempt ended in failure when a random Warrior used Heroic Leap trying to get out of fel lava. It's better to be safe than sorry.
Try and avoid uneven terrain.
I lost two meats because of how the panthara was positioned on a slope. It wouldn't eat the meat even though it was thrown directly on top of it.
Have both Feign Death and Freezing Trap out of cool down before you tame.
You have a small window time to re-adjust the trap, attack, feign death, and tame just in case you make a mistake.
Do not rely/wait/expect some kind of animation or sound.
They also did not get any debuffs on any of my taming attempts.
- It is not necessary to create a taming macro for the spefic panthara you want to tame. Feel free to create one to help with targeting the panthara after you Feign Death.
AS OF 7.3.5 THE RARE PANTHARAS THAT DROPS THE FEL SPOTTED EGGS ARE
You may verify this using Beast Lore.
Order of instructions:
0. Obtain a Fresh Talbuk Meat.
1. Throw Freezing trap.
2. Feign Death to remove aggro.
3. Camo and approach carefully. (Try to come from behind if possible!)
4. Throw meat FROM STEALTH.
5. Hit tame!
- They do not need to be sleeping.
- It's best to have multiple meat on standby in case of errors!
- If you think its aggroed, do not throw your meat.
BE CERTAIN IT IS NOT AGGROED!

A few other things you should know:
- Some of the Silver-Blue (Duskcloak Alpa/Shadowstalker) pantharas in the Petrified Forest are scripted to attack the un-targetable talbuks close to them.
- Some of the Fel-Green (Trench Stalker) pantharas outside of the cave won't eat the meat thrown at them. Best to avoid taming the ones outside of the caves and the ones next to the lava.
- There are several Purple & Yellow (Panthara Shadowfang) pantharas sleeping by themselves outside of the Umbra Hollows area.
- You can no longer tame the pantharas inside Seat of the Triumvirate without using any meats.
Tried and failed to tame a Trench Stalker today, went to the place shown in video.
ppl had said not to use freezing trap, since the nerf, so i didn't.
I went >cameo>throw meat>tame
The cat just did it's phasing thing and resisted the tame. I feel it's cause the cat was in combat the very moment you throw the meat which breaks cameo.
So be warned, the non freezing trap method didn't work for me. I wasted the meat I'd spent a couple of hours farming.
I'm giving up on this breed now, don't have the patience to farm the meat again.
For a drop so rare, the tame should be almost guaranteed or reusable.
Since 8.3, I have only had success taming them while they were sleeping, as the awake ones will bug out after throwing the meat and still give that 'shimmers' error. Also I had the most success taming one that was on the cliffside across from the Varga cave entrance. These are not as clustered as the ones inside the cave, so there is less chance to aggro nearbies. With that out of the way, the steps are as follows:
Unequip your weapon
, and get up close to a sleeping cat
Throw the meat to land directly underneath its mouth
cast Tame Beast before you pull aggro
Using this method, I have successfully tamed the Pink, Indigo, Fel-Green, Violet, and Silver-Blue color variants. No need for Freezing trap or Feign Death. Happy hunting!
I've given up on these. Sick of them bugging out
Does this still work? I tried the same taming method everyone says to do but it didn't do anything. The cat still shimmered. Extremely disappointing since I've had terrible luck and it took me hundreds of daily Talbuk kills just to get one Talbuk meat. There are some in the AH but they're absurdly expensive.
