Title. So pissed right now. Been after Arcturis for YEARS and when I finally find him and don't have to fight someone else for him, I land, hit tame beast, and my "Caged Horror" trinket procs from TAME BEAST and kills him.
So incredibly annoying. Opening a ticket in the long shot hope that someone can check game logs and give me what was so unluckily stolen from me today by the cruel RNG gods.
I'm gonna go sit in a corner and cry now.
Edit: the response to my ticket:
“Thank you so much for taking the time to reach out to me this evening, I hope you're doing well. I understand that you were trying to tame Arcturis but an item you had triggered which killed them. I'm so sorry to hear about this, that's definitely not the best timing and I know spirit beasts have long and rare spawns.
In a sense, it is intended that it works this way. The proc occurs from any spell cast, and because tame beast is a spell this is a possibility. That's not to say this can't be improved though, and I'm going to be submitting feedback about this to our Development team so we can look into making changes regarding that to adjust.
As for the pet itself, i'm afraid we don't have a mean to create pets inside of your stables or spawn them in the game world. While I do know this was an accident, I'm afraid you'll need to try this again the next time he's up. A tip I used to help capture Spirit Beasts was to hop between realms (Have people from other realms invite you to a party, then you teleport to their realm) and looking for him that way.
I know this may not be the outcome you were hoping for, but I do hope you have a great day!”
