Taming the Beast (Draenei 1) is the first pet taming quest in the chain of three for hunters in the Draenei starting area of Azuremyst Isle. It has the hunter capture a Barbed Crawler for use as a pet.
When the hunter first begins <his/her> path, <he/she> learns only to kill. Now it seems you are ready for more.
The Stillpine furbolgs have provided a means to master the skill of taming without months of study. They are able to carve a totem into the likeness of an animal, which you can use to temporarily bond with a creature of that type.
For your first lesson, take this totem and use it on the barbed crawlers found along the western coast of the isle.
Were you able to harness the magic of the totem to befriend a barbed crawler? They are feisty little creatures!
I'm sure the first thing you learned was how unsympathetic the crawler was during the bonding process. It's all claws until they know you aren't there to throw them into a boiling pot.
