Gara is located in the Southern East side of The Burial Fields in Shadowmoon Valley.
As a BM - Hunter when clicking on Gara the text comes up:
<The spirit wolf does not acknowledge your presence, and continues to stare blankly at a crude grave nearby.>
Then have the option to
(Beast Mastery) Lean down and scratch the wolf behind its ears.
But at this time doesn't appear to do anything.
EDIT: I went back and switched to a secondary spec of Mark and the Second part
(Beast Mastery) Lean down and scratch the wolf behind its ears.
was not there, which I had expected. Just tested to see if there may have been different reactions for different class/spec.
Just a quick update:
As of 9/7/14 (WoD beta), the method of taming Gara has been confirmed. I do not want to leave out vital details but I would highly recommend you visit Bendak's site to find out how.

Awesome effort to all the folks involved in unraveling this mystery!
What are the abilities for Gara?
Just tamed Gara.
Truly an epic questline. If you even can call it that.
I'm a proud hunter to have Gara at my side, I'll say as much.
A few notes
You do NOT have to be level 100 to do this. I completed it at level 96.
Dont try to get the Void Lantern from Shadowmoon Valley. Go through Spires of Arak!
You do NOT have to kill the elites with 1,2mill HP.
The elites with the lowest HP are easiest to kill, since they got a 3rd of the HP
Good luck to all you hunters. Enjoy this amazing feat!
wondering how to get through
Fly to Iron Siegeworks, Frostfire Ridge. (For those without the flightpath, the route to Iron Siegeworks is below).
Run straight along the path in front of you (it goes roughly west).
At the very end there is an Iron Stonegrinder facing the rock wall with a big boulder in front of it. To the right of the boulder is a fire. To the left of the boulder is the entrance to a tunnel that will take you through the rocks.
Entrance to tunnel
of the tunnel entrance. (Wasn't able to find a relevant location on Wowhead to post the images).
This is the way to
Iron Siegeworks, Frostfire Ridge
(all coordinates are shown on a map if you click on the links - mouse over the dots on the map for the corresponding points)
The closest flightpath to the pass is Deeproot, Gorgrond @
46.4, 76.6 (map 1)
. From there, take the path north to the point marked
44.6, 72.6 (map 1)
At the crossroads, turn left (west), and it will lead you to the entrance of Deadrgrin @
41.5, 74.1 (map 1)
At this point you have 2 options:
Follow the main path through Deadgrin, and it will lead you to Gorgrond pass.
There is another way through to Gorgrond Pass slightly south of Deadwind that doesn't involve running through so many mobs. This is @
41.3, 75.7 (map 2)
. Just make your way to the entrance of Deadwind and before going in, go south and cross a little pond.
Both routes lead to Gorgrond Pass @
36.1, 78.3 (map 1)
. Take this through the mountains, and you will emerge in Frostfire Ridge, Bones of Agurak @
87.6, 72.3 (map 3)
From Bones of Agurak, follow the path veering to the right (going north) that parallels the mountain ridge and you will get to the Iron Siegeworks flightpath @
86.7, 62.1 (map 3)
(Edit: added info to get to Iron Siegeworks)
I went in to kill Xan but didn't know what to click as he died. Him and Mother disappeared but Gara stayed down so I tried to tame it. Tame was done and Mother said her last words but I didn't get Gara as pet. I purposedly died and exited void realm several times to come back into it without Gara as a guardian. I killed Xan without Gara and still nothing...any advice anyone. I am so close but woahhh! lol
Killed Xan and Gara turned into a spirit wolf and just keeps walking around the tree. Tried to tame her and all I get is "Invalid Target". I tried leaving and returning to the void, nothing works. Please help!
I thought it might help to mention that you fly to Akeeta's Hovel and head south to fight the Shadowmoon Voidtwisters and get the Lanterns.
Incredible and beyond epic "secret" chain quest, I loved being a part of this.
I wish there were more pets like this instead of camping fests.
To add a note, for the end part:
When killing Elder Void Lords or (preferrably) Elder Voidcallers (who have much less hp and hence much easier to kill) remember to go close to mobs so Gara can attack too, also be patient, I killed like 10 mobs in total for big guy to appear.
Second part is, you can pop your own BM pet and fight with mobs and boss, you can dismiss it before taming Gara, you'll have time for it after you kill the Xan (boss).
I Hope this helps, I tried first 2-3 mobs without pet like a noob and it was pain :b
Happy taming fellow Hunters! ^^
Is this able to be tamed as Horde?
It's a real shame she turns into the void wolf skin at the end, I'd much prefer if she just stayed ghostly like when you first meet her. :(
If you like dungeons, Horde can get there by completing Shadowmoon Burial Grounds (on either Normal or Heroic) then taking the portal to Shadowmoon Valley that appears after defeating the final boss. You'll arrive at Anguish Fortress -- run past the rare (or kill the trash in the square to activate the rare if you want to kill it), head either left or right and go around until you find the stairs up, then exit Anguish Fortress and head south to The Burial Field.
Grab at least one flightpath before you leave the area to make the return trip easier!
Question: My guildie went to go start the quest line for Gara. She scratched her behind the ears and then when it is supposed to pop up the option to show her the Shadowberries it doesn't have any other option for her to interact with Gara. Has anyone else had this issue or know a solution? Thanks ladies and gents! :D
Blizzzard that's the way. Quest lines like that or the lvl 60 one getting the bow and stave.
After defeating Xan:
Mother Om'ra says: She is being swallowed by the void! You must help her! There is only one way, tame her, now! Maybe you can find a way to reverse the process, and put her soul at rest, as you have done mine!
Then, after taming:
Mother Om'ra says: You've done it... thank you. Goodbye, Gara, my soul is at peace now. I hope... that you find this peace some day too. I am so sorry, my dearest Gara.
Mother Om'ra's initial statement "Maybe you can find a way to reverse the process..." makes me wonder if we haven't seen the end of this. Here's to hoping!
What is the minimum level a hunter can realistically do the taming quest line?
So worth it its a little work at the end .When you are killing the voids make sure to have gara get the killing blow a few times too see Zon spawns .If you have
USE it .
Good luck in your journey
Has Gara been removed form the game or a spawn timer? I go to her location and ther eis nothing there at the gravesite for me to initially talk to.
She is tameable by both Horde and Alliance.

did this quest chain this morning. It was a pain in the butt. Simple but drawn out. Worth it in the end! I keep her name Gara.
can you tame the undead version now?
