Gnome, Goblin and Mechagnome hunters automatically know how to tame Mechanicals. Hunters of other races must acquire the skill from a Mecha-Bond Imprint Matrix, crafted by Engineers who have at least 1 skill point in Legion Engineering.
Retains its original name after taming. Located in a cave in the large island north-west of Seeker's Vista, this mechanical tiger is only rarely tameable. Each time the World Quest Sabertron is available there is a chance this unit will be activated after killing the Sabertron Technician. The probability is probably one-in-four per event, given that there are four rarely-available Sabertrons in the cave. The fifth colour, red-black can be activated and tamed all the time.
Level scaling: Most NPCs will scale with the Hunter's level, within the constraints of their level range. Hunters can tame regular NPCs up to 2 levels higher than them, but can only tame elite NPCs of the hunter's level or below.
