I would really like a fire beetle for my miner, but I have no idea how to get one.

Are pets buyable?

It's not possible to buy pets from vendors. The selling player has to transfer the pet to you personally.

You can buy horses, pack horses, and pack llamas from a stablehand NPC, but those are the only useful animals. Anything else needs to come from a player.

Also, players with [young] status were unable to receive pets from other players last I knew. Don't know if this is the case for you, but wanted you to avoid the headache if so. Good luck!:)

If I were looking for a fire beetle on Oceania I would post on the tamer board and/or the Oceania board.
Tamer forum I'd title the post something like 'seeking to buy firebeetle on Oceania', for shard board you could obviously leave the shard name off.

I do not have a tamer (or any useful char) on oceania. On my home shard I'd tame you one for free just for the fun of it, as long you'd keep the spawn off me.
There must be tamers on your shard too, so good luck on finding a fire beetle for you miner :)

One last piece of advise: Tamers in New Haven will often get you one for free. Particularly if you have [young] next to your name - although, you'll have to renounce your young status to receive it...

Lost my young tag a little while ago, and I just Gm'ed my mining so wouldn't really be looking for or expecting a hand out (though would never turn down a free Fire Beetle).

A fire beetle is the only non-tamer rideable I will charge for.

Pretty dangerous to aquire. I know there are ways, but all of them are dicey for my tamer.
