    I've seen a couple people recently saying they were having trouble resurrecting their pets. I think I figured out what may be their issue. You only need to do steps 1, 2 and 4 below to cause the issue, the other steps are just trying to get the pet back and provide more information. Even if trying to summon an elemental is somehow supposed to make your pet non-resurrectable then it should be removed from the necklace and not left in this strange state.

    Title: You can't resurrect your pet if you try to summon an elemental first
    Reproduction Rate: 100% so far
    Blocker? no but discourages new players

    Details: Often times new players haven't decided yet if they prefer tamed pets or summoned elementals. While they are trying them both out it is likely that they will try to summon an elemental to help them finish a fight that their pet died in, before trying to resurrect the pet. Currently this seems to put the pet/necklace into a confused state and the pet will not resurrect, even though the chat might say it did.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1) Summon a tamed pet and allow it to die in battle
    2) Attempt to summon an elemental, I tested with fire elemental. The chat said "Gwendolyn Obscuro utters the phrase Quaes-Wast-Ylem-Ignis-Xen" but no elemental appears.
    3) (optional) Quickly kill remaining mobs so you can pay attention to chat, but do not take long since you have a limited time to try to rez the pet
    4) Cast Resurrect Creature before the timer on the taming necklace has run out. I had 100% chance to resurrect my pet and the chat said "Gwendolyn Obscuro resurrected Timber Wolf <Gwendolyn Obscuro>" but my pet's corpse is still lying there (even if I move away from the body- sometimes they don't get up until you have moved) At this point if I hover over the necklace in my paper doll the timer is still counting down, so the necklace also does not think the pet has been resurrected.
    5) Wait for the countdown to finish. At this point the necklace in my paper doll looks like the pet is in the necklace and the corpse has disappeared, but where it says 'Timber Wolf' under my name in the top corner of the screen it is greyed out.
    6) Try to re-summon the wolf since nothing agrees if the pet was resurrected and the chat says 'You must tame a creature with this necklace before you can use it to summon.'
    7) Switch to a different necklace with a different pet in it. Look at the first necklace and it is labeled in green (because of the ongoing necklace becomes no trade when your pet has died bug) Also when you try to summon the pet in the necklace you are currently wearing it won't work (and it STILL says timber wolf below my name even though I don't have that necklace on anymore
    8) Equip the dead/tried to rez pet necklace again and now it no longer says it contains the pet (though it still says Timber wolf below my name)
    9) Switch back to the other pet, necklace still green in inventory, still says timber wolf in the corner and my other pet still won't summon, though chat doesn't even acknowledge the summoning attempt
    10) Recall home (or otherwise leave the scene) because you get frustrated cause you just want to play the game with a little help from a pet friend and hey there is your other pet standing next to you. But the original necklace is still green in your inventory (of course many new players didn't even have a new pet to try switching to and just wonder why they couldn't resurrect the pet)

    @Gwendolyn Obscuro I merged an old bug report of mine here - I think maybe it's related? I'll try and reproduce this again.

    Yep - verified it's the same bug still in existence from R67.

    This is likely what happened to me when I posted prior un-resable tamed pets. I was often in the ERG when I lost the Nightmares, and did not identify the exact of sequence of events. I think in a later post I realized that summoning an elemental in that sequence from another occurrence, I am not sure it was looked into after that.

    Successful tame using a recently dead pet with corpse still visible created some issues.

    Have not tried to reproduce.

    Not a blocker but needed to re zone to reset.

    Was in Tanglemire with a pet wolf and tamed a massive croc on same necklace.
    Summoned the massive croc and was fighting a legendary croc trying to tame it.
    The massive croc I was using died and was successful taming the legendary a few seconds later.
    The original pet corpse was still there and the corpse was still showing under my name.
    The necklace I was wearing showed the legendary croc.
    Swapped to a different necklace.
    I was able to cast resurrect pet several times before the corpse disappeared.
    Any necklace I used after I was able to summon but it didn't show in scene. The Massive croc name came back under my name.
    When I ported to another zone my summoned pet was there

    Did you summon an elemental while the pet was dead?

    Any successful tame on a necklace where the pet died and corpse is still there.
    Any new summon in same zone after that and the pet is not visible. And if you zone elsewhere the pet appears.
