Taming Challenge tactics

The challenge in taming Ban'thalos is aggroing him from his extreme altitude and surviving the fall and the moonfire damage while you descend. [Disengage] has been suggested. Engineers can use their  [Flexweave Underlay]. Goblins can also use their [Rocket Jump]

If all else fails, use a  [Colossal Parachute] (but be quick, the item will disappear from your bags 20 minutes after purchase from the vendor in Feralas).

It is also possible to stand at the top of the tallest tree around the shrine and wait until Ban'thalos flies close. In this case, it is only necessary to fly up a short distance to get in range. Dismount, engage while falling, and land on the top of the tree with only minor fall damage.
