Cant wait to tame this wonderful pet.....Located in Storm Peaks...
PS woot first POST
Excellent descriptions of known spawn points so far:
Two alli hunters guarding the metal disk point, another alli hunter guarding the Harpy point. Now if I can only stay awake hovering outside the snowdrift cave for the next few hours... :)
Spawns identified during PTR:
Got first spawn on Feathermoon-US at these locations 27 hours after patch went live, our second tame was 18 hours after that (and 16 hours after a rolling restart). Hunters from other servers were reporting tames within 2-3 hours of 3.2 hitting. TLDR: random spawn is random.
Would almost certainly expect one or two more spawn locations to be discovered given how many the other spirit beasts have.
I had looked for him for a grand total of 39hrs. and 30-45mins. I knew of other hunters getting him over the past couple of days, and all of them were taming him at the spawn point in the Foote Steppes above the village (Titan coords 46, 65), same place I ended up taming him after all that time. For additional screenshots, visit Ladye E's blog at Guild Portal. I uploaded a few of him in beastial wrath. He's massive!
Titan Panel Coords: 46,65 (above Brun. Village), 11:27-ish PM Alaska Time/ 2:27-ish AM server time.
i have him tamed on video here:
I was able to tame Skoll on the Velen server on August 4th @ 7 PM, at coords 45.62, the one right above Brunnhildar Village. He literally spawned in front of me as I was going through my bags making room for more borean leather as I waited this bad boy's arrival. Now, I am constantly inundated with questions from ppl on my server asking me where I acquired him and what type of pet is he? *FYI, he is a Rare Elite level 80 Ferocity pet and can only be tamed/utilized while in the BM spec*.
From other sites, I believe that Skoll's respawn timer is 6 hours. Other coords I have been told he spawns at are
I hope this information proves useful to other hunters in search of this guy. My only problem now is that I need more stable slots in case any more spirit beasts or other "must have" pets are released in upcoming patches, lol. In my stable, I currently have (in order of acquisition)
Ghost Saber, Loque'nahak, Gondria, Sentry Worg & Skoll.
Good luck and happy hunting!
Tamed him at 30.2, 64.7.
Skoll is pretty noticeable as a pet in the Hunter community. There's no real confirmation on his spawn time, from my own experiences it took well over 32 hours for him to spawn on my realm (after going live). There are plenty of reports where he spawns again in a reasonable time though, so if you're planning to camp him, keep in mind that he is a rare spawn and that these guys do not generally have a specific timer you can just set a clock to.
Anyways, some useful notes about Skoll:
He does retain the lightning effect around his body when tamed. This lightning is also audible when idle.
He does have a unique sound compared to regular worgs, but it is not as loud as Loque'nahak. It is much more subtle.
He is also larger than a standard saber worg; he doesn't shrink much when tamed.
He comes with
Claw and Prowl
(and the obvious Spirit Strike ability). No Furious Howl, no Bite.
Found him at Bor's Breath, just southeast of the village with the plagued drakes. The following is a macro that I used to track Skoll, though there are helpful addons such as ESN Rare and NPC scan which may be more helpful to others.
This particular macro will play Illidan's "You are not prepared!" line when it targets the spawn; I used it because it was loud and attention-grabbing (which will come in handy in the longer camping hours).
Map: (I did not make this map, it was provided by WoWKevin from
Good luck to all who camp!
OMG I just got him 30 min ago on my Hunter while reading this..hahaha I never thought I would get it. This baby is bad!
Another pic of me in Ogrimmar
I picked up Skoll on the Undermine server on 8/8/09 at 3:17am. Had been searching for him non-stop since 8/5/09. Had logged out to go to bed at 3:15am, wondered if he was gonna be evil and spawn after I logged out, logged back in at 3:17 and there he was! At the 45,62 spawn point. I was standing with the disk to my left, the blue people village to my back, and Skoll was walking towards me along the cliff to my right. I saw one alliance player with it and switched sides and found out there are apparently 2 alliance with it already and me on the horde side.
Just make sure you put your freezy trap at your feet, he has a jumping attack that can skip a placed trap.
I tamed him at Snowdrift Plains, the little canyon that goes to Valkryion Village. at 3:50 thats one official spot he will be at at least
My NPCScan addon has been going crazy about this rare lately whenever I'm in Dalaran. For some reason, however, I can't target him. Very odd.
This beast is easily found and can be added to your time lost/vy macro.
As far killing him (im not a hunter didnt realise it wasnt added to the
achievement) it is very easy infact far more easy compare to other mobs in that area i have found.
here is where i have found him (
), i also suggest camping that spot as both vyragosa and time lost fly by there so little effort for 3 rares.
Just found and tamed him at 9:45 pm server time, durotan, at the south snowdrift plains spot. Well worth the 2 days camped. Very awesome spirit beast, best of luck to those trying to tame him!
I tamed him on my server Haomarush the day after the patch came out. I was mining ore for my guild bank in Storm Peaks in that canyon between Valkyrion and Snowdrift Plains and remembered that there was supposed to be a new spirit beast around here somewhere. Hit Track Beasts on a whim and lo-and-behold! A yellow dot. Spirit beasts are supposed to be neutral right? Mouse over... Skoll!
He's an elite 80 so I laid down a freezing trap, and popped off a concussive shot. The CS slowed him down but the trap didn't faze him at all. He got me down to a third of my health before I finished taming but in the end, I got him :)
The lightning makes electrical sounds when he's out and when you hit Bestial Wrath the lightning crackles red throughout his body! His size is very big even after he's been tamed, almost as tall as my toon, and when under the effects of Bestial Wrath his size grows to above your head! :) Took him to a few Guild-run heroics and our guild master/tank asked if I had Growl on since he seemed to be pulling the mobs off him, but I never have my pets on Growl in instances so there may be a few problems there.
I was originally told that he's supposed to be on a 6 hour spawn timer. From what I've read so far however, it's longer than that so I was really lucky, especially since I wasn't even camping for him (which makes me feel a little guilty due to all my fellow hunters who are looking for him). One of my friends was looking for him so I suggested the macro
It's simple but hey- it worked!
Good luck to all the BM hunters out there! He's gorgeous and a wonderful addition to my furry family!
EDIT: If you have the addon PetEmote, it seems to take him for a cat because the emote says that he meows and purrs... I just say that Skoll is going through an identity crisis ^.^
here is a video of me taming him south of the snowdrift plains
please dont post hate comments.
I Was the 3rd hunter on Korgath to tame Skoll. I did this with the help of the 1st hunter to tame skoll. Together we learned that.
Skoll DOES'NT share a timer with the Lost Drake and Other rare spawns in Storm Peaks.
We camped Skoll, then Came back shortly after and saw Vyragosa.
As this wolf is a
, he will not only eat meat but also fish. All the other attributes of a spirit beast apply as well so he can
It is classed as exotic and can therefor only be tamed by BM hunter's with the Beast Mastery talent. When using dual spec, this wolf cannot be used as MM or Surv hunter so it stays in it's stable. You won't lose your exotic pet.
I'm not even going to name him, I like the fact that it says spirit beast over his head.
New Spirit beast in 3.2!..
Skin: Blue wolf with lightning effects.
Hostile: Yellow for both ally and horde a.k.a Neutral mob.
Location: Storm peaks
Amount of spawn places: 3 known so far.
I can confirm that the Spirit beast named Skoll does not share respawn time with Vyragosa and by that not with
( Time lost proto drake ) neither.
Vyragosa killed and found: 14:56
Skoll found and tamed: 17:42
Both is realm time..
Skoll ( w Bestial wrath )
Skoll (w/o Bestial wrath )
Download the addon:
Reason: This addon will give you a raid warning and a achievment lookin bar with the portrait of the mob when its around you, this means you do not have to spam a macro or anything to target it, you can stay afk, and when the rare is within range of your characters sight, you get a warning and a sound will be played ( loud )..
It may be more, but these is the 3 known ones and confirmed a found.
But: Me and my friend found both at same places, above Brunnhildar village.
I forgot to mention.
Its a wolf but its not kind of a wolf,
Since this pet got
I find this pet very unique since its the only Wolf with prowl.
But stil, the pet miss some abilities as a wolf.
The fact that a Wolf without Furious howl, ain't good.
But it seems that we got more positive sides out of this Wolf that others.
Its now been spotted Skoll a
FIFTH place in Storm peaks.
Feel free to ask in game for tips

When Im updated, I update this Topic.
Happy hunting !
this post was so unnecessarily long
I am a hunter, survival with dual speccing, and BM as off.
Yesterday (August 9th, 2009) I had spotted Skoll on my paladin, and raced to storm peaks on my hunter to tame it.
Today (August 10th, 2009) I spotted Skoll again on my hunter, far away from where I had tamed it in the first place.
First time I saw it, I had tamed it north of Brunnhildar Village, today I spotted it again south of Snowdrift Plains. I killed it there, dropped
(Of the Sorcerer) and an adventurer's satchel. (Sorry I had to kill it, I had tamed it yesterday, and I want it to stay rare ;] )
I tamed it at 5:00PM server yesterday, today I killed it 1:00PM server.
, Respawn timer is not shared with the other rares, Respawn is probably about 10-20 hours, and the corpse is skinnable.
(Note: I do not have skinning, anybody know what it drops?)
Just tamed Skoll, still shaking. Server, Lothar at 14:45 hours server time. Location 46.65.
I tamed this awesome beauty yesterday night.
I was doing some dailies in Icecrown, when I got a tell from my most awesome friend Pulsars. He said "I'm going to go find you the new spirit beast so be ready to come when I call you."
I said "ok, I'm just doing dailies." you know, no big deal.
About two minutes later. I get a tell saying "COME QUICK. I got him."
I about had a heart attack. Mounted up and hauled ass to the Stormpeaks. I was already in a group when I was on my way there, so I just flew right to where he was at. Pulsars had found him at the spawn point right north of Brunhildar Village. He must have just spawned, or Pulsars has the best hacks :) Either way. I'm STOKED. I might be the first on the server with him. I've been sitting in dal a few times and I get flooded with tells asking me where I got him and how I got him. If he's a rare spawn or what, and I haven't seen anyone else with him on Illidan yet.
When I tamed him, I didn't use any traps or anything. And I did have the most awesome druid with me to ensure I didn't die. :) He does hit like a truck, by the time I was done taming him my health was half way gone :O ! THE coolest looking pet IN THE GAME! And just to show Pulsars how much I appreciated him. I named him Pulsarsjr. heheheheheh! <3333
Just got him 12am ST on Dragonblight EU
Snowdrift Plains 28, 51
Word of warning: Very cool pet but the electrical fizzing noise he makes is becoming kinda tiresome and I've only had him for 40 minutes. I'm on the look out for an addon which mutes it - if anyone knows of one or can write one, please post a link :)
(What's with all the downrated comments? People are posting potentially useful information about spawn points/ times. Okay, spawn times are random but even so, patterns may emerge which could come in handy. I'm not posting this to gloat, I'm posting it in the hope it will help others).
I down rated a couple of the more useles ones but even the useful ones are getting down rated dont get why, but you get a + rating for saying so keke, this gets down rated as its useless
Well, ladies and gentleman, I have some VERY exciting and helpful news to post.
Skoll has a 10-12 hour timer, approximately. NOT a 6 hour timer like many assume.
Skoll spawned for a belf hunter on my server around 2am this morning (Aug 10th) then later today, a hunter in my guild tamed him at 12:23pm (Aug 10th). There was no spawn between 2am and 12pm.
So Skoll is definitely on a 10-12 hour timer.
I hope this is helpful for everyone!
Edit: I will keep this topic updated. I have another hunter friend who will begin searching at 10pm until Skoll spawns. If he spawns between 10pm and 12:30am we have our timer!
Tamed around 10:20 pm server on Ysera at the spawn point at 46,65.
He didn't seem to move more than 30 yards in any direction from where he spawned.
Edit - not sure why someone downranked this since I'm trying to provide helpful info on how far he paths from his spawn point
tamed on earthen ring (eu) yesterday at 20.40 nord of valkyrion
Tamed Skoll on Slivermoon at 30.2 64.6. Took me 3hrs of flying around. 1:23am sever time. Good Luck Fellow Hunters!
The 3D version of Skoll, on this web site, isn't all that great. It doesn't show the lightning effects that it has. And that's cool that they added 3, so far, spawn points for it.
Omg my npc scan found skoll and only to just see a nelf hunter taming him. I nerd raged.
Tamed this beauty as Nayki on Uther a few hours after the patch went live, presumably server 1st, at the 27,7 location
Mac here. First time poster, but a long-time fan and user of this site. WoWHead rocks, plain and simple.
I had been doing a fair amount of research into the fabled addition to the Spirit Beast family prior to 3.2's launch (PTR reports mostly). At this juncture, I had already successfully located and tamed Loque and Gondria (Thanks in huge part to this site!).
After much anticipation, 3.2 finally went live. Not ten minutes following the launch of the new patch, I located Skoll and tamed him. I was the first on my server to achieve this. Which means I was also the first on the server to have all three Spirit Beasts in the stable. A proud moment for any BM Hunter. The instant I hit Org, players of all races and classes flocked around me as they all seemed to have said in unison: "WTF is that thing?" I had the dubious task (and privilege, mind you) of explaining to everyone exactly what it was and where I found it. I was surprised at just how many Hunters were unaware that another Spirit Beast was about to grace the realm with its presence.
Another point of interest: This is important for those of you adamant about taming this amazing beast--
While I believe this one runs a longer re-spawn clock (haven't confirmed this, just a hunch), last I checked it has NOT been added to the list of Rare-Spawns that comprise the 'Frostbitten' Achievement. This Achievement in particular is one of the reasons the feline Spirit Beasts were so damned elusive. Many an achievement hunter out there and both Gondria and Loque are on that list. Stiff competition, to say the least.
That having been said, this should narrow the playing field a bit as far as Campers go. I am aware that Skoll drops a couple of cool items, but nothing I would think any Non-Hunter class would waste their time on. Unless, of course, one grows weary of camping for Mr. Time-Lost, has Skoll in his sights, and decides to kill him out of boredom.
Best of luck to all you Hunters out there gunning to tame this beast. He is well worth the hunt, I can assure you--as are all Spirit Beasts.
PS. I named him Thor--and for obvious reasons.
I was the first or 2nd on proudmoore to get him. I got the Time Lost Drake while hunting for him and 20 mins after dropping the drake I got skoll. That was a good day. I found him next to the frozen lake.
In Norse mythology, the aspects of the sun and moon are pursued through the sky by two wolves. Skoll is the wolf that pursues the sun and, at the onset of Ragnarok, will finally catch and devour it.
Skoll's brother, Hati, will do the same to the moon.
I was actually leveling my warlock when a guildy informed me that he had seen the cat Gondria, after popping over and taming him, I had a wild hunch and went searching the locations of
Lo and behold, I found him right when I flew over the pass south of snowdrift plains. NPCscan found him, and using a modified target macro id made for Loque'nahak to verify ( just in case it was a shadow melded NE hunter...)
Talk about luck... in less than 5 minutes I tamed 2 rare spirit beasts, since I already have loque from a VERY extensive and intensive hunt I currently have all the rare "cats"
Yes, when I saw him I froze inside, Took me what felt like ages to land off course of aggro, drop freeze trap and find where id hidden my tame beast, lol.
The picture doesn't do him justice, in the picture you can see what looks like sparks, well those sparks crackle all through him.
I stumbled on him by mistake while gathering leather, he was in a tree and blended in very well.
The map is correctly marked in each spot, I found him shortly after the servers came up 2:00pm EST, and he hadn't respawned at 3:40am because everyone was going nuts, for him.
I was still in the area at that time; gathering leather when I saw a friend and stopped to chat, I was getting bombarded by "go away this is my spawn spot", "I am going to report you if you don't leave", and hordies were getting pets and naming them stupid names to tell me to go away. All I can think is, what idiots, I already have him, what am I going to do with a second one, I am hunting leather and chatting with a friend. /sigh
He is an awesome pet with a sweet look, but be ready for some rude competition, and put on your thick skin.
He is yellow, so will not aggro till you start to tame him, BUT; people will kill him out of spite (saw several threats of that made).
He also has all of the skills a spirit beast does, meaning he has Spirit Strike as well as Prowl and his focus dump is Claw.
He really doesn't shrink in size much either, he is a pretty big boy.
Another important thing: These beasts are exotic! In order to tame them, you must have the 51-point Beast Mastery talent.
When I got to town and went into the bank, I was instantly spammed with "what is that", "where did you get it", "how long did it take", and a million more questions, so be ready to answer till his new wears off.
here is a video of me taming him at snowdrift plains
on Dawnbringer USA
Amen to that.
I found him in the spot outside Valkyrion after a lot of time camping since patch day... start the tame, and then a rogue came and killed it in front of me... man...
Tamed skoll 8/12/09 at 5am server time on Korialstrasz coords 46,65
i am a auchindoun belf hunter and found this beast on luck tbh ... i have looked up his spawn points before he was on WoWhead and made a nice map for my guild mates and other hunter friends as no one knows his exact walking range
yes he is a spirit beast and ofc you need to be BM even though he looks like a wolf he has cat attacks but just look at him!
he is worth it x3 though i hate having him out when im in dalaran or something ... you have no idea how much spam you will get D: but i was flying about his spawn points and my computer over heated so i had to to wait 4 hours to log back on and omg when i did there he was 31.64 <3
but i proved a nice little map for you and ofc like i mentioned he is a spirit beast so have you frost trap at the ready :) and so glad hes a level 80 elite saves time on leveling <3
even better hes not part of teh frostbitten achivment so gives all hunters a better chance to get him :) i know on my realm there are about 4+ more horde with him
