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).

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.
