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
My S/S didn't get approved but someone else posts several shots with my Skoll, and clearly me in it and it gets approved :(((((
Well since mine won't get accepted, SBHOBBES's picture is my skoll. Chillin in Dal showin him off. : /
Fellow hunters out there... you are so absolutely going to hate my guts for saying this, but... i seriously found this handsome spirit worg only 3 minutes after learning he even existed. This is NOT a joke. I had expected one weeks worth of circling, like it was for me with Loque'nahak, but apparently the Big Guy Upstairs has some sense of mercy.
To the technical stuff... I used the "YOU ARE NOT PREPARED"-sound macro... worked like charm. I also followed this map
... so kudos to the guy who made it.
Ok guys my story is diffrent i just heard about this beast yesterday and Tbh my main is a DK now but for the thrill i wanted to tame this beauty ;)
i charged my self with cafein and i started flying to all the paths that i saw from the peeps comments.
At that time there was only around 5 hunters circulating there, not to drive my self crazy i opened my GF laptop and i started leveling her Pala while looking at my screen hoping NPC Scan will do her job.
After hours and hours i decide to fly along the path spaming my macro and there he was near the Engine of the makers .. no need to tell u what happend to me .. dancing striping laughing and crying ;P
My advice is to go old school spam the macro
sorry it was 4:12 am relam time Lightbringer server
meh, I found TLPD after about five minutes of camping for this guy on my hunter. Had to go farm epic flying for another toon. >_<
downrank from hell inc, whatever
Helped a guildie tame him on Alterac Mountains server, at 30.50 - 10:00 PM server time
27,50, normal marked spawn point, just hiding behind the tree
This mob moves about 5 steps either side of his spawn point.
He does not patrol at all, so just check the 'L' shaped spawn point route.
Easy tame, no frost trap, didnt even bother going max range.
Good luck all.
Edit: Killed him this morning, +20 hrs after i tamed him. This time at 46,65 right by that circular grate thingy on the floor. Again, he just moves a few steps on way then the other.
Times spotted as assorted from current comments -
P.S. Please don't downgrade posts containing "Tamed at X server, Y coords, Z hour".
Skoll just spawned for me at 46, 65 twisting nether EU (graveyard near brunhilldar)
22.15/ 10.15 pm
I almost forgot to drop my current pet and trap and pushing the tame button >< longest 20 secs ever
edit: forgot to put in the time
I'm probably the 7th or 8th in Azjol Nerub.
As far as I remember, here were the spawn times (server time) and locations:
Fri 4:00AM 29,50 (Dirkee, 5:00AM at the Engine.)
Fri 1:50PM 46,65
Mon 2:30PM 46,65
**new** Mon 7:30PM 46,65 (someone not in our group)
Tue 8:30PM 29,50
Wed 5:15PM 46,65 (Vyragosa 5:20PM at Brunnhildar Village)
Thu 1:56PM 46,65 my tame
**new** Fri 11:34PM 29,50 (friend's)
**new** Mon 8:30PM 29,50 (friend's)
1. There are only two spawn points. Skoll pats from the Brunnhildar disk to the Frozen Tombs or cave to the north.
2. Skoll probably pats from Snowdrift Plains down to the frozen lake past Valkyrion.
3. Skoll has his own randomized timer and location.
- threats to kill Skoll while others are taming
- one player going around showing off Skoll just to trigger npcscans of others
- false spawn times whispered or posted in General
- those three bots farming at Snowdrift Plains, they come up at regular times
Skoll spawned on our server at 22:15 /10.15 pm on Thursday.
last time Skoll spawned was on last Monday that was somewhere between 8.30am and 4pm
I remember doing a last patrol before work and i saw a horde hunter camping there he had been there the whole night and when i got back from work he was gone, i checked armory and he got Skoll.(so i know he got it between 8.30 and 4pm)
GOT HIM! Finally after watching for him all day! At about 1:15am server time caught him at cords 27, 50. He is beautiful! Good luck hunters.
Exodar Realm......My girl had been camping this one for 2 days....friend of ours caught it at 9:13am today Aug 14....she camped all day didnt see nething ...she finally tamed him at 11:10pm today Aug 14....so that gives a 14 hr block of time for spawn timers to start working with .....GL all
Tamed Skoll on Friday August 14th, Medivh US at 8:45PM server. Got him at 29,48. NPCscan is a must for him because of the demand for him. It will give you an edge to quickly know he's there and tag him quickly.
I have the other 2 as well and have noticed that since the demand is high for Skoll, Loque'nahak and Gondria seem to be available with less competition. Good luck to all Hunters!
Tamed day of patch at 1:07pm at coords 27.4,50.3 haven't seen him since.
Camping wasn't a issue either since there was only two of us and the other guy was a nelf *snicker*
Skoll is very much a vanity pet since he is not at the top of the DPS pet charts (out of intial testing, out of the three spirit beasts, his DPS was slightly less then both Gondy and Loque.)
The attention he is getting is insane however so definately bring him along on some PUG runs, if for nothing else but the humour factor of seeing people flip. Am finding not many have heard of this spirit beast this time round.
Found him at Garm, at 46, 80ish at 3:39pm. He patted near the mountains.
Someone in my guild had just caught him about an hour before at the Brunnhildar spot. I was heading to do dailies and flew over him, when npcscan alerted me and I nearly dismounted a few hundred feet in the air. I'd been told he had a 1 day cooldown and wasn't prepared for him.
Tamed him today at 8:30am Server Time on Turylon (East Coast) cords 27,50. There was a Server restart in process and spawned 4mins before server shutdown. Man it was close and btw make sure you use frost trap he deals alot of damage. Most hunters on this server that have this pet are horde, i am one of the 1st alliance to tame him. Good Luck Everyone, He's def the best looking pet out there. :)
So, i was skinning with my Druid north of Valkyrion and I saw some guy ask if anyone had seen Skoll a bunch of ppl kept on saying "oh i tamed him a week ago" or "haha your looking for him its a waste of time" and suddenly from behind my back i saw this blue wolf slowly moving behind me i told the guy about it he came took him about a min to get there and, 30seconds later he was tamed and the guy was happy. Co- ords were28.8 50.6 just a few feet away from the place it is marked at the top of the screen. hope this helps :)
Saw him at 8:47 server time Icecrown
Thank you for the Ratings. :*)
Saw Skoll, again, today on the Frozen Lake at about 10:30 PM server as he spawned right before my eyes.
Killed him cause I already have him.
He does NOT pat at all. He has seperate spawn locations, and he moves about three feet from each of them.
Found him this morning while making my rounds. NPCScan is a godsend for those of us looking for rare pets. He was quite easy to tame. Thanks to all those who have taken the time to post spawn points and times. You guys rock! Good luck and happy hunting.
Date: 8/16/09 @ 5:16am server time
Loc: 30, 64 Bor's Breath Storm Peaks
80 hunter ~ Korialstrasz Alliance
The kill may show on your map, but it does not show on other's maps. Again, please stop killing Skoll if you find him. Drenden server has a chat channel, Skoll, with folks who would love to find him!
camped Skoll at 30.64 for about 4.5 hours... spawned at 4:20pm (no kidding) on Nesingwery server.... good luck, happy hunting
Was able to tame Skoll just north of Brunnhildar Village around 9:45pm server time on the Moon Guard realm.
I was so exicted when i find him. i just happened to be talkin to one of my friends on the phone. He was telling me how good he was at snippin games. I saw him out of the corner of me screen. I set a frozen trap but he walked to far from it. So i just tamed it normal. If the channelin had been any longer i would have died lol.
Draka server. Snowdrift plains behind the trees. 1:30am centrel time.
I tamed him today (17.8.09) at the Emerald Dream server 12:20 gametime, at the 27.9, 51.1 on the way from Valkyrion to the Snowdrift Plains. I was gathering herbs, without the aim to find him. When I landed in front of a group of trees next my herb, I have seen blue sparks through the trees. He was walking back and forth at the very small place under the trees at the left side of the smal valley, invisible from the air. I was maybe 5 yards from him and I almost didn´t see him behind the trees.
I immediately went from MM spec to BM, abandoned my pet, filled in mana, and started to tame him. He bypassed my Freezing Trap, but the taming was quite easy without it. I was at the 2/3 of my health at the end.
For ppl using NPCscan - the thing announced Skoll maybe 10 sec after my seeing him, when I was long in mana-filling already.:-) Pretty long loading time, if I can tell.:P
Has anyone actually seen him within like 30 minutes of a server restart or maintenance? Just skimmed through, and I didn't see anything.
Except I did see many people finding him MANY hours after a restart. Would save a lot of time if he couldn't or has a very very low chance of being up when the servers come back up.
I'll be on the lookout to tame this puppy.
FYI, Skoll is a wolf in Norse mythology:
If I manage to tame him, he's keeping his name.
Tamed this beauty at about 5:30 mst on Nazgrel. Was just messing around in guild chat and camping the metal pad spawn point above the village when NPC scan went off. My heart was racing and my hands shaking after I got this tame. My GM already has this pet and now I do.
Named her Tesla, for obvious reasons ;)
Its all about chance, but if you check back eventually you should get it.
tamed today around 2:10 am at coörds 46,64 (the metal disc in the ground north of Brunnhildar).
Had been patrolling spawning points for a week, but then a guildy and good friend spotted it for me and I rushed in.
Good luck to other hunters out for it!
Caught this beauty last night on Skywall server at 10:45ish server time, at the Brunnhildar cliffs "hot spot" (46, 64). Had been camping for approximately 6 days total, and it was completely worth it. The last spawn I can personally confirm prior to my capture of him was almost exactly 24 hours before, when another hunter tamed him and I had missed the spawn by mere minutes. D=
As a bit of advice, offering a reward for him (alive) can be a double-edged sword... on one hand you'll get a lot of people genuinely helping you look, but you'll also get a lot of people trolling you and threatening to kill him.
Anyway, I wish you all good luck in your continued hunting, just keep at it and you'll get him eventually! =)
~Knight Killerdragon (of Storm Peaks), Skywall server.
Just tamed him at 3:21pm server time on Kirin Tor at the 46,65 spawn point (the one at the metal pad above Brunnhildar Village, essentially 12 hours after I gave up last night. While I was camping, I heard from someone in general that their guildie had tamed him earlier in the day... probably in the four hours I was sleeping and not camping. So it looks like his respawn is between 10 and 12 hours?
ETA: Heard from a fellow camper that Skoll spawned at 4:30am the night/morning before I found him, so 11 hours between then and my tame.
Edited to add "PM". That's usually helpful. :P
After 9 long days Skoll fineally spawned roughly 36 hours after server restart... we do know for a fact that he spawned at least 3 to 4 times in that 9 days at the spot we finally camped started to camp after server restart....We never saw the lost in time drake, however 26 hours before Skoll spawned Vyra passed by the same spot where I killed him.
Skoll was EASY to Tame.
I Come from Greymain Server (vary old and over populated server) the ratio to Alli and Horde on my server...Alli is 2X as much Xd so ME being a Horde to get this guy was a big deal.
Found him Just before the drop off of the frozen waterfall,Bor's Breath.
There was Aprox. 6 other hunters camping the other sights and it was around 1:30 AM Server time when..just so happens i flew RIGHT OVER HIM. Silver Dragon (Awesome add-on by the way ^.^) Did its loud "boom-boom-badee-boom" in my ear and there he was! i dropped down...frost trap and POOF! coolest Spirit beast in game MINE! *happy dance*
He has no fear effects or anything, VARY easy tame.. you just gotta be there before every other hunter in the zone drops on you XD.
Took me about 4 days of flying over each sight.
HAPPY HUNTING! to all those who don't have this amazing pet yet he's SEXY! and a chick magnet :p
Tamed at 8:32 AM server time on Kargath (U.S.) after hours of extensive searching.
Was informed by a friend who tamed him yesterday afternoon around 2:22 PM server that the spawn timer was 12-24 hours. Seems it might be set to re-spawn randomly between 6,8 or 12 hours.
Only 45 minutes before I tamed Skoll, I found the Time Lost Proto Drake dead in the valley before Bor's Breath while I was sweeping spawn points.
Just tamed Skoll last night on Medivh server, at 8:34 PM.
I was just flying around the "Skoll-triangle" between the Foot Steppes Disc, Bor's Breath and that Dwarf Cave in the Snowdrift plains while I was looking for Ore Nodes to mine.
I was spamming my /tar Skoll Macro and -BANG- Skoll lights up on in the raid warning as I was flying past the cave in Snowdrift Plains.
He was easy enough to tame. I landed up on the hill next to the cave, away from the hostile Worms and Elementals patting around the area, dropped an Ice trap, popped him with an arcane shot and commenced taming. I always make sure I don't have a pet out when I look for Skoll and that I'm in BM spec so there's no waste of time stabling pets and switching specs. With all the other Hunters looking for him too, it's best not to waste time taming Skoll if you come across him.
He's a decent looking Spirit Beast, although it is rather annoying that he has the CAT skills instead of the WOLF skills. Hopefully Blizzard adjusts that in a future patch. I'm not used to a wolf that can Prowl. Having Furious Howl would make more sense and possibly give BM Hunters a decent DPS boost to actually Raid as BM instead of the cookie-cutter Survival Builds everyone raids with.
I mean - what if they make the next Spirit Beast a Rhino? Are you gonna give a Rhino Prowl? LOL Kinda hard for a Rhino to be stealthed when they weigh like half a ton and shake the ground when they move. But I digress...
Anyway - I think you Hunters who are sub-level 80 should know that Skoll is a level 80 Spirit Beast. I saw a lot of level 78 and 79 Hunters camping his spawn locations - you guys can't tame a pet that isn't equal to or lower then your own level. So make sure you are level 80 first before you go looking for Skoll, otherwise you'll be stuck staring at Skoll and won't be able to do anything but kill him for the stupid Blue Dagger and some gold.
Good luck guys!
Tamed Skoll on Earthen Ring(US) at 3:03 PM server time, Thursday August 20th. He was located near the cave in Snowdrift Plains around 28,50.
Good Luck to my Hunter brethren that have yet to tame this awesome pet. It took me about a week of camping and searching to finally get him.
Tamed Skoll on Drak'Thul (EU) at 6:50 AM server time, Friday August 21th. He was located at 46,60. Good hunting hunters.
For the hunters that are interested in this awesome pet on Korgath server, he spawned at 12 am server time Aug 21th, Loc 28,51
Tamed on Mal'Ganis, 3:32pm server time, at the ledge right above Brunnhildar Village. He spawned right next to the little pad on the ledge.
Draenor, 21 Aug 09, 8:16 P.M. Server, 28 - 50 Coords near the Iron Dwarve Cave in the Snowdrift Plains.
I had been camping the spot just East of Bruinhildar because I knew that's where he had spawned three others times; twice he was tamed and one alliance hunter killed him while another was attempting to tame him at that spot.
I get antsy waiting in one spot so occasionally I orbit the other spawn points. About 8:15 I left Bruinhildar and headed West to the frozen lake in Bor's Breath, turned North from there, got about 50 to 30 yards from the cave in Snowdrift Plains when NPCScan went off. I had usually camped the spot in the Snowdrift plains because the other spots were always camped by someone else. Kind of happy that I tamed him where I camped him the most, even if it happened to be a lark that I found him there to tame.
After that I fired a Freezing Arrow which didn't trip, but I started the tame anyhow, he leaped at me, smacked me a couple times but never interupted the tame.
He shadow melds which I didn't know, had lots to feed him as I had been killing Rhinos or other mobs that patted near me.
I'll probably camp to try and help Shaulada if she hasn't tamed him yet as she was the person who was taming him when the other hunter killed him.
I have to argue this: I managed to catch Skoll, flew up in the air to continue on my way, just in time to bump into Vyragosa who was also flying over the snowfields. Therefore, Vyragosa and Skoll very definitely do not share spawnpoints. And as Vyragosa and Dirkee don't either, I don't expect that Skoll and Dirkee do.... although that's still up in the air.
I tamed him on Eredar (horde) this afternoon, about 3 hours after TLPD was killed. He was right south of the cave in the trees in Snowdrift plains. I have all 3 spirit beats now, along with the Worg from ramparts with the saddle on yet :)
Whatever you guys may hear from the schmucks in your server's SP general chat, do not think even for a second that Skoll shares a spawn timer with Vyra or TLPD. He.
Note: Does not show up in ANY tracking mode. To verify this I took my spirit Kitty Frisket out and went thru all the tracking cycles. Not once did he show up.
Enzo / Alliance Elune
Tamed Skoll just a few moments ago :). ( Sat 22nd of August)
At 23:32pm on Eonar Server (EU). Right on one of the spawn points; the one with the circular pad in the ground, looking over Brunnhilder Village. I flew over and there he was :). Good thing no one else was camping at that time ^^.
When all the talents have been put on, he has the same stats as my Gondria spirit beast. So no loss there.
Threw down a frost trap and bobs your uncle.
I tamed this beast on the PvP ptr roughly a day after it went live on the ledge just above Valkyrion, where a Spirit Healer is found whilst dead.
Things to note - It requires the 51 talent skill in Beast Mastery, it's the 3rd Spirit Beast known in-game, and it can prowl.
Found him on my DK right above the Brunnhildar Village at 47,60. Instead of killing him I decided to look for a hunter that was interested in taming him (for free, I wanted to make a hunter happy). I jumped around kiting him "while we was tapped" with chains of ice making sure no one would steal him from me. Eventually I found a hunter that wanted to tame him, so I invited him to my group and told to lay down a trap, use distracting shot to get his attention and tame him while he's frozen. But, he didn't have Exotic pets talent, and I had no idea that you needed it to tame him. After multiple attempts at taming him without knowing that you needed exotic pet talent to tame him, we ended up killing him by accident. Meh, what a shame.
So, if you want a hunter to tame him, make sure he got BM as main spec or offspec.
Other notes: He's neutral, does not aggro you when nearby. He does not count toward Northern Exposure or Frostbitten achievements and he looks so damn cool.
New information... Skoll does
, I repeat
, share a spawn point with the other rares (at least one of them). I logged in to a rare mob alert, and tamed him this morning at 27,49. But while I was taming him, Silver Dragon gave me a hit on Vyragosa. So I finished taming him, and then killed her right after.
So skoll does NOT share the spawn with Vyragosa. And since Vyragosa
share a spawn with TLPD, I would assume that means Skoll doesn't share TLPD's spawn either.
*sry if off topc o.o* From wut i've read when my hunter is high enough to tame him i'm going to camp him at 46.65 i can't wait to get him! (downrate this if u want idc that much) glad he's not for the achievments then ppl r killing Skoll to give hunters a hard time i mean wut's up with a ton of ppl hating hunters sry off topic again it just always bothered me
Just tamed him on Duskwood server near the blue drakes and the village. awesome looking pet. when i found him i was screaming into vent lmao but sweet looking pet i hope to test him out soon.
Thanks for all your comments.
I'm still shaking, lol, having tamed him at approx 4:05pm server time on Barthilas, at Bor's Breath spawn site. SilverDragon picked him up no problems.
For all those who are trying to grab him, he's awesome, and definitely worth the wait. I'd also suggest that when you do tame him you send out a general chat message so that other hunters know not to bother camping him for the next few hours...
ah but here's a question: does it share a timer with the other spirit beasts? we do know that each beast shares timers (usually anyways) with other rare spawns in their zone, but do the spirit beasts also have a timer between themselves?
also, have spawn times always been on the top and/or bottom of the hour or can they be at any given time? I have only seen Logue once (when i found her and tamed her back around Christmas last December) and have yet to see the other two....
currently I AM going with a 10-12hour time based on a killed sighting of around 8pm yesterday (08/24/2009) by another hunter on the server looking for TLPD... server shut down and maintenance not withstanding if the timing is good he should in theory spawn on eredar server around 6 or 8pm or anytime in between....
update for my last post around 10:17pm as i was flying by gimorak's den near the disc spawn area for skoll, npcscan popped with his indicator but i could not find him anywhere.... :(
Just wanted to pop on here and let people on Gurubashi know I just tamed skoll about 10 -15 minutes (which would be abt 11:30 am server time) ago at the 27.7, 50.4 spawn point.
I was super excited, lol. I landed went to tame him just to be told I had too many pets so I had to quickly pick and abandon one of my other pets, then go through the tame process again, but I got him.
share timer with Loque'nahak!
I was just farming some saronites in sholazar, and there Loque was. I called my hunter friend and he tried to tame it.. but he forgot that he was surv and not BM. (Think you gotta be BM to tame Loque, else it was bugged)
One hour after that, I was farming TLPD in storm peaks, then I saw Skoll. my friend now respecced BM. But he still couldn't tame Skoll (That must have been a bug!)
While we tried to tame him, a god damn rogue named Suntwink, Server Frostwhisper, Alliance ganked us. Sucha imature boy.
Anyway, this was 1 hour after the spawn of Loque'nahak, so they DONT share timer.
(Sorry for a kinda bad english.)
PS. Time 14:15 GMT+1
PS 2. over the frozen lake.
PS 3. If you want to kill Suntwink, I would be gladly to help and kill him too.
Becuase of the fact that most spirit beasts are cats, Skoll does sound like a cat and has cat-like abilites such as Claw and Prowl although he is a wolf. I think Blizzard should change SKoll sounds to sound like a wolf but he is still a really cool pet to get.
hi there, i am looking for Skoll myself, but i have come across a really REALLY good addon that has helped me tame Gondria and king Krush.
its called NpcScan, and its a program running in the backround constantly searcing for rare spawns, (all rare spawns)
this relieves from the use of all these bloody macros =P
i will put up a link to it so you fellow hunters can ease you jorney of getting these nice pets ^^
its really easy to use, just follow the instructions followed on this page.
Good luck in the future.
Zenoxx <Legends> Hunter of the realm kul Tiras.
Skoll tamed on Balnazzar server at 8am PST. Im loving the pet.
Just tamed the new Spirit Wolf 2.0 finally. Been looking forever and a Night Elf hunter was nearby the area, so as soon as I saw it with my target macro, I started shaking, dismissed Gondria, froze Skoll, and started taming while a Jormungar was attacking me. Now I just need a name. :D <3 wolves, so glad he's not another cat.
I've been looking for this guy for 3 days now, didn't even see him yet.
I'm using silverdragon and _npcscan.
Any tips on how to get him quicker?
Thx in advance,
Hey, just got Skoll on Eitrigg. He spawned at about 3:50am realm time near the metal pad just northeast of Brunnhildar. Came back from smoking a cig and there he was just trollin around beneath me.
Figured id mention he is a big head turner, getting compliments everywhere.
Tamed a few secons ago, caped for 7 no-consecutive hours.
9:00 am Server Time at Quel'Thalas.
Killed him 15 mins ago. There was a few hunters looking for him apparently, but I needed the gold :) and it felt good, killing a rare elite!
Tamed at 8.52pm server time, Chamber of Aspects EU. Location 46.65
This is actually the second time I've found him at this location, 1st time I randomly flew over him while questing. Was sadly only level 78 at the time though. This time I decided I wanted to camp him for a while, which turned out to be about 3 minutes before he spawned right in front of me :)
Tamed at 27.7, 50.4, just north of Valkyrion. Skoll does do a pounce so put your freezing trap directly in front of you.
Tamed at 27,51, Sargeras Server, 17:49 Server Time. I was coming north through the valley, up from the frozen lake spawn location, when NPCScan alerted. I couldn't find him at first, because he was behind a group of trees off to the left as you approach this spawn location. Once I located him, I dismounted from my flying mount between the trees and the mountains, away from the mobs in the area, and really close to him. I placed a frozen trap at my feet and started the tame. The trap faded away right at the end of the tame and he was able to hit me once, but then he was tamed. No mobs, or alliance interference, was encountered.
I had been looking for him for about 14 hours, ever since I turned 80 on this server. He now joins Loque and Gondria in my stable.
Good luck to all who are looking to add him to your stable, he is worth the effort. I hope this posts aids you in your search for him. He looks awesome, much bigger than the cats look standing next to you, and the blue color and effects add the finishing touches for this beast.
For all those on the Kirin Tor server I tamed him today at 3:52 pm server time, near the cave at the snow drift planes. Good luck =)
Phew just tamed Skoll on Balnazzar Eu at 13:20, took me almost 40 hours of searching but I finally got it. I had seen him twice in the last days but was always too late, both of those times he was above brunhildar village at 46,65. I got him at the Bor's Breath spawn at 30,65.
Edit: forgot to say that it took 23 hours between the Brunhildar spawns and Bor's Breath spawn was 11 hours after the last sighting.
Tamed on the 31st @3:15am just b4 server main. shutdown.
Cave location ( 27,50 ) easy tame ...named it Lykaon
Un happy hunter >;(
went afk for 2 mins to get a drink come back find his dead corpse in front of me -.-
for thoose of you keeping times was 9.55pm
Saw him at roughly 6:50 server time - Executus, US
Didn't get the tame...
Saw him again, didn't get the tame... >.<
Spawned at roughly 9:40 server time
Roughly 6:50 sever time. Seems to be a 40-50 trend for me
(All of these sightings were at the same coordinates, in Bor's Breath)
Good luck to all!
i tried to tame him today 03-09-2009 but he isnt tamable anymor! too bad i like how he looks with the lightning in his coat...
I just tamed Skoll today at 5:52 p.m. (1752) server time on Dethecus US server "alliance" at coords 46,64 the "silver plate spawn point". I had just logged out there after camping for hours on end, then happend to log right back in to check something and BAM! there was Skoll, npcscan went crazy i dismounted and tamed him, there were several other hunters in the area flying around so they dropped by to see my new pet. I wish everyone the best of luck in taming this amazing looking pet! Any other tips or info i may have or come across i will sure to post on here.
I found him at the spawn point above Brunnhildar Village at 10:40 am
on Sunday, Aug. 23, 2009. I have gotten
comments and questions about him.
A tip I give to hunters looking for him on highly populated realms is this: Whenever you see a hunter looking for him as well, make a deal. Ex. :
If one of us sees him, we don't attack him or steal the kill. If i find him, i'll let you know the date, time, and spawn point. Deal?
If they are reasonable, they will agree. If not, well, whoever gets him, gets him. That goes the same for players of the opposite faction.
Or make a throwaway character of their faction and /whisper them. Tell them the same thing that's italicized. Good luck and happy hunting! :D
lvl 80 belf hunter
(If you have any questions/comments on
Skoll, Gondria, or Loque'nahak, contact me in-game,
I'll be more than happy to assist a fellow hunter.)
Tamed on Bronzebeard at about 5:30am server 09/04 at the spawn point north of Valkyrion. He was tamed again (by me woot) at 11:30pm server at the spawn point north of Brunnhildar Villiage, where the steel circle thing is located.
I tamed him at around 3:05am game time today at 30,64 spawn point. I had been camping the metal disc spot for some time that evening, went for a quick check of others and NPC Scan flashed him up.
A little bit of advice. He DOES hit hard. I'm a Draenei hunter, and thought I would get away with putting Gift of the Naruu on myself and not trapping, as in my haste to try and tame him I was all fingers and thumbs. I probably would have
managed, if I hadn't aggroed a harpy too and I died just as the bar was reaching full. Thankfully, the graveyard is right next to that spawn point, so I ressed up, trapped and tamed successfully. He got some hits on me for about 1800 if you want to judge how hard he hits and I have around 18k HP.
Anyway he's definitely worth the camp, he looks great and I've already had some whispers about him. Also, while farming him, I killed the Time-Lost Proto Drake one night as I was searching for Skoll, so I'd definitely recommend a quick fly over the drake's spawn points while camping this pet.
Tamed Skoll on the Smolderthorn realm 9/4 @ 28,50 right after I killed Vyragosa
I just tamed him right now on Cenarion Circle. He was at the spawn point near all the blue Proto-Drakes. I was using NPC Scan, but it didn't pop up. I lucked out and spotted him as I flew down. 5:33 AM server time, Sept 5th.
holy crap...im on ur server :D
Just saw him and decided to look him up here. Put it out in gchat that he was up and then watched some pally come by and murder him... I think 1000 hunters just cried a little.
Its so lame taming this spirit beast now when theres like 5 hunters flying around there including both horde and alliance. I was so bored when i saw them so i went to tame gondria instead since gondria is more easy to tame and less spawn time. Got it after 2mins for flying
Just tamed him yesterday. Been flying around spawn points for 3 days with NPC Scan. Then I signed on and there he was right in front of me north of Brunnhildar Village. Dropped a frost trap and tamed away. Awesome looking pet. Everyone freaks out when they see him and asks me where I got him. :) Goodluck everyone!
Tamed him at 07:15am Server Time/Coords 46.64 Just logged in this morning and he was there waiting for me.
I've been camping that spot for the last 4 days and flying around his other known spawn points every hour or so but never saw him until this morning.
He does look very cool still not sure if he looks better than Loque though but well worth the effort.
Good luck all and dont give up!
Created this account to share my story.
I found Skoll last night at
3:43 AM (12:43 server)
, but someone beat me to the tame. So, based on the information I gathered across the internet, I made a schedule as to when I should sign on. Roughly 10 hours later, I was able to tame Skoll at
1:53 PM (10:53 server)
Hope this information helps!
found him today and he droped
"Skoll's Fang of the Hierophant"
Skoll spawned 4:20 server time, gnomeregan server 30.2, 64.6. 9/8/09 Tame killed by Feorena 77 mage. Gratz on your epic loots jerk.
Update: Skoll seen 10:42 server time 28, 50. 9/13/09 Tamed. Careful of phased areas as he may lag in showing himself, and drop the trap on your feet and he will pounce right onto it. Good luck and happy hunting. Also, after carefully asking a GM he let me know that "server resets are when we reset instance ids, ratings, and
most other timed events
." (wink wink) So if you're out hunting and the server resets, you may have a much longer wait.
Tamed him after patch just by pure luck. I've seen him a few times since, always when I'm doing my dailies after the reset. I've seen him at all 3 spawn points and it's always been between 2:25am - 2:40am.
Just tamed him at 46,65 at 9:30PM, camped him for an hour.
comes in handy.
I saw a hunter in the inn with this pet so i decided that i would go spec bm so that i could tame him, and less than 5 mins later skoll was mine tamed him at the metal disk.
Wyrmrest Accord Server: 1:43 am Eastern time (10:43 pm Pacific Time)
I had spent...probably two hours sitting and circling. Figured I would go and do some dailies. That lasted about two, maybe three hours. I flew back from Dalaran after making a stop in the old world and figured I would make just one more check. I flew up, and for some odd reason, SilverDragon went off. But Skoll was no where to be found. Shrugged my shoulders and decided I would go and relax on my couch before bed and watch a movie. Was JUST about to head to bed when I decided to check one last time for Skoll. No harm, no foul if I didn't find him. Swooped around from the Metal disk area over to Bor's Breath, nothing. From Bor's Breath I headed to the area right next to the cave where the trees were at Snowdrift Plains at 28, 50 on the above map. I saw the yellow dot before SilverDragon lit up my screen. Dropped down, put Gondria away and tamed Skoll.
My collection is now complete :) Isa a very happy hunter.
After spending weeks of searching for Loque, I decided to also start hunting for Skoll. It took me a few days but finally I managed to find him at 7am EST. I was the only one in the area and so glad that I got up early- which is rare. I'm glad I have him now because you really don't see him with a lot of hunters. I'm sure this will change but for now I'm just happy that I have him. I have Gondria and I have to say it's a tie between which one are my fav. ;) Happy hunting!
Oh, I found him at point 28, 50.9.
And yes, NPCscan came in quite handy!
I finally found Skoll and tamed him on 09/09/09 at 09:49AM @ TLOC 29.9,65.0.
30 hours over 7 days of searching payed off. Be persistant. He does hit hard and jumped right over my misplaced ice trap heh. Stamina FTW.
Got him a few weeks ago on Icecrown server at 7:07 p.m. at the spot where I have found him twice which is the cave in snowdrift plains (seems to be his favourite spot). Oddly enough he spawned exactly 10 hrs after a server restart and after weeks of camping and flying over, I just decided to pop on and there he was! Named him Raito. I have all three spirit beasts now and there is something so exciting about hunting them. Good luck to all you hunters, he is such a beaut and worth the wait.
Just tamed this beautiful boy about twenty minutes ago. Thorium Brotherhood server @ 3:31am, September 10; coords. 46,65. My heart's still racing. :D I was doing some lazy searching in the hopes of randomly stumbling across the TLPD, and NPCscan went off and scared me to death. I don't think I've ever swapped pets out/laid frost trap/dug in my spellbook for "tame pet" that fast. XD I've only seen two, maybe three other people with him on this server, so I feel incredibly lucky that I nabbed him.
Killed it last nite and was very easy to see. Very kewl pet for hunter. I tried to get a friend to get her the pet, but she took so long I ran out of mana healing myself. There was a Horde there that I would of gave it to him, but in my server they like killing very low level characters and his guild have killed me a few times at low levels. So I just killed it before it killed me. So too bad so sad. The server was udated on 9/8/09 should been done around 11 am. I killed it on 9/10/09 at 2:54 am. Time difference 40hrs .54 mins. Giving this information so everyone can collaborate to make a better estimate on spawn time. Here the spot I killed it at
. Hope this helps.
Just tamed him also at Snowdrift plains near the trees. 3:45 PM EST Anetheron Server. Very excited to have him!
Got this pretty thing near the Brunhildar village! its lovley, just missing Loque and I got all spirit beast's!=)
Incorrect. Skoll is
part of the "Northern Exposure" achievement.
It hit me by the look of the spawn time given by other players here, that Skoll seemed to spawn more often at the begining of an hour.
Just when I reach the 80th level, I began looking for my futur pet. I logged out in Stormpeaks in the Snowdrift Plains, and every hour (when I remember to do it :) I checked the three spawn locations. In 3 days in only 7 or 8 checks, I saw him twice. First north of Brunhildar Village. I began to tame him but another hunter came and since he did not manage to tame it either (I would not let him ><), he killed him. I was furious.
Two days later, I saw him in Snowdrift Plains, just when I logged in. He was beneath my feet :)
This time, there were no one to prevent me from taming him.

Woot! I Finally got my Skoll!
After for farming a week,i got him.He just spawned right in front of me.I was about to log off when he came.This is to let other hunters know dont give up.You'll get him,wish you guys luck.He is beautiful.
Got Skoll at 9:20 this morning on Maive at 30.11 64.37 just past the last harpy up against the cliff wall. Go Tauren! Named him Tazer. Camped at the metal disk for about 5 hours until a pally kept offing me, so I decided to head over to the harpy bin and WHAM! There he was.
Feathermoon US relm 9:57pm north of the Village.(alliance)
Was tired from our failed raid then we so dearly failed on, so I thought I was going to take a quick look at Aotana, King Krush, and of course Skoll. Started with Skoll look at started from Frostborn hold. Nothing north there, second area near the cave. Nothing. Then was going to the last spot. was looking at my map
with yellow dots. Then saw a strange dot Ive never seen before thought it was a woundering rino (or crappy druids... I play a druid tho >.>) but thanks to the loving makes of Silver Dragon addon it was Skoll. My heart raced a almost screamed across my house as I tried to stay calm.
I dismounted (luckly not haveing a pet) tamed Skoll was so happy! Named him Ares meaning god of war and beauty. I quickly told my friends as I am sadly a owner of all 3 of the Spirit Beast (one I dont like sorry Gondria lover I dont like him much since I found him just for fun and tamed him... I was very bored) so I was a happy hunter and I still am =3
Good luck to you all! =D
Server: Tichondrius US
Tamed around 9:10 AM EST (this morning)
Bor's Breath location
It's a shame Skoll's attack sound is subtle compare to Loq. But I guess lightning aura around his body makes up for it.
Finally! No regular camping, just checking the three points for a few minutes every night or every other night, so I guess I got LUCKY. Metal disk point, just southeast of the Engine of the Makers. Around 7pm Mountain (6pm Server?) on Coilfang, Horde.
Now to find the best talent builds for BM, hahaa. Did they ever fix Heart of the Phoenix?
Tamed Skoll 30 minutes ago on the spinebreaker server overlooking Brunnhilder village.
Just tamed him on Bloodscalp at the cliff overlooking the town by the disk. Went to make a round over his other spawn points and when I got back he was there waiting for me. :] Tamed at 8:58 pm
I can confirm the above post; I tamed Skoll today at around 2:12 am (server time) on Thrall (Next to the plate spawn). Shortly after (about 3 am) my friend caught and downed the Time-Lost Proto Drake.
Fun Fact: Angry hunters will try to shoot Skoll if they see you taming him.
Just tamed him about a half hour ago :D
After the other night camping his spawn points for over 7 hours seeing him spawn right in front of me tonight by Bor's Breath @ 2:37am CST made me feel lucky as hell lol. All I did was fly around for a quick second and there he was.
TLPD had died a few minutes before he had spawned too :/
Good luck to all of you hunters in obtaining Skoll, he's lovely.
Couldn't sleep during the night, so ended up getting up for work about 30 minutes earlier then normal to look for Skoll. Performed numerous circles around the three points while mining and avoiding the other hunters in the area.
At approximately 0832 EST (server time on Thrall), I came down the mountain side near 46,65 and found him just walking along the area. I quickly hit the ground, dropped a trap and fired a shot to tag him. Then abandoned my current pet and started the taming. Even though another hunter flew by - I was able to tame him right away.
Thus - a couple weeks of searching for him has come to an end. :) Definitely a cool pet. Just wished there were more pet slots available at the stables, as I have him, Gondria, the Hydra and a Zul'drak Raptor for when I raid in Survival Spec. I had to give up a pet I have had since level 20 - :(
After searching for this beautiful boy for 23 days I finally got ahold of him. I had the opportunity to tame him earlier, but when the server lagged an Alliance Hunter managed to snatch him from my tame.
Had just gotten exalted with AD and decided to go cruise around Storm Peaks to look for him. Did a lap of the spawn points with no luck. At the spawn point over the Vrykul village I did a u-turn and went back to the Snowdrift Plains spawn point. When I saw the yellow dot on the map I think my heart almost leapt out of my chest. Silver Dragon and ESN Rare went off next, and I knew it was him.
Landed, dropped freezing trap, and aggro'ed. Even with the Jormungar that lurks next to the spawn point I didn't take much damage and the tame was over right when the trap broke. He's now sharing Stable Space with Gondria, Loque'nahak and Humar the Pride Lord.
I love Skoll so much and will definitely be leaving him as my main pet for a long time.
Tamed him at 1am servertime on Misha.
Fellah (80 BM/Surv Hunter)
Tamed Skoll just around an hour ago one Icecrown server overlooking Brunnhilder village. Camped the place in the morning from 8 till 1. Then back again from 5-9. Simply alt tabbed back into the game and he was standing right in front of me.
He is very easy to tame. Just very hard to find ;)
Got ahold of him this morning, seems to have spawned at the point near the cave in Snowdrift Plains (28,51) around 12:20pm server time. So nervous I forgot to hit Bestial Wrath before abandoning my big white dino, but with a freezing trap it didn't matter anyway. Easy tame.
I saw another hunter land after I'd started my tame, but thankfully they didn't kill him. /salute
The electrical zapping ambient sound is rather amusing. :)
I've seen Skoll four times since I've trained him. Trained him again (2 Skolls!), killed him once, and just watched him while offering him in General to anyone interested. There were no takers (Azjol-Nerub, Snowdrift Plains, 2:10AM-3:50AM (40(!) minutes! )... and to think I camped for him for close to a week!
Looks like there's a low demand for Skoll now. Good luck!
I know this sounds a little hard to believe, but i was gearin down for a loong camp out on Gondrias trail in Zul'Furrak, and was extremely fortunate and ran into her within the first minute :D after about an hour of showin her off to my friends and telling of how i tamed her, i went to Storm Peaks to stalk Skoll real quick before a Naxx run and i could hardly beileve my luck but i ran into him at the the spawn point located at (30, 62) and tamed him as well! I was so excited and could not believe my luck! I can honestly say that it was an amazing night! The realm i play on is Anvilmar :) just figured i might share my story with you guys for a small bit of inspiration :) Good hunting to all those who are hunting these amazing pets, and congrats to all who have already got them!
Yeah, sad but true.
To any hunter who sees another hunter taming the rare creature you want, one of the dumbest things you can do is to kill that creature. By killing the creature the other hunter is trying to tame, you are guaranting that another competitor will continue to look for the same rare creature you're trying to tame for the next few days/weeks. This means more competition for you. And even worse, you better pray to God that when you finally get a chance to tame that creature, you don't run into the hunter you ruined because that hunter will surely return the favor. Even worse than that, word can spread about your previous deed and even other players will deliberately ruin your tame if they see you taming a rare creature.
In the end, if a player screws up another hunter taming, that idiot is basically shooting himself in the foot. Don't be stupid. Let the other hunter finish taming so he can go away and never come back to try to tame the same creature you want, giving you less competition to worry about.
Tamed this bad ass this morning at 930am server time, Lightbringer. Camped out at 46, 64 the previous night and logged on upon waking up to no avail. I had a strange feeling around 930, so i decided to check for skoll at work. Once i logged on, I see Skoll walking right in front of me! For a second I thought it was a false NPCScan alert or someone's pet, but it was really Skoll! I didnt want my co-workers to notice i was on WOW so I kept myself calm, and suppressed the desire to yell out. Laid down my trap and tamed easily. I couldnt believe that there were no other campers around that morning or the previous night. Now i have all 3 spirit beasts:D
FINALLY tamed him! 7am at 28,50 9/21/09 Silverhand server.
Had been camping him so long, i snagged a timelost, and pointed two others out to friends, and killed Vyragosa three times out of spite/frustration, and that little gnome too!
Tamed this bad boy on nazgrel server (arrowblitz) around 9:42PM server time wich is the same time as real for me, He spawned at the Lower right spawn point just above the village in the field with all the rhinos he was moving westward directly towards the brown dais on the ground at the foot of the mountain for anyone who also wants this awsome pet. And be warned as soon as you spot him put track humans on cause i saw 4 other hunters combing the area and like said before they will shoot and interupt the taming in hopes that you will give up and leave.
Just blew a year's supply of luck by finding this guy after less than a total of five minutes looking for him. Got him at the spawnpoint most to the west so I'd guess around 28.3, 50.4, my server is Vek'nilash EU and the exact time was 16:01
After searching for him for a few days now, I finally tamed him this morning. I was getting my kids ready for school, thought I'd check real quick and there he was! For some reason my npcscan didn't go off though. Not sure why, he wasn't cached.
Location: Brunnhildar Village spawn
how do ya get to stormpeaks?
Sept. 18, Snowdrift plains spawn point, 6:10am Lothar-US server time
Just tamed after two weeks of looking.
He was at the Brunnhildar Spawn point, at 7:30am server time, on Muradin server.
Good luck, to all hunters, was hard to find but easy to tame.
camped him for 3 days. I just stood by the disk above Brunhildar village and every now and then flew to the other confirmed spawn points to check. I'd ask in general from time to time if anyone had seen him, tamed him or killed him.
At about 6pm server time (Dalaran), a DK said he saw him near K3, which I'm assuming was the brunhildar spawn, not sure. I marked that as a possible spawn time. And kept waiting.
11 hrs later, 5am server time, I was going to crash so I was doing one last round on the spawn points and there he was @ 29, 50-ish at the Snowdrift Plains.
In my experience of known spawn times on Dalaran, his timer seems more like 12 hrs with a give/take randomness.
hope this helps, good luck.
Skoll spawned right in front of me at 10:22pm on the Earthen Ring server, at , just a yard or so west of the little knoll behind the trees there; if you sit on it, he's well within range of NPCScan and SilverDragon, and you're well out of range of the wandering worms and elementals. Threw down a frost trap and one easy tame. My stable is complete now!
Cords are correct. I found him 46, 65 walking around metal circule. I waited few hours about 5-6(Mazrigos-Eu). Just trap it and start tame. Gl with it :)
Just got my Skoll today (finally) and I'm hoping that this info will be helpful for other players, too.
Based on my research, it sounded like a lot of people saw Skoll respawn after 6, 12, and 24 hours after confirming that somebody else tamed him. This got me thinking that Skoll is possibly on a random timer that is a multiple of 6 hours (so it could respawn 6 hours after, 12, 18, 24, etc. A co-worker told me that Skoll is on a flat 12 hour respawn timer (which appears to be false based on numerous comments by other players and myself... but does fall into the multiple of 6 theory) and the actual spawn could vary by 30 minutes (so it could spawn 30 minutes before or after). I think the 30 minute window is accurate. Another thing I heard is that the server restart will reset the timer for rare spawns.
All of the above added up between when I tamed Skoll, when I saw other people tame Skoll (twice), and our server restart.
About a week ago, I saw somebody tame Skoll at around 7:30pm server time on Silvermoon. A few days ago, our server reset at came back online at around 5:30am. Today morning, I saw somebody tame Skoll at 5:10am server time on Silvermoon. Going by the aforementioned 6 hour respawn timer theory with a 30 minute window, Skoll could next respawn between 10:40am~11:40am. I was sleeping then so I couldn't check during this time. However, I did check back around 12 hours after I saw somebody tame Skoll. When I checked between 5pm~5:55pm, I didn't find Skoll. Going by the 6 hour theory, I camped out around the 18 hour mark. Skoll spawned at 10:40pm, which is 18 hours with the 30 minutes window exactly, after I saw somebody tame it.
Another thing I noticed is that a lot of people seemed to have tamed Skoll at 46, 64. In fact, all 3 spawns I encountered were at 46, 64. It is possible that Skoll spawns here more than at other areas.
Hope this info helps.

After server maintenance a few weeks back, the servers were scheduled to come back up at around 11am (though I don't know what time it actually came back up). A few days after this maintenance, I saw somebody tame Skoll at around 7:30pm server time on Silvermoon. Considering a few days have gone by, 7:30pm isn't too far off the 6 hour mark from 11am.

Just KILLED this baby at 46, 60
should have left it for a hunter but the guy i knew who was farming for it had like uld 25 gear and was a hunter wanting to tame it and Needed a world drop he blatanly didnt need it, so i stole His skoll kill, unlucky for him he'll have to wait another 10 hours or so.
revenge is sweet <3, dropped fang of the sorcerer and the bag with the usual loot.
I use this macro:
/run RaidNotice_AddMessage(RaidBossEmoteFrame,"THERE IT IS! KILL IT!", ChatTypeInfo)
You really can't miss it this way because it sends a Raidwarning :)
Searching still.. xD
Sköll is a wolf from Norse mythology however this Skoll seems to take a form similar to Raijū from Japanese mythology.
Raijū (雷獣,"thunder animal" or "thunder beast") is a legendary creature from Japanese mythology. Its body is composed of either lightning or fire and may be in the shape of a cat, tanuki, monkey, or weasel. The form of a white and blue wolf (or even a wolf wrapped in lightning) is also common.
Got him today on Whisperwind, about 7:05 pm server time, at the spawn point by Brunnhildar village. This was about 2 hours after the last reported tame, so people looking for him may not have to wait 4-8 hours or more.
I ALMOST got this beauty but here's what happened.
I'm a Draenei, on Kul'Tiras server so keep that in mind...
At 12:16 ST I was flying in Storm Peaks checking the spawn locations. I go through Bor's Breath and end up at 30, 65. My NpScan goes off and there he is, Skoll. I abandon my pet, put a frost trap down and start to tame him.
I'm freaking out, VERY happy and then I see Nuitara, a Night Elf hunter from L O N E W O L V E S. He was camping another location. He comes by, and shoots Skoll. I had about a second maybe 2 seconds left on my tame.
So then he starts to tame him. I'm like, "I don't think so" and I try to re-tame him. Finally after we go back and forth for a while, I say to myself, "If I can't have it, neither can you, Nuitara," and I finish him off.
He proceeds to throw profanities at me and asking why I killed him. I reply,
"I was here first!"
"No, you weren't, or you would have tagged him."
So, needless to say, I don't have Skoll simply b/c a jealous Night Elf Hunter named Nuitara decided that he wanted it instead. I don't care if I didn't tag it first, I was at most 2 seconds away from having it tamed! But no one has it now :(
Please, PLEASE if you see a fellow faction hunter taming a rare pet, do the right thing and let him have it.
Day two, 18:15 Server Time
No Skoll, but I did find TLPD around 16:38 server time at 28, 64. I tagged it, started hitting and then stalled long enough for my wife to get online. Needless to say I died, res'd then caught back up with it on my slow flying mount, around 36, 64 where we finally killed it. My wife now has the TLPD and it was a good day. :)
Now I know this is for Skoll so don't down rate this, I've been making macros to help me in the future, and any other hunters out there.
/castsequence reset=10 Freezing Trap(Rank 3), Attack, Tame Beast
This will abandon a pet if you have it, (WITHOUT warning so don't do it when you have your rare pet or another pet you want to keep!), then lays a freezing trap.
Click again to shoot your target. I've been meaning to maybe add Distracting Shot to get a little more aggro on the target I want to tame.
Then click once more and you're taming your new pet! You could easily add in there a potion of speed maybe to decrease your taming time, but this should at least cut down on right clicking a portrait, abandoning a pet, laying a trap, tagging the mob and taming it. No more looking around for buttons or not knowing what to do when your brain freezes up because you get so excited that you found a rare pet! :P
Also after 10 seconds of inactivity the macro resets so if it's a false alarm you don't have to worry about it not working 5 minutes later when you really need it.
So, I hope that helps other hunters out there trying to find and tame those rare pets. Gratz on those who have them and for those who don't yet, keep trying! Even with these set backs, always remember they respawn and you'll have another chance. :)
Just tamed Loque'Nahak!
I was bored with not finding Skoll so I decided to go to Sholazar Basin to look for Loque. He's actually the one I've wanted fora long time. I heard multiple reports of him spawning south of Nesingwary Base Camp and Skyreach Pillar. I've been camping those spots for 2 weeks. That's kind of what led me to search for Skoll last night. The numerous days spent trying to tame Loque got me frustrated and I would get away from SB and search for Gondria or Skoll.
So I was bored and decided to go back to SB and I hit my regular spots and then on a whim decided to go to the other 2 spawn locations to the north. Got to 62, 28 - Nothing. Started flying south got to around 36, 30 and I spot him. My NPCScan didn't go off, but I saw him. I landed and used the above mentioned macro. Worked like a charm!
There was even a horde hunter in the area, but he left me alone. I tagged him and tamed him around 7:15ish at 36, 30. He's a beauty!
So, for you hunters on Kul Tiras searching for Skoll, he's all yours!
Again Happy hunting.
My search is finally over!
I must be the luckiest hunter ever.
At 75 I found Aotona after two hours. At 76, Loque' after only 2.5 hours. Gondria I found within 5 minutes - just as another hunter's tame finished on her. I ended up spending 15.5 hours looking for her :( I expected to spend a similar amount of time looking for Skoll. As soon as I hit 80, I didn't even train - just cleared my cache and went to Storm Peaks. He was at the second spawn location I checked (the northernmost one). The tame went off without a hitch, and I am SO happy! Now to find a name....
Skoll tamed 10/03/09 at 12:00am server time.
ok not sure how many of you are looking for this guy still but i have tamed him today oct, 03 2009 at 5:40 pm server time at these cords 27.4, 50.4 the wooded tree's to the right of the cave where the two worms meet right before you enter valkyrion is a spawn point of his this was done on us server norgonnan so good luck and happy hunting
finally nailed this wolf today at 2am server time on tichondrius. was quite emotional as came at the end of a really rough day for me.he spawned just next to the metal disk and was there as i logged in..nearly soiled myself. good luck gttting him
Tamed above Brunnhildar @ 2:40pm on Eldre'Thalas on 10/04/09
Was on my rogue flying by to do some Hodir dailies and thought I might check there and He was up. Logged in my hunter was in Org O.o... Raced up there and no one around!
Dumb question "sry". Can a MM Hunter Tame?
Therefore, Vyragosa and Skoll very definitely do not share spawnpoints.
What you mean is they are not mutually exclusive spawns. They might still share spawn points.
Wow, thank you for introducing me to NPCScan!
It is THE BEST Addon!
Anyone trying to find rare spawns MUST Download this addon :)
Skoll just been tamed on Silvermoon. at cords 27,8 51,1. just left your guild run for 10man toc hardmode. and let another hunter be able to get loot. was flying to stormpeaks and there skoll was.
npc scan did not pop up before i landed on his side.
Here is was just sitting today in the PTR alone for 3 hours, what a waste. Hes a picture for those fellow neurotic people who feel if their not camping the exact spot their not gonna get it.
Edit: This is the spawn point just north of Valkyrion.
Spent 5 minutes searching for him and tamed him =P I used a macro to do the looking, and found him at 46,65 on Lightnings Blade. Happy hunting!
Skoll is also the wolf there eating the sun, in norse mythology. And its brother "Hati" (That i think we gonna see...) Eating the moon! I really hope that it also looks cool ;) Also gonna tame this1
I just caught/tamed this blue puppy at his favorite spawn spot at 3:22pm EST my time. 10/09/09 I named him Paylag.
" Paylag - Armenian name meaning lightning "
Just killed skoll north of the frozen lake at bor's breath, was sitting there on my paladin camping for the Tlpd and seen him creeping around down there, at first I was was like wtf? Clicked on him and sure enough it was a rare elite. Swooped down and killed him. Very easy as a Prot Paly. Sorry Hunter's.
I tamed him this morning at 6:40 AM, Sporregar server @ 27.7 - 50.0
He was walking along the side of the mountains, near the cave entrance.
I was looking for some days now, at different times and used this macro:
/run RaidNotice_AddMessage(RaidBossEmoteFrame,"THERE IT IS! TAME or KILL IT!", ChatTypeInfo)
Does anybody has a link to the best dps talentspec for Skoll btw?
This is going to be long, but I need to vent some of my leftover frustration.
The day before yesterday, I started camping out Skoll's spawn pount above Brunnhildar Village at around 12:00 am. I had gotten Gondria at level 76 and wanted Skoll too. I haven't seen too many hunters with Skoll in Dalaran, even though it seemed every hunter was after him. Every so often, I would make a fast two minute patrol to the other spawn locations, to make sure he hadn't already spawned and was magically waiting for me. There were 10 hunters on at a time, not including the other faction, most probably looking for Skoll. Out of all the hunters I met, I only met one nice one. I planned to tell him what time I caught Skoll when I did, so he'd know when to camp. He said someone had ninja'd Skoll from him before, and I got the impression he was on the verge of giving up.
I had an aweful time. Other hunters, all Night Elf ones for some reason and I never had any horde harassing me, kept trying to move in on my camping spot. I wasn't rude to them when they began sizing me up, asking me about Skoll and probably checking out my armor at the same time, but I was curt. I was afraid if I was outright rude, and then I found Skoll, that it'd suck if someone I *!@#ed off came by and killed him. One Night Elf even flew down beside me and whispered "EWW your geer sucks u need pvp geer. skoll is gana teer u apart." All I said was, "I don't pvp, but thanks."
It got to the point where I was recognizing other hunters, and people were constantly landing beside me to talk about Skoll, which I found annoying since they were hunters and I was paranoid Skoll would spawn when they were there. :/ The more hours I camped, the more territorial and aggressive I felt, despite /not/ being a guy. So I'm wondering how tough it is for a guy when another person moves in on their spot, and I feel bad for them.
Roughly around 11:12 pm NPC_scan went off! ...but it was a false alarm. I flew everywhere, no Skoll in sight, so I assumed it was some rude hunter running around in Storm Peaks with Skoll. But I still had the 'what if' moments, wondering if he'd spawned in a new secret place and I'd missed it. I'd never even gotten him targeted. I was crushed, because I like to be absolutely positive he didn't spawn and that I'm not waiting for nothing. But if anyone asks about Skoll or the Time-Lost Proto Drake in general chat, you will most likely be greeted with silence, even though Storm Peaks can fill up to 49+ people at a time. Plus if he really was running around, I didn't want to inform other hunters.
An hour later I hit the sheets, because I didn't have the will to look any longer that night. I promised myself I would start looking at around 8:00 pm on Monday and stay up until 4:00 am, since Saturday (the day I started camping) was probably the worst time besides Friday to look. I went to bed and I actually dreamed about camping Skoll. Yeah.
My dog got me up eary at 6:00 am, so I settled down and camped for Skoll until 11:56 am... and my NPC_scan went off! I flipped out, thinking it was Skoll, but it was Vyragosa. I screwed up, but I got her. I went in the wrong direction and lost my /target on her, but then I doubled back and headed for Brunnhildar and there she was, flying over the village towards me. I fly up, got aggro and flew back down to the ledge I was camping at. I called my pet... only to find that my pet was stabled! My 'stable pets' ability was thankfully not on cooldown, so I feigned death, hastily took out a pet, shot an arrow and my pet ran out for the attack, but Vyragosa was too high and wouldn't come down.
So I had to kill it without my pet in the end which was ironic, but she wasn't very strong. Not two seconds after she was down, a Night Elf hunter appeared from where she'd come from, obviously upset he didn't get her. I felt sorry for him until my NPC_scan went off again, saying Skoll was found. Because I looked everywhere and couldn't find him, again like Saturday night, so it could have been him taking Skoll out to spite me. Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions though. /shrug
I ended up seeing Vyragosa again later that day at 6:01 pm, but she was dead. So I guess the rumors are true that she/time-lost can spawn in 6 hours.
I quit searching and went off to quest and such, and came back at 8:00 pm to start camping again. I was prepared to wait until 4:00 am for sure this time. A hunter came and camped the other side of the brown disk, unaware that Skoll spawned on my side my the trees I presume.
A rogue appeared out of nowhere, landed between us, and told us if one hunter started taming the other shouldn't kill Skoll, because that's what happened to his wife when she tried to get Skoll, so she gave up. I'm not the type of person to steal or kill Skoll from my faction or even another faction, but I was wary of the other hunter at my spot when he didn't say anything. He was definitely not afk, as he jumped at random times.
His guildy friend came, but she already had Skoll, so I guessed she was helping the other guildy. I /congrats her, but she ignored me, and the other hunter never said anything to me, like I was scum, since I didn't have all epics like them. What got on my nerves was that she kept bringing Skoll out around me, and I thought she didn't know how rude it was to run around with him in Storm Peaks since it sets off people's rare mob addons.
But after they'd left, to camp another spot I suspected since they were still in Storm Peaks, she came back periodically and brought Skoll out. I think she was trying to cache Skoll up on my computer so I wouldn't get the alert if he came, because she knew I had NPC_scan since she'd asked me yesterday, on Saturday night. I think that's really nasty and low for another hunter to do something like that. -_- I began praying I would get Skoll, just so I would know I got it and they didn't. I began reading a book so I wouldn't be so keyed up and frustrated about my situation.
At 12:28, while talking to my friend, Skoll just pops out of nowhere right next to me while I was looking at my screen. My alert didn't go off, but I was already targeting him, heart beating rapidly and a cold flash of warmth spreading throughout me me. I hit arcane shot, only to have "You have nothing targeted!" pop up. He'd just spawned, so it took a second or two to be able to arcane shoot him. It finally shot, so I laid my frost trap and instantly began the taming process, all the while, surprisingly calmy, wondering if some other hunter was going to kill him before I got the tame off.
The tame completed, and he hadn't hit me even once. Shows what that insulting Night Elf knows! :P Like most other hunters, I was shaking and just staring at him afterward. I wasn't shaking as bad as when I found Gondria, which surprised me because there was barely any competition for Gondria, while everyone and their mama was camping Skoll. I dismissed him and left, so I wouldn't set off anyone else's rare mob addons. Now I've got to help my friend get Loque. :)
tldr: I got skoll on the second day of camping,
