This turtle is a rare tamable spawn with a unique fiery shell.
Beyond Bloody Rare: Vanilla to Cataclysm Rare Spawns
The only item he drops is hilarious:
Crystalline Tear of Loyalty
does anyone know of the respawn time and any other locations (just in case he's spotted some place else)?
You can find him walking around the Sulfuron Spire area, and he is not stationary.
Download this great rare pet addon called "_NPCScan". It is a great addon I would not go without as a hunter.
Also here is a nice video of what Terrorpene looks like and a little more info on him!
Finally an entry on Terrorpene.
I managed to tame after 2 deaths, by using a
Potion of Speed
. That cut the
damage per tick from 10k to 6k (tooltip says the effectiveness of FR is 4 times the norm, so basically I had the equivalent of 360 FR). Level 81 Hunter, I had 2.3k HP left after the tame.
Edit: screenshot added, dinged 82 in the meantime.
This is a rare and sought after hunterpet. He only drops a Tear of Loyalty that vendors for 25g, but I bet if you ask in general chat or so, hunter's will gladly tip a few hundred (perhaps thousands) to tame this Fire turtle. I say this outloud because I have seen a couple of non-hunters camping him unknowingly thinking that he's part of some achievement or will drop a nice Cata-blue.
~there is NO achievement for killing him
~he does not drop a BOE blue item, he only drops a tear that sells for 25g
~he is not a spirit beast, he is a part of the turtle family and operates just like any other turtle, thus any hunter may tame him!
Please if you see him up and you're not a hunter, do a /who hunter hyjal or something, they will likely be very grateful and they should tip you nicely for being nice to them
Please if you are a hunter who gets a /w from someone asking if you would like him... TIP! Make sure to tip at least a couple hundred gold for someone being nice and letting you know about his whereabouts
~Friendly hunter who would gladly tip :)
Wowhead was slow to provide a page for Terrorpene, so you can find some discussion of him on
the Nemesis page
, although a lot of it has been rated down.
From what i can tell he spawns in Hyjal at the eastern or southern most spawn points that are on the map. If you want to go see what he looks like in the game head to Nemesis's spawn point. i camped him for 3-4 hours twice a day, and it took a stroke of luck as i signed in on the 3rd day to find him. got him 2230 realm time for cenarion circle. From what ive been told the spawn time can be any where from 4-8hours. But there is nothing for sure yet. As far as any other spawn points. i have no idea. My guess is there isnt one seeing as he is a Rare elite. Then again who knows. Good luck. He did 10k hits with his fire. A haste potion and recently no superior geared 85 hunter did the trick. OH and the best part...you dont have to BM to play with him. Enjoy. Hope this helps.
Best looking pet in the game IMO. Tamed mine in the southeastern part of Sulfuron Spire. I believe he spawns on the northeastern point then wanders south.
My hunter has completed all the Hyjal quests ... does this mean i have no possibility of taming this awesome turtle as i'm now completely phased? =(
Just nabbed this fella on Hyjal server about an hour ago! Tried it just after hitting 81... got my ass royally handed to me. Quickly asked in general if any healers were around, and surprisingly got a response immediately. After a few flubbed attempts and miscommunications I managed to pull it off! Am now the proud owner of this amazingly cool looking flame-tank:)
My story for getting Terrorpene is quite just a "gut feeling"
Was in SW just selling stuff on AH... And got the feeling "Mmm... Terrorpene is up" I fly down there and just as I got there I /tar Terrorpene and there he was. :) Was very happy. Now to think of a name..
BM hunters can use a core hound's Ancient Hysteria prior to the taming attempt to greatly shorten the channel time on Tame Beast, and spare themselves a good deal of pain.
This coupled with aforementioned Prismatic Potion and Potion of Speed should make a solo tame at 81 doable.
Don't worry fellow hunters, you can tame him with two people very easily, even at lvl 81 and you don't even need 40k hp.
1. Spec into bm, grab yourself a corehound.
2. Have freind pull.
3. Pop Ancient Hysteria
4. Once Terrorpene starts casting, IMMEDIATELY take threat and start taming.
Since his cast is on gcd you will have enough time to tame him.
P.S. Pretend it's a movie, the adrenaline rush you get when you tame this gets intense!
- LOL, btw created this account on wowhead just to say this...
- Tamed on the U.S. server Gul'Dan, 9:07 A.M.
... and now I am twerpin. XD
Happy hunting brothers!
Today is my fifth day camping at the lava pit for him. Most days is the majority of the day on and off, and each night till about 2 server (in the morn) and starting at about 4-5 the previous evening. so 1600 hours to 0200 server, this is a good 8 hour chunk, and I have yet to see him. This is on the server Shadowsong. There are generally 2-3 other hunters just in and out and not there nearly as long as I am. If it weren't for the fact that I see other hunters with him, I would definitely question his existence. Are there any fine tuned spawn timers for him?
AS SOON as I hit post for this message and tabbed back into wow, there he was right infront of me. I popped my macro as follows:
/use Drums of Forgotten Kings
/use Prismatic Elixir
/use Drums of the Wild
/cast tame beast
and tamed him first try at lvl 82! no problem, and all this while standing in lava! I have 46k health, and lost maybe half! all about resistance, and HoTs! EASY to get solo if done right! GRATZ to me! I am excited now! wewt. currently 1130 am server time
Just tamed Terrorpene at 2:24 PM realm time on Earthen Ring US. His burning hatred spell only got me to around 30k hp. If you are 85 taming him, it's not that hard. Awesome model for a hunter pet.
Checked about an hour earlier, with no luck. Was in Stormwind and had to leave in about a half hour, so decided to look for a few more minutes. When I saw something on my minimap I quickly checked what it was and there was Terrorpene. I was so surprised he was up, at first thought another hunter was there, but there was noone so I went ahead and tamed him.
Just tamed today at 2:05 am on Crushridge EU.Terrorpene was walking on the lava between south and central spawn point on the map.Luckily i was the only hunter in the zone.
Yesterday was tamed by another hunter around 1:00 am
good luck friend!
I got him on my hunter as soon as she hit level 81. Immediately I went to what I was thinking would be another Loque'nahak camp session.
What would be my surprise when I spotted him on the radar! I didn't waste a second and asked for help on guild chat, a paly friend came and what we did what that I would use Deterrance and start taming, then when Deterrance faded he would use Hammer of Justice to stun Terrorpene. In the end it worked and I managed to get him!
He's really an awesome tanking pet, I always avoided tenacity pets because they where just too ''plain'', but with those looks he really looks badass while tanking :D
Only problem: I need to think a good name for him aside ''Torkoal'' since it seems all other hunters name theirs that.
Found him about 4:30 am server time. Both of my rare pet addons Silverdragon and _NPCscan went off but one of the addons blocked my taming bar. I wasn't sure I casted tame pet and ended up recasting tame pet and dying.
Flew back, bandaged and healed myself to max health, then started to tame again. He was hitting for 10,000 or so damage and I was at level 85.
Somehow NPCscan didn't loccated it, still I was able to find it thanks to track beast. Casted Tame beast as soon as I saw it. 10k every sec for 3 secs, and I got it. Drakkari 31/12/2010 .... May be my new years wow gift XD
Edit: Any Ideas for a name ?
Please, for the love of all that is holy, do NOT kill this mob when you see a hunter trying to tame it....
Most of us have been camping for weeks. :( Please get your kicks elsewhere.
Does this particular pet require Beast Mastery?
Also to confirm, this NPC's ID is: 50058
27 Dec 2010 - Korialstrasz - Tamed @ 9:07pm
Spawn time is roughly 9 hours, I verified this 3 times.
11:45 ST on Dreadmaul.
A few notes to those hoping to tame: He's huge. Don't strain your eyes at every vaguely shell-shaped object in that pool; if he is there, you WILL see him. Also, his map dot is red rather than yellow, so don't panic every time an herb or a mine pops up.
Just got him at 10:38pm ST after a full 9 hour camp. I had logged in and missed him by just 10 mins. >.<
He is beautiful!
Got him at the southern pool. Around 52 81. I only had a Drums of Kings up as a buff. The Scroll of Fortitude had worn off. I had about 20% health left and that's because I had my daughter in my lap and she kept blocking me from landing on an island to avoid the lava so he hit me with his special a few times before I started the tame.
Good luck all!
Tamed him just now as lvl 81 on Vek'nilash-EU. As already said, he's quite big before getting tamed.
I prepared for the taming beforehand by bringing Potion of Speed, a Core Hound pet active and my paladin on /follow on another account with Resistance Aura active. Set up an action bar with all the right spells in the right order to prevent screwups:
Macro "/cast Ancient Hysteria" (as you can't put pet abilities on normal action bars)
Potion of Speed
Got in range, hit these abilities as quickly after another as possible, and tamed him with over half of my measly 33k health pool left. The paladin resistance aura most likely made the main difference in this as it provides 195 fire resistance on its own (effectively 780 against Burning Hatred), so finding a paladin to help out if you can is highly recommended.
Also, don't worry about getting to max range before hitting Tame Beast, Terrorpene's damage ability is ranged so he'll start damaging you immediately regardless of distance.
can anyone confirm which phase he is availible in? I have done nearly all quests in Hyjal, and am afriad i missed my chance.
EDIT - just tamed him 5:15am server. He spawned at the southern part of the lava pool. GL!
Just tried taming Terrorpene on Dragonblight-EU at 15:12 server time,
all went well until a horde hunter named Vivanne from Club Sweden came along..
She killed it! had it tagged as well and now I gotta sit here and camp again..
Ok so I was up since 3 in the morning, I couldn't sleep, went to bed at 5.... woke up at 7.... went back to bed.... got on at 9, he spawned at 12...
Of course their was another hunter there in the shadows waiting for him to spawn, my husband was sitting right next to me saying "if he doesn't spawn now he might not spawn."
Then bam he spawned. My husband told me to tag him but I just started taming instead and the other hunter started to shoot at him... I kinda knew that was coming but I waited to see what would happen and just as I thought Terrorpene killed the lvl 83 night elf. I called out Arcticus and healed then started to tame him again and got him... My husband gave me a long kiss and we laughed for a minute...
He spawned at the northeastern part of the Spire and he is pretty cool looking... was worth the long wait....
Good Luck guys and gals
Just tamed him on Uther about 10:20 in the am on 1/2/11. Same spawn point as listed above. Got tired of just waiting for a spawn so I fished the Lava pool just above him. Besides bringing up my fishing skill I was getting melted axes that vendor for 5 gold each :) Made about 50-60 gold and broke the boredom somewhat. Not that fishing isn't boring all by itself. He spawned in the middle location of the Lava pool. I did go grab a Core Hound for the buff and having a pet to run instances with while I waited but could toss at will.
i actually had no idea that Terrorpene was tamable until i read this here on WoWHead. so i figured why not i camp him since i was looking for a new pet. and if i was going to get a turtle as a pet why not this awsome looking fire breathing turtle
all i used was NPCscan, buffed myself with Prismatic Elixir and Runescroll of Fortitude to get my HP to 108K. and of course im level 85
i read people saying hes level 81 but i got mine when hes 82
i tamed him with no problem on Garrosh about 4:07am. total camp time was only 2 1/2 hours ^_^
Hello,my name is Foxyfairie from Shadowsong.I actually got terrorpene 3 days after Cata came out at level 81.Only died once and by sheer luck got him on my second try.I only went to check on him a few times for just a few minutes and got him on the 3rd ride over there.He's pretty neat just wish they'd keep the burning hatred with him after he's tamed :l I report on every rare i get and have been waiting and waiting for this website to finally have some reports on him.I waited 5 days and missed him 6 times because alliance kept getting him on my Bloodelf Solaria but finally got him on her too with the help of a very nice priest.Bubble and haste really works for him too lol.Good luck to you 81's because youre going to need a lot of health,good haste pot if you dont have alot and a good health over time potion to help you.I named him Hottie :) (with a slash through the o since he's hott hehe)
I don't know if anyone noticed, but Terrorpene's name is very similar to the turtle-like Terrorpins in the Legend of Zelda series of games.
Could just be coincidence though.
So, there's a phase change on the map.
How do you know what phase you're in? Original or Phase 2.
I only did 49 quests here, just to get teh joust companion. Then nothing else.
So, decided to go for this pet on my newly leveled hunter. I got there at 10AM EST, and just decided to camp. So I had NPC scan and all, and I camped for
. I was doing other things of course, and NPCscan would blair if he ever came when I was doing something else, that way I didn't have to sit there for 12 hours. Anyways, yeah, 12 hours later at 10:00pm EST, a level 85 opposite faction other hunter comes in. 3 minutes later, after going to check if Terrorpene spawned on his north spawn point, I went south to see the hunter with his new Turtle.
Believe me, I was devastated. But what you can learn from this post is:
Terrorpene's respawn is 12 hours+ , or at least
Be prepared if you are camping him to have a small stuffed animal to hit. Not that I did, I was just in shock that I wasted 12 hours camping.
Edit: This was my first post so sorry if I didn't post in the correct format..
Holy crap did I get lucky, camped out for like 8 hours with no luck before giving in and going to bed. Woke up at like 5:30 and decided to hop on and check and there he was, died like 5 times, then asked in chat for a healer to lend a hand, got one and got me a new turtle :D
Just Tamed Mine at 9:45 Server time on Kul Tiras at level 81 wasnt too bad just stacked alot of fire resist gear and went into a bg for a quick GoW and Fort with a throwaway corehound only hit me for 3k a tick :)
EDIT: Putting screenshot up in a bit hopefully it gets in.
Got him @ 8:50am ST. Uldum Server. Nice looking. I'm 85, so no problems taming him.
This has to be one of the most unique non-exotic pets currently available in the game, and indeed the most badass-looking one. He just exhumes menace and yet at the same time manages to look fantastically beautiful. The detail on him is amazing.
I tamed him on my Draenei hunter yesterday and I simply couldn't be happier. Sambas is cool, but Terrorpene is off the charts! No matter how much effort you have to put in to tame this guy, he will be worth it.
One important tip I would give to players who are still looking for him: don't hang around in one spot for too long. Terrorpene gets around and likes to pop up in places where you least expect him. Stay in one place for too long and chances are at the other side of the throne someone's managed to tame him before you ever new it had spawned to begin with.
Pretty sure this info is known to all by know, but an extra two cents never hurts. Spawned today, roughly 3:40 pm PST on Shadowsong US directly at
, just in the center of the lava out of range of Tame Beast (if you are not swimming to get him), and he patrolled all through the lava as marked on Wowhead's map, starting at this point, heading north, then heading south, and repeating his perilous lava drudging. He's also quite enormous, roughly the size of a Core Hound from Molten Core, so he's very hard to miss. I immediately dropped down to tame it, and without fire resist that ability does hurt quite bad. However, in mediocre greens from questing at 85, it's enough to survive with about 10% hp.
Had it ninja killed from me by another hunter who didn't understand etiquette, but it seems to spawn directly on that spot, patrol around, and do his own thing. He never aggroed me until I actually made contact with Tame Beast, so it's safe to say you can just walk up to him without being attacked. That, or he has a very
low aggro range. The loot went to the jerk who stole the tame from me, but they never looted it (as the skinning option never appeared). A sad day, but I learned where to sit and wait for him. Good luck fellow Shadowsong hunters, and good luck to all others as well. Don't steal tames from other hunters either, especially if you were not even there when the other hunter began taming, as it's
just plain rude.
EDIT: forgot to mention, I didn't have any buffs other than Aspect of the Hawk. I was Beast Mastery spec, no pet out, and used Rapid Fire one time before the other hunter murdered him from under me. Level 85 with no help (and no thieves, preferably) is incredibly safe to solo tame. Just don't stand in the lava!
do i need to do any quest to '' unlock '' him? ppl say you need to do some quest :P
Logged in to start camping him, and NPCscan goes off immediately. I look to find him, and there's his dead body, with a hunter who already has him standing next to it.
According to him, he wanted to kill it to see what it dropped since he already had it. If ever I wanted the technology to reach through a computer screen to rip someones face off, this was it.
So after a disappointing WG (hoped to get some easy 100ish honor) I log into my 81 lvl hunter to check for this turtle. I fly around a bit and zoop, npcscan goes crazy. I target it and it's untagged but I can't see it anywhere. It disappears from my screen so I activate track beasts.
I spot it. I land, spawn my spare core hound, hit heroism, i abandon it, start casting tame, 3 seconds later i was dead. I run back and rez, eat food, spawn my trusty chromaggus, cast heroism, dismiss him, cast deterence, start casting tame, 6 seconds later I was dead.
I run back while thinking what I can do next. I was ready to go tame another core hound, I would use misdirection, heroism, cast breathe on the turtle, then deterence, abandon, tame (had totally forgot about herbalism haste) but as I was at 100% hp and ready to go tame the new core hound, I notice Terrorpene was nowhere around. "Did it despawn? Did a lvl 85 land and tame it as I was running back? I should fly around a bit in case it moved further away. But let me check my pets, just in case, you never know.... what is this 'turtle' pet in tabs?.. no way!" I love euro latency :P
I named it Fluffy, because I CAN! happy hunting everyone ;)
okay is it me or are the spawn time confusing?..ive read every post on this guy and yet to figure out his spawn time...1 post got him 5hrs ago and another post right after says 2 hrs ago...So when EXACTLY does this guy re-spawn?...Thought it was 10-12hrs...Now math wasnt my greatest subject in school...But damn .... Even i know those two posts arent 10-12 hrs apart?...anybody?
If you are going to post your tame ..kindly post time of tame please so us FRUSTRATED hunters can figure out spawn time...
Terrorpene tamed at 1:37PM 1/4/11 at 54,80 on Khaz Modan.
I had camped him the previous night from 6:30PM to 4:05AM and am certain that he didn't spawn during that time. I got a few hours of sleep and camped him from 9:30AM to 1:36PM while I worked. I also had camped him off and on over about a week though not with that intensity. He is definitely harder to find than most rares and exotics I've tamed--even with his limited spawn locations. But, he is still spawning after all. He probably spawned just a little south of 54,80 on the east side and was beginning a patrol northward.
I am level 85 and began with 97.4k health. I used a prismatic elixir and potion of speed and ended up a bit under 50%, not too much different than with Ghostcrawler with the addition of the buffs. As long as you have the HP you'll be fine; nothing he throws breaks the tame. Good luck to all still camping. Persistence will pay off.
i found this one around 8:00pm server on Shattered Hand.
been going to hyjal every so often just to see if i'd get lucky and spot him.
maybe my 5th attempt over there and luckily only spent a couple hours camping total.
i was doing laps on the eastern part of the giant lava pit and spotted him at the very south-eastern party of the lava pit heading north, meaning he probably spawned where all the southern most yellow dots are on the map at the top of the page.
tamed him, and he looks amazing.
does good damage, barely survived. wasnt able to tell if u can freeze trap him (didnt know if he was immune or if he just didnt hit the trap)
any questions just ask
I got this baby today, 15 minutes before the server restart @ 5:09 am Stormrage server time. I was standing on a little rock and one-shooted her and immediately started to cast taming. No potions, no fire resist gear... left me with 16% hp, but was totally worth the suffering. :>
Well, I've been literally camping his spawn spots for 9 days now and so far I've only see him spawn once, and lost the tame to two other hunters out there.
That was on Doomhammer EU server at 03/01/2011 - 20.38hrs. So far I still need to see a spawn again. Been camping for serveral hours each day, but no luck for me yet. Offcourse someone could have tamed or killed it, while I wasn't there, but nobody at my server says something about it.
Not here or in trade. So for me it's still camping, and getting me some volatile fire and obsidium ore, because that spawns a lot ;)
Happy camping all, and will update when I finally manage to tame it.
edit 1: Been camping today since around 8am, still no sign of him at 13.55 pm
edit 2: He spawned around 9pm, and I tried 4 times, all kinds of methods, but he kept killing me at lvl 82 with little over 40k hp. I just came 1 sec short or 10k hp ;) So after the fourth time, a lvl 85 horde hunter tamed it.
So he must be on a spawn time over 12hrs. as I've camped him all day. I'll try my luck later on, when I got some more hp ;) but I thought it would be a nice lvl-ing pet. Too bad, I'll stick with my Ashtail for now.
Terrorpene tamed on Crushridge at 5:35 AM PST
The tame was done with less than 40k health, and I finished with just over 500 health.
I just tamed him this morning @ 8:34am on Hyjal. I must say it was the worst experience, so here is some info to help you out!
Terrorpene has 111k health and shoots you with a "fire-beam" causing about 10k damage per tick. The first time I tried to find him, he spawned right in front of me and I died all times trying to tame him. You cannot tame him while in a group if your fiance already has him tagged and his pet is tanking him for you. LOL. To my dismay, someone else came and tamed the turtle since I could not. I was level 83. That was yesterday around 4:30pm.
At 9pm I returned, hoping to follow the possible- 4-6-8 hour spawn period. Not only did I not find him in that amount of time, but I waited until 8:30am the following morning (crazy, I know) to get him (over 12 hours - about 16). This time I was level 84 - nervously, I died the first time from his beam. Second time, I put my brain on and popped my prismatic elixir as well as my deterrence and then bam - I tamed him without dying. I was about 73k health and had like less than 25% health left when he was mine.
Please go prepared, as I was so upset when I couldn't get him the first time. There are also about 50 mil people camping him, so best bet is to keep your eyes peeled and hope that your persistence pays off just like mine did. He is amazing - he has a firey, shiney glow to him and he's a lot smaller than the wild Terrorpene, making him just cute and ferocious all together.
Good luck and I hope it goes well!
P.S. The lower level/health you are, the better it is to stand on a rock and tame him rather than in the lava, because you will take dmg.
as he is immune to traps ne 1 know if hes immune to wybern sting? as hes elite/ rare ide guess so.... but any 1 know?
Spawned & tamed at 3:40 A.M. EST (GMT -5), January 6th, 2011 on Smolderthorn PVP (US) server.
Time camped: 9h 30min. Straight camping, without leaving the spawn point for any reason.
Time between respawn 9h minimum.
Terrorpene spawned at exactly 54.81 in the lava on the southeast side of the Throne of Flame. He began patrolling north toward 54.74, which is a cluster of four small rocks, before patrolling west, along the northern edge of the lava at the Throne of Flame in Mount Hyjal.
The tips to use a potion of speed along with an elixir of 90 resist all, are crucial to any 81+ hunter attempting to tame this. I was 82, with haste food, haste elixir, 90resist elxir, and a speed potion, died once and on the second attempt the channeled DoT was still ticking for 6k a second, on my level 82 hordie Hunter.
For those looking for a quick tame, I recommend the following tips: Don't encroach someone else's camp, offer to assist/stand guard and share the spawn time with them, they will be far more likely to share spawn times with you, etc. Once you are able to ascertain the servertime of the most recent tame or kill, you have a minimum of at least 9 hours before the next spawn, I'd personally go with 8 to play it safe. Any time spent camping before that window, is time wasted.
You will definitely want a potion of haste, and a 90 resist all elixir, along with popping rapid fire, prior to attempting to tame Terrorpene.
He does NOT require Beast Mastery spec, to tame or use.
Hkrannak of Smolderthorn - Beast Master for Life.
Found him today after 2 days in 15:30 server time on Mazrigos.
Took me a total of 4 minutes after seeing him on wowhead to find and tame him. Deterrence and tame beast and that was it (lvl 85).
So like most people do, I was hovering in the middle of his spawn points and tabbing back and forth between WoW and reading comments on here. Well apparently that's the trick to getting him to spawn ;-)
So I tab back and my NPCScan is showing he's found. At first I couldn't find him and thought there was another jerk hunter just hanging out in the area with theirs out (I've had a few false alarms). But then I found him at the northern spawn point. He didn't pat south, like a lot of people have said. He just kind of walked around in circles where he spawned.
I'm only 81 with about 43k health, so I had my core hound ready for taming. After 2 deaths, I became the proud momma of this lovely fire turtle. I lost my core hound during my second failed tame attempt, so I only had the 11% haste my gear had to offer. I popped my drums of the Forgotten Kings and a Minor Magic Resist Potion. I had a total of 77 fire resist and survived with about 10k health to spare. His Burning Hatred hit me for about 5k per tick.
My hands are still shaking! Now to come up with a proper name (I refuse to name him Bowser)!
about 12 am server time
I was camping for this pet for a good 4 hours, another hunter turned up (a troll) and i decided to kill it if he tryed taming it. The turtle spawn and we both tryed taming it, we both dyed and re spawed, then he tryed taming it again and i knew i was losing so i tryed killing it and the troll succeded :( I put him on ignore untill recently, i was camping there again and I took him off ignore and he said he'd help me look for him :) he kept using his turtle to fool other hunters away, still no luck though :(
ON gorefiend us server, camped from 3 am and this post is at 3:28 pm, no sign of terrorpene, i have NPCscan up and nothing cam up as of yet. In terms of spawn timers most of them are wrong i should know. i've been up for 12 hours STRAIGHT just flying about waiting for the spawn will continue to post
> 15 hours have elapsed no sign of this beast
Just tamed the pet on
I started camping her at
realm time on
realm time on
Total camped time
26 hours and 15 mins
(never left once)
I sat at the northeastern spawn point
. Periodically following the rock wall southwest to the southern most point of the lava area
, then northeast to the northern path point
During my camp I spoke with many hunters coming and going from the area, some sporting the turtle already and others looking. One hunter told me she had tamed her's the day before (Jan. 5th) at approx. 1pm realm time. This is 20 hours before I started my camp of Terrorpene. If this is accurate that would mean the wait time between when she tamed TP and when TP re-spawned is approx.
. Now I'm not positive that TP never spawned in the 20 hours between her tame and when I started my camp session, but the math doesn't really support it. Then again TP is a Rare Elite and there's really not much information on her yet so anything is possible.
I hope this helps at least a little bit, I'm sure more so for the players of Draka realm. I'm off to experience the Adventures of
Firelily and her trusty sidekick Ember!
Oh and a special thanks to my husband who had to sleep through the sound of WoW, and even though I know he was shaking his head at the wonder of a wife so enamored with a Fiery Turtle, he still managed to be excited for me when he returned home for lunch to find me bouncing around!
can't you just drop a freeze trap and tame him into it? That's usually what I do, and as long as the mob is crowd controllable (even most raid mobs are susceptible to this method), the Ice trap won't break until after you're done taming.
Got him yesterday, checked all known locations and he was not there, as I was flying away he spawned directly beneath me. Spawned at exactly 53.26-76.63 at 1:15 pm, Aggramar
Awesome looking turtle. Got him 2night... finally. Nasty damage he puts out during the tame. Did'nt use any potions or nothing, 'cause I didnt know he was immune to traps. Totally panicked when he started to burn me to a crisp. Had around 103K HP and had only a second or two left to live when he was mine. Phew! :-) He is a nasty little snapper that one.
Time: Aprox 2300 hrs
Coords: Aprox 55.2, 76.00 walking north, north/west.
Server: Kul Tiras, EU
Called him "Dorit", a Danish person wil probally know what i mean (it's a girls name and is, in comedy, usually what u would call an unattractive, very heavy-set woman). There wasn't any other name for him that was bada** enough I could think of, so "Dorit"...hmm.. Thank Blizz for
I can imagine this being a rather hard tame (and risky with other hunters around) at level 81 but at 85 you can do this blindfolded.
Anyway, I have been after this guy for a while. Between him and Karoma/Ghostcrawler, I figured I'd have Terrorpene first.
I was wrong.
What I have realized is that his timer is completely random between the 9 to 12 hour range. I have personally been at five tames for this pet before I got it and the spawn timers were between 9-12 hours since the previous tame. In between those spawns, the other rare elites did come up, like Blazewing.
Usually after three hours of one of the other rare NPC's spawning in the zone is when Terrorpene is roughly up. Notice I say roughly because it has been a complete cluster ^&*! of a spawn timer for this guy.
I don't usually go on timers but I did for this pet just to see if any of it holds true and it seems its still very much on luck and persistance. Although, I never saw him come up before 9 or after 12 hours. I've had people I know confirm this for me by doing spot checks in the area.
All the times he spawned when I was there, it was at the southeastern spawn point and he moved up north.
I wish all the hunters luck trying to get this pet and not get ganked or ninja'd in process.
Just caught mine on Steamwheedle Cartel at 1:38am, server time. Very happy! ^_^
At 85 you should have enough health to survive. If you're over 85k or so, you'll live. Traps don't work, but Concussive Shot DOES. I'd also suggest trying Wryvern Sting if you have a SV spec, though I didn't think of it myself until I was done, so it might not work. With Concussive Shot he never closed into melee range so I only needed to last through the DoT. 2:22AM server time on Wyrmrest Accord. Good luck! Off to grab Madexx!
So just to make sure, if i'm phased i can still tame him? I've been sitting here for 3 days (on and off) waiting to tame him, but still nothing. :(
Tamed @13:40 On Light Bringer
What a cool pet to add the the collection
Good Luck Hunters!
hi guys im an 82 purebred goblin and just tamed this pet.
how should i spec it for general questing/instances?
im a survival hunter
Hey guys, I have to ask the same thing as Nicoloma18. Im playing at the server Shattered Hand and there is another post from 3 days ago with a guy saying he tamed him around 08.00 server time. Have been logging in and out and flying over the area in 5 days now. Not just in and out, staying for some hours looking for her every time. Since the post 3 days ago I have been camping at the souther parts there ppl says he spawn. This morning I was there from 05.13 to 13.57. flying over there area every 10 min. And nothing at all! never seen any one teming him, nada. So I have to ask u all that have temad him, have u done quests in Mount Hyjal? becouse I start to believe there is a Phase problem
Tamed at 2:43am server time on Boulderfist - EU.
I was level 84, with 65k health at the time of taming. I used NO potions or fire resistence gear. Only boost used was Rapid Fire. Tamed Terrorpene on my first time, with about 5% health left. I could have probably done with putting Gift of the Naaru on myself before the tame though.
9 minutes before this i tamed Loque'nahak too. whoop.
Just tamed this beast, I spent about 6 or 7 hours waiting for him. I gave up and took a break, when i got back on I stayed to fish up a few volatile fires and there he was! lvl 85, little more then 100k hp and I had about 40% of my hp when I was done taming him, I did not use speed potions, deterrence or anything. Just adrenaline.
Hallo everyone! My hunting is over! Tamed her 7.54 at the server Shattered Hand EU.
Will now give u some important info, U can tame her even if U havent done any quest in MH! No hesitation about it! And thats great! I know where she spawn and starts her walk, its close to the quest
! Between that quest and the magma Giant and the lava falls in the southern parts of The Thorne of Flame! She spawned right there and started to move :P dident have time to see her walking so tamed her. But she moves North like ppl said befor. She is big so U will see her but if U are a bit unconcentrated U may miss her becouse the shell blend with the lava :)
Think I know the spawn times now. A mage killed her 14.35 yersterday, have read that spawn time is between 4-6 h if any one slay her and I think its correct, was camping from 19.20-20.5, was afk 5 min and when I came back a NE hunter tamed her... the time was then 20.10 so thats 5.35 hours later. Have also read that the sapwn time is between 9-12 h if any one tames her and I got mine 07.54 so thats 11.44 hours later! Hope thats help u anything!
Im just lvl 83 and had only the buff Mark of the wild on me for the fire resistans. Had the pot
but dident use it. What I did was that I used a Core Hound to get
not sure if that helped anything but still used it and then I used Deterrence. Had around 59k health and with the resistans her Ray attack just did around 7k dmg per sec. She had time to cast it two times but took just dmg for 5 sec so around 35k health lost. Was no big deal :P
Bye bye hope this info will help others and GL!
Need any thing? just ask :)
just watched some asshat kill him :-(
i told him not to and announced he was up in general. the guy asked me why he couldn't kill him and i told him that hunters spend days camping him and that he doesn't drop anything. he didn't listen. then to be a jerk he was like "25g! woot!" a few minutes later a hunter logged on in the same area, so i switched to my horde to share the sad news. at least that guy has an idea of when to check back.
even though i got my terrorpene a couple days ago, it frustrates me that the guy was such a jerk about killing him after i asked him nicely and tried to alert the hunters in the zone.
anyway, in case anyone from my server checks here for a spawn time:
12:50 am server time
southern spawn point
Phasing doesn't matter, he finally spawned for me but OF COURSE there's the opposite faction there to stun the crap out of me and take the kill. stupid alliance.
Flying by @ 10:30 PM yesterday and my NPC scan went off, but he was already dead. Came back the next day @ 10:30 and flew around for about 10 minutes. Didn't expect anything so I was about to hearth, then my NPC scan went off again. Seems like 24 hours, give or take 30 minutes, is the respawn time.
Just tamed this Turtle with lvl 82 Hunter....wanted to post just so people know you don't have to be a higher level.
I stumbled upon him and this is how I did it (as scary as it is):
4 people in zone...just one other Hunter (85) must not have been looking for him.
I was unprepared, I had to port back to Auction House to get Stamina food, Haste Potion (225), even a puny Stamina scroll (wasn't tanking chances) and then I zoned back and he was still there.
Previously without the bought buffs, he killed me 4 times
I ate the food, popped the scroll, drank the Haste potion, drank a Mighty Fortitude potion I had on me and Queued for a random Battle Ground.
Joined the BG after a 4 min wait...Yelled "Buffs"! once I got there. Got buffs, afk'd out of BG.
Clicked on the Turtle then...
I hit Deterrence, Life Blood (From Alchemy), and drank a potion of speed then hit Tame....Bam! got him for my 6yr olds toon.
Being better prepared on the chance encounter would have reduced the chance that someone else in the zone would tame, got lucky...good luck Hunters!
Okay, so here's my Terrorpene story.
Been camping him on and off for a number of days, but the first time I actually spotted him was yesterday morning (1/8/11) when he spawned in his northern most spawn point at 7:58 AM server time. Unfortunately for me, another hunter tamed him before I did, but grats to him on his pet. With a rough idea of when he should respawn, I set out to tame him on the next go around later that day, but I had no idea how long I'd actually end up sitting there before I saw him. I began camping for him just a couple minutes after 2 PM server, figuring that if he had a 6+ hour spawn timer this would be a good place to start. I expected to see him within a couple of hours, but I was far from correct in that assumption. I literally stayed there for 15 hours before I saw him again, when he finally respawned at 5:13 AM server time in his southern most spawn point. I'm 99% certain that I didn't miss him spawn prior to this during my 15 hour camping session or anything like that, as during this time span I was typically sitting in my chair flying from point to point in a loop that took me about 25 seconds to cover the furthest north or south spawn point and then return back to it. If I had to get up to go to the bathroom or grab a quick bite to eat, it was typically for a matter of seconds or maybe a couple of minutes at most, and I had my speakers blaring, parked at the center point, just in case of an NPCScan alert. This was a really pathetic day for me, but as I stayed there longer, I became more determined to not just give up and leave, with each hour passing expecting to see him in the coming hour.
My advice to anyone looking to get him is two-fold. First of all: remain patient, persistent, dedicated, and determined, and you too will have your own Terrorpene one day. It is important to know going into it, however, that if you plan to camp his spawn, you might likely be there for far longer than you anticipated. Provided that my data is accurate and a spawn didn't somehow sneak past me, and I really doubt that it did, he didn't spawn for me for upwards of 21 hours, whereas I hear others have seen him in a mere 6 or so. Either he has a very large variable range of a respawn timer, or there is some sort of population constriction or sharing with other rares, either Cataclysm rares or Kalimdor rares for that matter. Anyway, just be prepared! Also, if you haven't already prepared for the actual act of taming him, I advise you to do that as well. If you're 85, you'll probably be okay, but he'll still do quite a bit of damage to you with no buffs or consumables. It might be worth taking at the least a Prismatic Elixir and/or Drums of Forgotten Kings with you, as the combined resistance plus a little bit of Stamina from those two buffs hugely mitigates the damage you will take. Haste is always nice for faster taming as well, so feel free to bring a Potion of Speed or Elixir of Mighty Speed (or both!) if you're feeling extra insecure about taming him on you're first try, but if you are <85 or are just wanting to play it safe I'd suggest the two aforementioned resistance buffs as being the most important.
Sorry for the huge amount of text and long paragraphs, but I'm hoping this info will help people who are still on the hunt for this wonderful pet. Here's the TL;DR version of important information relative to his spawning activity as I witnessed it:
7:58 AM server time on January 8th, 2011, in his northern most spawn point.
5:13 AM server time on January 9th, 2011, in his southern most spawn point.
21 hours and 15 minutes
Starting at 2:17 PM server time on January 8, 2011, I camped for 14 hours and 56 minutes before seeing him spawn again, and the vast majority of the time I was flying between all 3 spawn points to ensure that I wouldn't miss a spawn.
My level and HP:
85 with 99.9k buffed, ended up with 78% health remaining after tame.
My buffs used:
Drums of Forgotten Kings
Potion of Speed
My abilities used:
prior to dismissing my Core Hound pet, followed by
right as I began casting
, although I'm not sure if the Deterrence even made a difference.
Being level 85, the extra buffs/abilities that I used were probably all overkill, but they definitely helped me play it safe. The single most important thing I'd suggest if trying to tame this, especially without any buffs, is that you engage him by casting Tame Beast and don't do anything else and just let the timer run the course and hopefully you'll have enough health to tank him for the duration of the channel. I'd suggest not standing in lava if you think it will be a close call, but definitely don't mess around by shooting him a couple times or attempting to CC him (which he's immune to), as you'll be taking 10k DPS from his fire beam this entire time. If you'd like to bring a buff or two without splurging, I'd suggest the Prismatic Elixir and the Drums of Ancient Kings, as the resistance from those hugely mitigates his damage and just about cuts it in half, with a small stamina boost from Kings on top of that.
Good luck all, hope this helps!
Bloodscalp restart this morning, camped for 9 hours (thank god its snowing outside).
But got the BAT !
Hydraxis, 9:00 PM Server, 01-09-11, 54:81.
The respawn timer doesn't seem to be specific.
I had it first killed right in front of me by some hunter, (if I can't have it, you can't either!)
Since then I waited the 9 hour like most claimed it to be, camped again from that point until next morning but to no avail.
Finally it spawned later that day, making it total of roughly 40 hours since its last spawn.
During this entire period, npcScan did not cache in any new data regarding Terrorpene, so it's safe to say that there were no spawn/tame/kill/despawn in between the 40 hours.
And boy he does hit for a ton.
Tamed after 3 deaths at level 83 on greymane sunday the 9th at 7:08pm akamagosh the 10k damage is killer lol
Tamed on Garrosh this morning around 7:30 server time. I have just under 73k hp and got him just before I died. Didn't think I got him so I looked for him again, but didn't see him. Looked in my pet list and was relieved that I did actually get him. Now time to hunt Ghostcrawler.
Was pretty dang hard to survive his onslaught. Survived with only 10% of my health left (( all thanks to me wife who healed me at the very last second :D ))
He spawned at exactly 05:03 Server time Wyrmrest Accord.
Cool lookin pet. Happy hunting guys!
well 3rd day almost down for my hunt of this sweet lookin guy...hopin for the post and spawn....
Tamed this beauty on Feathermoon at about 11:13pm server time. I've been camping for about 20 or so hours over the last few days.
I had been camping at the middle spawn point, doing other things irl to stay productive and poking the space bar every so often. Occasionally I'd go and fly across the other points, but most of my time was spent at the middle point. Tonight, I was just talking to some guildies and checking my email and whatnot, when suddenly I got a feeling that I should do a quick loop around. And what do you know? As I approached the southernmost spawn point, NPCscan honks at me and there he is below me, beginning his pat north. I flew down to a rock, hit him with concussive shot, popped deterrance, and began taming. This dude hits HARD, as most people here have said. Hit me for 10k a tick with his burning hatred, pretty impressive. I survived with about 25% health at level 85.
Just tamed this turtle on Drak'thul at 1:15 server time. I was lucky since two other hunters were sitting at the spawn point, I died, hearthed and came back and the other hunters were gone. So I retried taming and died, but got the turtle.
Level 81 Hunter, used a speed pot, prismatic elixir, and a scroll of fortitude.
Just tamed him now on Azuremyst-US at 11:40 server time. He was at the northmost spawn point. A word of warning, he does an attack called "Burning Hatred" that will zap you for at least 10K per tick every couple seconds while taming. Even at full health as a LVL 85 hunter he got me well below 50% during the tame. Come prepared to either try and trap him or with a health potion in hand.
Named him Bowser. LOL
So I camped Terrorpene Last night for 7 hours before i realized it was maintenance tuesday. After servers came up i went there and nothing i have been camping since then and nothing. How exactly does a maintenance affect a rare spawns timer?
Found him 6:28 server time on Aegwynn. Unfortunately I wasn't camping for him at the time and didn't have any potions or elixirs, so in desperation I asked for a guildy to come and heal while I tamed. While trying to get people a Dwarf hunter came up and tamed him in front of me, then immediately hearthed away.
Don't do what I did. At the very least; TRY the tame even if you don't know if you can do it.
logged on at 10:02am UKtime Quel'thalas as soon as the server went back up and didnt find him anywhere and i was the only person there. is it confirmed or rumor that maintenace spawns the rares?
Tamed him on mal'ganis at the southern part at 4:50am server.
Then went over to twilight highlands to do dailies and not even 10 mins later tamed Sambas. Its been a good morning so far.
im gonna say its rumor that the restarts/maint. spawns the rares...i was on 15 mins before restart and have been on since they went back live and nada =(
Just tamed this bad boy.
Time: 2:35pm Server time.
He appears to be on about a 10 hour spawn time. I talked with another hunter who had tamed him at around 7pm last night which meant he had spawned at about 5am this morning and was a right on time at 2:35pm. Btw I was lvl 81 with 33k hp used a Prismatic Elixir and a Potion of haste plus Ancient Hysteria from a core hound I picked up in Hyjal. I finished the tame with 10% hp left so it is possible.
Best of luck to all you Hydraxis hunters. :D
P.S. I caved and named him Bowser.
Had left my toon parked near spawn area and would occasionally log on and take a peek. Hadn't checked in a couple of days...but this afternoon I logged on...and there he was! Tamed 1/12 on Alterac Mountains server at 3:30PM server time. Spawned around 54,77. Good Luck!
It would seem that when he uses his Shell Shield, there is no animation for it. Unlike other turtles which cover themselves in the golden shell, Terrorpene simply gains the damage reduction with no visual effect. Kind of depressing, but still an amazing pet that always catches peoples attention.
tamed at 1:07am game time on quel'thalasEU server. he spawned right underneath me at the right hand side of the spire in the corner (facing away from spire) directly underneath the letter I on the world map at the edge of the lava.
i managed to find out from two other hunters who had tamed him on my server that he had spawned monday 8am then tues 3am. so just from these 3 tames his spawn timer looks to be around the 20 hours mark give or take.
lvl 83 BM hunter used ancient hysteria from core hound, elixir of mighty speed, prismatic elixIr, drums of forgotten kings, scroll of fortitude. popped rapid fire, hyperspeed accelerators (engineering, gloves) and ground plasma shield (engineering, belt) which absorbs 18k dmg.
took me about 3 secs to tame him with all this and took no dmg thanks to my belt shield.
engineering ftw! yr not a true hunter without using FD and jumper cables!
i think using all of the above was a little overkill now ive done it but hey ho i got him :D now to think of name that is still original XD
I just now successfully tamed this pet, and I hope this information helps someone. lvl 84 with 71k health, used a speed potion and a prismatic elixer concussive shot and finished the tame with 50% health.
ZulJin server, began camping at 4:30 am, EST until server reset at 8:15-8:30 am.. picked back up the camp as soon as server came back up, constantly flew over known path with npc scan. at 7:00pm he finally spawned. which was 14.5 hours total camp time and 10.5 hours after server reset. he spawned in the southern pathing strip almost directly across from where the quest dragon is killed on the cliff.
Just tamed him on Undermine Server. Level 83 Hunter with 57K health. Tried 4 times with a couple people healing me and the tame cast bar kept stopping, not sure why. So I loaded up on the elixirs mentioned a few posts above this one and tamed him first try. If you are not 85, I strongly recommend coming prepared with the elixirs and such.
The Secret to tame these kinda beast is as always you log in into the game go to the location, to make thing easier, before you log off go to the location of the pet, if it is there good if not, log off, when you log in again, maybe it will be there. I got Terrorpene, and Sambas, in 2 days this way. Nice hunting!
Lifeblood................. I hadn't thought of that.
The 5% health, reminds me of king krush. Didn't want to kill it, but didn't think I could tame it solo at 3am. Somehow I did. I'm just glad I wasn't conscious enough to realize how bad it was going during the tame.
****By omgitzrick 15 days ago (Patch 4.0.3)
Just solo tamed at 81, still in half crappy Northrend gear.
Disposable Core Hound, Lifeblood (herbalism) and a Potion of Speed. It was touch and go but the tame went through with me on about 5% health.****
Do you know what the last part of it's name means in spanish?
I have been camping him on Destromath for over 5 days now and i have only seen him one time and another hunter beat me to him. Does anyone know the respawn timer? ive heard 4-8 hrs and 10hrs and 24 hrs. I hope he spawns soon :/ my luck seems to be realllly bad
Just tamed him at 5:03pm ET on Nathrezim! Level 81 hunter with ~35k HP. I used the Drums of Forgotten Kings, Runescroll of Fortitude, Prismatic Elixir, Potion of Speed, and Deterrence (in that order). Still had around 20% of my HP left when I finished the tame. Most stressful tame I've done in a while! Worth every bit of effort! He looks awesome! As stated by others, it definitely pays to be prepared when you're looking to tame this guy, especially if you're level 83 or lower! Good luck and happy hunting!
I can't believe it! I logged in at 7:58 server time to just see if he was up. He wasn't. But at 8:00pm exactly he was! He spawned right on top of me and Burning Hatred crushed me before I could react. I flew back, rezzed, ate to full health, hit tame and 10 secs later, the turtle was in the stable!
Server: Kilrogg - US
Time: spawned and tamed 8:00pm server EXACTLY.
I just tamed Terropene at 8:55p.m. Medivh Server time this evening.
I also saw him tamed by someone else last night at 4:05pm Medivh Server time.
Based on that time frame, I would assume he has an 8 to 9 hour respawn rate, as others have suggested. (He probably spawned around 12am or 1am overnight also, which fits the time frame)
Nasty bugger - he'll range-attack you with a red laser-beam type breath weapon that does exactly 10K damage every 2 seconds, non-stop. The attack is called "BURNING HATRED" and it's all Fire Damage.
Never got a chance to Freeze Trap him because I dropped it at my feet and he never got in range to set it off. I have no idea if he's resistant or not - check the others who tamed him for that info.
I had 99.3K Health at level 85, so I survived the taming with about 20% Health left.
Also - check your NPC-SCAN. I cleared my cache right before logging in and I logged in right on top of him - NPC-SCAN did NOT alert me - I just saw the Red Dot on My radar and it was indeed Terrorpene, the hostile Rare Elite Level 82 Beast.
I have the latest version of NPC-SCAN and OVERLAY installed and for some reason Terrorpene did not sound an alarm for it. Luckily, I spawned almost right on top of him.
Also - he was walking around several feet OUTSIDE the green box that OVERLAY marked on my map, so check to make sure you zip around those green boxes on your patrol routes incase Terrorpene takes a little longer walk than marked on your map.
That's it. Thanks guys. Hope this helps.
Confirmed respawn time of around 10 hours. I just tamed it! At around 5:20 am at Andorhal.
First met him on 11pm Wednesday night, I and another hunter were both trying to tame him.
But both of us kept dying because neither of us had potions. But the other hunter successfully got him by calling his Shaman friend. I think Shaman has a "Fire Resistance" totem that can reduce fire damage. I was sooooo sad when he got him.
Anyways, I heard some people saying it has a respawn time of 10 hours. That means 9am and 7pm of the following day and 5 am the day after. I missed the 9 am and 7 pm. But when I logged on around 5am this morning, I thought why not gave it a try. Then there he is!
I am a lvl 83, 57k health, used a lesser flask of resistance, an elixir of mighty speed, and Deterrence.
By the way, it seems there are few seconds between his first wave of "Burning Hatred" and second one that he doesn't attack you at all. That perfectly gave me my last few seconds to finish taming. So if you survived his first wave, you are good to go.
If you have a pally friend, divine shield also can help. That's what I used for taming King Krush.
You first put on divine shield and then start taming.
Good luck guys!
Tamed him yesterday morning around 9am CST Stormrage server. After reading the posts on here i decided to ask a druid friend to mark me and HoT before the taming, worked great didnt even get close to dying. So if theres any druids in the area just toss them a message and maybe toss a tip at them.
Hello, I posted a comment further back, about losing Terrorpene :( But guess what? I was fishing for fires 2 days ago and BAM, who might I see in the lava, the sexy turtle ive been dreaming of since the mean troll stole him away, it was 21.40pm UK time and no other hunters around, i used my Ancient Hysteria and dismissed my corehoud( one from BWL, that i had just tamed with help of my pally friend, we soloed raid) and downed a battle exlier speed potion and started taming, very speedy tame and hes finally mine, 4 mins later and another hunter turned up, i guess it was just my time :) and a few mins later i won the Black Drake from OS3D 10 man, I guess i was just lucky :)
Map is perfect - he spawned on the eastern side and started heading north.
Non-elite, easy for a lvl 85 in heroic gear. Didn't need pots or anything.
Also notable: After taming, he is lvl 82 (not 81 as it says here!)
Just to confirm the spawn time is around 8-10 hours.
Today, I just came out of an instance and my npcscan just went off at around 2PM. Saw a hunter just taming/finish to tame it. He tamed it at the southern part where the lavafall is.
So I thought I would come back and try my luck later this day.
Came back to the spawn place, mined 1 mine and npcscan went off around 10PM. Before I found him I did made a spin around the spawn places, mined and npcscan triggered. It spawned at the northern part for me. I saw him walking in lava, so found a stone to dismount and tamed him. For me, he spawned at the northern part of the lavafall (that's where I found him).
So I guess he spawns randomly at any place.
I was the only hunter there at that time though soon afterwards another just came by (think i was lucky) told him that I just tamed it and he left.
Had no time to make SS as either you get it or others will.
Well good luck fellow hunters and don't give up but also don't waste too much time on it as I did .
I was dam lucky with this pet. I was first farming volatile fires around throne of the flame when I saw him walking though the lava on my shaman, and thought that be great for my hunter. I quickly switched to himm who was 5 bars of 81, who I quickly leveled him, came back trying to tame it, only to find he ticked for like 10k damage every second on my hunter.
A healer friend on his lv80 paly came and helped me, and after some deaths trying (since he needs to be agroed on me all though the tame in order for it to work) we did it.
Some things you must be aware of. He can not be iceblocked, he's immune, and like I say, his range beam attack does 10k a tick each second. It seems it can be reduced with resistance, so make use of your hunters aspect of the wild and any resist potions if you have any for this. And you need to keep agro on you at all times to finish the tame.
i wasn't planning on even LOOKING for cata rares for months. after a few turtle god quests in Hyjal, i was lovin Tortolla and commented that i should tame a turtle in his honor. i get a wild urge to check where his spawn points are, and i update my macro.
first trip over the lava, and he pops up. never found a rare i could tame so easy! (i always find them when i'm too low level!) i almost lost him because i couldn't see him, my hubby found him though, and i promptly died many, many times (82 bm with 45k life, he killed me in about three ticks of that laser). i called out in gchat for a healer, and, because my guild is awesome, in just a few minutes i had an 85 rogue, 85 dk and my husbands 85 lock patrolling overhead to make sure i wasn't disturbed (pvp server), and an 85 pally ready to heal. the pally had a heckuva time with lag, which resulted in quite a few death timers, two or three of them full 2 minute timers :P but the pally reset his modem during what would be the last 2 minute timer, and i tamed him with i'm pretty sure, full life after that, honestly, i kinda froze for a few seconds, with the pally still throwing constant heals on me....i couldn't believe that i already got a cata rare XD. tamed on detheroc roughly twenty minutes after being found around 6:20am server. i was so grateful to our healer that i named the turtle after him ♥
Tamed today @9am - Wildhammer EU.
I´m lvl 85 and tamed it without any issues, but he took 60k out my health, 6 ticks of 10k fire dmg.
/ Furblow - Wildhammer - EU
i tamed it at 11:30 am
Tamed at 2:25 am shadow council server. In one of the previous posts someone mentioned that it's a good idea to try to tame, even if you don't feel you're ready or have enough HP. Good idea.
I'm a new level 81 and have more than one account. One the other I have a druid that I knew I could use to heal, if that would work. I also have a friend with a druid that could help. But timing counts here too. This beast is not always there. Many people recommend using the prismatic elixir. I checked the AH and there were none. My hunter is an herbalist and my druid a alchemist.
I began to send the druid herbs to level her- maybe to make that elixir. I had my hunter in the area where terropene spawns and I had finally made and sent the prismatic elixir (to my hunter).
The turtle spawned. ( I've spent a good 2 days looking) NPC scan did not pick it up even tho I entered the number wowhead had for it.
I had a stam scroll, the prismatic pot and some potion of speed.
I clicked the scroll, then the elixir and then the pot of speed.
I was not frantic or excited with this pet because I didn't believe for a minute it would work. My druid was still in dalaran at the AH. Not to mention the very real possibility of other players who were 85, taming it much easier. I was quite sure this was just practice.
I watched my HP shoot down as I watched the tame bar finish.
I was amazed to see the tame bar finish first. I had maybe 15% life left.
As far as armor and what I had or did not have, my character is "Elsah" on shadow council. Check it and you'll see I have some new drops and what is left from wrath. I don't raid so my armor is AH and created.
I suppose it is possible to tame this guy at level 81 and 46 ish K health points. I would think the prismatic pot and the speed pot ( lasts 10-15 seconds orange one) did help.
No one is more surprised than I am. After reading many of the posts, I didn't think it could be tamed at 81, and even then, it seemed like a tough tame.
I am not sure if it spawned as I sat there, but it did show up with track beasts. It also seemed to first show in the south area, but then it seemed to warp to another spot near by, but would have been way out of taming range. I did think at that point someone had tamed it because I was taking a good 10-20 seconds to decided what to do and then how to do it. So if it seems to disappear , look again.
In the long run, (or short run) if you see it and want it, take a chance and try a tame. Especially if no one else is there, you might get lucky.
Although I would carry some pots such as haste and magi resist.
Be somewhat prepared. You just never know!
Tamed him at 55.3, 75.3
Found at 8:05pm on Illidan.
Only had to spend an hour looking for him all up. :D
Just tamed on Dragonblight at about 2:39 AM server time.
I'd been hovering on my flying mount about midway between his spawnpoints, checking back very so often since about 7:30 PM server, and doing an hourly flyabout. Figures when I go AFK to make myself a late dinner, I come back to him patting by right beneath me, northward from his southernmost spawn point
Like a lot of people I panicked and tried to tame right away without using any of the preparations I brought with me. Being only 82, that didn't work out so well. He was still there when I ran back to my body, though, so I took the time to pop my prismatic pot, eat some stam-boosting food, and get lifeblood, my speed potion, and deterrence hotkeyed.
Second time was close, but went much better with everything being used. Just in time too. About a minute after the tame finished, a dwarf hunter swooped down. If I'd died again, I would've missed out entirely. Now to think of a name :D
Advice for people still hunting who haven't seen him yet, he's really big and moves fairly slowly. VERY obvious mob. Don't worry about missing him if you're not right on top of his spawn points. Also, he stands at whatever point you aggroed him to hit you with his 10k-per-second beam, so make sure you're in a good position to tame (close enough for tame beast and preferably not in the lava) before tagging him. Good luck, everybody!
finaly tamed him :)
reading the comments above, my experience is:
first spawn: sunday 8.35am - killed by another player
Garr spawned 4.40pm sunday
2nd spawn: monday 0.25 am - killed by another player
so after this I comed back around 7 am and waited for him. 10.40 am Blazewind spawned, I killed it, and 12.40 pm, exactly 3 hours after Blazewind, Terrorpene spawned on the southern spawnpoint. (Ive read someone comment, that he spawned exactly 3 hours after other rarespawns, it worked for me too)
Good luck for everyone, who still want to tame him
I was lvl 85, didnt have any problem with the taming
Levadászlack - Arathor EU
Ps.: Its suprising, that no one have pointed out: during the waiting, you can fish up Volatile Fires from Pool of Fires. During the camp according to Fishingbuddy I fished up 521 Fires, in my servers AH I could sell them for 20g each - so its a nice profit, and you wont bored during camping :)
Woot caught this guy at 7:40am realm time on Gundrak - spawned right under at that time. I didn't know he had a range attack and popped a freezing trap down lol, at 85 he got me at 50% health without using any special buffs/pots.
Just got him, Moghski, malfurion, 5:30 pm est time. 5.5 hrs camping SCRNSHOT:::
I just tamed him on Zul'jin at 11:57 am server time. Been camping this guy for several days. I used the prismatic exilir which reduced his 10k channeled damage to 5k-7k ticks. He spawned inbetween the north and south spawning points that someone had listed.
Server: The Venture Co. (United States)
Date: January 19th, 2011
Just tamed Terrorpene a few minutes ago -- I'd say it spawned around 8:45 AM Pacific, at the easternmost among the various points marked on the map here. (Sorry -- I was in a frenzy and couldn't pause to note the coordinates.) Tamed at about 8:52.
Having studied the comments here and elsewhere for two days of camping, I thought I, as a level 82 hunter with about 44K health, could manage it (barely). I had my Prismatic Elixir, some haste gear, a haste potion, and various HP buffs, Lifeblood; I used Deterrence and tamed from the maximum range...but could not quite tame the beast before dying. NEARLY, but not quite; very frustrating after several attempts. Luckily, a wonderfully helpful paladin took pity on me and healed me through it. I was almost hysterical with glee when I saw that monstrous turtle shrink before me and its nameplate turn green. :D
I feel like I could have been successful if I'd just had a few hundred more health, and if I hadn't been so tired and agitated from the wait and excitement. Whatever the case, it would have been close. Don't be overconfident like I was.
I can add nothing to the discussion about Terrorpene's spawn times, because it could very well have appeared and been tamed or slaughtered the two times I needed to stop for rest. All told, though, I camped the Throne for nearly two days and only saw this mob once. I am now a very tired but exhilarated and THANKFUL hunter!
(edited for grammar)
Tamed him at 7:15 server time (CST) after 15 minutes of camping - Place was crawling with hunter - no fewer than 6 - I almost hearthed twice but was waiting for a raid to form. Then there he was! Southern part of the NPC scan - but he spawned right in front of me. I landed on a rock and started taming. Then another Horde hunter (lvl 83) started in on him. I was lvl 85 and found it odd that the taming created a fire beam (his damage beam I'll assume). I was uncertain at that point what was going on so I then attempted to tame him again. We both died. I flew back and started again only to have it broke by the other hunter again. We both died after a bit. I then had to wait about 8 painful seconds to revive this time. I then started taming him again and for some reason got him really fast. At this time the other hunter was typing not so wonderful things in general chat about me stealing him. Turns out that the guy &*!@#ing was a new hunter that started taming him when we both died - I just thought it was the same ass that took it from me to begin with - but with everything going on and being I initially started taming 1st I don't feel a bit bad.
Wish I would have captured the whole mess to upload to youtube.......
Just tamed him! Found him at 54.3,81.1. I saw a hunter with him last night on moonrunner server. My hunter is horde, Kilrogg server. Since I had some time to kill (at work) :) I logged on at 2 PM server time and tamed him at 2:05. Sorry to all the hunters who have spent a ton of time looking for him. I spent 5 minutes! I only rub it in cause it took 1 month to get skoll:( I still have nightmares about that:( Any ways, good hunting! Almost forgot, he does 10,000 damage per tick. got me down to 50% health then bam! He was mine. Didn't use any buffs or pots.
Psykotic troll hunter Kilrogg server
after 5-6 hours of camping him i finally found him just as i was about to log.
roughly around 53,81
he spawned about 10:50 pm server time (Stormreaver)
be careful he does hit like a mother^&*!er
Tamed him on Korialstrasz server at 10am server. Took me down to about half health with no buffs on. He looks great! Been looking for 2 weeks, glad I finally got him. corrds were around 52, 82. Good luck to all.
First of all, let me say that the Thottbot and Wowhead comments have been such an incredible help for practically anything you might not be familiar with in the game. I've meant to make an account to add helpful comments for so long, and finally decided to stop putting it off. Terrorpene deserved better. :) (I'll have to go back and leave my gruelling story of the Loque'nahak camp as well.)
Basic info for the campers:
-Standard, 85 BE, MM/BM Hunter
-approximately 10 hours of camp time. (7pm - 5am server)
-Exact spawn time: 5:07am server, the morning of 1/20/11
-Previous known spawn time: 5:00am-ish the morning prior.
-Spawned, not caught patrolling, at 52.5 / 83.0 (for those of you with coordinates)
-with 97k hp, no buffs or avoidance cooldowns, taming completed with approximately 10-15% health left.
-I've seen a couple posts that said he did not trigger NPCscan. If it's after 1/20/11, and you have the latest version, it should. I know it did for me. Just make sure he's not already cache'd.
-remember, this is one of very few rare beasts with a unique skin that ISN'T exotic, so it doesn't matter what spec you're in.
-Overall loot from the camp: Terrorpene tamed (obviously), 22 Savage Leather, 20 Savage Leather Scraps, and 437 Volatile Fire.
BEAST LORE (tamed at 85, making these stats for him at 82 instead of his 81 level as an npc):
167 ARCANE resistance
Diet: Fish, Bread, Fungus, Fruit
Tamed Abilities: Bite, Shell Shield, Cower, Growl
It being in the turtle family, makes it a Tenacity pet, able to learn Taunt and Thunderstomp and such, and make a great tank pet. I haven't had the chance to compare him with Uhk'loc, but one's 82 and the other's 85, so I have yet to see.
I'd seen hunters come and go throughout the evening, which kept me on my guard considering his spawn region is so small. Keeping an eye on the area, and knowing that my NPCscan or macro I was spamming would scare the bajeezus out of me, I kept flying in small circles from the bottom of the outer crescent, to the northeast corner, then west towards the inner pool. I had never bothered leveling my fishing on my hunter, yet knew that Volatile Fire's were fishable where I'd be camping, so I decided to train my level 1 fishing skill, and purchase the wimpy rod from the vendor. Thankfully I did, and approximately every other complete circle, I passed over at least one respawned Pool of Flame, landed, and fished it up quickly, landing me a total of 437 Volatile Fire by the end of the camp. Since my hunter is also Skinning/Leatherworking, I took advantage of the people that were finishing the questline there, where they had to kill the one dragon. Skinning this after people had looted and flown away (respectfully leaving them the chance to skin their own kill), landed me the leather and scraps listed above. Not that it's anything major, but hey, anything to kill the time and be productive during a long camp, right? About a half hour before the end of the camp, a paladin came through every now and again to fish up a couple fires or mine a local node, and mentioned that she had caught Terrorpene around that very same time the previous day, and let me know that the center of his patrol path wasn't too far north of his spawn point, so unless I was flying in a circle collecting fires while she wasn't there, I hovered at that point. We spoke for a while, and I gave her my tips on Loque'nahak and Skoll, and minutes after she said she had to log for a short while, I'm fishing up more fires, and BAM! Lo and behold, who spawns right behind me? You guessed it. :) So, since i already had my pet dismissed (seeing as there's not really any fighting to do there), I quickly landed near him, hit Concussive Shot for a quick daze, and began taming. Range doesn't matter much, as his main ability as an npc is a ranged attack that ticks for approximately 10k per tick, and he can't be trapped, so the best you can do (if necessary), is pop your cooldowns and/or use a corehound's special before dismissing it, and tank it as best as you can. About 20 minutes later, the paladin came back online, noticed that I wasn't there any longer, and asked if I had caught him. Of course I was elated and told her I did, and with that spirit, she decided to go sit and wait for Skoll. The most common spawn point for Skoll is at the disc just north of Brunnhildar Village, on the edge of the cliff, and after about 5 minutes of her sitting there, he popped up and was hers! Incredibly enough, after all that, we both had our new pets and met up to talk in Org for a few minutes before we both decided to log for the night.
Good luck to everyone out there who wants him as a pet. I hope this post helps! :)
Got him this morning at 630am ish server time. Spawned last night around 7pm ish too, but I stepped away from the comp and some stupid orc huntard got him.
Server: Frostwhisper EU
Time: 02:30 Server Time
Tamed as an 81 hunter. 31kHP with a Prismatic Elixir.
Had to log my second account and get my Priest to Hyjal quickly to bubble my Hunter before the tame, even with the elixir, the Burning Hatred was ticking for 5-6k, I kept dying about a second before the tame finished (Had no Potions of Speed available, only managed to acquire a Prismatic Elixir because I am an Alchemist and luckily had the skill and mats with me)
Even with a PW:S from an 81 Disc priest, I managed to tame with 3kHP left. Lucky.
Story time. Tried taming 2 times before I read about the Prismatic Elixir. Tried taming again with a still died. Had a 2minute res timer by then, was literally bricking myself just knowing someone would come along and kill/tame him whilst I was waiting to res and flying my Priest from Nordrassil. During my time as a ghost I saw an 85 Allie Lock land, ready up and start on Terrorpene. I thought to myself that was it, my chance was lost. But when I saw his health drop 10% after 1 Tick of Burning Hatred, and Terrorpene just wasn't taking any damage, a smile brightened my face. Several seconds later the Lock was dead, my res came up and my Priest arrived.
Healed, Buffed, Tamed, Smiled like a kiddy at christmas.
Just tamed him on Destromath at 12:32 pm. Camped the eastern-most spawn point and he was right there. Had no troubles at 85 with crappy blues.
Tamed him at 7:06am est on Eonar
Tamed him on Korialstrasz at 55,73 on 1/23 about 6am pst
I tamed this little fellow on Aman'Thul, exactly 12 hours after I watched another hunter tame him. I was 82 at the time. I first tamed a core hound for the ancient hysteria buff (abandon after you pop buff), drums, and elixir. I still had 25% health after tame with no isues. After taming my turtle my daughter decided she had to have one as well. He spawned for her exactly 14 hours (to the minute!) after I tamed mine, so spawn time seems to be very exact as far as the minutes go, just random hours. 12 & 14 hours confirmed here. On a side note, after my daughter and I tamed ours, my wife decided she wanted Terrorpene too. We had high hopes after 2 succesfull tamings in a row however, just before what should have been his spawn time, there was a server restart which completely seemed to have screwed up his timing. We waited 4 hours past when he should have spawned but no luck. So server shut down and restart definately messes with the spawn time. Good luck to all who are trying to tame him.
Edit: I must be VERY lucky from everything I am reading. Within a weeks time, I have tamed him 4 times for all of my and my wifes hunters, and my daughter has tamed him once for her hunter as well. Two of the tamings were pure luck, both found mid-morning just wandering on his route with not a soul in sight besides me. Spawntimes I can comfirm are 12 and 14 hours for the 3 I timed and activly camped. Hope this helps. Good Luck!
Terrorpene has been tamed! after 2 1/2days of camping
7:55 pm ST, Realm: Dethecus
spawn point: 54.9,76.8
at level 84 was no problem, popped a haste and resistance potion incase, only got me down to 50% health.
Tamed 07:00 ST Kor'gall
Ended up with about 70% hp left, np at all as lvl 85
Tamed @ 1:22 EST - Rexxar US
So i've had some bad luck with rares lately, but today that changed.
I head to Hyjal just to get some rep stuff and I decided to fly over his spawn place and have a look, Sure enough there he was on my minimap. :D
His channeled ability is a 3 sec long 10k per tick hit. I literally had 100~ hp near end of tame. Close call :)
Best of luck to the rest searching.
Tamed on Vashj-EU at 18:31 server time.
I'd afk-camped him while watching telly the other day with no show and was levelling my DK in Hyjal today when I thought I'd check to see if he was up, and bingo! Hurriedly hearthed my hunter, used my Lunar Festival invitation (score!) to get to Moonglade and flew to the Throne of Flame desperately hoping that no-one had killed him. Flew down next to him, hit Deterrence, popped
and tamed. Took me from 111.3k health to 42.2k (level 85, my SV heroics spec). Abandoned my Shattering model
that had replaced my previous
from Dustwallow Marsh since I won't need 2 turtles ;).
To hunters all around!I found today terrorperne after 1 day camping at the throne of flames!using the npsscan!he is amazing!just in front of sulfuron spire!He is doing a lot of damage!so b careful!I am 100k and he left me with 10000 health!find him and take him!GOOD LUCK!
Spawned at 2:10 am server time on Skywall, while I was circling overhead. Saw him at 54.0 x 78 walking right through the lava, I always expected him to be on islands, but not so. I landed on nearest island to the right of him.
Popped deterrence before tame, I'd say I was at 35-40%health at end of tame starting at 103K. His laser beam actually ended and he started to close the distance to melee.
Good luck !
Spawned at 11:04pm server time on Undermine. NPCScan did NOT pick it up, however, it did go off at 9:15pm server time, apparently there was a critter sized turtle that set it off, but I don't know. I was afk camping when I saw him walk in front of me. I'm a level 85 hunter, just geared enough for heroics, and he took my health down pretty low. I had to use Gift of Naaru to help, because he does do a lot of damage. I don't have carbonite, so I don't know the exact coordinates, but he spawned next to the little 'cubby hole' looking area (the eastern most spawn area) in the lava.
Good luck and happy hunting!
Ugh, I realize that nobody cares, but it's been one hell of an awful day, and this was the perfect ending. I've had my hunter parked in the lava pit on the lookout for this pet for nearly the entire time since Cataclysm came out. I just like the way it looks. I've been up late dealing with some really depressing stuff today, and logged in (to Steamwheedle Cartel) before going to bed just to see... And there he was! I was flying over, so I immediately landed and started to tame... But in my haste I'd landed in the lava. Between that and his attack I was killed (I was so, so close...). Fortunately the graveyard is close to where I saw him, so I immediately came back and rezzed to try again. But a shaman(? not positive) named Androis (Tuskin Raiders guild) is now attacking him. I asked him several times to stop, thinking at first he was trying to distract the turtle until I was ready (he had seen me make my comically disastrous first attempt, so he knew what I was doing). He won't stop, but Terrorpene (what a name) is slowly killing him, so I keep trying to tame. And then another hunter, Namisa, shows up and is trying to tame. I continued to make my attempts, only to have her decide to just kill the turtle and leave. I am so frustrated. I just wanted to lay it out there for people that might understand why I'm upset about an imaginary turtle in a game.
Tamed on Gilneas-US @ 20:00 ST on 1/25
Have been trying for Terrorpene for the last week and he finally spawned at the southern most point of his route near where the "kill the dragon" quest takes place. He is huge so there is no chance that you will miss him. He killed me twice as I was trying different strategies which included tagging him first with a ranged attack and using various potions and spells. My advice is to just land on a rock close to him and
start your tame before he starts his laser attack
. Only used a Flask of Steelskin and was at half health when the tame was done. (I'm level 84 with 75k health.)
Tamed on Earthern Ring- US @ 9:45 A.M.
Logged in to see if Garr spawned so I could get a group but nope. Went over to pick a cinderbloom where I usually camp him and no sign of him. Went over the the other spawn point and saw a giant turtle. I al;most screamed. Within 15 seconds of my seeing him he was mine!
Some small facts
-Ice trap does not work
-does about 10k damage
Happy hunting :D
Tamed at level 81 with 35k health, Prismatic Elixir for resistance.
Popped Ancient Hysteria, dismissed Core Hound, Popped Potion of Speed, And tamed.
3 deaths before this, 1 shot with it.
If you need a corehound for Ancient Hysteria, they are very nearby.
Just tamed him on Firetree @ about 11:45 am server.
Just flew over to his spawn area and saw him there, dropped down and dismissed Skoll, started taming and got him. Still had about 25% of my HP left when I was done. Cool looking pet.
Good luck everyone.
Exactly how often does this spawn?
Has anyone tried freeze trapping Terrorpene?
Caught on Kel'Thuzad at 8:08 PM server time.
First time I saw this npc I couldnt believe it.
Thats because in my language, "pene" indicates the male's reproductive organ.
That is not amusing.
Tamed this AM, 6:10 AM server time, Kargath realm.
Camped her for 4-6 hours every day, for about a week and a half. Saw her in the process of being killed by a horde rogue on 1-22 at about 2:45 server time, then missed the spawn by about 1 minute, and the oppurtunity to tame to a orc hunter later that evening about 9 PM server time
Some information on spawn timers: I saw her corpse at 6 PM server time on 1-26, right on the bottom left part of the fire pool on the map, near the fire waterfall. Waited until about 1 AM, and no spawn. Got up early this AM, watched her spawn exactly at 6:09 server time at the same spot I saw her body yesterday. I have read spawn timers ranging from 8-12 hours, but assuming she did not spawn any other time since I saw her the previous evening, her spawn timer was around roughly 13 hours. I camped a solid 12 hours over the weekend and never saw her once, which may confirm the rumer that a longer, up to 21 hour spawn timer may be accurate.
NPC scan DOES pick her up and she does show up as a red dot on the minimap, but does not aggro when your in close range, unless you attack her first.
Word of warning, she hits HARD. I have close to 98k health, and she burned me down in seconds on my first tame attempt. I only used deterrence prior to taming. Luckily, the graveyard was close by, and I was able to run back, and heal myself enough to attempt 1 more tame. I saw several horde hunters swooping in, so I ran after her in the lava and less than half health, and started taming. I got her with 10 health left on my meter, barely. The second time I used no special technique, just hit tame.
Pretty girl, and so glad to have finally found her. I searched for her longer than any of my other rares.
I named her Cinder.
Best of luck to all who tame her. She is beautiful.
The spawn time of this creature
certainly can be more than 12h
. I've been camping today since 9 AM (when it was tamed - I just logged on) and haven't seen it yet (now it's 9 PM). NPC Scan went off about an hour ago, but it was Blazewing.
For me this is the hardest experience of searching for a pet. I'm not going to give up but honestly starting to despair of success.
Finally tamed her at 12.35 AM after 15.5h of solid camping. She spawned on the southern spot just in front of me and killed my poor hunter))) But I quickly ran again and tamed her without any problem.
OMG, I can sleep now!)))
Good luck to all of you!
The pet looks really awesome, so keep trying!
I guess I got lucky, as NPCScan picked him up as I was taking my magical dragon ride into Hyjal for the first time. Of course, there's no way to interrupt that, so I was taken all the way to the first questing hub and had to fly back. Fortunately, no-one else was about, and he was just wandering around in the lava minding his own business.
Forgot all about preparation in my haste to get the tame done, and ended up dying simultaneously with the end of the tame. Fortunately, the tame must have finished a fraction of a second before I snuffed it, as he was in my arsenal when I checked. I think this is probably my favourite rare pet so far... the skin is magnificently detailed.
Tamed at 1:28 PM server time on Dentarg US!
He's such a beautiful pet and is well worth the wait~
Just tamed him at roughly 12:45am as a level 81. Had Drum of Forgotten Kings, Prismatic Elixir, Ancient Hysteria, and Haste Potion. Took only 4k ticks and ended up with around 21k health left out of 42k.
Was a breeze with all the buffs I had but was scared due to multiple level 85 Hunters around me of the opposite faction.
(Blackrock) Started camping yesterday, camped about 8 hrs. While camping, decided to lvl fishing. Left to go learn the next lvl of fishing in Org, came back, he was dead 10:25pm server time.
After reading posts, started camping again the next morning 12 hours after last spawn time. Waited a couple hours, spawn'd and tamed at 12:42pm server time.
Spawn time was about 14 1/2 hrs. South spawn spot. Looks like it spawns south and walks north in the lava.
Sambas here I come!
Jadenar server 745pm server time
Tamed him around 53,74. He was walking in the middle of the lava so i fond a spot near him where i could tame him. No need for potions or anything. My health is 106k and he did 53k damage to me before he was mine. He is awesome looking turtle!
Level 84 Survival hunter here. I got him just a little while ago at 1:42 a.m. ST on Nordrassil server.
I actually got caught unprepared on this one. My initial sighting was at about 1:36. I was fishing up Volatile Fire in the area, when I turned my camera to scan for more pools, and there he was, ambling along in the lava near the giants.
After being a little miffed that NPCScan hadn't made so much as a peep to alert me, I nearly panicked at first because I knew I might need Prismatic Elixir & Potion of Speed to make the tame easier, and I had neither in my bags. So I quickly hearthed to Orgrimmar, hit up the AH for what I needed, then ported back to Hyjal. Luckily, the little guy was still there. I tracked him to about 55, 77, set up on a rock, popped the elixir and the potion, then went to work on the tame. I have 79k HP, and he only got me down to about 55k by the time the tame was finished, but I was still nervous as hell since there were a couple of Ally players watching. Fortunately, they weren't in the mood to ruin my night and let me get through the tame. I /saluted both of them, lol.
Anyway, I pretty much got stupid lucky on this one, especially since I wasn't even looking for him. But good luck to those still trying to nab him! He's such an awesome-looking pet, and is completely worth the effort.
Maybe I will make someone angry, but I just caught it. From realising "I can´t live without it" thru "Lets look it up on WowHead" to "*catch!* MIIIIIIIINE!" it took me ONE HOUR THIRTY minutes.
I swithed on Track beast, wrote macro /target Terrorpene and fly and fly and fly around.
- It spawned on the southern point
- I was lvl 85 and didn´t use anything special, just tame a beast.
Good luck hunters!
Camped on and off for about a week. If anyone is camping this, I recommend you farm Volatile Fires in the meantime. They are selling extremely well on my server (Tortheldrin).
Also, if you fools name him anything other than Gamera, you're foolish.
I tamed this guy at around 5:35PM/17:35 server time on Wyrmrest Accord. Of course, I couldn't do it in the first few seconds because I forgot I had another pet out, but after dismissing him, feigning death to start over, healing up, and weathering his damage, I got him!
Just though to share my good experience with everyone here, and also give a little time data to those on my server. Good luck for the rest of you!
Fun fact (also posted on the page of the following mob; just though I'd share here, too) : Around 14/15 minutes before getting Terrorpene, I also snagged up Sambas. No joke.
Well thnks to all for the info finaly tame him at 3:35a.m -6 UTC 31/01/2011
Some curious things. when i tame "Terrorpene"... i went to zul'drak and "Gondria" was there.. so i tame her too.. then fly to storm peaks and find "Vyragosa" and more curious..when i came back to ogrimar the _NPCScan pop up "Blazewing" so i went to mont hyjal and kill him ...
Conclusion if iu are looking for tamin a couple of exotic beast when iu find one its more probable to find another one.
Tamed 12:39:07 EU sylvanas
He spawned right infront of my eyes as i was tabbing between wow and school work in school.
I poped anchient hystaria + dismiss pet+ my potion of speed+speed elixir and because i was so rushed i pressed my prismatic elixir long befor the GC was off. so i started tame him with deterence up and 58k health with only
Elixir of mighty speed
Potion of speed
since i didn't have the prismatic elixir up i was doomed to die, That sayd the same sec i died he was also tamed cuz when i died he disappeared right in front of my corpse.
With my whole body shaking and my class m8 laughing their ass of at me i corpse runned fast as hell back to my corpse, ressed and checked call pet, and there was a picture of a turtle and a used slot that was free befor. Call pet and a fire turtle came out with the name "turtle" =p.
Happy hunt to all of you going for this guy, and remember to actully use your prismatic elixir!
I just found him and witnessed an alliance druid kill him.
Why do people do this. Ugh.
Was finally able to tame this beauty :) Level 83 Night Elf Hunter (in a mix of Cata blues/greens).
I had periodically checked over the last four days around the clock 3, 6, 9, 12 etc.. with out any luck of seeing him spawn.
9:26 ST Nathrezim (US) server is when I finally tamed him.
He wasn't there when I logged off at 8:30, but I checked back at 9:20 and he was, which I'm assuming he spawned either at 9 or 9:15, and I'm guessing the latter of the two.
From what I read on Wowhead, I enlisted in a paladin friend for some pocket heals and fire aura. I previously had attempted to swoop down and tame him real quick out of sheer desperation but found out he hit just too hard.
Without Fire Resistance Aura:
"You suffer 10,000 Fire Damage from Terrorpene's Burning Hatred."
"You suffer 10,000 Fire Damage from Terrorpene's Burning Hatred."
"You suffer 10,000 Fire Damage from Terrorpene's Burning Hatred."
"You suffer 10,000 Fire Damage from Terrorpene's Burning Hatred."
"You suffer 10,000 Fire Damage from Terrorpene's Burning Hatred."
With Fire Resistance Aura:
"You suffer 2000 Fire Damage From Terrorpene's Burning Hatred. (8000 Resisted)"
"You suffer 5000 Fire Damage From Terrorpene's Burning Hatred. (5000 Resisted)"
"You suffer 4000 Fire Damage From Terrorpene's Burning Hatred. (6000 Resisted)"
He was patrolling from back and forth on the east side of the Sulfuron Spire as they say he should -- from 12 O'clock to 6 and back again.
Pet Stats at level 81 (when tamed) and spec'd into the basic tenacity tank build: (if this helps)
3213 Attack Power
81 Resistance to Every Tree
Diet: Fish, Bread, Fungus, Fruit.
I truly am one lucky SOB... Dinged 85 about an hour ago and happened to be flying around in this area picking herbs and suddenly my NPCScanner went off... Bout gave me a heart attack... The truely amazing part.. was that not even 30 min before (actually within 5 min of hitting 85) I was zooming around Ghostcrawler's domain and found him... I just wish I had "happened" to find some of the wrath rares like this LOL.
I must warn you though bout the burning hatred damage he does to you. If not prepared... it will kill you. Found him at 54,76 swimming around in some lava. he is quite huge... so even if you DONT have the NPC Scanner you will see him.
Terokkar server. Spawned all the way to the south for me 52,94 81,65. Instantly identified with npcscan the moment it spawned.
Respawned approx 14 hours after previous tame.
Tamed using Mark of the wild + prismatic elixir + lifeblood on a level 84 hunter with 80K health (202 fire resistance). Damage taken between 3-5K per tick.
Spawned & tamed 18:10 on Azuremyst 54.7 80.8 no buffs, 327 avg gear, ate up 65k health during tame. worth the 2 day camp I think.
After camping him for a while and using my spare time to pick flowers, he spawned for me today at around 1:50am Dunemaul server. Terrorpene spawned around 54,81 and started walking north. I tried taming him alone but as a lvl 84 and taking 10k damage during his channeling i found myself dying before completing.
Called over vt on my boyfriend to come and heal me as he was around, and then tamed him a few minutes later around 53.74. I was extremely happy over getting this lazor turtle of doom, and after standing around only a minute, an level 85 horde hunter swoops down, take a good look at my new buddy, /cry at us and flies away.
In that moment even though i had camped him, i felt very lucky.
Got him today at level 81. Used just a prismatic elixer and a haste potion. Had 715 haste rating already and a 36.5k health. One shot. Sweated a little.
Oh, and I killed an 85 alliance hunter who must have fell asleep while I was waiting. :P :P
Got this wonderful guy on Icecrown as an 83 Blood Elf Hunter (Racqelle) in the crafted Tsunami set and some quest blues.
Started camping this guy yesterday at 7:00AM and finally tamed him at his southern spawn point, right across from where you kill
Death to the Broodmother
quest, at 5:08PM when he popped up on NPCscan. The 10 hour camp is by far the longest I've ever waited at one time for a pet (Blazewing spawned during the wait as well). Dont think I could have done it if I wasnt preoccupied with working from home due to the weather. I had several hunters swing by over that time but none stayed longer than 10 - 15 minutes so I didnt have alot of competition.
The only hiccup during the camp session was a lame 85 Worgen Hunter who was fishing the lava pools and when he saw me hovering he pulled out his tamed Terrorpene, which set off my NPCscan alarm. Had me a minor heart-attack when I didnt see him until I saw the emote of him laughing. I waited til he left then relogged to clear my cache.
When Terrorpene spawned I took the wonderful advice from the comments here and dropped from the sky...hitting the Ancient Hysteria on my core hound, dismissed him, chugged a Prismatic Elixir, a Potion of Speed, then started the tame. I had him 6 seconds later after only taking ~24k damage from his attack (between 4k - 5k a tick, resisting the rest).
I had about 60k health with 90 fire resist (after drinking the Prismatic Elixir) so my paranoia about how hard this would be was all for naught. You can easily tame him with the steps I listed with minimal damage. I didnt even use Deterrence which could possibly have kept me from taking any damage at all. Granted I was two levels higher than him so it may be a bit more dicey if you are 81 or 82.
Good luck to everyone trying for this amazing looking turtle, he is definitely worth the effort!
Named mine Scorch. :o)
Finally tamed @ 1250 Dunemaul server time. After 3 days of camping, fishing.. I can rest easy now.
Today I thought to just go crazy and strip my gear, sacrifice my Perky Pug as offering and lay on a bed of flowers(Path of Cenarious). Just as I was taking screenshots, DING! I rushed and used Mighty Speed elixir instead of Prismatic and died almost instantly. I was so afraid someone else would get the tame on him before I got back to corpse since this place is infested with other hunters. This time I took it a little slower and was fairly quiet with no one around. Took Prismatic elixir and said why not and casted Gift of Naaru as well.
Finally got him at about 1030pm on garrosh server. Ive been checking out the area in between tb runs and dalies and never had any luck. I had been there just a little while ago and had to go back to orgrimmar to empty my bags and figured I'd head back so that I could check in the morning and see if he was up. I was just flying around in a circle getting ready to land when npc scan went off and scared the crap out of me. Tamed him no problem after fumbling around my keyboard. I was surprised I got him as the area is usually crawling with 2 or 3 hunters circling the area. Now on to karoma and sambas I guess.
yea he was a huge turtle when he finaly came up but.. there was a full out war on this guy of horde and allys soo mhm was hard a troll hunter got him he didnt have to follow me after that and try to shoot me out of the sky if u see this troll hunter i hope u die by that pet
My fiancé logged on to Lightbringer EU yesterday at approx. 3pm to see if he had spawned (I always log out in that area, just in case!) and there was another Ally hunter already waiting. He whispered my fella and said that not 5 minutes before, another Alliance, hunter none the less, had swooped down and killed Terrorpene before he had a chance to tame! I spoke to the same guy later on and he was so angry that the other hunter had killed him, I just don't understand! Please don't kill this guy (or any rare beast for that matter) if you see him, even if you already have him/there are no hunters waiting, he drops nothing of worth and it just means we all have to wait longer to tame! :(
one question...why are people naming him "Bowser" lol
I tamed him today at 4:02 central time in the Akama server!
I was camping for about 2 days and got on at 3 just to check, thought Id stay a bit longer
to look. Another hunter came a long and decided to leave like 10minutes before he re spawned
sux for him but awesome for moi XD
Tamed him yesterday at Chamber of Aspects EU.
05:04 am. The Prismatic Elixir was not in stock on AH. I died a few times so tougth that i would try something different. Used a flask of steelskin for 300 stamina and a Potion of speed (500) haste.
Died the same time that the taming was complete :).
Was level 82 btw with 52 k health.
Alright i have been camping this beast for four days now after a fellow guild hunter gave up his chance at Karoma so i could tame it cus i was obsessed with her. i told him as he wanted TP id find it for him. three days i camped leaving my toon online with the sound on as a slept it didnt spawn during any of these times. sometime during the second day my fellow guild hunter located TP and attempted to catch the beast and it to kill him, it was stolen by another hunter. im ashamed to say was also a member of my guild (needless to say we are very angry at him)
while on my Priest the beast spawned on the third day. i only knew this for my fellow guild hunter saw another horde hunter catch it the time was aprox 11:00pm realm time. i fell asleep tired and logged on around 2pm the next day to an email saying my guild member had finaly caught him in the morning though he never said a time. i decided enough was enough and this beast would be mine.
i started my camp at 2:00pm realm time 04/02/11 after an hour my husband logged onto his pally after i confessed my concerns of a horde killing me and the turtle for there were sure a ton around he said he's stun anything that tried or heal me if the beast did too much damage. a couple hours later with him and me stationed at the west and south parts of the lava pool another enemy hunter joined the fray with a couple friends (a priest and druid) this hunter i had seen many times in the past few days. i fretted about them the entire time they were there, leaving only a couple hours later. through out the camp many hunters i had seen many times before appeared and left. my husband and i camped for 15 and a half straight hours. (around 3:00am my guild master decided to join out of sheer boredom and the three of us including two other guildies had a little war with horde around 4am) aroud 5am i was getting tired but after camping for so long i fully refused to leave untill TP spawned. and he did indeed at exactly 5:34am he spawned the southern end nearly under me. i jumped down and being 85 i still popped my haste and resistance pots, my lifeblood and my gift of naaru (i think i went a little overbored but wasnt taking chances) watching him barely peal my life away was quite satisfying and he is now my nameless pet
i feel like im giving an award speech (though i should after 15hrs this is by FAR the worst iv had with a rare with loque, arcturis, Skoll, Sambas and Karoma in my collection)
Goodluck the rest of you included that horde hunter who decided to appear seconds after i caught TP and didnt kill me in revenge
and though its off topic thank you to my Husband who camped that long to have me sqeal in delight
Update today on 02/10/11 at aprox 5:44am realm time i was farming mats for my hunter when i decided boredly il check TP spawn again and found him (was kinda shocked after such a long wait to locate him the first time he's just walking around here without a hunter in sight) he was at the northwest spawn point just walking around. i quickly called my husband who was sleeping and wanted TP however he was too tired to get up and tame it. mently smacking myself for not having wireless at my house and the fact that his account uses the athenticator so i had no way of getting onto his account even knowing the info. i moved onto my guild only one other person online a fellow hunter.i quickly started yelling in guild and he is now a proud owner of TP as well.. now to find one for my Hubby ^^ dont known if this is a pattern but 5:30am works :)
2 hours after the release of cata i hit this bad boy with a beast lore and it said untamable. this makes me angry. at that time there was no crowd of hunters camping the spot, everyone was fighting for quests. would have been easy peasy.
Saw a lot of posts on here discussing: Using Ancient Hysteria, potions, flasks, etc.
I just wanted to add one more idea....
Just tame him....if you are lvl 85, just tame the turtle.... Took me down to 40% no buffs.
Just trying to clarify. You don't have to be a toughguy to get this pet. Don't polevault mouse turds.
Also, even though it is posted here, since I get asked all the time: No, you don't have to be BM to have it.
this is the luckiest i've ever been taming wise...
i guess this makes up for all the time working on camping broken tooth(he took days and days..), skoll (he took days and days) and other rare pets..
i flew to Hyjal, looked around sulfaron spire for a few minutes, then decided to go read up on him on wowhead more.. started reading looked at his spawn points started flying around again and landed at 54x73, and saw him walking around right in front of me. i nearly had a heart attack, figured someone else had to be near so i jumped into action , dismissed my pet, and figured im level 85 i can withstand the lava so started taming right then and there, he got me to like 10% health so i Fd''d aggro, eat food to heal, looking all around figuring someone would get him, turned into a dragon, found him again, moved to a safe location on a ledge at 51x83 started casting tame and my heart was pounding so hard, i figured something would happen to prevent this... i couldn't believe id actually get him after less than a few minutes of camping...he does hit you with some kind of fire dmg for like 10k (not sure if its per tick or not), he got me down to about 40% health so when i was more prepared and not standing in lava it was easy @85
at 12:33am server time, he was mine! (suramar server)
I am a survival hunter so he is not exotic you do NOT need to be BM spec'd to tame him
Good Karma for once from WoW, thanks bliz ! haha
What luck! Great time for fishing up volatile fires since I happened to stumble upon him around 2am on Ner'zhul. Was patrolling around the outer eastern side of the lava pools. Tried trapping but failed miserably since he is immune. Died. Released. Ran back. Had to abandon one of my other pets since I was caught off guard. Second attempt I just started taming with no buffs or pots. Worked out fine since I had pvp gear on and my hp was around 117k. Named him 'MutantNinja'. Good luck to all that want this epic pet! :]
Tamed 4:50pm 2/5/11 on Scarlet Crusade (US). Level 85 hunter, didn't need any elixirs or pot's, although as mentioned above he did do a good chunk of damage (around 50K total for me) before taming finished. As mentioned, he's just a turtle by family, you don't have to be beastmaster to tame him.
PS -- named him "Gamera"
Terrorpene tamed at 01:06 on 06-02 coords (52.82)
Sambas tamed at 01:13 on 04-02 coords (38.8)
Ghostcrawler tamed at 14:10 on 27-01 coords (23.62)
camping 20 min
Jadefang tamed at 13:38 on 24-01
Horde EU-Grim Batol
WOOT! Finally got him. I was level 83 on the Medivh server. I started camping him at 9:45am server time and stayed there non-stop for 7 hours, then I had to log off and just checked intermittently for a few hours. Then at 9:45pm server time, I popped back in game and there it was... with an orc trying to tame it! >< I was SO nervous that I screwed up and died twice, but so did the orc. I hearthed, bought potions, portal/flew back. BE paladin had arrived to heal orc.... two secs too late because he was dead again. So I was able to tame him! I used potion of speed, elixir of lightning speed, ancient hysteria from corehound, then dismissed him and tamed terrorpene.
So SO happy!
Oh thank the high heavens! Level 82, 3:50 AM, tamed it on my first try with Prismatic Elixir and Ancient Hysteria. Had forgot to pop Deterrence but survived easily with 50K health. I'm very grateful that not only are there Core Hounds in Mount Hyjal but also that it only took me one day of camping for 4 hours to get this awesome pet. Saw at least 4 other Hunters in the area with 1 of them being around for several hours but luckily they left awhile before The Great Terror spawned.
Realm seemingly crashed a couple minutes after I tamed him. Got disconnected, logged back in and Stormrage and a bunch of other realms were greyed out. Was able to log in a little later.
Now to think of a name... Bowser or not to Bowser, that is the question.
Holy crap. I've camped the spawn zone intermittently since yesterday, and after some patience tonight and reliance on NPCScan, Terrorpene spawned and became mine as the server shutdown timer hit 2:45 minutes. I'm still shaking.
I'm level 83 with 64773 hp. I ate +90 Stam food, popped a Prismatic Elixir, haste potion, and deterrence, following the recommendations of other posters. That reduced the damage I was taking roughly in half (attacks hitting for ~5k). By the time I was finished I had 36582 hp.
I still can't believe this just happened. Thank you, turtle god.
Am I the only one finding his name quite hilarious? "Pene" simply means "penis" in spanish, not that I think this is intended as some sort of easteregg... But a Terrorpenis? Rofl.
Just tamed this bad boy and very lucky to do so.
I was doing all the Hyjal quests on my Warrior for guardians rep and was up too the part where u have to kill King Molten and the Dragon. After I had completed both quests I found a herb right in the middle of the lava where he spawns, flew down picked it and thought wouldnt it be annoying if Terrorpene was here now considering all the time I spent ou here on my hunter tryin to camp it.......a low and behold i moved my camera slightly and there he was! I had to endure what felt like an hour long 20 sec log out screen before seeing that had parked my hunter in org instead of out the front of Sulfuron keep like usual >.< I quickly ported to Hyjal and the entire time was hoping and wishing no1 had tamed him first and when i got there he was still around and i was happy as ever :D
A downside too this was that I was feeling lucky so I cleared my cache and went over too twilight to see if Sambas was around.......fter about 30mins of searching my NPC scan goes off and i thought this was luckier then the day I got my 2nd thunderfury binding on My DK but............after about 5 secs of NPC scan going off everything stops and my router decides too cut out >.< cam eback about 10 mins later and he was no where to be seen :(
Wanted to share some info on Terrorpene's respawn timer because it seems to be fairly unclear yet, and no I'm not reading every single post here, so if it's already been posted, gray me out ;) however, from what I have seen it is
12 or 24hours
. I watched him spawn 4 days in a row, I had caught wind on a friday afternoon of him spawning @ 3pm, the next day he was tamed @ 2:57pm on a Saturday, on Sunday, I lost him once again to horde @ 2:45pm, Monday I finally nabbed him @ 2:40pm and after informing a guildie which nabbed him @ about 2:30pm Tuesday. This was roughly a week ago, however last night I found out he was tamed @ 10:00am Monday morning, and out of complete bordem I went over and camped him @ about 9:pm just to test my 12hr theory I kept hearing and he popped @ 9:57pm and a guildie log on alt on to tame it. Seeing as I still have one or two guildies still after him, I'm not posting what server it was, sorry but I spent some time figuring this out, however if you can learn when it was tamed, be there an hour before the 12 and/or 24hour time hits. The last hour of its respawn timer seems to be random from what I've seen as in 11.4/11.8/23.2/23.9 etc.. you get the point. Happy hunting, hope this helps, Terrorpene is well worth the wait!
Hello,this is Melissa from Whisperwind :) Well,after waiting 3 long days/nights and missing him twice by just a few minutes my search is over..I got him! lol.I was sitting on the rock just in front of his spawn point and bingo he popped out right in front of me (at 11:14 pm realm time..9:14 ca.time).I had to act fast because hunters had began to show up since it was late at night.Drank my prismatic,elixir of mighty speed and used my runscroll and in just a few seconds he was mine :) I couldnt watch and put my hands over my eyes lol because I was scared that I would die and someone would get him.Haste is really important with this turtle because of his burning hatred.I got lucky and bought some desent armor that had alot of haste and got a boot/glove enchant that had 50 haste on each and also bought some haste food so I had almost 20% haste rating.Now,I dont know if thats good or if that was what helped me but my health with all that was only just over 59k and he had only brought me down half way which really surprised me so you be the judge :) I named him Hottie(with the slash through the o since hes so HOT! hehe) Good luck to Gunnar & Robb and all the hunters out there and remember your haste :)
i have recently found out on my warlock who is glyphed into fear that you can fear the mob in place so the hunter doesnt have to worry about taking dmg while taming him. found this out yesterday while helping my friend get a pet from sunwell plateau.
Just Captured Terrorpene on the Zangarmarsh server at 9:08pm realm time wed Feb. 9 2011. He was also captured around the the same general time by another hunter on Sun feb 6 2011. I talked to that hunter just after he captured it,
He had spawned at the south west corner of the lava pit near the magma giant on the island. I had camped the area on monday and tuesday from 8pm till 2am realm time. Maybe it was coincidental or maybe hes on a 3 day spawn cycle for the evening. Also I captured him at lvl 85 with just standard blue and green gear and had no issues
Good luck to any other hunter that is trying to capture him.
I just thought I'd throw in my two cents here. I luckily started on this page, and I highly recommend any hunter under 83 to get the Prismatic elixir and Potion of Speed, as they're the only things that enabled me to tame this beasty. I died my first time trying to tame it, with both potions on although without deterrence.
I was one second - literally - away from taming him when I died (me being a lvl 81 BM hunter with 38k health) I hurriedly rezzed, healed back up and used both potions as well as Deterrence this time, and with around 2k health left, I had myself a new pet!
The Burning Hatred spell hit me for 4-6k each tick with Prismatic Elixir on, and in preparation for the tame I actually bought some high stamina items to replace the old crap WOTLK gear I had on, increasing my health from 34k to 38k.
Basically, if you're under 83 (and maybe not even that high of a level) these are my recommendations:
- Use both the Prismatic Elixir and Potion of Speed potions with you to the fight. Bring more than one in case you die and have to use them again.
- Use Deterrence right before you hit Tame Beast.
- Get your health pool up any way you can. Buy out items on the AH that have high stamina, you don't want to start taming this guy, only to find out you die each time and have to come back at a higher level.
Good luck to all you hunters out there looking to get this guy!
P.S. - I tamed him 2:30 AM server time on Darrowmere. And MUCH MUCH thanks to the Night Elf Rogue and the Worgen Druid who let me tame him and didn't try to kill him! If WoW had more players like you, hunters everywhere would give their thanks a million times over.
Just tamed him on Dalaran server. don't know how long I camped him, but it was long enough to fish up 351 volatile fires from the pools there.
After a 8 hour camp Finally caught Terrorpene
Location: 54,81 Hyjal
Time: 8:24pm Server
Tamed Terrorpene Sargeras 9:31 pm server time at the southern-most point of his spawn zone show above.
He hits like a truck.
Tamed at 2:10 AM PST Feb 12th on the Garrosh Realm at level 83.
Used Prismatic Elixir, Elixir of High Speed and Potion of Speed.
Started around 50k health, ended fight with about 5k health. I resisted over 30k in fire damage from his beam. So the Prismatic Elixir is a MUST HAVE for any non 85 hunter, and even then, it's very nice to have, just in case.
On a side note: Deterrence will NOT deflect his fire beam. I got hit with it while deterrence was up twice. I'm not sure if this was just changed in the hotfix, or what, but I know I did in fact take damage while Deterrence was up.
Really was contemplating naming him Torkoal, but decided to stick with Shakkou, a name I use for Turtles XD
Based on reports from a Guild Mate who tamed him the previous day, and camped him for a horde friend until I decided to start camping him, he seems to be on a
4-12 hour spawn time
. It spawned once while I was on another toon on another realm, according to another hunter who was camping him (who is also a friend) at ~8 PM PST on Feb. 11th. Tamed him 4 hours later when I logged in simply to do a quick check if he was up, and low and behold, he was swimming in the lava under me. Ended the camping process with 124 Volatile Fires.
193 people are unworthy of playing a hunter.
On my server i farmed him for about 3-4 days and got him ninja'd from me twice and killed once, but when i finally saw him i didn't know exactly how to get around his attacks then i got the idea to use Deterrence first just to see if that would work. It worked amazing. By the time Deterrence was over i was almost finished with the tame. So i would recommend not going and buying overpriced potions and stuff like that, just use Deterrence then use Tame Beast.
Just tamed him. 1:15PM EST On Realm Perenolde....Saw him last night at 1AM someone else grabbed and figured he would spawn within the 12 HR range and he did. Total camping time about 4 HRS. Damn he's sweet looking. I had a little trouble taming , he was out of reach so I had to shoot him and I fell in the lava (Doh) and he killed me. Luckily the graveyard is 10 seconds away. Came back and he was closer to the mound and I tamed him. I was not able to freeze trap him since he just stayed away and shot lava at me. Good luck fellow Hunters!
what unfortunate name for an npc...... if you don't know why simply ask some spanish speaking friend what's the deal about his name
: Just spawned for me after camping for about 6 hours at
He's hell worth the camp.. Get it? ..Hell? Nevermind.
PS. For those of you who camped or still camping him; Boy, am I glad with NPCscan overwriting my Sound settings, those vulcano sounds got on my nerves, one of the more annoying places to camp, I'd say.
I had been looking for this guy for a couple of days on and off. I camped for around 4-5 hours last night with no luck. I guess he is still pretty popular judging by the hunters flying around and checking for him.
I didn't get a chance to log in until the evening today and while I was there my brother came down to hang out while he was waiting for his dungeon. After about half an hour of BSing with my brother I see the red dot pop on my screen and silver dragon goes off as my brother types in "over there".
I knew there were a couple of ally in the area as well so I just dropped off my drake and hit tame. No fussing with trying anything special.
He was hitting me for 10k at a click and my health which is 100k was going down. I would have hated to have died but in the end I won out. Not a second later there was an Ally hunter beside me who cheered for me. I graciously bowed to him. So nice to see honor amongst hunters.
Named him Kelvin after the thermal scale. He is a beauty so be patient. This is my 5th rare. I'm very happy right now.
Tamed at 8:30 on the dot on Vek'nilash server.
just tamed 14th Feb 2011
east end of lava pit.
tame time 3:31pm server time on negrand, after a 3 hour wait, which apparently is a short wait time
awesome looking pet.
Happy Valentine's Day to me.... I got the gift of Terrorpene
The Throne of Flames
I hardly took any damage
Tamed on Gilneas server at 13:45 server time, almost 12 hours exactly after the last confirmed tame. Spawned around 55, 78.
Just tamed on Uther. Tuesday Feb 15th, 12 noon server time after camping him for a day and a half.
Was making lunch, happened to check and saw he was up. Took a couple of tries but I got him on the 3rd try using techniques given in this thread. Nice to have him although I had blackened grilled cheese for lunch. Note to self....don't cook while camping.
Good luck to all of you =D
Tamed on Chamber of Aspects EU @ 15/02 - 9.15PM.
Just came out of a dungeon & there he was in front of me, just BARELY managed to do it at 82 with 40k HP.
Used the resist elixir as mentioned here, popped a haste potion, rapid fire and deterence, came out with around 2k hp left, the fire ticks hurt pretty badly at that level.
Looks absolutely gorgeus though, glad to have a good looking tank pet ^^
Good luck to everyone going for it, he's very worth it :)
WOOT just tamed at 6:40 (EST) on Garona. He almost spawned on top of me at the southernmost spawn area shown. Been trying off and on for a few days now amidst multiple other hunters (some more mannerly than others). Good luck to all - he's great!
Tamed! Dentarg at 1:20AM est. 2/16/2011
Here's how I did it:
I've been fishing for volatile fires in Hyjal for about 3 days in a row. I kept hoping that Terrorpene would spawn while I was there, but that never happened.
I'm a LVL84 SV Hunter. I have no special gear, in fact many of my items are decent green quest rewards at best. I did not do anything different to prepare to tame Terrorpene and underestimating him almost cost me a great opportunity.
At about midnight I was tired of fishing the lava and fighting other's farming Vol Fires so I set my mount in a low, safe hover position in the northern portion of the reported spawning area and switched my fishing rod for my two "The Perforator's". I went to bed and left my computer on with NPCscan active and the WoW cache folder cleared. Within five minutes of laying down another hunter flew up in front of me and asked if I was waiting for Terrorpene. I responded "Yeah" and went back to bed. About an hour past when I was awakened by NPCscan's familiar alert and launched myself out of bed to my computer. Now, there were three hunters there trying to tame the beast. I tried to tame but was notified that I already had an active summons! In my groggy state of mind I'd forgotten to dismiss my beloved Stormwind Sewer Beast. I quickly dismissed him and tried to tame again but another hunter had tagged him. I watched as the battle raged and the mighty beast claimed another victim. Now I had my shot. I cast tame and before I knew what hit me, I was dead too! I raced back from the graveyard to find a 3rd lower level hunter had "died trying".
By now, Terrorpene had moved closer to the center of the lava area and I quickly repositioned myself for one more try. As soon as I started to tame him he hit me for 10k damage and I thought "here we go again, I'm a gonner". But with a sliver of health left I heard the "Gong" indicating I had done it! I had tamed this rare pet in the midst of a flurry of competition and without and special buffs. To be fair though, I suspect the other hunters were lower levels than I and also not properly prepared.
After the taming of the beast we all stood around on a boulder and examined this amazing pet while my heart pounded like a sledgehammer against my chest cavity. One of the competing hunters was very gracious and congratulated me for taming him. Another hunter wasn't as much of a good sport about it and seemed more immature in his reaction to the events as they unfolded. However, nothing could dampen my mood. Now, as I write this, I'm still too excited to sleep. I am trying to decide on a name and I might choose "Patton" after the famous WWII tank commander. But, eventually, I'll sleep on it.
So, there it is. Good luck to all of you trying for this pet. He is amazing and well worth the time and effort to make him yours.
just a quick question on the note of CC... is he effected by wyvern sting?
After dinner & getting Flowers for the wife. Logged onto the WoW, got our hunters to 81. Flew over to Nemesis, thought that was the one we needed to tame.. Found out it was Terror we needed.
By the time we flew over there, he was walking around. Tried taming him once, didnt work, tried w/ pots a 2nd time, didnt work. I jumped on my Pally and healed my wife through the taming process.
So for my wife's V-Day she got flowers and Terrorpene.
Now i've been camping that SoB for 4 days and had him taken from me by horde 3 times. I want the ability to stab someone through the monitor.
Nytesdeath - Windrunner.
Just tamed this on my level 83 hunter.
I tamed him around 9:30 server time on Korgath-US. He killed me on first attempt and I was forced to feign death twice because of his attack. Deterrence didn't seem to work for me so I pulled my Spirit Beast out, spirit mended myself, dismissed and then tamed. I was just able to tame him with around 5000 hp left. Great lookin tank pet.
My story in short:
Tried the first time today to find Terrorpene (as level 81).
When I got there, I couldn't believe my luck, NPC Scan immediately warned me. I hastily flied around, turned on track best, nothing...
...then I saw him lying on a rock, as skinable. Poor soul. That was around 10.00 CST.
I was so pissed about it, I decided to let my hunter there whole day. Around 18.00 I gave up, and logged of, frequently checking back a couple of times.
Then the idea came, if I'm already there, I could fish up some fires from the nearby pools. Logged back at 23.00 , and fished/mined some.
23:47, I was very tired so just was flying around the place aimlessly, then BAM, NPC Scan got him on sight!
I panicked, as there were 4 other hunters in the zone (and that only from my faction) so I landed I started to tame. My tact was: ancient hysteria, elixir pre-applied, stoneform, deterrence and tame. Well I died like a fool, I was too nervous to excecute this simple plan.
Res, run back, help arriving from guild in a form of a healer priest. As soon as he was relatively close I started the tame, he saved me from dying and got him in the end.
I've let the others know and went to SW with my new friend.
Sorry to all hunters whose NPCscan was screwed by an idiot running around in sw :P
His respawn timer was indeed around 13-14 hours, as the post above states
.. but totally worth it!
Tamed! 6:52 PM(AZ/MTN time) Kel'thuzad (Ignore my original Server name, wrong one)
Was killed 4 times!
My Wife (got him on V-day), was on her Druid. doing normal heals + kept pulling aggro. Finally we had her do a bunch of HoT Bird form and get into the air. I Scatter Shot him and then tamed him.. with the HoT i didnt get down to 50% health. (LvL 81 36K Health).
Now it is time to tank him out and go get to 85!
Just tamed him at 7:20 st on Shattered Halls.
my story- camped for 10 hours, doing other things. maybe an hour before I tamed him, allies show up and gank me; my guildies came out to chase them off. Just before he spawns, I'm flying around and a lava giant knocks me off.
I'm at half health when I get the giant off of me and I hear the horn. I know every hunter in the zone has to be beelining for the turtle and he's right there in front of me. thankfully, one guildy is still there and heals me, I popped the elixirs and got the tame.
my new pet is well worth the wait.
Good luck and good hunting out there.
Tamed him at 6:02 am server time at 54.9, 75.0 on Scarlet Crusade.
Just thought I'd check the area while waiting in the Heroic queue. NPCscan had already cached him, but I flew in and bam there he was.
Glad I didn't have to spend hours camping for him. During other checks of the area I've seen up to 4 other hunters camping the area.
Good luck to the rest of you!
I tamed this lovely creature at 1:39am today EST. Windrunner server. I was actually in bed and thought, I will just put myself in his spawn location. I get there.. and I dont' even think a minute went by and bam! NPC Scan goes off! I almost had a heart attack lol My heart was pounding so hard. As soon as it gonged he was mine and alliance char came and cheered me! Then he cried a little.. but hopefully my hug gave him some slight comfort! I just so happy I have him now! It was a month I was looking for him! I am going to submit a pic too! :0)
found him at 07:35 ST (bonechewer) far south on the bottom lvl just popped up and i was at 15% health when done no buffs or nothing ! GOOD LUCK!
hahahah Most of you are going to hate me. I camped for him for 25 min and found him :D
5:15 AM Dark Iron US
Southern most spawnpoint
I passed on Terrorpene for a Horde hunter friend of mine, which they was there for awhile. At 6:27pm sever time on Skullcrusher he spawned. I went back around 1-2am sever time, at 12hrs which would of been 6:27am no fire turtle. Stayed until 7:30 nothing....was about to log but couldn't sleep so i stayed up 15hrs later at 8:30am sever time he spawned. So this guy will spawn from 12 to 16hrs of spawn time. Give your self 30mins or so of extra time to wait, Thanks to my Horde Hunter friend I own this awesome Flamin Turtle. Thanks Dead & to all his Horde friends, I am alliance too btw XD

Just tamed him after camping on and off for 2 weeks. Easy as 85, 340 AiL Surv spec. Only took me down 30% of 105k. Worth the wait just for the look, lol.
So i'm so stoked i downloaded NPCScan because i was simply finishing up my quests in Hyjal today so i could get exalted and buy the epic mail boots. I had no intention of taming this epic beast and got soooo lucky because there were some alliance around.
I was doing the Ragnaros chain and low and behold NPCscan goes off and Terrorpene is chilling down in the lava surrounded by a level 85 mage, 83 mage, and an 82 hunter. I dismounted got out the core hound and abandoned him with the quickness. The hunter tried to tame him but a quick Aimed Shot took care of his attempt. I tried for a quick ninja tame but the mages wouldn't have it. On my corpse run back i see the mages hovering around and the hunter positioning himself.
So i found a hiding spot behind a rock. Rezzed. Ate up. And started the tame through a rock to terropene in the pit beyond. I was hoping i would stay hidden long enough to complete the tame, the mages were circling around overhead but i guess they didn't notice me. About halfway through i see the arrows from the hunter start flying my way. My health starts ticking down and Terropene is destroying my health with those 10k ticks. Just before i dropped dead I was able to tame him.
I'm so stoked to have found him without trying. But i did have to put up a bit of a fight to get him.
I named him Templeofdoom. ;)
If you've got a fishing pole on you, might as well farm off the Pools of Fire.
I made around 2,000 gold with Volatile Fires by the time I tamed Terrorpene.
Terrorpene spawned between 2:40am and 3:00am est on Turalyon and I tamed him on the date of this post.
Tamed it at 5:48 am server time in Burning Legion. The last spawn was around 9:40ish pm server time but lost the turtle since some ally thought it was funny to kill it. Anyway from my experience I'm guessing the spawn time is around 8 hours give or take. Good luck to any who wants to tame this sexy beast.
PS: Named it bowser.
How I did it: Tamed it at 82 with around 49k hp. It's possible to tame at 81. I used elixir of mighty speed, prismatic elixir, drums of forgotten kings and potion of haste. I popped lifeblood and deterrence just to be safe. With my stuff the ticks hit me for around 3-5k. Lost about half my health. Good luck!
Spawned at 5:05am server on Lightbringer-US, about 15 hours from when i saw him last.
level 82 worgan hunter, used haste food and elixer, with resistance pot. Killed me the 1st time, ran back ate again and got him the 2nd time! It was not an easy task, but i finished the tame right before he killed me.
Was worried there was an undead mage hanging out, looked to be up to no good. but he left just before he spawn.
Tamed at 5:04pm PAC on Cenarius.
Spawned at 53.6 , 82.6, began patting North/Northeast along the 'coastline'.
While I was camping, I decided to look through my bank and see what kind of Fire Resist gear I had, since I had not brought along any Alchemy goodies. Managed to scrape together 131 FR from my stale gear I had sitting around, which according to the WoW interface is 18.23% (pulled it out using my Argent Squire). So once you give this the factor of 4 that the beast's Ability has in it, that is about 72.92% FR. I think this 131 FR rating is also right about what you would get from a Pally's aura, if you were going to bring a friend along. This lower-end gear (some from BC and Vanilla) brought my total health down to 85k. I finished the tame with 60% health remaining.
I resisted anywhere between 40-60% of the damage that the Burning Hatred was putting up on me, as well as completely resisting an entire application of it. It seems that there are about 3 ticks per application. I took a total of 7 ticks of Burning Hatred, ranging between 4k and 6k per tick.
So this CAN be done with lower health levels at 81, no problem, as long as you have enough Fire Resist.
Just tamed on the Wrymcrest Accord Server at 7:15PM.
Very easy if your at 85. I didn't even have to use a haste potion an tamed him with around 30K health left.
I wish the best of luck to the other hunters looking for him.
Tamed him around 5 am EST on Dragonblight server at level 82. Was camping him while Q'ing up for dungeons. Had a fail tank leave group after wiping everyone (except me of course, FD ftw). Decided to port out just to check and there he was right in front of me! Had my Prismatic and Haste flask ready, also popped a 500 haste potion right before taming. Fortunately I still had buffs from my group (Fortitude and Kings :) so by the time deterrence ran out, I still had 70% of my HP. Those haste buffs really helped... Never seen my tame bar move so fast! Don't give up to all those who want this beast. The pics don't do him justice...
I just found this guy dead in the lava. My NpcScan had already cashed it so i wasn't aware it was there at all, then i turned around and almost got a heartattack and discovered it was dead.........
why would someone kill this beauty for a lousy 25 g? Now i just gotta hope i find this one again, but alive.
Tamed him on Blade's Edge at ~1:48 pm realm time. I was trying to input his ID into NPCScan when Silverdragon caught him. I panicked - a horde DK saw him too.
Also, I had just tamed Madexx (blue) the night before and forgot to summon a throw away pet before I went looking for Terrorpene. Fortunately, no one tagged him while I straightened out that mess.
As someone previously posted, at 85 you don't need any bells and whistles to pull off a successful tame. I tamed him with 94K health and finished with about 10%.
I'm so excited right now. :) Good Luck, Hunters.
Talshira on Whisperwind
Woot woot, so 5:15 PM server time on Whisperwind. I'd been camping this baby about 5 days now off and on when he spawned for me out in the middle of the lava. While waiting those days I'd seen so many hunters come and go, people asking if I''d seen him, etc, I didn't want to chance it, so I started taming him in the lava. Took me down about 3/4 before I got him. Good luck to the rest of you hunters out there. :)
Spawned at exactly 12am got lucky i camped for 5ish min when npcscan went crazy pop'd Deterrence tamed just in time. lvl 83 had just finished Deepholm so nothing but quest rewards.
Tamed today (23/2) at 15:35, doomhammer EU.
The servers were supposed to be down until 11:00, but I forgot it was server-reset-day and logged in at 08:00 and it worked. When I realised the were not going to be any competition for Terrorpene for several hours I decided to give it a shot. I camped at the most southern of his/her route with NPC-scan on, and went away from computer to do other stuff. During the day I went back all the time to move my character a bit so not to get afk. At noon several other hunters started to circle the area.
At 15:00 I had to get out to take my kid for a walk and I gave up, but had to give him something to eat first. Fixed the food and helped him eat, then were on my way out and went to turn of the computer (I was still in-game). Just as I got to the computer he/she spawned and 1 second later I started the tame.
I am only lvl81 with just over 30k HP so I wasnt sure I was going to be able to pull it of, but being BM I used Corehound Ancient hysteria, as well as Prismatic Elixir, Haste Potion and Deterence and the tame was over in a matter of seconds, hardly lost any HP at all, and Im now the proud owned of this awesome pet.
Managed to tame him at 7.15pm GMT last night on Lightbringer EU. Have been looking for this pet on and off for about a month now. Logged in last night and was already at the 52,82 spawn point. Flew over to 56,75 and he was there walking underneath me. Quickly dismounted and tamed in the lava, at lvl 85 had no problems. Will say though, if you are camping him, make sure you keep moving covering all his spawn areas, as NPC scan didnt go off until I was right over him, therefore you may not pick him up if you are stationary.
Big thanks to the many that suggested this following method, as I've just nabbed him at 08:30am server time on Jubei'Thos.
I'm currently a level 81 hunter with 34k HP. When NPCScan and Silverdragon went off, I pretty much dropped straight down to do a bloodlusted tame thinking "Surely it's not that bad".
that bad and before the cast was over the beam had turned me into crispy fried troll. I was really impressed with the speed at which he dispatched me.
The next attempt was significantly more successful. I instantly hit the AH and purchased a stack of
. I had speed pots from Ronin after having dinged 80, and so headed off for attempt #2 - thankfully he was still taking a walk through the various lava pools. Attempt #2 was more carefully considered, as those ticks of hatred were really quite painful with my low health pool:
Potions of speed
- probably optional.
Bring out a Core Hound pet (or alternatively, bring a mage or shaman friend along).
Keep an empty pet slot!
Dismount on some dry land.
Ancient hysteria/Bloodlust/Time Warp.
Dismiss your Core Hound or any other pet (if you brought one to use for Ancient Hysteria).
Potion of Speed
Burning hatred went from ticking at 10k to ticking at 6k. With all of the haste provided by bloodlust and the haste pot the cast time of the tame was approximately 5 seconds, and completed with no competition.
Thanks to the various previous posters regarding bloodlust and the resistance elixir. I believe that they were key to me getting my own Terrorpene!
edit: How could I forget. I named him Trogdor. :D
tamed him at 11.58 gundrak realm time.
lvl 85 hunter with 110k hp.
Just simply tame him without any other thing lol =)
I just tamed Terrorpene at 5:07 AM EST on the Garona server. I used Prismatic Elixir and a Potion of Speed to help cut down on the damage. It was a quick easy tame.
Tamed at around 3pm (Sorry this is a late post so not 100% sure of the time) 24/02/2011 - Dentarg EU.
I was level 82 and had around 46k health. Had a haste potion (WoLK kind), a magical resit flask (Cata kind) and a haste flask (Cata kind). Just zoned out of a dungeon and NPC Scan went off, nerves etc then went off too lol.
Had intended to use Ancient Hysteria/dismiss pet - tag mob - haste flask - resist flask - haste potion - Deterrence - tame.
I didn't and I died very quickly.
Ran back and just used the two flasks and the haste potion then tamed, and it went smoothly. I can not stress how much you need haste/resist pots as his ranged attack hits very hard. If you are 85 I am sure it won't be much of a deal but anyone lower I suggest you get your bum to the nearest AH.
Good luck and remember "Gotta catch 'em all"
Just tamed this beast at 8:30pm EST Duskwood US.
I was camping him and my GF was herbing in Twilight Highlands when Karoma attacked her and she tagged it and started fearing it around till i arrived, she let it kill her and I tamed. Flew back to Hyjal flew down to the area he roams and bam he was there....I was and still am in shock.
Just tamed this guy 7:04am server time Kilrogg EU. I died twice! Once when i thought i was taming him, turns out i wasn't for whatever reason. Second time a Magma Giant decided to get to me as i ressurected. I screamed the second time i died, luckily it was at a quiet time and no one was around.
Can you still tame him if you have completed all the Quests in Hyjal? Or does he no longer spawn? Because I have been waiting for several hours and there has been no sign of him.
I logged in, after days of camping, and it was right there, as I landed, and tried taming (after casting hysteria), a horde druid started attacking it, his name was
His reasons, were he was waiting for a guildie to arrive - so what, if his guildie who wasn't there can't have it, a hunter who was parked there after camping for days doesn't deserve it? So that all can see what a w@nker he is, check out the screen shot..
- YOU W@NKER!
I will get Terrorpene soon, but you will always be an a$$hole, and hunters for all time will be able to remember your name and know what kind of person you are!
i honestly had no intention whatso ever of camping this mob with at least 3 or 4 other hunters in the area doin the same thing all the time. but tonight i was just gonna go fish for some fires cause i needed some, and i see this 84 hunter hovering slightly off the ground. the only one in the area. i obviously knew what he was doin, so i decided to kill him, /lol. and move on to fishing.
to my suprise though, as soon as i killed him and mounted up i watched terrorpene spawn right in front of me where that guy was camping, lol. dismissed my pet, hit tame beast, he got me down to about 20% hp. the hunter got back from his spirit rez and thought he would kill me since i was low, but i just killed him again, with a lil help from my new pet :P
i can only imagine how furious that guy was right about then, rofl.
p.s. im lvl 85 105k hp no buffs at all.
p.s.s. well a fishing lure, but i dont think that counts :P
Doing the quests there in Hyjal has nothing to do with Terrorpene spawning.In my experience i have found that he's a random spawner.

Tamed him after successfully predicting his spawn timer twice.
Found him dead at 13:45, came back to find him dead at around 19:00ish, came back at 00:55 to tame him.
After many days on and off and today's 6 hour camping, Crispy is mine! Spawned at the southest tip of the southern spawn point. He's a little bigger than your average wild turtle, dont expect a gigantic turtle. Lv 85, Arcane shotted while dismounting and a quick tame, no risk of dieing.
Warsong-US 23:45 Server Time Saturday 26/Feb I know he had spawned 26/Feb between 00 am and 6:30 am.
Camped him all day. Fishing while waiting. NPC Scan didnt go off but noticed him. Running to get in position and a hunter named NobleCrhis who already had him as a pet attacked and killed him. Very frustrated Hyjal
Camped him for 2 days more or less, and atlast I got him as a newly dinged level 82 hunter. I died the second the tame-cast-bar finished but I had him in my bags after release. One of the coolest pets I ever had.
Tamed on Doomhammer US server at 7am server time. Spawned in same place (52,84)... I just ran up and tamed him... no potions nothing extra, just me and my fishing pole at level 85. ended with 68% health. Righteous.
FYI, friend tamed yesterday at 11.30am on Doomhammer Server... You do the math!
Tamed him on my hunter a few weeks a go
as level 84 he hit me for 10k per 1-2seconds, health potions are handy!
didn't die though, and i think blizzard wanted him to become a hunters pet because of the loot he drops.
By far one of the best models so far as far as tamable pets goes.
This may be a useful tip as to his spawn chance--or it may be a random coincidence.
I flew around his spawn areas, and nothing popped up. I decided to do some lava fishing ** and rare finder popped up with Garr. I flew over to Garr and tried single pulling some of his ads in BM spec while discussing with my guild if it was worth putting a group together for his 346 loot. Pet (and almost myself) died fighting Garr's solo ad ( they can be solo pulled). If I had had my tenacity pet out, most certainly would have lived. Guild decided it wasnt worth the time/effort.
Flew back to check if any of the pools of volitle fire had spawned and NPC scan goes crazy--there's Terrorpene! Flew in, tamed it (no probs, I am 85).
Possibility that it shares a spawn with Garr? Hope that helps people.
** LAVA FISHING: I highly recomend this profitable hobby to anyone who is farming for Terrorpene. If you have find fish, pools of fire show on your map. These pools can be fished for volitile fire--which sells for about 25g on my server each. There are 4 pools, each which will yeild 4-5 fires before they are fished out. If you dont have find fish, they appear as slightly more "yellow" rather than red fire in the lava.
Fishing these pools counts towards your guild's "Thats a lot of Bait" achivement.
When the pools are down (between spawns) the lava itself can still be fished for greys. Melted axes sell for 5g each.
So I have been at it off and on for about 3 days and I have seen him 3 times. found out that his spawn time is usually in the 8 hour range. I'm only level 82 right now so i really cant solo him and usually have a friend on call to tank him. His attack is about 30k every cast but he has no cd with it so its a constant 10k each sec. Lost him to another horde hunter that was talking to me saying if i failed he wouldnt lol. He cant be traped so forget the freezing traps. All together make sure you have 50-60k health before you start and have fish in your bag to feed asap. Hope this helps any hunters that want him
Just tamed on Rexxar today around 2:40pm realm time. Yay!
I camped for about 6 hours last night till I gave up to sleep, woke around 5am realm time and took a check and another hunter was already camped there. Came back about an hour and 1/2 later, the other hunter was gone so I assumed he got lucky and tamed one for himself.. so I started the wait. Fished the lava pools (between the 6 hours the previous evening and all day today I ended up with a whopping 475 volatile fire! very profitable wait I must say).
After about an 8 hour wait, and just a few minutes before spawning, another 85 hunter showed up and camped. NPC scan went off and I got over to him first - he spawned at the southern point - popped a Prismatic Elixir, and tried to pop Deterrence but my fishing pole was still equipped, and not to waste time with another hunter there I just started the tame. Yeah well Terropene killed me.. I couldn't believe it. I saw the other hunter start his tame before I went to the graveyard, and rushed back. When I got back, the other hunter was gone, and Terropene was a few yards up the lava heading north (I assume the other hunter died also!)
This time I went to equip my weapon, and in my haste couldn't find the dang thing, so I equipped one of the melted cleavers I fished up (ha!) hit deterrence and started taming again. This time he was mine. Muhahaha!
I named him Rockstar. Totally worth the total 14 hour wait :)
i tamed him at 10:57pm server time on proudmoore, last night. then again today, on a different hunter of course, at 2:33pm. i was hoping it'd be closer to the 12 hour timer, but when 15 hours came and went i thought i'd not get him before i had to go to work, but then he suddenly appeared right before i was about to give up. both times he was on the south western part, i guess you'd call it.
Tamed him 35 minutes ago (04:05 server time) on Hellfire, on that northern/western super-short patrol track.
WORST STORY EVER! So I have been waiting for days like everyone basically and I have been talking with this other player who just tamed him earlier today and he says he tamed him at 1pm. I leave to go to the auction house and come back at 11:30 to wait out the rest of the night and the guy is taming him again just as I show up. Literally missed him by one minute after 3 @&$! days! Why would anyone tame him twice! So mad right now. Darrowmere server by the way.
** Dumb Luck**
Im a lvl 85 NE hunter on Exodar and after reading all of the horror stories online about trying to get this bad boy i pretty much gave up. Now and then i'll zone in and do a quick fly-by but i alwase see other hunters and never see Terrorpene. This morning about 4:50 AM i decided to pop in and take a look and there he was. I flew right in, drank a haste pot and ate a haste food and tamed him 1st try. nobody else was camped and i didnt have NCP scan loaded. less then 3 minutes later a horde hunter landed next to me and gave a big salute. I bowed and ported back to SW as a very happy hunter. this is a very sexy looking pet with stunning graphics when you look at up close.
Just dinged 85 and did a tour for Sambas and Karoma with no joy, head to Mount Hyjal and checked for all the rares, no luck. Until I get to Terropene, found him as soon as I got there, no camping for once and just tamed him. So happy.
This guy is really hard to tame, not hard himself, but he's dead and AWOL most of the time. Then when you do go there to his flame pond, there's already 1-2 other hunters just WAITING for him to show up. Only thing I can say that will help is to just keep coming back later, or que up for your BGs while hovering over the lava with track beast up.
I went to the lake earlier and he wasn't there. Was also a Worgen Hunter(I'm horde) just waiting for him to spawn. No reason to wait if there's competition on top of everything. Pricks will kill the mob just to prevent you from taming it for yourself.(Which just makes it harder for them to get their own since that one will have been wasted and you'll need ANOTHER one. I fail to see their logic here.)
But once you have one, he's a really pimp pet. People like to target your pet A LOT in large BGs(AV, TB), so it helps to have a pet specced for full tankage with Shield Wall instead of dps. There's no tank pet more pimp than Terrorpene(Inless you can get exotic anyway).

I tamed Terrorpene yesterday. I was lvl 84, no potions, no buffs, it was my first attempt.
After tame, I had 25% hp left.
There were no other hunters.
Just tamed Terrorpene at 10:43 server on Aerie Peak (US) with my level 83 hunter and it was a little worrisome at the end of the tame but if I'd done it the correct way it could have been much easier. I'm fairly well geared so I have 60k health atm but started the fight 1-3k down from dismounting and falling in lava. Since I literally logged in to see him right under me I forgot my engineering haste in my gloves, my engineering shield, my haste pots, and finished the tame with about 1.5-2k health and a happy grin. Congrats to all who have tamed this awesome pet, and good luck to those that have yet to tame him.

I've been reading a lot of useful comments on this little bugger, and thought I'd create an account and provide my own...
I had a friend tame this guy at 3:38PM on Zul'jin. So, I at least had base time to work with. I checked back at the 6 hour mark and found nothing. I checked back at the 8, 10, and 12 hour marks and found nothing. But, I decided to stay up a bit longer and finally saw him at 4:38AM which was right on 13 hour mark.
I was a level 82 with around 52k hp. I did have a Lesser Flask of Resistance and Mark of the Wild which seemed to make a huge difference considering all of horror stories I've heard of hunters my level trying to tame him.
Popped Hysteria from a disposable Core Hound, dismissed him, Potion of Speed, and my health didn't drop below 85%. He still hits for 10k a tick about every .75 sec, but the resistances only let him hit me for 4-5k. Nothing for a 5-6sec tame.
Good luck to everyone! Hope this helps as much as the other comments on here have helped me.
lvl 82 Hunter
Just tamed on Ragnaros/Eu 12:05 +2/Turkey
After spending 8 Days of farming for Sambas* I had finally tamed him..But it was really hard and exhausting..So I decided not to farm for Terrorpene.. After like 20-25 days..Today I was in queue for Random Bg..and was doing some mining in Hyjal..Then I came to Pool of fires to fish some Volatile Fire..Thats when the npcscan scared the hell out of me :D...I suddenly got afraid..and /target terrorpene..He was slowly wandering in the fire pools...First I tried to freeze him..But it didnt work :S and while doing so he killed me with his strage fire channel...I got afraid that some other hunter might got him while I was ressurrecting..But noone was there..I tried again to freeze him..but didnt work again..Then I realize that I just need to tame beast to tame..no need for Freezing...But he killed me for a 2nd time :D...This time I went again..and started to channel Tame best..he really hits like a truck :S...with my 15k HP left, I finally managed to tame him :D..That was really cool...Especially cus I didnt spent even a minute to farm him..He came to me :D...
He is gonna be a real good friend for my Solo Raids :)
If you're gunna camp this guy you really should take advantage of fishing while in the area. There's a lot of fiery pools that have a 100% drop rate on Volatile Fires. That's a Volatile Fire every cast if you aren't catching junk from gimp skill lvl(If you aren't up to 400, use a lure. Then you shouldn't catch junk.). These things throw into the AH for like 25g each on some servers. I got like 20 of them in 10 mins! Even on my crap server that has them valued at only a mere 15g each, that's 15g x 20 fires in 10mins! There isn't much that can beat that farm wise. There's a good 20 or so fires to be had before you exhaust the pools, meaning that you may as well leave after wards and come back later. Another good idea is to just fish them all, que for a BG, then when you get out they are all back again!
No reason you can't make some extremely easy gold while you're wasting time out in Hyjal every day looking for this rare turtle. If nothing else you hearth out with gold in your pocket as opposed to nothing. I'm making some real profit in my hunt for this turtle pet.
I was in Mount Hyjal last night at 7:05pm server time for Cenarius and he spawned right in front of me at the eastern point of his trail. I couldn't believe the luck...hadn't even been there a full minute when he showed up! I've recently dinged 85 and my health is about 95k and couldn't see my health bar anymore when the tame was done...didn't use anything special and was SOOOO glad I didn't die before the tame completed!
Tamed Terrorpene at 11:22 am realm time today on Baelgun after waiting for 5 hours. He spawned in the eastern cove next to the magma elite guy and started walking west through the lava out of the cove when I began the tame. I'm 85 with average ilevel of 333...and I thought he was going to kill me. I used no haste potions or anything, just a straight tame. It was close.
Just tamed this at 22:43pm ST on Darkspear EU.
Was amazingly lucky to come across this awesome pet by chance. Thought i'd go have a look around for him after a chat with some guildies about cool looking pets. BAM there he was. Had a total panic as i am only a lvl 83 hunter in pretty sad gear. Fortunately my Shammy mate was nearby and managed to help me through the taming process.
Few deaths and some really tense moments but now he is mine!
GL to all
Jeeze well I really didnt want this guy but i tamed him anyways cause I love having unique rare pets. Took me about 4 times to realise I cant do this as is so I got Mountian trout (cooked for haste) Prismatic potions, mighty speed elixer, and afew potion of speed and I did it! Took me to 1/2 health before I was tamed (had about 60k) But anyways Now that I look at him hes kinda cute. I named him Aiden which means fiery in celtic.
Tamed him on Durotan-US at 7:22am. His Burning Hatred really, really hurts. Brought me from over 100k to 40k.
Wow I waited 4 days to tame this guy after a horror story of another player taming him twice for no reason. Today flew by and he was there just walking around. I asked 5 other hunters before one actually wanted him. Wow. I would have died if someone asked me if I wanted him without camping him. Oh well it feels pretty good to help somebody get him after what I went through. 1030pm on darrowmere server. Hope he enjoys it!
I was doing rated BGs and just to kill time, decided to fly around.. and since hyjal was close to org, went there. Then on another whim, decided to find out where terrorpene spawns. Noted the area.. then created a simple macro.. /tar terro.
Went there, clicked macro once and there he was. Easy for a lvl 85 hunter to tame him, didnt even break a sweat. :)
I began to doubt if this was indeed a rare spawn and if people really wanted him. But seeing the posts here, I guess he is.
FYI, it took me several days of farming to get the 4 northrend spirit beasts.
Afkautoshot, Horde, Blackrock.
Edit: I also see on the posts a lot of problems with his damage to the hunter while taming him. As I mentioned since I was in a raid for rated BGs and had full vicious pvp gear, terrorpene's damage barely even br
