Cloud Serpent Hunter Pet Guide
Cloud Serpent Hunter Pets
Cloud Serpents are a new breed of Hunter pet being added in Shadowlands and patch 9.0. Even though they are very unique, they are just a part of the regular
family, which means all three Hunter specializations can tame and use them.
Hunters can tame Cloud Serpents innately, but all other races must acquire the
item in order to unlock Cloud Serpent taming.
Serpent pets have the Cunning specialization and their special ability is
. You can learn more about pet abilities in the
Shadowlands Hunter Pet Guide
Hunters (both Alliance and Horde) can tame Cloud Serpents without any special requirements.
All other races must first acquire the
tome. This item is sold by
in the Jade Forest for a small amount of gold. The catch is you need to be exalted with the
in order to buy it.
Note that the tome unlocks Cloud Serpent taming for your whole account which means if you are exalted with another character, you can buy it there to unlock it on your account. You must use the book on your exalted character (any class can use it). If you are not exalted on any characters, you can check out how to earn reputation in Wowhead's

Cloud Serpent Tames
Navigate with the tabs below to find out where to tame each type of Cloud Serpent There are currently 9 unique appearances, but many more exist in game so hopefully we'll see more in the future.
Ivory Cloud Serpent
(Mogu Assault phase only) is a rare spawn that "drops" a mount when you use the
on it. However, it can also be tamed if you are both in war mode and have the
toy active, making the creature hostile to you. Since you must be standing on solid ground for taming, a good spot is on top of the gate at 4.13, 56.93. This cloud serpent flies very quickly so you must cast tame beast as soon as you see it. Keep in mind this rare is in very high demand for the mount it drops, so if you don't have any luck you can try again when everyone is busy in Shadowlands.
Red Cloud Serpent
are the common cloud serpents you'll find all over the
Dark Cloud Serpent
s can be found on the northernmost island of
, accompanied by Shan'ze Serpentbinders.
flies high around Mount Neverest in
. This one can be difficult to tame because there are few places to stand where you'll be in range to pull it, and at max level you will easily one-shot it with any gear on.
Dark Cloud Serpent with Blue Accents
appears during Mogu Assaults in the
and only when the
world event is up.
is available during Mogu Assaults in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms and can be found all over the western half of the zone.
Thundering White Cloud Serpent
A new method to tame
s in the
(N'zoth Assault phase) was discovered by
. Normally these cloud serpents are friendly, but you can make them unfriendly by being in Warmode and using the
toy. Then it's just a matter of walking up and taming one of them! You'll find them near the flight master at Mistfall Village.
Thundering Black Cloud Serpent
is going to be a little difficult to tame as you'll be competing with all of the players killing it for the matching mount it drops,
. Huolon spawns every 30-60 minutes, and you may have better luck during the wee hours.
Thundering Blue Cloud Serpent
is another difficult tame because it's a world boss that is constantly camped for the ultra rare mount it drops,
. Nalak respawns every 15 minutes or so. Good luck!
Thundering Red Cloud Serpent
(original Mists of Pandaria phase) will prove to be a much simpler tame than the other thundering serpents. You'll find this one at the bottom of the the Guo-Lai Halls in the north of the zone. You may need to speak to
in order to phase back to the old version of the zone.
Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent
spawns during the first boss encounter in the
dungeon. Make sure you don't have any gear equipped that can proc direct damage, as it could proc from casting Tame Beast and one-shot the serpent. If the serpent says untameable, try going into the dungeon in Normal mode.
can only be tamed by brand new Pandaren Hunters who haven't yet chosen a faction, as it spawns in the
, the raid boss from
Heavenly Blue Cloud Serpent
spawns during Mogu Assaults in the
, at the bottom of Guo-Lai Halls. This is the same rare that drops the
. Keep in mind that it is level 52 so you won't be able to tame it during the 9.0 pre-patch when you'll only be level 50.
Astral Cloud Serpent
is the second to last boss in the
raid, and it differs from other cloud serpents because it's a member of the
family instead of the Serpent family, which means it's only available to Beast Mastery Hunters. This raid can easily be soloed by a level 50+ Hunter at any difficulty. Note that Elegon does not require the

Thank u Bendak! marvelous
I was unable to tame Tsulong or the one in Shado-Pan Monastery. Not sure what the deal is. I did manage to get Milau though.
Thundering White Cloud Serpents(
) are really tameable (or at least
Tsulong is not tameable right now
, hope it will be fixed soon
UPD: Azure Serpent from Shado-Pan Monestry(Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent)
as tameable with
Learned how to tame Cloud Serpents from the book last night, which my huntress Meliisande purchased on her own, as she is exalted with the faction.
Tamed Nalak and Elegon the night of prepatch, and a Crimsonscale on the Timeless Isle today.
Traveled back in time to tame Milau a little later, and am being told that I don't know how to tame Cloud Serpents. Yet I still have Nalak and Elegon with me.
I'm sending my druid Rowain to buy the book and mail it to Meliisande, hoping that she'll be able to re learn this ability and tame Milau. Submitted a bug report for this. Anyone else having this issue?
I'll update soon as I can.
-- UPDATE --
Meliisande re-learned the Cloud Serpent taming ability from another copy of the book and was able to successfully tame Milau. Hoping to hear back from Blizzard with a fix on this.
It's working fine for me. I now have one hunter with 2 x Tsulong. Went into Terrace on normal and tamed it. Backed out, changed to heroic then went back in and tamed it again. Did the same with Elegon on another hunter.
In case you were wondering. Yu'lon will not be tamed, not on the Timeless Isle nor in the Temple of the Jade Serpent.
Is it possible to learn the skill via buying the Tome with my Exalted Main and learning it through him instead of having to exalt my hunter to buy the book and learn it?
I am having a hard time taming Nalak because everyone keeps killing him. It's funny how before he was tameable no one really wanted anything to do with him. I think that Blizz/Activison should remove his aggro table.
Its bad enough fighting over tames, even worse when we feel we need to get two of them for our animal companion talent. The talent uses whatever is in the first slot of the stable as the second pet. Blizzard really needs to make it so that if that first slot is blank, it will use our currently summoned beast as our second pet. 20 pages of stable slots is a nice upgrade from what we had unless we feel we have 2 of every unique beast. I would like to eventually see the stable as a tab in our collections, similar to the appearance tab, and still use the stable masters to pick the pets from our stable collection.
Easiest way to get Rajani Warserpents join a PvP group in the vale kill other plays till the N'Zoth toy quest pops accept the quest but dont use the toy yet. Go land right next to the Rajani Warserpents by the flight master then use the toy and tame you 2 fresh White WarSerpents.
For double taming Elegon, here is what you will need to do. First, make sure raid is set to normal difficulty. Make your way to Elegon, tame, and hearth. Then you need to fly to the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, talk to Zidormi and time hop back to the old Pandaria. Once that is done, enter the seat of Knowledge and speak to Lorewalker Han and ask him to tell you about the vault of mysteries. This will queue you for the LFR version of the appropriate section of Mogu'shan Vaults to tame your second Elegon. Work your way back down to Elegon once again, tame, and viola! You are now the proud new owner of not one, but TWO sparkle dragons!
So I have managed to tame Elegon , I can't tame the Wild Onyx Serpent in Kun-lai nor can I tape the Azure Serpent in Shadow-pan monastery
When i use the Sliver of N'zoth and try to tame the Rajani Watersperpent it says I don't know how to tame Cloud Serpents, even though I've already tamed cloud serpents before this. Did they try to hotfix the Sliver work around?
is BOA, so don't fly out there with your new max level hunter to learn this. Fly out with your exalted toon and have them buy it!
Thanks to Petopia I found another of likely tamable versions of Dark Serpent which should have Golden accents
. Sadly I completed quest
during which this version spawn on my hunter 6 years ago.
Currently I'm thinking about "Party Sync", but it would be great if someone who knows more about this could share their experience.
ironic that the normal looking ones are mostly untameable, but the heavenly onyx one is fairly easy to get.
I hope one day, that htey will make the yellow/orange'ish one available to tame.
