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.
Thanks for telling me :D
Now I won't have to look today
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!
Tamed on this date, December 30th 2010 at 10:45am Mal'Ganis server time. Spent nearly 24 hours camping this sucker. Got it without any problems. No traps necessary if at 85, lower levels might wanna use some caution; those attacks hurt like hell.
You don't need the Core Hound. Just use Deterrence.
As usual put a trap right in front of me, then
Almost got killed before taming cast completed ,
use a trap launcher :P
has several details about time/date/coordinates/ and his abilities
Edit: Since it used ranged attck, I haven't been able to confirm if he was immune to traps
Someone really puts hardwork to downrate my stuff
why would you wana give someone cp for tha...ooooh u mean copper piece not...nvm
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.
Named him "Crush" after the turtle in Finding Nemo :)
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
Just tamed him on Hyjal at about 1:40am server time. He was coming north from the South-East part of that lava pool, I tamed him at about 54,79. He hits pretty hard, like others have said. I had just under 100k HP. I popped a haste potion and had just under 50% health left when I tamed him.
I found him on my first visit, right after I finally found Sambas aswell! :D
Beast Mastery not needed, I'm a survival hunter, didn't even re-spec to tame it or use it. It is
YES! After looking and waiting forever I finally got him. 1:30 pm Realm time on Deathwing. He is bigger than I thought he was going to be before I tamed him. After popping a potion of speed, a prismatic Elixir , Drums of Forgotten Kings, and Deterrence I only lost 10k health during the entire tame at level 85.
Good luck to all still hunting, definitely worth the wait!
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.
Not on my server. Have been out here two days running. Heard someone tamed at 4:30am server time and then another hunter came along at 1:20pm and tamed him again.
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!
I camped this guy for about a week, and when NPCscan finally goes off, he's no where to be found, which leaves me to believe that Terrorpene is affected by phasing issues.
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
Gee, so sorry. Had no idea that telling people you don't need a core hound to tame this was not useful information. Anyone who doesn't have BM offspec would probably like to know this.
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.
In spanish it means, Horrorpenis, gl with it
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!
Horror Penis (eng), Pene del Horror (esp)
Terror is a synonym for Horror, so this is, as vulgar as it sounds, accurate. Quite funny, too.
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?
15 hrs.... still nothing on bronzebeard EU..... altho 2 tames were known of on the 4th >.>
She has spawned in front of my face four times now, all at the same spot 55,76 - between those two boulders. And I have seen her pat up at 51,73 and I followed her and she just pats from there to her spawn spots and back, she never ventures SE. I have never seen her spawn or pat near the SE section that is indicated on the above map, doesn't mean she doesn't but out of seeing her five times in the same area you might want to hang up there and just Eagle Eye the SE section.
Speed Potion + Earthen Potion + max tame distance worked for me at lvl83 but it did get hairy towards the end.
Named mine Cinderella and I love her :D
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.

How cool would it be if this was also a mount? :p
And it could make wonky squaky noises like the actual turtle mount. That would just be bizarre
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
blizz -- bigtime fail on the 25g vendor trash he drops, needs to give you a debuff -1000 to all stats for a month if you kill him...
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 tak
