Cant wait to tame this wonderful pet.....Located in Storm Peaks...
PS woot first POST
Excellent descriptions of known spawn points so far:
Two alli hunters guarding the metal disk point, another alli hunter guarding the Harpy point. Now if I can only stay awake hovering outside the snowdrift cave for the next few hours... :)
Spawns identified during PTR:
Got first spawn on Feathermoon-US at these locations 27 hours after patch went live, our second tame was 18 hours after that (and 16 hours after a rolling restart). Hunters from other servers were reporting tames within 2-3 hours of 3.2 hitting. TLDR: random spawn is random.
Would almost certainly expect one or two more spawn locations to be discovered given how many the other spirit beasts have.
I had looked for him for a grand total of 39hrs. and 30-45mins. I knew of other hunters getting him over the past couple of days, and all of them were taming him at the spawn point in the Foote Steppes above the village (Titan coords 46, 65), same place I ended up taming him after all that time. For additional screenshots, visit Ladye E's blog at Guild Portal. I uploaded a few of him in beastial wrath. He's massive!
Titan Panel Coords: 46,65 (above Brun. Village), 11:27-ish PM Alaska Time/ 2:27-ish AM server time.
i have him tamed on video here:
I was able to tame Skoll on the Velen server on August 4th @ 7 PM, at coords 45.62, the one right above Brunnhildar Village. He literally spawned in front of me as I was going through my bags making room for more borean leather as I waited this bad boy's arrival. Now, I am constantly inundated with questions from ppl on my server asking me where I acquired him and what type of pet is he? *FYI, he is a Rare Elite level 80 Ferocity pet and can only be tamed/utilized while in the BM spec*.
From other sites, I believe that Skoll's respawn timer is 6 hours. Other coords I have been told he spawns at are
I hope this information proves useful to other hunters in search of this guy. My only problem now is that I need more stable slots in case any more spirit beasts or other "must have" pets are released in upcoming patches, lol. In my stable, I currently have (in order of acquisition)
Ghost Saber, Loque'nahak, Gondria, Sentry Worg & Skoll.
Good luck and happy hunting!
Tamed him at 30.2, 64.7.
Skoll is pretty noticeable as a pet in the Hunter community. There's no real confirmation on his spawn time, from my own experiences it took well over 32 hours for him to spawn on my realm (after going live). There are plenty of reports where he spawns again in a reasonable time though, so if you're planning to camp him, keep in mind that he is a rare spawn and that these guys do not generally have a specific timer you can just set a clock to.
Anyways, some useful notes about Skoll:
He does retain the lightning effect around his body when tamed. This lightning is also audible when idle.
He does have a unique sound compared to regular worgs, but it is not as loud as Loque'nahak. It is much more subtle.
He is also larger than a standard saber worg; he doesn't shrink much when tamed.
He comes with
Claw and Prowl
(and the obvious Spirit Strike ability). No Furious Howl, no Bite.
Found him at Bor's Breath, just southeast of the village with the plagued drakes. The following is a macro that I used to track Skoll, though there are helpful addons such as ESN Rare and NPC scan which may be more helpful to others.
This particular macro will play Illidan's "You are not prepared!" line when it targets the spawn; I used it because it was loud and attention-grabbing (which will come in handy in the longer camping hours).
Map: (I did not make this map, it was provided by WoWKevin from
Good luck to all who camp!
OMG I just got him 30 min ago on my Hunter while reading this..hahaha I never thought I would get it. This baby is bad!
Another pic of me in Ogrimmar
I picked up Skoll on the Undermine server on 8/8/09 at 3:17am. Had been searching for him non-stop since 8/5/09. Had logged out to go to bed at 3:15am, wondered if he was gonna be evil and spawn after I logged out, logged back in at 3:17 and there he was! At the 45,62 spawn point. I was standing with the disk to my left, the blue people village to my back, and Skoll was walking towards me along the cliff to my right. I saw one alliance player with it and switched sides and found out there are apparently 2 alliance with it already and me on the horde side.
Just make sure you put your freezy trap at your feet, he has a jumping attack that can skip a placed trap.
I tamed him at Snowdrift Plains, the little canyon that goes to Valkryion Village. at 3:50 thats one official spot he will be at at least
My NPCScan addon has been going crazy about this rare lately whenever I'm in Dalaran. For some reason, however, I can't target him. Very odd.
This beast is easily found and can be added to your time lost/vy macro.
As far killing him (im not a hunter didnt realise it wasnt added to the
achievement) it is very easy infact far more easy compare to other mobs in that area i have found.
here is where i have found him (
), i also suggest camping that spot as both vyragosa and time lost fly by there so little effort for 3 rares.
Just found and tamed him at 9:45 pm server time, durotan, at the south snowdrift plains spot. Well worth the 2 days camped. Very awesome spirit beast, best of luck to those trying to tame him!
I tamed him on my server Haomarush the day after the patch came out. I was mining ore for my guild bank in Storm Peaks in that canyon between Valkyrion and Snowdrift Plains and remembered that there was supposed to be a new spirit beast around here somewhere. Hit Track Beasts on a whim and lo-and-behold! A yellow dot. Spirit beasts are supposed to be neutral right? Mouse over... Skoll!
He's an elite 80 so I laid down a freezing trap, and popped off a concussive shot. The CS slowed him down but the trap didn't faze him at all. He got me down to a third of my health before I finished taming but in the end, I got him :)
The lightning makes electrical sounds when he's out and when you hit Bestial Wrath the lightning crackles red throughout his body! His size is very big even after he's been tamed, almost as tall as my toon, and when under the effects of Bestial Wrath his size grows to above your head! :) Took him to a few Guild-run heroics and our guild master/tank asked if I had Growl on since he seemed to be pulling the mobs off him, but I never have my pets on Growl in instances so there may be a few problems there.
I was originally told that he's supposed to be on a 6 hour spawn timer. From what I've read so far however, it's longer than that so I was really lucky, especially since I wasn't even camping for him (which makes me feel a little guilty due to all my fellow hunters who are looking for him). One of my friends was looking for him so I suggested the macro
It's simple but hey- it worked!
Good luck to all the BM hunters out there! He's gorgeous and a wonderful addition to my furry family!
EDIT: If you have the addon PetEmote, it seems to take him for a cat because the emote says that he meows and purrs... I just say that Skoll is going through an identity crisis ^.^
here is a video of me taming him south of the snowdrift plains
please dont post hate comments.
I Was the 3rd hunter on Korgath to tame Skoll. I did this with the help of the 1st hunter to tame skoll. Together we learned that.
Skoll DOES'NT share a timer with the Lost Drake and Other rare spawns in Storm Peaks.
We camped Skoll, then Came back shortly after and saw Vyragosa.
As this wolf is a
, he will not only eat meat but also fish. All the other attributes of a spirit beast apply as well so he can
It is classed as exotic and can therefor only be tamed by BM hunter's with the Beast Mastery talent. When using dual spec, this wolf cannot be used as MM or Surv hunter so it stays in it's stable. You won't lose your exotic pet.
I'm not even going to name him, I like the fact that it says spirit beast over his head.
New Spirit beast in 3.2!..
Skin: Blue wolf with lightning effects.
Hostile: Yellow for both ally and horde a.k.a Neutral mob.
Location: Storm peaks
Amount of spawn places: 3 known so far.
I can confirm that the Spirit beast named Skoll does not share respawn time with Vyragosa and by that not with
( Time lost proto drake ) neither.
Vyragosa killed and found: 14:56
Skoll found and tamed: 17:42
Both is realm time..
Skoll ( w Bestial wrath )
Skoll (w/o Bestial wrath )
Download the addon:
Reason: This addon will give you a raid warning and a achievment lookin bar with the portrait of the mob when its around you, this means you do not have to spam a macro or anything to target it, you can stay afk, and when the rare is within range of your characters sight, you get a warning and a sound will be played ( loud )..
It may be more, but these is the 3 known ones and confirmed a found.
But: Me and my friend found both at same places, above Brunnhildar village.
I forgot to mention.
Its a wolf but its not kind of a wolf,
Since this pet got
I find this pet very unique since its the only Wolf with prowl.
But stil, the pet miss some abilities as a wolf.
The fact that a Wolf without Furious howl, ain't good.
But it seems that we got more positive sides out of this Wolf that others.
Its now been spotted Skoll a
FIFTH place in Storm peaks.
Feel free to ask in game for tips

When Im updated, I update this Topic.
Happy hunting !
this post was so unnecessarily long
I am a hunter, survival with dual speccing, and BM as off.
Yesterday (August 9th, 2009) I had spotted Skoll on my paladin, and raced to storm peaks on my hunter to tame it.
Today (August 10th, 2009) I spotted Skoll again on my hunter, far away from where I had tamed it in the first place.
First time I saw it, I had tamed it north of Brunnhildar Village, today I spotted it again south of Snowdrift Plains. I killed it there, dropped
(Of the Sorcerer) and an adventurer's satchel. (Sorry I had to kill it, I had tamed it yesterday, and I want it to stay rare ;] )
I tamed it at 5:00PM server yesterday, today I killed it 1:00PM server.
, Respawn timer is not shared with the other rares, Respawn is probably about 10-20 hours, and the corpse is skinnable.
(Note: I do not have skinning, anybody know what it drops?)
Just tamed Skoll, still shaking. Server, Lothar at 14:45 hours server time. Location 46.65.
I tamed this awesome beauty yesterday night.
I was doing some dailies in Icecrown, when I got a tell from my most awesome friend Pulsars. He said "I'm going to go find you the new spirit beast so be ready to come when I call you."
I said "ok, I'm just doing dailies." you know, no big deal.
About two minutes later. I get a tell saying "COME QUICK. I got him."
I about had a heart attack. Mounted up and hauled ass to the Stormpeaks. I was already in a group when I was on my way there, so I just flew right to where he was at. Pulsars had found him at the spawn point right north of Brunhildar Village. He must have just spawned, or Pulsars has the best hacks :) Either way. I'm STOKED. I might be the first on the server with him. I've been sitting in dal a few times and I get flooded with tells asking me where I got him and how I got him. If he's a rare spawn or what, and I haven't seen anyone else with him on Illidan yet.
When I tamed him, I didn't use any traps or anything. And I did have the most awesome druid with me to ensure I didn't die. :) He does hit like a truck, by the time I was done taming him my health was half way gone :O ! THE coolest looking pet IN THE GAME! And just to show Pulsars how much I appreciated him. I named him Pulsarsjr. heheheheheh! <3333
Just got him 12am ST on Dragonblight EU
Snowdrift Plains 28, 51
Word of warning: Very cool pet but the electrical fizzing noise he makes is becoming kinda tiresome and I've only had him for 40 minutes. I'm on the look out for an addon which mutes it - if anyone knows of one or can write one, please post a link :)
(What's with all the downrated comments? People are posting potentially useful information about spawn points/ times. Okay, spawn times are random but even so, patterns may emerge which could come in handy. I'm not posting this to gloat, I'm posting it in the hope it will help others).
I down rated a couple of the more useles ones but even the useful ones are getting down rated dont get why, but you get a + rating for saying so keke, this gets down rated as its useless
Well, ladies and gentleman, I have some VERY exciting and helpful news to post.
Skoll has a 10-12 hour timer, approximately. NOT a 6 hour timer like many assume.
Skoll spawned for a belf hunter on my server around 2am this morning (Aug 10th) then later today, a hunter in my guild tamed him at 12:23pm (Aug 10th). There was no spawn between 2am and 12pm.
So Skoll is definitely on a 10-12 hour timer.
I hope this is helpful for everyone!
Edit: I will keep this topic updated. I have another hunter friend who will begin searching at 10pm until Skoll spawns. If he spawns between 10pm and 12:30am we have our timer!
Tamed around 10:20 pm server on Ysera at the spawn point at 46,65.
He didn't seem to move more than 30 yards in any direction from where he spawned.
Edit - not sure why someone downranked this since I'm trying to provide helpful info on how far he paths from his spawn point
tamed on earthen ring (eu) yesterday at 20.40 nord of valkyrion
Tamed Skoll on Slivermoon at 30.2 64.6. Took me 3hrs of flying around. 1:23am sever time. Good Luck Fellow Hunters!
The 3D version of Skoll, on this web site, isn't all that great. It doesn't show the lightning effects that it has. And that's cool that they added 3, so far, spawn points for it.
Omg my npc scan found skoll and only to just see a nelf hunter taming him. I nerd raged.
Tamed this beauty as Nayki on Uther a few hours after the patch went live, presumably server 1st, at the 27,7 location
Mac here. First time poster, but a long-time fan and user of this site. WoWHead rocks, plain and simple.
I had been doing a fair amount of research into the fabled addition to the Spirit Beast family prior to 3.2's launch (PTR reports mostly). At this juncture, I had already successfully located and tamed Loque and Gondria (Thanks in huge part to this site!).
After much anticipation, 3.2 finally went live. Not ten minutes following the launch of the new patch, I located Skoll and tamed him. I was the first on my server to achieve this. Which means I was also the first on the server to have all three Spirit Beasts in the stable. A proud moment for any BM Hunter. The instant I hit Org, players of all races and classes flocked around me as they all seemed to have said in unison: "WTF is that thing?" I had the dubious task (and privilege, mind you) of explaining to everyone exactly what it was and where I found it. I was surprised at just how many Hunters were unaware that another Spirit Beast was about to grace the realm with its presence.
Another point of interest: This is important for those of you adamant about taming this amazing beast--
While I believe this one runs a longer re-spawn clock (haven't confirmed this, just a hunch), last I checked it has NOT been added to the list of Rare-Spawns that comprise the 'Frostbitten' Achievement. This Achievement in particular is one of the reasons the feline Spirit Beasts were so damned elusive. Many an achievement hunter out there and both Gondria and Loque are on that list. Stiff competition, to say the least.
That having been said, this should narrow the playing field a bit as far as Campers go. I am aware that Skoll drops a couple of cool items, but nothing I would think any Non-Hunter class would waste their time on. Unless, of course, one grows weary of camping for Mr. Time-Lost, has Skoll in his sights, and decides to kill him out of boredom.
Best of luck to all you Hunters out there gunning to tame this beast. He is well worth the hunt, I can assure you--as are all Spirit Beasts.
PS. I named him Thor--and for obvious reasons.
I was the first or 2nd on proudmoore to get him. I got the Time Lost Drake while hunting for him and 20 mins after dropping the drake I got skoll. That was a good day. I found him next to the frozen lake.
In Norse mythology, the aspects of the sun and moon are pursued through the sky by two wolves. Skoll is the wolf that pursues the sun and, at the onset of Ragnarok, will finally catch and devour it.
Skoll's brother, Hati, will do the same to the moon.
I was actually leveling my warlock when a guildy informed me that he had seen the cat Gondria, after popping over and taming him, I had a wild hunch and went searching the locations of
Lo and behold, I found him right when I flew over the pass south of snowdrift plains. NPCscan found him, and using a modified target macro id made for Loque'nahak to verify ( just in case it was a shadow melded NE hunter...)
Talk about luck... in less than 5 minutes I tamed 2 rare spirit beasts, since I already have loque from a VERY extensive and intensive hunt I currently have all the rare "cats"
Yes, when I saw him I froze inside, Took me what felt like ages to land off course of aggro, drop freeze trap and find where id hidden my tame beast, lol.
The picture doesn't do him justice, in the picture you can see what looks like sparks, well those sparks crackle all through him.
I stumbled on him by mistake while gathering leather, he was in a tree and blended in very well.
The map is correctly marked in each spot, I found him shortly after the servers came up 2:00pm EST, and he hadn't respawned at 3:40am because everyone was going nuts, for him.
I was still in the area at that time; gathering leather when I saw a friend and stopped to chat, I was getting bombarded by "go away this is my spawn spot", "I am going to report you if you don't leave", and hordies were getting pets and naming them stupid names to tell me to go away. All I can think is, what idiots, I already have him, what am I going to do with a second one, I am hunting leather and chatting with a friend. /sigh
He is an awesome pet with a sweet look, but be ready for some rude competition, and put on your thick skin.
He is yellow, so will not aggro till you start to tame him, BUT; people will kill him out of spite (saw several threats of that made).
He also has all of the skills a spirit beast does, meaning he has Spirit Strike as well as Prowl and his focus dump is Claw.
He really doesn't shrink in size much either, he is a pretty big boy.
Another important thing: These beasts are exotic! In order to tame them, you must have the 51-point Beast Mastery talent.
When I got to town and went into the bank, I was instantly spammed with "what is that", "where did you get it", "how long did it take", and a million more questions, so be ready to answer till his new wears off.
here is a video of me taming him at snowdrift plains
on Dawnbringer USA
Amen to that.
I found him in the spot outside Valkyrion after a lot of time camping since patch day... start the tame, and then a rogue came and killed it in front of me... man...
Tamed skoll 8/12/09 at 5am server time on Korialstrasz coords 46,65
i am a auchindoun belf hunter and found this beast on luck tbh ... i have looked up his spawn points before he was on WoWhead and made a nice map for my guild mates and other hunter friends as no one knows his exact walking range
yes he is a spirit beast and ofc you need to be BM even though he looks like a wolf he has cat attacks but just look at him!
he is worth it x3 though i hate having him out when im in dalaran or something ... you have no idea how much spam you will get D: but i was flying about his spawn points and my computer over heated so i had to to wait 4 hours to log back on and omg when i did there he was 31.64 <3
but i proved a nice little map for you and ofc like i mentioned he is a spirit beast so have you frost trap at the ready :) and so glad hes a level 80 elite saves time on leveling <3
even better hes not part of teh frostbitten achivment so gives all hunters a better chance to get him :) i know on my realm there are about 4+ more horde with him
My S/S didn't get approved but someone else posts several shots with my Skoll, and clearly me in it and it gets approved :(((((
Well since mine won't get accepted, SBHOBBES's picture is my skoll. Chillin in Dal showin him off. : /
Fellow hunters out there... you are so absolutely going to hate my guts for saying this, but... i seriously found this handsome spirit worg only 3 minutes after learning he even existed. This is NOT a joke. I had expected one weeks worth of circling, like it was for me with Loque'nahak, but apparently the Big Guy Upstairs has some sense of mercy.
To the technical stuff... I used the "YOU ARE NOT PREPARED"-sound macro... worked like charm. I also followed this map
... so kudos to the guy who made it.
Ok guys my story is diffrent i just heard about this beast yesterday and Tbh my main is a DK now but for the thrill i wanted to tame this beauty ;)
i charged my self with cafein and i started flying to all the paths that i saw from the peeps comments.
At that time there was only around 5 hunters circulating there, not to drive my self crazy i opened my GF laptop and i started leveling her Pala while looking at my screen hoping NPC Scan will do her job.
After hours and hours i decide to fly along the path spaming my macro and there he was near the Engine of the makers .. no need to tell u what happend to me .. dancing striping laughing and crying ;P
My advice is to go old school spam the macro
sorry it was 4:12 am relam time Lightbringer server
meh, I found TLPD after about five minutes of camping for this guy on my hunter. Had to go farm epic flying for another toon. >_<
downrank from hell inc, whatever
Helped a guildie tame him on Alterac Mountains server, at 30.50 - 10:00 PM server time
27,50, normal marked spawn point, just hiding behind the tree
This mob moves about 5 steps either side of his spawn point.
He does not patrol at all, so just check the 'L' shaped spawn point route.
Easy tame, no frost trap, didnt even bother going max range.
Good luck all.
Edit: Killed him this morning, +20 hrs after i tamed him. This time at 46,65 right by that circular grate thingy on the floor. Again, he just moves a few steps on way then the other.
Times spotted as assorted from current comments -
P.S. Please don't downgrade posts containing "Tamed at X server, Y coords, Z hour".
Skoll just spawned for me at 46, 65 twisting nether EU (graveyard near brunhilldar)
22.15/ 10.15 pm
I almost forgot to drop my current pet and trap and pushing the tame button >< longest 20 secs ever
edit: forgot to put in the time
I'm probably the 7th or 8th in Azjol Nerub.
As far as I remember, here were the spawn times (server time) and locations:
Fri 4:00AM 29,50 (Dirkee, 5:00AM at the Engine.)
Fri 1:50PM 46,65
Mon 2:30PM 46,65
**new** Mon 7:30PM 46,65 (someone not in our group)
Tue 8:30PM 29,50
Wed 5:15PM 46,65 (Vyragosa 5:20PM at Brunnhildar Village)
Thu 1:56PM 46,65 my tame
**new** Fri 11:34PM 29,50 (friend's)
**new** Mon 8:30PM 29,50 (friend's)
1. There are only two spawn points. Skoll pats from the Brunnhildar disk to the Frozen Tombs or cave to the north.
2. Skoll probably pats from Snowdrift Plains down to the frozen lake past Valkyrion.
3. Skoll has his own randomized timer and location.
- threats to kill Skoll while others are taming
- one player going around showing off Skoll just to trigger npcscans of others
- false spawn times whispered or posted in General
- those three bots farming at Snowdrift Plains, they come up at regular times
Skoll spawned on our server at 22:15 /10.15 pm on Thursday.
last time Skoll spawned was on last Monday that was somewhere between 8.30am and 4pm
I remember doing a last patrol before work and i saw a horde hunter camping there he had been there the whole night and when i got back from work he was gone, i checked armory and he got Skoll.(so i know he got it between 8.30 and 4pm)
GOT HIM! Finally after watching for him all day! At about 1:15am server time caught him at cords 27, 50. He is beautiful! Good luck hunters.
Exodar Realm......My girl had been camping this one for 2 days....friend of ours caught it at 9:13am today Aug 14....she camped all day didnt see nething ...she finally tamed him at 11:10pm today Aug 14....so that gives a 14 hr block of time for spawn timers to start working with .....GL all
Tamed Skoll on Friday August 14th, Medivh US at 8:45PM server. Got him at 29,48. NPCscan is a must for him because of the demand for him. It will give you an edge to quickly know he's there and tag him quickly.
I have the other 2 as well and have noticed that since the demand is high for Skoll, Loque'nahak and Gondria seem to be available with less competition. Good luck to all Hunters!
Tamed day of patch at 1:07pm at coords 27.4,50.3 haven't seen him since.
Camping wasn't a issue either since there was only two of us and the other guy was a nelf *snicker*
Skoll is very much a vanity pet since he is not at the top of the DPS pet charts (out of intial testing, out of the three spirit beasts, his DPS was slightly less then both Gondy and Loque.)
The attention he is getting is insane however so definately bring him along on some PUG runs, if for nothing else but the humour factor of seeing people flip. Am finding not many have heard of this spirit beast this time round.
Found him at Garm, at 46, 80ish at 3:39pm. He patted near the mountains.
Someone in my guild had just caught him about an hour before at the Brunnhildar spot. I was heading to do dailies and flew over him, when npcscan alerted me and I nearly dismounted a few hundred feet in the air. I'd been told he had a 1 day cooldown and wasn't prepared for him.
Tamed him today at 8:30am Server Time on Turylon (East Coast) cords 27,50. There was a Server restart in process and spawned 4mins before server shutdown. Man it was close and btw make sure you use frost trap he deals alot of damage. Most hunters on this server that have this pet are horde, i am one of the 1st alliance to tame him. Good Luck Everyone, He's def the best looking pet out there. :)
So, i was skinning with my Druid north of Valkyrion and I saw some guy ask if anyone had seen Skoll a bunch of ppl kept on saying "oh i tamed him a week ago" or "haha your looking for him its a waste of time" and suddenly from behind my back i saw this blue wolf slowly moving behind me i told the guy about it he came took him about a min to get there and, 30seconds later he was tamed and the guy was happy. Co- ords were28.8 50.6 just a few feet away from the place it is marked at the top of the screen. hope this helps :)
Saw him at 8:47 server time Icecrown
Thank you for the Ratings. :*)
Saw Skoll, again, today on the Frozen Lake at about 10:30 PM server as he spawned right before my eyes.
Killed him cause I already have him.
He does NOT pat at all. He has seperate spawn locations, and he moves about three feet from each of them.
Found him this morning while making my rounds. NPCScan is a godsend for those of us looking for rare pets. He was quite easy to tame. Thanks to all those who have taken the time to post spawn points and times. You guys rock! Good luck and happy hunting.
Date: 8/16/09 @ 5:16am server time
Loc: 30, 64 Bor's Breath Storm Peaks
80 hunter ~ Korialstrasz Alliance
The kill may show on your map, but it does not show on other's maps. Again, please stop killing Skoll if you find him. Drenden server has a chat channel, Skoll, with folks who would love to find him!
camped Skoll at 30.64 for about 4.5 hours... spawned at 4:20pm (no kidding) on Nesingwery server.... good luck, happy hunting
Was able to tame Skoll just north of Brunnhildar Village around 9:45pm server time on the Moon Guard realm.
I was so exicted when i find him. i just happened to be talkin to one of my friends on the phone. He was telling me how good he was at snippin games. I saw him out of the corner of me screen. I set a frozen trap but he walked to far from it. So i just tamed it normal. If the channelin had been any longer i would have died lol.
Draka server. Snowdrift plains behind the trees. 1:30am centrel time.
I tamed him today (17.8.09) at the Emerald Dream server 12:20 gametime, at the 27.9, 51.1 on the way from Valkyrion to the Snowdrift Plains. I was gathering herbs, without the aim to find him. When I landed in front of a group of trees next my herb, I have seen blue sparks through the trees. He was walking back and forth at the very small place under the trees at the left side of the smal valley, invisible from the air. I was maybe 5 yards from him and I almost didn´t see him behind the trees.
I immediately went from MM spec to BM, abandoned my pet, filled in mana, and started to tame him. He bypassed my Freezing Trap, but the taming was quite easy without it. I was at the 2/3 of my health at the end.
For ppl using NPCscan - the thing announced Skoll maybe 10 sec after my seeing him, when I was long in mana-filling already.:-) Pretty long loading time, if I can tell.:P
Has anyone actually seen him within like 30 minutes of a server restart or maintenance? Just skimmed through, and I didn't see anything.
Except I did see many people finding him MANY hours after a restart. Would save a lot of time if he couldn't or has a very very low chance of being up when the servers come back up.
I'll be on the lookout to tame this puppy.
FYI, Skoll is a wolf in Norse mythology:
If I manage to tame him, he's keeping his name.
Tamed this beauty at about 5:30 mst on Nazgrel. Was just messing around in guild chat and camping the metal pad spawn point above the village when NPC scan went off. My heart was racing and my hands shaking after I got this tame. My GM already has this pet and now I do.
Named her Tesla, for obvious reasons ;)
Its all about chance, but if you check back eventually you should get it.
tamed today around 2:10 am at coörds 46,64 (the metal disc in the ground north of Brunnhildar).
Had been patrolling spawning points for a week, but then a guildy and good friend spotted it for me and I rushed in.
Good luck to other hunters out for it!
Caught this beauty last night on Skywall server at 10:45ish server time, at the Brunnhildar cliffs "hot spot" (46, 64). Had been camping for approximately 6 days total, and it was completely worth it. The last spawn I can personally confirm prior to my capture of him was almost exactly 24 hours before, when another hunter tamed him and I had missed the spawn by mere minutes. D=
As a bit of advice, offering a reward for him (alive) can be a double-edged sword... on one hand you'll get a lot of people genuinely helping you look, but you'll also get a lot of people trolling you and threatening to kill him.
Anyway, I wish you all good luck in your continued hunting, just keep at it and you'll get him eventually! =)
~Knight Killerdragon (of Storm Peaks), Skywall server.
Just tamed him at 3:21pm server time on Kirin Tor at the 46,65 spawn point (the one at the metal pad above Brunnhildar Village, essentially 12 hours after I gave up last night. While I was camping, I heard from someone in general that their guildie had tamed him earlier in the day... probably in the four hours I was sleeping and not camping. So it looks like his respawn is between 10 and 12 hours?
ETA: Heard from a fellow camper that Skoll spawned at 4:30am the night/morning before I found him, so 11 hours between then and my tame.
Edited to add "PM". That's usually helpful. :P
After 9 long days Skoll fineally spawned roughly 36 hours after server restart... we do know for a fact that he spawned at least 3 to 4 times in that 9 days at the spot we finally camped started to camp after server restart....We never saw the lost in time drake, however 26 hours before Skoll spawned Vyra passed by the same spot where I killed him.
Skoll was EASY to Tame.
I Come from Greymain Server (vary old and over populated server) the ratio to Alli and Horde on my server...Alli is 2X as much Xd so ME being a Horde to get this guy was a big deal.
Found him Just before the drop off of the frozen waterfall,Bor's Breath.
There was Aprox. 6 other hunters camping the other sights and it was around 1:30 AM Server time when..just so happens i flew RIGHT OVER HIM. Silver Dragon (Awesome add-on by the way ^.^) Did its loud "boom-boom-badee-boom" in my ear and there he was! i dropped down...frost trap and POOF! coolest Spirit beast in game MINE! *happy dance*
He has no fear effects or anything, VARY easy tame.. you just gotta be there before every other hunter in the zone drops on you XD.
Took me about 4 days of flying over each sight.
HAPPY HUNTING! to all those who don't have this amazing pet yet he's SEXY! and a chick magnet :p
Tamed at 8:32 AM server time on Kargath (U.S.) after hours of extensive searching.
Was informed by a friend who tamed him yesterday afternoon around 2:22 PM server that the spawn timer was 12-24 hours. Seems it might be set to re-spawn randomly between 6,8 or 12 hours.
Only 45 minutes before I tamed Skoll, I found the Time Lost Proto Drake dead in the valley before Bor's Breath while I was sweeping spawn points.
Just tamed Skoll last night on Medivh server, at 8:34 PM.
I was just flying around the "Skoll-triangle" between the Foot Steppes Disc, Bor's Breath and that Dwarf Cave in the Snowdrift plains while I was looking for Ore Nodes to mine.
I was spamming my /tar Skoll Macro and -BANG- Skoll lights up on in the raid warning as I was flying past the cave in Snowdrift Plains.
He was easy enough to tame. I landed up on the hill next to the cave, away from the hostile Worms and Elementals patting around the area, dropped an Ice trap, popped him with an arcane shot and commenced taming. I always make sure I don't have a pet out when I look for Skoll and that I'm in BM spec so there's no waste of time stabling pets and switching specs. With all the other Hunters looking for him too, it's best not to waste time taming Skoll if you come across him.
He's a decent looking Spirit Beast, although it is rather annoying that he has the CAT skills instead of the WOLF skills. Hopefully Blizzard adjusts that in a future patch. I'm not used to a wolf that can Prowl. Having Furious Howl would make more sense and possibly give BM Hunters a decent DPS boost to actually Raid as BM instead of the cookie-cutter Survival Builds everyone raids with.
I mean - what if they make the next Spirit Beast a Rhino? Are you gonna give a Rhino Prowl? LOL Kinda hard for a Rhino to be stealthed when they weigh like half a ton and shake the ground when they move. But I digress...
Anyway - I think you Hunters who are sub-level 80 should know that Skoll is a level 80 Spirit Beast. I saw a lot of level 78 and 79 Hunters camping his spawn locations - you guys can't tame a pet that isn't equal to or lower then your own level. So make sure you are level 80 first before you go looking for Skoll, otherwise you'll be stuck staring at Skoll and won't be able to do anything but kill him for the stupid Blue Dagger and some gold.
Good luck guys!
Tamed Skoll on Earthen Ring(US) at 3:03 PM server time, Thursday August 20th. He was located near the cave in Snowdrift Plains around 28,50.
Good Luck to my Hunter brethren that have yet to tame this awesome pet. It took me about a week of camping and searching to finally get him.
Tamed Skoll on Drak'Thul (EU) at 6:50 AM server time, Friday August 21th. He was located at 46,60. Good hunting hunters.
For the hunters that are interested in this awesome pet on Korgath server, he spawned at 12 am server time Aug 21th, Loc 28,51
Tamed on Mal'Ganis, 3:32pm server time, at the ledge right above Brunnhildar Village. He spawned right next to the little pad on the ledge.
Draenor, 21 Aug 09, 8:16 P.M. Server, 28 - 50 Coords near the Iron Dwarve Cave in the Snowdrift Plains.
I had been camping the spot just East of Bruinhildar because I knew that's where he had spawned three others times; twice he was tamed and one alliance hunter killed him while another was attempting to tame him at that spot.
I get antsy waiting in one spot so occasionally I orbit the other spawn points. About 8:15 I left Bruinhildar and headed West to the frozen lake in Bor's Breath, turned North from there, got about 50 to 30 yards from the cave in Snowdrift Plains when NPCScan went off. I had usually camped the spot in the Snowdrift plains because the other spots were always camped by someone else. Kind of happy that I tamed him where I camped him the most, even if it happened to be a lark that I found him there to tame.
After that I fired a Freezing Arrow which didn't trip, but I started the tame anyhow, he leaped at me, smacked me a couple times but never interupted the tame.
He shadow melds which I didn't know, had lots to feed him as I had been killing Rhinos or other mobs that patted near me.
I'll probably camp to try and help Shaulada if she hasn't tamed him yet as she was the person who was taming him when the other hunter killed him.
I have to argue this: I managed to catch Skoll, flew up in the air to continue on my way, just in time to bump into Vyragosa who was also flying over the snowfields. Therefore, Vyragosa and Skoll very definitely do not share spawnpoints. And as Vyragosa and Dirkee don't either, I don't expect that Skoll and Dirkee do.... although that's still up in the air.
I tamed him on Eredar (horde) this afternoon, about 3 hours after TLPD was killed. He was right south of the cave in the trees in Snowdrift plains. I have all 3 spirit beats now, along with the Worg from ramparts with the saddle on yet :)
Whatever you guys may hear from the schmucks in your server's SP general chat, do not think even for a second that Skoll shares a spawn timer with Vyra or TLPD. He.
Note: Does not show up in ANY tracking mode. To verify this I took my spirit Kitty Frisket out and went thru all the tracking cycles. Not once did he show up.

Tamed Skoll just a few moments ago :). ( Sat 22nd of August)
At 23:32pm on Eonar Server (EU). Right on one of the spawn points; the one with the circular pad in the ground, looking over Brunnhilder Village. I flew over and there he was :). Good thing no one else was camping at that time ^^.
When all the talents have been put on, he has the same stats as my Gondria spirit beast. So no loss there.
Threw down a frost trap and bobs your uncle.
I tamed this beast on the PvP ptr roughly a day after it went live on the ledge just above Valkyrion, where a Spirit Healer is found whilst dead.
Things to note - It requires the 51 talent skill in Beast Mastery, it's the 3rd Spirit Beast known in-game, and it can prowl.
Found him on my DK right above the Brunnhildar Village at 47,60. Instead of killing him I decided to look for a hunter that was interested in taming him (for free, I wanted to make a hunter happy). I jumped around kiting him "while we was tapped" with chains of ice making sure no one would steal him from me. Eventually I found a hunter that wanted to tame him, so I invited him to my group and told to lay down a trap, use distracting shot to get his attention and tame him while he's frozen. But, he didn't have Exotic pets talent, and I had no idea that you needed it to tame him. After multiple attempts at taming him without knowing that you needed exotic pet talent to tame him, we ended up killing him by accident. Meh, what a shame.
So, if you want a hunter to tame him, make sure he got BM as main spec or offspec.
Other notes: He's neutral, does not aggro you when nearby. He does not count toward Northern Exposure or Frostbitten achievements and he looks so damn cool.
New information... Skoll does
, I repeat
, share a spawn point with the other rares (at least one of them). I logged in to a rare mob alert, and tamed him this morning at 27,49. But while I was taming him, Silver Dragon gave me a hit on Vyragosa. So I finished taming him, and then killed her right after.
So skoll does NOT share the spawn with Vyragosa. And since Vyragosa
share a spawn with TLPD, I would assume that means Skoll doesn't share TLPD's spawn either.
*sry if off topc o.o* From wut i've read when my hunter is high enough to tame him i'm going to camp him at 46.65 i can't wait to get him! (downrate this if u want idc that much) glad he's not for the achievments then ppl r killing Skoll to give hunters a hard time i mean wut's up with a ton of ppl hating hunters sry off topic again it just always bothered me
Just tamed him on Duskwood server near the blue drakes and the village. awesome looking pet. when i found him i was screaming into vent lmao but sweet looking pet i hope to test him out soon.
Thanks for all your comments.
I'm still shaking, lol, having tamed him at approx 4:05pm server time on Barthilas, at Bor's Breath spawn site. SilverDragon picked him up no problems.
For all those who are trying to grab him, he's awesome, and definitely worth the wait. I'd also suggest that when you do tame him you send out a general chat message so that other hunters know not to bother camping him for the next few hours...
ah but here's a question: does it share a timer with the other spirit beasts? we do know that each beast shares timers (usually anyways) with other rare spawns in their zone, but do the spirit beasts also have a timer between themselves?
also, have spawn times always been on the top and/or bottom of the hour or can they be at any given time? I have only seen Logue once (when i found her and tamed her back around Christmas last December) and have yet to see the other two....
currently I AM going with a 10-12hour time based on a killed sighting of around 8pm yesterday (08/24/2009) by another hunter on the server looking for TLPD... server shut down and maintenance not withstanding if the timing is good he should in theory spawn on eredar server around 6 or 8pm or anytime in between....
update for my last post around 10:17pm as i was flying by gimorak's den near the disc spawn area for skoll, npcscan popped with his indicator but i could not find him anywhere.... :(
Just wanted to pop on here and let people on Gurubashi know I just tamed skoll about 10 -15 minutes (which would be abt 11:30 am server time) ago at the 27.7, 50.4 spawn point.
I was super excited, lol. I landed went to tame him just to be told I had too many pets so I had to quickly pick and abandon one of my other pets, then go through the tame process again, but I got him.
share timer with Loque'nahak!
I was just farming some saronites in sholazar, and there Loque was. I called my hunter friend and he tried to tame it.. but he forgot that he was surv and not BM. (Think you gotta be BM to tame Loque, else it was bugged)
One hour after that, I was farming TLPD in storm peaks, then I saw Skoll. my friend now respecced BM. But he still couldn't tame Skoll (That must have been a bug!)
While we tried to tame him, a god damn rogue named Suntwink, Server Frostwhisper, Alliance ganked us. Sucha imature boy.
Anyway, this was 1 hour after the spawn of Loque'nahak, so they DONT share timer.
(Sorry for a kinda bad english.)
PS. Time 14:15 GMT+1
PS 2. over the frozen lake.
PS 3. If you want to kill Suntwink, I would be gladly to help and kill him too.
