The only item he drops is hilarious:
Lacrima della Lealtà Cristallina
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
Isteria degli Antichi
not sure if that helped anything but still used it and then I used Deterrence. Had around 59k health and with the resistans her Ray attack just did around 7k dmg per sec. She had time to cast it two times but took just dmg for 5 sec so around 35k health lost. Was no big deal :P
Bye bye hope this info will help others and GL!
Need any thing? just ask :)
just watched some asshat kill him :-(
i told him not to and announced he was up in general. the guy asked me why he couldn't kill him and i told him that hunters spend days camping him and that he doesn't drop anything. he didn't listen. then to be a jerk he was like "25g! woot!" a few minutes later a hunter logged on in the same area, so i switched to my horde to share the sad news. at least that guy has an idea of when to check back.
even though i got my terrorpene a couple days ago, it frustrates me that the guy was such a jerk about killing him after i asked him nicely and tried to alert the hunters in the zone.
anyway, in case anyone from my server checks here for a spawn time:
12:50 am server time
southern spawn point
Phasing doesn't matter, he finally spawned for me but OF COURSE there's the opposite faction there to stun the crap out of me and take the kill. stupid alliance.
Flying by @ 10:30 PM yesterday and my NPC scan went off, but he was already dead. Came back the next day @ 10:30 and flew around for about 10 minutes. Didn't expect anything so I was about to hearth, then my NPC scan went off again. Seems like 24 hours, give or take 30 minutes, is the respawn time.
Just tamed this Turtle with lvl 82 Hunter....wanted to post just so people know you don't have to be a higher level.
I stumbled upon him and this is how I did it (as scary as it is):
4 people in zone...just one other Hunter (85) must not have been looking for him.
I was unprepared, I had to port back to Auction House to get Stamina food, Haste Potion (225), even a puny Stamina scroll (wasn't tanking chances) and then I zoned back and he was still there.
Previously without the bought buffs, he killed me 4 times
I ate the food, popped the scroll, drank the Haste potion, drank a Mighty Fortitude potion I had on me and Queued for a random Battle Ground.
Joined the BG after a 4 min wait...Yelled "Buffs"! once I got there. Got buffs, afk'd out of BG.
Clicked on the Turtle then...
I hit Deterrence, Life Blood (From Alchemy), and drank a potion of speed then hit Tame....Bam! got him for my 6yr olds toon.
Being better prepared on the chance encounter would have reduced the chance that someone else in the zone would tame, got lucky...good luck Hunters!
Okay, so here's my Terrorpene story.
Been camping him on and off for a number of days, but the first time I actually spotted him was yesterday morning (1/8/11) when he spawned in his northern most spawn point at 7:58 AM server time. Unfortunately for me, another hunter tamed him before I did, but grats to him on his pet. With a rough idea of when he should respawn, I set out to tame him on the next go around later that day, but I had no idea how long I'd actually end up sitting there before I saw him. I began camping for him just a couple minutes after 2 PM server, figuring that if he had a 6+ hour spawn timer this would be a good place to start. I expected to see him within a couple of hours, but I was far from correct in that assumption. I literally stayed there for 15 hours before I saw him again, when he finally respawned at 5:13 AM server time in his southern most spawn point. I'm 99% certain that I didn't miss him spawn prior to this during my 15 hour camping session or anything like that, as during this time span I was typically sitting in my chair flying from point to point in a loop that took me about 25 seconds to cover the furthest north or south spawn point and then return back to it. If I had to get up to go to the bathroom or grab a quick bite to eat, it was typically for a matter of seconds or maybe a couple of minutes at most, and I had my speakers blaring, parked at the center point, just in case of an NPCScan alert. This was a really pathetic day for me, but as I stayed there longer, I became more determined to not just give up and leave, with each hour passing expecting to see him in the coming hour.
My advice to anyone looking to get him is two-fold. First of all: remain patient, persistent, dedicated, and determined, and you too will have your own Terrorpene one day. It is important to know going into it, however, that if you plan to camp his spawn, you might likely be there for far longer than you anticipated. Provided that my data is accurate and a spawn didn't somehow sneak past me, and I really doubt that it did, he didn't spawn for me for upwards of 21 hours, whereas I hear others have seen him in a mere 6 or so. Either he has a very large variable range of a respawn timer, or there is some sort of population constriction or sharing with other rares, either Cataclysm rares or Kalimdor rares for that matter. Anyway, just be prepared! Also, if you haven't already prepared for the actual act of taming him, I advise you to do that as well. If you're 85, you'll probably be okay, but he'll still do quite a bit of damage to you with no buffs or consumables. It might be worth taking at the least a Prismatic Elixir and/or Drums of Forgotten Kings with you, as the combined resistance plus a little bit of Stamina from those two buffs hugely mitigates the damage you will take. Haste is always nice for faster taming as well, so feel free to bring a Potion of Speed or Elixir of Mighty Speed (or both!) if you're feeling extra insecure about taming him on you're first try, but if you are <85 or are just wanting to play it safe I'd suggest the two aforementioned resistance buffs as being the most important.
Sorry for the huge amount of text and long paragraphs, but I'm hoping this info will help people who are still on the hunt for this wonderful pet. Here's the TL;DR version of important information relative to his spawning activity as I witnessed it:
7:58 AM server time on January 8th, 2011, in his northern most spawn point.
5:13 AM server time on January 9th, 2011, in his southern most spawn point.
21 hours and 15 minutes
Starting at 2:17 PM server time on January 8, 2011, I camped for 14 hours and 56 minutes before seeing him spawn again, and the vast majority of the time I was flying between all 3 spawn points to ensure that I wouldn't miss a spawn.
My level and HP:
85 with 99.9k buffed, ended up with 78% health remaining after tame.
My buffs used:
Drums of Forgotten Kings
Potion of Speed
My abilities used:
prior to dismissing my Core Hound pet, followed by
right as I began casting
, although I'm not sure if the Deterrence even made a difference.
Being level 85, the extra buffs/abilities that I used were probably all overkill, but they definitely helped me play it safe. The single most important thing I'd suggest if trying to tame this, especially without any buffs, is that you engage him by casting Tame Beast and don't do anything else and just let the timer run the course and hopefully you'll have enough health to tank him for the duration of the channel. I'd suggest not standing in lava if you think it will be a close call, but definitely don't mess around by shooting him a couple times or attempting to CC him (which he's immune to), as you'll be taking 10k DPS from his fire beam this entire time. If you'd like to bring a buff or two without splurging, I'd suggest the Prismatic Elixir and the Drums of Ancient Kings, as the resistance from those hugely mitigates his damage and just about cuts it in half, with a small stamina boost from Kings on top of that.
Good luck all, hope this helps!
Bloodscalp restart this morning, camped for 9 hours (thank god its snowing outside).
But got the BAT !
Hydraxis, 9:00 PM Server, 01-09-11, 54:81.
The respawn timer doesn't seem to be specific.
I had it first killed right in front of me by some hunter, (if I can't have it, you can't either!)
Since then I waited the 9 hour like most claimed it to be, camped again from that point until next morning but to no avail.
Finally it spawned later that day, making it total of roughly 40 hours since its last spawn.
During this entire period, npcScan did not cache in any new data regarding Terrorpene, so it's safe to say that there were no spawn/tame/kill/despawn in between the 40 hours.
And boy he does hit for a ton.
Just killed him on a lvl 83 Paladin, got 75878 experiance (37939 rested).
So he's worth killing for the insane amount of experiance he gives and the 25g loot.
Im a ret paladin, silenecing him with Avenger's Shield and using Lay on Hands.
Tamed after 3 deaths at level 83 on greymane sunday the 9th at 7:08pm akamagosh the 10k damage is killer lol
Tamed on Garrosh this morning around 7:30 server time. I have just under 73k hp and got him just before I died. Didn't think I got him so I looked for him again, but didn't see him. Looked in my pet list and was relieved that I did actually get him. Now time to hunt Ghostcrawler.
I heard Saurfang farms that turtle for gold.
So he can watch goblins fight to the death for it.
Ofcourse in the end he gets bored and cleaves his way out of there
Was pretty dang hard to survive his onslaught. Survived with only 10% of my health left (( all thanks to me wife who healed me at the very last second :D ))
He spawned at exactly 05:03 Server time Wyrmrest Accord.
Cool lookin pet. Happy hunting guys!
well 3rd day almost down for my hunt of this sweet lookin guy...hopin for the post and spawn....
Tamed this beauty on Feathermoon at about 11:13pm server time. I've been camping for about 20 or so hours over the last few days.
I had been camping at the middle spawn point, doing other things irl to stay productive and poking the space bar every so often. Occasionally I'd go and fly across the other points, but most of my time was spent at the middle point. Tonight, I was just talking to some guildies and checking my email and whatnot, when suddenly I got a feeling that I should do a quick loop around. And what do you know? As I approached the southernmost spawn point, NPCscan honks at me and there he is below me, beginning his pat north. I flew down to a rock, hit him with concussive shot, popped deterrance, and began taming. This dude hits HARD, as most people here have said. Hit me for 10k a tick with his burning hatred, pretty impressive. I survived with about 25% health at level 85.
Just tamed this turtle on Drak'thul at 1:15 server time. I was lucky since two other hunters were sitting at the spawn point, I died, hearthed and came back and the other hunters were gone. So I retried taming and died, but got the turtle.
Level 81 Hunter, used a speed pot, prismatic elixir, and a scroll of fortitude.
Just tamed him now on Azuremyst-US at 11:40 server time. He was at the northmost spawn point. A word of warning, he does an attack called "Burning Hatred" that will zap you for at least 10K per tick every couple seconds while taming. Even at full health as a LVL 85 hunter he got me well below 50% during the tame. Come prepared to either try and trap him or with a health potion in hand.
Named him Bowser. LOL
So I camped Terrorpene Last night for 7 hours before i realized it was maintenance tuesday. After servers came up i went there and nothing i have been camping since then and nothing. How exactly does a maintenance affect a rare spawns timer?
Found him 6:28 server time on Aegwynn. Unfortunately I wasn't camping for him at the time and didn't have any potions or elixirs, so in desperation I asked for a guildy to come and heal while I tamed. While trying to get people a Dwarf hunter came up and tamed him in front of me, then immediately hearthed away.
Don't do what I did. At the very least; TRY the tame even if you don't know if you can do it.
logged on at 10:02am UKtime Quel'thalas as soon as the server went back up and didnt find him anywhere and i was the only person there. is it confirmed or rumor that maintenace spawns the rares?
Tamed him on mal'ganis at the southern part at 4:50am server.
Then went over to twilight highlands to do dailies and not even 10 mins later tamed Sambas. Its been a good morning so far.
im gonna say its rumor that the restarts/maint. spawns the rares...i was on 15 mins before restart and have been on since they went back live and nada =(
Just tamed this bad boy.
Time: 2:35pm Server time.
He appears to be on about a 10 hour spawn time. I talked with another hunter who had tamed him at around 7pm last night which meant he had spawned at about 5am this morning and was a right on time at 2:35pm. Btw I was lvl 81 with 33k hp used a Prismatic Elixir and a Potion of haste plus Ancient Hysteria from a core hound I picked up in Hyjal. I finished the tame with 10% hp left so it is possible.
Best of luck to all you Hydraxis hunters. :D
P.S. I caved and named him Bowser.
Had left my toon parked near spawn area and would occasionally log on and take a peek. Hadn't checked in a couple of days...but this afternoon I logged on...and there he was! Tamed 1/12 on Alterac Mountains server at 3:30PM server time. Spawned around 54,77. Good Luck!
It would seem that when he uses his Shell Shield, there is no animation for it. Unlike other turtles which cover themselves in the golden shell, Terrorpene simply gains the damage reduction with no visual effect. Kind of depressing, but still an amazing pet that always catches peoples attention.
tamed at 1:07am game time on quel'thalasEU server. he spawned right underneath me at the right hand side of the spire in the corner (facing away from spire) directly underneath the letter I on the world map at the edge of the lava.
i managed to find out from two other hunters who had tamed him on my server that he had spawned monday 8am then tues 3am. so just from these 3 tames his spawn timer looks to be around the 20 hours mark give or take.
lvl 83 BM hunter used ancient hysteria from core hound, elixir of mighty speed, prismatic elixIr, drums of forgotten kings, scroll of fortitude. popped rapid fire, hyperspeed accelerators (engineering, gloves) and ground plasma shield (engineering, belt) which absorbs 18k dmg.
took me about 3 secs to tame him with all this and took no dmg thanks to my belt shield.
engineering ftw! yr not a true hunter without using FD and jumper cables!
i think using all of the above was a little overkill now ive done it but hey ho i got him :D now to think of name that is still original XD
I just now successfully tamed this pet, and I hope this information helps someone. lvl 84 with 71k health, used a speed potion and a prismatic elixer concussive shot and finished the tame with 50% health.
ZulJin server, began camping at 4:30 am, EST until server reset at 8:15-8:30 am.. picked back up the camp as soon as server came back up, constantly flew over known path with npc scan. at 7:00pm he finally spawned. which was 14.5 hours total camp time and 10.5 hours after server reset. he spawned in the southern pathing strip almost directly across from where the quest dragon is killed on the cliff.
Just tamed him on Undermine Server. Level 83 Hunter with 57K health. Tried 4 times with a couple people healing me and the tame cast bar kept stopping, not sure why. So I loaded up on the elixirs mentioned a few posts above this one and tamed him first try. If you are not 85, I strongly recommend coming prepared with the elixirs and such.
The Secret to tame these kinda beast is as always you log in into the game go to the location, to make thing easier, before you log off go to the location of the pet, if it is there good if not, log off, when you log in again, maybe it will be there. I got Terrorpene, and Sambas, in 2 days this way. Nice hunting!
Lifeblood................. I hadn't thought of that.
The 5% health, reminds me of king krush. Didn't want to kill it, but didn't think I could tame it solo at 3am. Somehow I did. I'm just glad I wasn't conscious enough to realize how bad it was going during the tame.
****By omgitzrick 15 days ago (Patch 4.0.3)
Just solo tamed at 81, still in half crappy Northrend gear.
Disposable Core Hound, Lifeblood (herbalism) and a Potion of Speed. It was touch and go but the tame went through with me on about 5% health.****
Do you know what the last part of it's name means in spanish?
I have been camping him on Destromath for over 5 days now and i have only seen him one time and another hunter beat me to him. Does anyone know the respawn timer? ive heard 4-8 hrs and 10hrs and 24 hrs. I hope he spawns soon :/ my luck seems to be realllly bad
Just tamed him at 5:03pm ET on Nathrezim! Level 81 hunter with ~35k HP. I used the Drums of Forgotten Kings, Runescroll of Fortitude, Prismatic Elixir, Potion of Speed, and Deterrence (in that order). Still had around 20% of my HP left when I finished the tame. Most stressful tame I've done in a while! Worth every bit of effort! He looks awesome! As stated by others, it definitely pays to be prepared when you're looking to tame this guy, especially if you're level 83 or lower! Good luck and happy hunting!
I can't believe it! I logged in at 7:58 server time to just see if he was up. He wasn't. But at 8:00pm exactly he was! He spawned right on top of me and Burning Hatred crushed me before I could react. I flew back, rezzed, ate to full health, hit tame and 10 secs later, the turtle was in the stable!
Server: Kilrogg - US
Time: spawned and tamed 8:00pm server EXACTLY.
I just tamed Terropene at 8:55p.m. Medivh Server time this evening.
I also saw him tamed by someone else last night at 4:05pm Medivh Server time.
Based on that time frame, I would assume he has an 8 to 9 hour respawn rate, as others have suggested. (He probably spawned around 12am or 1am overnight also, which fits the time frame)
Nasty bugger - he'll range-attack you with a red laser-beam type breath weapon that does exactly 10K damage every 2 seconds, non-stop. The attack is called "BURNING HATRED" and it's all Fire Damage.
Never got a chance to Freeze Trap him because I dropped it at my feet and he never got in range to set it off. I have no idea if he's resistant or not - check the others who tamed him for that info.
I had 99.3K Health at level 85, so I survived the taming with about 20% Health left.
Also - check your NPC-SCAN. I cleared my cache right before logging in and I logged in right on top of him - NPC-SCAN did NOT alert me - I just saw the Red Dot on My radar and it was indeed Terrorpene, the hostile Rare Elite Level 82 Beast.
I have the latest version of NPC-SCAN and OVERLAY installed and for some reason Terrorpene did not sound an alarm for it. Luckily, I spawned almost right on top of him.
Also - he was walking around several feet OUTSIDE the green box that OVERLAY marked on my map, so check to make sure you zip around those green boxes on your patrol routes incase Terrorpene takes a little longer walk than marked on your map.
That's it. Thanks guys. Hope this helps.
Confirmed respawn time of around 10 hours. I just tamed it! At around 5:20 am at Andorhal.
First met him on 11pm Wednesday night, I and another hunter were both trying to tame him.
But both of us kept dying because neither of us had potions. But the other hunter successfully got him by calling his Shaman friend. I think Shaman has a "Fire Resistance" totem that can reduce fire damage. I was sooooo sad when he got him.
Anyways, I heard some people saying it has a respawn time of 10 hours. That means 9am and 7pm of the following day and 5 am the day after. I missed the 9 am and 7 pm. But when I logged on around 5am this morning, I thought why not gave it a try. Then there he is!
I am a lvl 83, 57k health, used a lesser flask of resistance, an elixir of mighty speed, and Deterrence.
By the way, it seems there are few seconds between his first wave of "Burning Hatred" and second one that he doesn't attack you at all. That perfectly gave me my last few seconds to finish taming. So if you survived his first wave, you are good to go.
If you have a pally friend, divine shield also can help. That's what I used for taming King Krush.
You first put on divine shield and then start taming.
Good luck guys!
Tamed him yesterday morning around 9am CST Stormrage server. After reading the posts on here i decided to ask a druid friend to mark me and HoT before the taming, worked great didnt even get close to dying. So if theres any druids in the area just toss them a message and maybe toss a tip at them.
Hello, I posted a comment further back, about losing Terrorpene :( But guess what? I was fishing for fires 2 days ago and BAM, who might I see in the lava, the sexy turtle ive been dreaming of since the mean troll stole him away, it was 21.40pm UK time and no other hunters around, i used my Ancient Hysteria and dismissed my corehoud( one from BWL, that i had just tamed with help of my pally friend, we soloed raid) and downed a battle exlier speed potion and started taming, very speedy tame and hes finally mine, 4 mins later and another hunter turned up, i guess it was just my time :) and a few mins later i won the Black Drake from OS3D 10 man, I guess i was just lucky :)
Map is perfect - he spawned on the eastern side and started heading north.
Non-elite, easy for a lvl 85 in heroic gear. Didn't need pots or anything.
Also notable: After taming, he is lvl 82 (not 81 as it says here!)
Just to confirm the spawn time is around 8-10 hours.
Today, I just came out of an instance and my npcscan just went off at around 2PM. Saw a hunter just taming/finish to tame it. He tamed it at the southern part where the lavafall is.
So I thought I would come back and try my luck later this day.
Came back to the spawn place, mined 1 mine and npcscan went off around 10PM. Before I found him I did made a spin around the spawn places, mined and npcscan triggered. It spawned at the northern part for me. I saw him walking in lava, so found a stone to dismount and tamed him. For me, he spawned at the northern part of the lavafall (that's where I found him).
So I guess he spawns randomly at any place.
I was the only hunter there at that time though soon afterwards another just came by (think i was lucky) told him that I just tamed it and he left.
Had no time to make SS as either you get it or others will.
Well good luck fellow hunters and don't give up but also don't waste too much time on it as I did .

I was dam lucky with this pet. I was first farming volatile fires around throne of the flame when I saw him walking though the lava on my shaman, and thought that be great for my hunter. I quickly switched to himm who was 5 bars of 81, who I quickly leveled him, came back trying to tame it, only to find he ticked for like 10k damage every second on my hunter.
A healer friend on his lv80 paly came and helped me, and after some deaths trying (since he needs to be agroed on me all though the tame in order for it to work) we did it.
Some things you must be aware of. He can not be iceblocked, he's immune, and like I say, his range beam attack does 10k a tick each second. It seems it can be reduced with resistance, so make use of your hunters aspect of the wild and any resist potions if you have any for this. And you need to keep agro on you at all times to finish the tame.
i wasn't planning on even LOOKING for cata rares for months. after a few turtle god quests in Hyjal, i was lovin Tortolla and commented that i should tame a turtle in his honor. i get a wild urge to check where his spawn points are, and i update my macro.
first trip over the lava, and he pops up. never found a rare i could tame so easy! (i always find them when i'm too low level!) i almost lost him because i couldn't see him, my hubby found him though, and i promptly died many, many times (82 bm with 45k life, he killed me in about three ticks of that laser). i called out in gchat for a healer, and, because my guild is awesome, in just a few minutes i had an 85 rogue, 85 dk and my husbands 85 lock patrolling overhead to make sure i wasn't disturbed (pvp server), and an 85 pally ready to heal. the pally had a heckuva time with lag, which resulted in quite a few death timers, two or three of them full 2 minute timers :P but the pally reset his modem during what would be the last 2 minute timer, and i tamed him with i'm pretty sure, full life after that, honestly, i kinda froze for a few seconds, with the pally still throwing constant heals on me....i couldn't believe that i already got a cata rare XD. tamed on detheroc roughly twenty minutes after being found around 6:20am server. i was so grateful to our healer that i named the turtle after him ♥
Tamed today @9am - Wildhammer EU.
I´m lvl 85 and tamed it without any issues, but he took 60k out my health, 6 ticks of 10k fire dmg.
/ Furblow - Wildhammer - EU
i tamed it at 11:30 am
Tamed at 2:25 am shadow council server. In one of the previous posts someone mentioned that it's a good idea to try to tame, even if you don't feel you're ready or have enough HP. Good idea.
I'm a new level 81 and have more than one account. One the other I have a druid that I knew I could use to heal, if that would work. I also have a friend with a druid that could help. But timing counts here too. This beast is not always there. Many people recommend using the prismatic elixir. I checked the AH and there were none. My hunter is an herbalist and my druid a alchemist.
I began to send the druid herbs to level her- maybe to make that elixir. I had my hunter in the area where terropene spawns and I had finally made and sent the prismatic elixir (to my hunter).
The turtle spawned. ( I've spent a good 2 days looking) NPC scan did not pick it up even tho I entered the number wowhead had for it.
I had a stam scroll, the prismatic pot and some potion of speed.
I clicked the scroll, then the elixir and then the pot of speed.
I was not frantic or excited with this pet because I didn't believe for a minute it would work. My druid was still in dalaran at the AH. Not to mention the very real possibility of other players who were 85, taming it much easier. I was quite sure this was just practice.
I watched my HP shoot down as I watched the tame bar finish.
I was amazed to see the tame bar finish first. I had maybe 15% life left.
As far as armor and what I had or did not have, my character is "Elsah" on shadow council. Check it and you'll see I have some new drops and what is left from wrath. I don't raid so my armor is AH and created.
I suppose it is possible to tame this guy at level 81 and 46 ish K health points. I would think the prismatic pot and the speed pot ( lasts 10-15 seconds orange one) did help.
No one is more surprised than I am. After reading many of the posts, I didn't think it could be tamed at 81, and even then, it seemed like a tough tame.
I am not sure if it spawned as I sat there, but it did show up with track beasts. It also seemed to first show in the south area, but then it seemed to warp to another spot near by, but would have been way out of taming range. I did think at that point someone had tamed it because I was taking a good 10-20 seconds to decided what to do and then how to do it. So if it seems to disappear , look again.
In the long run, (or short run) if you see it and want it, take a chance and try a tame. Especially if no one else is there, you might get lucky.
Although I would carry some pots such as haste and magi resist.
Be somewhat prepared. You just never know!
Tamed him at 55.3, 75.3
Found at 8:05pm on Illidan.
Only had to spend an hour looking for him all up. :D
Just tamed on Dragonblight at about 2:39 AM server time.
I'd been hovering on my flying mount about midway between his spawnpoints, checking back very so often since about 7:30 PM server, and doing an hourly flyabout. Figures when I go AFK to make myself a late dinner, I come back to him patting by right beneath me, northward from his southernmost spawn point
Like a lot of people I panicked and tried to tame right away without using any of the preparations I brought with me. Being only 82, that didn't work out so well. He was still there when I ran back to my body, though, so I took the time to pop my prismatic pot, eat some stam-boosting food, and get lifeblood, my speed potion, and deterrence hotkeyed.
Second time was close, but went much better with everything being used. Just in time too. About a minute after the tame finished, a dwarf hunter swooped down. If I'd died again, I would've missed out entirely. Now to think of a name :D
Advice for people still hunting who haven't seen him yet, he's really big and moves fairly slowly. VERY obvious mob. Don't worry about missing him if you're not right on top of his spawn points. Also, he stands at whatever point you aggroed him to hit you with his 10k-per-second beam, so make sure you're in a good position to tame (close enough for tame beast and preferably not in the lava) before tagging him. Good luck, everybody!
finaly tamed him :)
reading the comments above, my experience is:
first spawn: sunday 8.35am - killed by another player
Garr spawned 4.40pm sunday
2nd spawn: monday 0.25 am - killed by another player
so after this I comed back around 7 am and waited for him. 10.40 am Blazewind spawned, I killed it, and 12.40 pm, exactly 3 hours after Blazewind, Terrorpene spawned on the southern spawnpoint. (Ive read someone comment, that he spawned exactly 3 hours after other rarespawns, it worked for me too)
Good luck for everyone, who still want to tame him
I was lvl 85, didnt have any problem with the taming
Levadászlack - Arathor EU
Ps.: Its suprising, that no one have pointed out: during the waiting, you can fish up Volatile Fires from Pool of Fires. During the camp according to Fishingbuddy I fished up 521 Fires, in my servers AH I could sell them for 20g each - so its a nice profit, and you wont bored during camping :)
I'm putting up this
for the final time in hopes of
trivial experience/info. and it does not get purged for whatever humain reason.
A side note: The cool
it uses will be gone as soon as you tame it. It will only be a standard turtle with a unique skin.
Woot caught this guy at 7:40am realm time on Gundrak - spawned right under at that time. I didn't know he had a range attack and popped a freezing trap down lol, at 85 he got me at 50% health without using any special buffs/pots.
Just got him, Moghski, malfurion, 5:30 pm est time. 5.5 hrs camping SCRNSHOT:::
I just tamed him on Zul'jin at 11:57 am server time. Been camping this guy for several days. I used the prismatic exilir which reduced his 10k channeled damage to 5k-7k ticks. He spawned inbetween the north and south spawning points that someone had listed.
Server: The Venture Co. (United States)
Date: January 19th, 2011
Just tamed Terrorpene a few minutes ago -- I'd say it spawned around 8:45 AM Pacific, at the easternmost among the various points marked on the map here. (Sorry -- I was in a frenzy and couldn't pause to note the coordinates.) Tamed at about 8:52.
Having studied the comments here and elsewhere for two days of camping, I thought I, as a level 82 hunter with about 44K health, could manage it (barely). I had my Prismatic Elixir, some haste gear, a haste potion, and various HP buffs, Lifeblood; I used Deterrence and tamed from the maximum range...but could not quite tame the beast before dying. NEARLY, but not quite; very frustrating after several attempts. Luckily, a wonderfully helpful paladin took pity on me and healed me through it. I was almost hysterical with glee when I saw that monstrous turtle shrink before me and its nameplate turn green. :D
I feel like I could have been successful if I'd just had a few hundred more health, and if I hadn't been so tired and agitated from the wait and excitement. Whatever the case, it would have been close. Don't be overconfident like I was.
I can add nothing to the discussion about Terrorpene's spawn times, because it could very well have appeared and been tamed or slaughtered the two times I needed to stop for rest. All told, though, I camped the Throne for nearly two days and only saw this mob once. I am now a very tired but exhilarated and THANKFUL hunter!
(edited for grammar)
Tamed him at 7:15 server time (CST) after 15 minutes of camping - Place was crawling with hunter - no fewer than 6 - I almost hearthed twice but was waiting for a raid to form. Then there he was! Southern part of the NPC scan - but he spawned right in front of me. I landed on a rock and started taming. Then another Horde hunter (lvl 83) started in on him. I was lvl 85 and found it odd that the taming created a fire beam (his damage beam I'll assume). I was uncertain at that point what was going on so I then attempted to tame him again. We both died. I flew back and started again only to have it broke by the other hunter again. We both died after a bit. I then had to wait about 8 painful seconds to revive this time. I then started taming him again and for some reason got him really fast. At this time the other hunter was typing not so wonderful things in general chat about me stealing him. Turns out that the guy &*!@#ing was a new hunter that started taming him when we both died - I just thought it was the same ass that took it from me to begin with - but with everything going on and being I initially started taming 1st I don't feel a bit bad.
Wish I would have captured the whole mess to upload to youtube.......
Just tamed him! Found him at 54.3,81.1. I saw a hunter with him last night on moonrunner server. My hunter is horde, Kilrogg server. Since I had some time to kill (at work) :) I logged on at 2 PM server time and tamed him at 2:05. Sorry to all the hunters who have spent a ton of time looking for him. I spent 5 minutes! I only rub it in cause it took 1 month to get skoll:( I still have nightmares about that:( Any ways, good hunting! Almost forgot, he does 10,000 damage per tick. got me down to 50% health then bam! He was mine. Didn't use any buffs or pots.
Psykotic troll hunter Kilrogg server
after 5-6 hours of camping him i finally found him just as i was about to log.
roughly around 53,81
he spawned about 10:50 pm server time (Stormreaver)
be careful he does hit like a mother^&*!er
Tamed him on Korialstrasz server at 10am server. Took me down to about half health with no buffs on. He looks great! Been looking for 2 weeks, glad I finally got him. corrds were around 52, 82. Good luck to all.
First of all, let me say that the Thottbot and Wowhead comments have been such an incredible help for practically anything you might not be familiar with in the game. I've meant to make an account to add helpful comments for so long, and finally decided to stop putting it off. Terrorpene deserved better. :) (I'll have to go back and leave my gruelling story of the Loque'nahak camp as well.)
Basic info for the campers:
-Standard, 85 BE, MM/BM Hunter
-approximately 10 hours of camp time. (7pm - 5am server)
-Exact spawn time: 5:07am server, the morning of 1/20/11
-Previous known spawn time: 5:00am-ish the morning prior.
-Spawned, not caught patrolling, at 52.5 / 83.0 (for those of you with coordinates)
-with 97k hp, no buffs or avoidance cooldowns, taming completed with approximately 10-15% health left.
-I've seen a couple posts that said he did not trigger NPCscan. If it's after 1/20/11, and you have the latest version, it should. I know it did for me. Just make sure he's not already cache'd.
-remember, this is one of very few rare beasts with a unique skin that ISN'T exotic, so it doesn't matter what spec you're in.
-Overall loot from the camp: Terrorpene tamed (obviously), 22 Savage Leather, 20 Savage Leather Scraps, and 437 Volatile Fire.
BEAST LORE (tamed at 85, making these stats for him at 82 instead of his 81 level as an npc):
167 ARCANE resistance
Diet: Fish, Bread, Fungus, Fruit
Tamed Abilities: Bite, Shell Shield, Cower, Growl
It being in the turtle family, makes it a Tenacity pet, able to learn Taunt and Thunderstomp and such, and make a great tank pet. I haven't had the chance to compare him with Uhk'loc, but one's 82 and the other's 85, so I have yet to see.
I'd seen hunters come and go throughout the evening, which kept me on my guard considering his spawn region is so small. Keeping an eye on the area, and knowing that my NPCscan or macro I was spamming would scare the bajeezus out of me, I kept flying in small circles from the bottom of the outer crescent, to the northeast corner, then west towards the inner pool. I had never bothered leveling my fishing on my hunter, yet knew that Volatile Fire's were fishable where I'd be camping, so I decided to train my level 1 fishing skill, and purchase the wimpy rod from the vendor. Thankfully I did, and approximately every other complete circle, I passed over at least one respawned Pool of Flame, landed, and fished it up quickly, landing me a total of 437 Volatile Fire by the end of the camp. Since my hunter is also Skinning/Leatherworking, I took advantage of the people that were finishing the questline there, where they had to kill the one dragon. Skinning this after people had looted and flown away (respectfully leaving them the chance to skin their own kill), landed me the leather and scraps listed above. Not that it's anything major, but hey, anything to kill the time and be productive during a long camp, right? About a half hour before the end of the camp, a paladin came through every now and again to fish up a couple fires or mine a local node, and mentioned that she had caught Terrorpene around that very same time the previous day, and let me know that the center of his patrol path wasn't too far north of his spawn point, so unless I was flying in a circle collecting fires while she wasn't there, I hovered at that point. We spoke for a while, and I gave her my tips on Loque'nahak and Skoll, and minutes after she said she had to log for a short while, I'm fishing up more fires, and BAM! Lo and behold, who spawns right behind me? You guessed it. :) So, since i already had my pet dismissed (seeing as there's not really any fighting to do there), I quickly landed near him, hit Concussive Shot for a quick daze, and began taming. Range doesn't matter much, as his main ability as an npc is a ranged attack that ticks for approximately 10k per tick, and he can't be trapped, so the best you can do (if necessary), is pop your cooldowns and/or use a corehound's special before dismissing it, and tank it as best as you can. About 20 minutes later, the paladin came back online, noticed that I wasn't there any longer, and asked if I had caught him. Of course I was elated and told her I did, and with that spirit, she decided to go sit and wait for Skoll. The most common spawn point for Skoll is at the disc just north of Brunnhildar Village, on the edge of the cliff, and after about 5 minutes of her sitting there, he popped up and was hers! Incredibly enough, after all that, we both had our new pets and met up to talk in Org for a few minutes before we both decided to log for the night.
Good luck to everyone out there who wants him as a pet. I hope this post helps! :)
Just tamed him on Lightnings Blade at 4:37. I'm a lvl 85 with pretty good PvP gear and he barely got anything off i took maybe 20k damage, I was so happy when I saw him. I've been farming him for over a month showing up maybe once a day but i figured i would sit there, i entered a heroic and when i came out he was there. He is totally worth the wait, one of the best pets i've ever had. he has a 5, 8, 10, or 12 hour respawn timer. GL, You'll need it :P
Got him this morning at 630am ish server time. Spawned last night around 7pm ish too, but I stepped away from the comp and some stupid orc huntard got him.
Server: Frostwhisper EU
Time: 02:30 Server Time
Tamed as an 81 hunter. 31kHP with a Prismatic Elixir.
Had to log my second account and get my Priest to Hyjal quickly to bubble my Hunter before the tame, even with the elixir, the Burning Hatred was ticking for 5-6k, I kept dying about a second before the tame finished (Had no Potions of Speed available, only managed to acquire a Prismatic Elixir because I am an Alchemist and luckily had the skill and mats with me)
Even with a PW:S from an 81 Disc priest, I managed to tame with 3kHP left. Lucky.
Story time. Tried taming 2 times before I read about the Prismatic Elixir. Tried taming again with a still died. Had a 2minute res timer by then, was literally bricking myself just knowing someone would come along and kill/tame him whilst I was waiting to res and flying my Priest from Nordrassil. During my time as a ghost I saw an 85 Allie Lock land, ready up and start on Terrorpene. I thought to myself that was it, my chance was lost. But when I saw his health drop 10% after 1 Tick of Burning Hatred, and Terrorpene just wasn't taking any damage, a smile brightened my face. Several seconds later the Lock was dead, my res came up and my Priest arrived.
Healed, Buffed, Tamed, Smiled like a kiddy at christmas.
Just tamed him on Destromath at 12:32 pm. Camped the eastern-most spawn point and he was right there. Had no troubles at 85 with crappy blues.
Tamed him at 7:06am est on Eonar
Tamed him on Korialstrasz at 55,73 on 1/23 about 6am pst
I tamed this little fellow on Aman'Thul, exactly 12 hours after I watched another hunter tame him. I was 82 at the time. I first tamed a core hound for the ancient hysteria buff (abandon after you pop buff), drums, and elixir. I still had 25% health after tame with no isues. After taming my turtle my daughter decided she had to have one as well. He spawned for her exactly 14 hours (to the minute!) after I tamed mine, so spawn time seems to be very exact as far as the minutes go, just random hours. 12 & 14 hours confirmed here. On a side note, after my daughter and I tamed ours, my wife decided she wanted Terrorpene too. We had high hopes after 2 succesfull tamings in a row however, just before what should have been his spawn time, there was a server restart which completely seemed to have screwed up his timing. We waited 4 hours past when he should have spawned but no luck. So server shut down and restart definately messes with the spawn time. Good luck to all who are trying to tame him.
Edit: I must be VERY lucky from everything I am reading. Within a weeks time, I have tamed him 4 times for all of my and my wifes hunters, and my daughter has tamed him once for her hunter as well. Two of the tamings were pure luck, both found mid-morning just wandering on his route with not a soul in sight besides me. Spawntimes I can comfirm are 12 and 14 hours for the 3 I timed and activly camped. Hope this helps. Good Luck!
Terrorpene has been tamed! after 2 1/2days of camping
7:55 pm ST, Realm: Dethecus
spawn point: 54.9,76.8
at level 84 was no problem, popped a haste and resistance potion incase, only got me down to 50% health.
Tamed 07:00 ST Kor'gall
Ended up with about 70% hp left, np at all as lvl 85
Tamed @ 1:22 EST - Rexxar US
So i've had some bad luck with rares lately, but today that changed.
I head to Hyjal just to get some rep stuff and I decided to fly over his spawn place and have a look, Sure enough there he was on my minimap. :D
His channeled ability is a 3 sec long 10k per tick hit. I literally had 100~ hp near end of tame. Close call :)
Best of luck to the rest searching.
Tamed on Vashj-EU at 18:31 server time.
I'd afk-camped him while watching telly the other day with no show and was levelling my DK in Hyjal today when I thought I'd check to see if he was up, and bingo! Hurriedly hearthed my hunter, used my Lunar Festival invitation (score!) to get to Moonglade and flew to the Throne of Flame desperately hoping that no-one had killed him. Flew down next to him, hit Deterrence, popped
and tamed. Took me from 111.3k health to 42.2k (level 85, my SV heroics spec). Abandoned my Shattering model
that had replaced my previous
from Dustwallow Marsh since I won't need 2 turtles ;).
To hunters all around!I found today terrorperne after 1 day camping at the throne of flames!using the npsscan!he is amazing!just in front of sulfuron spire!He is doing a lot of damage!so b careful!I am 100k and he left me with 10000 health!find him and take him!GOOD LUCK!
Spawned at 2:10 am server time on Skywall, while I was circling overhead. Saw him at 54.0 x 78 walking right through the lava, I always expected him to be on islands, but not so. I landed on nearest island to the right of him.
Popped deterrence before tame, I'd say I was at 35-40%health at end of tame starting at 103K. His laser beam actually ended and he started to close the distance to melee.
Good luck !
Spawned at 11:04pm server time on Undermine. NPCScan did NOT pick it up, however, it did go off at 9:15pm server time, apparently there was a critter sized turtle that set it off, but I don't know. I was afk camping when I saw him walk in front of me. I'm a level 85 hunter, just geared enough for heroics, and he took my health down pretty low. I had to use Gift of Naaru to help, because he does do a lot of damage. I don't have carbonite, so I don't know the exact coordinates, but he spawned next to the little 'cubby hole' looking area (the eastern most spawn area) in the lava.
Good luck and happy hunting!
Ugh, I realize that nobody cares, but it's been one hell of an awful day, and this was the perfect ending. I've had my hunter parked in the lava pit on the lookout for this pet for nearly the entire time since Cataclysm came out. I just like the way it looks. I've been up late dealing with some really depressing stuff today, and logged in (to Steamwheedle Cartel) before going to bed just to see... And there he was! I was flying over, so I immediately landed and started to tame... But in my haste I'd landed in the lava. Between that and his attack I was killed (I was so, so close...). Fortunately the graveyard is close to where I saw him, so I immediately came back and rezzed to try again. But a shaman(? not positive) named Androis (Tuskin Raiders guild) is now attacking him. I asked him several times to stop, thinking at first he was trying to distract the turtle until I was ready (he had seen me make my comically disastrous first attempt, so he knew what I was doing). He won't stop, but Terrorpene (what a name) is slowly killing him, so I keep trying to tame. And then another hunter, Namisa, shows up and is trying to tame. I continued to make my attempts, only to have her decide to just kill the turtle and leave. I am so frustrated. I just wanted to lay it out there for people that might understand why I'm upset about an imaginary turtle in a game.
Tamed on Gilneas-US @ 20:00 ST on 1/25
Have been trying for Terrorpene for the last week and he finally spawned at the southern most point of his route near where the "kill the dragon" quest takes place. He is huge so there is no chance that you will miss him. He killed me twice as I was trying different strategies which included tagging him first with a ranged attack and using various potions and spells. My advice is to just land on a rock close to him and
start your tame before he starts his laser attack
. Only used a Flask of Steelskin and was at half health when the tame was done. (I'm level 84 with 75k health.)
Tamed on Earthern Ring- US @ 9:45 A.M.
Logged in to see if Garr spawned so I could get a group but nope. Went over to pick a cinderbloom where I usually camp him and no sign of him. Went over the the other spawn point and saw a giant turtle. I al;most screamed. Within 15 seconds of my seeing him he was mine!
Some small facts
-Ice trap does not work
-does about 10k damage
Happy hunting :D
Tamed at level 81 with 35k health, Prismatic Elixir for resistance.
Popped Ancient Hysteria, dismissed Core Hound, Popped Potion of Speed, And tamed.
3 deaths before this, 1 shot with it.
If you need a corehound for Ancient Hysteria, they are very nearby.
Just tamed him on Firetree @ about 11:45 am server.
Just flew over to his spawn area and saw him there, dropped down and dismissed Skoll, started taming and got him. Still had about 25% of my HP left when I was done. Cool looking pet.
Good luck everyone.
Exactly how often does this spawn?
Has anyone tried freeze trapping Terrorpene?
Caught on Kel'Thuzad at 8:08 PM server time.
Incroyable, sur Suramar,serveur, je l'ai eu le 26/01/2011 à 23h00, donc 4heures de france le 27/01/2011 !
je suis mort en le domptant, mais j'ai eu sa peau juste avt de mourir ! Youpiii !
le hasard faisant !
First time I saw this npc I couldnt believe it.
Thats because in my language, "pene" indicates the male's reproductive organ.
That is not amusing.
Tamed this AM, 6:10 AM server time, Kargath realm.
Camped her for 4-6 hours every day, for about a week and a half. Saw her in the process of being killed by a horde rogue on 1-22 at about 2:45 server time, then missed the spawn by about 1 minute, and the oppurtunity to tame to a orc hunter later that evening about 9 PM server time
Some information on spawn timers: I saw her corpse at 6 PM server time on 1-26, right on the bottom left part of the fire pool on the map, near the fire waterfall. Waited until about 1 AM, and no spawn. Got up early this AM, watched her spawn exactly at 6:09 server time at the same spot I saw her body yesterday. I have read spawn timers ranging from 8-12 hours, but assuming she did not spawn any other time since I saw her the previous evening, her spawn timer was around roughly 13 hours. I camped a solid 12 hours over the weekend and never saw her once, which may confirm the rumer that a longer, up to 21 hour spawn timer may be accurate.
NPC scan DOES pick her up and she does show up as a red dot on the minimap, but does not aggro when your in close range, unless you attack her first.
Word of warning, she hits HARD. I have close to 98k health, and she burned me down in seconds on my first tame attempt. I only used deterrence prior to taming. Luckily, the graveyard was close by, and I was able to run back, and heal myself enough to attempt 1 more tame. I saw several horde hunters swooping in, so I ran after her in the lava and less than half health, and started taming. I got her with 10 health left on my meter, barely. The second time I used no special technique, just hit tame.
Pretty girl, and so glad to have finally found her. I searched for her longer than any of my other rares.
I named her Cinder.
Best of luck to all who tame her. She is beautiful.
The spawn time of this creature
certainly can be more than 12h
. I've been camping today since 9 AM (when it was tamed - I just logged on) and haven't seen it yet (now it's 9 PM). NPC Scan went off about an hour ago, but it was Blazewing.
For me this is the hardest experience of searching for a pet. I'm not going to give up but honestly starting to despair of success.
Finally tamed her at 12.35 AM after 15.5h of solid camping. She spawned on the southern spot just in front of me and killed my poor hunter))) But I quickly ran again and tamed her without any problem.
OMG, I can sleep now!)))
Good luck to all of you!
The pet looks really awesome, so keep trying!
Same situation. Almost 13h of solid camping. Nothing.
I guess I got lucky, as NPCScan picked him up as I was taking my magical dragon ride into Hyjal for the first time. Of course, there's no way to interrupt that, so I was taken all the way to the first questing hub and had to fly back. Fortunately, no-one else was about, and he was just wandering around in the lava minding his own business.
Forgot all about preparation in my haste to get the tame done, and ended up dying simultaneously with the end of the tame. Fortunately, the tame must have finished a fraction of a second before I snuffed it, as he was in my arsenal when I checked. I think this is probably my favourite rare pet so far... the skin is magnificently detailed.
Tamed at 1:28 PM server time on Dentarg US!
He's such a beautiful pet and is well worth the wait~
Just tamed him at roughly 12:45am as a level 81. Had Drum of Forgotten Kings, Prismatic Elixir, Ancient Hysteria, and Haste Potion. Took only 4k ticks and ended up with around 21k health left out of 42k.
Was a breeze with all the buffs I had but was scared due to multiple level 85 Hunters around me of the opposite faction.
(Blackrock) Started camping yesterday, camped about 8 hrs. While camping, decided to lvl fishing. Left to go learn the next lvl of fishing in Org, came back, he was dead 10:25pm server time.
After reading posts, started camping again the next morning 12 hours after last spawn time. Waited a couple hours, spawn'd and tamed at 12:42pm server time.
Spawn time was about 14 1/2 hrs. South spawn spot. Looks like it spawns south and walks north in the lava.
Sambas here I come!
Jadenar server 745pm server time
Tamed him around 53,74. He was walking in the middle of the lava so i fond a spot near him where i could tame him. No need for potions or anything. My health is 106k and he did 53k damage to me before he was mine. He is awesome looking turtle!
Level 84 Survival hunter here. I got him just a little while ago at 1:42 a.m. ST on Nordrassil server.
I actually got caught unprepared on this one. My initial sighting was at about 1:36. I was fishing up Volatile Fire in the area, when I turned my camera to scan for more pools, and there he was, ambling along in the lava near the giants.
After being a little miffed that NPCScan hadn't made so much as a peep to alert me, I nearly panicked at first because I knew I might need Prismatic Elixir & Potion of Speed to make the tame easier, and I had neither in my bags. So I quickly hearthed to Orgrimmar, hit up the AH for what I needed, then ported back to Hyjal. Luckily, the little guy was still there. I tracked him to about 55, 77, set up on a rock, popped the elixir and the potion, then went to work on the tame. I have 79k HP, and he only got me down to about 55k by the time the tame was finished, but I was still nervous as hell since there were a couple of Ally players watching. Fortunately, they weren't in the mood to ruin my night and let me get through the tame. I /saluted both of them, lol.
Anyway, I pretty much got stupid lucky on this one, especially since I wasn't even looking for him. But good luck to those still trying to nab him! He's such an awesome-looking pet, and is completely worth the effort.
Maybe I will make someone angry, but I just caught it. From realising "I can´t live without it" thru "Lets look it up on WowHead" to "*catch!* MIIIIIIIINE!" it took me ONE HOUR THIRTY minutes.
I swithed on Track beast, wrote macro /target Terrorpene and fly and fly and fly around.
- It spawned on the southern point
- I was lvl 85 and didn´t use anything special, just tame a beast.
Good luck hunters!
Camped on and off for about a week. If anyone is camping this, I recommend you farm Volatile Fires in the meantime. They are selling extremely well on my server (Tortheldrin).
Also, if you fools name him anything other than Gamera, you're foolish.
I tamed this guy at around 5:35PM/17:35 server time on Wyrmrest Accord. Of course, I couldn't do it in the first few seconds because I forgot I had another pet out, but after dismissing him, feigning death to start over, healing up, and weathering his damage, I got him!
Just though to share my good experience with everyone here, and also give a little time data to those on my server. Good luck for the rest of you!
Fun fact (also posted on the page of the following mob; just though I'd share here, too) : Around 14/15 minutes before getting Terrorpene, I also snagged up Sambas. No joke.
Well thnks to all for the info finaly tame him at 3:35a.m -6 UTC 31/01/2011
Some curious things. when i tame "Terrorpene"... i went to zul'drak and "Gondria" was there.. so i tame her too.. then fly to storm peaks and find "Vyragosa" and more curious..when i came back to ogrimar the _NPCScan pop up "Blazewing" so i went to mont hyjal and kill him ...
Conclusion if iu are looking for tamin a couple of exotic beast when iu find one its more probable to find another one.
spawned right befor my eyes 12:39:07 PM. Server: Sylvanas EU.
The same sec i tamed him i died.
Tamed 12:39:07 EU sylvanas
He spawned right infront of my eyes as i was tabbing between wow and school work in school.
I poped anchient hystaria + dismiss pet+ my potion of speed+speed elixir and because i was so rushed i pressed my prismatic elixir long befor the GC was off. so i started tame him with deterence up and 58k health with only
Elixir of mighty speed
Potion of speed
since i didn't have the prismatic elixir up i was doomed to die, That sayd the same sec i died he was also tamed cuz when i died he disappeared right in front of my corpse.
With my whole body shaking and my class m8 laughing their ass of at me i corpse runned fast as hell back to my corpse, ressed and checked call pet, and there was a picture of a turtle and a used slot that was free befor. Call pet and a fire turtle came out with the name "turtle" =p.
Happy hunt to all of you going for this guy, and remember to actully use your prismatic elixir!
I just found him and witnessed an alliance druid kill him.
Why do people do this. Ugh.
Was finally able to tame this beauty :) Level 83 Night Elf Hunter (in a mix of Cata blues/greens).
I had periodically checked over the last four days around the clock 3, 6, 9, 12 etc.. with out any luck of seeing him spawn.
9:26 ST Nathrezim (US) server is when I finally tamed him.
He wasn't there when I logged off at 8:30, but I checked back at 9:20 and he was, which I'm assuming he spawned either at 9 or 9:15, and I'm guessing the latter of the two.
From what I read on Wowhead, I enlisted in a paladin friend for some pocket heals and fire aura. I previously had attempted to swoop down and tame him real quick out of sheer desperation but found out he hit just too hard.
Without Fire Resistance Aura:
"You suffer 10,000 Fire Damage from Terrorpene's Burning Hatred."
"You suffer 10,000 Fire Damage from Terrorpene's Burning Hatred."
"You suffer 10,000 Fire Damage from Terrorpene's Burning Hatred."
"You suffer 10,000 Fire Damage from Terrorpene's Burning Hatred."
"You suffer 10,000 Fire Damage from Terrorpene's Burning Hatred."
With Fire Resistance Aura:
"You suffer 2000 Fire Damage From Terrorpene's Burning Hatred. (8000 Resisted)"
"You suffer 5000 Fire Damage From Terrorpene's Burning Hatred. (5000 Resisted)"
"You suffer 4000 Fire Damage From Terrorpene's Burning Hatred. (6000 Resisted)"
He was patrolling from back and forth on the east side of the Sulfuron Spire as they say he should -- from 12 O'clock to 6 and back again.
Pet Stats at level 81 (when tamed) and spec'd into the basic tenacity tank build: (if this helps)
3213 Attack Power
81 Resistance to Every Tree
Diet: Fish, Bread, Fungus, Fruit.
I truly am one lucky SOB... Dinged 85 about an hour ago and happened to be flying around in this area picking herbs and suddenly my NPCScanner went off... Bout gave me a heart attack... The truely amazing part.. was that not even 30 min before (actually within 5 min of hitting 85) I was zooming around Ghostcrawler's domain and found him... I just wish I had "happened" to find some of the wrath rares like this LOL.
I must warn you though bout the burning hatred damage he does to you. If not prepared... it will kill you. Found him at 54,76 swimming around in some lava. he is quite huge... so even if you DONT have the NPC Scanner you will see him.
Terokkar server. Spawned all the way to the south for me 52,94 81,65. Instantly identified with npcscan the moment it spawned.
Respawned approx 14 hours after previous tame.
Tamed using Mark of the wild + prismatic elixir + lifeblood on a level 84 hunter with 80K health (202 fire resistance). Damage taken between 3-5K per tick.
Spawned & tamed 18:10 on Azuremyst 54.7 80.8 no buffs, 327 avg gear, ate up 65k health during tame. worth the 2 day camp I think.
After camping him for a while and using my spare time to pick flowers, he spawned for me today at around 1:50am Dunemaul server. Terrorpene spawned around 54,81 and started walking north. I tried taming him alone but as a lvl 84 and taking 10k damage during his channeling i found myself dying before completing.
Called over vt on my boyfriend to come and heal me as he was around, and then tamed him a few minutes later around 53.74. I was extremely happy over getting this lazor turtle of doom, and after standing around only a minute, an level 85 horde hunter swoops down, take a good look at my new buddy, /cry at us and flies away.
In that moment even though i had camped him, i felt very lucky.
Got him today at level 81. Used just a prismatic elixer and a haste potion. Had 715 haste rating already and a 36.5k health. One shot. Sweated a little.
Oh, and I killed an 85 alliance hunter who must have fell asleep while I was waiting. :P :P
Got this wonderful guy on Icecrown as an 83 Blood Elf Hunter (Racqelle) in the crafted Tsunami set and some quest blues.
Started camping this guy yesterday at 7:00AM and finally tamed him at his southern spawn point, right across from where you kill
Morte alla Madre della Stirpe!
quest, at 5:08PM when he popped up on NPCscan. The 10 hour camp is by far the longest I've ever waited at one time for a pet (Blazewing spawned during the wait as well). Dont think I could have done it if I wasnt preoccupied with working from home due to the weather. I had several hunters swing by over that time but none stayed longer than 10 - 15 minutes so I didnt have alot of competition.
The only hiccup during the camp session was a lame 85 Worgen Hunter who was fishing the lava pools and when he saw me hovering he pulled out his tamed Terrorpene, which set off my NPCscan alarm. Had me a minor heart-attack when I didnt see him until I saw the emote of him laughing. I waited til he left then relogged to clear my cache.
When Terrorpene spawned I took the wonderful advice from the comments here and dropped from the sky...hitting the Ancient Hysteria on my core hound, dismissed him, chugged a Prismatic Elixir, a Potion of Speed, then started the tame. I had him 6 seconds later after only taking ~24k damage from his attack (between 4k - 5k a tick, resisting the rest).
I had about 60k health with 90 fire resist (after drinking the Prismatic Elixir) so my paranoia about how hard this would be was all for naught. You can easily tame him with the steps I listed with minimal damage. I didnt even use Deterrence which could possibly have kept me from taking any damage at all. Granted I was two levels higher than him so it may be a bit more dicey if you are 81 or 82.
Good luck to everyone trying for this amazing looking turtle, he is definitely worth the effort!
Named mine Scorch. :o)
Finally tamed @ 1250 Dunemaul server time. After 3 days of camping, fishing.. I can rest easy now.
Today I thought to just go crazy and strip my gear, sacrifice my Perky Pug as offering and lay on a bed of flowers(Path of Cenarious). Just as I was taking screenshots, DING! I rushed and used Mighty Speed elixir instead of Prismatic and died almost instantly. I was so afraid someone else would get the tame on him before I got back to corpse since this place is infested with other hunters. This time I took it a little slower and was fairly quiet with no one around. Took Prismatic elixir and said why not and casted Gift of Naaru as well.
Finally got him at about 1030pm on garrosh server. Ive been checking out the area in between tb runs and dalies and never had any luck. I had been there just a little while ago and had to go back to orgrimmar to empty my bags and figured I'd head back so that I could check in the morning and see if he was up. I was just flying around in a circle getting ready to land when npc scan went off and scared the crap out of me. Tamed him no problem after fumbling around my keyboard. I was surprised I got him as the area is usually crawling with 2 or 3 hunters circling the area. Now on to karoma and sambas I guess.
Just tamed him again :P
Anyone have a great name for my turtle? (not firewall, torkoal and koopa)
You do realize that you have Aspect of the Wild, right?
yea he was a huge turtle when he finaly came up but.. there was a full out war on this guy of horde and allys soo mhm was hard a troll hunter got him he didnt have to follow me after that and try to shoot me out of the sky if u see this troll hunter i hope u die by that pet
My fiancé logged on to Lightbringer EU yesterday at approx. 3pm to see if he had spawned (I always log out in that area, just in case!) and there was another Ally hunter already waiting. He whispered my fella and said that not 5 minutes before, another Alliance, hunter none the less, had swooped down and killed Terrorpene before he had a chance to tame! I spoke to the same guy later on and he was so angry that the other hunter had killed him, I just don't understand! Please don't kill this guy (or any rare beast for that matter) if you see him, even if you already have him/there are no hunters waiting, he drops nothing of worth and it just means we all have to wait longer to tame! :(
one question...why are people naming him "Bowser" lol
I tamed him today at 4:02 central time in the Akama server!
I was camping for about 2 days and got on at 3 just to check, thought Id stay a bit longer
to look. Another hunter came a long and decided to leave like 10minutes before he re spawned
sux for him but awesome for moi XD
Tamed him yesterday at Chamber of Aspects EU.
05:04 am. The Prismatic Elixir was not in stock on AH. I died a few times so tougth that i would try something different. Used a flask of steelskin for 300 stamina and a Potion of speed (500) haste.
Died the same time that the taming was complete :).
Was level 82 btw with 52 k health.
Alright i have been camping this beast for four days now after a fellow guild hunter gave up his chance at Karoma so i could tame it cus i was obsessed with her. i told him as he wanted TP id find it for him. three days i camped leaving my toon online with the sound on as a slept it didnt spawn during any of these times. sometime during the second day my fellow guild hunter located TP and attempted to catch the beast and it to kill him, it was stolen by another hunter. im ashamed to say was also a member of my guild (needless to say we are very angry at him)
while on my Priest the beast spawned on the third day. i only knew this for my fellow guild hunter saw another horde hunter catch it the time was aprox 11:00pm realm time. i fell asleep tired and logged on around 2pm the next day to an email saying my guild member had finaly caught him in the morning though he never said a time. i decided enough was enough and this beast would be mine.
i started my camp at 2:00pm realm time 04/02/11 after an hour my husband logged onto his pally after i confessed my concerns of a horde killing me and the turtle for there were sure a ton around he said he's stun anything that tried or heal me if the beast did too much damage. a couple hours later with him and me stationed at the west and south parts of the lava pool another enemy hunter joined the fray with a couple friends (a priest and druid) this hunter i had seen many times in the past few days. i fretted about them the entire time they were there, leaving only a couple hours later. through out the camp many hunters i had seen many times before appeared and left. my husband and i camped for 15 and a half straight hours. (around 3:00am my guild master decided to join out of sheer boredom and the three of us including two other guildies had a little war with horde around 4am) aroud 5am i was getting tired but after camping for so long i fully refused to leave untill TP spawned. and he did indeed at exactly 5:34am he spawned the southern end nearly under me. i jumped down and being 85 i still popped my haste and resistance pots, my lifeblood and my gift of naaru (i think i went a little overbored but wasnt taking chances) watching him barely peal my life away was quite satisfying and he is now my nameless pet
i feel like im giving an award speech (though i should after 15hrs this is by FAR the worst iv had with a rare with loque, arcturis, Skoll, Sambas and Karoma in my collection)
Goodluck the rest of you included that horde hunter who decided to appear seconds after i caught TP and didnt kill me in revenge
and though its off topic thank you to my Husband who camped that long to have me sqeal in delight
Update today on 02/10/11 at aprox 5:44am realm time i was farming mats for my hunter when i decided boredly il check TP spawn again and found him (was kinda shocked after such a long wait to locate him the first time he's just walking around here without a hunter in sight) he was at the northwest spawn point just walking around. i quickly called my husband who was sleeping and wanted TP however he was too tired to get up and tame it. mently smacking myself for not having wireless at my house and the fact that his account uses the athenticator so i had no way of getting onto his account even knowing the info. i moved onto my guild only one other person online a fellow hunter.i quickly started yelling in guild and he is now a proud owner of TP as well.. now to find one for my Hubby ^^ dont known if this is a pattern but 5:30am works :)
2 hours after the release of cata i hit this bad boy with a beast lore and it said untamable. this makes me angry. at that time there was no crowd of hunters camping the spot, everyone was fighting for quests. would have been easy peasy.
Saw a lot of posts on here discussing: Using Ancient Hysteria, potions, flasks, etc.
I just wanted to add one more idea....
Just tame him....if you are lvl 85, just tame the turtle.... Took me down to 40% no buffs.
Just trying to clarify. You don't have to be a toughguy to get this pet. Don't polevault mouse turds.
Also, even though it is posted here, since I get asked all the time: No, you don't have to be BM to have it.
this is the luckiest i've ever been taming wise...
i guess this makes up for all the time working on camping broken tooth(he took days and days..), skoll (he took days and days) and other rare pets..
i flew to Hyjal, looked around sulfaron spire for a few minutes, then decided to go read up on him on wowhead more.. started reading looked at his spawn points started flying around again and landed at 54x73, and saw him walking around right in front of me. i nearly had a heart attack, figured someone else had to be near so i jumped into action , dismissed my pet, and figured im level 85 i can withstand the lava so started taming right then and there, he got me to like 10% health so i Fd''d aggro, eat food to heal, looking all around figuring someone would get him, turned into a dragon, found him again, moved to a safe location on a ledge at 51x83 started casting tame and my heart was pounding so hard, i figured something would happen to prevent this... i couldn't believe id actually get him after less than a few minutes of camping...he does hit you with some kind of fire dmg for like 10k (not sure if its per tick or not), he got me down to about 40% health so when i was more prepared and not standing in lava it was easy @85
at 12:33am server time, he was mine! (suramar server)
I am a survival hunter so he is not exotic you do NOT need to be BM spec'd to tame him
Good Karma for once from WoW, thanks bliz ! haha
What luck! Great time for fishing up volatile fires since I happened to stumble upon him around 2am on Ner'zhul. Was patrolling around the outer eastern side of the lava pools. Tried trapping but failed miserably since he is immune. Died. Released. Ran back. Had to abandon one of my other pets since I was caught off guard. Second attempt I just started taming with no buffs or pots. Worked out fine since I had pvp gear on and my hp was around 117k. Named him 'MutantNinja'. Good luck to all that want this epic pet! :]
Tamed 4:50pm 2/5/11 on Scarlet Crusade (US). Level 85 hunter, didn't need any elixirs or pot's, although as mentioned above he did do a good chunk of damage (around 50K total for me) before taming finished. As mentioned, he's just a turtle by family, you don't have to be beastmaster to tame him.
PS -- named him "Gamera"
Terrorpene tamed at 01:06 on 06-02 coords (52.82)
Sambas tamed at 01:13 on 04-02 coords (38.8)
Ghostcrawler tamed at 14:10 on 27-01 coords (23.62)
camping 20 min
Jadefang tamed at 13:38 on 24-01
Horde EU-Grim Batol
WOOT! Finally got him. I was level 83 on the Medivh server. I started camping him at 9:45am server time and stayed there non-stop for 7 hours, then I had to log off and just checked intermittently for a few hours. Then at 9:45pm server time, I popped back in game and there it was... with an orc trying to tame it! >< I was SO nervous that I screwed up and died twice, but so did the orc. I hearthed, bought potions, portal/flew back. BE paladin had arrived to heal orc.... two secs too late because he was dead again. So I was able to tame him! I used potion of speed, elixir of lightning speed, ancient hysteria from corehound, then dismissed him and tamed terrorpene.
So SO happy!
Oh thank the high heavens! Level 82, 3:50 AM, tamed it on my first try with Prismatic Elixir and Ancient Hysteria. Had forgot to pop Deterrence but survived easily with 50K health. I'm very grateful that not only are there Core Hounds in Mount Hyjal but also that it only took me one day of camping for 4 hours to get this awesome pet. Saw at least 4 other Hunters in the area with 1 of them being around for several hours but luckily they left awhile before The Great Terror spawned.
Realm seemingly crashed a couple minutes after I tamed him. Got disconnected, logged back in and Stormrage and a bunch of other realms were greyed out. Was able to l
