Anyone know where this mob spawns?
I think we need to wait for
to be able to start looking for
I actually tried go far into the zone and it was not pleasant so don't try that yet.
EDIT: see info below.
I killed the elite mob
today on 02.12.2020 inside the maw.
Yes, it was simply an elite and not a silver dragon rare.
Health: 559k Elite
/way 53,5 79,5
It was part of an event where you first have to kill 6 packs of mobs. Each pack had two Shadehounds and one elite caster mob.
First the boss was not attackable but after the 6 packs death he ran into a cave and was attackable. At 52% HP he jumped one floor deeper into the cave and you could follow him down with a chain.
Inside the cave there are stones on the floor
that you can pick up and use. They summon a crystal that gives a +20% dmg taken debuff to the dog and -20% for the players around him.
Best of all, the mob does not regenerate its HP when you die! So I could kill him alone as a hunter, even with the red eye of the Jailer.
The dog is part of this achievement:
I guess the events rotate daily and the mob is probably not always there.
AND it did not drop the mount
I have now killed the mob 3 times with the same char.
How do you ask? Well, I went into the maw again yesterday (02.12.20) to see what is in the area above the Beastwarrens zone, more about that later.
But then I saw that the hunt event was available for me again. So I killed the boss again.
This time there was only grey vendor trash as loot.
This morning after the EU reset the event was again available for me, probably because of the hotfix from Blizzard.
So I killed the boss for the third time and this time the loot was white cooking ingredients and grey vendor trash.
The zone above the Beastwarrens zone is called "Desmotaeron" and the only thing I found there was DEATH.
When I entered the zone I was not very attentive when I noticed it I was already dead.
There is a debuff called, I only have the german name and I couldn't find it at wowhead, "Grabeskälte".
The toooltip says every 2sec you get 5603 frost damage, but in reality it was only 5400dmg.
I have seen one elite mob that looked like the typical maw caster mob but it was lvl61 and had 1278k HP...
Seems like they disabled the event to prevent people from getting the mount prematurely. I spent half an hour next to it, the mobs are unattackable and there is nothing you can do or click to trigger it, as far as I could tell.
Typical case of FUN DETECTED by blizzard.
You can obtain this mount
(1.5%ish according to wowhead DB) on the ELITE
inside The Maw in "The Beastwarrens" part. He's part of an event called Hunt : Shadehounds in which you will have 6 packs of 3 adds to kill and then the elite becomes attackable. After all 6 packs are dead, he runs into the cave behind him and becomes attackable. Come with a little group because he has 559k health and he hits for a bit (2 or 3 people should be enough if you have a tank or pets). At 50%, he runs even deeper in the cave. You can click the chains to make you jump through the hole not taking any fall damage.
The event is on coords 53 78 (
/way 53 78 Gorged Shadehound Event
This mount has the particularity to be ridable in The Maw (the only two others mounts which are ridable inside of The Maw are
that you can obtain by finishing "Twisting Corridors" wing in Torghast at Layer 8 and
(unlocked at 9.0.5) that you can "craft" doing a complete puzzle in the Maw, more information
You DO can access this part from the beginning but you will have to deal with
that will periodically fear you for a few seconds and deal HUGE amount of damage (60-70% of your life).
You will not have this
anymore in "The Beastwarrens" by using
that you will receive doing the quest
that you will get once you reach "Ambivalent" reputation level with Ve'nari. HOWEVER, you DO can drop the mount even without having reached Ambivalent (and quest) reputation. But you will have to deal with the fears and big damage.
As of 9.1 and Korthia release, if you do the 3rd chapter of the Korthia campaign (Focusing the Eye), you will not have to deal with The Eye of the Jailer anymore and so you will not have to deal with a deadly debuff, making it much easier to do your trys every 2 weeks. For your 60 alts, you can skip up to 3rd chapter of Korthia Campaign thanks to skip by speaking up at
. (He offers 3 subsequent skips : First two chapters of your covenant campaign, then first 3 chapters of Korthia campaign and then first 3 chapters of Zereth Mortis campaign; the skip which is important to have an easy access to this rare is the
This elite is killable on a hunt-bi-weekly rotation, like 8.3 invasions (and their rares). So, killable ONE time in 3.5 days and then not killable for 10.5 days (others hunts during that time). Killing him will also grant you 525 reputation to Ve'nari
and one complete level with the Eye of the Jailer.
. You can follow the next occurence of the event in the "Today in WoW" / SL category of Wowhead.
TL:DR : To get this mount :
Reach "Ambivalent" reputation level with Ve'nari, do the Rule 6 quest, unlock Beastwarrens part of the Maw,
Do the event and kill
bi-weekly, it means killable ONE time in 3.5 days and then not killable for 10.5 days (others hunts during that time).
For your alts, mind speaking to
, skip the Korthia campaign, so you don't have the Eye of the Jailer mechanic in the Maw which could destroy you in a few seconds.
If you are a mount collector, your best bet to get this mount fast is to multiply your 60 alts as you "only" have 26 attempts per year and per character (1week/2).
Good luck on farming it !
I just killed this NPC as the final part of the Hunt questline today and got the mount.
This mount dropped today for me. The great thing is that the mount goes into the mount collection. So every char on your account can use it in the Maw. The mount itself shares the same model and mountspecial as bears. I submitted two screenshots that should be up soon.
Rarity String for all of the following:
Armored Bonehoof Tauralus
- This can be bought from the Necrolord Renown Vendor OR rarely looted from the
as I was halfway through the list of mounts and found their comments which helped me finish up the other half of the list. :)
This mount is only obtainable during the hunt event "Hunt: Shadehounds"
Does anyone know if you've got a chance to get this mount once every day while Hunt : Shadehounds event is up?
got it first try, no clue what the drop chance % is tho
i just join like 3 groups and it didnt phase me automatically, so i figure out u have to hearth out and run back to the area to get into the same phase with the leader....no idea if they gonna fix this as well...
If you are fortunate enough to have this mount it seems that being
in the Maw
while riding it will dismount you (and continue to dismount you) while the buff is active.
It would seem
not even Greatfather Winter
is powerful enough to summon his mount in the Maw.
This dropped for me today on 30/12. I did it on my main first and did not get a drop. I was a little discouraged and took my Warrior alt who has done NOTHING in the maw except unlock the runecarver for the campaign, took one of the bridled hounds, ran to the event in the beastwarrens. I kept being feared so I brought food in between fears to not die from the damage, once the dog is unleashed you can tag it and get a chance at it dropping!
This is huge for mount farmers who dont wanna farm the rep on 20-50 chars! Just bring food/healer friend or something and go for it! Proof of it dropping:
And if you do not believe me, my alt who got it is named Strawberry on Magtheridon EU - You can see for yourself I do not have the rep on that one!
If you want to incorporate this mount into a mount macro, see
on the WoW forums.
You get one chance per two weeks to get this mount. So, get all of your alts to get the beastwarrens unlocked to up your chances!
Summon Random Favorite Mount
does not understand the mount restrictions in the Maw, and will not be smart enough to prioritize this mount when you're there. You can use this macro to prioritize it in the Maw and fall back to

Not sure what the drop chance is! Was in group of 4 ppl yesterday. 2 mounts droped! 1 of them was mine :)
I got him :)
Did the whole event only with my friend and we both got the mount, both at our second try.
I'm so glad I can use it inside the maw :))

How to get Mawsworn Soulhunter
once per week during this hunt + expecting weekly hunt rotation. blizz has gone mad
Seems that the model is the exact same as the Corridor Creeper one that is a reward from completing layer 8 of twisting corridors. I'd say that's way, way easier to achieve, took me a day to do it given that layer runs tend to go for 1-2 hours each at some point.
Solo as DH 190. Dropped trash itens.
Got it on first attempt , would be nice if we can find a Drop rate % for this.
After reading Sammyknight's comment down below, I tried to farm the hound the way he did. I unlocked the Beastwarrens on my main, but nothing on my 3 alts (On 2 I unlocked the runecarver, on the third nothing).
IT IS possible to go to the Beastwarrens and tag the Hound for a chance at this mount.
All you need is a character that is able to heal himself (Protection paladin and balance druid work just fine, tested this myself), and on characters that don't have any forms of self heal, just buy food and eat mid fears (Death knight).
- The Hunt is NOT visible on the map, or the minimap. You also don't see progress on your UI. I never waited for more than 10 minutes though, so it's not that bad.
- The fear lasts around 6 seconds, and it drains exactly half of your hp. It's not number based, but % based, meaning the dot was hitting way harder on my DK tank, than it was on my balance druid. It drains exactly 49% of the hp if you don't get hit by anything else.
- I have the Corridor creeper mount, making it way easier to get to the area. One thing however I advise, is that when you get close to the hound area, dismount. The fear on the mount is so fast, and will most likely pull mobs that hit quite hard, while the fear on your normal speed on the other hand, is managable.
- I always park myself just at the entrance of the cave where the hound flees upon completing the first part of the event. Out of 40 fears, not a single one pulled a mob, so it was all good.
- Upon killing the hound and looting it, the Rarity normally counts the attempts. Also Sammyknight and others have proved, that you can obtain the mount even if you don't have the Beastwarrens unlocked.
- I still don't have the mount though. Will update for sure when (if) I receive it.
As of 01/29/21:
BEWARE if you are close enough to the event that your party kills the Shadehound before you are in range it will complete the hunt but it will not allow you to loot it.
This is my ticket response:
"Upon further investigation, the reason for it is they were too far away, but you're still able to get credit or reputation. Next, you have to draw threat from the boss. For you to be eligible for the rewards. You are going to have to wait until next week and kill them again for a chance at loot.
What I can suggest is, the next time you and your party will start a quest. Make sure that everyone everyone will be able to participate, so everyone will get the reward. Communication is the key. "
How high droprate does the mount have? I got mine today, was totally in shock! I only killed this boss 4 times.
Add this line below your mount macro to handle the Maw mounts:
/use Mawsworn Soulhunter
Here is my full mount macro for reference. The parts at the bottom with /stopmacro are so it shows an icon when you're mounted instead of just the ?.
/use Archmage's Prismatic Disc;Sea Turtle;Swift Spectral Tiger
/use Mawsworn Soulhunter
/cast Master Riding
I spent about 11 hours grinding all twisting corridors on Tuesday for the maw mount, the day after, this drops for me, I can't tell if its lucky or really unlucky 😂
Here is a macro that will mount up with a maw mount if you are in the maw. If you are not in the maw, then it selects a flyable mount if in a flyable zone. if not in a flyable zone, then it picks a ground mount. The mount IDs for the 3 shadehounds are included if you want to swap them out.
--maw mount IDs are: 1441,1442,1304
/run m=C_Map.GetBestMapForUnit("player");if(m==1543 or m==1648)then C_MountJournal.SummonByID(1441);end
/use Grove Defiler;Snapback Scuttler
This mount will be much easier to farm in 9.1 as a lot of the maw (like rep and the animaflow travel) will be accountwide so you can travel there without fear of being feared (you see what I did there lol)
Dropped this mount last night on my 35'th attempt. It dropped for me on a character which did not have access to the beastwarrens area. As a matter of fact it was a level 60 fresh toon, so i can confirm it still drops in 9.0.5 just by tagging the mob without having any reputation at all. Happy hunting!
Easily (although not particularly
) soloable as a 225 Protection Warrior. I didn't even have to use Kyrian vials, just keep Shield Block up as much as possible and he can't out damage the healing from Indomitable.
Short macro incase you want to add other things. :)
/run t=C_MountJournal;z=C_Map.GetBestMapForUnit("player");if (z==1543 or z==1961)then t.SummonByID(1304);else t.SummonByID(0);end
0 - Random Favourite
1304 - Mawsworn Soulhunter
1441 - Bound Shadehound
1442 - Corridor Creeper
1543 - The Maw
1961 - Korthia
Can this event be done and/or mount can drop if you do not yet have gotten the rep and Ve'nari quest to unlock the beastwarrens hunt? Since you can now walk in the area since 9.1
Is this mount dropping as of 9.1? Been farming it on many characters over the last months, in party, and it never dropped for anyone
There is a bug with the Hunt: Shadehounds event in which the event gets stuck on some servers and it cannot be completed. If you experience that, your best bet is to try to find a Shadehound group on another server because it won't spawn on yours.
Can anybody confirm this is still dropping while in a party? Haven't seen one drop in the last 3 rotations in any of my character's parties.
if you came with locked event when goal doesn't show up (without reputation + quest rule 6) and you kill adds for goal (even in a group and with a party leader on another), the event will not start and the hound will remain neutral, you need to wait until someone else will kills adds with an open hunt and then event will start
