1. Zone to a low-level dungeon
2. Proceed to a room with huge packs
3. Blast a horn
4. Bladestorm/Arcane Explosion/Divine Storm/anything else
Now you CAN aggro every bear in a 40-yard radius.
YES! greatest invention since the
..and the Epic
If someone could test how it actually works that would be nice, most importantly:
- does it give flat threat ?
- is it a direct AoE taunt ? is so, does it keep monsters on you for 1-3s like base tank taunts ?
- does it work on lvl 95+ monsters ?
Dropped by Blackhoof in Valley of the Four Winds.
Aggros neutral mobs as well.
Got this earlier today, its funny to use when players are near by, youll see /1 light up saying stuff like "I HEARD NPC SCAN GO OFF BUT I CANT FIND THE RARE SPAWN"!
will redirect the threat generated by this item (I assume similar abilities behave the same too).
Ninja-puller v1 5000
Doesn't count as a taunt. Only gives very little threat - not even enough to beat healing aggro.
Things it does:
Deal exactly 1 threat
1.5-second cast that can't be kicked or silenced (i.e. physical ability)
Generates a graphical effect like the one shown in the screenshot. It also looks a lot like the Sonic Boom ability from the Blackwing Descent fight Atramedes.
Things it does not do:
Tag mobs (i.e. other players can take the mob and its loot from you if they hit it before you)
Taunt mobs (i.e. it doesn't apply a debuff that prevents mob aggro from leaving you)
Your laundry, etc.
This absolutely does generate some threat or has some kind of taunt. I was just in a group killing sha of anger, we were low on heals so we were struggling. At about 10% left all but about 5 of us were dead, and there were adds everywhere, at least 30 of them I'd say. I used the horn and nearly all of them started chasing me, and kept chasing me for the rest of the fight (I ring of frosted them and frost nova'd and so on), even though some of them had some of their health taken off them by other people and there were healers around healing their asses off and so on.
Tested in Halfhill, does trigger safe-zone guards if within 40 yards of an opposing-faction player. Unsure if PVP flag required for this.
If only this worked on Alani...
Found this item really useful for the
You have to be in LoS or it wont aggro them.
I call it "Horn of Instant Adventure".
This is an excellent tool for soloing the first boss in BWL (Razorgore).
Dismiss him and use the horn to get almost every mob on you instead of on razorgore.
I highly recommend this item for tanking classes that need to do dailies (assuming you can hold 10+ mobs at the same time). This item only has a 2 minute cooldown, but pulls everything in a 40 yard radius. That means when you need to kill a bunch of mobs in the same area, you can just get in a super high density area and pull ALL THE THINGS. The time I spent camping for this probably will save me more time in the long run, especially if this works in newer xpacs. My Klaxxi dailies took about 10 minutes because all I did was 1) Fly to area 1, blow horn, loot. 2) repeat.
On the subject of Klaxxi dailies, use an AoE augmentation/enhancement if possible. The amount of damage you can put out becomes insane (I was doing well over 1million dps at one point as a blood DK).
DO NOT! I REPEAT DO NOT! Use this item near places with guards. I tested it out thinking I was safe in the Halfhill market just to find out the opposite is true. Needless to say I died in the most humiliating fashion >.<
Fun fact: you can aggro the
that you can't normally see unless you're on the quest (Orgrimmar cooking daily). Kinda pointless observation but still, maybe it can be used the same way on other untargetable/hidden mobs? :P
This item proved to be extremely useful for me during a Challenge Mode run in the Stormstout Brewery on my protection warrior, This item + Mocking Banner in the first boss party room can gather a lot of mobs pretty fast,
.... just make sure you use defensive cool downs of course.
The only thing i'm not sure of though is that maybe pulling too many adds can affect the time required to reach the 40/40 boss spawn.
Nifty little trick: With this, you can instantly find Lei Shi when he hides in Terrace of Endless Spring.
I can't wait to use this near TLPD campers in Storm Peaks!
I guess I've got bad luck but drop % says 20 for the horn on here and I've killed this guy 12 times no horn :(
Also the respawn timer for blackhoof seems to be correct at 70-90 minutes although from try #8 to #9 for me I swear it took 3 hours for him to respawn I really don't think someone nabbed him from under me it is possible though. 70-90 minutes seems to be consistent though for you campers.
This thing is AMAZING for aoe grinding. I've been putting off leveling my cooking for quite some time. I decided to finally give in by farming
I specced Destruction. I then used the battle horn and kept
on everything. This generates a ton of
. I used those
. In between
Six pulls and fifteen minutes later I had 46
. This item made aoe farming the absolute most awesome way to do things.
The horn's sound sounds exactly like NPCScan's default alert message - imagine using it near an AFK mount camper.
I just did a ToT LFR where 2 guys were using Noggenfogger Elixir & this horn to aggro bosses over & over . The Looking For Retards raid would then boot everyone BUT them! GG. Such an uber item!

Got this today, and it is #$%^ing AMAZING. My challenge mode group found a great use for this. In the monkey room for Stormstout Brewery, you can pop this in the middle of the room, and aggro the entire room all at once. Makes it 100x easier than trying to go around the room pulling everything seperately. If you got lucky enough to find this on a 85-89 toon, it would be phenomenal for speeding up monkey run times.
This is a very awesome item for the Monkeyruns people commonly do as a form of 85-89 level farming, I farm it on each alt I get to 85 and do Monkeyruns till 89, if you intend on doing Monkeyruns I highly suggest getting this, for the last room pulling it all in 1 go speeds it up
Fun thing to do if your Lvl 90:
Go to the firelands.
Go to the spot for the achievement,
King of the Spider-Hill
Drop down one or two levels.
Use the horn.
You will get dragged around by all the spiders affected at once. I made a little game out of it to see if I could kill each spider I landed by before getting dragged off again.
Very useful for tanks working for Gold Challenge modes. A nifty way to quickly aggro every mob in a room for a quick burn. Assuming those mobs need to be killed of course, for the needed amount.
I created a short
of the Battle Horn's AoE aggro. Enjoy! :D
If you are trying to speed up the critter achievement, this does NOT work in Terrorweb Tunnel in Eastern Plaguelands.
This thing was practically made for troll-wiping LFR's at 3am. Huehuehuehuehuehue
I can't believe no one has said this yet:
Use this on the beach on the Timeless Isle, and watch the Hilarity ensue as you are assaulted by dozens of turtles.
Alternately, use it in a raid, along with misdirection on some poor dps or healer, and enjoy watching them get slaughtered before you leave.
Another fun thing, since it makes the same sound as npcscan, go to Storm Peaks, find an afk that is camping TLPD, and use it, then run.
EDIT: As of the newest update npcscan makes a new sound, most likely to avoid just that
Just got this on my level 2 Paladin, I have a feeling this is going to be fantastic for leveling Tank. It works exactly as it does at higher levels.
The battlehorn is wonderful farming tool. If you're like me and have the
profession on one of your characters then this amazing horn is a must-have item in that character's bag. I actually have mine easily accessible on my top action bar. I acquired it by beating the rare NPC
. I finally received the drop on either my 3rd or 4th attempt. On most occasions I've learned to pull two mobs at once at my favorite leather farming spots (see picture under screenshot tab).
As a courtesy to others, I would not recommend to bother "
mount drop campers
" as I've read in the previous posts. They're gamers just like you and I that are vigilantly awaiting for that precise moment to get the mount they've been anxiously awaiting. That's just simply not cool and could be you one day waiting on a mount. Happy Gaming.
Does this unstealth stealthers?
I know it would aggro a stealther and it would come up to you..
But my question is, can it be used to unstealth rogues?
Thanks. Scrolled through all the comments and did not see this question addressed.
Yeah it may generate a little threat but its a MUST HAVE for tank specs at least (Soo Garrosh adds, or o timeless isle when you want to pull all and every 'Angry Sprite' on their event, and such things...)
If you're doing quests in lowbie zones for Loremeaster, this thing is invaluable during kill quests. Just note that it also aggroes critters, so if you use it in Elwynn you WILL be attacked by fluffy bunnies and sheep.

This is the perfect tool to make klaxxi trash faster. - use at your own risk
Amazing tool to help the
of mobs in the Sra'vess farm spot for me on my Warrior. Be warned though, if you don't pay attention you can be killed quite quickly.
I found waiting for the rare spawn to spawn was taking too long. I went to the Timeless isle and just gathered up a ton of candlekeepers near the bonfire where the big orange Ordon chest is that you can only loot once. The candlekeepers drop rate is a lot lower, but they die fast and respawn quickly. Dropped in the first 20 minutes of going around and aggroing these and aoeing them down.
Easy way to farm this on a low level character
Have a 90 fly you out to Timeless Isle(easiest if you run the fatigue line around the island to end up on the east side; less corpserunning)
Corpserun your way to the middle of the lower level where all the candlekeepers are. I left my body dead in the middle of the largest group of candlekeepers.
Release, and stay in the middle of the area as a ghost. Any time someone in your group kills a mob, you'll be eligible to loot. I personally invited all the rep farmers in the area and offered the group gold if they were in the group when the horn dropped :) You can either pay the rep farmers in the area to grind for you or have a friend do the farming for you, whatever works ^^
Took about half an hour, well worth it for my level 20 warrior that's going to be leveled as a tank!
patch, this item is affected by the
WoD Toy Box
The Toy Box is one of the big features coming in Warlords of Draenor--you can store all of your vanity items, free up bag space, and use them on any of your characters!
If I heard the "use them on any character" part correctly, any lower level character of yours can now use this item. Will test this later today after the pre-patch is live.
Update: Logged in and my 1st lvl 90 toon showed this in her toy box grayed-out though she had it in her backpack. Logged in moments later with my lvl 90 shaman who had one and his toy box didn't even show the horn. When I mouse-over the grayed out toon's I get a fatal disconnect. Will give it a day or two to let them sort the bug out.
Final Update: Found this list of items from us.battle.net that will be removed from the "Toy Box" but haven't yet.
Ash covered Horn
Censer of Eternal Agony
Essence of the Breeze
Goren Log Roller
Rasha's Sacrificial Dagger
Rod of Ambershaping
Iron Star Roller
Shard of Archston
I'm sure there's more
to come but it looks like the Battle Horn is out the door.
Too bad this novelty item isn't considered a toy in 6.0.2. Would love to have this on all of my toons, instead of just my monk.
Why is this item not a toy? It needs to be, badly.
Be mindful that in patch 6.1 the previous behaviour of it only working on NPCs up to level 93 has been removed.
If you're like me and have been using this in LFRs to
motivate people, you might find yourself on the quick end of a vote if you "accidentally" use this now.
This item can no longer be used in Challenge mode (WOD) !
The message you get when you try to use "You cant use that here."
wishing of improved version of this with bigger radius and lover cooldown :)
This item is scheduled to be a
This item is becoming a toy in Legion!
Due to the popularity of this tool I have created a Wowhead
! Check it out and feel free to leave suggestions for me in the comments :)
New Toys - Old Items Converting to Toys
I figured it's better now than later to start farming the old items that will be converted to toys in Legion. Who knows if they'll lower drop rates or how heavily they will be camped once they're added to the toybox.
I made myself a Google Sheets document to track all the toys being converted and it has the ability to mark off the item once you've found it. With the filters I can then hide any marked off toys. This has really helped me find and track the long list of items and I wanted to share it with the community. I've heavily cleaned it up for sharing purpose, so feel free to use it as you please!

Just a tip for getting this, if you're tired of farming
for it, go to Timeless Isle and farm the

waiting for him to spawn!
Item has been nerfed into oblivion. Now only works in Pandaria. Was one of the most powerful toys in WOW in terms of usability.
I am a shadow priest who loves running old content and Legion took away my two favorite things:
Mind Sear and the Battle Horn.
Thanks a lot. :( Shadow Crash doesn't even begin to apologize for it.
i just like the noise, is there any other toy like this?
