This devilsaur is the first to use the green devilsaur skin, which I hear has been lurking in the game files since release.
Any idea on how long the respawn time is? I think this would be helpful to other hunters looking to tame him.
BTW, he is a tamable rare, so he'll likely be akin to
Humar the Pridelord
, in the sense that you'll have hunters camping his spawn point.
Course, it'll be harder since this guy is part of an achievment, meaning other may be waiting to kill our big green friend...
...and also because Humar's no longer unique,
shares Humar's model.
You will certainly need a fear ward or two, some form of mitigation, probably a pot of speed for haste or a heroism cause he fears very often, is untrappable, and deals decent damage.
It's like the demonic yoshi on steriods, /flee
For hunters not trying to tame him, this guy is pretty easy to kite around the area. If you track beasts you can easily avoid the hostile mobs and eventually run King Krush into the ground for loot or achievements.
I did this last night as a level 70.
Killed him on 11/14/08 on Wildhammer... seems my group was the first to down him on the server. Had trouble taking him on as an arcane mage with just myself (lvl 72) and a fury warrior (lvl 71)-- had to get a party of 5, it would have been cake if alliance didn't try to kill our group and steal him out from under us. But we downed him and he droped BOE ring and Adventure bag full of gold. I recommend just tanking him up on the rocks as opposed to kiting him around as there are lots of additional mobs that will pull.
Solo'd him last night as a lvl 74 Prot Paladin. Kara and Badge gear.
I did have to burn my lay hands. I was lucky and was never feared into any mobs. I rotated light and wisdom to regen those stats as needed.
I found him in the north western corner of Sholazar Basin, between "The Makers' Perch" and the northern river.
He dropped a sack with 22 Gold and a

I just tamed this beastly of a dino about 15 minutes ago on Area 52. I couldnt do it by myself and had a priest healing me. Hits from anywhere between 1k - 5k (crits). He has a fear but iam not sure the timer on it but it would have to be more than 20 secs since i didnt require a fear ward to stop the canceling of my tame beast.
I found him by accident, while looking for
, pathing just south of Frenzyheart Hill all the way to where
, the black lion, spawns. From what i have heard though he may have several spawn locations just like
Here are some Pics after wards also of what he looks like. =)
killed ihm today.
Ring : 28Agi, 42Sta, 56 ATK Pwr
Abandoned Adventurer's Satchel
which gave me, 40 Frostweave cloth, 5 Crystallized Life
Killed him today 11/21/08 at 9:55 pm server time on Dragonblight. Location was 64/77 (southeast where white gorillas are). Was camping for Loque'nahak when he showed up 5 minutes into it :P

and the Abandoned Adventurer's Satchel
Found him this past weekend around 70,73 heading West from the area with the apes towards the area with the wasps. I have never seen him since, so it's unknown what his spawn timer may be.
I have been told his spawn point is around 67,80, but no idea on a timer.
Just tamed this guy, again near the Shango spawn point. Hardest pet I've ever tamed... for those who want to tame it before 80, you'll need a priest. And of all the healers, I say priest for shield and fear ward. At level 77 I have 12.5k health and like 9k mana, so pure pve gear and although I dodged heaps before I started taming, once I did I didn't dodge once. Hence, if you're like me, you'll need a few heals to survive the tame (I had no haste or anything). This is fine, just make sure you get him to about 75% before you start taming, to make sure you don't loose aggro to the priest. We also had another hunter helping, using MD when he could to keep my threat up and this helped too. Also, regarding spawn timers, at almost exactly that time yesterday, I saw an ally kill the spirit beast. I've been in the zone since 7am this morning, haven't seen either King Krush or the Spirit Beast, so I'm thinking that maybe they're on a 24 hour spawn timer connected to each other. This is a theory though and it could be a coincidence...
Good luck fellow hunters, finally have both the spirit beast and my green devilsaur so I can get back to leveling and boy have I had enough of that zone lol.
I just ran across King Krush in Sholazar Basin while trolling for Loque'nahak. He appears to have the same or similar spawn/roam points as the other rares that spawn in Sholazar. In this particular instance I spotted him just south of The Maker's Perch heading north east along the side of the road at approximately 28,43. I had no intention of taming him since I already have a Devilsaur, and there were too many other people about anyhow. So myself and another player tagged him, me without a pet and took him down.
Make sure he doesn't sneak up on you...
Just tamed him on Burning Legion. Spawned by the southeastern Gorillas and patted west towards Pitch. The other day I had camped out for around 5-6 hours and one of my fellow guildies had killed him fifteen minutes after I had logged. Imagine my surprise when he spawned after I flew around once today -- lucky for me too, since I hadn't planned on staying.
Took me about 10 minutes with a healer and a couple guildies around to keep alliance out of the way after one point where an alliance had actually tagged him when I had to feign death (unlucky for him in the end when Krush and I owned his face). I was amazed at how quickly people arrived too... lots of miners on my server love to circle the basin.
MOST retarded tame ever. I had an amazing Druid healer helping me, and even when I tried haste pots + abandoning pet for beastial wrath + deterrence I ended up losing aggro and had to start over. At one point when it started getting crowded I wanted to just kill him for the achievement, luckily my guildie kept me going. I would definitely not recommend solo taming this guy; I thought that I'd be able to but he hits like a MAN.
Named him a variation of "Yoshi." Neat little bug with this pet, his backwards walk has glitched animation, only occurs when you do eyes of the beast though.
tired to tame him today and a deathknight ran up and killed him on my second attmpted with a preist
"I will name you Yoshi!"
Dr. McNinja fans will get this.
I found King Krush today 2 hours after servers came up next to Pitch. Sadly he was being fought by a group of alliance. The area around Pitch seems like a very popular spawn area for King Krush/Loque. Also just mentioning when I found Loque last night, it was north of Shango across the river.
"I will name you Yoshi!"
Dr. McNinja fans will get this.
WoW wont let you name a hunter pet Yoshi
says the name is reserved :(
King Krush spawned 2.5 hours after Aotona's death tonight on my server. I had been circling the map just checking Loque's spawn points when a friend spotted the bird in the middle of no where around 35/67. Krush was around 37/28.
Definitely get your friends to spam the /target macros while they're herbing/mining/doing dailies in the zone. I never would have gotten a death time without help.
Anyone got a respawn timer on this guy?
He shares respawn timer with the spirit beast and some other rare mob (a big parrot) apparently two of these rare beast cannot be on the area at the same time. Respawn timer is about 3-6 hours.
Honestly, I want to tame this guy not because he's green, but because that would mean I don't have to slog way the hell out to Un'Goro or the ass-end of Netherstorm. I don't like dinos regardless, but it looks like every raiding hunter will at least need one stabled, until Blizzard figures out how much damage they want these things to do in comparison to cats.
I just killed him not long ago, I didn't even know this guy existed until I ran across while mining :). Didn't have anyone ready to help me tame him, so I just killed him instead which was pretty satisfying itself.
Here is a screen of his corpse.
Is he immune to Traps and Fear or why are people having problems to tame it solo?
I found him between The Makers' Perch and The Savage Thicket.
I tried downing this guy by myself as a 78 Undead Warlock. Was going fine until he feared my pet and hit stupidly hard on me, I tried to Deathcoil him but he seemed to be immune to fear effects. I died and tried again. He might have low HP for an elite but he hits really hard on clothwearers.
When he feared my pet I hit Soulshatter to drop my threat, it worked and it was quite comfortable, I could have held on and got the kill myself but a passing level 80 Human Pally joined in.
Dropped a bag containing 18g and 20 Frostweave cloth, aswell as King's Eyesocket of the Invoker.
Killed him at 48,43 but was actually moving south on the east side of glimmering pillar, guess he just walks around it or in a semi circle on the southern side.
Just 1 of his again confirmed spots.
from what i read he isnt on the same spawn points as loq, he spawns very south along cliff wall, and paths along west wall and where i killed him.
The bird is found in the center of the zone in the more dense area known as wildgrowth mangal not just the side thats labeled it but the east side of the lake also
I tried to tame this rex, died few times because he hits really hard. He was walking between 46.40 and 53.42. I asked for help with healing but instead my healer killed it -.-
You can use Elixir of lightning speed and potion of speed to get taming down to 15 sec. Also use bestial wrath to be immune to its fears. Sould work. If you do it fast enough and can survive his hits, souldent be any problems.
Found King Krush @ 65, 77 in Sholazar Basin. I'm a resto shammy but was able to take him down by myself, dispite his health being over twice my own.
For hunters trying to tame him if he spawns near Nesingary Camp, don't do it near there, I found out the hard way by getting feared into the camp, and the guards continued to finish him off while I was dead, I was not happy. Wait till he patrols far far away.
I am so taming this guy and naming him Reptar.
King Mosh v2
For Silver Hand Hunters:
King Krush's corpse was seen at 62.5, 82.1 at approximately 5:30 PM server time. I'm not sure where he spawned since I only came across the corpse while doing rounds for Loque'nahak, so good luck!
: King Krush was sighting again today at 50, 42 at 2:12 AM server time.
Shaman offered to help me with a Earth Shield, which was quite handy. As fast as possible I tamed a Serpent that wasn't far away from there for a new Beast Within.
Had a few more attempts at taming the guy but every last 3 seconds it feared me
On which server you get such lame ass Shamans? Tremor Totem > Fear Ward
I'm on the Dalaran server, and I tamed this guy. Me and a priest friend of mine had been camping his spawnpoints for over a week, and when he DID show up, the tame was easy. The idea people suggest of popping BW then having a fear ward up seems to be the best bet. Once you pop BW you can have the priest use fear ward, it won't be consumed until BW fades and the King fears again. Also, I suggest using aspect of the monkey instead of dragonhawk (Well, yeah you can use both I realize this now. But I used monkey -- not like you need the +atk power during a tame anywho!), assuming you have spec'd into the improved talents, in which case monkey will reduce the damage you take -- and some stam gear helps too.
--got him just in time too, those Alliance hunters were just DYING to kill / tame him as I was taming him.
Submitted a screenshot. If you're after him, don't give up! He is totally worth it!
Found King Krush this evening (Icecrown, US Server) around the same area as previously reported, Northern Sholazar Basin, near Makers Perch. I wasn't even looking for him, I just stumbled across him. I was able to solo him as a lvl 79 Hunter. (I'm a Marksman Hunter, not a Beast Master, so I can't tame Exotic's ... more's the pity). Took me a couple minutes, a runic healing potion, 2 Feign Deaths, 2 Disengages and he killed my pet (Bear), but I solo'ed him. :) He dropped a ring (King's Eyesocket of the Forseer) and a bag with 18+ Gold and 20 Frostweave.
I wanted to add an important note:
King Krush can spawn at exactly the same time as Loque'nahak, meaning the spawn is not mutually exclusive. I know this because I watched both appear right in front of me, feet from each other. This may be related to Loque'nahak being a neutral mob, while King Krush is hostile.
He shouldn't shrink when you tame him... I like the porspect of my own pet dino stepping on my enemies and annoying friends and aggravating but unattackable samefactionasme brethren...
I found this guy right between suntouched pillar and nesingwary base camp not 15 minutes into my first trip there. I just barely managed to solo him thanks to my felguard but he killed me too by fearing me into a group of mobs just before he died. I got a nice ring, 20 frostweave cloth, 25 gold, and the Northern Exposure achievement from him. Oh and sorry to any hunters that might have been after him, hehe.
I found it at 49.6 45.0..Got a caster ring and 18g+20 frostweave out of the satchel
Found him just west of the Glimmering Pillar, easy to solo as lvl 80 prot. warrior.
I came across this monster at 28,71. Sadly a lvl 78 alliance pally was killing him. Before he could finish off King Krush I ganked him, tapped it, and killed it for myself. Normally I would have tamed him but I had my spirit beast with me at the time. Good Luck to any hunters looking for him!...Srry for killing him but I did ask in General Chat if anyone wanted him. He dropped 20 Frostweave Cloth, about 20 gold, and a ring.
Just found King Krush dead at 30.51 at 4.30am game time
Yoshi? That you....? I don't wanna kill you........
Just ran into this guy while I was out mining in the basin of Dragonmaw
He feared me almost a dozen times, and it took me a while to drop him as a poorly geared 80 Holy Pally.
Dropped the ring, and the bag which contained 23 gold, 9 silver, 10 copper, and a stack of frostweave.
The real miracle is that none of the alliance dropped in to gank me, as it was right in the middle of the mining patrol route.
I just solo tamed this guy on my 80 Hunter.
23,490HPs, 26.17% Haste and some excellent timing.
Just found his corpse at 28.2-57.9. :(
Several days in a row on The Underbog I've spotted King Krush while looking for Loque - each sighting was @ 6:01am server time on consecutive mornings - same area (63.4, 83.5) but 2 different spawn points. Though his path led thru the coords listed above from his spawn point @ Skyreach Pillar and vice versa. If you aim to tame him - I would advise bringing heals. He stomped the 17k hp out of me within 10 seconds. Packs a little unexpected punch, that one.
I looked out for this guy at the same time I looked out for
. Very long wait. Still no luck as of 2/18/09! I'm a 78 hunter looking to tame him. Hope to find him soon. Will report back when I get him.
Saw this guy spawn at the lower, east most gorilla camp along the mountain border at 2:50 server time today on Kargath.
Tried to tame him with another hunter, but he took off running through all the hive bugs making it next to impossible without having tons of "bug" aggro.
By the time we finally got him cornered near the pillar, here comes an orc hunter who promptly kills him right out from underneath us all. Very frustrating.
Saw this guy spawn again, very next day approximately 7:50 PM server time at the same location.
Again, ganked and deprived of my tame, despite camping the spot with a raid group of 7 people. This time an alliance Death Knight, who I will leave un-named, killed it. When we questioned their motive, they cursed at us and promptly logged out. Issue was reported to a GM who is investigating it as I type this.
I was able to tame king Krush np with my prist friend if you dont have a prist you will fail so bad even at lv 80 trying to solo him, took me 3 times by myself but then got my friend was camping this guy for over an hour but ... SO WORTH IT
make sure the prist knows Fear Ward
King Krush was walking just directly east of the Nesingwary Base Camp as I was leveling my alt Undead DK to level 78 at some ridiculous time in the morning on the Lightbringer server (around 2 AM). My first attempt I was able to get him down to around ~20% or so health before dying. I quickly rezed and grew half a brain and decided to kite him over to the Nesingwary Base Camp where he was quickly dispatched by the NPC's. He does fear quite often.
King Krush is one of the mobs to get the
achievement so that was a nifty little bonus. However he was not lootable for me eventhough I did get the achievement.
Good reason to tame this mob or King Mosh in Un'Goro, allot of people are aware of or at least have confusingly encountered the bug where a hunters pet (to another player) appears with the pretamed name and size, well if the pet was an elite before it was tamed then this shows in the bug too. So if you do manage to tame one of these two devilsaurs it is inevitable at some time you will be the wonder of other players when they see you with not just a full size devilsaur (and they are some size), but a rare elite huge monster with the original name of King Krush or King Mosh. Sadly however the bug is temporary and the pet will not have out of the ordinary stats.
screw the stupid spirit beast; i'm hunting for this.
I encountered this fellow last night on my level 77 Death Knight, just north of Nessingwary. I solo killed him and I stumbled upon a pleasant surprise: Killing him awarded me 41.000 experience. Nice bonus during the leveling proces :) So if you meet him while leveling, try and take him down.
What for abilities do he got after you tamed him?
I found him near Skyreach Pillar
Tamed about 4:10pm server time as a fresh 80, following Loque sightings just after 3am (gave to a friend who was looking) and at 12:09pm (took for myself since nobody else was around). In each case I'd done about two laps of Krush's spawns after the hour before finding something. I'd done my two laps, figured I wasn't likely to see him this hour and then bam, just below the Maker's Perch, there he was.
Had 18.5k life, about 900 haste (potion, trinket, misc gear), and enough resilience to be uncrittable.
Krush hits like a truck.
I had heard this through comments here and elsewhere and was still unprepared for how much he hurts. While taming you will be taking 2-2.2k hits. He actually killed me just as the tame finished, but since I saw him despawn I was pretty confident... still held my breath til I got back to my body and summoned, but there he was :D
Good luck to all searchers!
I've seen him twice and both times he was where Shango is at about 2:55am Uk time.
I'm really annoyed right now. I was the first to get to him, he must have just spawned. I got straight in there bestial wrath and pet abandon and was taming him when some Night Elf Druid comes along and starts killing him, King Krush kills me, i get back to my corpse having found the druid having killed it despite asking the druid to leave me tame him prior.
I just hate people like that, why do they have to ruin the game for others. These spawns are hard enough to tame without some idiot trying to kill it in the background. I love devilsaurs and i was looking for Loq both times i've come across him but i think its awful that players can do it. Its far easy to kill the beast then tame it.
i have yet to understand what is so great about him
he doesn't look anything fancy
i mean isn't that why hunters tame loque'nahak?
cause he looks cool and his spirit powers?
really loque'nahak is worth taming
pass on him
I belive King Krush is the rarest pet. No one has him as pet on my realm (burning blade). There is one more thing to prove it: I've found Loque 6 times: 3times as dead 2 when I tamed :) and I killed him once as well.
I found King only 2 times. The first time I tried to tame, but I wasnt prepared so it was a failed attempt and a human rogue killed him while I was away and eating to regain energy. The only thing I saw a huge corpse appeared on my sight range... For the second time I made a tame macro and practiced some times so my tame time was about 12-13 seconds (+340 haste rating on my gloves (hyperspeed accelerators)), potion of speed (500 haste), and 500 haste from gear). It was again a failed attempt but not my fault. It was a survival dwarf hunter's fault!
So you better practice how to tame him cause you can find him any time. Here's my taming tactic: get an useless pet like others wrote, find the dino and if he fights some mobs kill those too or wait but waiting isn't a good idea if you found him at daytime. Get in tame range equip some items that has much stamina click on abandon pet and before you click on yes pop bestial wrath, now abandon and use a taming macro.
Ok Ok, i have noticed some comments on how to tame simply take too much unneeded effort, you do not need to flex a muscle with my way. simply place your ice block trap between you and the beast, then tame the beast, it will begin to charge at you and will be caught in the frost trap, low and behold......you are still taming while he is freezing his nuts off :D easy peasy
Hope this helps.
I had just found King Krush to see that he was in combat with a Night Elf Druid and had 2,000 health left, at that point there was nothing I could do so he was killed, I found him right next to the Glimmering Pillar....Good Luck..
Well I've been searching for King Krush/Loque on my hunter for about 5-6 days, basically since I hit 80. It was 1:30 so I did my rounds. Started at the Southern Gorilla spawn and made my way around. Right as I started my second time around at 1:35 my macro starts spamming me which I had to do a double take at the name thinking 'NO WAY!'
I find him in combat with a horde warrior. Whenever I search for the sholozar rares I duel box my paladin and my hunter for the speed boost and heals. I land on my hunter and manage to kill the warrior, I'm having a complete panic attack but I manage to lay down a freezing trap and KK just ignores it, my paladin has been feared and my cat (that I use so I can dismiss it if KK or Loque shows up) is getting the beat down. My heart is pounding my freezing trap is on cd, I've basically lost all brain function.
The warrior rezz's and he's trying to kill my hunter, by this time I knew that taming KK was out because he was down to about 2k health and I have a warrior knocking me around, and my paladin is MIA. My hunter dies from the warrior, I switch to my paladins screen kill KK who is at about 200 health and then kill the warrior so I can get out of dodge.
Looks like I'll be back to the hunt in 3 hrs. Even though I wasn't able to tame King Krush, I was happy to have found him because over the past 5-6 days I hadn't managed to find any of the rare's alive or dead, so this makes me want to keep looking.
Even though KK is immune to Freezing Trap I Hammer of Justice'd him on my paladin and that did stun him.
/ \ This is Bob, Bob thinks that King Krush looks and is better than the other Dinosaurs.
/ \ ☻ That was Bob when he tried to fight King Krush
I was on my deathknight and just got back from being AFK, I was at the Nesingwary place. And i turn around and see King Krush fighting with the guards. He was already at 50% and i was the only person there. So i helped them kill him. I got the achievement but no loot :(.
I havent seen him except for that one time, So if you get lucky you might see the giant around there. :D Good luck!
Just solo tamed him (1:30am~) on US-Arthas. I walked in with 22k~ hp, and walked away with 150hp. Found him just south of the The Glimmering Pillar with NPCScanner. Just bought a crapload of +stam gear, some haste food, and used the bm/dismisspet/tame big mean trex trick.
So King Krush will have the same stats as any other devilsaur after hes tamed? If your in a group must I have aggro to tame him or can I let someone tank him?
I'm a lvl78 hunter (horde), with no leet skills, only a handful of blues and I tamed this solo. I thank everyone for the hype because in the end it was a little anti climatic but my heart was pounding like crazy when I was taming him (I was expecting a wipe or two lol)
What I did was make sure I ate the best haste food I could get, use the best stamina rich gear I could find (one item was a leather item, armour not a issue) used the best stamina scroll I could have, used stoneblood flask. When the time came (it's not a dot on the map but he was walking away from the makers' perch towards Shango) I sent trash pet in and shot a scorpid sting, then clicked abandon pet option and before I actioned I hit Beastial Wrath / Intimidation macro I have, then I completed abandon pet.
I then clicked this macro:-
/use Free Action Potion
/use Speed Potion
/cast !Tame Beast
With only 18k buff I tamed him with plenty of health to spare, so much so when Shango decide I was near her long enough and started to attack, I killed her without dying. Again not braging I have no skill lol.
The hardest part was wiaiting for the spawn, loque had spawn for three days straight (three times in one 24hr period) and aotona spawned twice.
Very cool pet, look forward to lvl with him.
caught sight of this big guy around 47,43. Yup he does fear but managed to pull thru despite fearing into rhinos. was well equipped enuf to bring it down fast.
a fellow hunter also passed by and saw that he had loque as a pet. commended him on that but the interesting thing was, he was claiming he tamed loque around 2mins before he came to where i was killing king krush.
maybe it really is possible for 2 rares to spawn at a time
... or maybe RNG was just playing good that time for krush to spawn instantly after loque.
btw, yeah he is a devilsaur and is as big as one can get so u cant miss him.
Found him at the skyreach tower around 04.00 server time. I was actually looking for loque'nahak as a hunter but i found this one. Tryed to tame him but he used feared so it is indeed handy to search for a priest or shaman.
what is the respon time for him?
what is hes resown time?
Got him few days ago, Arie's Peak server, few minutes past midnight...looked impossible for me to solo tame him,it seams that he hits every few seconds over 3k dmg..He killed me 3 times, and than my priest friend arrived. In between this, I yelled about 10 times to another hunter not to kill him, that I'm waiting for a friend to come and help me tame him. At the end that guy is asking for a gold if I want him to walk away.After last 3 months of camping the area for Krush, I didn't want to miss this chance and agreed to pay him.Amount that he asked was 1000g;)
But never mind,gold is no problem for me,and believe me, King Krush is worth waiting for,he's a beauty,the reason why I love hunter so much.In my stables now awaits Loque,Gondria and Krush..If only Blizz gonna redo bm talents so I can use them in raids, because survival spec is much more powerful atm, and I don't wanna be around last few dps places at the list in raid..
I didn't check if anyone posted this before me, so I'll go anyway-INSTALL "npcscan" addon, and you don't need to camp at all, for any rare spawn mob.Go enjoy the game,and when any of the rares spawns, the addon will loudly and with animation alert you!
Happy hunting folks!
<removed>(##RESPBREAK##)8##DELIM##Thulm##DELIM##Removed the dead link.
Great map Oomie.. Made my own map about a week ago and wish i had your map to use.
about 2 months searching and i still havent tamed him yet.
In fact im 1 pet down cus i slipped and clicked abandon pet macro ;-(
Tamed him last night. - By his spawn point in the Gorillas to the south.
I found krush 3 times alive and once a corpse over a 2 month period.
Very Hard Tame - i was wearing full hatefull with over 21k health and the tame took under 18 sec and i was left with about 2k health when it was done.
I found the hardest part was taming him when there was nobody around. Each day - 99% of the time there was at least 17 horde and probably the same amount of alliance players in SB.. So when he spawned he would be killed in less than 2 minutes.. Which happened twice when i was trying my previous tames.
I was amazed when a pala put me on his ignore list when i wshp him for help to heal me during the tame!
Good luck to fellow hunters wanting him for a pet.. And for those of you wanting to kill him, just do it quick and say sorry for taking down the best beast in the game.
My wife mostly followed the preceding comment's instructions. Spawn time was about six hours after server restart, with her patrolling the zone since three hours after server restart. On her first attempt, Krush got two crits in (over 4k each) and a last hit which killed her. On the second attempt (after a killstealing mage was killed by Krush) she succeeded without the Stamina scroll (it didn't fire). The Target and Bestial/Dismiss/Tame macros were key.
She was up to about 26k HP and didn't have the Thorny Rose Brooch; Tame channeling time was down to about 16.2 seconds.
Killed him earlier today as an 80 Druid (feral) in bear form. Had no problem with it. He might have taken me down to 95% hp. Found him at (28,44) very easy kill.
look mario its yoshi wait thats not yoshi arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh its the devil
So I sadly just discovered that he is possibly the only rare needed for the achievements that is NOT tracked by npcscan. Anyone know his mob id number?
I suggest not to attempt to tame him unless you have very high HP or you have a group set up with a healer and you gain alot of threat.
Very hard to tame... Was looking for Loque'nahak and King Krush and I ran into Krush... he was no where near anyone and I believed I had a cool new pet...
I threw a frost trap down and shot a concussive shot. He charged and I began taming eagerly for him to run across my trap. Then my heart skipped a beat when he was immune to it. I tried to complete through the tame process but he had me to 2k hp so I feigned...
I regained health, threw another trap down and tried again thinking the first one was a fluke. Same thing happened again except this time my feign was on cooldown and he killed me.
I rushed as fast as I could to my body to find him wandering near Nesingway Base Camp. I announced in my guild "somebody come help me in Sholazar ASAP!" Luckily our pally healer comes to save the day but to think we want to kill it. He seemed disappointed when I said I wanted to tame it but none the less he agreed to help. Unluckily he was nowhere near Sholazar at the time so I followed Krush around watching if anybody was nearby until he got there.
Right as my friend arrives a rogue starts attacking Krush and got him down to 2k health. I said "Stop!" and he actually did.... for once somebody listened. He disappeared and Krush reset. And we tried to tame him once again... But my pally friend didn't know about how you need pet's attention the whole time and he began tanking him. I told him to heal me as I tame and shot Distracting Shot and tried again... He did as told but he took aggro every time he healed and my tame was interuppted. As we were doing this aggro pull back and forth we got unwanted attention from a gnome rogue who started attacking him. This is about when I realized it wasnt going to happen when Krush was nearly dead. Thats when I finished him with my Kill Shot and my guildy got the achievement.
But thats not the end of it... Out comes the rogue that started attacking him in the first place that I asked to stop. He seemed very angry. Thats when it hit me that I shouldve invited to group during this quarrel... Long story short I got somebody very angry for taking his kill (even though I did find him first after all) and didn't have enough gold to make ammends : /
Oh well. Don't make the same mistake I did... Have a healer with you, get lots of threat before tame, plan it out.
Good hunting =D
So after days of camping, and finding him once and getting ganked in the process, i just tamed this guy! :-D I'm only level 78, so I spent much of last night making myself pvp gear and stacking as much stamina and haste as i could. I had just over 21k health. When i was finished taming, I had about 1500 health left. Ouch! I'm still shaking! Now for the hard part, giving him a name deserving of such a bad ass pet!
I am from the Doomhammer server US and had camped for King Krush for a few days. I was initially pathing at the top of the hour looking for him, but never would see him then. When I did get the kill he had just spawned at The Glimmering Pillar. I forget the exact hour, but it was at 30 minutes past. May of been just a fluke, but I would suggest pathing his spawn points every 30 minutes if you want to catch him.
I'm thinking the lvl 80 hunters with full pvp gear should just wear that? Basically making you uncrittable and "resiliant" that should help you survive more hits...
While working on the Frostbitten achievment, I cam across him at the southern span point. A 80 warrior tagged him before I could but he wiped on him (very close though). A 75 DK then tried before I could tag but finished him off in a couple hits. I got the king down on my 80 shadow priest without much problem (fear ward is good) but I didnt get credit for the achievment. Tried opening a ticket but no response for several hours so I logged off. 13 hours and 20 minutes later the King spawned again at the north spawn point and I got the achievement.
oh, he hit me for about 1400 on 5.5k armor.
I was walking around on my Death Knight and i heard footsteps i was like.. "What is this?"
And then..*Dum dum dum* "Graaahh!" *crush*
I.. I died a horrible death..
oh god....its ungoro all over ago. NOOOOOOOOOO!
I just tried to tame King Krush on my 76 Troll Hunter. My friend found Loque'nahak and I was on my way to tame him when I first ran into Krush. I was shocked! I threw down a freezing trap and tried to tame him. It is safe to say I was destroyed. I ran back to my body and went to tame Loque while my friend got on his Druid. By the time he got to Krush, I was on my way back from the stable at the base camp. Two other players had seen Krush so the Druid had to keep up aggro on him. When I got there, we tried a few times to tame him, but his h.o.ts would pull Krush and break my tame spell. While juggling Krush and the multiple Wasps he kept fearing us into a Lock came along and killed him. I still got the achievement, but I could honestly care less about it. I wanted my pet Yoshi! I wish I would have read these comments before I attempted this... get a throw away pet, cast beastial wrath, abandon pet, cast troll racial, concussion shot and cast tame... that is my game plan for my next run in with this beast...
I'm on the Black Wing Lair server.
... atleast I got Loque.
Hey, I used the above macro posted earlier to tame him.
/cast Bestial Wrath
/use Potion of Speed
/cast Tame Beast
Since I'm a Dwarf however, I replaced Berserking with Stone Form (10% armor for 8 seconds isn't much but every bit helps) Another great way to up your stats is to take advantage of the new system that allows you to que for BG's anywhere. I entered an AV every half an hour while in Basin, got full buffs and then left. With Kings, Fort, etc my stats went up greatly. With full PVP gear on and two stam trinkets (one from AN and a +45 stam one from BC) and full AV buffs I had 28,000 HP.
After the tame was done I had a considerable amount of HP left. Not sure of the exact amount but I would say a good 7,000 to 8,000. He's by far the coolest pet in the game and besides the removed pets, the rarest. What makes him so rare is that 99% of the people who try to tame him aren't prepared, and there's not much time to get it right as he is generally killed 5-10 minutes after spawn.
One a side note, I also tamed the blue rare spawn bird while looking for Krush. Two hours later, Krush spawned as well. The bird is no where as cool though, lol.
WHY ME! ; (
So after an hour of looking for him he spawned at 4:23am just east of Nesingwary Base Camp. I dismount, use my free action potion, deterrence and start taming him. Im 3/4 of the way done and still have 3/4 of my health. I start smiling thinking he is mine and all of the sudden:
BANG! BANG! BANG! Yargh! Hiya!
The NPCs that patrol , called Wardens, start attacking him pulling aggro and taking him away from me = ( I shoot at him hoping to get aggro back and pull him away from camp but they killed him ; (
I already have Loque and Aotona but was looking forward to having King Krush too ; (
WORST LUCK EVER!
Well after 2+ hours searching, next day, he spawned around 3:30am at Glimmering Pillar. So I Cast Bestial Wrath, Abandon pet, use free action potion, Deterrence and start taming. Well....he fears me and kills me right after. I try again a few more times and fail every time. I could not believe it since the day before I was almost done taming without any problems before the NPCs at the camp killed him. So finally I ask for a healer in the area and comes and heals me. Well, after a few minutes of fears and running out of mana, both I and the healer, he kills us both. So we go at it again and 3 times right at the last moment he fears me. Just when I began to think it wasn't going to happen FINALLY I was able to tame him. = )
1)Free action Potions don't work. You still get feared.
2)He can fear you back to back or very quickly after the last fear. I would trinket out of the first fear and would get feared again a couple of
seconds right after multiple times.
3)Best place is probably at Glimmering Pillar or at the waterfall since there are less mobs to attack you when he fears you. At the wasp site
or Nesingwary Camp seems to be harder since there are more mobs or the NPCs that can kill you or him.
4) If you have healer with you, do some damage to Krush and build aggro so healer doesn't pull aggro with heals. I started taming him without any damage and healer got aggro and pulled him away from me. I know..common sense but I was just excited to find him and tame him that you just forget little things like that....I would do damage until you get feared that way you have higher chance of taming him at the first go. If you are alone, its going to be VERY HARD to tame him unless you are 80 with good gear. If he spawns at the Nesingwary camp, pull him far away from camp so the NPCs that patrol the camp don't kill him.
I would also like to add that Aotona seems to be the rarest of the 3. In all the time that I spent looking, saw Aotona only once and was my first tame. Saw Loque twice and King Krush 3 times. Also, I found them in the order I was looking for to tame. Well, I was first looking for Loque but found Aotona. Found Loque next day twice. First time another Hunter was taming it and second time I got him. Then while looking for King Krush I never saw any of the other 2 only King Krush. Weird no? :p
Well Good Luck to you all.
i've already camped him over 2 weeks and only saw him spawn once.(Didnt circle the map)
I camped at glimmering pillar and he spawn after first 4 days of camping..but later i was ganked by the horde -_-
Now am back to camping and its almost reaching 3rd week and i see no king krush.
I, too, found him north of Nesingwary Base Camp. I was raising my skinning and saw a Devilsaur and was like "Those aren't in the Basin.." So I saw he was a rare-elite and took him down solo (80 hunter). The bag after being opened gave 10g and a stack of Frostweave Cloth. Quite easy to take down at 80. It also counts in the Northrend Exposure achievement.
Spotted and killed 24.5 hours after a server restart. He was the last spawn I required for my Frostbitten achievement. I did 3 minute laps around the Basin for a total of 32.5 hours over 5 days before seeing him. Spotted him right around 61,83. During my searches I never saw his corpse, or a hunter taming him.
Man... glad this achievement is done and over with. I'm finally OUT of the Basin.
Spotted him today at 29,58 Llane Server @ 1:50 pm. He dropped
I found King Krush at the Skyreach Pillar at about 2:30 AM server time.
I had no healer, and he almost killed me despite using beastial wrath and abandoning my pet right away AND having PVP gear on. I quickly whispered three druids in Sholozar, and one immediately answered. I asked him to heal me and I would pay him handsomly. He did, and now I am FINALLY the proud, proud owned of the infamous green Devilsaur. Which completes my collection of pets, LoqueNahak, Skoll, Gondria and King Krush, all in which order I tamed them in.
I am the happiest hunter on Illidan right now :DDD
Judging if server restarts reset the spawn timers (6-12 hours depending on the spawn), KK is roughly a 8-9 hour spawn timer.
Sat there for 8 1/2 hours at the Glimmering Pillar just to be sniped down by a hunter before I could kill it for the Frostbitten achievement. Planned out to visit his spawn points 8 hours later, wound up sitting in spots for an extra hour only to find a corpse. :(
Just followed him for a bit before someone else killed him. Here's the path he took:
Engineers should have a higher chance of getting this guy by shear luck. One of his spawn points is right where the Northrend Wormhole Generator leaves you (At the bottom of the mountain)
Bestial Wrath and The Beast Within is now down to 10 seconds. Solo-taming King Krush will definitely be a challenge now!
After a couple days of camping and some prep, I finally tamed King Krush! Like many others, the first time I found him he was dead, and I cried a little inside =P
Today, I found him again 6 hours after realm restart. He was being killed by one of my guild mates, I whispered him to stop and he did. I had 600 haste from gear, a trinket that procs for another 400, and a potion of speed, food buff, and elixir. 1600 haste in all. I got into position, sent my trash pet in, I used the macros listed above by others, waited for my trinket to proc, hit the second macro and started the tame. It went off without a hitch the first time. I had about 4k health left of my 24k i started with. I'm so lucky it was a guildy of mine who was killing him at the time.
I love this beauty, he was worth the effort and gold I spent on haste gear. A couple things to note on spawn time. When he spawned the first time when I had just missed him, he spawned early, at 5:57pm. Today, it was at 4:30pm, just under 6 hours after realm restart. I still don't know what the pattern is.
GL to all those trying to tame this bad boy. It was a an epic solo adventure. I haven't seen another hunter with him on my server Doomhammer
found this guy east of the frenzyheart camp. i was doing a quick look for loque. i use silverdragon addon and npcscan. npc picked him up at the spawn point of loque with the white gorillas. i hit bw and started the tame halfway through he feared me. i did a 180 spin and to my shock i saw loque. first i thought it was another hunters pet since there was 6 hunters in SB. but then silverdragon popped up so i had addons going off everywhere xD. while this was happening king killed me. i ran back heart beating i tamed loque instead. then flew to the skyreach pillar and found krush. i respecced MM to reset the call stabled pet the reset to BM and drank up for some mana. i tried the things you guys put about BW a trash pet but he killed me 4 times in total, giving me raid repairs O.o , the whole time a human warrior watching lol. so i decided to kill him for the achievement. struggled i didnt want the warrior to get it so i pulled as soon as i ressed half hp and mana i brought out my raid wolf pet. i kept pulling aggro and he nearly killed me again until the ally warrior started helping. once he was low enough i could hit kill shot and down him. most epic thing ive ever done in wow. apart from realm first Skoll tame right infront of a nelf druid xD.
i posted on a game website about seeing loque and krush spawn at same time and no1 believes me -.-
this guy is in no way soloble to tame. he fears to much and hits like a 100mph train.
i remember struggling with mosh in ungoro. i had to have a dk help me. i tamed mosh twice. first time tame had finished and it said no space in stables lol cos it was full then he feared me for ever until the dk helped and i got tame.
Time for a King Krush Sob Story...
I've been searching for a week. That's not a long time, but I mean really pouring my heart into searching, trying to find this big boy because he's not only unique, he's the reason I made my hunter.
My Hunter is 80 now, and When I started searching she was 74, so in between questing, I came back to the Basin searching for the Big Green Meanie. But I learned what true mean was...
My NPCScan went off- Loque was found! I went looking, because it's not my big Green Meanie but I have 5 stable slots after all. I used it's target function, bam! Right under me... Then- I swooped down, and I was in a Dino's mouth. Krush had spawned too! They were right on top of each other! So I dropped down, I was in the haste gear, and using the other parts of this comments, I hasted up.
I dropped down, bestial wraith (He didn't fear me, or if he did, it failed) I was taming, taming, got him down to 1 second, and I was low health, bam! I dropped. (I had 16k) I freaked! I invited a paladin friend, ran back (This is at skyreach, graveyard is close) by time I res'd the paladin was there, and I sat up to grab King, but he was engaged, someone had not only killed Loque, but was after Krush.
2 Alliance... Of course... So I /beg /plead /whimper them trying to get them to understand I want to tame it, both of them, the warrior and the hunter... No! They wouldn't have it. They killed him, so they got them both at once.
Moral of the story- No-one likes you in game, there is no mercy, and no kindness. Don't expect anyone to help you, and certainly don't expect to tame Krush with Alliance around.
I will edit *IF* I ever see Krush again, odds are, I won't, so it was a good run.
Edit: Tamed Loque. Now, I just need the big one.
Edit: Saw Krush at 6 this morning. I hopped on before work. I saw him, attempted to tame him, to find I didn't have enough health. I invited a shaman to group, in hopes of getting the tame- it turned out with the shaman in group, Krush had someone to charge at, and low and behold, no tame.
Given that I was extremely late to work, I have decided- I will give up on these little obsessions, and I will wait until I am better geared, with more health, and I have enough haste to make it work.
I was doing my usual farming when i went around Sky Reach and I saw a huge devilsaur, sadly i didn't have bm at the time, and i checked the people in the basin to see if there were any hunters looking for him, but the only one there was right next to me, taking a node that i was going for then left, so then i killed him and got the acheivement plus loot, id rather have seen loq, but we'll see (:
killed around 11:00 am server time
I was able to tame King Krush at South east corner of the map. I came prepared with 1350~ haste rating (including buffs and use trinket effect) but feared 0.5~ sec before finishing taming process. I've tried taming it before the first fear and and after as well, but I was feared through that small window both occasions.
This mob is rare and easy target (you can't miss him even without a mod), even if you come prepared it'll be best if you get help from a nearby shaman or priest by offering them a compensation, unless you are lucky enough to have a friend or two around when you spot this guy.
In short, I received a bloodlust from nearby shaman and was able to tame without playing more RNG, he is hard enough to find why risk more?
Just killed it 04:53 servertime. Found it yesterday just the same time, at exact same spot, but druid was already killing it. So the spawnrate is most likely 24 hours (possibly 6 or 12).
Was my last one for Frostbitten, happy tauren =)
I just soloed him in about 1 Minute. Lvl 76 DK! I found him west of the Camp. Whats his respawn time?
i found him close to Serfex the Reaver I was so happy but when i saw that a shaman was fighting him i begged him to stop but he just played @#$%^ and then He killed it. Was so *!@#ing upset so i asked why he killed him, and he said "He attacked me" It was him or me"
Finally! I got him by the Glimmering Pillar. Toke my brothers shammy to help me but i was frustrated couse it failed so many times couse the fear. But finally i was at the last 3 seconds of the tame and he dint fear. Got him! Was so happy named him Krush also
Argh! I circled non-stop for a long time today and finally found him at 11:35 PM sever time! Someone had JUST killed him. I was checking his other spawn points apparently when he had spawned. Moral of the story: be quick if you want him! Get some help if you can. Well - guess I have 6 hours to kill before I start looking again!
Edit: 18 minutes later, Aotona was up.
Edit 2: Found him again at 10 PM server near Nessingwary. Two alli ganked me and the person helping me tame and then killed him. :( Looks like another long camp session.
Edit 3: Logged in a bit late today as I was out and about all day. Found him at 10:50 PM server, already dead, near Skyreach Pillar.
The horror, the horror
Aotona, Loque and King Krush are all tameable, and all 3 are part of the Frostbitten achievement.
This sucks bigtime.
They are the last 3 I need for Frostbitten, and I have spotted all 3 and past on killing them, a hunter of my faction showed up each time and wanted to tame them.
This is just a terrible desicion by Blizz. I know of hunters who have spent weeks in Sholazar waiting for Loque.
Having them part of the Frostbitten achievement is just an evil desicion by Blizz
Here is a tip for mac users trying to find this one create a applescript to keep you from logging out this totally makes camping a passive thing and all you need do is listen for npc scan to go off here is what i use copy and paste into script editor it will make character jump every 3 min for 12 hours
repeat 240 times
tell application "System Events"
tell application "World of Warcraft" to activate
key code 49
You have a point,chungking. In the first 18 mos of warcraft I played my druid and that was it. Healer burn out hit and I began a hunter. Before that, I just didn't understand (as well as I do now) how a hunter might feel about their pet.
Changing the BM spec so that they can tame exotics, and having many of those on frostbitten is frustrating for all. Even more so is the fact that many will kill aotona, krush and loque because they know a hunter is near and looking to tame it. Often has nothing to do with the desire to complete the achievement.
I once added something to the suggestion forum asking about some way to alter taming so that once it has begun, one can't kill the animal to stop the taming. On a PvP server, I'm not sure that would be fair. Or if it would be doable in any way on any server. I have no idea, just a thought.
Two nights ago I found loque by the white apes while I was mining with my druid. My main hunter has it and I remembered seeing another hunter by the skyreach pillar. The name was easy though to remember and I quickly whispered her. She was in dalaren. I told her "I was hovering above the cat, try to get here, but don't get your hopes up".
This was almost 2 am I saw no one else for close to 10 plus minutes until she got to me. She was able to tame him/her. I'm still amazed, just because there might not have been another hunter in the area, does not mean that someone would not have killed it-just to kill it.
In any case, I am at least glad it worked out for this hunter who had been looking for loque since last september.
Probably at this point the only
way to get tame the pet you want, or obtain the achievement you need, is to wait for the next xpac when everyone will have a lot of new things to do, including finding new pets.
For those still looking for krush, keep looking. I found him walking out of the area where I expected loque to be. Came walking through 2 trees where the white apes are toward the wasps. It was after 1am PST on ShC which is fairly populated- and he was around a lot of trees and shrubs. May be the only reason he lasted. But then again, I was looking for the cat, I would have seen a huge green dyno. I was tired, but not blind. I think he may have spawned just before I saw him.
I have never seen him in that area since. I've seen him near nessingway, around the ogres,makers perch ( usually it's been his body). So check even the less popular places. I'm sure I'd have seen him more often as I run alts through there, but with skinning, he could be tamed or killed and skinned in the time it takes to circle the area.
Oh, don't always be so sure when someone states " just tamed KK, or just killed KK/loque". It's a bit old and tired now; was meant to discourage young hunters for a few hours- but still seems to go on.
Found him tonight by the Glimmering Pillar... I was about to log for the night and he spawns right under me. Unfortunately I had nothing but Wrath to save me from the fear, and when he feared me, I ran RIGHT into the bull mammoths. So while I'm trying to fight them off alone and eventually feign thanks to abandoning Shango, a Night Elf shows up and shoots him down.
I saw a previous comment saying 8-9 hour timer... they should make an add on for this... if you know the spawn timer, you enter the time a spawn was last seen and it can warn you in advance that the time is coming up again.
what you could do is put down a frost trap and then tame him
that's the easy way!
I just saw him today 2/24/10 and he patted by nessingwary camp heading North-East across the river, and the pat or NPC's killed him within 2 minutes of spawning. So that might be why he is so hard to find!
My NPC scan found him suddenly (I assume it was when he spawned) when I was idling at 31,70. I was just North of Sparktouched haven. He headed North-West to the small waterfall, and then turned North-East to pass by the bottom of the camp at The Seabreach Flow. It was around 3:30 pm EST on Fenris server.
Goddamn, why do you stupid hunters tame this pet? It's a slightly different skin from other Devilsaurs, and you #$%^ off rarespawn killers.
24 hours ago , I tracked its dead body by npcscan @ (48,44) and I feel sad
Just few minutes ago, I tracked a live one, and I killed him @ (30,54) !
24 is a good number, whatever its spawn time is 6 hours? 8 hours? 12 hours? 24 is the common mulitple of them.
Hope this helps :)
Just Tamed Krush today on Drenden Server at 1:30pm server time. Story goes like this had seen him 5 times previously 4 times was mid-tame when opposite faction came and killed him gave me a quick rude salute and off they went. The times he spawned were 10:30am at the Glimmering pillar, then 9:30pm at spot where shango pats, third and fourth times were at 9:30pm at glimmering pillar in my time camping for him this was the place he most spawned for me and other hunters that had seen him dead.
Today when taming he had spawned at the spot where the wasps are near pack of white and the one black gorilla, tried taming him failed as he did his knockback move after I hit my taming macro and killed me. Ran back tamed a wasp sent it in and when he feared it the macro failed and he killed me again. He patted all the way on the other side of the pillar and over by the 2 gorilla spot where Loque spawns tamed a Gorilla sent him in he feared the gorilla I made sure I was close to krush hit the taming macro and 15 seconds later he was mine. All of the posts here I could not have done this without all of your help he is by far the toughest tame in the game but once you get him it is all worth it. The macros are indispensible you would need to have pretty nimble fingers to achieve what the macros above do for you.
You will not be able to do this tame without a minimum of 1.3K haste and 23K health the higher the haste rating the less health you need I suspect mine was almost 1.4K and I used a combo of Beastial wrath and my Titan-Forged Rune of Accuracy to help with fear. Good luck to all hunters trying to tame him it is a tough road but the end is sweet! This was a solo tame.
i tracked him dead at 23.40pm (56 82 coords), after 7 hours exactly he spawned in front of me at 50 44

I am so !@#$ed off right now. I have been looking for Krush for months. I was starting to think he was a myth on my server (Thorium Brotherhood).
Finally, tonight, around 5:50am, he spawned. I was ecstatic, my heart was racing. I was set with my buff food and my bw/abandon pet macro. I charged in to tame him, hardly able to sit still in my chair!
Well he managed to fear me a lot anyway. And knock me back. I chased him around, feigned death a lot, even died 3 times. A Draenei hunter flew down and started to kill him and I spammed /beg at her to let me have him. She relented and I nearly cried from happiness.
Started to tame him again when the guards at Nessingwary Base Camp were
to freaking kill him halfway through my tame.
I am so angry right now. They should not make those guards attack mobs like that, or if they want the "game to feel more real and have the NPCs interact with the enviornment", howabout not make a freaking incredibly rare mob pat right by a town? Ugh!
Found, and Killed him just now. 6:35 PM PDT, on Antonidas. He was the last one i needed for Frostbitten. found him by the bones at 27, 71
He does hit for a lot, and alot of Fear.
Probably the hardest pet I've ever tamed and hardest to find. Read alot of tips and tricks from the comments here and must admit they sure helped alot. Seeked him around 2 weeks and gave up, till a few days ago a guildie of mine spotted him. As Im survival atm, went to Orgrimmar fast as lightning and respeced to BM. Taming required help from 5 guildmates (well only one is required to have, a healer) and now I can proudly say that I'm owner of the one most epic looking pet in WoW at the moment.
Finally after about two months of camping I bagged this guy to complete my Frostbitten achievement at 8:35 on the dot around the glimmering pillar (48, 45).
anyone has seen him recently? ive been looking for him for 3 days but no sign :/
I killed KK for Frostbitten on my Pally a few days ago (Lothar server) and today was hunting for him to tame, but didn't have enough haste. I tried 5 times before a belf mage came and killed him but by that time it was obvious I was not ready to tame so i didn't even get angry. Not much I could do. More haste is necessary, obviously.
Just thought I would tell a brief story of my exploits this morning. I have been hunting Loque'nahak in Sholazar off and on for a long time. I got up this morning to fly around SB and went to the usual places and low and behold there was Loque. I landed, abandoned my pet, dropped a freezing trap, concussion blasted him and tamed him. Easy tame once you find him. For my fellow hunters who may be interested, he was at 51,81 in SB and I tamed him at 6:08 a.m. server time (Thunderhorn) May 19, 2010. So, on to look for Arcturus. But first let's take a quick look for King Krush. I have seen him 2 times in the last week with no luck in taming him. The first time he killed me and before I could get back to him, a horde came along and killed him. Last Sunday I got into an epic battle with him that lasted 1 hour and 15 minutes. A Priest friend of mine was with me for the last half hour trying to help with the fear and damage. In the end we ended up losing him to another hunter who tamed him. (That is another story.) Back to this morning. I head to The Glimmering Pillar. Holy Mackeral! there he is. So I stable Loque, go tame a Rhino and come back and he is still there. I eat Very Burnt Worg (+40 Haste & +40 Stamina), I send in the Rhino, cast Bestial Wrath, abandon pet, hit macro that lets me drink a Potion of Speed (+500 haste for 15 seconds) and cast Tame Pet. Close, but no cigar. I feign death and live. Then I go tame another Rhino. Rinse, repeat. I die this time cause another rhino attacks me along with King. I Run back...seems like forever. Eat, tame croc, look for KK. This time I have company. A horde hunter is floating around as well as a Pally. For what ever reason, they don't make a move on him. Maybe they took pity on me. I figure I have one more try, then off to work. This time the stars align and BAM! I tame him. I am left with less than 10% health. Man, what a rush. My heart was pounding. Tamed him at 6:30 a.m. server on the south side of The Glimmering Pillar. My advice, stack up on haste and stamina. Also, use a macro. I would not have been able to tame him without the advice in this thread. Thanks to all of the previous posters for your advice. Maybe I should go play the lottery.
Now we need to get Blizzard to add more space in the stables. I have Gondria, Loque'nahak, King Krush, a Grimtotem Spirit Guide and Humar. I'd like to have Arcturus and Skoll.
By far, the hardest rare spawn to find in the game.
Not only do you have a million hunters looking for him, but you've also got the rare spawn chasers trying to kill him. On top of that, the local NPC's will kill him if they spot him before you do. All those elements have the potential to see you chasing this guy for months like I did.
Best bet seems to be to choose one of the three spawn points and wait. That is how I finally got him. I sat and hovered near his northern spawn point. Next thing I knew, my NPC scanner was going nuts and I got him ... although only after many many months of looking.
Good luck in your search!
Well I thought I'd test out my macros before I actually re-attempt my tame with King Krush. My first attempt was blown to dashes when several folks started hovering above me, and one, a mage, "Thought I needed help" and obliterated Krush while I was trying to tame a trash pet and my husband was keeping Krush entertained.
So. I took this all in and worked on my macros to better streamline the process. What I noticed was that (maybe there always has been, may be new)
on use Haste Items/Enchants now have internal cooldowns
. The haste buffing I used:
Shard of the Crystal Heart
Accelerator Gloves - Engineering Enchant for Haste
When I was testing my macros out, I was confused how I was only seeing one of my haste buffs. So I decided to click one and then the other manually. You can't. There is a lapse of about 5-6 seconds. With time being so critical with Krush, this option doesn't seem viable. I don't see a realistic way to get around it. I'm assuming all haste on
items do this.
Thought I'd give a heads up in case someone was going to try this route as well - and also see if there was advice as an alternative to better increase haste.
I've switched out the glove's use for
This is due to the gloves and trinket NOT stacking.
I've not yet made my new attempt at King Krush.
I missed half my buffs when I went for my attempt. I logged on, and there he was sitting beneath me. I dropped barely with my food buff ( Imperial Baked Manta Ray) I managed to slap on a quick
Elixir of Lightning
Scroll of Fortitude
while I sent in my trash pet. It was all the time I had, as I was quickly looking to tag him before someone came along and nipped my chances in the bud. Tossing on a
, I waited for him to fear.
He feared. I popped my macros:
/cast Bestial Wrath
/use Shard of the Crystal Heart
/use Battlemaster's Vivacity
/use potion of speed
/cast Tame Beast
The Battlemaster trinket enables you to NOT need to stack/change your actual gear too much to favor stamina. In fact, this all went so smoothly, I'm actually a little in shock. Unfortunately I do not have the exact numbers to report the tame time it needed.
I recommend people going after King Krush to have:
Shard of the Crystal Heart
Elixir of Fortitude
Elixir of Lightning
Potion of Speed
Scroll of Fort /Stamina
Haste/Stamina food -- like Burnt Worg or Manta Ray.
It took me a week of patrolling Sholazar to find him. I spent my time farming ore(over 3,000 saronite/200 titanium and countless gems). On the sixth day, Loque’nahak spawned, so I tamed him for the time being. Today I decided to check before I took a break for lunch, and he happened to spawn as I flew by Skyreach Pillar, near the wasps nest at 2:30 PM server time. Three failed attempts trying on my own, the first attempt I had one second left to tame and he feared, the second and third he feard halfway through so I feigned. I /who Sholazar and found a priest in the area, I asked him if he'd help me and he agreed. If you can, find a priest for fear ward, it makes things so much more easier!(Cannot stress this enough)
Things I used;
1. Send in pet, hit BW, abandon pet.
2. Pop a Potion of Speed then start taming.
3. I also used; Elixir of Lightning Speed, Scroll of Stamina VIII, Elixir of Mighty Fortitude and Baked Manta Ray.
4. 24k hp & 37.14% haste; had around 3k hp after I tamed him.
So I'm a lock trying too get the kill on one of the 3 Basin rares for the achievement. I thought I'd post that I just was King Krush west of the Skyreach Pillar at 10:05 a.m. EST (7:05 a.m. server) on June 14th, 2010. Hope this helps with figuring out spawns.
Ok I solo tamed this one tonight on Galakrond with my level 77 hunter. I had tried 4 times previous to tame this guy and was amazed at how difficult it is to do. Tonight I decided to give it one last go. I did as all the previous posts suggested stamina gear , speed pots, food with haste buff, stamina scroll, macros. The only thing I decided to do differently was a small change in specc that allowed me to take Survivalist and Survival Instincts (the 10% stamina and 4% damage reduction were huge factors). This is by no means a specc to use for leveling or anything other than to tame this beasty. It took three tries but on the last attempt I tamed him with 4k health left ( with all the buffs I was starting at 21k). The damage was not a huge issue the only problem on the first 2 tries I would get feared in the last 1.5 seconds of the tame.
On the issue of spawn times I have hunted King for 6 days and he seems to spawn regularly between 6 and 7 hours apart and every time I saw him ( maybe 6 times in all) it was at the beginning of the hour. I was able to estimate the 2 hour window of possible spawn times and log in 10 minutes before and log out ten mins after it changed to the second hour. Granted there is some randomness as 2 of the times I logged in I did not see him at any of his spawn points.
In my previous tries the damage he would do would always kill me. The differences in this succesful try were some cheap greens "of stamina" the 2 talents from the survival tree and waiting until he feared my trash pet before hitting the macros. Good luck all I hope this helps in some way.
The name was given long before taming by my children Reptar is now my pet of choice.
WHY THE %^&* WONT YOU PUT MY SCREENSHOT UP THERE JESUS CHRIST I'VE BEEN SUBMITTING THEM FOR 6 WEEKS NOW
Got him about 6:00 AM server time. No priest to help me.
After several failed attempts.
This time I used my PVP gear for extra stamina.
Furious Gladiator Set
Titan-Forged Shoulders of Triumph
and a few more pieces. Maybe I'll edit this later.
/cast Tame Pet
Got Feared by
Runic Healing Injector
/cast Tame Pet again
closed my eyes
and then I got him.
I was expecting another Terrifying Roar to go off. I was lucky it didn't.
This guy could be a subtle reference to Donkey Kong Country, wherein the reptile enemies almost always had names that started with K.
Just managed to tame this bad boy with 3% hp left about 512 hp! was quaking!
Used all hastes and BW to get it done asap had it down to 12 sec cast, sent throwaway pet in and waited till he actually feared the oet first so it was on cooldown for him then dumped and tamed, just got it! woot! :)
i killed this guy at lvl 74, if i can take him down any lvl 80 can do it too
EASILY tameable with a priest with Fear Ward (Fear Ward + PW:S + HoT + Potion of Speed = guaranteed fast & easy tame).
Also the screenshot of the dead Krush is super depressing to see for hunters I'm sure :(
Ouch! thats all i can say. i was flying around looking for Loque to tame and came across this dude. i found him near nessingwary camp. i decided to try and tame him and boy did that suck.. killed me 2 times. went to camp repaired and got out pet to kill. it took 3 times to kill him. finally killed him and got the bag full of frostweave and got the ring and borean leather. hes a sweet looking pet if you can tame him. traps sure arent enough. he hurts! i got the acheivement also
I need to know what level of BM you need, I unlearned my tree twice, after reading that you need 5 points in it, then tried to tame one of em at Un Guro, nothing happened. I'd gladly spend tons of gold to redo my tree, just need to know what level of beast mastery I'm gonna need. thx in advance
Since I don't see a comment to this effect--
A discipline priest's Power Infusion WILL reduce the cast time of Tame Beast.
PI + haste potion + 405 passive haste rating from gear = 11.8s tame. Had a bubble up on me and managed to get him tamed easily without him fearing a second time. (The first fear went off while Bestial Wrath was still ticking, after he'd knocked me down.)
The lovely Njaalkeme and I are now off to get him leveled up to 80 and my gear back in a more serviceable state. :)
OK i see it spawned 6 hours after reset. I see pally killing it, pally sees me and partys me, a whole bunch of wasps come and interfere. kill em and KK kills me, so 3 seconds left he fears me and some lock kills him. needless to say that lock wont even interrupt my tame after wat i did.
This folks, is Yoshi on
Mannoroth, 6:24am EST
Just saw him at 27,44 -- between The Makers Perch and The Suntouched Pillar. He was walking NE (toward the big lake in the upper left of the map).
so after reading all this about king krush, i attempted to tame him on live. i killed aotona about 5:23 pm and read some spawn timers for the rares in the area. i read this story about one guy killing aotona and seeing king krush 12 hours later, so lo and behold, 12 hours later on the dot king krush spawns. too bad i was 2 mins late finding him and when i got there he was dead. i tried waiting 3 hours, then 6, and 12 again but nothing. it's been 23 hours since i've seen him and 2 days since i saw loque'nahak (already tamed).
is there no pattern to his respawn time? i've been out here so long and have seen not a single rare spawn.
edit: just found loque again exactly 24 hours after the king krush kill, flew over to frenzyheart hill and found aotona too within 4 mins of each other. so i know loque does not share spawn timer with the other 2 rares, but would that indicate krush and aotona may spawn every 6, 12, or 24 hours?
I was flying around helping my boyfriend find some seronite when someone on the general chat says that King Krush has spawned and if anyone wanted it. I quickly whispered them back that I wanted to tame it so they sent me a invite and quickly fly to that direction and npcscan goes off and BEHOLD its King Krush. I quickly land right next to him and I have Gondria as my pet..... WHO CARES I want King Krush! so I send Gondria to attack and I hit bestial wrath and abandon pet then tame........he feared me and it was a fail so I quickly feign death and he resets. I cant do this without a priest so I quickly call my boyfriend to bring his priest over. When he logs on he is in dalaran so i wait for him closely following the big dino. Finally my bf gets here and I ask him if he is ready and he gives me a thumbs up. I call stable pet and I take out my next pet Arcturis to fight and get aggro I hit bestial wrath then abandon pet and tame and my bf gives me fear ward and It works wonders. The tame is almost over and Im almost dead....before he can finish me off I finish the tame and I now have King Krush by my side. I thanked my bf and the person for letting me know that he spawned and the invite to help me find him. My bf whispered him so I could give him some money but they wouldn't take it so I just mailed them some money! XD
Was questing and found him. I saw two enemy faction paladins both level 80 going after him so I tagged him first and killed him, I felt a little bad since I know he is a desired hunter pet, but it was either me get the loot and a little EXP or let them take it.
He was south of that wasp area for the Frenzyheart starter quests.
20 Frostweave Cloth
The rare quality ring
And like 40k EXP
As I was doing my usual circles to find Loque'Nahak, all of a sudden I heard; "Let none survive!" and looked up to see Aotona.. just south of the Nessingwary camp. So I stabled my pet and tamed it. Not what I wanted but still a sweet pet nonetheless!
I heard it again, only to see King Krush this time D: I wanted to tame him but knew I couldn't handle him alone at level 76... So I killed him :( Got an achievement and a nice ring..
TO BE CONTINUED...
Did my research and got the macros and made a haste set. I was good to go, and began camping the Glimmering Pillar spawn point with Bejewelled on to keep me occupied. A guildie helped me by camping his other spawn point the first night. 2 hrs in my guildie says uh...Baiin, good news and bad. I seen him. But a BE dk just killed him and I'm now skinning him. *sigh*. Went to bed. The very next night chilled at my same spot and waited. At 530am server he spawns right below me. I prepare (eat haste food, pop an elixir) send the trash pet in, but his fear hits me too. And he charges me, hit the macro, pet is ditched, BW is up. LITERALLY 1 second of tame left and he fears me again. ARGH. Feign Death, start looking for something to tame to get BW back up, and out of nowhere a BE priest drops in and kills him. ><
I camped the same spot again tonight. A warlock who I've seen farming almost the whole time I've been camping the last 3 days stops and asks if I'm looking for Krush. "Yup. Hey if you happen to see him while your farming could you send me a whisper?". He says sure, wishes me luck and continues his route. At 320-ish am server he whispers me. "Dude he's right under me." Holy crap! He sends me an invite to party and I fly to the spawn point with the boneyard near Nessingways. Drop down, do the routine, he fears me and kills me. Ressurect. Kills me. Ressurect again. Kills me. ><
Tame one last pet (a cat) the lock keeping him busy the whole time so he doesn't pat too far away. Send in the cat and it was like clockwork. He only fears the cat, pop the macro tame and boom! Krush is mine! The lock ended up dying 3 times as well and mad respect to him for helping me out. Leprechonman you're the greatest! Haven't thought of a name yet, but I can say this much: it won't be "Yoshi" *shudder.
*Note> I officially hate Bloodelves. Best of luck all, you'll get him, keep working at it!
Baiin / Drauka (hunter)
Tamed at 6am 10/3/2010 on Uldaman server.
Decided to just stay up all night and camp. Did laps around to each of his paths with NPCScan running.
I was like some of you, didn't know if I believed the need for all the macros/haste trinkets/etc. He killed me 5 times and it wasn't even close. Whispered a priest in the zone who was kind enough to help. It even took us multiple attempts. He will charge party members, which cancels your tame. Heals were pulling threat so I opened up with all my shots til I got him down to about 25%. When he got on top of me, I hit Beastial Wrath, abandoned pet, then started the tame. He used fear when BW was up, it showed up Immune on my screen. After BW fell off, the priest popped Fear Ward on me and kept me healed up. Tame completed successfully on this attempt and the lovely priest refused payment. There may be a lot of jerks that play this game, but I was grateful for a nice, helpful person when I really needed it!
Tried to tame this one on my 80 Draenei hunter. Very hard to tame alone, I tried for about 15 minutes. Scared he would despawn, or the Blood Elf lock waiting/watching would kill him after I died, I just killed him...
He hits very hard, and he will fear you and knock you out of your Tame Beast. I suggest having a priest (fear ward) with you to help tame this one. He's a pain.
He is ALSO immune to polymorph, and and freezing effects. Tried the freezing trap, he just ran over it with ease saying immune. Mage in my group tried to Polymorph - immune, and tried to frost nova - immune.
Good luck with this piece of work! Lol. :)
a year ago i tried taming this fella. i failed. even with the buffs and potions, the king just managed to kill me after doing a lot of knockbacks and fears. awhile ago, i just came back for the patch 4.0.1... same equips as a year before. i was actually aiming for loque and managed to come across this guy.
i lol'd and had double thoughts of just killing him and thought, tame? why not. 'gotta catch em all' right? :))
i came in taming range, and just hit the tame beast button. well, he didn't do any skill at all. not much attacks too, as i managed to tame him with hp above 20k still with me.
maybe im just lucky but am sure glad i got a green devilsaur now ;)
edit: btw i found him around 29.63 trying to cross to nesingway basecamp.
Tamed this beast today(6:09 Burning Blade US) after only camping him for about 5 hours or so flying from all of his known spawn points. ended up finding him just before i was going to call it a day and i was at 10 secs left until i logged out and he spawned right under me.. just north of the Nesingwary Base Camp on the road.
With all the changes with hunters with this patch i was able to tame him without any trouble at all. 6 sec tame beast he never feared me and he barely touched my health because my armor is no longer 0 when taming.
anyone else still searching for him don't give it. it is totally worth the effort fr this green monster
Tamed today on my hunter on Kilrogg-US. Spawned at Glimmer at 12:45 pm server time. Unusual since everything I read said he spawns on 0's (12:00, 12:30, etc...). Anyways, I was doing laps for about 3 hours while watching football, and I would usually park it at Glimmer since this seems to be his most common spawn point. So after my 12:30 lap I parked him on his drake and turned back to the tv. At 12:45, npcscan goes off. Well, I turn thinking its just someones pet to mess with me, but there he is right below me!
The tame was simple really. My trash Rhino charged in, I hit my macro (see above posts for some good ones) which cast Bestial Wrath and then abandoned my pet. I then hit my second macro which drank a speed potion and started taming. With all the haste we hunters get now, the cast was less than 8 secs. He barely touched me.
Now...what to name my big green lizard?
I'm gutting this post. Previously, it featured a quick macro which included Roar of Sacrifice, the pet abandon script command, BW, and tame beast. The basic jist was that mashing it rapidly would give you the required immunity plus some crit protection to make the tame.
Not anymore. I just tamed King Krush, and I noticed a few rather surprising things. I confirmed these things in the combat log. The basic thing to note?
_Defensive CD's will not help you._
1. Bestial Wrath will not help you. He feared me _through_ Bestial Wrath. Yes, I checked the combat log to see if BW faded before or after, and I have TBW. I even tested TBW in a duel after this. The Beast Within no longer provides CC immunity to the hunter when BW is activated. Just the pet.
2. Deterrence will not help you. We may keep our armor, but I'm pretty sure the tame process still strips you of your avoidance. I'm 100% sure that King Krush was whacking me with physical attacks through Deterrence.
3. Roar of Sacrifice will hurt more than it helps. If your pet is gone when RoS is activated, _you_ take the extra 20% damage. Yes, that's right. I saw it both in the floating numbers in combat and in the combat log. So you might avoid crits, but you'll be eating more extra damage than you prevented.
4. (I tested this one before the tame) Pet Intervene will not function if the pet is not present. The buff will stay on you as you get whacked, but nothing will be blocked.
So it's back to basics. Grab a priest for Fear Ward. Stack your stamina and haste. Keep a heal potion on hand to use after your first failed tame beast. Open with mega (not lethal, obviously) damage to build aggro if you're going to need external healing.
I got him last night at around 1230am! I was doing laundry and I happened to come back to my desk just in time for him to spawn just west of the Glimmering Pillar. I flew down and popped my speed potion, my trinket, and thought I hit Bloodlust too but it didn’t go off. Luckly after dismissing my corehound, Krush charged me but I manged to start my tame right after. Took about 5 seconds but man was I afraid he was going to fear me. Just when I thought he was about to, he shrinks down and defends his new master against an angry mammoth. I’ve been waiting for over a year to tame this big guy and it was well worth it. :)
So, at 7:24pm server time I saw King Krush killed near the makers perch.
I quin box and so does my brother, so between us I had access to 10 characters so I thought I'd do full stake out.
I downloaded npcscan and parked at least two characters at each spawn location, one at both ends of each locations patrol path. I had three parked along the path of the life warden and three around the skyreach pillar. I turned my speakers up and started a movie marathon to help the time pass by.
17 hours and 7 movies later, nothing.
Nothing at all.
This guy can have a
On the upside though, I did manage to catch Aotona during all this.
Edit: Well after all this I couldn't just give up, he eventually spawned after
17 hours 43 minutes
at 29, 65.
Found him at (59,81) right on the cliff.. i was searching the basin for loque'nahak and found him. I landed and started taming him.. didnt get feared and barely got hurt.. sometimes i guess you just get lucky. 2am on Spirestone
Hi all, I tamed Krush on Nesingwary on 10/19/2010 at 5:50 PM server time. I was flying east below Skyreach Pillar and npcscan went off. I located him on the east side. I dismounted, set a trap and started taming. He came at me, feared me, and proceeded to stomp the life out of me. I feigned death and waited for tame to come off cool down. He continued walking west. I mounted up and flew over him to the west side of the pillar and landed. I set my trap again and when he got within ranged I hit tame. He came at me again but this time he didn't fear me and I successfully tamed him.
A couple of things...I tried many of the tricks recommended above....however I found that bestial wrath and trapping does not work. He WILL fear you and he WILL walk right through your trap, so don't even bother.
Here's my suggestion for anyone trying to tame him. I think that his fear spell has a cooldown and he can only do it every so often, that's why he didn't fear me the second time I attempted taming him. So...if you find him, attempt to tame him...if he fears you...feign death and wait for tame to come off cooldown....immediately tame him again and he shouldn't fear you. Alternately, you could just send in a trash pet, wait for Krush to fear it, dismiss the trash pet, and then start taming. He didn't hit as hard as I thought he would and he didn't bring my health down much at all. I don't have a very high gearscore, 5146, and my health is around 27000. My hunter's name is Ulf on the Nesingwary server.
I named him Envy...as in "green with envy" :)
Good luck and happy hunting!
Looking for Loque in sholazar and I just came across krush, I dropped onto his lap off the flying mount and started to tame and got feared after a few seconds, feigned death and commenced retaming, it tamed before fear went off again and voila Mosh has been upgraded to Krush on my hunter.
Centrius of Outland-EU
Just tamed King Krush, 10.20PM (PST) Boulderfist US server. Spawned at 51.0, 43.4 (Glimmering Pillar). Here are my two cents:
: I'd found King Krush's corpse last night (28 Oct. 2010) at 9PM server. Had read on Petopia forums that he seems to have an 8.5 hour spawn timer. I then calculated his spawn time for tonight, when I'd be able to log on (10.30PM).
Don't know if I just got lucky, but he appeared precisely 10 minutes prior to my estimated spawn time. This also follows with the post by Phyra, on page 1 of thread (
: Per advice of others on this board, I sent in my trash Devilsaur, let him get feared, then abandoned. Tame went off without a hitch.
Thanks, and good luck!
anyone try using a core hound for a free lust yet?
i found it easy to just get a core hound just for king krush so u can just adandon him after the lust and get feared.
then just start taming so u dont waste the fear timer cuz dismissing pet takes time too
Found him just south of skyreach pillar 12:15 AM tonight (alonsus eu). I was actually expecting the tame to be a lot more difficult after all i'd read.
My taming tactic was to take an elixir of lightning speed (45 haste) and a potion of speed and start taming... about 2 seconds into the tame I got feared. As soon as fear broke I began to tame again and my tame beast spell completed before he feared again. So in other words there is nothing fancy required.
I'm very suprised by people saying he took them to low health. I don't think he even took me below 80% and I didn't bother with fortitude pots or anything like that.
tamed him :) 06:13 server time at 49:44
I just watched him spawn (he scared the hell out of me, he literally spawned right on top of me) at 7:40PM on SWC and tamed him a few minutes later. I was actually after Loque, and figured why not? He feared me once, I recomposed myself and tried again, and he didn't fear me again, so the tame went off without a hitch.
What is his spawn timer, was trying to help my wife get him and alliance came and killed him right as she started here tame, wondering how long until we see him again.
Today I was looking for Loque'nahak to tame at Sholazar Basin. And as I was spamming the macro..... poof! King Krush suddenly appeared on my screen. My heart started to beat so freaking fast! :D So I got off my mount, started to tame him, I got feared ( I guessed "great job now Iam about to die" :P ). I didn't wanted to give up so I tried to tame him again. And with any complications and about 40% hp left after taming him I got relieved. I didn't need any traps or buffs or whatever I saw here other ppl were writing about. Guess I was realy lucky this time :)
I tamed KK this evening on Daggerspine-US, at 5:17pm server. This tame is much easier now as compared to reading the stories from before the patch where he was "nerfed". I felt I even botched my tame attempt, I picked up a Corehound, I also had a haste elixir and potion, trinket and lifeblood too (additional haste). If I did it right, the tame cast would have been about 4-5 seconds, I practiced it before and it was around 5.5 seconds long. I was charged, and feared by KK, I disbanded my Corehound (forgot to use Ancient Hysteria) and all my short term haste buffs faded by the time I started my initial tame. I didn't even have to feign death for a reset, and because of my sloppy execution of this attempt he brought me down to about 50% life from 32k hp.
He was roaming at the south-southeastern edge of the Glimmering Pillar, his patrol area here is small it would seem as well. Through previous research on the subject, rumor has it he spawns on the 10s, and for him to be up for 7 minutes was true luck on my part, especially with 20 other people that were currently within the zone.
Lastly, while camping him, I patrolled, the Glimmering Pillar, the Northwest Ridge Point, and Loque'nak's northern point too, creating a triangle. I flew this pattern for nearly 3 weeks, with only a view of KK's corpse once till now. Its all about luck in the end, and to further add to the luck, I was debating very strongly as to wether I should even bother logging in today.....well I am glad I did, this guy is a treat.
I found King Krush by chance this night, but couldn't tame him.
I caught king krush the third day of being lvl 80 and i was in greens and blues very little heroic loot. ill tell you how i did it so you can do it 2
just stack haste its all you need.
i didnt use a priest fear ward or shammys bloodlust/heroism
didnt use any food for haste "but you should because every bit helps"
use reforge to turn crit and hit into haste "just untill you get him then turn it back"
stack lower lvl blue or green haste gems not epic gems
reason is they are cheap
now heres my story on how it went down
i was flying in to look for Aotona "found it as well as i was flying in NPCscan went off i flew over and got her. named her went to stable and put away a pet 'i always keep a empty spot just in case"
i got Loque'nahak the day before so all i needed was krush. i didnt think i would find them both bird and dino so soon together but i went to look anyway. first flew up the left side of the map then over to the spot over the frog dudes. and went to the last spot thinking no such luck. and npcscan went off saying you found king krush. my heart damn near jumped from my chest as ive never seen it before and on my last hunter i searched for weeks with no luck. so after i stopped freaking out i landed and poped my haste Cd "troll" and started tame. the sec he got near me i was feared but i hit tame again and my tame beast was a faster cast then his fear CD "sorry wish i had the numbers for you such as how much haste i had and how fast my tame beast was"
but i can tell you i was in really bad gear so you dont need to be a well geared hunter you can be a brand new 80 and grab this pet
if you want a fear ward or bloodlust its up to you im just saying its not as hard as you might think
side note i got him at 1 am "my time 4 am server time" the server being Ravenholdt
hope this helped you new 80s and good luck hunting
alot of what happened to me was dumb luck as i said i got Aotona Loqu and krush in 2 days my first week of being 80 but dont give up your search if you keep on it you will find them. caught the spirit bear as well the night before so i got 4 of the most rare pets in the game in 2-3 days "still looking for Skoll and Gondria"
the spirit bear by the was not easy to find i camped in the spot for close to 14 hours and it spawned at 4 am "my time 7 server"
Edit: just caught Skoll at 11pm "my time 2 am server" after camping for him for 3 days. stupid npcscan didnt go off cuz i was on a dk not hunter so it didnt pop up. but i thought it would go off so you should have seen the look on my face when i tabbed in to be looking face to face with him and no npcscan alarm going off. other then the shock of seeing him caught him without a glitch hunter was logged out a few feet away.
ohh and heres a good way to get pets lol. i use a friends account to camp the spawn point while i play my main account :) i got both Skoll and Arcturis like this so if you have 2 accounts or a family/friend willing to help camp a spot with their guy and go about your reg play time. doing this trick now with Gondria. wish me luck
Edit: got Gondria the night after Skoll so for the record i caught in this order
Loque'nahak. Arcturis. Aotona. King Krush. Skoll.Gondria in my first week of being 80
i hit 80 on Monday and its Saturday. im just very very lucky i guess.
good luck to anyone else after these pets all it takes to find them is luck and not giving up
Edit: just hit 85 and 5 mins later went to look for Ghostcrawler the spirit beast crab....found him and caught him
Found at 47, 42 whilst doing the dailys for the Oracles.
Goblin hunter + King Krush pet = instant lulz on the height differences.
mmm...will have to plan ahead and make sure the goblin skin colour matches.
I am camping him as I type this but I came up with a neat stratgey that will help A LOT!
1) GET A CORE HOUND TRASH PET
2) Camp King Krush (This will take the longest as a 8.5 Spawn Timer isnt fun to play with)
3) When you find him simply send your Trashie in, BEFORE HE GETS FEARED USE ANCIENT HYSTERIA, Bestial Wrath and its a cake walk. Lets hope this works with me :)
Happy hunting. Maybe I might get him :/
Edit: WOOT I GOT HIM (11/21/10) at 8:09 AM Server Time! He was at the bones I was making my last loop for Lunch and there was drums and cheering. I was shaking so bad I couldnt hit the tame button i'll submit pictures!
King Krush has some unique features when tamed:
When in Bestial Wrath; he has a darker red then a normal devilsaur.
He is approximately 5% Larger than normal devilsaurs.
He hits harder when tamed.
Dont give up! Hes an easy cake walk if you do it right! I was brought down to 70% HP stacked on haste (9 Sec. Cast Time) Happy Hunting!
WHAT A RUSH! My heart is still pounding & hands shaking. LOL! I have been hunting a few rare pets in the Basin area. Today decided to hunt. Started spamming my macro and after a few hours... I finally targeted King Krush! I couldn't believe how big he actually was in person. Well... I was nervous because there was an Alli hunter camping the area as well so I was worried she would see it too. I threw down my freeze trap & slowed him. BUT none of my freeze traps would work on him at all! I tried a few times. (Guess I didn't read enough comments or I would have seen that part) I had to feign death a few times and use healing potions as well to stay alive. Also, he will fear you. He almost killed me 3 times and then a rhino decided to help him lol. But after a few attempts and having to take a break to eat and heal I finally tamed him! He spawned at exactly 1am server time. Server was Maiev. Coordinates were somewhere around 46.9, 41.8 Bascially I had to let him pound on me and almost kill me to tame him. So.... bring lots of healing potions & bandages & be ready to feign death if you have to, to avoid dieing. He does interrupt the taming alot so may take a few tries. By the time I had him tamed he had me down to 10% health if not less. Good luck and don't give up! I was about to log off for the night and decided to stay on a little longer. Glad I did! :D
I've just tamed it while waiting for loque.
the story is I have found him and killed ( i didn't want it to tame at that time ) yesterday specifically at 14:42 server time on 65.74 coords.
today found him again server time 10:42 ! server time on the very same coords !
they just spawned at there.
so go do your calculations. it is really timed it seems
edit : I had tamed it very easily, first he fears me , then immediately start to tame him again, and woo it's mine. it is pretty easy to tame for a lvl 80.
I got realy lucky yesterday, i was leveling my alt char in Zul'Drak flying around and than boom i found Terror Spinner. I log on my hunter and tame him.
After that i went to Sholazar basin to camp my hunter for today's patch 4.0.3a
When i was there boom King Krush in front of me. i though damn this must be my lucky day two rare beast on the same day in 30min.
Taming King Krush wasn't easy i got feared like 7 times but keep trying.
I tame King Krush at The Glimmering Pillar (Patch 4.0.3) (after 10 days looking and camping)
Good luck and Happy Hunting!
Just tamed him at 61,82, 1:28pm on Burning Blade.
Just tamed him at 11:50 am server time on Gurubashi server.
I had logged off and was randomly looking aorund on here when I came to this. Decided to jump back on and have a look, only circled twice when I found him.
Switched specs, pulled my corehound, used BW, and Ancient Hysteria, abandoned pet, and tamed him in a very short amount of time, he had time to hit me once and miss me once.
Good luck people.
During my hunt for Loque'nahak the spirit beast, I found King Krush on the second day.
Just below the
Nesingwary Base Camp
walking towards the river.
As long as his in your sight, he's hard to miss, a big green blob walking around.
How did I tame?
Fortunately there was no one else nearby so it was fairly easy for me.
King Krush is immune to traps so I didn't bother and just started taming.
He feared me once and downed my hp below 50% (my max health is 22k) but I just pushed on taming and succeeded at around 10% hp.
To be honest I was lucky.
At that time I had no Npcscan and didn't even macro for him.
Being level 80 meant other mobs didn't get aggroed either.
To all hunters looking for him, best of luck!
Make sure you have
and keep going.
Level80 hunter, Argent Dawn.
Not that it matters anymore so now at the end of the expansion. I just tamed King Krush by having a throw away pet ready. Sent it in and stay far away until he fears and proceed to tame without him casting a fear during it.
Tamed at 2:55 AM server time on Malfurion today. Was looking for the spirit beasts, but Krush was just as good. Had to feign death a couple times because he was by all the wasps, but after 2-3 tries successfully tamed him. Thankfully didn't fear me once during that tame.
Good luck to those still looking for him :)
Got the kill at 19: 41PM just south of "the Maker´s Perch" i have been making his path for 3H, so it´s obvious he spawn at 19:40PM. It was the last on the "Frostbitten" list so i got the achiev aswell :)
Argent Dawn server EU
Just putting down my experiences this evening in Sholazar.
I had been looking for Krush for a couple of days, raiding being finished for the xpac, and having finally got over my trepidation of taming this monster (had a tame interrupted by a ret pally who killed it as I tamed).
While patrolling, I stumbled over Aotona and tamed her.
Within 2 hours (probably more like 90 minutes) I almost filled my pants when my scanner went off for Krush. I didn't expect to have a chance of seeing Krush for hours yet, but there he was.
Used my Ancient Hysteria/Bestial Wrath/Dismiss Pet macro, but was still feared after dismissal - so for those who have been wondering, the beast within buff no longer grants you immunity when that pet has been removed.
All ended well though, I got the lizard and can finally get out of Northrend and pick up some other Azeroth rares.
Good luck for all of those looking - there was a lot of traffic in the 'Basin but I still grabbed him - don't give up the hunt :).
Got lucky today. I had been camping Glimmering Pilar for 4 days now.. I logged in around 3:20pm server time on Sargeras to find a lvl 77 undead priest fighting Krush. I killed the priest quickly and just abandoned my throw away pet.. The priest had already set off Krush's fear.. So I just tamed away.. When the priest got back to his corpse he was pretty mad, and attacked me, so I sent Krush after him.. Let's just say the priest had a bad day..
It took me nine months to find this guy the first time to kill him for
. But now I want to tame him and name him Goldblum. I did a patrol to try to find him yesterday and he popped up on my Silver Dragon about 1pm, except he was dead. I tried to skin him, but his corpse didn't disappear afterwards, so that was weird. I decided to use this to tame him once and for all. I waited to see when his corpse would disappear, then counted back a half hour from them to figure time of death. So I set my clock for eight hours so I could come get him when he respawned because that seems to be the common respawn time. I got there 15 minutes early and started to patrol.
For eight and a half hours.
During that time I killed Loque for the umpteenth time, whose corpse also didn't disappear upon being skinned, and in fact stayed around for over an hour. I figured, if corpses aren't disappearing, then I'll definitely see him, even if somehow he spawns somewhere where I'm not,
someone manages to kill him all in the three to three and a half minutes it takes me to do a full circuit. But no, no sign of him. I figured that with Cataclysm just out the previous day, and it being the middle of the night, there would be no one around to compete with. And aside from one mining bot and the occasional guy (I can't speak for any alliance that might have been around since they don't show up in /who), I was right. But it still shouldn't have mattered since his corpse would have stuck around. But no, after eight and half hours, he still didn't show. I would have kept going longer, but Blizz decided it was a good time for a server restart. SIGH. Well at least now I know when the rest was again, so I guess I'll come back in six hours this time and have another look around.
EDIT: I did come back, but five minutes in, the servers crashed for a minute. And when they came back up, some people, myself included, found that they couldn't log in on certain characters. Of course, the toons I didn't care about were fine, but when I tried to log into my hunter, it would disconnect me. But I went back again today six hours after another server reset and circled for over three and half hours. 2:45 of that was nonstop. Of course, he never showed. I think there really isn't any rhyme or reason to him. He doesn't always spawn every six to eight hours, and definitely not at a set point after a reset.
Tamed last night on Scryers after a 4 day vigil culminating in a straight through 12 hr camp from 6 am to 6:15 pm when the big green spawned at his northern spawn point under a tree near the bees.
Deterrence kept me alive, I got feared about 3/4 into the tame, I hit tame again and was one enormous bite away from dying when the tame took. Pity you can't use BW without a pet or this would have been cheese.
I found him at 8:05 on Perenolde just as my mouse mosty quit working (bad battery). I freaked out but was able to sort of move it enough to click tame right before he feared me. It took a while to get oriented with the arrow keys but the cursor was still on tame so I clicked and got the last rare pet I wanted.
I have been in sholazar everyday for months searching. Found him SE of Skyreach pillar.
Named him 'Incredible'
I just tamed Loque - sorry didnt pick up the coordinates and based on another users comments about them spawning at about the same time I looked right away on King Krushes pat. Immediately found him within 1 minute at exactly 33. 35.
As an 85 hunter I simply hit the tame button, then got feared. Hit the tame button again and he was mine- easy peasy.
Oh and incase it matters, it was approx 8:40 PST @ Daggerspine
Have been reading the comments about how hard it is to find this rare. Have an odd little story.
The very first day I landed in SB, I began doing the Nessingwary quests. Most of these were fairly easy low levels for me, because I had leveled up doing other things before I got to SB. Turned around to run off and quest and right in front of me, so close I had to back up, was Loque. Tamed him on impulse. I didn't even know what he was. About an hour later, was farming the rhinos and right in front of me was KK. Again, I didn't know what he was, but I didn't kill him, I just ran the other way.
Since that day I've not seen either one of them, nor Aotona, and I spend a LOT of time there because it's one of my favorite zones to hang out in. I've been actively looking for KK, with NPC_scan and Overlay AND Silver Dragon. Nothing.
I know that eventually I'll find him, but I can identify with the frustration of other hunters who have been camping for a long time, or who find him only to lose him to achievement seekers or meanies. Oddly enough, I've obtained Skoll, Gondria, Arcturis and TLPD all by "accident", just turning around and there they were in front of me. Since then, looking for all of THOSE again, I've not seen any of them, except Skoll once.
Beginners luck? Beats me. I just know that while I've actively searched I've found nothing, while when I was just "there", they all appeared. *cue Twilight Zone music* O_o
Course I know this is all nonsense, I just thought it was interesting. :-P
Ok, so everyone who has look for this Dino and been really discouraged I'm here to say don't give up. I looked for this rare for what seemed like forever and I'm happy to say that this morning I finally tame him. I researched spawn times and asked a few other hunters on my server questions. Camped, flew the spawn points, and I finally just decided to leave my character at one spot while I leveled one of my other characters. While I was flying to the spot where I was going to camp and I came across Aotona at 5:45PM cords 52,73. I have heard that Krush might spawn 4 to 10 hours after taming her so I looked around a little and Left. I flew the spawn points again at 12:30AM and found Loque'nahak by the Sky Reach Pillar cords 51,82. I wasn't sure if the was a pattern I was seeing, so I head up to the Glimmering Pillar to camp it at around 1:00AM and than shut down. I got up a little before going to work at 6:10AM and there he was just walking at cords 46,41. At this point there was no need for Coffee due to my increased heart rate, so I tamed him and left for work with a wonderful, euphoric feeling. Hope this info helps! Good Luck!
Time Tamed: 2:56 am
Jan. 07, 2011
My Hunters Level: 84
I have a thing for rare pets so of course I had always been interested in King Krush, But when I was a lower level and found out about him from a pet website the fearing thing scared me! and i knew at that time I wasn't ready to get him. Well While I was searching for Loque'nahak, my NPC scan went off for King Krush! I was so excited because honestly I didn't think I would ever get the chance to find him, because hes rare and also because hes GREEN and almost that whole place is Green I mean hes HUGE n all but he just blended in bc I was still looking around after the npc scan went off thinking where is he? lol... I found him right near where all the wasps/ bugs were flying around. The Skyreach Pillar (on the map). He was walking around the hive area. on the side of it through some trees, GREEN TREES.... again GREEN Everywhere! Avoid the wasps they come in packs btw easy for my level but in case your a lower level! He did fear me twice and I didn't have any haste potions but I did use one healing pot just in case during a fear because he hits pretty hard, but after a min or so he was tamed! He shrank to Pet size and now he is all mine! I love his unique coloring compared to the others. I really hope this Helps with your search a Good Luck. Happy Hunting!
I found King Krush while I was camping for Loque'nahak. I was at loque's spawn point (71.2,71.5) and I walked to the river to fish for a little. On my way Krush spawned right in front of me. His spawn point was just north of the the Loque spawn point I was camping and is not listed on the map as a spawn point. Just thought this might help.
Okay, so my story.... I'm on Kul Tiras and around 9:50 PM server time I run into this guy on accident. I actually was looking for Loque'nahak.. When I saw him I almost had a heartattack! I quickly dismounted and cast my Bestial Wrath then abandoned my green Heman kitty from Felwood (Heck yeah, it's KING KRUSH" and ran in to tame him. I was LITERALLY only two seconds away from taming him when my BW expired and he feared me... Then I died. I quickly ran back to my corpse and bandaged myself and prepred for a second try.... But OUT OF NOWHERE some DK comes in and starts to kill him. I tell him (in caps, btw) my intentions to tame him.. However, he proceeds to finish KK off and then has the nerve to tell me to "QQ Harder" ..... I am one angry hunter right now.
Oh btw, I ran into King Krush just east of the Nesingwary Base Camp. Around (30.1, 57.3) I believe.
He was making his way north
I'll count myself lucky because my tame was about as easy as could be compared to what I've read.
Was leveing my hunter in Sholazar and was partway through 77 and preparing to leave. Decided to give Loque's spawns a few last checks and was spamming a macro to target Krush, Loq, and Aotona. Just west of the Suntouched Pillar Krush's name popped up, I'd heard he was hard but figured why not? Dismounted, cast BW, dismissed pet, pulled from a distance and started my tame. Haste rating was 4.37%, he hit me 3 times bringing me down to 65% health (i have almost 14k) and then he was mine. Easy as that.
Tamed on Earthen Ring US - about 2:35am server time. Thanks to Cabalus for the heads-up.
Hi there. Like many others here I found this big grean dino while on the search for Loque.
I had NPCScan up while sleeping, off goes the alarm, up I jump and find Krush being killed by a NE warrior. This was at 5:05am, right at the most south eastern part of his Patrol, west of the W in Wintergrasp.
The very next morning the same thing happens; I am woken by NPCScan to find Krush once again filling my screen, this time at the most northern point of his patrol, west of The Savage Thicket. I did a quick /who to see if there were any hunters in the area and none but me. So I figure why not give him a tame.
So I pop down a little way from him and tame one of the Rhinos. I then move within taming range. In goes the new pet...Krush feared him pretty quickly, me abandoning as soon as the fear was on the pet. He turned to me and Charged, knocking me back. I then cast tame and had no troubles.
On the whole a fast and trouble-free tame.
My stats were thus: Level 80 NE hunter. 28k hp, 9.5k armor (38% reduced damage), 15.7% haste. He took me down about 17k in the time it took to tame. I imagine for someone in questing greens would prob have a bit of trouble.
While this was not a pet I set out to tame, he is really growing on me. I called him DrGuacamole and he is now a guild celebrity! He is quite good to quest with too, hits nice and hard and is quite tough...but then he IS a massive great green dino...
Good luck to you, he is a great pet and worth the search!
Edit: My search buddy for Loque has spotted him twice more. The day after my tame, he was spotted at 36,31 @ 5:45am. Then again the same day 7 hours later, location 64, 77 @ 12:45pm.
still shaking but tamed, finally! Hellscream, 35,30 ... 12:35pm server time. sent in pet for fear, pet almost killed Krush before he even feared, had to abandon pet & go w/it, feared 3xs before remembered to take haste potion, was sooo excited i forgot about it. nearby priest guild mate also came by & helped at last min. good luck everyone, hope this helps anyone else that was camping w/me!
Sorry it has taken so long to post! Tamed this Awesome Beastie at 2:10srvr time at 57, 81 coords (just behind wasp den)....as lvl 85 BM/SV hunter tho, be careful to Not kill him I (I almost Did)....sent my pet at him, pet took Fear, dismissed pet, He Feared me anyway..lol...Hit my PvP medallion and finished Tame....It was one of the sloppiest Tames Ive done, but I've wanted Krush for a Long time and had about given up!
Good Luck to All! This Green Beast is Worth Working for!
I just found this guy twice while looking for Loque'Nahak.
Day 1: First time was at the Skyreach Pillar, 56.81 around 4AM.
Day 2: Second time was right below the Nesingwary Camp, 31.66, around 8AM.
Hopes this helps!
*EDIT* Added days as I found him 2 times spread over 2 days.
Just to add real quick, I found King Krush dead the other day and decided to check back periodically once 6 hours hit since I saw his corpse. At the 8 hour mark he was still nowhere to be found, however, when I came back from a dungeon at the 8.5 hour mark he was spawned up by the Glimmering Pillar. Just thought I would help anyone looking out for possible spawn patterns with saying that he most certainly spawned for me sometime within the 8-8.5 hour window. As for the tame, it went very smoothly at level 85 with the new, shorter cast Tame Beast, so I don't suppose anyone should have a problem with that if you're 80+. Good luck to anyone who is still on the hunt for him!
I've been looking for this guy for nearly 2 freaking weeks. Have seen him twice, both times barely missing him. First time his corpse was on the ground and vanished as I went to skin it, second time NPC scan went off just as a Horde tamed him. I'm getting *extremely* discouraged in ever finding him alive.
he just spawned for me at 9:44 pm Frostmane server time at (just south and to the right of nesingwary basecamp)
a pally kill him before i could get my other hunter friend to tame him :/
I tamed King Krush and Loque'nahak literally back to back. I was looking for Loque, saw Krush and decided to tame him. No sooner did I do that and go to fly off in the vain hope of finding Loque'nahak than he was there less than 30 seconds later across the river and I tamed him.
Both were in the south/east area of the Nessingwary camp and easy targets for anyone to grab/kill.
Not bad for having a crummy day. Getting both was a nice change.
Caught KK at 2 am on Silver Hand, directly west of the Savage Thicket. Used a trash pet to send in first, and after the pet was feared twice, dismissed it and started the tame. KK feared me twice (so using the pet to use it up doesn't always work!) and he does pack a wallop. My health was down a third by the time it was done; that hasn't happened with a pet for quite a while (am lvl 85.) It's a shame these guys have to shrink so much after they're tamed. It would have been neat for him to keep some of his size.
I had encountered KK months ago and ran from him, not knowing what he was. This is the first time I've seen him since then and I spend a lot of time in Sholazar and have camped him quite often for hours at a time. I was not looking for him at all this time, just farming some mammoth meat. Just looked up and there he was. This has happened with pretty much every rare beastie I've gotten. They appeared unexpectedly and so far, luckily, I've been prepared even when I've been startled.
He's very unique looking and has a couple of very cool abilities. I'm going to enjoy having him around I think.
just saw him "dead" on 2/9/11 at 4pm server time (akama) at 27.67
I just got robbed trying to tame this guy... by beefed up npcs...
I spotted him patting when I was looking for Loque south of nesingwary base camp around 7:13 server. Npc scan went off and I rushed to tame him. Targeted him, got in range- laid down my trap. Before I could even touch him his health jumped down to about 20%. Couldn't understand it for the life of me- didn't see any players around.
He died at my feet and I saw his attackers- two 85 nesingwary guards on a patrol route... so a note for all you hunters- if you're trying to catch him alive around the base camp you might be out of luck like I was :|
Just tamed at 20:01 PST on US-Laughing Skull. Just had a pet tank him until he feared, then dismissed pet and commenced with taming. Very cool pet, was trying to bring out Loque'Nahak but instead Krush showed up. Oh well : ). Good luck all with obtaining this beastly pet.
Was at Location 66.6, 78.7. I would kill 1 gorilla, scout the other spawn points, then return and wait for a spawn. Lucky for me I got him there, and 40 minutes later I tamed Loque'nahak at his Northern Location 16 hours after the last kill/tame following this same strategy.
Found him by the Skyreach pillar while flying through Sholozar mining on my DK (that's three rares I've found while on her now, think she could be a lucky charm O_o) and logged my hunter main. Finally had the opportunity to get rid of my rhino named Trashpet (heh) since I was doing the WotLK method of Bestial Wrath-ing and abandoning the trash pet to get fear immunity (I'd forgotten that BW got changed :/). Barely hit for anything on an 85, I was feared once at the start but the tame finished before he could get another one off. Named him Hevisaurus after the Finnish children's dinosaur metal band that I discovered since members of Sonata Arctica are in it and got a few /cheer emotes of recognition in town :p.
Just got King Krush at his spawn by skyreach pillar.
He spawned just as I was flying out of range of NPCscan triggering.
It was approx 8:52pm EST on Magtheridon US
after camping for months, days, and hours,..I got him. NPCScan scared the crap out of me, I wasn't expecting it at all,..dropped down,..and no matter how prepared you think you are,...lol...I sent in my trash pet, rhino was attacking me/him at the same time,..not sure if pet got feared,..small confined spot, plus the rhino in the picture and huge Krush,..it was a chaotic mess,..then i got feared,..lol,..I used my trinket,.feared again,..couldn't understand why I couldn't tame him,..then OH YEAH,..abandon pet,..lmao,..then tamed him with no more problems,..think I got feared 4 times,..lol,..it was chaotic big time,..but he is mine!
WOOT! OMG! finially!
Time-2:33 am server time
alright i got WAY lucky tonight, i was on my Pally farming Ore when a Ally rogue started as well, so i went outta my way and went to the middle where my npc scan goes off i found Aotona, i jumped on my hunter flew to the basin tamed her and then hearthed. i got back on my pally made a single loop and Suddenly i am again flamed by my npc scan this time King Krush. i log off my pally (i had been talking to this rogue ally telling him how he had made me fly to Aotona and thanks him for it when i freak out about KIng Krush) he stood guard as i flew back to Sholozar from SW. i get there and tame him, i knew nothing about King Krush so when he feared me i was a little surprised but seconds later he was tamed. the Rogue and i cheered all excited and im freaking in Guild chat. then we spot a horde hunter watching us... im thinking i stole his pet and he wasnt happy he logged right after. This whole event started at 4:00am server time i found Aotona, i dont know if King Krush spawned at the same time but i had him caught before 4:30 and had to flew to the basin twice from sw (with a port to Dal)
either way gl all and dont kill yourself just keep yourself at the spot and log off and on (worked for quite a few of my rares)
The forgotten Coast
Just like to say how i got this beauty of a pet:
tamed him at 18:20 near the coords 66.4, 78.6 and he gave me a bit of a shock coz i was looking for Loque'nahak but thx to a pally healing me i tamed him!
note: he immune to frost trap ana anything that can slow him down (ie Wing clip and Concussive shot)
I was lucky enough to get this darling after just 5 mins of searching ;) I was just in Sholazar looking for Loque and after 5 mins i found King Krush and tamed him! Lucky me :D
Tamed at 2:59pm on Exodar at Coords: 52, 40. just south of the Glimmering Pillar. Spent 3 hours last night, and 2 more so far today doing laps around the Basin for Loque'nahak, so when Npc Scan Popped with Krush, it was a welcomed treat!
Just tamed him at his southern spawn area. I had tamed him back when tame beast was a 20 second cast and all I can say is it is much simpler now. Back then, it was a pain if you didn't know how to go about it. I sent pet in, he got feared, abandoned, started taming, then got charged and lost taming, started taming again and completed with no problem. Maybe his fear ability has been reduced? Thought it used to be every 10 seconds. He does hit pretty hard, had 16k life at 77 and had maybe around 10%. Anyways happy to have him, rare skin, love em. Good luck fellow hunters.
I tamed this guy today. A guildie said he found his body shortly after the servers were online again around 12:30 server. Using the comments I estimated his respawn around 9 server. I got on early and decided to start patrolling anyways, spamming a target macro I made, and at 7:50 server I found him just south of Nesingwary on the other side of the river where those bones are on the hill. I immediately abandoned my pet and started taming him. He didn't fear me at all and it went smoothly besides a cheetah beating up on me during it. So when you estimate the respawn time definitely go earlier! It pays off ;)
Just tamed on US server- Nathrezim. March 16 at approx 5:00 pm server / local time. Pain in the butt, he feared me the first three times, last time i tried to see if i could do it without the bestial wrath buff from a trash pet and i got lucky, he tendon ripped or whatever instead of fearing. He was pathing back and forth at the southern base of Glimmering pillar. happy hunting! :)
P.S:I had been in the basin looking for Aotona just to test my luck and i decided.. why not? i'll check the pill- OH MY GOD IT'S YOSHI!
yada yada yada
With no pet and no pvp trinket, just poped berseking and hast trinket , just hoped that he dind´t fear or kock me down, and he´s mine now.
It´s nice to be in a server like veknilash (low pop) :P
For the love of god never... I repeat NEVER... try and tame him anywhere near Nesingwarys base camp. Being that the 'Nesingwary Game Warden's are 85 now, not 75 like they were... they one shot him whether you have control of him or not. I just got mine blown away for being just... barely inside their range. 2 more years of searching in my future I guess.
I just tamed him on my Hunter (Azjol-Nerub server) at 3:40am. I had been flying around Sholazar periodically for about 3 weeks, seen him killed in front of me 3 times, and was hoping to get him tonight before maintenance. I had been flying around Sholazar since 12:45am and I actually saw Loque'nahak and Aotona within 20 minutes. (helped another hunter tame them since I already have them and have no interest in the achievement Frostbitten) Then, after flying around for a few more hours, as I was passing the Wasp Nest in southeastern Sholazar, my SilverDragon addon went off and there was King Krush. I landed, shot an arrow at him just in case, used my Corehound's Ancient Hysteria, dismissed the Corehound, and started taming. After the first fear I had no problem taming him before the next one and now I'm the proud owner of Pancake the Devilsaur. (since he "Krushes" things as flat as pancakes) :D
Tamed him 2/27/11 at 5:24pm server (pst) on Wyrmrest Accord. Coordinates; 28/71
Just tamed him on Suramart server, 9 pm server time over near the birds and mammoths
wasnt looking for him but hes pretty bada$$ so i got him, landed taged him and tamed him, he never feared me =)
Tamed on Crushridge at 17:38 approx. Like more the looks of the Ironhide Devilsaur, but it's a good implement to the collection nonetheless ^^
EDIT: found it near Pitch's spawn point, got feared once so on the 2nd taming try I used a speed pot
Tamed at Grim Batol @ 4:15 AM Server Time, very funny was just helping friend get loque and he spawned just in front of me.
Near the mountains, West Sholazar.
I had no idea that this devilsaur was such a hotly desired pet, nor so hard to find. I found him completely by accident this morning, before 6am server time on Blackwater Raiders. I used the engineering Northrend teleport device which drops you at a high point on Skyreach Pillar. I flew down for a nearby Saronite node before I would head on to the Oracles for my next egg (which NEVER hatches a proto drake, thankyouverymuch), and after mining I looked up and there he was - King Krush.
Looking at the map provided here, I should note that Krush must patrol a little more north of Skyreach Pillar, as I was effectively making a bee-line from Skyreach to the oracles camp. Looking at pins on the map doesn't show this, so for others looking for Krush I would recommend circling Skyreach to be certain.
I had no idea either that he was such a pain to tame. I did see right away that a Freezing Trap didn't work, and then he feared me. Great. I'd tame, he'd fear me. Tried one last time and just waited til his fear on me ended, then popped Tame again, regardless of my facing. I spun around and finished the tame likely just as his fear was ready to go again.
I used no pots and I don't have the best gear nor a lot of haste. He did munch on my pretty good in that time, though, got me to about half health.
Hope this helps some hunters looking to tame.
k so this whole week i've been looking for King Krush and i've had no luck, i've not even seen a corpse. then today i was told by another player that he only respawns once a week, this is something i've never read but i would like to hear from the community. my other question is does he have a certain direction in which he pats around? like clockwise or counter? any responses would be appreciated and especially those that have links that will confirm what is said.
Well now i saw his corpse and i think week ago same..2 horde players killed him.. FFS ppl why are u dooing that for ^&*!ing stupid achi!
i want to tame him 2 but only what i can c is corpses...:(((( but i dont think his spawn time are once a week..they are lying so u dont look 4 him...
example lets say all rare elites are once a week spawned.. i tamed gondria one night tomorrow saw again.. so my opinion is that hes spawn time isnt once a week but maybe once in 2-3 days... well thats much to..so dont go on kamping 4 him./... i was kamping for loque for 3 weeks all day... nothing give up comt leveling and when i get 85lvl i go once a day or twice just to look.. and that tok me 2 months..and i accedently find lowue and tame..so ifs all about luck :)
believe me if u accedently find him yll be mor saticfied then if u kamped all days and nights :)
Just helped a Hunter tame this guy on Earthen Ring 3pm server time. I am still in search for Loque :(
Just tamed this bad boy...6:15AM on Alexstrasza. I now have all of the Sholazar 3. Named him Reptar.
When you need to tame a boss where there are npc's helping you to attack that boss you want to tame, or a similar situation would be taming Terrorpene, or any boss that is untrappable, use "scare beast" and in Terrorpene's case, he runs around in circles and when u use tame while he is under that spell, he becomes tamed in a very short time, not even 5 seconds it took me. Same for a boss spider that my own npc's were helping me kill, I used "scare beast, then "tame" and she was almost instantly tamed.
tamed on korgath east of skyreach pillar at about 6:20pm et. Been looking for him and loque for a few days ago. Still no site of loque but krush is a great addition. was tough because of the fears but there was a long enough break for me to get him luckily
Tamed today 21 April 2011 at 12:35 P:M Server time on Muradin cords 52.34, 44.20, on his path near the Glimmering Pillar.
I tamed him at 11 o'clock : ))) server burning legion : PP
Tamed King Krush today on Illidan between 11 pm - 12 am today on the east side of Sholazar Basin next to the Maker's Terrace. Been searching Sholazar ever since friggin LK and never could find him. All I can say is, even if you're not using NPC Scan or /target King Krush this dude is HUGE and you cannot miss him.
As I am 85, I dropped down as fast as I could and tamed him. All the 10 seconds went by and not a single fear was dropped on me. Either I was lucky and was immune or he just never spit one out at me, I got him clean in 10 seconds (or whatever the duration of Tame Beast is).
Good luck to you all!
Sharpieo Goblin Hunter
Illidan <Feng Shui>
If you talk about killing him. Its not a problem at all. Did it with a 76 Rogue today, and i almost didnt loose any health. Pop'd Evasion and Adrenaline Rush, and he was down within few seconds.
I really want to add one thing: If you see King Krush, do a shoutout in general chat and hear if any BM hunters really need it. A guy helped me to tame it, and im eternally grateful to him :)
I tamed him at exactly 61.5 82.7, and it was a pretty easy tame, he took me down to 90% HP.
Level 77 Hunter @ Kazzak EU
Tamed at 14:37
EDIT: Killed him today again. At 53.2 83.5.
Got him in few min's. Well not on perpus i was after Loque'nahak i left my hunter at Nesingwary Base Can when i logged my npc scan gone crazy i spoted him and tamed peace of cake :)))
Just tamed him at 2:01 am on Uther-US server around the skyreach pillar.
just tamed him at 50,43.
How about at lvl 85 hunters get 10 more slots?
I too enjoy seeking the rare and unique pets of Azeroth. In fact, that's why I came to the boards right now. So I'm doing my usual sweep through Sholazar, I deleted cache before starting the game. I come up on one of the spots that overlaps Loque & Krush, then start camping.
I'm fairly high up looking down, when I see something out of place. I go down to see, and it's Loque!
No NPC alert?
My NPC scan has never failed before, now I'm nervous.
Anyway, finally bagged him after about two months. Got the spirit bear last week (on quick flyby-no camp), Skoll is next.
Had to come back here and report... no need for me to be nervous about my NPC Scan, it works just fine. And my apologies, Skoll wasn't next.
When I tamed Loque, I hearthed out to show him off. I forgot my Oracle egg, so I went back. There are two rares left for me to bag in Sholazar, so I made another lap around for grins.
Boom goes the dynamite...
So to summarize, *hand on Bible*:
Server time... 5:00am (+/- 10 min)
I was hovering where Loque overlaps Krush (NPC Overlay-highly recommended), had been there less than 10 minutes, saw something out of place on the ground, went down to see and was shocked, tamed
using freeze trap ez-pezi, my NPC Scan did NOT give an alert.
Server time... 7:00am (+/- 10 min)
ON THE SAME DAY!
On my first lap around (no camping), NPC Scan hits, felt bold so tamed
the old fashioned way... just stand there and take it, ez-pezi.
I started putting in "serious" time camping both these coveted hunter pets about two months ago. Actually I would camp the overlap spots probably no more than 30 minutes at a time, then make a couple laps around. I tried to login every day to do this routine, and only missed a few days.
In these last 8 weeks I've never seen Loque. I've seen Krush only once, as another player was taming him. I felt lucky just to witness
, especially after reading many tales of camping hell in these forums.
So now I feel luckier than <insert clean joke here>
While getting my Oracle egg, picked up the dailies. On the way back to turn in the quests, NPC Scan dinged for
. Started taming old fashioned way, but didn't know about the knock-back. So I froze it, then tamed ez-pezi.
To summarize again:
Tamed Loque, Krush, and Aotona
within 4 hours, on the same day!
Just killed this guy on my 65 blood death knight who was looking for Saronite, was a very tough fight for a player 10 levels below, had to blow all my cooldowns, but got him with 400 hp left (Death Strikes kept missing or getting parried).
Asked in general and whispered a few hunters I saw online first, but noone seemed interested, so I wacked him myself. Dropped a caster-ring and satchel.
Tamed him at 12:01AM EST as a level 85. Got Knocked back and started taming right after the knockback
Have this guy on both of my hunters, because I just happen upon him while searching for Loque :) Once in the SE corner, then in the NW close to Shango... months apart though.
Finally got my green devilsaur today. I've been camping him on and off for a while now and kinda gave up. And tonight, while I was testing the oil stained wolf tame macro, I said what the hell, I'll go to Basin since its close to see if Krush was there. I flew to the bottom spawn zone and nothing. I flew to the middle zone (47.48) and spammed the macro to find him. My target box focused on King Krush and I got whispers. I read about the fear so I went in to tame with beastial wrath. But he got me with the fear after my BW expired. I immediately retamed and this time it worked, as his internal fear cooldown was up.
Tamed him at 7:59 am on "Die ewige Wacht" (EU).
Was looking fo Loq, wasn't there. So I rewrote my macro, thought "A heck I'll look after King Krush" and then he just walked into view-range right where I was hovering, at the foot of the glimmering pillar (I guess that's the best spot to find him, cause all the others on the edge of the zone are too frequently visited by ore-farmers who might stumble over him and kill/tame him asap)
Rare? hahah ok. I've seen King krush three times in a matter of 5 days. First time, i had no idea how to tame him and i was only level 76. Second time (yesterday) I spammed my usual "ill pay you 10k to let me tame loque'nahak if you come across him" macro. A hunter whispers me and says she is following king krush and asked if i want him. I said I didn't know how to tame him, so she pulled out a core hound, i got the buff, tamed him before he was able to fear me. Love the pet. Named him max. Gave me hope that there are still good people in the world. Anyways, today (bout 10 minutes ago) I am looking for loque'nahak and who do I find? You guessed it, the king of kings. There was not a hunter in /who and nobody in my guild was online with a hunter, so i waited about 5 minutes, and since he was still up I killed him.
*** TO TAME THIS BEAST, GET A CORE HOUND, GET YER HASTE BLOODLUST TYPE BUFF, AND TAME HIM ****
Its not that hard. Anyways here are spawn times.
Friday (11pm server)
**( at 11am the next day loque was up)**
Monday (9pm server)
Tuesday (11am server)
Killed for the Frostbitten achievement today at 5:58 AM server time at (50,81)!
I got my by the path of life warding with npcscan.He was near the blue light were shango is.Got him on a sunday at 9:15 PM On easter day.
Tamed him at about 9:50PM on Skullcrusher US
I have two exotic beasts: loquenahak and king krush. For PvP, i just find Krush so much more enjoyable on a PvP basis.
Now, I had gone in thinking loquenahak would be much better, but I guess I just like this big, green killing machine chasing 'em down.
On a raid basis...the exotic ability to help raids out is a nice feature.
Couldn't sleep, so at 7am I decided to catch loque, but decided to find Krush, so I went to check here for Krush, and boom, npc_scan went off as I look at the page.
Moral of the story, wake up at retarded hours to catch rare spawns, because luck increases exponentially to two things.
1) the crazy hour you're up at (i'm never up at 7am)
2) how much you want to catch something else (i was aiming for loque)
Life works that way. Now... if I attempt to catch Ragnaros, would I catch Malorne?
For people under level 80 I recommend sending in your pet first and let him take the fear, then dissmiss pet and start taming.
I was mining last night and this devilsaur spawned right in front of me I couldn't dismiss my pet fast enough lol but I was able to tame him =) If you were wondering where is spawned for me not far from Shango. Best of luck to any hunter's trying to get him.
I had tamed King Krush and Loque'nahak at the same location - 59.0/83.0... I had been trying for these two rares for the past 3days; finally I was able to tame them both at the same time...I guess the WoW gods blessed me that day. Keep searching for them! They'll show up sooner or later!
for a gigantic rare he is really hard to find... I've seen him twice: Once before my hunter even existed and again right after maintenence several months later, and that was when I got him...
Just tamed him at 4:56 p.m server time on Bloodhoof. Pretty easy tame at 85 considering I had my pet out who almost killed him.... But other than that it was very easy he feared my pet I dissmissed him and tamed King Krush not to hard had no buffs and was Beast Mastery spec still on the search for the parrot guy (forgot his name) and Loque.... My buddy tamed all 3 at about 10 this morning right around there that being said the timer was about 6 hours.... Good luck and happy hunting to all you hunters out there!
Edit: Btw i just thought I would head over considering itd been 6 hours and he scared me I gasped :).
I have been after him for a little while now.
Spending my down time between dungeons, etc. parked in Sholz, looking for him and Loque periodically.
I found Loque this morning at around 9am server, took a break in Zul'Drak and found Terror Spinner at around 10am server.
I've been cruising around Sholz since - alternating between camping one spot, and doing laps while mining. He's the last rare I need for Frostbitten :( And I have never once seen him in my life.
Is anyone aware of a definite spawn location? Or does it vary between the locations marked out?
Okay so i started playing my hunter again on July 4th and said to myself i want the King Krush, so i looked at spawn points after and put in the Npc ID for Krush,Aotona, and Loque and 10 minutes later at 3:20 game time I had found my King Krush i easily soloed him on my 85 hunter 130k health found right at the bottom of The skyreach Pillar his NPC ID is "32485" I found him fast but most times than not you wont find him that fast I suggest Npc scan off of Curse.com and put in the NPC ID(32485), name (King Krush) and place (Northrend) and to put in the NPC ID's of Aotona and Loque so you have a chance at all 3 while you farm! Goodluck and Don't over farm yourself!
After about 133 days (That's what my Silver Dragon addon says) of finding him on my level 85 Draenei hunter, I decided to go after him on my level 77 Nelf hunter. I was looking for
, and I came across King Krush under the Glimmering Pillar at about 10:05 (8:05 Server time) I sent my pet rhino I had tamed before n, seeing if King Krush would fear him, but he didn't. I quickly dismissed my rhino, used
. Making my tame a five second cast. King Krush didn't fear at all, and hit pretty lightly. I had also stacked a bit of stamina, and used some
, so I had almost 18000 health.. 17333 to be exact.

Faction: Obviously Alliance
Realm: Blackwater Raiders
Bagged him today at on Emerald Dream EU at around 05:00 Paris time.
Was after Loque too and then had a little venture out into the middle of Sholzar (the northern most rock pillar) and BOOM!
Taming was easy, got feared once.
i try catch him in last 2 weeks...
I come to Scholazar Basin at 1:00am 5:00am, 7:00am, 04:00pm, 7:00pm, 11:00pm and nothing... 2 weeks and no respawn... when i check /who scholazar i am alone there... but King don`t respawn...
Just tammed him -
7:38 server time @ 36, 30
- I´m at Illidan / US
Looking for Loque now.
Stormrage @ 6:35pm server/est time. Under the northmost spawn point (Glimmering pillar)
Completed the final 2 I needed Frostbitten (King Krush) 6:35pm and Bloody Rare (Vorakem Doomspeaker) 6:30pm within 5 minutes of each other :D:D:D:D:D:D.
Just Killed Him. Im at Illidan / 28,44 @11:08 server time.
Taming of King Krush:
Realm: Blackwater Raiders
Location: 33, 34
Had him at 64.83 at 3.40 am european server time (Bronze Dragonflight),was expecting him to fear me or be hard to tame but nothing happened apart from him resisting ice trap.Lovely pet :D
I FINALLY TAMED HIM TODAY!
7:10 PM Drak'Thul
I just wanted to say, I camped him specifically to kill him. and when I found him tonight I had to resist the urge to announce in general that he was about to die, since I know there was a hunter there camping a different spawn area.That is going to be one sad little hunter when he makes his rounds. Oh Well! I'm off to camp King Ping. Sorry little hunter. sorry! except, not really. One more for frostbitten!
Krysîs of Lethon, Holy Priest
Cruising around the Loque spawn points this morning found me a bit south of Nestingwary's camp. King Krush and Shango spawned right next to each other, right in front of me.
Coords are correct in the messages above this one. I already had Shango tamed so I flew over the both of them to clear Shango, landed and sent the tiger in to attack KK. Once he had aggro I dismissed him and tamed KK. I took about 2k of damage because traps don't work on Godzilla... Bang-zoom I have a big green lizard for a pet.
This tame is as easy as cake for an 80 hunter so don't hesitate. You can do it.
Now to get Loque' Nahak... <sigh>
I saw him patrolling around 33,35 on the Moon Guard server at some 2am in the morning. Being level 85 it was a pretty easy attention grab and tame. :)
Good luck and happy hunting!
today, while camping Loque this guy spawned for me 2 times in about 3-6 hours @ the gorllia spot.
I got this guy by chance. I was doing my normal fly by route for Loque'nahak and by the Wasps and Gorillas NPCScan went off. I landed and started to tame. This guy used fear on me twice but other then that it was an easy catch. This was the second time i found him, first time i was around level 77 and he kept on killing me. My advice don't wait around for ages trying to find him. Come back every few hours or so do a fly by and leave it. That way you don't get stressed out by it. Also go when there is less people on your sever, either early morning or late night as i believe you will most likely find it.
Co-ods -64 -79
7.09am Saurfang Server t ime
killed King Krush at 2:12AM PST on Sen'jin server
so, i arrived in sholazar for loque nahak, but 1 min. later, npcscan went off telling me about krush. tamed him, and got fear twice at the last second of taming. tamed, and its really cool
Got Krush today. Was the third day i logged on and flew over his travel paths and when i was on the western ridge NPC Scan went off like a charm. I read all the tactics to get him - going there at lvl 80 or using a core hound + bestial wrath to avoid the fears, etc. I have to tell you i'm lazy, so i didn't want to do all that. I (lvl 76) just dismissed my pet and began to tame him... well it didn't work on the first try as he feared me (had to feign) ... so i came back after regaining my health and well, i had to repeat that process a couple more times. Probably on the 4th try he didn't fear and I was able to tame him. Not the most elegant, but meh - it worked. And that's all that counts :D
Good luck getting him!
Kalecgos Central local/Server PST
9:30 p.m (local) - 7:30 p.m. (server)= King Krush was up in the mid part of map. To start off with I was lvl 74 at 90%. I had to spam kill everything in sight. Got to 75 within a couple of minutes and began the taming. First few attempts failed and then the worse happend. Lvl 77 paly zooms down as I am running back to my body and I notice he begins to obliverate KK. It catches me off gaurd so my typing was a bit hesitant. He kills him right in front of me :(
11:30 p.m. (Local) - 9:30 (server) = Snagged Gondria. I had to do the Apm Theater, run a few dungeons, and turn in some quest to get Lvl 77 ( I was at 75) to be able to tame her. Very easy tame.
1:01 a.m. (local) - 11:01 (server) = Picked up Arcturis. Flew my paladin over from Shol Bas to Grizzly Hills to see if he was there. Like all post have said he was on the slope of the hill. Logged over to my hunter and flew him from River's Heart to Amberpine Lodge ( Once again was hoping for the best) and tamed him with ease. The top of the hour thing was once more proven tonight. Great advice and post to those who shared and confirmed that information. Thanks.
2:30 a.m. (local) - 12:30 (server) King Krush spawned nearly 5 hours later around 2:30 ish and I tamed him by sending in a pet and letting him get feard, dismissed it, and then tame. I've read of an 8 to 8.5 hour respawn. Guess I got lucky. Not bad for one night of rare pet farming. It's been fun!
Found him roaming the basin at 46, 41
Spawned near the glimmering pillar, where fortunately I was questing at the moment, tried to arcane blast the hell out of him (As mages do) and died, then popped arcane power, mana gem, and mirror image all at the same time and he was cake :) Level 75
King Krush is now a non-elite, level 75 rare with a fairly normal health pool. He is still a unique skin and part of the Frostbitten achievement.
Posting this because there seems to be no notes of his new "pushover" status in the top few comments, and it's important to know that you no longer really need help or tactics to tame this fellow, even at the appropriate level. Sad, too :(
i got him
server: argent dawn(US)
3:15am server time
was very bored and had nothing to do so i turned up my sound was circleing all around sholazar basin was hoping to get Loque'nahak or Aotona so far no luck. took me about an hour of patrolling to get King Krush.
I just solo'ed him as lvl 70 disciplin priest in fully gemmed/enchanted pvp gear (16k HP self buffed). First attempt I didnt know what to expect and eventually got feared into a bunch of those wasps, didnt survive that of course. For the next attempt I followed him along his path (along the south east ridge bordering to wintergrasp), until he reached the far eastern end of his path, where other mobs are sparce, and I tagged him and kited him as far as possible up the steep ridge, shielded and fear warded me, so I could avoid his first fear. For his next fears I checked if I would fear into other mobs, if so Id use my human racial, and otherwise just let it run out. It worked pretty much like planned with only little luck involved, mainly no other higher level player having him tagged before me :)
BTW I farm these rares mainly for the stack of cloth they always deliver. Time wise it maybe on par with just farming cloth in instances or anywhere else but it is just so much more fun stalking some rare prey.
Tamed 01-14-2012 1:38am server time
Server: Emerald Dream
I have been looking for Loque for some time now and tonight when i got home from work i logged in and my NPCScan went off instantly. king krush was righ below me. after a few unsuccesful attempts ending with feign death, i managed a successful tame. thank goodness no one else was around to steal him while i was recouping!
So, i had this theory about the rares in Scholozar...Twice now when i have been there i have had one spawn, and then ten minutes later, another one spawn. The first time it was King Krush, and then Loque'Nahak (my hunter was a very happy Worgen!) And just now, last night, Loque'Nahak and Aotona. So i am assuming, that if this is true, after you nab one of the three
stick around for a bit and see if you can spot another.
I have yet to officially test this theory, but it sounds like a good one. Also, they seem to spawn in a
If Krush spawns, Loque'Nahak follows. If Loque'nahak spawns, Aotona will. And if Aotona spawns, Krush may. Only two will spawn within ten minutes of each other--there will probably NEVER be three in a row. If anyone can prove or disprove this theory, please do so.
OK, this is a new one for me. I have long been a rare seeker and tamer for achievements and for pets for my hunter. Today, I saw something I've not seen before: Loque'nahak and King Krush up at the same time, in the same place. Posting a screenshot.
I found this guy on my goblin hunter last night at EXACTLY 9:30PM, Sentinels Realm Pacific time. He spawned around 50,42 by the Glimmering spawn point. This was a Tuesday after server maintenance (server came online again at 11:00AM exactly), not sure if this has much to do with anything but it might be useful. I had been camping him all day from exactly 11AM and not seen any other of the rares around the area either.
He does a headbutt, which automatically takes you out of the tame channel, and then the fear for (4? 5?) seconds. I'm 85 so it wasn't much of an issue, just really annoying. Awesome pet, I highly recommend! :)
Just got him at 57-80 on Auchindoun,1:01 realm time.Killed him this time,already had him for a pet.Got Kings Eyesocket of bandit,34ag 51 stam 34 crit.
Tamed The King on 2/6 at 8:45am. Quested here from 77 until 79, completed all quest, never saw The King or Loque the entire time. Came back to zone on Monday morning to do Oracle Dailies. Did a /who and no-one was in the zone, checked for both and got them both. My hunch is that after many hunters fruitless and frustrating weekend of trying to get these guys, people maybe had decided to give it a break for a day or so, or pure luck.
Tactics that I had prepared for if I met the Crusher again:
1. Equipped Pre-80 Cata gear, which becomes available around level 78, this increases health pool dramatically.
2. Had highest level haste potion I could find, and popped it right before tame.
3. Got the farthest possible distance from him as possible to initiate tame.
4. Kept pet out and had him occupy the king while I positioned myself.
5. Used healing drums, a HoT leatherworking, buff item.
6. Dismissed pet and as soon as I could hit tame button.
7. Prayed he did not cast fear, which he didn't and got the tame.
Stack haste as much as possible and increase sta as much as possible to survive tame. Hope this helps people with a very hard tame. Remember he is immune to all slowing and freezing abilities we have as hunters.
Just tamed this guy this morning, i was looking for a spirit beast, saw him, and knew this was a rare spawn, easy to tame except for when he interpreted my taming, and i had to start all over again.
Just tamed King Krush this morning!
While flying around (immediately after catching Loque'nahak; I've got good luck today) early in the morning, NPCscan started going crazy.
I tamed Krush at 2:55 a.m. CST on Dawnbringer, near the Glimmering Pillar area.
I seriously doubt this was anywhere within his spawn time, because the odds of both of them being there is really weird. However, Northrend on my server is just
, so no one noticed either of the rares. I highly suggest hunting at an early hour to avoid any competition!
Also, lower levels may want to throw a trap down, as well as Deterrence, if not a stamina-boosting potion. Krush hits HARD. At decently-geared 85, he still took out about 30-40% of my health. But he's a pretty pet! Good luck, all! :]
just tamed him , after about 5 mins , his fear kept stopping the tame, stuck with it got him at co ords
47.9 43.9, good luck .
i finally found this guy today but in the middle of taming it some dude walks over and kills it. was so pissed.
Just tamed this guy today 3/18/12 at 5:20pm ish sever time one Kil'jeaden (US)
got him at 61, 82. It took about to try's just because of his fear but he is pretty cool. I also got Loque yesterday around 10:20pm as well.
Just tamed him at 1:40 pm on US Dentarg sever time.Fairly easy tame.Just feared me once which broke my taming, but try it again and had no problems.
For those who use
released on December 16th 2011 (most current version as of now)...
Aotona, King Krush, and Loque'Nahak will NOT trigger an NPCScan alert. If you add them to NPCScan
, using Northrend instead of Sholazar Basin, they will alert. I have requested Saiket, the addon's creator, to correct this in the next update (if there is one).
I just tamed King Krush at 10:40pm Server Time. I missed it 3 times. Looks like King Krush spawns at a very fix 6 hour interval on Garona Server. The first time I was AFK when NPCScan went off. Then the 2nd time a Death Knight Killed it. A Third time I was 5 minutes late and someone else tamed it. I logged in at 10:30pm not expecting anything and I did my rounds and NPCScan went off in the north spawn location.
YAY I can finally move out of SB! lol I have been camping there for weeks
been searching for Loque'nakan for about 4 hours now, seen king krus dead at 12:25 server time near the savage thicket and thought yes i might have a chance now on loque been searching for 30 mins and still no loque so i dont think they share spawn timers. daggerspine
Just tamed my big green lizard at 10:10 server time on Rexxar. Found him at the Skyreach pillar by the blue crystals on the opposite side of the Loque'Nahak spawn point. :)
I was on the hunt for Loque'nahak when I found this dude. I really didnt care whatsoever, but since he was a rare, why not tame it? I found him just at 51:42 and I really didnt have an geekgasm or anything. This devilsaur is one of a kind with its green-like skin. :)
I tred this as a level 76 hunter. I summoned up a tank pet, sent him to krush, dismissed pet when he got feared, and immediately started the tame. Worked pretty well
i was on my friends toon messin around a little bit due to the fact that he told me i could. and when i was runnin around sholazar basin around where the gorillas are at and keep this in mind i have benn lookin for both krush and loque for a year and my toon is on another server so back to the story i was over by the gorillas an low and #$%^ing behold both loque and krush spawn and im like holy *!@# holy *!@# so i call up my friend an put him on skype and ask hi if he wants then and he says yes so after a long and grueling battle with krush cuz he kept kockin me down i go on to loque and he was a little bit easier due to the fact that i wanted to use the trap trap on loque instead of on krush so all in the span of 10 to 15 min i had tamed two of the most wanted pets in that area and man was that a adrenalin rush
I caught this lovely thing sometime last week on Moon Guard. It took a approximately 16 hours over the course of two and a half days.
The first time I started camping him was 7:30AM server time to about 2PM. Not a thing, although I did manage to find and tame Loque randomly while patrolling. About 4 hours later, I came in only to find another hunter just have tamed him. Nonetheless, I continued to patrol, since there was no clear cut answer on spawn time from what I'd seen (too much stuff about theories and ya never know). I gave up at about 12PM, no find.
The next day in the morning, I ran over his areas again, still nothing. So I finally said, it's better if you just randomly come by and check, don't farm. Unless you're going to farm all of Northrend and kill rares, I suggest having a mage handy to bring you back to Dal so you can go back to SB, or do dungeons/heroics and check the spawn points in between ques.
Also, talk to other people in the area-especially 85s. Yes, some will be farming for their professions, but some of them are checking for the achievements. If you ask for a favor to get the pet in exchange for gold, you might have an ally in getting your rare.
Hope this helped.
Rezyaroua Tauren Hunter, Moon Guard
VERY easy to tame at 85 with crap gear (iLvL 308) and poor haste rating (only 666) with no potions nor foods nor chants nor schemes.
Note: he *will* fear you at start, just ignore and try again or attack with your pet, let it be feared then dismiss and proceed with tame.
Also noteworthy: CC does not work on him.
Other than that, easy peasy at 85.
I tamed him today at about 7:00pm (GMT) Vek'nilash wondering around the western points. I came across him first time looking today so must have been really lucky. At lvl 85 it was pretty easy going, but he can throw you hard and made me lose my tame about a second before it was done first time.
As for Loq I caught her about 4am a few weeks ago after spending a few days dipping in and out looking so I was really lucky with these two.
While doing my daily Sholazar Basin rounds for Loque, I found King Krush this morning! He was wandering around the Glimmering Pillar spawn area at about 47, 41. Other than resisting my ice trap and fearing me twice into surrounding mobs he was very easy to tame as a level 85. I got Aotona last week at 43, 70. Still no Loque, but I now have 2/3 rare spawns in Sholazar, so I'm hoping my persistence pays off soon!
okay, so me on the 3rd day of searching the spawn points of Louque'nahak i came to a hill and saw a dinosaur yeti hadnt seen any dinosaurs around so naturally i went to check it out i clicked on him and was going to kill him to see what he would drop so i targeted him and i noticed the gray dragon around his picture so i decided to tame him ...
i pressed the spell and it got half way through and he feared me cancelling the my spell so i quickly pressed it again but it didnt work so now i was at about a quarter health and no luck so i pressed it one more time knowing that this would probably end out badly and so he bit me ... that took me to about 1/6 of my health the spell was soon to be done .... he bit me once more and i was dead though i saw that the spell had finished so i was confused.... when i got to my body and rezzed i didnt have a pet so i quickly checked the area for the king i didnt see him so i checked my pets on call and to my surprise there he was as glorious as ever ... i had won! ........
2 minutes later i found Louque........
more on that when i finish taming him :P lol
this dinosaur i don't really like because nobody can really tell hes rare because he looks exactly like a gazillion other devilsaurs
i like spirit beasts because EVERYONE can tell THEY'RE rare especially Loque'nahak because everyone wants him
This Mob Brings Back Bad Memories. I Tried Tamming Him TWICE. Both Times He Was Killed By A Gnome. Fml. What Makes It Worse Is I Found Him By Luck And Was The Happiest Girl Alive -_-
As of patch 5.0.4 King Krush cannot be tamed. When attempting to tame (even at low health) the following message is displayed: "Creature cannot be tamed".
tame him, I just did a few minutes ago. I was camping waiting for Loque'nahak and right when I was about to go to bed, King Krush spawns right in front of me so I decided even though he's not what I was waiting for, I'll take him too.
Hello all King Krush fans,
As a hunter I wanted to share my incredible taming experience of King Krush.
Two years ago I chased him for months, only to see him killed on the ground or even live several time, once by the guards of the Western camp. As I froze my account for various reasons he remained elusive for good.
Few weeks ago, unfreezing my account, leveled up to 85 and couple days ago decided to tame him. Figured, the basin would be less crowded. Wrongfully so. First round, I asked if anyone seen him and someone messages me he killed him minutes ago for the high deed. Duh. Yesterday as I was looking my faith went astray looking for Harakiss the Infestor in Tanaris also and when I came back, there he was laying on the floor on the north path of the basin. I asked who killed him and none of the three other players in the basin dared to answer. I noticed the time, it was 23:15, and figured at first I would have to get up at 03:15 at night for another shot, until I read here (thanks guys) the respawn time is about 8 hours, or 8 hours and a half. To be on the safe side I set my clock at 07:00 (I work for myself and ususally don't get up that early).
So this morning up I went, patrolling when I saw a quite bright cat on the northern spot where Krush died the night before. I click and was Loque Nahak. SilverDragon didn't ring because it had him in cache. I went around and figured, I would have to remove Loque before Krush pops up. But as an animal lover I didn't want the bad karma of killing Loque, so I thought, I would tame him again (already have him stabled) and use him as my disposable pet to tame Krush. Abandoned my old desert wolf who had previously that job, took Loque, and went on to the Glimmering Pillar. There was King Krush! SilverDragon gonged as my heart started instantly pounding. At first I couldn't even get off my blue hippogryph because "Can't do that while swimming", wtf? I flew a little higher and fell from my mount. Made a few steps, drank a speed potion, cast Bestial Wrath, said goodbye to Loque and hit tame, crossing my fingers. The tame itself went unscathed as I was 85 and Krush 75. There I got him! Finally! I was so excited ;-)
I then went to the lake and wanted to teach him tank as secondary talent. As I did, Krush vanished and I couldn't invoke him again. I started to freak out but reverted to my primary tree and there I could invoke him again. I didn't realise the secondary talents for the pet are not pet-related. Later on, I realised it was just because I was lacking the summon pet with choice button, on my alternative interface.
Anyway, here's a screenshot. Hail from French server Elune. Didn't name the beast yet, but soon will.
So, hunters out there, don't desperate, it *is* easier to tame him today, but you still have to be on the stalk.
Tammed on Nemesis(Brazil) server at 09/13/2012 at 18:46,
He's now a normal mob with average HP and do a little damage, not a elite anymore. U can tame him without any help or potions.
Just remember, dont pull to Nesingwary post, or guards will kill it.
I want to stop what everyone is saying. I was flying around Sholazar Basin at around 11:30 ST (Cho'gall) when King Krush spawned. I decided to tame him even though I was in search of Loque. You CAN tame this mob, I am now a proud of owner of the only Green Devilsaur. I repeat YOU
Tame this mob and he is STILL an Elite Rare mob
still as of 9/17/2012
this sucks, after the cross realm zones went live, sholazar basin has became a gankfest, pvp zone... in the underbog... (/cry) i have little hope to find king krush alive anytime soon.....
Not going to comment on all of the rares, but see here:
So at least in theory they will go back to being only as difficult as they were before - and hey, maybe they'll be even easier.
Just posting here because it's the only one I have left to get, and I'm assuming the Sholazar mobs are the ones most people have left on the kill achievement, due to the competition with hunters.
As a side note - I hereby apologize on behalf of all of us achievement nerds out there, to all of you hunters out there that I've killed a mob on (or will kill a mob on.) Blame Blizzard for putting the tormenting system of achievements in front of a bunch of OCD completists!
Found King Krush around 420 central time. He was walking along the southwest area, near the apes.
I was camping for loque'nahak and he popped up right in front of me. i was a bit shocked. I dis-mounted and begin to tame and he feared me once. I tried to tame again and every thing went smoothly. Easy tame!
i tamed him at 2:09 server time in the south gorilla spawn point
server: blood furnance
hope this helps, happy hunting ;D
he must have wondered through the waygate
Like many others, I was running laps around Sholazar Basin and got tired of that so from reading all the comments about King Krush spawning at the Glimmering Pillar I decided to sit there. 30 min - an hour later he spawns right below me and I got him :)
The old king will be missed, green was rarest and THE BEST. But if he will dule the new mop ones
KING KRUSH SPAWN TIME!: 4 hours
I say this because farming him i spent 7 hours, first 3 no go, went to use a restroom he spawned IN FRONT of a i was hanging with, and she tamed him.-_- (she was horde, i was alli, she didnt know i wanted him till she got a spam of /mad and one /cry. At least I knew she was nice because then i got back alot of /sorry's.) That was 10pm ish. I wanted to go to bed, before bed at 3am i desided to check one last time? Gess what I found? HIM! DEAD! I think i scared who killed him because i said if they were horde they wouldnt get out of the spirt world till i crashed, comp, or me from sleepyness. Bless their lucky stars, idk who killed him.
Once again, PROVED, 4 hours spawn time after death, gess same for tame as them he's kidda 'gone' off map when owned by the hunter.
Most say a 4-10 hour spawn time, i would gess it is only 1 exact amount and would think it wouldnt differ because its easyer to have the mob set for 1 time. So if im right, i should have some signs of him, dead, or tamed by me or another, at 7am today. woo.
Just tamed King Krush. Realm time was 3:51pm for all those who would like to do the same :)
Just tamed him around 12:30-12:40 around 37.8 27.8 on Argent dawn eu i did not look for him i was acctuly flying around looking for noque when i saw a paladin fly over him i was going to kill him i managed to give him a whisper really fast and he let me tame it :)

Found King Krush twice in the same day on the Deathwing server, (maybe 4-5 hours apart) while hunting for one of the other rare's. Both times at the exact same location; 48, 44. He was walking the path beside the Shardhorn Rhino's.
At lvl 85 he was an easy kill, only used Feared on me once and went down rather quickly.
Tamed today 02/24/2013 at 3:20am Tichondrius US. South spawn point. Feared me twice and broke tame right at the end of both tames. Popped Potion of Speed and tame completed before he could fear me again. L90 BM Hunter
I was looking for Loque'Nahak when suddenly King Krush appeared behind me. I thought that it would be good to have atleast him, when not Loque'Nahak, so I was already clicking at the tame when death knight grappled him and one hitted him. He just smiled at me and flied away. Hope this won't happen to you...Good luck in hunting.
It took 2 days but finally got him today and non of the rare beasts troubled me this much. Most of the comments and forums say it has 3-6 hours spawn time ...well its true i guess but dont think it's gonna be an easy job because catching him alive or/and protect him from miners, levelers, achivers, gankers and even from hunters who has it is the hardest part and im not even counting the hunters who wants to tame it.. Anyway first day i search it like i always do which is flying spawn point by point and non-stop touring ..well it didnt worked. I found it dead everytime maybe with 10sec delay and it hurts when u waste like 12hours for nothing. Next day after my big failure i decided to camp at one point no matter what and after 18h it spawned and i got him. He didnt feared me once by the way and tame was extremly easy. I camped at The Glimmering Pillar spawn point because it is easy to control that area and i heard it is the most common spawn point of KK (i dont know if its true). So guys happy hunting i hope its not gonna be a pain in the a. for you because it was for me -.-
4:40pm ingame time
coords: 56.73,82.46 not tamed by me
I found King Krush the hardest to tame of the Northrend rares, not because he himself is hard to tame, simply because he's hard to FIND with so many spawn points and so many questers in the area (especially with cross-realm) some people might kill him without meaning to and others still are doing the achievement where you have to kill him. Aotona is almost as bad, but she isn't as sought after as this beauty. Krush is my favorite pet to use, besides Acroniss.
I just tamed King krush at 10:50 PM local time. I camped him for 3 days, the first 2 days a couple other hunters got him, and i saw
My tiny king krush i found him on the search of Loque’nahak
Found and tamed at 8:15am server time on Emerald dream right under the glistening pillar
I caught him today at 3:30 realm time at 64.81, 77.84. I had a core hound out for ancient hysteria and glyph of tame beast. I tamed him from the maximum distance and he was tamed just before he reached me. To anyone looking for him, good luck!
Just tamed this guy while camping a spot for Loque. (66.5,80) He is immune to traps like other mentioned. Easy tame and does not bite to hard, even in my lower lvl. Good luck to other hunters!
Eclipse lvl 76 - Trollbane
while looking for loque i saw him but didn't tame him becouse i don't like his colour (i already have an albino devilsaur wich i personally think is cooler) but i also passed on killing him becouse i know some hunters might wanna tame him :)
I'm currently waiting on Loque to spawn right now, but lo and behold King Krush spawns in front of me instead so since this is the third time that I've unintentionally encountered him, I guess that I should post some information in case someone on
the Kil'jaeden server
is looking for him right now.
I had no interest in taming him, so I pulled him and waited for the hunter that had been looking for him earlier rushed to me to tame him. He was tamed at
9:16AM server time at his southeast spawn near the neutral gorillas.
The other two times I've encountered and, regrettably, killed him, was around when Wrath first came out, where I found him walking around next to the wall at the maker's perch, and more recently yesterday, where the second I entered Scholazar I found him wandering towards the Skyreach Pillar on the pathway, presumably having spawned in the same area near the neutral gorillas, so I'm thinking that that's a more common spawn point of his? Anyways, that's all I can really say to help even though it's probably already been said somewhere among these comments. Good luck to anyone who's out looking for him!
Just tamed him at 2:00pm game time. Had been standing around this morning waiting for Loque, and King Krush spawned twice. I have been standing at 65-78 near the passive Gorillas.
I was in dalaran when my npc scan went off for King Krush can anyone explain that?
Just tamed this beauty at 2:15 A.M. cst :)
caught King Krush at 6:07 server time on greymane, at 32/34 while waiting for logue.
Spotted King Krush at 1:15am MST at spawn point 66.2, 76.2.
King Krush tamed at 1.15am UK time.
Next to the southernmost spawn point next to neutral gorillas :)
This fiesty little fella is quite a beauty, not my favorite, but if I see a rare, I go for it.
I haven't tamed him yet, but I found him twice, once when Wratch came out and again yesterday, but the lil guy was dead.
A panda monk killed him in front of my very eyes.
It was a sad day.
March 19, 2014 --- For the second time in two weeks, I've been in Sholazar Basin at approximately 35, 30 and King Krush has spawned almost right on top of me, soooooo, if you are hunting for him, either for the quest (is that still a valid quest? I've only read of it here in older posts, not actually seen it) or to add him to your RARE Hunter Pet Collection, I could recommend that spot. His skin is unique and just a word of caution, he is IMMUNE to any kind of trap. If you want to tame him, as I did, you'll want to shoot him a few times BEFORE you start to tame him, or you risk getting killed. Well, if you're a level 77 as I was when I tamed him. As you probably already know, you must be in the Beast Master talent spec, and at least a level 75 to tame him.
Also, I'd like to add that he spawned, both times, at half past the hour. I am in the U.S.A. Central Time Zone and on the Azuremyst server and today it was about 4:24am that he came up. There was no indication he was behind me (although I couldn't miss the HUGE shadow on the ground!), and I use Silver Dragon to locate rare spawns, so in other words, the "pop-up" box and verbal warning did not activate when he spawned. Don't know why this was the case, but I thought I would share that. He is going to attack you though, unlike some rare spawns that don't.
The only other thing I might suggest is to turn so you're facing the waterfall. Both times, he has came from behind me because I was facing the lake and the Shattertusk Mammoth that wanders right here and the first time, he killed me! Don't know if I could've survived if I had been facing the other direction, but at least you won't be going, "WTF?" like I was.:-) Fortunately, the graveyard is very close and I was able to run back and tame him. This second time, I had to kill him *sad* because when I tried to run away, he attacked me.
Back again to let Hydraxis US server know (and of course other realms), that I tamed King Krush at 5:50pm EDT (not server time). I feel it is a duty of Hunters to let other Hunters know when a Rare spawns in the hope of a "count down to next spawn." I apologize for being a day late in reporting my tame and information but, here's how it went for me:
I started my camped yesterday (March 31, 2014) at around 9:30 am EDT, Hydraxis realm US. I started off near the Water Fall nearest Shango in the Basin. After reading comments here for Krush, I noted times, realms and such and also spawn times. I thought since the possibility of 4 hr spawn it wouldn't be so bad. Well, for Hydraxis, it was a 9 hour camp. I flew around for the first 1/2 hour....then proceeded to just camp one spot. Nearest the Water Fall close to Shango....then re read posts here. Decided to move to the area where the neutral Hardknuckle Foragers are located to the SE of Mosslight Pillar. Since this seemed to be mentioned frequently. I proceeded to sit there for 8 hrs from original arrival to the Basin at 9:30am.
I use Silver Dragon to aid in finding rares, and it did end up going off but I'm not sure if my cursor was over Krush or not. I was startled when he did show up finally at 5:50 pm EDT that I wasn't paying attention to much other than getting the tame off without a "fear" from King. Which I was very fortunate, he did not fear me as I was dreading he would and break tame. As most of you know, even with being Glyphed for the 6 sec tame, it feels like the longest 6 sec of one's life, lol.
I would like to mention that I was also grouped with some fine folks from different realms due to the CRZ effect (lol). Two of the other three were Hunters, one was a guildmate of a hunter. We spawn camped both Loque'nahak and Krush for those long 9 hrs together which made the time go by MUCH faster. I recommend doing this if you can, having more sets of "eyes" all over is a nice perk. A thank you to Zenfire, Wlvricius, and Trinissa who sat with me as we helped each other keep and eye out for these rares. I would also like to mention that Wlv tamed Loque around 45 minutes later from my taming of Krush. His tame was to the NE of my location. More East than north though.
Advice? Don't give up, I don't know spawn times and I apologize for that, however, I hope this helps some what with finding at least 2 of the 3 Rares in this area. And most of all, Good Luck! I hope you find your rares sooner than later! /hugs to all my fellow Hunters <3
and remember....."what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger"
Tamed at 7:40 am realm time on Uldum between the monkeys and the pillar. :)
Got the King in front of the waterfall at Makers Perch. Got "feared" once, super easy tame. Camped for about an hour an 45 mins.
After 3 days of camping for Loque'nahak only to return to my computer after cooking dinner and finding the poor kitty dead at my feet, I figure I have a few hours before it's necessary to camp again. So I fly around, checking out King Krush's spawn points just to see if I'd strike some luck. One fly around, no Krush. Start looking through comments and seeing a consensus that his timer seems to be at 8.5 hours. So I figure I'll do one more fly around then turn in for the night.
As I approach the Glimmering Pillar, my NPC scanner goes off. Can't believe my luck. Look around, no sign of him, and then I see his head bobbing up and down over the top of a boulder in the distance. I fly over quickly and dismount nearby. Taking out a dreadsaber I had just tamed on the advice in other comments, I go in for the tame. Wait for him to Fear the cat, abandon it, then begin attempting to tame King Krush. When he comes after me though, he throws me back: ending my taming and getting me stuck between some rocks. The rocks end up being in the way of trying to tame him again and once I manage to get out of the rocks, I just barely start to tame him when he Fears me. Few seconds later I start taming again, and it's going down, so close, almost there...
...And he kills me 2 seconds away from taming him... Although my heart's beating like crazy cause I don't handle adrenaline very well, I'm not too put out (I'm a cat girl myself). But the graveyard isn't too far away so I quickly run back, regenerate, down a potion and tare after that green bobbing head once again.
I figure since he had managed to beat me up pretty good before he feared me the first time, and I had been so close to successfully nabbing him afterward, that I wouldn't bother sending a pet after him first. So I wait for him to fear me, which he wastes no time in doing, luckily, then once that's done, I start taming. Boy does he hit hard; my health dropping like crazy and the taming meter getting closer and closer, I realize in a moment of hope that I'm up more health this time at this point in the taming than I was before. As long as he doesn't slip in another Fear, I should be good! And sure enough that big krushy becomes not-so-big, friendly krushy by my side! With 3K health to spare on my Lv. 77 blood elf! Not a bad day!
Would like to add that we have official word from Jeremy Feasel/Muffinus that tamable beasties have gotten their respawn timer reduced since Cataclysm, which includes the beauties from Frostbitten, so hunters like myself need not wait as long anymore if we see them dead or engaged, so we can't tame them.
Here is the twitter conversation
Please, do not despair, my hunter kin. We will get them all, eventually :)
Just tamed King Krush at 51,43. I was doing the Oracles daily when NPCScan went off. I wasn't looking for him in particular, was just a lucky tame. At level, it was a quick and easy tame. He did feared me once, but I quickly got back to the tame.
After spending days in the basin looking for Loque'nahak a couple of weeks ago I came across Aotona, then a couple of days later I tamed this lovely green skinned devilsaur. I decided to take a break from searching for Loque'nahak as it was so time consuming and nerve racking as I had missed him so many times, finding him dead in the night of the day I was looking for him being one.
Today I returned to the basin to do a quick sweep and just as I went to finish my first sweep I saw King Krush bobbing along, I started freaking out and telling my other hunter friend when I saw him getting tamed and landed and said gz to the hunter who had tamed him who just laughed at me and then I realise that it was horde so I did /gz instead. He spawned at the same location I had tamed him a couple of weeks before, the path he walks going from Loques location at the gorillas to the skyreach pillar.
Time: 3:00pm UK time approx.
Server: Stormrage Eu
I just wanted to share the time and realm to help other hunters in their tame and hope that they will do the same for others and in hope that I would have the same respect in finding Loque'nahak. Good luck to all you hunters!
Tamed after two days of just misses and not being in the right location, Hyjal ,26,46 @ 12:14 server. Spawn time of almost 7 hours from last known sighting.
Just tamed on eu thunderhorn @ 14.15 (give or take a min or two) at the Skyreach pillar.
i just tamed krush @11:50am ish and then loque'nahak @ 12:56pm today dec 17th. i was flying all over zone yesterday off and on whe ni could be at the comp , till i was falling asleep and went to bed. then today since 8am been flying laps around the basin ,with exception of taking kids down street to school and stoping at a spawn loca and going for a smoke ( could still see screen through window lol). then poof there was krush 15ft in front of me so i hoped on him and lil over 1hr later i got loque. so the poster is right much so , they dont share spawn times they can spawn same day within short time of each other, there is no huge day span between spawns and such its much easyer to tame these days even with the cross realms. but if u just camp 1 spot ur alot less likly to get it or if u do what i did b4 and just do a lap here and there. u have to actually hunt for him/them and u will get ur companion (s)
Tamed this jerk about 10 minutes ago on Whisperwind after he 'snuck' up on me while I was questing and killed me. Man, I was terrified, but he sure is awesome!
Caught him 1/14/2015 on a Wednesday. He spawned exactly at 6:00 AM at the glimmering spawn location.. Right as I was about to give up and log off after camping for 4 hours.
Finally, the torture is over!
Hello everyone. I wanted to ask for help. I have been camping king krush for over a week now and not only has there been no sighting, I have not even seen a corps. I am almost starting to belive he doesn't exist. If there is someone out there in a non-populated server who is willing to group up and so I can scan their server please respond and we'll share battletags or something. Thanks in advance.
Can't belive it! Just tamed King Krush and Loque'nahak 10 minutes ago.
Nemesis realm, Krush spawned at the Glimmering Pillar spot, and a few minutes after Loque spawned in front of me the Nesingwary Base Camp spot.
I think the spawn time is around 6 to 8 hours!
Happy hunting guys!
Camped him for a long time and finally got lucky. Forgot to dismiss or put my pet on passive; in the middle of taming my wolf popped out and killed him in one bite. No tame, not even a credit for kill. Can't believe I did that. LEARN FROM ME, FRIENDS ;___;
Killed on Nagrand 7.44am
Tamed on Bladefist at 3 am Pac time near the nesingwary camp area.
Tamed 3/24/15 on Norgannon @ 845pm
Just tamed at 3:22 P.M. central time at area between pond and gorillas.
Tamed at 1am on Outland, at the gorillas. King Krush down, Loque next. Happy hunting:)
Tamed King Krush 9:32AM 4/20/2015
One day after taming Laque. 4/19/2015 but don't remember the time.
South of the Shimmering Piller
Steamweedle Cartel (Server) US
Tamed today (05/14/2015), at 06:25am, realm Nemesis US, coordinates 29.8, 41.0.
It would be nice if people could post more resp information, we wouldn't spend hours trying to guess.
Still waiting for Loque'nahak .
Just got him on Amanthul. Took 8 days of searching and waiting. Probably 3-4 hours a day.
Got Loque and Aotona during that time.
Tried a Freezing trap but he is Immune.
Did the macro -
/use Potion of Speed
/cast Tame Beast
Macro no use he feared me. As soon as Fear was over tried normal tame, let him hit on me and tamed him easy.
I'm level 100.
Good luck guys.
just killed King Krush on Whisperwind at 6:06am server time at 30.5 39.24 for those with timers. that gave me the achie! good luck folks!
Tamed today (06/15/2015), at 02:10am PST, realm Nemesis US, coordinates 50,80.
Tamed on Wyrmrest Accord at approximately 5:05pm realm time. Hope this helps with the spawn timers.
Good luck tamers!
Also, I haven't read this anywhere else, but this guy is LOUD. I don't usually BM spec, I'm still kinda learning how to play it, but when I do, I have him out (until I get Loque), and he yells all the time when you're standing still. He never shuts up. And he has a cool roar that doesn't sound like a raptor either. Not sure if it's a Devilsaur thing or a King Krush thing, but I thought it was noteworthy.
I feel the need to tell my tale....twas the night Wrath launched, and whilst waiting for my friends to catch up with me, i took a side trip into the basin, with my level 72 prot warrior.
Was actually doing ok in my crap left overs from TBC, but then the ground shook. And there he was, the mighty King Krush. I fought the good fight, but to no avail he killed me.
Three months later i notice i need only one kill for Frostbitten. King Krush. So i begin hunting. Note the version number. I am still hunting him to this day.
Just tamed him today on 10/06/2015. Found him at 33.8,32.8. He is Reptar and he will get to eat new things now. Mainly horde.
After playing the game for a year visiting Sholazar Basin almost on a daily basis I HAVE NEVER seen this guy. So that's why i didn't even bother searching for him with my hunter. Then one day i was just doing some mining and he spawned in front of me on the frenzyheart hill next to the bees. He is not as cool as loque to be honest so he's no worth the fuss.
Yesterday evening i did a round at 1:00 AM and there was nothing. logging back in at 9:00 AM doing another round i found him walking around. got feared once and tamed him afterwards.
Hi peeps i logged in at 14:20 uk time on Arathor and King Krush was near 67,79ish at 14:30 i accidently killed him.Oops
Ah what a marvelous day! I finally tamed it. Location: 47.0;44.0. I think this is the best camping spot since you do not have to run a lot in order to follow him.
He is huge so you won't miss him even if you would like to.
As a lvl 100 hunter I wasn't feared and the taming went pretty well.
Good Luck on the path, fellow big game hunters!
Great news for Hunters for Patch 7.0! Taming King Krush now grants achievement credit towards
, allowing you to avoid the heartbreak of making a decision on whether or not to kill him for the achievement!
Killed on EU-DieNachtwache 15th of august around 13:28
Just nabbed him at 36,31 at 1:50pm realm time on Kirin Tor! For the record, I've picked up KK, Loque, and Aotona this morning and all 3 on KT. No realm hopping needed!
Tamed this morning at 6:45am PDT on Cenarius. I was looking around the basin for Aotona and happened to come across this guy at the Glimmering Pillar spot.
Have been looking for Loque'Nahak for my husband and ran into this big guy (Krush) at around 2:34-2:36am 11/23/2016 central time on Shu'halo server, 1 minute before I was a little too close to the middle (as I was looking for Loque' and found Aotona as well. Went ahead and got both of them for him since I was already out here :)
got King Krush around 64.80 coord (when you open your map, to the east of skyreach pillar, south of the little cave icon on the map, he was to the south of that.) is around where I got him and Aotona 42.70 (the big dry spot in that area, she was right in the middle of it)
I hope that this helps someone out ;)
Happy Hunting <3
p.s. since this is a crossrealm area, if you happen to be a linked realm with Shu'halo.. you should be able to get there as well and have that timer
Found around 50/44 at 00:06 server time, it was between server Bleeding Hollow or Black Dragonflight I Dont know because I was realm hopping and the thing gets buggy.
I was starting to lose sanity hunting these rares in Sholazar Basin because there is always too many people on the zone, keep hunting day and night, eventually you will get them for the achievement.
Today I've found out that, not only taming King Krush or any of the beasts required for the Frostbitten achievement counts towards it, but it also counts for the whole party. I found this out while I (dwarf paladin) was helping my BFF (gnome hunter) tame Loque'Nahak. After she was done taming it, the achievement progress window popped for me as if I had killed Loque'Nahak. Which means there is no reason at all to actually kill any of these gorgeous beasts if a hunter is currently seeking to tame them - you can just invite the hunter so that they can tame the beast and both of you get credit for it.Or, if you have a hunter alt, you might as well tame them instead of killing them, as the achievement progress is account wide.
Spread some love today!
Just make sure that you unequiped Titanstrike before tameing, because Hati can remain active even when you dismissed your pet.. Yeah I just saw him killed 2nd time after all there years and I couldn't do anything (1st time by some lvling lowbie).. Happy hunting!
Got mine in Legion, kinda late maybe but rares can be a pain in the a*s sometimes.
Got him between rock tower and the water in the middle area, easy tame with aspect of the turtle (green shell), he did fear me once.
Even though later we got
I still think King Krush fits the looks of Reptar better.
Despite being 66 and Krush being 68, I was still able to tame him. I've experimented and seems level does not matter so long as you're at least within 2 levels of them.
I just got him looking for for the kitty, i tamed him at 28, 46.1
Just tamed King Krush on Terokkar EU, WM OFF, at 8:00pm ST (7:00pm CET). Near Glimmering Pillar at 47,43.<3
Killed him at coordinates 34,33 Sholazar Basin, EU Turalyon, time 16:45 CEST.
Just tamed this guy at 35:30. Third time I have encountered him there! If you face toward the water you can see him a second before he gets to you. Face towards the tree/rock/Shattertusk Mammoth, and Loque spawns there. 😊Also seems less camped than other spots, so less chances of missing out. Good luck!
I started hunting for king krush for 2 days. always running around from SeaBranch Flow near the waterfall then to the Glimmering Pillar then all the way down to the Skyreach Pillar and back to the Maker's Perch 2 whole days and nothing! starting to run out of patient and decided to do one final round and there he was at
( Glimmering Pillar )
BIG T REX and light lime green colour so beautiful.
My heart was pounding hard cause there's all these hunters flying around so I decided to act quick and dismissed my current pet and tame him straight away.
My lvl at the time was 74 and KingKrush was at 76. While i'm taming him half way through he will use Terrifying Roar which makes you run around for good 4-5secs then you will have to start all over again to tame him and at this point my health is like down to 30%-20% almost dying so quickly ran off and try again and again still failed.
. Use Freeze trap on KingKrush and then Tame him . Perfect, job done without any damage to me :D
Good luck everyone and BE PATIENT.. it will defintely show up. Spend almost 12-14hours per day just going round and round and almost give up too but he will show up eventually :)
Found today (31/5/2020) at 53/42 heading north to the boneyard
Moonglade, EU server
Found him at 11:50 PM 06/20-2020 on Ravencrest-EU.

On my level 30 Priest he is walking around but on my 50 hunter he is not there. This has to be a glitch. I logged my hunter out in the same place I left my Priest. She can see him buy my hunter cant. I tamed the leopard this morning with no problem wtf wow.
Killed at 30.22, 39.48 at 5:05pm (Melbourne, Australia time)
He had just spawned as I was reading Wowhead, NPC scanner dinged at me.
