A Close Cousin of this NPC:
Crash Test Creature
. It will cast
if you don't kill it fast enough.
Edit: As of a recent Beta Patch the turtle has been fixed and you will no longer experience 9-52 Fatal Errors while attempting to complete the quest!
For those interested- here's a
MoP Beta Thread
from the WoW Forums suggesting that the Valley of the Four Winds Inn, when it is added, should be named "The Crashing Turtle" in commemoration of these joyous little fella's.
Thread OP Post:
Those of us in the Valley of the Four winds, who valiantly fought through the multiple MULTIPLE fatal exceptions to finish the "The Meat they'll eat" quest have a suggestion.
We would like the Inn in the zone, when it's created, to be named "The Crashing Turtle" in a nod to our patience and suffering.
That is all. <3ps. Thanks to all of the people who are commenting, your comments are fun, whimsical, and I absolutely love them.
People on my realm AoE these guys like crazy. They instantly respawn. I assume they're farming turtle meat. It's hard for me to tag these first to finish the quest, so I hope the drop rate gets nerfed.
10-17-2012. This is a huge exploit that Blizzard will need to fix. The turtles respawn at an incredible rate, AoE well, are easily killed, and are good for motes of harmony, prismatic scales, and sha and exotic leathers. Also helps lvling a toon by the exp points. I sat there for 3 hours JUST skinning the leftovers from other peoples AoE. I mean no moving about more than 30 seconds to get to the next pile of turtles 20-30 in a skinnable circle. Prismatic scales are easily obtained which are going for 30 gold each on my server.
I was warned by a whisper that Blizz are banning folks who are lvling here (but of course that was probably by another skinner).
I got 7 full Harmonies in several hours of off and on work. Great for my Alliance hunter/engineer.
Fortunately its mostly horde doing all the killing!
These are great for skinning if you're not 90 yet. The demand on their loot is high, so all you have to do is wait for others to kill them and just skin all the bodies. I got like 100 in 10 minutes.
5.0.5 hotfix (October 19 2012):
Wyrmhorn Turtles are no longer quite so prolific.
So that settles that.
As of 11/15/2012 I can confirm that these guys are still dropping Motes of Harmony, and at a good rate. They still spawn quite fast as well.
These turtles are great to farm for a number of different things, not only the motes.
You can get a lot of greens, motes, Raw Turtle Meat (Used for Ironpaw tokens at Halfhill), and skins if you are a skinner.
A level 85 can farm this area with little trouble, with 85 pet classes being able to pull really big groups at a time.
I recorded a video today showing the current re-spawn rates and drops:
I apologize for the laggy video. I have a pretty bad computer and my fps goes down the drain when I load fraps. Regardless, the information is all there and I hope it helps. :)
2012/11/23 - since there were farmers already in Jade I thought I swing by here.. in about 30min I got 67 Turtle Meat, about 10 motes?, and a bunch of greens.
It may not spawn like before but if you're the only one here it is plenty. Currently a i480 Hunter and I'm just doing laps around the lake..
So.. I think I'll be here for a bit and back again for more.
It seems like (or at least certainly feels like) the loot has been slightly altered on these turtles. The spot where they spawn had become my go-to farming spot for motes and exotic leather. Now tonight, so far, not a single mote has dropped, and I'm getting sha-touched leather, and maybe a few exotic every few mobs.
485 is the skinning level when you can start skinning these turtles. I was searching around and couldn't find out, so I wanted to let you guys know ;)
best place to skin, personally
