Given the title you earn from him I was expecting something more predatorish than a dreadlord.
*chokes through dustcloud*
oh, don't mind me, I was just blowing the dirt off
This one may be the
of the Tanaan Jungle. Quite a high respawn timer. Compared even with Time-Lost Proto Drake.
It looks like he will be the new TLPD of the extension if you kill it you'll get
Just speculation.. could it be a rare respawn of the named elite dreadlords in Throne of Kil'jaeden?
Some of the named elite dreadlords from
seems to share the same spawn point.
Update: Based on the new information posted, it looks like you're guaranteed to fight the monster (if he's up) after earning exalted with
and having killed all rares for
You can find this mob randomly by using the
. If lucky, you'll get teleported to 69.77, 38.52 in Tanaan where you can fight it.
Xemirkol has 2.6 million health, hits moderately hard and uses Shadow Crash to try knocking you out of the area.
You will also get a
debuff on you while there.
For proof, you can view my profile and see that I have the achievement.
for a screenshot, you'll see my current location at bottom left.
If you are flying over there (Ruiru's confirmed location to phased out spot: 69 38) with Aviana's Feather to use your Seeking Crystal, make sure you don't land on the building where it looks like you go into a dark place. You can't get out, unless you hearth or wait for your feather to go off cooldown. lol
Just obtained this on Chamber of Aspects EU
Not sure if its relevant but I have been using
every 15 minutes all day.
However as soon as I reached exalted with the remaining Draenor factions the very next time I used it I was teleported to him.
Also of note I died like a complete noob the first time (was too excited) and thought I had blown my chance.
So I ran back to my corpse ressed and waited for my crystal to cool down, used it again and I was instantly phased back to Xemirkol much to my obvious relief.
You can check my profile to see I have the achieve....happy hunting
DO NOT GET KNOCKED BACK OFF OF HIS PLATFORM!
You will phase away and lose your debuff (even if you get back onto the platform). Don't make the same mistake I did!
Here are his abilities:
(Note: He cannot be stunned)
Carrion Swarm: This is the knockback. He casts it in a frontal cone - move to the side to avoid being knocked back.
Shadow Crash: Purple swirl on the ground that soon becomes a purple puddle. If you are hit by this, you are stunned (and unable to move for Carrion Swarm!) - Make sure to avoid these. They do not go away, so there will be several by the time the fight is over.
Mind Blast: This can be interrupted.
How I found him:
I had been using my
on cooldown for the majority of 2 days with no luck.
I used the crystal at least 12 times once reaching Exalted with all of the factions and did not get ported there.
after I finished my
, I used the item and was ported to his platform.
I lost the kill the first time - I got knocked back off of the platform, phased, and lost my debuff. Then, I waited 15 minutes to use my Crystal again, and was ported back.
So, TLDR based on other replies:
Jungle Stalker Achievement Complete
Exalted with Order of the Awakened
Port Location is not important
Already have Jungle stalker and just got exalted with saberstalkers (already got all 3 rep's to honored), used the master hunters seeking crystal AND did not get ported to Xemirkol, so looking like maybe 2 rep's required, will update when get 2nd rep to exalted
It seems that you need Jungle Stalker achievement and exalted with Order of the Awakened.
being using the crystal for a few days with no luck, I had Jungle Stalker achievement. after reading comments from Lyndonf and Cecross, I decided to use some medallions. hit Exalted with Hand of the Prophet first and the crystal ported me to a normal rare, hit Exalted with Order of Awakening and get ported to Xemirkol. It makes sense since they are the one sells you the crystal.
Xemirkol is a really tough fight for a 679 frost mage. he cannot be stunned/snared/slowed and hit hard. I died 4 times. the last attempt I used everything: 5% stats buff from oranges(you can find them in the jungle across Tanaan), drum, heroism, flask, food buff, bodyguard, Hand of the Prophet Battle Standard (heals for 5% hp every 2s for 30s) and barely made it.
also, for Garrison ability, don't use Mechashredder, you will lost your debuff and get phased out, use Artillery Strike or the orb instead.
the title is account wide.
With the new change to Master Hunter's Seeking Crystal, one is never teleported to a rare you have already killed on that day. I've spent a portion of my day hunting down and killing every single rare spawn in Tanaan. Don't waste your time; in doing this, the seeking crystal merely 'pulsed faintly' and did not teleport me to Xemirkol. In fact, it didn't teleport me anywhere. It would therefore seem that being exalted with Order of the Awakened is a direct requirement to getting the Predator title, and there is no loophole.
In conckusion: using the crystal to find Xemirkol without being exalted with Order of the Awakened is a wasted effort. Nurture no hope. It will not happen.
The requirements seem to be:
Have the Master Hunter's Crystal
Exalted Reputation with the Order of Awakened
Have the Jungle Stalker achievement completed.
If you have all of these done, Xemirkol is open for the crystal.
Edit: I have obtained the Predator title. One thing more to add to the list:
Xemirkol has a huge respawn timer, if your crystal doesn't react even if you have the items listed above, you should try hopping into other realms in order to find him.
I did mine on Ragnaros-US, so I apologize for those who were trying for him today.
Apparently I had some misinformation. Yikes, the downvotes here rival that of reddits.
It should be known that using the Mechashredder (zone ability) automatically removes you from Xemirkol's phase, forcing you to wait on your crystal to reset in order to fight him again.
TLDR: it seems that
has a shared respawn timer.
So it might be something else to the requirements listed in the previous comments, because I have
and exalted with all Tannan factions and after 3 uses of the
I'm still not teleported to
Update: I've been using the crystal the whole day on cooldown and no teleport to
and I even got the "
The crystal pulses faintly, but fails to locate nearby prey...
" message once. So my experience contradicts everything posted in the comments so far. Did I miss a patch note somewhere?
I've submitted a ticket regarding this issue and hopefully we will know soon if it's a bug or something else.
Cancelled the ticket
Update3: From some comments and talking to people in game who have gotten the achievement recently it seems that
does in fact have a respawn timer.
Update4 (final): I found him by realmhopping as suggested by Gimi in the replies
title and feat of strength.
Realm hopping will most likely increase your chances of porting to him as he seems to be on a respawn timer.
Some have reported
to despawn during the encounter.
Just wanted to add my own experiences here.
I had gotten all my rares late last week and have just been using the
Master Hunter's Seeking Crystal
to find rares for the Apexis daily the past few days.
As soon as I hit Exalted with Order of the Awakened today I hit the crystal and was teleported tt Xemirkol.
For anyone who is wondering, yes you can run back to the area and get to your body, but Xemirkol will not be there. He is in a different phase it seems that you can only reach by using the crystal.
I used the crystal another two times and got to him both times. On the third time I killed him.
BE CAREFUL about getting punted out of the arena. He will despawn if you do. The second and third times I got hit by his Carrion Swarm while facing the back of the arena (away from the ledge) and he blew me through a crack in the wall that caused him to despawn. Luckily the third time he died as he punted me so I got the achievement!
I had the same problem with teleporting on my realm.
Wanted to point out the bug with resetting cd on crystal when entering skirmish or rated arenas.
I found a group through finder to realm hop and got ported to Xemirkol on the first try. It's just when its spawned it will port you right away.
Okay, here is my help for casters. Frost mage it was a little tough for me.
I used my Army ( garrison ability) Mirror Images, Lust and the saber banner also pre potted.
Had Rune buff and food buff. Also I went around and found players to Buff me , Pally buff warlock buff druid buff ect....
I died a few times trying to get this. He just Killed my army and mirror images like nothing.
( pre req's needed?)
I have killed every rare on the island, and im exalted with awakeners.
Go to the dark portal stand right outside use your ( epic) crystal it will port you too him every single time.
Good Luck for all your casters!
I killed him yesterday and here are some tips. You need to be exalted with order of awakened and have the Jungle Stalker achievement. I got ported first time I used master hunters crystal after reaching exalted but died to xemirkol because (1) he melees quite hard, (2) targets a nearby enemy and send a shadowcrash like spell that stuns when lands - you can side-step this, and (3) casts a strong frontal cone Carrion Swarm spell in whatever direction he's facing which can knockback- beware if you stand at the edge of platform. If you die its ok, you havent wasted your chance :)
I assume he has a respawn timer when he dies or resets casue it took me 3 tries on my server with no luck so I hopped to a german server before getting him. His phased area is next to the dam you destroy in the wod starting zone so I suppose if you wait there when you click it might help since crystal ports you to the closest rare in the vicinity.
If you have a bodyguard like Iliona she will tank him with no issues while you tunnel xemirkol, just sidestep the shadowcrash and the frontal cone.
DO NOT USE SHREDDER
! it will despawn him. The other call to arms abilities are fine. If you dont have a bodyguard or guardian it might be tougher. Good luck.
Now that each day more people will become exalted with all factions it is getting increasingly important that this guy is on a high respawntimer.
If you are exalted and the crystal ports you to another rare, don't bother to try again and hop to another realm next time it's off-cd.
This rare is really as hard as the others mentioned. Normally 2.6m HP aren't really scaring me, but Xemirkol hits like a truck and you need to make sure to avoid the void zones he lays all the time and make sure that you are standing between him and the wall to not get knocked off the platform.
Even using all my offensive and defensive cooldowns this guy very nearly killed me as a 698 Frost DK and I resorted to Death-Strike-spamming in the end, so since you have to fight him without help (Bodyguards aside) I assume he will be a hefty challenge for many people with little selfheal or tanking capabilities.
1) I got exalted with all the Tanaan factions a couple days ago.
2) I bought the crystal when I was revered.
3) I got Jungle stalker today.
So I have been trying like mad to get a port to Xemirkol. After ~5 hours of using the crystal on cd and reading while it was on cd, I finally found a low pop server. Garona. I got ported to Xemirkol and immediately sat up straight and put my game face on. I d/c'd. Upset a little, but with a lot of the comments I have read, you will just keep getting ported back to him until you kill him. Used it when the 15minutes were up and was ported to the Argosh the Destroyer. I will update when I get another cd.
Next attempt it backfired.
2 Hours later and have not been ported back to him. Used nearly on cd.
I speculate that he has a once a day spawn per server/phase. I have read a few posts that they were ported straight to him at daily reset. Maybe just luck, but with as many times as I have tried and either failed or got a different rare, it seems more likely this is the case to me.
Confirmed today this is
a solo phase as a Alliance druid phased in to me when I was getting ready to pull the mob.
If someone else phases in with you and you are not grouped the Achi will go to the 1st person who tags it. The tag is not shared like other rares.
This happened to me today with the druid on the other faction, he got the tag, we both helped kill him but he was the only person to get the achievement.
I also camped this rare all yesterday afternoon using the crystal on CD into the early hours of the morning and I finally saw him around 9am indicating he has around a 24h spawn time. Server hopping will def help.
To get this title
you must first:
Be Exalted with
Have completed the
After completing the above the rare mob
will be unlocked for you to find via the
Only If Xemikol is up will the crystal port you to him at 69.7,38.5 onto a platform overlooking the now broken dark portal. You will be phased into this area and given a debuff called
which will last for 10 minutes, loosing this debuff will take you out of his phase. You can reach the platform by foot or via Aviana's Feather however you will not see him.
Xemikol has 2.6mil health, has 4 main abilities and he can not be stunned or CC'd:
- This deals a knockback which will send you flying, if you get knocked back off the platform Xemikol will despawn and you will need to use the crystal to try again. You can dodge the knockbacks as he stands still to cast them.
- This deals damage to everyone in the area at around 70k, interrupt this cast!
- This places a void zone on the floor, if you get caught in the crash it will stun you for a few seconds.
- After the Shadow Crash it will leave a Shadow Zone, this ticks as shadow damage for around 14k a tick. If you get caught in the crash and stunned this will probably kill you.
Xemirkol also Melee hits at around 12k
SO.. stay on your toes, keep moving, avoid shadow crashes and shadow zones, move out his Carrion Blast cone when he casts it and good luck.
A few things to know.
If you die you will phase out, you can run back and retrieve your corpse but the debuff will be gone and you will need to use your crystal again to try and phase back in.
solo phased and other players can port in.
that if another player phases in and tags the boss then he will be the only person to get the achievement if you are not grouped together. The tag
shared like other zone rares.
Xemirkol will stay up on your server until someone kills him. If you died and had to wait to use your crystal again only to find that you have not been ported back to him next time around then someone has killed him while your crystal was on CD.
This rare has a very long respawn timer at around 24hours (although not confirmed as yet). If he is not up on your server then server hopping to some low pop realms will greatly increase your chances of finding him.
Good Luck and happy hunting
**From Feedback it may be easier to use the
and stand around the Dark Portal area as it can only teleport you to rares local to that area (500 yards). Make sure Steelsnout is not up and use the crystal, if Xermirkol is up it should port you to him instead of porting you all over the zone.
Got my achiev right now. And I can confirm tag is group shared. Got ported when the mob was pulled, group invited player who pulled him and we both got the achiev.
I just got this guy down today on Moon Guard. I play an assassination rogue with around 690 item level.
I died/was knocked off the platform at least three times before I got the hang of the fight and finally beat him. Every time I died/got knocked away, I returned to the platform immediately after using my Seeking Crystal (after the cool down period was up). I guess that I was lucky in this regard. I will note, however, that I did use my crystal while standing on his platform after I had failed. I'm not sure if this makes a difference or if no one else was trying for him during the time I was (9:00 to 10:00 AM server time).
He does not do a lot of damage other than the shadow crash and mind blast, and both are avoidable with interrupts and movement which makes this fight ALL ABOUT moving and interrupts. Avoid the shadow crash, move to the side for the carrion blast (knock back), and interrupt the mind blast, and you should be good! :)
ALSO, since people have been talking about use of the mechashredder removing you from his phase - I used Artillery Strike very effectively in this encounter! So this might be something to look into as an ability to bring with you.
Good luck everyone! :)!
Downed on Garona-US 1:22 pm Server
Intense due to nerves. Wiped once due to camera foolishness on my part.

MD a lot, mob seems quick to shift to the Hunter. Mend your pet regularly enough.
Go ahead and Stampede and 3x Artillery Strike, but what's gonna get it done is just you and your pet.
Watch for his casts, you can't afford to get stunned. Obviously don't put your back to the edge of his platform. Be careful with Disengage.
Other classes: no idea what to say for you, I recommend you jump on any group you can get saying Xemirkol or Predator.
Just to remind here that you will be phased out of Xermikol's realm and ineligible for the achievement if you die during the fight, even if one of your party members manage to survive and get the achievement. There is no way to combat ress as well during the fight as the corpse will be phased out.
And yes, you can do the fight in a party group and share the achievement if you are struggle soloing the NPC alone.
Is there any way of checking if Xemirkol is spawned on a particular realm prior to using the crystal or is it just random chance?
Considerations from a mage/caster perspective:
- do not treat this lightly, this ain't your typical WoW solo walk-in-the-park PvE
- the mob is hidden behind RNG, you might not get a second chance at it soon if you fail and get kicked off the realm you found it in, or it might get killed by someone else, so it will save you time killing it in the first attempt. Watch some videos and read carefully the advice in the posts here.
- the mob is hitting quite hard on cloth. I have about 345K HP at 703 ilvl, and it meleed me for about 16-18K, and abilities hit for 70-80K. I went low HP/panic mode quite fast.
- avoiding its AoEs is essential. You do not wanna be stunned. If you're a human, use the racial, if not, a PvP trinket or other abilities to get you out of CC will be handy. Getting kicked off the platform means game over for that attempt.
- if you're a mage with little to no self-healing, you want to have the mob tanked and off you for as long as possible so you can nuke it a bit, use Mirror Images, bodyguard and garrison ability.
- buff up/respec with whatever you can, preferably before you reach the area, or somebody else might pop in and tag the mob while you eating-->lost attempt (happened to me)
- good gear is nice, but it won't allow you to cheese the mob as a mage at this point in progression. This guy will kill you easily if you get hit by a few of its abilities.
Be prepared to spend quite a few hours and lose a few times (mostly due to getting knocked off, which is the most dangerous thing in this encounter), unless you're really lucky and can chain a few attempts by frequently finding the rare. This mob being spawned and available is the exception, not the rule. Took me a whole day, 3 failed attempts, one lost tag and 2 knock offs, until I finally got it. Have patience and keep trying. I'd say I found it once every 15-20 crystal uses or so.
Oh, and I'm really sorry to all the guys in the skirmishes I left alone :( I blame Blizzard with their stupid cooldown and item/encounter design.
At 45 uses since reaching exalted with Order of the Awakened and getting Jungle Stalker.
Have rotated my uses on all the different realms i can find, but so far nothing.
Most comments here are about getting to him on the first few uses, but I believe they are from the earliest 6.2 when so few people had the requirements met, that Xemirkol was likely to be up on some realm. Now that the people who have done dailies + used a few medallions meet the requirements, there is fierce competition to get him.
Edit: 200+ uses, no Xemirkol encountered.
Down today on Rexxar / Misha - US at 09:15am server time.
Beware his knockback. If you get knocked out of his phased area, you will have to try for him again. Soloing him is hard and I failed twice before making a group in finder and then duo'd him with a mage.
Video of my kill of this rare.
Really hectic fight focus on mechanics over dps!
Well, I have done
as well as I am exalted with Order of the Awakened and I wasn't teleported to Xemirkol. I did some realm swapping, nothing helped. Used it like 20 times and still no big guy so I think that theory with requirements isn't actuallu true, people were just lucky.
Edit: Now, I have all 3 Tanaan reps at exalted, tried another few times and still no Xemirkol.
Edit2: Atleast 30 realm hops and still no Xemirkol.
Edit3: Whoa, something new. I got a message that crystal pulses faintly. Everything looks like these requirements aren't true, people were just lucky.
Last night i was using my
on cooldown, like usual.
Then, in the early morning, i got the teleport to
After some tired and numb moves,
kicked me of the platform,
i used my
, to get fast on the platform again, but
I felt like crying, but i was thinking, don't lose heart little Druid.
The cooldown on
was gone, and i got the teleport again!
But, fore sure,
kicked me of his beautiful platform again!
No, no, no, i was devastated, my brain told me, yes you are verry tired,
kicked you twice from his nice deamon terrace.
And at that point, you know how i felt. A ray of hope was the lucky number three.
The third time is the charm, why
should give a failor like me not a third try?
And again for sure, i got the teleport a third time,
but now i was the Predator i used to be all the time!
is mine and now there is a more in the Jungel!
As we currently do not know for certain his spawn methods / times it may be good for people who have killed him to post below the day and time they killed him and in what circumstances to try and better understand it.
It may be a case of a random spawn once a day per server / instance but as there is little in the way of comments we still don't really know.
To anyone who has killed it, let us know below to see if we can work out a pattern.
I can confirm that Xemirkol has exactly a 24h long respawn timer. I found him yesterday at 13:30 but failed to obtain the kill. I tried again today @ 13:40 hoping that the theory was correct and indeed, there he was. Luckily I was more prepared this time, and managed to get the kill.
Happy hunting to all you Predators out there!
Edit: I now see that the respawn timer isnt exactly 24h long, but somewhere around that spot. I guess that in specifically my case it was 24h. Cheers!
if you were like me then you were expecting to get a rare spawn and instead were teleported here. confused and excited, you started to attack him only to be taken my surprise and knocked way the hell off the platform. you used aviana's feather to get back to him, wiser and with a better strategy in mind, only to be grasped with disappointment as he is no longer there.
welcome to the wowhead comments section of Xemirkol, fellow adventurer!
Yesterday at 20:08 ST @ Ragnaros EU he was killed and sadly i couldn't get the kill. Today at 17:48 i used my crystal and he was there (used it once before that so he must have spawned between 17:33 and 17:48 ST).
I killed it a first time yesterday @ 6:45 am (Hyja-EU)... I didn't get the achievement.
I killed it a second time today @ 4:50 am (Hyjal-EU) without using Artillery Strikes : I got the achievement this time.
It seems using Artillery Strikes make the achievement not working, at least for me.
About the respawn time, it seems to be less than 22 hours but more than 18 hours (I tried @ 0:30 am with no success).
The fight is not that hard. Kick every Mind Blast, dodge Carrion Blast & Shadow Crash and you will not take a lot of damage.
Achievement earned on this character :
Got it today @11:50 on ColinasPardas-EU.
Everyone good luck!
Also fellow Hunter's be prepared... I thought BeastMaster Easy Mode... but my pet got kicked down ._.
This is what I know so far: I've seen it spawn between 18h and 26h.
Not saying this is his spawn timer, but in Goldrinn-US I went with a friend yesterday, and while my friend got the achievement, my pet trolled me and I got carrion swarmed out of the platform.
He died exactly 12:53h pm. I was going to check the "exactly 24h timer theory". I spent the rest of the day using my cristal on cooldown (and sometimes even less, with the bug to reset it) and he didn't showed up and I went to sleep at 3:00 am.
Then, today, I woke up arround 10:05am and started using it on CD. When it was about 12:55h pm I was hoping he would be up because it was 24h from the last kill I saw. Nothing, he wasn't there. But I kept trying, everytime on CD. When it was 14:28h pm I got to him, and finally killed him. Arround 25:30h later.
At the very least I can confirm his respawn timer isn't exactly 24h. One thing I want to say and I can't stress how important this is: if you're a warlock or a hunter or you have some bodyguard tanking for you, BEWARE OF THE CARRION SWARM. Sometimes he just chooses to cast it on you instead of the tank or the pet/tank tries to avoid the puddle on the floor and turns Xemirkol to you.
The BEST position for any caster to stand is on the middle of the wall to HIS left (or the right wall from where YOU are teleported). I got Carrion Swarmed two times in that wall and he just lifted me up and I was back on the floor a couple seconds later.
so... never heard of the guy, I use my crystal and it brings me to him, to my surprise and confusion. When I see how much health he has, I list a LFG, get 4 people, none of them healers or tanks (mistake #1). My gear isn't all that great, I get pinned and then die in his AoE (mistake #2).
The party manages to kill him and I don't get credit for the achievement, and then to add insult to injury they can't even rez me because I am phased out. They all of course get the achievement and are very thankful to me for listing the group . At least somebody's happy.
I try running to my body and then realise I can't even get up there (mistake #3). So I rez at the GY and use my Avianna's Feather to get back on the platform, and there is nothing there, not even a body to loot. I now feel like i'm the victim of a practical joke. No loot, no achievement, and broke ass armor. tks Blizzard, you just ruined my Sunday.
Here is the fastest way to get to get the
Achievement if we all work together:
First, Download the Premade Filter Add-on and search for ?xemirkol ?predator ?xem (use the question marks feature as part of the add-on to search for all the terms independent of each other). Once you join a group where he is up, you will phase into that server and have a 100% chance to be ported to him using
Next, If you find
, make a Premade group. You can get the achievement in a raid, so don't be afraid to turn your group into a raid. Be sure that when you pull him, that you have a clear tank and that all pets and followers are not taunting or he will use
and knock people off.
Finally, remember that you cannot be summoned to the phase, so you have to use
to get to him (and have the
Achievement and be exalted with
). Once you get ported to him, you will have the
debuff which is only 10 minutes, and since the crystal has a 15 min cooldown, joining a group with a cooldown on your crystal may result in you missing the kill.
So just to clarify...
I cannot use
to fly up there or i will not be in the correct phase?
Can u be summoned there?
I cannot use
to get to him it has to be
Thank you! I just want clarification on these... and why do you need Exalted with
if you can get the hunter crystal at revered?
I got the title this morning and decided to test whether or not it was possible to port to Xemirkol again after having killed him already. Found a group that was porting to him on a confirmed server, but my crystal took me to the Iron Front instead. So if anyone thought maybe they could help a friend with the kill after having already completed the achievement, it seems you won't be able to.
There are a few cracks in the wall in the room where Xemirkol spawn: Make sure not to be pushed into one of those as it will bring you out of the phase and you'll lose the ability to see him.
Just tried this with a group and once we were near completion I phased out. We thought the
debuff refreshed upon combat. But it seems it does not. Ah well, in for another long wait.

Vignettes of Tanaan Jungle
Killed about 03:30 am on Argent Dawn EU
So I took a look at Wowhead's Vignette's guide and realized that yeah, the master crystal was pretty ridiculous porting me all over the zone. I spent the entire day after I hit the requirements server hopping and using the crystal only to end up at rares I didn't give a hoot about or to get the dreaded ~no rares available~ message. So, I picked up the blue version and set sail for the Steelsnout area like the guide suggested. Tried my home server and got a no-no message, so I used the arena trick to clear the cooldown.
This is when things get interesting. I then server hopped to Smolderthorn, which according to Cross-Realm Assist ported me to Nathrezim. Then I used the crystal again and BOOM. THERE HE WAS. OH MY GOD. KNEES WEAK ARMS ARE HEAVY MOM'S SPAGHETTI ALREADY ETC.
I respec from Insanity to Mindbender figuring that I can fade onto it, giving me some leeway to heal up if I need it and time move out of bad. I also take Body and Soul over feathers since I'll be shielding on CD anyhow, all while I'm shaking like a leaf, and then I just bust out the Mindbender and Artillery Strike and go ham on the mother.
.......... until he blows me into a crack in the wall and he despawns. Okay, no worries--leave group, arena trick, rejoin group, crystal again and BAM there he is just waiting for me. Except. You know. I die. Because I'm too nervous to get it together and pay attention to mechanics. And then I rez like halfway across the zone to the point where there's no point in even trying to get back to my body, and thus I opt to take rez sickness.
At which point I get kicked! So I whisper the leader, pleading my case and begging them to take me back--which they did! So! I just end up waiting off the rez sickness, situating myself back at Steelsnout, and praying that no one else gets there first.
I also take the opportunity to switch out one of my trinkets for Mark of Supreme Doom. I'm convinced this is what turned the tide. Clearly, tertiary stats are the way of the future. But no really, the leech wound up accounting for 15% of my heals and it was really close by the end for me. It's definitely something to consider in my humble opinion.
But yeah, he went down around 5:20AM CST and it was all thanks to the kindness of that cool hunter from Smolderthorn--you know who you are :) Ditch the purp crystal, go for the blue! And server hop, server hop, server hop! You'll get him!
EDIT: I just used the crystal on a server where he was confirmed to be up and I got the no rares available message, so it seems you can't port to him if you've already killed him. Just thought I'd add that.
Just tried getting to him at 03.00 am when the daily reset on my realm and cross realm with both blue and epic crystal, resetting it with arena skirmishes, all with no luck, this is really just a "roll a dice" and be lucky rare. tried on the realm confirmed to have been killed 24 hours ago so the statement 24 hour respawn is not true
Just got my Predator title after 2 failed attempts. Thankfully he was still there for my third. :)
Downed on Shadowmoon at 7:50 pm server time.
I just killed him finally! After using the crystal, on a weekend no less, I was waiting on the loading screen to see which useless rare I got ported to this time, lol. But here he was, after hundreds of times searching I finally found him!
The fight was easy. Of course I was on my 711 ilvl hunter with her mythic ring which I'm sure helped. I feel like I could have had a much lower ilvl and not had an issue solo'ing however.
I went BM, avoided purple puddles, and made sure to be behind him when he cast carrion swarm, which he only did once or twice during the fight. I was expecting my pet to get punted off and was ready to resummon but it didn't happen.
When he was around 20% hp a feral druid joined the party (realm hopping like I was) and helped get him down but by then he was in execute range and it would have been no problem to solo.
After weeks of searching for this guy I was surprised at how simple the fight was. I was expecting it to be more difficult.
I'm also surprised at the lack of groups in lfg for this guy. I only attempted a solo because I was realm hopping. Had I found him on my realm I'd have made a group and helped others get the kill. Please, if you see him take a few seconds to put up a group and help others get their kill too. Just don't wait too long because someone else can easily snipe it. It's most definitely a party tag and he is, apparently, easy to solo. Esp now that people are getting their legendaries and ilvl's are going up.
This Morning I killed it @ Chamber of aspects - EU @ 6:45 server time. Pretty easy boss if you follow his tactics.
- Dont stand in his frontal cone: Garrison Swarn, it will face you out.
- Avoid all other @#$%
- IT can be done in group and all get the achievement ( I invited a few members from LFG ).
I can confirm that Xemirkol spawns RIGHT after a realm reset. On 7/28/15 at ~8:33AM server time on Arthas-US I got the kill after immediately logging in and using my crystal as soon as the server came back online.
Note: The tag for this mob is not shared. When I zoned in, there were two others with me and we formed a party and were going to open a group in dungeon finder for it - but then a druid ported in and pulled Xemirkol immediately. We attacked Xem, but he was still grey to us until we invited the druid to the party and re-tagged.
Just for clarification and confirmation on the spawn and other information of
- Server restarts do reset his spawn.
- You MUST be in the shadow realm (have the Nether Trap debuff) and tag him to earn credit, just being near Xemirkol in a group doesn't give credit.
WILL teleport you to the platform if and only if he is not dead (it prioritizes him over any other rare in Tanann). If you are teleported to another rare then that means either:
1) You do not meet the prerequisites for teleportation (Must have Exalted with
2) He hasn't respawned yet.
- The title can't be used on any characters that are not level 100.
- You can earn credit while being in a raid group (so be a bro and put up a Xemirkol group on Group Finder so that everyone can earn the title that has the prerequisites).
- Always put yourself between him and a wall or you will regret. Carrion Swarm has crushed many dreams.
From these recent comments already done, i can confirm that it's true and got my experience:
- Xemirkol, when he dies, has a VERY LONG respawn timer, not confirmed how long yet.
- Right aftter each Server Restart / Shutdown, he will spawn (like every Wednesday).
- If you're fast enough and use the crystal as the servers are up again, you'll have a chance to fight him.
- If someone else is already fighting him, to get the tag and credit for the kill, you must be in the same group, same faction of course - oposite faction wont give you any credit.
How it worked for me:
Before te server restart, i used my Aviana's Feather to get to his spawn spot and right after the server restart i used the Epic crystal there (not sure if it is a must, i dont think so).
Got teleported in front of him but had someone else fighting him, from a different faction. Shooted Xemirkol, for the tag, did not work, so i waited (forgive me, but i waited - without interfere - for his failiure, to get my turn). As the alliance player died, Xemirkol resets and then i got my tag.
Hard fight, even with iLvL 686. Avoid to turn your back to the edge, avoid those purple pods on the ground.
If you're like me and play a hunter, MD a lot and be prepared for some pet moving / recall pet as he may put your pet LOS at the walls or knocking him down from the platform. That may cause the fight to reset.
Dont forget that you only have 10 minutes (Debuff time) to kill him, when you use the crystal. So try to play safe and focus for a decent dps.
Killed him this morning. Not much to add in terms of requirements to port to him, it is pretty well covered in other comments.
I was fortunate to get 2 attempts. Like many I was using the crystal for days to no avail. When I saw the debuff on my screen, I was so excited I rushed in without any planning or thinking. Halfway through the fight I got knocked over the wall by Carrion Blast and lost the debuff. I was extremely fortunate to get ported back when my crystal came off CD. The wait was excruciating.
My advice for those still trying is to be extremely prepared going in for the first attempt. Do NOT expect to have multiple chances and do NOT get overexcited like I did. Remain calm and stay focused. The fight is simple, but harshly punishes any mistakes. Awareness is the key. Prioritize dodging the Carrion Blasts and Shadow Crashes. Getting hit by them once is devastating. Don't assume the wall will ALWAYS stop you from being knocked off by Carrion Blast like I did. Just dodge it completely, it is not worth the risk. Interrupt Mind Blast IF you can do so without exposing yourself to a Shadow Crash/Shadow Zone. Keep your defensive CDs up for emergencies.
just killed him on feathermoon at 2:32 server time, strange that I woke up from a dream that he was up and logged into game to find him :) maybe too much WoW time? lmao
Killed at 4pm Server Time on Moonglade today
He can be found using
, e.g. while standing on his platform or nearby.
Xemirkol killed on Shandris around 1:20PM realm time.
So I finally ported into Xemirkol. There was an Orc Warrior standing there before I arrived. Before I can even click an augment rune to get a little buff, three more Horde port in, buff each other and go for the kill. Xem is 'greyed out' to me, so I wont get credit, but I take a few shots anyway towards the end to speed up my misery at watching him die.
I watch as all four Hordies get the title and leave. I don't mind losing to the opposing faction, I don't mind RNG. There's so many things we have to just accept in this game but really? At least make it open tag to whomever ports in.
Just killed him on Thrall-US at 3:30 PM EST
Got it today at 1:30. Also right after kill i had try to find realm hop groups for some stuff and saw at least 3 more groups in PG during next 10min. So probably his respawn timer was lowered a bit. Also looks like he have
. Thats mean if somebody pulled and you are not in his group - you do not get achievement and title. I gathered raid during first 5 min of my debuf. And all of us got achieve and title after kill. But one paladin who just teleported before kill (like 15 seconds before) and wasn't in my group didn't get it and whined a lot about that. So be careful when you forming group. Geared @#$%^&* can steal your title because it aint really problem to kill boss solo even for clothers.
gotten to him 3 times. still don't have credit for the kill:
1st time I died as a noob. no achieve.
2nd time my 2 man party got him to half life and then we got ganked by an opportunistic paladin. no achieve.
3rd time I couldn't form the party in time; while i'm waiting for people to figure out how to get to the platform or who/what Xemirkol/Predator actually is, my zone buff disappears, I phase out, and another party takes the kill and achievement.
my motivation for using the crystal again is sinking off the chart
Not too hard, just don't get knocked out.
Found him on my hunter and got knocked off the edge. Managed to recover the situation with disengage to get back onto the platform but he still despawned... Lesson learned for next time.
Decided to post my advices here, after reading some of the comments:
- Everyone here have already read what the prerequisites are to GET TO Xemirkol, so I'm not going to repeat them;
- I would rather try to kill him with a pet tanking class (hunter, warlock), rather than any other. Believe me, its faster and less painfull this way, IF you're going on the kill alone. 3 friends (yeah 3) have tried with their badass Pally, or DK or W/E class, and took many tries to get it (or didn't get it at all), because of the fight's issues (stun, carrion, etc). I got it on first try, after read what abilites he had, and after looking if he was up.
- As others have stated, wednesday may be the best day to look for him, its a day after the reset (his respawn resets with the maintenance too), and early on the morning (as to most of other rares) may be your best shot. From midday to midnight, your luck to find him is even scarcer.
What I did was to go where the rare Boar spawns, a bit north from Volmar, kill it if its up, walk a bit east, and use the 500 yard crystal (that is one of the closest spots to him, and other rares spawn farther away). When I found him, I put camouflage, Sent my pet to station behind him (between him and the wall), and started the fight, moving myself from the mid right part of the platform, to the mid left, to drop the purple stuff that stuns you. This way, with Xemirkol facing my pet and the wall (and his back to me), I never had to worry about Carrion swarm, only keep a track on his cast on the stun on me, before it landed.
So out of nowhere I used the crystal today and was teleported to xemikol. Exceited about this event I made a group and shouted at general chat.
Soon a hunter would show up and pull the boss. This is where things went weird. I was trying to explain to him that the tag was not shared, that he should invite me (i sent him invites he for some reason first did not accept). It went bluffy and we got thrown off the platform. When the crystal came off cooldown he was dead.
So story short. If you see him look for a save spot at he wall and start sorting stuff out.
I am more or less pissed that I tried to share him, instead of taking a quite kill which most probably would have kept me focused enough to get the achievement.
Next I think blizzard made a mistake by changing mechanics on this mob while all other rare mobs have shared tags.
I'm not a happy camper. After many attempts at getting this guy with the crystal, I finally got to him after a server restart. A hordie ported in and pulled. Which meant it was grey to me and there was no way the hordie could invite me to share the kill.
It's a terrible idea to make this rare different from the others in the sense that it's not a shared kill.

Others have covered the requirements to be able to port to his location, as well as the fight mechanics. These are some of the ways I made the kill easier.

, the fight was tough for me. I was unable to consistently avoid Xemirkol's various attacks, and got knocked off the platform twice (with death and loss of the instance as the result). Neither of these times was Xemirkol available when the CD was up on the crystal. Yeah, I'm a noob.
Although the shaman's
, this taunt wasn't sufficient to keep Xemirkol's interest. I tried using a bodyguard as well, and that required some trial and error. From past experience I knew that neither Delvar nor Leorajh would either be survivable or have sufficient aggro to taunt the mob. I tried Tormmok, but his taunt wasn't enough either. Finally, I pulled Defender Illona off the bench and leveled her to epic. I tested Illona's taunt on various rares, and it is outstanding. She holds aggro like a champ, and with plate armor she can handle almost anything.
On my third, and successful, attempt, I lit Xemirkol up with Illona and my earth elemental. They held aggro so successfully that I only had to move once to avoid a pool of his purple spewage. The fight lasted about 80 seconds, so I threw out my
to finish him off. Illona was hardly touched, although my earth elemental took a beating.
I did not use
, which is my zone perk for Tanaan, but that was only because I forgot about it. Others have said that it is safe to use artillery, and that Xermikol will not despawn if you use it.
Just an FYI, if you die and run back to the platform and rez, you will not be in the same phase and will not see him anymore. I mistook the size of the shadow crashes (they are larger than the graphic) and got stunned trying to minimize movement.
I killed him today on Drakkari-US server(15 / aug / 2015), and missed a kill on Quel'thalas server. All the info in this post is acurate.
Im letting you know here that he will spawn:
On Quel'Thalas-US server tomorrow between 8:00 AM and 9:00 AM realm time.
On Drakkari-US sever tomorrow between 9:30 AM and 10:30 AM realm time.
Got him today but it was very close. How i did it was i had two machines both with PGF (Link below). The reason for two machines was because i wanted to do stuff on main account, and if a group came up i could just leave what i was doing on my main account and join.
Anyway a group came up i quickly quit what i was doing on main account and made my way. I then used the blue crystal to reach the boss when i was at his spawn location.
I very nearly missed him.
Here is a video
Not sure if this is know, but you don't even have to hit the boss for the title! Just be in the group with the debuff (so you can see him) and you will get the title.
Happy hunting folks.
Just got this kill at 1.43am GMT+8, US-Barthilas.
Fight was pretty easy and took about 90 seconds as a 713 Unholy DK with a 711 resto druid, and he didn't hit very hard, but one
very important thing
I have to mention is the
Please note that if you plan to help other people in Tanaan get the achievement, do watch the timer on the debuff as it only lasts 10 mins and you get ported out of the area once the timer is up.
We made the mistake of waiting too long for a pug and ended up getting ported out just before the kill. Luckily for us he was still up when we re-ported back to him.
Good luck and happy hunting!
This may be interesting. I just ported to him using my Master Hunter's Seeking Crystal. A second or two after I ported someone else also arrived using his crystal, we grouped up, killed him and both got the title. I had already failed (on previous days) to kill him and it was certainly easier in a group!
Just killed this guy a few minutes ago on my warlock, I don't think this is mentioned yet so here it is. If you are doing this on a pet class and the pet will be tanking for you, be careful on how you position your pet. When he casts carrion swarm he will point it at your pet, and your pet WILL get knocked back just like you would. You want Xemirkol to be facing the wall on the platform instead of the open space. My pet was knocked toward the open side too far and the boss started resetting.
Wasted a bunch of time just server hopping on his platform, today I landed on the platform and used my Hunter's Seeking Crystal and it phased me into a spawned Xemirkol. Don't bother wasting time server hopping.

Little advice: Use
near his spawn point. IF he is alive, you be teleported right away. If not, you won`t move since the random zone is smaller and you get less chance to be teleported to another rare. I had

- Your typical single-target reflectable spell, reflect it if you can else just interrupt it, doesn't deal much damage.
- This is the deadly one, he'll fire a cone-shaped wave in front of himself that knocks you out of the map if it hits, no spells can be used while you're in the air. Blink, charge, leap, etc. are all rendered useless and even if you have your back faced to the wall, he'll still knock you out of the map (it happened to me twice).

Good luck hunting, Predators-to-be!
Was running around skinning & killing all the rares in Zoramarsh & randomly checked pre-made custom groups & someone posted that Xemirkol was up so I joined group & used crystal & sure enough it ported me to his platform.
Popped stampede, garrison ability (Call to Arms,) ring & nuked him down w/the other people in group. Killed & got 'Predator' cheev.
This was around 7:15am via realm hopping.
In total it took me around
5 days of intense rare-killing on a high pop. realm

Can someone confirm if the Title <predator> is Account Wide?
So, today I got mine kill and title. Here is link to my character profile that I got it with:
Before I went to chase mob for title first have done / completed following:
1. Raised all Tanaan reps on exalted (just to be extra safe).
2. Killed all Tanaan rares at least once (not including rares from latest flying patch, just to be extra safe again).
4. Waited for weekly server reset (one that is done every Wednesday) that was announced for today to happen between 05:00 - 06:00.
So I woke up at 04:55 and 3 minutes later was in game waiting for reset to happen and after reset entered in game at about 05:40. Used
same moment and BAM, he was there waiting. Quickly made premade group for anyone else wanting this kill, put feast and tent for extra buffs for group, and with about 4 mins remaining on phase shift buff we started fight that ended 20 seconds later. Everyone happy and ready for work <3
Best of luck to everyone else that still do not have it :)
With the increased competition for Xemirkol's spawn and his long respawn time, I found that the weekend is a bad time to try to reach him, unless you are able to attempt him in the dead of night.
I got him during the week, between 7 and 8am realm time. This might be a good option for those who do not spend their nights gaming.
Be aware that morning grogginess affects the fight. I got knocked of his platform twice because my mind was half asleep and too excited to find him spawned. The third attempt - no coffee required! - was successful:
Stay calm and avoid Carrion Blast by moving to his side. Finally, if you are lacking in self heals, interrupting his Mind blast is crucial!
Just killed him on Dragonblight server US at 2:15 am on September 11, 2015. Don't know if this might be helpful to anyone but it just might.
Killed on Aggramar on 9-12-15 @ 5:35pm.
I used my crystal on my priest and was ported to him. I have a macro I use for general to let people know he's up to get a group, I also make a group listing in the group finder. I converted it to a raid when we had more people trying to join. Unfortunately had several people in the group who got ported to other rares, probably because they didn't meet all the requirements to get sent to him. By the time we got everyone up to him who could get to him we were down to 2 minutes on the buff. We killed him and at least 8 of us got the title.
If you are looking to kill him, watch the group finder. I have a couple other accounts to do this on, (two accounts done, two to go). If I see him up I always make a group.
I don't know if you can get ported to him if you already have the title, so if anyone can let us know that info that would be great. I do still use my crystal constantly on the character that had the title and she's never gotten ported back up to him, but that could just be bad timing.
I was keeping track of the times I've seen him (took 4 tries to get him on the one account) and he does seem to have a respawn time of around 24-27 hours.
My two peeps who have the title (two different accounts)
Thought I would add. Both Cathline and Ayizan have the Jungle stalker achievement and are exalted with the Order of the Awakened
Just commenting here to confirm that
Hunter's Seeking Crystal
does work perfectly for locating Xemirkol.
I started camping east of
at around 4am on a Sunday morning. Kill Steelsnout if it is up and is showing as a skull on minimap. I used my main char on my current server, a second char on a premade, then logged on a third char standing close to the center for the Oil Champions while waiting on CDs (they were dying quickly despite the late hours).
I got lucky and found Xemirkol at around 7am. Since I found him on my main char which was the only one having finished the
achievement, I was unable to confirm if a character without the achievement would be able to find him.
The tag is shared to the first person who hits it and their group which made me miss out on the first one I saw which was being killed by another player however I managed to server swap to another server where he was up while still on the platform. This server's version wasn't being fought but was still showing he was tapped so I returned to my original server to find that Xemirkol had respawned.
Not sure if he had respawned because of time or because I had re-appeared.
- Xemirkol tapped to Horde Rogue
- I finished Xemirkol after Horde Rogue got knocked off, didn't get credit
- Phased off server and back on and Xemirkol was back up and I got the achievement! :D
Once again, blizz continues to screw things up, I was knocked out of the area by something that I couldn't even see coming at me and lost the chance to kill him, months of waiting gone in just a couple of seconds. Blizz, fix this crap, please?
While phased, do not, I repeat DO NOT use your garrison ability button if you have the mechashredder. It will automatically unphase you and you will NOT get credit for the kill or get the achievement or title. Learned this the hard way today.
Things I have learned today;
One, even if you're in a group, you will not get an achievement if you die mid-fight.
Two, if an oppiste-faction player tags him, then dies, if his name is greyed out you will not get credit.
Blizz, why is this so darn difficult/precise to get? The debuff should stay through death with how insanely hard it is to get from the start!
Is there ANYWAY at all to tell if hes spawned outside of using the 15 min cd item? This is getting really frustrating just trying to find a server where hes spawned.
Avoid Carrion Blast at all costs. There's a very good chance either Xemirkol's health will reset or you lose your debuff if you get knocked up into the air and against the wall of the keep, even if you don't get blown off the keep. It's that annoying mechanic that made me have to do it three times.
Just a note that camping his spawn point (69, 38) doesn't work. He won't appear unless you teleport to his spawn point via
. I went to his spawn point this morning and he wasn't visible, so I hit my
and I was immediately teleported about 10 yards across the platform and there he was. The fight wasn't hard as an ilvl 694 BM Hunter with a bodyguard. My pet easily soaked up all the damage. I had to avoid the stuff on the floor a couple of times. I used all my CDs. The fight took about 90 seconds.
Btw - I've used my crystal a few dozen times since getting all the prerequisites done and this is the first time I've been ported to him.
Looks like if you have killed this rare before you can't port to it again atleast on the character that killed it.
I tried to help a friend kill it but twice the Seeking Crystal ported me else where (even though I was on his platform)
There were tons of xemirkol groups on premade after realm resets.
Joined one, used Seeking crystal and teleported to phased location where boss and party leader was waiting. We waited for all, tanked it near wall (
for not to thrown away
), and earned the achievment. Everyone in party who attacked the boss and not thrown away earned it.
Can confirm his respawn timer being about 27 hours.. Tried him yesterday right at server restart, lost and had an ally mage kill him in front of me... at 9:51am... i used the cristal several other times yesterday and nothing..
Today i tried again precisely at 9:51am, and some minutes later (reseting crystal cd on arena skirmishes) and then again hourly after.
At 12:51pm, he was up. Killed him and got the achiev.
I was waiting for a friend to join, and after about ten minutes it kicked me out of his phase, which made it look like he despawned. I just had to wait until my
15-minute cooldown was up, then got back into the phase with him.
This could be an issue if you form a groupfinder group and spend some time waiting for people to get there...you wouldn't want to be kicked out of the phase, crystal on cooldown, while the rest of the group kills him!
Stay away from the wall for god's sake.
If you trust the wall to keep you in area there is a big chance you can still be thrown away by the end of the fight. If you do what i say you will get it on first try.
Being thrown away by
3 times (Two of them from cracks on the wall) and finally soloing it on 4th time, i will tell you the trick.
He stays still while he casts
. So all you need to do is keeping an eye on casts and moving to other direction through him if you are a melee. I soloed him with my 697 ilvl Blood DK, he doesn't hit hard as long as you avoid
. You can also interrupt
if you play a class that doesn't have OP healing like a Blood DK.
Now Get to da Choppa!
I just want to share my experience, which might be unusual, while killing this rare.
At first try, he knocked me and ofc disappeared.
I want to point out that this part is the reason I placed this comment, which was an interesting experience for me and maybe could work for you as well:
I went to the same location and used the Crystal again when its cd was over:
He was still there.
I'm not sure if this is usual or not but after 4 more fails (means 1 hr), everytime I used the Crystal at "where he spawned", he still appeared there.
I guess, this means you can use the Crystal as long as he's alive. I've been trying to kill him between 05:00-06:00 AM (EST) which also might be the result of less crowded server times.
As a shadow priest (705 ilvl but most of them healing gear sadly), I couldn't manage to solo kill him.
I created a cross-realm premade grp and we managed to kill him as 1 lock and priest.
(The other party member, a monk, sadly knocked by him and lost the debuff which was required to kill Xemirkol.)
Another interesting thing was, the other 2 party members used the Crystal at the same spot he spawned, just like I've been doing during last 1 hour and they got teleported to Iron Harbour (and some other random locations.)
In the end, me and the lock killed him, but this experience made me ask a lot of questions.
I will be glad to see you share that if similar things happened to you, or can confirm that the Crystal still works till he is dead, or if you have an explanation about why other players were teleported somewhere else even though we used the Crystal at the same time and spot.
Apologies for long comment and some grammar/spelling mistakes (since I haven't slept yet).
(I will check them later again)
Thank you for your time for reading (and your contributions) in advance.
Please feel free to comment if similar things happened to you before,
so we can spread the word.
Have fun and good luck all
Finally got my Kill tonight - not sure which realm it was on (one of the low pop Portuguese realms) using group finder. I was around the Hellfire Citadel area and used my Master Hunter's Seeking Crystal which ported me to his platform.
At 699 ilvl on my spriest he was an easy kill. I stayed close so I could literally just sidestep the carrion blast frontal cone as he was casting. He takes a second or two to cast it so you have time to move. Interrupted the mind blasts, stayed out of purple pools - easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Happy it happened today as earlier I missed him by seconds on my own realm (Draenor EU) only to discover a pair of shoulders and a group of players flying away.
If anyone is interested, the kill on Draenor was near enough to 13:30pm game time but as there are realm restarts tomorrow morning this may be a moot point.
Good luck peeps!
Edit: Just to reiterate a point made previously: If you don't want to wait for the CD on your crystal to reset, just join a pvp arena and then leave. Yes, it's kind of sucky thing to do but it does work.
Finally got him at Wednesday 4:93AM ST on Kazzak EU, one of most populated realms. I was supposted to use the item after weekly server restart, but I said to myself "lets use it now, maybe he is up".
Use late times folks, it will help you. Good luck!
SAVE YOUR GOLD!
You do NOT need
to find Xemirkol, just use
at his platform in Tannan and make sure that
is dead or at least not up.
I have submitted proof of this in a screenshot.
Just killed him on Sylvanas - high populated server, around 5:05 p.m. - info that will be useful to those checking wowhead today prolly.
As I heard, spawn time around 6 hours, and I would say that the info is true, because I got ported to him the other day around 11 a.m., but I didn't manage to kill him, forgot to respecc and I attacked him with rejuvenation :D :D
So, this time I made group, and about 20 ppl joined in few seconds and we beat the s*** out of him :D
Damage not big, my gear is nothing special, but he does pools on the floor, and if he comes near to you, you will get stunned (in the pool prolly), watch for knock back ( I was around the wall the whole time), when u see him casting, move behind him, dun stand in front of him.
Garrison abilities are allowed; I have call to arms.
And also, I used blue version of the crystal, and used it on the rare pig spot (making sure the pig is dead) - can't be 100% sure, but some of ppl who joined the raid, used the epic version and said that they were teleported somewhere else - I can't say was it the crystal, or maybe they didn't kill other rares before joining the group.
The whole raid got achievement, and no loot as expected :)
GL to all of you!
Very funny situation. Usually I don't like to walk, I like to ride or fly. So I was teleported to this mob, then my fingers automatically activated my usual flying mount to get closer to the mob, I raised into the air, and guess what? I went out of the Nether trap and phased out off the mob. Had to wait till the cool-down of the crystal.
Conclusion - don't mount up to get closer.
You Don't Need To Be Exalted With Order Of The Awakened To Get The Title Or Kill That Rare My Brother Just Got His And He Is Revered With Them
I didn't know who this NPC was when my Hunter's Crystal delivered me to his location. Seeing he was Level 102, I formed a Premade Custom group and in a few minutes had a big crew. We attacked and it was a short fight. I got the title Predator - not sure anyone else got anything out of it.
If you want to do this faster, simply use your crystal to see if he's up or not. If he isn't, queue yourself for an arena skirmish, get wrecked, then leave. Your crystal will be reset, and you can find a new server to use the crystal on. Rinse and repeat until you have your title! I had been hitting my crystal on cd for about 2 days, and it took me all of a half hour to get him using this method.
So, you've done
and you've reached exalted with the
. And you've been using
literally every 15 minutes, and the thing just keeps either "pulsing faintly" and being a general failure because Xemirkol is dead on this server, or actually succeeding at... porting you to a rare you haven't killed today yet. No matter how much realm hopping you do, the damn thing never gets you to this guy and you're getting a little desperate, killing every single rare you come across and jumping to servers with increasingly exotic names.
I've got news for you :
2. Log in at server reset. Check the note on the main menu of the game a couple of days before the scheduled reset (Tuesday for US, Wednesday for EU), it tells you when the reset is going to happen. Usually between 5:00-6:00 am on Wednesday for EU servers when there is no maintenance.
3. Either kill
or make sure it isn't up, as it should be the only other rare in range of
4. Go stand on the platform near 69.0,38.2. It's the platform overlooking the pond that used to be the Blackrock camp in the opening Tanaan scenario, and it's where Xemirkol is phased.
6. Thank me later. (If the crystal pulsed faintly, it's because someone was faster than you. This is literally the only option.)
The crystals seem to follow this priority once you fulfill both requirements of
and exalted with the
1. Teleports you to Xemirkol if he isn't dead on the server you are currently on. Which he most likely totally is, don't kid yourself. As more and more people are completing the Tanaan reps, more people will be killing him and he seems to have a very long respawn timer. Personally, I've tried using
a good 20-30 times after fulfulling both requirements, and I never got ported to him, so I'm not actually sure he's top priority, but reading other posts make me believe so. He seems to respawn on all servers at server reset.
2. Teleports you to a rare you haven't killed today yet, in range of the crystal you are using. (All Tanaan rares reset daily, at the same time as daily quests. They only give you loot once a day, and if you're eligible for loot, the rares will appear as a skull on your minimap and NPCscan will ring instantly if you have it installed. Once you've killed a rare, you won't see it anymore on your minimap and NPCscan will stay quiet next time you see it.)
3. If neither Xemirkol nor any rares you haven't killed today yet are alive and in range, the crystal "pulses faintly" and the teleport fails.
, the only rare close by, and using
near Xemirkol effectively gets rid of step 2 without needing you to hunt down every rare every day. Gets rid of the pointless false hope you may have when you see a loading screen.
Don't forget to use all 3 charges of
as it's a huge DPS boost. If you find the fight hard to solo because of a lack of gear/mobility/self-healing, again, fighting him at server reset is a good idea as there is usually at least one Xemirkol group in the group finder. If not, make one !
Killing grants Feat of Strength
and title .
I just used the Crystal to get a rare to kill, and the first one is this dude.
But to bad, cause when he was with like 25% HP, he mind blasted me and pushed me to the wall the's up against and THIS THING resetted him and put me out of the area ¬¬
Based on his aggro text, which I have submitted a screenshot of, and will post here, I can confirm that having the
is a requirement to find him.
Xemirkol says: So, you think yourself a hunter, using that little toy to lead you around? Let me show you true strength....
Killed him on Drak´Thul EU at aroud 5 AM after reaching exalted with the Order of the Awakened. I realized there is no point trying to find him during the day since he has such a long respawn and many people on my server are still trying to get the title.
From my observations all you need is the epic crystal, if he is up, you WILL get ported to him no matter what assuming you meet the requirements.
There was an alliance warrior already fighting him so I had no choice but to reschedule his title for another day. If you are reading this, I am sorry.
After finding him, and killing him yesterday, I can confirm the following information, based on my own and some guildies' actions:
You MUST have completed
on his platform will yield no result if you don't have the achievement.
on his platform if you have the achievement DOES work. I did not test whether or not it would be a guaranteed port if
is alive and you haven't killed him the same day (I killed him before I tried to use the crystal)
If you have the
, it will always portal you to Xemirkol, if and only if you have completed
, and Xemirkol is alive.
The 2 of us that were able to kill him, were both exalted with Order of the Awakened. One person that was also Exalted, but didn't have
was unable to port to the platform. We didn't know anyone with the achievement, but without Exalted Order of the Awakened, so the theory that it's one of the requirements could not be tested by us.
Just an FYI, I popped my legendary ring during fight and it phased me out. Just be wary of that.
I killed Xemikrol when he was first available and wanted to go back and help my wife (who got blown off the edge on my kill) kill him today when she said he was up. I couldn't port to him with any crystal at all. I opened a ticket and talked to a GM about this and they said it was how the devs wanted it.
TLDR After you kill him once you cannot do it again on that character.
Killed today on moonglade-EU after our server and a few others came back up during the day after going down unexpectedly. killed at 5:10pm servertime I made a custom group brought a few people in to get it also. Alliance had just wiped on him, would of helped them but he is not cross faction tagable. awarded predator title and feat of strength, very cool stuff :)
I just got the title November 5, 2015 and my hands are still shaking!
Got punted 3 times against the wall and thankfully I ran back to him asap. Luckily he was also casting some other spell so I went back to within target range before he would finish ( I guess that's what saved me from him resetting).
At 1%, along with my team, he punted me and a few others but with our last breath of life and within range, we threw whatever range ability we had and finished him off while flying away from the platform.
We got the title in mid air before landing on the water by the Dark Portal (I landed on the rock...).
Good adrenaline rush.
As a shadow priest I used my bodyguard Illona. I was able to pop out of shadow and heal her, but unfortunately she died when he was down to about 20%. I did however, manage to kill Xemirkol with lots of kiting.
This was my third try. The first time I got him unexpectedly and I was not prepared and he killed me. The second time I tried to be slick and use my garrison ability. That's a no-no. It phased me out.
Today, the third try I was ready. I'm 701 equipped and like a dummy I forgot to equip my legendary ring...grrrr. I ate my Felmouth Frenzy, popped a flask and a rune and started the fight. I did get stunned three times, but was able to heal myself up after the stun. I popped out of shadow a few times to heal Illona up. I also used my Shadowfiend and Vampiric Touch. As I was running I kept hitting him with Shadow Word: Pain because this is all I can do while moving. By the time he was dead I was getting a low mana warning.
Glad that's over and done with.
Went to Tanaan today with a bunch of browser tabs open and a twitch stream running in the background in source quality, lagging me out quite a bit. Figured I'd kill one rare then leave so I used my crystal and was really surprised to see completely unfamiliar surroundings, then noticed the giant dreadlord, and then finally realized what was going on.
I really should have tabbed out of the game and exited my browser because I was lagging bad and got caught in a void zone thing once, I was on my BM Hunter and strafed as soon as it appeared below me, but didn't clear it in time anyway, and that one mistake took me down to 50% health. Luckily I didn't make any others.
Like any solo activity this expansion, this was ridiculously easy on a BM Hunter (ilvl 700, pvp gear), burned him down in under a minute, he stayed glued to my pet the whole time, and the one time I did get hit, it was because I was so lagged out I didn't have time to react. I am not particularly skilled at this game and I almost wish he was more of a challenge, as it didn't feel like much of an accomplishment... but still very cool.
If you are tanking,
try to account for the knockback by standing with your back to the wall. Xemirkol's
can knock you up onto a ledge on the wall and this will have the same effect as knocking you off the platform entirely;
you will unphase from the fight and will not get credit for the kill
The only thing you can really do to avoid the knockback is to be alert and get out of the way as soon as you see him casting
. It has a two second cast time which you can use to get out of the way.
Is this guy unable to be done with cross-server groups? I saw once in LFG a player looking for more to kill him, and I joined him. Headed to the rare's location, and used the Seeking Crystal item, but got the 'no rare found' error, despite the fact I was standing where I should, the mini-map showed the other teammate right where I was, only phased out.
We even waited 15 minutes for the timer to reset and try again, but he could get in just fine (he hearthed out and used the item in front of me), but my crystal just, again, said no rares in range.
I made a WeakAura to alert when he uses the abilities you have to interrupt or dodge. Please note that you might want to apply your own sounds to it.
Also, it may be my imagination, but I saw quite a few Xemirkol groups recently. I'm wondering if Blizzard increased the spawn rate.
I highly recommend, if you're going to try and do this solo with a follower, do not use a tank follower unless you are ranged. I've tried with Defender Illona multiple times, and since there's no way to control where your followers move once they start attacking something, the shadow crashes all piled up and made it impossible to DPS him effectively.
He also has an EXTREMELY small hit box, so you have to be right up in his #$%^ to be able to attack or use any melee abilities.
For those looking to solo; things to know about combat:
I'm repeating other comments, but death will remove the debuff that allows you to see him.
Also getting hit by carrion blast will knock you back. This can lead to losing debuff. However, as rogue dps, I was knocked back but landed on the platform (this requires being knocked inward from the platform's edge). I did NOT lose the debuff.
Stepping in stuff will damage you... go figure.
NO ONE seems to say this, but for soloing, use your artillery strike or guardian orb. Save all three charges. As a rogue I used two charges at the beginning of the fight, popped my cooldowns and focused on rotation, then popped my last artillery strike while pooling energy. I am only ilvl 705. He CAN be soloed. Given, I use the pvp garrison buff, cheat death talent, and a stone-enhanced health pot.
I did it on my second try. So don't be discouraged. Learn his mechanics, and you're on your way to this FoS.
i wanna write here detect demon elixir cant see this rare. To day i drink elixir then fly over some demons yes it is track demons then i go xermikol s spawn placce and start realm hop. After couple minutes i see some russian bros they usin their rare crytals (lol mine realm ) i use mine crystal i can see rare but alliances in there 6-7 player pulled rare before them gettin gank :Dand i am here at last detect demon elixir bigest bull!@#$ for this rare! sorry about bad engrish
just killed a couple of minutes ago on US emerald dream horde right after server reset
Got it today at server restart , so i can confirm he spawns at server restart but not in all servers he didn't spawned in mine, i got it with prenade group, but i'm almost sure he spawns in half servers at server restart. Good luck all with xermikol and if you found it create a premade group and help others!
I am pretty sure it is impossible to kill Xemirkol if you already killed it once for the achievement and the title.
Today, a friend asked me to come on my realm to check if Xermirkol was up and luckily for him, he was up. However, he failed to solo it and asked for my help.
So i bought the blue crystal and joined him. When his own crystal was up again, we both used them: he got ported in front of Xemirkol, i had that message saying no rare was around.
He got killed again and i went buying the purple crystal this time. We tried again and the results were almost the same: he got ported in front of Xemirkol again and this time i was ported to a random rare at the opposite of Tanaan.
So we simply invited 2 random dps (we tried before but we only had realm hoppers...), they all got ported and nuked Xemirkol.
So after this, i am pretty confident to say that you can kill Xemirkol once only. However, i have to admit i have no idea what would happen if a warlock would try to summon someone who already have the achievement and title.
I was so cool when I found him I invited ppl from group finder:) a ^&*!er brought a tank follower with him so the mob was turning around before he died...he knowcked me up on the wall...I instantly lost my debuff and the group killed without me...
DO NOT BE COOL DO NOT INVITE ANYONE :)) they won't wait YOU :)
I'm a BM Hunter (iLvl 688) and I just got him on the second try. If I can do it, anyone can. I don't do battlegrounds or PVP at all, only PVE and questing, as I'm a very casual player. I'm not a young spring chicken any more either, but that's beside the point. LOL! I must say though, I really wanted this title! :p
The first time I tried, I had no bodyguard with me and got too close, accidentally stepping in the stuff he casts, as well as fought in front of him for most of the fight. I did manage to make it more than 3/4 of the way thru, but it wasn't good enough.
The second time, I had Defender Illona with me. She didn't do too bad, making it thru a good portion of the fight (at least 3/4) then bit the dust, but I will say that having her help made a big difference.
A couple major things (for ranged attacking)... avoid stepping in stuff he casts and continuously move around, trying your best to stay behind him, which I found really helped. Whatever you do, don't stand in one place! Of course, I used all my CD's and stampede, which helped as well. My pet's health never went down...he really took care of me...although my middle mouse button with a macro of "/petattack" and "/cast Mend Pet" together, did help just a bit. I spammed the heck out of that!
P.S. I read Xemirkol has a pretty long spawn timer (27 hours), so I strongly suggest using an addon like Server Hop (best thing ever) to search on other servers, if you're like me and lack patience. After dying on the first try, when I portaled to him again, he was there but unfortunately, someone else was in the process of killing him, so I lost the chance. After waiting one more time for the CD on my crystal, I jumped onto another server, portaled and there he was. Whew.... glad that's over!
Much Luck to Everyone!
Does not show up with
so don't bother searching for him with it.
I got teleported to this guy for the first time today. When I got to him there was no one else around but he was standing there, out of combat, but with a grey healthbar like someone else had the tag. I looked around for anyone that may be causing him to evade but didn't see anyone. I decided to fight him and I defeated him on my first try, but I did not get credit for the kill. When I popped out I found another person on the platform. After talking to them I learned that they had previously tried to kill him and died and was waiting for their crystal cooldown to come back up.
So long story short: for some reason the tag can persist after death.
His name phonetically (and probably not coincidentally) sounds like 's a miracle". As in if you play on a crowded server and get lucky enough to be ported to him "It's a Miracle." Clever blizz clever
Very easy to solo as a disc priest. I used the body guard Aeda Brightdawn. She tanked the boss in a corner. I did not get agro off the boss at all and i just dpsed him down. Aeda was not chucked off the edge and bearly took any damage. I simply avoided the shadow crash by running out of it before it could stun me. that is all i pretty much had to do the entire fight. Very easy fight. Im 700 item lvl
As a Blood Dk in 710 ilvl gear (Mythics and Heroic Hellfire Citadel geared, basically), this guy nearly killed me. He hits HARD. Like. Really hard. If you get hit by shadow crash, you're dead. The way I did the fight and I believe is the simplest way is like so :
Engage him, turn so that your back is to the wall of his platform and you're standing at what is roughly the platform's center. He will cast Shadow Crash and Mind Blast. Backpaddle out of Shadow Crash and interrupt his Mind Blast. Continue backpaddling as he will not either cast a second Shadow Crash or a Carrion Swarm. Regardless, when he does cast CArrion Swarm, insure your back is to the wall and you are hugging the wall, because otherwise you'll get blasted to the other side of Azeroth.
The moment you land back on the ground from Carrion Swarm, move to the left, then run back to the middle of the platform far away from the wall. Basically back to where the fight started but slightly to the left so you don't need to stand in the Shadow Crash. Then, once again, turn so your back is to the wall. Rinse and repeat untill he dies.
The Respawn time seems to be around 12 hours.
We wanted to clarify a bit on the achievement
, since it seems it can cause some confusion. If there are several players hitting
, they will need to be in the same group if all of them want to get credit. Otherwise only one player will get the achievement.
Very easy kill for Warlocks.. Just use your pet tank, order him to corner and just kick his ass :)
Encountered a weird bug I haven't seen anyone else mention while killing Xemirkol: At around 30-40%, he took off and ran inside the large solid pillar on his platform. He was still targetable, but out of line of sight, and seemingly nothing would make him come back. Luckily my pet was somehow able to follow him, and finished him off, so I got my FoS.
This brings me to my second point: At the time of writing, the many comments about him being a particularly difficult rare aren't really true any more, so if you're anywhere near decently geared, you don't have to worry about finding a group. Like I said, my pet alone was able to kill him from 30-40% (specced to BM, ilvl 719, gear unoptimized for the spec). He didn't seem more difficult to me than the Dark Portal and Highmaul rares, so if you can solo them, you should be fine.
idk what made me do it, but I went to Tanaan randomly for the first time in months and used the crystal. And there he was.
I panicked and pulled him, but almost got killed because he hits decently hard (715 MM hunter alt with Lone Wolf). I feigned, composed myself, and just switched to Focusing Shot for the fight. Pet tanked him no prob and he melted. Watch the ground for the void crashes and keep your back to a wall, just in case.
It was an extremely lucky find. 3pm CST on US-Azuremyst.
Miracle on Xemirkol's Street....
First. thank you to all of you who spent time documenting the in's and out's of pursuing this rare and
the Predator achievement, all of the comments here helped in one way or another.
After a week making up the deficiencies in my Jungle Stalker achievement and getting exalted chasing Corrupted Apexis we started the process of finding Xemirkol. Basically what this involved was a 10 minute side-trip to kill Steelsnout and try the Hunter's Crystals...today they worked! We had a fight and a win and in the most amazing fashion...basically spank him and drag him around and watch for his blow back attack...this all worked well until towards the very end when I found myself focusing more on his almost empty health bar than on what he was throwing at us...and with 75k health left he caught me with the knock back.
As things do, everything moved really slo-mo and I thought about coming back and trying again...then I was aware that this wasn't a normal knockback - it has whatever force is required to lift you up and past the edge of the platform...I saw the edge of the platform come up in my peripheral vision and just as I passed over the edge the achievement posted! Yippee skippee - victory from the sure grasp of defeat - I'm still amazed, and very glad that my gf cut loose with a burst just at the moment of my demise. (I'm also real glad that I came to my senses pretty quick as I was underwater in the lagoon.)
Moral? Not so sure but "never give up until it's really over" strikes true :)
Can confirm that using
works I killed
and used the crystal and ported to the boss I am a ilevel 735 ret pally and had no issues in killing it however just make sure you avoid the
on the ground and his knock back ability :
I used an addon : Cross Realm Assist which helped me get me to a low pop realm.
Good Luck Hunter Guys
I just want everyone to know that
alone does indeed work. You can pop it while literally standing on Xemirkol's platform and it will teleport you to him if he's up. I try to hop on in the mornings before work and check for him once before I leave. He was up today on Zul'jin at 9:47 eastern time.
He casts Mind Blast which is interruptible, Shadow Crash which can easily be avoided before it hits you, which will leave behind a purple shadow zone that will do damage if stood in, and Carrion Blast which has the potential to knock you off the platform if you get hit by it.
A lot of people, who have been upvoted actually, like to say that Shadow Crash can knock you off if hit by it...this is
. I was hit by one in my bout of mini heart attack, and besides the little bit of damage it does, It
you for a few seconds and that's it. Just avoid Carrion Blast and you will be fine.
while the difficulty changes for each person and every class when dealing with him, as a bit of advice, mostly just stay on the move and if you have a healing capability keep yourself above 50% or so, it is frustrating when he knocks you back a few times, but after about 3 attempts i got him down, also i didnt even know about it until i got randomly ported in
overall just have fun running his face into the dirt
Anyone know when the respawn time is?
Okay so first thing's first, some warrior and I just downed this guy on EU Outland at 8:40 AM on Wednesday July 6th, 2016.
Second thing, considering the amount of research I did and the lack of information about this out there I'd like to share my experience.
I was given to understand that you don't need to be exalted with Order of the Awakened in order to get teleported up to this guy, this is
be exalted with Order of the Awakened to be able to see him, I had 20,100 revered and the warrior had exalted, he got teleported up and I didn't... luckily he had a spare medallion.
I cannot stress this enough you must be EXALTED! This was the most gut wrenching feeling considering I almost missed it.
Happy hunting future predators!
I killed him on realm arathor 14:30 realm time. Just heads up for those who is camping him on arathor
I've killed him on Draenor, at 09.40, after 3 days of "crystal clicking". I'm a lvl 712 mm hunter, I've stayed on his platform and clicked on
and there I was, on the same place, debuffed and with
in front of me. He died in like a minute or so without casting
once. I got the
title, I dont think I will use it, I got the
title which I like most.
I finally killed him today on Thrall at 14:21. I know most people don't but I really like this title. My warlock shall wear it with pride.
The blue trinket works just fine
Best location to use the teleport is to be on the platform
Props to the skirmish queue trick to reset the teleport CD
Tried realm hopping, resetting the item for hours, but no luck
Logged on once, flying on top of the platform, saw an alliance warrior sitting there next to a feast, how weird, huh?
I felt a shimmer down my spine, could this mean he knows the rare is there and is prepping up or waiting for his friends to join?
I am on horde, so I won´t be able to get the tag for the kill if they engage it. No way ima let them take it. I used the item, ported in, soloed his ass on my mage still in PVP specc due to the skirmish trick but with legendary ring (had to use 2x IB, TW, a health potion, everything but still got him 1st try lol).
Bottom line, be loyal to your own server, hopping isn´t always your salvation :)
For anyone hunting him he was just killed on
Chamber of Aspects-EU
Can confirm he drops no loot and the rare crystal is by far the best to use.
Sadly someone used the epic crystal , even on Steelsnout's location and ended up ported to the other side of the jungle so don't risk it!
Gz to the huge group of people who joined me that got their shiny new title and thank you for being so patient in waiting as the group formed ♥
Can confirm that I logged on and killed him straight away on US-Frostmourne at 10:44am SVT. Only had to use the blue crystal to get ported to his platform :)
I'm surprised nobody has mentioned this before, but you can reset your
by queuing up for skirmish arena. No need to wait 15 mins.
Could anyone please tell me the answer to my question.. Which im most utterly amazed that nobody answers..?
IS PREDATOR DOABLE WITHOUT Hunter's Seeking Crystal
This guy's name reminds me of Runescape's Zemourgal.
Xemirkol does not appear as a gold star on your minimap, like the other rares do after 7.0 patch.
No need to pre-setup yourself, you'll be teleported at the front of the platform when the crystal hits. 705 lock here, destruction in 7.0, soloable for sure. Just need to keep an eye on your and pet health and siphon as needed and don't rush it. Avoid the pools and carrion swarm and you're golden.
Probably best tothrow a crystal attempt after reset, that's when i got it.
Got phased out 2 times today by getting knocked up against the wal.. So furious right now. Probably gonna be days before I see him again. So yeah, don't think the wall is going to save you. Avoid Carrion Blast.
Reset timer confirmed yet?
Here is my experience with farming Xemirkol.
First of all, make sure you have
. After finding out about Xemirkol and his FoS achievement I spent about 20 tries with
without having the achievement. Waste of time.
After I had achieved
, I got to it. I spent about 50 attempts trying to find him without luck. I reset my stone in arena skirmishes and uses the AddOn 'Server Hop' to change servers.
I got my kill this morning at ~10:30 on Stormscale EU, only one day after starting to try to achieve
During the fight with
intestering stuff happened.
to about 70 %, when an alliance paladin joined in. Fortunately, the paladin didn't know that his late tag wouldn't grant him the achievement, so he didn't attempt to kill me either. However, my focus on the paladin made me screw up with
. I got knocked off at about 60 %.
I promptly joined an arena skirmish to reset my
and when I got back out I immediately used it to get back to
. I got back with
around 30 % hp.
's name was still in red, suggesting that it was still my tag and my loot, despite I had been knocked out. But I took no chances. I killed the paladin in seconds and took the kill for myself. I can't conclude whether or not I would have gotten the achievement if I had let the paladin stay alive, as I was the one to get the original first tag on
TL;DR: Remember to get

I just had what might have been the most bizarre encounter ever with a rare NPC. I managed to encounter Xemirkol with a hunter character and a pet and bodyguard and began a battle with him, but then not even a half minute into it he
ran off left side of the platform
and disappeared. My pet and bodyguard pursued him, but while out of my sight he just disappeared never to reappear. I read quite a few of the comments here and saw no one else describing the same. WTF happened?
GOT HIM ! Finally ,,, #defias brotherhood - time of death 2:20
I was on 1% of my lvl 100 roque
Can anyone confirm whether or not you still teleport to Xemirkol at 100+? I've been trying for the past few days now that I'm 110, but so far no luck. When I was at 100, I teleported to him on the first or second try every time (but always got my butt kicked).
Hopefully it's just bad luck - I was really looking forward to making Xemirkol my b**** now that I'm 110.
Finally got it today on my level 110. Only using the blue quality teleport item.
Just a quick heads up because I wasted a lot of time on this: You can only teleport to him on the character you've done the achievement with. I had the achievement completed but I never realized I had done it on my hunter instead of my paladin, and so I sat day after wretched day using the crystal on cooldown yet it never ported me to the boss. I am on a super low pop realm, so he was probably up for hours before someone else came along and killed him.
I quickly completed the achievement today, used the crystal and voilá! There he was.
So I'm pottering around Tanaan farming the

Do you need to be exalted with Order of the Awakened too or just have the achievement?
Get honored with 'Order of the Awakened' to get

I'm going to agree with what Anizia posted on 8/17/2016.... You need the achievement "Jungle Stalker" (Defeat all rares in Tanaan Jungle) before doing this. I got the blue Hunter's Seeking crystal after becoming Honored with Order of the Awakened, then became Exalted with Order of the Awakened because I read that even though you can obtain the crystal at Honored, you have to be Exalted to teleport to Xemirkol, which still did not work. After a few days of regularly clicking the blue crystal with no results, I thought I'd best get the Jungle Stalker achievement to see how things go. One minute after getting it, I made my way over to the area by Steelsnout and used the blue crystal, and Voila.... I was teleported to Xemirkol and got the title. So yeah... getting the Jungle Stalker achievement seemed to do the trick! :-)
also works for anyone still needing this guy
If like me you used your
