…continues. Well at least I got to see him on the PTR today for the first time. 😀
Yaone of Lightbringer had posted earlier this morning about taming him at the Snowdrift Plains location. I saw the comment and I figured I’d log on and make a quick swoop while I was thinking about it. Lo and behold, what do I see the moment I log in… Skoll!
Luckily Yaone was still hanging out near the taming location, so I was able to get a first hand glimpse of this new pet. He is BAD ASS! I know it’s just a re-skinned Spirit Beast with one of those funky new wolf models, but the way it all comes together with the deep icy blue, and the lightning, and the lasers, and the… well, you get the point. Plus, he’s friggin huge. His normal size is nearly the equivalent of an enraged old world wolf.
Thanks Yaone for hanging around and chatting with me while I grabbed these screenshots. 😀
I think Skoll’s buzz has been quieted considerably by all this Worgen craziness. Once players start to see Hunters with him on the live realms, he’s going to be highly sought after by Beast Masters.
For those of you that are interested in taming him on the PTR or just want a heads up on his spawn areas for when live hits, here’s a map with Skoll’s two known spawn locations.
I’d expect there to be at least 1-3 more locations being reported in the next several days, but these are the only two I’ve heard about so far. If anyone knows of any confirmed sightings or tames at other locations, please post them in a comment.
According to Yaone, Skoll is on a 6 hour respawn timer, or at least that’s what she was told by a fellow Hunter who was camping him as well. I wasn’t able to log back on and confirm that, but at least I have a better idea when my chances of taming him might be greater.
