Loque’nahak Q&A

Q: How long did it take you to locate and tame the Spirit Beast once you set out to do so?
A: About 12 days and an average of 4-6 hrs searching per day.

Loque'nahak - Spirit BeastQ: Where did you finally tame Loque?
A: Southern spawn location southwest of The Skyreach Pillar.

Q: What time of day was it?
A: Approximately 1pm server time.

Q: Did you know Loque’nahak was going to be there?
A: No.

Q: Were you camping that location?
A: Not really. I was only there about five minutes.

Q: Had you seen Loque at all during the 12 day search prior to taming, and if so, where?
A: Twice. Both times at the spot west of The Nesingwary Base Camp.

Q: What time of day was it when you spotted Loque’s corpse the other 2 times?
A: 11:44pm server and then again the following day at 5:51pm server. 18 hours, 7 mins apart.

A: Is Loque on a 6 hour spawn timer?
Q: I believe so.

King KrushA: Is the spawn timer related to the other rares in Sholazar Basin?
Q: Perhaps. Loque spawned in the spot Krush was killed 12 hours earlier.

Q: Did you patrol for him or camp one location?
A: I tried both, but mostly patrolled.

Q: Would you recommend patrolling for him or camping?
A: I recommend patrolling. There are too many spawn locations to just bet on one.

Q: Should I try to tame Loque once I reach level 76?
A: Absolutely not. Wait until you can get Cold Weather Flying.

Q: How important is it to have a flying mount when trying to find Loque?
A: Very important.

Q: How long does it take to cover all of the spawn points in the basin on a flying mount?
A: About five minutes.

Q: How long does it take to patrol on a ground mount?
A: Too long.

Q: Is it true that Loque’nahak is only out for ten minutes at a time once spawned?
A: No. Loque would never be up that long before being killed or tamed.

Q: How many spawn points did you patrol?
A: 5 for the first 10 days, then 7 the following 2 days.

Q: How many spawn locations are there for Loque’nahak?
A: 7 that I am convinced of.

Q: Where are they?
A : Right here, shown on the map below.

    Been out in SB 3 days. 4-6 hours at a time. ( I have school too) hunting Loque. Flying around periodically to see if he spawned anywhere else. I hope I get him soon. I have seen other hunters as well around Nessingway where I am camping. And some Paladins Y.Y aiming to kill. I hope I find him soon.

    Thought I should mention, I have 3 Loques now, caught them all within a two day time span, and the first two were south west of the sky reach pillar, and the last was his most northern spawn near the mountains.

    Haha I might as well share my story too.

    I was searching for her for about 3 days, 3-6 hours a day, patrolling all 7 spawns.

    I ran into King Krush twice before I even saw Loque once…

    Luckily for me, the first time was all I needed :)

    I found her south of the sky reach pillar, and stupid swarm of bugs almost screwed me out of her.

    I had to FD to get the aggro off, hurry up and drop the freezing trap, and had to auto attack her to pull her towards the trap because I undershot it :O

    The craziest part is not even one second after I tame her, I get slammed with arrows and some enemy hunter kills me.

    He camped me for like 15 minutes, but it’s cool because I got Loque :)

    I have been looking for 2 days now.. about 4-6 hours a day (I have school), and have not seen him at all. There isnt even anyone in the area to claim him, so I guess anyone looking for him has his spawn time for my server… That, or im the most unlucky hunter alive, wich I wouldnt doubt.

    I’ve been hunting Loch’Nahak since early this morning. It’s now 6pm. I have seen hide nor hair of him or any of the other rares that spawn in the basin. I HAVE seen A LOT of alliance around and I ganked a few of them and got ganked once myself. After that I decided to just keep dodging them so i could find and tame the beast. Next post i make will tell you he’s mine. Time to win :)

      That’s probably why you don’t have any luck.. Telling ppl fuck you isn’t giving you the best Karma ya know..

  7. says

    Is it just me, or have I been extremely lucky with my spirit beasts lately? Friday I tamed Gondria from Zul’Drak. Sunday I tamed Arcturis from Grizzly Hills, and today, Monday, I tamed Loque’Nahak from Sholazar Basin. All within 5 minutes of searching total time in each zone. I feel good. :)

    • Snuzzle/BB says

      Oddly enough I have been finding these real easy as well.

      Thanks for the infromation. All spotted withing 5 minutes.

I got Karoma yesterday (Wed) at 5:30 p.m. (around then) Then today (thurs) I caught Sambas around 5:30 a.m. (around then again), and Skoll an hour later (same day). Im trying tonight for Loque’nahak :3 Keep you posted when i find the lil guy!

    • Mimmi says

      I feel pretty lucky, without much time spent I tamed Terror from Hyjal at 2 am server time, then I tamed Gondria that afternoon at 1:15 server time, I then proceeded to find King Krush at 1:30 server time and later that evening, without even searching I tamed Arcturis, the following day I tamed my beloved Loque without looking, I accidently ran into her without even looking. I was flying got my mount stuck at top mountain came back to her right beside me. I would say pretty lucky, I am now out to find skull lets see how long since I only began looking for them 12 hours before I first tamed terror my studmuffin.
