Day 1: I just dinged level 80 and I heard about this new rare Devilsaur pet called King Krush. He’s the only green devilsaur. I must tame this beast!
Day 6: A fellow hunter who encountered this rare beast told me his initial attempts to tame the beast were unsuccessful because it would fear him before the tame completes. And Krush hits like a truck.
Day 37: Still no sign of King Krush, but I always keep a throwaway pet on hand so I can cast Bestial Wrath for fear immunity right before the tame. I have a macro that will instantly abandon the throwaway after Bestial Wrath. It also pops a haste potion. It’s foolproof!
Day 212: Still no sign of King Krush. I’m beginning to lose hope.
Day 1037: I give up.
Day 1860: Decided to give it another go for old times’ sake. No luck, but I’m going to log out in Sholazar so I can check as soon as I login tomorrow.
Day 1861: I logged in to find King Krush standing 15 yards in front of me. HE’S MINE!
King Krush is one of those pets that requires a healthy dose of luck in order to tame. You could quite easily break yourself if you decide to camp for him until he is tamed. Not only is his respawn timer relatively long compared to other rares, but he spawns in several different locations so you can’t camp in the same spot.
To top it off, killing him is a requirement for the Frostbitten achievement. This achievement is responsible for the travesty you see below which I encountered on my alt hunter.
My best advice is to get yourself the NPCScan addon and check his spawns out when you have time, preferably during off hours. If you’re an engineer, make a Wormhole Generator for quick transport. See Wowhead for a map of spawn points.
The silver lining to this difficult hunt is there is 2 other sought after rare beasts in the same zone, Loque’nahak and Aotona. Good luck with the hunt… he is definitely worth it! No other Devilsaur compares in my opinion!
