Well, this is a first. In Legion (well, technically patch 7.0) Hunters will be able to venture into Siege of Orgrimmar and gather parts to make their very own Iron Juggernaut pet — in four different colors! To fully discover all the ins and outs of this taming challenge took many hours of searching around SoO, and the rest of Azeroth for that matter. I spent most of the time searching around with Valnaaros from the Petopia forums.
One of the parts needed turned out to be extremely well hidden, and when we didn’t see it on first inspection we assumed it was found elsewhere. After visiting every gnomish and goblin type area in WoW, we finally went back to SoO and found the missing piece. If you want to discover all this for yourself, skip the guide section below.
The Basics (no spoilers)
- Comes in four colors: grey, teal, green, and blue.
- They are fairly noisy pets with lots of random mechanical noises. They aren’t very big, so they look a little small beside larger races. About the same size as a regular scorpid pet.
- Part of the new Mechanical family. Goblins and Gnomes can tame immediately in 7.0, other races will need to acquire a Mecha-Bond Imprint Matrix from an engineer after Legion launches.
- All parts are found in Siege of Orgrimmar.
- Can only craft one per week per Hunter (even if you run SoO on multiple difficulties).
- The parts drop in Normal, Heroic, or Mythic. The raid is soloable on Normal or Heroic
with the exception of Galakras, which you will need at least one friend for.Galakras can be soloed in patch 7.1.
- There is only one part dropped per boss, even if multiple Hunters are present. If you have a Hunter buddy to run this with, I would suggest one of you gets the parts in Normal and the other in Heroic, so you both can tame one per week.
- The lootable object(s) needed will re-appear with a soft reset (e.g. leaving the raid for a few hours and coming back, the part will respawn).
The Guide (spoilers)
- There are 3 parts you need to collect note: If you don’t see the item on the corpse, make sure everyone in your group loots the boss. Then it should show up.
- Set the raid difficulty to Normal or higher.
- Kill Immerseus, the Protectors, Norushen, Sha of Pride, and then Galakras.
- The first part you need will drop off Iron Juggernaut: Pile of Juggernaut Parts.
- Kill the Dark Shaman.
- Keep going until you get into the underground area of Orgrimmar. Here is where you will find the first bucket of paint (Green color). See exact location below.
- Kill General Nazgrim.
- Underneath Malkorok you will find the second paint bucket (Blue color). See exact location below.
- Kill Malkorok.
- The last part you will need drops off Siegecrafter Blackfuse: Blackfuse’s Power Core.
- If you want a green or blue juggernaut, you can now craft and tame one. To get the other colors, keep going.
- Start the Spoils of Pandaria encounter. You will find the Teal color paint bucket in the western corner. See exact location below.
- Kill Thok the Bloodthirsty to open the final door.
- Kill the Paragons of the Klaxxi.
- The final bucket (Grey color) is found in the passageway between Paragons and Garrosh. See below for exact location.
See the maps below for the exact locations of the four paint buckets mentioned above. I can’t tell you how much of a pain it was to try and locate these. 😛 Siege of Orgrimmar is a BIG place…
Crafting and taming the Juggernaut
Once you’ve got all the parts, it’s a matter of choosing what color you want to tame. Simply right-click the appropriate paint bucket and it will create one of these: Deactivated Blue Juggernaut.
Now that you have a deactivated juggernaut, it’s just a matter of right clicking it to summon the juggernaut itself. The juggernaut will be neutral and won’t attack until you start taming it. There’s really no trick to the tame, but to be safe you may want to pop Aspect of the Turtle first. Only the Hunter who summoned the Juggernaut can tame it, and no one else can attack it.
And now you have your new pet! As you can see, the parts are all consumed on use. You can stockpile as much paint as you want, but the boss drops can only be obtained once per week.
First I’d like to thank Blizzard for all the cool things they are doing with Hunter pets in Legion. There’s a huge variety of challenges for the mechanical pets, and some other long requested favorites like Thok and Tortos (lookalike) being added to the mix. The only thing I wish we got was more stable slots, as I’m going to have a hard time deciding what pets to send to pasture before Legion.
Lastly, I’d like to thank Petopia and Valnaaros for helping me run SoO and search for these parts on the beta.
