The Storm Peaks Rares

The Storm Peaks in central Northrend is a frigid mountainous region that used to be the home of the titans, with Ulduar as their city. The storm giants now inhabit the area. Players questing here will learn about the lore behind the titans, the Hyldnir, Brann Bronzebeard, and the Sons of Hodir. If you’re into costumes, a popular item is the Iron Boot Flask which can be obtained fairly easily.

  • Dirkee is a giant mechanical super-gnome located by several Titan temples.
  • Skoll – a tameable spirit beast with a unique lightning saber skin.
  • Vyragosa, a blue drake, takes an elaborate flight path around the western part of the zone. She also shares a spawn timer with the Time-Lost Proto Drake, which drops the Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake. To this day I’ve seen and killed Vyragosa several times but have yet to see the Time-Lost in the wild.

The things I go through to get a good shot. This was a tough one to get. He hits hard being a squishy as I spent more time trying to keep myself alive while trying to take a couple of pics. He did get me on that attempt too =/

I finally have a shot of this one! I wrote about this recently in My Favourite rare post.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a live shot of this one but a dead shot (or two) is better than no shot, don’t you think?

  1. All my characters that have been through there and not one has caught a glimpse of Dirkee. The other three I’ve seen just once each!

  2. I love the Skoll model, he’s my favorite pet to use when I’m on my hunter and I named him Snoop, lol.

  3. I like Skoll too! I had killed him somehow before (for achievement) but not known when or how (maybe grouped up) and it was a long time before I got my pic of him too. Well done!

  4. Being a Hunter I just had to have “Skoll” along with every other exotic spirit beast possible (Sadly Blizzard doesn’t give more than 20 stable slots and 5 on toon for pets so I do actually miss maybe a few) However when I started to chase up cheeves (achievements) I started killing each and every one.. I recently got teh bloody rare (Outlands) completed and I just have to pop off Vyragosa to complete Frostbitten. However Her spawn rate is as bad as TLPD and even though I have that mount I never actually “farmed” to get it. Maybe Lady luck will serve me with Vyragosa.

    Good post too, Also I read your How to take good screen shots I never knew about the format and stuff but Your a angel for sharing Its made my editing my screenies a lot easier than batch conversions.

    • @Tome – I’ve seen him in two spots. Hope you see him sometime soon. He’s prob fun to kill these days and not when you’re a fresh 80 =/

      @Arvash – I was so excited to finally tame him too in wrath :)

      @Nav – Sounds like you were – poss. even in a raid.

      @Night – I really only wanted Loq and Skoll but last yr I managed to get the owl too. I also worked hard on getting those rare achievements early on. :) Yyr was the last one for me too, as with a lot of people, it seems. GL with you last kill :)

      Glad I could help with your ss’s too. Always love hearing that one of my guides helped someone out :D
