Upgrading Your WoW Account: Huolon
For this article, I figured it would be best to take a break from hunting down mounts in instances and start looking for some rare ones in the open world. Pandaria’s open world is a refreshing change in comparison to the extremely repetitive instance running for boss kills and mount drops. One interesting mount acquirable can be found from the Timeless Isle, from one rare mob called Huolon. Huolon is a magnificent thundering onyx cloud serpent that roams around Timeless Isle in the lands of Pandaria. This rare mob, while ten levels below the current meta, is still something that should not be trifled with. It’s still capable of killing the uninitiated rather quickly and is a pain in the ass just to aggro. WoW Account.
WoW Account: Huolon on Timeless Isle
Huolon has a clear and indicative path which he travels on. It doesn’t really matter where you aggro him so long as you are able to do so and that you are clear of other mobs that may get in the way. The best place to aggro him is in the Firewalker’s path, past the Firewalker ruins. Just stay somewhere in the beginning of the path’s green proper and then kill or avoid some of the patrolling mobs in the area. WoW account.
You still won’t be able to hit him with a melee skill, but he does get close enough for most ranged abilities to hit him. Also be aware that to be able to get any drops from Huolon, your faction MUST get the initial tag, meaning that someone from your faction has to be able to hit it first. If you’re horde and another hordie gets the tag, all you really have to do is hit it once and your golden. However, due to Timeless Isle no longer being current, you can’t rely on other people just to kill it because they may fail. Soloing it is no problem either way, but do be aware of Huolon’s incessant and perpetual aoe-ing of the place because, if stacked together, those will absolutely kill you. Huolon also has a breath attack that may or may not kill you, depending on your health level and current gear. It shouldn’t be much of a problem as a level 100, but it doesn’t hurt to be careful.

Make sure that, when he dies, he’s above a patch of ground that is easily accessible to you because it’s going to suck if his body despawns while you’re desperately trying to reach his corpse on some high clifftop. Chances are, you won’t get the mount all at once and will require a few tries. Download some mods that will track Huolon’s respawn depending on when he was last killed and it’ll be easier to track him down every time. With a little luck and a little perseverance, you’ll be able to get that Thundering Onyx Cloud Serpent in no time.
