This pet is a perfect match for my blood spec death knight! She never forgets to summon him during battle grounds and Wintergrasp. His main job is to strike fear into the hearts of all who oppose her! I mean really... who wouldn't be afraid of a self healing death knight with a floating skull? Afterall, this pet could actually be the skull of one of my death knight's cowering victims!

This was one of the easiest (albeit most expensive) pets to obtain when Wrath of the Lich King was first released. When I went to dalaran for the first time and bought one, I got so happy about Breanni's pet shop I bought my new Skull pet a ball to fetch! Now, most of you would assume he catches it with his mouth, right?

Wrong!

He catches it with his forehead. Apparently the rogue necromancer in the ranks of the Kirin Tor forgot to reanimate the skull's brain as well...

Pair him with a Nordrassil wisp and spirit of summer to make a disembodied head team.

Get the h/p breed and make it rare. These guys are cheap but one of the most effective pets. This is one of my favorite undeads

They are cheap, uncommon quality when purchased, and come in three possible breeds (H/B, H/P, H/H). Make sure you have the breed you want before using a stone.

If you get caught with many Flawless Undead Battle-stones after your undead pets are all Rare. Purchase these skulls at Dalaran, convert them to Rare and sell them on AH. I sold six for 250 gold or there abouts. You may be able to get more.

Always uncommon at purchase; you'll have to upgrade to rare. But don't just take the first one you get! There are three possible breeds: none offer much  speed, so I recommend power build (breed 7): At level 1 uncommon it will have H=156, P=11 & S=8. At level 25 rare - H=1627, P=305 & S=227. Set up for Siphon / Death Coil, this makes him really hard to kill. Uh... re-kill. Defeat? You get the idea.

Almost every Ghostly Skull I come across is named something similar to "Mort".

 

Also, even in 5.1, this guy is still excellent. I have battled teams which use Call Darkness and then the Skull in order to get off both Spectral Strike and Ghostly Bite. I guess the counter is use another weather move.

Stupid question, does the unholy ascension buff get capped if the total damage would be over the opponents damage cap, ie magic racial or legendary.  I'm thinking it's the same as howl with ion cannon.

Comes in three different breeds H/H(for 1800 health) or H/P(for 305 power) seems most useful. I love to surprise "darkness" birds with Spectral Strike which is strong vs Flying and gets increased hit chance in darkness. With high health it can often take out one opposing pet and top it off with an Unholy Ascension. Other tactics is to go with Death Coil and Siphon Life to keep going longer. Ghostly Bite, even with self stun, hits insanely hard.

Some how I have a B/B.  

Final stats:

Health - 1450

Power - 270  

Speed - 225

 

 

Is that better than any of the standard 3?

I bought a bunch of these guys, but none of them were rares, only uncommons. After reading some other comments, I think its safe to assume that for a rare, you have to upgrade it yourself.

is this pet always uncommon when you buy him? Or can you buy him as a rare? After battling this guy below dalaran I'm pretty sure i want him on an undead team.

I called him Morte. I like to think he spits out insults along with his Death Coil.

When it senses the impending death of a nearby creature, the skull will emit an ear-piercing cackle.
