Patch 7.0.3 | Posted: August 2, 2016
Players can unlock this quest by obtaining a Strange Humming Crystal from the Kirin Tor emissary chest (World Quest reward). This quest item is not a guaranteed drop.

This quest is available to level 110 characters, and has players seek out and defeat 8 elite NPCs in Dalaran.

Each NPC has a unique moveset, reminiscent of rare spawns in Mists of Pandaria.

The Wonderous Wisdomball is a non-combat pet and cannot participate in Pet Battles.


Magic pets cannot be dealt more than 35% of their maximum health in one attack.


Damage Taken 

50% from Dragonkin abilities

Can anyone confirm if this still drops in Dragonflight? I can confirm as of 10.0.7 that this does in fact still drop. Received tonight and I was shocked. I guess after ~6+ years and the painstaking cycling through 16 toons each time Kirin Tor Emissary was up - all I had to do was ask here if it still existed.



To all those still grinding, I feel your pain. Do not give up.

Yes, it is still available in Shadowlands!

I have finally got it two days ago after literally several years of trying with five characters! :)

Does anyone know if this is still atainable in Shadowlands? I have been trying for this pet every time the emissary quest comes up on at least six characters and have had zero luck. It's been years. >.<


EDIT: After about 5 years of doing these darn quests on multiple characters (10 chars in the past year) every time it popped, I FINALLY got Khadgar to give me his damn head today. I have slain my white whale. :P (July 26th, 2022)

UPDATE:  458 attempts later, I have finally acquired the Strange Humming Shard.  July 4th 2020



I have been running three toons every time Kirin Tor comes up, for over three years and haven't got the quest yet. Is it still obtainable?

For anyone still wondering, this can still be obtained in BFA. I got the quest yesterday on the first toon I cycled through the KT WQs. This was the second round of KTs that I'd remembered to check for, and the last one I ran 10 toons through with no luck. Not sure if the drop rate has improved or if I was just lucky, but at least it can still be acquired!

According to Rarity, as of February 2018, this has a 1 in 100 drop rate from the Kirin Tor emissary chest. If you obtain it in 69 or fewer attempts you are "lucky". If you have attempted it 70 times or more and it hasn't dropped you are "unlucky".

@ Endaria - I feel your pain. Doing it on 8 toons since Legion started and may have missed one Emissary. Still have not seen it drop. One of the few I need. Will just keep trying.

The quest item seems like a really low drop rate since I've been playing regularly since the start of legion and still haven't gotten it. I'm now doing kirin tor on 15 toons when it pops up.

Got a second one today. It is now soulbound when receiving it, and still uncagable after learning it, making it no longer available on the AH.

I can confirm that companion pet does exist. After doing all the Kirin Tor cache with 5 different alts everytime was avaiable, today I got the quest...

I was just curious if anyone had found the item on the AH recently? I noticed a comment from a year(ish) ago, that said the item was tradeable before learning it. Is this still the case? Thanks!


Update Feb 15, 2018:


I finally got the item last week! And then today I got another one! Maybe they upped the drop rate? I'm not sure, but here's to hoping!

After doing the kirin tor emissary with 13 charactors everytime it pops up and havent received the item to get the wisdomball i have come to conclusion that this does not exist

Oh dear sweet jesus! This is the stuff nightmares are made of.


The mobs you have to kill really aren't that hard. I did it on my spriest with only one death. However, I did farm the rare mobs in MoP a lot during that expac so I was familiar with the skill sets. Most have special gimmicks that you need to watch out for. If you're constantly dying, it's probably one of those.


A plus is that others can help.

The Kirin Tor emissary is up now, but there are no quests. I really wonder what's going on here.

On AH? On my book this pet still not tradable..... And yes  Kirin Tor emissary dont pop since 2 weeks on my server. I hope Blizz will fix this, cos the pet will be impossible to get it if the emissary wont pop. EDIT Yeah the emissary popped also on Arathor Eu 26/11/2016, there was just 2 WQs marked as KT and a third in Arcway mythic without any emissary but it count for KT; then the 27/11/2016 popped the 4' quest, ofc no luck and no pet^^

Just a heads up, blizz has greatly reduced the odds of a Kirin Tor emissary popping up. Getting the pet will be even harder now. I found one on the AH for 85k


edit to respond to top post: This pet can't be caged if you learn it. It can still be sold on the AH to those who got the item from quest and never clicked to add pet to journal

Each mob is similar to a pandaria rare mob, and has an ability that kills you if not avoided.


Ogre: mogu warrior, dangerous is devastating arc

Hozen: hozen, dangerous is going bananas

Pandaren: pandaren, dangerous is spinning crane kick

Orc: mantid, dangerous is blade flurry

Forsaken: saurok, dangerous is vanish + backstab

Tauren: yaungol, dangerous is the stomp

Dwarf: jinyu, dangerous are torrent and rain dance

Human: mogu sorcerer, dangerous is the void zone.

I did this on my demo lock and had very little problem with 7 of the 8 of the NPCs. You might want some friends to back you up if you're a squishier class. They don't appear as elites/rares, so people have little incentive to help fight them if you try kiting them into the open. They also reset if you die fighting them alone but stay active as long as they're in battle.

This is the first semi-rare pet I've ever gotten, was worth my many deaths to those Dalaran elites!  I shared the pain though, got a tank from my guild to help and he died more times than I did..hah!


I was hoping he'd have some kind of 'on click' sound but he doesn't; however, it's a fun pet anyway, even if he can't battle. :)


I believe only the person who has the pet can talk to him, though I don't have confirmation on that one yet.

Well, it's a Khadgar themed magic 8-ball. He's fun to hang out with, but not all that helpful. :D

Obtainable at lvl 110 sounds like a following questgiver. Pretty smart idea if it is actually useful.
