Patch 5.3.0 | Posted: May 21, 2013
The Unborn Val'kyr can spawn in any zone in Northrend. It is not possible to force this elusive wild pet to spawn, and there is only a small chance that the spawn can be affected by players capturing one.

@ Schwank....why would you bother looking for a better quality one to upgrade? Upgrading a poor with a stone is the same as upgrading an uncommon.  This pet is so hard to find, leave them for someone without one...geez

Caught this beautiful undead lady this morning around 6 am server time.  She was at 46.0, 42.0 NW of Utgarde Keep in Howling Fjord.  I would suggest using a level 25 Aquatic pet with healing capabilities and surge, as it doesn't do much damage.  After she cast Haunt I just swapped pets so there would be no chance of of my pet dying and killing her!  (Accidentally killed 2 before because of this mistake.)  Good luck, and happy hunting!

I don't have an Unborn Val'kyr, but have battled many and have found out the best pets against them:


1. Aquatics - all Val'kyr attacks are weak against them

Suggested: Any breed of Mongoose (evasion tactic, Survival, speed for 1st attack - then again, a Val'kyr's highest S is 244)

2. Critters - for strong attacks against undead

Sug: Any breed of Rabbit (evasion tactic, survival move, Flurry)

3. Aq. w/ Crit. Att.

Sug: P/P Yellow-bellied Bullfrog (only Frog with P/P)

I found mine in Sholazar Basin just north west of the Spearborn Encampment along the grassy ridge by the ocean.

At a quarter hp it used Haunt and "died" which gave me a heart attack thinking I had lost my chance at catching it. I quickly looked up the ability and found out they return to life after 4 rounds. So after beating the extra pets I was able to catch the Val'kyr.

Note: You need to be careful with Haunt, if the pet being haunted dies before the ability ends the Val'kyr dies as well.

Finally found one and jumped into battle.  Only poor, but I'm not going to pass it up considering how long I've been looking.  Anubisath Idol hit it once 25%, again 25%, again KRACKTOW!!!! OMG WTH!!!  I think I just had a heart attack!!!  I wanted it just a bit lower, not critted to death!!!  Unborn Val'kyr came back to life with 8hp.  THANK THE WOW GODS!!! But oh my giddy heart...

There needs to be some moderator on the site who resets the ratings on a vastly changed pet so they don't remain as #1 battle pet after a huge nerf. If they are the best still they will get the votes, but many of the top pets have been changed a ton and no longer are the pets people voted for.

I have 3 of these now. I am currently holding one for a friend.


Important: If you engage her and she is using Unholy Ascension as her slot 3, DISENGAGE and engage her again, I just did, while holding her and she went from slot 3 UNHOLY ASCENSION to HAUNT.


You won't have to worry about her commiting suicide then :)


Happy Hunting!

The unborn Valk will ALWAYS be the first pet (thus, he WILL be the "paw" pet).


She spawns in 3 locales per Northrend zone.


Though she is a great pet, all around, she is ideal for PVP. I run a team that I call "Odin's Own," comprising of the Valk and two Crows (Huginn and Muninn).


Valk starts with curse, then shocks until death. Rezzes and drops Unholy Asc. Two crows come in with synergetic Call Darkness and Nocturnal Strike.

The UA paired with high speed crows hitting hard is unstoppable.

Borean Tundra (47,7) 615p server

Storm Peaks (41,78) 701pm server

Crystalsong (18,57) 720pm server

Sholazar Basin (44,69) 745pm server

All confirmed captures. A few things to consider: They were all in succession, and the "click at the same time" method DOES work.  We gave 5 guildies the pet off 1 spawn. it either despawns because theres a click limit, or it depends on who gets the serverside spawn or the copy spawn, hard to tell. Spawn timers suggest 15 min increments. Hope it helps!

As of 6.0:



1) Haunt does not work during the undead free turn.  I assume it doesn't work because the Val'kyr cannot die as part of the attack's effect.  Could be a bug but why now?



2) Debuffs on the Val'kyr go into a frozen state when it has used Haunt.  You can't avoid things like Curse of Doom or other timed effects on your Val'kyr by using Haunt and staying dead for the remainder of any debuff's duration.


It's still powerful but these are pretty critical to note right now.

I would like to share my modification to the very successful marco that people are using. (I'm sorry, at this point, I don't know who to give credit to for the original.)



/tar Unborn


/stopmacro [noexists]

/script PlaySound("RaidWarning")

/run RaidNotice_AddMessage(RaidBossEmoteFrame,"Unborn Val'kyr", ChatTypeInfo["RAID_WARNING"])


If you have Track "Focus Target" turned ON on your minimap, you'll see the specific location of the /focused spawn.

I did some Haunt tests:


It will damage you for your remaining health.

It can miss - if it does, you just die.

You are dead when haunting a target. So you ignore all damage/healing, but will lose if no pets are alive.

If the pet you haunt dies while haunt is active you die.

If haunt ends on the target, you are reborn with as much health as you had when you used it.

You can use it during undead passive. If haunt then expires before killing the target, you will be reborn alive with 1 health.

So I got mine today (4/16/2016).



I had given up hope on this pet after searching for it for MONTHS. But today my boyfriend asked me to make breakfast. I jokingly said if you want breakfast, you'll hunt for this rare pet for me and if you love me you'll find it. And what do you know...halfway through breakfast I hear him shout that he found it! I ran into the living room and battled and caught it for my own! :D needless to say he earned his breakfast. Haha.

Finally got this pet.  My mage stepped off the city's edge to fall into the forest and complete a cooking quest.  I hit the feather fall and noticed I was coming down on a pet.  I was floating down right on top of one after finally giving up looking... Almost died trying to get my pets together to land and catch it ... and forgot to renew the feather fall.  Splat! But I was alive enough to catch her!!!

@Morphic "Why is this pet good?"


Because of haunt:


-a strong DOT


-a free pet swap of your choice


-val'kyr would count as dead and so AoE moves would only hit 2 rather than 3 team members


-could be used to dodge delayed damage moves like whirlpool, etc if used on the final round


-if you were slower than the val'kyr you can also lose a turn when they haunt if you attempt to hit them, as they would be dead when your hit goes off

Val'kyr are considered "unborn" until they vanquish a creature of high nobility.
