Now unlike the Darkmoon Rabbit, Moonfang doesn't just spawn in out of the blue. She will only appear after many other (lesser) wolves have been slain throughout the forest. Killing enough non-elite level 89-90 Moonfang Snarlers, will cause a handfull of elite Moonfang Dreadhowls to spawn. The Dreadhowls are more difficult to kill and have a lot more health, but they are soloable. Killing these will eventually lure Moonfang out of her "den". Moonfang spawns right near the "corpse tree" just north of the fairgrounds. I marked the location on the map below. Her spawn timer is roughly an hour.
The fight itself isn't incredibly difficult, but she does have some abilities that you should be aware of.
- Leap for the Kill - Leap at the target. Enemies in melee range are knocked down and suffer 300% weapon damage as Physical damage. This ability will kill most people, and you have only a second warning before she'll land on you - when she does, SPLAT.
- Moonfang's Tears - Inflicts weapon damage as Arcane damage every 2 sec. to all enemies in an area for 12 sec. These will be very obvious. Just move out of the white circle on the ground ASAP.
- Moonfang's Curse - Enemies within 10 yards are transformed into half-wolf servants of Moonfang for 5 min. This will transform players into badass-looking pre-cata style worgen. You'll buff her and help her out and whatnot. Run away asap when you see her casting it.
- Call the Pack - Summons one Darkmoon Wolf for every enemy within 40 yards. Dps should aoe these down otherwise they'll end up eating your healers.
|Moonfang's Spawn Point|
Shimmering Moonstone is the item that summons a rideable Moonfang. When you summon this mount moonlight will appear all around and then disappear a few seconds later. The glowing crescent moon over it's head will remain.
Using /mountspecial will get this lovely mount howling at the the moon.
Unfortunately this mount cannot be learned. The moonstone will remain in your bag, which you can use to summon this temporary mount. It can only be used while the Darkmoon Faire is in town, and will disappear when the faire leaves.

Anyone who assists in the fight can loot her, and loot is personal just like the Timeless Isle rares.
For anyone interested, I made a short(ish) video showing how to lure Moonfang out of her den, and then of the fight itself. Enjoy!
