Ghostcrawler is a rare spectral crab that patrols the entire Abandoned Reef area of Vashj'ir. It will also randomly phase in and out much like a warp stalker making locating it that much more of a challenge.

Ghostcrawler will phase out every 15 to 30 seconds, even while in combat, making defeating him solo or in a small group impossible. This is done to give hunters the ability to tame the beast without having other players kill it first.

  • 4,460 - 6,625 Damage
  • 11,092 Armor
  • Tameable (Exotic)


Ghostcrawler can be defeated with eight or more well geared 85 players (no specific tank or healer is needed). The short window of combat makes high burst DPS a must. He drops no gold but does drop a single tear like other intended hunter pets. Thus is certainly not worth the effort required to defeat him.
