"When ya fight alongside raptors, ya want a mount dey can't eat."
-Unknown dinomancer[1]

Direhorns are three-horned dinosaurs making their first appearance during the Mists of Pandaria,[2] on the Isle of Giants. These saurian titans populate many islands in the south seas including the Isle of Giants.[3] The Zandalari have armored their tamed Direhorn and other dinosaurs for use as living war engines to aid them in defending the Throne of Thunder and their allies, the Mogu, on the Isle of Thunder.

The Zandalari breed specific Direhorn species for their small size for use as mounts.[4]

Even at a tiny size, direhorns are known to wreak havoc on unsuspecting victims.[5] There is an old Zandalari saying about wild direhorns: "Run!"[6]

Direhorns have been added as a tameable species for Hunters that have learned the required skill. Aspiring Direhorn owners should seek out clues regarding these auspicious beasts. The direhorns special ability allows them to deflect all spells cast in front of them.

In order to tame a direhorn, hunters will need find an  [Ancient Tome of Dinomancy], which drops from the Zandalari Dinomancers on the Isle of Giants.


While mostly comparable to the iconic Triceratops dinosaur, Direhorns actually combine visual elements of several ceratopsid and ankylosaur genera, such as Triceratops, Styracosaurus and Ankylosaurus. They are also similar to Stegadons from Warhammer Fantasy Battles, which also are a combination of aforementioned genera.
