Direhorns are three-horned dinosaurs found mainly on the Isle of Giants and the Isle of Thunder. These saurian titans populate many islands in the South Seas.[2] The Zandalar tribe have tamed and armored direhorns, as well as 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.[3]

Even at a tiny size, direhorns are known to wreak havoc on unsuspecting victims.[4] There is an old Zandalari saying about wild direhorns: "Run!"[5]

Direhorns were added in patch 5.2.0 as a tamable pet family for Hunters that have learned the required skill. Aspiring direhorn owners should seek out clues regarding these auspicious beasts. The direhorn's special ability, [Reflective Armor Plating], 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.

Trivia

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 the aforementioned genera.
