- For the Pet Battle ability of the same name, see .
One of the oldest pet abilities still in the game, turtles who knew Shell Shield were initially highly sought after by hunters for soloing content or attempting to off-tank in dungeons. Prior to the Echoes of Doom patch (3.0.2), the only low-level turtles to know the ability were Kresh in the Wailing Caverns and Ghamoo-Ra in Blackfathom Deeps, making them popular and common pets around Azeroth.
- Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): All turtles now know Shell Shield upon taming.
