Magria



Magria is a rare spirit beast cat with approximately 232k health and is located in Mount Hyjal in The Regrowth. She is one of 10 new rares put in place as a challenge for hunters to tame in patch 4.2.  (Full list at bottom of page)


I have highlighted the area she patrols in purple on the map below. Magria shares a spawn timer with Ankha who is a very similar looking spirit beast. (Magria has a very pretty blue hue.) Their spawn timer is somewhere between 6 and 17 hours. The NPCScan id for her is 54319, you will need to add it to NPCScan in order for it to find her. You also need to have completed enough quests in Mount Hyjal to have unlocked the daily quests at The Sanctuary of Malorne to be able to see Ankha and Magria. The final quest before unlocking the dailies is Aessina's Miracle.


Magria is a tamable hunter pet. (Non-hunters, don't even attempt her. Not only does she not drop any loot, she'll also kick your ass AND you shouldn't be trying to kill these hunter pets anyway.) A very important thing to note before attempting to tame her is her Metal Cleaver ability. This ability allows Magria to deal additional damage to armored targets. The more armor you have on, the harder she will hit. As you can see in the video below my character is completely naked. (Yes I do have on a hat, but it's the Pilgrim's Hat so that I could tame in style.) The best way to make sure you can quickly take off all of your gear and tag her before someone else is to use the equipment manager to make a "naked" set with absolutely no gear. You can leave on things like tabard, shirt, rings, weapon etc. so long as your armor rating is 0.  When she appears switch to the "naked" set, make sure you tag her and tame away!

Please note that because Magria is a spirit beast, she can only be tamed by hunters that have the top-tier talent from the Beast Mastery tree Beast Mastery which allows the taming of exotic pets.


In my excitement, when Magria spawned I missed the first couple of seconds of her leaving her spawn point. In the video below though you can see her running out from behind the trees right next to where she spawns.



I have circled the place where I watched her spawn in on the screenshot below.

  3. Longed on for my third day camping, with a busy schedule, and there the cat was. Had to fly to location that surrounding mobs wouldn't attack me. Be naked and be smart. I am now using your guide for TLPD. Yes, I do use NPCScan.

  10. Ok, I though I would share some info that I know about both Ankha and Magria. Their spawn timer is between 6-17 hours, kind of like the lava spiders. They patrol the regrowth area and if you have track beasts on, their dot is yellow so it'll be easy to locate them. Like Karkin and Skarr, it is a 50% chance of either one showing up. Although, some people say Ankha is more likely to show than Magria. This could be true, but I believe it is 50-50 for each cat. They spawn in the trees, north of the Molten Front portal. Another thing to note is that these cats spawn where some of the dailies from the Sanctuary of Malorne take place, so they'll be seen. Just like how Ban'thalos is over the Sanctuary. If you want to be all prepared, make an equipment set to take all of your gear off. When I tamed Ankha, I wore Burgy Blackheart's Hat, and I still didn't die and had no armor rating. Another thing I would also like to say is that, there are a certain amount of rares that can be up at one time. So, if in the molten front if all of the spiders are up as well as Skarr/Karkin, Magria nor Ankha will have a good chance of showing up. They could be on there timer still, or the fact that too many rares are up for one to show up. But, this last statement about the rares are all my opinion and yours can always be different. I am not 100% sure, but if you have another reason how all the spiders Skarr/Karkin AND Magria/Ankha, and maybe Ban'thalos, please reply and tell me.
