Darkshore Rare Spawns

Darkshore, a shadowy forest bordered by both mountains and sea, on the north western part of Kalimdor, is home to nine rares. These rares range from level 12 - 19, and for the most part are lower in level toward the northern end of the zone, and get higher in level as you move south. 

Shadowclaw and Strider Clutchmother are two notables in this zone as they can both be tamed by hunters. Shadowclaw is also a unique hunter pet and looks exactly like the alliance Striped Nightsaber mount, making him a nice find for lowbie hunters. He is stealthed, so he can literally sneak right up on you while looking for him if your around his level. Strider Clutchmother travels with two smaller tallstriders which will attack when she is attacked or if you try to tame her.

All of these rare are on incredibly fast re-spawn timers, somewhere in the 10-15 minute range sounds about right. I actually leveled one of my ironman toons from level 12 to 24 on three rares in the zone without questing at all. As you can see from the screenshot below, I repeatedly killed Strider Clutchmother (20 times), Shadowclaw (49 times) and Lord Sinslayer (38 times). You can also see in the screenshot that Lord Sinslayer had last been seen only 9 minutes before I started attacking him in the shot. (I believe I was actually working on another blog entry while this toon waited shadowmelded for the re-spawns.) ;)
