Arathi Highlands Rare Spawns

Arathi Highlands is a large grassy zone in southeastern Lordaeron. Arathi has several notable features including great circles of binding protected by elementals, the ruins of Stormgarde Keep which has been overrun by ogres and syndicate, and the Thandol Span - a massive dwarf-made bridge connecting Arathi to the Wetlands. This zone is also home to ten rare spawns ranging from level 26-29.

An interesting thing to note about the rares in Arathi Highlands, is that none of them actually patrol around once they've spawned in.

Kovork can be found at the end of the cave at Boulderfist Outpost. Geomancer Flintdagger waits at the end of the cave east of Hammerfall (Drywhisker Gorge). Zalas Witherbark can be found just inside the cave at Witherbark Village.

Prince Nazjak has four different underwater spawn points in Faldir's Cove, but once spawned in he doesn't patrol between them. He can usually be found inside one of the sunken ships.

Singer can be found inside the small house at Northfold Manor staring at the fireplace. Be careful when engaging her on low level toons, and ironmen toons especially - she has a mind control ability and she can and will use it.

    1. Sometimes you have to go out of your way a wee little bit. =)

      They're spawn timers aren't very long. If you look for em, you'll eventually find em!

  2. It took ages before I saw that naga. I don't think I ever saw him levelling through the area on any of my toons but I was determined to see him once I was publishing all the different areas in my 'Silver Dragons' posts.

    1. hmmm I'm not sure what that may have been, it must have been something in the level 40ish range I'm going to guess because he used to be level 41 before cata. Unfortunately I never saw him once before he changed.

  4. I love watching the Stevies in action. I've never seen even one of these rares. I should use a land mount instead of flying all the time.
