Blasted Lands Rare Spawns

Blasted Lands is a desolate zone, largely inhabited by demons and orgres on the south eastern corner of the Eastern Kingdoms. It is home to the Dark Portal - the passageway to Outland, as well as fourteen different rares ranging from level 55 -60.

Rares in the Blasted Lands are a little special compared to other rares found throughout Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor. Each one of these rares has a 50/50 chance to drop either an Imperfect Draenethyst Fragment, or a Flawless Draenethyst Sphere in addition to the typical green item.

The Imperfect Draenethyst Fragment and Flawless Draenethyst Spheres each start a quest. The Imperfect Draenethyst Fragment starts One Draenei's Junk, which rewards Kum'isha's Junk. The Flawless Draenethyst Sphere starts Kum'isha's Endeavors, which rewards Emerald Encrusted Chest. Kum'ishas Junk will give you a nice random green-quality item, and the Emerald Encrusted Chest will always give a nice blue-quality item and often times an additional green-quality item as well. Both of these quests can be turned in to Kum'isha the Collector, a level 60 lost one (who also happens to be a ghost). Kum'isha can be found standing inside of a crater just north of where Ravage spawns. (See above right Screenshot - click to enlarge.)
Hunting down the rares in this zone can prove to be a pretty fun and quick way to make some decent gold for anyone willing to spend a few minutes here and there looking for these guys. (I often times find about half to two-thirds of these guys up at a time when I go looking in the morning before work.) Many of the green items received from turning the quests in, and from the rares themselves are armor pieces often sought after for transmogrification. It is not uncommon to get pieces of the Revenant Plate, Templar PlateLord's Mail, Ornate Mail, Engraved Mail, Masterwork MailEmerald Plate, Hyperion PlateNightshade Leather, Murcurial Mail, Swashbuckler's Leather, Righteous Leather and other sought after sets.

Some of the blue items from the Emerald Encrusted Chests also have the potential to sell for a pretty penny. Blade of the Titans, Aegis of Stormwind, Axe of Rin'ji, Executioner's Cleaver, Hanzo Sword, and Warmonger are just a small cross-section of the items you may find in any one of the chests. The Chests also have the potential to contain enchants, plans, schematics, patterns and even the incredibly rare epic item. If you don't want to bother turning in the quests or gambling on the items, both the Imperfect Draenethyst Fragments and Flawless Draenethyst Spheres can be sold (and even sold in stacks) on the auction house.

Hunters - Spiteflayer, Grunter, Clack the Reaver and Ravage are all tamable. (Deatheye will also be tamable when Mists of Pandaria releases, and he's getting a new pink/purple and red unique skin.)

Spiteflayer has a unique yellow & black skin. You can read a little more about Spiteflayer and Grunter on their own posts on this blog, which I linked above.
