Badlands Rare Spawns

There are a total of nine rare spawns in the Badlands. They range from level 46 - 48 and three of them can be tamed by hunters. One of them, Zaricotl, has a totally unique skin and is tamable by hunters in any spec who are at least level 48.

They do not share spawn timers and they all seem to be on fairly similar timers which range somewhere in the 30min to 2hr + range.

Here is a map where all of their spawn points/patrol areas are. ~

1/25/13 Update: There were eight new rares added to this zone in patch 5.1. To learn more about them, check out this post: Badlands - Tamable Rares added in 5.1.


  1. I see Zaricotl got a new skin for Cataclysm...and a new level. Bugger used to be SIGNIFICANTLY higher than the rest of the zone and I remember the day he one shotted my questing Rogue. It was back in the Burning Crusade days. I called in a 68 Feral Druid to reprimand that bird!

    1. Yeah, I personally think he looks a lot better now than his old red model. And holy moly, I also remember when he was terrifying back in the day. I think he probably killed me more than once. rabble rabble...

  2. There is another rare Kalixx, it is like a bug looking thing. It spawns half-way between the Shadowforge Commander, and northern Barricade spawn, along the mountains. It is level 48

    1. there were many new rares added in 5.1. I'll cover them when I get the time.

    2. ...and some time I've had recently. Here are all eight new rares in this zone: Badlands - Tamable Rares added in 5.1
