Poseidus is a rare elite seahorse which drops the unique epic Reins of Poseidus.
He remains a very hard mount to own due to his long respawn rate, said to range from 72-120 hours. However, the mount itself is BoE and has been seen in the AH at ridiculous prices from time to time.
There are five spawn spots, one in Abyssal Depths and four in Shimmering Expanse.
See my video of all spawn locations.
Not only was I taken on my own whirlwind trip last night, I was gob smacked to see Poesidus pop up on my screen because I had never seen any physical proof he existed before today. When I targeted him, he was at full health and coming straight towards my location. OMG! I couldn’t believe my luck so I quickly engaged him, trying to take a few screenshots before I finally killed him. For those wondering, I managed to spot him at this last location. Not surprisingly, he’s an easy kill for an 85.
Poseidus has three abilities:
- Bubble Charge – Charge the target in a shower of bubbles, dealing Frost damage.
- Bubblebeam – Shoot bubbles in a cone in front of the caster, dealing Frost damage.
- Seascape – Attempt to escape from combat and regenerate health. Damage taken will remove the heal effect.
Since I killed him so fast, I didn’t notice any attempt to escape but you can just see his Bubblebeam in that first picture.
Unlike the other seahorse you get in Vashj’ir, Poseidus can be used in any body of water.
That’s two rare mounts in 12 hours!!
Hmm, I wonder if Aeonaxx or Time Lost are up?
