I’ve been searching for this staff since the beta as it was one of the few lost treasures I really wanted to find. Tonight my search was finally over. Feeling somewhat lucky after taming Savage yesterday, I thought I’d do some questing in the Valley. It wasn’t long before the quests led me to the Hidden Master so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to check all the spawn spots for this lost treasure.
I was only familiar with a couple of the spots having seen some of the screenshots on WoWHead. With the quests I picked up, I took my time checking each set of co-ordinates staying in the area for about two hours – killing multiple mobs, collecting eggs and finishing my trials.
After completing the chain, I decided to check each spawn spot one last time so I started killing the beasts around the first set of trees. Knowing I was on the wrong side of the tree, I hovered my mouse around the base and couldn’t believe my eyes. I saw the ‘Staff of the Hidden Master‘ text come up. CRAP! I had to kill these things quick!
So I killed the handful of mobs while manoeuvring myself around the area in an attempt to take a pic of the staff sticking out of the tree before someone came along and grabbed it before I could. Luckily, no one did.
Now all I need is a staff to mog :)
