After reading up on the Voidtalon of the Dark Star, I flew around Draenor trying to pinpoint all the known spawn points earlier in the day. Frostfire Ridge and Shadowmoon Valley appeared to be the easiest locations since their spawn points are all in close proximity to each other. You can essentially camp three locations at once, making either zone, a great place to log out.
When the servers came back, I logged onto my Alliance priest who was already hovering at the base of Socrethar’s Rise in Shadowmoon Valley. After a quick flyby, I logged onto my main to check the locations in Frostfire and Gorgrond, hanging around Everbloom, just in case the portal was linked to the daily.
An hour after the servers came back, I logged back onto my Alliance toon to find a portal had spawned directly below me at 50.4, 71.3. I raced down to click it (while attempting to take a pic) before anyone arrived.
As soon as you do, the portal disappears triggering a solo scenario queue. This is quite similar to the mysterious camel figurine in Uldum so be quick to use the portal if you see one.
I have to admit, I was expecting the scenario to involve some sort of combat but when I realised you just can just zone in and loot the egg, it was very anticlimactic.
Corrupted by the presence of the Dark Star in Draenor, the Voidtalons resisted being broken by the Shadowmoon Clan and were ultimately destroyed by Ner’zhul. Only a single egg remains, lost in the void.
Players will be unable to interact with any future portals but can still group up with friends to increase their chances.
Things to note:
- The portal cannot be targeted by a macro or addon
- It does not show up on your minimap
- There are between three to six portals in each zone
- Only one will be up at a time
- Portals are random and only last a few minutes
- They will despawn and respawn in another location if no-one interacts with it
- The mount will be posted if a cross-realm portal is used
