What are those Mysterious Trashpiles?

As you spend time in Zandalar, you’ll probably notice a few Mysterious Trashpiles scattered around or unusual drops from mobs in the area. However, to interact with these trashpiles, you’ll need to complete Pests from Nokano in The Zocalo, Zuldazar. Alliance players can pick this up from Shaterstone Harbour, Vol’dun.

Completing this first part leads you to Jani (the Loa of Scavengers) and final part of the questline. Jani offers you Curse of Jani which requires you to survive his trial after being transformed into a saurok and reaching the NPC at the far end of the square.

Thief and killer, know dat ya be standin’ before da Patron of Scavengers, da Lord of Thieves, da God of Garbage, Master of Minions, and da Keeper of Secrets.

Ya be standin’ before me in raiment worth entire kingdoms of gold, bearin’ weapons dat cost more than even me most devout and renowned followers will ever earn.

I tink now be a good time ta teach ya a lesson. Maybe show ya high and mighty greatness what it means ta be snappin’ in da gutters.

Avoid aggroing any mobs (including the stealthy spiders in the bushes) or you’ll lose your illusion and have to start again. Once you reach the NPC, right click to ‘bite’ him. This completes your trial and opens up the ability to interact with Jani all over Zandalar.

Haha! Well done, wealthy stranger. When you are about in these lands, keep your eyes open. You never know when one of my children might be pointing you to a useful place.

When you’re out and about, keep an eye out for these cute little blue raptors because it usually means there’s a Mysterious Trashpile nearby. They can be found all over Zuldazar, Vol’dun or Nazmir and when you click one, Jani will either transform you into a saurok so you can perform a certain task or complete a hand-in.

There are 12 Mysterious Trashpiles needed for the Get Hek’d achievement (see playlist on YouTube) and were pretty fun to do. I originally thought you would get the Child of Jani from completing this achievement but it appears you need to purchase this from Happy Holaua in the Horde city for 100 Polished Pet Charms.

Are you looking forward to this?
