I’ve been travelling a lot between ZG, Grom’gol, Loch Modan, Scholo and the Dark Portal lately. So much so, I’ve been getting a lot of new Silver Dragon sightings. There are others I’ve collected over the past few months but they sit in a folder waiting to be edited and uploaded. Since so many were added post-Cata, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to add them into my current zone collections but here’s what I’ve been seeing lately.
I was particularly happy to see this rare since he’s been missing from my Northern Stranglethorn post for over a year.
These next three in Western Plaguelands are in close proximity to each other although I wasn’t expecting to see a huge parasite in the lake around Scholo. Eww.
One of the new exotic pets found in Burning Steppes.
Both of these beasts are native to Arathi Highlands although Chops may be found along the zone border.
Now the rare I’d like to see the most is Doctor Theolen Krastinov in Scholo. I’ve been checking every day but still no luck. I’ll just add that to the list with the Spineclaw drop, the mace from Garrosh, a transformation (finally), and the mechbuilder overalls which Cool was kind enough to draw in chibi/Astroboy form.
With a list like that, surely my unlucky streak has to break soon.
These mobs are now listed as rare spawns in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. They are also a requirement for the achievement One Many Army and drop the new cooking ingredients, Elixir of Wandering Spirits and Treasures of the Vale.

|Gaohun the Soul-Severer: Just as you enter the main chamber of Guo-Lai Halls.|

This is possibly one of the coolest rare spawns on the Timeless Isle. As I mentioned before, a few need some sort of event or interaction before they will appear and this is no exception. First you need to kill Evermaw, the rare elite whale shark that swims around the entire Isle and loot the Mist-Filled Spirit Lantern he drops.
Then head to the Misty Strand and use the lantern at the Cursed Gravestone. This will summon the Dread Ship Vazuvius. Note the lantern is a conjured item so only lasts an hour which is probably why you don’t always see the gravestone. I suspect the shrine is only active as long as Evermore is alive and probably up to an hour afterwards unless someone summons the ship within that timeframe.
Once the ship is destroyed, you can loot the spoils which includes 1000x Timeless Coins and the Rime of the Time-Lost Mariner - another transformation item.
The buff lasts for 15mins while the item has a 2hr CD and no limitation on where you can use it.
Edit: In the latest PTR build, the item no longer affects your mounts.
Also, the ship now has a knockback if you’re in melee range which I noticed when trying to loot the ship.
