Rares

May be found in several locations around the Celestial Court

Timeless Isle Rares

15

With an abundance of rares on the Isle, it was just a matter of time before I encountered each one. Quite a few of them require some sort of interaction before they will spawn which makes it a fun endeavour to discover them all. Never-the-less I’m still surprised by the sheer number of rares on this mysterious Isle.

By now you’ve probably seen the Zandalari Warbringers around the place, maybe even a lone Pterodactyl and the not so stealthy Warscouts traversing the zone. Although I always thought it was kind of amusing how you could see the scouts a fair distance away – as I spotted one while doing a fabled pet battle that first day.

Warbringers

There are only three Warbringers which can spawn in five locations around Pandaria. Each one is defined by the colour of mount he rides which has a small chance to drop if you’re very lucky. As a 92 rare elite, they are easily killed with just two people, as Cool and I have proved on numerous occasions. However, they do not share a tag like the Isle of Thunder rares so you’ll have to be quick if you want a chance at the spoils. Recently, the warbringers were hotfixed so they couldn’t be taunted which may be a welcome addition for some.

Just like War-God Dokah, the Warbringers share five abilities but will only use four at a time:

Each Warbringer can drop a combination of the following:

but with such a small drop rate for the mount, I have yet to see one.

Warscout

Warscout

At the same time, two Warscouts may be found walking in opposite directions from each Warbringer location with three of the above buffs active. These scouts should be soloable by every class and can drop the same items as the Warbringers (excluding the mounts) albeit less loot compared to their more difficult counterparts.

So good luck and happy hunting.

For a small zone, it’s quite impressive to see so many points of interest for anyone passing through the area. In fact, it’s the breadcrumb quest which leads you from the Valley of Four Winds and into Kun-Lai Summit, particularly if you’re 87.

Apart from a couple of local quests, you’ll find the current location of Wrathion in this expansion as well as the Terrace of Endless Spring raid. For a couple of XP boosts, don’t forget to loot the Forgotten Lockbox on the second floor of the Tavern in the Mists and the The Hammer of Folly – part of the Riches of Pandaria achievement.

Hammer of Folly

Behind the inn, you’ll see a number of familiar faces, including some of the combatants you encounter at the Temple of the White Tiger.

The Wrestler

Then if you head under the Inn, you’ll find an interesting NPC who is not without some perks of his own.

Tweek

But if you’re a fan of the BMAH, you might even run into a rare named Willy Wilder – a play on Willy Wonka and Gene Wilder which fans of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will instantly recognise. Not surprising when his abilities are Violets and Blueberries and Stuffed. He appears to spawn just outside the BMAH only to walk inside to bid on a Blood-Soaked Invitation which he then wins.

Excitedly, he then runs outside saying:

YES! Finally! I won a Brawler’s Guild invite! Nobody can stop me now!
I won a Brawler’s Guild invitation just now! I’ll surely be rank 8 by tonight! I sure hope I don’t lose my ticket before I get there.
Everyone look! I won a Brawler’s Guild invite! I can’t wait to try it out!

…so it’s not surprising that he is guaranteed to drop a Blood-Soaked Invitation when killed.

I guess I wasn’t ready to be a brawler.

Apparently, if you choose not to kill him, he runs all the way down the Path of a Hundred Steps and promptly despawns at the bottom.

Question of the Day: What is the craziest/most expensive thing you’ve bought from the BMAH to date?
