When I first heard about Vashj’ir, I couldn’t wait to explore the zone – although my love for the area soon changed after I started questing for about an hour. The zone itself is still visually stunning though.
I absolutely love underwater themes which is why my Tier 11 remains one of my all-time favourites. You could also include starfish, seashells, SSC, mermaids, Poesidus, my sea pony (who I’ve contemplated calling Cymre – seahorse and bubbles? I mean, come on!
There’s even a coral reef just off the coast of Uldum although not nearly as colourful or vast.
But you just never know who you might find if you look hard enough…
This post is part of IntPiPoMo – posting 50 screenshots in 30 days.
Poseidus is a rare elite seahorse which drops the unique epic mount Reins of Poseidus.
He remains a very hard mount to own due to his long respawn rate, said to range from 72-120 hours. However, the mount itself is BoE and has been seen from time to time in the AH at ridiculous prices.
There are five spawn spots, one in Abyssal Depths and four in Shimmering Expanse.
If it wasn’t enough that I managed to get my Grey camel from Dormus late last night, I was gob smacked to see Poesidus pop up on my screen today. Before today I had never seen him, not even his corpse. My first thought was, is he dead or already in combat? When I targeted him he was full health and coming straight for me. So I quickly engaged him in combat trying to take a few screenshots before I killed him. For those wondering, I managed to spot him at this last location. Not surprisingly, he’s an easy kill for an 85.
Poseidus has three abilities:
- Bubble Charge – Charge the target in a shower of bubbles, dealing Frost damage.
- Bubblebeam – Shoot bubbles in a cone in front of the caster, dealing Frost damage.
- Seascape – Attempt to escape from combat and regenerate health. Damage taken will remove the heal effect.
I didn’t notice any attempt to escape on his part since I killed him so fast but his Bubblebeam you can see in the first picture.
Unlike the Vashj’ir seahorse you get from questing in the zone, the Poseidus mount can be used in any body of water. In addition to the 300% swimming speed (at Artisan Riding skill), it offers something different to the Sea Turtle fished up from the Northrend fishing pools.
Two rare mounts in 12 hours!! I seem to be having the same type of luck as Roshii today :D Hmm, I wonder if Aeonaxx or Time Lost are up ;P Maybe I should invest in a lottery ticket…
You may have heard of Lady Gaga but have you met Lady La-La?
Then let me introduce you to the rare found in the Kelp’thar Forest of Vashj’ir.
She has 2 rather interesting abilities:
- Briny Romance – Catch the enemy in a briny romance. Deals Frost damage every 3 sec. for 15 sec (seen on my cat) and
- Siren’s Song – Cause all nearby enemies to just dance!
When you first engage her you can hear music playing. On closer inspection you realise it’s coming from her… hence the name and outfit :P
All in all, we took our time killing her because she is by far the most interesting and amusing rare we’ve come across in a long time.
