WoW Patch 5.2 Rare Elites Guide

Date: Mar 03 2013 Views: ( ) Comments ()

The Isle of Thunder has eleven rare spawns scattered around the island. Ten of these are needed for the achievement Champions of Lei Shen, while one drops a pretty unconventional vanity item.

  • Haywire Sunreaver Construct: Mechanical that patrols the beach south of Ihgaluk Crag. (50.0, 91.6). Notable Loot: Sunreaver Micro-Sentry
  • Mumta: Mogu caster located on top part of the terrace in the Halls of the Grand Imperion in the Court of Bones.
  • Ku'lai the Skyclaw: Zandalari troll who patrols the beach by Za'Tual, on the southwest part of the island (37.6, 83.0}. Be sure to kill the Tamed Pterrorwing first.
  • Goda: Large turtle who appears to be stuck in a tree when you come upon him in the Diremoor. (53.7, 53.1)
  • Progenitus: Saurok at the top of the highest cliff in Ihgaluk Crag, who wants to throw you off by casting Unleash Blood. To reach his location, you'll need to jump with a speed boost or have Skin of the Saurok on to make the gap.
  • Al'tabim the All-Seeing stands next to a starry cauldron on the northern shore by the Beast Pens. (44.6, 29.6).
    • Al'tabim the All-Seeing used to be on Yojamba Isle, back when the Zandalari were friendly trolls in vanilla. He helped cloth-wearers get their tier sets.
  • God-Hulk Ramuk was accessible during Stage 2 PTR testing, after players had broken down the outer walls of the Throne of Thunder. Located by the gate to Stormsea Landing in the Conqueror's Terrace. (61.6, 49.8}.
  • Backbreaker Uru was accessible during Stage 3 PTR testing, after players gained control of the Thunder Forge. He patrols the entrance to the Lightning Vein Mine. (38.2, 28.6).
  • Lu-Ban was accessible during Stage 3 PTR testing, after players gained control of the Thunder Forge. He is to the south of the Forge and is standing by a prized Mogu hammer (54.4, 35.8).
  • Molthor was accessible during Stage 4 PTR testing, after players gained control of Stormsea Landing. He is located in the tower above the gate.
    • Fun fact: Molthor used to be on Yojamba Isle, back when the Zandalari were friendly trolls in vanilla.
In addition, there is one more rare spawn on the island, Ra'sha. While he is not needed for Champions of Lei Shen, he will be sought after for his Ra'sha's Sacrificial Dagger, an item that insta-kills you on use in a bloody splatter.

These rare elites drop items similar to what's found in Trove of the Thunder King, most notably Shan'ze Ritual Stone and Key to the Palace of Lei Shen.

Rare spawns in 5.2 have different tagging mechanics than rare spawns from 5.0. Players outside of a part can help take down a rare spawn and still get credit, as well as 15 Valor Points. However, the health of the mob will increase, as noted in the video.
