These are the 8.2 Nazjatar World Quests for both the Horde and Alliance factions.
Work in progress.
Nazjatar Rare Elites Map has several Rare Elites throughout the zone that behave similar to what we experienced in Argus. Sometimes they show up in the zone map, and as you get closer to them the mini-map will make a ping sound and animation.
The numbers in the map correspond to the number in the list below the image. Clicking the name of the Rare Elite will open a YouTube video.
Note: TomTom coordinates available in the videos (launch the video by clicking the rare elite’s name).
Some of these Nazjatar rare elites drop pets, a few spawn only when a world quest to slay them is up, and some have extremely high respawn timers. A few of these rare elites spawn in multiple different locations, but don’t worry. I have marked the locations I encountered. For example, Sandclaw Stoneshell (which drops a pet) spawns in at least 7 locations throughout Zin-Azshari.
8.2 Nazjatar Rare Elites Map
This map shows the location of capturable Battle Pets (green) and those with a yellow icon found in Nazjatar. The map will be updated as new content is added by Blizzard.
The numbers in the map correspond to the Battle Pet name in the list shown below the image.
A few days ago, I looted an Arcane Reagent item named Strange Volcanic Rock: “Bring to a Pyroclasmic Arcanocrystal to charge it, empowering the Elemental Essence Amalgamator with the power of fire.”
I had no idea what it was for until I found a grey quest (meaning it is underground) in the mini-map while navigating through Nazjatar’s Azsh’ari Terrace. Inside a cave you can find The Laboratory of Mardivas. The quest with the same namesake is given by a floating book: Mardiva’s Tome of the Elements.
The 8.2 Nazjatar Questline starts with the rescue of Baine Bloodhoof who is slated for execution beneath Orgrimmar, where you align with Thrall and Saurfang to infiltrate the Siege of Orgrimmar scenario. Uniting with Jaina Proudmoore and Mathias Shaw, Baine’s life is secured. Then Lor’themar and First Arcanist Thalyssra now spearhead the way through Nazjatar in search of allies to face the Rise of Azshara.
Note: Work in progress. All Nazjatar quest videos will be added throughout the next weeks.
Nazjatar is now available for testing in the World of Warcraft 8.2 PTR servers. The zone is immense in size taking me 1:45 to fully explore it, and there were definitely some areas I missed.
The zone is layered in low and high ground and felt a lot like an Argus 2.0. Elites are shown directly in the map and the mini-map. They also ping the mini-map. Definitely Argus 2.0.
