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.

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 Alliance and the Horde fell into a trap when Queen Azshara ordered the use of the Tidestone to part the waters above Nazjatar. Their ships crashed down upon the bottom of the sea. Now both factions and their allies have united to confront and put an end to Queen Azshara. Check out the quest videos below:

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.
BlizzCon 2019 returns to the Anaheim Convention Center on November 1-2. Tickets will be on sale in two waves: Saturday, May 4th; and Wednesday, May 8th at AXS.
Replacing the goody bag of previous years, every ticket purchase comes with a choice of premium BlizzCon Commemorative Collectible statue—either a human footman or orc grunt, celebrating the 25th anniversary of Warcraft.
Mechagon has a daily rotation of Construction Projects that include: the Reclamation Rig, Flame Turrets, Drill Rigs, and Launch Pads. Usually, there are two Construction projects per day.
Talk to Waren Gearhart at Rustbolt (73.15 33.37) to learn what construction projects are available today.
The latest PTR 8.2 build introduced a new quest from Magni Bronzebeard. It has a placeholder that indicates a in-game cutscene will play. Not much to go on about what it entails, but the text confirms the dragonflights have returned and united to assist with the restoration of Azeroth after Sargeras’ sword wounded the world.
WE STAND UNITED
Magni: The work you have done to empower the Heart of Azeroth cannae be understated! With this power, we might just stand a chance o’ savin’ the world.
It’s been a long fight fer certain, and there will be more tae do. But fer now, we’ve got a little gift fer ye!
Let me know when yer ready, champion.
Speak to Magni.
Mechagon has several Rare Elites spread in the present timeline and in the alternate future timeline (via Chromie). Some respawn within 10-20 minutes. Others have odd respawn timers.
Some are extraordinary rare respawns like Bonepicker, and Steel Singer Freza. Some only spawn when a player summons it, or like the one in Junkwatt Depot that requires multiple players to clear the area for a rare to spawn.
Some Rare Elites spawn only during a specific Construction Project. Among them, some spawn underground. The blue dots in the map correspond to hidden cave entrances that are opened by Drill Rigs.
An easy way to track your progress is the Rest in Pistons Achievement located under the Exploration-Battle For Azeroth tab.
The numbers in the map correspond to the Rare Elite name in the table seen beneath the map image. Clicking the Rare Elite name will open a YouTube page in our channel (where available).
There is a total of 35 Rare Elites. Work in progress. This map will be updated as I find them.
After completing the 8.1.5 Heart of Azeroth questline, players will get a visit by a Messenger of the Speaker: an Earthen Guardian. For the Horde, he is located at the Grand Bazaar (near the Port of Zandalar flightmaster).
He provides the quest titled Return to the Heart. This grants access to the Heart Forge.
