Western Plaguelands Rare Spawns

Western Plaguelands has a total of nine rares (10 if you include Putridius who is technically in Scholomance). All of them seem to be on similar spawn timers, which are roughly somewhere in the range of 30 minutes to 2 hours. They do not share spawn timers. As a matter of fact, one morning when I made my loop looking for them I found eight up out of the nine. 

None of them have any wild and crazy abilities worth noting. I was able to take all of them down easily at level with Ironstevo who is essentially naked and has no talent points. Like all low level rares, these all give an incredible amount of experience for toons around their level. If your interested in seeing just how much xp they give, check out the video at the bottom of this post.

As promised here is a color-coded map of where each of these rares can be found. I have also indicated each rare's level to the left of it's name. ~

For those who prefer to see visuals of said rares, here are all of them completely unmolested just as you would find them out in the world. (Color coding with each rare's name under the pictures also correspond to the map above.) ~

The Husk, Foulmane & Scarlet High Clerist
Scarlet Interrogator, Scarlet Executioner & Scarlet Smith
Dreadwhisper, Lord Maldazzar & Scarlet Judge
For anyone who would like to see these rares in action (and killed by a warlock with 0 gear and talents) check out this video. ~

                                         

As someone was kind enough to mention in the comments, there is one additional rare in this zone that I forgot to mention, and that is Putridius the level 40 undead abomination. Putridius is technically in Scholomance (even though he is outside the actual instance). Because he isn't listed as actually being in WPL, he doesn't show up on SilverDragon or even on WoWhead's list of npc's that reside in Western Plaguelands. He's definitely still around though, and when he is up he's very easy to find. He doesn't patrol at all, he literally stands there right in the entryway before you turn left into the instance portal.


1/12/13 Update: This zone had ten new rares added in patch 5.1. To check them out please see this post: Western Plaguelands - Tamable Rares added in 5.1

  1. I'm still missing that Interrogator from my list. Hopefully I'll see him one day.

    1. Luckily he spawns right near a flight path making him probably one of the least annoying ones to try and find. For me the toughy was Foulmane, that darn ghoul was almost never up when I went looking for him.

    2. Did I not send you a pic of him?

      Personally he's my absolute favourite of the zone simply because of his sandwich rant.

    3. Hehe, the poor dude is so hungry. "I haven't eaten in weeks; this bread is mine! FOR THE SANDWICH!"

  2. I feel pretty stupid, lol! I watched the video and realized Ironsally never used Sacrifice. It didn't show up on his bar and guess I thought it was something that came through training and never checked the Void's spellbook. I am a big dummy! Go Stevo, you rare finding machine!

    1. lol oh no!!! I use it on just about every other fight, I couldn't imagine doing the challenge without it. Look at it this way though ancient, you added another self-imposed rule for yourself -- no sacrifice. That just makes the fact that you got Ironsally to 85 that much more awesome. =D

  3. Nice! I'm working on a post for EPL. Haven't tackled WPL lately though.

    1. WPL was fun, I love how all of the rares there are (for the most part) pretty close together, and most were up when I went looking for them. EPL though, holy moly...there is one that I'm having the hardest time finding. Nothing drives me crazier than rares that spawn right smack in the middle of a quest hub. rabble rabble!

      Oh and btw, and I'm loving your rares series Cymre. You've got some phenomenal screen shots! ^-^

    3. Thanks for pointing that out about Putridius. I did kind of forget about him, for some reason I had in my mind that he was a dungeon spawn.

      He actually spawns right in the entryway to Scholomance, and although technically not inside of the instance he is classified as being a rare in Scholomance. Because of this, he also won't show up on SilverDragon as a rare in WPL. =(

      I'll post a screenshot of where you can find him on this post when I get a chance. Ultimately when I start writing about rares in dungeons I will mention this guy (although technically not inside the dungeon).

      Thanks again!

  4. There is also Mange and Tracker, two rare spawns in the eastern part of this map. One is a bear, the other one is a dog.

    1. This post was written pre-patch 5.1 where there were actually ten new rares added to the zone. I plan on covering all of them, but it's going to take me some time. ;)
