The Official Aeonaxx Thread
Return to board index
I've started my Aeonaxx camping March 4, 2014. I've not moved my hunter an inch, except for going to Hyjal to unlock Magria and Ankha/Ban'thalos, and twice going to Storm Peaks to patrol TLPD's route. The subtle beating of wings play in the background, with the sizzle of the hippogryph's tail. The deepholm music, I fell deeply in love with, soothes me.
No Aeonaxx spotted, nor Blood Seeker.
I've been patrolling for around 3 hours now, nothing spotted.
A troll hunter starts spazzing in front of me, and tries to shoot me, but alas, falls to his death.
After two minutes of his endless torrent of shots, crows, and falls, he lands on a pillar to hearth. I land after him, taunting him. I pull out my loque'nahak, Desire, and he pulls out his. We move left and right rapidly before he oneshots me (I was level 86), and hearths.
I ressurect, and I continue my journey.
I come across an orc shaman, who is flaunting his Phosphorescent Stone Drake near the entrance of the Earth Pillar. He dismounts and boards his Vitreous Stone Drake.
What a showoff.
No Aeonaxx spotted, nor Blood Seeker.
I've patrolled an hour, constantly switching, logging, and camping.
The routine is normal. I fly off to Jadefang's lair, but she's not there.
So I fly back and sit there, while watching some youtube videos.
NPCScan blares in my ear, and I scream.
It was a false alarm, caused by a tamed Blood Seeker.
I don't know if it's possible to tame him, maybe it was a bug.
I get back to my duties, sadly.
I count the horde today, and a total of 13 have come today. 2 alliance.
It's lonely here.
3 are camping the Quartzite spawn, while one hunter, who I seeth in rage just thinking about him, camps the NW ones.
Here's the catch; Gank-a-topia.
Yep. He would not leave me alone. I fly by him, when I hear the familliar arcane shot, and then, boom, I'm dead.
I watch my corpse fall with him, but he DE's right before he hits the ground, thus saving him from death.
Ressurect. Didn't get my foot out when he Explosive Shots me dead.
Ressurect. I fly away quickly to another spawn, and round back to check spawns 40 minutes later. Still there. He seems afk, so I do /silly repeatedly when he targets me, and shoots me. I don't die, but he sends a Murder of Crows after me. Luckilly, 280% mount speed outruns the crows (I'm broke, okay?), and I avoid death. He mounts up, Arcane Shot, dead.
This process repeats 4 more times, before I finally Camo and leave.
No, I stopped taunting him after the 1st death, but he camped my corpse.
I come back 3 hours later, still there. I fly on top of him, and he sends a crow after me.
I escape, luckily. Then he leaves. Finally. Serenity to the world.
Screw you, Acope.
I read through the forums to find a less populated server, and I'm making my new Nelf Priest on Rivenholdt, the server with no CRZ, praise the lord. And it's RPPVP, which should be refreshing.
It's 1:17 am, I'm huddling in my bathroom with a glass of milk, doritos, and a fuzzy blanket. I've put off my priest, who I've childishly named Aeonaxx, for giggles. Takes me forever to level, but I'll do it one day.
I took one round for my hunter, parked in Deepholm. Nothing.
I feel lost, and dumb, and unlucky, and not there at the right time, and sad.
But what overwhelms those, is hope.
Hope for a bright future, of riding my Phosphorescent Drake everywhere.
I'll get you one day, Aeonaxx.
I continue the hunt, parking myself near the stonecore entrance, where most people report he spawns. A shadow priest just sat on top of me and also camps.
Not so fun if he has faster mount speed, due to broke.
Two horde here have TLPD. Jealousy growing.
No alliance so far, except a DK who flew into the portal as I Tpd in.
8:30am, started priest.
Fellow Aeonaxx camper made a char and, said he freaked out when he got "Aonaxx" in Teldrassil, lol.
Logged on 4 minutes, ago, almost had a heart attack when I saw Aeonaxx. But it wasn't him. It was the same orc shaman who was flaunting it near entrance. He had both the Phosphorescent Drake and Vitreous Stone Drake, so unless in spite and hate, I don't understand what else he needs here.
I'm deciding to stay put most of the time near entrance, and take a round every 4-50 minutes, and sit back on my terrain of camping ton.
I went around to kill the giants for giggles, and I've counted a total of 18 horde, 2 alliance.
I'VE NEVER SMILED SO BIG! NO, I HAVE NOT ATTAINED AEONAXX, BUT I HAVE TAMED THE LEGENDARY SHINY CRAB, KARKIN!
<#333333333 NOW I FEEL WARM AND FUZZY AND READY TO CAMP! :DDDDD
I have not camped Aeonaxx much lately, due to being bored and testing my luck.
In these days I have tamed Ankha, Magria (Thrice, I couldn't get a COO so I just tamed her and renamed her Sapphire, before that I watched a Hordie tame her.) Deleted and reclaimed Karkin, Found Ban'Thalos thrice, (First I deleted Karkin due to full stable, and paranoia, Second I helped a friend tame him, she almost died, phew, and third, I murdered him....I admit to shame and I DID ask everyone in the area if they wanted him.), Deth'Tilac (Twice, Tamed once -I had to leave before I could down him to 20%, so I came back 6 hours later and he was still there, next time I watched a hunter tame him, whom he relates to...) Kirix, (Found him once, tamed while struggling with two other opposing faction hunter) Found Skarr twice, once I tamed and second I observed him and left, Found Skitterflame four times, yet no Anthriss.
I'm planning on leveling my priest to 85 then kicking her into Deepholm, because I literally made a DK just to see the areas, and I went in storm wind, /who'd and one other guy, level 6.
Here are examples of the /whos
Northern Barrens; 0
(Riskily I flew as a 60 dk into Hyjal...lol...didnt work out so well as ranged mobs kept killin me); 2, one hunter who was afk near Nordrassil, and a warrior leveling. Along with one horde but he flew away.
So I feel greattt!
Day 7; Nothing, no rares sighted anywhere. Around 8 people on my side in Deepholm, even more on the Horde.
Day 8; Today I decide "Today is the day, man. You gotta camp seriously if you want that drake."
So as of now, If there is a free spawn point, (It's early morning right now, the only person I've seen is a leveling Belf Hunter) I'm firmly camping it and taking rounds every so often.
I belieeeeeve in myself.
Day 9; Nothing yet, I went to the Molten Front and saw Kirix for a third time. (I go to rare spawn places just to have the satisfaction of hearing the NPC Alarm and seeing it.) A tauren druid and two warlocks tried to kill him, while I rofled on the "taming" rock like a hysterical hyena. He wiped the poor souls. But the tauren stuck around, thought I was trying to tame, but I had him, so he killed Skitterflame and Karkin, and a poor hunter came by during him killing it and nerdraged and ganked him around 15 times before the tauren left, lol.
I've been reading guides and sticking to one spawn point seems to be more efficient with random intervals of flybys, but making it quick.
This mage, "Firefox" has been circling the spawn points for over 2 days, didn't mention him before though. Mage was on 2 days ago, started circling, and never stopped, while I was there. I was on for a couple hours, and his dot flew by every so often. And yesterday, camped for a while, still doing it, and today, I've been camping for a bit over half an hour and he's still doing it. This is why nonCRZ realms are better.
But yep, I have around half an hour left before I gotta go, then I'm logging in around 1am and staying till 3am to camp.
I've come to believe that Blood Seeker is rarer than Aeonaxx in a way. All rares that I encounter never despawn, including Deth'Tilac, Ban'Thalos, Magria, Ankha, Kirix (molten front rares), and Loque'Nahak.
(Deth'Tilac was up for 6 hours on my server, never despawned at all.)
Because he's up for about 3 seconds, it'll be sheer luck if you see the bugger. If you're in the wrong place with Blood Seeker at most times, seeing Aeonaxx will be a bigger chance
I hope that cheers you guys up, even though it could be a waste of time, just remember, you'll most likely see Aeonaxx more than lil bat.
I have been farming (most days 15+ hours and other days, just a pop in) for this mount for 3-4 months now on Tichondrius. I have seen Aeonaxx spawn once (2 months ago in front of Stonecore around 7pm-8:30pm) but I didn't make it to him in time. There were 15 people in Deepholm with me., horde side -__-' I spotted Blood Seeker about a month ago, @ 12:35pm on Zangarmarsh and that's the only time I've ever spotted him and not even on my own realm.
It would help if I had a few friends on lower pop servers to allow me to camp out on their realm. If you would be so kind as to help a fellow camper out, please add me Alenynn#1903.
Happy hunting and GL out there. :)
Edit: Today is a long camp day for me since I am off work today so I thought I'd log it.

85 BE flew by to wish me some luck. >.<
built a campfire for a fellow camper and I. Ishock <-- has been my camping buddy for weeks now. Sup, bro? ;)
Aeonaxx spawned @ NW1 point but I didn't make it in time but my camping buddy, Ishock, ya know, the one I mentioned above, did.
Grats to you, Ishock.

Saturday, April 5th @ between 5:15-5:30pm
I can't exactly pinpoint the time because my heart was racing and I was shaking.
Quick note though, when he spawned, NPCscan did not place the marker on target. I don't know what happened there.
I'll be back, Aeonaxx, though this time, try not to take 4 months for me to see you again.
He has spawned 4 times in the last week. 2 times I was afk, other time my npc scan didn't go off in time and someone else beat me to him. Finally today at 5:15 PM EST, he spawned. I am from the magtheridon-us server. I will tell you some things you probably will find in other posts as well. Download npc scan & npc scan overlay from curse (if you currently don't have it). Make sure to clear your cache for npc scan daily. The reason for this is it might not go off if you have any rares stored already. Second download silver dragon. Another great add on for camping any tough rare (tlpd, poseidus, mysterious camel figurines and aoenaxx). One last tip, if you have access to another account ( ie. I used my wife's) do it. If it wasn't for that I might have missed it. I camped my guy near the quartzite spawns and my wife's character near the nw spawns. The whole spawning where blood seeker previously spawns was inaccurate. Blood seeker spawned near the sw spawn 10 hrs earlier. Aoenaxx spawned in the nw corner. If you do this you are covering all the spawn points. If you video is turned to ultra. You can see the other spawn points if you camp between the two that are closest together. Camped him for about a week straight. Again not sure if the spawn timers are different now or our server has been extremely lucky with 4 spawn times in one week. This mount is a cool looking mount. It was worth my time camping it.
Grats to you! Don't know if you'll see this, but I just got Aeonaxx myself. Friday night, 6/27/201,4 on Wyrmrest Accord server, at 11:23:29 server time, 1:23:29 my time (central standard time). He spawned right beside me where I had just paused in doing circles around the temple, right by the Stonecore entrance where the npcscan overlay shows a spawn point.
Some info...I saw a LOT of rares start spawning in Arathi Basin where I was on another toon working on levelling mining, and just in case I hopped on my pally that I had parked in Deepholm. I've seen a lot of people say Aeonaxx is not on the same timer with other rares except maybe Bloodseeker, but I never saw Bloodseeker in spite of countless rounds of that area very frequently.
I spent around three weeks camping him, and the only rare I saw spawn up until last night was Jadefang. But after I got on my pally, about an hour or so after seeing those others spawn, Xariona spawned, the world boss dragon that flies in a circle high above. I've also seen people say that two rares like that won't spawn at the same time. Yet both of them did show up at close to the same time,
Might be coincidence, but I figure it's still a lot of guesswork and random chance on getting this mount. I do hope any info I share helps someone else to get him, too. I'm still in shock and totally thrilled that I got to make that awesome ride! Good luck! Look me up on my pally Archaeos on Wyrmrest Accord if you have any questions.
I already posted this to the NPC page, but some people might know better to check here as well.
I just got my Aeonaxx kill on Wyrmrest Accord @ approx. 11:27pm PST. I was camping between SW1 and SW2 when NPCscan went off. I turned my camera just in time to see him disappear from view to the left, which means he most likely spawned on SE1, in front of the temple entrance. I raced over and luckily there was no one else around, despite the number of people in the zone at the time. The fight didn't take very long at all as a 537 BM Hunter and his corpse landed nicely among the ravagers for easy looting.

When exiting Stonecore, my rare alert popped and he was off to the right-hand side, flying a little lower than the height of Stonecore and just a ways off from the platform, but close enough to pop an alert the minute I exited the dungeon.
I don't Know if this thread is still active but i'd like to help anyone if possible.

April 16th 2015
After some casual camping in the past months i randomly decided to pass on deepholm to see if i would stop by Aeonaxx. There she was casually flying heading towards the Stonecore entrance. My heart jumped so hard because i hadn't ever heard my npcscan when i saw it... While i approached it npcscan confirmed it was indeed her and not some ^&*!@#$ in his mount that looks like her playing a joke on me. Hopped on and killed her fast, looted the mount.. and went to the stonecore meeting stone. 15 seconds later a guy goes out of the dungeon.. I realized if i was a little bit later he probably would have gotten her.
I got him around 7:45am today (a Friday) on the Misha server. I believe he spawned at the NW1 point. I had fallen asleep camping NW2 when Silver Dragon, NPC Alert and NPC Scan woke me up, so I was disoriented, but I believe I flew to NW1 to get him. Here's the story:
I camped a couple of different points in the area for 3 weeks almost nonstop. I think I was there when the previous poster got him, as I remember it being announced in general chat that someone had downed him around that date. There was only one other mention in general chat that someone had gotten him during the time I was there, but I couldn't confirm and was suspicious it might have been a couple of campers who were trying to get other players to give up and leave.
For me, this camp was worse than TLPD (even though TLPD took me 3x as long to get), because I never saw any proof that anything was spawning. I thought I hated Vyra during my TLPD camp, but at least every time I saw her I knew that the spawn points were working. With Aeonnaxx I didn't see the corpse when the previous poster got him, and I never saw Bloodseeker the bat. I had read a couple of rumors on another site that Aeonaxx was bugged and no longer spawning, so the whole time I was there I had no idea if I was camping something that no longer existed! That's the main reason for this post - to give confirmation to others that he is indeed still spawning.
When NPC Scan trumpeted, NPC Alert's crazy noises sounded, and Silver Dragon's "You are not prepared!" voice jerked me awake, and sent me scrambling for my laptop, I must have looked completely demented. My husband said I totally freaked out the cat and he thought for a second the voice was coming from me and I was possessed. I blinked at the screen for a split second before my brain clicked into gear and I clicked on the NPC Scan target button to see which direction to fly. I could have sworn I saw someone else flying for him out of the corner of my eye, but it could have just been paranoia. I only stopped to breathe once I mounted him. By then my heart was beating so fast and my hands shaking so hard, it took me a few seconds to target him and attack. But at level 100 I one shotted him and it was over as quickly as it had begun.
As a side note, NPC Scan did not go off for TLPD when I got him 3 weeks ago, just before I started my Aeonaxx camp. I am sure he was not cached, and it went off repeatedly for Vyra even when she was already cached. I had read about it no longer being reliable after they changed caching for WoD, and that you now had to target or mouse over NPC's for it to work, but bec/ it went off for both Vyra and also recently for Loque, I assumed it would work for TLPD. It did not, even after I targeted him, and it was only a fluke that I actually got him because I was relying on it. Someone told me afterward that you have to add TLPD's ID manually for it to work now, which doesn't make sense to me because his ID is already in the list it's supposed to scan for. But I manually added both Aeonaxx's friendly and engaged ID's, and downloaded NPC Alert and Silver Dragon and had them scanning for his friendly ID, just to be sure I'd get alerted this time. All 3 worked for Aeonaxx, but I would definitely manually add ID's and run a targeting macro if you intend to camp anything with NPC Scan from now on!
Killed Aeonaxx today on Barthilas, Oceanic server, around 8:55am server time May 21st 2015 at SW2 spawn location.
I had been camping for around 7 days or so, spending most of my time in Deepholm (probably about 10 or so hours per day) while I occasionally hearthed to my Garrison for missions and went to raid as well. I had a special targeting macro that I spammed non-stop. I was in the middle of doing a loop around the tower when he spawned right in front of me, taking up half the screen, so I was able to jump on him almost immediately. He was much bigger than I expected. I'm not sure whether NPCscan/Silverdragon worked normally (like in the past) or not. My mouse cursor was in the middle of my screen exactly when he spawned, so the mouse-over triggered those addons to go crazy.
Some things I wanted to share from my experience:
I never saw Blood Seeker the entire time. Like others have said, NPCScan doesn't work the same anymore so I never knew when it spawned (if ever) and that it apparently only spawns for about 5 seconds before despawning. This made for a very long and depressing time being in Deepholm because you never know whether Blood Seeker has spawned or not, which would normally tell you "go take a 6 hours break" time. Highly recommended you have something to do on the side; TV show, etc, to keep your brain stimulated or you'll literally go crazy.
I chose to park myself in between SW1 and SW2 spawn spots, with the hope that it would appear in my view range if it spawned at NW1 also. This covered half the spots.
I camped mainly during the night time in the dead hours (yay timezone difference) between 9pm-9am server time. Even during these times there were usually some people floating in and out of the zone. Most of them were level 82-84 players who were leveling their characters.
There were no other hardcore campers like myself, which was a relief. However, there were plenty of softcore campers whose names I learned very quickly. These people would drop in, do a few laps and camp for 10 mins, leave, then come back again an hour or 2 later to repeat the same thing. Mentally this stressed me out big time because I was stressed that they'd get super lucky and Aeonaxx would spawn the exact time they popped in. This caused me to constantly keep /Who open and I always refreshed it every time I spammed my macro to see who was about. If someone had just popped into the zone, I'd quickly do a loop of the spots I wasn't covering just in case he had spawned there. This gave me a bit of reassurance at least.
Because of my super intense paranoia that a softcore camper would get it, I did a loop around the tower every 5 or so minutes just in case he spawned at one of the other spots not in my viewing/macro range.
I think this is important to state: After I looted him, his corpse despawned literally about 30 seconds later.
A lot of comments from years ago have stated that his corpse lasts for a long time, sometimes up to 20-30mins; however, this was not the case for me. Be aware that you might not know he's been killed by someone recently due to the corpse despawning super quickly.
As I'm on an Oceanic server I couldn't really use the realm-hopping tactic that many US servers use. I did use the Cross Realm Assist addon, which sometimes allowed me to jump over to other Oceanic servers for a look. However, half the time it didn't work at all and I wasn't ported, but also due to the severe lack of Oceanic groups that form in the pre-made group finder, this was difficult to do and I pretty much had to go it alone.
Really, really important to take care of yourself! If you're planning on camping it hardcore, take care of your health and your relationships. Eat and drink properly, sleep properly, take a shower, don't push yourself too hard otherwise you'll burn out very quickly and it will honestly make the experience much more difficult. After about the 3th day of camping I hadn't focused on myself or my boyfriend, and that caused some tension/stress at home. If you need to take a break, take it. Go outside, get away from the computer, and do something different for a few hours. You'll be better refreshed and motivated to continue if you don't feel like a horrible mess.
Good luck to all the campers! Once you get the mount you'll be so happy. Not because you have the mount but because you finally have regained control and freedom over your life (and also that you never have to see Deepholm ever again!)

Deepholm really shouldn't be CRZ. This is just annoying, if it wasn't for that I would be literally alone in Deepholm now. What even is the point of CRZ when realm hopping exists?
****EDIT: KILLED IT! Holy %^&*, after 3 hours I still can't believe it. Glad that this chapter of my life has come to an end.
Guys, realmhopping is really the way to go if you want the mount.
Just copypasting the same thing I wrote on Aeonaxx page:
**READ**: I used SerroDan's macro, while it targeted Aeonaxx (and Blood Seeker), it didn't play the sound for me! So keep in mind the possibility it might not play for you either, at least not by simply copypasting the macro.
Realm: Hyjal (realmhop)
Date: 11.10.2015 Sunday
Time: 12:45 at night (realm time)
Location: Some North spawn point
Addons: NPC scan (didn't go off until I already mounted her) and NPC overlay
Total camp time: 30+ hours
My strategy was to sit at SW1 point and realmhop all the time, sometimes (like, every 5-20min) checking the rest of the spawnpoints in home realm (The Shat'ar EU). I realmhopped to Hyjal and that only time I decided to do a circle in different realm instead of just leaving the second I didn't target Aeonaxx at SW1, I saw it and killed it. I was on boosted fresh lvl 90 mage (ilvl 483) with lvl 1 moveset. I just spammed Frost Bolt, the fight was very easy, lasted a few seconds, didn't encounter the adds
I saw Blood Seeker twice in one camp session (Dates: 5.10.2015-6.10.2015, Times: 10pm and 2am realm time, Realm: The Shat'ar EU Locations: SW1 and NW2). These sights happened in between -4 hours- so the spawn timer can actually vary from at least 4h to 24h (or whatever the suspected max spawn hour is).
I didn't camp that hardcore, a few hours everyday, mostly between 8pm-8am (realm time). I did raid, do some dailies, slept as much I liked and when I wanted to etc. I was prepared to miss it at least a few times and for it to take me lots of time, if ever to get the mount. It really comes down to extreme luck and nothing else. You shouldn't, and really cant fight against that (imo) so I didn't want to put pressure on myself and stress about it, just did my best but didn't go from my comfort zone (though I put myself pretty close to the limits of it).
And, I'm a believer, so I also prayed Lord to give it to me today, and it happened. :)
Argent Dawn server
After a while camping northwest of the central tower, Aeonaxx finally appeared! I did my share of camping with nothing to show for it. Then on Dec. 2nd at 11am on Argent Dawn server, BAM! I was just floating there with NPCSCAN on and not paying attention, but at my PC. I was riding my Vitrious Stone Drake and happened to look up at the screen and I saw extra mass behind me. Aeonaxx looks like the Vitrious Stone Drake when flying so it blended in behind me. I looked behind me and couldn't believe it. My first thought was get there and mount it quick! My scan was delayed and I saw Aeonaxx before it went off. I turned to go towards her and then it went off. I thought I was seeing another player at first then I saw the mount arrow and my screen went red. I jumped on and my heart was pounding. I couldn't believe it after camping on and off for weeks. My mage is lvl 92 and I took her down in 10 seconds and didn't even experience any whelps. I just floated down in a parachute after which seemed to take an eternity. I looted and got the reigns of the Phosphorescent Drake and my hands were shaking. I camped at the level of the Stonecore entrance northwest of the main spire. When you look at your mini map you are in the middle of the aqua colored gems below you. You can see 3-4 spawn points from that location. Every story I've heard and thing I've read says that is the best location and height of Aeonaxx spawning.

Thanks for the post, Underworld but I'm literally in awe that I decided to check this thread out for the first time and MIRACULOUSLY someone on my server killed him on one of the days I was trying for him. I feel soiled.
Again though, thanks. I'll take your advice to heart in my pursuits now as well and hopefully with have an Aeonaxx to call my own soon. Haven't looked into the spawn locations yet but I'll dig through the mount comments and find them in there somewhere.
