The Official Aeonaxx Thread
Return to board index
This dropped for me this morning on Outland-EU at 10:29 server time. I was using a macro that a previous member had posted here, but it was slightly broken (the alarm would not sound) so below is my fixed and updated version.
After camping all-night, I was at 46.4, 43.4 when he spawned right above me!
Persistence is key. Happy camping!
/run if UnitName("Target") == "Aeonaxx" then PlaySoundFile(], "Master"); print(date(), UnitName("Target"), "Found"); SetRaidTarget("target",8); end
Based on the map shown on the main info page, it looks like he either patrols around the temple at a consistent distance, or he does a sort of ellipse stretching to the east, but I have found that most patrolling npcs will go clockwise, and as long as you know the general patrol area, you can make one circuit both ways to make sure they're not going the same direction as you the whole time.

Just wanted to note that with the whole group loot function you might be tempted to ride Aeonaxx while waiting for your friends to log on-- a seemingly safe strategy, considering you're in control when you're mounted on him and there is no apparent timer, but it does have its issues.
Yesterday (12/08/2016) on the Lightbringer US Deepholm crossrealm, Aeonax spawned at 9am est in the NE spawn. I was doing a patrol after having camped for 30 hours without breaks, and this was prior to two weeks of 10+ hour camp days. I mounted him successfully and called my group members (offline but in my party) to log on. Two of them logged on, but our last member didn't respond. Not wanting to have them miss out after all the camping we'd done, I waited. I panicked and I waited.
We decided to invite one of the solo campers to get in on the mount, because why not. The moment we invited them, while Aeonaxx was patrolling with me over the Crimson Expanse, Aeonaxx suddenly stopped flying and despawned, dropping me to the ground. I'm not sure if he had a hidden timer or inviting a person broke it somehow, but either way, he vanished and I lost my chance. And to note, the person we invited shared the same Deepholm crossrealm, so it wasn't a phasing issue.
I submitted a ticket to Blizzard but, of course, because my logs won't have a kill in them, they likely won't take action. In my panic I was too paranoid to take screenshots, because I was worried I'd DC and lose him. I guess waiting 'till after he was dead to try to take screenshots was a bad idea, because the only proof I have that he spawned is in my logs now.
In summary, if you're doing the group method:
Don't wait more than 10 mins to kill him once mounted
Don't invite anybody new to your party
And of course, if you do it properly, remember to
KILL HIM IN RANGE OF YOUR WHOLE PARTY
. My poor team lost out on the mount previously because a horny member murdered Aeonaxx before the whole party was in range, meaning the mount only dropped for two people. My suggestion is to pick a spot you know he flies over once he's engaged and wait to oneshot him once your party is grouped up.
Goodluck and RNG bless.
So sorry to hear about your encounter Ashyre. You are a very selfless and noble player. Sometimes you just have to pull the trigger and get your mount!
It spawned on Saturday at 6:00pm est on my server, NW1. A fellow camper received it!
Bloodseeker! 6:25PM est. I couldn't believe my eyes! Never seen one before. My macro picked it up and it was gone one second after.
Spawned in US Earthen Ring, 10:38:02 PM Realm Time on 11/01/16. I was camping at 45.37, 43.52, and he spawned very close to me.
Spawned and caught last night! 02-16-17 - US Sentinels, appx. 6:50pm server time. Coords, 44,43 area or NW1. Good luck everyone.
**Best tip that I got was; try to camp a lower populated server. My mains are on Turalyon, so I tried switching over to my old Shammy on Sentinels, first night - BAM. **Edit: Also noted that he spawns, then flies in circles at spawn point. not around the temple, just in circles.
on Thursday, March 2, 2017.
. I assume it is spawn point
about same as the platform to the Stonecore Entrance
- see link to photos at the bottom
Okay so I have spent about 35+ hours total game time camping from 5-hour straight camps, to just passing by every time i have time or i want to relax from grinding. Aeonaxx slipped my hands when a guy I partied with didn't wait for me to get to him before the kill - so I did not get the loot the first time I saw it but it validated how it can be very REAL. :)
The timid yet awesome-looking mount finally showed up when I tried logging in, hopefully to hear that Silverdragon alert I have been waiting for. It was a few minutes while waiting for an Uber to go to work! When I saw him spawn right when I turned around from my camping spot, I thought it was another camper cos I saw him even before the addon alert sound started going off. I thought it was super exciting, I was lucky to have it spawn literally a few flaps of my mount away from my camping spot - I guess I am not that unlucky after all. My sacrifice has finally paid-off.
It is my first time camping for a mount and it has taught me a lot about patience and perseverance!
- Other rares in this area never spawned for me
- I never saw Blood Seeker, NPCScan/Silverdragon never alerted of its presence
(basically same as other comments):
- Keep yourself sane by playing music, talking to people in the house or in discord, reading/studying, or queueing Arena skirmishes if you really get bored.
- Never give up. You will get it.
- Don't hate on players who get it first (like what i did the first time i didnt get it, terrible attitude from my end)
- Don't camp a spawn point when another guy is already camping it

cos i can't post links yet, just created this account now to help the community
Best of luck to everyone reading this comment. :)
Going to start editing this post as a daily check multiple times on many servers. (The Americas) My routine is logging in and flying around the temple (clockwise) starting near The Blood Trail. Essentially using the exit to the Temple of Earth as the marker for the starting point. Flight around the temple takes about 1 minute with 310% flying speed.
I have quickly lost hope after calculating roughly how long it has taken me to achieve obtaining my mount(has not happened yet). At 6-7 hours a day, for 5/7 days of the week(i spend my nights camping for aeonaxx since ive started my job, then go to sleep after 6-7 hours, wake up, work xD rinse repeat. its a good life ya know xD) and for a lil over 2 years now, ive invested, which i know people are gunna find insane and automatically disbelieve and downvote, more than 2000+ hours(200 has been spent on a dead server i recently transfered a toon too. i got timelost the first day! after 7 years of farming xD) and havent gotten my mount. i have seen him dead many times(lost track), stolen by a realm hopper once(i lost all hope when it happened, and have been telling myself since, farming for nothing xD) and have been a moment too late waaaay too often(lost track as well). After all this, ive come to the conclusion that my luck sucks(seeing how it too my 893 attempts to get ashes, 5578 attempts for my timereaver and 302 attempts at my pureblood phoenix for example xD), grats to everyone that has the mount and has spent the very short amount of time, or very long hours spent camping like me, and if anyone wants to be a sport, and camp with me, ill provide a btag(DJZaynum#1493)!
Edit: This is next morning. Found a buddy while camping. Helped camp the southern, while i camped the northern spawns. i take a 2 hour nap, and he spawns. Buddy feels really bad, but thats just cause he has heard my few horrow stories of losing the tag, being to late, losing to a realm hopper. Im happy for him, but this is perfect expample of my luck, yet again. I had been camping for 19 hours prior to the nap.
Edit: Gallywix US 12:09 AM(1:09 server time) I logged in for &*!@s and giggles. BAM! RIGHT ON TOP OF ME. NW2 Spawn. Its is over.....it is finally over.....
Has anyone ever seen Aeonaxx in the Khaz Modan server? I don't really want to move to a higher population server to catch him, but I haven't read any post saying the server was KM.
He was seen today! 15:50 server time. I don't know where because I didn't see him personally, haha.
Hunting this beasty on Bleeding Hollow, 19 hours straight so far, nothing seen lol. Take a little time off, and start coming back in 2 hour blocks.
Alright so I got him, didn't take me to super long. It didn't happen on Bleeding Hollow though, on a less populated realm on one of my alts. I just felt like I stood a better chance on that realm and I was right.
I actually transferred one of my alts to a lower pop server. Logged in and headed down to Uldum to hunt camels, found a dud so I knew I was done for a bit. Ported to Org, took the portal to Deepholm, sat right out front of the temple for a bit. Then flew around once, came back camped for another maybe 20-30 minutes. Flew around again in the other direction, as I came back around to the front smashing my macro there he was, bam right in front of me.
I've been blindly camping him for a while now and I finally got him tonight! He spawned for me on Tichondrius-US at 4:12AM PST (server time). GL hunting everyone!
I've been camping for him for the last 2 weeks, 4-5 hours every day. I created lot's of trial characters on different servers and today at 4.16PM I got it from Europe Scarshield Legion RPPVP server. I was using my macro all the time while flying and when it picked up NPCScan and SilverDragon started screaming at the same time. Beforehand I did a full circle around but couldn't see it, and when I was going back, it just spawned.
Good luck to everyone hunting, it's really an amazing mount and I wish the best of luck to everyone.
How high up does Aeonaxx spawn? If I'm flying at the wrong height will NPC Scanner be unable to detect him?
: 22 OCT 2018
: 07:12 AM (SERVER) / 08:12 AM (EDT)
: 46.12, 43.93
I had logged on to my character just to check for a spawn and Aeonaxx was right in front of her.
I grabbed a screenshot as I reached him and then after I learned the mount. Hopefully the before shot can give some idea of the location and height.
Wow! I logged in this afternoon for my usual camping time while I work in the other window. I was sitting at SW2, and I spammed my targeting macro upon login. Boy was I startled when he was there! NPCscan went off upon target, as did SilverDragon. SilverDragon yells for mount-dropping rares as Illidan saying I'm not prepared like five times. It certainly added to the drama. XD
This was at 2:28pm, EST, on Cenarion Circle- US, Alliance. He was flying counter-clockwise in a small circle at NW1. I hurried over and instantly looted the mount as I clicked on him, and then killed him in one shot, as my camping alt is 110. I parachuted down to 41.60, 49.58, as he barely had time to fly anywhere once I mounted him.
I'm in complete shock! Oh man. -fans self-
Oh, and on another note, he looked like he'd been patting in that circle for a while. I'm not sure when servers came back up after maintenance today, but my targeting macro caught him at 2:27pm. Best believe I sped over there like my life depended on it. XD
Back in the day, when Cata was live, I was questing on my shadow priest in Deepholm and saw Aeo spawn. I mounted him and ended up getting killed, and it punted my body halfway across the dang zone. In my absence, a horde hunter grabbed him and downed him. So this feels like.. man.. I'm still in shock. XD
So hope this helps any fellow campers! Cen Circ is a quiet zone these days, and seems to be really good for rare hunting, that's why I chose to camp here rather than on other servers I play. Happy hunting lovelies!
