When commenting on yesterday’s post about Aotona, one of my readers asked me to share the path I used to patrol for Loque’nahak. Well, because it’s been awhile since I posted on the subject, I decided to throw together an updated map for Fushae and the other folks at home. The new map contains my route, as well as some additional spots you may want to check for other rares in the Basin.
I took my original map of Loque’s spawn points and added King Krush and Aotona to the mix. I can’t confirm or deny, but some people seem to think that the spawn times between the rares are connected in some way. Knowing when the other rares are up or have despawned may help to narrow down possible respawn times.
It is possible, because it just so happened that the time I did manage to find Loque’nahak I was actually waiting for Krush. He had been killed roughly 12 hours earlier, so I decided to return 12 hours later hoping he’d respawn. Instead Loque popped up right in front of me. I thought, ooohhh… bonus! Here’s what happened next.
The Loque’nahak icons on the map represent locations I feel are legit. There may be more, but I can’t put my stamp of approval on those.
The same goes for the King Krush locations. I’ve personally only seen him in 2 places in the basin, but I’ve viewed screenshots that definitely show him by The Maker’s Perch and Nesingwary Camp.
Aotona I’ve only seen twice, and both encounters were in the spot I’ve noted on the map. Wowhead shows additional spawn points, but I dunno. I wasn’t camping Aotona.
So there ya have it. If you’re looking for any of the rare beasties in Sholazar I hope this helps. Also, be sure to mash yer macro when patrolling the area.

Rare Finder is a nice addon to have if you’re serious about finding one of these pets or completing the Frostbitten achievement. I’d link to it, but I’m not finding it on Curse or WoWInterface at the moment. I recommend using Wowmatrix for all of your addons anyway, and it’s definitely in there.
Aotona was a good distance away, and only was targeted by my macro for a second, but Rare Finder sounded an alarm and put a message into my chat screen showing what I’d targeted. I quickly circled around until I retargeted her and then went in for the kill. It was me or the parrot. Hunter vs. Macaw in a fight to the death. Polly got no more crackers that evening. Alright… enough tom-foolery. Go get your pets people!
