Shadowbarb Drone Questline Start - Raise Your Own Aqir Mount
previous datamining post
, we have uncovered the new 8.3 mount, the
, and how it would be a raised mount similar to
. In the latest PTR build, we found out how to start the questline to raise your own Aqir mount!
You start the Shadowbarb Drone questline by finding a cluster of Voidtouched Eggs in Uldum. They are located at around
by the Ankhaten Harbor area, and can only be seen while Uldum is under an Aqir invasion. These eggs are a bit out of the way, but once you're in the area, they are very hard to miss, as the quest exclamation for
will show on your minimap when you're close by.
As you gather the egg, you then return to H'Partho Adoros in Ramkahen, who will look after the egg for you. On the first day, he will send you to the Temple of Uldum in
Match the Hatch
where you will investigate more Voidtouched Eggs and learn a bit more about them. H'Partho believes that Aqir drones are not all born evil, and with enough work, you might be able to tame the hatching egg you found by yourself!
Don't fret, I'm sure no ill will become of hatching this creature. After all, the aqir can't be born evil, can they?
Of course, we have no idea how to take care of such an egg. I will need you to do some investigating.
Head back to the aqir hives and see if you can find any other, similar eggs. If we can observe how they're being treated, we might be able to apply those learnings here.
This will be the end of the questline for now, as after turning in Match the Hatch, H'Partho will state that there is no more that can be done today. This means that the Shadowbarb Drone will be a timegated mount, akin to the
Kua'fon mount grind
It is currently unknown how many days you will need to fully grow your Shadowbarb Drone, but from
previously datamined content
, we know it will take more than just hatching the egg to obtain your mount, as you will not only need to choose a name for your mount, but also feed it in its larva state and even craft your Shadowbarb Drone's own saddle!
It is also worth noting that there is a pet with a similar model and acquisiton source, the
. It is currently unknown if the Hatchling is part of this questline.
I was wondering what you and that draenei were doing keeping that bug here in Ramkahen.
If you've somehow managed to tame that thing, then I'm sure it could carry you. We'll want some special supplies to craft the saddle, though, so as not to add undue weight.
Can you craft a saddle for an aqir?
Congratulations, you've hatched a healthy aqir larva. What should we call him?
What a marvelous specimen! What should we name him?
Excellent choice. A more fitting name, I've never heard.
Here you go, little guy. Eat up!
Hmm... he doesn't seem to like it much.
Dinner is served!
Oh dear, that was not good!
Here comes din din!
He likes it! Just look at that appetite!
You are able to track your Shadowbarb Drone's progress, at least as an egg, by moving your mouse over the egg.
