40.6-30.0 in Nagrand is where i found this guy. He's really a tree.
Found another spawn of this NPC, about 200 yards north-east of Dionor's Demise and just north of a large steam vent in the ground.
Edit: new spawn, just south of the quest npc Hadley Ricard in Nagrand.
If you decide to attempt to climb into your Wor'var Demolisher during a fight in Nagrand.. It will despawn the Ancient and not re-petrify. Already sent in a Bug report to Blizz.
These will appear as nodes on your mini-map as trees do, and do not despair if you don't find them in a zone or two. I traveled across Nagrand, Gorgrond, and all the spots in Spires to find one.
I also lost my sharpest saw to this tree. Cruel, cruel tree.
Does one spawn for you to find specifically, or is it just a random spawn which changes each time someone harvests one? I ask because I know I've seen one while questing in Nagrand before I had the mill at lvl 2, but now I can't for the life of me find it again.
EDIT: Hah, literally 15 seconds after posting I found one in the southern Arak spawn point. I don't recall seeing this one before.
Almost Raged as I had this Mob cut out from under me while I was attacking a Mob trying to get to it. No Problem though as when the Petrified Ancient becomes activ you can participate in the killing and get the book also :)
Found mine at the 65, 46 spawn in Spires of Arak, after running the length and width of Draenor twice. It's just a matter of being either patient or lucky.
I set out yesterday to get find this mob to start this quest and after a couple hours i finally got him to spawn. The best area i could find was between Ironfist Harbor and Oshugun in Nagrand. Running up and down in that area had almost nothing but middle level timber and the respawn rate was pretty great as well. Good luck!

cut down about 40 med trees and no ancient - did nagrand zone
I saw him repeatedly spawn in Nagrand at 65.8, 8.9
He looks like a statue of a scary tree, not like a lumber tree.
However, like a resource node (lumber) it seems you can't "click to target" him. (mouse cursor becomes lumber saw icon but the item/npc name is only shown for an instant in the mouseover info box when you mouse-over, then it's cleared... I had to wave the mouse across him real fast repeatedly to be sure I was seeing the name right)
wowhead looter addon wouldn't even give me an ID number for him until I clicked to cut him down and then it "summoned" the fightable npc version of him:
Peon says: Boss, me not what dey call smart, but dis tree not right. Maybe we no chop dis one?
Peon says: Doh! Me sorry for being stupid! STUPID ME! STUPID! STUPID! Choppy dis tree now, boss!
(for a instant the wow client thinks the item or npc name is "Lost Ancient" then it changes to NPC:85199 Petrified Ancient)
Petrified Ancient yells: Whoooo. Darrrrrres. Awakkkkken. ME!
then I killed him and he dropped
so I could get the quest.
Found mine at 42.21, 26.47 Nagrand. It showed up as Petrified Ancient instead of timber on my map.
Does not quite look like an ordinary tree. Maybe you should try choppy choppy it down?
Should be noted that if you delete the quest (I deleted mine to make room for other quests, thinking I could click the barkskin tome again later) you will have to run around looking for another petrified ancient and rekill it to get another tome. The tome disappears once you accept the quest. Took 30 minutes running around Nagrand looking for a second one, but I killed a few rares and got a ton of timber. Worked out.
I just killed this guy in the spire of light in Talador. He did not drop anything.
I have sent a ticket to Blizzard, I only hope to retrieve my Barkskin tome.

On mini map comes up as Petrified Ancient
Finally found one near the Shattrath flightpath.
Tagged it and a frigging guard killed it. So no drop for me.
I did a faction change while having the
quest half-way done and now the quest has disappeared and I've been on the lookout for another Petrified Ancient.
I recommend completing the quest before faction changing because finding another has turned into a nightmare.
Finally found it at 57,79 in Talador. I waited by some of the spawn spots for up to an hour at times so I wouldn't recommend doing this. I tried all the places in Gorgrond with no joy and was delighted to have finally found one.
Just killed one in Talador, he didn't drop a book. Not in raid group or anything. Is this likely not a guaranteed drop? Or do we have to be in an appropriately leveled zone? (Killed @ 100)
Found mine at 51.2, 31 in Talador, Poor peon
It is actually possible for people to steal this mob from you after you activate it. Happened to me twice today...if someone else manage to attack it before you do after you activate it, you'll get nothing, absolutely nothing.
Can I just say how much of a pain in the ass this guy is to look for? There, I said it.
Anyways, I found this guy at Spires of Arak near Pinchwhistle Gear Works. There is a small area where
walk around. He stood out to me because he was "glowing" in a sense, the same way timbers do. He was also on my mini map as "Petrified Ancient". Exact location where he spawned for me was
Also, I was
when I found him and finished this quest so I don't believe being level 100 is a requirement.
I would love to know how to stop NPCScan from detecting Petrified Ancient, very annoying when searching for other rares

START 75 work orders at your Lumber Mill

spawns with his gnome harem. Kill

. They do not really spawn after you cut the tree down like the other mobs involved in these quests. You will simply see a dot for the tree you want to chop down, but when you arrive, the tree will not gear up with the sawblade cursor, and there will be a little group of hostile mobs surrounding it. You may not be able to target them immediately, but when you are close enough and they are in the mood, they will assault you and you can then kill them.

I found the guy at 65 19.2 in Nagrand, the spot is lowly populated by other players, so you would have the most change finding him there and claim him yours, only negative part is... the mobs around the area are 98-100ish so as a lower level it could not be the best for your hp... You can easily spot him, he glows shiny as a rock deposit or as a tree, he looks like a giant statue of a angry tree.. hope i helped you guys! goodluck!
I found my Petrified Ancient at coords:
by following the map provided at the top of this page.
I would highly recommend using a coordinate addon or looking for maps that have dots on them marking Petrified Ancient's known spawn locations. Tomtom addon seems to be a popular one and people have kindly posted the coords so you can copy and paste them.
I almost had a heart attack when I stumbled across my Petrified Ancient because as soon as i saw it, another player was riding by it. Fortunately they just kept going and I was able to kill it. There is about a 10 second delay from the time you click it to the time you can attack it due to yo lumber jacks dialogue.
Immediately after realm restart, I found him in Nagrand 73,62 (above the valley)
want to confirm that location by jetal in Nagrand at 65.8, 8.9 was the correct one, found it immediately.
Look at the screenshots! They are all the same. If you do not have the quest, or have not completed the quest and are of an appropriate level (the mob spawned is level 95 to 100, depending on your level above 95, and the mobs you must kill will be atleast 96-98 moving on up to level 100 if you are higher level), when you run across this guy, he will show on your minimap and be reactive to your saw cursor. You try to chop him down like any tree, and the lumberjack responding will have many warnings about do you really want to try and cut down a tree with dead bodies around it? He goes ahead and starts chopping, gets killed and then you must kill the
If you have done the quest or have it in your quest log, the
will not be reactive or even generate a tooltip. You will still see them standing around the world, but they will not be reactive to you.
Nagrand 42, 26
Hey guys just found him on:
/way 41.4, 76.6 Gorgrond as the first post says.
My tip is: Create a macro with all the /way xx,yy that the first guy posted. Then go to a zone (let's say Gorgrond) and click the macro Icon with TomTom enabled. Now just follow the arrow. If you don't find him in a zone, just go to another and do the same.
Found mine at 49.0, 50.0
Found him close to the entrance of Gul'rok in Talador for those without coords
After all these years, Bliz still manages to come up with a %^&*ed up quest like this, which requires no skill but a ^&*! load of time wandering around. Some of the quest designers still obviously cannot fathom the concept of 'reasonable effort and reward.'
85.8,30.0 was where i found this guy, ive been all over the godam entire world looking for just 1.. the only 1 i found... aswell as sent a ticked to blizz about them not being in the places they were suposed to be.
Have decided that I will never get a level 3 Lumber mill since it requires a quest dropped by a non-existent NPC. Have WASTED 5 HOURS looking for this f***ing quest, BITE ME Blizzard!
For those who don't use coordinates, I found one slightly west of the Oshu'gun label on the map, along the shore (slightly north of the mountains by Ironfist Harbor).
Hope that can help someone :)
for those of you, who are using curse addon for quests (grail and wholly), the yellow exclamation (quest) mark will be on the map, meaning you don't need to search for it, just look at map and find quest mark for
The so called petrified ancient in Talador at 46.8, 85 is actually a Felbark,and it does not appear petrified; and I've searched around that whole area and no petrified ancients.
There is one just south of Shattrath City flight master
/way Talador 52, 48.8 Petrified Ancient
Highly recommend using an addon such as Wholly - I ran around for days at every waypoint in every zone and no luck. With Wholly I just flew to Nagrand, opened the map and scrolled around the available quests until I found a petrified ancient up on Elemental Plateau. It did not match any of the waypoints I had been to either.
Am sure you could also filter your search but never had to do it as I found so quickly.
I've now found this mob 3 times, each time with horde peons and alliance lumberjacks around him, and I could not target him or do anything.
Very frustrating when you spend hours searching, finally find him and can't interact with the mob. Hope the fix this soon.
make that 4 times now, this time the peons and lumberjacks around him are dead. Still cannot target/interact with him. This is so dumb.
In order to be able to interact with the
, you need
and have completed the quest
I found mine at 52 / 49 in talador.
If he isn't there, then I highly suggest realm hopping as it is a very fast and efficient way of finding the petrified ancient.
A helpful addon for this would be "cross realm assist"
Found one just under Broken Precipice in Nagrand. I died, and went to just northwest of Oshu'gan near the water
and found another one. Killed that one. Might be a good place to check regularly.
Found him at 46.93, 85.00 in Talador.
Just found him at:
/way 73, 62
Found first try at 1st coords I tried, attacked and despawned on me , thought it was too good to be true
I've been nearly everywhere looking for this guy, and finally found him outside of Gul'rok at 36.6, 69.8. happy hunting!

seems to be bugged for prepatch,when i click on tree it despawn after a while and my peon dies
I just did this today, I feel like I may have gotten lucky in finding it relatively quickly but it did help to make sure I turned on timber tracking and used the mini map instead of just looking around. Spotted it on the minimap and would have passed it had I not been using it. Kind of went in a path around the continents and worked my way inwards. Hope this helps!
Found using tomtom waypoints. /way #550 65.8 9.0 Petrified Ancient. good luk.
I found him today at 43.61, 92.57 (in Gorgrond).
Found him in Talador at 51,46, 31.20.
