Deathwing Watch - Stood in the fire

Well today I have been sitting in the same spot in Sundown Marsh in Wetlands for nearly 16 hours and NOTHING! And that is not counting the 5 or 6 hours a day I had been doing in the last few days. Im really getting discouraged :( Oh well... Guess I'll just have to hope he comes tommarow.


I've been camping Hunter Hill for an average of 10 hours a day since last Tuesday. Sit afk and go do something else, moving your mouse every 5-10 min or so.

Finally got burned.

So, just find a spot he's known to path and just be patient.

Does he hit Corin's Crossing in the Eastern Plaguelands? I couldn't find any confirmation in the old thread, so I'm sorry if I'm asking a FAQ.

You can add the Eastern Plaguelands and the Blasted Lands to that list above for Alexstrasza.

Wetlands/Arathi/Eastern Plaguelands seem to be the hot spots. (Pun intended).

Anyone into fishing should stand in the Eastern Plaguelands on the north side of the Infectis Scar. That way you can fish for a .1% drop rate bloated redgill, a requirement of The Limnologist achievement. A nice way to use your time constructively while you wait for Deathwing.

(He will blast you on the north side, but dunno about the south).

Thanks for the tip.
Was doing some fishing in the Wetlands while I waited, at "the spot" southeast of the windmill. Trying for one of the rare catches for the Achievement. No luck yet, but I did catch a Bloated Catfish as well as a Darkwood Fishing Pole.

Been in the Wetlands for days now, can't seem to be on when he hits. =( Thinking about trying somewhere else...the scenery here is getting really old.

Xian and whoever else is posting lists, we all appreciate your list of known spots. But try and edit the zone locations with some details and possible coordinates as people continue to give information. As for everyone here posting locations we need what area of the zone you were when you got attacked. As many people know, Deathwing does NOT attack the entire zone when he appears. He has a designated flight path (possibly more than 1 but none the less designated) for a zone and he follows that path (or paths) then despawns.

I saw him at Arathi Highlands south of Hammerfall and he flew west and looks like he despawned west of Refuge Point. I was on my way to Hammerfall to head to the known camp spot which is 40, 66 (Right next to Fozruk) to afk while I was making dinner and I saw him spawn. Sadly I was on flight and it was already close to Hammerfall when he spawed so I did not get it.

Deathwing also attacks Tanaris and if you are in Gadgetzan you will get hit. I missed him there by mins because I flew to Gadgetzan to get Noggenfoggers and I saw dead people not rezzing and general chat was "OMG DEATHWING". I've read that he flies down as far as the Dunemaul compound.

Was killed by deathwing in EPL, on north side of Infectis Scar.

Was alt-tabbed out, had the <Away> tag, and recieved no achievement credit.

Put in a ticket, but GMs typically do not reward achievements through a ticket, so who knows. What a righteous waste of hours.

I don't mean to Mr. Party Poopy Pants but posting times and locations is very irrelevant. It's akin to saying "Hey I got this rare drop on my 9th kill."

It's only useful in saying "This is when and where he struck me on my server." It isn't going to help anyone plan or gain an advantage to accomplishing the achievement.

Deathwing hits zone randomly and without rhyme or reason.

This may be why the old post was removed.

To be frank, this whole thread is the reason I GOT my achievement. Without it, I would never have been able to narrow down which zones he hits and which he didn't on my own. Times may be irrelevant, but the locations are quite useful. Thanks for your input, but I respectfully disagree.

I disagree. There are patterns. He has favorite zones, and even tends to gravitate towards the 5 and 15's of the hour. He likes to fly E-W in a zone, with the exception of Barrens/Tanaris and he has favorite areas in each zone that he likes to hit. This thread is incredibly helpful. And as I stated previously, had I not queued out for a dungeon to help the boyfriend, I would have had the achievement. Bad timing. I'd been waiting in Wetlands for 4 hrs, and missed it by thirty seconds. I wouldn't have known where to wait, had it not been for the thread.

"Deathwing lit up X zone on Y server at Z time" is not terribly useful, because it in no way helps anyone predict when and where he will strike on their own server.

"I got killed by Deathwing at X location in Y zone" is useful, because it allows people to piece together through which zones he passes, and what his path through those zones is.

Personally, I was killed at Gadgetzan in Tanaris. From what I can tell, he cuts a straight path from Gadgetzan down to Uldum, incinerating everything in between. Gadgetzan seems to be a pretty good afk spot for the zone, since the guards that hit for like 10k will (somewhat) shield you from being ganked while afk.

Also, I've started a spreadsheet of times/locations/etc, in case we lose the thread again. Anywho, off to work. Good luck guys.

Edit: I believe it's viewable but not editable.
Am I allowed to link the spreadsheet?

I just saw him in Arathi Highlands at around 1:28 EST on Eonar server. Missed him by a few seconds when he flew near Refuge Point and Stromgarde.

I also saw him in Hinterlands a couple days ago, but I forgot where exactly I was--I was somewhere in the center of the map, on the road. Also, a guildmate got the achievement in Stonetalon Mountains. All on Eonar
