I've been camping/patrolling Loque'nahak for two days in the basin with no luck (well actually i did find Aotona but i didn't really want it). Can anyone post the time/place where they found it and provide any additional information?

Thanks

Go to Curse.com there is a nice add-on called NPC Scan. In the background, it scans for rare NPCs and alerts you when they find one. Click the alert and the rare NPC is targeted. I've found 2 so far in as many days.

It also highlights where these rare NPCs are found on your mini map.

However, Loque'nahak is the one rare NPC that causes issues with NPC scan. In any case, this add-on should be very helpful.

The problem lays within other hunters: if you have NPCScan and you go by a hunter with Loque as a pet, not only will NPCS signal you for it, but it will also mark it as 'targeted and defeated'.

A player would have to reset their Cache in their WoW folders every time this happens. Note: It's not just Loque, but any rare that a hunter can tame.

Yea I already have NPC scan and was aware of the hunter pet situation. On day three now and I'm just looking for any lead I can get. Some websites say that the rares spawn near the same time every day +/- 30 minutes, which is why I was wondering if anyone had a time.

@Khad: What are these issues with npc scan...does Loque sometime not activate it?

Most rares have a timer for their spawns, but that timer does not start until the last time it was killed/tamed. In the case of an NPC with multiple spawn locations, it can spawn at any of those locations when the timer runs out.

For example, Arcturis, who only has one spawn location (Just north of Amberpine Lodge in Grizzly Hills has a 22 hour spawn. It spawned within 15 minutes of that 22 hour mark when I camped for it on my hunter.

With a mob like Loque, who has seven possible spawn locations, you're far less likely to catch it while it's alive or untamed. Your best bet is to try at off-peak hours. I tamed it at 4:00 am server or so when I got it. It also seems that it's most commonly found near the monkey spawn locations, or above Pitch by the crystal..

The only "issue" with Loque and NPCScan is the hunter tamed-pet issue. A lot of hunters just seem to have it, so you're fairly likely to see it and need to clear your cache. Flying to Sholazar before you log out and clear your cache fixes this most of the time, unless someone's being rude and pulling out Sholazar rare pets near you as you fly around. (Happened to me once when I was looking for Loque, alert popped up, NPC was nowhere to be found, I just assumed it was a terrain hacking miner.)

I found my Loque'nahak to the northwest, next to the waterfall where you would find Shango, just on the opposite side. I don't remember the time or date tamed, though.

About NPCScan, the cache folder is very annoying to delete constantly, but it can be helpful if you want to keep track of pets you've already obtained by summoning them, causing them to be chached. I have used NPCScan to get Loque'nahak, Skoll, Gondria (with help from a random player kind enough to /whisper me about its appearance), Ghostcrawler, Arcturis, and Karoma.

You might have found one by now, seeing how I am posting this around a year after you did, but I hope this helps if you haven't found it.

I find it quite hilarious that I found and caught the Time-Lost Proto Drake and I still have not even seen Loque on my server.
