I've heard several people on the secret finding Discord say that TLPD and Vyra are not working with the _NPCscan addon at the moment. Do you know if there is there any truth to this or how to work around it?


Hi Jasanni,

Good question. I'll add something about this to the original post but The short answer is, No. Do not rely on rare spotting add-ons like NPCscan or Silver Dragon to help you find the TLPD.

There is no work around. The vignette model for Rares in WoD changed how WoW interacted with the addons and to keep up with the times the addons changed the way they detected for rares. As such, support for older rares (not just TLPD, but rares in general) was no longer viable.

Those addons are valuable for new content and have minor utility for older content which I'll go back into the OP and provide some color for but you really should not rely on those addons to detect TLPD. You'll need your eyeballs to do the heavy lifting.

It's hard to lose that itch.

You just gotta settle that issue in your mind first. You can do it. You have to tackle this with the mindset that you already own him (just not yet). Go get your heavy winter gear and head up there. He's waiting for you!

... my add-on goes off saying that the TLPD is up ...


I just responded to a comment about this. Those addons don't work on TLPD anymore (like they used to). So be prepared to camp in front of the monitor.

I think it's high time you return the favor! Post a pic here when YOU win! :twisted: ;)

I've done my fair share of camping and hunting various things so I certainly know that feel, but wow reading just how involved this camp is makes me almost feel bad for how extremely lucky I was to snag it in 3.1 O.O


Key word in that sentence was "almost." Am I right? ;)

It's hard to feel bad when you're strolling around on your yellowy-gold-ish colored dragon mount ... thing! :lol:

we grouped up so i could get to him ... and he was able to loot it aswell, and funny enough we both ended up getting the mount like its shared loot now?


Yep Party Loot rules (not Raid) apply now. There's some technicalities like being in the same natural CRZ group but it's shared loot and all in party can get the mount.

If you decide to party up, here's some short thoughts to consider.

  • I wrote the original post so you can do it solo. You don't need to party up. Of course more eyes may help ... but if you do it wrong some folks may not get their loot. I'll go back and cover the gotchas in the OP.
  • If there are two people in the group, cover the Special spot and Brunnhildar Village. That way you'll cover 100% of the spawns.
  • If there are three people, cover Special Spot, Brunn and Ulduar spawns. That way you'll have 100% INSTANT coverage.
  • If four ... go to the four spawns and cover.
  • If five folks ... rotate people out so folks can take a mental break, bio break ... etc.

Good Luck!

I've added new content to the OP addressing the use of Rare Spawn Addons NPCScan and Silver Dragon for helping alert you to the advent of a TLPD spawn using an audible alert while AFK. In short, don't rely on them.

You can find the new text in the details of Step 2. Getting Geared Up.

Look for the :idea: icon or search for the text "special service announcement." It's where I will put new edits going forward for ease of use. That way you don't have to reread the whole post to find updates.

I'd love to see pictures of your toon on your new TLPD mounts when you get them.

Happy Hunting!
