How to get Baa'l

The Conspicuous Note

Cross the Bridge in Nazmir to the top of the temple and then click on the Conspicuous Note. The note is on the side of the temple.

/way Nazmir 46 54 Bridge
/way Nazmir 51 59 Conspicuous Note

First Pebble

Interact with pebble on the table in Broken Shore next to Drak'Thul. If you you can't click it, interact with Drak'thul so he turns away from the table, or use a Draenic Invisibility Potion or Skaggldrynk.

/way 37 71 (use this waypoint while in the Broken Shore)

Second Pebble

This pebble is in a cave in Boralus. Walk through the net and you should fall down into the cave. The pebble is lying on the floor.

/way Boralus 49 40 In a cave behind the net

Third Pebble

This pebble is located in a cave in Atal'dazar. It can be reached after a bit of climbing and using a Goblin Glider Kit. Below is a video of how to get to the cave. The pebble is next to a root.

/way 31 35 (use this waypoint while in Zuldazar)

Fourth Pebble

This pebble is located in a cave in Drustvar. The cave is behind a waterfall. In the cave there is an effigy, you will find the pebble in its eye.

/way Drustvar 34.60 55.05 In the effigy's head

Fifth Pebble

This pebble is located in Voldun. The cave is near the tree and takes a small amount of climbing to get to. Get as high as you can on the island and jump down. Beware the angry Krolusk! Make sure to use a Draenic Invisibility Potion or Skaggldrynk to avoid him killing you. The pebble is located at the entrance to the cave, in front of the Krolusk.

/way Vol'dun 63.21 21.33 Beware the angry Krolusk!

Sixth Pebble

This pebble is located in a cave in Stormsong Valley. The easiest way to get up to the cave is using the path from the first waypoint. The pebble is inside the cave, located in a wheelbarrow.

/way Stormsong Valley 69.3 9.4 Take Path
/way Stormsong Valley 68.33 10.5 Entrance to Cave

Seventh Pebble

This pebble is located above Nazmir, in the South Seas, in fatigue waters. Once you're in the South Seas you use the following macro to set up the waypoints:

/way 50 6 Starting location
/way 54 7 Pebble location

To get to both locations without any issue you can use the Feast of the Fishes. Make sure to place it on the shore of Vol'dun or Nazmir while you are in the water.

If you can't get the Feast of the Fishes, then you can use an Elixir of Water Walking or the Reins of the Azure Water Strider mount to walk on water. As you can see in the screenshot below, the starting location is in a safe area (the white texture on the minimap).

On your way to the pebble you will take fatigue damage so you will have to get there fast. If you're using the Feast of the Fishes then you can go straight to the back of the ship in the water. You will find the pebble below the skull on the left, as shown in the screenshots below.

If you're using the Elixir of Water Walking or the Reins of the Azure Water Strider mount, then once you get to 54 7 dismiss your mount and use one of the consumables below to increase your swim speed.

Eighth Pebble

This pebble is located in Boralus, in an underground basement in the maze area of the city. The pebble is behind the keg and the crates.

/way Boralus 37 80 In the basement, behind the keg and the crates

Ninth Pebble

This pebble is located in a cave off the side of an island in Drustvar. The pebble is at the caves entrance, not in the cave.

/way Drustvar 18.27 7.21 Take Path
/way Drustvar 17.15 6.4 Near the cave's entrance

Tenth Pebble

This pebble is in a cave in Tirigarde Sound. Make sure to use Draenic Invisibility Potion or Skaggldrynk to get past the Clatterbacks, which will one shot you if run over. The pebble is by a carcass of meat.

/way Tiragarde Sound 75.43 70.65 Use an invisibility potion!

Eleventh Pebble

This pebble is located in Tirigarde Sound, in a cave behind a waterfall. Jump up the rocks to get behind it. The pebble is under the scroll at the very back of the room. Tilt your camera to see it.

/way Tiragarde Sound 80.23 19.59 Under the scroll at the very back of the room

Twelfth Pebble

This pebble is located in an underwater cave in Boralus. The pebble is near a rock pillar.

/way Boralus 10.01 82.59 Underwater cave

Thirteenth Pebble

This pebble is located in a cave past a fatigue area, at the end of the ocean. You will need to use the Reins of the Azure Water Strider or the Elixir of Water Walking to walk on the water. The pebble is located just inside the cave entrance. Disregard the other pebbles in the cave, they're just a distraction.

Coordinates no longer work since the last TomTom addon update. Follow the direction like in the video below, and once you get to the first safe spot you can follow the white texture on the minimap.

Spoiler:

/way Zandalar 45.87 3.78 Path Start
/way Zandalar 47.7 -3 Fatigue Reset Zone
/way Zandalar 55.72 -10.21 Underwater Cave

The text on the pebble reads:

(Something is carved into the stone)

Heckler of the Murkiest Thugs, sheathe your
Bat and remove the Keg Cork, Wot?


Baa'l

Heckler Murkiest Thugs -> Kurgthuk the Merciless
Bat Keg Cork Wot -> Get Back to Work

The text has been decoded as an anagram by rearranging the letters, and it points to Kurgthuk the Merciless Frostfire Ridge, which yells "GET BACK TO WORK!". Close to this NPC there is a volcano, and it the middle of it you will find Baa'l.

Initially, Baa'l is nearly impossible to kill because he is empowered, however you can reduce his health points by summoning Uuna, provided that you have completed her storyline including the World Tour.

Uuna yells: Eat stars, bad guy!
Uuna yells: Get him, friend! Use your pet battle attack

Note: In case Baa'l's health points don't get reduced, then you should switch War Mode off. You can also try the Gastropod Shell toy to reset the pet or realm swap until you find a realm where it will work.

/way Frostfire Ridge 62 22 Baa'l

Baa'l will say ominous things when summoned, and if you rearrange the capital letters from the quote below, you can form an anagram for "SEEK KNOWLEDGE".

Souls fEast on enDless shrieKing, in darKNess they writhe and scream, yOu WiLl join thEm, toGether forEver morE!

Waist of Time

The secret continues with the hunt for the Waist of Time, which is a secret cosmetic belt and the final part of the first major secret in Battle for Azeroth.

Note: To continue this secret questline you must be on the same character that obtained Baa'l from the volcano in Frostfire Ridge.
