Kosumoth the Hungering – Secret NPC

Kosumoth the Hungering is a Secret NPC that you can unlock by solving the mystery of the "whispers" that plague the old warlock Drak'thul. Kosumoth the Hungering is one of the major secrets in Legion, along with Lucid Nightmare, Riddler's Mind-Worm, Sun Darter Hatchling and Uuna.

For this secret you will have to find hidden orbs scattered across the Broken Isles. At the end of the secret you will receive a world quest which will either reward http://www.wowhead.com/item=138201/fathom-dweller or http://www.wowhead.com/item=140261/hungering-claw.


Go to the Broken Shore at 37 71 and speak with http://www.wowhead.com/npc=102695/drakthul. After a conversation about demons, he will tell you to go away.

At 58, 54 there is a cave. At the end of the cave there is a mound of dirt on the ground, click it to get the http://www.wowhead.com/item=139783/weathered-relic.

Return to http://www.wowhead.com/npc=102695/drakthul and ask him about the relic. Continue to speak with him a few times until he has no more dialogue options.

Hungering Orbs

Now you will be able to click secret orbs hidden around the Broken Isles, keep in mind you must do this in order!

Lots of these orbs are hidden in caves beneath shrubbery or trees, or even underwater!

Here is a script you can use to check your progress:
/run local a={43730,43731,43732,43733,43734,43735,43736,43737,43760,43761}for i,q in ipairs(a)do print(format("Orb %s: %s",i, IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(q) and "\124cFF00FF00Done\124r" or "\124cFFFF0000Not Done\124r")) end
