After finding Baa’l in Frostfire Ridge, we were left out with an anagram for “SEEK KNOWLEDGE”:

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


“SEEK KNOWLEDGE” was a hint towards the Arakkoa from Draenor, where members from the WoW Secret Finding Discord had found the next step of this secret. The hunt continues, and you will now have to find different objects scattered around the world, which we have added in the Baa’l guide.

In other news, Senior Game Designer Jeremy Feasel has confirmed on twitter that the hunt will not lead to The Hivemind mount, but to something else, and many more secrets are yet to be uncovered.

He later then clarified that the idea was super cool, but didn’t make it into the shipping product. That being said, the mount is not off the table yet, and we could see https://www.wowhead.com/item=156798/the-hivemind available in the future.

Baa’l Secret Pet Discovered!

Baa’l, the first secret pet in Battle for Azeroth has been discovered by the WoW Secret Finding Discord, after they have been hard at work looking for clues. In order to get Baa’l, you will have to find multiple hidden pebbles scattered across Zandalar and Kul Tiras.

It is unknown if this is the end of the secret, as 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”.

Warcraft Secrets Launch Giveaway

With less than a week left until Battle for Azeroth launch, several achievements, mounts and items will become more difficult to obtain, and the Violet Spellwing mount will be removed from the game.

Raid and Dungeon Meta Achievements

The Raid and Dungeon Meta Achievements from Legion are not being removed, however as focus switches to Battle for Azeroth, groups will be focusing on newer content and it may be harder to find groups for them for a while. These achievements will become easier in Battle for Azeroth, however some achievements will still need multiple players or not be soloable.

Hellfire Infernal and Shackled Ur’zul

The http://www.wowhead.com/item=137575/fiendish-hellfire-core from Mythic Gul’dan and http://www.wowhead.com/item=152789/shackled-urzul from Mythic Argus the Unmaker are both having their drop rates reduced to approximately 1% on the launch of Battle for Azeroth.

Fisherfriends of the Isles and Conjurer Margoss

The Fisherfriends of the Isles and http://www.wowhead.com/npc=108825/conjurer-margoss are fishing reputations and NPCs. The Fisherfriends are not being removed, however will become more difficult as less people will be making or joining fishing groups for older content as Battle for Azeroth releases. Each Fisherfriend rotates on a daily basis, and getting Best Friend with all Fisherfriends rewards http://wowhead.com/achievement=11725/fisherfriend-of-the-isles as well as the Hidden Appearances for the http://www.wowhead.com/item=133755/underlight-angler.

Violet Spellwing

The http://www.wowhead.com/item=152901/kirin-tor-summoning-crystal, which summons the Violet Spellwing mount, will be made unobtainable on the release of Battle for Azeroth. The Violet Spellwing can simply be obtained from deafeating Heroic Argus the Unmaker.

Time is running out, and if you cannot afford to buy a carry then you should check the following Discord Communities for a chance at the mount:

Talon’s Vengeance

Talons Vengeance is a PvP faction unlocked through one of the four quest lines for the Falcosaur mounts.http://www.wowhead.com/item=142363/mark-of-prey are the only way to get reputation with this faction. From Neutral to Honored, you must farm these off players at either PvP areas or Falcosaur world quest areas using http://www.wowhead.com/item=142361/ivory-talon. From Honored, you can buy http://www.wowhead.com/item=142367/ivory-feather, allowing you to get Marks of Prey in Battlegrounds. Due to less players being in Legion zones, this reputation will be a lot harder to get to Honored.

Long-Forgotten Hippogryph

The Long Forgotten-Hippogryph is now harder to find because of Cross Realm Zone changes. As of pre-patch, the Broken Isles have been merged with other realms, meaning far less opportunities to find the crystals for this mount.

Check out the guide to Long-Forgotten Hippogryph to learn more about this mount.

Community Manager Ythisens has confirmed that the final part of the pre-patch event, The Siege of Lordaeron, will no longer need the pre-purchase of Battle for Azeroth to access and complete. Ythisens has also clarified that the https://bfa.wowhead.com/item=158075/heart-of-azeroth will be available as Battle for Azeroth launches.

As we go into the final week of pre-patch events, it is worth noting that the http://www.wowhead.com/item=163127/smoldering-reins-of-the-teldrassil-hippogryph and http://www.wowhead.com/item=163128/war-torn-reins-of-the-undercity-plaguebat will be made unobtainable on the release of Battle for Azeroth.
