Patch 8.2 Secrets and Mysteries – Rise of Azshara

Patch 8.2 Rise of Azshara is one of the major content updates in Battle for Azeroth, and with it comes many Secrets and Mysteries to be discovered and figured out by the community.

This guide will be kept updated throughout Patch 8.2 and we recommend you use the table of contents to quickly navigate to secrets that interest you and then click on the related pictures to learn more about each secret.

The Secret Fish

The following guide covers how to get all the Secret Fish required for the following achievements: Secret Fish of Mechagon and Secret Fish and Where to Find Them.

Completing the achievement Secret Fish of Mechagon rewards you with the Secret Fish Goggles which allows you to find secret fish throughout Azeroth. Completing the achievement Secret Fish and Where to Find Them rewards you with the Hyper-Compressed Ocean toy, which creates a huge water sphere that you can fish in for 15 minutes.


Fabious, one of the mysterious mounts teased by Muffinus, has been found!

To get it all you have to do is take a picture of you and Fabious with the S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera MkII. Fabious spawns every 2-8 hours in Nazjatar and slowly circles around the area before despawning. Multiple people can get the mount as long as they all have the Selfie Camera and take a selfie with him.

Here's a list of spawn points and locations in which he has been seen:

/way Nazjatar 27 30 Fabious
/way Nazjatar 39 54 Fabious
/way Nazjatar 40 11 Fabious
/way Nazjatar 49 58 Fabious
/way Nazjatar 49 85 Fabious
/way Nazjatar 75 51 Fabious

Mrrl's Secret Stash

Mrrl is a secret murloc in Nazjatar that sells many unique items, including the Crimson Tidestallion mount required for the Mrrl's Secret Stash achievement.

In the following guide you'll learn how to unlock Mrrl and get access to his Secret Stash, as well as how to play the Murloc Trading Game in order to purchase special items such as the Crimson Tidestallion mount.

Pepe's Robot Costume

Pepe is one of the most beloved and faithful companions in World of Warcraft. Added in Warlords of Draenor, he quickly took over our hearts and became a little celebrity. Nowadays, rarely anyone chooses to venture into new content alone, and with Pepe, you've got a friend with you all the time!

To unlock Pepe's Robot Costume, A Tiny Clockwork Key, you will have to find Pepe at coordinates 68.5 47.9 within Mechagon's Alternate Future.

To get to Mechagon's Alternate Future for the first time you will have to talk to Chromie at coordinates 70 31 in Mechagon when she is up as a daily visitor. If you've been to Mechagon's Alternate Future before and have obtained the Blueprint: Personal Time Displacer (random drop from npcs there) then you can craft and use a Personal Time Displacer to travel to the alternate future of Mechagon.

Postmaster Malown

Postmaster Malown is a hidden NPC that you can summon in the Stratholme Pet Battle Dungeon. If you defeat him you'll get the Malowned achievement and the Burnout battle pet.

To summon Postmaster Malown you will have to find a Discarded Letter throughout the dungeon and then go to the Market Row Postbox. Note that some of the Discarded Letters can only be picked up after you defeat Stage 6 or Stage 9 of the Pet Battle Dungeon.

/way 56.9 50.8 Discarded Letter
/way 59.7 40.5 Discarded Letter
/way 68.9 54.0 Discarded Letter
/way 57.8 36.9 Discarded Letter
/way 40.2 10.4 Discarded Letter
/way 57.7 13.8 Market Row Postbox | Postmaster Malown

Postmaster Malown can easily be defeated by using three pets with Flurry, Dodge and Burrow. For alternative strategies check Buuloki's guide here: link.

Tauren and Gnomes Heritage Armor

The Heritage of the Shu'halo is the heritage armor set for the Tauren and the Heritage of Gnomeregan is the heritage armor set for the Gnomes.

Since these Heritage Armor transmog sets do not appear in the Appearances Tab until learned, and there are no related achievements for unlocking them, we consider these transmog sets hidden and therefore we have added them in our Secrets Database.

Pearl of the Abyss

Pearl of the Abyss is one of the new mysterious items introduced in Patch 8.2. Originally it's source was "Drop", however it was later removed.

The item appeared in the Toy Box for a short while and then it was hidden. The hotfix on July 2 confirms that the toy can now be obtained, but the item is still hidden in the Toy Box.

One item with a similar name has been datamined: Pearl of the Abyss.

Bee Mount

Not much is known about the PH Bee Mount, however it was confirmed to come in Patch 8.2 back at BlizzCon 2018 at the What's Next Panel.

It seems that the mount is not implemented yet, but we can see that it might be related to a reputation grind.

Make sure to get Bumbles (it takes 7 days!) as you will be required to summon the Bee Pet: Bee Is With Me.
