Anyone know how to summon him? I've been camping the area he spawns at waiting for the crystals already on the altars to despawn but with no luck. I can mine the crystals needed, but can't place them anywhere.
You're probably here and frustrated because there is no information on coordinates. Dw, I got you.
Location: 37, 11
How to summon? I don't know yet
This post explains how to summon him :)
Avarius is an Algan elemental rare that can be summoned from within the Brinestone Cove, deep within the Chitterspine Caverns. To summon Avarius, you need to obtain a Brinestone Pickaxe that can drop from rares or chests within Nazjatar.
Once you obtain a Brimstone Pickaxe, you can go to the Brinestone Cove and mine a Brinestone Deposit that is surrounded by 5 altars. Once you do, multiple Brinestone Deposits will spawn through Brinestone Cove, and they must be mined to gather special colored Brinestone Shards such as Amber Brinestone Shard. You can obtain 5 different Shards, and each shard must be placed at their respective altar. Once all 5 altars have their respective shards, Avarius will spawn.
Avarius can drop the Brinestone Algan battle pet.
I've placed the crystals, but the rare isn't spawning. Submitted a bug report.
---The goal seems to just afk and wait for people to spawn him and get a tag in. Recipes can drop one by one.----
It seems the drop rate on the recipe is not 100%. I've killed him three times in two days. On tuesday I killed him on my own for no recipe and Wednesday I've mooched two kills from other players. I cannot seem to summon him on my own, while having the pickaxe, the stones are uninteractable yet I can mine the nodes for the crystals.
Just going to keep track of kills til I get it: 7 (Got both)
Response from Blizzard:
I was more than happy to look in to this for you, and in doing so I found that other players have been reporting this problem as well. As a result, I have added your report to our reports about this to the QA team as well.
I also checked to see if there was anything we could do to assist, but as this issue is still being investigated, we will be unable to assist. As until we know the exact cause of the issue anything we do could potentally make this worse. The game is not designed to be forced so we have to be very careful in how we handle these to avoid causing problems down the road.
Please note though that it is possible for the recipe not to drop. It is not guaranteed to drop on the first kill.
Have killed him a few times. Only have gotten manapearls and grey items. Pet and recipes seem to be a low drop rate.
Similar to the Carnivorous Lasher for Herbalism, this rare mob requires an item to spawn, in this case the Brinestone Pickaxe.
, unlike the Lasher, Avarius summoned through the first time quest isn't phased. This means if you just stay around the spawn location and tag Avarius each time someone summons him for the quest, eventually you'll get the 2 mining recipes. This was during first week of 8.2 mind you, if you're reading this later you might not have people constantly coming to complete the quest.
Seems to work now. I got the 2 recipes on my 6th and 8th kills of Avarius btw, so you might need to tough it out and wait for other people to come along for the quest.
seems for rank 2 in both herbalism and mining you need to kill npc twice cause i didnt got recipe of rank 2 in first time
Killed him today using my 100 stacks of luck and both mining rank 2 recipes dropped together:
Good luck out there, fellow miners!
Edit: this was my 5th kill overall and 1st kill of the day.
Okay, so I followed the guide. Have the brinestone pick. farmed all 5 colored crystals (in multiples to deal with the 2 minute duration problem), and when I attempt use the crystals, the matching "shrines" are not interactable. At all. I watched several other player manage to interact with them somehow and summon a brinestone elemental. I assume this means it takes several attempts to actually spawn the rare. The problem is I literally cannot interact with the shrines. the only thing I can do with the colored crystals is use their on use effects on myself or a target mob. Am I encountering a bug or am I missing something? I tried asking other people in game when they managed to summon the elemental but no one seemed interested in helping me.

Coordinates are /way 36.93, 11.22. Take a group he heals himself often and gains 48% health on each heal. If you can't interrupt his heals as you burn him down solo you'll never be able to kill him..
I summoned Avarius on my first day in Nazjatar and the ritual is still not reset :( guess I won't be getting my Osmenite rank 2 any time soon...
So, IF YOU CANT REACH EVENT
I've spend around 12+hours on server-juming and sniping this event. 0
After this, i swaped TO WARMODE and got 2 events in 15 minutes on server-jumping. Got both of this recepies(Summoned him 2 times in a row).
So, switch to warmode and try it.
PLEASE PLEASE How do you keep getting Brinestone Pickaxe to keep killing him? I got it only once and blasted he didn't drop anything except some ore. I'm going for the ore upgrade. My Pally is all over the map doing quests since this opened and only 1 drop.
It seems that summoning Avarius is a once a week thing, when you mine all the colored shards and place them, your Brinestone Pickaxe is destroyed(maybe its after killing Avarius). You can tag other players summon for a chance at the recipe/pet.
NOTE: If you have the pickaxe in your bag, any other events in the same cavern (notably, the world quest
) will be PHASED OUT. If you're looking for world quests, make sure you don't have any of these once-a-week items in your bags; if you do, take care of them and see what shows up.
TL;DR: My first day in Naz, the emissary quest was also up. As soon as I opened world quests, I saw that there were more than enough, and set about finding them. Over the course of the time, I realized that some had gone away - but I wasn't sure which, cause I didn't really know what they were. I managed 2, and the only one left was Jumping Jellies, which I attempted for about an hour and then gave up. Later that night I went back to at least clear up the rest of my questlog, and did the pickaxe quest. All of a sudden, the Hungry Hydras wq was up again. I figured things had just cycled, and went after it. Getting there, I realized it was the same room as the pickaxe, and had it confirmed by a friend that yes, the pickaxe phases that room for anything else.
Fortunately, another wq had shown up, so I was able to get my last two without beating my head against the brick wall that is the jumping quest. (No, I didn't do the flying one from Kirin Tor in Legion, either.)
I had the pickaxe and was being phased into Hungry Hungry Hydras. The initial quest (which doesn't summon Avarius) phases you as I've been in parties with people on it and they go in a different phase to me. Same happens at Carnivorous Lasher and Vor'Koth spots - Once you hand in that initial quest at your base you go back to the normal world phase and any pickaxe/seed/chum drops are then useable to summon the relevant mob if the summon object is up.
The crystals seem bugged though. I see the lasher seed/eel pool up multiple times a day but the crystals for Avarius are always there filled in. Seemed to work fine first couple of days but haven't seen it work since (although I don't server hop so mine could be bugged where others aren't)
If the rank 2 recipe is not dropping, make sure you didn't forget to learn rank 1 and go to
to get it if you didn't.
I do not understand this seriously, i mean i cannot be that unlucky. I personally summoned the NPC 5 times, mined all 5 different shards using the brimstone pickaxe, and 5/5 times i dont get loot for either rank 2.
What could be wrong?
so finally got to kill him after being bugged for i don't know how long and none of the rank 2 mining skills dropped :(
I've been having the same issue others are having, where the crystals are in place and you can not mine/spawn Avarius. I decided to submit a ticket today and a GM confirmed the following
Specialist Game Master Coranyto here, hope the day's treating you well so far. :) I appreciate you taking the time to reach out to us about summoning Avarius! I was able to look into a few things on my end and believe I can help out.
The issue you're experiencing with this specific quest has been reported by many other players as well! I will be sending the details of your report on to our Quality Assurance team, who are attempting to reproduce the issue. Once they have done so, they will forward their findings to our Development Team, who will then determine a fix, and apply it to the game as soon as possible.
One thing that stands out from reports thus far, is that this issue seems to be server specific. The premade group finder is a great tool to help workaround this issue while it is being investigated/resolved. You can use the premade group finder in game to find a group on a different server, join them, and have your character cross realm phased onto this other server where the quest might be working a bit better.
So looks like the temporary fix is to try different servers. Hopefully this is patched soon
it was working yesterday after maintenance almost all day, like many other ppl I was able to summon Avarius and get one of those two recipes on my three alts (100 % drop) without any problem.But later, in the evening I was there w/ my guild friend and it was bugged again and it seems it still is.
This is actual bull*!@#, prevented from farming mats required to level professions just because they can't do their jobs.... billion dollar company btw....
i guess i'm going to have to park a couple of my toons outside of this place so i can get to it first thing after maintenance tomorrow. sigh. what a PITA!
edit: finally got this guy just after the maint. and he had the nerve to give me two 2* deposit recipes.
He was summonable for me today. We killed him, my friend and I both received
, and the summoning stones reappeared right away. We assumed he would not be lootable more than once the same day, but we tried anyway.
The summon worked, we killed him, and my friend got
(I already have R3). The stones did not reappear after the 2nd kill.
TL;DR: He is, for the moment, lootable more than once a day.
Can it drop the recipes only for the daily first kill, or can you farm it multiple time? Thanks for the answer.
As of me writing this, it seems that the entire Avarius summoning thing has been rewritten in the series of hotfixes.
It is currently an EVENT that spawns on some sort of a timer.
The event starts with a HUGE mining node spawning in the middle of the place where 5 shard pylons are. You need to "mine" it, and it will "break" into 5 "fillable" shards.
This bit is what you need your
for; if you're a miner and don't have one, you will still be able to run around and mine nodes if someone else has already mined the big one and spawned the 5 "fillable" nodes.
The part after this is usual - run around like chicken, trying not to die to hordes of fast-respawning mobs that were deliberately buffed to obliterate anyone that isn't 420 with all cooldowns ready, mine nodes, get useless same-color shards trying to collect all 5 colors before they time out. Well, you can "place" the shards as you get them, this sorta helps.
Once all shards are in place, Avarius spawns and gives you (and any miner who manages to land a tag) a shot at the two 2-star mining recipes.
You can FARM this one - you will need to do a lot of shard jumping. I am sincerely sorry to all the groups killing Nazjatar world bosses, but those are your best bet for a jump and stay long enough to do your thing... if you're lucky like me, you might actually find a group of people like you at it, thrice in a row.
Don't bother with tickets, apparently Blizzard devs are happy about all that grief, and consider it huge success. GM chats can be ...enlightening like that.
if you are looking for mining recipes, you can kill him multiple times untill you get the recipes.
Absolutely terrible summoning this guy! You have to get all the different color shards and of course this being blizzard it's 100% rng. So you end up getting all but one color then you spend the next 30 mins trying to get the last color.
Do I need 155 skill in order for the recipe to drop?
Apparently, you can go through all the trouble of slogging thru mobs, mining for the crystals, placing them, spawning the rare, killing it... and not getting the recipe to drop.
So, have fun with that, I suppose.
If the rock is up in the center and you have a brimstone pickaxe you can start the event. The empty crystals appear in the center pool.
You see an emote about brimstone deposits forming in the cave.
These are tall rocklike deposits and they do NOT highlight at all, but if you mouse over them the cursor turns to a mining pick.
The mined shards only last two minutes and there are many adds around the cave. So soon as you mine one, place it in the appropriate crystal.
Any of the brimstone deposits can drop any color, they can drop different colors when they respawn and you re-mine them. Be patient. Invis helps get around the crazy adds. When you get a color you don't have, immediately place it in the appropriate crystal.
When they are all placed, Avarius spawns. Before placing the last shard, clear the adds in the pool with the crystals and between there and the back pool. When you don't have his Kelp Holdfast spell on you, drag him to the back pool where no mobs spawn. Save all your interrupts for his Algal Bloom. It completely heals him. If you can't interrupt it, you will be fighting him forever. He just goes back to full health all the time. Fighting him in the back pool will keep the adds from re-popping on you while you kill him. I solo'd him with a hunter and boxing a shaman. But the key was when one interrupt was used, I switched to the other character to use their interrupt on Algal Bloom. Back and forth and finally he died. Of course, he dropped no recipes :>(
People here saying the mining recipe is not 100%. I'm not sure it's anywhere *near* 100%, I have summoned this guy near 20 times, and no recipe, pet, no nothing - not even any ore, which is listed as a 98% chance to drop. I haven't seen any ore in around 20 summons. Feels like something is squiffy with this guy.
What an annoying #$%^ this rare is.
Keeps strafing to your side so you have to actively keep realigning yourself to hit him.
Ok this mob can be painful because of
if you don't have an instant cast interrupt. I was on my warlock when I tried him for the first time chasing the pet, and spells like
only acted as delays on the cast of
as they are not technically interrupts. What I found through experimentation during what was becoming a verrrrry long fight lol, was that
works perfectly, even if you miss interrupting the
prevents all action from affecting the mob it is cast on - damage, heals, movement effects or anything else. So even if
gets the Bloom cast off you can keep it banished until the Bloom effect ends (mob receives no heal effect from the Bloom whilst banished), then recast
so you can damage it again.
I only play my locks for fun and have never done serious runs with them so unsure if this In fight usage of the spell is common, so excuse my ignorance if it is lol.
Great, I thought the mining rank 2 would drop for sure, now I gotta farm him :(
What the hell was Blizzard thinking about this poor Boss with his important loot. As of 8.3 I can't find someone to help me kill it, but it's impossible to kill this rare solo as a Druid, even with lvl 410.
At 50% he casts his selfheal. I can interrupt it with solarbeam, but then he will cast it again at about 5% remaining health and goes back to 70% rins and repeat. It's not that he is able to kill me, but I gave up after 20 minutes frustration and not a single player crossing by to help.
I need the osmenite recipe to farm effectively, but that is not possible as a solo Druid.
Please blizz change this - give us a regular quest - not something that relies on a buggy rare.
Hey guys, for those out there really frustrated that can't get the recipe to drop, please check if you trained RANKS 1 for osmenite from your respective trainer in nazjatar faction camp (ex Instructor Ulooaka for alliance)
I figured this out after about 25 kills of this god damn rare :S
The key is interrupting Algal Bloom
as it is being cast.
However the bare bones game will not tell you that it is being cast. You'll have to get an add-on like Quartz or Plater. Further for those with DBM; it doesn't cover non-instanced stuff hardly at all and definitely not here..
Worst Mechanic Ever!
Okay, so I mined and summoned this Rare, but no recipe... Just my luck.
Why is everything so luck based?
Had an issue that the event wouldn't reset, so I logged out of the character for about 40 mins.
When I logged back in it had reset, no idea if it helped to log out, but might be worth a try if you are also struggling with same issue.
