This is a gnome NPC that wanders around Dalaran. Not currently interactable or attackable.
during his stroll, he enters the engineer shop and purchases some schematics from the grand master engineer.
he's also a leatherworker, saw him purchasing new skills from the trainer. haven't seen many lw magi around :P
He also goes into the wand shop.
...and enters Jedidah's mining shop and shows a magic trick.
3 Professions? He's....Amazing!
not sure but he may be related to the achievement "higher learning".
The Schools of Arcane Magic - Transmutation
was in the Legerdemain Lodge on the bookshelf. It remained there until The Amazing Zanzo entered the Lodge and walked past the bookcase to the table. Then the book despawned.
This is one of the 'player' NPCs located in Dalaran that walk about the streets casting spells related to their class and minding their own business, walking into shops etc.
I saw him dissappear in the guildbank on the northern wall in Dalaran's Merchants Bank.
"The Amazing" title is usually what magicians use ... magicians first starting out I think
They should totally have him walk up to the guild bank and say something like
"im in ur guild bank"
"steelin ur shardz"
He's Just. That. Amazing.
He is wearing full mage T6 and using The Nexus Key.
Reference to "The Amazing Rando" from the MST3k movie, "Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie - This Island Earth."
Part of the "Player-like" NPC that sporadically roam Dalarn. There are 20 total, one for every class and faction. If you're looking for these guys it helps to turn on "NPC nameplates" because they are all flagged for PvP.
The Amazing Zanzo
Danric the Bold
Moon Priestess Nici
Dak'hal the Black
Great Hexer Ohodo
I saw him and I'm thinking, "How do I get 'The Amazing' title?"
He's got duo-glows on his staff; Purple on top and orange/red on the bottom.
he's an alchemy at the same time, saw him learning new skills from the trainer.
4 proffesion ? that really makes him AMAZING
Just saw him go into Cartier & Co. Fine Jewelry and learn a few JC recipes. Then he walked to the Legerdemain Lounge and disappeared.
Just caught him learning from the Blacksmithing Trainer @ Tanks for Everything
To get "The Amazing" title you have to max out every profession in the game... at the same time
Just witnessed him walk into Talismatic Textiles and learn new skills. He has mastered 5 professions!
He will also polymorph a random player and laugh.
Look at my gnome, my gnome is amazing!
Apparently this guy also teaches Polymorph: Pig spell.
Well, he does in Beta and will hopefully continue to teach it when it goes live.
He must be on some sort of spawn timer because I can't find him -anywhere- in Dalaran.
Pretty certain he has a respawn and despawn timer. Using the following macro, i flew circles around dalaran on my first loop, i found him but he despawned before i was quick enough to fly to him and purchased piggymorph. Been flying around spamming the macro for 30 mins now and haven't seen him since.
/tar The Amazing
/script SetRaidTarget("target", 8)
an amazing magi with a not so amazing spawn timer =(
Respawn time is about 40 minutes and if he respawn near the alliance bank he will be avaiable only few seconds, be ready for click him!
Appeared in the tailor shop for me, trained something from the guy that's standing by the stairs that gives the patterns for the cloaks that require exploring achieves.
He spawned at 17:22 server time on the corner by the blacksmith shop. At 17:25 he walked to the leather working trainer. At 17:26 he left and walked to The Legerdemain Lounge where he despawned as soon as he got to the bar at 17:27:30.
Arg. Just missed him today as he despawned in front of the Guild Bank in the Merchant's Bank. Server time 2:11, coords: 42.1, 75.6. Boooooo. I'll get him next time. Oink.
i did learned the pigmorph today and he was at ally guild bank
You can add 32712 to your NPCScan and it'll pick him up at a fair distance.
Just bumped into this guy outside the Dalaran bank on my mage, and found that interestingly he teaches a second Polymorph spell that isn't present on other Mage trainers.
You sir, saved me clicking like a fiend for 5 mins. After reading your post, immediatly added Zanzo (wouldn't have thought to otherwise!). Just a few minutes after adding him to npcscan, he popped up right next to the alli bank and kindly taught me piggymorph. ^.^ Less than 2 minutes later, after having visited the Militant Mystic for a new wand, he despawned by the alli guild vault.
I was riding in circles in Dalaran looking for him. Came here to see if there was anything special about his spawn cycle. Tabbed back into the game and he was walking past me.
Been searchin' for this guy the last couple of days w/o any luck so far. The thing that urks me is that I learned of the alternate polymorph from my girlfriend who had NO idea he was a random spawn and just happened to stumble upon him to get the spell. Go figure for total luck.
...and as I was typing this I f---ing missed him, dammit. So much for the NPC scan I just downloaded alerting me with the bells and whistles that didn't go off!
Well, no sooner did I get finished typing my ill-fate than to be pleasantly surprised as he re-spawned at the Alliance bank. Found him using a simple "/target The Amazing" macro, so, maybe I didn't use the NPC scan right, but it seems basic methods won the day. Got him to sell me the spell and now my search is over. All this posting and reposting took about 5-7 mins so who knows what your luck will be. Happy hunting to any who have yet to find him.
I just learned Pig Polymorph from Zanzo today, in front of Alliance bank.
Today, after /target The Amazing , losing him 3 times while not understanding he could be ìnside one of the shops in the spotted locations, I found him again, with the target macro (took me well over 45 minutes mind you) walking the stairs of the dalaran alliance bank.
Also managed to delay him a bit so a fellow mage could be summoned (love it when the guild hits 25) and learn the piggy spell :).
Thanks for the tip to crate a macro :)
Just posting to confirm that with the current patch (4.2.0) this still exists.
*eddited to add my gratitude
I just learned the piggie poly from him on a Horde mage. I'm fairly certain that pre-Cataclysm I'd noted him to be "red" to me. I'm not sure if he turned green because I'm a mage or because he's green to everyone now, but I read other posts on here that refer to him as Alliance so I thought I'd post that I got the poly from him as Horde. I found him just outside the Alliance-side bank, the Dalaran Merchant's Bank, by the way. I'd hit ctrl-v to turn on nameplates and found the little guy about to wander into The Militant Mystic shop.
Zanzo and Juwanamana are the only mage trainers who can train Polymorph: Pig.
Using NPCScan worked for me, he spawned next to the mailbox outside the Alliance bank, a few others spawn there as well.
You need to be level 60 to Learn it.
Well i have been in Dal for about 9hrs and still have yet to see him. I have him on NPC scan. fingers crossed. i will post more info when i can
After about 15 minutes of searching, and a helpful target macro, I found Zanzo coming out of the north bank in Dalaran. So yes, he's still around but spawns randomly and takes a bit to find.
The Great and Powerful Zanzo! ...wait, no...
Just a tip: If you once had Polymorph: Pig, you don't need it again.
I had done the Archmage quest for the spell in WotLK, but couldn't find it in my spellbook, so I looked for this guy. I really wanted the Polymorph Pig, so I kept looking, after about an hour. Finally, after spam hitting the macro of /tar The Amazing Zanzo I found him!... I already learned the spell.
ok update this guy is still available as of the day of this post he like his pals pats the city and teaches the pig polymorph he seems to spawns does his route then despawns however he is polite enough to stand in 1 place while you talk to him and to my knowledge wont despawn while you talking to him but like all npcs in game his chat window will only remain open for a limited time before he starts moving again there is also an unspecified CD between each spawn i like many posters below found entering militant mystic the store right outside the merchant bank (alliance bank) so if you stay on the aforementioned bank steps you are almost guarantee to run into to him however for me npcscan did not alert me when i found him (it did cache him but no alert sound) so in order to make sure you do not miss you have sit there with your eyes pressed on the screen what did help me was to turn on name plates (ctrl V) sitting there you will see allot of the other npcs walking around but to my knowledge non of them actually give or do anything worth while for you
One out of 20 different class and race-specific NPCs that spawns in
. They are on a spawn timer of around 30-50 minutes.
Here's a list of them all:
Just to confirm for all those mages out there, he does still sell the polymorph to turn your enemies into adorable piggies.
I bought it today - appears the respawn timer is quite quick. Within four minutes of one of the other random NPCs despawning he appeared. Not sure if I was lucky in that respect.
Seems they hang around for approx four minutes as after I had purchased the spell and waited, the next random NPC showed up and he despawned.
Hope this helps as most of the older comments indicated the NPCS took about 15-20 minutes to arrive.
Confirmed for Horde as well. I thought he might be red like all the other Alliance NPC's but he shows up green for us. Found him just now and got it. He appears approximately every 30 minutes for 5 minutes max.
Also just to help a brother out: (this is a
macro to find him)
/target the amazing
(RaidTarget 8 is the skull, so you can use any number from "1" through to "8")
I made a video for all the Polymorphs, where to get them, the drop rate etc.
It's up to date as of Legion Pre-patch
Just found him outside of the southern bank in Dalaran. I spotted him about 10 minutes prior using a /target macro, but he despawned before I was able to reach him. The respawn timer seems to be very fast! I paid 2g 85s on my level 98 Human Mage. Yay pig polymorph!
In 7.1 he teaches Arcane Momentum so mages can blink based on direction!
As of August 10, 2017 he still trains Polymorph: Pig
Found him today in Dalaran in front of the Inn and got the Piggymorph. Didn't have to wait that long.
He seem a bit outdated because you can click on "How do I reset my Talents?" and "How do I learn Dual Specialization?" and then waste 10g on learning Dual Specialization which will have no effect since that concept doesn't really exist anymore. You can click on resetting your talents as well which will cost nothing but also do nothing.
I found The Amazing Zanzo. I learned Polymorph:pig. Excited, I looked for a target for my new skill, and found a cockroach. No sooner did I polymorph it than some little robot thing,
, popped out of nowhere and killed it. I looked around and found
, picking up the robot. He muttered something about killing bugs and wandered away.
Besides Polymorph: Pig, he offers dual specialization for 10 gold, if you accept he takes your gold and nothing happens. He also offers to reset your talents (he doesn't reset anything) and can enable Arcane Momentum (blink the direction you are moving instead of facing).
Despite it being defunct, he'll still offer to teach you dual specializations, and will take 10 gold from you. :(
He's an amazing something, alright.
Can confirm that as of 8.1.5 he still sells Polymorph: Pig & will teach arcane momentum.
Found him in Old Dalaran, in the city, not the sewers as the map would suggest, coming out of the profession area. He went into the Inn across from there and despawned. Not sure where his spawn point was. He likely rotates with the other class NPC's mentioned by Random0532 (21,702 – 8·35·222) on 2016/03/28, as I saw several of those as well. (Note no longer the 30-50 minutes mentioned but a new one spawned once the old one completed their circuit.) There do seem to be multiple spawn points for the various npc's - I did not wait long enough to confirm he always comes from this direction, but all seemed to path around this well.
I recommend camping by the well in front of The Legerdemain Lounge-but be quick as this was the end of his path. It did take maybe 15-20 minutes for him to show up, but probably depends on where in the rotation he is when you arrive. Look under mage training for the spell.
The respawn timer is indeed not bad. I found him near the engineering shop and used this macro (collected pieces from this thread) to set him to focus and mark him with the skull:
/target the amazing
Still sells the pig and rips you off with duel spec and the other things as of 8/19/2020
He teaches the
as well as the
his legion dalaran version
as well as this old dalaran version.
Shadowlands 9.0.5 - Waited for The Amazing Zanzo in Dalaran (Legion) for around 1.5 hours. He respawned inside The Legerdemain Lounge and ended his path in the same place.
I used the macro:
/target the amazing
Confirmed he is still walking around Dalaran as of Shadowlands patch 9.0.5.
I just learned Polymorph: Pig from him outside of Dalaran Merchant's Bank. I used both a combination of the spammable macro and NPCScan with ID 32712. It was NPCScan that got him for me.
