Adorable Hatchling Nests

Version: v4.02
by: Taraezor [More]

My new version is a Handy Notes Plugin here!

Places pins on the World Map and Minimap for every Razormaw / Ravasaur / Leaping / Darting Hatchling nest's spawn location. Each pin is customisable, has coordinates and difficult nests have extra tooltip information.

Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português Brasileiro, Русский, 한국어, 繁體中文, 简体中文

How to Use
Instal: Like any other AddOn. Set up: Works 'as is' but is configurable.

Minimap Options: Left Click or Shift Left Click on a pin to change the pin texture. Each click cycles forwards or backwards through a list. Changes will also appear on the World Map. Applies to a single pin only. Excellent for fast marking of visited locations or locations where a hatchling was found. New!

World Map Pin Options: Click on a pin. A Drop-down menu appears. You may select a texture for that pin or apply the texture to all pins. Changes will also appear on the Minimap. New!

World Map "Magnifying Glass" Options: Click the button in the top right of the World Map. Check boxes allow you to show/hide the hatchlings, play sounds and to show coordinates. As appropriate, there are options to reset all pin textures and to display relevant World Map zones. Changes will also appear on the Minimap. New!

Command Line: Enter '/ahn', '/arn', '/rapt', '/raptor' or '/ador' in chat. Use '/ahn s 30', '/ahn s 40' (for example) to change the pin sizes.

Chat Links: Activate the edit box of any chat channel. Hold down the CTRL key. Move the mouse over a pin. Link, description and coordinate data will be pasted to your chat channel. Just hit ENTER to send!

Players are able to collect several raptor style companions/pets. They spawn within nests in different zones. Some zones have multiple possible spawn locations. The hatchlings may be traded or listed on the Auction House!

The Ravasaur Hatchling spawns within Ravasaur Matriarch nests. There are five possible locations in Un'Goro Crater. The respawn timer is several hours.

The Razormaw Hatchling spawns within the Razormaw Matriarch's nest. The nest spawns hourly and is located on the central platform within a Wetlands cave.

The Darting Hatchling spawns from one of Dart's nests, of which there are four possible locations. These spawn every couple of hours.

The Leaping Hatchling spawns from Takk's nests every hour. The four possible locations are at the base of a hill in the Northern Barrens.

😃 Wetlands shows either the cave entrance or the nest as appropriate New!
😃 Fast navigation to the relevant*map zones New!

Bonus Features
Pay close attention to the Raptor Eye icon 😉

If You Like Adorable Hatchling Nests
Nobody can resist an adorable Raptor Hatchling pet or the magnificent Netherwing Drake and Long-Forgotten Hippogryph mounts. You'll of course need Dark Soil for The Tillers friendships and a Loose Pebble for your Dog! A familiar treat awaits if you complete Dalaran's Higher Learning. As you journey on this Long Strange Trip, map your way with X and Y coordinates and have some fun with Yarrr for pirate Tooltips.

Cookies, Beer & Donations
It is all about the cookies and beer although, and don't let Gallywix know about this, a "thank you" in the comments section fuels my programming appetite and is very much appreciated. And then, you could cut straight to Click here to lend your support! because as Gallywix would say... "time is money, friend". 😊

Idea for a different addon?

Sorry to put this here, but I'm not sure where else to put it. I just spent an inordinate amount of time making macros to create waypoints for finding the Long-Forgotten Hippogryph in Azsuna. This would be something along the lines of your Netherwing Eggs or Adorable Hatchlings. I used the list at this comment:


because it included comments in the waypoints. I was spending a lot of time searching 'is this in a cave under me? Is there a cave under me?' and got tired of it.
