I have been doing a lot of hunting with my fellow guildies and alliance in-game, and through forum after forum. When i started playing this game in beta, i stumbled upon a lair in Barakk Varr. It made me so excited that i found something with a level 40 hero monster in it, that no one seemed to know about. Ever since i have been hooked on them. For my first post in this blog, I figured i would cover lairs. I will be editing this post after the content has filled up to make it look more attractive. In my posts to come I will be covering larger lairs more in depth. I will be starting with the Menagerie Lair because there is a ton of information out there that i have compiled for it.

seems like people have some confusion about lairs in general.. so here are the facts as we know it:


Respawn Timer: 12 hours.
Instanced: No
Locations: In every tier, some in RVR lakes, some not. they are "hidden" heroes that players find on the journey to 40, or if they read this.
Drops: blue lvl 36-39 (for 40 heroes, i believe... could just be 36.. or 39.. or 38.. i just know its around there)
Accessible to both realms: Yes.
Wrap up: You can have 6 people, 2 people, 5 warbands, 4 warbads of order and 3 of destro, doesn't matter... its just like any other mob out there, just with a 12 hour timer... and they are hostile to both factions.

This list is incomplete. Mythic has said there are at least 30 lairs

The following heroes are less than level 40:

Lair of Kamilla (Traitor's Rest): (11) RVR (drops weapons)
Norsca: 26k, 62k
Each race must stand on a specific pedestal.
Note: not every race in-game must stand on the pedistals, just each race on your side.

Lair of Lady Alisha: (11) RVR ( drops weapons for crit chance )
Blighted Isle: 35k, 51k
Three runes must be activated north of the lair.

Lair of the Bandit Queen : (11) RVR ( drops helms for resistance and -crit )
Ekrund: 58k, 3k
Kill a player with the dark energy buff. Also heard that you can bring a BW or Sorc to kill themselves and get a rez, and it should open that way.

Badlands: 23k, 62k

Lair of the Shambler: (31) ( drops helms for block/parry/disrupt )

Behind the Battle Objective.
Must jump on a series of broken walls to enter.

"Bleakwing Perch": ( drops shoulders for crit reduction )
: 45, 61.5
There are a bunch of nests with eagles eggs.
Kill all the eagle eggs then the Bleakwing Patriarch level 40 champion will fly down and attack you. Make sure all your party are clustered together. The first move the Partriarch will do is knock all of your party members up onto the ledge. Inside the cave is the Bleakwing Matriarch level 40 hero.

The Matriarch has a really nasty AOE move that takes off approximately half health. Not sure whether it's cone or random or what.

"Grimshimmer Tower"
: Saphery: around 46k, 60k (drops chestpieces)
Arixxis the Scout, a tiny sprite, has been seen sputting all over this area.
He is a neutral level 40 champion. Once killed, he drops an item named Grimshimmer's Ley Stone used to port up to the ledge above. The tower is filled with champ harpies. Deep in the tower is the hero, Lady Grimshimmer.

Lairs that require special ways to gain access:

Lair of the Defiler
: Ostland: 7k, 62k (drops unknown)
(currently unknown how to enter)

"Seven Lords with Seven Sons

Faith corrupted, life undone.

For young pilgrims, four to come."

There is a great discussion happening on this lair in this link.

Lair of Gholnaros the Deathless
: Dragonwake: 23k, 42k (drops weapons, shields, offhands for +/- threat, -parry/disrupt/dodge, +healing )
To open this lair you must f
ind all three dragoneyes. Each one is found in a random location in the tier 4 High Elf/Dark Elf RvR Lakes.

- Eataine

Xaphan the Pyre Lair
: Caledor: 54k, 27k ( drops weapons for +healing/damage )
Requires clicking on six candles around the world. (They are named Altar of Xaphan in-game.) After you have clicked all 6, you open the book in front of the lair. One person needs to click all of the candles in order to click the book to open. You can click the candles and go to the lair whenever you want after that, there is no timer on them. Once you use them on the book, in order to open it again you need to go back and click all six candles.
