    4.0.6 Rare Creatures Return

    From the patch notes:

    Many rare creatures that went into hiding upon Deathwing's emergence into Azeroth have made a return! In addition to finding new homes in a post-Cataclysm world, they drop new, improved loot, provide a healthy experience bonus, and respawn much more quickly when killed. Happy hunting!

    Does anyone have any information on which rare mobs will be returning? Are there any significant rares with good drops which were taken out of Cataclysm that may make a return? It could be worth it to check the PTR to see if any have returned (I doubt anyone would be farming them on the PTR, so most should be spawned), to analyze the impact on the prices of their drops.

    (Also, this is my first post, so just let me know if there is anything wrong with it.)

    I believe this is the Northrend and Outland creatures that are required for the Medium Rare type achievements.

    Those northrend and outland creatures are still out there as I have killed a couple of them since 4.0 I believe this is referring to some Vanilla rares (with probably minimal value unless they drop a nice twink blue or recipe) that were not put in in the shattering and will be back in in 4.06

    The fact that it says they willl respawn much more quickly makes me feel like they are Vanilla ones. The current Vanilla rares that are still in the game have a very fast respawn timer, and I expect these to be similar to match.

    Well, that is disappointing then, because I was looking for rares in Outlands and Northrend and hadn't seen a single one.

    I have a thing in my guild where I pay 1k if someone finds one for me. I spam it in trade occasionally, but mostly I get crazies.

    I highly recommend the Silver Dragon add-on, which is amazing for locating rare spawns. There are several fans of NPC Scan as well, Silver Dragon has just worked out better for me out of the box.

    More importantly, I'd keep an eye out on the rare quality weapons and armor tabs of the auction house, specifically levels 10-60. Its easy to make some good coin by buying out low priced items (I personally snatch anything under 10g that is not crafted) and flipping them for profit.
