Places a pin on the World Map and Minimap for every Razormaw / Ravasaur / Leaping / Darting Hatchling nest's spawn location.

How to Use

Instal: Like any other AddOn. Set up: Works 'as is'. For options enter /ahn, /arn, /rapt, /raptor, or /ador in chat.


Players are able to collect several raptor style companions/pets. Four of these spawn from within nests. You do not need to kill anything.

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.


😃 Resize the World Map / Minimap pin icons
😃 Choice of 13 pin icons
😃 If the nest is out of range of the Minimap, the icon will hover at the border to indicate direction
😃 Map Tooltips
😃 Chat links
😃 Fun raptor SFX whenever you open or click on a map with raptor nests
😃 Choice of baby (default) or adult random raptor sounds. Aw, they sound so cute!
😃 No Ace libraries = no bloat
😃 Ultra small cpu/memory footprint

Bonus Features

Pay close attention to the Raptor eye icon 😉

Chat Links

You may now link your finds to friends and guild members. Click in the Edit Frame of your chat channel, be it Whisper, General, Guild, whatever. From the Mini-Map or World Map hold the mouse over the egg location with the Control Key held down. Done! Format will be [Darting Hatchling Link] @ (x,y).

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! While fishing you'll wonder if This Scampi Happening? Oh, but it is! Why not Let Minnow about your fishing poles and you surely Cod Do Batter with your fishing achievements. While adventuring, map your way with X and Y coordinates and always go the Hard Yards measuring distance. Have some fun with Yarrr for pirate Tooltips or turn geek with Fibonacci. See all the hidden game asset IDs with Tip or Enumerate your frames. Achievement critters and NPCs receive some Rare Love and keep track of Sunrise & Sunset.

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 Donate because as Gallywix would say... "time is money, friend". 😊

== v3.03 - 3rd September 2017
* TOC version bump for Patch 7.3 Shadows of Argus
* PlaySoundKitID removed as of Patch 7.3.0. Replaced by PlaySound

* Tooltip for Takk and Dart swapped around. Doh!

== v3.01 - 19th June 2017
* Removed extra firstTimeIn declaration
* World Map's Tooltip now ANCHOR_CURSOR, as per my other AddOns
* Zeroed alpha immediately Minimap frames are allocated = no more "flashing" or "stuck" icons on login

== v3.00 - 9th May 2017
* Adult Raptor icon (if chosen) now blinks in the Minimap. Same as Netherwing Eggs
* localised SetMapToCurrentZone

* Choice of icons expanded from 8 to 13
* "Macro Commands" in the command menu, whilst technically correct, has been renamed to the more sensible "Commands"
* Standardised with other of my AddOns: When Control key is down, NO NEED for "show coordinates" option to be on. I.e. link in chat (with coordinates) regardless

* Possibly improve impact of this AddOn on higher FPS players who also have lots of Minimap stress
