About Netherwing Eggs


Places a pin on the World Map and Minimap for every known Netherwing Egg spawn location. Each pin has a tooltip with a detailed location description.

How to Use

Instal: Like any other AddOn. Set up: Works 'as is'. For options enter '/ne', '/eggs', '/netherwing', '/netherwingeggs' in chat.

Over 100 unique & documented spawn locations!


Players are able to collect Netherwing Eggs to gain Netherwing reputation. At exalted you may purchase a set of amazing Netherwing Drake mounts.

The eggs spawn in three locations in Shadowmoon Valley in Outland. The Netherwing Fortress has 12 possible locations. The Netherwing Ledge has over 30 spawn points and the Netherwing Mines have almost 60 locations.

A couple of these locations have been sourced from Wowhead or unverified sources and they have been noted as such. The remainder have been directly verified by this author and/or from screen caps provided by users of this AddOn.

Mine and ledge map icons are NOT muddled together


😃 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
😃 World Map correctly excludes the Mine locations (unlike other websites/AddOns)
😃 Mini-Map correctly excludes Ledge / Mine locations as necessary (unlike other websites/AddOns)
😃 No Ace libraries = no bloat
😃 Ultra small cpu/memory footprint

Bonus Features

A special icon (with tooltip) displays the optimal location you should stand for fast completion of the Not-So-Friendly Skies... daily.

Pay close attention to the Dragon Eye icon 😉

Chat Links

You may 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 (x,y) [Netherwing Egg link] "Location information".

If You Like Netherwing Eggs

While adventuring, map your way with X and Y and keep track of Sunrise & Sunset, pickup a great raptor pet with Adorable Hatchling Nests, search for Netherwing Eggs, hunt for achievement critters and NPCs with Rare Love, try Tip to enhance your Tooltips, go the Hard Yards, the most accurate way to measure distance, use This Scampi Happening for fish flavoured Tooltips, or Yarrr for pirate Tooltips, and instal Let Minnow to show off your fishing poles! You Cod Do Batter for fishing achievements and you'll need Dark Soil for The Tillers friendships. When you turn geek, turn to Fibonacci! Who wipes? We Don't Wipe, an excellent DPS maximiser!

">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". 😊

== v1.20 - 19th June 2017
* 1 x Double precision in the Fortress
* Zeroed alpha immediately Minimap frames are allocated = no more "flashing" or "stuck" icons on login

== v1.19 - 9th May 2017
* 1 x NEW MINE! (An unverified Ledge had similar coordinates so it was deleted)
* 1 x mine and 1 x Fortress now double precision
* 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
* Visibilty check for index [1] before Hide/Show of all icons = aids efficiency / fps
* Menu allows an option to be enquired upon and not just changed
* "Macro Commands" in the command menu, whilst technically correct, has been renamed to the more sensible "Commands"
* Double quotes used by both World Map and Minimap in chat, for consistency

== v1.18 - 29th April 2017
