Tripping the Rifts Spawn Points

2 Nov

Achievement HO!

I’m all gung-ho to get the new Tripping the Rifts achievement.  The problem I’m having is figuring out where the level 80 elemental waves spawn.  After digging around on the official forums and various sundry other places I’ve found the following:

Sholazar Basin, east bank of the river just south of River’s Heart
Sholazar Basin, just west of The Maker’s Overlook
Borean Tundra, Magmar, west end of the Fizzlecrank Airstrip
Sholozar Basin, Savage Thicket, right smack in the middle
Borean Tundra, Valiance Keep, near Riplash Strand
Sholozar Basin, Frenzyheart Village, near the wasps
Borean Tundra, Taunka’le Village, just north of the village

Zul Drak, Voltarus, directly beneath
Zul Drak, Thrym’s End, about dead center
Zul’drak, Reliquary of Pain, east of the teleport platform (in the empty field)
Zul’Drak, Lights Breach, south east towards lake shoreline
Zul’Drak, Zeramas, directly beneath it

Storm Peaks, west of K3, in the Gnoll camp
Howling Fjord, Gjalerbron, right next to it
Grizzley Hills, Ursoc’s Den Area, bottom of the left stair way next to it
Grizzly Hills, Zeb’Halak, right next to it
Storm Peaks, Brunhildar Village, to the west of the village
Grizzley Hills, Drak’Atal passage, right inside
Grizzly Hills, Drakil’Jin Ruins, just north of the ruins

Dragonblight, Agmars Hammer (Horde), spawns in the SW corner of the town
Dragonblight, Obsidian Dragon Shrine, Next to the Ember Drake bones
Dragonblight, Naxxramas, undernearth it and slightly northwest
Icecrown, Ymerheim, slight north of Mordrethar Tower
Icecrown, Sindragosa’s Fall, just south of the text on the map
Icecrown, Argent Tournament Grounds, to the west at end of the cultist area
Dragonblight, Lights Trust, next to the camp
Dragonblight, Moonrest Gardens, right inside the area
Dragonblight, Bloodpaw Village (south east peninsula in zone), right inside the village
Dragonblight, north most Scarlet Onslaught camp, southeast from Frostmourne cave
Icecrown, Valkyrion (just inside the village)
Dragonblight, New Hearthglen, right in the fortress

Hope this helps!

    I have one more earth spawn point for you:
    Storm Peaks – Valkyrion.

    Its just inside the village and on the left when you enter, though I can’t remember if its after the first or second house.
