There are countless comment threads filled with spam across the Internet for strategies on camping and killing Aeonaxx. Aeonaxx is a rare spawn in Deepholm that drops the Reins of the Phosphorescent Stone Drake. I've been camping him now for probably ~5 days on and off while running NPCscan and doing work. I'm mostly in a static position. For those with experience on camping/killing Aeonaxx, can you please provide a strategy for what worked for you?

First, I assume you've read these three threads. To sum it up:

  • Aeonaxx spawns around the temple of earth, you can sit on the entrance to The Stonecore with npcscan running
  • Aeonaxx is extremely rare, in your 5 days there is no guarantee he even spawned.
  • If you see the corpse of Aeonaxx, it is highly unlikely he will respawn again that day

Unfortunately, the best strategy is to plant yourself down and check Sound in Background in the game options. npcscan will play a loud alert when it locates the dragon. So it is best to do something outside of WoW and wait.
