Black Lotus Spawns

Each of the spawn zones has a small set of spawn points for Black Lotus. Only one Black Lotus will spawn at a time in the zone. Check sites which focus on gathering WoW data to see maps of the spawn locations. It's estimated that the respawn rate is 1 hour, possibly spawning on the hour.

Spawn Maps


The Black Lotus is probably either a reference to or inspired by Conan the Barbarian stories in which a highly venomous plant known as the Black Lotus first appeared. It could also be a reference to the card Black Lotus, from the Magic: the Gathering card game, in which the Black Lotus card is among the most useful and expensive cards in the game.

Patch changes

  • Patch 1.7.0 (patch date:2005-09-22): Black Lotus is no longer soulbound.
