After killing a player, Zaricotl displays this emote:

This bird used to drop a [Corroded Black Box] which started the quest Official alliance mini-icon [40] The Black Box. However, both the box and the quest were removed from the game.

  • For a short period after eating the remains of a player, Zaricotl will not aggro players unless attacked.

  • He appears in three main locations:
