Tanzar is one of the NPC's that you save while doing the Timed Event in Zul'Aman. You save him by killing the Bear aspect boss, Nalorakk, before the timer runs out.

It is also an easter egg - his name is an anagram of Tarzan, who used to live in a jungle and Zul'Aman has a jungle environment as well. The loot given depends on the order you kill the bosses in, more info can be found at the Zul'Aman timed event page.

See Zul'Aman NPCs.

Tanzar later accompanies Horde players on their ill-fated ship ride into Vashj'ir, going down with the ship when it sinks. Much later players of both factions encounter him within Thistleshrub Valley[30.4, 65.6]
in Tanaris, riding with the caravan that heads into Uldum. The caravan is attacked by pygmies and captured, but later escapes as part of the introduction to the zone. Tanzar continues on to the village of Mar'at[50, 40]
with most of his fellow escapees, and he can be found haggling with Hanbal and Samaki near the docks.

Quotes Edit

  • Conversation with Tanzar after he is rescued in Zul'Aman

Tanzar: Hooray! Tanzar be free, mon! What luck! All that an' not even a chipped tusk. Charmed, mon. That's what I be. No sense denyin' it.

You ask: You're welcome... Now tell us what's going on here!

Tanzar: Ok mon, a deal be a deal... It was night when we all snuck in to Zul'Aman fer a look around.

All was quiet, till we be hearin' a rustlin' sound, like the wind through the trees. Before we know it, we be surrounded by these savages and their pets! Next day I be wakin' up here, stuck in a cage.

Day an' night, one by one, prisoners be gettin' killed. Every time on be dyin', that bear-troll be lookin' stronger.

That be all I know 'bout this place, mon. And I don't wanna be knowin' any more!

You ask: What can you tell us about Budd?

Tanzar: That man be nuthin' but a fool!

Fame, fortune? Phooey! This place be nuthin' but a deathtrap, mon!

I seen all kinds a' trolls in my day, but these, they be different - sneaky, strong, tricky.

Seemed to me like they knew we was comin'...
