Zaricotl[56, 44] is an elite rare carrion bird in the Badlands.

After killing a player, Zaricotl displays this emote:

Zaricotl seems much calmer now that it has eaten the remains of <player>.


This bird used to drop a [Corroded Black Box] which started the quest Alliance 15 [40] The Black Box. However, both the box and the quest were removed from the game.


  • Zaricotl is likely named after Quetzalcoatl
  • For a short period after eating the remains of a player, Zaricotl will not aggro players unless attacked.
  • Given his very high level comparedly to the level of players in this zone, and his elite status (he hits very hard), he can be an extremely bad surprise for players questing in the zone.

Patch changesEdit

  • 0100WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.3.0 (07-Mar-2005): Zaricotl no longer drops an NYI (Not Yet In) quest item (the Pocked Black Box) for Horde players.
