Most of you already encountered at least one rare spawn or maybe some hidden treasure around Pandaria.
The rare spawns reward you a random rare or if you are lucky a random epic item for you to wear, some bag of goods and gold. The same goes for the hidden treasures. There are a lot of them that reward you only gold or some expensive “trash” item and some of them give you wearable blue items.
In both cases, from rare spawns and hidden objects, you can get pets, vanity items and some special useful things. Let's see what actually you can find and where from.

How to get these items
You'll have to fly around a lot and camp a lot to get these items, especially on the high populated realms.
There are some nice tools to help you out and the one that you'll need it for sure is the NPC_Scan addon.
Most of the rare spawns are added and if you want to add something on your own you can do so, by adding the NPC id.
Just remember to clear the Cache as often as possible if you want this addon to be accurate.
Now, tell me if you already own any of these items and how hard was for you to get it? Also, what are you farming at the moment?
