By Leviatharan on 31 Aug 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

PSA: Currently there is a glitch that allows players to unlock the recolors for all of their class' hidden skins if they have discovered just one of the base hidden skins and its adjacent recolors (for instance, someone who found the Twisting Anima of Souls and unlocked its 100 Dungeons palette swap will simultaneously unlock the 100 Dungeons palette swaps for Frost and Unholy's hidden skins, even without discovering the Hook or Runes).
Many players are using this glitch to replicate the blue, red and bronze skins for Bone Reaper.
This glitch does not allow you to unlock the base appearance for the skin, however, and may likely be patched out at a later date.


EDIT 10/03/16:
The first Hook - the real one, in all it's purple glory - HAS BEEN FOUND by Füra of Drak'thul-EU, a.k.a. d00mgiv3r on Discord. Screenshot, Armory, Video Proof.

From what we can tell, summoning an Army of the Dead ghoul with Apocalypse after reaching AK6+ has a chance to summon Army of the Dead (in addition to the ghouls summoned - an extra one from the cast), who will drop Professor Putricide's Lost Journal upon expiration (Screenshot).
Reading the Journal points you toward Putricide's Secret Lab via a trap door within his boss room in ICC (Screenshot). You do not need to read the book in order to access the trap door, only summon the special minion. Within you will find Stitchwork; kill him to retrieve the Hook. (Warning: Stitchwork is 110, and he's not alone. You can find details on the scenario on my comment on his page.)

  • It appears it has a chance to spawn any time you summon an Army of the Dead ghoul with Apocalypse - even in Acherus, the Proving Grounds, or raids!
  • When the minion spawns, he will speak, asking "Why have I been brought back to fight for you?"; unfortunately, he will not fight for you before he despawns.
  • Spawning the minion gives you personal credit for Special Army of the Dead Summoned, which is what lets you into the trap door. You can't read someone else's book for credit.
  • The trap door puts you into a private scenario. Sorry, can't instance-share!
  • You do not need Reanimation or a certain number of unlocked traits in Apocalypse, just AK 6+.
  • Glyph of Foul Menagerie does not hinder or aid your chances of seeing the "ghoul". (The first two people who spawned him had the glyph, several since have not.)
  • VERY LOW spawn chance - we have some players going on spamming Apocalypse for 20-30 hours without seeing it. More ghouls means more chances - pop Apocalypse at max stacks of Festering Wounds to maximize your odds!
  • We have unconfirmed sightings of the mob spawning from casting Army of the Dead proper. Try cycling both to increase your odds!
  • Recommendation: Starting a trial with Trial Master Rotun in the Proving Grounds will reset all of your cooldowns. Use this to accelerate your cast rate!
If you're worried that you'll summon the special minion and not realize it, replace your Apocalypse hotkey with this macro:

Code:
#showtooltip
/cast Apocalypse
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418)
This displays your progress on summoning the special "ghoul" in chat each time you cast Apocalypse. If it returns false, you haven't summoned him yet; if it returns true, you have summoned him in a previous cast. (It will return false in the same instance you summon successfully, but if you're looking for the true/false, you'll see him speak anyway.) You can also play with the conditional to have it shout at you so you don't have to look at chat; for instance, you can have the Lich King namedrop your weapon when you add

Code:
/run if IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418 == true then PlaySoundFile("SoundCreatureLichKingIC_Lich King_Special01.ogg", "Dialog") end
(The "Dialog" determines what volume mixer it aligns with. I turn sound down and Dialog up.) Put the two together and you should never miss it spawning, even in the heat of battle! Plus the soundfile's cool.
Again, if the macro above returns "true", you've already won! Don't panic if you haven't read the book, just head to ICC!EDIT 10/16/16: Just got it tapping 8-stack Apocalypse on a Withered who popped out an Aethril node. If it's not a dungeon, it's worth it to cast at every chance you get, folks!Original text of this post:[spoiler]Disappointingly, nobody's been able to datamine the sources of the hidden artifact appearances.
However it is worth noting, of the known artifact appearances, there's been only one whose source is entirely outside of either the Broken Isles or Order Hall extensions (and even that "exception" has loose connections to the Order Hall). The many, many people who read this one's description and thought "I'll check ICC", as well as the other Scourge dungeons/raids, have thus far been sorely disappointed.
(Granting, it may in fact be because they're out of the way that many skins haven't been found yet, but I find it unlikely that this wouldn't have been found in the first place nearly every Unholy DK has thought to check, even with a low drop rate.)
Unfortunately for DKs, the only non-passive Order Hall perk we can research is for the daily combat pony. Maybe we're like monks and have a chance get one of the undiscovered two from tapping the Hitching Post - but again, like monks, somebody would probably have found it by now that way.
There has been speculation for several artifact skins that if it wasn't found yet in Beta, its source may not yet have even been implemented. However, blue posts and numerous tickets to GMs have all stated that the triggers are already in-game... we just haven't reached them yet. And no, they have no hints to give - they probably don't know the specifics either.
More likely, one of the steps to the skin itself may be gated behind Artifact Knowledge instead (as several were discovered at AK4-6 and likely will continue to be), hence why nobody has seen it.[/spoiler]

@chiane7, can you explain how exactly an 'appearance'/'skin' screws over a spec? Appearances don't offer a DPS boost or HP boost, or anything like that. They're simply looks. Cosmetic items.

By Leviatharan on 03 Sep 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

@Windcrawler I wouldn't call the text "misleading" - it's just flavor text, implying a connection to Icecrown as much as Band of the Ranger-General's text implies it comes from Sylvanas, or as much as any number of legendary items introduced in Legion imply locations with their text. Never been something we paid attention to before.

By Leviatharan on 05 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

Could be any number of reasons. The name is long, it may not show up if you're not in the spec when you query, you may have already earned it and thereby moved it to the top of your list, who knows! I have no trouble finding it, in part because I unlocked it a month ago so it's the only one highlighted in the middle of the list when I search for just "Hidden Tracking".

Hard to know right now since a lot of dk has been casting both at the same time. The orc spawn a little slow much like the ghouls, and then do the dialog.

By musicdude500 on 09 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

I exclusively used Apocalypse' cast. Here's my 2 cents though: casting both won't hurt your chances! You know what you could do that would be incredibly helpful to the community? Make a macro that casts both abilities and checks after each one /cast Apocalypse /script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418) /cast Army of the Dead /script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418)

By Jenangl21 on 03 Nov 2016 (Patch 7.1.0 )

I don't know if this will help, but when I tracked progress on the 2000 ghouls hidden achievement, the ghouls from Apocalypse, Army of the Dead, AND my gargoyle all counted towards it. Minus the Gargoyle, I would assume both of them work for the spawn.

By Aerynsun8449 on 15 Apr 2017 (Patch 7.2.5 )

It can be either, I got it when I cast both apocalypse and army of the dead at the same time. But I've read some people were getting it with either. I got it, incidentally, in Acherus on a training dummy after about 8 minutes of hitting it. I hit apocalypse every 1.5 minutes, I hit army of the dead after the first apocalypse hit and got the book when the CD came off for it and cast it a second time.

By VegetaEU on 06 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

This is how I got it:

Create a macro:
/target Trial Master Rotun
/script SelectGossipOption(1);
/click StaticPopup1Button1
/cast Army of the Dead
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418)

Go to proving grounds, you can find the NPC close to the training dummies.

Right click the Panda, spam the macro.
Run to the first spawn mob, spam FS, FS, FS, Apoc. Go back to the Panda, right click him, spam the macro again.

First day I spent like 5 hours in the dummy, and decided to use this method, got in about 10min.

Good luck!

Can confirm this still works in 7.2.5. Took me about 45 minutes over 2 sessions on my DK alt to get the Orc to spawn (I mention alt because I haven't been playing her regularly and using AotD or Apocalypse). I have mostly 850 gear, either crafted or from the Broken Shore, and I unequipped a couple items because the mob would sometimes die before I could get my Apocalypse off. Thanks VegetaEU!

By Anthraax on 06 Sep 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

My speculative bet is on [order-advancement=431]. Only time will tell once we get our Class Hall leveled to 5.
If I had to guess, I'd say that successful missions that have a chance to return Pile of Bits and Bones will also have a chance to bring you The Bonereaper's Hook.
Why would this be a logical connection? Abomination Hook, a clear inspiration to the design of Bonereaper's Hook.

I'd say it's more likely than the Violet Hold bosses (Festerface, Shivermaw, and Blood-Princess Thal'ena) despite their direct reference to Icecrown Citadel in the Dungeon Journal's Lore tab. While they are the only link in Broken Isles I've found so far that directly references ICC, you'd think that even as a rare drop chance, with the amount of DK's running Violet hold that someone would have seen it by now considering how many people found other hidden Artifact skins off of Dungeon and Raid bosses even in Beta.


Edit: All out of date speculation. The actual method has been discovered!
In addition to what Leviatharan stated above, the prerequisite triggers are thought to be at least AK6 as well as completing the hidden tracker achievement Hidden Tracking - Apocalypse Ghouls Summoned . After both of those have been completed, any time you use Apocalypse, the special Army of the Dead mob has a small chance to appear.
You will see the line in chat:
Quote:
Army of the Dead: Why have I been brought back to fight for you?
He will drop (Professor Putricide's Lost Journal). Once you read from the journal, you can go to Professor Putricide's room in ICC, find the Trap Door, fight Stitchwork and claim your The Bonereaper's Hook.

Same could be said for the Resto Shaman skin in Eye of Azshara, don't think anyone has gotten it despite it being a confirmed drop from there. I think they are just extremely Rare or require something that triggers them to drop.

By Anthraax on 07 Sep 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

That aren't locking anyone out of having a hidden appearance any more than the Resto Druid Staff requiring the Evergreen talent. There is a confirmed precedent in game for it.

i'm not sure it would be from Reanimation. I feel like it'd be really, really mean of Blizz to hide the skin behind an entire months+ days of waiting on top of then hoping for the item to come up. For the others the upgrade was 2nd or 3rd tier so it was unlocked within the first week or so.

16
By couchpotato2013 on 07 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

After looking at the few macros on here and the Discord, I decided to make my own. Forgive me if these macros are a bit crude (I hardly use macros to perform rotations or talk to npcs).

Stand here to interact with Rotun and be able to death grip: http://imgur.com/a/g0hjU

1) Here is a macro to leave and enter the scenario without "leaving the group":

Code:
/run LFGTeleport(IsInLFGDungeon())
2*) Sequence Target Rotun, *press interact button here*, select tank trial (number will change depending on how many options you have to select, this is a fresh character so I am selecting tank bronze), summon AoTD (I have noticed that AoTD sometimes doesn't cast which requires another press), the 44188 script, *interact with Rotun again*, select option to yield, confirm yield:

Code:
/target Trial Master Rotun
/script SelectGossipOption(2);
/cast Army of the Dead
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418)
/script SelectGossipOption(1);
/click StaticPopup1Button1
*This macro does require you to use a key bind to interact, I set mine to ` right next to 1.*
3) I noticed that a few people on the discord had to be reminded that they could death grip (insert dk mobility joke) and then use dark command before the 3x FS and apocalypse so here's what I made:

Code:
/target large
/castsequence Death Grip, Dark Command, Festering Strike, Festering Strike, Festering Strike, Apocalypse
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418)
Be aware that the script will spam your log with false until the orc shows up. If someone knows how to cut that out then I'm all ears to expand what little I know.
If you get too many minions and want to dismiss them or summon your ghoul/abomination:

Code:
/script PetDismiss()
/cast Raise Dead
This helped me a lot when grinding out 2000 ghouls summoned. Yes even with the [url=//www.wowhead.com/spell=207313]Sludge Belcher[/url] (abomination) talent chosen your total summoned will increase by 1. Before I remembered about PG and I was wailing on the training dummies, I spammed this when Apocalypse, Summon Gargoyle, and AoTD were on cd. Be sure to pick [url=//www.wowhead.com/spell=194916]All Will Serve[/url] for instant cast.
So in summary my rotation would be (before targeting Rotun): 1,`,1, [extra 1 if AoTD doesn't cast], *wait for mob*, 2 (death grip), 2 (dark command), 2 (FS 1), 2 (FS 2), 2 (FS 3), 2 (Apoc), 1, `, 1, wait out daze, repeat. You may not get 8 stacks of Festering Wounds, in which case you can add another FS to the cast sequence. I noticed that 3 Festering Strikes were enough if you worked fast enough (spam).
Again this is probably a few days too late to help but I thought it would be nice to compact down everything I saw and knew into a simple 3 button rotation. May RNGesus drop the journal and gift many legendaries.
*Edit: In typing all of this out I noticed that the cast sequence macro I had been using all night long has for some reason stopped working at around 12:30 AM central. It gives a not close enough error ignoring the death grip and dark command abilities. I really suspect Blizzard is behind this.
Ignore last edit. I just checked now and the /castsequence macro works fine.

Using this method in the PG was quickest/easiest. After 3 hours or so I started ending Trial early. Soon as hands appeared from Apocalypse calling I ended Trial.

Just logged in here for the first time in years. Anyway, just wanted to say the Proving grounds method still works in 7.3.

Took me about 15mins of resets.

I'm a fresh 110 with 52 traits. I had to take off pretty much all of my unsullied (880) gear for this otherwise the dude would die too fast.

Basically used same method as VegetaEU said. Also used the apocalypse macro from Leviatharan.

1. Talk to Rotan
2. Pick Damage Bronze
3. Use VegetaEU macro (casts army) immediately
4. Wait for all runes to come off cd
5. Spam FS 3 times and you should have 8 stacks
6. Apoc macro (spam it multiple times til the apoc ghoul summon animation is complete and watch chat for a 'true')
7. If you only see false, go back to panda and select "I yield"
8. Repeat

This thing is brutal. I never thought I'd say this but I am finally a proud owner of The Bonereaper's Hook! I can confrim this still drops in Proving Grounds as of 3/11/2017. At the bottom I will attach pics.

Its hard to put a number on how many hours I spent farming this appearance because I would spend a few hours here, an hour there, maybe 30 min some days. I'd say at least 12 hours were spent in Proving Grounds...not to mention the regular/day to day content I've put into my DK.

My advice to you is just to take it slow, you will keep your sanity that way. When I spent hours farming at a time, I was questioning why I pay for this game lol. It is funny how things work, though. I decided to take it slow and run only 20 PG trials a day(about 10min of farming). Low and behold, the second day it dropped on the 13th trial. Dont give up, good luck all!

BTW: When I went into Icecrown Citadel for my hook, I also got Invincible's Reins (dont worry...ive been farming this for a LONG time)

Chances are the book dropped for you without you knowing, and maybe the macro isn't working. I wouldn't know for sure! All I know is I kept using the macro, and it finally said yes but I never saw the book or special NPC spawn - but someone else told me to go to ICC and to Putricide's room, and I was able to get it too!

Figured I would throw out this random piece of information in case anyone was wondering. If you are running the true/false script for the Bone Reaper's Hook.....
#showtooltip
/cast Apocalypse
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418)
and it begins to show true and you never read the book from the special summon you can still go to ICC and obtain the hidden skin. I found this out because I was doing a Karazhan speed run for Nightbane and hadn't realized I missed it. I searched the whole instance but never found the book. I put in a ticket but of course GM's told me they had no info on the subject. So today for the heck of it I went into ICC just to check and sure if enough it was there. Couldnt be happier than I am right now. Don't lose hope friends you can still get it whether you missed it or not!

He does spawn in open world in Broken Isle. I got mine from casting apocalypse in Gloaming Reef : http://imgur.com/UqPT04c Bonus : I casted it with only 3 festering wounds. Higly likely that you only need to cast apocalypse only. No need for 8 festering wounds. Now does it mean you have higher chance spawning him with 8 festering wounds than with one ? Sadly I don't know. Nor does it work with 0 festering wound.

Sweet, thanks for the SS, and grats! I had suspected the Wound count was either completely unnecessary, or as you speculated, possibly scales (seems unlikely though), that's why I settled for 6 or 7 if the 3 FSs didn't get 8 wounds.

Putricide's Journal Area Trigger allows you to see a trap door in Professor Putricide's room inside the Icecrown Citadel raid.
In the hidden chamber is the Stitchwork that drops The Bonereaper's Hook. Unholy Death Knight Artifact Skin.

Edit: Hidden Door is under the green side slime sprayer.

------ ---- -- ---- ------

Wanna check if you spawned Putricide's Journal Area Trigger at some point?
You do NOT actually need to read the journal. it spawning is enough to flag your character "TRUE"
"FALSE" means you have not yet spawned the book.

Code:
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418)
Hidden Tracking - Apocalypse Ghouls Summoned because why not.
"tracker" for 2000 ghouls summoned by Apocalypse's Apocalypse ability.

Code:
/run AddTrackedAchievement(1076;
EDIT: I can personally confirm the 2000 ghouls achievement does not show as completed, even after the journal spawned for me------ ---- -- ---- ------
once you have obtained the hidden skin, ya can use this macro to check your progress

Code:
/run local q,x,_,a,b = GetAchievementCriteriaInfo,0 for i=1,11 do _,_,_,a,b = q(11152,i) x=x+a end local _,_,_,c,d = q(11153,1) local _,_,_,e,f = q(11154,1) print("Dungeons: "..x.."/"..b) print("WQs: "..c.."/"..d) print("Kills: "..e.."/"..f)
the format it prints in your chat box, with your current progress:
Dungeons: 0/100
WQs: 0/200
Kills: 0/1000
------ ---- -- ---- ------
You can use these macros to actually visually track completion progress
200 WQs Hidden Tracking - Appearance Unlock - Hidden - Color 3 (update criteria when world quests available)

Code:
/run AddTrackedAchievement(11153)
1000 PKs Hidden Tracking - Appearance Unlock - Hidden - Color 4

This skin only requires Artifact Knowledge 6 or greater, everything else is coincidence and does not increase/decrease chances.

Ease of Life step-by-step:

1. Get NPCScan addon, go to C:Program Files (x86)World of WarcraftCacheWDBenUS and delete Creaturecache.wdb then enter the game and type /npcscan, under the custom tad add the ID 111101.

2. Enter the Proving Grounds and start a bronze tank trial, precast army of the dead, then get an 8 stack Apocalypse off on the illusion.

3. If NPCScan does no scream at you, speak with Trial Master Rotun and yield, repeat step 2.

4. If NPCScan does squeal at you loot the book and profit!

By Chrisdetnawnuiea on 05 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

It just recently dropped for me. I won't bother linking screenshots because they're already provided by someone above, but I can say that it 100% does not require Reanimation Class Hall upgrade, or a certain trait amount (as already discovered). Again, I'm another with Artifact Knowledge: Level 6.

Also, just to clarify, you do not need to pick up anything (like the book) to gain access to the appearance. All you have to do is read the book that drops when the special Army of the Dead dies and/or despawns.

Best of luck to each and every one of you. Now go and get your hands on this weapon, and disembowel the living that stand in your path afterwards.

By AschenStrom on 06 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

It isn't true that "All you have to do is read the book that drops". People have reported that you just have to spawn the special undead (an orc dk) to gain access to the secret lab (a guy quitted the proving grounds before notice the pop, but he still got the access). So, if you miss the spawn but you get a TRUE using the macro: /script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418) you can safely go grab your secret skin in ICC

By Robl09 on 12 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.1.0 )

Finally got this thing to drop. I spent about 15-25 hours farming it, I lost track. Mostly just Netflixed binged while spamming target dummies for the first several hours. Until I started using PG to reset CD's. It took about a total of 5-8 hours after that (again, not keeping track entirely).

So here's the breakdown:
Rank 22 (unrelated)
Glyph of Foul Menagerie (unrelated)
AK 8 (doesn't matter after 6)
I used Armory 30% of the time (Did not proc from Army)
Proc'd from Apocalypse after well over 250+ uses.
4,000+ Ghouls spawned with PG.
Hidden Achieve "NOT" acquired. (I really don't think this matter)

Macros I used.

Code:
/script SelectGossipOptions(1);
/click Staticpopup1Button1
/script LeavePart();
and:
#showtooltip
/cast Apocalypse
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418)
One of the things I see a lot of conflicting information over regarding this Book is; people state, "Hidden Achievement - ghouls summoned, is required"
As far as I can tell, this is not the case. I have no idea what the actual number is to get the hidden achievement, but currently, accoring to Overachiever, I do NOT have the achievment completed.
So for the amount of ghouls I have summoned (with the occasional 6-7 insead of 8, accidentally).)
With using PG, and Target dummy in Acherus. I count 5 uses of Apocalypse in the course of ~3 minutes.Without getting too crazy with formula's, that's about 50 uses every 30 minutes. (50*8=400 = 800 an hour). I spend over 5 hours farming this with PG, and well over 10 hours without PG. I took the occasional break of course. 5 hours * 800 an hour is 4,000 ghouls summoned. Not including raids, dungeons, NOT using PG. It's safe to say I summoned well over 5,000 (that's being modest), until it spawned.
My question is, if you acquire the hidden achievement, will it show as completed? How many ghouls does it actually take? Some say 2,000. I think that's inaccurate, but who knows for sure? I can't figure out how to actually count a speific number.

Ok guys, i didnt find a post with this tip, so ill post it myself. If its a repost or something, my bad.
One thing you can do to get it, is unlocking one of the different colors from your hidden appearance with another spec.
I didi with 2 chars and works
I would recomend equiping the hidden appearance from blood/frost and grind honor kills in AV. if the game starts turtling (usually), youll get 150+ kills per run. at 1000 you´ll unlock the fourth tint for that artifac and also for the OTHER TWO specs (1/3 for dh n druid).
It doesnt unlock the original color, but if you are just going for the look of the hook and got tired of PG or whatever, this is a way to get it.

Me and my Bf both got the book that allow you to recieve the appearance the same way. PVP battleground we each killed an Orc DK 8 stacks wounds then cast Apocalypse with it being the killing blow then the orc zombie spawned talked, died dropped a book that u can click. Not sure if it was because he was an orc dk or because he was an orc but I feel 8 stacks + Apoc landing a killing blow on him triggered it but it happened for us both same BG same Orc DK. IF you don't want to farm casts for hours a day, try this method.

I tried today it worked for me the first orc I tested on, I dont think it was a deathknight orc but definately an orc I killed with 8 stacks and used apocolypse, he died from it then the ghouls and one orc zombie spawned, I will see if I can get more people to test, I think this method has a way higher chance than farming proving grounds.

I was skeptical, but I'm here to say that this is how I obtained the hidden appearance. I wasn't looking forward to 8+ hours of grinding in the Proving Grounds, and my eventual goal is to get the PvP tint, so I gave it a shot. Toward the end of my second random BG, focusing as much on orcs as possible (this is my only Alliance character, what are the odds?), I saw the book on the ground in enemy flag room (WSG). Checked the chat and saw the "why was I brought back" text, clicked the book for good measure, and as soon as the BG was over I set off for ICC. Thanks for the advice!

For me an orc spawned and after a few seconds he died along the other ghouls and the book spawned on the ground the name of the orc was still Army Of The Dead wearing blue tier 9 set (if not mistaken) so good luck to all you Unholy DK's out there.

So, I have been farming it for a few months now, and it has never dropped. I'm doing the PG method, and I never saw a skeleton spawn.

Problem is... I tried this.

/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418)

And it said True.
I've no idea WHEN that happened, or where, but it was not while I was farming it if it ever happened.
Question is... Is it gone forever? Or will it still have a chance of dropping?
Last time I farmed and got nowhere, I asked a GM and they basically tole me they would not help with hidden appearances. So I'm boned on that one.

Just got mine not too long ago, after 20+ hours of grinding.

My trait is level 22, and my AK level is 7 (http://imgur.com/i8p109u).
I have the Glyph of Foul Menagerie.
I DO NOT have the Reanimation Perk, as you can see i am still learning it though (http://imgur.com/nPJQRJS).
I was entering starting, then teleporting out of the Proving Grounds, back to the Order Hall, to be able to spam Apocolypse every 20-30 seconds (depending on load screen times).

I was using this macro to make it easier for me to keep track:

Code:
#showtooltip
/cast Apocalypse
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418)
Sure enough, after a while, the Book Dropped after the special minion spawned that said (which still caught me off guard):

I think the journal dropped for me while I was in heroic Vault of the Wardens on the final boss. I took a picture with the print screen button, but I'm not too technologically savvy to know how to upload it. I'll post more details as they appear to me.

Edit: Ok, yes the journal did drop, and I used the macro to confirm that the area trigger is working. So I headed to Icecrown Citadel and found the trapdoor. Once again, I took numerous pictures, but I don't yet know how to upload them.

2nd Edit: Ok, so I finally got the Bonereaper's Hook! Stitchwork turned out to be an incredibly challenging boss, for someone with an ilvl below 800. Earlier, I told Hellscream to take a hike, but then later, he came back after I died to Stitchwork three times. At this point, his buff really came in handy.

Notes about the instance: The mobs respawn incredibly quickly! They mostly drop broken bones and the like, and it is entirely possible to get mobbed by geists and ghouls and murdered to death.
- Like someone before me mentioned, I'd highly suggest using the Control Undead spell on Biletongue, later on in the instance. Doing so will make your later experience against Stitchwork much more worthwhile, as you can use him to tank Stitchwork.
- This is a sub-point to my above point. When you first enter the instance, you'll be met with an enemy attacking you. I don't know what his model is called, so I'll just call him Grobbulus. Grobbulus is special for the instance, as I also used Control Undead to use him to tank some of the geists and ghouls in my way, up until Biletongue. Unfortunately, Biletongue is much stronger than he is, so while they're battling, you should take the time to whip out your Control Undead spell on Biletongue.
- So aside from the Bonereaper's Hook, Stitchwork does not drop anything. If you loot him once, and then kill him a second time, nothing will drop.
- Interesting sub-point. After killing Stitchwork, I was wondering if it'd be possible to control him, and oh my god you can! It was just so amazing to just send him out to kill the endless numbers of ghouls and geists in the crypts below! It was an endless amount of fun and I totally suggest anyone who hasn't gone here yet should try doing so!
- When you leave the second teleporter, you come out on the side of Putricide's lab where the giant orange contraption/potion is, whereas the initial entryway was below the green contraption/potion.

3rd Edit: Pictures! I have one of just about everything.
4th Edit: In terms of making things easier to see/read, I turned my collection of images into an album. Now view at your leisure!

http://imgur.com/a/OTqL4

5th Edit: With regards to my second edit, I can confirm that the NPC that I call "Grobbulus" is actually called "Bloatstench." I'm not editing it in for historical purposes, but I just wanted to clarify that.
6th Edit: Please, ask questions if you want clarification on something. For example, I did not get the hidden achievement beforehand which shows that I summoned 2000 ghouls. It was just on the circumstances that I showed above. I looted Stitchwork with my unholy spec, and was capable of entering the instance multiple times until I finally got the hook. Then, the teleporter disappeared.

I dont know much about this since Im a holy priest but my friend just got it when we were running ICC for the glory achievement. He was saying something about a quest which he did not have. He said "i saw the trap door so I just walked in and tried even though I dont have the quest." Hope this helps.

EDIT: I have since boosted a DK and looked a guide myself, instead of relying on what my friend told me. So its a book that drops when you randomly spawn and Orc instead of a ghoul with Apocalypse. I boosted a DK and was doing ToS LFR to get it geared. After killing Mistress, as soon as I clicked "leave instance group" I noticed a glowing square on the ground around but it was too late. It was in that split second I left.

Went straight to ICC and boom trap door was there. It was the journal the Orc drops! This confirms that you DO NOT have to read/click on it, since I did not. So Im guessing this is what happened to my friend. He must have had the Orc spawn some time while doing world quests, raiding, ect and never noticed. I sure didnt mid fight. If I hadnt randomly turned around before I left the instance I would have never known it dropped. He almost never runs old raids so it totally makes sense why he would never bother to check ICC to see if the trap door was there.

If you are still looking it for just give it a shot and take a trip to ICC. Maybe the trap door will be there! Good luck!

Got this just a few minutes ago. Didn't have the hidden achievement to summon 2000 ghouls from Apocalypse. I'm at 7 Artifact Knowledge and got 17 trait in the Unholy artifact. Spammed the Proving Ground for 2hours with the following macro:

/target Trial Master Rotun
/script SelectGossipOption(1);
/click StaticPopup1Button1
/cast Army of the Dead

Wait for the apparition to spawn, cast 3 Festering Strike followed by Apocalyspe and use Wraith Walk to reach Trial Master Rotun faster. Need to wait 4 seconds since it counts as a failed attempt and repeat.

Doesn't seem to be related to the Army of the Dead spell since it only counts the summoned ghouls from the Apocalypse spell. Didn't use the Raid Dead spell nor the Dark Arbiter. So it looks like this is a pure RNG based chance to summon the Orc Ghoul.

Hope this works,
Good Luck!

" it only counts the summoned ghouls from the Apocalypse spell" How do you know this?

By MaikCiano on 11 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.1.0 )

if you use the Overachiever addon, you can search the Hidden Tracking for the Summoning achievement (search Apocalypse in the name). Only ghouls summoned by the Unholy DK Artifact count towards that achievement, which i still dont have unlocked. If you look on the comments of this page, you will notice that some have the achievement unlocked and some dont. I almost never played unholy DK since im a Blood DK and was frost before. Hope this helps.

Worst hidden event ever! I have literally managed to obtain about 85% of the hidden appearances on all toons and all specs and spent less time doing that than waiting for this to proc on my main. I'm terribly disappointed in Blizzard for this one. Hell, my time spent includes the Ret Pally event and multiple Withered scenarios; still no UH proc. How did this RNG % requirement get past their review committee?

Alright lads. Good News.
I have confirmed that the orc guy doesn't come from army of the dead. Only apocalypse.
You do not need to read the book.
PG still works.
Need at least AL of 6
Macros i used
/target Trial Master Rotun
/script SelectGossipOption(1);
/click StaticPopup1Button1
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418)

Basically just click on the guy then spam this macro to start. Every time it checks to see if you have got the orc or not. If it says true then you have if it says false then not yet.

When you wanna restart click on the guy again and spam this macro to end.
You have to wait for the stun to end then you can start again.
*personal opinion, don''t grind lads, just play the game it's more fun that way.
I hope this cleared all the doubts.
Good luck lads and never give up

Has it been confirmed that the orc can spawn from casting Army of the Dead or is it just from Apocalypse? Because I can farm PG doing just AotD a lot faster than doing AotD + Apocalypse.

edit: I was linked this picture as proof that it does indeed spawn from AotD. As you can see AotD is still on cooldown while Apoc isn't. Good enough for me!

By jrm316 on 09 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

TL;DR: Any SOLID idea on the drop rate? Estimation, perhaps? Just Apocalypse summons or all Undead types? And are people seriously grinding this or actually just botting? Or is this all just "Estimated Grind Times"?

(Read on for Flavor, or agitation, whichever comes first I guess)

So, I've been running the "math" on this...I just wanna be clear on something...

There's been talks that it has to do with the ghouls summoned from Apocalypse. I've seen some say AotD, personal "Raise Dead", 1000 ghouls from Apocalypse, 2000, etc...

One thing that's consistent? Drop chance.

I've seen some say it's taken 2.5 hours, others 6 hours, some in the 20+.

So I've taken a moment to compile a few things. If you max out your Apocalypse count via Festering Wounds, that's 8 Ghouls.

There are at least (that I've seen/counted), a rough estimate of 8 ghoul "variants", from Skeletons to Geists, and of course at least 3 or 4 actual Ghoul variant colors. Again, rough estimate, 8 kinds of "ghouls".

You pop a full 8 from Apocalypse. That's 64. 8 variant chances for each "summoned ghoul" slot. This is -not- including the mob that pops up. Adding that would end up being 72 in the roulette, if I'm not mistaken. (Math isn't my strongest subject, mostly applied when something of interest comes about, THUS this count scheme)

So now, there's a chance of 1, to pop up from 8 different (estimated) variants, 8 times. This is excluding Army, All Will Serve Talent choice, and Raise Dead.

The only consistency I see, is grind times. Again, GRIND TIMES....which seems that somewhere out there, you've got people literally somehow sitting for up to 20+ hours, without food/drink/bathroom breaks (assumed), landing this book? I mean, it's not even the actual -item- in question, just a book that allows access to a door in a raid that even hardcore raiders have been through? My question is.....why is Blizzard ran by a bunch of sadists? I'd like to get this without sacrificing precious time from World Quests, Mythics/Raids, etc. Who on this side of the green earth would sit for 20+ hours "GRINDING" a book, with no "break" in between without some sort of break? I'm not saying people are botting, but seriously?...I mean...yeesh....

At least give a percentage chance? Something? Anything? Positive answers of whether or not it's officially based on Apocalypse itself, or if AotD will help "improve" chances.

I really don't see how "JUST KEEP GRINDING" Is actually any help at all...

By musicdude500 on 09 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

Well, I think the idea is that you're not supposed to sit and grind it. You're supposed to just play and it will come eventually, so go do world quests and stuff! It has just as high a chance to drop out in the world as it would if you're sitting in Acherus grinding it. However, if you do want to grind it, just be patient. Be efficient with the cd reduction from proving grounds. Ya sometimes it really does take 20+ hours or even days; it did for me.
0
By jrm316 on 09 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

Not gonna lie, never was the patient kind (and yet math...yeah, anyways...) It seems to me the system is slightly flawed. It doesn't seem to be the kind of item that just "pops" to someone that's in the heat of questing, rep grinding, etc. Yet, there doesn't seem to be any type of solid numbers, at least a few digits, to give an idea on the possibility on what to look for. It all seems speculative to me. Something just seems off about the entire thing. Thus the "Blizzard must be a group of sadists" remark...lol

By jrm316 on 09 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

Yeah, see I never caught -any- of that, it was straight into the "Grinding this for x amount of hours...". Personally, I feel as though the finding was "accidental" (which probably was), but I feel a lot of the techniques in grabbing the hidden artifact appearances have been severely screwed up. Blood's is from the final chest in Withered Army Training, a chance drop, yet Beast Mastery Hunter's -buy- it? Make it challenging by having people USE the spec to actually -get- the appearance, like Unholy, and most likely Frost. Many seem like they don't even seem like they're doing that.

By Milesofmachines on 10 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

I spent 18 hours grinding, over three days. If you want an estimated drop chance: if its based on ghouls spawned assuming my farm time was the median (idk if it is) the chance is .0025 (if i did my math right, idk), that being said the chance is almost certainly not ghoul based (the 2k achie has nothing to do with it, and he spawns in addition to your cast, not in place of a ghoul) If it is based on Apoc or AotD casts, then the chance is .02% (assuming my 5184 casts is the median) Feel free to correct my math, somebody. Some bot it for sure, I didn't, neither did many others.

By cstober2010 on 16 Dec 2016 (Patch 7.1.0 )

No confirms in a while, leads me to believe they canned the proving grounds cheese trick. If this 2k ghouls BS is true, I finished that within an hour. I was summoning 8 ghouls every 10 seconds for a couple hours.

However, if the proving grounds method still works...heres an efficient way of summoning:

1. Enter any PG mode
2. Right click on NPC
3. Click yield once
4. Summon Army of Dead
5. Click accept yield
6. Repeat

You will finish your summoning while stunned. Get this down to super sonic speed and you'll be summoning 100 ghouls every 2 minutes. I had 40ish ghouls alive at all given times lol. Fun to watch them line up to croak.

If I get my Hook, best believe I will edit to confirm it!

Hey everyone, as this is one of the more complicated hiddens...I thought I'd share about the addon I use to track for appearance progress and hidden stuff!

This addon, Hiddden Artifact Tracker, actually can actively per weapon track this stuff!

And if you hover on the weapon, it's in the tooltip.

1. your main ghoul//abom doesn't count as ghouls summoned! so don't bother spamming dismiss and readd!

2. you'll find it handily trascking your AotD and apocolypse tracking.

3. SUPERZOMBIES COUNT!

4. making ghoul elite = doesn't couint

For some (possible) clarification, I stood in proving grounds, restarting over and over, summoning well over a thousand ghouls via army of the dead, nothing happened. went outside to acherus, used Apocalypse about three or four times on a training dummy, the guy spawned and I got the book. I think it's pretty safe to say that this most likely spawns only from Apocalypse and not AOTD. But that's my 2 cents anyway.

I looted this today, 4/20/17, as I was rotating Apocalypse and Army of the Dead cooldowns on a target dummy in Acherus: The Ebon Hold (it procced on Apocalypse not Army of the Dead, so the rumor continues). I had the Glyph of Foul Menagerie on, so it does not affect the spawn of the special Army of the Dead Orc. He did not speak, but he did spawn the special book when he was summoned.

Summon:
https://scontent-ord1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/17917431_145837792618822_8435098522662668042_o.jpg?oh=afc730b95de5714480682db37aeb1008&oe=599744AE

Upon reading the book, the player learns of a secret trap door in Professor Putricide's lab in Icecrown Citadel that leads to his latest creation, Stitchwork.
Summoning the special Army of the Dead NPC grants access to the trap door, not reading the book! Do not worry about clicking the book.

Entry:
https://scontent-ord1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/17917706_145837879285480_6850199776711872841_o.jpg?oh=67aa9ef1d74a25d2c06e28e24efda7ec&oe=594E0E03

The player then travels to Icecrown Citadel and clears the way to Professor Putricide's lab to access the trap door. I had already cleared ICC on 25H but the door was still accessible. Players may or may not need to kill Putricide before delving down into the trap door, or may or may not need to clear the entirety of the raid first.

Trap Door:
https://scontent-ord1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/17834962_145838222618779_8477198759724214679_o.jpg?oh=2d84ed775340b86d60163f307688b89a&oe=597DFA7C

Upon descending down past the trap door, the player finds him or herself in a secret room full of undead. Across a chasm there waits Stitchwork. The player must run down into the chasm and run through a tunnel to reach Stitchwork. The chasm and tunnel are full of ghouls and geists, but are easily slain.

Destination:
https://scontent-ord1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/17973794_145838139285454_9093072846983132650_o.jpg?oh=62e58cfc9768c9bec964b192e8787999&oe=597C15FA

After the player reaches and subsequently slays Stitchwork, he drops the The Bonereaper's Hook which when used grants the player with the hidden Unholy Artifact Appearance. Stitchwork is not difficult to fight, and players can loot the item no matter what their specialization is nor what their loot specialization is set to (I slayed Stitchwork as Blood with my loot spec set to Blood). Players do, however, have to be in the Unholy specialization to use the item.

Took me about 4-5 tries to get the orc to spawn in PG, I used the Bonereaper's Hook for Dummies guide and it worked perfectly. I'm also 98% sure he was summoned from using Army of the Dead because when I used the Apocalypse macro it yielded false but when I used the Army of the Dead macro it yielded true.

I had also done ICC H25 earlier for the Frost appearance (with no luck) and was able to go back in, use the trap door, and get the appearance. Very easy fight and I high-tailed it out as soon as I got the drop.

So i decided it was time to farm the challenge and hidden artifact skins for all my class/specs before BFA. this has taken the longest to get by far due to the RNG. the quickest way to farm this is by doing the proven ground method i also made a couple macros to help speed up the process

Quote:
proven ground method: http://www.wowhead.com/bonereapers-hook-artifact-appearance-guide#comments:id=2571812
this 1st macro will start the trail for you then spawn army of the dead. After the 1st time doing the trail you will need to use the macro twice in order to start the event and spawn AoTD due skills not being reset until after the event starts, the macro also has a checker, where it will print false if the book hasn't dropped yet and true for when the book does drop

Code:
/target Trial Master Rotun
/script SelectGossipOption(2);
/cast Army of the Dead
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418)
/script SelectGossipOption(1);
/click StaticPopup1Button1
if you haven't done any the trials then the macro above will be fine, if like myself you have done all three the damage ones then you will need to change the 2nd line /script SelectGossipOption(2); to /script SelectGossipOption(4); the (4) basically referees to the line in which the bronze tank trail is on
the second macro will grip the mob to you taunt it then cycle through Festering strike multiple times, before using apocalypse, you could delete one of the festering strike so you only use the spell twice but since the mob can take a fair bit of damage i decided to go with 3 to ensure i got the max number of ghouls every time. Again you will need use the macro several times in order for it to skill through all the skills.

Code:
/target large
/castsequence Death Grip, Dark Command, Festering Strike, Festering Strike, Festering Strike, Apocalypse
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418
you can then stop and reset and start the trial as soon as you have used Apocalypse, you dont have to kill the mob.

I doubt this will get seen with all the other comments, however I just got the journal to drop yesterday when killing a rare elite. I am sure that has nothing to do with it dropping, however I do want to point out. I DID NOT summon the 2000 ghouls, I have been tracking the hidden achievement with Overachiever and checking the progress every so often while questing.
http://i.imgur.com/j2svbu8.jpg

I have screen shots of the achievement still showing "in progress", yet I have the book on the ground in front of me. In saying that I also want to say that although the achievement shows in progress I think the achieve isn't very accurate. I have been playing since release and at least 6/7 hours every night, except the 5 days I was in Vegas. I found it very unlikely that I had not summoned 2000 ghouls by the writing of the original post.
http://i.imgur.com/hDx3GMp.jpg

I don' know if this helps however I was actually at artifact knowledge level 8, perhaps as you get higher in artifact levels the chance increases. I submitted pictures however I am waiting for them to be approved.

That's not the 2k ghouls achie, that's a different one that, as you see, doesn't do anything. The Achie that wants 2k is Hidden Tracking - Appearance Unlock - Base - Color 4 - Death Knight, Unholy (wowhead shows it requiring different types of ghouls, in game it just says "x/2000" and goes up with any pet summon.

Best method for grinding it: 8 stacks of festering wound on target dummy in acherus, apocalypse, enter proving ground, start bronze dps, immediately leave, cooldowns are reset and you rinse and repeat. Took me 21 hours, don't get discouraged if you don't see it after grinding a bit.

Just so you know:

There is a hidden achievement called Hidden Tracking - Appearance Unlock - Base - Color 4 - Death Knight, Unholy which tracks the number of Ghouls summoned by Apocalypse. There is also an achievement calld Hidden Tracking - Apocalypse Ghouls Summoned , which actually does nothing.

Nonetheless it is highly probable that the 2000 ghouls summoning is a prerequisite to make the item appear.

Note: Addons like Overachiever let you track hidden achievements.

It's been reported a lot of people has gotten the appearance without having 2k ghouls summoned. So it's hardly a prerequisite. And even if that was the case, I'd not worry too much because pretty much every Unholy DK may have already done it since legion's launch (had this achievement 2 days after legion came out).

By Ashamaz on 13 Oct 2016 (Patch 7.1.0 )

I finally got the orc spawned. I spent about 10 hours on dummies in Acherus and in PG expecting him to spawn. After 10 hours, I gave up. But then I thought maybe mogging your artifact might cause orc to not spawn at all. So I removed transmog on my weapon and got the orc spawn in about 25 mins. Maybe just bad luck or maybe a bug. Worth a shot imo.

They could have added a challenging questline or elite npc to fight for the hidden artifact skins, like they did for the green and purple wolfs for the hunter or the green fire for the warlocks.
Instead we now may pray to RNGesus once more and spam our artifact ability, but thank the gods we are not alone in this situation. (Look at them ret paladins camping the slime lel)

I'd prefer paying 8k gold like the BM hunters do over doing this. Hope the next hidden skin will actually be hidden or locked behind a challenge.

Ok so I don't even know if this book needs to spawn anymore, I have not seen the book spawn but the script /script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(4418) shows true when I use it. Maybe it did spawn at some point and I missed it? Who knows but I can 100% confirm you don't need to click / read the book. I went to ICC and the transporter was there. Possible the book is just a hint to go have a look?

Run the script, if it shows true go to ICC then we can confirm if the book is just a hint and you don't need it to spawn or if it does need to at some point.

By Killer12321 on 17 Nov 2017 (Patch 7.3.2 )

I'm almost positive that the PG Method NO LONGER works for farming this artifact appearance. Couldn't find anything about it for 7.3.2 so I'll post my experience.

I decided to farm PG since that's what people said would have worked, and with the quick luck that people had been getting from 7.3, plus knowing that hidden appearance drop chances has been raised, I figured it would only take about 30 minutes. Boy was I wrong; I farmed it for probably 6 hours one night and then 3 more hours the next morning with no luck. Finally I gave up and decided to go check my dps on the training dummy and BAM, spawned for me after my SECOND Apoc (with 6 stacks). I read of other accounts where people were getting it from training dummy over PG but no confirmations that it was literally impossible to receive in PG anymore.

You can still go try and farm it in PG (like I said, I did it for 9 hours so maybe that helped my luck and I would have gotten it if I did it a few more times), but I suggest going and hitting the training dummy for 30 minutes first before doing Proving Grounds, just in case!

Did it in PG, got it after 1 hour 30 minutes of farming. It still works and is frankly way faster than utilizing the training dummy (since you can reset AoD and artifact ability every time the orc doesn't spawn).

By admiralsweaters on 13 Sep 2016 (Patch 7.0.3 )

I'm just gonna throw this at a wall and see if it sticks for anyone.

Reading the artifact lore/story/whatever for tupacalypse, It's inferred that the last owner of the blade (before adrian) resided in badlands, and may have got the blade itself from inside blackrock mountain. My search has come up with nothing but maybe there is something worth finding in either badlands/burning steppes/blackrock mountain.

The problem im having currently is that there isn't any significant event that has happened in these areas that would come from apocalypse (diseases, distrust, and the like),.

The other theory the story presents is that the blade was cloaked and buried in the area where Laith Sha'ol fought Aegwynn, but it's hard to determine where they fought exactly, since the places that Laith wandered to with the blade are unknown, such as Corwell, which he more or less destroyed.

Any ideas?

So, an observant guildy pointed out to me a small jinyu house and fish statue in the water south east of acherus in the broken isles. It's just before the drop off into the fatigue zone - but given that there is a set of random fish-themed structures put out of the way, and yet so close to Acherus specifically I can't help but think they may be significant. I searched around for a while in Unholy, loot on Unholy, Apocalypse equipped, even with the Underlight Angler equipped and didn't find anything :/

Maybe one of you can put the pieces together, just adding a my bit to the search.

Credit for the find goes to Postcard - my adventurous guildy (unless this is not a new development)

Edit: There are several pots scattered around the immediate area didn't see anything in them, but perhaps there's one I missed? Honestly, grasping at straws here haha

As with most of the Unholy DK crew, I have been searching around for clues or anything really on how to get The Bonereaper's Hook and in my search I realized most likely we will not see it till Nighthold unlocks. The reason I think this is because of Apocalypse's history and it being made by the Dread Lords, and Nighthold just happens to have one big bad Dread Lord in it, Tichondrius.

I have the original and the purple one unlocked for blood dk for the hidden appearance and i don't see it unlocked for unholy, so this is false on what you said. Don't give people false hopes on a skin that might not even be able to be obtained yet.

I have seen 2 people with the Bonereaper's Hook. What they both had in common was the achievement Mythic: Nythendra .

This boss has abilities of pure death and decay!

My biggest bet is that it drops from this boss.

What color was the skin? If it wasn't purple then they almost certainly obtained it through the bug exploit.

Next time, please link the armory of these people so we can see the weapon.

Everyone is using the appearance bug. I dont think this has been found.
