WorldMap-DalaranCity1

The Schools of Arcane Magic are a series of in-game books relating to the Higher Learning achievement. They can be found only in Dalaran and, unlike most books, despawn after being read and share spawn points, much like herb and ore nodes.

In total, there are eight locations where books can spawn. After reading any book, it starts a three-minute timer. The book despawns when that timer expires, but until then can be read by any number of other players, making "group hunts" for these books reasonable. Respawn appears to occur three hours, three and a half hours, or four hours after the book despawns, but it isn't always the same book which appears. Instead, a book appears to be chosen at random from the set of books assigned to that location. In addition, not all of the books which can spawn are needed for the achievement. A large number of ordinary (if usually humorous) flavor books share the same spawn locations.

Below is a list of each spawn location, with coordinates, screenshots, descriptions, and lists of the books known to appear in each location.
