Status Update (1)
Closing up shop! I haven't played WoW in well over a month, REALLY enjoying Wildstar (Koori on Exiles on "Orias" for the like-minded). So going to suspend my account until WoD. I still have it preordered and 'should' be back. But just in case I have a guild bank tab filled with pets I never got around to finding a home for. Some are level 25, most are level 1. Anyone have an interest in them? And no you can't have any of my rare pets ... I may be back!
Let me know via PM, I still have time left on my account.
Until we meet again, Happy Petzing All! ~ K

Going on 20 kills now with no pet, they really need to up the spawn rate for her if the drop rate is so slow. Seems she can spawn anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes (seen 33, 33, 40, 50, 55 ..) On the plus side I get a lot of stuff done around the house while I wait!
18 elite killed (560 normal, was having terrible luck getting elites to spawn once went 30 minutes without one) since the supposed fix.
Got mine! (5:30 server) It was poor quality for a moment but one of my nine undead stones took care of that. Location: Grizzly Hills @ 61,18 ... there is a large flat rock there and at the time a non-pet mountain skunk. I marked it and kept checking back ... and after about 2 hours there she was. I forgot to see if the skunk was still there too, to busy SQUEEING.
Rares are now in the game :) (Prior they were only available in uncommon)
Just confirming the rares are in the game :) Yay for us rare hunters!
Finally started spawning on whatever server Icecrown shares around noon that server time, 3rd one was a rare. Glad to have that one done, CRZ is dumb!
Some oddities I noticed while camping for my rare. I was killing the non-battle Snowshoe Hares and once as I went to wand one, it turned to a battle pet. I assumed I had mistaken it. Then it happened 4 more times. So don’t be too quick to off the little guys. Also if you do not kill the critter snowshoe rabbits they despawn within 60 seconds (Not sure about the battle ones, I never wait to see!). I do play on a CRZ server so that may be messing with me.
RARES are in game! Happy Hunting!
When I arrived there were 20+ snails, my cat accidently ate the only rare I found, now 15 minutes later and nothing has respawned. Very long respawn timer for sure.
I only saw one stand alone Infected Fawn in Silverpine, however if you battle any level 5 in Silverpine they have an add, and had 1/2 dozen infected fawns join in (though not a rare one yet)
Never saw these stand alone in Silverpine forest but if you battle any level 5 in Silverpine they have an add, got quite a few Infected Squirrels that way.
These are going to be my White Whale it seems, had an uncommon one but my turrets killed it after my trap missed. I also spent 3 hours killing the same herd of gazelles (every 7 minutes) and they were nothing but gazelles from noon to 3pm server. So if they are indeed tied to giraffes they even have very very low spawn rate or something more to it. Wish blizzard would make the Giraffe Calf one of the adds you get when battling others in Southern Barren.
These little guys spawn with their mommas so people taking the cub but leaving the momma makes respawn a long time (But not impossible) So I took to killing every cheetah I found. Took about 40 cubs but finally got a rare one.
