Finally caught one, this past Sunday around 8-9pm server. I was waiting for a friend in Dalaran, and decided to fly over Sindragosa's Fall to see if by chance there were any around. Saw one paw. Grey, but lovely all the same! Found another this morning at 11:38am server, and was uncommon. Killed him by accident so I forfeited the others. He reappeared at full health! Caught him and looted an Undead battlestone for him at the end. Hope the times help, check often!
Thanks for the info! Got one as a secondary to the first jungle grub I clicked on in Krasarang Wilds.
Thanks so much for the suggestion of rolling a gnome to find this little guy! After searching daily for a couple of weeks, I rolled a gnome one of my other servers yesterday afternoon and POOF! There were two right in front of me before I took the first quest. Also a couple of Fluxfire Felines. Grabbed the first roach and caught him (grey), which got my EK Safari achiev. Had a Flawless Critter stone in the bank, just waiting for him. Happy hunting!
Totally 'cheated' on this guy and bought him off the AH when someone had him up super cheap - 2400g as opposed to the usual 10k+. He is one of my favorites! Just a suggestion as an alternative to or along with farming, check the AH regularly. My husband laughed when I spent the money, but after kicking his butt in pvp battles, he wants one now. Keeping an eye on the AH hoping to lucky again. Happy hunting (or shopping)!
Stumbled upon this purely by accident when out looking for battle pets in the area. Caught a rare on the second one! I showed it to a friend and she wanted one, so we went back the next afternoon. None around, so we started killing off the non-bp critters in the Dry Hills, and a few Harpies. Within about 10 min, 5 spawned. She was able to catch an uncommon, and others in the area were happy to grab one too!
Followed the suggestions of clearing/battling other bps in the areas and it worked. On a toon that just started questing the zone, I flew around and battled spiders and roaches and one finally spawned at the devouring breach (turned out to be a rare). Thanks for the tip - there's none to be seen, start battling the spiders and roaches in the Twilight areas. This was about 8pm server time, Terokkar.
I was looking for this lil guy for a couple of weeks, flying around the zone. One evening I was flying low near Desolation Hold and one literally ran into me as he materialized. He was gray but I was thrilled to have one! An hour later after non stop battles I looted a flawless beast battle-stone and made him a rare. I have no advice to give other than when flying, stay low :)
After reading the comments, I flew to Skald and found a bunch spawned there around 2-4pm server time, Terokkar. First one I clicked to battle was a rare! caught him and left the rest for other people. I am glad I read about his feign death move - it threw me off! A great dps pet against critters, and a good choice to capturing others as he can take a lot of hits while you're waiting for your trap to work. Happy hunting!
