A definite go to pet for wiping the floor with elementals! Will take out every trainer elemental in three hits.
I was pleasantly surprised by this drop! I just arrived at the Timeless Isle and found I was spending most of time DEAD. The elementals in the cave were bout the only thing I could kill as a priest with flame buff and pw shield. Didn't know about it and wasn't even sure what I looted!
It levels up easily, the nimbus is perfect lvling pet spell for slotting in something useful, esp if joined with anub idol for his annoying missing demolish!
I wish I had taken this one for the original pick. I have battled this stupid elemental every day for three months and no sign of this missing spirit. I have duplicates of all the others but yet to get one of these. I wonder if Blizz nerfed the drop rate as they used to be cheap on the AH, now they are outrageous.
Agree about taking down the tonk and monkey! I start with Nexus Whelp, time the arcane storm right and monkey can't stun you either. Quicksand and goodbye tonk and monkey. This is a great pet for mechanicals! Some elementals just don't have his clout
Something very odd is going on with the pet battles today. I was having the issues of logging on that Blizz has been trying to correct all week. Was doing the ach for 400 uniques. I was at 389. After the rolling restart I jumped to 399! This beauty just appeared in my journal! I know I never got it. also got a second Emerald whelpling. Haven't worked out what the other extras I picked up yet but wow, thank you blizz! I named him Mystery
Lots of comments how to get him, not much on him as a pet. So I'll add mine, he is an awesome pet! I literally lvl'd him to 25 in 3 hours. At lvl 11, he could actually kill lvl 24-5 critters in Pandaira. Huge bonus xp, and he jumped up quickly. And when he hit 20 and got a healing spell? OMG could this guy get any better! He is officially one of my favourite pets, and he's so cute!
Their location is your one stop shopping place for pet leveling. After doing the trainer whom it is a gift to fast level a lvl one pet to 6 with Jack's first move, you can then go on to eyes. As said they single spawn so perfect for a lowbie to take a shot then switch. They always seem to be plentiful. I've found 2 rares, only come in one build. Bit mean ganging up three against one tho. :)
For all the snow accumulated in the Storm Peaks, why the hell is it never snowing!!!
I got this on my first run to AQ since starting bet battling, didn't even know I had picked him up. Looking at "it" all I can say is "what the heck IS it?"
I found the double rare spawn with a zooey snake just by the Binan Village gate, where the final boss comes for the scenario. Stopped to have a look at the snake and was surprised to see both. But reading how plentiful the rares are, I should have gone with the snake! But the fox was so cute.....
It does pack a punch with mana surge, can kill all three wild pets, but when it does, I've noticed I don't get any XP for it. Anyone else notice that?
This fricking annoying pidgeon! I'm having trouble finding one I can battle, (get off the pillars!)and when I do they have all been poor. Killing them all to respawn. The upside is, everyone I have been able to engage has brought a rare friend! I've had 5 so far.
ETA: finally gave up and just grabbed one, I have better birds to use and this is just for ach. Geeesh!
I am feeling ever so cheeky! There was only one spawn that I could see wandering around inside Valgarde, I snuck in and hid in the graveyard by the wall and when it got close enough I engaged it and it was a rare! Whoot! I was concerned that pvp players can hit you when you are taming but wasn't sure about the guards. Happy to report a troop rode by on horseback while I was taming and nothing happened. Waited til they left before final kill. mounted and left asap!
I found a rare that might be difficult for anyone lower level to tame, he was in the lava by the warden's cage under the bridge. The only approach to tame him was to stand in the lava which continued to do damage during the battle. Luckily at 90 it didn't do too much damage to me but might be difficult for a lower HP to survive.
Found one arathor EU right at the entrance from Mt Hyjal, small area of trees. Talk about Sophie's Choice, this one was the first one I have seen and I have been looking. It was poor, but it was paired with a rare Robo chick! Decisions decisions. So I caged the owl and killed the robo chick :(
I was collecting the "unique to area" pets and annoyed at myself that I didn't pick up one of these the night before. Was by Raven Hill/Twilight Grove border checking out the Dusk hatchlings and there was a lone widow spiderling, sort of stuck in a tree! It was 10:30 am so it is possible to find one during the day. I grabbed it for ach, only a common but at least it saves me a trip back here. Duskwood gives me the heebie geebies!
