Syd continues to be a slyly elusive squid for another month, slimy sneak!
6.1 is in Release build on Ptr, so I shall have other pets to hunt during the wait for my next chance at DMF.
Happy Valentine's Day, fellow pet fiends!

You will need to be revered in a guild that has unlocked the Achievement in order to buy this pet, if the requirements are the same as for the MoP Gold CMs pet Thundering Serpent Hatchling.
You are not actually required to have completed any CMs on your own, though if you want to unlock it for your guild by running them yourself, you will need to have 2 other guildmates to qualify the group as guild run.
The note on the description pet page, says you must claim it one one acct..that is true, but i can verifiy that the pet is summonable across all accounts linked to that entire battlenet account.
His battle animations are extremely adorable...I like the care they took making each one special. The details did not stop there however, they outdid themselves with his idle animations as well. His goofy grin under the plate helmet speaks volumes, especially after he stuns himself...I laughed hard watching him!
Thanks Blizz! :)
The one that I managed to acquire was indeed Blue, cobalt blue in fact..looks just like the Ancient spineclaws you kill to spawn the Monstrous. He is quite impressive :)
I too, caught mine from the daily special pool of Crowded Redbelly near the pet master in Townlong Steppes..the Large Pool spawned so I thought "what the heck' An alliance rogue and I shared a rock in the center and fished side by side...made for some fun as we tried to bobber bop..lol! Fought the sea monster that scared the crap outta me too :)
About a dozen cuties here at 6:35am est(server time). Saw from poor-rare in the pack. The early bird got it's rodent :) Magram Territory, Desolace
I am sooooo in love with him! Looking at the screenshot/pet icon...he is just another cat. But....wow, omg...in person, he is soooo much more! He has sparkles on his whiskers and Path of Frost effect, plus glowing blue eyes!
Thank you Loki and Talerin for helping me complete the achievement for this adorable guy!
I can finally order Gluth around!! He was my hunter's main nemesis in NAXX raids..."hunter kite those infinite number of adds" BLAH! :) The pet is awesome!
Went to the Offensive to do my dailies, lucky me..someone had just put out a crate! I battled pets for 18 of the 20 minutes..snagged a rare Rodent as well as it's secondary spawns..upgraded my Spiderling, Shore Crab to rares :) The rodents continuously spawn for the full 20 minutes.
After about a week of camping, I finally see snow! 8 am server time(11 my time), caught mine around K3. Snow is indeed zonewide, there are foxes spawning everywhere. I have not had an issue with quest phasing and this toon only completed a handful in Storm Peaks. Helped 2 guildies get to current crz area, we all managed to catch a rare on the 2nd try each. Snow lasted 1hr, foxes spawned throughout the entire duration.
I have to say the Festival Turtle has left me brokenhearted, been there 2 weeks in a row only to see my hopes for him crushed yet again. Between the late start and standing there for an hr and half to briefly spot a couple green paws an hr late. Waited til 12 in hopes that the end would result in another try, no luck...I certainly hope Blizzard changes the sawns to run the entire festival, not 4 turtles a week. :(
Primary pet at the Storm's Fury Wreckage in Deepholm.
10:45 server time found one each at Manaforge Duro(common) and Coruu (Rare), flew back around to post info here, saw no other spawns.
Mine came as the 2nd pet when I initiated combat with the Juncle Gribs in KW by Krasari Ruins.
Mynxie is quite correct..it does appear the best time to catch this guy is be there for the start of a storm. I plopped my dk 2nd acct alt at the chasm at 8am est on Sunday morning, watched all day til finally at 9:03pm est(6:03 crz st) it came in. Each chasm had a few dozen spawns in 2 waves, got mine and stayed to report. All spawns were dead within 20 minutes of start..high number of people. No more hatchlings were spawned for the remaining length of the storm. It ended at 11:10pm est. Hope this helps..happy hunting!
No problems finding this lava wave fiend :) Half a dozen in the cauldron, right in the fire pits. Was 12:30pm server time (not sure if that is significant)
Not sure if the rain is a timed event, rained on the Isle at 1:40pm est, today (Thursday). Farmed the other pets from 10-then, this was the first rain of the day! 2 guildies and myself caught a rare each...2 kills each!
I levelled 6 elementals from 1-5 farming for this lil guy's rare version! Was actually pretty fun, Tiny Snowman flips his hat while fighting..never would have found that out :) Just pick a new level 1 elemental as the old one reaches 5, makes the rng much less gruesome!
After a few mornings not managing to get on as early as I hope, I flew my Undead DK (seemed appropriate) to Karazhan area at 7am est with plans to camp her there for the rest of the week. Flying over the path, I saw the fantastic green paw! Raced down the stairs and low and behold 1 shadling! Uncommon! Over the next 40 minutes, no one else around, I battled 7 more as they spawnwed..got my rare!
After reaching 600 Inscription, the first thing I did was craft both kites for the guild! Only one complaint, the string is too long to see the kite unless you are staring up at it. Makes a pretty view though when you make the effort :)
