I spent the better part of a day upgrading this Northrend pet. I cycled between the Giant's Run, Wyrmskull and Skorn spawn points. Though the addon showed 3 Fjord Rat spawn points in Skorn, I didn't see a single one as a primary the entire time I farmed there. (I finally got a breed 3 rare as a second to a regular Rat.)
A note: even as a 90 I still aggroed the casters on the towers quite often (even though the mobs on the ground (who were 10x closer) - ignored me.
A nice spider for leveling, as it's one of the few low-level spiders with Leech Life gained at level 4 rather than 10. ~ It was my spiderbeast of choice untl the Molten Hatchling hit 20.
Was just able to upgrade this guy with a Flawless Humanoid Stone.
Level 11 stats are 672 HP, 143 atk, 114 speed
None on any of the servers I checked at 1600 either (have toons parked in 4 different battlegroups). However, I did experience what we are all likely to be suffering for weeks: recurring blasts of adreneline on spotting greenpaws belonging to Snow Cubs, Alpine Hares, and Irradiated Roaches. :p
!!! Just caught one, 19:09 Server time on Farstriders!
ETA: I predict the nerfbat. Windup+Prowl+Windup against a Beast just hit for 999 ... at level 8.
Or, The Importance of Being Prepared.
Thanksgiving, 7pm. After unexpectedly picking up a Twilight Iguana with low pets, to my joy I saw a Spawn! I landed, clicked - then kicked myself. A level 1 + dead pets in spots 2&3. ~ I Alt-F4'd, but of course when I got back in it was gone. ~ So I went off, caught a random Toad for the zone achieve, then came back for one last loop. Saw one, checked to make sure my team was healed, and clicked - and caught a rare. ~ Still screaming.
