Finally, my parked alt awoke to sand blowing in his face. Found a rare after about half an hour of desperate hunting. As this lower level alt had no bandages, to avoid the 10% health penalty for fleeing, I'd use my Azure Whelplings 'Surge of Power' to kill the secondary pet in one hit so I could get back to hunting that rare down asap.
Definitely go for the secondary pet method - 5 spirit crabs (including a rare) and voila...
Flew over at about 7am server time, around 15 there - second one was rare. Looks like they can show up in large clumps.
Same story - heart-shaped lake, just one there, uncommon. First time looking, so yay!
Same thing as Soitseams: Level 1 rare outside of the Shrine. Used the terrible turnip - fastest rare catch yet.
10-15 minutes, by the teleportation gnome. :)
