I have a macro set to target this, and have managed to do so several times... I get three cheers in, but have yet to have it appear in my journal. Any clue as to why it would take more? I've done it mounted and unmounted, so that doesn't seem to matter.
I got one today (first time I did the level 3 quest, I was surprised at my luck!) but it was only poor quality. I had a dragonkin stone in my bank, so I just upgraded it, but I was surprised that it looked rare then turned out to be not.
I got my drop at 311 kills according to Rarity, though I hadn't updated it before I did the quests. So it was probably closer to 500.
I can't find Chapman ANYWHERE. :( Without the flowers, can't see the quest giver, no matter what city you're in. Is anyone else having this problem?
I'm guessing that it's a time problem, as my server is CT. Hopefully in a few hours, the flower-selling NPC will be visible!
This fellow is excellent in battling... in fact, I've actually soloed Lucky Yi a few times (lucky times) with him. I also use him in the Fire Elemental battle. His haymaker, when it hits, is absolutely devastating.
When I got mine (early on, and was just collecting to 'have them all') I had no idea about breeds. Apparently mine is a breed 5! I will say, I /love/ this guy for pet battles. He's my go-to against dragonkin, with that kick ability then his devastating combo hit.
I have a lot of snakes, but for some reason this one appealed enough to me to level him up, and wow. I use him as a staple for the Fabled fights against Nitun and Kwai the Gorger. He doesn't have anything super 'fancy' but he's a good, solid linebacker. :)
Got this fellow after quite a few runs through Kara... but well worth the farm. Smokes a lot of the other mechanicals! And his vocalizations just crack me up.
Don't despair! I farmed this little guy for -weeks- and according to Rarity was at 1614 (and had just whined to a friend via skype that I didn't think it would ever drop) when BLAMMO! There it was. :) I'm a geek, I named it Serenity.
So hang in there.
As a note, I found the most efficient way to farm was to run (no mount) from the first spawn (near Zabra'jin) all around the upper curve of the lake, then ride my water strider around the bottom end. Gave them time to respawn.
I /love/ this little guy. I hadn't paid much attention to him until I starte seriously leveling some pets, and used him at level 22 in the Uldum pet battle daily. WOW. He rocked it, and I was almost sad when he hit 25 and it was too easy!
I have seen these as primary spawns as late as 8:00 am CST, but they DO come as secondaries other times of the day.
I farmed this sucker for at least three days, but I think Swamp of Sorrows is by far the easier place to do so. Mostly because they're not spread out all over the place, you can just run around the little waterways, and they respawn pretty quickly. Glad I finally got it! And I finished listening to an audiobook while I ran around. And around. And around.
Yay, I was so thrilled to get this today! No daily, so I could just kill at my leisure. I was at about 190 kills (according to rarity) total, so... seven or eight elites? I do love that addon, as it gives you a little 'achievement' style notice when you get the drop. Otherwise I might not have realized I had it! Can't wait to start levelling him.
I was helping my husband clear out his duplicate pets (he's only JUST NOW getting interested in them) and noticed he had this one. I commented. He said he was going to put it on the auction house since it was so rare. I cried (well, not really). Today, he decided to GIVE IT TO ME.
I am so happy. Now if all my farming of oozes in Swamp of Sorrows would finally pay off...
I actually got this as a drop while questing on my very first toon back when BC had just opened! My husband used to make fun of me for learning it as a companion instead of putting it on the auction house for thousands of gold (I had no idea at the time how rare it was). Needless to say, now that he is collecting pets of his own, he is V. Jealous of mine! It's still one of my favorites.
Yay, finally got one! 8:30 am EST or so, logged in one of my camped alts and there she was! Only level 19, so no risk of her using the suicide ability, but green, and I have a stone all ready!
Been levelling her and my Quiraji Guardling at the same time.. we just need one more little lady with wings and I could have a Charlie's Angels team!
Yay! After years of sporadically fishing for him, and two hours of specifically intense fishing, I finally got Mr. Pinchy, and his second wish yielded up the magical crawdad box. So awesome. A cool pet and one step closer to the Salty title to boot.
Pretty sure we're looking at June 21, which is the traditional 'start' to summer, and the beginning of the fire festival.
I don't really get why some of you are so incensed! I guess it's the whole 'generation of instant gratification' thing. If all the pets were buyable, or easy to get, people would complain about /that/. Yeah, waiting is frustrating sometimes, but it's not like I don't think I'll still be playing WoW in two and a half weeks! Getting the rare pets is all the more satisfying, I think.
I'd been checking back off and on for several days (Madoran) and killing the sentries didn't seem to do anything, but this morning I battled the tainted rat in the area and one spawned. And it was a rare, yay! There are, unfortunately, usually several people hanging around there but today I got lucky.
Now if it would just rain on Jaguero Isle when there aren't fifty million people waiting on a baby ape..
I really wish this would stop spawning in the basement there in the Thundermar Ruins. You can't engage it there, because the space is either 'too uneven' or 'obstructed.' :(
