Gundrak Hatchling refuses to drop for me

Postby Ninni_mage » August 25th, 2016, 3:03 pm

I have spent hours upon hours trying to get this guy to drop for me. Did the drop % decrease? Am I missing something? I'm just repeatedly killing them and doing the loop around with no luck. They are avail to purchase on our AH but at 20k a pop I just can't afford it.

I long ago bought mine.

A friend did exactly 1000 kills before giving up.

http://www.warcraftpets.com/wow-pets/be ... hatchling/
lists numbers of kills from 50 to 5000 before seeing a drop, and many who never report getting it.

All of the World Drop pets are so sporadic it's hard to find accurate drop percentages for them. And then remember this is AVERAGE drop, so yeah, can get one on 1st try or you might finally get one 6,000 kills later. General rule of thumb is that it's at least 1 in a thousand for the Gundrak or the Azure Whelpling or Scarlet Macaw or Black Tabby or any of the others. And law of averages, just because you looted 1,000 kills totally doesn't mean you're guaranteed to get one of these.

AH prices used to be lot lower because lot of people who weren't into pets still questing the lower zones and got one as by-catch. Not too many of those today.

As you could be looking at hundreds of somewhat boring hours trying to farm one of these, think of all the other things you could be doing in much shorter time to earn enough G to pick one up off the AH.

They also used to drop from satchels in MoP. I think that's what really dipped the price for a bit.

I farmed every drop pet. Some dropped pretty quick, others took a few days. Except for the Gundrak Hatchling. Spent weeks and must have killed thousands but in the end, this was the one pet I had to buy...

He dropped for me after a couple hundred kills. However that damn Timeless Isle crab still gives me nightmares.
