Drop Rate Zandalari Raptors

Postby Decypher_ » March 6th, 2013, 10:04 pm

I found the drop rate extremely high, I killed around 45 Zandalari Dinomancers and ended up with 8 pets, just as I was getting prepared for a long grind.... Just FYI - and for anyone who was considering to buy them in the AH instead, it's hardly worth it. Highest drop rate pets ever :lol:

I agree, I'm just trying to figure out the ore/herb/raptor ratio. Especially with the still abundant ores and herbs in Pandaria.

It looks like they're all available in four different breeds. Depending on how hard a particular breed is to farm, it might be worth more to someone.

The breeds aren't displaying properly for me in game. For those browsing the AH for P/P breed raptors, at level 1 you want the ones with 14 Power.

I farmed the trolls on the beach for about an hour and got 11 pets. Good thing I tried farming first before buying off AH. Saved gold for pets I can't farm so easily like Firefly :D

one thing i have noticed and this was with raiding with leashes, is that the first week to two weeks of the patch pets where dropping really fast. in the raiding with leashes achievement, me and my friend had all but 2 pets the first week, then the second week we got a few more including the ones we were missing. yet now i go back into the old raids and i might get 1 or 2 for the week. im kind of wondering if its the same thing right now

Yea, the drop rate is stupid high. Just farming bones I acquired 15. I predict they'll soon be less than 100 gold on the AH.

As I hunter I've also had 3 of the taming books drop for me as well. I just with the Dino had a better ability than spell reflect.

I went to the Isle of Giants for the first time yesterday. It was over-camped... I swear, I think there was more players than mob spawns...

Later, I found that the 4 pets were cheap on AH so I saved myself the trouble of getting them the hard way. I will return to get bones later when all the craze will have passed.

Took me 20 kills to get 3 of them. 4th was gifted to me, but everything I've seen and heard indicates a high drop rate.

I had the most difficult time with the toenibbler, but I have, I think, 11 extras, across the other three types. I'm not sure why they made them quite so common. Takes fun as well as value out of it, imo. I, too, will be curious to see if they nerf the drop rate.

Agreed, drops rate need to be nerfed. I farmed for an hour and ended up with 20. I gave them out as gifts to my guildies for downing the first boss of ToT. :)

I already wondered why there were so many of them in the AH. Price is still over 500g though so I may start farming them before they nerf it.

I was going to wait until they dropped low enough but I really want the tome of dinomancy, so I might as well get myself a set.

I farmed ..well. less than 50 for the book for my hunter..
In that time I got 4 drops.. I bought 2 off the AH since they were less than 200g..
Given I "could" have been lucky from the RNG, but that is not usually the case..

Now.. if only I get in on some rare kills on Thunder for those pets!! ;)

I bet Blizzard will nerf the drop rate once they see how common the pets have become. I got all 4 from the AH (yes, very affordable!) to save the time of trying to farm (especially since my i446 level 90 needs guildie help for those 91 elite mobs!). I wanted to get them in my collection before Blizzard pulls the rug out from under us.

I was thinking that too, but then realized they have multiple breeds. I believe rare dropped pets of the past were geared toward collecting and when pet battles were added they were given a single breed. They may intend these to be more geared toward battles. The higher drop rate may be so people can farm for the right breed. In other word it's not just about having them but having the one that meets your battle needs.

They are so cheap on my AH that I bought several of each, some to keep and some to level and sell.
Seems the mech pet is dropping like crazy too, as they are cheap on the AH also.
RL friend of mine gave me one of them, since he had gotten 4 already.
