Evil Crab of Doom

Postby Meistar » September 22nd, 2013, 10:32 am

It's my own fault that I'm on a low pop realm, but omgosh.. I've been farming the Spineclaw crabs for 3 days now.. I've had 18 of the rares spawn and NO pet drop. My bank alt has SO much Raw Crab meat that I could open a sushi joint and be supplied for years.

My husband got into an openraid flex group last night and before they started the raid he was over by the crabs and in a span of ten minutes 3 Monsterious Spineclaw's spawned... QQ..

*sobs and kills more crabs*

It will happen soon, I know, but for now I whine. Thanks for listening fellow pet collectors. :)

At least you are seeing the crab spawn. I've spent an hour a day ay least trying to get it to spawn and I haven't even seen it yet. Thankfully, I bought the pet for just 2K when someone put it on the AH and didn't know what they had.

Lucky, I haven't seen it on our AH at all, I've been trying to trade my Skunky Alemental for one but no takers.

Sigh.. back to farming.

Honestly, it's the only one I have ever seen on the AH on my server, which is why I think I got it for so little, no comparison price and someone not knowing what they had. Hell, that add-on that's announcing rares to world chat and their life percentage, I've only seen the crab mentioned once in almost 2 weeks, while I see the python and crane about 4-5 times an hour. Just drives me nuts, because besides collecting pets, I'm an achievement hunter, and that's the only rare spawn I have needed to kill for the achieve for over a week now.

Definitely one of the rarer rares. Not sure if it's just that people don't kill the crabs as much, but, yea. Over a week now and I've only seen the rare crab once.

I am very happy I managed to trade a spineclaw crab for some other pets. That rare is the one I have seen the least (besides the Giant, which took me a week to find and kill).

Overall, the rares are very, very stingy with drops for me. Got a few cranes from nests (doesn't really count), got 2 death adder hatchlings and 1 ashleaf spriteling. I have gotten the same amount of pets from my own faction's auction house and that was very surprising seeing how empty it usually is. The pets were also very underpriced so not complaining there.

These rares are pure evil concerning drops, that's for damn sure.

To be honest, I'm thinking I've already left it too late to get a shot at some of the rare pets. Several were listed on the AH in the first couple of days, but they have gone already, and the island is already much much quieter than it was in the first week. Doesn't help that I play on the under-represented faction on a medium population server, so the AH is often empty of anything decent. Damn my hesitation! ;)

I actually got lucky yesterday, I went to kill the Jadefire Spirit (which still hasn't dropped it's pet.. bleh) and someone announced the crab was up. I hauled tushy and just missed landing a hit, but luckily, a priest on my server just flat out traded it to me. I was sooooooooooo happy. I finished my Shao Hao rep today and bought her a Harmonious Porcky :)

Most of them are actually easier to get now than they were two weeks ago. All the rares that are on timers will be up more. The crab and the snakes are the two exceptions to that rule, unfortunately.

where are you farming crabs? I believe the area just north of the horde FP is the best spot, there are 6 or 7 crabs within spell range.

If you have this issue on any other pets, I'm on a high pop server, everything is on the ah. If you can make it a worthwile trade (aka trade other pets), I should be able to get you anything you need :p

Venun#2613, add me if you need something like this.

I love achievements, and your last sentence is why even if it appears on the AH I cannot buy any of the pets and be done... You're Going To Need A Bigger Bag for getting all of the special drops from pretty much every rare on the island - buying or being handed the caged pets does NOT count for the achievement (I'd been given a ruby droplet and skunky alemental, I did not get credit for the alemental until it dropped for me, still need the ruby droplet and many others).

This crab is my bane. I'm tabbed out waiting for them all to repop for the millionth time right now. Still able to count the number of times I've killed the rare one on one hand. Is this thing really that much more common on the populated realms?
