Thundering Serpent Hatchling may become much scarcer

Postby Luciandk » February 13th, 2014, 2:23 pm

Just saw the news. Blizzard is going to retire the current crop of Challenge modes and their rewards prior to WoD.
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/129302 ... -2-13-2014

So since the Thundering Serpent Hatchling is unlocked from doing MoP challenge modes it appears that come WoD, no new guilds may be able to unlock this pandaria pet for purchase. Meaning those whom have it can charge a big premium to allow petophiles to snag one.

Id expect the new challenge modes to have their own special pet reward.

Certainly not too late to roll a toon in a guild that does have it. List of some guilds that are offering the pet: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4139

Also I would imagine it would still be available even after WoD hits, from any guild that had unlocked the achievement in time.

Try not to worry about it. I've been watching the folks who joined my guild just to get the pet, and so far it looks like they can get it by the time they hit level 38-40 if they start with a level 1 alt. I'm not sure how long it's taken the ones who started by leveling a DK, but either way the rep grind goes pretty quickly.

Then again, knowing that Challenge modes are going away may motivate your guild to get them done. If not, my guild or the others listed in the link above would be glad to welcome your alt. You can definitely get the pet without too much of a struggle.

I was able to buy it at level 23. I've leveled with the tabard and hairlooms. Took me 6 hours of questing. This was my first horde char, you can probably reduce that by an hours if you know the quests and your way around Orgrimmar... Playing a warlock helped for the free mount.

It me about the same about level and time leveling as you,also my first horde toon and getting to know cities did take some time.
If have tabard pretty easy to do.
Just sell extra pets for money for tabard and one is good to go.
Tabard 250 gold I believe

IIRC I was able to get my Thundering Serpent Hatch. at around level 18 or 19, no tabard, just by questing heavily (I know it was before 20 because I wasn't able to use a mount yet.) So it really is pretty easy once you find a guild that's willing to host pet collectors. Just sell a pet or two on whatever server the hosting guild is on to pay for the purchase cost.

No need for rep grind.

If you join with a lvl 90 char and you already exalted with your previous guild i think the rep with the new guild you join is rewered, so you dont really need to do anything just buy the pet and leave.

Thants how i did it, i didnt need to lvl anything just joined a guild bought the pet and left.

I just wanted to add that neither my guild nor (I believe) any of the other guilds listed on this site charge anyone to join in order to get the pet. We're doing it just to be kind, as shocking as that may seem =P

The guilds offering it on this forum are doing it as a favor to other pet collectors. However I imagine there's probably a lot of casual collectors who don't know about that and might be tempted to pay for it if they see a guild on their server offering it as a service (I haven't seen it, but who knows). I know the matching mount was being sold on a number of servers and I have to admit I was tempted to just pay up for one, but luckily a friend is letting me leech it off his guild.
