Tiny Bog Beast
What makes this pet unique for the pet battle system:
Humanoid/Elemental/Beast move pool.
Dragons in the pvp function of pet battle are annoying. Humanoid hit helps here and in PvE/PvP you get a stun very useful if you decide not to use the humanoid damage. Elemental damage is average and fairly consistant and is strong against those pesky mechanical pets due to its elemental moves and a Elemental race typing. Beast damage adds flexibility to this set for different situations.Also as an elemental it ignores weather effects so use this to an advantage against your enemies.
Major downfall for this pet in a team is lack of spike damage move early on and no heal factor, but the longer than average elemental dot and slightly larger health pool helps here with switch out and endurance teams.
This pet may seem rare but it really is easy once you know how to make it spawn. Tiny Bog Beast is significantly larger than the other critters in the area. Tiny Bog Beast is located by the lakes area west/northwest of Greenwardens grove around and near their larger cousins (not on them that's only flavor text).
- Step One: Kill the critters (battle and regular) in the area including the critters (battle and regular) on the border and a little ways into the Direforge Hill area and the border of the Ironforge Tomb area.
*Helpful tip right clicking will start a battle but left clicking allows you to use a character ability to kill capture creatures.*
- Step Two: fly/run around the area in a good pattern going from the lower end all the way to the top near the mountains edge.
- Step Three: spawn may take 5-20 mins depending on last kill and RNG spawning timers.
Reason you kill the critters, tiny bog beast shares spawn spots with the critters and ALSO slots for if it can spawn since the area has a maximum critter count. Thus you need to make sure it has places to spawn. Though it may not necessarily spawn right where you kill the critters. It will often spawn close to them within 5-15 yards of any critter point. That's why you must run the whole area.
(Killing critters in the second green belt area where the whelps are may help as well)
Other helpful hint. after a server restart/maintenance there will be 5-15 of these running around though once these are used up it goes back to the original 1-3 up at a time thing often only spawning the extras after you kill/defeat/capture one. Most I've seen up at once and not just respawn is 2.
This was my main post on Wowhead.com when the pet was first introduced. This has been the highest rated and most commented upon post for the Battle Pet itself.
