Just an update, got my final wild rare today. Dropped by Jade and checked on the Adders...2 were up, one was rare! :)

So, all done with wilds, now just stones.

You've probably already looked it up and read all about that fight, but just in case...

The trick for me was standing literally inside his hit box like I was hugging him. As close as I could without being behind him. That way, when he did his "I will kill you now" ability (I forget the real name) I just had to take a couple quick steps through him to be outside of it. I don't know what class you are. If your main goal for Brawler's Guild is getting the pet (mine was), keep in mind that the invites are account wide so if you honestly can't beat Ixx with the character you've been trying on, it might be better to try on an alt than keep getting frustrated (maybe one with an execute-type ability if Oceanaia doesn't have one). But I sure do hope you beat him!

I can't seem to get motivated to do the Molten Front dailies. They were a drag when they were new and aren't any better now.

I hear you there! I really don't like the RNG factor of the bags for the Scorchling, and got so sick of it when it was current. I tried again quite a bit on multiple alts during the lull before MOP came out but had no luck then either. So when I finally saw one on the AH for 7k I snapped it up. Is it "worth" that much to Joe Schmoe, given that the Fel Flame has the same abilities? Probably not. But is the fact that I never have to do those dailies again worth that much to me? Definitely!!!

So keep an eye out for it since it is cageable.

Hello Contesa :D

Thank you for that wonderful post. Unfortunately, I did try that technique as well and as a Hunter, I can't take too many hits from that guy as he does do a considerable amount of damage. I think I have tried just about everything on both ICEY-VEINS and some other message boards I have found regarding that encounter. My other issue is Oceanaia is my only Lvl 90 and at this moment I have no intention of leveling up my alts (85-90 was just too brutal for me xD)

I had to take a small break from it due to the stress it was putting on me. I will eventually get it, it will just take some time, and luck!

Thank you again for that very positive post :D

In Brawler's Guild I am stuck at Blatt :( My main spec is heal (Resto Druid) so my gear is mostly heal spec (just 4 pure DPS pieces.) As a Moonkin I can't do enough instant DPS and my high DPS casts take too long and either get me killed because adds pile up or the enrage timer hits. I did get him down to single digit % once but no kill in time :(

I am also a hunter, and for that boss, I would use MD and Intimidation, and stay right under him. Even inside him. And when he casts that stuff just move away from the direction he is facing. Your pet should be able to keep aggro for the most part.


As far as my collection, I got my last needed wild caught rare. Coral Adder and Larva were NOT fun at all. I got a rare minfernal my 6th one. So not so terrible for me. The hardest for me was by far the Giraffe calf rare.

I've actually managed to bag every catchable pet (inc. Minifernal) with the exception of Scourged Whelpling in icecrown and Qurjai Guardian (which won't spawn until the summer) The only pet I had real trouble with wasn't a catch one it was the stitched pup from naxx - 6 blooming weeks of killing that dog (inc. killing on 3 alts) before it dropped. Now i'm just alt camping up at Icecrown near sindragra's roost hoping that little paw will pop up.

Crawling Claw is another one I'm waiting to see turn up in archy. so I'll be doing that on my main and checking icecrown on me alt I have parked there.

I am also inclined to believe that the Porcupette has been removed from the bag rewards. Can't seem to get it to drop. I do have a healthy stock of over 1.2k battle pet bandages now though...

As for people having trouble finding the rare stuff like Scourged Whelplings, Minfernals etc. Try making a DK on a non-crz server (I made one on EU-Shen'Dralar (sp)). I got all the rares there which are extinct on my own server (Harpy Youngling, Giraffe Calf, Minfernal, Scourged Whelpling etc). You just need 2 gold to get a lvl 1 to the argent camp in Northrend, the spawns start pretty close to the camp, outside mob range.

The Snowshoe Hare has been the bane of colleting for me. It's the last wild rare I need and so far I have spent over 6 hours battleing every single pet in the zone and no rare has come up. I stopped counting at 300 snowshoe hares that I have seen either as secondary or primary and am probably closer to 500 seen at this point.

The only wild pets I have stoned are the Minfernal, Scourged Whelpling and the Festivel Hatchling. Everything else I have hunted for and to speak of didn't have to farm for more than an hour or so to get a rare. I am really getting sick of Hillsbrad Foothills and can't wait to never have to go back there.

I have been playing since Vanilla, and I still don't have a Disgusting Oozeling. I've farmed and farmed and farmed for it until I was near tears and felt like a crazy old lady playing slots. I could just buy it off of the AH but on Arthas they run about 4k, and thats a bit pricey for my blood. Somday though, someday.

Well, I got my Crawling Claw the other day. Not via Archiology or anything, but via a trade. I traded away my Bananas to get my Crawling Claw.

I'll watch eBay and the BMAH for another Bananas. Honestly though, I didn't really like the pet model. Wasn't impressed him.

I guess you could say the pet I'm working on now that won't drop for me is a Rare Crow from Darkmoon Island. I've seen tons of Darkmoon Glowflys but no Crows

The Crawling Claw. Curse you, Blizzard! I can't tell you how much Arch I did the old school way, up and down Kalimdor. Now, with MoP I just run around out there and do the trade ins. Still no Crawling Claw though.
