I've been running around the farms north of half-hill so I'll have to give near Nitun a shot and see how that goes. I have found that, at least for half-hill, a feline familiar is superior to any of the raptors; she has devour, stone skin to become immune to poison and stampede and with her basic attack as pounce you get extra damage against the many low quality pets you're battling that are slower. Generally with the raptors I keep 2 on the team with 1 leveling pet since they die on me every once in a while and I'm healing them every 10-20 minutes as they just get low, I used the feline familiar for 4 hours straight and only had to pet mend it once =)
I also found Plains Monitor in kun-lai is a realy good pet to grab if you need a pet to use to level your raptor/feline familiar to 25 (vs criters) in the first place. Ravage being 3 rounds vs 2 for devour is also sometimes nice if you run into a pet with survival that's faster than you.
