Try using this in the lead while lvl pets outside Horde garrison. Maybe not the ideal choice for Icespine "beast" but its actually as effective as my mechs are. Get 3 cuz as noted in last comment, easy to get rare as 2nd's in Tannan pet battles. Rotate them out each battle to avoid the 4 minute healing time or costly bandaids. Do Shell Armor>Rip>Blood in the Water. Often enough to kill the Icespine. Then I often do one more rip on the next enme pet to aid the incoming leveling pets.
In hundreds of pet battles in Tanaan, I have never seen a non-rare Fen Crab as a primary or secondary. Sometimes this is a bit of a pain when they are backing up the legendaries, but not insurmountable. However, when they're ALL rare, it makes the aquisition of a rare seem kinda lackluster.
Seems to be a lot of b/s here. I just found 4/4 blue primaries at Scuttler's Coast
I have to agree on the all-rare issue. Doing the Bleeding Hollow Campaign, I ran into at least a score of them and every one was rare (not that I am complaining too much, capturing rares is fine, IMHO). The often show up as secondaries to Cerulean Moths (with another flyer). I tend to go with Nether Faerie Dragon as my lead and rarely have to switch to another during the entire fight.
Often seen as a backup to the Legendary pets... simple to get one there... Use Howl Bomb and EPW...
Third battle in tannan jungle and captured a rare P/P tertiary off of a Bloodbeak north of Vol'Mar.
I captured a rare P/P as secondary of a Tree Python
They seem to be all rare?!?!
I caught a rare H/H that was a secondary in my first Tanaan legendary battle against Direflame! Looking for a P/P now.
Was I having a string of unusual luck, or are ALL the Fen Crabs on the southern shore always Rare? I even had, for the first time ever seeing it, three Rares in one wild battle.
That being said, they aren't a hard fight; even the Tainted Maulclaw on the same beach can nearly be taken out solo by Ikky (thanks, HazelNuttyGames).
