This wild pet can be found on Turtle Beach in Krasarang Wilds. It only spawns during the Wanderer's Festival.

The festival is held only on Sunday night from 9 PM to 11 PM (Pacific Standard Time, GMT-8). During the festival, floating lanterns appear on the surface of the water and Pandaren NPCs wander onto the beach to set up bonfires and shoot off fireworks. Shortly after, the Wanderer's Festival Hatchlings appear.

Those are around area 72,31 ish. 

Close to  "The Incursion"  on the map.

A bit hard to get if you are on a high pop server.



Note: if you have done the pvp quest (altest as horde, dunno about ally) you will find it harder to look for the hatchlings around area 80,25 couse the pvp area will be zooned.

I am not sure how many people are typically around on other servers but on Bloodhoof there were a half dozen people waiting for this event. I am told we are a low population server so if you are on bloodhoof to join  the guild Revolution to get your Thundering Serpent Hatchling before it is discontinued, then definately check out this event on Sunday night. Oh and it was held at 9pm PDT = 12 am EDT , there seems to be a lot of conflicting information about the time.

Stayed up till 2 am to get one, as soon as the event started I grabbed the first I saw which thankfully was an uncommon, soon as I captured it the server went down! Thankfully I got it.

I stayed up until midnight to try to get one of these.  I clicked on one that was poor and let it go.  I should not have done that because I never saw another one!


I was standing by the water's edge.  Where do they usually spawn?  I was surprised to see a ton of people there, but with the long weekend, I imagine everyone had the same idea as I did - that we didn't have to get up as early Monday!  I can't believe they would all have been snapped up so fast.  :(

Play on Winterhoof; went to Festival before 11pm pst. Spoke with Festival Herald who stated it would begin upon the hour, which was 11pm. After all the party goers arrived the "Wanderer's Festival Hatchling" spawned, quite a few actually. I was lucky and got a blue on first try.

It's important to remember this Festival only lasts about 24min. So it was over right as I got there.

This is the turtle that packs the biggest punch. Pump will boost your Grasp and will allow for a huge hit when released. A slightly different heal than the other turtles. Cleansing Rain could be interesting when paired with other pets with aquatic attacks, and it also boosts Grasp, but then you will trade away your biggest hitter. This sees like the most useful turtle to me, but it is tougher to get and then you might get a crappy breed. 244 speed and power is really bad.

You can find the festival around 72.30 where the huge statue is. Right next to the Incursion flight path. I am absolutely certain it is at 9pm pst. Tested it out on 2 seperate servers with different server times. Turtles spawned a couple of minutes past 9 pst.

Huge bout of luck for me tonight, they spawned and the first one I went after was a rare.

showed up at 9:15pm ST. no one else was there (server was Akama). there were five pets spawned. I checked all of them - one uncommon, one common, three poors. I captured the uncommon - lucked out and got an aquatic battle stone too! 

side note: the area marked on the map on this site is wrong (for me at least) the pin is farther north than it should be. The pets are located at the Incursion area. Big turtle statue, lots of turtles.

Was a little confusing reading all the conflicting posts on Wowhead about  exactly what time Sunday night the Festival takes place.  As of January 2014, it happens on U.S. realms at 9pm Pacific Time.  Got my hatchling last night a little after midnight server time.  Were only a couple other pet collectors there so seems like competition is lightening up.

the festival starts at 9:01 PST on all servers now. Also it takes a few minutes for the turtles to spawn, wondering what best breed to stone is?

I guess the demand for this pet has diminished on some servers, was on Ravencrest/Alliance tonight, at 11 CST, festival started, one other player was waiting besides myself. Captured a green right away, checked 5 left over and no rares, left about 15 minutes after festival started and no one else showed up. Stone the one I got and now I have my rare. (Not sure why my comment was downgraded, sorry if you're having trouble capturing one of these turtles.)

I can confirm a few things now.

Wanderer's Festival started tonight (1 Dec 2013) at 9PM SERVER time on the oceanic server Nagrand. (definitely NOT PST). The Festival "opening ceremony" took about 3 or 4 minutes before the Achieve was granted and then the WF Hatchlings began to spawn. I trapped two and killed one. I believe a couple of other players also battled one or two. It does seem that they DO NOT respawn. The Festival also despawns after about 20 minutes.

The Wowhead TomTom co-ords mapped are wrong - try 72,31.

The closing ceremony tonight was exactly the same at 11PM SERVER time.

PS. the fights are easy with a moth/seagull/turnip combo.

They currently spawn at 23.00 CET Sunday night on EU servers, the festival ends 20 minutes later, if you are there when it starts or finishes you get an achievement - Wanderers, Dreamers, and You.  To help you prepare your team in advance it might help to know after three battles on two servers I found the secondary pets were a combination of aquatic, flying and critter.  I used Stunted Yeti, Oily Slimeling and Yellow Moth.

I arrived at 9pm Pacific tonight only to have the NPC tell me it was still an hour off.  The event went off at 10pm Pacific (going on right now), so I'm thinking that going back to standard time has the event going off an hour later than it otherwise would.

I went at 9pm and there was 6 of us. I got a Poor B/B. 

As others mentioned, lanturns came out at 9, then a minute later the NPC's, then a minute later the Achievement and followed by the pets. Then at 9:23 they left, got the achievement on another toon, pets do not spawn. Only on the Opening (9pm and 11pm) came back at 11 and I was the only one! Got me a Green H/S and a grey H/H. Will upgrade the H/H if I get an aquatic stone. Or try and find a blue next time, whichever comes first.

A few notes about this pet:

- Unlike a few other rare/event spawns that appear alone, these guys are accompanied by 2 other random adds, so be sure to have a decent team on hand.

- The event started about 1 minute after 9pm PST, so don't sweat it if lanterns don't appear in the water exactly at the start time. 

- I've read that a second batch of adds spawn at the events closing, this is not true. I've waited an additional 20min after the event ended and I have never seen another one spawn. 

- And as always, if you have alts on multiple servers, camp out as many servers as you can. I've found several low to medium population PvP servers that have little to no pet competition.



After only 2 weeks I got very lucky and caught a rare quality H/H breed on Cho'gall at the same time that my bf caught a rare quality B/B breed on Alexstrasza. I was hoping for H/S, but I'm more than happy with my little turtle tank :D

Legend has it that a seadragon turtle just like this one grew up to become Shen-zin Su, the Wandering Isle. Perhaps your little turtle will grow into something amazing?
