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.

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

Exactly what Emetai posted. 9pm-11pm PST


The event is located at Turtle Beach in Krasarang Wilds loc 72, 32. Be there a few minutes before the event starts or just a few minutes before it ends (2 hours in between from opening ceremonies to closing ceremonies).


They are lvl 23-25 so bring your lvl 25 pets. You will most likely only get one shot as this area is often populated with other collectors. Be sure your trio is full health & capture the turtle even if poor quality. 


The window to grab a turtle is very small & once the 3-5 that pop are gone that's it, there is no respawning til the next week. They will not appear as secondary battle pets.  Once the celebrants lay the lanterns they are carrying in the water, the turtles will appear. 

If you stick around you will get the achievement just for attending [Wanderers, Dreamers, and You]


Alliance faction can unlock a flight path just nearby *The Incursion* @ 67, 32


Good luck!

WoW Insider has an article on when the festival occurs.  There are actually TWO per Sunday; one at 9pm (runs to 9:23), another at 11pm (to 11:23).

Create a /tar wanderer's festival hatchling macro and bind a key to Interact with Target for fastest response. If you've got these ready to spam (I used keys 1 and 2), you can beat the guys clustered at the statue/water's edge to the nearest hatchling. There was a comment on wowhead: Blink and you'll miss it .. and it's true. Good luck everyone!

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.

These pets spawn only on a Sunday, between 9 and 11PM server time. They spawn right at the beginning of the festival (just after 9 PM), and I have been hanging around for a half hour now, and haven't seen another spawn yet. It's possible these are like the Shadeling, and only spawn in a single 'cluster' at once.


The festival is held on Turtle Beach, which is due east of The Incursion. You'll know you're there when you find the statue of Liu Lang.


EDITED: Because apparently I can't tell 'west' from 'east'

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.

Good info here in comments. Went to my festival at 11pm CST(US-Malfurion) for opening ceremonies and stayed off to the west side about half way up the shore and at about 11:01 and 30-45 seconds they spawned and not too many. I didn't get an exact count but saw at least 4 to 5 including the one that spawned at my feet. 2 others were hovering over me cause they saw me off to the side but I made a /tar macro and interact key and they had no chance.


Thanks for the great info Warcraftpetters!

Bear in mind that these spawn all over the beach where the festival is taking place, not just at the statue.   When I got mine last night, there was a big cluster of about twenty people at the statue.   I decided to camp a short distance away from them and one spawned right under me.  I was able to get into a battle with it seconds before about ten people from the main group came stampeding over.

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.

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 got mine today at about three mins after the festival started. Saw a paw and pounced!  Ended up capturing a poor quality one (thanks turnip) and all of the spawns were taken. Glad I saved that aquatic battle stone!  Leveled him up and I do have to say, he is a very good strong battle pet!

Not 100% sure, but I think this event starts at 06.00 now in EU +1 GMT (that's when time is 9PM PST.

So I got to do this before work....I hate you Blizzard....

I just got this and the festival started at 9pm as usual, despite changes on other realms since the patch. The Hatchlings spawned at 21:02 and were all gone by the time I finished my capture at 21:04.

Got him tonight at the opening ceremony of the festival. A few things:


First, everything I could find says this starts at 9pm realm time, but didn't actually start until 11pm realm time (Whisperwind--same as my local time, CST). I waited around for 2 hours, 15 minutes.


Also, don't camp the middle, around the statue, with the others. Find a cozy corner of the beach & hold down the sand. Your chances of getting this pet will drastically improve.


Happy hunting!

Went there first time, there were another 5 people hovering around. I stood close to the beach, close to the big turtle wandering on the left from the statue. People seem to concentrate on the central area, so I thought I will try the side. And it proved lucky as one green paw appeared 5 yards away from me. It was poor, but I am still happy :)

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?
