Stormreaver: (1700 Central Daylight Time, 15 Sept.) - Snowing
Area 52: It's been snowing for about 2 hours so far. This is my first time commenting; sorry for not thinking of doing so sooner.
To answer some questions:
1). Weather is random. The developers deliberately made the effects impossible to predict because they did not want players to be able to time weather. So don't tear your hair out trying to find the magic method. RNG pure and simple. :/
2). Snowflakes will sometimes only appear when you stop moving, almost as though you are "out-flying" the graphic. So definately check your minimap or the pet visuals to make sure!
You have to go at night between 11pm and 2am server time. The locations marked on the map are correct. I found so many down by K3, none rare but I have a stone.
Can anyone tell me how often does it snow in the Storm Peaks? I pass there every day but it never snows. The Arctic Fox Kit is the last pet I need to complete the "Safari of Northrend" achievement, so this little information would help me a lot!
PS: Do I have to wait for Christmas?
4:00 EST on Eonar. Snowing all over the zone. Kits are out everywhere. Just picked up 2 uncommons and I'm flying all over on the hunt for a rare. :)
My favourite wolf. Comes in P/S breed with 289 power and 289 speed. Use Dazzling Dance and you will be faster than both 341 speed Death Adders and 358 speed Rabbits. This will make you really chew them up quickly since they often are not very durable. Crouch is such a powerful move, makes you very durable. Howl can of course be useful, but in PvP opponents are not as static as the PvE opponents. Very good pet, also not very common. Use them!
Snowing now!!! 8.50 p.m. Melb time. 3/5/2014.
01.05.14, just found two arctic fox kits and it was NOT snowing in either place that I was. 2nd one was a rare thankfully. First one i found on the ice plane between Valkyrion and Frosthold, second one near K3.
Just happened upon a snow storm in the Peaks today. One thing someone said earlier that did not seem true was that it only snows in certain regions of the peaks. I found it snowing in both the hills and the plains. Managed to score two rares. While flying overhead I could not tell it was snowing. After I landed, I could see the snowfall and it was snowing hard. If your flying around looking for a snowfall you might not notice it, so look for spawned Arctic Fox Kits instead, they'll be plentiful.
Irony would be waiting for it to snow and having a certain proto-drake fly by.
It's snowing RIGHT NOW on Zangarmarsh Storm Peaks! I've got an Uncommon, but that's just the first try.
For all the snow accumulated in the Storm Peaks, why the hell is it never snowing!!!
Got this one today right by Bor's Breath. After hunting on and off for months, it was the first snow I'd seen there. There were a TON of fox kits everywhere, and after catching my first one (which was thankfully a rare) I flew around to see most of the zone was snowing. As everyone else said, if it's not snowing in one spot, just keep flying around since the snow is not zone wide and is random.
Also, I know it's perpetually snowing in Thunderfall, but they don't show up there.
I finally found this pet! after over 2 days of waiting for a darn snow...th snow is in small areas at a time not zone wide please remember this when youre hunting your fox..dont just stay in one spot!
Got very lucky with this one. Someone mentioned this pet, I took af to the Stormpeaks, fell right in a snowstorm, and caught three in a row. Tried to hunt for a rare, released my poor Fox Kit, en the fourth one was a rare!
I caught mine at 9 am this morning. When you use PetTracker, you can see the Fox kit spawn locations on the map, when it snows. When it stops snowing, the beast-icons disappear!
I find it Ironic that the snowdrift plains is covered with "Stormriders", yet it never snows here. What storm are they riding I ask you? WHAT STORM ARE THEY RIDING? THE STORM OF LIES?
Finally picked one of these up immediately following rolling restarts for all servers. Caelestrasz-US, Storm Peaks - The Summit. Grabbed the first one I spotted just for good measure, then found a rare 2 more Kits later.
