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?
After about a week of camping, I finally see snow! 8 am server time(11 my time), caught mine around K3. Snow is indeed zonewide, there are foxes spawning everywhere. I have not had an issue with quest phasing and this toon only completed a handful in Storm Peaks. Helped 2 guildies get to current crz area, we all managed to catch a rare on the 2nd try each. Snow lasted 1hr, foxes spawned throughout the entire duration.
For all the snow accumulated in the Storm Peaks, why the hell is it never snowing!!!
I'm starting to think global warming has affected Storm Peaks. Been checking every 15 minutes since I got up...no snow. :(
Irony would be waiting for it to snow and having a certain proto-drake fly by.
Seems after the reset this pet is spawned all over the place regardless of snow or not, after batteling a fue thy dont seem to respawn so if u are missin this one, get em befor there gone.
The snow is not seen unless you are on the ground. I did a flyby, and saw the green paw for the Kit before I saw the snow. The Kits will respawn until the snow is finished. My last Kit that I ran after vanaished right as the snow stopped. I didn't get to it in time. My sugestion is to take an area and circle that area, don't try to fly all of Storm Peaks area - you waste too much time. They do spawn quite fast. Foud it at 6:29AM, snow stopped at 6:55AM.
Is there a schedule of when it snows in Storm Peaks? I have been camped out for days just farming stuff while I hunt for this Fox ... and it has never, ever snowed. Why is this place covered with snow but it never snows?
This place kinda sucks. I saw NOTHING at all. Not one critter, beast, etc. Got all the other pets in Northrend. One last ditch effort before I stopped bothering, it was FINALLY snowing. Fox kits all over, heavily farmed. I was able to secure 3 - 2 poor quality around K3 and 1 common quality around the Engine of the Makers (big hole in the ground).
update: 1 more poor quality @ snowdrift plains.
Storm peaks, Snow storm, 6:50pm Sisters of Elune realm time. Rare at Snowdrift Plains (24.6, 39.6). Happy hunting =)
Right-o, it doesn't need to be snowing. Found many of them wandering about in a few places after server reset yesterday. Whelpling so just decided to just fly by and "see if it was snowing". It wasn't but there were several kits in more than one of the spawn areas. They even seemed to be re-spawning! I only got common, but I know at least one person got an uncommon. We were spotting for each other in that.
Anyone else notice pet collectors seem far more courteous than folks like your average herb-and gankers? Lol
Just got mine south of Terrace of the Makers on a hill at 6:48am realm time. Was poor quality and appeared with a mountain skunk and a spider. No snow that I could see, though my graphics are low. Saw no other spawns.
It's snowing in storm peaks now 10:33pm est 12/16/12 just got my Fox Kit in plain of echoes by camp Tanka'lo. Hope this is helpful to someone. Happy hunting!!!! :-)
Got my rare one in the middle of Snowdrift Plains around 8:11 st. Saw at least 5-6 foxes around here. Temple of Life is another good spot as well as south of Valkyrion around ice lakes - about 4-5 at a time
Caught the snow and picked him up today. Got an uncommon, which is fine for me right now given how many others are looking two. Seem to be lots of them around K3, but they're also available elsewhere, just not quite as many to be found--at least that's my observation. About 12:15pm on Whisperwind. Happy hunting!
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.
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!
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.
