This one takes time and patience! While levelling fishing to wait, I picked up the quest 'Un-Chartered' and sat fishing in the pond in the ogre camp wearing my ogre disguise just a stones throw from the western hive (prevented getting ganked all the time). After levelling fishing up to 600, having watched several movies in the background and after about 80+ hours hanging around in Tanaris, eventually a sandstorm picked up, lasting for about 2-3 hrs. Long enough for me catch a rare of each breed.
Sandstorm just started on Bronzebeard, EU server...
Was parking toons on several servers and went to Proudmoore tonight.....flew right into a sandstorm...Oh yeah!!
Since I was looking for the information and found it else-where I thought I would share...
Sandstorms are across the ENTIRE ZONE of Tanaris. So if you are camping you dont need to fly between the spawn locations... Hope this helps someone :)
Also got mine on Thrall today. Had left an alt there and was logging in on him periodically to check. Was doing that for about 3 days, and today when I logged in there was a sandstorm going. Tons of them were crawling about. Managed 2 rares and a rare Sand Kitten. The sandstorm stayed up forever (I got tired and logged before it ended) and there were plenty of spawns and respawns.
Picked mine up at the Gaping Chasm on Thrall at 12:20 p.m. Central. First one was an Uncommon. Then went around and found a rare. Also picked up a rare Stinkbug and Gold Beetle as seconds.
Started camping at The Gaping Chasm in Tanaris at 9:16 am (server time - Korialstrasz), turned up the Ambience hoping there would be some sort of sound difference when the sand storm hit. There wasn't much but still enough for me to notice a slight change while I was away from the computer. The sand storm started 12:13 pm (server time). Got my rare on the third battle. Plenty of spawns. I LOVE this little guy! Just too cute.
Good Luck, everyone! :D
Logged on and flew my alt hunter to Tanaris this morning. Arrived at 8:45 and leveled pets until 9:00 am (Icecrown) and was able to easily get a green then a blue on first two attempts. Plenty of spawns, no crowds. Tips were great!
Cought one at last on Hellfire-EU @12:13 pm GMT when I logged in on my alt toon which I parked in the right area. And on my first go got a uncommon :D
Rare caught 9:00 pm server time at the designated map locations.
Thunderhorn Server: 7:30 AM PDT - Sandstorm in Tanaris. Scored Rare Silithid Hatchling, Rare Sand Kitten, Rare Sea Gull. (what the heck are seagulls doing in the desert??)
Just got to Tanaris and found myself in a sandstorm, I started at the gaping chasm, caught the first uncommon one I saw, forfeited everything else. Didn't find a rare so I made my way to the noxious lair, clicked the first one I saw and while forfeiting, the sandstorm stopped so it lasted about 15min. No rare for me this time.
Sandstorm started up about 8:30am on Sunday morning - WRA. I seemed to be the only one awake and hunting this morning and managed to find a rare after checking approximately 20 of them between the two silithid areas. He's so cute!! Good luck :)
I just got this guy at 8:15 pm EST on Kirin Tor realm. Lots of them everywhere, and I was lucky enough to get an uncommon too :)
Sandstorms covers all of Tanaris when they happen but this guy only spawns in Noxious Lair & The Gaping Chasm it doesn't help much but Sandstorm Zul'Jin at o8:45 on 3 may 2013 lasted about 10min.////update another storm today this one around 3:30 lasted around an hr
Finaly got it today, had a alt there and as soon i log in there was a sandstorm and i got my rare at 1 try and there where allot others but i was happy i had it. happy hunting all. only 1 to go :)
Finally, my parked alt awoke to sand blowing in his face. Found a rare after about half an hour of desperate hunting. As this lower level alt had no bandages, to avoid the 10% health penalty for fleeing, I'd use my Azure Whelplings 'Surge of Power' to kill the secondary pet in one hit so I could get back to hunting that rare down asap.
Found a rare 7:53pm server time, found the rare in the southern silithid lair. There were a bunch of uncommons in the nest to the north and west. Hope this helps someone
been checking for sandstorm for almost a week now on 2 characters parked on two servers a few times daily. nada. woke up this morning checked and viola. sand in the air. battled total of maybe 6 silithids, best i caught was a uncommon. then the sand stopped!! glad i had that 15 minute window where i was able to grab a few.
he was my second last one. just waiting for Qiraji Guarding (in 10 days hopefully) for zookeeper achv.
Caught an uncommon spawn at 6am realm time after finding nothing but poor spawns. I then battled another poor with a rare Desert Spider and got the Flawless Beast Battle-Stone from it! Not bad, means I can make it rare myself :D
