Sandstorm when I logged onto Doomhammer around 21:00 Pacific time. I went to the Gaping Chasm instead for the first time, and the first one I battled was my rare. Change is good.

Feels like a pretty weak pet. Also Sandstorm, while it fits the theme of the silithid and how it is captured, does not really work well with the other abilites of the pet. The Hatchling also is a bit too slow for Survival to be worth it. Don't chose Devour and Swarm, you will be locked for alot of turns. All in all not really a good battle pet, amongst the bottom.

I sandstorm is currently up on Blackhand-EU (12.53 German server). Can't say when it started though.

Friend messaged me - sandstorm going on around 9:20am Lightbringer server. I got there in time to capture a green balance and a white guardian before the storm stopped. No idea how long it had been going on. But I was there about 10 mins. Good luck.

Got Silithid Hatchling just before server shutdown for maintenance, 7 minutes before! I  happened to be crossing from Un'Goro to Tanaris and was at that spawn area. It did not appear to be a sandstorm, but as I looked down, I saw paws, and sure enough, Silithid Hatchlings! I've always looked just after a restart, never found a sandstorm, so wanted to let you all know - check just before server shutdown, too. Best of luck!

Just logged in to a sandstorm on KT. As someone else mentioned, I was able to get blue versions of the sea gull and gold beetle, as well as an H/P and P/P version of the hatchling. Not bad.

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.

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!

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.

These hatchlings entertain themselves by clacking their mandibles together in increasingly complex rhythms.
