Finally, after an 8 hour straight camp and a 12 hour straight camp, i have one! The rain started at 3.55am and had finished at 4.06am. The apes despawned as soon as the rain finished. No rares, but im still very happy!

It rained for a split second @ 11:35AM on US-Stormreaver. I was able to snag a common Baby Ape on Jaguero Isle!

Finally got this guy last night. Once I nabbed an uncommon P/P, I decided I'd share the wealth and started a premade group. Sadly, once anyone joined my group, I got bumped to another server even though I was lead and the rain stopped. I ended up jerking the chain of a poor warrior that seemed just as excited. :(

Taken from Adriannah: "What I did is I logged in one evening and went AFk with the volume turned up high while I did chores around the house. When the rain starts it's pretty loud.... So... just turn your volume up and park there. If you want to browse the internet then go to System --> Sound and check "Sound in background" and you will still hear it if you are tabbed out..." My experience:

Fly to the island join a Premade Group - Find a group  - if it is raining on that realm when you join the group they will spawn and you can get a Baby Ape - dont leave group until you have your fill!!!

I caught 3 11:30 am EST finally but not one rare. I will stone the poor one as he has a better rating. Good Luck . I've been trying to get one for 3 years.

Logged in on Dalaran at 8:40AM and it was raining, took a moment for me to realise what it meant, as usually it's sunny.  When I did, I ran around the island and snagged an uncommon P/P and a poor B/B, the next I found was a rare B/B.  It was still raining, but they had started to disappear and by the time I reached the spot where I had seen one on my minimap, it too had disappeared. Extremely Happy with what I did get though.

About the issue where it rains but no baby ape shows up, you'll have to wait for a few... minutes (?), then a lot will show up!

It was raining on the isle, but there were no Baby Ape spawns and no one else on the isle. So I started killing every battle pet and critter that I could find on the isle.  After my third pass at least a dozen Baby Apes had spawned and I found a rare on a second battle.  I went through all of the spawns, killing all the poor and commons, and had a few more spawns before I noticed someone else was on the isle, so I left them to it.  It seemed to rain for a very long time this time.

I wish I could spend my holiday on that island. I've been camping my alt there for months and whenever I log in, which is quite often, it is sunny.

Just got mine on Zul'jin, glad I decided to check if it was raining =).  Poor (P/P) and an uncommon (B/B), nothing a stone can't fix =)


Yup don't give up, just leave a toon you care nothing of parked there and just pop in ever so often.  Took me 2 weeks before I logged in lucky for this cute babe.

I've had my alt parked on the island for weeks now, checking back every now and then for rain.  Today I decided to try what somebody else recommended and turn up the volume all the way and do some chores while I waited.  I was thrilled to hear rain from the other room and came rushing in to see little green paw prints all over my map.  First one was a poor, but I caught it for the achievement.  Saw 3 more uncommons and a ton of poors.  Kept an uncommon :) Happy hunting!

Just finished reading everyone's comments when I got to the location and thought I was in for a long long wait.  When suddenly it started Raining!  I caught 3 uncommons then it stopped!  Couldn't believe my luck - no rares to be found. I surrendered a ton of common and poor battles.  I'm a happy girl!

I was on the island, when it was raining. Zero Baby Apes. Was it the wrong kind of rain? :/


Update; I finally caught one! Turns out that the apes despawn before the rain actually ends.

Got mine this morning, a rare!  I put an alt on the island and decided to check at 6:00 AM and viola! It was raining and they were a lot of them.

I got my rare today, 5th or 6th session (maybe 20 battles attempts total). I parked an alt there after making the trip with my main a bunch of times and finding no rain. I did quit/kill fornon-rare if I didn't see any other players. Today, the 3rd time I checked, it was raining. My 5th attempt was a rare. 


My first capture was a poor. The next battle was uncommon, but came with a rare Long-tailed Mole - the first one I'd seen, so I killed the ape to take the rare. And it stopped raining during the fight!

Young apes quickly learn to hang from branches with their feet, leaving both hands free to fling objects at interlopers.
