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!

I spent last 2 days getting toons from 5 servers down to the isle.  This morning the first toon I log onto, I take a look around and all of a sudden it starts raining! Took me a second to realize oh wait it's actually raining.  Did a couple circuits of the isle before the Baby Apes started spawning.  First Baby Ape was an uncommon. So happy! There were two or three others farming so I was only able to battle about four more. Found one more uncommon, one common and two poors.

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!

Been sitting on the island from 8:15am -9:30am server, no other players in sight. But it has been raining the whole time i have been here and yet no spawns. Even tried killing the other battle pets to see if it spawned but no luck. This is the last pet i need for my Eastern Kingdoms Safari. Looks like it will be a long journey.

I check once a day to see if it's raining while I do my rounds with the pet tamers. Today I was very happy to see it was raining on the island. No baby apes however. I figured someone had already picked them clean and sat and waited hoping for a respawn. 40 minutes later, still nothing.

After months of checking, I finally hit it when it's raining and there are no apes!

Am I missing something? Do I have to dress like a banana for them to spawn?

After camping on an alt for a month I finally got an uncommon.  I hoped to try for a rare, but there were three level 90s running around and killing all the baby apes just for 'fun'.  I was lucky I was close to one that spawned and it was a green.

Got mine late yesterday. I did not get a rare though. I've been hanging out on that island for a while now randomly checking in on it for it to rain. While i was leveling some low level pets it started. I killed a bunch but no rares would show. I did get my Destruction Breed in a common and I do pandarian pet dailies all the time. I'll have a battle stone for it reletively soon.

FINALLY!!!! After running around that island with 2 alts, leveling FIVE levels between them doing pet battles while I waited for it to rain, it finally did!! The first two were poor but the third was a rare, and the breed I wanted!! I am so pumped right now!

Had an alt parked on the island for the past week.  I checked a few times a day.  Finally had luck today.  Got a rare on my 4th try, and the rain stopped while I was still in battle!

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