Raining on Feathermoon, just started. 5:23 EST. YAY!!!

update: 5:42 and the rain just ended. Glad I still had that character on that server from way way way back. Just decided to log her in and park her on the isle to check for rain once in a while and just as I did I saw the first drop of rain.

Seems like a pretty quiet server. I made an announcement but no one showed up. Just little ole me on the isle. So I managed to get 2 rare B/B's and an uncommon P/P which I will gladly stone.

Some suggestions I would make are to either park an alt on the island and periodically log on it to check, or if you do fly there ask people on your realID/btag to invite you to their server to check. I found that checking the island a couple times a week at various times lead to a capture, but the realID/btag would be a better option imo.

Midnight, Cenarius. Raining just as the clock ticked over. Couldn't find a blue, though I did manage two greens.

Went down to check if it was raining on the island, and it was!!

I managed to get a common quality before the rain stopped.

I've still yet to get one, however I thought I'd share an observation regarding the rain.


If it's raining on the mainland that doesn't mean there's rain on the island. So I would guess the opposite to be true as well. So be sure to check the island, even if the beach is sunny and bright.


I feel that's a useful bit of information - especially since I had hoped it was like Tanaris sandstorms which supposedly cover the entire zone at once.

Just caught a couple on Bleeding Hollow, rain ended @ 3:53 AM Server Time.  They all like to hang around the perimeter of the island, though around 3-4 may be found within the interior.  Very hard to miss.

I parked my self on the island and left for a couple of hours. When I came back in was raining and I was surrounded by baby ape. I had to fight about four of them and then I got a rare. So for me in was easy to get, but it may have just beeluck.

Just decided to pop down to the island on a whim to see if it was raining; I arrived and it wasn't, but almost immediately the game changed phases and the rain started. With nobody else there I managed to snag a rare B/B within 3 tries; kept checking and forfeiting and after another dozen or so, I got a rare P/P breed as well - and the rain stopped seconds after I captured it ;)


If only the Unborn Valkyr was as cooperative about showing up when I come past!

Got mine at approx 3:30pm on WRA server. It was raining when I logged in so I'm not sure how long it was going, but it lasted for 45 minutes while I was there. I managed to nab a rare and a couple uncommons.


One weird thing to note -- after about 15-20 minutes, all the baby apes disappeared, but it was still raining. I thought they were gone for good and was about to leave when a whole new batch spawned. So, if you get to the island and it's raining, but don't see any pets, wait a few. :)

Got my rare at 1:39 pm server time on Hydraxis. It was the very end of the storm, when I ended the battle. The storm lasted at least ten minutes, and the Baby Apes did respawn at least once.

I spent a couple of days coming back everytime I finished a task (some archaeology, pet tamers etc) and felt like it was going to take me forever to find this. Just decided to sit on the island for 50 minutes again while waiting for reset and at 2:57am server time on Wyrmrest Accord it started raining!! Got a rare on my second try, very lucky and happy :D

Was going to give up. I went out to pick up my kid from school, figured i'd hop on a sec and check (had a guy camping jaguero). I caught 3, 2 uncommons and a common @ 5:06 server on bleeding hollow us. The rain ended reallllly fast btw.

Greatdane's method worked fantastic. Easiest camp I have ever done. The only problem I had was Mother Nature giving me the most epic of trolling, do this on a sunny day outside. Rain storm lasted atleast 20 minutes before I hearthed.

After camping in STV for the past week (popping on every now and again!) I got lucky and it finally rained and I got a Baby Ape! They spawned today on Stormscale EU at 8:10pm server time.. happy hunting guys!

SPAWNED on EU realm (die Aldor) on saturday (28.09) at 1:32-1:36PM. Maybe some informations for spawning times on EU realms will finally help some people who had the same problem as I did. Finding only US timestamps on the internet was frustrating.

Several baby apes (~12), all poor quality, only one with a better breed ID.

They all disappeared after the rain stopped.

Made a DK yesterday (on a Brazil server) to catch a minfernal. After I caught him, I decided to park the character on the Isle to log on randomly to try for Baby Ape (since ive yet to see it rain on my main in weeks of looking) and as soon as I got my character there, it was raining.  Just dont give up and keep looking, but try not to go crazy!  Baby Ape is so cute he's worth it!  GOOD LUCK! :D

I decided I wanted one of these yesterday, so I parked my Paladin on the Isle, and fought Strand Crabs with 1 lvl 14, 1 lvl 6, and 1 lvl 1 to level the little guys. After doing this for several hours and leveling a good number of pets, it started to rain. I snagged a poor quality, next one was uncommon...then I started searching for my rare. After fighting or killing 4 or 5 of these guys, I captured my rare last night at roughly 2245 server, on Kul Tiras.

Had about 4 toons camped across different servers, and thankfully to my daily fiber, I went afk to relieve myself and stayed logged in. Sure enough literally as soon as I got back to sit down and log out, it started to rain. Started around 5:10 PM server time on Blackrock, lasted roughly 17 minutes. Long enough for me and another collector nearby to both nab a rare spawn.

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