This is one of several raptor companions introduced in patch 3.2. Upon its initial release, this pet dropped from Dart, a rare spawn who circles through northern Dustwallow Marsh roughly every 5-8 hours.

As of patch 3.3, the Darting Hatchling became a lootable item from Dart's Nest.

This pet will occasionally run around in a random pattern leaving a trail of dust behind.

3.3 Patch notes

Hatchlings: Leaping, Darting, Razormaw, and Ravasaur Hatchlings no longer drop from their associated rare creatures. Instead, there are now rare nests that spawn which contain these hatchlings. For example, the Leaping Hatchling can now be found in Takk’s Nest rather than as a drop from Takk the Leaper.

This little hatchling is probably my favorite of all the raptors, with the Ravasaur hatchling coming in a close second.

Since Dart is such a quick devil, I used the macro:

/target Dart
/cast Curse of Exhaustion

Not only is CoE my spell with the furthest distance, but it's instant and slows Dart down significantly, while also aggroing him. This is definitely not necessary, but to any 'locks out there, this is a nice little macro to use. I'm sure other classes could do something similar. ^_^

I got mine at: 46.6, 17.1. Took me less than 1 minute to find it after using this macro:

/way 48.0 14.2

 

/way 49.2 17.5

 

/way 47.9 19.0

 

/way 46.6 17.1

 

Just make it a macro, it's the locations for the 4 nests. Once you reach the location try to see if there is a nest close, if not, move to the next waypoint. If none of them bear results, wait awhile and try again.

I've now farmed this little mini-pet 3 times so far, each time with very minimal camping time. A couple tricks:

On my server, it's a fairly active raiding server, that means a vast majority of the server population is in raiding instances from 6pm - 10pm server. That makes it an ideal time period to farm this and other rare spawn mobs.

Either that, or you could always just burn the midnight oil one night, and snag it at 2am during one of your insomnia sessions... but I wouldn't know *inno*

Found mine tonight at 46.6 - 17.2

 

Couldn't have been easier!  :)

 

A really good tip is to look for a kneeling human named "Stinky" Ignatz.  The nest is under a tree right behind him.   Happy hunting!

Saw it on the AH, found that I didn't have it. Checked out its location on this guide. Thanks for the accurate co ordinates. Flew straight to it and there was the nest. Money well saved and potential to make money on the AH!!

Took me about an hour and a half roaming and trying coords listed below, they didn't work for me.  Found him at 48.03, 14.21 after the nest finally appeared. Yay! Was about 11:30am server time on Echo Isles.

Literally was just reading how to get the hatchling and I flew around for just one minute and found the nest next to a tree. Guess I was lucky! It was around 1:00 PM server time.

I just snagged mine while I was flying through Dustwallow to do some Archeology leveling on my DK.  I stopped off in the area, and after about 20 seconds, I saw Dart run past.  I checked a couple nests and found his on the third one.  Now back to Un'Goro to try for the Ravasaur...

Used Tom Tom and the four way points that Orlendis shared. Worked perfectly my first time there, found the nest on the 2nd way point. Thank you so much for this information.

Rarely leaves nest until maturity. Enjoys conducting pranks on the nearby Razormaw nest.
