Just another thing - I got this pet in a Satchel from SoO LFR. This morning. Lightbringer server around 11am PST. Surprised the hell out of me. However, I have gotten several pets now through the Satchel there is another way. Killing the raptors out in Northrend never did anything for me. Good luck.

Considering the high prices on EU-Draenor's AH for these guys I figured it was worth it to try to grind for one myself.  The Gundrak Raptors are located along the snowy outer ring of the Gundrak courtyard and buildings, I never saw one past the buildings so don't bother to look for them there.  Choose a starting point and then zig zag through the raptors in a large circuit along the outer ring. My skinner picked up 198 Borean Leather and 1 Arctic Fur in the 77 kills it took to get him.

I got this pet on my third kill today, right outside the dungeon entrance.  That being said, I've farmed for him several times in the past without as much as a glance...

I just hit over 1800 kills and still do not have it. I imagine its must like the other hatchling pets of its same model. If anyone has an extra they want to give me I won't complain. ;}

OK, OK, I get it. You were (lucky/unlucky) enough to get this pet on the (1st/2nd /3,000th kill).

Now will somebody please tell us how well the pet fights?

Other than bragging rights or how much it sold for on the AH, how useful is it?

Is it worth the trouble to get it? Does it have any special abilities that distinguish it from all the other baby raptors that look just like it (except for color)?

Let's see if the magic will work for me if I complain on this site, lol!  I'm sitting at 2k kills with no hatchling.  Who knew raptors were so shy??

Just wanted to share a tip for those also searching for Unborn Val'kyr: one of her spawn points (75,22) is right along the circuit of Gundrak raptors you kill to get the Gundrak Hatchling, so check with each circuit; for me she spawned at least twice. On another note, don't give up! 1,848 kills and he was mine. He drops into your bag unannounced showing as common quality, so make sure you have space as you may overlook him. However, he is rare quality as a BP. Yay!

I spent about a couple of hours farming this until I got it. During this time I was also doing PvP pet battles though, so actual farming time may be just an hour.

Either I am really lucky or they upped the drop rate. I got it just now after 33 kills.

For those who like to count their kills:


One circuit around nets about 33 or so raptors, so three circuits is close to 100 kills.


Raptors always drop either a Sharpened Raptor Talon or a Sparkly Raptor War Feather. I've yet to see a raptor that drops both or neither, so counting your stacks of those can also help you keep track of your kills!


I'm at 1500 and still counting; no hatchling yet but I'm not giving up! I just keep telling myself it'll be with number fifteen-hundred-and-one...two...three!

I am convinced they upped the drop rate on some of these pets. I got the Azure Whelpling while questing in Winterspring on an alt. So I said, "Hey, let's try for the Gundrak Hatchling!" Three trips around and it dropped for me ... I may be lucky, but maybe Blizz fixed the drop rate.

dropped on kill # 190. it is a rare, so no worries about leveling right away as c/uc, then loosing 2 levels to a beast biscuit upgrade.

Been farming on my S.Priest alt, up to approx. 350 kills with no luck yet.


Very easy to get 2-3 per pull using SW:P.


I highly recommend using a priest/lock/mage(living bomb) to do this.

Love this guy for battles.  Hits like a truck and can heal on finishing move. 


One of my favorites and recommend everyone with him to lvl him up.

I decided to start farming this on my hunter since I was in Zul'Drak and wanted to see if there were any other cool pets to get.  I killed about 30 raptor, then had to leave to do something else.  A couple days later I had to come back with my shammy to get herbs, and I decided to take another shot at it.  I did about 2 hours of killing all the raptors I saw, and it just dropped on about my 200th kill of the day.  Very excited to have this guy to go along with my Lashtail.  Wouldn't sell it for 10k... :)

This crafty raptor was born in the icy wastes of Northrend. Its harsh upbringing gives it strength when many others would perish.
