This is one of several raptor companions introduced in patch 3.2. Upon its initial release, this pet dropped from Razormaw Matriarch, a rare spawn typically found in a cave in the northeastern Wetlands roughly every 5-8 hours.

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

The mama raptor has exactly 3 spawn points. I've farmed this raptor plenty of times for myself and others. So, I know just where they are.

1. On top of the pedestal in the middle.

2. In the back of the cave, almost just behind the wall that's to the back of the pedestal.

3. And, at the foot of the entrance into the deep part of the cave, just a few feet before you reach the water that leads to the pedestal in the middle.

Find a good spot, be sure to use a target macro and you're golden.

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.

I found the nest at (68.31). When you enter the cave if you go kinda straight ahead, not left or right, you get to a platform overlooking some water. That's where I found it.

Very easy to find, thus not very valueable or expensive. Decent for helping your other pets level. Devour gives it a bit of tenacity in battle. Bite can do a good bit of damage in PvE pet battles, especially when powered up with Exposed Wounds. Wouldn't recommend it much for PVP pet battles, unless you know it's going to get the job done. I prefer Chrominius for it power + self-healing abilities.

Because of the relative 'ease' in getting these little guys of later patches (after everyone else seems to have farmed theirs or forgotten) they are usually decent price on AH. Got mine for about 350g on an alt server.

This nest used to have 4 spawn points, but now it only seems to have one..? Recently picked up many Razormaw Hatchlings on 2 servers, every one in the back central elevated area. Also spawns seem closer together in time. The Matriarch only seems to spawn there now, too. Treasure chests are much more rare in the cave than pre-Cata, but contain better loot. (The other raptor hatchling nests still have all their spawn points.)

Got mine on Velen last night.

I searched the whole cavern last night. I logged off that character at 11 PM CDT. When I logged in at Midnight, the nest was there n the middle of the pedestal in the middle of the water.

I logged back in at 4 AM and 6 AM and got two extra copies. One for the auction house and one for a guildie.

I hope this helps others.

I have been wondering: do the nests despawn after a sever restart like the books for higher learning do? If they do I'm sure this would male hunting these pets much easier. So if any of you know of the eggs respawning after server restarts, please make a post telling us.

Easy for hunters to see if she's there. Just turn on Track Beasts and mouse over the dots.
That's what I did and as soon as I saw her, I ran in heedless of the other raptors in the vicinity, killed her, and looted her, letting my spirit beast Skoll take care of the other raptors attempting to defend her, futile though it may have been in the face of my determination.

Victory is mine!

This must be my lucky day. :) First I got the pet from Dustwallow Marsh and now that one. Again SilverDragon addon occurred handy cos' it flashed red and gave the option to target her when I got close enough to be in range. She was at the back of the cave. Very easy and great reward. :)

I was having a really bad day (or well most the week was horrible) a few weeks ago. Then I found this cutie in my mail box. My guildie had sent it to me and when I thanked him he said he thought I needed cheering up :) He really managed on that!

Having camped this for several days (getting for myself, 2 friends and yes, one to sell) I've found her to be reliably at the end of the 5-8 hour spectrum - to the point where she's almost over 8 hours. Don't know if this is just chance, but if you're checking regularly from the 5 hour mark onwards, don't give up because you haven't got her at 7hrs50mins!

Razormaw eggs are protected fiercely by their mothers. Their cuteness belies their inherited ferocity.
