so far when ever i'm in that area fighting the grand trainer lady in deadwind pass I scope out the scproidling for fun since I've yet to catch a rare. I usualy see 2 or 3 there but after that they don't seem to spawn in for an hour or more later. kind of like the arcane eye's and I've been hunting both these 2 pets for a while now.
I just confirmed, as of patch 4.8, that capturing a Scorpling at the Dark Portal does count towards Kalmidor Safari acheivement. I had to fly around the top of the rim behind the portal for a few minutes before I saw a paw appear at the outer edge.
Well i want to say i follow everyones advice, flew in circles killing every pet in the area, in 3 diff servers, i even went to low populated servers and found none, i gave up around 12:50 midnight (Moonrunner server) server time. Decided to go back to my original server (Zul'jin) to a char i had left in this area, i was ready to go look for another one whe i decided to give it one more look and Boom it was on top of the cave and luckly me, it was a rare!!! so i would sugest trying after midnght.
Kind of difficult to get hold of, and annoyingly comes in many breeds. This has the S/S breed which is top speed Scorpion at 325. This speed will make Crouch very useful, Screech less so except against certain pets. Still weak attacks in slot one, triple snap is chancy and Snap does not hit very hard and can still miss. Rampage is ok, when you got crouch up. Sting has its uses, remember the poison ticks are elemental and as such strong against mechanicals. Still Scorpions feel kind of generic.
I was one of the lucky ones, I found a rare on my first try. It was right above the cave. I only went and battled a few pets and on my circling back to the area it was there.
Circled around the Dark Portal not finding anything but then went up behind the portal I found about 5 (4 poor 1 common) so not seeing anymore I trapped the common figured I can either try later for a better quality or use a stone to upgrade. Did count for my Easter Kingdoms Safari.
Just had mine snatched out from under me.. Went and killed all the pets in the forest then came back to find one behind the portal and just as I was clicking on it someone swoops in and takes it from me.
I turned up and there were no Scorpling to be seen. I took the advice in the comments and did a big circle killing all battle pets (if they weren't rare quality I'd forfeit then just one shot them). I focused on the forest and did a quick circle of the rest of the area and went back and I found one! (one only and was normal/white quality).
I can confirm that today I trapped a common (white) lvl 17 Scorpling above the Dark Portal, and it counted towards my Kalimdor Safari achievement.
As previously mentioned, killing things in the Tainted Forest causes this to spawn. I saw none, went into the forest and killed a whole lotta stuff, came out, and there was one little guy out there on the plateau. I engage and whaddaya know? He's a rare! :D Nice to get the EK Safari achieve with a rare of a pet you've never encountered before.
Found my rare behind the Dark Portal, had to fight about 7- 8 before I found it.
I usualy check the pets by engaging battle, if they are not at least uncommon I forfait and kill them, makes them spawn pretty fast, didn't have to go anywhare else to ensure spawns.
Flying around for about 30 min. on Nesignwary, 5am server. I found two spawns. They were on the mountains behind the Dark Portal. Both sightings had two scorlings, either common or poor. After reading all these notes, I will consider myself lucky and use a stone I've been hording. GL all.
Found rare behind Dark Portal on the first try. 5:37pm Server.
I am working on the Kalimdor safari and it lists the scorpling as a pet that needs battled. I don't see it anywhere in Kalimdor. Am I missing it? Any information would be most appreciated.
after three days I found not one but five Scorplings - 1 uncommon 4 poor - on the ledge over the Dark Portal realm time 1;52 ,thx for the tips on where to find him
Very rare pet. Found 2 atm (1 poor, the other uncommon) right behind the dark portal. 5amST Realm: Quel'thalas. Good luck and happy hunting!
I must have gotten extremely lucky, from what I've read from the comments - my first time going for this one, I wound up with an uncommon on my first fight. I found three in the hills above the Dark Portal on Aegwynn (US). Good luck, everyone!
I got lucky today, found a poor scorpling behind the Dark Portal on that little plateau and thanks to the other two pet collectors was able to switch out to the right team to capture him. Hoping for a blue stone to make him rare! :) Good luck to you others! It is 102am Zangarmarsh time, or 403 am EST. I was on a Horde toon. Thank you nice other 2 Alliance players who waited for me.
Still waiting to get this. Don't knwo if anyone noticed but it is on the list for the Kalimdor Safari achievement, not sure why. I have not found anywhere on any map where it is on Kalimdor. I am heading to look around AQ, but anyone have thoughts as to why this is on the Kalimdor Safari list?
just got a common 1 1st time i ever looked for it i flew around the mountains looking then went and battled a fire beetle came back up the mountain just above the cave and there he was all alone no more to be found in the mountains
