An easy way to get your rare version of this pet is to go to Carrion Hill in The Bone Wastes (Terrokar Forest) - 42, 52
Rats spawn ALL OVER that hill and they have an incredibly fast respawn there. These Stripe-Tailed Scorpids often come as secondary pets with the rats, so it's very easy to battle a bunch of them and get as many retries as you need to get a rare one to pop up (all without having to leave this little hill!).
I haven't had the chance to check Terokkar's spawns yet, but here's what I've found in Badlands and Tanaris:
-The ones you find in the world have stable skins - so if you want a specific look, just find one with the skin you prefer and catch that.
- The ones that join a fight are color-changers.
Got a rare in Badlands, SW of Camp Kosh (Turaylon Server)
Confirmed got mine as a secondary to a rat on the bone piles.
I tried what Brianne suggested, and while waiting for respawns went for a fly around, and came across a ton of rats at Writhing Mound (48,67) and got my rare stripe-tailed as a secondary there. Farming bone waste rats would seem to be the way to go :-) Thanks Brianne for the tip!
I just got a Rare right outside of Gadgetzan. But it kinda sucked cause the Gold bettle that came to fight with it was also blue! I had to only pick one lol! But hey I got him and he is Blue and so pretty =)
got a rare while looking for a gold beetle this one was called it :) got lucky.
over by the abandoned camp in badlands.
For all of you who have a "skinchanger" scorpid:
Did it happen to be a "2nd" pet?
It seems that all joining battlepets with more than one skin can change into its other colors when summoned.
The displayed skin of a skinchanger scorpid in the petjournal is grey. So if you caught a (for example) red scorpid and you have a grey one displayed in the journal, this most likely means you have a skinchanger. Summon it several times just in case. :)
Colour Changer! Got mine at Terokkar Forest - summoned few times at got all alternate Skins.
found at 22,25 badlands!
I found mine west of Gadgetzan in Tanaris.
