This is for people who have locations or TomTom, I found 5 sets of spawns starting at 44, 80 and walking to 44, 74 before turning around and repeating the walk.
Second set starts at 50, 77 and swings around to 47, 71 and swings back around.
Third set starts at 46, 77 and walks to 47, 60 and swings back around.
Fourth set starts at 47, 84 and swings around to 50, 80 and walks back.
Fifth set starts at 45, 88 and walks to 46, 76 and walks back.
There might be one or two more spawn points in the zone because I found the pet but no adults (50, 52), (44, 87) and (45, 60) but the adults wasn't up and walking around that I could find.
I tried what another post said to do and only grab the pet and leave the Barrens Giraffe adults up and wait for the pet to spawn again, I waited over a hour and 20 minutes and nothing re-spawn.
I was sound asleep last night when my dreaming was interrupted by a voice in my head that basically said, "If you want the giraffe, get up and go now."
So, I did.
At 4 a.m. CST
I didn't see any babies...but I saw a childless pair of Barrens...so I shot them (RIP). 2 minutes later, a couple spawned with a baby in tow. I FINALLY got my "little" guy (who is twice as tall as I am, 'cuz I'm a gnome). I don't care that he's "poor" quality, because to me...he's simply priceless!
There is a currently a bug with the Giraffe Calf and the flight taxi.
When you fly from Crossroads to Desolation Hold (using a flight master) you will see 5-10 of these. But when you quickly fly back to where you saw them, you will only find Prarie Dogs. I tested this multiple times and even used a few friends. I am guessing there is an issue with the phasing between the two zones. Sure made me think I was going crazy at first!
I FOUND A RARE!!! Come my terrible turnip... Beat him with your weak leafy arms!!!
Level 85 Alliance character, no quest. I have seen him 5 times since I started looking yesterday (maybe 3 hrs total? Trying to get in in the "rare" blue version, the "uncommon" green is the best I've gotten).Four times he's been between Fort Triumph and Baal Moden w/2 or 3 adults. The 5th time I found *2* of them together, no adults, up by Forward Command, near that little double hill to the west across the road. Hope that helps!
Pain in the butt to find. Had to look through 2 servers to find one, and it only spawned after killing a bunch of adult giraffes around the zone.
Found mine at 48,73 east of Desolation Hold. Was with a group of adult giraffes.
I could find none, so I killed every giraffe adult, with no small amount of guilt. A while later a calf showed up with two adults just north of Fort Triumph and I accidently killed it. A bit later two calves showed up with four adults at the Forward Command. I caught a green at least.
Yay! Got mine this morning on the southern tip of the battlescar between Desolation and Triumph.
Yes there is, it's called battlepets-quality, from curse. A must have.
Today I found about SIX of these right after the server restart. 5 out of the 6 were Common, and one a Poor. I was so disappointed! I've been trying to track these guys all week.
After finding one and failing to catch it, I found a sort of system that worked well for me. Choose one area in which a few mobs spawn into. I chose the area just east of the road into Mulgore. Kill all the mobs which are not Giraffes, doing this will give a chance for more Giraffes to spawn.
Also, kill all the battle pets in the area and outside of the area. Keep in just the vicinity of your choosen spot and eventually a Giraffe Calf will spawn with one of the Giraffe mobs. Good luck!
These are going to be my White Whale it seems, had an uncommon one but my turrets killed it after my trap missed. I also spent 3 hours killing the same herd of gazelles (every 7 minutes) and they were nothing but gazelles from noon to 3pm server. So if they are indeed tied to giraffes they even have very very low spawn rate or something more to it. Wish blizzard would make the Giraffe Calf one of the adds you get when battling others in Southern Barren.
I was super excited when I saw they added giraffes as a battle pet! Took me about 5 hours total to find one, but eventually found it with a herd of giraffes. I made a /tar giraffe calf macro so I could find one easier as I flew around.
The thing I like most about them is the size, it's so tall! If you give one a biscuit it's taller than my tauren. So cool! =)
stinkin hard to find! i seen it when i was on a flight path and been looking for another for over an hour. :|
Started picking up all the wild battle pets going zone to zone. Came here saw the girrafe went to southern barrens and found him in about two minutes right next to the Forward Command post. Poor quality but just grateful I didn't have to camp him!
Found 2 more NW of Ft. Triumph and 2 pathing between Dustwallow and Ft. Triumph.
found one just south of farward outpost along the road all alone took him home with me. btw it was a common one but looking for a week ill take what found
Remember, Giraffe Calfs are cowardly and selfish creatures. The blood of a hundred souls will not sway them. However, eventually the denizens of the Southern Barrens will tire of the bloodshed and force the prey out of hiding. Kill every living thing.
GOT A RARE!!! 09.00 AM Server Time @49,55 (After circling around for 2 hours)
If you cannot find this pet to capture, run around the zone killing the giraffe spawns until on does spawn. I don't know if looting them helps them spawn faster or not, but I was able to get one in less then 10 minutes after I started killing the giraffe's roaming around.
Back when I was very VERY new to pet battling I didn't know this but I had killed 2 of these to lvl up one of my pets. Now that I know about this and others it makes me so sad to think I did this :(. O well... live and learn.... and cry :P lol
