Just captured my rare (level 19) just east of Eco-Dome Midrealm at 2:14PM server time on Azralon. The rare was actually back up for another roach which was common quality. There was also a mouse as backup. Good luck!

Found a rare just across the bridge from Manaforge Ara, in front of the Stormspire dome. 11:50pm Nesingwary. My work here is done. :D

Blizzard's Cory Stockton (@mumper) just confirmed in a tweet that this little guy's not being immune to its own "Apocalypse" spell will be fixed in 5.2.0.

 

I had a pvp pet battle end in a draw yesterday because apocalypse killed both the last opponent pet and my Nether Roach.

Picked him up as a second to the Fledgling Nether Ray--he's uncommon, which works for me since he'll never come into play (I think they're kind of gross!). Got him around Manaforge B'naar. Happy Hunting!

This roach seems to be unlike other roaches and cannot survive its Apocalypse attack.

If you're after these rotches they are very often/nearly always as an extra to another battle like the nether rays. I cought my rare farming for my rare ray.

There seem to be plenty of these roaches around the manaforges in Netherstorm.

The nether roach has adapted to the cold vacuum of space and requires no air to survive. Inside it bears almost no resemblance to a common roach.
