You really need to update the info about where to find those rats on Tol Barad. The Wharf Rat does appear as primary pets in Rustberg Village, and there are a lot of them. You wrote "only found as an added pet, may join battle" which is totally wrong.
when you wait for rain at the very dry Jaguero Island, attack crabs and beetles and this one may be the second pet!
There are a lot of level 25 Wharf Rats as primary in the non-instance version of Iron Docks. This location is at the very north end of Gorgrond and you need to climb over the wall that surrounds the zone. There is a tower that you can climb up and jump into the area. This area also has a lot of Elites and may make it hard to get around as your go from one rat to the next. I upgraded from my Common level 9 Wharf Rat to a Rare 23 in about 3 minutes.
I was after a rare one - Spent several hours looking in Booty Bay & vacinity with no luck. Went to Tol Barad Penninsula (Rustburg Village) and killed all the level 1 wharf rats, and any that were not rare. In less than 5 minutes I had a rare one! Thank you for the tip on Told Barad - it was also my first time there too :)
The map is a bit misleadiing. These little fellows can also be found on Jaguero Island and on the little Islands between Booty Bay and Jaguero. They sometimes spawn as seconds to the strand crabs.
I got mine on the savage coast near the nagas as well. I was going to clear out some of the sand crabs and wharf rat popped up as a companion to the first one I battled.
I also caught this as a secondary pet while in a battle with a Roach in Booty Bay. Having the same problem (as with Crimson Moth) where the capture doesn't count for the Eastern Kingdoms Safari achievement though. Sadface!
Anyone else having issues with the Wharf Rat showing up as captured in your achievements?
Found mine next to Plate-n-Chain Blacksmith in Booty Bay. Poor quality, but still
I got an unexpected uncommon Wharf Rat as a secondary in a battle with a Tree Python. I was on Jageuro Island, waiting for it to rain. Nice little surprise!
Got a rare of this pet in Tol Barad. I have a few characters on different servers so I checked each server until I got one.
I actually got my Wharf Rat in Booty Bay.
If you are like me, you need to capture this for the Eastern Kingdoms Safari achievement. I fought many strand crabs on the isle of jaguero, where baby apes spawn, and it DID spawn as a secondary pet there.
The map marks it as spawning in Booty Bay, but I didnt see any there.
I got the rare wharf rat first battle in tol barad rustburg village thanks for the info
Yea i got mine in TB EASILY.. Should put on there that u can get where everyone is saying.
finally got my rat at 69.26 in the rustburg village in tol barad. thanks to who posted that was the best place to get it, i was out there for an hour and 15 minutes lol, when i did get my rare, i actually had 2 in the same battle lol. good luck.
Tol Barad - Rustberg Village is definately the place to go. After having no luck in STV I headed off there and found loads. The mobs are easy to kill at level 90 and there are a fair few rats about and they respawn pretty fast too. Got a rare on my second circut of the village.
Just tried the Tol Barad - Rustberg Village. If you are already 85+ this is definitely a better area to get them than Booty Bay. There were quite a few and I got a rare on 3rd attempt. Not many other people out there right now since MOP.
Yup, agree they are in Rustberg Village in Tol Barard. Easy to get a rare with sides of squirrels. Replaced my level nine rare with a level 22 after the reduction.
There are a few of these (level 22-23) in Rusberg Village, Tol Barad. They seem to respawn quite quickly.
I got a rare brown one, and a common gray one - just need a rare gray now.
