Was flying around capturing pets missing from my list. Decided to hit Hyjal for the Nordrassil wisp. Caught one, then hopped over the hill to Winterspring. Echo isles, 8:30 Pm server, 8 kills in the village and it dropped. Sometimes you get lucky, I usually never do.

Got mine today! Seriously lucky. After about 250 kills it dropped. The best farm area is to the right of Everlook, all of the shamans and ursas. The respawn rate is fast and you get some good greens out of it too. There is also a rare that spawns in the area Grizzle Snowpaw, and he has a 0.09% drop chance [which is higher than all of the mobs in Winterspring (0.01% to 0.05%)] but his respawn rate ranges from 3-6 hours.


Happy hunting <3

Got this today. Farmed winterfall village. East of ever look. Noticed the npc's started spawning faster and dropping better loot including blues. About an hour into this it dropped. I've noticed this seems to be the same on all the whelpling drops. Watch for the extra loot to start and the pets will drop soon.

Thanks for the tip. Farmed the village between waiting for raids and success. Beats paying nearly $20,000.00 at the Action House!!!

Winterfall Village was the spot for me. 4 kills and I got my Azure Whelpling. :)

After 3 days of off & on farming in Winterspring- I got one after about 500 hits.  I just stayed in the Winterfall Village and kept hitting the bear guys.  They respawn pretty fast and I thought it was pretty easy just time consuming.  Just keep trying and stay in that village!!!  Good Luck!  -Lanolan  Zul-jin Horde

I personally got frustrated of all the farming and being interrupted constantly by other I kept an eye on the AH and managed to buy one for 1900g. That's not much to keep your sanity @vvv@

Confirming that this still drops off the fast spawning mobs in the Mazthoril cave as of patch 5.4.2.  


I personally had some confusion because wowhead did not list it as a drop for any of the mobs inside the cave (out of 100,000+ kills), and was beginning to wonder if it had been removed as a drop from those mobs because they respawn so quickly.


But thankfully, it does still drop off the mobs in the cave.  In my opinion, easily the fastest way to farm this pet.

Pretty stoked, I've had terrible luck with farming for whelplings so far until this guy. Got Bunny Hunter to help track how much I'd actually farmed and managed to get him to drop after about 528 kills. I farmed the oozlings and elementals at Frostfire Hot Springs. They respawn super fast. Good luck!

I've named my Azure Whelpling "Awbee" in honor of the poor lost little whelp in Blackrock Spire. I did her quest back in the day, and it was one of my favorites. I always wanted to take Awbee with me as a pet. I was so happy when they added this pet to the game!

13013 kills now, still counting. Just so you know, if at some point in the future you find Winterfall Schaman and Ursa refusing to spawn ... I wiped out the whole village about 400 times now.

True Love.


I was helping my husband clear out his duplicate pets (he's only JUST NOW getting interested in them) and noticed he had this one. I commented. He said he was going to put it on the auction house since it was so rare. I cried (well, not really). Today, he decided to GIVE IT TO ME.


I am so happy. Now if all my farming of oozes in Swamp of Sorrows would finally pay off...

I was ready for a long grind. Maybe the Wow Gods have shone down on me, because I got this somewhere between 100-200 kills. I was qued for a dungeon and someone was taking forever to accept, so I downed a rock elemental real fast...BAM! Azure Whelpling. Panic set in as I hurried to collect...would the dungeon procastinator hit accept before I clicked it (I would have thrown my computer across the room)? Made it. I feel so lucky right now.

Johnathon- You are immeasurably lucky to have gotten those other drops in such small kill amounts. For the Dark Whelpling, I spend several days doing nothing but farming (only stopped to sleep), first 1600 or so kill in Burning Steppes, then 400 more in Badlands when it dropped finally. For the Black Tabby I spent at least 1000 kills and left without ever getting it. Camping for a rare Onyxia spawn was easier than this drop farming.

Like other members of the blue dragonflight, these whimsical little critters display an affinity to arcane magic.
