got it off the AH for about 4k, pretty cheap considering it was already lvl 25 :)

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.

I was REALLY lucky with this one, as i found it in the AH for only 30 gold!!!

I felt sorry for the player who sold it, though ;)

Got this one ages ago in Azshara, one of my favourites. I plan to use him in the upcoming pet battles in Mist :)

Only 753 kills since i started counting - which was after doing all the quests. Not bad - I came back and did the Timbermaw rep and only seven days into the Wintersaber trainers rep grind. Quite happy with this farming session and brings up my 145th. Black Tabby next...

A suggestion to those farming this pet since world drop farms are the most painful. If you don't have the timbermaw rep start working on that because it then serves a purpose to the farming (and at least for me makes it easier) or if you haven't finished/or have never done all the quests in winterspring then work on those. I farmed the rep for the timbermaw and the pet did drop for me although it may not be the case since it's 1/10,000 drop. Don't give up hope on this little scaley beauty!

Have been farming this now for a few days, 1300 kills later still nothing. Im finding the frostsaber cats the best as theres so many of them and i can skin them so make some gold while at it. Sure hope to get it soon though :)

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