Like Lissus, I went to the Wetlands in search of a Dark Whelping - nothing after ~1.5 hours last night. Went back this morning - this guy dropped after 35-45 min.! Kept farming (20-30 min. more) and got my Dark Whelpling, as well. My spot sounds similar to the one Bnbtuttle09 used. On Llane, 4 Ebon Whelps fly along the edge of a ridge south of the road, around (64,49). I just kept killing them over & over - they respawn fast after you loot the trash.

12K kills and 11 hours of farming and dealing with toolbags that want to hog the entire area of adds for themselves. Forget it, bought it off the auction house.

Got mine after about 3-4 hours of farming at 67,47 in Wetlands. Thanks for the coords posted in this forum. I was bidding on this little guy earlier for 1000g and got outbid, then it got relisted for 4000g, so I went out to see if I could get him myself. 


After I got him, I was so excited I wanted to see how far my luck could run, so I started farming Emerald Whelpling and I boom, I got 2 in back to back kills! #Awesome

Took me about 7 hours of farming Ebon Whelps in Wetlands but finally got this little guy to drop! All farming done in the early hours of the morning but I don't think that matters =P

I actually got my Crimson Whelpling from the cache you get for killing Nalak. I was surprised to see it when I opened up the cache. The day or so before I was in the wetlands killing a bunch of mobs for about an hour trying to get it.

After feeling completely cursed by the RNG gods.. it finally dropped. 11hrs later.. 23,124 loots and the loss of my sanity is what it took. Bring bag space, a vendor mount, some good music and ALOT of patience! 67,47 at the Green Belt in Wetlands, running between the 3 mobs with the extra wide arcane explosion as a 90 mage is the way to go for maximum respawns. Good luck with the hunt to all. May you not have to work as hard as i did lol :D

Well, it took more than 20,000 kills between my husband and I, but finally one dropped! I was beginning to get discouraged because it was taking so long, but that constant spawn point is great.  Now on to the Dark Whelping!

Finally had one drop for me after thousands of kills, SO HAPPY. I highly recommend getting the spot around 67,47 (I think thats it, where the orcs and dragonkin are fighting).  The spawn rate is brilliant there, aoe them down and auto loot. There are two small groups on either side of them, I found that if I ran up and quickly got those, the pack in the middle spawned faster and with more of them in one hit. I got into a cycle of left pack, middle, right pack, middle, etc. Good luck!

I was out in the Wetlands fishing and this croc gets in my face, so I smack him and out pops this pet. I didn't even know that happens. Well, the next time I was in town I opened up the AH screen and went to shift-click on the whelpling in my bag to see what I might sell it for. I accidentally right-shift-clicked and became the proud owner of a Crimson Whelpling! BTW the market value is about 10K in my realm.

Currently leveling this little guy right now... totally worth the 8k gold I spent on it. The self-heal is magnificent and this pet deals a fairly nice amount of damage.

Have had this one since it was a vanity pet and always found it cute.  Now as a battle pet I find it outstanding esp for pve farming. 


Now that I got it to 25, I find it a great utility pet - esp with the self heal.  The Lift-off ability is extremely effective just note that it misses about 1 in 5 attempts (actual misses not including dodges).  The Breath ability is nearly always a hit, and Tail Sweep is dangerous.  If you pair this pet with a Fel Flame, the scorched earth is deadly paired with the Flame's Conflagrate.


Good luck to all of you farming this one and if you see it in the AH and have the $, grab it because the drop rates are rough.  I have tried farming it to make some $ with no luck and have only seen it listed twice in 2 different server AH in the last 6 mos.


Update: March 9, 2013

Sadly they nerfed this one - I feel they added one round too many to the cd on the self-heal :(

Hailing from the Wetlands, this young dragon is just learning how to hunt, breathe fire, and go on cute destructive rampages.
