Farmed this in Wetlands, got it the first day on my 516th kill, was pretty lucky, though it took about 4 hours to get at lvl 100. They do spawn very fast, i just went up and down one side of the area without any trouble.

@ thunderburke. No. I am A level 100. Somehow I got lucky and got the Crimson, Emerald, Azure, and bronze all tonight. I did however notice that when the NPCs start spawning faster and dropping better loot the pet is soon to follow

i haven't read this but have a theory and would like to see if anyone thinks this aa well.  Reading through this makes me wonder (i may be just out of the know as well ..lol). Does your level affect the drop rate.  For instance higher level less chance?

The Dark Whelpling is a very versitile creature and a useful member of any pet team. It is a powerful combatant against Flying, Magic, Water, and other Dragons. 

 

Perhaps the most useful aspect of the Dark Whelpling's moveset is that it has enough power to destroy another creature near outright, thus passing its racial benefit to damage over to the next unlucky foe. 

 

A well-timed combo can instantly kill dragons such as Master Aki's in a single blow.

After about 3 hours of farming my first one dropped. After that I managed to collect 2 more in 3 days of casual farming (you know, the everlingering 'what if it drops again because maybe they like me' question)...it made me question the droprates!

I had been searching for this pet for years, farming for hours on end, and still no luck. It dropped two days ago when I was leveling an alt in the Badlands - not even trying for it, just questing!

 

 

My advice would be to not farm and just make sure you level alts/professions and go for it that way. At least you can kill two birds with a stone like I did! =)

Got mine in the Burning Steppes last night. I just happened to be farming some mithril to level blacksmithing on an alt and one of the little dragons agro'd me from mining. Almost didn't even loot since I was expecting vendor trash. I was flipping out when I did loot.
