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.

Sweet, I got this fella after 101 kills. I found the best spot to farm is in Badlands. It's best to do it at night when no one is one. You have the field full of Scalding Whelps all to yourself.

So...another website said that it was a .18% chance of getting it from Nyxondra's Brood in Bad Lands.  I figured that was about 1 in 555.  I got myself ready for a long night (or multipule nights of farming) and I got it on my 18th kill...guess 18 is my lucky number for now.

Hopes that someday it can grow up to destroy villages, just like mommy.
