Killed 500+ whelps in my first session, no luck. Tried again a week later, killed 200 ebon whelps, I was about to give up. I said to myself "five more kills then I'm hearthing." dropped a dark whelpling on the penultimate kill :)

Farmed for more than 8 hours, 1329 mobs killed, didnt find one =( this is quite sad =(

---

After trying more than 9 hours and killing more than 1500 mobs I decided to quit, my boyfriend tryed a little more without any result. I started trying again next morning and, without any expectations, Ive dropped it after less than 100 kills =). It was really surprising lol
My conclusion is that It doesnt matter how many whelplings you kill, its only luck!


So good luck you all ^^

This pet is pretty fun from an RP perspective. I mean owning a baby member of the black dragon flight? Epic indeed.

i think farming it in badland would be the wiser of the 2 places. being that the ONY raid is back and running for 80's there are more people in the zone, IMO

There's always a surreal feeling that you get when it's been a long grind for a pet.. like you're sleep deprived and slightly confused at what's happened, then it hits you! That's how I felt after finally getting this guy to drop. He's still one of my favourites

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.

In Burning Steppes farming Flamescale Broodlings and I am at 1400 kills so far and no drop. The information on this site doesn't seem accurate. :/ I am wondering if I should switch to a place with a better drop rate like Dustwallow or to Wetlands so I have a chance to get the crimson whelping as well.

 

Update: Over 1500, no drop, switching to Wetlands.

 

Update: Stopped in Badlands instead and got it in 400 kills! And quickly, too since they are bunched together for multiple kills unlike BS.

Final Edit: I DID IT! 7 hours and 2600 kills later, I got my Whelping from the Badlands. Best piece of advice? Don't give up, even if you are going crazy. XD

Edit: Wetlands is terrible. DON'T GO THERE! 1692 kills and no drop. I am trying my luck in Badlands.

1457 kills. 4 hours. I heard this site was magic and gave you some luck. I am hoping that proves true...

One of the quests in the tiny flamefly questline requires killing 5 broodlings. That's where my dark whelpling came from. Totally unexpected; in fact, I didn't notice him until clearing out my inventory after turning in the quest.

Got my from a Searing Hatchling right outside of Ony's lair!  Was actually hunting after a rare Spawn of Ony and just killing the hatchlings if I happen to come upon one.  On my 25th kill I was surprised with a Dark Whelpling!

I was farming the Emerald Whelpling forever then gave up, came to Dustwallow Marsh to level some pets and decided to kill some of the things that drop the Dark Whelpling and got it on like the fifth or so one!

Caught this after a little over 3 hours of grinding. Was farming the whelps in the Wetlands, right near where I farmed for the Crimson Whelping is a line of four whelpings on the top of a small hill that hte orcs sometimes come and capture. I farmed these as they have a fast respawn time. By the time I'd cleared the line the respawns had happend.

Badlands farming (on Kirin Tor) dropped after ~250 kills.  Very happy :)  Now for the others!  Wish me luck.

Finally! Was going to give up after 300 tries. Got it at 256. Lots of skins to sell too. Now time to level this bad boy up.

 

-- Update ---

I think you might be able to get more than one if you are nuts enough to spend the time. I killed a few more and my add on started a new count for me. I believe if you could only have one it would not count again because I have tried that on other pets.

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