This should be rated higher for combat - it has identical stats and almost the same move set as the Emerald Proto-Whelp, which is rated as #9 overall in battle. Emerald Presence and Emerald Dream make this pet an excellent anchor to any team.

Pet classes can have trouble starting a battle with the Dream Whelplings. If you're getting the 'Failed to create pet battle.' error, dismiss your pet, and try again.

Just an FYI, these pets also spawn after killing Xavius in LFR.

Really cool pet to look forward to after down Xavius, I picked out a p/p and stoned it

Absolutely adorable, this little guy is also pretty good in battles, having the same stats and similar moveset as the emerald proto-whelp.

However, this is arguably easier to obtain if you want a specific breed, personally I was looking for a P/P.

To find a proto whelp you have to look around for a while, the dream whelplings are everywhere in the emerald dream after defeating Xavius and you can always ask a friend to let you in if they finished the raid and you didn't.

I can confirm from previous posters that this guy drops once you beat the final boss in The Emerald Nightmare Raid. I got mine from the normal lockout that my guild finished. 



It also seem ot have a quirk to be summoned at different sizes each time you get it out as the one I caught was a lot larger than a guildy of mine's were. It is also tamable in all rarities so maybe keep a battle stone available. I did not spot it on the pet battle tracking, so you might have to look around to see one.

Find someone with a completed lockout and you can acquire this pet. Once you zone in jump down the... maelstrom?... and you'll get to a clean and green section of the Emerald Dream with whelps all around. Think I saw five spawned with three whelps per battle, so high chance you'll find what you want.


Also it's nice to have an easily accessible P/P whelpling with the Emerald Whelpling moveset. Without question one of the best battle pets around, especially against flying pets.

Tamable by all classes in the final area of the Emerald Nightmare raid after defeating Xavius!

So far the only place I have seen critters, with the same name, is in the Emerald Dreamway.  I did not kill them to see if they would respawn as battle pets, so I cannot say one way or the other if this pet will be another, only available to Druids.
