About the spawn time: I got mine in the afternoon: a friend was there at around 3 pm, got a rare and told me there were some. Unfortunatelly no more rares for me but I got an uncomon and left 2 poors and 1 comon there for someone else.
Brilliant vs Flying creatures as they naturally deal less damage to dragonkin with flying attacks and it has two attacks strong vs flying as well as a 3 round c/d heal.
My favorite pet for leveling and running the trainer circuit. Good Multi Family attack, dragon passive and dual heals means they can often solo the entire team by themselves and end up with full health. Not so great against legendaries as blocks, feints offer greater utility against extreme damage.
This comment doesn't fit here. But you will find my observations very helpful. :)
I am inclined to believe that these are more likely to spawn at night. Logged in about 1:00pm on a U.S. server, waited for them for half an hour, killed all the drakes, nothing. Logged onto an Oceanic server, flew in, there were several.
This being my first comment i felt it should be used on this pet Ancient Blessing and Emerald Dream make this pet nearly unbeatable also a high attack doesnt hurt either :)
All wild pets have different HP after you tame them. It can be confusing. Power and speed always stay the same though.
One of my very favourite pets, combined with another level 25 he is awesome for levelling lower level pets, his magic bite is excellent against flying pets and a heal is always handy. He's standard in several of my set ups!
A breed 4 coupled with an Anubisath Idol makes an ideal duo for fast levelling other pets via the dailty tamer battles.
When I went looking for one I didn't see any. Flew over by Mistwhisper Refuge and one was there. It was a rare. Was able to beat all 3 completely with my level 22 Darkshore Cub.
The Emerald Proto-Whelp did little damage (my bear was only down around 200hp after the entire battle without using Hibernate). Mainly healed himself a lot with Emerald Dream and then Ancient Blessing.
I was fighting these for a while (got an uncommon, but no rare). There seemed to be an endless supply at the time, but then they just vanished. I waited around for a while, but no more spawned. Strange.
I've farmed this guy a few times because I love him so much. Be patient, they'll spawn.
Performance-wise, he's easily my favorite pet, and has been for several months. I use him as a "ringer" for leveling new pets and doing the dailies. Played properly, he's almost impossible to kill (in PvE).
I use a Breed 4/14 (full DPS) with Emerald Bite, Ancient Blessing, and Emerald Dream. This gives him fairly good DPS and absolutely stellar heals.
I stalked the area for awhile and saw no spawns. My que for my raid poped so I went in and when the raid was done I came out hovering over one and he was a rare. Fate smiled on me.
Rocked up to the savage thicket, spotted about 7 of them all poor but one common attack breed which I caught and shall use my battle-stone on :D
I also notice that the whelp isn't on the safari list yet
Just got my yesterday at about 7pm server time on Dragonblight. Poor Quality but couldnt care less. I saw two at once but someone else got the other. Stoning this pet as soon as I get a dragon stone.
It makes the creepiest noise I love it!
This lil bugger was a bit of a brat when i fought my first one it kept healing itself lol...then i realized he was a rare and he was the first i encountered. there was about 5 up on Blade's Edge at 4pm.
I am a bit of a newb at collecting and don't really know what is a rare spawn or not. I was flying about today and saw an area with pets I had not collected on it, so I swooped down and grabbed the one paw I saw. Lucky me! I got a poor one, but that is what the stones are for, right?
Flew into the scorched area of Scholozar, and to my surprise there were about 7 of them spawned up in one area. I only engaged two, got an uncommon and a rare. Cute little bug, imo.
After reading some of the comments, I made sure to level my team a bit before going after this pet (I engaged with two level 24's and a 23). There were no others on my server looking for this pet, surprisingly. Mine spawned just outside the burning trees, but I was hovering high enough with my minimap zoomed all the way out that I saw the green paw. I lucked out that it was a rare. They are pro's at healing themselves over and over, so be prepared for a fight.
So mad right now!!! After farming this guy for days i went to check and FINALLY there was one and better yet it was a RARE!! Well i have 3 lv 25 rares with me and i couldnt even get the whelp to below 30% this healing is just ridiculous!!! Needless to say i will once again be farming for hours for this little monster...
