I checked Savage Thicket during day time hours a few times in the last week. I didn't see a single one. Had insomnia this morning (3am my time) so logged in and found a rare on my first try. There were 5 or 6 milling about too. If you're having a hard time finding these pets, definitely check during off peak hours.
My first capture fight was against a low-level wild whelp so tough it took at least 10 minutes - I would beat it down, then it would heal back up, then I would beat it down... I was so impressed with it I would have kept it no matter the Quality (not Rare, unfortunately and still impressively). As it turned out, I ended up with two of different breeds, and they've been valuable in Pandaria's Master Tamer fights.
Emerald Proto-Whelp (P/P) perfect pet for taking out the Pandaren Air Spirit and its buddies (solo). They are all weak attack against dragonkin. Also a pretty solid pet for pvp battles as well.
This guy is Amesome sauce................................................. a must have for any true battler especially PVP
If you are just starting to get serious about PvE pet battles, these guys are a must-have. Don't get discouraged if you can only find them in uncommon quality, because they're still quite strong, and a P/P breed is totally worth a future battle stone upgrade. Good luck! :)
I find it most convenient to hunt for these immediately after doing the Argent Tournament dailies(if you haven't gotten quite everything from them yet), and doubling up by hunting Stunted Shardhorns at the same time. The area these guys show up in is small enough that it doesn't even take a full minute to do a full lap before going back to try for the rhino.
Go for P/P, with Emerald Bite/Presence/Dream. Turned flyers into total jokes even before maxing out.
I've found quite a few while doing simple fly-overs of the area - 2 uncommons, a common, and several poors. I snagged a poor and later an uncommon for myself. No rares yet, but I'll keep checking (or just use a battle stone if finding a rare proves too hard |D)
I was also pleasantly surprised to find that this pet will fly with you in the air! It always bothered me how the other whelps seem earthbound, but now I've got a little air-travel buddy eheh
This pet is pretty freaking amazing. Mine solo's the whispering pandaren spirit trainer every day without breaking a sweat and I usually have at least 75% health at the end of it. Just use emerald bite, presence, and dream.
Didn't even know this pet existed (or a lot of others, just found this site earlier today!) but... Yeah. I'm totally going back to Northrend now. I want.
picked up a rare last night only one there got lucky.
This little fella has been helped me to get half of my collection, the healing skill Ancient Blessing is great to take advantage to use more traps!
Just picked a (rare) at 10:30am est went back the next day and picked up another (rare) at 7:40pm est. Not sure about a spawn timer, just make sure to get one or three of these. OP
Ridiculously strong healing pet and beastly against flyers.
Use Emerald Bite, Emerald Presence and Emerald Dream and you are set to go.
EP is a strong shield, scaling well with its skyhigh power and providing protection while you snooze and amputating dots. Heals scales extremely well with high power.
One of my most used pve pets. Even more durable than Son of Animus.
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.
