I'm not sure if Blizzard changed something but I popped on Earthen Ring and their usual spawning area was full of them of every breed, I didn't even have to go looking.

THE clean-up pet.  There are a number of Legendary battles where you'll face a legendary pet with a pair of less-than-legendary companions.  If that's the scenario, seriously consider bringing this guy along.  With Emerald Dream/Ancient Blessing you can easily heal to more than full and less powerful competition often stands no chance against the Proto-Whelp.

This has become my go-to clean up pet in PvE and grand masters.  I've had this P/P breed stand its ground against two pets and just wink at them.  Definitely a under-recognized powerhouse survivor.

Vib, I got a Rare P/P one the first hour of trying. Sounds like bad luck :(

Hey, I've been trying to catch a P/P Emerald Proto-Whelp of any quality for the last couple of days to no avail. I haven't faced a single P/P yet - is it possible that there is some kind of bug or am I just being EXTREMELY unlucky?

When I just started battle pets, I didn't look at the breeds.

I read some comments where people say it's a difficult pet to find.

I had no problems looking the first time for this pet.

But I have to say I couldn't find it when I was afther the p/p breed....

third time I was there to find the p/p breed, it was 11 PM on delfias brotherood (EU) realm, when there were plenty of them.

happy hunting!

This beauty is one of the most capable and oft used pets in my stable.  It makes a great tank, even when technically outclassed, and can pack a wallop.  I have used it to wear down some really tricky foes.  By far my best wild pet aquisition early on in my pet taming.

This is by far the best pet to have as a noob like myself.  I have yet to loose a wild pet battle with this guy.  Find an area with a lot of pet battles availble and you can go from battle to battle never have to bandage or revive pet.  Unless you have to heal your carry pet.  Cast Emerald pressence, Emerald bite, until either emeral pressence falls off or your a little less than half life than cast emerald dream.  Rinse and repeat.

I have 3 of these now. My favorite pet that bites like hell and can renew to full health usually. Great for leveling 2 pets in shadowmoon in draenor with this as the third killer—sometimes it one-shots royal moths.


Contrary to what people say this has nothing to do with killing whelps. I tried numerous ways. Just fly through here and there and you will see one, two, or 3 have spawned. Go when few players are there. I've seen them more when it's late or early. It's worth it.

P/P caught 4/4/15, so they're still available in v6.1.2

On sisters of Elune realm and found about 10 of them this morning - no rares but a couple P/P uncommons.  Took what I needed and left the rest.  Happy Hunting.  Found them exactly where I expected them, in that small strip of burned out section with the drakes.

Just got a rare, right where the map said.  Had to go through about 10 or so.  Definitely the catch of the day.  I've had no luck finding a rare Nexus Whelping or Stunted Shardhorn today, and just came across these guys.  Definitely improved my mood.   :)

trying to find these drakes is starting to really piss me off, I hate wasting hours of my time for nothing. Do these things never spawn? I havent found any of the different types of dragon pets in all of their spawn locations.

Breath/Emerald Bite + Emerald Presence + Emerald Dream


This is the set-up that makes the P/P Emerald Proto-Whelp a force to be reckoned with. It is excellent against Magic Pets and the Scourge of Flying Pets everywhere. There is not a single Flying Pet out there the Emerald Proto-Whelp is incapable of devouring without a second thought, and any pet that has smaller, multi-hit abilities like Stampede should just give up outright.

I just upgraded my Emerald Proto-Whelp from uncommon to rare and have been power leveling her in Gorgrond.  Lots of flying pets to battle over there so Emerald Bite and Ancient Blessing, so she's been soloing mobs over there starting at level 19 and already up to 24.  Move over Nexus Whelpling, I think my Emerald is my new favorite Dragonkin!!!

I caught 2x Uncommon (Green) Emerald Proto-Whelps over in the Savage Thicket. They were flying there all by they lonesome. I have a Dragonkin stone I wonder should I make one Rare...idk. Emerald Bite/Presence/Dream is an awesome combo. Once you go Emerald, you never go back.

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.
