Was in Sholazar for approximately 20 minutes killing drakes, eggs, babies...all to no avail. Speculation: killing these mobs does NOT force a spawn. Guess I'll try back later =)

A breed 4 coupled with an Anubisath Idol makes an ideal duo for fast levelling other pets via the dailty tamer battles.

THE SAVAGE THICKET. All you need to know if you want to get this pet. As soon as I landed there, found an uncommon on the spot. Waited about 10 minutes and 3 poors spawned. Till trying to get a rare. Went out around a quarter to 5 am server time~

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!!!

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 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.

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.

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 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 :)

Not sure if it's CRZ bugging it or if I'm just really unlucky compared to the other commenters. I've been here killing the protodrakes for over 2 hours now and have yet to see a single spawn. =/


LOL! Apparently I just needed to whine about it. Tabbed back in from writing this and one spawned right in front of me. A rare one to boot! :)

Followed some of the comments here and killed some of the protos while I waited. Took all of two minutes for one to spawn and for me to capture it. :) Not sure if killing the protos really works, or just a funny coincidence though.

this one can heal A LOT and can go from catachable to  full health  in 2 turns,  I had an uncommon and  it took out  3 rares of about the same level, I finally caught a common one but I switched to level 25s and made sure they all could heal. it (the common) healed enough to be a pain to catch

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.

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!

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.

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 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.

Got lucky at 6:30 or so server time on Zul'jin, a few were spawned and I managed to snag a rare and altf4 on a poor quality. These guys don't hit terribly hard, but are a nice "wall" pet for when you want to use a defensive pet. Their "emerald presence" ability will not only reduce damage taken, but will completely block out minor dots. On top of that, their emerald dream ability can heal almost to full health, useful for enduring insane nukes that certain pets can dish out.

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.
