I run 2 of these P/S breed (and 1 level pet) and they tear through Taralune and Vesharr's pets in Draenor like they were made of butter. When going against flyers, the P/S of the whelpling usually takes over by the 2nd or 3rd turn and DESTROYS flying pets.

Started looking for one of these yesterday.  Found plenty of spawns last night and this morning.  Plus they would respawn normal enough, initially,  but then they stopped respawning .  Captured two uncommon.  Will be going back to look for a rare, unless I get a stone.


Good Hunting

The P/P Nexus Whelpling is absolutely destructive in PvP. If your enemy doesn't have a Mechanical Pet, even after Mana Surge's damage was toned down, the Nexus Whelpling will put out an insane amount of pressure and (More often than not) kill something.


I get prepared to feel the hurt whenever I see this pet in an enemy team, and it's not too uncommon to see some people running three of these at once.

I was able to pick up three green spawns in a row, all in about 10 minutes, and it was just shortly after a patch.

I'm considering one of those, a P/P breed for PvP to combat all the Valkyrs people are using nowadays, I figuere Tail Sweep + Sear Magic + Wild Magic can really hurt them. Can anyone give me some info about Sear Magic? Does it remove everything, like Haunt, Blinding Poison, Curse of Doom ? And what happens to the Valkyr when you dispell Haunt?

Got my rare on the first one I found :D Granted, it took me a couple trips to even see one. It was only a P/B, so I flew around and found a P/P even though it was poor. I can always stone it later :D

Still trying for a blue but I've seen something funny .dont know if it's a glitch or not. As I was flying round looking for pet battles I saw a sheep and a hare. But when I got there they were nexus whelplings . Was so funny to see a sheep and a hare hovering of the ground. Is this glitch or is it some sort of disguise .

Nexus Whelpling is the best pet to use against Jeremy Feasel.

Using Tail Sweep is the best to defeat the first pet and Arcane Storm is essential to combat the monkey.

Finally upgraded mine to a rare. Found it right before logging for the night. This little girl has one of the more intersting looks then the other drakes. The rune on her leg and the helmet making her stand out.

I was having trouble finding spawns. Every time I went to Coldarra I could find one, maybe two...but after the server reset there were about ten flying around. Had no problems finding a rare then!

It does pack a punch with mana surge, can kill all three wild pets, but when it does, I've noticed I don't get any XP for it.  Anyone else notice that?

Get the p/p breed. Probably one of the biggest hitters. Pair him up with another pet that has mana surge (arcane eye) you are sure to burn through a few pets quickly.

Found a rare in the northwest section, near the tower, after three days of checking the cauldara at random times and only find poor or commons. The best time to go seems to be late morning - 10am to noon, PST. I'm not sure if there are more spawns or less campers, but i was finding about 5 spawns per circuit during that time. Also - watch out for gankers.

Went to spawn area and nothing was around, so I killed a Nexus Watcher and a common one showed up, caught it, then proceeded to kill all dragonkin and everything in sight and couldn't get anymore to spawn, or any other type of pet for that matter :(


update: Went back at 2:30am Uldum time the day after and had no trouble finding them at all. Found a rare 8,18 in my 3rd battle.

I got this pet as a rare on my 3rd battle, the sadistic part was that another rare showed up last.. but of course you can only catch one ;) guess I got lucky!

Just went to capture the Nexus Whelping while I was questing in the area. Founds lots of poor and common versions, but after about 20 I got my rare. Perhaps I was just lucky, but I found this to be one of the easier grinds for a pet.

The runts of Malygos brood, these whelplings are prized for their boundless arcane magics.
