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 :(
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.
I /love/ this little guy. I hadn't paid much attention to him until I starte seriously leveling some pets, and used him at level 22 in the Uldum pet battle daily. WOW. He rocked it, and I was almost sad when he hit 25 and it was too easy!
Flew around Northrend for a couple frustrating hours looking for a Val'kyr, and jetted over to the Coldarra to see if I could finally find one of these spawned. Not only were there a bunch, the first I engaged was a rare and came with a rare tolai hare and a rare borean penguin, neither of which I have in blue! It was so hard to kill them, but I think this little guy was worth it. Lvl 19 P/P, and I went over to the Vale of Eternal Blossoms and promptly killed a lvl 25 frog. Caught 9:25pm Draenor
Got an uncommon, however currently farming a rare. I have found these spawn quicker if you kill the big nexus watchers. Will update if I get a rare :)
Anyone else notice that some opponent's pets' root/stun will still work even during Arcane Storm? Is this a bug or is it a chance to prevent (which it doesn't say). For ex. a Fosslized Hatchling's Bone Prison was able to work even tho my Arcane Storm was up with 3 rounds to go.
A must-have because of its high damage output and dominance over flying pets. With Mana Surge/Arcane Storm, you can pump an average of 1947 damage over 3 rounds. However, Mana Surge is not flexible, so it should be used to finish off targets in between survival CD. If your pet is slow, use Tail Sweep/Sear Magic/Wild Magic for survival against dots and condition-met abilities (i.e. Takedown).
I got lucky. Happened to be in the area to run Oculus and first one was a rare. I leveled it to 25 and it is my main battle pet. Not too much that it isn't good against. Not a lot of life even as a rare but can take hits well and the arcane shot is insane. I've one hit killed 25s. By far my favorite for pet battles.
Went by Coldarra about a week ago and couldn't find any spawns. Went back today. Spotted one, turned out to be Poor, and I accidently two-shot it. The next one I found was a Rare :) I do think its strange that this pet isn't counted as part of the Northrend Safari acheivement
5 am server time there were about 10-15 of them up. Most common/poor, one uncommon, and one rare. All of them were scattered loosely around area where the snow is, I was the only one there.
Flew around the area and none to be seen so starting killing the npcs walking around. Still nothing. Finally flew way up and killed some of the hatchlings (maybe 10-20). Then when I flew around the zone again two had spawned. Both common so I took one (4,14) and left one for the next hunter. Seems killing the hatchlings does help.
Anyone have a spawn timer on these? I've been waiting about 25 30 minutes now and no respawns.
Just got this little guy and he's great! There were a few around and I caught the first one uncommon and used a stone. He's really good in pet battles and just looks cool :)
Pet battlers will want the 4,14 breed with the lowest speed, to take advantage of the Tail Sweep ability. It does extra damage only if your pet is the slowest.
This little guy is a must have for any fights against flying type pets. Also not too shabby against magic types. I searched a few times for him, killing the other critters in the area, and got a rare after 10 or so battles.
0.0 I was really lucky. I only found one and it was a rare! He's pretty cool to add in your collection and all. <3
In the afternoon hrs on Saturday saw about 10 in the area where the Northrend rare spawns. Only got an uncommon, but saw several uncommons & most were poor.
Got my green guy last night, saw two spawns in teh half of a hour I was there. tamed and left. If anyones after this concerned a tame and leave so other collectors can get teh spawn and rarity of ths guy would prolly have one sitting on the edge of there seat. best a luck to other collectors!
Found mine today just outside of the transitus sheild in coldara just slightly south.
