Something very odd is going on with the pet battles today.  I was having the issues of logging on that Blizz has been trying to correct all week.  Was doing the ach for 400 uniques.  I was at 389.  After the rolling restart I jumped to 399!  This beauty just appeared in my journal!  I know I never got it. also got a second Emerald whelpling.  Haven't worked out what the other extras I picked up yet but wow, thank you blizz!  I named him Mystery

Found it on the AH on Hydraxis for 2000 gold. Shook my head in disbelief as I clicked "Buyout" and ended the ridiculous grind. Still need the Emerald Whelping, so my work in Feralas isn't done....

I love this pet!!! Favorite by far. When it was a quest chain I did the parent quest chain after finishing up the start of the quest with 2 night elves who where trying to protect and free the sprite darters. Got him on a few alts back in the day. Had about 6 of them when they became battle pets.

OK I *have* to have one of theses and I'm starting the grind today. Here is my plan: Using a druid alt: because the mobs are fairly widely spaced. Killing frayfeathers near the Ruins of Isildien and SpriteDarters near Camp Mojache because according to WowHead those 2 mobs have the highest % drop rate for the egg at a whopping .3% Meanwhile, I can check the whelps and do some pet battling to raise up my lvl 9/10/11's. Wish me luck! I will report back.

I had gotten this pet just as I got Wraith of the Lich King. It had dropped and I was like its so cute.  I would run around with it on my rogue all the time.

OK, I'm confused. How does Alliance get the pet? I think I understand that for Horde they just run around and kill every living darter next to Mohaj.  Another I read basically said kill this or this or this. I got two emerald dragons trying out that theory. BUT no little darter.  Is there still an Alliance quest? If so, what is its name? Does it still work to beat the daylights out of the adult darter population if you are Horde?  You have me confused, step by step please.

This was a super rare drop from mobs back in Vanilla BEFORE being a quest pet. and now it is back to a drop pet, just not as rare as it was to get to drop back in the day. I farmed for a couple of weeks to get this one, with the help of my ex. It was little known, but when he got one to drop while questing and trying to not get killed he showed me and we headed off together to find one of these beauties for me. Good luck on the hunt! This is still one of my most cherished pixals <3

Can you loot this pet after you already have it? I wanted to try to farm it for my husband. I was going to cage it and give it to him. Is that possible? Thanks so much.

This should be your go-to pet against all Flying opponents. It has that amazing combination of taking less damage from their flying abilities (since it's a Dragonkin) but ALSO has Magic abilities, which deal 50% more damage against those same Flying critters.

 

Perfect combo! Not to mention she is a beaut! One of the few times the Blizzard Gods loved us.

I just got this dropped from a Noxious Whelp after about 220 kills.  I already got my Emerald Whelpling pet at a little over 100 so I consider myself extremely lucky, especially since I usually have terrible luck!  Don't give up!

Ok, so this pet is now official the hardest pet for me to get my little belf hands on (well, not that blood elves have small hands, but well..you know).  I'm hoping the WoW gods are looking down on me while I write this and they take pity on me cause I'm starting to see Grimtotem Mauraders in my dreams!  I do recommend if you are going to start farming for this one...take an alliance toon and round em up at New Thalanaar.  AOE loot ftw. /peeks up and smiles at WoW gods hopefuly.

With this beauty you can 'solo' 6-7/10 Beasts of Fable if you use Life Exange. Sadly when using against beast it's an instant 25% extra damage, and he can't handle it alone... Regardless, it is definitely my favorite pet above all.

 

 

And it's a shame that Nether Faerie Dragon now has the exact same abilities...

This pet's Life Exchange ability is very strong against the Beasts of Fable.

I only started playing a year ago. At first I just wandered around exploring and ended up in farals. I was such a new player that I didnt even know companion pets existed! and I was low level so mobs kept attacking me. I remember dying, a bunch. But I obviously killed the right one becuse, as I was vendoring I saw it. I SERIOUSLY almost vendored it. I had never seen somthing with the option to right click to do anything.  So thats what I did, and got my first and favorite pet.

Got this pet back when it was for the Ally quest. Loved it from the day i got it.

 

It's speed makes up for the lower attack. And a well timed Life Exchange and change a loseing battle into an easy win. I know other pets have the spell but they don't look as cute ^^

If you want an easy equivelent of this pet the Nether Faerie Dragon is almost exactly the same except maybe for stats and it has different asthetics so head to feralas where it is easy to pick up a rare around dire maul tey spawn so regularly

These adorable critters love snuggling with their owners after a long day of brutal, bloody battle.
