Now the pet may only be farmed by both factions as a zone drop in Feralas.

ALLIANCE: Recover an orphaned egg from a nest, encase the egg with a protective substance, travel across the globe to ensure that the pet is in the best possible hands, collect food for the pet when it first hatches, and finally, welcome the pet into the world when it hatches and become it's mother.

HORDE: Kill an endless amount of Sprite Darters and rip the un-hatched egg from a dead mother's rotting corpse.

Well, motherhood isn't for everyone.

My favorite Pet of them all.
As a Night Elf she gives me Pride for she is one of our own and full of the Elven Magic. She reminds me of the splendor of our race and a Crowning Jewel to our Mother Elune. Her Wings glorify Elune in their Beauty. As a Druid I am happy to make sure her kind still thrive to astound us all in our walk with Nature. She never fails to bring a smile upon my face.

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.

I felt just awful farming this. I mumbled an apology to myself after each kill. The 126th darter dropped mine. I'm envious of alliance: not only do you not have to slaughter the little fellas, but you actively work to free them!

This is the main reason my pet obsession became what it is. After doing the horribly boring chain to uptain this pet, she was the first "Wow! Where did you get that little cutie?" comment I got. That was it: I'd sold my soul to the pet community. As a warlock, that might be fitting though.

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.

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...

Got this back in the day when it was awarded in the end of a quest chain. The chain and the fact that you would get this adorable pet from it was not well known back then, and we were not so big on checking every little thing online yet either. It was a well kept secret by a few of us for a good while. I have never been so happy to recive a pet before.. "Congrats, Akeleie. You're a parent... kinda"

After ten days, two dozen cups of coffee, thousands of kills and looting enough tiny fangs that I'm sure I'm pooping them out of my booty-cheeks, this pet finally dropped for me. This dragonlet is fabulous, in every way imaginable. Very striking; people do double-takes when you have this out in a city. If you're going to farm for this, I highly recommend farming the Noxious Whelplings in northern Feralas, around the lake. I got eight whelps to drop in the time it took me to grab a sprite.

Got him today after 1,3K noxious whelplings, while earning 3 tiny emerald whelplings, I was about to give up hope, took a small break and bang, on the first kill on my return.

OMG!! i finally got it about 5 min ago. i farmed the Noxious Whelp first for about 8000 kills and got a bunch of emerald whelps but no sprite darter so i looked on wowhead and they said kill Grimtotem Marauders b/c they were so many and fast respond time so off i went. it took me 17786 kills and it finaly dropped. i was so happy! this was the longest i ever farmed for a pet even longer than the Parrot Cage (Hyacinth Macaw) that took only 9k kills!It still drops just takes a long time. GOOD LUCK!

For any Horde with auto-loot on trying to get this please bear in mind that, as it's common and BoP, you won't be alerted when you pick this up. I spent hours farming for it only to realise it was already in my bags and I just hadn't noticed (it's easy to miss along with all the other common items you'll end up picking up at the same time).

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.

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

I wasn't even looking for this pet when I found it. I was levelling archeology and was killing to clear the zone I was surveying. I generally loot everything, then sell all the junk on my way to the next site. As I was going through my bags, selling my greys I found this pet. I was so excited, but feel bad for anyone that spent hours trying to get it. It makes a pretty great battle pet too.

I killed just over 4k before this cute bugger dropped off of the Grimtotems. I was on the phone at work when it happened almost screamed aloud.

Been farming this for months... Around 7000 kills and no luck... All I can say if you're having a hard time farming this like me is to keep trying, eventually it will happen. :)

Dropped for me from a Grimtotem Raider after only about 7 kills, nice and easy. But maybe I was just lucky?

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