Patch 5.0.1 | Posted: September 25, 2012
The Thundering Serpent Hatchling has a chance to drop from Warlords of Draenor version of Unclaimed Black Market Container, which can be purchased from the Black Market Auction House.

In Mists of Pandaria, guilds were able to unlock this pet by completing the Challenge Conquerors: Gold - Guild Edition achievement. However, once Warlords of Draenor was released, the Thundering Serpent Hatchling was removed from the guild vendor and relocated to the Black Market Auction House.

Don't hold your breath on seeing a positive post on this.  It's in the containers and most folks are smart enough to not waste their money.

Can anyone confirm this still drops from unclaimed black market containers?

I have never seen him on the BMAH and I check many servers BMAH every day... something isn't right with this?


Update: So you have around a 1 in 200 chance of obtaining this from a BMAH container. There is no direct way to bid on him. You would be looking at thousands in gold just to get a 1 in 200 shot at him. This needs to change, I get they want to keep him rare, but for us collectors this isn't the right way to go about it. At least have him appear directly on the BMAH to bid on.

 saw that you can only get it at the Black Market but it also stated that you can get it by joining one of the Guilds that already has the ach. There is supposed to be a list on this site of Guilds that let people join just to get it.

Has anyone ever seen them at the Black Market?  The Undermine Journal has listings for dozens of pets, but not this one.



ETA: I think the only way to get them to change this is to fill the Suggestion box and maybe implore a few Twitters.  There's plenty of 'loose' pets one can get from the BMAH, no reason this can't be.  I asked a GM about it, and got a completely copy&paste answer about maybe being in an Unclaimed box.  Thanks, dude.

This pet is now only available through the Black Market, as soon as I see it up, I will report the initial bidding price.

Finally got around to making an alt for a guild that had the pet unlocked, went and quested up until I hit revered, then headed to the vendor -- only to see no pet. It looks like it's been retired, so if you don't have it, you most likely have missed out completely. :( I've put in a ticket to ask, just in case, but I won't have my hopes up. :c -- ETA: Yeah, according to the WCP forums, it's retired from the guild vendors and only available on the Black Market Auction House.

I purchased one of these from my guild a few months ago, converted him to rare, and leveled him up to 25, immediately.  I went back to the guild vendor a couple weeks ago to get two more to add to my collection and they were longer available...  I'm upset.  :-(

Wasn't going to attempt this because I figured the rep grind would be to much, but being able to send an illustrious tabard cross realm and using a new DK I was done in a few hours. Thanks to the Magical Menagerie guild for invite, look forward to staying on!

 My husband thought they were going to make me jump through hoops just to laugh at me and not let me in. I filled out a long application very honestly (ROFL), waited a few days. AND THEY LET ME IN! I  was able to immediately buy the hatchling.


btw, you have to buy one and learn it before you can buy a second one, learn that one before you can buy a thrid one. They are not able to be caged and they are all green unpon learning them. WHO CARES!!??!?! thats what stones are for!!!!

I'm looking for a really good pet battle guild on Drak'thul... I'm heavy into pet battles and I'm almost at the 400 unique pets achievement, and I'm working on leveling pets for the celestial tourney and I could really use this little serpant to get through it... So if someone could please add me that would be great... My main toon's name is Jigoral. Thanks :)

If you're interested in this pet please check out the Community>Forums>Pet Collecting>Thunder Serpent Hatchling guild list. It should be a sticky and it lists guilds (US/EU/Horde/Alliance) that are willing to accept new members who want to grind for the pet.

With regard to 'finding a guild' -


I just googled, "wow Challenge conqueror:  Gold on <servername>".  Where <servername> = my server.  Using the results, I researched the guilds and found an old guildie.  I contacted them, and got an invite on an alt that I'm leveling.  Currently 8k / 12k honored, will have this done within a week especially w/darkmoon faire and the BoA guild tabbard (100% rep gains).


My advice - contact those guilds and ask.

Does purchasing the pet require reputation with Order of the Cloud Serpent as well or just with the guild?  I'm not 100% clear on which reps are required.  If it's only the guild, then grinding out rep on a lower level alt on new server is easy.  If it's Cloud Serpent, then I need to find one on my home server.
