While it's a cool looking pet, it's absolutely useless for battling since it's only strong against Aquatic which it's also the weakest against.
Still, it's a great looking pet.
I agree that killing other battle pets seems to help spawn these guys. I camped the spawn point for a little over an hour before 2 other collectors came and sat on top of me. Not wanting to be disappointed if I lost out in a mad dash against them, I just logged to an alt on a lower pop server.
Did a /who to confirm I was essentially alone in the zone then went around killing all battle pets in 5min incriments and camping the spawn point for 5min after. Got a rare P/B in under 30min.
2.43am server time, there was 15 of them (yep, I counted), not one single rare quality, mostly common, only two were uncommon. Several new swear words have now been added to my list.
I was reading the comments and saw that some are convinced that killing the elementals at the Circle of Outer Binding does not help. I'm not going to say that it does or does not help, and this could be coincidence, but when I arrived there weren't any Tiny Twisters there. I killed most of the Thundering Exiles then went to go kill a Grasslands Cottontail in the area. I came back and one had spawned.
I got my Rare Tiny Twister today best way is kill all other pets around the map it should make the Tiny Twister spawn.
If you don't find any Tiny Twisters at The Circle Of Outer Binding, kill all the Thundering Exiles. They will respawn as the pets. I've tried it and it works. I killed all of them and two pets appeared when the other elementals respawned.
Read that killing other pets in the zone had a chance of spawning this one, so I did one lap around the area while leaving dead critters in my wake. Came back to the spawn spot and found someone else battling it.
So ten mins later I did another lap around the area, once again murdering innocent pets. Came back and found the SAME GUY camping the spot.
ahahaha...NO! I shall not be doing his dirty work for him again! Logged.
Haven't seen one at all until today (I don't farm it a lot). Killed lots of exiles, but that didn't seem to help. Finally had one spawn (uncommon), a few minutes after killing the 3 in the center and looting them...he spawned off to the north, by himself, before any of the center ones respawned.
It seems to be a simple random spawn...weather was clear / cloudy, nothing else I could see that would trigger them, so I'd think just keep at it and you'll eventually run into one.
I waited around for about 30 minutes when the Tiny Twister spawned. I got a green one on my first try. Going to keep looking for a blue. :)
These little guys, similarly to the Pandaren Air Spirit have the odds stacked against it, somewhat.
It's an elemental (so it's weak to water based abilities) with flying abilities (which are strong only against water pets). :/
Your best bet for actually using it is either against water pets few to no water abilities or unrelated pets which have abilities weak against elementals (like mechanical abilities, for example).
The first time while camping around 15 spawned (no rares), 1hr later they popped up slowly one at a time but still in a batch (no rares). After those two batches no more spawned for some time. In the following week I checked many times to see campers & no spawns, tried killing critters, didnt help. It was only when I thought "oh Im flying through, Ill stop by" did I get a rare one! If u r agressivley competing for spawns stay inside the circle on the "uphill" side, got luckier there.
2:20 am GMT - Twilight's Hammer
Just netted 2 Rares
H/P & H/S
Got up to the spawn point fully expecting to be sat here all night but there was 2 dozen just floating around.
I went thru them one by one with my Kun Lai Runt (to speed things up) to slay the chaff and cap the two rares available.
Just sat there for about 20 min and it poped up.. green.
got mine on the 1st try and love him lookin for more
I can't for sure say what caused my twister to spawn. I sat in the area for maybe an hour to an hour and a half killing both critters in the area and killing the Thundering Exiles, then finally one spawned right in the middle of the circle and I couldn't believe it, but it was a rare! It was well worth the wait.
I was flying over to get to the Hinterlands and remembered I needed one of these. Couldn't spot anything on my main server, so I logged into an old toon I had sitting on Kael'Thas. Flew over to Refuge Point and found about 5 of them. First one I checked was rare :)
just got it on my first attempt 1:36 am server time alleria and a rare at that :D
Killing Thundering Exiles worked well for me. Went there, killed the circle and after a minute or two a tiny twister popped up (uncommon). Grabbed it and started killing exiles again. After my second round, a rare popped up. And... I killed it :') Still continuing now with killing exiles. A second uncommon popped up after my third round and a poor after my fourth.
2:40 AM server, six of them up. All Common or Poor quality. Every other time I have been out here, none at all.
Flew over at about 7am server time, around 15 there - second one was rare. Looks like they can show up in large clumps.
