Aside from al lthe comments for "what is the drop rate on this chick" The breed that I found that works best is P/P, quills are pretty good but need another pet on your team that is fast to balance out and counter oponent, if required.

I literally loot one about every 6-7 nests...on different toons, but still. I have guild mates who have the WORST luck with them, going to start giving them to them.

One of the few 341 strength birds available. It doesn't come with much of defensive moves. Quills hits for alot. Then use Cleansing rain for a small team heal, but most importantly boost aquatic attacks by 25%. When you go below 50% health you will still hit first with Surge, and that move is further boosted by the rain. Pair it with an aquatic pet for some more synergy. Pretty good vs Crows, you know they will call darkness so do rain and then do surge, they don't get speed bonus.

Sheregal is dead on, I hit the nest he listed and got the pet first try, I had hit about 30 other nest before I came here to see what the drop rate was, THANKS Sheregal!   Sheregal  Rating: 0   [Report] Message member

I have looted 4 of these and 3 came from the same nest location, although I run up and down that area and not everytime I loot do I get one but worth a try. Nest is just right of village pier @ 33.1, 90.02. Good luck

The item for this pet is rare, but the pet itself is uncommon.


Oh good, we needed more Flyers to upgrade.

Took 4hrs of looting nests and about 150g in total repair for this pet. Those cranes come at you like a monkey on a cupcake!

Well, I must just have unbelievably bad luck, I have yet to get one from a nest after about 100 nests, I now own one thanks to a very lucky and kind guild member.  He suggested that there might actually be a bit of a pattern to this after he managed to get 4 in one evening (about 2 hrs of on and off nest raiding).  Not sure if it is, but it is an interesting possibility.

I had been a Brewfest, and saw that EVERYONE had one. Well, almost. So, I thought I wanted one. So...I went to Timeless Isle, looted one nest. Not there. Ok, no big deal. THEN...ON THE SECOND NEST...THERE WAS ONE!!! I had never looted one before.   So...The drop rate is HIGHLY unrealiable.

I looted a blue, but I only find a green in my log, do they downgrade when learned?  * see DeathPet'spost above. ANd I can confirm that they do downgrade, as I looted a second one as blue but green in journal.

Yay finally got my little cutie.  I started yesterday just killing all the chicks and grabbing nests and that was my goal. Today if I past a nest I would grab it. My focus tonight was just hunting for rares and saw a nest and there my chickie was. So excited wasn't even expecting it. I always believe the whole "watched pot of water never boils" so secretly pretend you are not looking for the crane chick and it may just show up :)

I must be quite unlucky with this one. Almost 2 hours now of running from nest to nest, probably over a hundred by now. Yet, no pet so far.

Seems to be a 5-10% drop rate. I've gotten several of them just from poking the occasional nest while running around looking for rares. All uncommon quality.

I got a H/P after maybe 50~ nests (wasn't keeping close count). I was hoping for P/P, since it would make his Reckless Strike hit incredily hard, or possibly benefitting his Surge.


I really don't like the rest of his moveset though so I might just stone it, level it, and send it to the non-favorite pet abyss >_>

Didn't even think to keep accurate track of how many nests I looted because the area is so full of people, but I'm guessing it was around 100 or so. It's so cute and it goes so well with my crane hunter pet that I also got on the Isle!

I didn't even know you would be able to get a pet from these. I came across a nest and saw it was clickable. Thought is was just some food source like the apples and meat, that's scattered all across the island.

Surprised it contained a pet!

Took me about 40 minutes to find this cute lil guy. The best part was that I was about to give up for the day and then decided I would try one last nest and found him, so greatful ^^

Crane chicks of the Timeless Isle sometimes sing a curious song that calms the nerves and soothes the soul.
