Spawn time in Valgarde is indeed still quick enough to simply run in a circle fighting the 4-5 spawns that appear there. Took me exactly 10 battles to land a rare. This was also the last common pet I had in my collection. Now to upgrade those 150 or so uncommon ones...
I am die hard Horde, but I have a lvl 47 Worgen that I made for fun one time so I took the boat to Valgard and found that there are about 5 spawn spots for the turkeys you can battle (even though there are bunch around). Went through about 5 or 6 battles before I got a rare. A friend of mine made a DK Alliance toon, went to Howling Fjord on the boat to Valgard and got her Turkey that way.
I am feeling ever so cheeky! There was only one spawn that I could see wandering around inside Valgarde, I snuck in and hid in the graveyard by the wall and when it got close enough I engaged it and it was a rare! Whoot! I was concerned that pvp players can hit you when you are taming but wasn't sure about the guards. Happy to report a troop rode by on horseback while I was taming and nothing happened. Waited til they left before final kill. mounted and left asap!
Although these guys do spawn in small numbers in the alliance towns Valgarde and Westguard Keep, it was much quicker getting a rare one by finding it as a secondary. For me atleast. Happy [pet] hunting!
If it helps on horde side - Towards the North Eastern portion of Westguard Keep a turkey spawns. Near the explorer league mounts. There is a guard near by, but if you're 85+ you can sneak in and jump into a pet battle before anyone sees you. I got my Uncommon this way.
Got a rare today 2nd fight turkey was in Valgard hiding in a hut
Finally found a rare as a second to a worg pup after months of killing everthing in Howling fjord. Was to the point I thought I was going to have to waste one of my Flying stones on the uncommon I had already. Tried the turkeys in Vanguard with nothing but Poors and commons comming up. So glad this one is done now all that's left to farm as a rare is Artic Fox Kit bring on the snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol
Finally gave up trying to get it as a secondary pet after I found rares of every other pet in the zone and still didn't have this one. So far I've spent over 4 hours fighting them in westfall keep and valguard with no luck. What a pain it is as horde! Multiple attempts to enter battle without getting in combat, then when you finish you're in combat with the level 90 guards. Plus the alliance players that kill or battle the pet when they see what you're doing. Highly frustrating.
These turn into little thanksgiving day turkeys when they die. Very cute Blizz. XD
I just spent the past two hours trying to catch my turkey. I battled worg pups and hoped for a secondary none :( i went to valguard as suggested and spent about another thirty minutes trying to get out of combat to engage this turkey. When I finally was out of combat the thing went into a silly tent/cabin and the battle area was "obstructed" i took a break in LFR When i zoned back into the area, i saw one by the dock, and i swooped in for the kill. My heart jumped for joy when it was rare!
Seriously not very fair on horde really....true you can get some as tagalong...but....only way you'll be sure to get one in a fight is going into a ally city. I mean: allyas can enjoy safety as they try all the turkeys they can get till they find a rare and hordes need to kill worg pups in hope you might get a secondary turkey and hope will be a rare one....lots of hoping really...or just jump in and be carefull not to get into battle and ruin your pet fight plan.
Go to Valgarde and hover above town. Target the Turkey. Keybind the "Interact with Target" Key to something on your keyboard and divebomb in hitting that button repeatedly until you land. You SHOULD enter into battle before anything throws you into combat. I just did it and got a poor and a rare turkey with a rat in third.
Although im horde i chose to go to valgarde, guards can agro but if you are careful you will be fine.
Caught my rare Turkey as a backup to a squirrel in Giant's Run. I saw several poor/common quality Turkeys attached to other pets like the Fjord Worg Pup and skunks. Good luck! :)
captured an uncommon at wildhammer .
I found this guy trying to tame a "Frord Worg Pup" looking for rare not luck going thru each battle and i fine a Rare Turkey on Thanksginving early morning sever time 1:27 am est time 2:27 am on Aegwynn . I Named this little guy "Gobbler" the one I saved on thanksgiving xD enjoy
For Horde, you can also get turkey from battling Fjord Worg pup as secondary/third pet to battle. I got my 3 rare turkeys doing that in Kamagua. Not exclusive to alliance areas at all.
The best place to get him would be at Valguarde in Howling Fjord. When I was farming for a Rare I had a level 25 as backup and two level 20-22. I fought each spawn and by the time I had won the battle another spawn had popped up. Just kept going until I got it. Also, cycling through my lower level pets helped to get a few level ups too!
This little guy is outstanding. The 'Food Coma' talent has a pretty quick CD and hits frequently enough to change the battles in your favor.
found one as a tagalong with a fjord rat
Found one in Valguard in a corner near the fence and a tower. As a horde I was a bit wary about going in, but I was able to swoop in and get it without being attacked no problem. And lucky me, it was uncommon, no lame poor quality.
So for all you hordies, try Valguarde, don't be worried about the guards
Found one at 12am server in the town of Valgarde
