I found that the nearby trash battle-pets to where the primary Wildhammer Gryphon Hatchling spawned seemed to have a higher rate of having them as a secondary pet. Found 3 in a row like this. In total it took 8 encounters with Wildhammer Gryphon Hatchlings to get my S/S which I then upgraded to rare for the Xu-Fu encounter in the Celestial Tournament.

Can be tricky to farm the breed you want, there are a lot of breeds to chose from. P/P 341 power is a true powerhouse, and to me it was worth waiting for this breed.  It's basic 100% hit Peck move hits for 361(alomst 500 on Aquatics). This combined with high speed, and avoidance in Lift-Off makes a very useful pet. One of my favourite birds.

BS it has nothing to do with faction. I was on my horde druid and saw 2 spawn right near the FP, luckly for me these little babies pat around the area. I got close enough to click on one to battle and all that came up was a sword NOT a green paw print. Angled my camera down so I had a better veiw of the BP but still a sword and when I placed my mouse over the non pb nothing came up IF this is an alli only pet, then blizzard needs to fix the info in the pet journal.

Note: There are two types of Wildhammer Gryphon Hatchlings.   There are a BattlePet version,  and just a critter version.  You cant tame a critter. It has nothing to do with faction.

I am currently on my Alliance hunter looking at one of these as main-pet - But it is down a cellar with very little room - I cant seem to get into battle with it..... Any tricks to get the ones in the basement engaged?

Nice to see there's a stable master at firebeard's patrol for alliance to make farming this pet a little easier. While i main horde it is nice to have a 90 alliance on a pve realm for things like this xP Caught a p/p common one as secondary to a twilight fiendling, will give it a go for a while before i just give up and wait for a stone from dailies =]  Good luck!

I just found 2 near the riverbank.  A common and uncommon, secondary and tertiary to a poor scorpid.

They are definitely different sizes... I have 3 and when they fight side by side one is as small as a crab and the other is larger than my fawn.  Huge differences!

Has anyone else noticed that there are variable sizes for these guys? I'm not sure if it's coincidence, but the one I caught from a primary spawn is almost twice as large as the one I caught in a secondary battle. My friends and I compared ours side by side and found them to be slightly different in sizes too!

Found my rare as a secondary to a twilight fiendling right next to the battle pet daily.

Disappointing to find these in game as a wild pet when they were originally meant to be a limited edition pet, when you bought the plushy From the store.

Still on sale in the store, but takes the exclusivity of it away. This pet represented the Alliance in every way and I love having mine out flying my white armored griffin

As a horde toon I was also unable to battle the spawns near the alli towns. Luckily I found a rare as a secondary to a scorpid

I found one up by Kirthaven and (on my BE) was just able to get close enough to battle it but the only option I had was to kill it. I suppose those are alli only spawns. Just now while fighting a turkey an uncommon came up as a secondary pet.

So here I am happily flying around Twightlight Highland and I am trying to figure out if either A) the meaning of faction neutral has changed or B) there has been a mistake in its description. I can kill them, but there is no option for me to battle on my BE. Anyone know what is up with this?

One of the strongest P/P attackers in the game. I don't know what some people are talking about. I'm Horde, and have no problems at all battling or capturing them. Maybe it's something they changed with a patch? Oh, I hate it when people post where and when they found their rare. They're spawned by a random number generator, so it doesn't help! That being said, I just caught my rare, P/P as a second to a Highlands Turkey near the cave in Vermillion Redoubt at 1:24pm server time on Balnazzar! :P

Wondering if you have to do x amount of quests in twilight highlands before you can get this to come up.  Been looking for one since launch and have yet to see one that I can fight.  Have seen plenty as just friendly critters but can't kill them with an alliance character.  Wish I could at this point so they would re-load.  And my horde toons can't get close to the camps to kill them.  No second or third either.  Just NONE that could be battled.

As of 5.3 these little critters are definately not faction neutral as a primary. I main on Horde and was searching for rares in all round the zone when i saw my first hatchling as a primary near Kirkhaven. While it had the pet battle "paw" over its head my cursor was a sword and the only option to kill it. I relogged to an ally toon and got a lift to twilight highlands (toon is only 81) and i was able to battle as normal.

I was almost resigned to stoning my (long-ago caught) uncommon to make it rare, but I decided to give it a couple more tries yesterday and today to catch a rare. Yesterday and off and on today, I saw all qualities as both primary and secondary pets to the ones around Thundermar and Kirthaven (mostly secondary to the turkey, skunk and squirrel). Then my 4th primary at Thundermar (6th primary overall) was finally rare! I am not sure of the spawn times as a primary, but it seemed random.

Too afraid to attempt flying until thrown from a great height.
