You don't need an alliance character to get this pet, they spawn randomly with other pets as second or third battle pet (of course only in Twilight Highlands). Good luck!
if your Horde their seems to be a bug where these hatchlings that appear in the alli bases and wildhammer are only attackable mobs (even with a pet icon above their head). they often appear in pairs when fighting twilight fiendling and random singles when fighting other pets in the area. Edit: the double spawning with twilight fiendling seems to have been cut, they now spawn rarely as with other critters.
due to phasing issues i had to log in and out a couple times. Flying via flight path showed a bunch, but, landing despawned them all. After a couple logout and in, they were there again. First fight = rare. Very nice pet. Not the strongest one in my library, but, a great one to have for any collector.
I was having fits finding a Rare, and after battling enough wild pets to raise a L5 crocolisk to L25, still didn't have one. I overflew Thundermar, which had a Poor hopping about with the other hatchlings, made another couple of loops hoping for a marmot at least, and came back ready to quit... when I noticed there was a second hatchling pet. A Rare. Serverstraza answered my pleas!
Caught my rare as a second to a rattlesnake, decided after reading comments here to battle all the pets around instead of just killing them to make them pop up as main pets
as a hordie, i couldn't tame the ones that spawned, but i noticed that they tended to be seconds or thirds to rattlesnakes and highland turkeys -- got my uncommon that way after several tries
I got 2 poor Gryphons today farming between 43.0 35.6 and 51.0 22.0 but i do have stones. one had speed and the other had attack power hmmm. they were both seconds from battling pets in the area. I am horde with a lvl 75 DK so i stayed a way from the buidings. The Gryphons there were out in the open but they had a sword over them when i tryed to click on them and i could not battle.
Got it on rattlesnake as a secondary at 0800 AM Bleeding Hollow at 51,22
Got my rare this morning just outside Kirthaven as a second to a Yellow-Bellied Marmot. I looked for this little guy a lot last night but had no luck. Today it was my first pet battle.
A couple of things I've noticed about this pet: I have yet to see one as a primary pet. Also, they have the exact same six moves as the Pet Shop Gryphon Hatchling, just in a different order.
Catching this pet makes you Neutral with the Wildhammer Clan if you aren't already.
Found mine at 3:30 am server time Vashj in Kirthaven right by the flightmaster...Actually as I landed the little paw was under my feet :)
How the heck am I supposed to get these if they're both Alliance towns???
EDIT: Never mind, got it as a secondary in a battle. Woot. :)
After re-logging twice and area-clearing out all the battle pets for over an hour, 3 Gryphons spawned near the flight path in Kirthaven. On the first Gryphon, a Rare Quality Gryphon came as the second pet. Thrilled.
Got my rare tonight...southwest of Crushblow...53, 80
I spent close to 3 hours farming for just an uncommon near both and between both towns as noted in the guide. All I could get at best was a common, so I followed the comments here and found a rare on my 2nd attempt off a rattlesnake just south of Krazzworks at the end of the bluff before you hit the beach below. One good thing that came out of all that time is that I got a rare of everything else also.
Caught a rare a a secont to a rattlesnake at 54.5,37.6. looks like seconds is easiest way to find these guys. feel good. first one i saw was a rare and he is mine
9/15 - Caught my rare just NE of the Black Breach. I noticed that the secondary spawns are much further area than just near Kirthaven and Thundermar. Specifically all the way NE too Krazzworks. All the way NW to Maw of Madness.
9/16 - Looking for another rare for my wife. Found another literally the exact same spot, same primary (Rattlesnake). Could be coincidence but here is the WP just incase (61.1 30.4).
well, i went try and get a marmot to lvl my pets and well there was this one and a skunk, and of course both were rare and well, i got creamed lol. but later was able to capture 2 uncommons of this little guy so adorablely cute. second one was right by wildhammer fp :)
I second all those saying you can pick this guy up as a second. I expected, like many of the others, that he was only available as a first. Not so. Happy hunting! ^.^
I am a Horde Troll and I found this little guy as a 2nd pet to a Shore Crab just out side of Dragonmaw Port. He is a poor but I really don't care.
Found them easy enough today in Thundermar and Kirthaven, but I'm Horde and it wouldn't let me battle them even though they have pet icons. There was one hanging out by the flight path in Thundermar (which I killed trying to get it to battle) and two by the flight path in Kirthaven. Back to battling other pets in hopes of getting lucky!
