Rare Today @ 37.0 - 31.2 Spires of Arak
With Sunlight/Love Potion the Golden Dawnfeather has serious staying power while also giving you a 50% boost to the capture window due to Sunlight increasing the enemies health. It does work in battles as well, combining it's staying power with a team AOE and a basic attack that's either steady and reliable (peck) or punishing against slower enemies. Combined with a Humanoid like KunLai you can duo almost every WoD battle allowing you to bring along a lowbie pet to level. Underrated.
I think this is the only pet that has 75% crit chance and a heal!!!
First attempt at catching one of these cute little pets, and got a rare first try 55,32. Happy battles!
A lot of Golden Dawnfeather I've found are poor, never seen uncommon, common or even a rare, so I went ahead and just capture a poor for now.
Finally got a rare today just north of Southport. I followed the road leading north between the Writhing Mire and Axefall, all the way up to Veil Akraz. I killed the non combat dawnfeathers as I went, but I'm not sure if that helped the repop rate.
I named mine Mathers, after a member of the 19th-century occult group Order of the Golden Dawn.
Searching for the right name for this pet? Goldie Dawn. You're welcome =D
North of Pinchwhistle really is the place to look, but I saw several scattered around the zone too, so keep your eyes open. I don't think they're actually all that rare, they just don't tend to be found in large groups.
Also, they can do some real damage against the wrong team so make sure you have a pet capable of taking it's hits if your trap fails a lot. Sprite Darter was perfect.
Happy hunting! ^_^
There are also 2/3 groups at 55,5 . 32,6, in a clearing called Shattered Rise to the right of Crow's Crook flight point and below the letter "H" in The Howling Crag name on the mini map.
Good luck and hope you catch one of these little beauties. :)
Also found some at 59,0 . 66,9 (slightly North from Pinchwhistle Gearworks.)
Caught my first one at 32, 31.Haven't seen it as a secondary pet to anything in the zone yet either.
Edit: Second one sighted near Pinchwistle Gearworks. A signle pet and no others like it nearby.
