This helped me out finding my 30th hopling. After 3 full searches through the dungeon after we had cleared it, I whipped the following macro thing out and found the last one cleverly hiding.

 

/cleartarget

/tar Golden Hopling

/script SetRaidTargetIcon("target", 4)

Best to do this after you clear Stormstout Brewery. After the group leaves, go all the way back to the begining of the zone and look for a ghost npc named Auntie Stormstout and buy a few of Ling-Ting's Favorite Tea.  Next, drink one. Then use shift-V to turn on name plates, search every corners and nook and click on the little golden bunnies. There are 30 total in the entire dungeon.  Keep an eye on the buff, if the tea wears off you can't see the bunny so drink another.

here is my suggestion: 

 

clear the dungeon first and stick aroud. Drink the tea (you really only need 2 if you wait til the end). use shift + V this will make friendly name plates appear. Walk around and click them. Super easy.

AND the Shift-V trick did it for me !

 

Thanks to EVERYONE for the helpful suggestions on how to get this guy.  Now I need to level him!

Solo'd this on my 90 Ret this afternoon. No real issues, tbh. The bosses aren't easy, exactly, being solo, but they aren't hard, either. Took about an hour from start to finish.

so just got this little dude, and was a bit shocked as to how easy he really is to get.

 

did the run with a guild mate, brought the tea in the beggining, cleared all, then shift + V to see the name plates, ran and got all 30 of them and get the achive, and so did my guildie, so it seems if u are in the group with someone who dose it, you will get him too. a nice qucik way if you and some guildies are looking for him rather than one by one.

 

happy hunting.

It may also help if you have the glyph for your druid that allows you to track critters along with humanoids while in cat form. However, sometimes if there are too many hozen left it can be hard to pick out the Golden Hopling dots from the Hozen. Additionally, they will only appear as dots on the minimap unless you have drank the tea. Hope this helps!

I got this pet to level 25, he's usually in my farming rotation. His speed is pretty nice, and most of the fights will take priority in speed. This works well for his quick stun, deals damage, stuns, and he gains life back from being humanoid. He has a 5 turn poison that I use sometimes as well just to assure you'll do damage that round (and thus healing). Also he does extra damage to dragonkin, which is handy in later levels and fighting harder bosses.

Best Breed: S/S, over the H/S Feral Vermling

 

• Reasoning: The additional 36 S, bringing it to 325, allows higher chance to att. first (granting a vital additional att. with this lower powered Humanoid) using Tongue Lash and Backflip. So, if you were in the uncomfortable position of being paired up against an undead opp, you will have a fighting chance.

 

With a similar build as the Flayer Youngling, it can be particularly dangerous with a stun, root, and strong Crush attack.

This 325 speed Hopling is probably the best one with this move set. Both Tongue Lash and Backflip both benefit from being fast. Tongue Lash can surprise opponents bringing undead to take your humanoid down. Crush is a nice hard hitter, but remember 80% hit rate. This is a quite powerful pet in PvP and very useful in certain PvE content. Poison Lash is of course strong against machines, and Stick Goo while not doing much damage can really hinder your opponent. Good pet.

Sammy-Joe's guide is perfect.

Thank you!

 

ETA: Just wanted to mention that the targetting system can lead you astray. Often the Golden Hopling was a level above or below where you were.

Also, I changed the colour of the tagret a couple of times to make him stand out more. :)

Got two level 90 hunters(including myself) and a level 90 warrior from the guild and ran this on normal mode. While they ran around and cleared I followed behind them and got the golden hoplings with the macro (which helped so much!). Because we did this as we cleared, I went through 8 bottles of the drink. But it was really easy to clear!

That macro was extremely handy. Note that it doesnt count how many you have found on ur achv bar, so its hard to gage how many you have gotten unless u count them.

There's one spot where a Hopling can spawn and be unreachable. My friend and I spent several minutes trying to find a way to get to it; he even tried using the priest grip to pull it closer. No go, so will have to try again on another run. Here's a screenshot to show you what I mean:

(Don't mind my size -- tried using the World Enlarger, in hopes that a smaller figure will be able to get into the space. That didn't help either. /sadface)

The great big world can be a dangerous place for such a tiny, adorable creature.
