The area was full of harpy younglings every three or so times I got there - until I tried to kill the bad quality ones in hopes to get a rare to spawn. It was very stupid because they really do not respawn fast. Didn't help me at all and now any others trying to get the pet will not find anything. :( Much better to just come again later.
Have been looking for a rare for over 12mons. Usually only found poor & commons. Maybe 10% of the time found an uncommon. Went in this morning, on the 4th battle caught a rare. Needed 1 more win to level up a worg pup. Took the precaution of releasing the green dupe of the 1st capture. Engaged next harpy I encountered expecting poor, & practically fell off my chair when it turned out to be a rare of the 2nd breed available. Captured it & hearthed out.
On Queldorei server 1:@0 local time Second try at capturing one of these and got a Rare quality one! Also got two achievments (Family reunion and Take 'em all on)
was up in the Dry Hills was drawing a lot of aggro from harpies as well as lions be careful
There's a few around its 4:27 server time first time looking. All poor quality but one uncommon.
Just caught one, 3:30 AM server time, Hyjal server. I've been looking for weeks. There were three up. I left the other two for those who might need one.
Hope that helps!
First one I caught was a rare.
I use the Harpy and Rotten Little Helper pets as my primary leveling pets when I am killing crap in the zones. I find that the rotten helper is great for beast and dragonkin, the harpy is just a damn fine little work-horse... so to speak. :P
First I found was grey and the second rare! Though.. I managed to kill it >.> always the way!
The first time I was in the area there were none around, but this time I battled about 20, every one in the area and only came across 2 uncommon, the rest were lesser quality. I guess the rares don't spawn everytime?
This isn't as hard to find as people say it is. It just has a long respawn timer, you just have to be patient. When they do spawn, there is a load of them around. Just park an alt there and log in every few hours to check, you will get your rare. Happy hunting!
Just discovered this pet, caught one and killed it, then thought, maybe I should catch one at least in case they are rare, after that the 3rd one I found and caught was a rare! Less than 10 minutes total :)
Huh, just found out that my Rare level 25 Harpy is male, not sure what to think about this.
Took me a long time to find one of these. They just took forever to spawn I suppose. The attacks are kind of weak though so I just bring her out for looks.
is this pet needed for zookeeper achieve it doesnt seem to be listed
I've gone back for her a few times and each time I only find one spawned in the same location, never been rare never found more than one. So either I'm unlucky or she does not spawn numerous harpies or frequently.
This is one of the most annoying catches - while they are majority common or uncommon, found a rare upon moving down just a bit in the zone (near the tower) It took approx 30 battles to find a rare and I worked the entire area for about an hour.
Diligence does pay off!!
Location: Northern Barrens 30,37
These get so hung up in thier animations and freeze, it make battles take forever.
I've noticed that Harpy Younglings tend to appear in "flocks" rather than spawn individually. They usually don't spawn all day. Flocks seem to spawn at random times.
I dont' know what I'm doing wrong. The harpies take so long to spawn after I defeat one.
If you kill everything in the area, you will find many harpy pets to battle. Not sure how long it took to find a rare but it couldn't have been more than an hour. Anywho, this and my Unborn Val'kyr are my favorite vanity pets. Plus she's a solid battle pet. I like to use her against Aki since she has humanoid and flying moves.
