Warlords of Draenor
Patch 6.0.1 | Posted: October 14, 2014
Players with any skill level of Mining (even as low as 1) can harvest ore veins in Draenor, however it's not necessary to have this profession to loot the pet.

Looting ore from either nodes in Draenor or from the garrison Mines (does not require mining) can occasionally spawn a Goren Protector. This creature will drop a number of ore, and has a chance to also drop the pet.

S/S is so fun to play! You can get your shield up before most pets can attack.

I have 8 level 100's with level 3 mines.  I mine the mines semi-regularly.  I mine around the jungle when i'm there with my main.  Protective Goren's spawn ALL the time.  But do they share their eggs?  NO!  I think they are selfish not to let me steal their young ... :(

Can confirm this pet drops from Goren that appear after you mine a node in level 2 mines. So no need for the skills or a level 3 mine.

You do not need mining as a profession, actually, you can get him as well from your daily mining route in your Garrison mine. My mage has herbalism/inscription professions, however, when I was mining a node in my Garrison mine, a mob spawned from the node, and the spawned mob dropped the pet.

This little guy is a direct counter to enemies using the Molten Corgi & also works very well as a part of a Plagued Blood / Touch of the Animus team. The S/S breed is excellent in PvP battle pets & is very difficult to kill when used properly.

I just got one from my level 2 mine. A Goren popped up while I was mining ore and dropped it. My toon does not have the mining profession.

Any thoughts on best breed?

 

UPDATE:  Having leveled and played around with him a bit I would like to suggest that S/S is an excellent breed.  Getting Shell Armor off before your opponent can make their move is incredibly powerful.  It's also worth noting that Shell Armor negates the recoil damage you're supposed to take from Body Slam making it a potent, low cooldown nuke.  Very strong pet!

@Ferrin, The guards keep the wandering Goren out of your mine.  I've still gotten Goren spawning from nodes I mined in my Lvl 3 mine.

 

@Morthya, I know it's hard to believe, but there are folks who don't collect pets.  I would suspect those in the AH are from folks who don't care about pets and just see it as a quick way to get some gold.

The goren that spawn in your mine are not the same ones that spawn from mining the ore nodes in your mine. The regular ones that just hang around don't drop ore (they don't really drop anything), whereas the ones that spawn when you mine do. So I don't think it matters how well your guards protect the mine. But this is just based on the description here.

The question about mines, My mine is level 3 and the guards do patrol BUT, the Gorens frequently kill the guards. Otherwise I have yet to see this drop either from "Wild nodes" or Domesticated Nodes (ie Mine).  Oh and the description of how to get this pet mentions herbs instead of minerals.

Does anyone know what the estimated drop rate on this is?  I've yet to see one, despite mining loads of wild nodes as well as those in my L3 mine :(. there appears to be loads on the AH though. 

 

Ferrin - don't worry, I still get Gorens in my level 3 mine :)

They eat and eat and eat, until they grow large. Then they eat some more.
