Zookeeper is not the only achievement that has you waiting a year.  May I cite "What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been."  And I highly doubt they released the entire expansion a week after summer is over purely because of a window for a pet.


I am perfectly happy with the three month window of summer to capture this guy.  After all, Patience is a virtue and anything worth having is worth waiting for.

Those of you overseas who are seeing this, can you tell us if it is spawning continuously or only in rare times like the minfernal does?


CONFIRMED by Cory Stockton @mumper on Twitter: They will appear on the first day of summer, June 21st. See his Twitter site for info:

Putting a character on an Oceanic server will not work, WoW has the same server seasons regardless of continent. Those that are looking for the Zookeeper title will simply h ave to wait until early next year.


It makes you earn it, you should appreciate that.

Pretty sure we're looking at June 21, which is the traditional 'start' to summer, and the beginning of the fire festival. 


I don't really get why some of you are so incensed! I guess it's the whole 'generation of instant gratification' thing. If all the pets were buyable, or easy to get, people would complain about /that/.   Yeah, waiting is frustrating sometimes, but it's not like I don't think I'll still be playing WoW in two and a half weeks! Getting the rare pets is all the more satisfying, I think.

Just spoke to a GM - it is not currently 'summer' it is 'spring'.


I spoke at lengths on how the mechanics of the 'winter' pet, snowy owl, shared the same season as the wintersquid - but apparently the Guardling is not the opposite pet to the snowy owl, despite being the only 'summer' pet.


GM hinted at June - but as always, wouldn't give a straight answer - so who knows.

Welp. It's March 20th PDT and I feel cheated. Probably has a random spawning pattern or something. I've been patient long enough! Where's my Guardling!?


Edit: putting on my "the Patient" title and sucking it up. After reading several nasty arguments on the wow forums I've decided we probably all deserve to wait another 2-3 months.

If Summer Bass is anything to go from, we'll be able to catch this from the 20th of March.

If it's anything like the Summer Bass/Winter Squid, then "summer" starts in March around the Vernal Equinox and continues to the Autumnal Equinox in September. You can always catch one or the other of those fish; there's never a time when neither is available.

Not long now.. possibly maybe.


For those who didn't get it in PTR it basically spawns where ever you're getting the sidewinders and scarab hatchlings in AQ. It's not just at the Scarab Wall, it's also IN Ahn'qiraj (as in fly over the top don't go through the actual raid zones.) It spawned everywhere in that area, even in spots you can't get to unless you have a mount. Just FYI in case you hit a heart stopping moment of not finding it when it does spawn, explore the nooks and cranies.

People are being @$$hats on my realm, that is, those lovely realms that CRZ with us.    All of them seem to be alliance as well.  I'm seeing people with the title and the pet, gloating around while trying to capture and in some cases, kill the spawns so others can't.  Why they feel the need to spend hours after they capture it to ruin the rest of our chances is beyond my comprehension.


To those of you who have it kindly move on.  Don't be a jerk.

For those you looking to get a P/P breed.



I am pretty sure you can't get such a breed for this pet.


Also what I don't get is why people are so greedy when it comes to this pet - will you actually ever use it. You catch one, you leave so that other people can get the chance. No need to severeally camp the place just so you can get a rare - thats what stones are for.

Pet has spawned for oceanic servers. I know cos I got one too. Please don't delete post just because you don't believe. Pet is like the owl, has a long respawn period, got mine after about 5 hours of camping. So might have a 4 to 6 hour time? Spawn location are very limited because of the small spawning zone. Head deeper, nearer to the instance portal or out towards the edge, where the floating obelisks are.


Good luck everyone!

I was on my monk, Dulcet on Garona, and had been camping the darned thing since it launched..literally...having abyssmal luck. FINALLY today at 2:25p est i got was a poor but heck, i can use a stone. I would ESPECIALLY like to thank two druids: Furreal and Karmacaster, who helped me look for it and made sure no one came in and AE'd while i was capturing this guy.  Two really great ppl amongst a bunch of me a warm feeling. :)

Just got mine! Wife camped it for 7hr for me, true gamer wife~!!! The pet spawned directy beside the gong. So happy to be out of that area AND out of the ridiculous antics of the other "less mature" players. The best way to get one with the least amount of drama, roll a DK on a Brazillian server (Gallywix in my case) like a few posts before mine suggest. I took their advice and am now a happy Qiraji owner, and a lucky Husband to boot~!! :D Qiraji Guardling

PLEASE THUMBS THIS UP AND LET YOUR FRIENDS KNOW IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THIS PET! If you're a big pet collector and are having trouble with cross server, make a toon on Quel'Thalas the latin server NO CRZ. Make a Death Knight and fly to AQ. I just got my Qiraji Guardling (common) right next to AQ 25. It would be useful to know Spanish or to have someone translate for you, perhaps you could get a person ON Quel'Thalas to use a 2 seater mount to fly you around to find the pet.

The number of people camping these is insane. on my server alone, aliance side there were 29 people at first spawn. once you add in any horde and the CRZ mob. i'd estimate easily 100 people. it's mabey half that now, but 50ish campers is still not worth it. i'd honestly suggest waiting a week or two till the inital slam has passed.

Since there is no such thing as a summer equinox, perhaps the GM was referring to the summer solstice? This year the summer solstice will be in the 21 of june.

The squeaks used by these tiny insectoids may sound cute, but they're actually screaming for your death.
