I got really lucky and found one hiding behind his Daddy (a Sentry) in a little alcove about 10 minutes after I started farmining in the Shattered Scar. He was poor quality, but I had a stone to upgrade him. P/B breed...I love him. :) I, like several others in the area, went around killing all the Sentries etc., hoping it would make one spawn. Not sure if that's what did it...but I was so afraid I was going to kill it, before I could cage it! LOL!
After about a month of checking for him 2 or 3 times a day finally got him poor quality but he's mine : )
Just like Mareau suggested, I created a DK on the Venture Co. , leveled up to 58, then went to find one. I caught a common & two poor within five minutes, and even saw two other poors. This was 2/28/2014 around 10:00 PM EST. I've never seen one on any of the other three servers I'm on, which is Suramar, Muradin, and Dunemaul. Good luck! Oh, there were no other players around.
UPDATE: 3/01/2014... I just upgraded my two poors to uncommon, one P/P, these things are everywhere on this server!
Found mine on Aman Thu'l after camping him for a hour. He was of poor quality and H/H breed but I didn't care. He was all mine. A tip when farming lowbie pets to save killing them. Terrible turnip should be in ur team. His ability weakening blow will take a enemy pet to 1hp and never kill them. Will save alot of heartache with killing this guy and losing him /facepalm.
Found mine by creating a DK on the Venture Co. Realm, parking in Shatter Scar, and logging in late night/early morning. Remember though, that this is somewhat common advice, so don't be too surprised to see another lvl 58 DK hanging around as well. However, this realm only seems to be camped by people who are frustrated by this thing and probably won't bother coming back once they get one, so just exercise a little persistence and you will get one.
Try and get a P/P breed one, the other breeds feels lackluster in the battle department. H/H can be useful for huge explode if you are into that. Or S/P just to be faster and Meteor Strike be slightly more useful.
Crush, Extra Plating, Meteor Strike and you got quite a little powerhouse that can last a while, with avoidance from Meteor Strike. Want to go Mech hunting, Immolate and Immolation is a nice choice, then switch to backline with someone with Plagued Blood.
Found an uncommon one at 41.32 40.34 (not far from the road) seconds after logging in with my parked alt on Maghteridon UK. It was 10.55 am server time. The conclusion seem to indicate that cross real restart theory, or killling all critters around the area (which I did not) is not neccesarily working.
It was my second spot within last 3 days, the previous one was snatch by another camper just when I flew down and needed few seconds to change my team. This was traumatic :)
Been camping this little fellow for a few weeks and I finally got one, poor quality but it'll work. I am on the Ceraron Circle server. Server time (pst) 7:40am & loction: 43, 39. The breed was #3 or BB. He was a little tricky, he was hiding within a tree. I've had this before with other wild battle pets, but I could just target him and that was enough. Also I looked all over the area for about 5 mins for another one but found nothing.
After trying all the suggestions I'd read with no luck on my realm(Area 52). I made a DK on Ravenholt a day before restarts because I'd read that it hasn't yet suffered the horrors of CRZ. Headed for Felwood, parked. Next day logged in to Several Minfernals in the area and no one else there. Mostly poor quality, but I know what a pain they are to find so I used forfeit till I found a common one. Next day, one that I tapped was Rare. My leveling pet crit it. I face desked. Repeatedly. Found an Uncommon a day later.
I flew over and found two tainted rats. after killing both and their secondaries, he spawned right next to the road. much quicker and easier than the baby ape and the silithid hatchling.
i got luck and find 2 of them "must have for a lock" pets ^^ in 2 min
i like the sepuku mode a little like the valkyr ;)
Killing the tainted rats does seem to work. I just went to Felwood and flew around about 530am server time and did not see any Minfernals. I then flew around killing tainted rats and other battle pets and within minutes a minfernal spawned. He is uncommon but good enough for me. Good luck all!
My heart is broken- leveled a DK on the Brazil server and went and right to Felwood with my new macro and a glimmer of hope. after 20 or 30 /Target Tainted Rat and kills. POP a minfernal. Clicked on it and it was BLUE. I got so excited until on the third hit, I critted and killed it. Instant scream and slam my desk. I feel sick. I feel heart broken
As far as I can tell, after 3 days doing nothing but hunting for pet, following all suggestions, I have not seen one single Minfernal. I'm Arathor, Madoran, and Hyjal, and have searched all hours of the day. I truly think this pet is bugged. There seems to be no apparent cycle or technique as to force this pet to spawn. Furthermore, as to how rare this pet is, it is in my opinion that it should be of good or rare quaility when it does show its self!
After assuming the rat thing was BS I basically ignored it for a week. Never found a trace of him on 3 servers during any hours. Finally decided it wouldn't hurt to try it, spotted two rats near the bridge fought them both and the Minfernal spawned almost immediately near the first crater by the bridge.
I have been looking for months was givin up and my sister calls in just 2 days by the bridge and goo mobs in felwood on sunday around 10am eastern it spawned both days not sure if this is a daily thing but it happen more than one she also got hers like this awhile back so check on sunday mornings around 10am by the bridge
Saw the chatter about ease of getting these on a low pop server. After about a month trying every other strat, I decided to create a DK on Venture Co. Got her to 58 tonight, headed out to Felwood, started killing everything in my path around the area. Tainted rats, moths, sentries... got my fair share of dim eyeballs and crap. 13 minutes later, right where I had killed a rat, my minfernal popped up! He's poor, but who cares?! I was standing right around 40,40 if you're using coords.
I just moved my DK to a low-population RP server. Went to Felwood to check - and there were like 5 of them little buggers running around. All were poor or common, but I camp and hopefully a rare will come soon. If not, there is always a stone...
The replies which direct you to kill the tainted rats are spot-on, in my experience. Worked for me, in any case. I killed several rats (to include the critters which were not battle pets) and sure enough a Minfernal spawned almost instantly. I had not read these posts before this and I was surprised (I was killing in hopes that the RNG would spawn a Minfernal in their place). I clicked like a mad man hoping to get in a battle before someone else stole my spawn!
Exactly! Please delete all these lame 'I got one' posts.
