dont be afraid to kill em since they are mechanics and will come back to life :P. accidently killed my first one and managed to capture it when it ressurected :D
I levelled 6 elementals from 1-5 farming for this lil guy's rare version! Was actually pretty fun, Tiny Snowman flips his hat while fighting..never would have found that out :) Just pick a new level 1 elemental as the old one reaches 5, makes the rng much less gruesome!
The build you want depends on what abilities you want to use. If you plan to use Overtune, there's no point in going for speed (as you'll get +100% speed anyway). If you plan to use Extra Plating, you'll benefit more from being fast.
P/P is the best combo for this guy. The De-Weaponized Mechanical has the exact same moveset and only comes in S/S making the any of the power breeds more ideal for the Harvester.
After Black Lamb 1st attempt rare catch, head over to Jansens stead and catch a rare H/P on my second fight. I am on fire today! Time log and check on the baby ape...
Had my 1st battle attempt at one of these guys snaked away by another player, so I found another just a short distance away, and it was a rare. Ty karma. Lol :)
I prefer not to think of the amount of time I spent trying to catch a rare. Sure, you battle them and they respawn quickly, but it took many trips because after an hour I'd get BORED of battling them and I refuse to use a stone on a common spawn. I named the H/P I eventually caught Sorrow.
I got mine as rare H/S breed and I name it Destructor it just smokes almost anything that gets in front of it, it's a beast I LOVE IT!!!
Either P/P or S/S are usually your best options with any pet. P/S is always a decent balance too. Since Harvester has the Overtune speed boost ability, I'd recommend the P/P breed.
I actually hit a rare ( H/P ) within my first 3 fights, but none since... a few uncommons but I didn't capture.. I did randomly capture a poor H/H one because I can always stone it if I want.
Anyone really have a thought on which breed is best for the Harvester?
I must have been having a really bad day with these. I was at the farm closest to Elwynn and I killed about 30 of these. The first 20ish? Grey. Then I got an uncommon, which I captured, just in case. Smart move because the next 10ish were grey as well. At that point, I just decided to move on. Though I might go back soon, even if only to level my elementals. Who knows, maybe I'll run into my rare when I'm NOT trying! :P
Well i don't know what i was doing wrong, but it took me around 150 tries to get my rare of these tricky litlle buggers - killed over 20 Uncommons before i got my rare. Just goes to show though - good things come to those who work for them.
Got my rare on the third battle, in the farm closest to Elwynn Forest. Good luck!
Got my rare one in the second battle in the first farmland after entering from Elwynn Forest. There were quite a lot of players farming them at that time, but there was no shortage of these fellows - just check all the farms and see where there are less people and camp it for a bit. Happy hunting!
It took me about 40 fights to find my first rare of these. They respawn almost as soon as you've taken one out, so you almost don't even need to go from farm to farm to find fresh ones. I'm just glad to be done with hunting for this particular rare anymore
Got one at 53, 31 @ 1014 server time. Plenty of them to be had in the tilled fields with the Harvester mobs.
Got an uncommon on my first try right near Old MacDonald ... another one spawned in the same field, and it happened to be a rare.
I acquired a rare first try, looking around farms proved sucessful in my hunt for one :) though I'm sure they spawn other places in Westfall.
theres definetely more to RNG than people think. theres a multiplier for each pet. because it took me 70 attempts to catch a rare one of these....
That's exactly what I did, but it took more than 30 tries to get the rare -- I couldn't believe how many uncommons I found! They spawn at the farm fields and a new one would pop almost immediately after I killed one, so I didn't have to run around much.
On the other hand, I decided to pick up a snake while in Westfall, and the second one I battled was a rare. I swear the RNG knows which pets I really want, and teases me with the ones I don't really care about. :)
