I have found the easiest way to mark the "Mommy" bears is to single target and kill the creeper eggs on the back of the bears. You can kill all but the last egg but the egg will despawn itself. That way you know which has the cubs spawn next to them. It doesnt last long but will last a circle or 2.
i subscribe to the momma bear theory, verified it, it works: bears that spawned cubs, left alive continued to spawn cubs.
Best Breed: H/P
• Reasoning: Although it doesn't have the greatest amount of P, it's primary attacks are designated for P. So, having an H/H is wasting about 29 P that adds up and is especially useful after entering its dead phase.
• Pairing with other pets:
Apply a bleeding effect: Woodchipper / Rip / Huge, Sharp Teeth! / Chop
Do bonus dmg to bleeding opponents: Maul / Blood in the Water
Increase DoT: eg. Wild Magic / Howl ... among many others
Momma Bears is a great strategy thanks for that.
By killing only the Pappa bears I soon had a all my raid markers used up marking the Momma bears.
After that it was simply a matter of rotating round the bear cub spawns till my rare popped up. Got him after around 30 minutes farming.
Undead, huge healthpool and hibernate, this pet can take a pounding. It does not really deliver the damage though, unless hitting humans, since you only have 289 power max. If only roar had been in second slot. Good fit in a Bleed team. Bash ability seems like a waste with about 220 speed, but does have it's uses when wanting a attack-free switch, the cub takes the hit during Bash turn instead. Maul is just superior to Corpse Explosion.
Definitely helped to kill the infested bears to get the cubs to spawn. I didn't see a single cub until I killed about a dozen of the bears.
My first trip came up empty; nothing but poor quality bears. The first bear on my second trip was a rare and right next to him was another rare!
I wanted to share that the saving the "mummy" bears worked for me too - thanks for the idea. For those doing so please note that "mummy bears" do not look different nor do they have a seperate name. These are simply Infested Bears that have a Infested Bear Cub spawn with them.
great advice on the mamma bear theory, mark them or rememeber which ones spawned the bear, if its not a rare you can exit out the match and kill the pet wait for a respawn. approx 5 mins .if your wondering the momma bear is not marked diffrently to the rest it just spawns the bear. you can also get the Snowshoe Hare as a secondary to these to was lucky enough to get a rare..
there approx 5 -6 momma bears who spawn the bear 3 of the being up top of the hill near the cliff edge
I went to the general area around the Sludgeguard tower and the Azureload Mine and never ran out of bear cubs. I found a rarelvl 6 Bear Cub just outside the entrance to the Azurelode Mine and a rare lvl 6 Rabbit as a second to this same bear cub. Right nearby I found a rare lvl 6 Red-Tailed Chipmonk as a second to a common bear cub and a little closer to Sludgeguard Tower I found another rare lvl 6 Red-tailed Chipmonk. All in about 45 minutes.
This method worked perfectly! When i first arrived to the spot there wasnt a single momma bear around. I killed all the ones i could find and slowly started getting a few mommas marked with the raid targets. I had 5 moms with only 2 respawns on 3 different bears before I got my rare. Excellent advice! Thanks :)
Have to add my experience with this...
I was farming for a rare Infested Bear Cub using the raid icon method, started with 2 mama bears and slowly kept adding more. I finally got to where I was marking one with skull (last icon in the list) because I had so many, but as I went to battle the cub, it turned out to be a rare! Luckily I had my Terrible Turnip ready to go.
Took advice so given here about the 'mamma bears and the raid icons'. Found 2 mamas w/ cubs, marked them then killed EVERYTHING ELSE. The spawn/respawn was rapid. More new mamas w/ cubs would spawn. Had total of six going, all marked, as I would kill off everything else. Things went great until an Undead Hordie came and slaughtered all my mamas for the fun of it then laughed. Got "RARE" on fourth cub Infested Bear Cub. Many other critter RARES in LU.
One of the many pets to add for a bear threesome with robo-bear and darkshore cub. Another favorite of mine is the Chrominius, core hound pup, stitched pup combo, and the fossil hatchling, cogblade, darting hatchling.
This is probably the only pet I've ever been asked to desummon because it creeped someone out.
I tried the theory posted below with killing the bears and then marking the "mama" bears that respawn nd it wirked like a charm!! thanks for the tip!
Just flew over the Azurelode Mine.. and spotted one.. it was an uncommon! I'll take it!
i just spent a few hours farming to get a rare. Not killing the mothers but killing all other bears does not seem to make a difference. It was not until i stopped killing all the bears, just marked the mothers for easy reference and flew around that i found 2 rares (accidentally killed the first :) Hope this helps
just followed the method previously poasted within 15mins a bear spawned rare first go as well at 20:16 server time :)
I went with the comments below and just started killing all the bears because I didn't know which were mothers and not... 2nd spawn was a rare, and as I'm leaving atleast 6 more spaws are up ~Gurubashi
