Like the other whelplings (Nexus and Infinite) they are numerous but seem to take a while to respawn if someone's gone through and battled them all, which is what creates the appearance of being a rare spawn.
Took me 2 days of going through every whelp in the area to get my P/S rare - glad that's over with. :)
They must have really increased their rate. I just happened to be up there to do the Major Payne battle and saw one. First one was an uncommon. 4 fights later a rare. So there were 5 up there together. Happy days!
At first these were very hard to find but lately I've seen a slight increase in the amount that spawn. Be sure to fly around all the mountain sides, they tend to be off to the side (from my experience) rather than in the middle of the spawning area. Definitely a great pet to have as it tends to be slower allowing you to have an extra strike with tail sweep, and is also good for an aoe team in pvp with dreadful breath.
woah! doing some argent tournament rep and went the wrong way, decided to do a fly by for this little critter. First one I found... RARE! Ok Blizzard. I forgive you for the 5 hours of fishing without finding Old Ironjaw last night
Holy! Finally found mine after 20 minutes of searching, was a common, at 68.7, 35.8... Madoran (US)!
Seems to be one of the most popular undead pets in PvP, not near Unborn Val'kyr. Not very good synergy between Call Darkness and Plagued Blood. Have seen more and more trying to use Dreadful Breath, but then you commit to three turns where you can't react. Seems to do well with shadowflame/tail sweep with Call darkness for dragons and healers. Or do Death and Decay, Plagued Blood and being slower gives you two hits from Tail Sweep, the heals with tick in at a steady pace.
Got a rare one this morning (lvl 21) and also 30 min before that I got my unborn Valyk so i am happily logging off today :D
Found one (and only one) at the very tippy top of Sindragosa's Fall, right beneath the tournament grounds. There were no other battle pets in the area and killing whelpings didn't make any spawn.
Definitely think the rates have been upped. Had a toon camped out there for months without ever seing one. Went back on a whim (after giving up for months) and there were at least 8 out there. No rares, but several uncommon.
Whether or not this is true, I found mine after knocking off a few whelpling mobs and saw it spawn... rare too. :)
My favorite dragon killer. If you have an undead stone, and this isn't rare, make it rare...
Can't say for sure if killing the Frostbrood Whelps helped mine spawn or not, but I killed 2 and next thing I knew a Scourged Whelping popped up. 2:24am Mok' Nathal
After getting a Rare Unborn Val'kyr, I went to check Icecrown 1 more time, before I log off. There was only a few around that I seen. 2 RARE and 1 common, this was around witching hour. Good Luck!
Found a couple of these while flying around Northrend for the "Longest Day" achievement, and the second one was the breed I wanted. Common quality, but I'd figured it wasn't worth continuing to try for a rare so I captured it. Battle ends. "You have recieved loot: [Flawless Undead Battle-Stone]." And after that piece of luck, I may never receive raid loot again! :-P
I think I can safely say that they have NOT upped the spawn rate of these creatures of undead awesomeness. I've tried many many times and on quite a few various servers, and I still have yet to find me a rare P/S breed. I have really bad luck with Undead stones too, sadly. I wish I could predict when they'd come back up again on the two servers I have max level toons on.
Not sure if they've upped the spawn rate, but I've been flying from Dalaran to the Argent Tournement the past 2-3 days doing dailies, and I've seen a bunch of them up. Just spotted about 5. Usually on around 9pm-2am EST on Windrunner.
Went to look for the first time last night on Eldre'thalas, 4:20am ST, wasn't sure if they spawned one at a time or in groups. Found one immediately and swooped down to capture. It was poor, but also dropped an undead stone to make it a rare! Came home today at 4:50pm ST, nothing there. Logged on to Kil'Jaeden at 5:20pm ST, 3 there, then 1 spawned about every 5-10 minutes after. Still spawning right now, if anybody sees this and wants a try.
Read comments first, went there and saw a poor one paired with an uncommon and rare cockroach. Let the rare cockroach go for the poor whelpling, went a bit further and found four more.. One of them was uncommon and caught it.
Update: there were 10 more so 11 in total. Just my luck that one of them was rare. It almost killed me while trying to catch it, caught it though (thank god).
I spent months with one of my alts camped hovering above Sindragosa's Fall, trying all sorts of theories, only to never even see a single one. Today I finally just decided to switch it up a bit and take a different alt on a different realm there, and bam! Three of these guys just hanging around. 73.08,38.19 @ 10:30AM PST Nesingwary US to be exact, uncommon to boot.
Even with this CRZ craze, I think that trying a different server can't hurt, especially if you're not seeing them day after day.
