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.
wow I think I hit it lucky this morning! I went to Icecrown to check on the unborn val'kyr and whilst flying down from the tournament grounds a LOAD of the whelps were up - never seen so many (yesterday none were there!). I forfeited about 8 before i found a rare (I already had a poor one) Not sure if I hit the '24 hr since server restart' that they were before or if they've just buffed the spawn rate but either way I am happy :D
you have no idea how hard this was to get on a level 40.
got to ice crown by doing this: http://www.ownedcore.com/forums/world-of-warcraft/world-of-warcraft-guides/187869-how-get-icecrown-without-flying-mount.html
then i went to Sindragosa's fall and died, respawned at the graveyard in Sindragosa and found 4-5 scourged whelplings at/near the graveyard.
Got mine at 10:22PM CET. Was a poor one, but I'm lucky to have at least that one :)
Just captured a rare (level 20) in Icecrown at Sindragosa's Fall (73.35, 39.31) server Azralon at 10:55PM server time. It was accompanied by two cockroaches, one of them was rare quality too. Good luck!
I had never seen this lil guy on my server before today. Read some of the comments here and decided to go kill any battle pets i found in the valley, went back up and nothing. Went down and killed the few critters i could see, went back up, nothing. Flew around for ages then decided to take a break, came back to comp and there it was! The killing battle pets/critters thing might have nothing to do with it, but worth trying it!! Mine spawned at around 69,41. GL all!
Twice now, I have caught this pet as a rare at 9.30am server time. The first time (yesterday morning), my pets weren't at full health and died, then when I found it this morning I managed to cage it and win the battle. I had an alt parked in Sindragosa's Fall for close to a week, checking often for it to spawn. Happy hunting!
The most powerful battle pet when maxed and rare. Couple it with a clockwork gnome and watch the mayhem. For a third I use the Wild Thunderling Hatchling, Lightning does 9 rounds double damage + increased damage for each of the turret ticks, and the 5 roun Corefire Imp or Jade Oozeling. Bonus damage and healing that starts to take place is sick, especially against a slow moving team. Also, imp is perfect against shield teams; +damage causes attacks to penetrate. Sick.
After reading many of the posts, I cruised the blue ice areas of Sindragosa's Fall looking for the whelp. After 4-5 passes, I went down to the valley below and started battling pets there. All of them were cockroaches, and two of them were rare. Good place for that while you wait for spawn. So after 4 battles I went back up to the blue ice, and just south of Quel'Delar's Rest, I found one spawn. It was a poor but then thats what stones are for. Took my prize and smiled. Was around 6am server time on Nesingwary (on a totally different subject, i took great pleasure in one-shotting those elite bone giants that were the bane of my existence back when hehe)
