Finally, 5 worgen DKs later, a .4/.9/.4 Gilnean Raven to use my Flying stone on.
And from my bags, a mechanical stone to use on my Anodized Robobear. No more camping those damned rare-spawns is a sweet Xmas Eve gift.

On the 5.2 PTR, if Nevermore procs, the raven now shouts "Nevermore!"
Generally found along the road/mountains between Valley of the Emperors (south of Mogu'shan Terrace) and Winter's Blossom. Check in the nearby monastery areas too, since apparently they are a curious bunch.
He seems to be granted as Rare now (at least, mine is).
Doesn't sing though.
For those without a fast rabbit, any speed Snail works great against the Spirit. Same critter benefits + self-heals, damage reduction, and Dive to wreck it.
The hardest part of the fight is actually the rat/mole for me. I cheese it with Grunty but even then a Stone Rush crit makes my day a little darker. Just don't be tempted to use a Mechanical against it.
Avoid Aquatics on this fight as every pet on his team uses Flying attacks. On that note, Dragonkins are really good for this fight for the same reason.
My Team: Lil'Deathwing, Soul of the Aspects, Pandaren Water Spirit
Water Spirit is a great with Dive but without it I'd use Water Waveling on the spirit. The other two pets don't matter as long as they can make short work of dragons/critters.
These come in two colors - beige or blue, and maintain those colors post-capture (I picked up a rare of each color for no particular reason)
