H/H Iron Starlette

Post by Stencil » October 27th, 2014, 2:55 am

Anyone else having trouble getting that breed of Iron Starlette? I was hoping to get a a few of them since more health works better when using Explode. I've got 19 of the buggers now, 8 from my toons and the rest from the auction house (ones that hadn't been learned yet and were still of unknown breed) and not a single one is an HH. 7xHP, 6xPP, 4xPS and 2xPB

It's rare for some reason, at least compared to other starlettes -- maybe 1 in 40 or 1 in 50 is HH. You can see AH stats for it here

Ofc there's roughly a zillion starlettes up on AH atm, and not everybody knows or cares about pet breeds, so it's reasonably easy to get.

Of the 28 [pet]Iron Starlette[/pet]s that I have gotten so far, I only got one H/H. I have not been sure which breed I should keep though. I have been saving my extras to sell later when they can no longer be obtained in game.

I did the quest 15 times and never saw an H/H. I did buy one on Stormrage for 297 gold though. Still feel I got a steal. I do have an addon that tells me pets breed that are in cage form.

Oh and Maizing I believe I have heard that the pet will no longer be a quest reward but moved to a dropped pet after WOD goes live. I have not dug deeper than just what I have heard so I could be wrong about that.

Could it be that the breed can't be properly recognized by addons at level 1 and will only show after the pet was leveled a bit?

The addons (I use Battle Pet BreedID) recognize them at level 1. I'm sitting on the Illidan AH and see a level 1. They're just so rare relative to the other breeds that you don't see many of them.

The level 1 H/H stands out on AH, health is 165

The only one I saw so far was level 10 or so, so I thought that might be the problem. I'm using the same addon so it's good to know that it works. :)

I am just going from official posts by Blizzard staff... and the last I read ( http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/14882118463#2 & https://twitter.com/TheCrafticus/status/522195823459721216 ), the [pet]Bronze Whelpling[/pet] will still drop, but the [pet]Iron Starlette[/pet] will no longer be available once the event is over.

Now admittedly, that may have changed, but that was the last official info I have.

None of my toons got a H/H so I kept haunting the AH. Someone (one person) listed 2 H/H and a P/P for 122G a piece. Needless to say I bought them all. Days like that make up for the ones where nothing go right in game.
