Erudite Manafiend. 2 hours farming. No rare.

Post by NeverFinal » September 17th, 2016, 2:32 pm

Hate to use a stone on a wild pet that i could find a rare of but Im about to. Running around in circles for 2 hours is annoying. A

Anyone have this problem with this pet or another?

I know how you feel - if at all possible I want to catch rares instead of upgrading them. I can confirm that Erudite Manafiends do come in rare naturally, as I caught mine rare after deciding I too didn't want to bother stoning one. However due to the slower respawn it does feel like a bit of a struggle. I'd suggest physically killing off any poorer qualitymanafiends you come across*, to force a fast respawn. The area seems to be flagged to keep a certain number of battle pet versions of manafiends at all time, so one of the critter ones will take the place of those that you kill off.

* (I only use this method if there's not other people pet battling in an area. I also avoid killing anything that has a rare secondary pet, as a courtesy.)

I finally just got one. Took so freaking long. Seems like alot of the legion wild pets are like this. Having the same problem with Coastal Sandpiper.

To Add: It also does not help when the Combat Allies are currently glitched and like to go after whatever they want. Especially whatever is targeted when I happen to close to an enemy. Such as a Battle pet.
