Wailing Critters RNG

Postby Noel » April 30th, 2017, 4:11 pm

So its been 6 weeks and I've yet to see a pet; wondering how my droprate compares to everyone else; is it worth paying crazy money to get the ultra rare pet or am I just unlucky?

So glad Deadmines is using currency.

I do not have the rare pet. I do have the others. I missed a week due to illness.

I've got one pet so not that much unluckier than me. Unless your in a rush to get the pets I would say it is not worth paying silly money for them off the AH. It is 30 minutes a week to run it so not that much time?

Also glad the Deadmines is using currency.

Fourth week: 2 pets (the missing one + a duplicate with the actual breed I wanted)
Fifth week: Didn't do

I'm in the same boat - nothing. Will probably end up buying the pets rather than continuing to do the boring dungeon.

I've gotten a total of 3 pets out of bags so far and sold 2. I know someone who got managed to get all 3 pets out of 1 bag (I can't complain though, they gave me one with the breed I wanted. :D )

I got my 1st pet from the bag this week. The RNG sucks!

At least it seems like for the Deadmines they are swapping to a token system...

So perhaps I'm the closest to @Darkchyld with two Venomfangs, two Moccasins and no Spore. Also didn't get anything out of the first run. ;-)

I'm sure it doesn't matter but some bags were received on main, while others were received on an 95+ alt (You can still turn-in.).

<me> Hm. Peanut and Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm are critters, but Meadowstomper Calf is a beast.

Well, I've just this minute got my third Young Venomfang - and nothing else.

A lot better than getting nothing at all.

One Moccasin on week 2, nothing at all since.

I seriously am glad they're using currency for the next one. Everything is now about RNG regardless of how hard you've worked for what you want.

The Orphaned Felbat is another that's making me cringe for the same reason.

No new pet this week. I start to wonder if there isn't a character- or roster-based limit. :oops:
(even though I've never got a Spore…)

Doing it twice a week (two accounts), has yielded 3 Venomfangs, 2 Cave Snakes, 0 Spores.

Another week, another nothin'....RNG is really annoying me this expansion. So VERY glad they went to a currency for the next one.

Well, this week I got another Cavern Moccasin. I decided to just bite the bullet and buy Venomfang off the AH since some finally showed up on Doomhammer. Still waiting to see an Everliving Spore on AH, but no love so far.

(I also broke down and bought the Orphaned Felbat off the AH for way more than I wanted to pay, but I figured it was worth it in case I got seriously tired of running Broken Shore WQ's for the paragon bags. Urgh.)

I am another one who has done it every week and hasn't gotten any pets yet. I really hate RNG in things like this. It's especially discouraging when others have gotten several pets.

I have picked up 1 Cavern Moccasins, and 2 Young Venomfang since the start of pet battle dungeons. I wound up purchasing the Everliving Spore because it was just so elusive.

Unfortunately blizz seems to think this rng drop is content. It is bad enough that the pet dropping is rng but breed is also rng.
So basically double rng gating these pets which makes it very frustrating.
Why they went away from the CT design were yes it took weeks to get them all but if one put the effort in they were guaranteed the pet. That is such a better design than this rng garbage

Another week and still no Everliving Spore drop for me. At this rate I'm going to collect all of the breeds for both the Cavern Moccasin and Young Venomfang. Maybe even twice, before I see the spore. :lol:

No pets this week. :cry:

I know it hasn't been all that long that the WC dungeon has been out, but I can say that I'm so ready to see Deadmines with some actual currency!
