Flawless Flying Battle-Stone Tips

Post by Iconyx » January 23rd, 2013, 10:03 pm

Outside Wyrmrest Temple in Dragonblight is perfect for farming Flying Battle-Stones. Here's why:
  • Wild pets are level 22-23, giving higher drop rates on stones and more XP for leveling lowbies.
Thought others might find this useful.

I have yet to get a stone... granted I don't do the dailies every day but I do level up my pets here. Just unlucky I guess. On average how many battles does it take to usually get your first stone of the day?

I estimate that I get a BoE stone every 100 battles or so where I am fighting versus level 25 wild pets. After looking at my total number of battles won, that's my best estimate.

Today I happened to get one right before logging off, after a streak of not finding any in a while. A few days ago I got one on my second fight, so it varies ultimately, and just purely my data alone isn't enough to give a detailed enough picture of the true drop rates.

I have yet to get a BoP stone from wild battles so far, which I find extremely odd, as I've easily gotten 10-15 BoE's.

All of my BoP stones came from daily bags. For those getting BoPs from wild fights: are you fighting versus 24s/25s? Or lower? I typically only battle versus 25s and sometimes rarely 24s if they happen to also be around. I'm wondering if this is the difference in obtaining the BoE versus a class-specific BoP stone.

I don't really go out seeking to find stones, and not stones of a particular type. Instead, my goal is to level enough pets to 25 to get the Singing Cricket pet. Only 5 more to go. The battle-stones I get along the way are just extra surprises. :)

Again, after about 75-100 pet battles, I got another stone, but this time...a Beast stone! This is the FIRST time I have gotten a BoP stone from a wild battle after, from counting back, 13 BoE stones.

Perhaps it is set to have around a 1% drop rate if you are fighting versus level 25 pets? They did state that the higher level you were fighting against, the better chance for a drop.

I have leveled off these guys quite a bit and never got a stone from them.. I think overall, I have gotten a total of 1 stone from the wilds :(
Why, oh why do you hate me so, Mr RNG??

I've gotten a few battlestones from wild pet battles but I've noticed that when I do get them, all 3 of my pets are lower level than the ones I'm fighting.
