Someone else mentioned they captured their silithid from a sandstorm at 2am, same time frame with mine (today is now technically Friday), if that's worth anything.  Spawn rates were quick, like others mentioned, and I found a rare within 10 minutes.

Got mine a couple days ago while doing the Candy Bucket run for Hallow's End. Flying over I noticed spawns, did not see a sandstorm though. Could only find a green, cancelled battles for commons and poors to allow for any other pet hunters that came by. I'll use a stone on this one for sure, now to get the darn minfernal.

Logged on to my server, Smolderthorn (Horde) at around 2 am and behold - after weeks of checking, there were finally dual sandstorms over both silithid areas of Tanaris. Battled basically every hatchling I could find - didn't manage to get one rare. Oh well. People on this site tend to be too negative about just grabbing a poor or common and stoning it. I have no pride regarding this subject. I'm a parent, time is precious, my WoW time is increasingly a rare commodity, and if spending 15 charms saves an hour of fruitless searching for a rare, so be it.

I suggest you leave an alt in one of the pits and check back on it from time to time. I did this for several days before I got lucky with my brother saying there is a storm up. I got mine @ Lightbringer EU on a thursday at 19:58 server time. I read someone else had also witnessed a sandstorm on a thursday around 19:00. So it might be worth checking out. Best of luck!

I found realm hopping to be a successful way to find a sandstorm.  Good luck everyone still looking for a Silithid Hatchling.

This was the only pet standing between me and the 'World Safari' achievement. While I was working on quests in Uldum, I ran over to Tanaris every 30-45 min. It took 2 days to catch a sandstorm but I was the only one there so had the liberty of keeping the first one I caught (poor) and then continuing to battle 'til I found a rare. That took maybe 20 minutes. I will admit to making it easier by using the pet team I had for Uldum so I went through the lower level pets much more quickly.

I'm convinced that Sandstorms happen less frequently than would be convenient. Or at least inconventient if I actually live in Tanaris. Which I am doing until I get this pet!

I have recorded Tuesday and Thursday sandstorms starting at 19:00-20:00. See if this works for you.

Just got my Baby Ape (Rain) at Stranglethorn and decided it's time for Tanaris - camping out on an alt until something happens while I go blog, watch SVU or Dexter and wait. Pity I still have to wait till December 1st to get the Snowy Owl.

unholy hell, how long do I have to sit here and watch nothing happen before a sandstorm comes?  What is the frequency?  Is there even a set frequency for the storms?  I have been leaving my mage there for a month now and log on daily at different times.  I even try the pre-made groups utility to realm hop and no one has them...  gah!

My tactic for farming this critter was to leave a toon parked outside of the Caverns of Time at the flightpoint just SW from CoT entrance. It conveniently overlooks the Gaping Chasm. From there, you can shuttle back and forth to Grand Master Pet Tamer Obalis in Uldam for your daily quest. If you have to leave, you can always port back to CoT through Dalaran's Violet Citadel. You will know if the sandstorm is occuring. Hazy with puffs of sandy "smoke" and what looks like tan snow "falling" sideways. In my case it was blowing towards me. That, and they'll be Silithid Hatchlings all over the Gaping Chasm and Noxious Lair!

Flew into the The Noxious Lair around 7:15 server time happy to see a sandstorm! After about 30 minutes of finding dozens of poors and one uncommon, I finally got my rare! I just kept killing them if they weren't rares.  They were respawning very quickly.  This was my first time attempting to catch a rare, but I can imagine it would be fairly easy if you're lucky enought to get there at the start of the sandstorm.  Happy hunting!

Keep in mind the Special Groups option.  I fly into a storm today and helped quite a number of people finally get their own Hatchlings.

Does anyone have semi-reliable info on how often there are sandstorms?? Posting "Sandstorm now on XX realm! ZOMG!" doesn't help those of us who aren't on your realm or can't get to Tanaris quickly....

Sandstorm on Ghostlands ended about 11:50 pm Central time, I arrived about 15 minutes before and grabbed a rare and an uncommon for myself. They DO despawn when the storm was finished, I didn't see any afterwards.

How often are there sandstorms, I notice that it seems like once a month someone posts that there is one going on..I didn't know if it was just a coincidence.

Sandstorm right now on Stormreaver US.


Flew around the entire hive on the western edge of Tanaris and only found one rare (H/H). Went to the other hive at the southeast side and the sandstorm is indeed zone wide. Hopefully will find an H/P rare.

These hatchlings entertain themselves by clacking their mandibles together in increasingly complex rhythms.
