I left WoW running in the background while I worked.  I'm told I missed a rain at ~11am EST.  But I was there for the rain at 3:08pm EST.  I don't know if four hours is a pattern or not.


The rain lasted ~18 minutes.  I had enough time to check all the apes I saw for a rare (I found none).


You can definitely hear the rain if it's running in the background.  In fact, I heard it before the graphics actually started.


Good luck, everyone.

Been camping alts on this island for a week, not a drop of rain. Today I log on and finally it's raining. First catch attempt fails because my damn pet crit it, then I come out of the battle to find its stopped raining! so pissed off right now.



And now on another alt that finally caught some rain there werent even any f***ing apes spawning. I think it's just messing with me now.

I used my newly created DK first to camp out and look for a Minfernal in Fernwood. Got three good ones. After I filled my quota with them, I went and camped at Jaquero Island.  Checked in about three times with him and FINALLY got the rain I was looking for. Scored three PP Baby Apes one good, one uncommon, and one rare. 


SOOOO happy!!! Thanks fir the great tips on this sight.

Finally was on the isle while it was raining - I was so excited! There weren't any though, and I tried clearing out a bunch of crabs and other things to see if any would spawn. It's not raining anymore and I didn't get any - I'm not sure what was wrong.

Hopefully soon... I guess it doesn't seem to be a certainty they'll spawn, though?

I camped it earlier with no luck. I came back later to park a character there and it was RAINING!! (5:30 till 5:50) I started to fly around the island and couldn't spot one. Come to find out they don't show up with the add on. I walked around and they were all over so don't worry. I tried for about 7 of them until the rain stopped. 4 uncommon and 3 poor.

I didn't see Baby Apes even though it was raining. checked for secondaries. No Baby Apes as secondaries. Combat killed the strand crabs and about 2 minutes later Baby Apes! I had just clicked and heard the battle start when it stopped raining and it cancelled my battle so time is very imperative on this pet!!! New info, the Baby Apes do not respawn. Whatever types there are thats it until it rains at a diff time. They can despawn after initial rain and not spawn during the second rain phase.

After reading all of your comments, I went to the island to just do the Princess Poohbah quests, and when I got there...rain.  I was so excited that you could hear me from the other room.  I collected a Rare and Uncommon before the rain stopped.  Without everyone's posts I would not have known that rain was the key....Thanks so much to everyone and this website.

Once it is raining, if you happen to catch it like I did when it just started and no one was round...I think maybe one other person..It was really easy to get a rare, got 2 in about 10 mins.

Finally, after an 8 hour straight camp and a 12 hour straight camp, i have one! The rain started at 3.55am and had finished at 4.06am. The apes despawned as soon as the rain finished. No rares, but im still very happy!

It rained for a split second @ 11:35AM on US-Stormreaver. I was able to snag a common Baby Ape on Jaguero Isle!

Finally got this guy last night. Once I nabbed an uncommon P/P, I decided I'd share the wealth and started a premade group. Sadly, once anyone joined my group, I got bumped to another server even though I was lead and the rain stopped. I ended up jerking the chain of a poor warrior that seemed just as excited. :(

Taken from Adriannah: "What I did is I logged in one evening and went AFk with the volume turned up high while I did chores around the house. When the rain starts it's pretty loud.... So... just turn your volume up and park there. If you want to browse the internet then go to System --> Sound and check "Sound in background" and you will still hear it if you are tabbed out..." My experience:

Fly to the island join a Premade Group - Find a group  - if it is raining on that realm when you join the group they will spawn and you can get a Baby Ape - dont leave group until you have your fill!!!

I caught 3 11:30 am EST finally but not one rare. I will stone the poor one as he has a better rating. Good Luck . I've been trying to get one for 3 years.

Logged in on Dalaran at 8:40AM and it was raining, took a moment for me to realise what it meant, as usually it's sunny.  When I did, I ran around the island and snagged an uncommon P/P and a poor B/B, the next I found was a rare B/B.  It was still raining, but they had started to disappear and by the time I reached the spot where I had seen one on my minimap, it too had disappeared. Extremely Happy with what I did get though.

Young apes quickly learn to hang from branches with their feet, leaving both hands free to fling objects at interlopers.
