Baby Ape, Silithid Hatchling, and Arctic Fox Kit are all weather dependent, only spawning during rain, sandstorms, or snow respectively. I had my Vulpera camp out for them at separate times, but you could use more toons to do it faster. For the Baby Ape, I camped out on the eastern beach, there are low level hostile apes but they never really got in the way. Just checked before and after playing my other characters mostly, took me less than a week to log in when it was raining. Good luck!

Hooray! I got my Baby Apes today! On Moon Guard about 1pm. Don't make the mistake I almost did. There won't be any green footprints. The apes are just tiny babies running around on the eastern sand. I even went to the trouble of switching characters! Happily they were still there. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it was raining. I was just going to park an alt. It only took 1.5 yrs (though I haven't really tried since last winter). I'd sell 2 for a fortune in gold if I could.

Parked an alt and checked in every few hours. Day 2 it was raining and caught two apes with Grumpy. The rain stopped abruptly after I caught the second ape. Server time was 7/1/2020 @ 9.30PM AEDST. One Breed was PP and the other is BB so a blue stone, and away I go.

Been looking years for this and finally got it yesterday.  Parked an alt on the island and after the second day of checking it finally rained. Was around 8:30 server time and lasted about 15 minutes. Most of them were on the NE side of island and a few under trees on that side.  Plan to hang around for a few hours here and there unless you just get lucky.  This was one of the harder to find pets for me.

It started raining at a little bit after 1430 Pacific Time on Gilneas (Don't know what the Server Time would have been, sorry) and there were a bunch around.

I popped on at 5:30a.m MST while drinking my protein shake & damn near spit it all over my computer when there was a Baby Ape standing on the shore in front of me.  My husband laughed his ass off at my "Oh S#!^!!!" while I scrambled to get my pets situated so I would have Turnip where he needed to be.  Got an uncommon on the first try... then, while it WAS STILL RAINING, I watched 4 Baby Apes that were right in front of me, poof off the beach and off my map at 5:40a.m. Whew!

Baby Ape:  Realm = Dalaran-US, 13:35 spawn time - 13:59 despawned

I was camping to get this one for a while before I realised that my lvl82 is not going to be able to see them spawn. It rained a few times but there were never any monkeys around. I think it's because of Cataclysm.

I changed to lvl100 and camped again. Today it started raining on Khadgar at 9:45pm server time (still raining while I am writing this). I had enough time to catch two blues and a green one despite the fact that I killed first 3 I battled with. Had to swap to lvl 16 instead of 25.

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.

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