Can anyone confirm that this pet still drops? Going on 20+ runs and not one Hatchling yet...Over 500 dead raptors with little to show

During this Life Lesson on mindless grind I have come to discover many things: using the powerbill envelope does not provide enough room for tick marks. During an unconscious moment I couldn't remember if my hands ever left the keyboard/mouse to make my mark so I had to go to a color-code in alphabetic order.  As a secondary check/balance I summoned a pet to the current tick mark color. You may/or not realize that you have been at this too long when you begin /pray with each reset.

I think 101 is my lucky number. I got this cutie after 101 kills, same as the Dark Whelping I farmed for yesterday. All I did was kill all the raptors in the beginning of the Wailing Caverns, go back outside to reset the dungeon, and repeat.

Decided to take my mage over and farm this lil guy up today and after 103 kills I got it. Since the mobs you need are only in the very front part of hte instance, best bet is to kill them all and then simply run out, reset and keep going. Good Luck. Now on to farm one for hubbie. :)

I don't know if I deserved to be this lucky, but I got it after only six kills.

Got really lucky with this guy, used one of my lower toons so I could also level my skinning and I got him after about 35 loots :) I wish I had as much luck with my fox kit :(

Found this guy by farming the raptors in the first section of WC. Kill'em all, loot, skin, reset, repeat. Didn't realize that I would get locked out by doing too many resets within a short amount of time. :-( So, when I got locked out for the second time, I broke out one of my lowbies who needed to level her skinning. On her first pass through, it dropped for her!

I wasn't even trying to get the pet, I was farming for the gloves of the fang. I got bored after a few runs, so I picked up the dungeon quests there. The first raptor I killed dropped it! I sat there in surprise for a few seconds.

Been farming this at least once or twice a day before grinding another pet. Probably done the place 30 times now and still no luck, heading over there for one last set a 5 before calling him done for the night.

Edit: Got one the 2nd run

I got this to drop for me on my 219th kill (I've dl the rarity add-on to track for me). If you are into rep achievements I do recommend throwing on your Gilneas' tabard as someone else suggested and killing "two dinos with one instance" hehe

Good luck those still hunting!

Got him after only 91 kills of Ravagers and Guardians as an 85 rogue. Just ran around that inner ring in WC, aggroed all of them (and several other various mobs), Fan of Knives a couple times, rinse, and repeat. Incredibly easy grind, and I needed one of those, especially after the ridiculousness that is farming the Crimson Whelpling.

Got this guy today after 2292 looted kills, and 4 1/2 hrs of farming (this does not include lock out time). I don't know how many times I ran into WC! I can verify that it is indeed still dropping out of WC, so don't give up hope! If you are an eng. make sure you take in some repair bots with you, so that you can drop them right outside the instance. By the time you finish a second run, the bot will still be up and useable (10 min). Also, as someone suggested, wear a city tabard, rep is good!

I have no luck when it comes to random drop pets, but tonight I am on a roll. I got all 4 nest hatchlings and thought I would try my luck at this one. Needed to farm some leather and scales for my alt.

First run nothing, second run two dropped, third run another one. Anyone know if they increase the drop rate of these little guys because compared to what others have said these shouldn't drop this often?

Got him on my third run through the instance. Just remember to change your tabbard when you do your grind for your pet. I was able to add a little bit of the Gilneas rep while grinding.

This raptor is pretty much the same as the other raptors. I only wanted him to complete my collection. I doubt I will bring him out that often. I rather use my Boomkim which can walk or fly.

The demand for this purple-skinned breed has drastically reduced the raptor population near the Wailing Caverns.
