I agree with Aguiaazul - I ended up with an H/S on my first roll and that's what I'm stuck with now. Super sadness!

@Miauzinha are you sure you used a blue upgrade stone? Or... that that is the only pet you captured?

I just have used a critter battle stone on him (mine is green quality) and it didn't become blue quality. Is it a bug?

Deeprun tram on the Stormwind side is great for this. I grabbed a guildie and we each took a side. Got the last couple thousand rats in an afternoon. 


Plus any time someone asked what I was doing I just said "Killin rats." Nothing funnier than a gnome monk spinning around over hundreds of dead rodents.

This, and the Stone Armadillo are probably 2 of the ugliest pets on looks alone, but now that I have them I adore them. They make the CUTEST noises on click and during battles. And rolling up in a ball is super cute too. Battle wise, we'll have to see :)

Go to Ihgaluk Crag on Isle of Thunder and squish roaches, and you can solo this achieve. You should be able to kill 300-400 roaches every 15 minutes or so.

@aguiaazul: The Stone Armadillo can have the same breeds as the Armadillo Pup and both have the same abilities, so whichever breed you don't get from the Armadillo Pup can be picked up via the Stone Armadillo.

As a collector, I personally like to get specific breed of my pets, and on the case of this little guy, I find it very upsetting the fact It has two possible breeds and you are stuck with wichever one you get first. You cant buy a second one (you can only have one) and you can't abandon your current one either. Blizzard should think a little more before doing something like that.

After trying the epl cave, zg and the sheep and being in a semi small guild (50ish) and me being about the only pet collector in my guild, theres a sweet spot in Krasarang Wilds (feverbite)"elite" spider that calls upon a load of critters, i used my mage kept poly on it and killed the critters, surrounding trees also have critters much better wit 2, 1 tank the spider other kill critters surrounding the tree. Only took a few hours.

i never noticed it before, but mine is also showing as an Uncommon in my pet window, though the guild vendor and website list it as rare

My armadillo pup is green, not blue, in the battlepets viewer. However, on the armory under my collection, it still shows as blue! Is this a glitch?

That cave in EP is def the best. :)

So now with patch 5.0whatever I have this pet available to me from a diff toon, opposing faction, diff server. I'm having to rethink my WHOLE strategy on pet collecting. :/

Fyi, armory update is no longer a viable way to update one's collection here :(

i find that the best place for a small guild to grind creature kills is that cave in Eastern Plague lands, right at the beginning of the aria (where the dwarf is stuck in the spider webs.) I believe Fiona sends you over there on a quest to find the dwarf.
Anyway, it's FILLED with buggies to kill. My baddie and I walked through spamming AOEs and went from 800 to 2300 in an afternoon. Another good place is the deeprun tram. the rats re-spawn really fast there.

The armadillo pup will periodically curl up in a little protective ball as his idle animation. Sadly, he has no on-click vocalization.

If you're interested, I worked out in ZG you can kill on average 1 critter a second. That's 3600 critters an hour, which makes 50k critters about 14 hours.

....and what's 14 hours to a pet hunter?

In Eastern Plaguelands, in the tunnel that you find the Worgen lady's Dwarf friend in front of, there are literally TONS of Beetle, Spider, Scorpion, and Cockroach critters, if you want to get this Armadillo quickly, I suggest heading there at least once a day and killing all the critters inside.

I cant believe this pet forces you to kill 50000 critters, i get inspried from Oxhorn the Rabbit Stew, maybe the best place to kill at least abotu 10 to 18, would be the Deepholm place, you have critter shale spiders, hope it helps

I heard that in ZG the area where the snake boss was (bring back ZG!) there were mass amounts of snakes. Going there i found that this was true and though there arent as many as EPL they spawn faster and there are no questers there it interfear. just AOE the place wait 30 and start over. Oh and the Toxic Wasteling can help to. The critters it kills counts so even AFK you are racking kills.
sorry i suck at spelling...

Rolls into a protective ball when it feels threatened. Or when its mother calls.
