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.

Something worth mentioning. If you have the Toxic Wastling pet, any critter it eats counts for the Critter Kill Squad total. So if you don't want to sit and do a dedicated grind on this one, let the Wastling do the work for you! (though it will take a much much much longer time going that rout.)

@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.

The best place I have seen to farm this would be in Northern Stranglethorn at Zul'Gurub. Go to where the snake boss use to be located. You will see massive amounts of snakes, go around killing those and they don't stop spawning. It's fantastic for grinding.

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.

The Zul Gurub snake boss spot was definately a good area. Make sure you have 5 people in group, because that way every critter you kill counts for 5. Classwise I suggest doing it on a warlock with that hellfire-while-running spec or on a rogue, because they don't run out of power as easy as other classes.

I managed to kill about 10k critters every 45 mins in the zg area (in a 5 man group)

One important note: there is a (horde?) quest in this spot that kills everyone there :)

I likes armadillos! Soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside. Armadillos!

Another good spot is the spider tunnel you come to in EPL when working on Mr. Grubbs

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.

I organised a guild run to do 35k of what we still needed -- done 10k myself just from testing.

This was post Uldum sheep nerf, so i tested out a few places solo to see how quickly things could be killed and respawned.

I eventually settled on the snake boss room in ZG, and we did it in a little over an hour with 5-13 people -- varied during the course of it.

Respawns were constant, and killing speed was superfast with a macro.

Update: Grouping no longer multiplies kills per critter.

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 :)

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.

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.

If you are Alliance, best place to farm critters is the Deep Run Tram station on the Ironforge side. The rats respawn instantly. Grab some guildies in group and get your achievement in no time. I use my Toxic Wasteling to eat the ones that spawn behind me. Just be considerate of players doing the quest to round up rats.

This will soon require only revered reputation with your guild instead of exalted with patch 4.0.6.

My b/f and I are duo(ing) this achievement in Terrorweb. We are doing 5k kills a day for 10 days. it will take a bit longer.....but worth the wait imo. At the moment, we are at 15k >.>

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