Patch 7.2.5 | Posted: June 13, 2017
This pet is looted from deep within a cave located on the northern coast of Winterspring. The cave, Cavern of Consumption, has many obstacles that players must bypass.

Using a number of consumables for specific puzzles within the cavern will eventually lead to the pet. More information can be found here.

Farmed for 14 hrs to get the Potion recipes and the mats.  Got 4 of the the next day.  Follow the instructions on wowhead and you should have no problems.  I led 2 guildies in and only one of them glitched out (luckily I had extra pots for them). It is possible for multiple people to loot the egg at the same time.

What a great looking pet, I had a little trouble with my settings so the cave was way to dark and I kept porting out. When I finally figured out how to brighten my suroundings I had to re-do all my pots. got lucky and got the pet in the end.

Don't jump. Ever. If it's the tiniest bit of a fall, don't do it. You will get ported out. Have extras, in case you need to rebuff because you got ported out. It's hard, man.

Word of advice, buy doubles of everything and make sure you didnt forget anything before entering the cave. I forgot the scroll of intellect and basically had to start all over because stuff start wearing off by the time I had a guildy make one for me and put it in the gbank. Thank god the dark iron buff last an hour but the rest were falling off.

I love it! But why is it a critter when the other two are dragonkin? Kinda strange.

Got mine after an epic journey. Got the potions from the AH and then had to go to get the rest. An interesting pet with a wide variety of abilities, in a critter.

Can only be done once per toon, the egg will not show up if you have gotten the pet on that toon already.

As far as I know, there is no alternative to the pug, because the princess costume you need is specifically for the pug only. As far as a group effect, I don't know.

Is there an alternative to the Pug?  Don't have it...

Can this be a group effort?

So I'm wondering if you're able to get another one after the daily reset(maybe weekly?). I have the mats to do the puzzles again but I'm not sure it's worth the risk. I'd have to go camp Scotty again. :(

Finally got it after a nightmare farming the recipes on my low level mage, after a solid gankfest non stop. Then had to refarm the dire brew the next day after a bug caught me in the cavern coming down in the ogre suit. I'm wondering if anyone has used the dark iron toy to transform and get in, however the second time on Day 1, I stealthed easily past that same watcher without the dark Iron buff. It's dark in the cavern, use a personal spotlight before entering to save falling off the path xx

If it's not normally found on Azeroth and it's coming in the Legion expansion, it seems like Argus is the obvious thought here.

This unique species of faerie dragon is not usually found on Azeroth.
