Update: I made a Tiket, got the typical auto replays, delete your addons and wtf folder, look at inet. 3 times I replayed but still the the answer was no use.


I have been camping Elwynn Forest for Black Lamb, tryed with a Horde (main) and an alliance, but no spawn. I don´t have it and need it for achievement.

Absolutely no idea why this pet is rated so poorly for battle, Chew, Combeback, and Stampede, along with being a critter with H/P high health and power, means it can't be stopped. This pet will straight up 1 to 1 trade with most pets besides humanoids, if not outright win based on its sheer health, power, and moveset. Also takes out the first 2 pets of Dundley Stickyfingers (SL-Maldraxxus daily) with ease...literally 1v2's a current expansion daily pet master...what more do you need

I'm not certain P/S exists on this pet in the wild. I checked for a week straight without finding any, but then decided to start capturing them. Within a couple fights one changed to P/S after I captured it. I told another player to try it, and within a few minutes theirs changed to P/S as well.

The comment about not being able to rename your Black Lamb isn't true. I just tried it and it worked fine. If that did problem did exist, then Blizzard has since fixed it.


I had the worst luck getting a P/S breed. It took me multiple tries over multiple days going through the whole forest looking for the lamb with the breed I want. For some reason some of the lambs' breeds showed up as ??? but when I would capture them I could see the breed, and one of the ??? turned out to be P/S finally

So... funny thing - if you rename your Black Lamb to something, you can NOT change it back... because "this name contains mature language" (black, I'm presuming).


Way to go, Blizzard... you've risen to the point of trolling yourself.

Finaly after routing elwynn forest for a black lamb 4 times killing every  black lamb avail, i got my rare, so just realised, as ime not much of a patient person, persistance pays off :) whooop.

This was the first rare I ever encountered. At that time, I didn't realize that rarity was random; I just figured Black Lambs were rare. In any case, I caught him, and I might level him up as part of the achievement because he was my first.

Lots of breeds, so make sure you grab the one that fits your style. I went P/S, 289 power and speed. Hoof if you want a solid attack against undead. My favourite use is Chew and Stampede, surprisingly many does not use avoidance. This combination really destroys Decoys. It does ok, can often go pretty even damage wise and will probably leave one opponent with Shattered Defense debuff. Soothe is pure nonsense and Comeback is pretty crap as well.

I was doing the Eastern Kingdoms Safari Achievement, decided to log on to my warrior on alliance side. The very first Black Lamb I encountered was Rare. H/B.

If you find that you got the bug where your Eastern Kingdoms Pet tamer achievement isn't recognizing that you have the Black Lamb OR the Wharf Rat, DO NOT release them if you already have them.  Just go capture another one, the bug has been fixed.

I don't see many comments about trouble finding rares among the others. I haven't had any trouble finding black lambs to fight all over Elwynn Forest but I have made a very thorough circuit fighting them all at least 7 times and partials circuits when I had to cut my time short at least 3 times and after killing what feels like hundreds I have yet to see a blue level.

I have caught about 5 lambs and I have battled nearly 100 of them so far and I can't seem to find any lamb with the 12,22 breed. The only ones I got so far was either 8,18 or 10,20.

Does anyone know if the 12,22 breed is still available?

after reviewing the reports of problems with the safari achieve, i released the lamb i had and captured another (it was a rare!) and it did count toward the achievement.

Same prob my lamb didnt count for ach - i contacted Blizz and have been told that "We are aware of an issue affecting this pet causing it not to track in the Eastern Kingdoms Safari achievement, and our QA team are working on a fix at this time. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused, but our QA team have been able to correct the issue so that newly caught pets will count towards the achievement."

Hope this helps out:-)

Chimeretsu, I have the same problem.  I have tamed two Black Lambs but it has been not counted in the acievement.  I filed a ticket with support and I'm still waiting to hear back.

Offspring of the black sheep, the black lamb is only found in the forests of Elwynn.
