Mists of Pandaria
Patch 5.0.1 | Posted: September 25, 2012
The in-game tooltip for this pet disappeared for a brief time during Shadowlands. It was unknown whether or not this pet was still obtainable. However, during a later content patch, the pet was found on the BMAH as an item up for bid.

The Thundering Serpent Hatchling has a chance to drop from Warlords of Draenor version of Unclaimed Black Market Container, which can be purchased from the Black Market Auction House.

In Mists of Pandaria, guilds were able to unlock this pet by completing the Challenge Conquerors: Gold - Guild Edition achievement. However, once Warlords of Draenor was released, the Thundering Serpent Hatchling was removed from the guild vendor and relocated to the Black Market Auction House.

For those that have seen it on BMAH (never seen yet) is it BOE/BOP or BOA?


No responses but I finally found it on BMAH with the help of friends, bought for 525k and its BOP, not cageable. Wanted to share just in case others were seeking the same questions.

I saw this pet in the BMAH several times after 9.1.5 -- but it feels like it has not reappeared for several months. Can anyone comment, if it might have been removed again, or if you have recently seen it in the BMAH on your server?

can confirm it can be in the BMAH as a stand alone item. it was showing twice in one week recently, but they both went over 5 million gold and i lost both :(


i don't think it would also be in the random bag but i could be wrong

After being out of the game since WoD, this pet is now appearing in the Black Market Auction House as of 9.1.5.

I don’t own this pet yet it shows here that I DO o_O I was so surprised when saw it here so I thought “OMG, maybe I acquired it somehow somewhere someday”. I did quick check in my Pet Journal, unfortunately he is not there :(. Glitch ???

My pet is Rare, but is showing on here as common, I don't have any common pets, including him.  I know we had to manually add him, but is there a way to change him to what I have him as now, Rare?

Odd ... I own 2 of these lil guys yet he no longer shows up as collected for me.  I had named one Flash and the other Gordon - so I went back to the default name and re-imported.  Still not showing as collected. Perhaps it is just a glitch - hopefully it will be corrected soon.

I really wish this pet were blue so that we could have a serpent hatchling in every color! Or maybe Blizz will add an "Azure/Cobalt Serpent Hatchling" as an achievement pet?!?

Don't hold your breath on seeing a positive post on this.  It's in the containers and most folks are smart enough to not waste their money.

Has anyone ever seen them at the Black Market?  The Undermine Journal has listings for dozens of pets, but not this one.



ETA: I think the only way to get them to change this is to fill the Suggestion box and maybe implore a few Twitters.  There's plenty of 'loose' pets one can get from the BMAH, no reason this can't be.  I asked a GM about it, and got a completely copy&paste answer about maybe being in an Unclaimed box.  Thanks, dude.

This pet is now only available through the Black Market, as soon as I see it up, I will report the initial bidding price.

Finally got around to making an alt for a guild that had the pet unlocked, went and quested up until I hit revered, then headed to the vendor -- only to see no pet. It looks like it's been retired, so if you don't have it, you most likely have missed out completely. :( I've put in a ticket to ask, just in case, but I won't have my hopes up. :c -- ETA: Yeah, according to the WCP forums, it's retired from the guild vendors and only available on the Black Market Auction House.

Wasn't going to attempt this because I figured the rep grind would be to much, but being able to send an illustrious tabard cross realm and using a new DK I was done in a few hours. Thanks to the Magical Menagerie guild for invite, look forward to staying on!
