Caught a rare about my sixth battle. Didn't even try to use scorched earth.

I have only seen one rare in months of searching! (Suicide ) Finally got lucky enough to get a battle stone and used it on my uncommon one, lol.  She is one of my fave battle pets!

There are two ways to deal with a suicidal pet..  If scorched earth is your problem, bring on pets that have their own weather effects.  The other method is to just surrender and restart the battle until the pet does not have the suicidal-type attack in their list.

After finally getting Exalted and my cloud serpent mount, I was so excited to add one of these to my collection. First one I targeted was a rare! I just couldn't believe it, I'm never this lucky. I checked the comments here to see if that was normal and came across this cute lil' guy's suicidal tendencies. So to everyone who posted about that, THANK YOU! I quickly exited the fight and put my Celestial Dragon out front. Caught on first try!

I hunted for a rare of this little gal, finally found one. I remembered many comments talking about her tendency to commit suicide, so I changed the weather immediately after scorched earth was used. After doing that, it seemed fairly easy to capture with much less chance of having to do the log off trick, which is brilliant btw. I used my Celestial Dragon's weather which allowed for better healing, helped me lower hp for capture (it made my rare captureable) and a few turns to catch. good luck

Hi everyone,

Just thought I would mention what I experienced this morning. I logged in right after rolling restarts and for the first hour or so every second or third wild hatchling battle yeilded a rare.


Maybe just a fluke or a better RNG after reset?

Happy hunting!

Thank you Khlammy!  I never thought to exit WoW with tricky suicidal pets!

Dragonling suicide is enough to make you cry, especially when you've farmed for ages and finally found that elusive rare. A couple suggestions:


a) Note that this dragon uses the lift off ability early in the fight which means you effectively miss a turn. The longer this fight goes, the more damage scorched earth does to the pet. It's important to get the dragon low enough to capture early, so you can maximize your capture attempts.


b) Use the Terrible Turnip pet, and make sure he's in your first slot. His humanoid damage brings the dragon down quickly which gives you more times to attempt a capture before scorched earth ends your fight prematurely. If you have to swap him in, you'll find you lose two turns.


c) If you think you only have one more capture attempt left before the dragon kills itself, don't continue. Exit WoW and relog. The pet will be waiting for you back at full health.

Camped the area all day yesterday (8+ hrs). Only 4 hatchlings spawned- 2 uncommon (gold and jade) and 2 poor.  I did attempt clearing all the other pets and critters. One jade spawned shortly after first clearing, but several hours of it later no others had, so I think it was just a coincidence.

Logged in at same time today and there were dozens up! I got a rare crimson. Still just uncommon for the other 2 but I'm ok with that for now :) 

So don't give up! They are out there. =)

This morning - Sunday at 09.00 am I went there and it was full of hatchlings! They respawned so fast I couldn't even keep up with them, and the area isn't even that big. Farmed for about 09.30, got a rare Crimson and Golden and then at 09.30 it seemed like the respawn rate suddenly slowed down to having to fly around for a few minutes to even see a fightable pet of any kind.

Saw these spawning like crazy while farming rep to get my mounts. The minute I hit exhalted and went to lvl some pets up to capture these beauties they disappeared. Haven't seen one for days :(

Do like I do, I always use the Azure Whelping in all my battles because it is so OP and if the Crimson Hatchling uses scorched earth then changed the weather yourself and that will cancel their weather effect and they won't die on you before you can trap them.

Yes...defently gotta watch out for that scorched earth! I found this guy (rare) shortly after becomming exalted an EVERY time i got him down fare enough to try an crate, he'd use it.



It took me about 6-7 attempts until i finally got th little guy. Heres a little tip. If yours kills itself, just relog. When you log back in he will still be there, alive an of the same quaility!

First time making a comment but did anyone else noticed that none of the Wild Hatchlings have animations? They all just hoover a little above the ground and do not perform the "trick" their counterpart Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling does.

It's red, so it must fly faster.
