I have an idea for great idle animation. It definitely SHOULD burn to the ashes and then recreate from those ashes. That would probably be the best mini-pet animation ever!

I love having him beside me specially when I'm on my Shadow form...together we are the light and the darkness >_<
Definitely one of the best pets ever.

Don't look so smug. I know what you're thinking. But taking the Ashes of A'lar was merely a setback. Did you honestly believe I would have only one Phoenix at my disposal? Hahahaha... Oh no, no, no, A'lar was only an instrument, a stepping stone to a much better Phoenix. It has all led to this... and this time, you shall not interfere!

With the latest patch the "Immolate + Conflagrate" combo doesn't do as much damage. Still a very nice looking pet but not as strong as it used to be.

I'm not sure if they upped the drop rate.  My wife & I breezed through in about 5 minutes per run.  2 pets in 4 runs, though no mount.  What doesn't make sense is why a phoenix does not have a rebirth ability?  It just seems it would fit.

After 22 runs between two characters I finally have this pet to add to my collection. I've been doing it once per day on heroic to avoid burnout and have a chance for the mount as well (which is still being stubborn). At 90 you can avoid all trash minus the trash in the room with Selin, since he pulls them when aggro'd. If you skip the pack immediately before Kael'thas he won't go through his whole RP scene about Tempest Keep - saves you a few seconds of time.

Depending on your class it may be a good idea to solo Heroic Magister's Terrace for a chance at the pet and mount as a Demo Lock i did it quite a few times with a healer but kept losing it to them when it droped so i started soloing it and managed to get both the pet and mount.

Can be great against Blingtron on Celestial Tournament.

This was my first 'favorite' pet... Still in my top 10.  It took me 23 runs to get it, but it was worth it. :)

I've noticed that it doesn't ignore weather effects like it should as an elemental. At least with the -Scorched Earth- effect. 



Update.. Yes mine WAS  recieving damage from weather effects :T thank you, I can read the pet battle combat log just fine.


I contacted a GM and they told me it was indeed a bug that I had stumbled acrossed, it has now been fixed and my hatchling ignores weather as it should.

Hahahaha, I got mine out of a bribe bag for healing a heroic. Zero effort phoenix hatchling for the win!


Fast, and sturdy with the self-heal. The damaging elemental shield also works while the pet is on the backline - cast it immediately, and then right before switching out for added hilarity!

Been farming this lil' guy for well over a year on and off (mostly off...). Got serious this weekend and did H mode every day (for a shot at the White Hawkstrider as well). Last fight I slowed down and let kael spawn his Phoenix pet and actually dotted Kael and Phoenix down just as I got levitated to my death. Returned to loot body and there was the hatchling! U can pretty much run front to back and engage only bosses and a few mobs if you;re careful. Very soloable!

Decided to farm this this morning as I liked the 1/16 drop rate! Did one HC, and maybe 11-12 normals and it dropped! Got me my 150 achi too so got this beautiful guy and my Celestial Dragon all at once, was thrilled! :D

Just a quick note, do not leave these little guys unattended in any way shape or form while you're in chapels or churches. Mine ate a month's supply of incense while my back was turned and I STILL get dirty looks whenever I go into Light's Hope Chapel!

I learned about this pet a long time ago, before my character was high enough level to go after it, and then I completely forgot it existed. I immediately rushed off to try my luck today on Heroic and was lucky enough to get it on my first try. I've had a lot of good luck lately so I'm worried it's going to come back to bite me sometime soon.

Just to clear up the latest comment (user: Kendrah), the pet drops in both Normal and Heroic Magister's Terrace from Kael'thas.

I like to use immolate and immolation then swap pets. I love pets with dots and this one is particularly my favorite because it is also our guild pet.

Had been running this instance for the Reputation achieves when I got this. Last 3 runs in here, I saw 2 Hatchlings and 2 Hawkstriders.
