This pet drops off of Jadefang, a rare spider located within the Crumbling Depths caves of Deepholm. To gain access to the rarespawn requires the use of an item provided from the Therazane faction daily, Underground Economy. See our Community Guide: Tiny Shale Spider for details.

With a bit of ingenuity, engineers can also utilize Nitro Boosts to reach Jadefang. The belt enchant will sometimes malfunction and launch the player into the air, offering another way up into the rarespawn's cave.

This pet can be farmed in bulk (for selling/trading) if you can spare an 80+ alt. While getting to the spot where the rare spawns requires a certain daily quest, you can just camp your alt there. Check for the rare spawn each time you log on or off, and you'll get a bunch of these with minimal effort.

I didn't know about this pet until the rare warning came up for Jadefang, and I looked up information about it after wandering the Crumbling Depths Caves in vain. By the time I figured out how to get up into that alcove (I used the bomb method), Jadefang was gone (killed I guess).  So I simply logged there and checked back the next morning and there she was! The pet was a drop after killing Jadefang.

Just got him. Camped a couple hours last night, logged off...when i came back there she was.


I did the Therazane quest string long ago so was unable to use the bomb to get up there.  I did the turn the wifi of and on trick to fly all the way in.  Worked perfectly.  Feel like a cheater...alittle.

I feel kind of bad. I've only just come back to WoW after a couple of years away, so I've been collecting loads of pets, and today was my first chance at the TSS. There was a night elf hunter (I'm Horde) in the cave, trying and trying to boost up to the cave - obviously after Jadefang as a pet. I used the technique in the guide, got straight up in one go, killed Jadefang and got the TSS. Oh well, at least she'll know how to get up there for next time.

This pet is actually easier to get than Pebble . Once you have Underground Economy (and get the bomb) its just a matter of when Jadefang spawns. Underground economy is offered when Pebble is not. Once you have the bomb line your self up with your back to the cave and put the bomb in front of you. Spawns usually every 3-4 hours. You also can find a chest in the cave with Green armor. You must have NPC scan add-on and delete the Cache folder if you saw him before but didn't get him.

if you play on a device with a wifi on/off button this pet can be gotten with out rep grinding! go to the start of the cave and mount/flight form and then turn off and then right back on your wifi and move quick to the cave, it might take a couple of tries but it should work! its how i got mine!

When you've got the quest it is really easy to get up there. I just started farming this yesterday and got it today! My method was basically just afking in the spawning spot while watching a movie or doing other stuff.. I had to mess with enemy players every once in a while but it finally spawned and I was able to get this awesome little guy. Good luck to you all! :)

I managed to blast myself up on the ledge with him by accident, didn`t even know he was in that room. He is cute sure, but a bit tiny for my taste.

I found this video helpful since I wasn't entirely sure where I needed to be. I waited a week before the quest ever showed up and saw my npc scan go off 3 times before the daily underground economy was available from ricket(inside the crumbling depths) (you cannot see her when the quest isn't available). You cannot track her from above as a hunter or with any buff. You have to into the cave to find her. After I got the quest I followed the instructions!

Got this little cutie tonight. I camped him for two days (minus sleeping time of course) while tabbed out in Diablo 3. Warning though if you're using npcscan. Mine didn't know he was close (I even checked settings) so it never warned me, I just happened to alt tab to find him standing on-top of me. On my server he is still camped, so I got lucky =D

I'm thinking this is easier to get now, what with the majority of people interested in pets having it already. I saw Jadefang just after Cata hit on an alt but couldn't get to her unfortunately. Then I stopped playing for 10 months and after a week or two of being back I noticed I still had the quest bombs in my bag and decided to go check, she was cached in my NPC scan so I just boomed my way up and she was there :)

Sat there for about 13-hours and was getting tired, so went to lay down. A few minutes later I come back to PC and notice I was logged out. I log back in and NPC_Scan went off. There it was right in front of me. I tamed it first, this was around 6pm server time. I decided to stay in area to get the pet next. I called it a nite and the next day after a maintenance update I logged in and it showed up around 4am server time. Read it was on a 6-24 hour re-spawn timer, but unsure.

The elemental shale spider is no true arachnid, but it has durability and ferocity that make it feared even in Deepholm.
