For years i've wanted to own one of these tripod pets, pity that they are a lackluster in battle.

And i wish they were a bit bigger too.


It has a strange ability set, i can't really see what i can use it for, other than being a random team filler when leveling it.

If you really want to use a tripod pet like this in battle, then i think Legs (Children's Week version) is better for battle. But even that one is so-so.

Just work in specific comps and battles. Amazing visual, but not good habilities. Even P/B, doesnt work well for me.

After doing all the raid for Raiding with Leashes III, I decided to come back here and give it a try once more. After a rather long fight (tainted guys didn't cooperate) got the lady down and found the elusive egg on her :D

I removed my comment about soloing vashj as a frost mage. No invocation and arcane explosion anymore. Just did it without. Key is now to use mirror images to kill/distract the guys that spam fear. I had no problems killing in 6.02

Very small differences between the different breeds. Laser can be really good in Darkness and especially against Death Adders that just wondered what just happend. But if you are not facing those conditions you just nerfed your own damage by not taking Focused Beams, tough choice. Surge of Power is a great finisher but be wary of the recharge. Not really a fan of either Gravity(second attack on same opponent does no damage!) or the barrier(blocks you too). Vs birds good, else it feels weak.

The trinket that drops off rattleskew on timeless isle makes this fight a breeze to solo, been farming the pet each week to sell on the ah.

For those of you who are interested in breeds, this pet comes in three breeds, B/B, P/B and H/B.  The P/B is the preferred breed according to this excellent top comment on Wowhead.  This pet is also required to complete the Raiding With Leashes II: Attunement Edition to get the reward Tito's Basket, who just happens to be Dorothee's little pet dog from the Karazhan opera event. :)

So I've done this every week since it's came out on at least 3 toons and still no drop. I'm ready to pull my hair out!

Gear helps! The mechanics listed in other posts are accurate, but a bump in ilevel from one week to the next put me over the top.  So, if she is giving you trouble, grab a friend or boost your damage output so that you burn her down fast in stage 3.  Also, be at full health with no striders or naga alive before turning off last pylon.  Good Luck!  Oh, 482 Ret Paladin.

I've been timing a lot of these new pets to see when the animation occurs. In this case, it's exactly every minute after you summon it. So not as random as one could think, and as for the "AoE" fear; in my case it has only feared 1 of the nearby critters at a time.

Edit: For the first time now, it feared 2 critters at a time.

Got this today, first run, second week of SSC, thanks to a guild mate of mine for helping me take on Lady Vash, pretty easy keeping her stacks down from the water elementals with a hunter and Titan's warrior. Unique skin color from Legs but the same model.

For Shadow Priests:


1. Glyph of Inner Fire to help you survive. I only switched to Inner Will when I noticed a Tainted Elemental was up and needed to get there fast.


2. Take down Coilfang Elites and Coilfang Striders every time they spawn, immediately. Use whatever instant spells and DoTs you have on the Striders, and they may only fear you once - if at all.


3. Use Halo on CD for little adds - otherwise don't worry about them.


Food buff and flasks. Good luck! :)

Ack, too little room for the comment I wanted, so here are some tips beyond what Kirnsten said:


1) If you don't need anything from other bosses, skip them; you no longer need to kill them all for Vashj's console to operate.

2) Phase 1 lasts until Vashj is 70%.  Save DPS boosts with more than a 3 min  cooldown.

3) In phase 2 you disable the pylons with Tainted Cores from the Tainted Elementals that spawn at the platform base.

4) All pylons down starts phase 3, blow cooldowns.

Killed Lady Vashj solo as feral. No pet droped. Seems pet drop chance similar to vanilla raids. 

 Tips for boss:

1) get DBM for TBC;

2) If Strider up - kill it immidiatly to prevent chain fear;

3) meantime try to kill as many elementals and nagas as you can:

4) make targeting macro for tainted elementals;

5) when boss free blow all cds and have fun:) 


About pet - most uninteresting pet from this new raid drops (for me at least)

Couldn't finish this boss as a [90] shadow priest. Need to work on my mechanics maybe. Made a macro to target Naga, Strider and Tainted's which helps.  Consistently getting through Phase 2 but get blown up in Phase 3.

Unless ranged of some kind, or perhaps tank spec (so self heals) I recommend getting a friend to help you with downing the boss that can drop this pet. The chain fearing made me want to rip out my hair, not to mention the slows and the dmg buff stacks...


If you want a pet with similiar abilities/looks, stone Legs from children's week.

It is unknown how Lady Vashj empowers these Fen Striders with their mind-bending powers; even at an early age this creature shows significant psychic ability.
