Not sure what kind of luck I'm having to day but like half of all the Slimelings I'm finding here (On Ravenholdt) are all Rare. Not sure what a good breed is but they all seam to be H/P or B/B.

Not really important but if you want to name it something, name it after an oil spill. I named mine Lakeview Gusher :)

I have a rare H/H, and it's pretty much become my favorite pet.  Other pets may look so much nicer than this glob of black, but this little guy consistantly takes down whole 3 pet parties without need to switch.

I have an H/S rare that I spent a few hours farming until I got the rare one.  She was worth the time - I've been using her for many of my elite pet battles and her CorrosionExpungeAbsorb is a Flying Machine Killer.  Just watch the timing for when you have a bird that does Lift-Off some other similiar spell.  Don't want to waste Expunge on those - if you do it right you can get killer hit points from Expunge.

I found a B/B rare at 62.0, 15.3 Borean Tundra, Server - Draenor EU, 10.05 CET.  This pet is really useful to tame since there are not many easy to obtain wild pets in the magic family.  I used a level 19 P/B Nexus Whelping to start the fight but had to rotate between Silky Moth S/S and Anodised Robo-Cub H/P to successfully capture him without killing him.  He was a fight that required patience with the team I had, I really recommend bringing Terrible Turnip for this battle.

Just captured a rare level 20 in Borean Tundra at 63.11, 36.62 (Scalding Pools). It was accompanied by a crab and a Borean Marmot. Good luck!

The Oily Slimeling is a really powerful pet. Get a rare one and lvl it to 25 and you got yourself a real killer machine. Its "Corrosion" and "Acidic Goo" are really strong attacks against most pet families. I used my rare Oily Slimeling in several of the hardest pet battle fights in the "Pandaren Spirit Tamer" quests and in the "Beasts Of Fable" quests. I also use this most of the time boosting new pets that I lvl up.

So twice now I've caught this pet with an Attack bonus. Both were level 19 after I caught them. As soon they hit 20, the Attack bonus is gone. Has anyone else had that problem?

These were pretty painful. When I finally saw and captured one a few months ago it was poor quality. Each and every time I happened to see one afterwards was also poor. Untiil today.


Bliz had to perform a server restart so I made my way over there. After the restart the pools were full of these guys. The very first one was a rare.

Been working on these for a bit now. Lots here at 10am server time, but ~20 fights and all are poor or common! Gonna keep trying! But early-mid morning seems to be a good time for them. Good luck collectors!

flew around the area and found 3...all poor quality but caught one anyways. They didn't respawn so I checked back a few hours later and there was a dozen or was a rare.

 To the guy that crit and killed his rare...Terrible Turnip

Gallatyn, I heard it sugguested that when you are flying you see your "realm", but when you land you are phased into the Cross Realm Zone (More people to party with, less pets available)

Is there some sort of phasing going on here? I fly over and see oily fledlings for about a second...then they phase out. I've been flying this area for an hour...I'm the only one here...and I can't find ANY spawns. Nada. Zip.

This is one really good battle pet. I use it whenever I boost my low level ones, as well as during PvP pet battles. 


Absorb - Corrosion - Arctic Goo 


Those are the abilities I use - usually Arctic Goo first, then Corrosion and Absorb a couple of times to heal myself. That setup is more survivability, so things take longer to kill, but worth it if you're leveling your small pets by defeating battle trainers. 


This for sure is my favorite battle pet at the moment.

Caught my rare ljust about 6:30pm server time.  The first time I was hunting through the poos last night I couldn't find a single Slimeling in any of the pools.  I was popping back through the area several times after 11pm server.  I'm wondering if they tend to spawn more during daylight hours rather than night time hours.

I found two last night at around 8 PM Server time; the first was white and the second blue! Annnnd... then I critted and killed it. And cried a little. I haven't found any since. Good luck with this one, everyone! :)

These living blobs of ooze lack even the most rudimentary form of intelligence, but that doesn't mean they can't be your friend.
