By far my favorite Slime when it comes to appearances, i called mine Deploris.

It eats non-battle critters almost non-stop and grows in size up to 3 times, it will continue eating critters after that, but it doesnt grow bigger after 3 times.

But it gets quite big, almost the size of a Hunter pet, which i think is hilarious.

If only Hunters were able to tame aberrations.


As a battle pet its nothing special, there are better breeds out there with the same ability set.

The best thing about this pet is that it occasionally devours critters when they get too close. Other than that; meh.

Slimes have nice DoT moves, and can really hurt birds. But Toxic Wasteling has probably one of the worst breeds of all the slimes. Go with Jade Oozeling for 325 power instead, or Jade Oozeling/Oily Slimeling for a speedier breed.

Corrosion and Acidic Goo really adds up. Creeping Ooze is the most powerful dot outside of Haunt. Both Ooze Touch and especially Expunge really makes fliers dread slime pets.

I've tried to get this for several years now and this time I got it on first try. I don't know if they upped the drop rate or if I just got lucky. Either way I'm happy.

I tried to get this last year with no luck. On Sunday morning my first try on the dungeon and I got it! =D I'm so happy and I've tried to get it to eat dear and cows but it isn't. It also does get condiserbly large when I let it eat rabbits lol

Happy hunting!

After doing this quest every single day it has been available (since it was put in game, not just this year), I finally got my Toxic Wasteling today. I just kind of sat there stunned for a second. I have had crap luck in all the RNG pets since they started the whole one bag per day thing. Maybe 2012 will be my good luck year :)

I don't have this yet, but know several that do. I wish Blizz had made it a different color than the Disgusting Oozeling. Like purple - or pink! :)

This is shaping up to be like the Lump of Coal for me. Done the dungeon every day with no luck.

Update! I finally got the pet. It took a year and a half worth of daily dungeons (21-22 attempts). Be patient, and it will come to you too with a bit of work and some luck... You might also bring some critters out to entice it, I hear it has a voracious appetite! :O

Update: The quest "You've Been Served" is no longer in the game, and Apothecary Hummel no longer directly drops this pet. Instead, you can run the Crown Chemical Company dungeon once a day (during Love is in the Air) to get a Heart Shaped Box; this pet has a chance to be in that box.

This, um, 'adorable' little guy likes to play with critters. Just don't let them get too close.
