This is a pet that i have mixed feelings about, i love Ahn'Qiraj and i love the way this pet looks, it is just a pity that its so tiny.

Ive always wanted an Ooze pet like this, but its small size make it kind of anti-climactic to run around with it, Toxic Wasteling is much more fun.

I hope Blizzard will make this pet twice as big, or give it the Toxic Wasteling growth animation. Otherwise it is a bit bland.


It is a decent battle pet though, but not something to rely on.

After a long time ignoring that boss because I didn't know how to kill him, last week I finally looked it up and done it on my 2 toons. Didn't drop on both tries. So yesterday I did it again and now I have two of them :D 


If you still ignore that boss, look up on youtube, there are methods for every class, even for casters.

I took a DK friend into AQ to help me with the frost part of the fight, and the pet dropped on the first kill. With two level 90's this guy goes down FAST. We switched to our alts to try our luck again, my Shaman used Frostbrand weapon and Frost Shock which worked to get him frozen. No pet, though I would say getting him on the first shot was pretty darn lucky! Bring a friend if you are having issues killing him once he is frozen, good luck!

Took my level 90 hunter (ilvl 527) with a Chimaera pet. I just went through my normal rotation, I did not have to use a melee weapon to defeat Viscidus. The fight was short and simple. This was the first time with a hunter, my other kills where with a shaman (no pet drop), and I got the pet. I was very lucky, this being only my fourth kill.

I see a lot of the same stuff about how to solo the boss, but relatively nothing beyond the battle rating on the main page of how this guy stacks up in battle. Is he something I should just be aiming to collect for collection's sake, or is he actually worth leveling to use in battle? Why or why not?

Finally Soloed this guy as an arms Warrior, used Weapon Enchant Elemental Force and DPS'd him down to 1 and froze him, then popped blade storm and melee'd the rest of the way to shattered! Although the pet did not drop.. :-( but now I know how to solo him! I did get my second Anubisath Idol though! Still looking for the mini mindslayer to drop as well... they will be mine! (insert evil laugh here)

I ran through the raid once and didn't get it. Then on the second rin I got it!!  I was so thrilled. Somone said about trying to frreze the boos to kill him but the boss already did that. You might just get the pet when you see a lot of loot and it also comes when you least ecpect it. Happy hunting!

Not sure if this has anything to do with the pet dropping from the boss but the first couple times i killed him, he didn't disperse into multiple globules.  The time i got the pet he did.  So maybe the flavor text, "This small globule didn't make it back to Viscidus in time to re-form." is a clue to getting it.

So what am I doing wrong?  I've solo'd this guy about 15 times so far and he NEVER drops the dang pet!  Got all the other pets from this instance but this little guy NEVER drops!

This one is really cool in so many ways!


I wished I had caught the tameable oozling (was a nsc ooze which was tameable with same look like this pet) a while ago with my hunter, but I missed it - so sad about that.


Dont know why, but I named mine Ryanoozling...


As a hunter (and some other classes) you can buy a weapon which deals additional frost damage in Brunnhildar (Brunnhildar Bow) to kill viscidus.


Have fun with this fellow!

Caught this fella a while ago farely easily with my monk. I just dual wielded w/ Elemental Force x2 and it worked fine.


As far as priests go (keep seeing priests complaining about not being able to solo him). Just spam Mind Spike and pop a haste potion when he freezes and you should be able to get him down with no issues. Mind Spike deals Shadow/FROST damage which works fine to kill Viscidus.


(Had a friend attempt this with his priest and can confirm that it works.)

Soloed as SPriest and got him on first try.  Used old transmog dagger with MOP elemental force enchant and my Barov Family trinket I had in my bank.  Worked perfectly although I froze him to early and had to freeze him again them wait for my trinket to reset (10 min) to finish him off.  Couldn't crack him with my fiend.

Just killed this boss as a shadow priest. Picked up a cheap green dagger on the AH and enchanted it with Deathfrost.



On my first attempt, once I got him frozen I popped shadowfiend and started meleeing him. I failed.



I ran out of the room to reset him, pulled up my Argent Gruntling and grabbed the C'Thun trinket and the Netherwing trinket and tried again. Froze him, started meleeing, and popped shadowfiend, C'Thun, and Netherwing. Worked just fine! Unfortunately the pet didn't drop, but there's always next week.

I can confirm that a ele shaman ( I would assume an agility shaman could to) can solo this boss. Frost shock for about 3 minutes. Pop your earth ele and hero after he is frozen to get the hits on to shatter him. Just stop casting and auto attack while hero and ele are going. done it two weeks in a row now. no pet yet. only one left in there I need ><.

I was reading on Wowhead and someone else (Brand) said this:

The Mists of Pandaria level enchant Enchant Weapon - Elemental Force can be used to freeze Viscidus, as the elemental damage done counts as frost damage.

I am a lvl 90 Ret Paladin, I tried this it took some time but I did manage to down Viscidus solo!  However; still trying to get the pet to drop!

This small globule didn't make it back to Viscidus in time to re-form.
