Patch 6.0.1 | Posted: October 14, 2014
This pet was introduced in the 6.0 patch leading up to the release of the expansion, Warlords of Draenor.

Players must complete a quest chain in a revamped level 90+ portion of Blasted Lands, before returning to Stormwind or Orgrimmar to claim the pet.

The Iron Starlette is a pet-sized (and less deadly) version of a Kor'kron Iron Star, a large mechanical weapon used by engineers during the Garrosh Hellscream encounter in the Siege of Orgrimmar raid.

Very powerful combination of Wind-Up + Supercharge. This trivializes any non-boss pet PvE can throw at you. This is also quite powerful in PvP, especially when combined with the speed buff from Powerball. Most of the time you don't actually have to waste a turn doing Supercharge. Doing Superchage also telegraphs what you intend to do and you can be juked(dodged or elemental/magic pet switched in). So you have to try and not be obvious, or if you opponent does not have any avoidance moves.

With Supercharge, Wind-Up, and Demolish, this pet has some huge damage output potential! The P/P breed sounds like the winner in terms of Demolish, but the H/P version will give a little more surviability, and provides a stronger Explode option. With the ability to boost it's own speed, breed such as P/S are less interesting to me.

As of the time I am writing this, the questline to get the iron starlette is still open. I just got it today.

For those who don't see high level mobs in Blasted Lands, there's a dragon in human form just inside and to the right on a hill from Swamp of Sorrows. She will turn the zone from 55+ to 90 and back for you. :) (The level 90 mobs can drop the bronze drake)

Reading the comments now make me want to try an H/H but I have to say a P/P Iron Starlette is amazing beast killer that can do Supercharged Wind-ups of 2.6k against beasts and still have life left in her.  My 'Toni Stark' is one of my favorite 2 Mechanicals (of course I would find out my Starlette was a girl when I named her!)

Freaking LOVE this pet. I was "one shotting" lvl 25 pets as with my lvl 10 Iron Starlette, just in 3 moves! Wind up once, Super charge, Wind up again and BOOM! Definitely a powerful little wheel :)

This pet is amazing.  I whipped my first one (a P/B) up to 25 on the first day and would have loved to have seen my opponants faces when I flattened them on 3 moves. I've since got a P/P & another P/B on an alts and went battling with all 3.  It's risky taking 3 of the same thing, but I have yest to lose a battle and I've done over 20. 

If you were one of the ones sitting there wondering what the hell had hit your poor pets, all I can say is 'Mwah ha ha'!!!

For anyone trying to obtain this pet Post-6.2, you CAN still get the pet. Lv. 90+ required. You'll need to either have completed the beginning phased sequence of Tanaan or not taken The Dark Portal questline at 90 yet. 


For Horde & Alliance: Take the portal in your mage quarter to the Blasted Lands--not Hellfire. You'll be sent to a base camp. There should be quests available from a couple NPCs. Do all of them. Follow the questline until you receive the pet.

These are easy for a level 90+ character to get. It's a matter of completing a pre-WoD quest chain in Blasted Lands. Those quests won't be available if you have a certain version of "The Dark Portal" breadcrumb quest telling you to talk to Archmage Khadgar, but are available if you abandon it. (Another version that was added late doesn't affect things.) Characters who completed it then returned from Draenor can do the quests and get an Iron Starlette, too. AH prices should drop once people know.

I'm starting to wonder if H/H is extremely rare as well.  Just purchased 15 non-caged Iron Starlettes off AH and none of them were H/H.  I've yet to see one even available on the AH, on a high population server.

P/P is the only breed that matter with the Starlette, I have 3 of them and sometimes just use all 3 at once for the ultimate glass cannon. The fact that the windup/supercharge/windup release hits consistently for 1900 to 2700 damage makes this thing insanely OP, especially when you consider it has a free revive racial.

Can confirm pet is still available from quest as of 8/9/2017.  Thing people are failing to mention are the quest starts at the Shattered Landing for the Horde from Thrall (I assume Alliance starts at Shattered Beach Head) which is where the portal to Blasted Lands puts you at.

It seems rediculous to me that this pet comes in multiple breeds, given that, as far as I know, you can only get one per character. You can repeat the quest on alts, but you have to be at least level 90, so finding the breed you want might take a really long time (unless you get lucky).

Picked up 2 of these today. The first was a P/P so I'll keep that one. The second was mixed breed, so that will go up for auction. Now to snag an H/H.

One of my favorite pet battles, part of my 'official' team with Graves and Sentinel's Companion. Great on Menagerie quest and against some Pandaren Spirit's. Besides that, looks amazing!!

The H/H breed is the most rare. I like it the best because no one can kill it in 3 rounds. It will come back to life at round 3 and wreak havok. However the P/P is so deadly with Wind-Up - Supercharge - Wind-Up. That last wind-up does so much damage that it will take out most everything except an elemental.
