Does anyone know if these escort quests are still available in BoA?

In fact it is identical to a P/S Robo-Chick with same habilities and same stats.

Oddly, I have two accounts on the same account.


Account one....592 Unique, 615 Total.

Account two....594 Unique, 617 Total.


Account two shows two of these chickens which means that they are not account wide and duplicates are apparently unique!

Slightly above avarage health and power, with nice 289 speed. This is a solid mechanical pet. Peck if you face lots of aquatics, otherwise Batter is a better choice. Especially combined with Overtune, this can really put the hurt on speedy pets(say hi Death Adder and fliers). Always nice to do a Wind-Up when you can't do anything else and then release the pain. Just watch out for elementals of course, and it does not have any defensive moves(good offence makes for best defense). Great pet.

The hardest of the 3 pre quests to get is the Hinterlands. Wowhead will show that turtles drop him if you look at their locator map, when in fact all creatures in the Hinterlands will drop him. I ended up nuking all the trolls in Jintha Alor for a few hours until the Beacon dropped.

Using a macro from wowhead comments about the 3 quests, I checked each of my characters and discovered that most had done 1 of the 3 quest chains. Only one character had done 2 of the quest chains. The Hinterlands drop rate seems horrible. Tanaris may not be bad, but it is so full of PvP these days, it's hard to quest.  Luckily, my druid only needed the Feralas quest chain and got the drop in the Yeti caves - probably the 20th yeti killed.  Not too bad after using the macro.

I finally found the last 2 of the quest drops i needed to get this pet while doing a scavenger hunt for my guild. I was so excited but when I learned the pet i was vastly disappointed to see it was only a uncommon pet. Well, here is hoping to find a Battle-Stone to up its quality.

It's nice that these are BoU but I accidentally learned a second one (had farmed it to sell it) and because they're not cageable, I can't get rid of the duplicate unless I release it. =/

With the amount of hazzle to get this companion, you'd think they would make the companion rarity for pet battles into blue.

I had a LOT of issues with these quests. The Hinterlands one glitched and I had to contact customer support to restart the quest. Then I still didn't get it and contacted them again, and they told me I never got the Feralas quest, which I know I did. For those of you who have issues, you're not alone. Contact customer support and if nothing else they can help tell you which quest you're missing.

You need to do all 3 quest lines with the beacons before you get the pet. Just wanted to clear that up for you :)

This pet was ridiculous to get, post-cata. I got it on my ex-main quickly pre-cata, but last week, it took me 5 days (3 in Hinterlands). Feralas was quick, as listed yeti drop it in a few kills. Tanaris took 100+ kills outside ZF & then I did 2 full runs of ZF before it dropped. Hinterlands was absurd. 200+ kills, then did ALL the quests, then 300+ more kills. Went to BB, showed that I didn't meet requirements for OOX of my own, but turned in tanaris quest, and I got the pet!! Confusing..

Gnarl Leafbrother dropped 00x-22 FE for me in Feralas, co-ords 68.5/47.5, or halfway between Dire Maul and Camp Mojache for those who don't have co-ords.
He was the first kill in the zone for me.

A highborn poltergeist attacked me in Darkmist Ruins in Feralas. Surprise! That was the final escort quest, coming about a year after I'd given up farming for it.

You can still get this pet in 4.1
The Shattering changed the Ferelas quest, if you did the old one it no longer counts and you'll need to do the new one before you can get the pet.

Once done;
You may also get an error about not meeting the requirements while claiming the pet (I did) just accept the quest again and it should go through awarding the pet.

Arwin, I just got this pet today, and this series of quests was very glitchy for me. I would just keep trying to talk to Oglethorpe Obnoticus until he gives it to you. It took a long time for him to actually hand over the pet, for some reason.

I'm neutral with SWC and have done all the escorts but I'm still not offered my chicken. Do I need to be friendly to pick up a quest? I was able to turn-in at neutral, seems to me I should be able to be given a quest. /sigh

Wondering which OOX quests you've done?

Macro 1:

/run f,z=CreateFrame('frame'),{[485]='The Hinterlands',[351]='Tanaris',[2766]='Feralas'};f:RegisterEvent('QUEST_QUERY_COMPLETE')

Macro 2:

/run local s,t;f:SetScript('OnEvent',function() t=GetQuestsCompleted();for c,v in pairs(z) do if t[c] then s='' else s=' not' end print('You have'..s,'found OOX in',v) end end);QueryQuestsCompleted()

Press the 1st macro, then the 2nd, the game will tell which OOX quests you've done. (Macro author unknown.)

I got the first two beacons easily, but did some annoying grinding to get the final one. Was so happy when I finally got it, completed it and picked up my new mechanical chicken!
The first non-purchase pet I actively pursued, and got me addicted to collecting.

Not to worry; the combat mechanisms and homing logic have been disabled on this unit, I think. --Oglethorpe Obnoticus
