This pet had a 100% chance to drop from Tenris Mirkblood, a temporary elite raid boss. The quest Chamber of Secrets leads players to this mob, although players did not need the quest to fight him. This boss was only available during the Scourge Invasion event leading up to the launch of Wrath of the Lich King. The window of opportunity to obtain this pet was about 3 weeks.

Tenris Mirkblood was found in Karazhan in the previously locked Servant's Quarters located up the stairs just past Attumen the Huntsman. It took a raid group of between 5 and 10 players to bring him down. Note that ALL players in the raid were able to loot this pet.

They won't bring it back but they should at least make it cageable so the folks that don't collect can sell to those of us that do.

This, the "Tranquil" Mechanical Yeti and the Spirit of Competition were my first pets(also team 1 to level to 25). Unfortunately they nerfed reckless strike ... It was so cool to spam it, then ress and spam more haha.

This pet should be at least tradeable. I have a spare saved just in case! Some lucky person will get one if they do :)

The report that the Vampiric Batling has been seen on BMAH was probably somebody mistaking it for the Tirisfal Batling, it is unlike blizzard to make event pets available outside of the event. I am also in the boat that I was unable to collect this pet :(

When this pet was available I wasn't high enough yet to go on the boss fight; I had just been introduced to WoW a few months before. I'm the one who told my guildies about it though and they all got one. I'm hopeful that some day I will be able to add it to my collection.. Please, Blizz.. give us poor shleps who missed out a second chance!

This was one of the first trio of pets I got up to 25 (it was paired with a panther cub and a sinister squashling), and it remains one of the pets I use as a go-to for tough pet battles due to the fact that it's undead (so you're guaranteed at least two rounds even if the other pet goes first and one-shots you, as long as you aren't stunned) and has a high-damage ability in Reckless Strike.

I am one of the lucky few who got this pet. None of us knew it existed and did the raid just for the new event boss. Then low and behold we each got the pet, and I won the Arcanite Ripper XD

Even with pet battles out it's still not tradeable, sad panda moment.

I have such great memories of our GM putting together raid groups of different guildies every day until everyone in the guild had this pet.

Upset that you can't get this pet or other unavailable ones? Well in MoP, because of pet battles, any pet can be sold through the AH! I'd reccomend saving up some G though, cuz they're probably gonna be pretty expensive.

I remember I was naked, fishing in Org (I had been for a bit over a week) trying to catch Old Crafty, when I got an invite from my guild master. I had no idea what was happening, but went along for the ride, and was very happy.

Heh, when I found out about this guy, I dragged our guildies into Karazhan at about 10 am on a Sunday. Half the people didn't know what we were doing there, but were happy with the result.

This pet makes me sad, I finally got people to help me obtain it. I transferred servers and it was gone, I talked to a GM and they said they could find no record of me getting it and then shortly there after the "Vampire Hunter" achievement came out and I knew I'd never get this guy again :(

OK, in Icecrown Citadel, one of the bosses is a re-fight of stronger versions of 3 San'Layn Princes most of us have fought before: Prince Taldaram, Prince Valanar, and Prince Keleseth. Maybe Tenris Mirkblood will come back too in Hard Mode or something, and then we would have another chance at this Awesome Batling.

I like this pet way more than the other batling, and since this one drops from one of the coolest event bosses of all times, who wouldnt agree? i would however like if they added some special effects to its mouth like blood dripping down it's fangs or just some spooky aura.
