So my, err, patience? okie, persistence? sure! has finally paid off. After weeks of camping the area, hours upon hours of Lazheward flapping around on his proto there (and logging there), and no less than four hours just today – I finally have my Scourged Whelpling!!
Everyone, meet Kaegro (it is Draconic for “undead”). I expect as Xarzith, my Azure Whelpling is my Shaman’s constant companion, this lil guy will be forever paired with DK-Effy.
The very very best part? Even though these lil guys are usually instantly snatched up – I was able to inform my guildies, and two others picked one up! :D
So, how can you catch one of your own?
Well, you could wait until 5.2 and the fixing of their spawn timer… OR…
NOTE: I am not 100% on this, so do not quote me, but this is what I read and I think it actually worked!
The best time to find these guys – heck the only time it seems, as they never randomly spawn from what I have witnessed – is right after a server reset. This endless frustrated me, as I have a Monday-Friday, 8-5 job. :/ But from what I read, in the WoWhead comments in the above link even, is that the rumor is the Scourged Whelplings spawn at the same time of the server’s reset EVERYDAY.
So, I have been camping the area midday all weekend for several weeks now.
It finally seems to have paid off.
We had a strange midweek reset yesterday in the afternoon, and sure enough it was about 3pm Laz’s screen was filled with lil green pawprints today!
Hopefully, anyone who reads this might be able to make that work to their advantage too. But even with a hint, it was still a very long wait.
A worthwhile one, though. Off to level Kaegro!
