Rare Pet Spawns

There are some pets that are conditional pet spawns, meaning that they require something (a weather effect, time of day, etc.) in order to spawn. Because of this, these pets can be very difficult in obtaining, so don’t be surprised if it takes you a while to capture all of them.

Weather Spawns

Arctic Fox Kit: The Arctic Fox Kit can be found in the Storm Peaks. However, for the pet to spawn, the weather needs to be Snow. So it has to be snowing for you to find the pet.

Baby Ape: The Baby Ape can be found on Jaguaro Isle in the Cape of Stranglethorn. For the pet to spawn, the weather needs to be Rain. So it has to be raining for you to find the pet.

Silithid Hatchling: The Silithid Hatchling can be found near the Gaping Chasm and Noxious Lair in Tanaris. For the pet to spawn, the weather needs to be Sandstorm. So a sandstorm needs to be taking place for you to find the pet.

Seasonal Pet Spawns

As of now, there are only 2 pets that are seasonal pet spawns, meaning that they only spawn during certain times of the year.

Qiraji Guardling: The Qiraji Guardling can be found in Silithus and near Ahn’Qiraj. For the pet to spawn, it has to be Summer (the spawn times are Northern Hemisphere-dependent). This means that the pet will spawn roughly from June 21st to September 21st.

Snowy Owl: The Snowy Owl can be found in Winterspring. For the pet to spawn, it has to be Winter (Again, the spawn times are Northern Hemisphere-dependent). This means that the pet will spawn roughly from December 21st to March 21st.

Timed Spawns

Some pets will only spawn on certain days or at certain times of the day.

Restless Shadeling: The Restless Shadeling can be found in the Master’s Cellar outside Karazhan in Deadwind Pass. They can only be found during the Early Morning (checking around midnight is a good idea). What time it spawns is dependent on realm time, not what time zone you’re in.

Stone Armadillo: The Stone Armadillo can be found in Desolace. They can only be found at Night (a good time to check would be about 9 pm). What time it spawns is dependent on realm time, not what time zone you’re in.

Wanderer’s Festival Hatchling: The Wanderer’s Festival Hatchling only spawns during the Wanderer’s Festival in Krasarang Wilds. They will generally get picked up quick, so you should be down there before the Festival begins, so you at least have a chance at battling one.

Widow Spiderling: The Widow Spiderling can be found near the Twilight Grove in Duskwood. They can only be found at Night (a good time to check would be about 9 pm). What time it spawns is dependent on realm time, not what time zone you’re in.

Reputation Battles

Wild Crimson Hatchling: The Wild Crimson Hatchling spawns in the Arboretum near the Temple of the Jade Serpent in the Jade Forest. In order to battle the pet, you must be exalted with the Order of the Cloud Serpent.

Wild Golden Hatchling: The Wild Golden Hatchling spawns in the Arboretum near the Temple of the Jade Serpent in the Jade Forest. In order to battle the pet, you must be exalted with the Order of the Cloud Serpent.

Wild Jade Hatchling: The Wild Jade Hatchling spawns in the Arboretum near the Temple of the Jade Serpent in the Jade Forest. In order to battle the pet, you must be exalted with the Order of the Cloud Serpent.

Difficult to obtain pets

Giraffe Calf: The Giraffe Calf appears in the Southern Barrens. They appear within Giraffe “packs”, usually with one of them being a battle pet and the others being plain critters.

Kirin Tor Familiar: To obtain the Kirin Tor Familiar, you need to complete the Higher Learning achievement. Once you obtain The Schools of Arcane Magic – Mastery, use the book to teleport to Archmage Vargoth’s room in the Violet Citadel. Talk to him and he’ll reward you with this pet.

Minfernal: This pet can be found in the Shattered Scar area of Felwood. Because of their rarity, the only time they’re generally available for capture is right after restarts on Tuesdays.

Scourged Whelpling: This pet can be found in Sindragosa’s Rest in Icecrown. Because of their rarity, the only time they’re generally available for capture is right after restarts on Tuesdays.

Shadow Sporebat: This pet can be found near Zangarra in Talador in WoD. For whatever reason, it is a rare pet with few spawns, so the best time to attempt to capture one is right after restarts on Tuesdays.

Unborn Val’kyr: The Unborn Val’kyr can be found throughout Northrend. I’m not sure if realm restarts affect the spawning of this pet, but I’ll tell you that the two that I found and captured, were not after realm restarts (I also found both of them in Sholazar Basin). They were at random times. When battling this pet for capture, be aware that they occasionally cast Unholy Ascension which will kill them instantly. You’ll need to bring their health down enough to capture very quickly. (Beware, if the Unborn Val’kyr uses Unholy Ascension, they won’t re-appear if you think that restarting the battle will cause them to respawn.)

Do you have a pet that you think should be listed here? If so, send me a message and if I agree with you that it should be on here, I’ll post the pet information!
