I've been playing "World of Warcraft" since 2008 with the launch of "The Burning Crusade." I enjoy gold-making and achievement hunting.
The Tiny Crimson Whelpling is a rare pet that sells for quite a hefty sum on the Auction House.
Maybe you want it for yourself because you are a collector or maybe you just want to sell it on the Auction House for gold so you can buy the Game Time Token.
Either way, I will show you a terrific spot to farm this pet, how to keep motivated during the farm and how much gold you will make during the farm.
This pet has a 0.01% chance to drop so arm yourself with patience as this little guy might make you want to rip out your hair.
For this grind to be efficient I recommend the following Addons:
- LootAppraiser - This addon will show you in real time how much money you made with the stuff you looted. You will see that time spent farming, the amount of gold made and it also features a 'Destroy Trash' button that gets rid of all the Grey items in your inventory. This will help you farm longer without having to go to a vendor.
- Cross Realm Assist - This addon will help you hop realms. You will absolutely need this addon just to find a quiet realm where no one is around and you can farm in peace without sharing mobs with someone else.
This place is located in the Wetlands, halfway the road up to Twilight Highlands.
In this place you will find Dragonmaw Whelpstealer's and Ebon Slavehunter's. There are 3 groups of these mobs, each with 3-6 mobs and the best part is, they spawn instantly.
Below you can see the spot on the map.
These monsters fight each other, one spawning on one side, the other on the other side, meeting in the middle and going at it.
This is absolutely the best place to farm the Tiny Crimson Whelpling, as you can also make some extra gold while waiting for the little dragon to drop.
You will get the following:
- Wool Cloth
- Linen Cloth
- Silk Cloth
- Green BoE Items
In 15 minutes of farming, I got the following numbers:
- 320 Wool Cloth
- 208 Linen Cloth
- 29 Silk Cloth
- 18 Green BoE Items
- 2 Recipes
- 1 Agate and 1 Lesser Moonstone
All these items are worth around 650 gold on my server which is Argent Dawn - EU.
The green BoE Items are also a huge bonus for this grind, as very rare RP gear can drop, worth up to 5000 gold.
With this one I can not help. We could talk statistics and chances but it all depends on RNG. I spent 3 hours on my DK farming this spot and I did not get the pet. I farmed for 3 hours without stopping and it still did not drop.
On the plus side, I got almost 14000 gold in that time in Cloths, Recipes and Rare Items.
I got some blue BoE rare gear as well as a Buccaneer's Vest that is worth 4000 gold on my server. Among these more rare items I also got several items worth 100-300 gold which were a nice addition to my total.
Although I was disappointed I did not get the pet, I still got some gold to show for my work.
This spot is quite amazing if you want to farm the pet or you just want to farm some gold.
You can get a lot of stuff, the mobs spawn almost instantly and you don't get to have any down time at all.
The 14k gold I got for 3 hours of farming could have been easily bumped to 30k if the pet dropped as it goes for around 16k gold on my server but it wasn't meant to be.
I hope you enjoyed this guide and I wish you good luck with the farm!
