Yes but all the people are farming it now at same time. I can bet within a couple weeks the traffic there will be minimal.

Is it? When i found mine I hadn't seen anyone in the area for a couple days.

Plus, Minfernal have very high respawn time (24+ hours?), while the Qiraji aren't really "rare", it's just about there being a ton of people looking for them so they basically disappear as soon as they spawn.

Would you hate me if I told you that I got the valkyr at the 4th lap ever, the minfernal after camping for maybe total 2 hour after getting there for first time, and the scourged whelp by accident not knowing it was rare? :P

Minfernals are impossible.

I actually have two Val'kyrs now - found the first one in about 5 minutes last week, and another one today (after probably 4 hours of flying around - not all at once of course, just bits here and there waiting in LFR queues). I _am_ using both of them in one of my PvP teams (still trying to settle on a good 3rd pet for that group), so don't yell at me too much for grabbing a 2nd. :P

I cheapo-ed a Scourged Whelpling - did the "DK on an RP-PvP server" bit and they were all over the place. Kinda funny walking around Icecrown with a level 1 char.
I might just do the DK starter quests with that guy in order to get a Minfernal as well - probably faster to do that than camp the spawn area on a normal server. The Scourged Whelpling is good - my Clockwork Gnome/Scourged Whelpling/Zandalari Kneebiter team is doing pretty well, though I wish the Kneebiter wouldn't fall over quite so easily. *chuckle*

The Latin America region only has one PvE realm. That's where I caught mine.

Guardlings are 16.

And that would explain why when I went to look for a Valk I logged in and my general chat responses went like this

"Hey I found a guardling if anyone needs one"
"nevermind make that two"
"make that four"
"nevermind if you need one and you don't get one you're blind"

Either way works for me. I already got mine and just got my Valk about 10 min ago. I can chill on pet hunting for a while again. Pretty surprised they caved already.

Honestly it felt very stupid that a pet that only spawns during a limited amount of time was also rare to find.

Just annoyed I wasted 15 minutes of my life to make a level 1 and beg a friend to fly me there :lol:

So two questions...

What's the best way of leveling your first 3 pets to 25? Seems like such a slog.

Second, what's the best way to powerlevel once your first ones are lvl 25? Are you bringing a lvl one to a lvll 25 fight? or?..

I levelled a team from 1 to 25 by keeping them close-ish in level and fighting same-ish level wild pets. You're right, it was a slog.

I've heard people say a good way to do it is to use your team to catch pets 2-3 levels higher, then use those to catch 2-3 levels higher, all the way up. I havent tried it, but assuming you can manage the catches this seems like a much faster way.

Once you're up, you have a couple options. Like you said, bringing the lowbie to a high-level fight can work, though until they're 10ish they can get one-shot pretty easily.
Easier way is to make use of the daily trainer quests. Some of them you can easily take down with two pets, and have things about them that make it safe to bring in a level one. For example, Hyuna of the Shrines has the pet Dor the Wall, which only has one damage ability and that on a long cooldown. In between those attacks, you can swap in a lowbie, swing once, swap back to your 25, and continue the fight. When you win, your level 1 is now level 11.

There's a few like that, though that's the easiest one. You can get a pet to 25 in one round of dailies, though I will sometimes do a couple pets to the high teens then grind out the rest on level 25 wild pets.

Easiest way to level pets to 25 is to use Beast / Mechanical / Flying / Magic pets, and go against their weak pets

Bringing initial ones up: I did the "slog" bit as well, but it's way faster to "cascade" by continuously stepping up 2 or 3 levels once you have a green or two that can handle it.

http://tamerliopleurodon.wordpress.com/2013/05/27/cascading-a-pet-leveling-technique/

There's a link in there to how to level the "correct" ones later once you have a pair of 25s as well. The level 25s don't "soak" any XP any more - it all goes to the lower-level guys as long as they're in the fight for a round.

Zalaria wrote:In between those attacks, you can swap in a lowbie, swing once, swap back to your 25, and continue the fight. When you win, your level 1 is now level 11.

As a side note here, you only have to "swing once" if the lowbie is your "lead" pet. If it's swapped in during the fight instead, you can immediately swap it back out and it'll still get XP.

Just do the tamer chain. Fight pets to in the zone to keep up with the levels needed for the zone tamer. You'll need to do this anyway for the power leveling so don't put it off.

Level a pet to level 2 or 3 from fighting squirrels in Stormwind. If you don't mind traveling hit up the Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms tamers. The low level will gain a bunch of levels while your 25s finish off the 20s you'll face. After that you just hit up some of the easier Pandarian tamers like Farmer Nishi, one aquatic can take out her entire team, or Hyuna once you get a strong team to take out her first two easily. The Air Spirit is also easy to take out if you have an Infinite Whelpling as that darn dragon can take out that entire team.

For a strong group of 3 that should work pretty good for leveling to 25 I'd go with Anubisth Idol, a strong mechanical like the Darkmoon Tonk and an aquatic with aquatic attacks.

Easy way to power-level your low level pets once you have a couple of level 25 pets is to go to Dragonblight. Just to the East of Wyrmrest Temple is a large skeleton with lots of Dragonbone Hatchlings. Team your pet which you are leveling with a couple of level 25 pets and go fight. The Dragonbone Hatchlings re-spawn very quickly, so there's minimum downtime, and there's a Stable Master on the East side of Wyrmrest temple, so it takes 10 seconds and a few silver to heal all your pets back to 100% health. There's also another large skeleton to the South West of Wyrmrest Temple, but that's a little bit further from the Stable Master. Since the char will also get exp, use a neglected alt and level them up at the same time. Over a period of a week or so doing this, my DK went from 85 to 90! 8-)

Looks like pets don't need to actually partake in a battle to get the XP from it. Just got 4455 XP on a level 18 pet on the Farmer Nishi fight without the pet actually being active.

Been watching mine, and don't think I've seen that. Did it take damage during the fight from and AOE, even though it wasn't "active"?
