View Full Forums : NPC Whelplings?

03-04-2006, 12:18 PM
I have been doing a little farming lately trying to get one of the NPC Crimson or Emerald whelplings. I've worked on ones in Wetlands and in Swamp of Sorrows, and have killed quite a few, but no drop yet. I realize they are very rare drops, not complaining. I'm wondering if any of you guys have ever gotten one of them, and what was your experience doing so?

I got a Tiny Crimson Whelpling with my priest after killing about five of them. Got pretty lucky I guess. I equipped it immediatley and have it out all the time - its cool.

Dont know the drop rate at all, but apparently they are pretty rare and sell for good coin on the AH. I have been thinking about grinding the whelps in Badlands to try to get one to sell toward my epic mount.

What do they do?

They are just pets that fly around after you and look cool.

Does it have to be a crimson or emerald whelpling I kill or can it be any whelpling?

*edit* all I'm seeing out here in swamp of sorrows are dreaming whelplings

Tiny Crimson Whelpling - drops off Crimson Whelps & Flamesnorting Whelps in Wetlands

Tiny Emerald Whelpling - drops off Dreaming Whelps in Swamp of Sorrows

Dark Whelpling - drops off Scalding Whelps in Badlands.

I have gotten all three and the emerald was by far the coolest and hardest to get. Think I was grinding off Dreaming Whelps from around 32 to 42 before I saw one drop. Figure out how much exp they are each....should give you a rough idea of how rare it was for me.

Oh ok thanks....I been hacking on everything with green wings in SoS for a while and nothing i'm off to Wetlands.

Well killing the other whelplings increases the chances for more Dreaming whelps to pop so its not entirely a bad thing.

GL with it....I vowed I would never do it again after that emerald one lol =)

I got a whelping from the ones i9n the badlands after about 5 hours of farming.

I got one of the crimson ones after about 2 or 3 hrs of hunting. Then I bought a guildie one as there was no way I was going to farm for a long time for a pet. Then we did the quest for that little sprite flyer thing and she has that out all the time *sigh*

Got my whelpling on the second try (day of farming, not second whelp). Probably killed in around 200-300 of them to get mine, mind you, i was around that level and grinding xp at the same time :)

Now... getting an oozeling is the goal.

Well, being 60 I've got time to kill ( literally ) now....
