Darkmoon Pets – 5.1 Edition

1

The Darkmoon Faire is here for another month with a lot of exciting changes from Patch 5.1. A new Pet Tamer to defeat, wild pets and vendor pet.

First off is the Darkmoon Glowfly which may be captured on the outskirts of the island. Note that the level of pet can vary between 1-10 but may be seen in all quality levels (after a recent hotfix).

The Crow is a little more elusive as it only appears as one of several possible secondary pets to the Glowfly. Due to the level of the Darkmoon Glowfly, you’ll also find the crow in a wide variety of levels and qualities. However as the level of the Darkmoon Glowfly dictates whether you’ll have a secondary pet or not, you will need to spend a lot of time and effort to camp for a rare.

You can also try your luck with the very snazzy looking Tamer of the Faire. Each day he will offer the quest – Darkmoon Pet Battle! for the price of a game token. Completing the quest will reward you with the Darkmoon Pet Supplies which has a chance to include a Darkmoon Eye – currently seen as a member of his team.

Location: On the west side of the lane between the shooting gallery and souvenir stalls – 47, 62
Level 25 Epic Pets: Fezwixk (Beast), Honky-Tonk (Mechanical) and Judgement (Magic)

The fight itself was fairly easy compared to the Pandaren Spirit Tamers – unless of course you forget to switch out your low level pet first :P

But if you’re looking to spend your stash of tickets, look no further than Lhara who has the Darkmoon Hatchling on offer for 90 tickets.

Wild Pets – 5.1 Complete

6

I was excited to get the last three wild pets I needed from the 5.1 push. The hardest four by far were the following:

Arcane Eye

I found this one just outside Karazhan although it did take a couple of trips to Deadwind Pass to find just one specimen.

Fluxfire Feline

Next came several trips to the Toxic Airfield, just outside Gnomeregan on several toons and servers. I had read that they could spawn inside where the gnome starting area is but on the day after the patch, there were no battle pets at all down there. By chance I spotted this one right by the sludge pools with three other people roaming the area.

Infinite Whelpling

This morning I also managed to find an Infinite Whelpling at the entrance to the Caverns of Time (around where Occulus the Corrupted spawns). This looks like a miniature version of the rare.

Anodized Robo-Cub

I was especially relieved to find this little guy on the hill behind Everlook. All the mechanicals look great, don’t you think?

If you’ve been wondering about not being able to drop the Pet Tamer daily at the moment (because you quest log is full), it’s an intended change:

In other news, I managed to get my first Flawless Beast Battle-Stone but I have yet to decide who to use it on. The Pandaren Spirit Tamer dailies are currently bugged right now meaning you can only do them once and that’s it. Blizzard have stated that they are looking into the issue.

I also managed to get THREE of the classic raid pet drops today with Coolidge’s help <3

Oh and I finally cracked the 15K mark on my achievements. :D
