I like to know something .. Am try for the Azure Whelping . and it say it my come after 10.000 kills or sooner. but is it my kills or everyone in that land that is killling.? Or my kills .. just like to know
Your kills; it's a random loot drop off the whelps.
This also means that it may
come after 10,000 kills. You could kill those things by the million and not see the drop if you're unfortunate enough.
It's random. Do you feel lucky?
The number that you are given with an addon is actually just a calculation of how unlucky you are. The addon cannot tell you exactly when one will drop. It can only tell you when one should have dropped. You can reach up to 99% chance according to Rarity or Bunny Hunter, but that only means that according to the addons math, there was a 99% chance you would have looted it by that point and time.
Each time you loot a whelp it rolls a new dice. Though sometimes I think (maybe I'm just making it up) certain items for quests drop according to how many mobs you kill, I'm just going to go ahead and say that each roll is completely new and has no relation to the one you killed before. That's why if you take a break, your chances do not go down. Nor does having people in the zone killing stuff take away from your chances. Each time you loot there is always that 1/10000 chance.
I don't mean to discourage you, by all means keep trying. In fact it could be the next mob you kill that drops it. However, if I were you I would do something else. If you spend the time you spend killing mobs there mining thorium and skinning instead, you will likely have more than enough gold to just buy the sucker when it hits the AH. Usually on my server they range from between 2k-8k. I ground out an emerald whelpling for my husband's bday, but I took the less hair pulling approach and just bought the blue one for him. I don't know what skills your toon has or their level, but I'm sure you could easily make the gold instead of driving yourself crazy.

Pretty much this.
The days of pet farming seem to be in the past with the frequency these appear on the AH these days.
As a former pet collector I have farmed all the whelps (Crimson, Green, Azure and Dark) As I do deal a lot in buying and selling pets the most common are in this order:- Azure Dark (probably tied) Green and Crimson. (Yet to see a Crimson for sale except the one I sold for 20k)
Ergo, If you want to farm then farm the Crimson, they all have the same drop rate.
Also ensure you have a toon capable of gathering mobs and killing the quickly, AoE looting really helps here.
(And on long farming sprees I found an engineer with mailbox and scrapbot to be so much easier than returning back to town to empty your bags.)
AH is your friend. I tend to check Alliance, Horde & Neutral AH's on a regular basis. Amazing what bargains you can find. Lately i have seen rare pets go for such low amounts.
I wouldn't even try to farm for pets today, unless the item in question never appeared on the AH, good luck with finding that pet you want.
