Demurr, this creature is actually a heavily modified Swift Flight Form model.
Just a note, when commenting on new creatures with existing animations, they do not modify the models. They create a new model, and rig the model and apply the existing animations to it. So this is a new model, but an existing animation.
This is the same with a lot of animations on models in the game, due to the huge amount of time it would take to give each and every model its own set of animations.
The Phoenix Hatchling doesn't make a noise when you click it and doesnt make a wing flutter noise when you are close to it.
Unlike most 'blue' pets, this pet is silent.
This pet has a "Low" drop chance (3% - 14%) according to Armory.
This pet is the best one to show off to friends/guild and random persons in big citys.
I love mine.
My best guess about Blizz actually getting the idea of giving him a non-combat pet would be:
After the fight in The Eye he didn't die. But asuming from the drop
Ashes of Al'ar. Kael'thas lost his mount. He still needs a mount and is now raising a new Phoenix. Of my own opinion this is a very possible solution to the question why they made it.
In patch 2.4.3, numerous flying non-combat pets have had their flight height modified to no longer skim along the ground. This includes captured firefly, dragonhawk hatchlings, moths, owls, parrots, phoenix hatchling, spirit of summer, sprite darter, and tiny sporebat.
if you click (view in 3d) button at the top of the screen you can see what it looks liek before the fire effect.
very hot pet.. cant wait to get one.. im going for the 50 pets achievement.. im 39/50 pets ATM.. so that would be my 40th pet XD
This pet is by far one of the best looking vanity pets available to date!
As of 3.0.3 (maybe earlier, noticed it just now) this pet has a sound effect.
Curios, but it seems to have the same drop rate in heroic and normal mode?
For anyone who may be wanting to complete some runs for this little guy I was able to 3-man MgT heroic last night with a lvl 80 warlock, lvl 77 pally, and myself (lvl 80 feral druid). Incredibly easy, incredibly quick. The hachling dropped on the first run, somehow the lock and I tied with a 100 roll, I subsequently lost 26 - 15 QQ
Can anyone confirm that this pet drops on normal? I have done many many runs and not seen it, and i can't solo kael'thas on heroic.
I just got this companion today, and he definitely DOES make a cute little squawk when I click him :)
I'm a Beast Mastery hunter with a Gorilla pet, wearing Naxx gear and I was able to solo this the following way:
First and foremost avoid aggroing the small packs as much as possible - makes the run a lot quicker. If you do, just like the 5man version, go for healers/casters first. I'd reccomend using some buff food and possibly flasking for your first few tries :)
is pretty easy - pure tank and spank.
is somewhat more challanging. I killed the little
in the room and made sure I had the
from the as I engaged the boss. Make sure you do this quickly as the buff fades in 20 seconds. When orbs appear you can use Feign Death or have your pet pick them up. Speed is key here as he progressivly does more damage. Save Last Stand until the boss overloads.
is the most challenging encounter of the run - it largely depends on what group composition you get for this. Two healers and it becomes very difficult. You can use your Freezing Arrow to trap one of the melee mobs. Focus on healer mob first, then the lower hp ones, then finally the boss herself.
is fairly straightforward - remember to kite the bird and burn him down as soon as possible, making sure he dies away from your pet. Levitation phase your pet will continue to dps as he's nota affected by it and you can shoot from the air, while avoiding the orbs.
I've done 4 runs so far (each taking about 30 mins) and no pet so far - good luck.
SOOO...... CUTE O.O
Also found next to Elder Ezra Wheathoof in Thunder Bluff on Elder Rise.
I really hate this. I had been trying to solo farm this for days, but the one time i'm in a group it drops and the hunter gets it even though he didnt even need it... I hate it when stuff like that happens.
i can confirm that it does not drop on regular, ran thorugh it so many times, never dropped, same for the mount too :(
It does drop on Normal mode, seen it twice in 2 runs in a row now.
Just another confirmation on the drop rate. Never been there prior,myself and husband decided to give it a try on our DK's. Easily soloed on Normal mode, and the Phoenix Hatchling dropped. Shocked was an understament. Not only do I have poor luck with drops, (still trying for my darn Polar Bear), but I have drooled over the Phoenix Hatchling since it B.C. came out.
For those of you still trying, dont give up! I'll cross my fingers for you! =)
I have been looking into whether or not it drops in reg and i finally found 2 diff ppl on my serer that confirm that it does, tho the drop rate is considerably lower in reg MgT. So just wanted to pass that along if anyone else wanted to make sure before they started farmin for her.
Solo'd this last night on an Enhance shaman, full 213's/226's. Avoid all packs you can, always hex the healer guy, pull your wolves out for bosses.
Honestly the most difficult part of the instance was the mana wyrms before vexalus. Dropped magma totem, earthbind, and ran. Just keep kiting them back thru to the first boss room, dropping magma totems every couple feet.
First boss is cake, 2nd boss i popped bloodlust to burn him down quick. Arena boss was quite easy also, (i got shaman, rogue, mage, engineer). On Kael himself, I popped bloodlust again, and didn't even get a phoenix spawn. had him to 45% in about 20 sec. then just burned him thru the bubbles.
Key to surviving. USE MAELSTROM WEAPON TO HEAL YOURSELF. Not LB/CL, unless your full or nearly full life.
I didn't get this little guy to drop, but I plan on farming until i can get it.
Total time to solo: 20 min
All this talk and no1 tells this: when u come to prince if u down him fast enough and dont allow him to spawn phoenix u will get PET for shure! i farmed mgt for mount and every time when he didnt spawn phoenix he droped PET
I got this in BC on my first couple heroic runs on my priest, i never realized it was so rare. certainly looks awesome though
Would be completely awesome to get this Mount as well:
its amazing even though its easy, how much this instance still annoys me lol, but im glad i finally got this pet its one of my fav's - now for mojo :O
Wait a sec. Don't Phoenix's burn themselves and get "Reborn" and rise from it's own ashes a few days later?
So how can a Phoenix hatch if there never was an egg?
I've been soloing regular MGT on my druid (4/5 T7.5 resto gear, re-spec'd Balance for the instance :) for about a week now, I've killed Kael'thas a bunch of times (~10, I think) and the pet has yet to drop.
Here's a few things I found useful:
- Use stealth in cat form to bypass trash mobs -- it saves you a lot of time. If by any chance they aggro on you and you're not prepared to take them on, revert to caster form and use Shadowmeld. That usually makes them reset. For the record, Shadowmeld also works during boss encounters (it worked on Kael'thas a couple times for me)
- If you have to take down trash mobs, use Treants and CC (Entangling Roots or Cyclone) to keep the casters busy, and always kill the Blood Knights first as they have a 4k+ heal they can cast. The cast can be interrupted with Typhoon.
- Mana wyrms before Vexallus can be burned down easily with Hurricane. Be sure to cast Barkskin first if you're undergeared.
- Also on Vexallus, be sure to kill the Pure Energies that spawn. They have 40 HP on regular, so a quick Moonfire should get rid of them instantly. Here's the macro I use during this fight:
/tar Pure Energy
Pure Energies give a +50% damage buff that stacks, making this boss fairly easy if you're careful. For the record, they can't be AoE'd.
- When fighting Priestess Delrissa, always CC / kill the mobs that stun / fear / interrupt first. (Those would be
). You can use your Treants to keep the other mobs busy while you kill these. If you have decent DPS, you won't have to worry about Delrissa's heals.
Hope this helps!
Got this on H MgT in my level 70s. Dropped first and only run for me, and I won the roll. =D
Does it have an idle animation?
Easy to get now with 2 people. I went in full Ulduar gear with a fully-geared druid, took 15 minutes per run.
I also went w/ a DK to tank, took under 10 minutes every run, got the pet after just a couple tries. No need to go Heroic mode for it.
If I go into the water with mine out he goes under and starts swimming!
It appears that with patch 3.2.2 this little buddy will now fly around in the air with you. I am pretty sure I recall watching him flutter along the ground as I flew off until he despawned, previously.
I for one and loving the "fix" though. I can only assume Blizzard got around to doing this for the sake of the Onyxia whelp.
Edit: On the other hand, he appears to be going a decent amount faster than my flight form and it is just a bit annoying that he is constantly playing ping-pong with my tailfeathers.
This pet will keep up with you while you fly, and won't simply stay near the ground and disappear.
Other pets that do this include dragonhawks, moths, tickbird hatchlings, and tiny sporebats. I'm guessing Nether Ray Fry also do, but I don't have one to test it out. Same with fireflies.
To test it easily, use flight form, fly up high, and see if the pet falls or floats.
The phoenix hatchling would look awesome with the Ashes of Al'ar! Unfortunately the dragon whelpling pets can't follow you in the air like the phoenix can which I personally think is silly... they have wings for a reason don't they?
This pet is one of the prettiest vanity pets in game I think.
If you look closely, you can see he is wearing cute little armor, the same as the druid's flight form! Super adorible. :)
cool little companion. Got mine a while back
Just droped mine on normal and i notest the phoenix was still alive that spowns during the fight when i killed the boss. Done runs in the passed only after the mount and never seen this happen before and never seen the drops. So maybe or maybe not something to do with it dropping.
I got mine on my first run. Never ran the place before ^_^.
I'd rate the difficulty as a "low to medium" to solo Heroic MGT for this every day as Feral Druid (I picked Heroic because the drop rate has always been better for me there).
Stealth through all Trash. The only trash I hit are the packs before first boss because of adding into the boss fight, the mana wyrms, and the one group right before Kael.
First Boss: Easy. Stay in Bear form and treat him like any other mob you've ever tanked. Due to LOTP heals I end the fight with 100% health.
Mana Wyrms: Hardest part of entire instance. Must pull atleast in 2 packs, prefer 4 for safety/quickness. If pulled all at once your Swipe will be crud for Dmg (due to AoE changes AoE's always do damage as if they were hitting 10 targets, means your Swipes will hit for like 50 if all are on you), and their little explosion when they die can actually be deadly in multipled so much.
Second Boss: Easy. The damage boost you get from the Sparks makes this a quick fight.
Third Boss: Easy to Medium, depending the classes present. The damage is low and they haven't much health, but if you get a lot of classes with CC and annoying abilities they can actually become an annoyance and whittle your health down, no danger of dying though may have to pop CDs like Frenzied Regen.
Final Boss: Medium. I usually start fight in Cat to burn him quickly, switch to bear when he nears the 50% mark or phoenix comes (only if you arent fast enough), so I can pop Frenzied regen before Gravity Lapse. Then on Gravity Lapse you should be over 50% health thanks to F-Regen, and you can go cat and just keep your Bleed DoTs on him as you run around away from the balls, and he usually falls for me around the start of second Gravity Lapse.
I farmed until I had this pet, the orb, and all the old patterns I missed in BC.
I've been soloing MT for this pet on normal for months now on my elemental shaman (icc 10 geared) and not yet gotten it, attempting MT every other day.
A few tips for those other ele shammies soloing it.
1 - Don't use thunderstorm unless you know there are no packs of mobs around the area.
2 - Make use of both earthbind totem and magma totem on the trash
3 - On large packs of mobs remember to cast hex on one of them and pull the rest back
Wish that with given time
would turn into
Just soloed reg MGT on my 80 Ret Pally and got it to drop after only 2 runs.
It didn't take much to farm this pet. I wasn't actually going to MT for the pet, rather the Shattered Sun rep. Soloed as an 80 prot Pally, mostly 232/251 gear, easysauce. This little guy dropped after my third Kael'thas kill.
This was a really fun, easy instance to me. Since I never went at 70 I suppose I was missing out on the group aspect rather than the 'tank-everything-to-death' side.
If you're a fire mage, you owe it to yourself to get this pet.
Or anybody really. This thing kicks ass. Who DOESN'T want a phoenix?
In a single attempt to retrieve this pet, I got it. Much to my glee! I spent two months farming for a firefly and one go at the phoenix, I think it was karmic justice but really, he spawned a phoenix on me twice when I solo'ed with my 80 Prot. pally, It was totally worth the attempt to add this beautiful creature to my collection.
My absolute favorite pet in the game. I got this guy while actually farming for the mount, and this beauty dropped on Heroic mode. I have a macro for him so I make sure he's always out! Very flattering pet!
As far as the mount goes, I've farmed Heroic everyday for about 2 months. I can't solo heroic, so I have someone go with me. The mount has dropped once in those two months and my tank won it. -.- LOL I see him riding it around though, and he did win it fairly. So, meh. Hehe. I'll get it someday!
Alright I was a newbie, I thought that it only drops on HC and I was doing it daily with a friend of mine (healer), and it dropped and my friend won it. Then I checked AtlastLoot and I saw that it drops on normal aswel, and I started farming 30 minutes ago, after 5 runs on normal (solo-ed it, im a ret paladin) it dropped. So happy <3
Did normal a couple times through, no good loot. First time solo'ing heroic, died quite a bit doing one run and ended up getting this guy as a reward of my hard work :D
Well! I got incredibly lucky, the pet dropped on my first solo attempt.
Soloed normal mode as frost/arcane pvp mage in 5010 raid dps gear, here's the spec:
Invisibility, as always, is handy for skipping trash, but otherwise you can do what frost mages always do... elemental, freeze, icy veins, blizzard spam.
Selin Fireheart: Open the attack with your elemental, and keep your threat low until it's near death or dead. Kill the first crystal, but by the time the second comes around you should be able to burn him down. Maintain shields, you may have to use a health potion. He's probably the hardest fight for mages.
Vexallus: Might be easy to die, but I didn't. Watch your shields and pound him fast, using Ice Lance on the energies to boost your damage by a ton.
Delrissa and friends: Just like a trash pull. Don't bother with poly, just have elemental attack Delrissa and use freeze as the first waterbolt hits, then icy veins/trinkets and blizzard. It's possible to be hit by fear here, but Mage Armor will kill it early.
Kael'thas: Park him at 55% or thereabouts, and deal with any phoenix and its egg before dropping him past 50%. You can fireblast while flying, but it's really unnecessary - as long as you don't go too near a bubble, the zonewide dot won't get past your ice barrier. The whole fight is about waiting for opportunities.
Dropped for me today after a pretty long farm. I just figured it was worth noting that this pet flies with you when you are on a flying mount.
Dropped today after a casual 3-day 'farm' ... more like me just messing about soloing the place but I was pretty chuffed!
Until they make double flying mounts available outside RaF, it's nice to have a flying buddy for those long flights.
Solo'd this on norm a few minutes ago with my dk tank for the attunement of the heroic version, this little guy dropped and this was my first time completing. Last time I ran it i was lvl 74 and we didnt finish it so...I guess I was lucky lets hope I have the same luck for the mount on heroic ha!
its a easy solo just burned him down with army of dead/ dancing rune weapon to about 80k hp then he used gravity thing, stay away from bubbles, use your ranged abilities, go in for a death strike but not to long because of bubbles and thats it pretty much
this little phoenix dropped twice for my pally
For the collectors up on
this is by far the most popular pet. One of the comments there:
''Since the patch 3.2.2, this is one of the pets that has learned how to fly fast enough and high enough to keep up with epic flying mounts''.
The pet is definitely worth farming every day. Good luck ppl!
Reading everyone's comments on how to do this is great! For demonology locks use hellfire throughout the whole thing and your felguard's axe spin thing every chance you get. On big mobs metaphorphisis w/immolation aura to dish out quick and not so painless hurt! Felguard is a good tank so let him aggro along with bane of doom on big bosses and curse of elements.
This pet still exists...right?
I've been soloing Kael since 4.0.1, and have amassed 21 times in both Heroic and Regular. No pet so far. :\
Never mind, got it run 29.
Woohoo got mine last night! :D
Decided I'd solo this place for the mount and pet. First heroic run I get the mount, first normal run I get the pet :)
As an 85 DK I've been doing this instance every day and I got the hatchling today. As far as I can tell there is very little trash you actually have to fight here as most of it can be avoided due to its small aggro range. Here's what I end up fighting:
- The husks in the room of the first boss. I can't be bothered killing them on the way in so they are all called when I aggro him and I take them down alongside him.
- The small wyrms in the corridor to the next room, there's 5 of them I think.
And that's it. Everyone else is avoided and I just kill the bosses to open their doors. The only tip is to make sure you avoid killing the trash before the last boss because if you do, the boss doesn't give his stupid speech at the start and you get straight on with fighting him. Nothing else really needs a strategy as this class because it's trivial now.
after 1 week farming HC i got it :) also got
This guy is extremely cute. Possibly one of the coolest (and most unique) pet in the game. Aside from the dark phoenix hatchling, which I believe nobody has gotten yet, this pet probably has one of the shiniest skins for non-combat pets.
After 80, farming regular Magister's Terrace is pretty easy. With the dramatic increase of stats after 80, it gets easier and easier. I was level 84 on my arms warrior, and stormed through the instance. AoE is extremely useful, as you can round up trash, and run to the boss and AoE everything down.
If you plan on farming the mount in the future, pick up the attunement quest for heroic mode, which starts with
if you're a Scryer, and
if you're Aldor. Also, you don't have to choose a side to pick up this quest. If you haven't picked yet, just pick up the Scryer quest if you're Horde, and the Aldor quest if you're Alliance.
It's very easy. Once you get to the island, they send you in the find a Blood Elf. Right when you enter the room with all of the Mana Wyrms, the elf is directly to your left. Or, you can just check your map. After that, kill the boss and go outside and click the orb. If you skip the cutscene, it should take a moment for Malygos to arrive. Just wait around. After you talk to him, plow your way to Kael'thas.
Some good armor pieces can drop, even epics in regular. If you want to be a nice person, offer to run people while you farm either reg/heroic. If you're worried about them stealing your mount/pet, just switch the loot system, and loot it all yourself, and trade it to the person. Who knows, maybe this will get you some karma and the pet will drop on your first try.
"Yeah, like that'll happen!"
Happy hunting, and good luck! Farming can either keep you here for a few days, weeks, or possibly eternity, where fate completely hates you and everything that you are, and refuses to let the RNG give the pet to you. Or, you can get lucky like I did, and get it on your first try.
Update: Since I got my first phoenix, I've run heroic Magister's Terrace twice. The second time, the phoenix dropped again. If you aren't having much luck, just hang in there. This pet doesn't have an impossibly low drop rate. In fact, it even seems kind of high for how totally awesome he is!
Ran a friend through REGULAR MGT three times to help him level and this pet dropped on the third run.
I've run MgT well over two dozen times today on my 85 Shaman and not gotten it yet but that's besides the point. There are literally no trash pulls necessary except the one in the first boss room. All other trash can be ignored provided you simply give them some leeway.
For anyone who wants a quick guide:
At the start you run down the middle then turn left or right to avoid the pat without wandering into the mobs on the side. Do the same at the entrance to the boss room. Here all you need to do is kill the Wretched then the boss.
The mana wyrms down that hall aren't elite and there's only 4 so I usually blast past them then run the hall with all of those wyrms floating about. They don't aggro unless you hit them. The next boss easy again. Just don't run into the wyrm wrangler and you'll be fine.
After that you simply run along the walls to avoid the constructs as you turn into that hallway. Avoid running into the pat or going too close to the center area or trash on the sides at the garden area. Usually I just run down the middle and turn off to a side when I come to the next mechanical pat.
After that it's the PVP boss encounter and then you just turn to the side again at the trash pack (I usually take a left to get the most space) right before Kael and take him down.
It's literally 6-8 minutes depending on your luck and familarity with the dungeon.
Easily soloed in about 5 to 10 minutes as a level 85 feral druid.
Dropped on normal mode on my 5th attempt.
After 40 runs, finally got this guy. :D
Keep trying.. rng is evil at times.
Dropped for me after my 40ish attempt. The run before that I hit exalted with SSO so it was worth it, I get a sweet pet and tabard ;)
Now I only have to come back once a day for the white chocobo
It seems the drop rate on this has been increased by a fair margin, either that or weird rng.
I've been farming this place since mid WotLK (for the white hawkstrider, yet to drop) and for the first 30 or so attempts I never saw this once then after the Cata patch I got it and since has dropped several times in a row on both my Lock and Druid. Wish the Hawkstrider would drop that much.
Just got this companion today, my fav!
Mount has yet to drop unfortunately and to make it worse I accidentally vendored my orb and I didn't even know so now it's gone :(
Got him today while farming the mount. Probebly took me around 5 runs to get it.......now the mount!
Upon reading the comments, I went and solo'd this istance (obviously being lvl 85, it wasn't hard).
I did 2 runs and got the phoenix xD
Best of luck to all of you grinding for it!
I got mine on the first try. Took my lvl 85 balance druid. Even the mana worms are easy when pulled and blasted with a combination of starfall, hurricane, and mushrooms.
If you want this pet, go get it. It's a free and awesome pet at max level :)
Received it on our first run, Woot Woot!
I started to farm for rep and I got it on first attempt. Irony - I already know it. Don't know when I got it, strange. Hoping to get mount or orb, still have 20 runs to do :)
does this pet drop on normal mode?
Yes, it does drop on normal mode. That's where I got mine, while doing the Hard to Kill quest prior to unlocking heroic mode.
I received this in the satchel of exotic mysteries
As a general rule, if the person cannot spell or use Grammar correctly, they probably have no idea what they're talking about. Case and point.
Why did it get uprated?
Got this today :D It's such a cool pet! I was trying to get the mount, but was surprised to find the little cutie instead. (I think I've killed Kael about 6 or 7 times)
The place is very easy to solo and the pet has an almost 10% drop rate! so what are you waiting for? :P
does this pet as well as the mount still drop in cata? cuz i can riculously solo kill him in 5sec (360iLvl)
and does it just drop on heroic or both?
Just got the Pheonix Pet after 5 runs on Normal mode, so yes it still drops...
just found this, first time i've ever killed this guy,
just walked in on my 85 hunter & was surprised to see this drop in normal mode
guess it's not THAT rare or is it?
Just killed him for the 8th time (on heroic difficulty), and it dropped.
4th (regular) solo run as balanced druid.... got the pet
on a side note 1st (heroic) solo run i got the mount.
my .02 if you can stealth you only need to kill 3 trash mob packs. so fast you can clear and rerun in 5min or less.
RNG is RNG good luck all
Just got this pet and was my 2nd run, a level 85 DK, would love to get the mount version but...who wouldn't? Anyway don't give up.
This has dropped for me 5 times on HC, and yet no white overgrown turkey.
I have run about 70 and i am getting
Yet each time i see this little chucker in the loot bag, i get a moodchanger, and i suddenly feel that the run was worth it, even without the mount.
I've been farming this pet for about 2 weeks now. I run it once a day on my hunter. Kill the bosses, Camo past everything else. The mount has dropped twice for me now and still no pet. Fail !
Just dropped on my fourth run through MT. I easily solo'd non-heroic with a level 82 hunter (~43k health), but this probably could have been done at 80 or 81 with enough patience.
Good luck to everyone still hunting! Now I'm off to farm rep for the Shattered Sun Offensive...
Just solo'd this on my 85 Prot Pally. Very easy, can skip all the trash. Each run took less than 10 minutes including DEing gear. I hit the 5 instance/hour limit a couple of times.
Got it on my 11th run, had 1 heroic run and 10 normal. Was beginning to think it might be heroic only now, but it definitely drops on normal :)
Definitely drops on Normal; my 'jammy swine' of a L85 Mage got bored & ventured over to IoQ'D to make a start on the Shattered Sun Dailies.
so decided to go to Magister's... got it on his first run... :<
Ended up having re-run as I missed the 'spy' I was meant to find; once I did I'd already killed Kael - the final part of that chain...
As i was soloing the instance for rep, its dropped for me 6 times in a row...
IN A ROW PEEPS! O_O
Is it a record? :o
Still done this for 5 days and yet to drop, but something else droped! Thats right that mount! I almost freaked
I ran this with my 85 hunter about 19 times before I could no longer take the boredom. Right before I gave up I tried the heroic version and the pheonix dropped immediately! So weird O___e. But this is probably my favorite companion ever xD
Got it about ehhhhh 4 try's. as of 4.2 you dont have to have those keys anymore to get into herioc mode and Karazhan. The most coolest companion i have ever seen or have and i have a murky lol
Grinding rep for an unrelated enchant and this dropped after 4 runs: reg, heroic, reg, reg.
Just got this twice in a row, while solo farming, on my last regular run.
PROTIP: Skip the trash right in front of Kael'Thas, if you just walk right past them you don't have to listen to his aggro speech; the fight just starts.
Good luck and happy mount/pet farming.
This companion does drop in normal mode. Sweet to have this with ashes of al'ar
This dropped today for my Druid :D i'm actually farming Magisters terrace for The Orb of the Sin'dorei, but the companion is nice, not to mention the cool mount ^^ the more the merrier lol
This little thing is simply adorable, it's my favourite pet right now. I'm currently farming Shattered sun offence reputation so after doing the dailies I do 1 normal and 1 heroic run of MgT,
This little beauty dropped for me on my 4th run through MgT and I was so happy to see him in the loot window.
This guy is really worth the effort because he's just so darn cute!
if its a 3%-14% drop rate, my mum and i were pretty lucky because she got it on her Warrior and I got my on my dk (trying on my lock and shammy now)
she got hers, then on the run after, i got mine! now if only i can get the mount... :D
good luck to all of you gettinng it, because i must say, it is really beautiful and it has a slight glow to it.
Finally got this after 1 heroic run and over 40 regular runs today. Very neat companion, just wish it wouldn't have taken so many runs to get the drop.
Just had this drop for me today after 11 runs (10 normal, 1 heroic). Soloed on my 85 DK with ease. Each run I'd say took less than 10 min - most mobs won't bother you if you keep your distance. Obviously, RNG is involved, but considering how cool this pet looks (arguably the most fantastic looking in the game), I'd say only having to sacrifice a few hours in MT is a HELL of a deal! I mean, comparatively speaking, how many other rare mounts/pets in the game have this good of a drop rate? Many are less than 1%. This could be my best pet yet, only my Kirin Tor familiar comes close.
I got on my first run today...total of 6 run since i creater my char 2 years ago. :D
I went in with my 85 hunter bm spec made it a lot easier and it was a breeze. I camoed past most mobs and got to kael'thas with in 5 minutes of entering or less. After my 11th attempt it finally dropped. It really isn't that bad of a drop rate. I also made a few hundred gold in the process and got some gear for my guild. The only down side was that because it took me so little time I had to wait 20 minutes until the next hour becasue you can only enter 5 times an hour which I feel is a very unfair amount but that is just me I suppose. Happy hunting :)
I have done 3 runs on heroic and 25+ on normal. The mount dropped for me 2 days in a row but no cursed pet yet :( This pet hates me :(
i got this the first time i ran it on my pally. i didn't attack the bird. i just kept dps with the boss. did it in holy pally. had no trouble running though this dungeon at all. very easy.
got this from satchel of exotic mysteries. apparently has a 0.3% chance of being in it.
I ran this dungeon for a few days, maybe up to 5 times each day. I got on this morning on my 85 mage and ran it solo, and it dropped, just like that. It's beautiful! My boyfriend is very jealous because we had been farming for it together lol. Anyway, the drop rate either isn't that bad or I got lucky.
Woot hoo i got this cute pet Phoenix Hatchling on my first time solo to get the acheivement by myself what a great day
Healed a dungeon and got this little guy from a satchel :] Love him!
Got this little guy on like my 6th run :D Was Happy enough for a bit of luck , Hopefully Now soon I can get the Mount :)
I ran heroic Magister's Terrace 24 times before Kael dropped this. In that same time period I had 2 swift white hawkstriders drop. Don't lose heart, it will drop. If you want to get it out in one stretch do it on regular difficulty.
AWESOME PET! My favorite pet so far in the game! My boyfriend ran me through 5 times (I'm level 71 and he's 85).. We did it once on heroic, and then 4 more times on regular. After running me thru 4 times (since I like to stop and loot every mob and i was taking forever) on the 5th run he just had me wait by the door on the inside of the instance and he snuck through and just killed the bosses, all in all took him about 4 minutes... On the last one, when the fight with Kael'thas Sunstrider started, it sucked me right through the instance, right to the last boss... Tricky! I looted and there was the pet... Best present ever!
Well, going on run #20 to get this little guy...guess I used up all my luck by getting the mount on the 5th run. Stay tuned...
Run #33=success :)
I think drop rates are much higher on normal mode. Farmed it for a while on HC (15+ kills) and didn't dropped. Then I tried a normal and I got on the first run (perheps I'm lucky though).
I have no real data to back my opinion, but as someone said before - farm it on Normal mode.
I started farming for mounts in Sethekk Halls and Magister's Terrace, and I forgot to switch to normal after I was done in Heroic Sethekk. Nothing dropped for me. First normal run in MT - phoenix dropped. Day after I ran MT twice, again phoenix dropped. Today it dropped again. So far for me the drop rate is 50% on Normal mode. I know I am lucky... but the drop rates got to be higher than they used to be, also my friends are getting this pet pretty easy after few runs.
Like many before, I was running the instance to farm reputation with the Shattered Sun Offensive Faction and the little thing dropped at my fifth run.
Pretty easy to get :)
And so cute.
A Wild Moltres Appears!
Ran MT 22 times (4 heroic) and it finally dropped...
So, was running MT for Rep as well as Pet and Mount drops.
As one of the unlucky few it seems, i did not get my pet on the 1st or 10th try, i lost count. Mount still hasn't dropped.
So I'm close to finish my Shatter Sun rep when I pet drops for me, YAY. I reset the run to finish the last 2% rep I need, get to last boss after finishing rep AND the pet drops again. No joke, the very run after getting the pet it drops again
>=D I'm keeping it for MoP, Hopefully can sell or trade it.XD
Time for the mount to drop -_- Damn heroic
This pet, for as cool as it is, is not too bad to get. I ran normal MT 17 times and the pet dropped. At 85, most of the mobs you can surpass without even having to waste time killing them. Each run I did took no more than ten minutes. Very cool pet.
After exactly 30 kills of Kael'thas Sunstrider i got the hatchling on heroic. It must be my lucky week because i got the Fox Kit and Mr. Pinchy as well.
Second run on Normal got me this, got lucky I guess.
How do you get a Phoenix hatchling? Where can I get it? And what Class and/or Race do I need to be able to summon it? This includes the Mount too. :) Sorry if dumb questions, I haven't played it so long. XD
I got this on my second run.
The day before I got the orb :D Next is mount!
Is it still possible to get in Cata?
Still avail in Cata. Both on Heroic and Reg. A friend and I had been farming both reg and Heroic. Dropped last week for him on Heroic and on Reg a few days later for me.
I just got mine after who knows how many attempts. I had been doing Magister's every day on HC and then tonight heard that it dropped on normal. Three attempts on Normal and I now have the pet!
I was running heroic magisters terrace for my 2nd time hoping that the mount would drop instead i was rewarded with this beautiful companion.. gl to all farming it and the white hawkstrider
I'm starting to think the drop isn't in the loot table anymore. I have 47 kills (heroic then regular until it locks me out) and I've gotten 4 mount drops, not a single pet drop. Really? 11%? RNG is no fun :(
Edit: I also got through exalted 4 days ago. I wonder if the GM's or whoever are sitting there watching me endlessly farm this garbage instance for a pet, and hitting the "deny" every time I kill KT.
I just got this cutie today. It took me two days, 13 runs. Just run past trash and you'll do the instance within about 6 minutes. I asked, before I got it, a gamemaster if it was still obtainable in both normal and heroic. He said it was, but that the drop chance was low. Just persevere and you'll get it soon enough ^^.
have run mag terr about 35 times trying for this thing on my paladin xD its really all i want from the instance drops at all besides that sexy robes of the sindorei actually, well got the mount by now even (which hadnt been after at all, was dumbfounded to see it drop) and still no pet xD DAMMIT! least i got my hawkstrider i guess :p
As on MoP xpac these are no longer BoP. I just bought one on AH for 999g. Guess I can cross farming MT off my long list of things to do.
Just got this today. Does it drop in regular, or just Heroic? Also, Same question for mount?
~Detalia, 85 Night Elf Druid, Elune
Will this Pet/Companion become BoE now that MoP have been Relesed?
Probably the best pet to be out there. I mean, I checked the local AH and it was sold for about 2000 Gold, wtf? It's a gorgeous pet. Something you do not want to sell. Especially during these battle pet times. I got it, when there was nothing about pet battles in WoW, so its special to me.
I just want to have Ashes of Al'ar to have with this pet and with me. :) And be as strong as my character is. At least almost that.
I was over-joyed to see this fella on the AH for 1500g! I bought it in a heart beat and I have been leveling him up ever-since. Great battle pet to have. I'm trying to get a trio of rares now that we can see the rares during battles. This was a GREAT addition to my trio. I like having pets that can either rez themselves or heal themselves and he heals! I highly recommend buying this guy if you see him for low cost on the AH, I'm having a lot of fun leveling him!
Why did they use a druid swift flight form for this? Why not just use Al'ar? I've been wondering since BC.
Lil L'ar. :3
BoP, but you can learn the pet, cage it, and then sell it.
Still obtainable in 5.1.0.
Got mine on my third day grinding for Shattered Sun Offensive reputation, it dropped on around 24th run, which is quite many runs considering the 8.26% drop chance (as Wowhead lists it right now), but I'm glad it dropped, because i would've ran the dungeon for the reputation anyways. I just hope the mount drops before i get Exalted with Shattered Sun Offensive.
Good luck to anyone trying to get this beauty!
Edit: The Phoenix Hatchling dropped the very next run too, so for me it dropped 2 out of 25 runs, which makes it (2/25)*100 = 8% drop rate per run. Also, I'm Exalted now and no mounts. Guess i will never get that mount.
Still drops in 5.2-- just got mine today on heroic mode.
As I was farming Magisters' Terrace for reputation with the Shattered Sun Offensive (this was for the title: Aviatrixx, of the Shatterd Sun), I chanced upon this pet no less than four times. Four! <(^(oo)^)>
Al'ar from Tempest Keep also drops this campion. I got it earlier today.
Decided i would go get exalted today with SSO and best way to do that is farm rep. So I ran heroic MT.
First run got the mount.
Started running Regulars
Third run got the Phoenix hatchling
Dont be i have 5 toons and have done Celestials every week on every char and ive only looted gold with a reroll of gold. I Would rather get prideful pieces than this mount but hey watevs
Just got this little guy out of a
I just had this
drop in 'The Eye- Tempest Keep', it dropped off a Boss called
. As per my rarity add-on count, it took me 7 attempts until it dropped today.
Add-on: Rarity can be found by clicking this link-
Coolest Battle Pet out there, but is not that great for battling... Losing to Lvl 13 Battle Pets, when at Lvl 15. Doesn't heal much and does less damage.
Got lucky and just had my
drop from doing the time walking event for the week.
