Early this morning I tamed Savage, a rare white Siberian tiger in Jade forest. I'm excited about it. Anyways, figure if you're like me you want some info on other's. All my pets except for one is all rares (i.e. I have all the spirit beast currently from Cata and WoTLK, Samabas, Madexx, Nuramoc, etc.)
So here is some info for you hunters I found from a website on MOP rare pets curently.
Savage, the white tigress
Glimmer, the aqua strider
Bloodtooth, the dragon turtle
Valley of the Four Winds
Patrannache, the crane
Hexapos, the strider
Rockhide the Immovable, the basilisk
Vale of Eternal Blossoms
Portent, the quilen
Bristlespine, the porcupine
Stompy, the goat
The challenge with these guys is they have a looooong travel path. Thats right, they actually travel as oppose to staying in one spot. Also note that Savage stealths and reappears (kinda like ghostcrawler does in Abyssal Depths.) So I'm not sure if the others do. I doubt it though since cats usually are the ones that stealth's besides spirit beast.
That link gives off the travel path for each pet.
You still have s shot at it and I wish you the best of luck and thanks!
Also note: ALL PETS ARE STEALTH! They do leave tracks in their path. I know that Savage comes in and out of stealth so I'm assuming the others do as well.
I just got those 2 last night, I don't think they came out of stealth once though.
All new rare mop hunter pets will be in stealth, you have to track the footprints in the direction the heel is pointing and use your flare to unstealth the beast. a great source of information on rares and tracking is located here
Stompy has a relatively small path compared to say, Portent, who wanders end to end of the zone. Annoyingly, his path also can sometimes go where you will never be able to, so you have to just wait and move around.
In my hunt for Stompy (and looking up info on others):
The tracks are backwards for some reason. You have to follow them in the opposite direction of what you would expect.
The tracks are ONLY visible to a hunter. My boyfriend was annoyed that his druid couldn't see the tracks. I had to do it on my own.
Stompy does a lot of turning and meandering. I found two tracks next to each other that were facing the opposite directions.
Stompy walks straight up cliffs. I think that might explain why you get to a point with him and his tracks disappear. I lost his trail, then picked it up again on a different section of the mountain.
Be prepared to use readiness and flare. The ground is uneven, so the flare doesn't cover much, and Stompy changes direction a lot, so a flare in the same location twice in a row has a chance of revealing him. In fact, that's how I got him.
Once Hunter's Mark is on them, they don't disappear on you. You can follow them all over the zone, or until another Hunter comes along and reveals him. He will only remain visible to you, the hunter.
These are a different challenge than Cata ones. You don't seem to need to sorry about surviving the tame. You just need to have the patience and will to find them.
Personally, I want Portent, but only if he happens to spawn in green, which is my favorite color. For now, I have a regular ol' Quilen that I managed to tame at a stage where he wasn't a rock. I also have the stone version. Useless, but mildly amusing, especially if you glyphed Stampede. :)
