Unborn Val'kyr pet location

So I've been trying to find the Un'born Val'kyr on the PTR. I've gone to all the obvious places (almost everywhere in Icecrown, keep with Val'kyrs in Howling Fjord, and town with Val'kyrs in Storm Peaks), and I even traced the screenshot location from Mumper's tweet (look at the mountains in the background for confirmation): https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BGOKVPtCEAEfXiT.jpg:large

It could just be not yet implemented (very possible) but has anyone seen it or have any ideas?

@Proffessor_Oak Less elusive than the Minfernal. The spawning is certainly unique on her though. ;)

Whispers from pet tamers in the north have spread word of an elusive new battle pet that can be found in the frozen tundras of Northrend. The Unborn Val'kyr awaits.

4. Three unassigned spells have appeared alongside the pet: http://ptr.wowdb.com/spells/142255-unborn-ressurection and http://ptr.wowdb.com/spells/142256-unborn-valkyr and http://ptr.wowdb.com/spells/142258-unborn-valkyr-focus

He said it had a unique spawning condition:

I have no idea what that means, so your guess is as good as mine (or it might not b implemented on PTR yet).

Perhaps it spawns when someone kills the lich king?

Maybe it spawns when a player dies to another player or a rare?

I killed Hildana Dethstealer, the Val'kyr rare in Icecrown, but she didn't spawn one either.

The first spell fires the second spell every 3 minutes. The second spell does an unknown script effect (142255). No other pets have mechanisms like this.

Edit: 142255 is a spell ID - no idea why wowhead and wowdb both don't understand that. It's http://ptr.wowdb.com/spells/142255-unborn-ressurection

"Val'kyr remain unborn until they vanquish a creature of high nobility"

I've been flying around killing rare mobs but no val'kyr :(


Hmm. I know there are a couple of those undead kings lurking in those quest areas. But the only other thing that would reference "noble" outside of an actual king or royalty would be the argent crusade folks.

Maybe it's just not fully implemented yet.

I don't think the flavor text is related. The flavor text is saying how an Unborn Val'kyr grows up into a regular one.

Remember we're trying to find out how to get the unborn ones, not how they grow up.

142225 says "Target Requirement - Critter, Non-combat Pet"

I just hope that this "Unique" spawning method can be triggered by personal work and not some stupid

Kind of like

Zunde does something to trigger spawn
Pet collector flys in and snags the spawn
Zunde feels like a chump

Going to try killing some critters in the Scourge areas around my picture in the OP in an hour or two (in raid atm).

It might just be some sort of script effect that the pet itself does while it walks around - it might ressurrect nearby critters - but it is the only real lead besides randomly wandering Northrend.

Has anybody tried looking for it as a ghost? It might be a long shot, but it would be unique.

Maybe the trigger is when the Val'kyr event is going on at the tournament?

Or it may just not be fully implemented yet. I do like the idea of pets with unique spawning conditions outside of just weather, though.

I tweeted at Mumper so hopefully I can know whether or not I'm wasting my time atm.

What we know about Val'kyr - Val'kyr are specially-trained female Vykrul who are killed and raised as Undead. So to that end, I've been killing off Vykrul women in Ymirheim in Icecrown and Valkyrion in Storm Peaks; we know that since it just says "Northrend" and not anything more specific, so the pet -must- be found in multiple zones.

In case I was wrong, I also spent some time derping around in the spot from Mumper's screenshot. There are two interesting things - there is a 'graveyard' centered around an obelisk about 20 yards from the location, and there is a patrolling group of two mobs (one Forgotten Crypt King and one Forgotten High Priest) that passes -directly- through the location in Mumper's screenshot.

Agreed. I hope these pets are individually phased with whatever we have to do to get it to spawn. If not, people would just be waiting around to swoop in and take the pet battle. It sounds interesting though.. no one has figured out how to get one? Maybe the rest of it isn't implemented yet in the ptr

@Simca, which phase of the area in Mumper's SS are you in? I've already unlocked the whole shebang, and I really hope it's not contained in a prior phase. :\ Though that wouldn't explain 'Northrend.'

Tried the 'kill female vrykul' in Valkyrion, both in Day and just now Night, nothing. After about a half an hour I flew around Stormpeaks and killed the critters, then killed all the Val'kyr one round, just in case it's a momma/baby spawn like Cheetah Cubs. No dice.

My outside, I Really Hope Not guess would be they spawn for 1/2 hr - hr every time someone kills LK. On the server I picked for PTR, there's no statue in Dalaran yet. boooo, unborn valkyr. boooo.

Well, on the upside I'm sure Ret can solo ICC 10, so if that is the trigger I could test it.

However, yeah, I've spent ~6 hours wandering the various areas of Northrend with an emphasis on Icecrown and spent an additional hour killing Vrykul in Valkyrion and in Ymirheim.

Looks like the statue is up now, still nothing.

I'm on Anasterian-US. You want to meet up in Scourgeholm and pvp kill me a couple times, see if that does anything? I am quite noble. I'd suggest dueling but I didn't make it over with any of my pets.

Just a thought, but you think this could be related to the "Noble" title you get during Noblegarden?
