    As SV the only pet i was realy eager to get was Sambas, the only "lion skin" used in the game as a pet, very very unique indeed (surprised it isn't exotic), so i went for him.

    Got him after 15 minutes flying around in the known spawn points. Went there on the next day to help a guildie get one and there he was again slightly diferent coords, but there.

    RNG and bad luck is just that... it's what makes the game "random" and feels like you acomplished something when it realy happens. If everything would be easy and certain, no one would give much importance to a rare pet... it's the whole point...

    I was procrastinating on hunting Karoma back in Cata. Then, while leveling from 84 to 85 and doing the Dunwald Wildhammer chain in TwiHi, Karoma spawned right next to me. Just *poof*, it's Karoma! 10 yards away!

    Literally 45 seconds before a weekly maintenance server shutdown. Fantastic fortune!

    Except I was on my Shaman. xD

    The 3 spirit beasts near the molten front dailiy hub seem to be the most easiest to get cause most people dont even bother to get far enough to open up the quest hub

    On my second hunter i got ban'thalos and i was the only person there

    IMO i would just forget spirit beasts like loq nahak and skoll and concentrate getting either ghostcrawler or the molten front spirit beasts which seem to have the least competition

    They were never intended to be easy to find. The fact that WOTLK ended and fewer people visited the zones meant the spirit beasts had more uptime. With CRZ, it's working as intended.

    The Molten Front spirit beasts however, are still easy. Magria, Ankha, Ban'thalos.

    Hopefully they'll add new Spirit beasts in Pandaria using the tracking system, they could do something very interesting with that.

    That feeling when there's a new expansion out and you sit in a Garrison wondering what the hell to do because you are stuck on an entire continent like Timeless Isle, only with flightpaths to encourage afk travel coz "immersion".

    Ha! No this is wrong, I went to that place where that rare T-rex is and I happened to see the other rare that are in that zone

    I like you TS .

    Like others said probably because of CRZ

    Also depends a bit on timing. I find early morning is the best time, most WoW players like to burn on through to 2-3AM but they love to sleep in! Unfortunately so do I.

    Might differ based on your server's time zone etc. CRZ is within a 4hr time difference I think? Unless that changed again with the latest tweaks to CRZ.

    You know you can tag the mob and fly him out of his usual flight path then sell the tag.

    The reality is some people get lucky, but if you put in the time, you'll get rewarded.

    Dragonmaw was the best for this sort of things.
    "Hey, i should check every Spirit Beasts spawn points!"... they were ALL there. Along with Sambas, Karkin, Deth'Tilac and Aotona.

    (Title is awesome.)

    it is just pure luck or good determination to whether you find a spirit beast.

    Your experience isn't typical. That doesn't make the 7 hours of camping I did "wrong".
