    Worst spawning "mechanic" EVER

    im getting pretty close to over 24 hours straight of searching for the unborn valkyr now for those who dont know the unborn valkyr is a rare spawn pet like the minfernal or scourged whelp HOWEVER unlike those two it can spawn ANYWHERE in northrend, literally anywhere.

    so instead of sitting in one spot and knowing if you wait long enough eventually it will spawn you have to fly all over northrend hours on end and hope you happen to be in the right place at the right time.

    not only have i been searching for almost 24 hours straight for more than half the time i had 2 to 3 people helping me look for it.

    this is horrible and i hate it, if it was in one spot i wouldnt mind because i could just go there sit there and wait and if i can figure out when it last spawned i could probably even figure out when exactly i need to show up or if its a weather effect just sit there and wait for it to happen but no i have to fly all around northrend and read every green paw that shows up and check over and over again.

    to compensate for its bad spawning "mechanic" blizzard should raise the spawn rate, not to ludicrous amounts but enough to where things like flying around for almost 24 hours straight arent likely to happen

    Actually this seems like a pretty reasonable mechanic. The goal is for the pet to be super rare, and to get people out looking for it. Sitting in a general area waiting for your NPC scan-like addon to go off while doing other things is probably not Blizzard's goal when they decided on this. The only problem I have with it, is that it's in a heavily populated CRZ zone.

    Also: The patch has been live for little over 24 hours, and you're QQing because you don't have something that just came out. I know it's new and shiny. but calm down. Come back in a week or two, and then I'll listen.

    Sounds a bit like Time Lost. Rarity is important.

    You are also forgetting the fact that nothing you do will make it spawn, considering its Realm based. I how ever think its a wonderful Mechanic will make it when i see it, or even lucky enough catch it wonderful. Here is hoping they make more this way

    i should also mention that their are griefers who fly around and use aoe spells to kill the pet just so other people cant get it

    Making it more rare and more epic for the people who manage to get it.

    It could be like Time Lost and not even spawn within the first X hours after server restart. Also, I doubt it can spawn literally anywhere. There must be set points. One thing I read said it spawned instead of rare Northrend mobs.

    The cleric Epic in EQ would like a word with you about spawn rates and camping for days...

    It's a great mechanic imo. Sitting and addon camping for stuff is super lame. I want more things to be exactly like this to be honest.

    Odd, after I got Time-Lost, Phosphorescent, among other rarities, I didn't feel any more proud then when i didn't have them. More like "fucking finally" and went and did something else. Don't sugarcoat BS.

    It's a great mechanic. It's meant to be an exceedingly rare pet, and this works well with that. You may not like it because this makes it virtually impossible to farm for, but that doesn't make it a bad mechanic.

    Could you possibly be more obvious when shrugging off a valid reasoning? People wanting rare stuff day 1 (and more importantly, whining about it).... sickening.

    yes because having gotten all the other super rare pets and waiting hours on end to get them doesnt give me experience to know when something is to damn hard to find?

    You know I wish I could get to Northrend so I actually could look for that pet. I've noticed that like 3 weeks ago Northrend does not load for me and everything is untextured and my cpu starts running at 90%ish so something is wrong with Northrend and I was kinda hoping the patch would fix it.
