Top 7 Most Expensive Pets in WoW – And How to Farm Them!

Hey there guys! This is Reckles with WTBGold and today I’m
gonna show you how to farm up the 7 most expensive pets in WoW. I’m excluding TCG and Pet Battle rewards
here because I want to show that even if you hate pet battles, you don’t wanna do em, you
can still get rich off these guys. And rather than doing the typical YouTuber
top 10 list, I’m going to show you my daily routine so you can copy that, go out there
duplicate it, and make some gold. In a nutsell, this route is Antoran Wastes,
UBRS, Molten Front, and Pandaria Raid Finder. But before we do any of that, there’s one
thing you need to do. Use your Time-Lost Artifact trinket to teleport
out to Timeless Isle. The main goal here is to get Mogu runes of
Fate. They’re the bonus roll for ToT, and they cost
1000 timeless coins a piece. But there are 27 pets out here and they’re
suprprisingly expensive. Remember the tiny carps from MoP fishing? Well they’re 100k each now! Each color was initially tied to each Pandaria
zone but you can fish up all 4 here in the Timeless Isle. Most of the other pets are like, 30k mediocre,
but there are two to be aware of. The first thing I do whenever I enter timeless
isle is stop by the cave north of the celestial court. There’s a rare elite elemental in there
called the spirit of jadefire. He’s green, has 6 spawn points, and shows
up every 30 minutes to an hour. He also has a 2% chance to drop the Jadefire
spirit pet which sells for 100,000 – 350,000 gold each. Personally, I think it’s a waste of time
to camp him, but do what you want, definitely check by whenever you’re in the area. Next we’re going to the most expensive farmable
pet in the game, the Spineclaw Crab. This guy sells for 400,000 gold MINIMUM up
to 1.5 million in a pinch. Here’s how he works. There are 30 ancient spineclaw crabs in the
waterr between the horde camp and the gulp frog farm. They, when you kill them, have a 3% chance
to respawn as a Monstrous Spineclaw elite. Which in turn has a less than 2% chance to
drop the pet. Long story short, you’ll get this clawsome
little pet every 2000 krills, on average. Here’s the best way I know to farm him. Grab a stack of Feast of the Fishes. This is from Val’Sharah fisherfriends and
isn’t actually just for trolling your raid team. It turns you into a fish, lets you swim faster
than anything else in the game, you can still attack things. You can still kill things. And even though the buff only lasts 3 minutes,
with bacon you can extend that. So you just swim back and forth between the
horde camp and the gulp frogs, and because these do force spawn, you can do these as
a group. Just don’t be shellfish, call out when the
elite spawns. Honestly, it’s a massive grind but personally
I think it’s way more fun that farming dungeness. If you’re feeling lazy and just want to
be a hermit, an alternative is just hanging out at the jademist dancers. A third of the crabs spawn right there. You don’t have to side step all around. Alright, you’ve got your mogu runes, what’s
the actual route? Well, we’re gonna start off in the Antoran
Wastes. There’s a cave in the north with a bunch
of imp mothers. Do two laps of the cave killing all the imps. They drop imp meat. After you have 100 imp meat, click on the
stack in your bags and you’ll make a delicious imp meat feast. Place this in the lava pool with the fish
skeletons in it and you’ll summon Mother Rosula. She has a 1 in 15 chance to drop a rebellious
imp pet. This guy sells for 100,000 to 400,000 gold. If you do this every day, that’s 2 a month,
200k-800k for a 3 minute farm. Not much better than that. My only recommendation here though, is that
like all rares in Argus, she just has a ton of health, so use the lightforged warframe. It saves you a lot of time. Next we’re going to Blackrock Mountain for
another easy 5 minute farm. For alliance, portal back to stormwind fly
east, for horde, take the Karazhan portal and fly north. Once you’re inside the mountain there’s
a little ledge you can go into. Go up the stairs on your left and you’ll
see the entrance to the Upper Blackrock Spire. Make sure you’re set to heroic. It won’t work on normal or mythic. Kill everything in the first room. Kill the first boss. Kill the trash in the second room and just
to the right of the second boss, you will see that nothings there. Nothings ever there, like 90% of the time. But every once in a while, when you’re lucky,
you’ll see the rare elite spawn miniboss “The Lanticore.” If you see him, and you’re running this
solo, congratulations. It’s 100% drop rate for the pet, Lanticore
Spawnling. And this guy sells for 70-200,000 gold right
now. Personally, I’ve looted 2 in the past week. It’s been a good week. Next we’re taking the Mount Hyjal portal
to the Molten Front dailies and I love these. They’re the predecessor to Timeless Isle,
Broken Shore, Argus, and to me it’s really cool to see where Blizzard has come from. What they’ve kept. What they haven’t when it comes to these dynamic
end game quest hubs. Essentially, what we’re doing here is we’re
going to Ragnoros’ home town, his plane of fire and over the course of 2 weeks of
daily quests, we’re growing a world tree. Also lots of cool achievements and fun little
easter eggs. There is some work to unlock all this though. First, you need to do half of the normal mount
hyjal quest chain. See how the zone is divided into half? Like, half of it’s grass, half of it’s rock? You want to do all the quests where there’s
grass. Second you’ve got a really cool story that
actually made my friend Catherine cry. She’s a huge lore nerd. So, no spoilers. [sound of grilling steak]. Then you have 4 quests at the sanctuary of
malorne, and 4 quests actually inside the molten front. After a week of doing those, you’ll unlock
1 of 2 additional quest hubs, After two weeks of doing those dailies, you’ll be able to
get 31 Marks of the World Tree a day. Turn these in to Zen’Vorka underneath the
World Tree and buy Zen’vorka’s Cache. It has a 1 in 20 chance to contain, the goal
of all this, the Searing Scorchling battle pet. Little guy sells for 200k to 600k each, and
it’s a 1 in 20 drop chance. You’ll probably get 2 per month. So that’s 400k to 1 million gold a month. Per toon you do this with. Finally, we’re headed to panda portal palace
to put our mogu runes to good use. Go talk to Lorewalker Cho, there are 3 pandas
in front of him. There’s a guy on the right, Lorewalker Han,
who will queue you for mist of pandaria LFRs. Now there are actually 5 that have good pets,
50-100k each. and they’re all worth at least 50-100k but there are only two that I’d
recommend above all else. Halls of Flesh Shaping is one. It takes 5 minutes to run and drops the Living
Fluid battle pet. This only drops on LFR Primordius. And like, no one else is running it. It sells for 100,000 to 400,000 gold. You can also get the son of animus pet here. Another good instance is the downfall of garrosh. You’ve got the Blackfuse Bombling for 100k
off the first boss. Kovok off the second boss. And personally, I’ve heard Garrosh and Thrall
yelling at each other enough, I just leave instance before that fight. So, that is it! Takes about 30 minutes to do the route. With the LFR stuff it takes a little longer
but you only do that once a week. With some super rough napkin math, it’s about
1.3 to 1.8 million gold per month. Per toon you do this with. One final thing before I go. Y’all are gonna go out and y’all are gonna
try this. Some of y’all are gonna get lucky. If you do get a pet, come back and let me
know in the comments. I’ll give you a high five. If you haven’t sold pets before though,
please. They sell slowly. Dropping your price does not help them sell
faster, it just tanks the market. You undercut by 5%. Another person does. Rinse repeat for a month. It’s selling for a third of what it would
originally does. So please, do me a solid and only ever undercut
by one copper. But that is it. Subscribe if you wanna see more of my guides
in the future. There’s a little notification bell next to
the subscribe button, so click that. Also, these videos take a long time to make,
so if you liked it hit that thumbs up gurrrrl. Thanks for watching guys, have a great day. Good luck and happy gold making.

    Prices are BS

  4. M Willems says:

    Again untrue.. only 200k on our server. like everything you post its waaaay cheaper on argent dawn and not worth the hassle

  5. Evan PT says:

    Can you skip right to Kovok after Blackfuse, or do you have to do the shitty spoils of pandaria lol

  6. thesynergy2 says:

    I wonder if farming the crabs in Timeless Isles is worth more than the pet run?

  7. Kyle George says:

    Your puns are awesome and subtle. I appreciate the confidence in the delivery. Well done sir!

  8. Brando says:

    Quick question, does it affect sell price if the pet has a few levels? I have the Jademist Dancer and the option to cage him but I think he's level 7.

  9. Bryan Wright says:

    First run of UBRS and got the little Lanticore

  10. Depopa says:

    150k for jadefire? haha yeah totally nice troll bro i have 2 of em and i remember them dropping like candy in mop

  11. Depopa says:

    dude i cant believe theres 2% droprate on jadefire spirit i literally got 3 of them back in mop and i threw one away cuz i was retarded and thought "i alredy have 2" theres no way its a 2% drop chance

  12. Thomas Jackson says:

    I got the pets

  13. John Willy Flaten says:

    I have a ton of rare gear/pets etc on AH but stuff like that never seems to sell for me on my realm, like 99.9% of all the gold ive made is herbs/ore xD

  14. Fergulix says:

    best quest in the vanilla was the linken quest chain in ungoro crater imo.

  15. NeverDieAgl says:

    Hi, I dropped spineclaw crab, but… i have no idea how to sell him. It's a soulbound item.

  16. wariorso7 says:

    eeh price of lanticore is 10k on my realm i spend 2 days of farm on 11 char before i check price of it …

  17. Sean Buvala says:

    The puns. They hurt my ears. <giggle>

  18. warped vynil says:

    in your expert opinion what's the most efficient way to come up with 100k in a week? you would b awesome if could get back to me on that.. hopefully this week o.0

  19. THENOOB22 says:

    This was unexpectedly pleasing to watch, quite funny. Great guide!

  20. ageofbogyo says:

    Haha funny, market price is the price people put stuff into the AH.

    It does not mean they sell on those astronomical prices. You can put any in for 5 million and it will show as the market price 😀
    TSM is notorious about telling you prices about posted auctions but if you check average sale price/sale rate in it that is the only thing which gives an indication about how much it actually sells for.

  21. Stephen Vanboekel says:

    I got lucky but I got a problem, kinda of my own device. I kinda go where the wind takes me when playing with friends as a result I have many high level characters none of which are on the same server. I been farming to get the blizzard balance to consolidate them in one place so that by their talents combined I can be wealth with much less effort.


  22. ElleTV says:

    They might have changed Lanticore, but back when I farmed him there was a lot of discussion about personal vs group loot for him. I've killed him a total of 3 times, and only got a pet the first time. It might have changed now with only PL and legacy loot existing, I wouldn't know.

  23. NoWayG5 says:

    Sztos poradnik

  24. DS2 says:

    Did… did you seriously say don't be shellfish?

  25. Jae Shin says:

    I've always been curious about these. Do people actually buy these pets for 100000s of gold?

  26. vempriex says:

    Ah the things we spend for virtual goodies. I often wonder who set these prices that set off the domino effect.
    Thanks for the vid.

  27. steven gonzalez says:

    I watched the video went out and got my first pet from the searing gorge dungeon on your video haha nice! Ty

  28. Cirosh says:

    refreshingly good top X video. good job!

  29. Julian Stahler says:

    Anyone know if these still work?!

  30. Kaalen says:

    Takes alot of Krills he says. Don't be shellfish he says. Clawsome he says…

  31. Potato Troll says:

    Honestly? From what I've seen, nobody actually buys farmable pets for that much gold. Yeah they're on the AH for a lot but nobody buys them.

  32. Jeffrey Gleaves says:

    Lanticore isn't 100% drop unless they changed it. I've been seeing a lot of them on AH these days so maybe they have. The only other thing is these 100k price tags. You'll see them posted for that but they're not going to bring it. The spineclaw crab will and so will Knockoff Blingtron, but that's because they're really that rare. Seering Scorchling will because its a shit-ton of work. Fox Kit is weird. It used to be insanely hard to farm, but I started mining and herbing there and suddenly I was getting them all the time…..then it just dried up. It went from one every 100 or so kills to over 1k with nothing. Changed toons and started getting them again. I think they monkey'ed with the drop rate but put a limit on them. The Kit will sell for 30k, maybe 40k if you're lucky but it will die on the AH of old age if you're trying to get 100k for it.

  33. xBrazz says:

    H to the usky HUSKY STARCRAFT HERE

  34. Xaranar says:

    I got Son of Animus years ago. Only sells for 10k on my server.

  35. FJVO says:

    Im gonna start farming them and undercutting them in the AH.

  36. Petre e says:

    Panda LFR ?! wow can u do any expansion LFR? where are the npc's for them :)) mmm transmogs

  37. Denis Weimer says:

    Zen'Vorka's Cache may have a 1 in 20 chance for everyone else. But I've just collected my 150th and still don't even have the pet for myself yet. RNGs are evil.

  38. DraculFury Gaming says:

    What are the Runes of Fate for? You seem to skip their purpose 😀

  39. DraculFury Gaming says:

    A little tip i've found for the LFR part of the video. If you are fast enough, you can queue up ALL the required LFRs so it does them all in succession 🙂

  40. BlindGuardian050 says:

    Undercut the shit out of everyone and get your gold fast, don't listen to the losers telling you not to. Free market bitches!

  41. Matt W says:

    I just decided "hey I'm going to run over and try some of these" first Jadefire kill i get the pet

  42. Elite Gaming says:

    Thank you so much for this on thrall horde i made a killing 4
    =). Appreciated this very much so. Got the spineclaw 2 times while farming back to back the luck on that made a total of 600k

  43. adam lefever says:

    1st kill i got the Imp <3 your vids!!!

  44. Tut Tut says:

    lol I got 3 of those imps thinking they trash cause they dropped easily for me, hope they still got value haha

  45. dollahbill510 says:

    I primarily play on a Pve server. Do pets generally sell better on RP servers? Same with mog?

  46. Mohawkward says:

    Zen'vorka, did not find him yet. Thanks wowhead and shady directions.

  47. travis toth says:

    these aren't force spawning 🙁

  48. Coorslite says:

    I wish more people knew the 1 copper undercut rule 🙁

  49. Ironekk says:

  59. Lill Brinkan says:

    how come I got 2 rebellious imps and both are SOULBOUND ?

  60. Zuralani says:

    Sooo many puns. Good job

  61. Snowgoon says:

    If someone undercuts me by 1 copper for an item worth thousends of gold I undercut him by several %. Just because I find it really annoying to abort auctions and put them in again. I rather take less gold to not have to do it all the time or in the process I dump the price on that realm and move my pets to another server, where the competetion is less annoying.

  62. Jcewazhere says:

    How about undercut by 25%, make your own quick money and appease the local server goblin. 😛

  63. Jari Haukilahti says:

    Really.. I stopped caring about getting pets . The ingame petgame – the Ai is total crap and petabattles was ok in the beginning of Legion -now its just s h i t e – give my blues a game with greys and 3 levels bellow-Just s h i t e.Pet Ai start game with healing – I guess its clever and trying to fool me…

  64. bdunk650 says:

    I love how he says undercutting doesn't help sell, always tryna sell that pipe dream

  65. JourneyWithJules says:

    Link…Not Zelda…

  66. My2CΞnts says:

    Pets sell for shit on my server. I've farmed these pets, and have had them all for 5 months now. They don't sell at the prices TSM puts them for.
    Vial of the Sands is still number one goldmaker on the work/reward ratio, on my server. There must be a lot of new players flocking to the server, seeing that each player only have to buy a mount once per account.

    Further more, I been using TSM for a few months now, and my gold earning has gone up significantly.
    The only problem is, most people don't use it, and they don't know nor give a shit about what something should sell for, so they undercut and undercut until an item that should have made you a lot of gold totally worthless. AND to snipe-buy their undercut items in order to corner the market is no good either. They will keep coming back with the same item and undercut you again and again.

    Oh, and never EVER try to sell green gear for thousands of gold like TSM suggests. Just because some sap bought a ilvl 10 green cape for 50k once doesn't mean anyone else will. So be careful when TSM suggests you snipe-buy an item that costs 250g, making you believe you're gonna make a fortune off of it because it will never happen.

  67. Luri Ley says:

    I am going to show up on your doorstep and slap you with a fish for every clawful fishy pun you've made
