if you have chars on different servers try them also as i have for other rares and found them.
After a server restart seems to be the best bet, as the rare pets added before 5.1 still seem to use the old spawn pattern, i.e. they spawn all at once rather than randomly.
I only need the minfernal and the quiraji guardling for kalimdor safari, and I can't get the guardling until summer, so I guess it's not the end of the world if I don't get a minfernal before then, but it would be nice.
I'm trying to catch a minfernal and I was under the impression that they spawn after killing the infernal sentry's in felwood, or at least that what it says in my pet book.
This is indeed what the book says, however I'm pretty sure it's wrong.
I have read several places that the pets do not share spawn-time with the mobs there.
Anyway, this is a rather popular pet + it's one of the rarer pets to find.
I would suggest camping the spawn place with chars of different realms. This is how I got mine - found it on the server Nagrand.
Also like mentioned, right after a maintenance seems to be a good time too.
And lastly, I heard some servers don't have Cross-realm-zones yet. I don't know if it's true. But in case it is, Felwood is usually a cross-realm-zone, in which case you could be lucky there too.
Nagrand is cross-realm unfortunately. However I have been able to find some of the rare pets on Nagrand, as there generally seems to be fewer people farming than on other realms I got chars on, might be just me though.
Lastly. I would also suggest using something alike Terrible Turnip for catching pets. It has an attack that cannot kill an opponent, making it ideal for catching wilds pets with - at any level.
I personally didn't know about this when I found my Minfernal. And hence I was so afraid of my pet landing a critical strike on the last attack.
My friend got a rare blue after making the CRZ bug by catching a flightpath from Nordrassil to Fireheart point and spamming /target min and interact with target buttons.
I think if a pet is this rare, then they should all be blue. Or they need to sort out CRZ because its really not funny having 5-10 people camping a 24 hour spawn when theres plenty up on our own realm we cannot access. Thunderhorn being paired up with Magtheridon, Stormrage and some other huge realms is making people exploit these bugs, and they don't care less because they feel its the only way.
Didn't know Argent Dawn wasn't CRZ. Thought it was only certain other language realms :P
Well its limited because its an rp realm and there aren't many of those, and also it is a very high pop rp realm. I don't know if it got left out on purpose or if its simply because its population is high enough that its never needed to phase into CRZ.
Worse thing is that i know there are minfernals on my realm - if i fly in on a flight path i can see them on the floor but on landing crz kicks in and they disapear, also npc scan picks them up on login but again crz kicks in and they vanish!
BLIZZARD ENABLE CRZ OPT OUT FFS!! If people are that bothered about being on a low population realm they should pay for a realm transfer!

Yeah that keeps happening when I look for scourged whelpings in northrend. It's such a pain. x-x
I don't like CRZ :<
On a higher note, I did at least get a scourged whelpling. Poor quality, but oh well. At least I have Northrend Safari now.
I've got both rare minfernal and scourged whelpling this way. And also the small yeti from Feralas.
I created a DK on a RP realm, as these aren't high pop and only share CRZ with other RP realms. It took me two hours to level it up and get off the starting zone, then I headed straight to felwood. Logged in off and on yesterday with no luck, but I did notice I often had felwood to myself for long periods. This morning I logged in and one was waiting for me. Happy days.
If you really really want this pet, this seems like a sure path... No guarantees but worked for me at least.
