If you don't have the pets listed, 3 Saurolisk Hatchlings and a stack of bandages will do it eventually.
FD the Gate, then Rush his Dodge (for speed boost), Burrow. Burrow hits after second Gate then Rush till you die. Might have used Rampage on one of them I don't recall. Took a lot of tries but with a crit or 2 finally got it.
Bought these guys for Snozz and wanted to get my coin's worth out of them.
Azure Whelpling: x/x/2 Emmigosa may be able to substitute IF you have a P/P NFD (H/P or P/B may work w/ substitute but it is untested). (The reason NFP must have power is to make up for the loss of power that derives from the switch to Emmigosa from Azure Whelp).
Nether Fraerie Dragon: 2/2/1 Any Breed. (TO REDUCE RNG SIGNIFICANTLY: Before you start the battle with Shadeflicker, get NFD's health around 850. But make sure Silver Dragonhawk and Azure Whelpling have full health at the start). EDIT: MAKE SURE NFD HAS LESS HEALTH THAN AZURE WHELPLING BUT MORE HEALTH THAN SILVER DRAGONHAWK AFTER SILVER DRAGONHAWK EATS VOID GATE.
1 Flamebreath > Azure Whelp comes in 2 Pass 3 Ice Tomb 4 Pass > NFD Comes in. 5 Life Exchange (Ice Tomb then hits) and Shadeflicker is stunned for 1 round. 6 Moonfire 7 Pass > Silver Dragonhawk comes in 8 Flamebreath (After flamebreath Shadeflicker will use phaseshift) 9 Swap to Azurewhelpling who will soak the damage and die. 10 Swap to NFD 11 Pass (soaking damage and dying). 11 Silver Dragonhawk Hatchling is swapped in via Void Gate 12 Conflagration (Before Conflagration, flame breath dot was still up. Shadeflicker shouldn't have phaseshift either) 13 Quills
If H/P or P/B NFD work w/ Emmigosa leave a comment and let other people know please.
Perfect, worked first time for me today. I didn't have the sprite darter hatchling so off I went to feralas and settled in for some serious farming and the thing dropped within two minutes.....My first ever world pet drop... and I've been playing since vanilla.... The RNG Gods took pity today.
