Hi all! About an hour ago I flew into Orgrimmar and found that NO one was waiting for the spectral egg to spawn, so I parked myself there and began the wait.

Then at roughly 9:48 realm time, Khadgar server, the egg spawned and I tamed the raptor...I love this pet already! I was amazed....and grateful that the other two hunters who came to wait after me let me have him! :D

Thought I'd include the time I got him so those of you who still want him will have a rough idea of when he might pop up next..and good luck! :)

Congratulations!

I find that I get more comments about Gon from other players than I do about the spectral gryphon, even though I don't see many hunters with the gryphon, especially Horde hunters.

Congratulations on your new companion.

What sort of timer is that egg on? I don't know if I have the patience to camp him, but he is most definitely attractive.

Oh, and I suspect the "more comments about Gon" than the gryphon might be because, well, gryphons are so.. Alliance? I don't know, it's a guess. While I find the gryphon very pretty, I don't find it appealing as a companion because it has too many associations with Alliance for me.

I only know it's a few hours..not sure on the specifics. I'd love to have the Gryphon, but I'm pretty sure I'd be killed alot waiting for it XD

While I'm sure it varies by server, I was actually able to wait on the hill just above the lake in Stormwind on my Tauren hunter without getting attacked. When I was trying to get Gon, I didn't bother the Alliance hunters I'd see there camping for him.

Congrats! :) I tamed the Lost Spectral Gryphon this morning and Gon last week.

Remember - if you have a hard time finding them, you can always aim for restarts, which is what I did. Be the first to log on (you have to be on your game in the logging in, if it fails, try again, etc.) and the egg/feather will be up.

If anything, I'd suggest trying that for the opposite faction one.

Thanks for the tips!

I myself also leave opposing faction hunters alone if they are waiting for a pet too. It's only right. I'd want to be treated the same you know?

Fellow hunters aren't a problem. It's the damn alliance Demon Hunters and Deathknights siting on the nest waiting for any horde hunters to show up.

I don't know how so many 110 DHs/DKs have so much free time as to be sitting there so often.

There was a survival hunter and some human male paladins near it on MG. I really don't know what it is with human dude paladins that they see everything in life as a nail. Maybe it is because the light gave them a hammer.

Obviously, it's gonna vary by server, but SW was pretty quiet when I hung around looking for the gryphon feather. Fortunately, aside from the occasional Alliance hunter camping and Whatshisname Jaxon patrolling around, there wasn't really anyone around most of the time. I just sat quietly on the hillside by the lake.

Honestly, I think most folks heading to/from the flight master are in tunnel vision mode and don't even look off to the side.
