Dragon whelps (aka dragon whelplings, dragonlings, or broodlings) are the smallest member of the dragonkin species, representing the offspring of a brood. And as a result, are easily the weakest variation of dragons. In most cases however, where there are whelps, their larger cousins are always close by.

Types of whelpsEdit

Dragon whelps come in a variety of colors and are found in many different locations.

Even smaller and weaker than dragon whelps, are dragon whelplings. These are pint-sized companion dragons that in most cases, are dropped by the dragon whelp versions of themselves.

A Crimson Whelpling, which is summoned by the "Tiny Crimson Whelpling" item, is a dragon whelpling battle pet, belonging to the Dragonkin family.

SourceEdit

Current

The Tiny Crimson Whelpling drops from any mob within the Wetlands at an extremely low rate.

Pre-Cataclysm

Tiny Crimson Whelpling dropped from Crimson Whelps, Flamesnorting Whelps, and Red Whelps in the Wetlands. There were also Lost Whelps in the general area, but they did not drop this pet. The level of these whelps ranged in the mid-20s, so this was the first whelpling pet new characters had the chance of obtaining, and also the easiest for higher level characters to farm.

AbilitiesEdit

[Breath] 1 21 100% Pet type dragonkin
[Healing Flame] 2 70 3 turns 100% Pet type dragonkin

[Deep Breath] 20 50 100% Pet type dragonkin


NotesEdit

The drop rate of this pet is 0.1% (one in every thousand kills)[1] and takes an incredible amount of patience and determination in order to get one. Due to the difficulty of obtaining one, and thus their rarity, they can sell for fairly large amounts of gold on the Auction House, at least as far as pets are concerned. The table below shows the cumulative probability of getting at least one after a number of kills.

Probability of at least one drop in X kills
Number of Kills 100 288 401 693 1386 2302 2995 4603 9206
Cumulative Probability 9.5% 25% 33% 50% 75% 90% 95% 99% 99.99%
Neither the drop rate nor cumulative probability increases based on the number of monsters you have already killed.

The Tiny Crimson Whelpling is also the chosen forum avatar of US CM Eyonix.

A Dark Whelpling is a dragon whelpling battle pet, belonging to the Dragonkin family.

SourceEdit

Dark Whelpling drops from Scalding Whelps in the Badlands and from Searing Whelps in the Dustwallow Marsh. The Badlands is the place of choice as the Dustwallow Marsh whelps are mixed in with a lot of other mobs that don't drop the pet. On the flip side, you will probably be dealing with more competition at the Badlands on more populated servers.

Orb of the BlackwhelpEdit

Darkwhelp

A player in Blackwhelp Form.

In-game, players who finish part of a chain quest (Meeting Note) can purchase a single Orb of the Blackwhelp until used up of its 4 charges. These orbs allow the player to transform himself into a larger black whelp. When a player uses Noggenfogger Elixir in this form, they can do a "mini-me" with their pet Dark Whelpling. Though this form is broken through combat or even falling, players like to use this item to "mess around".

Patches and hotfixesEdit

  • 0200Bc icon Patch 2.4.3 (2008-07-15):
    • Now makes a sound when clicked on.
    • Icon changed.
                  Its previous icon was Inv misc head dragon 01
  • 0100WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.4.0 (2005-05-05): Tiny Black Whelping item changed to Dark Whelpling to reflect the name of the creature summoned.

Combat DragonlingsEdit

Mechwhelp

Mimicked to represent dragon whelps, engineers have developed schematics to create a mechanized version of these tiny dragons known as dragonlings. Unlike whelp companions however, dragonlings will fight for you, are only temporary, and are restricted to engineers.
