The Parrot Cage (Hyacinth Macaw) item teaches you how to summon and dismiss a Hyacinth Macaw, a parrot Companion. It is the rarest companion in the game.

## Source Edit

Parrot Cage (Hyacinth Macaw) drops from all mobs in the Stranglethorn Vale regions.

## Notes Edit

• This pet has the smallest drop rate in the game,[citation needed] at approximately 0.0005 = 0.05%[citation needed], and so takes an incredible amount of patience and determination in order to get one. To put the drop rate in perspective, killing 1400 of these mobs will give you a $1 - (1-.0005)^{1400} \approx 50\%$ chance to see this drop at least once. Due to the difficulty of obtaining one, and thus their rarity, they can sell for huge amounts of gold on the Auction House. Prices average from 10,000g to 20,000g on some servers, if it is seen at all.
• Now that it has been changed to an epic quality item, even new players are unlikely to mistakenly sell this bird for a low price.
• It used to only drop from Bloodsail pirates, but this was changed in a patch.
