This pet drops from Pugg, a rare elite that can be found in the non-instanced version of Highmaul in western Nagrand (Draenor).

A group is recommended for defeating the rarespawn, as it has a large health pool.

The pet is personal loot but does not have a 100% chance to drop. You have a chance of receiving the pet once per day.

IMO I think manafiends are really underrated. Three or two with the combo of amplify magic, arcane storm, arcane explosion make a great strategy for specific fights. I found this so useful when going for the all magic pet achievements.

Because both moves attack the whole team the backline pets lose hitpoints almost as quickly as the front one, this is especially useful for battles like BFA Lozu. My only note is sometimes the breed does matter so collect afew as they all have just one breed type.

These pets, unlike the Kirin Tor Familiar, are magic based and sadly very easily eaten by the Mechanical Pandarian Dragonling that everyone seems to run these days. They are, however, very effective at killing birds. :)

I love collecting pets.  But I really hate the re-skins.  There should be ZERO reskins.  Also - while on that topic - each pet that is the same but has differernt stats - should have a slight difference in appearance.  i.e B/B, H/S - should look a bit different.

I got this pet a few days ago, and you do not need flying to get to its location. If you swim around the back-right side of Highmaul you can run up the beach to a wall with some rocks and logs sticking out of it. It's not easy, but you CAN jump from one rock to a log, to another log, and onto the top of the wall. I did so on a hunter.

9/6 - Either RNG is not liking me or the drop rate is lower on this one.  Have gotten 5 and 4 drops of other pets to 1 drop of this one.  On 2 accounts with 4 lvl 100's over last 3 days.  


9/7 - Another day and 3 more pet drops but not this one.

Can confirm this is currently a once a day loot, after first kill they drop  gold. Easiest way to get them fast is 1 kill then swap to an alt, they only have a couple of minutes respawn. Cagable and sellable on AH

Like almost all of the WoD Rares, it seems you can only get the 'special' loot (Pets/Garrison Resources) from these guys the first kill of the day on a character.

Do you need flying to get to this area?

Been farming this pet for hours and no drop. It's not easy for non pet / tank class to kill. Lots of health and hits hard. But not as hard as the other two mages ogre. The npc turn from Silver to gold after the first time killing him, I am not sure if it's a daily kill or you could farm him. I'll keep trying for this cutie.

Got this pet today although it seems the armory isn't updating right away or there is some other glitch cause I can't import it yet.  At any rate, it took 3 of us to kill the rare, probably could have done it with two but make sure you kill the trash around him first, they will run in.


Pet is similar to the other manafiend types except he is a baby pink, very cute.  I immediately got him to 25 but I haven't played with him yet so I can't comment on his abilities.

First created in the presence of Highmaul runes, this tiny manafiend really packs a punch!
