How to get your own Phoenix hatching, aka the original fire bird!
Alludra the mage here, helping you get the pets without all the work.
One pet I have been hearing a lot about lately is the Phoenix hatchling. It seems everyone wants this little guy lately, and I know just where to get him!
You have to go all the way to the Isle of Quel'Danas and get to the end of the 5 man instance Magisters' Terrace (MGT). He only drops off the last boss, Kael'thas Sunstrider, the man who proves that tempest keep and apparent death is merely a setback!
The great thing about the phoenix hatchling is that it drops in both normal and heroic modes, so you don't have to be content with one run a day! It actually has a fairly decent drop rate too! So it shouldn't take all that long to farm him up. According to wow head, there's actually little difference in the drop rates between the two modes.
Finally some good news!
This instance is also pretty easily solo able, you can avoid most of the trash taking on only the bosses and the mobs that you feel are necessary. Even as a mage I find it pretty easy to waltz right on through, but then, I'm not exactly known for my survival instincts!
