Sun Darter Hatchling! Cave of Consumption and Gold Making Guide

Sun Darter Hatchling!  Cave of Consumption and Gold Making Guide


Hi! I’m Hazel, and today I’m going to walk you
through exactly how to get your very own Sprite Darter Hatchling pet in WoW. I’m also going to talk a little bit about
how to go about making gold off of the consumables and mats needed to get the pet. So the gist of it is the WoW Secret Finding
Community found a cave in Northern Winterspring called the Cave of Consumption. While inside, you’re silenced so you can not
use spells or toys. There are a bunch of obstacles, and you’ll
need to use a variety of consumable items in order to get through the cave and loot
your Sun Darter Hatchling pet. Many of the consumables are tradeable, so
you can pick a lot of them up at your Auction House or make a healthy amount of gold by
farming and selling them. So here is the full list of exactly what you’ll
need. I’ll paste it in the video description as
well. Do not go to the cave without having everything
on this list, and don’t use anything yet. You need one each of the six Major Protection
Potions. Fire, Frost, Holy, Arcane, Nature and Shadow. These are craftable by Alchemists and available
on the Auction House. The recipes are rare drops from Burning Crusade
dungeon bosses and world mobs and they require an Alchemy skill of at least 360 to make. They require Primal Elements such as Primal
Fire, Mana, Shadow etcetera and they all take Mana Thistle. All of these factors mean that it takes some
doing to go back and craft these protection potions, so expect to pay a fair bit to snag
these on the Auction House. Do make sure you’re getting Major Protection
potions, not Greater and not Mighty. Major. You’ll need one Ethereal Oil, which is another
thing made by Alchemists. It requires Alchemy 375 to make and two Glassfin
Minnows, which can be fished up in Crystalsong Forest. It’s tradeable and can be bought at the Auction
House. You’ll need between 10 and 15 Pygmy Oil, which
is a similar situation to the Ethereal Oil. Alchemists can craft it out of Pygmy Suckerfish,
which can be caught alongside other fish in Northrend. It requires an Alchemy skill of 375 to craft,
and they can be bought on the Auction House. You’ll need one Scroll of Intellect. Not a Major, Minor, Fancy or Fantabulous scroll
of intellect, just a straight up, item level 1 Scroll of Intellect. These can be crafted at Inscription Level
1 with a single Moonglow Ink, or bought on the Auction House. Because of the low barrier to entry of crafting
these, this shouldn’t be too expensive to buy. You’ll need a stack of Noggenfogger. This one’s easy- just head to gadgetzan in
Tanaris and buy it off of Sparkle here. You’ll need one Dire Brew, which you get in
the Grim Guzzler of Black Rock Depths. Keep talking to the Dark Iron Brewer NPC near
Spazzring until he passes out and drops his tankard. Loot that to collect your Dire Brew. You’ll need one Gordok Ogre Suit. This one is also buyable but the prices are
quite high and it’s easy to get yourself. Go to the Northern entrance of the Dire Maul
dungeon in Feralas, and run along until you get to the room with Slip’kik. Loot the basket of Ogre Tannin on the balcony
upstairs. Then, drop back down and trade it with the
goblin NPC for a Gordok Ogre suit. If you can’t find the goblin enable Track
Trivial Quests in your tracking menu. For the only Non consumable on the list, you
will need a Perky Pug Battle Pet. The Perky Pug is rewarded from the Looking
For Multitudes achievement. If you don’t have that achievement yet, you’ll
need to queue for random dungeons until you’ve grouped with enough random players. To go with your Pug, you’ll need a Little
Princess Costume. This can be bought from the pet vendor in
Dalaran or the Draenor Garrison for one single pet charm. Or, if you’ve never heard of a Pet Charm in
your life, you can buy the costume on the Auction House. You’ll need Scotty’s Lucky Coin. Prepare yourself because this is the worst
part of the whole thing. The coin drops off a rare imp named Scotty
in the Townlong Steppes of Pandaria. His home is tucked away in a hidden alcove
to the left side of a Mantid House that’s located at 21, 47. Scotty’s got a 7 minute respawn timer, and
the coin goes to one person per kill. At this time there’s no point in grouping
up or trying to multi-tag- it’s always going to be one coin per Scotty. I dearly hope that they change that in a hotfix. I was delighted to find a very civilized,
player-regulated line in front of the Scotty’s spawn point, with everyone waiting for their
turn to kill him and get their coin. Should you show up and find such a wonderful
display of player civility, I recommend respecting the line and waiting your turn. It’s both more polite and less frustrating
than playing the tag war game. You’ll need one Winterfall Firewater. This is a pretty common drop off of the Winterfall
Furbolg found in Winterspring. Since the cave itself is in Winterspring,
I picked this one up last on my way in. You only need one so you should be able to
find it quickly. These are also tradeable and can be bought
on the Auction House. Last, you’ll need a special consumable called
a Water Stone. You’ll get this one in the cave while you’re
completing the puzzles, so don’t buy it. You’re good to go. Once you’ve triple checked that you have EVERYTHING
on the list, it’s time to head to the cave. Fly to the very very northern tip of Winterspring,
up here. Follow these instructions very carefully and
do NOT click off any buffs until I tell you to. If you get teleported out, you’ll keep the
buffs and you’ll need them to get back to where you were. First, walk in until you arrive at a fire
wall. Use your Fire Protection Potion and walk through
it. Next, you need to use the other five Protection
Potions. There’s a one minute cooldown, so you’ll be
sitting here for a little bit. They’ve got a 17 minute duration, so it’s
no issue getting them all up. Once you have ALL SIX BUFFS, you can safely
walk through the green Fel Wall. Next you should see a Diligent Watcher Gargoyle. Use your Noggenfogger until you turn into
a skeleton, and walk past him. Now, the path forks. Go to the Wall of Vines on the right. Use your Scotty’s Coin to turn into an imp,
and pass through. In the pool, you’ll see little blue Water
Stones. Loot one and then go back to the fork. Use that Water Stone you just picked up and
pass through the Blue Wall. Next, you should see a Stone Watcher. Use your Dire Brew and become a Dark Iron
Dwarf to get past him safely. Now you come to a ramp leading up and a slope
leading down. Be careful in this area- if you jump off and
fall, you’ll be teleported out and need to run back. That’s no issue as long as you still have
all of your buffs, but you can avoid it by keeping yer feet on the ground! Head up the ramp and go to the Purple barrier
on the right. Use your Ethereal oil to get through it. Then, use the Gordok Ogre Suit and Winterfall
Firewater. Click the stone, place your arm in the hole
and you will get a Sign of the Second debuff. Now, back up and go to the gate on the left. Spam drink the Pygmy Oil until you turn into
a Pygmy, and then you can get through. You should see a Wisdom Cube up ahead. Summon your Perky Pug, target it and use the
Princess costume. Then, talk to the cube and Place Arm Beneath
Cube. You should get the Sign of the First debuff. With both Sign debuffs on you, you can now
carefully walk down the ramp and down the slope below. In this room, there’s a Tarnished Plaque on
the wall. You MUST CLICK THE PLAQUE. Do not skip clicking the Plaque. After you read the plaque, right click off
your Winterfall Firewater buff and use the Scroll of Intellect. Be careful not to jump into the water- just
walk down into the pool and go loot the Oddly Colored Egg. Congratulations on your awesome new pet! ! The Sun Darter Hatchling has average health,
low speed and pretty good attack. It’s first slot can be set to Blink Strike
or Sleeping Gas. The second slot can be Ethereal or Ancient
Blessing, while the third slot can be Consume Magic or Sunlight. That moveset is jam-packed with good stuff,
and to top it all off the Sun Darter Hatchling is bizarrely enough a Critter. That means you can use it on your Family Familiar
teams for Mousing Around, and it’s immune to getting stunned with the critter racial. It’s also just a really beautiful pet that’s
worth getting just for looks. So what if you have the pet and now you want
to make back some of that gold you spent on potions and oils. Or, maybe you couldn’t care less about the
pet but you’re all about getting some profit in on this whole shebang. Lucky for you, there are a bunch of options
and ways you can farm the relevant mats and consumables to sell on the Auction House. If you have an Herbalist, consider farming
Mana Thistle. It’s a key ingredient in ALL of the Major
Protection Pots, and it’s rare enough to find that the prices are sky high right now. The most frustration free place to farm Mana
Thistle in peace is inside the Serpentshrine Caverns Raid. Use some Bear Tartare to move quickly through
the raid, and kill the Underbog Collossus trash mobs. You can herb their corpses for a nice bundle
of BC herbs, which often include Mana Thistle. If you don’t kill bosses, you can reset the
instance up to 10 times an hour to farm these. I was getting 6-10 mana thistle from each
lap, which on my server was worth between 9 and 15 THOUSAND gold for a five minute run. If you’re an Alchemist, you can craft the
Protection Potions, the Ethereal Oil or the Pygmy Oil. The recipes for those protection potions are
1% droprates off of dungeon bosses and world mobs, so it’s a bit of an effort to get them
together. The oils are easier to craft, and the mats
for them are easier to farm as well. If you like fishing, grinding the Pygmy suckerfish
and Glassfin Minnows is going to be hot for a little while. Like, 500 gold a fish hot on my server. That’s going to die down at some point, but
the continued availability of the pet means they’re always going to be worth more than
they used to be. And if you hate professions and refuse to
touch them, there are other things you can do. If you can run fast, you can run and reset
Dire Maul to get Ogre Suits for those too lazy to get their own. Those were going for almost 10k each on my
server. Motes of Fire, Mana, Shadow, Life and Water
are all needed to make the primals for the potions, and their values are really high
right now too. You can kill Winterfall furbolgs to get Firewater
to sell, but you might need to fight other farmers for the spawns. So, that’s the deal with the Sun Darter Hatchling
and the Cave of Consumption! Full credit to the WoW secret finding community
for figuring all this out. Those are some incredibly determined people
and dang do they work fast. Thanks for watching! Let me know what you think, please consider
leaving a like if this video helped you and have a wonderful, wonderful day. Bye!

  1. Welcome to my Sun Darter Hatchling/Cave of Consumption guide! Here are some timestamps for you.
    0:37 – The full list of every consumable you'll need and where to get them
    4:42 – The Cave of Consumption walkthrough
    7:10 – The Sun Darter Hatchling's moveset and stats
    7:40 – Tips for making gold from the consumables (or making your gold back!)

  2. Decided to farm all mats by myself…I wasn't ready to pay 1-5k for the mats. So being an alchemist/herbalist I decided to go and farm it all myself…took me at least 3hrs more-less. Finally gathered all and went to the cave…did everything by the book but forgot to use the scroll of intellect at the very end for some reason…three times…so I had to run back to Feralas/BRD to get the new suit and brew…

    This is extreme by the amount of time/gold you need to spend and it does not end in the cave either, you gotta be extra careful there as well since slightest mistake will end up with you being ported out. Anyway got my pet, looks great, great set of moves.

  3. Hey Hazel thank you very much for taking the time to do these video's there very helpful!! Your the best keep up the good work and have a nice day

  4. I got my Sun Darter yesterday and I love it just as much as the original <3 Also note make sure to walk on the path behind the plaque to avoid getting teleported back at the last part.

  5. LOVE the vids! I tried to do this and went off of your written list while prepping and got to the cave to realize you forgot the fire protection potion on the list! No biggie since it was only the first you needed but maybe add it so people get it before they get to the cave? Thanks and keep it up! <3

  6. Thank you for the visual guide, Hazel! I process information much better when it is shown to me, so I only got lost once. (I have terrible sense of direction, IRL and in-game, unfortunately, haha.)

  7. This is awesome thank you very much, but you don't have the major fire protection in your list of things needed in the comments. But in the 4th paragraph you have it as the first thing needed…love your videos…i watch them all the time for my pet battles!!!

  8. Can you please make a video about which addons you use and why you use them? I Use a few put i always feel that there are some i should be using but i am not

  9. My main is an alchemist since Vanilla wow days so I had the recipes and could get all the rest pretty easy, Scotty's coin was the hardest to get, unlike Hazels server, I'm on a high pop pvp server so I had to battle not only horde but Alliance as well to tag him, I finally got him, omw to get my new Sun Darter, Thank You Hazel for your all of your great guides, other than the fact I'm almost old enough to be your mom, we are a lot alike, I love pets both in game and out, try to help people, cook a lot, have very long brown hair and am sweet also (try to be anyway). I know your mom is proud of who you are, you make the world a little brighter. keep up the good work. =D

  10. your explanation made the acquisition more realistic to me. I can't wait to get mine now 😄 great videos! 😊

  11. So to assist fellow pet fanatics I listed the potions for 499g a pop (which IMO is still highway robbery lol) and they sold in seconds lol…too low?

  12. still worth grouping up for Scotty; there's usually a dozen or more enemy gankers just waiting for pet people to come lol. My advice? Wait for 4 am 🙂

  13. 1) Wonderful video! 2) thanks for including the gold making portion 3) That lineup for the coin gave me a warm fuzzy feeling ^_^

  14. WOW, look at your list, there is no Fire Protection Potion listed and the very first thing you say to use is: FIRE PROTECTION POTION, ITS IN THE VIDEO i SEE NOW, LOOKING BACK, but not in ur list below the video

  15. I have done this on 3 toons and I can tell you that you DO NOT need to read the plaque at the end. I never clicked on it. I just took off the firewater buff then applied the intellect scroll then ran into the water and got the pet all 3 times. If it makes you feel better then go ahead and click on it, but it is not a requirement.

  16. the list above in the description is missing ,,, 1 Major Fire Protection Potion… don't forget this one too.. had to go back to get it

  17. Thank you for this guide! I got my Sun Darter Hatchling this morning and made 30k gold on the extra pots! They're going for about 2k gold each on my server. It took a bit of time to farm the mats, but it was totally worth it!

  18. Now we need to see you wreck people with a team of Sun Darter Hatchling/Spring Darter Hatchling/Nether Faerie Dragon. Shiny dragons unite!

  19. the moment when you get all the things on the list, get to the cave, and hear "click on your fire protection potion" only to see that because it wasn't on the list you have to fly all the way back and buy one </3

  20. You are missing the fire protection potion from your list! Arghhh! I printed out your list and it was missing.

  21. Wait, those pots have a 2 minute duration, wouldn't the first one wear off before you frank them all.

  22. after 2wks of asking chat and running mechnar for recipe(never got the recipe- and am an alchemist) I got a major fire protection potion.

  23. Watched several videos to be sure i didn't miss anything and your video was by far the most accurate and helpful. And one of the few to warn about not jumping off the ledges. Thanks!

  24. In the video you say one stack of Noggenfogger which is 5 but in the list of ingredients you say 20. does that mean I have to go back and buy some everyday?

  25. hey thanks for the guide, just letting you know "1 Major Fire Protection Potion" is not listed in the video description

  26. Thank you for the walk through. I did everything and accidentally picked up a dark iron ale instead of the transformation tool so I wasted literally all my mats except the coin and ogre suit. RIP 15k gold.

  27. Thank you so much for the guide! I just got mine. I don't think I've ever been so nervous doing something, I knew if I screwed up, 12k worth of mats was gone. After I crushed the water stone and walked through the water wall, I must have went too far through because it teleported me back to just before the gargoyle. Thankfully I was still a skeleton and could just walk right by, but then I had like 8 minutes CD on my scotty's coin, and 9 left on my protection buffs. I sat there until I had one minute on my coin (thinking I had to go through the vine again and get another water stone) and realized the water stone buff never left so I just walked back through the water wall to just beyond the other side, continued, and had no issues with the rest. This pet is GORGEOUS!

  28. Thank you Hazelnutty! Your guides are easy to understand, quick, and most of all fun! I also like that you put in some WoW trivia, lore or tips and tricks, for us lazy goofballs!!

  29. Cave of Consumption location: fly OVER the snowy mountains in northern Winterspring, the cave is on the coast. No waypoint shows up so I can't give you one.

  30. I just got mine today after finding this guide. I had no idea this even existed! Very happy to be an alchemist with all but 1 of these recipes. Thank you so much!

  31. Hey so thievideo show Major Fire Prtection Potion but the written list in summary doesnt, just fyi, if someone hasn't already mentions it, thx for the awesome videos

  32. nice clear instructions on point, pleasant, you are probably the best addon for people like me that enjoy pet battles, and on top of that you are very easy on the eye and you have a sweet voice, thank you

  33. Thank you, just got my sun darter hatchling 🙂 I had to farm all the recipes tho, since a few werent in the auction house so i decided to just get them myself instead of waiting till 1 pops up overpriced.

  34. I hate to say this, but I can't bite my tongue any longer, it's NOT Townloong, it's TOWN LONG>>>>>>>>>>

  35. Thank you. According to WowHead: "It seems you have to do EITHER the Gordok Ogre Suit/Firewater OR the Pygmy/Perky Pug+Princess, not both". I propose to test this once I've gathered the other mats since I don't have Perky Pug (I hate Dungeon PUGs).

  36. Thank Hazel, your guide was easy to follow. and I now have my Sun Darter Hatchiling. One issue I had was with the water stone. My video card is not the best and I had to go into my setting and raise my display setting to see the stone. Otherwise, it worked perfectly. BTW I farmed all the mats and recipes so now I can help guildies.
