Looks like mini-pet collectors are going to be unable to get the Scorchling
this year. Aredek posted in the official forums that the Scorched Stone
is no longer on the Ice Chest
's drop table from Ahune
I'm afraid that the Scorchling does not appear to be available this year, folks. I cannot say for certain whether or not it will be made available in the future; however, we encourage you to share your thoughts on the Suggestions forum if you would like to see the Scorched Stone be obtainable in some other way.
It's unclear why they elected to leave it out this year, however it almost looks like it might have been a simple error rather than a design decision. Either way, the historical drop rates for this were so low that most players won't be able to tell the difference. Also, despite this, the Lil' Game Hunter
achievement is much more easily obtainable now than it was this time last year, with the introduction of many new sources for non-combat pets.
Still, that's a very cute fireball.
