    Drop Pets
    -----------------
    M0-GUL Thrall Droid – Dropped from Karagga the Unyielding in Karagga’s
    Palace/Hutt Hospitality on normal and hard. It is a “rare” drop. 
    However, it has a higher chance to drop on Nightmare mode and has a
    chance to drop on most of the bosses in that difficulty.
    
    Taunling – Summoned from a Exotic Animal Crate which drops from
    Gargath, one of the world bosses on Hoth.
    
    Midnight Rakling – Dropped from bosses in Lost Island Hard Mode. (Has 
    not been confirmed to not drop in normal mode as, well, nobody is
     really doing normal mode so can’t really be checked enough to determine)
    
    Orosquab – Hatched from a Mysterious Egg. Mysterious Eggs are dropped 
    from bosses in Lost Island Hard Mode. (Has not been confirmed to not
    drop in normal mode as, well, nobody is really doing normal mode so

    Deep Wriggler - Dropped from the final boss in Terror from Beyond. May
    be hard mode only.
    
    Dwedtoof – Dropped from Dreadtooth on 5+ Stacks. (Requires Friend Rank

    spawn instead of Ancient Gree Destroyer, and Xenoanalyst II. (Requires
    Friend Rank with the Gree to activate)
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Adventure Pets
    -----------------
    Orokeet – Hatched from an Unusual Egg. Unusual Eggs can be found in 
    nests on Alderaan, Taris (Republic Only), and Balmorra (Imperial Only)
    with a 4 hour respawn time. Each pair of nests shares the respawn 
    timer so once 4 hours is up, it can appear in either nest regardless
    of which nest it was taken from to begin with.
    –Alderaan Coordinates (Every pair shares a spawn timer):
    ——X: 168, Y: 1836 – Under the broken bridge in the Serene Meadow in
    Alsakan Lowlands. You need to jump down to a horizontal log from the
    lower side (Recommended to jump down from the rocks–not the actual
    broken bridge) and then run across and jump down onto the next.
    X: 215, Y:1787 - Also by the Broken Bridge mentioned above, head to 
    these coordinates and jump straight down to another nest (you should
    be able to see it when you look down from this spot). Much simpler
    than the other--though, this jump will take nearly all your health
    so be sure to be at full health when jumping or if you can, use a
    cooldown to reduce damage.
    ——X: 1930, Y: -1451 – Involves you going up a mountain and through
    a cave all the way around and then jumping down to land on top of
    the entrance of the cave you entered where the nest is. Also has
    several enemies (Mostly Killiks) around.
    ——X: 1825, Y:-1384 – Like the above, but instead jumping above 
    where you exit the cave instead of the entrance.
    ——X:-2469, Y:-293 – Involves going past House Panteer and climbing
    up some wreckage. Need to use the MGGS to get to the highest area 
    where the nest is. Will have to run through some enemies.
    ——X-2517, Y:-301 – Not far from the one above, at X:-2524, Y: -314,
    look up and to the South East and you will see a Magnetic Stabilizer.
    Use your MGGS on it and you will be taken up to the nest.
    –Taris (Republic Only) Coordinates:
    ——X: 1363, Y: 75 - TThese are actually two nests right next to
    eachother--one to the left of this spot and one to the right
    (don't worry, it's just a walk!). To get there, you want to climb
    up the pipe at X: 1182, Y:263. Jump off it and head to your right
    and around. When you get to the far edge (X: 1104, Y:224), look
    down to see some metal sticking out and walk onto it and then,
    jump to the platform across from it (I'd recommend jumping across
    on a speeder). Then, just head straight back and you'll find the
    2 nests up and to the right on the grassy hill.
    –Balmorra (Imperial Only) Coordinates:
    ——X: -1782, Y: 1208 - These nests are near Grandfather in the
    northern area of his heroic area (To the North East of where he
    spawns). You'll either need to climb up the rocks and jump down or
    run through the exhaustion zone to get to them. Like Taris, the
    nests are across from one another.
    
    Taunlet – At X:834, Y:759 in the area of Glacial Fissure with
    the volcanoes and stuff. There is a little opening between 
    two sides of the area that you need to go through after using
    the Ice Scabbler Jerky and getting the buff from it. When you
    do, a Tauntaun (“Frightened Taunlet”) will spawn at the end
    of the area that you need to click and use the NVSCCS on.
    -–QUICK TIDBIT: Unlike the Magenta Crystal, not all people 
    with you in the party/ops are required to have the buff/Ice
    Scrabbler Jerky–it only spawns the Tauntaun, the NVSCCS is
    the only thing required to actually capture it so if one 
    person has the buff on, they could let anyone within the
    hour get it (You may need to run out and back in though
    if the Tauntaun disappears) as long as the buff doesn’t 
    disappear and they haven’t gotten their pet yet (so
    you’d have to get your pet last).

    How to get Requirements Needed
    -------------------------------
    How to hatch an Orobird Egg
    ------------------------------
    To hatch the Orobird Egg, you need to go to Tatooine. From
    there, you want to:
    1. Get the Water buff from a Water Vaporator. (There’s some
    right near the taxi area in Anchorhead and one right in the
    middle of the second town on the Imperial Side).
    2. Head to the Czerka Archeological Site in the Dune Sea and
    go behind it (At about -2410 by -335). There will be a 
    bunch of solar panels and behind one, an odd machine that
    has solar panels facing inside.
    3. Go under the strange machine and stay there until your
    egg hatches. It will then turn into an exhaustion zone
    (and take away the water buff) once the egg has hatched
    and you will need to run out.
    
    Only hatch ONE EGG AT A TIME or it can glitch.
    
    -------------------------------
    How to get Ice Scrabbler Jerky
    -------------------------------
    Besides someone making it for you, you can get the schematic
    from:
    1. The final bosses in Kaon Under Siege HM
    2. Snowblind, one of the Hoth World Bosses. (He also can
    sometimes drop the jerky himself)
    3. Gargath, the other Hoth World Boss.
    4. Primal Destroyer, the Belsavis World Boss.
    
    You can reverse engineer the jerky (if it drops) to try and
    learn the schematic, however, you can not reverse engineer
    one made for you. The recipe requires 300 Biochem to learn
    and uses the following ingredients:
    1. 4x Cosmic Trace Particle – Grade 4 Biochem Compound
    2. 4x Inert Virus – Grade 4 Biochem Sample
    3. Ice Scrabbler Liver – Random drop from various mobs on 
    Hoth and Ilum.
    4. 2x Pickled Space Worm – Can be bought in the cantina on
    Balmorra and Hoth for 350 Credits each.
    5. Ice Fern – Can be found and gathered by anyone on Hoth.
    Respawns every 30 minutes.
    –Coordinates:
    ——X:-3085, Y:-1756
    ——X:897, Y:799
    ——X:-2823, Y:193
    
    ---------------------------------
    Where to get the NVSCCS and MGGS
    ---------------------------------
    The NVSCCS and MGGS are both sold at the same place and by the
    same person, Lain-Ricie on Alderaan. You can find her in the
    Juran Mountains at X: 1870, Y: 1089. The NVSCCS costs 5,000 each
    and the MGGS costs 10,000 credits. The NVSCCS is a useable item
    and you can buy multiples (which stack up to 5). The MGGS is a
    permanent item, but is unique so you can not have more than one
    at a time.
    
    ------------------------------------
    Where to get a VIP Lounge Wristband
    ------------------------------------
    The VIP Pass is given to free to Users who bought a Digital
    Deluxe or Collector's Edition versions of SW:TOR. If you
    did not buy either of those versions however, you may 
    purchase a VIP Lounge Wristband for 1,000,000 Credits
    from either Bartender in the Cantina (the center area)
    of the Fleet,
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Beta Pets
    -----------------
    The following pets were available in Beta only. I am
    mostly just listing them here for archive purposes.
    If they ever become available, I will move them to
    the appropriate section. Some of these pets were 
    supposed to be available when the game went live, 
    but for whatever reason, never were.
    
    1. Smelly - Smelly was summoned through Fresh Cryomoss
    which dropped from high level mobs in Voss. However,
    supposedly only Vanguards could get it for some reason.
    
    2. L2-P2 - L2-P2’s Call Signal was given to all Beta Testers 
    during one of their Beta Weekends. It was supposed to be able
    to be bought from a Stim Vendor on Coruscant, but the Stim 
    Vendor never appeared (or if they replaced that specific one,
    L2-P2 has yet to be for sale).
    
    3. Lil' Probey - Lil’ Probey’s Codec was sold by a vendor. 
    Lil' Probey was supposed to be for sale at a Stim Vendor
    on Drommund Kass, but the Stim Vendor never appeared 
    (or if they replaced that specific one, Lil' Probey has yet
    to be for sale).
    
    4. Tynock - Gotten through a special summoning item. Never
    came over.
    
    5. Torchy/T0R-CE Mk 7 Assembly Kit - Due to it's name, it 
    was expected to be the Collector's Edition Pet. Whatever
    happened to it is unknown, but it has yet to appear
    in the main game.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    F.A.Q.
    -----------------
    1. How many pets are there currently in the live game?
    There are currently 41 confirmed pets that can be 
    currently used ingame.
    
    2. What server do you play on? 
    The Shadowlands (Previously Corellian Run before the server
    merger.)
    
    3. Do pets do anything besides follow you around?
    Nope. They are just for show :) Though, before they fixed
    the targetting error, my Little Sandcrawler made an awesome
    tank.
    
    4. Targeting Error?
    For a while, NPCs could target your pets and attack them.
    They actually took some damage for a while from AOEs, but
    that was fixed--targeting took a bit longer however.
    
    5. Can pets take damage?
    Sometimes Fall Damage, but they're not supposed to anymore.
    
    6. How do you use a pet? 
    Click your Abilities icon and then pick Pets. Just click
    whichever pet you want to use from there! 
    
    7. How do you dismiss a pet?
    Click your Abilities icon and then pick Pets. Just click
    whichever pet you currently have being used to dismiss it.
    
    8. Are pets tradeable?
    Unfortunately, most aren't. While items that are used to
    get a pet usually are (For example, all 3 Orobird Eggs (please
    keep in mind that one they are hatched, however, they are no
    longer able to be traded), Ice Scrabbler Jerky, NVSCCS, and
    DNA samples are tradeable), but the only actual pet, besides
    all the Cartel Market Pets, that can be sold or traded is the 
    Pale Rakling at the moment.
    
    9. Do you have to take care of pets in any way?
    Nope, they all stay perfectly fed, hydrated, and healthy
    forever! :D
    
    10. What happened to the Ganniffarl?
    It's name was changed to the Gannifari. It is not the first
    time a pet's name has changed by the time it was released
    (For example, Orokeet used to be Red-footed Orobird).
    
    11. I went back to a nest after 4 hours/waited at a nest for
    4 hours and it wasn't there! Isn't it on a 4 hour respawn time?
    It still is, however, for whatever reason they will usually
    spawn in the other nest near there when the 4 hours are up.
    
    12. I heard the Rhythm Augmentation Droid is a pet, but you do
    not have it listed. Are you missing it or is that not true?
    Technically, the Augmentation Droid is categorized as a pet in
    the data, however, that is the only way it is a pet. You can
    summon it, but that's about it. It will not follow you and
    will stay wherever you leave it (though, sometimes they may
    at least switch floors with you if you use an Elevator). What 
    makes a Vanity Pet, well, a Vanity Pet is the fact that it 
    follows you around passively. Though, some people consider 
    pets that do things along with following you around (Like picking
    up items or helping you fight) still Vanity Pets.
    
    Other items that some people consider pets like the Rhythm 
    Augmentation Droid (which can be gotten for 55K from the Security
    Vendor on the Fleet, for the record) are: Training Droid (From 
    getting a Digital Deluxe or Collector's Edition version of the 
    game), the Galactic Party Bomb (Requires Social Level 10. Costs
    100K and can be bought from the Social Vendor on Ilum), the Field
    Repair Droid (Legacy Perk--more so the first two ranks as the last
    rank kind of looks like your ship droid), the Field Mail Drop 
    (Another Legacy Perk), and the Ship Repair Droid (One of the 
    Legacy Ship unlocks--this one spreads across all characters).
    
    13. What is the Cartel Market?
    It is a cash shop for the game that you can purchase 
    various pets and items from for Cartel Coins.
    
    14. When was the Rakghoul Pandemic? 
    It was April 15th, 2012 until April 24th, 2012. The vendor might
    appear sometime in the future though.
    
    15. When was the Grand Acquisitions Race?
    It was August 14, 2012 until August 21st, 2012. Though, the vendor
    was around until August 28th, 2012.

    I do play on my republic character more, however,
    but I try to check my Imperial character at least
    once a day.
