It is a very very rare drop from elementium nodes.
I can confirm this drops from elementium nodes, I got one on my 3rd node i hit but have not seen one since and i have mined like 1000 elementium nodes while leveling
it it BoE or BoP?
You mine it from an elementium node......BOE
My husband mined one.
I collect pets so I asked if he'd give it to me (cute look, bats eyelashes).
He gave me a very baleful look.
Gotta Catch Em All!
Got one from an Elementium node Uldum in the first few hours of Cata launch while skilling up mining. I tried selling it for 20k, but a couple more appeared on the AH overnight, so I settled for 10k today.
Rare, but not so rare that you'll hardly ever see it on the AH. Probably will be down to 5k pretty soon, maybe lower.
It's not actually that rare, I already got two ... I did farm over 2k veins since launch but we are barely 3 days into Cataclysm and I've seen 5 on alliance AH on Sargeras EU. Trying to get 6k from one and 10k from the second one, depending on purchase rate, we might see these pet flooding us soon.
I too have mined a little over 2000 nodes since launch (Realm First! Illustrious Miner), and I have had 2 drop. Seems to be consistent 1/1000 drop (0.1%) in this very small sample size.
For all the posts mentioning how this pet "isn't that rare", please remember that it is (as of this post) just a couple days after the expansion, and you have a LOT of people mining a LOT of ore. If you're going to go out and mine 2-3k ore hot and heavy, you're going to see a couple of these drop even if it has the average drop rate of just under 1%. For every server where 3-5 showed up overnight, there are servers where no one's seen these on the AH yet. I would trust the WoWHead drop rate while remembering that a low % drop rate may not seem "very rare" if there is a lot of turnover happening (ie, a disproportionate number of nodes "being killed".)
Will this pet follow you up when you fly?
i just got one after farming almost non stop since launch give or take a few days. Now the hard part.... weather or not to farm for another to sell...
This pet has a unique model which means that you can't obtain another pet which looks the same. The Elementium Geode does not have any significant animations. It simply floats around, and the outer crystals orbit the geode.
How to get it
This pet is rarely found while mining from
Rich Elementium Veins
. The Elementium Geode is not bind on pickup, so it can be purchased from miners.(##RESPBREAK##)12##DELIM##Sas148##DELIM##
This thing reminds me of the Crystalline Entity from Star Trek. Hopefully it doesn't wig out and destroy Azeroth.
Before I continue with my post, I'll say this so you don't have to scan my post: this is useless information.
I think I can label this rock as lucky. Very lucky. I paid 1400g for it, prices were high at the time. Declining to 600g. Best 1400g I've spent, possibly. This is an awesome pet, very shiny.
Anyways, I took this pet on the Magister's Terrace, where I would be farming the phoenix hatchling for the next few days. I had the pet out the whole way, and thankfully, the hatchling dropped my first try, saving possibly hours of hard work. Now, I was hooked on my phoenix. I always had him out. And when I decided it was time to farm the Raven Lord, I took my phoenix down to Heroic Sethekk Halls too. I killed Anzu, and there was no mount. Today, I went in when the heroics reset, this time with my Elementium Geode buddy, and killed Anzu. To my surprise: a mount.
Before you go on preaching about your RNG, screw you. This pet is lucky. It's level of awesome is so great, you could hope to be a fourth of it's worth in a thousand years, maybe half if you're lucky.
Buy this pet. Love it. Nurture it. Polish it. Have sexual intercourse with it. By any means, treat it as best as possible. It will repay you in the end.
This vanity pet may cause confusion during the Corborus encounter in the Stonecore on heroic mode. During my visit there a day or two ago, 2 DPS thought this floating geode was one of the adds that spawns after he shoots crystals at you.. ended up wiping because they couldnt kill the last geode... lol

It's so cute!
... I think.
Now on the Auction House, an Elementium Geode pet for only 12000g, well Blizz you know us too well, now it's time for a catchphrase: 'Right-Click to summon your brick'
there seems to be no stats on the percentage of this getting mined from the deposits anyone know?
I mined my Elemental Geode from a regular elementium vein in the Twilight Highlands. Im guessing any vein will do.
Just scored one of these while farming elementium in Twilight Highlands. They only sell for about 700g on my server, though, so I think I'll be keeping it.
I'd like it if miners could dig up a larger version of this (call it Elementium Boulder or something) and use it as a flying mount.
These are 65g in the AH on my server, and there's lots of them. You all can stop hyperventilating :P
This pet will now fly with you. Yay!
edit: downvoted? really? that's so cute...
This rock can fly
I thought this was BoP and I already learnt this so ive destroyed at least 5 of them from by bag and the latest one about 10 minutes ago i've submitted a GM ticket for after learning its not BoP and sellable
I find it a useful PVP pet, since it floats near my toon's head. A lot of times, I see opponents targeting it, which gives me a slight edge >:-)
I've just mined this and dont know whether to sell it or equip it. Advice?
funny thing about chanse is that when you have a 1% drop chanse you can mine 10 ores and have 10 drops while someone else mines 990 ores and have no drops at all.
10 +990 = 1000 10/1000 = 1% drop chanse
you have to be lucky as well.
this is MY rock..there is many like it, but this one is mine
i picked up two of these in one day. kept one and sold the other for 120g. couldnt sell it for any more than that..
i got this from the 1st Rich Elementium Vein i mined was shocked to find the drop rate is low
Seems like the Rich vein has the lower chance of getting this companion.
Been farming Veins for many months..
You perform Mining on
You receive loot:
You receive loot:
I've gotten three of these in the past three days farming in Uldum. Got them all from regular Elementium veins. As others have said, he flies with you :)
I just love this pet. There is something about its... "Inanimate-object-turned-to-pet" magic that makes it so lovable and adorable. I just love watching this stone follow me.
So much so that sometimes I find myself a victim to "accidents" ... there are to many cliffs in Wow
As a side-note I think it would be awesome if we got an "Energized Elementium Geode" that has electricity arcing around it and moves around a lot, like, disassembles and reassembles, I do love active pets a lot...
You could also sell it to does pet collectors who are not miners, always nice when they make pets who are related to a certain profession Bind on use.
Just bought one of these from the AH for just 100g on EU Ragnaros :)
You can earn many golds by farming this companion. Simply farm elementium from
Rich Elementium Vein
(if you have 525 in mining you can mine
I earned it after cca 100th try. Then you will probably have many elementium ores which can be sold on AH (and pryite too) for high amount (70g per stack on my server) so you will maybe have about 600 ores (with guild perk) so it can be sold for
and some pyrite, you will maybe have about 50-80 ores (100-150 with luck) which can be sold for example 100-150g stack so
600g (1125g with luck).
It means :
Elemental ores = 2100g (cca)
Pyrite ores = 600g (1125g)
And if you dont want you new cute stone you can sell it too for about 1000-2000g on AH! (
so you can earn 5225g!
Got this yesterday after about 6 hours of mining in Twilight Highlands, totally caught me off guard as I never knew it even dropped, but now I have another pet ready for MoP >.<
I finally got the Elementium Geode from a Rich Elementium Vein after 645 attempts on Rich Elementium Veins and Elementium Veins.
The Rich Elementium Vein I got the Geode from was located on the coordinates (51,37) in Deepholm, just north of the Temple of Earth.
Also, while farming the Geode I made about 34k total gold by selling the Elementium Ores on the AH. So it is also a great way to earn gold. The amount of gold you can make of course depends on luck and the AH prices on your server.
I hope this was helpful for some people! Good luck farming!
Funny was just reading that this is only from mining nodes, i got mine from looting one of the geodes in Crimson expense while doing dailies there. Sometimes they get cought in aoe and this one dropped it. Not sure if that was a bug or what, it is already prob about a year ago and you don't hear me complain :).
I've farmed well over 500 stacks of elementium and finally, yesterday after almost 2 years (since Cata expansion) the Elementium Geode dropped for me, Twice :)
So dont give up, it will drop ;)
Grabbed 7 of those for around 75g each in cata, and now they are worth over 2k ! I suggest you buy a bunch if they are still cheap on your server because they will become very rare since no one is really farming elementium ore anymore :-)
Someone has been bored and busy lol
Just received one in a
for downing Galleon. Must be quite a few dropping as AH prices for these wee guys on my server has plummeted.
I must have gotten a good deal, as I just bought one for 55g. Lucky me.
Oh, i was farming Elementium nodes for a really long time and today i found this thing in one of my bags xD... Didnt know that you can get pets with Mining... Cool surprise xD
