Ghostly Encounters

ghostly whelpling

People describe ghostly encounters in lots of different ways. People see apparitions or strange lights, sense a presence in a room, hear noises or feel a sudden drop in temperature. They smell a deceased relative's favorite breakfast cooking in the kitchen or hear a favorite song playing while the stereo is off. Objects fall from shelves and doors open and close on their own. The electricity goes haywire, causing lights to flicker or televisions to turn on and off by themselves. Sometimes, people don't experience anything unusual at all, but they notice strange apparitions or shapes when they look at pictures they've taken.

Is it a ghost?

Some ghost stories involve visible apparitions that are bound to specific locations or families. These ghosts often appear as a warning that someone is going to die. They aren't always human -- some take the form of animals. Similarly, some reports of ghosts involve apparitions that inform friends or family members of recent deaths or impending crises. Some paranormal researchers classify this as a form of telepathy rather than an actual ghost.

Other ghosts are reported to be the spirits of people who died violently or suddenly; they may re-enact their deaths or try to seek vengeance. For example, some people believe that North Carolina's Brown Mountain Lights -- flickering lights that appear on the slope of the mountain -- are the spirits of Native Americans who died in battle. Sometimes, ghostly reproductions of inanimate objects, like sunken ships or crashed cars, reappear after accidents or tragedies.

Then, there are the ghosts who are simply sticking around, either unwilling or unable to leave the Earth . Paranormal researchers often refer to these ghosts as earthbound spirits. An earthbound ghost may haunt a specific location, like its home, its favorite place to visit or the place that it died. It may be trying to pass a message to friends or loved ones, to complete a task that it started while alive or to hold on to its home or possessions. Some researchers and mediums claim to be able to encourage these sprits to let go of their ties to the Earth and move on to a spiritual realm.

For a lot of people, seeing, hearing or sensing a ghost is enough to prove their existence. But researchers have found several possible explanations for the phenomena most often attributed to ghosts. We'll look at them in the next section.­­

Some paranormal researchers believe that photographs containing orbs , or unexplained spots of light, are signs of ghostly activity. Some describe orbs as a specific step in a ghost's manifestation [Source: Utah Ghost Research & Investigation ]. Orbs are visible in pictures but invisible to the naked eye because the spirits react to infrared light from the automatic focus. Skeptics, however, think orbs have a physical cause, such as:

  • The camera's flash reflecting off of dust particles or moisture in the air
  • Water spots on the camera's lens
  • Defects in digital cameras ' sensors
  • Developing or printing errors

Any particular island?

Just got mine today from Islands. Ghostly skin. Nice looking.

Wowhead says its from Crestfall Island but there are no dragons there.

OMG, this lil fellow might be absolute glass cannon !!!! Just pair him with Poda  ( Uncanny Luck  + Feign Death ) and then Spectral Strike  + Instability ..... Add to them Lanticore Spawnling  with its Cataclysm  or any mechanical with Demolish   and you've got a team of real real murderers !!!!! ;))

PS. [EDIT] @ AinesPets: My summoned ghostly whelpling is crimson. 

Apparently there are TWO skins as I have three of them, one ghostly looking and two crimson ones :).

My summoned ghostly whelpling is crimson. He looks exactly like the crimson whelpling. Anyone else have this bug? I tried caging him and passing him to another account, but he is still crimson.

Despite the picture looking like a clone of a Crimson Whelpling, these little dragons are ghostly white and transparent and look quite good! They also have a pretty interesting and original magic-heavy moveset on an undead critter, something only shared by a few other pets. Very, very rare, though.

Ghostly Whelpling

Does anybody know exactly what they needed to do on crestfall to get this pet. I ran a ton of island expeditions when it was current,and was able to get every pet many times over, except for this one. I just went back to doing island expeditions again solo, heroic. From what I can gather it definitely drops from crestfall, is it mythic only? Do I have to kill something specifically, I have tried everything that I am aware of,I must be missing something, or is it possible it comes from the salvage crates you buy only? Any help is much appreciated.

Seems to be from the Crestfall Salvage crates only, the ones you buy with Doubloons. Wowhead quotes a 5% drop rate.

Should drop from the expeditions themselves as well. Salvage crates just have much higher drop rates for the same associated rewards. Nothing should be exclusive to them.

Thanks for the update. I never did much with Island Expeditions, was just going with Wowhead that shows the Ghostly Whelpling and a number of other items as only available from the crate. Does identify many of the items in crate as also lootable but not this pet.

Like I said,I have run the islands alot and never got it,while getting every other pet multiple times,so I figured it might be salvage crate only. The websites do mention something about undead orcs possibly, but I haven’t noticed any on the crestfall island, although maybe I am just not finding them.

Probably a combination of Crestfall and its rewards being added to the game relatively late (8.2) and salvage crates being added even later (8.3). Though I have to say, I checked several items myself and all of them (even stuff that was in the game starting with 8.0) is only ‘listed’ as dropping from crates. It was always the comments pointing out which island/enemy type was the source for the drop.

I was kinda hoping someone who actually remembers doing a crestfall island and getting one to drop would chime in just to verify it,oh well, I guess I’ll just keep on trying and buying crates. Thanks alot to all who answered.
