A dozen times is nothing. I fought Lord Nightshade something like fifty or sixty times before he finally rewarded me with a Dark Fairy pet.

The pets are normally the rarest loot in the game. You have to have perseverance to win one, or incredible luck. (Don't discount luck. I was fighting General Akilles yesterday and I won two Boo Didleys. One would normally be remarkable.)

The pets are intended to be something that you work for.

I can't remember where to get the goul, but you can get a snowman from Pops O'Leary[The last boss in Ironworks] or from Jacques the Scratcher[The tower where Lady Miltop is standing in front of] These are both in MarleyBone and there's probably more places you can get a snowman.

The drops are totally random, might take one or one hundred! But, if determined you will get them! I try to remember when I don't get a drop i'm farming for that I am still getting xp AND I can sell the stuff I don't want or need for more gold.
Also, in instance areas the bosses don't respawn and you have to start over at the beginning if you don't get it.
Tip: When farming for a drop in instance area, if you don't get it, Open book and click on quit, then click play, that way you are back at the entrance and don't have to run back.

Here are the locations of the ghouls and snowmen:

GHOULS

Beetlejuice Drinker (ghoul/NO card)
- Defeat Prince Suten Sokkwi in Emperor's Retreat (Instance)
Krokosphinx, Krokotopia

Kanyo Diggit (ghoul /HAS card) -
- Defeat Death Oni in Tree of Life (Instance)
Yoshohito Temple, Mooshu

SNOWMEN

Melty Jack (No card)
- Defeat Pops O'Leary in Ironworks (Instance)
Digamore Station, Marlybone

Malign Frost (*Has card)
- Defeat Jacques the Scratcher in Knight's Court
Scotland Yard, Marlybone
* the card that comes with Malign Frost has a bug. It will show it has "0" cards, and does not add a card to your deck

Good Luck ! :D

Hope this might help

You can also buy a snowman from Felix Navidad in Wizard City Shopping District, only if Christmas is still around. I can't be bothered fighting bosses lots of times just to get a pet. I prefer buying them. That is what makes them special to me. If I get one from a boss, yay, lucky me. I'm not the type that looks for pets, more enjoying the game and the tasks. :-)

Sorry to break it to you Orca... I have 2 of my wizards with the Sprite. It's not really a secret where to get it. It is however one of the hardest ones to get dropped.

I got a dark fairy without card from Bastilla, the tower next to Wormguts tower in Firecat Alley on my life wizard. It was the first time when I was doing the quest. I only had to do it once.

I would just like to add that now the Bazaar is out you can be lucky and find pets there. I bought lots of pets at the bazaar. It also depends if you have enough gold. It is good also that you transfer pets from one character to another to match your school.

Regards,

Maryanne for this awesome update.

Nope, its not the hardest. I've gotten them from Alicane Swiftarrow in Firecat Alley

But the hardest pet in the WHOLE game to get is the Sheep, there are 5 around.
