Golden Goose does NOT exist!

This is crazy! I have spent nearly 40 thousand crowns on the Winterland packs trying to get the Golden goose pet, and haven't gotten it yet.....has anyone received the golden goose pet from a pack or am I just chasing something that does not exist? You would think with only 4 pets that drop from the pack that I would have seen it from 40k crowns! /rant off.

You could try farming Krokopatra or using her chest to try to get the pet. Elephant Spectral Guardian in mirror lake also drops it, as well as the jade oni, lord nightshade, and tse-tse snaketail.

I got it from the pack when it first came out actually, unless you are stuck wanting a first generation perhaps try hatching with someone who has it

I've been farming Lord nightshade (that's his name...right?) All day and i got one! I'm willing to hatch with you once it's an adult, which may take 1-7 days. If that's alright with you, just post a reply. (I don't expect anything in return, unless you have the snowhoppers pet, it would be nice to hatch one!) I have all the pets he drops so far except for the maple moose, which i am working on. I've battled him around 65-75 times in order to get the pet, but it's 100% possible to get one for free! I also don't like the way packs use up most of your crowns.

It has a very low drop rate.

Doing the math, you already bought over 100 packs and still didn't get the pet. The problem is, every new pack you buy is the same very low chance of getting the Golden Goose - probably around 1%. You could easily spend $400 more and still not get what you want, because every single purchase is a new, unique event with a very low probability of dropping a goose. Just think of Crowns packs as slot machines and you'll understand why you're not "winning."

Therefore, I would advise you to stop gambling your Crowns, because you basically just spend $40 of real money in Wizard101's version of a casino.

But there is a better way!

Go to the boards, either here or at Central, and ask around if there's anyone who already has the Golden Goose and is willing to hatch with you. Heck, you could even offer to gift them a pack or two! Two or three hatches should get you the pet, and even if you're gifting them two packs (800 Crowns), that's still a much cheaper route than blowing 40,000 trying to win an ultra-rare drop from Crowns packs.

I was easily able to get a golden goose by farming the jade oni. While I was mostly looking for keys, you have a good chance to get some of the winter wonderland pack items, plus a few other goodies.

I got one from the pack, its not ready for hatching though. You're best bet is to find someone willing to hatch with you ( maybe you have a good pet they would like, too. )
