The Tauntaun can already be obtained in-game (and could be obtained on PTS for the last 4 weeks before that), although nobody managed to find it.

Some of you actually had ideas that are pretty close to the truth and I've seen at least one comment out there on the internet that indicates the tauntaun was found, but not captured.

I picked up the liver off a mob in the daily heroic 2+ on Ilum. Now to beat Snowblind...

tat is full of sand dunes, so its not really precise. however most events or shared items are in a shared space

magenta crystal (world boss for schematic, waters which could be obtained through out the zone, freezing water which would be a shared space on hoth, ghost which would be a shared quest hub)

Orobird pet (eggs gathered from shared areas, hatched in shared quest hub)

which means it is probably in the dune sea.

People were talking about an enduring tauntaun on ilum. Also about a tiny one.

I went there to check it out. The enduring one doesn't seem like anything, but the tiny one could be something.

Ilum @ 1017, 902

This tauntaun is TINY, like a pebble tiny. Also, not clickable. Still, it's a lead.

In the same forum thread someone made a map out of the tiny one. I went to the spot, but I didn't find anything there either. Maybe it was the wrong spot, or because I don't have the jerky...dunno. Either way, here's the map they drew:

I hope this helps, I'll try at it.

Some of this will be repeat information but I've spent the day going after these things in between PvP and this is what I've gotten:

Alderan Orokeet from under the broken bridges. Spawns every 4 hours on the dot. Once you grab the egg you take it to Tattooine and get the moisture parts, then go to the czerka shack, stand between the solar panels, and click on the egg in your inventory.

1 of the Tauntauns (the Taunling) can get dropped by Gargath. I got it on our first try. We beat him with 8, 2 heals, 2 tanks, the rest DPS. Tried it later, a second time (4-5 hour boss respawn, I think) and did it with 2 heals, 1 tank, 3 DPS. All 50's with 125+ gear. That time he dropped the schematic for the Ice Scrabbler Jerky, but no pet. So now I'm sending the schem off to a a friend with biochem and searching Hoth for where to take the jerky once I've got it made.

Going to check Ilum to see if I can find where the Ice Scrabbler Liver drops - will post again when I find either of those two things. If you know where either of those are, please post.

Found this on Torhead:

Maybe this is what we're trying to spawn via the jerky?
