These beautiful drakes can be found across the shores of Northrend.
Capture the EPW in a small clearing in Sholazar Basin. There are usually only a few, so it may take some waiting, or more than one visit. While all breeds are useful, you probably want a P/P for the extra power in the shield and heals.

The EPW is a tanky pet, that will shield and heal itself, and survive a long time with little need for healing between battles.

Keep your Emerald Presence shield up as much as possible. Cast the 3-round Emerald Dream heal when at about half-health, and use either of its basic attacks otherwise.

Discussion: The EPW and the Anubisath Idol were the two great tanky pets of the original Mists pet battling launch.

As a Dragonkin with optional Magic damage, it is a special bane to flyers. With its shield and heal, it can go forever without needing an external heal with taming pets or in other wild battles.

Choose either Breath or Emerald Bite depending on the type of pet you expect to encounter.

While the usual rotation is the shield and heal, there are a few places where Ancient Blessing and Proto-Strike may apply. Ancient Blessing may be used to recover from an expected big hit, and Proto-Strike might be used as a dodge to avoid one. However, the straight shield and 3-round heal is more generally useful.

The Dream Whelpling found after completing the Emerald Nightmare raid is very similar.

I was using the Emerald Proto-Whelp in so many teams I went a little overboard with scripting for him (or her?). I wanted to share this with you, maybe you like it to...

use(Emerald Bite:525) [enemy.hp<=303]
use(Emerald Bite:525) [enemy.hp<=454 & self.aura(Dragonkin:245).exists]
use(Emerald Bite:525) [self.ability(Emerald Bite:525).strong & enemy.hp<=454]
use(Emerald Bite:525) [self.ability(Emerald Bite:525).strong & enemy.hp<=681 & self.aura(Dragonkin:245).exists]
use(Emerald Presence:597) [self.aura(Emerald Presence:823).duration<=1]
use(Emerald Presence:597) [self.speed.fast & enemy.aura(Silk Cocoon:505).exists]
use(Emerald Presence:597) [self.speed.fast & enemy.aura(Underground:340).exists]
use(Emerald Presence:597) [self.speed.fast & enemy.aura(Flying:341).exists]
use(Emerald Presence:597) [enemy.aura(Dodge:311).exists]
use(Emerald Dream:598) [self.hp<700]
use(Emerald Bite:525)

When used for the backline pets you could summon him to the front with a statement like:
change(Emerald Proto-Whelp:1167) [self(Emerald Proto-Whelp:1167).ability(Emerald Bite:525).strong]

If you have any remarks or improvements, let me know :)
