How to track: Like the other trackable hunter pets, you will not be able to see him when he's up. He is completely stealthed. In order to locate him, you will need to find and follow his tracks - tracks that thankfully only hunters can see. Once you've found his tracks you'll need to follow them until you don't see any more. This is where I like to wait and watch where I think that he'll be walking next. Often times you'll see a new track appear right in front of you - this means you've found him!
Once you find him, the only way to see where he is, will be for him to walk through a flare. Don't throw your flare down on top of the track he just left, throw it a little further out in front of where you think he is. When he walks through your flare he will become visible. You can take this opportunity to tame, or you can throw a Hunter's Mark on him - which will keep him visible to you when he goes back into stealth. Hunter's Mark will make him visible to you, but only you when he's in stealth.
(Tracks are now facing the correct direction as of patch 5.1. You no longer need to follow them backwards.)
Stompy's Path starts in the mountains northwest of One Keg, and from there he heads northwest up Mount Neverest. When he gets close to the mountain top, he turns around and heads back down the mountain. He then continues northwest until he nears the Shado-Pan Monastery where he starts heading generally southwest. His path ends just north of the Winter's Blossom base camp and quest hub. It takes him about 39 minutes to move from one end of the path to the other. When he reaches the end of his path, he simply turns around 180 degrees and heads back in the direction he came from.

|In the above screenshots Stompy is heading toward the eastern end of his path, where he then turns around 180 degrees and starts heading west|
|Above, from left to right: Stompy is heading northwest past the Neverest Basecamp, after he passes the Basecamp he turns southwest heading up Mount Neverest. In the right screenshot you can see that nothing is too vertical for Stompy.|
|Above from left to right: Stompy is heading west toward the Shado-Pan Monastery, then walking a loop past Zhing and his herd of Wild Mountain Goats (Zhing is an elite that drops an interesting item called Bag of Kafa Beans). In the right screenshot he is turning around right in front of the Shado-Pan Monastery.|
