I was collecting the "unique to area" pets and annoyed at myself that I didn't pick up one of these the night before.  Was by Raven Hill/Twilight Grove border checking out the Dusk hatchlings and there was a lone widow spiderling, sort of stuck in a tree!  It was 10:30 am so it is possible to find one during the day.  I grabbed it for ach, only a common but at least it saves me a trip back here.  Duskwood gives me the heebie geebies!

Has anyone ever seen a main spawn? I am running around for a half hour, and still nothing. 830-9 server.

as previously mentioned, this spider only comes out at night. i saw they started popping up at 8:30pm server time, on rexxar. there were lots out camping for these buggers, so perhaps i didn't see them before hand. they can also double up as a second pet with all the others in the zone, saw mainly with skunks, dusk spiderlings, rats, and mice. good luck to those getting it, my rare was off the main road. also, i saw one in a tree that was untargetable, at (35.01, 53.06), on the raven hill side.

Remember to set your team up appropriately BEFORE you start hunting. This morning at about 0528 hrs I spotted a Widow Spiderling. I realized that I still had my big pets slotted and risked killing it rather than capturing it, as I paused to rotate to smaller pets *BOOM* the two on my screen blinked out at 0529 hrs. :-(

Oh well, there's always tomorrow morning as I need to start prepping for work! :-)

I have seen these as primary spawns as late as 8:00 am CST, but they DO come as secondaries other times of the day.

After thinking I was done for, witht hem being a 'night pet', reading that you can capture them as secondaries, gave me hope, my first day trying for one, opened a battle with 4 dusk spiderlings, hoping for this pet, no luck, so i flew over to the western side of duskwood, saw a black rat, decided to give it a shot, to my amazement, a rare widow spiderling as a secondary, during the day. Thanks to all the comments here, other wise i would have given up.

battled for like and hour and a half in total (over 2 days) got a poor quality as a 2nd to a skunk, then today got an uncommon 2nd to a dusky spiderling. Also confirming that you can catch these in the daylight hours. caught both the poor and the uncommon in amongst the black widow mobs, on the west side of Twilight Grove

I just battled and caught a green Widow Spiderling at 1:54pm local and server time in Duskwood.  I'm on Ysera.  I just wanted to report that since the description says that this is an evening only pet.  I had previously caught and/or battled gray ones but those happened between 8pm and 10pm local and server time.


edit: It was the second behind a Dusk Spiderling.  The gray ones were behind Dusks as well.

The Widow Spiderling is an incredibly powerful and IMO underrated battle pet. At 25 I can easily solo the random Pandaria trio teams. Brittle WebbingPoison Spit, and Leech Life (double heal with Brittle Webbing) make this spider very self-sustaining, with impressive damage going out each round.

Edit: And right after that another, but Common, as a 2nd to another Dusk Spiderling.

Found my rare tonight around 11:15pm server time, after around 20 minutes or so of battling. Took a while of me flying around it's marker on my minimap before I figured out that it was spawned inside a tree lol :) Had to /target it. Didn't see any as secondaries, but I think I've seen them as secondaries before.

I spent days trying to upgrade to a rare version of this guy by farming the secondary spawn versions during the day. Came at "night" (11pm server for me) and Brightwood Grove have over 15 primary spawns with the secondary being a Widow Spiderling as well.

After searching a few hours last night and not finding a single one I decided to follow the comments today and look during the day instead. 10:23am (PST, 1:23pm Server Time) 3rd pet I battled. Secondary to the Dusk spiderling.

It appears these can spawn as an add with anything (or just about anything) in the zone at any time of day.  I saw lots of them as adds to Small Frogs, Skunks, Dusk Spiderlings, Rabbits, etc, between the in-game hours of 11am-6pm.  That is how I got my two rares.


I never saw them spawn on their own, but perhaps THAT is what requires nightfall.

I also found this as a second (to a Dusk Spiderling) east of Raven Hill, after about 20 pet battles, at about 6:30pm server on Rexxar. I had done rounds over the area north of the road for several days and never saw this one pop up.

Found mine at 0900 server time, so I'm not so sure about that "Night time" designation.  It was teamed up behind a Black Rat at 78, 33.

Widow spiders are very beautiful creatures in "real life" and the Warcraft version is no exception. If you are a spider lover, make your way over to Duskwood and grab yourself one of these deadly ladies. You won't be disappointed! Happy hunting.

Widow spiderlings have plenty of time to explore Duskwood once they take care of their pesky family commitments.
