This battle pet is a beast! Unlike it's sprite darter hatchling brother it is a flying type. With that comes the 50% speed bonus! This speed boost pretty much ensures that you will go first and with evanescence it makes it last two rounds (initial cast and next round). Couple that with Moonfire that boosts Arcane Blast and you have a pet that can take down other pets to 25% health before you even get hit! Also with a breed type 4 and rare quality this pet has 341 attack at 25!
I find it really weird that the flavour text for this guy says it has a 'natural defense against magic', yet they gave it the flying type which takes 50% extra magic damage. Perhaps it was supposed to be a dragon type.
I don't know why I waited so long to lvl this thing, it's one of the most useful battle pets around. Life Exchange is the greatest move ever when you're battling BoF. Plus it's magic! Flyers don't have a chance. It did take a while to catch a rare, but they are plentiful around Dire Maul.
I have to say, this guy is a staple of my 'Beasts of Fable' team. Life Exchange is devastating against the 4k+ hp pets, even if you use it at full health it will take 1.3-1.5k off of the enemy. Add in that it can be used while they are using Liftoff/Dive/Burrow and it really makes battling them a breeze.
I do wish he was still flying though, I caught an attack breed and having 340 atk/390 spd above 50% hp was the best!
They are located around the old non-instance Dire Maul!
Easily my most versatile PvE pet in the P/P build. Very useful for power levelling off the moths in timeless isle, start with arcane blast to get them to ~55%, then Moonfire to finish them off and you start the next pet with the dragon buff. Life exchange when the third pet comes out.
I've experimented with S/S in PvP with moderate success using evanescense to dodge 2 attacks when possible. I actually one-manned some poor guy several times in one night with this build.
I haven't used this pet for PvP yet, but it by far my favorite for the pandarian pet dailies. I she can solo the whispering spirit, I also use her for for my team for the fire and water spirit. She's part of my build for probably half of the pandarian tamers, and is great for power leveling low level pets.
These are plentiful right around Dire Maul, in the same areas the Gordok Ogres occupy. If you're Horde, the quickest way to get there is to fly to Stonemaul and then just step out through the back opening in the fence -- there will likely be one fluttering around not twenty feet in front of you! They seem to respawn quite fast, and this area is often completely deserted, so most of the time you won't have a lot of competition.
I had always wanted one of these as a hunter pet... so I went over there to get one as a companion. Got a rare on my third one and named her Glimmer... until I found the battle master there.. and her's was named Glimmer o.O
Yes, as Koneko mentions. This used to be a Flying pet, now (as per 5.1) a Dragonkin. Which makes it exactly like my Sprite Darter Hatchling. Same abilities. How lame. I liked how it looked like a Dragonkin and had abilities like one but was a Flying. Maybe to trick someone in a battle. But that time is over. /sadface
I haven't tested it in PvP, but Evanescence will block two attacks if it goes first. It probably will with the speed boost. Vs. other flying things, it gets a +50% boost on already massive damage abilities. You see quite a bit of them, so even without healing, this thing is still a powerhouse to use while collecting pets.
There are a ton of these guys around the area, so its great for levelling your pets XP as well. Not to mention they're completely beautiful! Shiny Cap'n!
Picked up both P/P and S/S versions(341 power or 325 speed respectively). I'm finding the speedy version alot more useful in PvP in general. Evanescence is more useful and you can punish birds earlier.
Works well in a clonedancer team. Sometimes it does feel like the speedy version is a bit weak though when trying to go toe to to with some other pet.
If you go with P/P I think Life-Exchange is more benefitial than Evanescence.
Double counter against fliers, being dragonkin with magic attacks.
Tons of these all over dire maul, Found a rare one pretty quickly
After days of trying for a rare, I finally got one. I'm sure I was well over 100 battles. The only nice thing about this much effort is how much it helped me level. These things respawn so far, I just kept rotating level 9 pets in. Leveled 12 pets to lvl 10 from farming this rare, lol
a lovely pet, located around and on top of the unistanced dire maul in feralas (kalimdor) i got there by getting a boat from booty bay and flew the rest of the way on my flying mount, way easier than the other faerie dragon i suspect (=-P.
When I fought the trainer by Dire Maul. His Nether Faerie Dragon was Dragonkin and not Flying. Did anyone else notice this?
Battled 5 poor, collected 2 uncommons, battled 6 total, got my Blue within 20 minutes, up the stairs and to the right 1/2 way down the path.
Love this little guy, very cute, but most of all very handy! Got an uncommon first hand, currently looking for a rare! Well worth it!
Plenty of them around Dire Maul, managed to find a rare one. It's also a nice alternative to the Sprite Darter Hatchling if you can't be bothered to farm it. Quite a strong battle pet too, I was plesantly surprised. :)
