I'm a little miffed. I know for a fact that I farmed the blossoms for the spirit of summer a couple of years ago. I was disappointed, at the time, to find it was a wisp and not a little scorchling. However, the pet grew on me and I would run around with it on my nelf hunter because it reminded me of the whisps we turn into when we die. I have done two faction changes on this hunter since then and now this pet doesn't exist in my list anymore.

Yeah, I also noticed this. The Captured flame is blue but the pet you get from it is green. I had this pet since before and also thought they changed it this year. Thanks to your comment I know they haven't. =)

"Captured Flame" is a Rare (Blue) item.  When learned, you get the battle pet, "Spirit of Summer" an Uncommon (Green) pet.  The pet can be upgraded to a Rare (Blue) battle pet via the stones.

 

I already had Spirit of Summer as an uncommon battle pet from years ago.  I saw that Captured Flame is now blue and assumed it meant that Spirit of Summer would be rare.  So I wasted 2 hours flying around getting blossoms to buy the Captured Flame for 350 blossoms.

@Glorpin, I use Spirit of Summer a lot, and regardless of how many times you inflict your opponent with Burning (from Flame Breath, Immolate or Scorched Earth), Conflagrate deals extra damage only once.

Question, if you use Flame Breath and Immolate so it's got two Burning dots, does Conflagrate do extra damage twice?  Would be OP!

After farming daily since the Midsummer Festival started and visiting a lot of Honor and Desecrate fires, I finally got the little guy (thing). Now I don't know what to spend the rest of my blossoms on.

When combined with the hallowed wand wisp transformation, its even better to have the pet leash to link you!

Using this pet while stealthed will not break the stealth spell.

Pet goes Great with Hallowed Wand - Wisp
(obtained via Hallow's End)

Also used to have only a red glow wherever you went, now, changes its tint, depending on location.

This little piece of summer smells of warm evenings and lightning storms. If you look closely, you might be able to make out a face.
