The [Captured Firefly] item originally included the flavor text, "Still flying…", providing a clever reference to the Joss Whedon television series of the same name.

This is the first pet I ever farmed because I loved the show Firefly. I wish the show was "Still flying..." Ah well, at least my pet didn't get cancelled.

A good farming route for this pet is to move along the upper rim of Serpent Lake going east, starting just east of the Ogre settlements, ending at the Naga settlements, and then cycling back to the beginning. The respawn rate is decently high as well; if you take your time, you can literally constantly kill them.

It took nearly two years on and off (just my horrid luck), but I think this little peach is worth it. :3

Well, dont know if I have to consider myself really unlucky, or if it is just normal to kill 1004 mobs, and farm for almost 7 hours without getting any =(

I have also waited and hoped in finding some kind of luck in the server's reset, but I was wrong...

Well, I hope ill be more lucky tomorrow.
Firefly you will be mine >:( ............ hopefully..;_;

After 2nd day of farming, still no firefly...1911 kills and im still here -.-

This pet used to have the flavor text "Still flying..." when the pets were used as items, a quote which ironically comes from Firefly.

Sadly, now that pets are used a spells, the awesome quote is now gone.

Words I never thought I'd hear from my husband at 5 in the morning. "Do you still need a caged firefly, because I just mailed one to you."

I'd pretty much given up farming for this one since cross realm zones were introduced as every time I'd been by lately the Needlers were camped.

I had been farming this guy for a few days now.  I went to empty my bags and there it was! I didnt even know I had picked it up.  Caution! It shows up in your bag as a white level item!!!

Don't despair! I farmed this little guy for -weeks- and according to Rarity was at 1614 (and had just whined to a friend via skype that I didn't think it would ever drop) when BLAMMO! There it was. :) I'm a geek, I named it Serenity.  

 

So hang in there.

 

As a note, I found the most efficient way to farm was to run (no mount) from the first spawn (near Zabra'jin) all around the upper curve of the lake, then ride my water strider around the bottom end. Gave them time to respawn.

Getting a little frustrated with this one. Been working on it some each day for over a week now. Sure would be nice if they were closer together and spawned like whelps in wetlands but at least I don't have to "deal with" having to skin these. :/

So yeah, about 20+ total mobs and oddly they don't seem to respawn at a regular rate. So if you rerun the path too quickly you will miss some.

Ok here goes with the luck theory of posting....
At over 3000 kills and bored of the rainy weather here, hoping that mentioning will bring luck :-)
Edit: 3700 and counting
Edit2: Sanity now dwindling at 4500+ kills - debating what offering to give RNG overseers?
Edit3: 5527 kills for it to drop...painful!

400 kills and he dropped. Very fast one only had to grind him for 70-80 minutes! =) BTW, if anyone is gonna go looking for pets off of drops its a good idea to go with a druid. Instant flight makes it very fast!

Key 1 : Flight Form
Key 2 : A Macro with /target pet
Key 3 : Instant spell

You'll be filling your bags in no time!

I recently decided to begin farming this pet, because I love fireflies so much. My significant other warned me that he spent nearly a week farming it.

Thirty minutes later? He was mine! I don't think he spoke to me for a week.

My route? left of the lake heading north, round the top and back again. That was it.

Well, I'm up to 1810 kills and nothing. I've been farming non-stop for 9 hours. I've logged up 16 hours in the last 2 days. I've seen a couple of people jump in front of me, kill a few and fly off...did they get my Firefly?

So much for the 1500 drop rate! Grrrr.....

 

Well its now 2713 and 17 hrs and still no fly.

 

3270 and 22 hrs (3 days) and you guessed it still no pet!

Am I the most unlucky player for this drop I wonder?

 

3671 and 4 days - I give up!

Just got mine on my lvl 90 lock. I tried before tea for about 20 mins and no luck, logged on after dinner to try my luck and it was raining and it dropped on my first loop.

I had been farming this guy for 3 days straight, over 21 hours and 2375 kills with my level 71 warlock. I was really starting to think that I would have to come back to this one later, but then I switched to my level 90 mage and 7 kills later it DROPPED! 

 

Is there something in the algorithim that takes into account level? Well, I will leave that for the scholars to discuss, while I enjoy my firefly.

Commonly used by sporelings as a light source as they navigate the waterways of Zangarmarsh, this luminescent insect helps them avoid the dangerous bogflare needlers.
