This is definitely a great alternative to the S/S Gilnean Raven. From my experience the Crow only comes up as a secondary pet. I've found that battling a level 6+ battle pet on Darkmoon Island yields a secondary pet in battle (sometimes a third pet as well), but anything with a lower level typically yields only itself in battle. You want to look for anything level 6+ to battle with, if you're looking for a Crow that is.
I got mine as second to the glowfly. They were in the spawn points on that map roughly.
My first was a lvl 7 green and second was a lvl 9 BLUE :D :D was crossing my fings at that point because I had scoured the most part of top forest and had just got to the tip/end with nothing but more grey one off glowflies (far right point was ma bluey).
I found two s/s crows (one green and one gray) from the same spawn point a few hours apart during the most recent faire (Feb. 2014). They were secondaries to a level 10 and level 8 respectively.
When you look at the location map, the spawn point was in the area behind the round whakagnome tent. I will try to get coords but if you've been farming them, I hope that's enough of a guide to the general area.
Despite some of the comments on here, these are not hard or impossible to get.They show up as secondaries to at least level 6+ - circle the Faire over and over again, clearing out glowflies. I got uncommons first - tamed two of those, left the third slot open for a rare if I found it - which I did after two days of farming. Dropped the second uncommon for another free slot, and I'll continue circling. Do this in off hours when there's not a ton of people doing the same thing.
I found a crow yesterday afternoon after about a hour of farming Glowflys. It was poor quality but I just used a stone to upgrade it.
I wanted to update this to add I've since found 2 more crows. It seems they ony drop from level 7+ glowflys, so if you're specifically looking for a crow I'd pass the low level ones.
I found mine today, as a second pet with a Glowfly.. so hunt the Glowfly's as well. Mine was flying at the east side of the fair. The level was higher (level 7), and, like I said, it has a second pet which was a Crow. So don't forget the Glowfly when you see one :)
Does anyone find that their crows are broken when in a pvp battle? I'm running a 3 s/s crow team. Even though I have Call Darkness up, they keep missing with Nocturnal Strike. This has been going on for about a week and it has rendered my team pretty much useless.
The combo, however, seems to work fine in pve battles.
I farmed half a dozen circular routes on this, early morning server time, having never seen a crow over a year's worth of DMF hunting. Last time running the ridge down the east side of the faire I came across four crows in a row, each time as second pet, one of each rarity, 3 were S/S, once was P/S.
if you're lucky enough to get a crow, do not spend months and months farming a rare like me as you will be very bitter and cranky (and i finally got one, at lvl 10!). capture any quality and use a battle stone to upgrade it to rare from one of the pandaran daily bags. seriously. save yourself the agony.
on the plus side, squak + Murder on an aquatic pet: Shore Crab (like on jaguero isle, leveling pets waiting for rain to nab a Baby Ape) is a devilish combo.
Collected three S/S (2 male/1 female), none rare and this was working at it on/off all week the last DMF. Stones one to Rare 25. I'll work on the others in the coming months. With the option to Breed them coming in Warlord of Draenor, just planning ahead to have a male/female for some pets.
This pet I use ALOT, hes my primary power leveler for the aquatics out in Shrine, be sure to get him in S/S breeds!
I think its best just to stone this to save yourself the time on finding a rare, you can easily get enough JP to buy a stone or do the dailies in Pandaria to get one. Especially on a high pop server i sometimes cant even find one fly yet alone find a rare crow.
I caught a rare Crow while looking for a glowfly! I didn't even know I needed one, but I instantly love this cute bird! It was from the fourth glowfly, on Shadowcouncil at 9:36a at (71,78).
Catching a rare Crow will be very pain. prepare a few hour for keep battle the Glowfiles.
for Breed . Crow have 4 breed . SS. PS . PB . BB
some say SS is the best for PVP . but i still newbie in pets battle . SO far i manage get rare PB. and and rare SS , a rare BB. after spend more than24 hour . worth the efford ? i will say get a poor quality crow with the Breed you want and stone it . This is more efficient.
so good luck guy .
I just got mine. Went through about 4 pet battles against glowflies and the crow was the 2nd one in battle. It's common but I don't mind. :) Happy farming, guys! Don't give it <3
I was after a S/S Breed for PvP and it took me almost to hours to find one. It was of poor quality, but since I do not have the nerve to spend countless hours farming for a rare one in the special breed I'm after, I stoned it and got the hell off that creepy island. :)
Im so happy. I got a poor one but after a daily pet fable quest i got a rare flying stone so I turned my Crow to rare quality! =)
Apparently, as of hotfix on Dec 5th, Crows still only appear as adds to Glowflies, but are at least capturable (but not cagable for trade). Glowflies have other possible adds too (sea gull, roach, adder...), so just keep at those level 5+ Glowflies until you find the Crow you want. And good luck!
Had one show up as a second to a glowfly on the first battle...but it was poor and I didn't know how rarely they spawned so I killed it. Two days later I finally found another behind the Darkmoon port, poor quality but breed 5. Worth the upgrade.
Finally got my rare today after a 7 and a half hour non stop camp, must have killed off 20 plus rare flies by the time it was all said and done. Good luck all on this one.
