They definitely appear as secondary battlers to the glowflies.  Just did a few circles and on my second appearance I got a rare :)

I have seen at least two comments that they show up as level 6+ secondary battlers.  I have just gotten one as a secondary battle pet, both level 5.  



Furthermore, I have picked up 3 total crows now, at various points around the island.  Just battle all the pets, even the low level ones to get respawns.  



Also got the sea pony at the underwater cave (below the sunken ship, off the middle of the east coast at the edge of the fatigue zone) in about 20 casts.

There seems to be a LOT of confusion with Call of Darkness and Nocturnal Strike, so I thought I would help clear it up. 


The Nocturnal Strike tool tip states "Base hit chance increased to 100% if the target is Blinded".


Weather effects ALL front pets in battle. The tool tip (at top of screen once cast) for Weather Darkness states "Accuracy reduced by 10%"


So Nocturnal Strike starts at 100% accuracy since blinded, but then the weather itself reduces it to 90% accuracy

This pet's Call of Darkness and Nocturnal Strike combination sounds deadly; however, like many others on here have said, it is broken. One person said it worked pve but not pvp for him or her.  For me, it was broken in pve also.   It seemed to switch the probabilities on me.  I NEVER hit with Nocturnal Strike so far, and to make it worse, the enemies have yet to miss.  I thought the Call of Darkness was suppose to work the other way, Blizz. WTH?


Still glad I finally got my rare.  Just wish that power combo worked the way it says it will.

I tried serveral times over the past 3 days to get a rare one and my efforts were rewarded this morning with a rare S/S breed.   I suggest trying characters from different servers to farm this little guy.  Good luck & have fun!

Is it just me or does "Nocturnal Strike" seem to have a very high miss rate after "Call of Darkness", when its supposed to be 100%.

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 :)



And like others said... don't drive yourself mad with finding a rare one... use a battle stone. Even the poor Crow's are hard to find.

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.

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.

While smaller than the infamous ravens of Gilneas, crows are no less clever or cunning.
