When farming for a rare Gilded Moth (which come in sets of 3 that are always the same quality, with the same friends/quality combo), you can mark one with a raid symbol. Then pet battle the other two. This ensures that the respawns will be battle pets and not just critters. They will be new quality, with new friends. So you can battle the two unmarked ones again, leaving the raid marked one up. Then repeat until you get your rare. Also note, when you get your rare the remaining unmarked one will also be rare, so you have one to offer a friend This also works with others that come in sets of three like the Horned Lizards in Uldum.
The only ones I have found have been bugged underneath the floor or in the walls in the Shrine of Two Moons and un-targetable with the mouse. However, if you can get close enough you can "/target Gilded Moth" to target them and then use the "Interact with Target" keybind to engage it in combat.
They were also level 1 so don't forget to bring a low level pet along or you will just one shot them!
I am unable to find any of these.................................................
EDIT: I see the 2 you spoke of in the mountain bugged out and I could not even click on them (they were knifes not the paw print so I would have killed them if I click on them,) how did you manage? I have my terriable turnip in my main party at level 25 so I never kill pets anymore.
Edit2: OK I finally got one, stand at 55.33 on top of the cliff and you can reach the few that fly there. Finally got it!
on magtheridon horde this one is bugged which it is seen flying into the building but if you wait for it, it flys out of the wall and can be tamed easy.
Found an uncommon tonight in the Vale, almost didnt check it because one of the three it was with was poor.
Indeed I have seen, at least twice now, a trio of level 1 fluttering about between the pet master and the flower seller on the landing of the Shrine of Seven Stars. Sadly, they have all been poor quality, even when I was using level 1 pets to fight them. Never got any adds, either, just 1 on 1 level 1 vs level 1.
They are randomly flying in the shrine of the sevens stars right now.
Three at TuShen Burial Ground in the vale. (44.6, 71.8) Two poor and a common. I marked one and let the others respawn. Finally, an uncommon showed up.
Happened to notice a group of 3 of them outside the ally shrine just now.
1st 1 I clicked was a lvl 1 rare... yoink lol
I just came across a group of three in Vale around the Mogu'Shan palace. So they are not just secondaries.
Just got rare one @ 55, 43 in Vale of Eternal Blossoms.
Should update the location map for this pet as it is not found only as an added pet in Vale of Eternal Blossoms. It is in fact found in groups of 3 around both Shrines, around the Golden Pagoda, and a little further north up on a ledge next to a goat.
Found 3 level 1s(yes, level one) today just flying around the allaince shrine.
Like previous comment, I found 3 NW of Mogu'shan Palace. All 3 of those were rares! One level 24 and 2 level 25 rares (all breed 8, 18). Previously, I had seen a group of 3 more west of Mogu'shan Palace. But those 3 were all poors. Can't wait to level up at least 1, if not 2 of them. I use my fast moths on Thundering Spirit all the time (was using a rare Fungal Moth until these catches)! Also got a Flawless Flying Stone after 3rd battle!
♦♦♦♦Can anyone confirm that these are always primary and never secondary battle pets?♦♦♦♦
I just found 3 level 1 Gilded Moths in Front of Shrine of 7 Stars. I should have cought one instead of just a screen shot. And yes, you read that right, LEVEL 1! So odd.
UPDATE: I caught myself a level 1 gilded moth.
I found about six groups of two by following the roads from the pagoda to the temple to the graveyard and so forth. Time was between 2:30am and 3:00am Aman'Thul server time
Unfortunately, every single one was either poor or normal quality, which I already have. Didn't see an uncommon or a rare.
Found 3 fluttering just south of the Golden Pagoda :)
Spent about 2 months trying to find any of these that were not flying through the mountains and uncapturable. Logged in today where I had left my toon sitting and there were 3 flying around me I startd battling and didnt realize until after I killed it, I needed that MOTH!!!! Ahhhhh! lucky there was 2 more. I found a group of 3 right next to the pet battle daily in vale of eternal blossoms Good luck finding yours.
I spent an hour or so killing the non-battle spawns near the Grand Master and at the pavilion on Whitepetal Lake to no avail. I repeated this seemingly fruitless action for 4 days straight and was finally rewarded with a group of three near the Grand Master, just below Shrine of Two Moons. They were uncommon and had two grey Civet Kittens attached so easy fight. I helped someone else get one as well through General Chat since grouped pets are nearly always duplicates.
In the 'battle two" method for the moth, the two new moths will spawn within 7 minutes. Got my rare on the fourth rotation. :)
