I have this and my Celestial Dragon together while leveling up other pets and they make a great tag team especially on those tough wilds that just "get your goat" so to speak. If you do this combo, have your dragon with arcane winds then switch to your eye, open with drain power, then use mana surge (does have a chance to miss) then follow with psychic blast. hopefully by the time this is over you should either need to switch back to the dragon or the battle is finished. GL! :)
I named mine Eyesis ;)
Slychd - It could simply be bad timing. This battle pet and the Restless Shadeling are on daily and/or timed spawns from what I can tell. I killed all the Arcane Eyes in Deadwind Pass roughly 30 minutes ago and none of them have respawned. I've also read that the Shadelings only come out somewhere between midnight and 9am EST, then despawn late morning.
EDIT: After posting this comment the Eyes started respawning again. So figure a 30-40 minute timer on respawns.
This pet seems to be currently glitched, as the "iris" seems to not have the proper graphic
Their location is your one stop shopping place for pet leveling. After doing the trainer whom it is a gift to fast level a lvl one pet to 6 with Jack's first move, you can then go on to eyes. As said they single spawn so perfect for a lowbie to take a shot then switch. They always seem to be plentiful. I've found 2 rares, only come in one build. Bit mean ganging up three against one tho. :)
About 5am Zangarmarsh time or 7pm EDT I snagged a rare Arcane Eye first battle to replace the green from a previous trip. They are on the grounds and sometimes on the balconies of the towers. At this time there were many of them all around the place. There is also the Master Pet Trainer with the daily quest if you have unlocked them :)
Flew into Deadwind Pass at 3:30 AM CST on a Sunday, they were all over the place. They respawned until about 3:37.
It's a flying eye. A blueish, glowing, flying eye.
I went over to pick one of these guys up. There were 3 spawned when I got there, all poor quality. I got an uncommon on the 5th try. Took me another 12 fights over the next few hours before I found my first rare. I shall name him Agamotto...
As others have posted, when a pet is as hard to locate as this, if you are not capturing due to quality please log out in battle, rather than kill needlessly. That way you leave the non-rare for the rest of us, and can log back in and battle a new one.
Very easy to find in Deadwind Pass near the entrance to the Kharazan instance. Spawn in front, back, top and sides of the building, as well as in the adjacent water channel. Easy to find via flight form or flying mount. They spawn 24 hours a day, but you may wish to hunt for them before and after hunting for Restless Shadelings in the Master's Cellar. If you don't find rares, check again later, and you may double or triple your luck! If these were tradeable, I'd make a killing!
Only found one in all the Deadwind area and it was an uncommon.
The one I tamed was a rare, but I find it difficult to level, as it loses health very quickly, even against flying oponents. I give it high rates for the looks however.
i love this pet ... I use with my Azure Whelping and the damage bonus he gets
from the arcane winds is freakin awesome . can one hit lvl 25 comon pets with ease and uncommon most the time to
Shadelings and eyes are single mobs. I have yet to see a rare shadeling, used a stone on mine. I got a rare eye but it took a lot and I was always the only one there.
These are useful for lvling pets if you're like me and enjoy the slow way. If you're just starting out, this is a good one to grab since they are lvl 16-18, easily gunned down by strong lower lvl pets, and fly solo so no pesky second or third to beat down. Eyeblast and Interrupting Gaze are a dead useful combo too. Also, my first Flawless unmarked battlestone dropped after fighting one, but that was two droprate modifications ago.
Easy to spot them near kara
It's not normal for almost all other pets but the Arcane Eyes and I think also the Restless Shadling both only come with 1 of their type rather than 2 other random pet types from the zone.
Started pet battling today and all of the Eyes I found were single mob fights...is that normal?
I am having the worst luck with this guy. I happened to fly down there just to battle the tainer and the Shadelings were up so I got a rare one of those and thought "Hey I never came here and caught an Arcane Eye, I'll nab one while I'm here"
