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.
This morning (2016-08-21) I was able to find a ton of these around Kharazan. It was around 7AN EST. There were also several restless shadelings under ground. I was on my level 87 mage. I hope this helps others.
I go there daily for the pet battle and tonight not one single arcane eye anywhere. Usually quite a few around, I use to get some quick xp on little guys. Glad I got one when I did I guess. Odd they'd remove them all. Wonder if the other pet that supposedly spawns early morning or late night is still going to be there? Never have seen that one yet, bad timing. Probabaly gone also :(
Looks like these pets will be much harder to find, since the patch on 8/19/2016. Several reports of people spending hours there and not seeing one show up. I haven't seen any and I keep a character there and check every few hours. They have added some 100 level npc's there, so I wonder if they have plans for something diifferent there when the new release comes out.
This pet is a great addition to a Nexus Whelpling Mana Surge team. His magic status allows you to absorb dragon based damage and either slow the enemy pet down with Eyeblast or to rip them apart by lowering their damage and increasing yours 25%. In addition you have Psychic Blast to finish things off. Usually I name this pet "Is" because Resistance Is Futile is my team.
Just over two hundred fights and still no rare :(
And the curse of little XP negates the ability to level other pets in the area, so its a definite irksome grind. That and the annoying trial of trying to figure out when the other pet in the area is going to spawn (I'm on Thrall and have camped from midnight to almost 3AM and still no Restless Shade) means that this area is my Achilles Heel. Thank god I have pretty ankles or this would be frustrating.
For some reason I love this pet, although I always feel like he is watching me. I am not paranoid. My psychiatrist says that he is not watching me, so I am sure he is not watching me. I mean how could he watch me, he's not real. Is he? But anyways, the best pet against flyers is the Nexus Whelpling in my opinion. But the next best pet against flyers is the Arcane Eye. His Drain Power ability is awesome if you combine that with Arcane Storm. Look out.
I don't know what's going on with leveling here. But I tried my Pandereren water spirit lvl 13 for about 5 fights without one level. And I did a lvl 10 dark whelpling close to leveling up and all it did was barely go to 11.
This is a decent pet vs flyers. Weak defense but can burn down alot of pets before you have to swap it. A staple of my "B" team.
Just managed to catch my first one - a rare nonetheless! - using 3 x Fluxfire Feline [uncommon, 2 x lvl 6 and a lvl 7]. Took me a couple of tries, but in the end managed to catch it by a hair (or, more precisely on the very last round before my third kitty perished). So happy!
Getting the other two eyes after this was a piece of cake (first two kittys were enough to catch both a poor and a common eye).
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!
