These appear to be more abundant at night. I started my hunt for one yesterday during the afternoon and found none even though no one else seemed to be camping the area for pets. I tried killing critters, clearing other pet battles - nothing. I left after an hour. I returned at roughly midnight server time and there were wisps EVERYWHERE. There must have been more than 15 spawned at a time and I easily encountered several rares (same char both tmes).
I can't confirm this as a guarantee, but I farmed on 3 characters for this guy in one evening. On 2 of the characters, the zone was phased and I didn't see any wisps. On the third, he had not completed any quests in the zone and they were abundant.
If you're having trouble, try using an unphased character.
Above link walks you through all those abbreviations (s/s, p/p, etc)
I'm still learning what it all means, too :)
I guess I'm retarded but what is s/s or s/b or h/s?
about 2am on Garona ,8 to 10 of the little ones dancing around pond, first one in battle was a rare. good luck to all
Just picked up a rare S/S on Eonar at 5:45pm EST. There's quite a few wisps about if anyone's looking. Took me about 4 tries to find a rare. Can't wait to take this little guy out for a spin.
abandon all hope ye who wants a rare..
you're done faster farming stones and catch a grey in the right family
Just like Faelastar suggested, I started killing critters around the pond near the portals and I had a wisp come up for me after two or three loops around with no wisps to be found. Recommend this method.
i think S/S would be the best for this guy because of his blind
Generally speaking, you get more total points if you choose the breed where all the points are in one place. There is an article about that on this site.
i'm a new pet battler. i'd like to have this pet in my fighting team. i'm going to mainly use light and flash. can u suggest what breed would be the best?
I've been hunting this pet for 3 weeks with not 1 spawn ever! -Rexxa server-
Killed everything around the pond/lake. Battled tons of pets and never even seen it. :P sooooo frustrating!!
So.... Down to basics.... This is what an undead nightelf would look like hehe ;) ...
I loved this pet, it was my go-to when I was fighting the pandaria tamers. Since 5.2 however, it doesn't seem to be doing as well. (Did they change Light ability?)
They were a little thin on the ground in the early days, but now there are lots around the inn. I upgraded my uncommon to rare without running out of them, and more recently took a party of young pets there to be levelled while I farmed a magic battle stone. Took a lot of dead Wisps, but now I have upgraded my Magic Lamp.
I think of it as a candle, and want to group it with my Lofty Librum and (maybe) Winter Reindeer. Bell, book and candle...
Unless anyone can suggest a better pet to rep a bell?
It is absolutely one of the better anti fliers.
I wanna get a max breed and use it as my go to moth killer
a must have
a lot appear by portal to stormwind in hyjal
First tried in the afternoon nothing for an hour, tried again early morning found 1 right away, and after killing surrounding critters I found another both poor quality
Even with H/P breed my Wisp performs underwhelmingly.
Light seems somewhat broken - I've yet to see it hit for double damage in darkness despite the supposed blindness.
When I arrived in Nordrassil, there were no wisps up. A Guildmate suggested killing the critters (non-battle pets) around the pond. Sure enough, 2 wisps popped up, the first was an uncommon, the second a rare.
These pets spawn rarly in the place of other pets. If you are finding none in the area, enter a battle with the pets that are up, and either battle or forfit then wait for the next spawn.
