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?

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.

I've fought nearly 500 wisps so far.  Only seen 20 uncommon, and no rares.  To the guy who got two rares easily: I hate you so bad xD  Ive been fighting wisps every other hour for weeks and getting every single one after every single server reset and nothing ;3;


Edit Complain and ye shakk receive, finally got my wisp :D

After looking for an hr for 1 and not seeing any. I tab out read all the comments here and on a different site. When i tab back in im STANDING on 1 on top of that it's a rare!!! I've done lots of questing in the area so phasing doesn't seem to be a factor just a mater of luck.

Hi Maximus,


As stated in a post about Battle Teams, I have many different groupings based on a specific theme.  Each of the pets on my teams are named; this is just one reason why someone might want multiples of a given pet.  And if we're going to use our teams in pet battles (as I do), the rare pet is better than a gray.  So, there are legitimate reasons for capturing more than one rare of a species.  


Courtesy is covered by announcing my hunt in General Chat.

I believe these might be one of the pets that are afftected by weather/hour of the day. After searching for a couple of hours around noon and finding 2 or 3 I came back later that evening at around 10pm server and there were a dozen or more all around me! I saw two rares and three uncommon and filled my pet limit on them withing ten minutes.

Correct me if I'm wrong but if you caught a speed breed wisp it would end up with 357 speed and therefore out pace many other pets. In that instance could you abuse flash and have three turns of 100% miss rate?

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.

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'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!!

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.

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.

Spent 2 hours flying in a circle looking for one of these, i did clear the area completely of other pets, then one spawned, not sure if the clearing helps or not, was only an uncommon one but better than nothing, also did about 50 battles round there and none of them contained these as seconds.
