1887 health! Seems like this little guy will be a great battler. The shell sheild coupled with that much health makes this crab a survivor. Going to try to find a rare one now.
Got a rare after grinding these for exactly 59 minutes. Yay! I was on the coast near Goldenmist Village.
Just got a rare version of this little guy after about 15 minutes. Not bad! :)
Went to the West of Goldenmist Village, to the Coast where all the Murlocks are, and found a ton of Spirit Crabs, at least 8. Captured an Uncommon one on the 4th try, previous 3 were poor.
Just got really lucky, first one was uncommon, the next a rare! Just got towards the coast straight out of Sanctum of the Moon. Easy find!
so ive been farming for a rare of this crab for a few hrs now, uncommon are few and far between, but there are a lot of common and poor. on one common i even got a lvl 6 rare rat, and on another a rare maggot. will keep you all posted where/when/if i get a Rare :)
UPDATE: so 2 minutes later heading south down the coast (directly opposite the Sanctum of the Moon) i catch a lvl 5 rare 352hp with a poor snake as his 2nd.
On the battle side Spirit Crab is really strong (Vs.Elemental in particular), but also vs. many other classes since you have the "family-neutral" Dark Simulacrum which allows you to steal a spell and use it continuously through the rest of the match. I use the following spells:
Amplify Magic, Surge and Dark Simulacrum.
Agreed, this pet is gorgeous. Definitely has a ghostly vibe, and stands out tons from the other crab models.
It's my new favorite. I agree with the others- the image doesn't do this justice- they're slightly transparent with a blue glow/curling mist pouring off of them much like Magria-- and they look fantastic next to Ghost Crawler and a Swift Spectral Tiger.
The pet journal doesn't quite do this pet justice. It looks slightly transparent and has a ghostly hue about it that makes it a very cool looking companion.
Just caught it, they're around the murloc camp in the Ghostlands, to the north-west of the map.
