Primary only, shares spawn points with Lava Crab.  Spawn is at any time of day/night.

Confirming that these share spawn points with Lava Crabs. If you don't see either, just take down some of the surrounding ash spiderlings and fire beetles and you'll see some pop up shortly. Unlike other rares, these are spawnable with a little effort so you don't need to be in zone at server up.

If you are looking to maximise the capability of this pet, you need breed 18.  She heals like mad, so total health means very little.  If you go for breed 15, many times you will be healing before you took any damage (wasting the heals).  The idea is to maximise the damage output, and healing of the pet... both of which are based on your Power.  The breed with the highest power is the P/S (18) breed, and thus will heal for more than most pets can damage in a round.

I used this as my main fighter while I tamed every rare at level 90, swapping to Magical Crawdad if I found a blue to tame. This solos any standard pet battle team in the game, without complex conditions. A 4 round loop of 'Brittle Webbing, Leech life, Cauterize, Leech life', slow and sure.


There are harder hitting pets, there are bigger healers, but this little pet combines both in such a way that with few exceptions, you can run with a levelling pet and a taming pet reliably.

I'm still searching for my rare. fwiw, I have spent about 3 hours searching, and here's what i've found:


they do not seem to come up as secondary to the crabs, or any other pet in the zone.  also, battling/killing crabs does not seem to help them spawn quicker, seems after i captured a common one and killed a few other grey ones, they quit spawning very much, so i waited 30 mins and tried again (vs.  roaming all the lava pits over and over) and a few more spawned...seems it takes time.

I caught mine in a laval pool sitting alone, it was in the afternoon  server time on Kargath in the Sea of Cinders. I was lucky enough to get a rare s/s.


When leveling her I had up leech life, cauterize, and brittle webbing. At level 22, when fighting aquatics she could solo a group of 24-25 aquatics.  I know that my set up for her abilities means slightly slower battles, but she's tough. At level 25 she has been able to solo Wise Mari.


I really like this pet.

This pet is an excellent damage dealer and self-healer. Leech Life does work with Brittle Webbing, so you can use it alongside Cauterize for tough enemies. When you just want to kill pets quickly though, swap out Leech Life for Burn.

Okay server Cenarius server time 1:28 am. Found my uncommon in the center of the large pit in the middle....I need to mention this. 2 hours ago I literally flew around killed every lava crab I could for a while and nothing.... I left to another area and got some other common pets I was missing...Came BACK here and Searing Gorge had them literally everywhere....I had to kill a few to get an uncommon.

From the battle side I would say that breed 15 is the best choice for your spider.

If you're going for all secondary spells, then beeing faster is absolutly necessary, because you will web ur enemy before he has done an attack this round which means he will get hit by the net if he attacks. If ur are slower, then he will receive the first hit from this spell next round.

If ur faster, cauterize/leech life will heal you before you can be killed on low health.

Sorry for my english :)

The spawn of this guy seems very strange. I hunted him for hours starting at around 6 or 7 pm server time and I'd go to each of the spawn locations, take out all of the lava crabs (battle pet or normal critters) and then fly on. I did this for at least 2 hours and only came across 3 molten hatchlings the whole time. I then gave up for a while, came back 15 minutes later and there were at least 4 spawns. It's almost as though killing the lava crabs limited their spawn.

I'm not going to say I confirm, but I do strongly agree that killing lava crabs in the lava pools helps spawn the molten hatchling since they seem to share spawn points. 15-20minutes into my lava crab genocide I found 3 or 4 molten hatchlings. One of the hatchlings was common, so I settled for that over nothing.

No problems finding this lava wave fiend :) Half a dozen in the cauldron, right in the fire pits. Was 12:30pm server time (not sure if that is significant)

After roaming around Searing Gorge battling an assortment of beetles and spiders, this little guy finally spawned in the Cauldron over by Scald is.  It was after midnight server so I don't know if that influences when it spawns.  It was only a common, but once I have collected more i can worry about upgrading it's rarity.

At exactly 5pm, I saw these spawn in the center lava pools. Not many, though. Wonder if this is meant to be a rare one?

It's 3:20pm server time and I'm finding molten hatchlings everywhere in the lava pools of Searing Gorge. Apparently it doesn't need to be early morning to find them. However, I checked around 1pm server time and saw nothing, and also saw no hatchlings at night. So maybe they are a "day only" pet with odd spawn times?

The ss breed is the perfect counter for MPD. At 341 it's faster than the MPD. Use web so they can't change pets, magma wave to get rid of decoy, then kill with burn.

These blisteringly hot spiders camouflage themselves by blending in with oozing magma.
