After a long night of battling common and uncommon Widow Spiderlings, my fellow band of Tiny Harvesters sat by the side of the road under a dark tree dripping with spider webs.  We drank crude oil and unleaded gas.  Our gears were tired; it had been a long night, when lo and behold a Widow sat down beside us.  We were undaunted.  It would be close, we were drunk from oil and gas, but we were more drunk for battle.  After a short fight we caged the rare wily beast.

I spent 3 nights looking for my rare Widow Spiderling, and I can confirm the following: 

- they spawn at exactly 8:00pm server time.  If you are in the right spot, you'll see a bunch of them appear instantly.  I waited in the area east of Raven Hill, north of the road, saw 8 to 10 of them appear at same time.

- some will spawn inside trees.  Simply target them with "/target Widow", and then use your 'interact with target' key bind.  It worked every time for me.

I was collecting the "unique to area" pets and annoyed at myself that I didn't pick up one of these the night before.  Was by Raven Hill/Twilight Grove border checking out the Dusk hatchlings and there was a lone widow spiderling, sort of stuck in a tree!  It was 10:30 am so it is possible to find one during the day.  I grabbed it for ach, only a common but at least it saves me a trip back here.  Duskwood gives me the heebie geebies!

I just battled and caught a green Widow Spiderling at 1:54pm local and server time in Duskwood.  I'm on Ysera.  I just wanted to report that since the description says that this is an evening only pet.  I had previously caught and/or battled gray ones but those happened between 8pm and 10pm local and server time.


edit: It was the second behind a Dusk Spiderling.  The gray ones were behind Dusks as well.

Widow spiders are very beautiful creatures in "real life" and the Warcraft version is no exception. If you are a spider lover, make your way over to Duskwood and grab yourself one of these deadly ladies. You won't be disappointed! Happy hunting.

This seems to be tied to the sun going down in-game, if you fly up high enough to see it

Showed up sometime between 9-9:30pm server time. They respawn very quickly, so go nuts. Little green paws were popping up almost as quickly as I could kill them!

Has anyone ever seen a main spawn? I am running around for a half hour, and still nothing. 830-9 server.

as previously mentioned, this spider only comes out at night. i saw they started popping up at 8:30pm server time, on rexxar. there were lots out camping for these buggers, so perhaps i didn't see them before hand. they can also double up as a second pet with all the others in the zone, saw mainly with skunks, dusk spiderlings, rats, and mice. good luck to those getting it, my rare was off the main road. also, i saw one in a tree that was untargetable, at (35.01, 53.06), on the raven hill side.

Remember to set your team up appropriately BEFORE you start hunting. This morning at about 0528 hrs I spotted a Widow Spiderling. I realized that I still had my big pets slotted and risked killing it rather than capturing it, as I paused to rotate to smaller pets *BOOM* the two on my screen blinked out at 0529 hrs. :-(

Oh well, there's always tomorrow morning as I need to start prepping for work! :-)

I have seen these as primary spawns as late as 8:00 am CST, but they DO come as secondaries other times of the day.

After thinking I was done for, witht hem being a 'night pet', reading that you can capture them as secondaries, gave me hope, my first day trying for one, opened a battle with 4 dusk spiderlings, hoping for this pet, no luck, so i flew over to the western side of duskwood, saw a black rat, decided to give it a shot, to my amazement, a rare widow spiderling as a secondary, during the day. Thanks to all the comments here, other wise i would have given up.

battled for like and hour and a half in total (over 2 days) got a poor quality as a 2nd to a skunk, then today got an uncommon 2nd to a dusky spiderling. Also confirming that you can catch these in the daylight hours. caught both the poor and the uncommon in amongst the black widow mobs, on the west side of Twilight Grove

Widow spiderlings have plenty of time to explore Duskwood once they take care of their pesky family commitments.
