I don't think 1 in 200 is accurate. server hopping and farming these guys is very easy. They will pile up in your bags in no time.

It's probably a complete coincidence, but I've been camping for the Jadefire Spirit in Moonkin Form on and off for weeks, and with somwhere close to 500 Foreboding Flame kills, I'd only gotten one Ominous Flame. Tonight, I went to the cave in Cat Form, and *four* of them dropped in the span of 10 FF kills. Blue kitty attracts blue kitty? Possibly. Or, it was just RNGesus smiling down on me...

I just got into pet battling this week and I've been occupied with the timeless isle drops. After days camping for the Ruby Drop from Garnia, I gave up and bought one from trade. Today, I went back to the timeless isle to try my luck on my next pet drop and went into the spirit caves to try to get Ominous Flame to drop. My second run through the cave it dropped for me. On to Jademist! Happy hunting everyone.

I was pleasantly surprised by this drop!  I just arrived at the Timeless Isle and found I was spending most of time DEAD.  The elementals in the cave were bout the only thing I could kill as a priest with flame buff and pw shield.  Didn't know about it and wasn't even sure what I looted!


It levels up easily, the nimbus is perfect lvling pet spell for slotting in something useful, esp if joined with anub idol for his annoying missing demolish!

Fast and strong elemental with a Conflagrate combination. Spiritfire Bolt will destroy birds, especially useful against Crows/Ravens since you will not be affected by Call Darkness. Still you might want to use Nimbus, since 85% hit is a bit risky. Nimbus will buff things like Cyclone, but not really that powerful. Forboding Curse is an interesting ability since it does both a Wild Magic type damage increase and slows your opponent, makes for some interesting combinations.

I really wish people would comment on how it battles, or the spells, or good pets to use against it. If i wanted the "I farmed X amount of hours and killed X amount of mobs and now i got it" Id just go to wowhead

Just wanted to add that this is an unusually large pet.


He is about the same height as a gnome, and looks more like an elemental minion than a companion pet.


With in minutes of summoning him next to my warlock gnome, in Stormwind, someone whispered me to ask how I got the "funky demon".

About an hour and a half of farming before I got mine, just doing sweeps of the cavern.

This pet FINALLY dropped for me today.  Other than the first week where I spent it on the beach killing the dancers for their pet for the daily kill 20 elites quest,I  have spent every daily in that cave killing the flames for their pet. I must have killed over a thousand of them (I often do way more than the needed 20, especially when I was waiting for Jadefire to spawn).  What was weird though was I was with another guy farming them and we got 2 one after the other!

Taluka's advice is spot on.  Would only add that the more buffs to have the better.  Would try to stay with in reach of the blue fires so you can re-buff.  I think I will be killing and dying a lot to get this pet.

Farmed almost 2000 of these doing the 20 kill dailies on 4 characters before it finally dropped. Don't give up hope!

I started killing the forboding flames whenever I was in the cave--probably around 30 kills in all.  I wasn't seriously farming them though.  Last night around Kargath I had one drop from a forboding flame that pathed near the area rock moss spawns.


Sorry I can't give a more concise time-I was too excited to notice it but I think it'was between 9:30 and 10pm.

I had this drop after about 150-200 kills, I stopped counting, but it was two hours. It dropped 2 minutes before server restart and I was so excited I didn't realize my bags were full till I logged in after server restart. I was so upset.


luckily, I put in a ticket and got it back.... He's so cute! A great addition.

So after 8 total Hours farming, 1 on another occasion, 5 straight and 2 after a break I finally saw this drop.  I killed about 400 or so of them and really do think it was mostly due to the fact that no one had been in the cave killing when I got back there for the last round that it dropped.

Got one yesterday while my husband was showing me around the cavern. He let me NEED on it, cause he's awesome like that. I knew he really wanted one too, so I went out on another toon and realm (lower pop) to try my luck today. Got one on the first kill. Lower population realms may take more time to get the rares down (unless people are grouping), but great for pet hunting!

The odd blue flames found within the Cavern of Lost Spirits have led many unwary adventurers to their doom.
