Nethaera's Light can be found at various spawn points in Dalaran.

Interacting with this NPC by using consecutive /cheer emotes will cause the candle to burn brighter and eventually ignite with a small firework. The pet is then automatically added to your Pet Journal, causing the NPC to despawn.

The spawn time on Nethaera's Light is relatively short (a few minutes), and it will usually respawn in a different location in Dalaran.

Despite being able to see and interact with Nethaera's Light after collecting one, you can collect only one per character.

This pet is a non-combat pet and cannot battle.


Magic pets cannot be dealt more than 35% of their maximum health in one attack.


Damage Taken 

50% from Dragonkin abilities

33% from Aquatic abilities

I randomly saw this as I was about to take a flight and had no idea what it was. As I was awaiting my destination I looked it up, and immediately flew back. I /cheer once and then it went into my journal.

I just got this pet in Zandalar. It was next to Zununu in the Exotic Imports shop. I /cheer at it and a moment later it was in my journal. Also, it respawned in the same spot about 5 minutes later.

Finally, got it. Had to take /cheer off the macro. Once targeted, run up close to the candle then /cheer. It went right in my pet journal.

I just found out about this pet.  I flew around for about 15 minutes looking and nothing.  I came back here and read.


There is only one way you are going to get this pet.  Create two marcros.  First is /tar Nethaera and the second is /cheer.  Using the target macro, I immediately found him on the mini-map.  Then I used the cheer macro about five times.  I had him.


Without the two macros you may never find him.

I used some of the tips fellow commentors left. I made a target macro and added target to my mini map. I found Nethaera's Light in a christmas tree. One cheer gives you the pet. Directly into your inventory NOT in your bags :D

I made a macro to /target Nethaera, but then had trouble figuring out where it was, despite putting a raid marker. I ended up using a Prismatic Focusing Lens to lead me to where it was. So if you are blind like me, this is a good way to figure out where the little fella is. Then I did the /cheer. It took me 4 cheers before it popped into my inventory.

(Previous attempts I cheered while too far away -- since I didn't know where it was and never got it)

Dont be on a mount or in druid bird form when you cheer.

Very good hints are left if you look thru the comments. First of all I found out, be very close to the candle before /cheer. I used /tar Nethaera which was true to comment, can be anywhere, I found it at 57/52 vendor near by Aerith Primrose but can be anywhere. Only cheer once and wait, it won't appear in your bags it will be automatically added to your pet inventory.

I've tried five times now to capture this pet, yet to no avail. I have the /tar macro and the /cheer, and yet I find it, cheer as many times as I can until it despawns and it leaves without me receiving the pet. 


I've tried different times and days, when people are around and not around. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help?

Thanks to all for their helpful posts.  The tip from Petshop about setting the minimap to show the target was what helped me to finally get it.

Love it! Thanks for the heads up. I would have never known about this pet if it wasn't for Breanni! Found her and captured her at 9:23 am server on Garona. 


Here's a tip. When you make the macro, throw in an alt command for the /cheer portion. It makes it very easy to find her as well as give her the three cheers she so richly deserves! 


Here's mine: 

/tar Netha

[mod:alt]/cheer Netha


Have a great day!

How did I not know about this pet until now?  I love fun pets like these that not everyone cares to get or even knows about.  Found mine as soon as I got to Dalaran at the Antonidas Memorial.

Just got this little pet. I made a macro to /tar nethaera's light.  Then found it - tried /cheer but it was  gone.  So I guess someone else was already targeting it.  Five minutes later I found another one and got it. So no need to worry about a long spawn timer on it. Thankfully I followed the advice of others here or I would have been grumpy!

I found and /cheered at this lovely candle at exactly 10:31 pm server time where it was sitting near Antonidas' statue. Then for curiosity's sake, I flew around in and endless circle spamming my /tar macro looking for the respawn. I flew over it just as it appeared near the Militant Mystic at exactly 10:36 pm. So I'm assuming the respawn timer is five minutes. Good luck!

Holy cow! Was reading these comments to get an idea of what to look for, went back in game and realized I was standing right next to the candle!  Cheered twice and she was mine!!! Thank you for the help!

The lost magical light of a Dalaran mage, or sentient candle with a positive attitude? You decide.
