The Pet Collector's Other Nightmare
The best way to farm Captured Fireflies
Even though there's a similar pet now, the Tiny Flamefly that is obtained from a quest, the original Captured Firefly from Zangramarsh remains extremely valuable to pet collectors. During TBC it was usually sold for 1000 gold. With the increasingly easier ways to make gold in wow, these days I've witnessed it sell for anywhere between 5-20k gold.
|Captured Fireflies spawn only in the two green zones.|
As you can see, they spawn in a relatively small area on the northern part of the zone. There's less than 25 Bogflare Needlers on the map at a time, but once you have destroyed the last of them, more should have spawned - at least if your level is closer to their levels.
Once again, gold making and leveling can be combined!
A high level killing machine may have to wait for respawns.
The easier way to farm Captured Fireflies!
Occasionally you may find one for sale on the auction house, for a lot less than it's true value is. Personally I've snatched 3 or 4 Frieflies total for less than 3k, which I have then resold for even 20,000 gold on one occassion.
Neutral auction house can be a gold mine too! I've witnessed one pop up for about 10 silvers only, but since someone was just transferring it to the other faction, I would have felt bad and had to let that bargain go. :C
