Pet of the Day--Lightning Bat

Here's the concept art from KI:


Yeah, that's completely wicked looking . . . sigh . . .

You know, farming Wavebringer is one of the most painful farms for me in the game. Just to get to Wavebringer you have to pretty much do the entire Shirataki Temple instance, so you're talking anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour just to get to Wavebringer, and then he doesn't have a second chance chest. Yes I've complained about this before. That is why every time I see one of those lightning bat pets, I just FUME! It's the pet I want, but don't want. It's the pet that everyone that has one just holds over my head (incoming comments about the people who own lightning bats in three, two, one . . .)

Bazaar sniping one of these would be ideal, but because it's not an easy farm, I highly doubt you're going to see one of these pets. (incoming comments about the people who either sold or bought their lightning bat pet in three, two, one . . .)

So go ahead. GO AHEAD. WAVE YOUR FLAPPY HIGH! FOR I, THE FRIENDLY NECROMANCER, DO NOT OWN ANY LIGHTNING BATS!

It's THEE reason why I voted for the lightning bat to win in the pet contest at Gorman's party the other day. I don't have one. Having one would be awesome. I don't have one.

Woooh whee, put on your gas masks for this post, everyone, if you haven't passed out already ;)

Let's add another tally mark to the Bat-less side; I've yet to have it drop as well...[hops over to Mooshu with a butterfly net]

I only put away my INCREDIBLY RARE Lightning Bat so I could use my EVEN MORE RARE clockwork spider :) You know, I only realized I'd won the bat days later when I happened to check my bags and found it?

;)

Best of luck next time!!!

Actually, it was my lv 48 satyr pet I put away for the clockwork spider, but it sounds meaner to say lightning bat. I'm all about the mean. Queen of mean.

I hate lightning bats no offense storm guys...

CD said...

I checked my wizards and one of them has the (incoming!) storm bat pet, which comes with a lightning bats card. Since it has a card it's a no-auction item.

If a pet doesn't have a blade card it's kinda useless to me and i sell it, except the non-auction ones because they sell for 50 gold. So it's possible i already sold a (incoming!) lightning bat pet.
Other than the card pets i still have a rat magician and a clockwork golem which i kept for now in case the pet upgrades make them useful. But if they're still useless after the upgrade, i'm willing to sell it if anyone wants/needs them.


Some useless info: my death wizard's first pet was his level 48 school pet. untill then, he never got one as a drop.

Anonymous said...

i the brave pyromancer got one by helping a friend its awesome

Blaze Silverfist said...

Poor Friendly.

You'll get one someday, buddy! :D

Cody Shadowstrider said...

lol, you know, malistaire also drops them, its faster than the shiritaki temple, (I still farm malistaire) and i think he has a second chance chest... laterz






-Cody Shadowstrider








PS Maybe we could farm him together

Sierra Starsong said...

Which one's a more annoying farm, lightning bats or the green Pixies? I'll farm Wavebringer over Mali any day though, at least Wavebringer can be soloed. (It still bugs me that you have to have at least two people and a quick teleport mark to work the triple keys.)

Heather Emeraldflame said...

I don't have one either, Friendly. And you have NO IDEA how many times I tried farming one up with my first Ice wizard on my second account so that my second Storm wizard could have one when I first made her. She never did get to have one :(

And I totally agree Wavebringer should have a second-chance chest...but ONLY as long as it's not rigged like the Fire Gurtok chest is. That chest never even gives out what he is SUPPOSED TO drop...so I never throw Crowns in it anymore. I mean not one of any type of level 50 ring EVER came out of there for me to think that one actually could.

I would still love to have that pet on one of my first two accounts...so if I am bored I will send a pair in there, but it really is a lot to go through to get ONE chance at that.

@CD: Yeah, I was thinking the same thing and was gonna say, when I read that; the bat CAN NOT be bought at the bazaar...cause it has the card.

@Sierra: The Green Pixie doesn't drop from Malistaire?!?!?! It drops from Smogger.
That is another I have tried farming over and over again with my Ice Grand and never got. Maybe she just has bad luck. But I'd sure rather run Katzenstein's than Malistaire's. Katz' is like relaxing, really(lol)....soooo easy just to run with one wizard. And even though I could use up to three it's sometimes nice just to use one...lol.

@M.W.S.: None taken ;)
I know our bats are incredibly annoying...but that is kinda the fun thing about them...MUAHAHA!!!

Mike said...

That's a lot of FUMS! I would just forget about it, who cares if the friendly necromancer does not have EVERY pet out there. Ya still got more then me! :)




VIVA WIZARD101!!!

Edward said...

SAD D: I had that WOO!
Its ok friendly maybe one day soon we can farm it together :D

After all, Who wouldn't love to spend the day with the Master of Pets.

ZacMan said...

me love light bat! woo! richard shadowstaff lv. 25 adept wizard

Amber RosePetal said...

@ M.W.S: Lol! The pet is the only thing I like...the actual spell always kils me.
@ Blaze: I am NOT totally giving the winner of that contest for Friendly's sake! But I do feel sorry for him...
@Mike: Hahahahahahaha

Lenora NightWraith said...

I know EXACTLY what you mean, so fume away. I wanted a lightening bat pet so bad for my Diviner and every time I saw someone with one on I would silently grumble and yell "GIVE ME YOUR BATS!" lol. It took me 6 MONTHS to finally get mine, and there are some people out there that have gotten them first try, not even realizing they are so rare. It just goes to show that it really is all about luck.

Isaac Mistheart said...

Um friendly HW in a Graveyard just posted thought you might want to know.

SorionHex said...

lol Friendly, I have like 3 Lightning Bats Muahahah. I've only done Shirataki like 4 times too xD

JJ said...

friendly, i got a fairy queen from the 2nd boss in k lab! just thought you might wont to know!
p.s maybe you can get one too, if you don't already!

Tobimaro said...

I got two fairy queen pets in K's laboratory. It was the "hidden" boss after K, and he had the second chance chest.

I've only gotten a couple of other rare pets. Ice snake and troll, I believe. But it is nice to have my main pyromancer pull out a rare heal anyone spell in a combat.
