Getting Fireflies

luminescent spine description

Luminescent Spine is an item that you get when you catch a firefly. These things are found in the wild, and can be spotted at night. They can be somewhat difficult to catch since they are quite elusive and easy to miss.

portable waypoint required materials

The item is used to make a portable waypoint. Even though you can only have 1 active at a time, these things can be pretty convenient to use, so you can consider farming for the fireflies if you want to make a lot of them.

using the time feature to set to nighttime

Fireflies can (only?) be spotted at night time, or at least this will make them a lot easier to see. Be sure that you set your in-game time to around 6 PM before going to these locations.

where to find the time option

You can change your in-game time with the "time" function, available on the left side of the screen, below the mailbox icon.

catching fireflies

When you see them out in the wild, they look like sparkling yellow dots. Can be easily missed if you aren't paying attention. When you get close to it, you only have a short moment to catch it, otherwise they will fly away to a different area close by, but they can also just disappear entirely, so try to make it count.

You may not be able to find them right away when you reach certain areas. You can try to wait there for a few minutes and see if they show up, or just skip the area entirely since they might not be there for you at the time.

You can also sometimes find them by destroying bushes. Not sure if it works with all bushes, or only in certain areas, but the odds are not that big.

Guyun Stone Forest
