Do you like going on the hunt for bugs in Palia? Are you looking for some rare bugs to catch in the game? If yes, you need to go out and find the Spitfire Cicada. This insect is one of the rarest in Palia, and finding it takes time, effort, and a lot of patience. If you are someone who has these qualities, make sure to go out there and catch this insect. This is a significant brag among your friends and other players in Palia. However, if you are unable to find them, here’s everything you need to know.
Spitfire Cicadas are, at the end of the day, bugs. You will have to catch them like you catch other bugs in the game. They are very rare and have a distinct color, so you won’t have a hard time spotting them in the overworld. Well, once you catch them, you can gift them to other villagers or sell them for gold and other rewards. Since bug-catching is a very good way to make money, you can catch multiple of these bugs and then sell them. Anyway, before you think about making money using this process, learn how to get, find, and catch them in the game.
Palia Spitfire Cicada: How to get, find, & catch?
The Spitfire Cicada has an orange and yellow body that is quite bright. They can be found, like Normal Cicadas and Cerulean Cicadas on the sapwood trees around the Bahari Bay region. They are loud and can be heard when you are close to the trees. If you want to catch them, you will need smoke bombs and the other essential insect-catching materials that come with your belt.
How to find them?
It is a bug that belongs to the rare category which means it is difficult to come across. That does not mean they are challenging to catch, however. You can visit the Bahari Bay region and find the Sapwood Trees to look for them. They will spawn in all locations where normal cicadas spawn. However, they are time-sensitive insects that only spawn between 3:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. So, make sure you are looking for them during the morning and day. Also, they are generally skittish and are alerted by player movement. Your best bet is to be slow and carefully look around the trees to spot them. Here are some hotspots where they usually spawn:
- Ancient Aquaduct
- Southwest and Southeast regions of Pavel Mines
- Northwest of Pulsewater Plains
- Statue Garden
- Ruins in between Hideaway Bluffs and Windy Ruins
Things to Keep in Mind
If they are alerted by you, they begin to flee, and they are quite fast. We recommend using Sticky Smoke Bombs to slow them down. When they are knocked out, you can catch them the same as any other bugs in Palia. There are some things to keep in mind when catching them, however;
- They are orange in color, so you can ignore all bugs that don’t come in orange.
- You need to approach the trees with white bark and orange leaves slowly to catch them.
- Once you spot them, throw the sticky smoke bombs consistently until they are knocked out.
- They can be spotted clinging onto trees at waist-to-shoulder height.
- You don’t need to cut the tree when you spot the bug. You can just throw sticky smoke bombs at it when spotted.
If you keep these points in mind when you go looking for them, you will be able to catch them pretty easily. Once you catch them, the base version can be sold for 145 gold. And, if you catch the quality version, it can be sold for 217 gold.
