Blue Moths are magical denizens of Azuremyst Isle who are rumored to have healing abilities. Red Moths are a native to the Eco-domes of Netherstorm, and were created by wild magical energies when released into the domes. Ashwing Moths are used by jinyu assassins as a decoy and a light source to pinpoint weak spots in their enemy's armor. Skywisp Moths are a strange species that have been found interrupting the spells of nearby mages or warlocks.
