request: video of fireflies technique
So I have read some guides and tried to put color on the ground, to bait a firefly, to harvest more color. However, I am having trouble doing it with any degree of consistency. Usually 1) No color is dropped or 2) color is dropped but the firefly ignores it. I have gotten lucky a couple of times where the firefly goes to the dropped color, but then the amount I harvest does not seem like much for the effort and many failed drops. Would someone be willing to make a video demonstrating how to make of fireflies effectively?

You should see where they intend to go. Then race there before them (easier to do when you're filled with speed that is provided by the blue color. Then quickly draw a donor glyph (don't put a lot of color because you won't be able to pick it up. However it's worth it when you get more color then you give away.

Always practice your Donor glyph before proceeding with the rest of the game. Master it and you'll have a lot less trouble.

The best way to capture Fireflies really depends on what realm you're in.

Moorage, Bridge, Fireflies - Focus on catching Fireflies at the base of the stairwells. Put drops of color at the base of the stairs just as the Fireflies are coming down the stairs. They'll zip straight to the color instead of meandering away.

Fog, Twist, Memory, Darkness, Hull - Stand on top of inclines/slopes. Wait for a Firefly to be close to passing below you. Drop some color, and let it -roll down the hill- toward the Firefly. If you do it right, the Firefly will go right for it and you can jump down the slope and grab it.

The Caves - Just drop color on the ground. The Fireflies will eventually go to it, as the area is so small.
