Hellfire Citadel

This raid looks like it will be pretty awesome; I was well and truly sick of the sight of Blackrock Foundry so a change is always a good thing and the fights I’ve seen so far are pretty varied. A couple of mechanics so far remind me a fair bit of Seige of Orgrimmar though the fights themselves are quite different.

At the start of 6.2 I changed guilds back to Deadline.  As I posted about before, they had decided that heroic was the only difficulty they would do and I  had pulled Z out to keep going with mythic progression and Cinder joined the same guild so it was nice to be still raiding with her; we’ve been raiding on and off together since Terrace of the Four Springs. It was great to be progressing again and though the new guild was  quite nice there just wasn’t the vibe that I had with my friends in Deadline. I missed the players enough that  once everyone starting logging back on in preparation for 6.2 I realised I wasn’t going to be happy knowing they were raiding and I wasn’t a part of it.  I told Cinder I was feeling really torn as I loved the progression but I missed our friends and surprisingly she said she had the same thoughts so we both said goodbye to Twisted and rejoined Deadline. I felt a little guilty for leaving Twisted so shortly after joining them but it looked like there was an excess of healers and as the only mythic upgrades I had won were through personal bonus rolls I didn’t feel as though I had grabbed their loot and left.  Toco, the Shaman I healed with is still really friendly and I was chatting to him while  watching his stream of Archimonde the other night, so they are going great.

Hanging out with my friends again is awesome, we’re not progressing as fast as I would have if I stayed but how I feel about being back with friends more that makes up for that. Being involved in guild chat with all our in-jokes and teasing as well as running around Tanaan in a guild group is fantastic, I am glad I’m not missing that. There’s been a bit of chatter about a Sydney meet up for our next guild meet.. hopefully we’ll all be together still in a years time.   I think if Deadline continues to only be a heroic only guild once Archimonde is defeated, I’ll look for mythic pugging progression rather than pull Z out completely.

We’ve just been concentrating on normal for the first couple of times in there as  a few people decided to have a main change and they need a bit of gear for catchup. Our boomy Neuro went to his hunter and my bf changed from Holy Pally to Feral Druid offspecced as Resto Druid (it feels a little odd when he heals as it’s the first time we’ve ever healed on the same class at the same time) and our Monk tank Thor  went to a dps warrior so while it’s all the same people, it’s quite a different raid composition.

So far the fights are quite varied, we’ve cleared the first 6 in there and I can’t decide which is my favourite fight so far. I really like Gorefiend, as getting sucked into his belly to heal adds is quite fun, and I found that you can kill the captured prisoners in the cages around the sides if that takes your fancy. That sort of thing amuses me way more than it should. It would be great if Blizz would put more interactable items in the raid rooms for between pulls.

The other one that I really like so far is Iskar, his story is so sad. He went to Gul’dan thinking he could get his flight back and gets turned into a fel corrupted monster. I really like the mechanics in this fight though, random players are affected by various debuffs and you need to toss an orb among them to clear it as well tanks need to have the orb to interrupt at times. Our raid uses a mouseover macro that throws the orb and puts a message into chat saying who is being thrown to which is nice and handy, though there’s been a bit of personalisation on the various messages that get called out.   At the moment though vudho keeps forgetting the debuffs specific to this fight even though they are saved each time so it’s driving me a little crazy. Hopefully I can figure out what’s going on it with before too long.

We’ll be back in there on Sunday and it should be really interesting to see the next bosses. I better get reading up on them as I haven’t looked past the first 6 yet.

Posts delayed by actual playing

Despite my best intentions to post regularly, I have got well and truly sidetracked by 6.2 and have spent a considerable amount of time playing and not writing  lately. There is so much to see and do in 6.2 so I think I’ll spread out what I’ve been doing over a few blog posts. This one can be all about Tanaan Jungle.

I don’t know how to write this post without it sounding like  a constant stream of I got this new (toy, pet, treasure) as I have been running around like crazy gathering all up the new items. It’s a bit like an extended birthday celebration with new presents each day.  There are so many new toys added  as well as the new Tiny Terrors pets that are dotted around the zone. I was lucky enough to so far pick up 2 of the new pets that have a chance to drop when you defeat them. I also managed to get Toymaster for collecting 150 toys so I can turn into a clockwork gnome on command.

Toymaster

My favourite so far though is the Jewel of Hellfire which turns me into a member of the Burning Legion.

Jewel of Hellfire

Seeing everyone out and about in Tanaan and randomly grouping with people is a great thing. It definitely makes the world feel populated again. Working on the new reputations isn’t too bad at all, every now and again I go down and group up and kill a few of the kitties for the Saberclaw rep. Z can stand there and take one or two on by herself but it’s super slow, groups are much more fun. The only one I can see being a bit of a pain the further we go on is the Arrakoa, their daily needs me to collect crystals that only drop from treasures, rares and the occasional chest spawn. Now I’ve collected almost all the treasures that leaves rares as the only reliable method of getting these so it means a rarespawn hunt each day.

The daily objectives are quite fast and all apart from Throne are easy enough to solo. The only one I found a bit tough was the Temple of Sha’nar but I had that one as my daily from the table today after shutdown last night and it feels like it’s difficulty is now more on par with the other areas. There isn’t a mention of it in the recent hotfix notes though so not sure what’s going on there.

The daily objectives are fantastic for leveling up my bodyguards. I’ve been alternating between Aeda (squishy tank from hell) and Ishaal who I love to run around with. Both are into the 2nd stage of reputation. I’ve found that if one is dead, I can  reassign the other to the barracks and just keep going. Once both are leveled up, that only will leave only Tommok to befriend. I haven’t tried him yet but so far Ishaal is my definitely my favourite, he stays out of trouble and I love Arakkoas so it’s a win-win.

The phasing of the big 4 rares; Vengeance, Terrorfist, Deathtalon and Doomroller was a massive pain at the start with trying to get into a group when it was announced in chat and not being able to get an invite in time but I’ve noticed groups are getting much better at giving everyone assist when they form a group for it, so I’ve been pretty successful with getting into groups lately. I have been incredibly lucky and picked up 2 of the new mounts though if I’m truly honest it’s the medallions that I really am trying to get. So far I’ve picked up 2 medallions which give rep with all the factions in WoD which  helped me tip over into honoured with the Laughing Skull so I picked up their toy as well. The grind to exalted with them is probably going to take the rest of this expansion though so fingers crossed for more lucky medallion drops.

The baleful tokens that create 650 gear are not overly useful though for Z, I did like the way the tokens from the timeless isle were BoA as it meant all my alts would have had a lovely set of gear to don the minute they turned 100. There are a few BoA versions around – the bag that can drop for needed roles in dgns contains some and there are missions from the shipyard but I guess I’m going to actually have to bring my alts over if I want to gear them up. The shipyard looks interesting enough to bring some alts over for the initial quests though.Maybe I’ll finally get around to playing more of my alts.

A little name change

Ever since I named my druid Zeirah, I’ve had a bit of trouble with how I imagine her name is pronounced and how her name actually gets pronounced. Back when I started playing, my mage was called Zira (zera in my head, not zyra) and when I made my druid my new main I wanted to name change her to something that would sound like Zira and I came up with the combination of Zeirah.

In my head this has always been pronounced as Zeer-a but to the rest of the world, not so much. Most of the time she would get either Zy-ra or Zee -air – ah. To be honest, I can’t really blame people as to how they think it should be said.  I know sometimes I have no idea if I’m pronouncing a person’s toon correctly or not and it tends to worry me more than it should if I’m garbling their name.

Anyway most of the time, speaking up and telling people how my toons name should be pronounced would fix the problem, and of course I go by Zee to most of my old guildies so it never was a problem how they pronounced it. But switching guilds,  and listening to how my new guildies call out on my name across mumble,  just highlighted how what I hear in my head and what my toon’s name comes across as, is fairly different.

So long story short, I gave Z a slight spelling name change this morning.

Zeera

Now lets hope that the spelling of this name means it should/will get pronounced as Zee-ra (I ran it past Cinderstorm and my bf to check what they thought it should be an both agreed with how I hear her name in my head) and as always, it’s Zee for short :)

The big pain with a name change though is all my addons didn’t recognise Z’s settings. Even though I copied and pasted her old WTF file over the new one, I’m still going to have to reset most things up. Luckily all my toons use the same profile for Eluvi and Vuhdo but looks like I’ve lost all my Tellmewhens. Maybe it’s time for a UI clean up anyway. **Edit  – oh I haven’t lost any tellmewhens, it saved a copy of Zeirah’s profile as well. Still needs a clean up though.

Helpful tips with squishy bodyguards

When one is dead (Aeda I’m looking at you here) you can go get another body guard to come with you while the dead one recovers. WoWScrnShot_061715_194642 As Aeda insisted on pulling and tanking mobs much stronger than I could keep her heals up (ok, maybe a couple of ill-timed starfalls may have had something to do with the amount of mobs that jumped us) I decided to activate Talonpriest Ishaal to come and finish the Everbloom Wilds daily with me.

He is an absolute delight to quest with. He doesn’t pull aggro off me and does a cute little drinking animation and best of all he summons a shadowfiend as a guardian which is super cute running aound after us.

I think I’ll have to alternate between Aeda and Ishaal because keeping Aeda out as the only bodyguard until she’s maxed out will drive me insane.

Making Buddies

After getting Leo to Wingman status I decided why stop there? I may as well make friends with the rest of the bodyguards for the achievement Wingmen (getting max rep with all the 5 bodyguards). Z already has Leorajh, so the next in line was Vivianne.

Since Z is still running around Everbloom Wilds daily for Laughing Skull Rep I’m killing two birds with one stone by getting rep with the bodyguards as well. Vivianne was a lot faster to get to max level, having a week of extra reputation from the darkmoon carousal really helped. As luck would have it once she hit max rep she offered a quest  to get her ability (yay portal to garrison) and the quest mob I needed happened to be right next to where we were killing mobs so it was a nice and fast quest.

Vivianne

But as soon as we got all friendly I swapped her out for Aeda.

 Aeda

She is seriously pretty with her green warlock wings. The downside to her is that she tends to want to tank all the mobs and boy is she squishy.  Leo and Vivianne rarely got hurt and usually a quick rejuv was all that was needed,  but Aeda requires my constant attention so far. Hopefully I get rep with her quick and can move on. Quite a high maintenance friend.

 Aeda 1

They won’t fear you if you’re dead Aeda….

I also decided to get Z moving on those older reps so she’s been flitting around the world buddying up to the various factions. The Frenzyheart tribe up in Scholazar Basin are hiding a toy behind their quartermaster so I’ve set my hearthstone there (with the garrison hearth and portal to Ashran in the garrison I love having  another port around the place) and have been popping up doing dailies there; I think it’s about 12 days from Revered to Exalted if I  do them every day.

I managed to get Z from 27 to 31 reps quite quickly (still a long way to 50 though). Questing and running a couple of dungeons in Borean Tundra and Dragonblight gave me exalted with The hand of Vengeance, Warsong Offensive and Tanuka which was a surprise as I didn’t realise I was that close to all 3. I also was able to get Tranquillian rep up really fast as all you have to do is all the Ghostlands quests and at 100 it’s very fast.The best thing about Ghostlands quests is it has my favourite quest in the game where you return a locket to Sylvanas from her sister Alleria. Once Sylvanas gets the locket she summons banshees to sing the Lament of the Highborne. Even though I have the toy now that summons the banshees (still can’t thank Thor and Cinder enough for the best gift ever!) to sing on demand it was still great to see it.

I found that wearing a tabard from Darkspear Trolls in Warlords dgns was giving 24 rep per kill as opposed to 3 rep per kill in Vanilla dgns so I might have Z running a few more of them. I also have quite a few cata achs to go so I’ve been working on them with a Dragonmaw Clan tabard on for extra rep. I’m starting to realised how much Horde lore I have missed by not questing through older zones as Horde (90% of my horde toons were xfered from Ally at 90). I started doing a few of the Twilight Highlands quests and up pops Garona quite early into the zone. Garona TH

I’ll be interested to see her story unfold as prior to seeing her in the legendary quests I only really knew of her from reading about her, not actually seeing her toon out and about in the world.

So at the moment chasing achievements and questing for rep is keeping Z quite busy in the game and none of my alts have had a look in, apart from me checking their garrison missions for gold. It’s going to be nerfed in 6.2 so I’m utilising all their treasure hunters as much as I can at the moment.

A flying achievement

While I’m really glad flying is coming in 6.2 (to be accurate, the achievement that grants it), because well I’m lazy and I like the convenience of flying, I’m also a little saddened it came about after the horrible response on the forums. I’d like to think it’s come about because the developers read the measured calm words of people like Matthew Rossi  and not the frenzied posts that make me wonder why the hell people play this game anyway if all they do is want to skip content. Really the attitude of “I’d do this (insert activity of choice), if only flying” was getting up my nose. No, you bloody wouldn’t, if you really wanted to do something you’d do it regardless.

But anyway, right or wrong, flying is coming and yet still the complaints are there. The most common one I’ve seen is along the lines of there’s too many requirements needed to get flying. Basically I feel it boils down to; “but I wanted to skip content and now you’re making me do it?”. Honestly, why the heck do people play this game if they don’t want to do anything?

Requirement for flying achievement

Loremaster of Draenor

This is so much easier to do than the old world loremaster achievements. You basically get shepherded from major quest line to quest line, many are even marked on your map with an ! and you don’t have to do every quest in the zone, just the ones in the major quest lines. I hit loremaster and still found there were quite a few quests left over to do, unlike old world zones where you quite often were searching for the elusive last quests.

Securing Draenor

This is made much easier now by being able to buy up the missions from the Garrison Quartermaster for 200gr each. While it’s a bunch of killing at the various locations there are things you can loot in each area, or slaves to release or trees to burn which all add to your total progress and make that blue bar fill up. there are only a couple that are really better done in a group, The Pit and Shattrath City namely, but they can be soloed, just don’t pull the whole zone and you should be fine. And it could have been worse – the requirement could have included you to do all the achievements associated with each quest.

100 Treasures

100 is only half of the 200 required for the meta achievement so that’s hardly doing “all the content in order to fly” really, it’s half the content. There are a ton of addons that make doing this achievement easier, Tomtom adds waypoints to your map and Handynotes marks the treasures on your map. Or you can buy a treasure map, once you’ve done loremaster in each zone, that marks the spots, but Handynotes means you can do the two at once.

3 Reputations in Tanaan

Apparently these aren’t going to be the grindfest that is reputation currently so hopefully it’ll be a little more motivating. With the addition of an Ashran portal in your garrison, you really can free up your main hearthstone for ease of getting around the world so fingers crossed there will be an inn near the daily hub and your hearthstone can be set there, negating the need to jump on a flightpath or a ride.

So what is there to be done once you get flying?

If you read certain places you’d be inclined to think you may as well pack up the game until 6.3 because you’ve worked your way through the game and there’s nothing left to do but really you’ve just scratched the surface of the game in order to get flying.

Pet battles – you can fly to each tamer – given that 6.2 is going to introduce a ton of rewards to buy with pet charms , this will be handy .

Quests – Loremaster doesn’t mean you’ve finished all the quests so you can get out there and hunt them down.

Archeology – because apparently this wasn’t able to be done when you didn’t have a flying mount.

and of course you could always AFK in the air above your nominated capital city watching trade chat, rather than sitting on the ground doing the same.

Pretty much if none of the above appeals to you, I would definitely have to ask, why are you playing this game?

I am happy with an achievement, saves me a ton of gold (especially if alts are factored in) that I can spend on a new mount or a pet or a pretty dress.

Mount Parade – just sneaking over the line

My Shaman finally got around to taming the 6 mounts that come from the garrison stables, and then by doing the extra stables achievements she gained another 2 mounts. The extra 8 mounts meant that  Z was sitting pretty close to the 200 mounts achievement which gives the  Armored Red Dragonhawk as a reward. Luckily with a bit  of flying around all the quartermasters I’m exalted with  and spending gold I normally wouldn’t  (yay for treasurehunter minions) I was able to just sneak over the line and Z got her achievement and a new mount.

Extra Mounts I rounded up

  1. Creeping Carpet – Tailoring (knew I was hoarding the cloth for a reason)
  2. Crimson Primal Direhorn – exalted with Sunreaver Onslaught
  3. Golden Cloud Serpent – exalted with Order of the Cloud Serpent
  4. Amber Scorpion – exalted with the Kalaxxi
  5. Blonde Riding Yak – Uncle Bigpocket Kun-lai Summit
  6. Golden Riding Crane – exalted with Golden Lotus
  7. Dark Phoenix – Guild Vendor
  8. Thundering Cloud Serpent – Guild Vendor
  9. Swift Forest Strider – Darkmoon Faire (seriously lucky it was a.  Darkmoon faire week and b. my monk had 155 tokens so a couple of days of dailies tipped her over the line)
  10. Swift Red Hawkstrider – Icecrown Tournament
  11. Tan Riding Camel – Exalted with Ramakahen
  12. Swift Purple Raptor –  Icecrown Tournament
  13. Swift Burgundy Wolf – Icecrown Tournament

When Z was showing 199/200, buying up the final mount didn’t give the achievement. Even logging in and out wouldn’t trigger the ach to pop  so I decided to be a little sneaky and try to tip the ach over by changing toons and logging onto my Paladin, hoping her extra 2 mounts might tip it over or at least force the game to realise I had bought enough mounts to qualify.. and it did.

Mount Parade

Not really sure how they came up with “red” dragonhawk given it’s distinctly blue colour scheme but I won’t be looking a gift mount in the mouth.

Now to get the next 249 for the Felfire Hawk I’m going to have to rely on drops and maybe the last few professions mounts I haven’t made (Jewelcrafting x 4 and Engineering x 2). I think it’ll be quite a while before I see 250 mounts in my stables.

Playing the Rep game

My mage, Zira (now Jazria) is my oldest toon and she’s also the one who had the job of running around collecting achievement points and maxing out reputations. She’s the toon that completed Loremaster, back as a night elf and got the explorer title for visiting every zone.

Night Elf Zira

But when most of the achievements went account bound and I changed my main toon to Zeirah, I took over completing achievements on Z but left reputation hunting to my mage. Jaz is currently sitting at 45 Exalted reps, a mix of vanilla, bc and cata reps but  she hasn’t touched Mop or Warlords one (she’s still only 93). Z on the other hand has all the MoP ones maxed, including the grindfest that was Emperor Shaohao and is well on her way to maxing out the Warlords reps.

I always had the intention of getting all the reps on my mage but it suddenly occurred to me that I really am double handling the reps this way and since the reputations in this expac are so.. for want of a better word damn boring – kill this, kill that – I don’t know if I really would want to go back again on another toon. Daily quests I really don’t mind, sticking a tabard on and running dgns I really don’t mind, looting bodies for trinkets to hand in I also don’t mind but mindlessly killing mobs is downright painful.

So I guess I’m tossing up between two options, keep going as I am, with Z getting the new reps maxed out for the rewards when they are fairly current and then going back and doing it all over again on my mage. Or, what occurred to me is  taking Z back through the old content and getting her the older reps so that as new reputations come out she can max them out in current content and I don’t have to take my mage through them all over again.

But I’m really not sure which would be faster, my mage has more reps but hasn’t touched the ones you can only get through killing multiple mobs whereas Z has all the reps from the last 2 expacs but overall doesn’t have that many reps at all. I know I spent a very  long time trotting back and forth to Outland doing the daily quests out there for the various factions as well as countless dgn runs during Cataclysm on my mage but the timeless isle grind as well as all the different factions in MoP took up a seriously long time too.

Taking low level alts to Draenor for the Pet Tamers

I’ve always liked to leave alts around at various Pet tamers, usually the ones that give Pet Bags like the Deadwind Pass and Winterspring Tamers, as it saves me flying from tamer to tamer to do their dailies. I also have a little Gnome priest that has spent the better part of the last 2 years stationed in Stranglethorn Vale doing the pet battle daily, as one battle will get a level 1 pet to level 7 with little chance of the lvl 1 pet dying, so a nice fast fight for xp for pet and toon.

I haven’t dropped alts off at the tamers in Draenor as the Pet Charms the bags drop were soulbound so I only visited the tamers if I happened to be near one when out and about on Zeirah. However, I noticed the other day that the charms had become account bound and that got me thinking how I could drop alts in front of Draenor tamers to do the daily pet battles as they could do the daily, get a bit of xp for the quest and send the stones off to Zeirah who could turn them in at the garrison vendor for upgrade stones.

I didn’t want to move any 90+ alts that have opened up their garrison as I like being able to do their missions daily, they bring in a nice bit of gold and the xp missions are handy and as their minions get higher ilvls and open up the higher gear missions they do missions to give 645 gear for when they hit level 100. So that meant bringing alts that are sub-90 into Draenor. I decided to try moving my level 43 rogue, Zeira down to Spires of Arak to Vesharr. I chose this tamer as he’s in a town so I figured there should be little to aggro around him and possibly  a close-by mailbox. Turns out there isn’t a mailbox in that town but the flightpath to Axefall is right next to the tamer so I could make my back to Axefall and post the charms away.

The first step in getting my toon to Draenor was actually getting to the Timeless Isle in Pandaria first to use the portal into Gorgond. A friendly mage with a portal to the Shrine took care of that. Given how low level she was I asked my bf to let me borrow his level 100 toon to fly her over to the Timeless isle and escort her through Draenor.

Once on the isle I made my way to the underwater cave, just near Stinkbraid’s pirate ship.

Timeless Isle chair portal map

In the cave there is a circle of chairs surrounding a bonfire. Sitting in a chair and clicking the Bonfire teleports you to the north-east edge of Gorgond. Having a way to get non-90s to Draenor was a genius move on Blizzards behalf.

  Timeless Isle chair portalGorgond chair portal

Getting through Gorgond and down to Spires took a bit of patience and time. I did have it in mind to stealth my way through, but stealth broke instantly and her aggro radius was huge so mobs basically fell over each other to get to her from half the zone away, she definitely needed a bodyguard to avoid a massive corpse drag through the zones.

Flipping between screens to attack the mobs and then rez my little toon was a little slow (and frustrating) so my bf kindly offered to come play his toon himself and that made the rest of the trip down to Spires much faster. I would recommend if you want to take a very low-level into Draenor, see if you can find a friend who’s willing to devote a bit of time to helping you and try to make sure they’re on a class that can rez, it’ll save so much time compared to having to run back to your corpse.

Vesharr

Putting a low-level toon in front of Vesharr was so much fun I  decided to move a second toon down to Shadowmoon Valley to Ashlei. I  figured Canji, my level 90 Alliance hunter who I don’t have plans to level any time soon,would be perfect. The higher level toon made getting through Draenor a breeze compared to the rogue and she was more than able to solo her way down to Shadowmoon.

She was able to fly herself to the isle and then I chose a different path to take which skirted most of the mobs in Gorgond and at 90 her camouflage (stealth ability) didn’t break even in aggro range so I was able to walk pretty much the whole way down through Gorgond, through Talador into Zangarra and then ride down the Taanan Channel and into Shadowmoon. Much simpler and faster!

Cliff Path in Gorgond

I wouldn’t mind moving one more toon over to Nagrand but it’s a much further trip than Spires and Shadowmoon, so  I’ll leave that for another day.

Draenor Tamers and low level alt viability

Vesharr – Spires of Arak.

No aggro around the Tamer as well as access to a repairs/vendors and an inn for faster logout. There’s no mailbox but the flightpath to Axefall is right there (Make sure you pick up Axefall flightpath on the way through) and you can fly to Axefall, post your charms and fly back without drawing aggro.  Not sure how this would go for Alliance characters as I don’t know the Alliance town nearby but I’m guessing it would probably be fine.

Tarr the Terrible – Nagrand

This will probably be the next tamer I try to get an alt to. High in the north of Nagrand it’s a lot longer run than to Spires but once there it looks like there should be little mobs to aggro around the tamer and there is a mailbox and vendor in the immediate area. It also means easy access to the black market auction house to see what’s listed.

Ashlei – Shadowmoon Valley

Much easier for an Alliance alt. Ashlei is fairly close to Embaari Village which gives access to vendors/mailboxes and repairs. There is a mob that pats close by but I’m don’t think even a low alt would be in aggro range. No mailbox near by for Horde.

Gargra –Frostfire Ridge

Low chance to draw aggro however no access to any mailboxes so your charms are going to be a bit difficult to post away. Fine if you want to let them accumulate for a bit though.

Taralune – Talador

Should be ok for aggro once you’re there but I couldn’t find any close by mailboxes.

Cymre – Gorgond

I don’t think I’d try this one. I stopped past her on the way through with Canji and it looks like the mobs are super close. I think they’d aggro on a low level alt pretty easily and there are no mailboxes close by.

Mobs around Cymre

Graves

  I’ve been waiting rather impatiently all day for Graves to find his way to me, I do love getting new pets!

I had checked on Heros before I went to work this morning and when I came home but there was no notification of Graves’ arrival either time. Then tonight after raid, I logged back into Heros and there was a notification that I had received Graves as a reward for reaching level 20.

I logged back into wow but Graves still wasn’t showing up, but after I closed and restarted the launcher and wow I had mail from Breanni letting me know this little guy was found in Duskwood Cemetary and was looking for a home.
