I am so disappointed in myself. I forgot to check stats before posting one of my ravens on the auction house. Someone got a sweet a deal on a S/S raven.

 

So. Very. Sad.

Just tried the trick recommended in Wowhead forums of shortcutting the long, long Worgen startup quest chain.  Worgen DK can finish the DK startups much more quickly. 

 

Blizz seems to have caught onto this though, trainer Audrey in SW wouldn't offer the Raven to my DK.  Apparently you now have to have gone through and completed Worgen startup zone.

 

And yes, as other posters have pointed out, the Raven always comes uncommon and, since patch 5.2, only B/B.  Ravens acquired before the patch retain their original qualities.  Can occasionally find some of the more desireable S/S and P/S in AH, but be prepared to pay dearly.

I combine the Gilnean Raven with a Crow to power level new pets in the Vale of Eternal Sorrows. Most of the wild pets you battle in that zone are level 24-25 aquatics, and these two absolutely tear through them. I typically finish battles in less than 2 minutes.

I make this and the crow rares for battles against aquatic.  I love these two together when leveling other pets.  They are beast against the striders in the Vale.

When I read about the pet and how you needed to be a worgen to get it... killed me. I usually roll humans or Orcs depending lol... and to get this pet was a journey...leveling from 1-15ish then somehow making a huge journey because zygor lead me the wrong way I assume... walked from 1 end to another end of one continent to do the same on another and dying repeatedly lol... next time I will hire a taxi with a 2 seater... but finally got him today :)

In reply to a previous comment. My Raven's only miss against Elementals because they ignore all weather effects, maybe your opponent swapped in an elemental? I know I like to do that when I see one :) Still 50/50 but it's still funny and possibly game changing when it misses.

Does anyone have a definitive answer on the pet breed for Gilnean Raven's now? Are all newly aquired ravens pet breend B/B now?

Over the last few weeks I have used this pet a lot and have noticed that Nocturnal strike will still miss from time to time during darkness. I have always looked for any mitigating factors on the opponents side that might be the cause and there aren't any during these misses.

 

Has anyone else notied this problem as well? Because this is a huge part of this pets mechanic, and can kill a game almost completely when it happens.

This has been one of those pets I have tried to NOT want due to the need of rolling a worgen - 

 

Alas, I broke down, but not only did I make a worgen and get this lil guy, but 2 of my guildmates took the afternoon to make one and both sent me a Gilnean Raven so I could have a full team. (most likely to not hear me whine on vent!!)

 

These lil guys are mega useful, and strong!

Not bad luck, it is preset now to be purchased one time on each toon (worgen toon that is) from either NPC with the stat build of B/B. The other builds are no longer obtainable, only adding to there rarity. IF you see a S/S on auction or being traded out in chat, hop on it :)

Within 5 battles I get why this pet is so highly rated. He held his own several rounds against pets literally 10 levels higher than him. I did eventually have to bring in another pet obviously but that's still impressive.

Not sure what happened to your pet. My Gilnean Raven was purchased, leveled to 25 and stoned to blue quality somewhere in 2012. I checked it today and it has P/S breed, so it doesn't seem that all pre-patch purchased Ravens were unified.

Did I miss something? During the big "change" my Gilnean Raven went from being a stoned rare P/S to a green B/B. I never got a stone to replace it and assumed that all of them became B/B. Now I saw someone has a stoned S/S. And there are different breeds on the battle info. What gives?

Hi Yaafm

 

The base quality is uncommon. I don't think you can get a rare one from the vendor. I've never received any vendor pet of rare quality that I can remember. To make it rare you have to use a battle stone.

Do not underestimate the value of this pet's Nevermore ability.  When attacking opponents who have only 1 real attack coupled with two abilities with cooldowns, hitting their every round attack ability can put you in for an easy win.  He doesn't hit hard, but when your opponent can't hit you at all, this pet will clean up.  He's a niche pet for sure, but against the right opponent, he's unstoppable.

I ran my worgen lowbie to both Darkshore AND SW's Pet trainer and neither of them will sell him to me. Any idea why?

Remember fellow tamers, Elemental Pets are immune to weather effects, so there is only a 50-50 chance of hitting them with Nocturnal Strike.  I team this bad boy with Ghostly Skull to great success.

This is a WONDERFULL battle pet together with Feral Vermling and Bog Beast they make a team which can beat 85% of pet-teams.

 

Nocturnal Strike however does not seem to work so well on elemental pets. Don't ask me why, but it does mucho damage on humanoids.
