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.

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 :)

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?

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.

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.

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.

I think this raven is one of the best flying pets for pet battles. Reducing the oponents healing outcome is quite powerfull and blinding them is really great for its nocturnal strike.

Weirdly the raven doesn't seem to actually fly. When you take off on your mount it's dismissed like a ground pet. bug?

While it has been reported to be otherwise in another post, you CAN (as of 6.0.3) buy this after creating a Worgen DK and playing through the DK area.  Took me just under 2 hours.

I think this one is really overrated. I'd pick a moth over the raven any day.

I started a Worgen just for this Raven and got bored after level 7 since there was nothing to do except that boring storyline, deleted and will try the DK route instead.  I'm a total Horde character and have have no desire to build Alliance other than this highly rated raven.  But lately I've been finding that my Frostfur Rat has been a wonderful subsitute for high-end battles where people have recommended using the Gilnean Raven.

I know the glitch trick to get out of the Worgen starting..from start to walking into SW its about 15 min tops.  I only just learned of this pet today & have not tryed this w/ my lvl 1 Worgen bank alt but if i can buy the pet, then the farm of it would be about 20 min.  You can find several vids on Youtube of how to leave the Worgen starting area.
