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.

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?

As a horde, you have to start a level one Worgen, level it up to 12, when you can leave their starting area, and then travel to Stormwind, and puchase one.  You are only allowed the one from what I can tell.  If that is wrong and there is a way to get more or sell them so people dont have to go through this let me know.

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.

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.

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.

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.
