Same stats as Lofty Libram and 3 abilities(Shadow Shock, Amplify Magic and Curse of Doom) is the same. The other three attacks are a bit more diverse on the Grimoire. 2 DoT's and a very useful avoidance move. Just by the Meteor Strike alone this book feels more useful than the other one. The DoT's go well with Wild Magic type buffs, but beware of Sandstorm/Shields. Should be a solid pet, but to me it feels a bit on the weak side.

I still cannot redeem this. I have an original card I just scratched, received the code online. Went to redeem it in-game and it keeps giving me the "couldn't validate code. please try again". I deleted cache, wtf folders and disabled all add-ons and still no luck. Opened a ticket.


Update: Apparently I am an idiot and I had it in bags the entire time. That or the service department deposited it in my bags after I called.

Just picked a GREEN version on AH lastnight.  Aren't they all suppose to be blue now or are they not changing the one's already in-game?


I re-deemed one myself a few days ago and it was blue.


Anyone else still have or finding some are green still?

It's official, the fact it's Uncommon is a bug.  It's expected to be patched soon to be rare.



Pretty cool pet actually!

Anyone experiencing a problem entering the code to redeem the pet? I entered my card code then received another. Went to Booty, talked to Landro, selected Grimoire copy/pasted code into the box and nothing. I did this three times. No pet in my journal....


**UPDATE- It was an add-on issue. I had to go into my ElvUI & disable it's skins With the default blizz redeem code box skin, it allowed me to enter the full code. Now I have the pet

Hmmm..Just tried to redeem my code at Landro is not showing that he has it.  Hopefully this is a bug and I'm not getting screwed.  I tried this again with landro but clicked on betrayal of the gaurdian instead of Timewalkers, found it there.

Aside from the fact it's uncommon, does anyone else feel this pet is useless in battle? The spells do not hit for much, and the Meteor spell most times does not miss or get dodged, it just doesn't do any damage at all. Like it was never cast. I levelled him up to 23 so far, but I cannot fathom using him in combat anymore. For me it's a waste. If anyone could shed light on properly using it, please let me know.

Don't despair. Cory Stockton tweeted yesterday about the uncommom quality Gusting Grimoire: 'It's a bug, we will hotfix soon.'

I have to agree with all that have said but this being an uncommon pet is absolute BS.  I have had the code to turn in for over a week and went ahead to get it this morning, all excited and looking forward to my new pet.  I get the item and it's rare, learn it and it's uncommon.  Not to sure if I am more upset or let down that I got lucky and found the card only to feel duped.  All of my other tcg pet's are rare so why not this one.

I agree... Why is a rare pet uncommon? I guess it's ticket time cause this is BS.

I just redeemed the pet and after learning it, it was uncommon quality? I hope this is a bug. Anyone else experience this?

A fel-tainted tome whose secrets are so terrible and bizarre that its pages have taken on an eerie semblance of life. Found on many a warlock's nightstand.
