The Tale of the Cinder Pup

There’s been a lot of speculation on whether this mission requires both your character and followers to be geared up to 675 before you can even see it. As someone who only has one character above this level, it’s been hard to test but there does seem to be some validity as I haven’t seen any of these missions an any of my alts. Out of my four max level alts, none are above 675 but most have more than enough followers to carry out those rare 675 missions.


Some have noted the mission popped once they bumped their character or another follower up to 675. Even so, the mission only has a chance to appear out of a possible 10 rare missions each week.

A few days ago, I attempted to get clarification but have yet to see an official response on twitter or any forum. Hopefully, we’ll get one soon but I’m left wondering if anyone’s seen this with a toon under 675? That would prove the mission is just rare and not character dependent.

If you’ve been lucky enough to see this, please let me know what your character level was and if you did anything to try and trigger the mission.

Edit: Upgraded an alt to ilvl 675 which not only triggered a rare 675 mission but THE MISSION I’ve been waiting for.

  1. I got this mission and my character is ~680, although I hate to add to the speculation!

    • Oh, I’m in the 660’s, haven’t done any raids since HM, so there goes that theory :)

  2. I can state that my character is above 675 (at 690) and I have 50+ followers at 675. No Pup for me yet. :(

  3. I got the mission right after 6.2 dropped. Before I raided. My followers are all 675, but at the time my ilvl was 670 ish.

  4. My character is item level 671 equipped (678) and most of my followers have been 675 for a long time, but I got this mission a few days ago. Haven’t seen it on my alt who has higher item level and followers above 675.
