Before you can battle these six trainers of Draenor, make sure you have the experience of beating all the previous trainers under your belt. In addition to the challenges from the Pet Menagerie, these seasoned trainers offer an alternate route to level some pets.
East of Grom’gar, Frostfire Ridge
Wolfus (Beast) - Bite, Call the Pack, Prowl
Fangra (Beast) - Flurry, Dodge, Dazzling Dance
Overlook Ruins, Gorgrond
Idol of Decay - Dark Rebirth, Swarm of Flies, Rot
Wishbright Lantern - Arcane Blast, Illuminate, Wish
Gyrexle, the Eternal Mechanic - Launch Rocket, Railgun, Repair
overlooking Embari Village, Shadowmoon Valley
Pixiebell (Magic) - Arcane Blast, Moonfire, Life Exchange
Doodle (Plushie) - Rawr!, Who's The Best Elekk In The Whole World?, Nap Time
South side of Auchindoun, Taladar
Serendipity (Flying) - Feedback, Cocoon Strike, Counterspell
Grace (Flying) - Slicing Wind, Call Lightning, Moth Dust
Atonement (Flying) - Alpha Strike, Nimbus, Moth Balls
directly behind Veil Terokk, Spires of Arak
Darkwing (Flying) - Shadow Talon, Consume Corpse, Anzu's Blessing
Great Kaliri (Flying) - Quills, Caw, Slicing Winds
Apexian Construct (Mechanical) - Batter, Entangling Roots, Feathered Frenzy
|Tarr the Terrible
right next to the Ring of Trials pit, Nagrand
Gladiator Deathy (Humanoid) - Deep Breath, Clobber, Scorched Earth
Gladiator Murkalot (Humanoid) - Punish, Falling Murloc, Shieldstorm
Gladiator Murkimus (Humanoid) - Punch, Counterstrike, Heroic Leap
Each daily will reward a bag of Pet Supplies containing some Pet Charms and a family-specific Battle-Training Stone. I especially liked the priest-themed trainer in Talador and the adorable fey dragon in Shadowmoon Valley. The Elekk will also help ease the levelling process each day.
Since my NPC was the first trainer location I knew of in-game, I was happy to battle her first. Her text may have changed since last I saw her but her team proved quite challenging, as expected from those abilities.
It’s interesting to note I was able to defeat four out of six trainers using this team but I will most likely use specific ones at release so I can level up any remaining pets in my collection.
As he explains:
We’re here to collect all of the artifacts, relics, antiquities and oddities that Nagrand has to offer! Currently, we’re hiring surveyors, excavators, adventurers… you name it!
If you’re interested in getting your hands dirty, talk to Gazmolf Futzwangler over at Stonecrag Gorge. He’s the goblin in charge of this expedition!
After completing a couple of simple quests in Stonecrag Gorge, head to Broken Precipice in the north of the zone. Besides finding Grebin Fastfizzle in a bit of a predicament and one of the most amusing things I’ve seen on the beta so far (thanks Cool), be sure to loot any chests in the area. Each will contain a Highmaul Relic and a variable number of Gorian Artifact Fragments.
These can be handed into Sallee Silvercamp in the Ruins of Na’gwa for some Steamwheedle Preservation Society rep.
Each item rewards a variable amount of reputation:
Additional reputation can be gained from handing in drops from a number of rare elites in the area. Gazmolf Futzwangler will give you an additional 500 rep for each item.
- Aogexon’s Fang
- Bergruu’s Horn
- Dekorhan’s Tusk
- Direhoof’s Hide
- Gagrog’s Skull
- Mu’gra’s Head
- Thek’talon’s Talon
- Xelganak’s Stinger
At revered, Kwilax Fuseshiv offers two pets:
Unfortunately, hand-ins were a little buggy since my 7x Highmaul Relics and 58x Gorian Artifact Fragments both counted as one hand-in each.
For those wondering if their Bloodsail Admiral status will affect this rep grind, Jonathan LeCraft confirmed it won’t be an issue.
On a side note, I happened to find another member of the archaeology crew who’d crash landed inside Castaway Cave. I have no idea how long he’d been hidden behind a waterfall, but it must have been a while as he kept calling for his companion Wibson. In the end, it wasn’t enough to save him.
I just love how much of a role archaeology is playing in this expansion from jumping puzzles (as a supplement to dig sites) to a certain pet trainer I’ll be able to battle. Hopefully, I can start levelling up the profession very soon.
After a certain tweet about a name change to my NPC yesterday, I was looking to see if my character’s name had changed on WoWHead and was so excited to see a pinned location in Gorgrond. OMG! I had to log in and see her for myself. The good news is, she’s pretty close to Beastwatch – your outpost location for the zone. From there, all you have to do is head southeast to the Overlook Ruins.
When you talk to her, she says:
This land is rich with treasure and adventure, and I’m not going to miss any of it.
However, I could spare some time to show you a few of my artifacts in action, if you prove yourself. Come back when you’ve mastered the pets of Draenor.
<This battle pet trainer requires a level three Pet Menagerie in your garrison>
Whoa, a level three menagerie requires the following:
- Town Hall (Level 3) – which is only available at max level
- Draenic Pet Battler – Win 1000 pet battles in Draenor to obtain the Level 3 menagerie blueprint
Edit: It seems this will change in the next build:
@cymre The "gated behind level 3" design was short-lived, but still made it to the beta. Wait until next build, you can battle yourself.

I love the fact that her pets are just pottering around and she even has a tent, some archaeology tools and artifacts lying around. It makes me wonder what her speech options will be though.
Her team consists of a mechanical, undead and magic pet, just like the archaeology and enchanting lookalikes but even though the lantern threw me at first, it seems to be a unique archaeological find of mine, err hers.
Looks like a pretty nasty team but I’m up for the challenge. How about you?
Any of this could change before the release but in the meantime, check out the video.
