Nagrand Rares

2

Seafaring ogres claim the south of windswept Nagrand, and they seek to dominate both the land and the orcs who dwell upon it. But more cryptic threats abound: a strange mist pours from the center of the plains, embodiments of nature stir around the Throne of the Elements, and the otherworldly crystals of Oshu’gun draw questers and fortune-seekers from all over Draenor.

From the official site

Nagrand is chock full of interesting beasts but I have to say I was really excited to find one of the rares below. Serious pet collectors will recall the hours spent fishing a certain little lake in the hopes of looting their own Magical Crawdad. I really can’t tell you how many hours I endured because it took a total of FIVE Mr. Pinchys to collect my own but you can be sure I’ll be having a good stern word with his dad very soon.

I haven’t explored the whole area yet so if you come across any I don’t have, let me know in the comments below. As of now, I’m also missing the River Calf so if you’ve seen one in Nagrand, please share the location. In the meantime, I hope to post my Wild Pets of Draenor post very soon.

Repel the Invasion

2

Yesterday I noticed the quest was available for the Garrison Invasion scenario so I decided to give it a go. I had no idea what to expect so I tried to play it by ear. Let me just say it was pretty intense coming from no background info. I had a huge follower in my group which made it really hard to see. I was supposed to follow Legionnaire Grimjaw but quickly lost sight of him thanks to my huge lunky friend. The price of receiving a random bunch of followers, I guess.

Looking back at the video, you can see Grimjaw veer left while I continued straight thinking if I couldn’t keep sight of the Legionnaire, I’ll just follow this hulking giant. I almost made it to the mine thinking this was just ridiculous and stopped when I noticed my posse stopped too. Oh no, they were following me! That’s when I saw all the action happening behind me on the minimap.

A few minutes into it, I started to work out what the objectives actually were. Besides killing the goren, any fallen defenders would need to be healed except my defenders were all Lunarfall Guards. It looks like you’re supposed to click on the blood drop icon to heal then back up which is a channelled ability but because they were all hostile to me, many of them perished which I probably lost points for.

The other thing I noticed were townsfolk who needed to be escorted to a safe area. I just led them into the Town Hall which seemed to work. After several minutes and a few deaths, I ended up DC’ing which was pretty disappointing. I think my tally was around 280 by that time but I thought I’d give it a try later.

Today I decided to give it another go. It turns out there are four stages ending with you defeating the Gronn. I was sitting at 356 tally points before all my bonus points came in and by the end I had over 400. I can’t tell you the exact number because I DC’ed just as I was going to turn the quest in.

I have to admit I was surprised to get so many achievements including Gold Invasion so I guess I did pretty well. According to the bonus text, a lot of the buildings remained intact so I guess that’s something else to do.

Pet Menagerie

2

The Pet Menagerie becomes available once you upgrade to a level 2 garrison but before you can unlock the plot, you’ll need to complete the quest Pet Versus Pests available from your garrison Kennel Master. Defeating all three legendary pets unlocks the plot and will eventually open up the daily to battle rotating challengers at level 3.

Pets vs Pests
All three pests share the Elite buff which reduces all damage taken by 50% and cannot be dealt more than 35% of their health in one attack.
Gorfu
Gorefu (Aquatic)
Deep Bite, Mudslide, Feed
Carrotus Maximus
Carrotus Maximus (Elemental)
Ironbark, Aged Yolk, Leech Seed
Gnawface
Gnawface (Critter)
Sneaky Bite, Crouch, Call Darkness

 

The daily challenges are likely to be account-wide and currently reward 15x Pet Charms. Unfortunately there’s no pet vendor at the moment but I look forward to seeing what they have for sale.

I was really surprised to see all these pets in my garrison today, especially when I only expected the daily but I found them all to be very doable. It really helps when you have your full collection unlike the PTR for the Celestial Tournament but expect this post to expand as I complete all the challenges.

As usual, you can check out my strategies on YouTube.
