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.
The other day, I was reminded of a recent visit to Questacon, our National Science and Technology Centre where my favourite exhibit involved swapping a rather large jewel with a bag of sand.
Swap a ‘diamond’ sitting on a pressure sensor with a bag of sand, so you don’t wake the statue
Much like the Indiana Jones movie, the skull (or in this case, diamond) was sitting on a pressure sensitive plate so you can see the similarities.
I admit I had to try this a couple of times but I’m happy to report I emerged victorious.
Meanwhile, it seems my NPC is getting a name change to something more fitting for a Blood Elf. Too bad I can’t just be an anomaly. :P
When I first played through the beta, I was never able to loot the Ancient Pandaren Tea Pot due to the high level of phasing so when the achievement came out, I knew I would be one item shy from completing the Riches of Pandaria. Thankfully, this was no longer an issue after the addition of patch 5.1.
Here’s the series you’ll need to compete:
As usual, each artifact may only be looted once per character – although only 18 are needed for credit. You will come across a number of these objects as you level through the zones but if you’re unsure of the status at this stage of the expansion, the following macro can help you determine if a certain object has already been looted:
where ‘XXXXX’ refers to the flag quest number of each item you’re checking. If the result comes back as 1, it means you’ve already looted that object on that given character as opposed to a ‘nil’ result, meaning you’re still eligible to see and loot the item.
The remaining list of objects do not seem to count towards any of the achievements but are still a great source of XP and gold. It’s no wonder these were one of my favourite ways to level myself to 90.
