Ghostcrawler Goodness

You all know my love of sparkly hunter pets, and Ghostcrawler was one I wanted really badly.


Key Points

  • Named after Greg Street, systems designer for World of Warcraft
  • Spirit Beast with the Spirit Beast Blessing – a nice heal to get you out of trouble (it also looks very pretty!)
  • I camped for 3 days, others got him after a few hours, so you need to be patient
  • You need to have done the Vashj’ir starter quest to get your underwater breathing or this will be super difficult

Taming Strategy

  • As a level 90, the tame itself is not a hard one. Pop deterrance and hit tame, the difficulty is finding him.

Finding Ghostcrawler

  • I used this map: Wowhead
  • Make a macro: /tar Ghoscrawler and put it on your bar
  • Adop0t one of two strategies: either follow the map in a clockwise motion and spam the macro, or park yourself in the middle to wait for NPC scan to go off. I recommend the former, it’s a lot less dull.
  • This Spirit Beast is unique as he goes in and out of stealth – he will appear, then 30 seconds later, disappear to reappear further along his route. I recommend you swim slowly along his route hitting the macro. Also an awesome time to take your Abyssal Seahorse out for a spin!
  • Have track beasts on! He will show up as a yellow dot – another weapon to spot him.
  • He is a lot smaller than you would think, and Abyssal Depths is gloomy, so look carefully for that glimmer of white and use the macro.
  • Don’t panic if you spotted him and he goes into stealth, just swim a little further up his route to wait.

Happy Taming!

20 Days of WoW – Days 16 and 17

Day 16 – Things you miss (post Cataclysm)

At the risk of sounding philosophical, I am really struggling to find things to talk about for this one. Purely for the reason that nostalgia can often get the better of us and we miss things just because they’re not there any more. 

Cataclysm gave a much needed levelling experience and I actually really enjoyed the changes they made – I felt it was perhaps a little fragmented before this expansion.

I’m afraid I can’t comment – I’ve just about reached my one year birthday!

Day 17 – Your favourite spot (in game or outside it)

Nagrand – I could live there. The scenery is beautiful and the floating rocks are amazing. From the Horde perspective, the storyline is also really interesting, with Garrosh Hellscream entering the picture.

I could babble on and on about my favourite bits in WoW. I do a Picture of the Week which features many of the most beautiful places in the game. I agree with my husband, with Nagrand, I think we could both happily hermit away from the rest of the world in such a lovely place.

However, I also really love the Jade Forest and often find myself circling around enjoying the view and fishing in the pretty lakes. This is similar with Uldum and its desert oases, or Vashj’ir and the beautiful underwater reefs, and finally, Howling Fjord – have you ever just stopped to admire the sky?

I think ultimately, what we both love are the details in the game – from the variable weather to the running water. Perhaps there are more places to discover – let us know which is your favourite place to hang out!

Sightseeing in Vashj’ir

Mrs B:

During our afternoon of starting Glory of the Cataclysm Hero yesterday, we did the achievements in Throne of the Tides – in Vashj’ir, as you know. Now, don’t get me wrong, I loathe swimming, I did everything to avoid the Vashj quests when levelling, I only persevered to get Loremaster. Thank goodness for account-wide achievements!

Anyway, whilst grumbling along on my seahorse, I realised just how pretty Vashj’ir is. I mean, look at it:



Anyway, I realised I really quite like Throne of Tides instance. I definitely had a ‘eureka’ moment when I realised, since I hate swimming, why. It’s because of this:


How cool is it killing a massive squid?!
