World of Warcraft Patch 5.2 Guide: Mounts, Valor Gear & Buying The Farm

How do I earn the 5.2 pterodactyl flying mount?

Reins of the Armored Skyscreamer is the reward for finishing all the raid achievements of Glory of the Thundering Raider.

How do I transform into a dinosaur?

Vendors on the Isle of Giants sell the Intact Direhorn Hide which not only transforms you into a triceraptops, it reduces the aggro radius of creatures by 15 yards. This is only usable on the Isle of Giants and is most likely introduced to help you track down the big game on the Isle without getting mobbed by the trash.

When does Season 12 PvP end?

Season 12 ends on Tuesday, March 5th. If you believe you will earn Arena-titles or rewards, don’t transfer servers until the season ends. No word yet on the exact start date of Season 13.

How do I buy the Sunsong Ranch farm?

Talk to Farmer Yoon. He will offer you a quest. When completed, the farm becomes a rest point for you, like an inn, where you can bind and instantly log out. You need to be Exalted with the Tillers and have all 16 plots uncovered to start the quest.

How do I get that cooking pot pet?

Pierre is a new Engineering pet. Not only can you use it as a battle pet, but it doubles as a Campfire if you want to do some cooking on the road. Check with your guild gearhead or the auction house.

Update: Sadly, Pierre didn’t make it from Testing to Live. Maybe for patch 5.3!

The cook stove pet was removed from patch 5.2. There was no explanation given but I believe its in the patch notes.

That’s too bad. I was hoping for a little cooking pot companion. Post updated!
