    Does it take too much time to get it? How much time(with the 50% XP bonus the game is giving this weekend) i will have to play this moba crap to get to level 20 and get the pet? Thanks in advance.

    Don't they send it in the mail?

    To answer your question, if you really sit down and grind it out, it's a long weekend. I find mobas to be tedious to play, so I'm not sure it's worth it but if you don't mind pvp-thats-not-really-pvp, then it might not be too terrible.

    I got mine straight in my bags so just make sure u have a bagspace.

    If you get recruited via recruit a friend you will get a stimpack (exp boost on top of the holiday boost) that makes grinding to 20 pretty easy (also two free heroes). Just do vs ai and take down all the structures for more xp. Join a group with four other people for the 5-man party +50% exp, then just add any one of your party members (doesn't matter who) for an additional playing-with-friend +25% exp. All these buffs are additive.

    Bonus note, if you play 30 games with a friend before January, you'll get 5 more heroes free + OW Genji skin. You might hate mobas, but eh, free stuff is still free stuff XD

    My recruitment links (region specific so make sure you pick the right one):
    US server:https://battle.net/recruit/7GTXD2TR68
    EU server: https://battle.net/recruit/75FR89KRXT

    I dont know if it notifies you, or how any of it works at all, but i grabbed one of your RAF invites there. I'm just going to poke around it for a bit, more than likely, but thanks for making the RAF available - i wouldnt have even known about it otherwise.

    I'm not really that interested in the game, but have a lot of free time over the holidays so i figured i'd check it out. Thanks again. :)

    I really like HoTS and Overwatch so the promotion seems cool, but on the other hand couldn't the skin be for literally any other hero... Genji is sooooooo not what I like. Also, "Genji mains"...


    @Topic - try Hots, enjoy it, and get a pet while doing so :) win win

    Honestly, only you can know if it's worth it to you. Do you pet battle at all? If so, Graves is still really strong, even after the nerfs. If not, I would say, do you like the pet's look enough to grind it out? If you're doing it for an achievement, I guess that's really up to you. I personally did it because I collect and battle pets :O

    I just checked my stats and it took me 90 wins with the stimpack to get Graves.

    Main thing, for me at least, was picking a hero that I liked playing. There's a lot of heroes that I just can't stand to play and made the matches feel terribly long. Find something that works and work on it in bits and pieces.

    Jesus Christ, it took me 75 matches with the XP boost from stimpack(and also with the extra bonus from playing with the help of real players vs AI and also with the small extra bonus from playing with a friend) to get to lvl 20 and get Graves. By the way, Merry Christmas, and don't forget to get your gifts today under the trees in Orgrimmar and Ironforge!
