    Now that xp off can actually get into BGs at 29, I wanted to share a BiS for some druids and survival hunters. https://www.wowhead.com/item=43920/growlers-intimidation

    This is part of a questline. There are a few ways to get it. This requires flying in Icecrown.
    I've been doing it the hard way. you can use an alt to fly you around, but I've been using https://www.wowhead.com/item=44221/loaned-gryphon-reins. this is a flying mount, sorta, that a level 29 can use. This mount is broken. it dismounts you every time you reach a new area. flying across Icecrown, you will be dismounted like 14 times as u reach each area.

    Basically, you are doing the Knights of the Ebon Blade questline. You ignore blackwatch, Vile like fire, and the bone witch. take all of the rest and get the quest "to Death's Rise with all Due Haste". you will have to complete a quest when u get there. just listen to his story. after that u will get the "Intelligence Gathering" quest and open lockboxes. I'm sure you can skip all of this if you have lickpicks. I have not tried. this weapon has a chance to upgrade to rare or epic. I have all green ones and one rare. I wanted to create a full guide, but maybe I can do that another time.

    while using the Loaned Gryphon Reins, you will want to stay low to the ground and try to remember the places that dismount you. if u are survival, disengage will save u many times if used properly.
    i hope this helps. I will make a guide later, if people don't start to catch on right away. i have not seen this in bg on another player, yet it is easy to get and bis. well, not easy, but not long to get lol. GL

    Really like what I see here! https://www.wowhead.com/item=43920/growlers-intimidation is an excellent choice, especially considering the weapon scaling of BoE blues for 29's ( read: deliberate cUrSe from the feckless BLizz devs ) & the loss of the https://www.wowhead.com/item=791/gnarled-ash-staff?ilvl=27 & any others we may want.
    thanks for the heads up. My monk will surely be going to grab that later on tonight.

    p.s. After reading up on how to start the (short) questline needed to get this swag cane, It seems that https://www.wowhead.com/item=40666/note-from-the-grand-admiral a random drop acquired while on a daily, https://www.wowhead.com/quest=12838/intelligence-gathering is needed.

    do lvl 29s have access to the daily quests in icecrown? because the quest intelligence gathering requires being on a daily quest.

    You pick up https://www.wowhead.com/quest=12887/its-all-fun-and-games from Orgrim's Hammer; so you'll need a ride up there & for most of this zone, unless you have GF'ed flying. After that, there are only a few pre-req's before you can pick up https://www.wowhead.com/quest=12838/intelligence-gathering to get https://www.wowhead.com/item=40666/note-from-the-grand-admiral . Once you've turned that in,
    Yes, the zone quest level is 25.

    I also wanted to revisit this thread to cite the potential for an epic proc on https://www.wowhead.com/item=43920/growlers-intimidation?bonus=6700&class=10&spec=269 being able to hold an https://www.wowhead.com/item=52204/adept-ember-topaz really making it a BiS item. Good luck!

    Cool that quest gives a socket dagger that even at green is a good crux of apoc substitute. An easy socket dagger offhand for those who don't have the triple socket dagger from Kara or crux.

    Don't despair. It's still BiS, just... you know... slightly less-BiS.
    I nabbed a green on my guy too, & he's got GF'ed flying, so there ain't gonna be a re-roll, that's for damn sure!

    What are the stat differences for the blue and epic version?! Is green viable or should I re-roll for a blue at least?!

    My rerolls are about 3 hours, from start to obtaining it on an allied race. An epic would be a lot prettier. I haven't seen the epic, yet.
