FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pressnews.biz (Press Release) Jan 6, 2015
-- Sure, collecting followers for your garrison is pretty fun -- after all, they head out on missions and can potentially bring you back all kinds of valuable rewards. But what about your garrison while everyone is away? Oddly enough, there are a few different potential garrison denizens that aren't followers. You'll never send them on a single mission. But they'll come hang out at your garrison anyway, if you go out of your way and rescue them from whatever unfortunate situation they've accidentally stumbled into.
That's where Peckers the Majestic comes in. This fearsome looking raptor will gladly follow you back to your garrison if you take the time to help him out. Don't expect him to be too terribly friendly, though. While you can pet the raptor, he'll respond by promptly giving you a swift kick and running away. Apparently, he's been taking lessons from Ruthers the bad yak. Yet despite his temperamental disposition, he's a pretty cool addition to any garrison -- so how do you get this ornery raptor? You'll want to head to Gorgrond.
Peckers is locked away in a cage in Stonemaul Arena. Head to the back of the arena into the big building called Kor'gall's Hovel, and veer left to find a variety of unusual creatures in various cages. If you've unlocked the Gladiator's Sanctum in Gorgrond, you should be familiar with the area -- if you haven't, this area does include a bonus objective you can easily complete while you're searching for your newfound friend. Peckers is located in a cage in the back left of the area, roughly 37,70 for those of you using coordinates. Simply click his cage to set him free, and he'll show up later on at your garrison -- apparently he's smart enough to know where you live.
So why the name Peckers, exactly? Good question. Oddly enough, the original iteration of Peckers that you released in Kor'gall's Hovel was once a brilliantly colored purple and green tallstrider. It wasn't until he got to your garrison that he morphed into his raptor appearance. He's since been fixed, and now appears as a raptor at both locations, but his name seems way more suited to a creature with a beak than a raptor. Maybe he was meant to be a tallstrider all along? Who knows. Regardless of his unusual origins and ornery attitude, Peckers makes a pretty cool addition to your garrison, and he's completely free to acquire for both Alliance and Horde players. He might not be the most useful or friendly of companions, but he's definitely worth hunting down if you'd like to give your garrison some additional flavor.
Below are views from wow players on Peckers the Majestic
I couldn't remember where he came from, either, but I click on all things blue, both in game and out...! ;>) (anybody notice the little bird, in the tree by your garrison fp? If you jump just right, and click him, he'll ride on your head for an hour!) - bluepoethart
I like me some flavor up in my garrison a huge tree and a orge just don't cut it. Will definitely be doing some searching now that I have a wowhead link telling me where each is located - grysten
I prefer the boar from gorgrond over the raptor... except for fact I lose that boar sometimes. Where are you boar... - Domehammer
I remember when I first saw this guy in my hunter's garrison and sort of stood there, trying to piece together where he came from. I was talking to a friend at the time, and I think I messaged her something like, "Right. So I appear to have a raptor named Peckers in my garrison now. Should I be worried?" - Ritchian
I kinda don't like that dino. He sits in my Battle Pet Menagerie area and looms over the other pets. Kinda a jerk.- NachoBiz
Apparently I've clicked on his cage too because I saw him yesterday in my garrison. Couldn't figure out where he came from, but now I know. :-)
Had a little fey dragon too back at the pet battle building that was pettable too. Must have saved that one too at some point. (Haven't started pet battles yet so it should not be connected to that - DanielWallin
Wasn't Peckers the Magnificent the name of Sheldon's strider that gets kidnapped when his account is hacked (Big Bang Theory)? - concordantnexus
I remember freeing this fella, but don't think I've seen him at my garrison yet. I saw a raptor in a cage, opened the cage, and a purple bird ran out. Was confused as at the time.- Neztheron
Fyi, Birchus at your Garrison is Horde only... Now that several posters have inadvertently advertised their faction choice. - Mithrennon.
