    Why Spectral Gryphon is removed????????

    Hi Blizz

    Is it me or am I the only one missing the spectral gryphon when I am dead in pandarian areas????

    I recently died trying to kill a Rare mob on top of the mountain in Vale of Eternal Blossoms, and with no spectral gryphon I could not ress my character at all..

    Blizz, can you guys please solve this so people who can reach mountain tops ress when they die doing quest or trying to kill a rare mob?????

    Why not try the official forums instead of a random place for a complaint?

    The official forums, hit them up.

    We're just a fan site, it's unlikely you'll get a Blizzard reply here.

    Blizzard has answered this a few times recently. They didn't think the gryphon was necessary, but they're looking into fixing places where players can't reach their corpses. Post a bug report on their official forum detailing the location you had the issue and they can look into it.

    It wasn't removed, they never had spectral gryphons in panderia.

    O_o I don't recall there ever being a spectral gryphon/wyvern when you've died in Pandaria. It still exists in WotLK/Cata zones, but not Pandaria. If I remember correctly, there was either a blue post or a tweet talking about possibly getting them placed into Pandaria zones, but there was no definite plan to do so at the time.

    There are just too damned many places where this is an issue. Or worse, there IS a way to get to your corpse - but it requires basically looping around the whole goddamn zone just to get to it. Graveyard placement in Pandaria is worse than it has ever been, and without being able to fly while dead (What's the point in taking that away? I don't see how anyone could abuse that) it's gotten to the point that whenever I die, I just res at the GY and wait out the sickness.

    Actually you're supposed to pay attention to raid mechanics and ideally, not die at all.

    hence ideally. There will probably be a handful of people who die when the fight is executed decently, but to say the point is zerging it from a GY and dying endlessly? Sha should have an insta-gib debuff like all other world bosses to prevent that. Galleon too.

    Judging by the number of question marks in your post, I'm going to guess you're one of the many WOTLK/Cata babies crying about spirit ressing. Welcome back to vanilla. This is why that function is in the game. You died in a place you cannot normally access (without the aid of a flying mount). Play more carefully and stop dying to easy rare mobs.

    Its amazing how many players will go ahead and say this is Blizzard's fault. You died to a rare spawn, I think its okay to have a heftier death penalty. Also, you can always find a friend to res you if you don't want to take the spirit res. But then you're just going to say how doing social things in an MMO is overrated.

    I'm also going to go ahead and guess that you're talking about Major Nanners.

    Major nanners is in an extremely popular location. On pvp servers dying to him is not rare in the slightest. There's no reason for there not to be a way to retrieve your corpse at such a location. The only places you couldn't retrieve your body in vanilla were areas that you exploited to use. Flying mounts are a normal means of travel and as such, death accommodations should be made by Blizzard.
