If tearing through enemies as an Elemental Shaman, or cracking heads as a Zandalari Troll isn’t for you, then you can venture out into the fields of Azeroth and inspect the game’s adorable critters.

  1. During Warlords of Draenor, visit your Level 3 Garrison.
    • It doesn’t matter if you’re Horde or Alliance, both factions have one.
  2. Leave the Garrison’s main building and bear left.
  3. Pepe can be found chilling on the first tree.
  4. Interacting with him will give players an hour long buff entitled “”You’ve got a friend!”
    • Pepe will sit on the player’s head until the hour is up, or the player dies. He respawns every five minutes.

If you don’t want to have to run back and forth to pick up Pepe, you’ll be able to summon him by acquiring the Trans-Dimensional Bird Whistle via the quest What A Strange, Interdimensional Trip it’s Been. This requires you to defeat all of the Warlords of Draenor bosses while accompanied by Pepe.
