What is the WoW Dragonflight Forgotten Gryphon used for?

Normally, when you kill rare elites, they drop some cool loot. While there isn't anything noteworthy when you kill the Gryphon, it is used as part of an achievement. The achievement is called the Adventurer of the Waking Shores. This achievement requires you to kill 10 special encounters in a large list of encounters in the Waking Shores.

Outside of that, there isn't much else that this is worth other than around 8,000 experience. The rare does have a fair bit of health and is level 64, so it's worth probably killing when you're a bit higher leveled or if you're with a group.

And that's all we have for you! While you're here, why not check out some of our other Dragonflight guides, such as our guide to the Stay a While quest, as well as our guides to the Dracthyr race and the Evoker class.
