    posted a message on The Chosen

    This achievement stands a good chance of being removed by Legion's conclusion.  From @WarcraftDevs (source): ""The Chosen" will likely go away eventually, possibly when the Legion expansion ends, but we don't plan to end it in the very near future."

    It appears that Blizzard quietly hotfixed the spawn timer of wyrmtongue caches the same day this quest became available.  The caches spawn in waves about every 15-20 minutes, down from close to an hour.  The locations remain chosen at random from among valid spawn points.

    My own recording of the cinematic.

     

     

    Two things about it stuck out to me:

     

    1.  As a person with a twin:  Cenarius can go **** himself.  So can Malfurion.  The sibling rule of "only I am allowed to insult and otherwise torture annoy my brother/sister" applies.  Also, I always have and always will hate being used as an emotional weapon against my twin, and can't believe that Malfurion did not proffer at least a token objection.  It is cute at a very young age to dress and treat twins like duplicates, but twins (or multiples in general) want to be recognized for their individuality as a person.  Few things sting as badly as being implicitly told that you are the inferior "copy" of the other.

    2. Why are Malfurion's eyes gold?  As seen and heard in the cinematic for Awakenings, there is a significant difference in eye-color between the Stormrage twins.  I went to Malfurion Stormrage's Wowpedia article but that was inconclusive.

    Probably a play on the figure of speech, "Bring home the bacon."

    Anyway, your character can move while channeling the quest item's spell.  Just be mindful that movement speed is much slower than normal, so be ready to cancel the channeling if you need to get out of the path of a sentry in a hurry.

    posted a message on Breaking the Seal

    The trick to this quest is aligning both the wide, blue beam and the thin, violet beam onto the same seal.  Once a seal has both beams' input, the seal becomes interactable and thus allows you to break it.  Breaking a seal causes a Moonfall Stalker to drop down from the ceiling to attack you.

    posted a message on Brood of Nozdormu

    As an additional note (as someone who has farmed this faction's reputation to Exalted):

     

    • Save the insignias for when you reach the point that only boss kills are rewarding reputation.  See below if you are a class that can drop from combat (mage, hunter, rogue) or have a racial ability that does the same (night elf, I think).
    • There is a nifty trick to quickly farming reputation from mobs in Ruins of Ahn'qiraj.  I do recommend finding something to listen to in the background since you'll have to wait for your ability to come off cool-down.  There is a boss in Ruins of Ahn'qiraj called General Rajaxx that has several groups of trash mobs and a few named mobs that essentially form a ring within his room.  Be careful about pulling the groups that are closest to boss - you don't want to aggro him just yet.  Aggro those trash mobs and pull them away from the boss so you may safely AoE them to death.  Loot them (occasionally a nice transmog item may be found, if memory serves me).  Now go back to the boss and proximity pull him, and keep pulling him until you are outside his room.  Drop from combat to reset him.  He will respawn along with the all the trash mobs.  Profit!

    posted a message on Hunting Lesson: Erudite Manafiend

    If you think you are going crazy trying to find Erudite Manafiend, here is your (and my) problem:  Erudite Manafiends only spawn during Azeroth's daylight.  At night, the spawns switch to Eldritch Manafiends.

    Yeah.

    Anyway, Bloodgazer Hatchling must be the pet that kills the Erudite Manafiend or be the front-row pet when the Erudite Manafiend is captured.  If the hatchling dies later in the fight (after defeating the manafiend), you will still receive credit if the rest of your team defeats the remaining pets.  You cannot defeat the manafiend and then forfeit.

    This is a neutral, unattackable mob that appears only while Bloodgazer Swarm! world quest is active.  You need  Azsunian Grapes in your inventory in order to acquire it as a battle pet,  Bloodgazer Hatchling.  The closest vendor that sells the food is Nalysse Dawnsorrow.

    Edit: How interesting.  The grapes are not consumed by this process, so you can sell them back to a vendor and recoup a bit of the purchase cost.  Also, you are restricted to owning just one.

    posted a message on Charred Locket

    The interesting thing is the disappearance of not just Alaina, but the two children as well.  I thought at first that the family moved out of the house, seeing as Alaina took her husband's death at the Broken Shore badly and there would only be painful reminders in the home.  You pointed out to me, however, that using "/target Alaina" will target Alaina Hearthsong... dead.  It's possible that she committed suicide, but there is no visible body or other indications of what may have taken place.  I personally believe that, as despondent as she was, she only moved out with her children.  Blizzard does make use of 'bunnies' to trigger spells or otherwise provide a mark for the game client to use as an indication to do/show something.  After returning the charred locket, the player does not see her or the children anymore.  How does the game know to do this?  With the hidden, 'dead' NPC.

    Ok, nope.  Looks like it is an environment bug.  Some players are able to correct it by relogging (did not work for me) but I used  Whole-Body Shrinka' to drastically change my camera's height.  I was then able to see her corpse by clipping partly through the bed.

    Dang it.

    Hi rougy1,

    I haven't heard of this quest.  I asked a friend who writes a lot of quest articles for Wowpedia, and she can't place it at all.  I also checked the mobs linked on this page and there is no data for any of those creatures.  It is probably safe to say that this never made it to live from Legion's alpha/beta phase.  I will go ahead with marking it and the other quests you mentioned - no collected data for them, too - as not available.

    What you are looking for are floating green balls called Volatile Fel.  They are found in/near pools of fel... stuff.  You don't actually have to be too close to one, since it seems there's a generous range on the spell cast by the quest item.

    posted a message on Time to Collect

    I solo'd this quest as an avg ilvl 832 Fire mage. Talents not optimal, but it helped me get the job done. http://www.wowdb.com/talent-calculator#Egoi  What my artifact rank apportionment looks like: http://www.wowdb.com/artifact-calculator#iZbLbDJIBIAhifhkBAAA

    Quaff a flask, it doesn't need to be an expensive one.  (I still use Oralius' Whispering Crystal from WoD.)  Eat a buff food, too.  I preferred Fishbrul Special because it's an attack that doesn't cost me cast time.

    Do not bother with Snaggle Sixtrigger yet.  Your first target is Rax Sixtrigger in the mechanical shredder.  Keep your barrier up as much as possible, use Blink on cool-down for sustained healing.  Snare with instant-cast Flamestrike and Frost Nova.  Do not stand in the bad that Snaggle launches at you.

    When the shredder goes Haywire, you have two options: Ice Block and wait it out, or do what the game tells you and launch yourself up to the ship which Snaggle is attacking you from.  Honestly, the Ice Block is the better option because of how much time the game takes to actually move your character from its position to where the grapplehook on the ship is situated; I took a lot of damage and this almost killed me in my first attempt.  Unfortunately, IB has a long cool-down, so if you are high on health then get on the ship.  If you are low, just IB and wait it out.  Be prepared to Blink away, use both charges of Inferno Blast to get a quick Flamestrike on Rax, and heal up while doing some casting.  Rinse and repeat, and Rax dies.

    Now Snaggle's turn.  Do not bother with getting on the ship.  Dodging the timed bombs is simple and you never have to worry about dealing with Snaggle's special ability that forces you off the ship.

    TL;DR - Do not stand in bad.  Keep yourself healed.  Focus Rax, then Snaggle. GG.

    posted a message on Call of the Scarab

    According to Blizzard, this is not on a per-realm basis - it is per region.  This makes sense (to me) because some realms have huge disparity in faction balance.

    I believe this will be a fun mini-holiday because it is rather friendly to players with alts.  Even lower levels may participate by turning in specific items, like food crafting reagents, to an NPC (which is purposely reminiscent of the original Ahn'Qiraj quests that allowed non-60 characters to contribute to "the war effort").

    How odd.  The only thing I can think of is that there isn't a plate armor quest reward, so if you completed the quest on a plate-wearing class... then maybe you wouldn't see anything other than the gold?  But you mention that you were specifically going for the leather kilt, so you were likely on a character that wears leather to begin with...

    Log on to a character that uses leather and open the Appearances collection.  Go to the legs section and search for the kilt.  If it's not there, then you may want to see if a GM can assist you.
