Firelands Daily Quests Guide

Post by Termínator™ on Mon Jul 11, 2011 12:30 am

Contrary to what happened on the PTR, it seems that, on live servers, the only difference between the daily quests from the Shadow Wardens and the daily quests from the Druids of the Talon is that the daily quests from the Shadow Wardens are easier and faster to complete while the daily quests from the Druids of the Talon enable you to get started on the Death From Above achievement earlier.
Shadow Wardens:

Druids of the Talon:


During the Druids of the Talon's quests, you can obtain the following achievements:

  • Master of the Molten Flow requires you to kill a Flamewaker of each type in a specific way while questing in the Molten Flow. Not every Flamewaker will use the ability that you need to use or counter. Therefore, you might need a few tries before you complete each objective.

    • Flamewaker Shamans have an ability called Flamewave that leaves flames on the ground. Simply get a Flamewaker Shaman low on health and then kite it through its own flames to kill it.
    • Flamewaker Sentinels will sometimes carry their attacker into the lava. Get a group and kill a Flamewaker Sentinel while it is carrying a group member. The entire group should be granted the objective, including the player being carried.
    • Flamewaker Hunters have an ability called Wild Barrage that sends spears to the direction of their attacker. To complete the achievement, you need to avoid all the spears a Flamewaker Hunter throws during a Wild Barrage. This is probably the hardest objective of the 3. Stand far from the Hunter to give you more time to react. The location where a spear will land is marked by a black circle on the ground. Use any speed-enhancing ability you have. Currently, when trying to do this achievement in a group, it seems that only the highest player on the hunter's aggro table will complete the objective.

  • Death From Above can only be done during the Fire in the Skies quest. Every time you do this quest, a random elemental will spawn at Beth'tilac's Lair. You need to hit it once with one of the two abilities you are provided with during this quest. This achievement will probably be the longest to complete as it requires to do Fire in the Skies many times.

Also, while doing the quests of the Druids of the Talon, do not forget to speak with Thisalee Crow and Arthorn Windsong for the Fireside Chat achievement.
During the Shadow Wardens', you can obtain the King of the Spider-Hill achievement. Use the Cinderweb Spinners to reach the top of the highest stone pillars. Attacking a Cinderweb Spinner will cause it to pull you to its location, enabling you to effectively climb to the top of the Spider Hill. Also, do not forget to speak with Deldren Ravenelm for the Fireside Chat achievement.
While doing the Strike at the Heart quests, you can obtain the Ready for Raiding II achievement by avoiding the special abilities of the enemy you are faced with:

  • The Ancient Charscale throws a javelin that remains on the ground and sends damaging fireballs to players standing next to it.
  • The Cinderweb Queen throws spider nets at players. They deal fire damage if they touch you.
  • The Ancient Smoldering Behemoth summons a Rain of Flame, which targets an area that will be clearly marked.
  • The Devout Harbinger summons fire walls which follow its attacker(s). There can be a maximum of 3 such fire walls.
  • The Ancient Firelord has 2 special abilities. Fire Torrent is a frontal fire attack during which he rotates. Flame Spout summons a flame spout under you that deals fire damage after 3 seconds.

Sometimes, the NPCs helping you during this quest will spawn Shadow Gates. They allow you to teleport from one gate to the other, temporarily increasing your damage done after you exit. Do not hesitate to make use of them.


Unlocking the Vendors


After recruiting both the Shadow Wardens and the Druids of the Talon, you can obtain new quests. Each requires you to gather 125 Marks of the World Tree:

From there, you will follow a single course of action, whether you want to finish the achievements or unlock the rewards first. Remember that most of this is based on speculations as what we experienced on the PTR turned out to differ from what we have seen on live servers. We will update as we have more information.

  1. If you want to finish the achievements first, do the daily quests from the Druids of the Talon every day, hoping to get Fire in the Skies to complete the Death From Above achievement. If you prefer spending as little time questing as possible, then do the daily quests from the Shadow Wardens.
  2. Calling the Ancients should be completed first because it (supposedly) unlocks the Strike at the Heart quest, which enables you to get started on the Ready for Raiding II achievement and get 3 additional marks every day.
  3. Additional Armaments should be completed second as it unlocks new daily quests, enabling a faster completing of Filling the Moonwell.
  4. Filling the Moonwell should be completed last because it only enables to earn the Legacy of Leyara achievement and if you want to complete the meta-achievement, it does not really matter that you earn Legacy of Leyara so late because you will still need to do the daily quests from the Druids of the Talon for days to finish Death From Above.

Of course, if you are interested in a specific reward, you should unlock its vendor first, regardless of achievements and marks considerations.


Ricket's Daily Quests


After completing Additional Armaments, Ricket will give you 2 new daily quests.
At Malfurion's Breach, Ricket will you 1 of 2 quests everyday:

  • A Bitter Pill rewards 2 Marks of the World Tree and requires you to engage a Subterranean Magma Worm in the Magma Springs. To do so, look for yellow bubbles in a lava pool and click them. A worm will emerge. Attack it for a bit while avoiding its Lava Shower. At some point, you will be instructed to lay down the bomb you were given at a specific location. Do it then watch the worm bite it and explode.
  • Living Obsidium rewards 2 Marks of the World Tree and requires you to look for Magnetic Stones in the Magma Springs. When you click a Magnetic Stone, meteorites will start falling around you, leaving rocks on the ground that you need to gather in order to complete the quest.

At the Forlorn Spire, during the Shadow Wardens' daily quest line, Ricket gives you Bye Bye Burdy which rewards 2 Marks of the World Tree and requires you to use the given quest (Burd Sticker) to shoot at Druids of the Flame flying in their Fire Crow form over the Widow's Clutch area.


Leyara's Legacy


After completing Filling the Moonwell, Malfurion will give you Into the Depths, which rewards 10 Marks of the World Tree and sends you to the Igneous Depth where Leyara has been cornered by Shadow Wardens. Simply join the fight. One by one, the Shadow Wardens will be killed by Leyara up to the point where you are fighting her alone. At that point, Malfurion will show up and will constantly heal you so that you remain alive and able to help him fight her. At some point, Leyara will start killing you, only to be interrupted by a recovered Hamuul Runetotem. Then, you will finisher her off with both Hamuul and Malfurion. Completing this quest will grant you the Legacy of Leyara achievement.
There are 2 further consequences to completing this quest:


Fastest Route to Completion


This section should be taken with caution as it is written mostly from experiences on the PTR and speculation regarding possible changes on live servers.
If you want to unlock the vendors as fast as possible, desire to spend little time questing, and are not in a hurry to obtain the Veteran of the Molten Front meta-achievement, then we advise you to do the following:

  1. recruit the Shadow Wardens;
  2. recruit the Druids of the Talon and do their daily quests once, the day you recruit them;
  3. go back to doing the daily quests from the Shadow Wardens until the end of the event;
  4. recruit the ancients;
  5. recruit an armorer;
  6. fill the moonwell.

If your goal is to obtain the Veteran of the Molten Front meta-achievement as fast as possible, then we advised you to do the following (note that this will unlock the vendors just as fast as previously, but you will spend more time questing every day):

  1. recruit the Druids of the Talon;
  2. recruit the Shadow Wardens and do their daily quests once, the day you recruit them;
  3. go back to doing the daily quests from the Druids of the Talon until the end of the event;
  4. recruit the ancients;
  5. recruit an armorer;
  6. fill the moonwell.
