Hellfire Quest Rewards.

Aye!

I’m using Wowhead and a quest reward item filter.  You level 58 hunters are going to love this list.

 http://www.wowhead.com/?items&filter=ub=3;cr=126:21;crs=3483:1;crv=0:10

Head, Chest and Head:  Get Legionnaire’s Studded Helm (it looks so ugly on me) with the quest Waste Not, Want Not.  Grab the second quest Laying Waste to the Unwanted and grab Scale Brand Breastplate.  The second head piece quest chain starts a bit away.  Wait until you grab the belt and leg piece before you start to head over there.  Start a two part chain In Search of Sedai finish it. Start and finish Makuru’s Vengeance.  Then start a 3 part chain that starts with Atonement. Finish the last part and grab Vindicator’s Chain Helm

Chest:  For the first mail chest grab Bonechewer Berserker’s Vest with Zeth’Gor Must Burn!  Then refer to the first part of this post on how to obtain Scale Brand Breastplate.  I’m not sure which one works better.  They are both bind on pick up so I’ll just grab them both and post the results.

Legs:  For Battle Scarred Leggings the quest starts at Mission: The Murketh and Shaadraz Gateways.  This is the first quest to a chain but you don’t have to finish it unless you want the experience.

Feet:  Boots of the Earthcaller

Waist:  For Heavy Miner’s Belt start a chain with the quest When This Mine’s a-Rockin’.  Finish the chain and grab the belt.

Necklace:  Wind Dancer’s Pendant get it with the quest Avruu’s Orb.  You need to kill Avruu to get the orb.

2H Axe:  Rage Reaver.  Get the it from the 2nd part of a chain with one of the first quests you’ll receive in Hellfire. 

2H Sword:  Helboar Carving Blade 

Trinkets:  Bladefist’s Breadth and Insignia of the Alliance.

Finger:  At level 70 come back here to grab this awesome ring Ring of the Recalcitrant. If you are lucky to find a group of 25 players to do a raid and get the drop required.  Grats!

Un'Goro Crater

Aye!

Q:  What’s good about being sick?

A:  Being able to play World of Warcraft for hours until you collapse on your chair.  Now that’s what I call a flu remedy.

List of quests in Un’Goro Crater that yield good Mail armor for Hunters:

  1. A Little Help From My Friends – Part of a chain but gives you Clayridge Helm.
  2. Beware of Pterrordax – Finish this quest and get Ghotslab Gloves.
  3. The Bait for Lar’korwi – Part of a chain but gives you Outrider Leggings.  I didn’t keep it cause I got Infernal Trickster Leggings from Maraudon.

I completed all the quests that I could pick up in Un’Goro Crater as a level 50 beast master hunter.  I would say most of them are pretty easy.  Your basic kill quests and collection quests.  The horde here aren’t always friendly so watch out.

The first Devilsaur that I encountered surprised me and killed me.  Ganked a whole bunch after that.  Sorry to anyone who was trying to come here and tame one.

Those Stone Guardians are really tough.  Haven’t killed one yet.  I would wait until they turn orange or yellow to you.  They are still red to me.

Quick Overview of Feralas.

Aye!

  1. Dawnrider’s Chestpiece see finding mail armor post.  This piece has been with me up until level 55 or so.  Good grab.  Go get it!
  2. Fun quests like shrinking giants and killing yetis for their hides.
  3. Egg quest – Find the egg, find the robot chicken, escort the chicken.  Nice robot chicken reward!  Wait… There are 2 more eggs to find.
  4. Decent drops.  Kill yetis.  I found some good leather armor drops.  Gave them away. =)

Next blog:  Moving on to The Hinterlands.

Aye!

Finding mail armor for your level 40 hunter is as difficult as finding pet skills at level 30.  I derived this plan from using the Armory, Wowhead, and Thottbot.  Let’s see if I will follow through.  This blog will be continually updated until all of my slots are full with mail gear.

To check my progress go to my armory spot.

Original plan.  | What actually happened.

 I originally wanted to go for a Skullsplitter Helm.  I tried to get it with guild mates but we kept on getting ganked.   Plus the Headhunters and Berserkers are hardly around.  Instead my buddies from my guild wanted to do the Razorfen Kraul instance and I ended up rolling on this Tusken Helm.  It’s awesome.

Tough Scorpid Shoulders:  Buy it on the AH or have a guild mate make it for me.  If no one has the pattern I’ll be in Tanaris farming Wastewander Scofflaw or Wastewander Assassins for it.  I bought it on the AH.

Dawnrider’s Chestpiece:  In Feralas on Feathermoon Island you must first complete this chain The Ruins of Solarsal.  Then start this quest line that begins with Against the Hatecrest (Quest) and finishes with Delivering the Relic (Delivery Quest) and you’ll get the armor as a reward.  This was intended to be the first armor I was going to go after but as soon as I got to Feathermoon Island, my guild mates wanted to run the Razorfen Kraul instance.  (see above)

I originally wanted to go for Myrmidon’s Bracers: Buy it on the AH.  Instead I ended up exploring STV trying to finish all of the quests I picked up there.  While following the eastern shoreline I found a message in a bottle which led me to Jaguero Isle.  Which BTW has a good hunter pet to pick up Prowl (Rank 3) if you are a high enough level to learn it.  Look for Jaguero Stalker.  I completed a quest to land me Poobah’s Nose RingYou kill a giant gorilla  to complete the quest.

Tough Scorpid Gloves:  Buy it on the AH or farm the pattern in Tanaris and ask a guild mate to make it.

Blackforge Girdle:  Buy it on the AH.  I did for 9 gold.

 I originally wanted to go for Blackforge LeggingsInstead I ended up getting Dual Reinforced Leggings which is a lot better in defense.  You get it for killing Mekgineer Thermaplugg in Gnomeregan for the quest The Grand Betrayal.  Earlier that same day we ran Razorfen Kraul we ended up running the Gnomeregan instance. It is easy with a few level 40s and a healer.  It’s lacking the bonus attributes but they can be made up for with good enchants on other equipment. Equipment that’s not bind on pick up.

I originally wanted Myrmidon’s Greaves: Buy it on the AH.  I ended up picking up Blackforge Greaves as a drop while fighting in Hinterlands.

I will buy and sell on the AH to make my gold (see my post about Obtaining gold for your mount).  I also plan to farm minerals like mithril in the Hinterlands.  I need mithril to make Hi-Impact Mithril Slugs and level engineering.

In reflection to BRK’s podcast and my own quest for mail armor at Level 40.  I’ll leave you with his wisdom and some of my own words.  BRK said, “Getting gear is fun.  Getting gear is not the ultimate goal of the game.”  Yes getting gear is fun.  It will be replaced in a few levels so don’t worry if you checked your armory, listed every upgrade for your current level, and derived a plan to obtain them all.  Yet didn’t obtain them.

Once I dinged to level 43, Tusken Helm got replace with Bloomsprout Headpiece for the first spot on my upgrade list on the armory.  To get that piece I would have to enter an instance in Desolace at around level 48.  Instances are fun.  But for five more levels my helmet is going to be Tusken Helm.  I also found out that mail armor at my current level does not provide the +Agility bonuses that I need as a hunter.  I might end up equipping a few leather gear here and there.  Oh well…

Til’ next time…
