WoW Quest: Orik Trueheart and the Forgotten Shore

   Posted by: free-wow-guide   in WoW Quest Guide

Seek out the assistance of Orik Trueheart at Dawn’s Reach in Dragonblight.

Description

I have gazed upon the orb and seen the path that you must walk, <name>.

Many years ago an atrocity was committed upon the shores of Dragonblight. The act itself remains shrouded in darkness, but I am certain that your destiny lies south, amidst the ruins of the Forgotten Shore.

Take the road southeast through the ravaged town square. Follow the trail until you arrive at Dawn’s Reach. You will meet an old friend of mine there known as Orik Trueheart. He will be expecting you.

Do


Play to your strengths
The internet is a great place to complain about everything, and the shortcomings of the priest class are definitely a discussion that comes up frequently here. But whether you agree or disagree with me (or anyone) about how priests are now (or ever), you should always remember to play to your strengths. That means looking at your best spells (Power Word: Shield, Penance, Circle of Healing, Empowered Renew right now, for exampe) and finding ways to apply them to what you’re doing. If you’re a Renew-centric holy priest, for example, don’t try to convince your 10-man raid that you should be keeping up the tanks. Hit the raid up instead, and let the druid try her hand at single target heals. (Druids can do more than HoTs, contrary to popular belief. They’re exceptional healers, some of them just get grumpy about casting Nourish.)

Basically, what this comes down to is your ability to adapt, which is actually good advice to all healers. As this game changes and evolves, so will your strengths and weaknesses. As a priest, you will see many ups and downs and you should always be willing to try out new styles of healing to account for the shifts.

WoW Quest: One of a Kind

   Posted by: free-wow-guide   in WoW Quest Guide

Find and kill Bonesunder in or near the canyon northwest of the Azure Dragonshrine. Bring any evidence you find back to Aurastrasza at Wyrmrest Temple.

Description

Such a strange seal to see among magnataur… it suggests an unusual amount of organization.

Magnataur rarely put aside their aggressive natures to cooperate with each other. I suspect they have their eyes set on raiding a large settlement.

I very much doubt that this horn is unique, I need you to prove me wrong. In the canyon northwest of the Azure Dragonshrine you will find Bonesunder. Go challenge him and bring me back any evidence you find that might confirm my concerns.

Once there, command the dragon to destroy the Scourge scavengers that work to unearth Galakrond.

WoW Quest: Not In Our Mine

   Posted by: free-wow-guide   in WoW Quest Guide

Highlord Leoric Von Zeldig at Wintergarde Keep in Dragonblight wants you to recover 10 Wintergarde Miner’s Cards.

Description

That blasted necropolis blindsided us! In the wake of its destruction Wintergarde Mine was lost. Worse yet, Kel’Thuzad’s acolytes have raised the slain miners as Scourge and are using them to supply their siegesmiths with materials from our mine!

The supply line must be halted and our lost brothers must be put to rest.

Travel to Wintergarde Mine, northeast of here in the Carrion Fields, and destroy the risen miners. Return to me with their miner cards so that I may put their passing in our registry.

WoW Quest: No Place to Run

   Posted by: free-wow-guide   in WoW Quest Guide

Place a Destructive Ward at the end of the path leading out of Obsidian Dragonshrine, where the road starts to give way to snow. Protect the ward until it is fully charged, then return to Serinar.

Description

They’re drawing power from the bones of my dead brothers…

I have no love for the cult, but I’m baffled by their audacity. There will be no mercy shown for them… not that I ever would have anyway.

Ensure that they have no place to flee when the slaughter starts. Place a destructive ward at the end of the path leading out of the shrine… where the road starts to give way to snow. Defend it until it is fully charged.

However, there’s something even more basic that needs to be in place first– keybindings. No matter how fast a player is at clicking, it’s simply impossible have the same reaction times as a player who is using their keyboard to activate their abilities. In addition, having your spells bound to the keyboard will make your addons and macros even more potent, as you’ll be able to combine the two for the optimum healing setup.

Find a replacement action bar

The default Blizzard action bar sucks. That’s really all there is to it. It doesn’t support even the most basic features, and is so inflexible that it will undoubtedly hold you back. There’s a ton of action bar mods out there, and most of them are robust enough to perform the tasks we’re going to ask of them. I personally like Dominos, but I have several friends who prefer Bartender. Regardless of what addon you choose, it’s important that you familiarize yourself with it and customize it as you see fit. It’s important to play with a UI that works the way you do, so don’t feel constrained to copy someone else.

All signs point to patch 3.3.5 dropping very soon. When it drops, it will bring with it a few fun UI changes and quests, but most importantly, it will herald the final raid instance of this expansion, the last raid boss we’re going to get before Cataclysm erupts in a massive explosion of Goblins and Worgen and Tauren paladins and Wars of the Ancients and such. Soon after the patch hits, the portal to the Ruby Sanctum below Wyrmrest Temple will open, and the same heroes who ended to reign of the Lich King will enter and challenge the fearsome Black Dragonflight, led by The Twilight Destroyer, Halion.

And I want my fellow mages to be ready.

So fill your pockets with strudel, put on your best dress, and meet me at Wyrmrest, mages. We’ve got dragons to slay.

The Instance

Much like the Obsidian Sanctum before it, the Ruby version is a short, one-boss affair, though you do need to best Halion’s three lieutenants prior to facing off with that final loot pinata. These three function as minibosses who drop no loot, but will be worth an Emblem of Frost. There’s no option to bypass these sub-bosses this time around, no 3-drakes-up mechanic. You will need to clear them prior to challenging Halion.
