Welcome to part 2 of 3 in my tried and tested Week of epic mount money making!
In the last Installment we earned ourselves 650g (730 if Alchemy lab is open on your realm)
If you have done part one, you should be in Shattrath with the following daily quests:
Remember, in your travels hit every herb / mine you can until you complete Gaining the Advantage. Skinners, fear not, I have a plan for you guys!
1.) Fly out to Netherstorm’s Area 52. Once there head down to Manaforge B’naar and kill every Sunfury Blood elf you loot the Sunfury Attack Plans. (If grouped, this will drop for all in the party off the same mob)
10g 10s – Obtained in Shattrath and Completed in Netherstorm (Hand in at Shattrath)
7 days = 70g 70s (running total)805.21 (721g 28s without Alchemy Lab phase in QD)
2.) Go back to Area 52, and fly to Evergrove; BEM. Once there fly to Bash’ir’s Landing. Kill humanoids until you or a groupie loots the Phasing Device. It’s not a Universal drop, but only one party member needs to activate it, it precedes through death. Now start looting mana cells (pink sparkling cubes) until you complete the quest AND you have killed enough mana wyrms to get a Primal Mana.
10g 10s + 20g Primal Mana(based on Wowhead’s buy out price)
7 days = 70g 70s + 140g = 210g 70s (running total)1015g 91s (931g 98s without Alchemy Lab phase in QD)
3.) Go back to Evergrove and fly to your faction’s flight point in Nagraand
3b.) If you are not a Skinner, Ignore this, I want you to follow the green arrow and kill Clefthoofs until you’ve skinned 8 mana residue. I would get atleast 2 Clefthoof leathers, which will help you reach your goal.
Head to Oshu’gun and when you land put on your Goggles Once you put these on you can travel around the mountain and right click the goggles near a little ring of fire 6 times to complete the quest. Note: Don’t put the goggles on before you get in the zone, because me and others found the quest objective don’t show up if you do so.
The Multiphase Survey
9g 10s – Obtained in Shattrath, Completed in Nagraand (Hand in at Shattrath)
7 days = 63g 70s (running total)1079g 61s (995g 68s without Alchemy Lab phase in QD)
4. Head back to your flight point and then fly to Shattrath. At this point be sure you are still good on bag space, if not feel free to turn in what you have already. Once you are ready to go, mount up on your wings and head to 31,84ish on the Terrokar/Hellfire border.
Once you land you/your party need to kill flayers until you loot a Razorthorn Flayer Gland. These have odd drop rates, but generally speaking aren’t that bad. Once you have one, find a Ravager that is not bugged (you can agro one if need be). Target the mob then right click the gland to get control of the animal. Hunters will be in their element here, as they can still pop BW and heal the pet as if it was their own, though oddly enough Kill Command doesn’t seem to work. Basically you will have a pet bar that will allow you to control the beast. Search for little mounds on the ground and then click on the “Root” on your pet bar. This little fella will fight for you and you can heal it as a healer, or hunter, but if you don’t have a heal button be very aware of your surroundings and bandage the little guy between mobs. This little critter will dig the mound until you see a gear icon, then you right click the root to loot it. Only one person in your party needs a ravager, they can uncover mounds for everyone in the party, but each root can only be looted by one person at a time. Once done, simply take off and leave your ravager on the ground.
9g 10s (13g88s if Alchemy Lab is active) – Obtained in Quel’Danas, Completed in Terokar/Hellfire (Hand in at QD)
7 days = 63g 70s (97g 16s if Alc lab is open) (running total)1167g 77s (1059g 38s without Alchemy Lab phase in QD)
5. Once done, Fly to the Throne of Kil’Jeadon (Alliance) or Falcon Watch FP -> Thrallmar FP -> Throne of Kil’Jaedon (Horde). Once here you need to head to the North West end of the area to pick up the following 2 quests:
Once you have these quests go ahead and activate the Sizzling Embers in your bag. Once you do so a little fireball will follow you around. (If you use your flying mount, he will stay with you, providing you stay in the throne area) Walk around and kill the fire elementals until the fireball glows green AND you have 1 Primal Fire(drop rates here seem very good) Also kill 4 Wrath Heralds and loot their blood (100% drop rate). Once you have your bloods look for Felblood Initiates. Target them and get in range of one, click the Fel Siphon. Let this channel all the way down until you attack the NPC, which if done correctly, will transform into an Emaciated Felblood. Once you have completed this, head back to the quest NPC and walk through the demon gate with your fireball and wait for the explosion and quest complete message to display. Note: If you die at any point before completing Blast the Gateway, your fireball will vanish and you have to go through that quest all again. Turn the quests into the same NPC that issued them.
11g 99s + 10g 10s + 25g (Primal Fire, Wowhead’s Buyout) = 47g 09s – Obtained and Completed in Hellfire.
7 days = 329g 63s(running total)1497g 40s (1389g 01s without Alchemy Lab phase in QD)
6. Now head to your faction’s flight path and head to Shadowmoon. Fly to your Scryer or Aldor outpost.
Once there follow my map lines and land on the area of the temple where you see 4 elite mobs channeling (they will not agro on sight) Now face west and start killing the fel orcs on the stairs. Once those 4 are dead pull mobs on the lower level, but try to line of sight them up the steps, be very careful not to agro the elite patrolling mob, if you are in a group by all means kill it if you like, it’ll will make the quest somewhat easier. Carry on killing fell orcs until you have your 5 Ata’mal Armaments. Once complete, I am going to assume your hearthstone is in Shattrath, if so hit it.
By now I expect you to have completed the gathering quest, hand it and all other quests that you get from Shattrath.
Gaining the Advantage
16g 39s – Obtained/Handed in at Shattrath.
7 days = 114g 73s(running total)1612g 13s (1503g 74s without Alchemy Lab phase in QD)
Then go back to the Island of Quel’Danas and head to the NPC that issued the quest. Right click the armaments in your bags until you complete the quest, and hand in. Also hand in the root quest.
18g 28s – Obtained/Handed in at Quel’Danas, Completed in Shadowmoon/Quel’Danas
7 days = 127g 96s(running total)1740g 09s (1631g 27s without Alchemy Lab phase in QD)
That puts us at about 31% – 33% of our 5200g total just by questing.
At this point I would like to again state that there are other daily quests out there, and if you wish to do so, please do them, I just didn’t do them because this route was the most time effective (both satellites took me about 2 hours to do, total). I did also do the Fishing and Cooking daily quests, and highly recommend you do the same, if you have the skill to do them. I was lucky and got an Eye of the Sea which I sold for 275g for a quick sale, but wowhead values it at 350g. Do not despair if you don’t get this, as this guide will still cater to you.
Come back for the most difficult and boring part of my guide.
