MMO-Champion - Patch 4.2 Firelands Daily Quests/Marks of the World Trees Rewards, MMO Report, Comics
Patch 4.2 - Firelands Daily Quests / Mark of the World Tree Rewards
In my previous post I listed the updated Valor Points Rewards, today we'll take a look at what we can get from the daily quests area of the Firelands. The vendors can be accessed after completing the very long questlines in the Molten Front, see the Mark of the World Tree article on Wowpedia (the new daily quests currency, just like the Champion's Seals of the Argent Tournament.

Basically, after unlocking all phases of the Firelands Dailies you will eventually gain access to 3 NPCs. You will need 125 more Marks of the World Tree to unlock each NPC and finally gain access to his/her inventory!


  • Filling the Moonwell - Secure sacred water for the moonwell from Matoclaw at the Sanctuary of Malorne in Mount Hyjal. (Obtain 125 Marks of the World Tree.)
  • Calling the Ancients - Secure the aid of the Ancients from Elderlimb at the Sanctuary of Malorne in Mount Hyjal. (Obtain 125 Marks of the World Tree.)
  • Additional Armaments - Seek out Matoclaw at the Sanctuary of Malorne in Mount Hyjal. (Obtain 125 Marks of the World Tree.)

The good news is that after you've unlocked the quests, you won't need marks anymore and items sold from the merchants are paid with gold. (Thanks to ChaosStorm for his forum post)

    Another thing is, do these npcs require 125 marks each or 125 together, cause with the quality of rewards, dont think its even worth the time for this if its 375 you need in total.

    125 each.

    In total its 695 as you need to collect 300 for the shadow wardens and Druids of talon and 20 at the start.

    When you complete them all you get the flaming hippogryph. I need 16 on ptr for it

    Blizzard would never give BIS, or even top iLevel items from daily quests. These are items that are meant for progression for players who are not raiding. It´s kinda like the reverse argument when you see people saying ´why do casuals need tier items if they aren´t raiding´.. the answer here is ´why do raiders think they can get BIS raid items from questing´.

    These are items that will be used to augment the new VP gear and to give none raiders further gear progression. Remember, most players do not raid... this is their progrssion.
    Well, as far as doing normal raids count as raiding, these items are not justified to be as is whatsoever.

    Surely I'm butthurt at a disc MS holy OS priest seeing the ilvl365 items without a single point of spirit. Just like when I saw the lame tailoring epic legs without spirit either. Ye I know, reforge, still not remotely the same.

    However, are you suggesting that casuals don't need spirit or hit? Guess that shouldn't be that way... then again, I have to grind all these dailies for some mounts vanity pets or recipes etc etc? Awesome motivation right there.

    Imo, these items should be well itemized, with stats between somewhere under the tier 12 items - a good boost for the early raids.

    You need to earn 695 marks in total, which if I calculate correctly will take you somewhere between 48 and 56 days. Nice two months of grinding

    This depends on the combo of dailies you get each day. They arent always the same and some give 2 and some only give one.

    I have earned 679 marks since PTR starting (i.e. 16 left from getting mount) and have completed 377 dailies.

    Souds "awe-inspiring". It's only probably really worth to do the grind till all BS recipes on a BS char. There is some profit in these weapons. Otherwise it's a timesink for the sake of timesink.
    I mean when it is even remotely entertaining to do any dailies more than 2-3 times???

    They're actually fun and as I've said a few times now you get a mount at the end of it.

    Giving you a mount for 60* days of grinding the same quests is not really an adequate reward, or well it's accepted in WoW for whatever reason. After having 120+ mounts already I could't give a shit about one additional mount for which I have to endure repeating quests.

    If the quests would be different it's a different story, which could be easily done, but instead of questing for one week i.e. 7 or 14 days of fresh quests each day, they decided people should die a little each of those 60* days doing the same quests over and over.

    I'll do them, but asap as I unlock everything this shit daily zone wont see me again like with all the previous daily zones and daily quests in general. I do not know if non-raiders enjoy the game by doing the same quests over and over for a year or two, but I guess they don't so forcing everyone in a 60* day long grind is kinda missed.

    No, they do not require hit, or even the spirit beyond what they can get from other pieces or can reforge these pieces to. Remember, their mana pools will be going up drastically with this gear, as will their crit, which makes healing more efficient. There is also that big change coming where heal crits are at 200% now. I think you are applying rules for progressive raiding that do not apply to the people this gear is intended for. We will be getting this gear many weeks after 4.2 hits, which means most players will have a few pieces of 378 bought with VP, will probably have every piece of 359 bought with JP.... that type if ilvl will put you absurdly over the gear needed to heal troll heroics and T11. My main healer is also Disc, and I fully expect to be doing mostly smite-healing in the troll heroics, similar to what I am doing now in the normal heroics when I go for satchels.

    There are some things noticed after the moonwell completed:

    1. There are some fruits useful near the moonwell and they won't consumed. http://ptr.wowhead.com/item=70927

    2. The daily quest "The Protectors of Hyjal" http://ptr.wowhead.com/quest=29128 will gone. That means you will lose 2marks per day.
    I don't sure if it's a bug or not.

    Begs the question of what the hell you're doing still playing the game or caring about anything outside of raids or pvp if you hate quests/dailies so much.

    He probably only cares about raiding and there is very little for raiders this patch compared to the casuals.

    ilevel 365? HAHAAHAH

    so basically anyone who has raided or done arena has no need for these items already.

    anyone who hasn't can get equivalent items in a week of farming heroics, faster than farming gated dailies for a month rofl rofl rofl

    blizzard are so dumb it's ridiculous sometimes

    by the way this place is gank city on the PTR pity no one will go there on live except for badly geared noobs and far better geared world pvp starved arena players who will camp the living daylights out of them

    Yup you're completely correct.
    Blizzard still has time to tune down the collection rates of the Marks so that this grind will take 4 months.

    That's how Blizzard works.

    Hear that sound?
    That's the sound of $30 (assuming people are 'diligent' and don't skip quests/days) going into the bank - paid to Blizzard for something which, in the end, players can't stand to do anymore.

    I'm actually curious how in the hell the suits who came up with this brilliant master-plan couldn't see how much this is probably going to backfire on them (most people I know never touched TB after they got their rep, and it's be the dame here). Taking 2 months + to grind something out is NOT the issue - it's the cheap repetitive mindless of it. At least, it's hard for me to imagine that even WoW's general population gets a thrill out of the daily repeat system.
