    Guide to the Golden Lotus Faction Quests

    Spoiler Warning! This guide shares some details about the associated quest chain that takes you to the Vale of Eternal Blossoms and the Golden Lotus. If you'd prefer to naturally find your way there during your adventures, the first couple of bullets should be sufficient for pointing you in the right direction.

    Here is how you get into the Vale of Eternal Blossoms:

    Note: Taming Kalimdor is Horde only, and Taming Eastern Kingdoms is Alliance only. This was done via hotfix so the UI in-game will not update until 5.1, which is why you may see completion swap between the two. Not to worry though, the data is all there and will be resolved with the 5.1 patch. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Ink Trader Exchange Change
    Is there an answer for my question on whether it is a hotfix or a client patch?
    This is planned to go in as a hotfix. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Strong Pet Trap?
    We applied a hotfix to attempt to resolve issues of not properly receiving the upgraded Strong and Pristine traps. Please let us know if you're still having the issue, what character and realm is seeing the issue, and once you received the achievement, did your trap art, tooltip or icon change to reflect an upgraded trap?

    New Loot Window
    you can type /loot to see who needs/greed/passes
    I've done a few dungeons myself during this weekend and I've noticed that some players are simply unaware of this feature, sometimes I saw some people needing on offspec stuff because they weren't seeing any "need" rolls from other players, obviously this can lead to some arguing.

    So here it is again for the sake of clarity, please type /loot, /lootrolls or you can just click on [Loot] in the chat window.
    This will open a new loot window that shows you all rolls on every item.
    You can also go to Interface->Controls-> and click on “Auto Open Loot Rolls Window!” (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Daily Quests and Gearing for Raids
    You can get gear from heroic dungeons and in the process get 60 Valor for the first dungeon you do daily, as well as 30 Valor for the first scenario and a chance at getting loot usable by your class when finishing it. It may seem a small amount, but since both venues can be done relatively quickly, if you're aiming to cap valor points, it'll probably be the fastest way to do so (without considering raiding).

    If there are particular items (read: gear) you feel you need to get 100% from the factions in Mists of Pandaria, keep in mind that Raid Finder gear is not available yet, and neither the Heart of Fear and Terrace of Endless Spring raids.

    If even with these things taken into consideration you still feel that a particular item is required, then it might be a good idea to point it out on this thread

    Assume for a minute that, the player is casual (read: not alot of time to spend in game but capable), and is able to cap valor points in a given week, yet doesn't have the time to rep grind from doing the ridiculous number of dailies that are currently the main end game focus of mists until we are allowed into all raids and RF is active etc etc, with a total cap of 3k VP available per character. How then is this type of player supposed to get gear?
    Sounds like a rather edgy case, meaning, if a player is as casual as you described, it'd probably be best for that player to focus on cap his valor through dailies, so that he'll be grinding whichever reputations he wants to focus on at the same time. If he chooses instead to focus on doing heroics until he gets his gear, then after he's done with that part, he might focus on dailies.

    The problem is, this case is littered with too many "ifs". For this discussion it'd probably be much more useful to know what's exactly concerning you.

    Also, keep in mind that Pandaria isn't going to vanish into thin air. As long as you're progressing towards your goal, even if it takes you longer than more dedicated players, isn't that still advancing your character? Just curious. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Hidden Klaxxi Daily Quest
    WoWInsider has a nice note about a hidden Klaxxi Daily Quest that will net you an extra 130 reputation, along with the normal Valor Points and Lesser Charm.



    Minecraft: World of Warcraft
    The recreation of the World of Warcraft map inside of Minecraft is finally complete! You can download the map via this torrent (2GB, extracting to 24GB). Be sure to take a look at the installation instructions.

    If you don't have the time and bandwidth to do so, you can take a look at an older version of the map.

    There's actually another hidden daily when you're doing the dailies near the Heart of Fear. There's a big uniquely named Beetle (can't be bothered to find it right now) who drops a quest starting item.

    I imagine there's probably one for the sets in the Briny Muck and the southeast around the lake as well.

    In the Briny Muck is a large worm (the type around and the ones you see in Deepholm). I have yet to find one for the Lake of Stars series of quests.

    There are 3 different hidden Klaxxi daily quests: Kypa'rak's Core The Warlord's Ashes The Matriarch's Maw .
    Only one can be active though. It depends on the area where the dailies from this day are done.

    If they are so quick to add the stamina to the trinket, why couldnt they of just done it before the patch? now people have missed out on like 60k Gold just because they sold their trinket pre-hotfix.
    Why blizzard so stupid, they have to wait for people to complain, before they fix something any moron in their testing team should of seen? actually fuck testing team, the item designers should of realised what a mistake it was?!?.
    GG blizz.

    ilevel for LFR is already reduced to 460 according to the in game tool. No sense in still saying 463.

    "Hidden" Klaxxi Quest is old news. The linked article was poorly researched; on days that particular one isn't available there's 2 others -- There's a giant Kouchong Matriarch that you can kill up around the Heart of Fear when quests are around there, and when the quests are around Zan'Vess there's a big Kyparite Stone Wyrm roaming the Briny Muck that you can also kill for a daily quest item.

    Pretty much everyone on my server's figured this out. Y'think Joystiq could bother to spend 2 minutes in the General chat of Dread Wastes to figure this out?

  14. #14
    yeah there are three hidden klaxxi dailies... lol. they're all mobs that drop quest items and there is one up each day. the one thats up depends on which area the rest of the quests for that day is. the hidden daily is always in that area.

    Anybody with common sense could see the item was under valued for its ilvl and that's why many people were buying them up. Common sense makes a lot of people of gold while others lose out.

    Pretty sure only the first half of LFR is going to open tomorrow. I'm assuming it's the first 3 bosses, then next week they are unlocking the 2nd half.

    Ghost Iron Shield Spike was also hotfixed. It now has a chance to do 600-1000 damage on block.

    Recipie and Item tooltip not changed yet. Only the enchant tooltip (when you look at a shield that has one attached to it). Also confirmed via testing.

    I am very very very very angry. Why hotfix a shitty item WITHOUT WARNING. I've lost 13k++ in AH money.
