[Cataclysm] Staff quest chain
Ok so I know theres likely plenty of sites that detail this (but I also bet websense will block them)
well now that I have finally started on the quest chain (ie actually have some embers and a weekly FL25 group that will give me all the embers till I have 25, and then whatever is next if the person ahead of me isn't still on it)
so can someone lay out the quest chain? and approximate the amount of the item each boss in Fl25 is likely to drop?
also I somehow became the DE'er with no requirement to distribute the crystals. (as most didn't want most gear i got alot.)
Here's enough of a list to give you an idea of what it will take.
• A Legendary Engagement - Pick up the quest from a capital.
• A Wrinkle in Time - Talk to Anachronos
• All-Seeing Eye - Collect 25xEternal Ember (drops from bosses) and 3x Sands of Time (vendor)
• On a Wing and a Prayer - Go to Coldarra
• Through a Glass, Darkly - RP inside Nexus
• Actionable Intelligence - Go talk to Kalecgos
• Delegation - Go to Firelands and pick up Branch of Nordrassil. This drops of a named "boss" named Volcanus the Firelord, youll need a full raid to do the encounter. To get to him, kill bosses in FL and collect stuff from them while doing it.
• Nordrassil's Bough - Give the bough to Kalecgos in Coldarra now. At this point, you probably receive the first stage of this staff, Branch of Nordrassil.
• Emergency Extraction - Go to Coldarra with Kalec, RP ensues, probably a cutscene
• At One - Tarecgosa wipes and Kalecgos does some inserting action (HoN Empath anyone?)
• Time Grows Short - Collect 1000xSeething Cinder* from Firelands (aka Shadowfrost shards). You get around 50 from 25man bosses and around 20 from 10man.
• Alignment - Some more blue dwagon RP in coldarra - cutscenes galore again probably. Kalecgos becomes the new aspect.At this point, you receive the second stage of this staff, Runestaff of Nordrassil
• Heart of Flame - Go kill Ragnaros (normal/heroic, both work. You get extra debuff in the fight) and loot Heart of Flame. In addition, you must FIRST leech 250 Smouldering Essences from bosses in Firelands. On 25man, heroic bosses drop ~17-18 of them. Half of that on normal. Assuming less on 10man.
• The Stuff of Legends - Dragon RP in capital + you receive your staff! Huzzah! Also, whole guild receives the minipet available for purchase.
