Firelands – Patch 4.2

I recently read The Fireland’s FAQ on the WOW Insider Blog and thought it was a great piece of writing by Mathew McCurley.  For those that would like aheads up, you can go to the link or read it here –

What’s going to happen to my valor points?

All valor points will be converted into justice points. The justice point cap, however, remains at 4,000 points. So you’ll be give justice points up to the cap. If you have any valor points left over, they will be converted into currency at a rate of 47 silver per point.

Let’s say you have 3,000 justice points and 1,100 valor points. Since you cannot get over 4,000 justice points, 1,000 of your valor points will be turned into justice points, and 100 will be turned into 47 silver per point.

Do I need to be attuned to the new raid instance?

No. The Firelands is immediately accessible by heading to the Sulfuron Spire in Hyjal. Grab nine or 24 of your bestest friends and head in to punch new bosses in their loot bags.

Where do I go to start the new daily quests?

The new daily quests that open up the Regrowth and the Molten Front are available at the Shrine of Malorne in the southwest portion of Hyjal.

What quest do I have to complete to open up the new dailies in Hyjal?

In order to access these new quests, you will need to have completed up to and including the quest Aessina’s Miracle, in which the ancient Aessina quenches the fires consuming the western forests of Hyjal. After you complete this quest, you should be able to access the new content at the Sanctuary of Malorne.

There’re only like 4 or 5 quests at the new hub! How do I get more?

You start at the Sanctuary of Malorne and have a few quests a day until you get 20 Marks of the World Tree, the new personal currency you accumulate by completing these new dailies. After 20 of them, which is a few days of dailies, you head into the Firelands and the Molten Front proper. Keep doing dailies for more Marks of the World Tree.

How do I get started on the legendary quest chain?

Players must first kill a Molten Lord inside of the Firelands or have completed any one of the achievements for the previous raid tier (clear Bastion of Twilight, Throne of the Four Winds, or Blackwing Descent) to open up the beginning quest for Dragonwrath, which sends you back to your capital city and onward to the Bronze Dragonflight.

Are there any new factions to gain rep with?

Raiders will be able to gain reputation with the Avengers of Hyjal. Reputation will be capped out early with trash kills in the instance, so many boss kills will likely be needed to reach exalted with the faction.

What are crystallized firestones, and why are people so excited about them?

Crystallized firestones
 are items that drop from heroic mode bosses in the Firelands and allow you to create heroic versions of items that never had heroic equivalents. For instance, items you purchase from the valor points vendors now have a heroic version that you can purchase with the regular item plus a firestone. This is great for relics, tanking guns, and other slot items that have trouble being put on loot lists because of their relatively class-specific nature.

Has the amount of hit rating gone up for bosses?

No. Blizzard originally was tossing around the idea to increase the hit rating needed to hit cap on the new bosses, but this is not the tier that that is happening. Perhaps next tier. Right now, hit ratings are staying the same.

What’s the deal with all the hunter “taming challenges”?

Patch 4.2 is introducing 10 new pets for hunters to tame, including lava spiders, an obsidian cat, a metallic crab, a ghost owl, and more. Each potential tame has a gimmick or vulnerability that must be exploited before the hunter can tame the beast. These new unique taming challenges are scattered around the Regrowth and the Molten Front daily questing hubs.

Any 5-man content?

There are no new 5-man dungeons coming with patch 4.2. You can still get valor points from doing your seven weekly random Zandalari and heroic dungeons.

Does the new arena season start tomorrow?

No. The new arena and PVP season begins usually one week after the current season ends. After Season 9 ends, the numbers will be crunched and rewards will be given out, including titles and drakes, to the winners of the PVP season. This usually takes about a week. Once that is all done, PVP Season 10 will start up.

What do you like the most about playing WOW?

The social aspect – I love having a few drinks and mucking about on vent with my awesome guild whilst raiding on a Saturday night 🙂

What do you dislike the most about playing WOW?

PUGs. I hate PUGs. Specifically, getting abused by fail PUGs because they did something stupid and I let the group wipe. Apparently its always the healers fault!

Out of all of Azeroth what is your favourite place and why?

Uldum. I’m obsessed with anything remotely Ancient Egyptian!

If you could change one thing about WOW, what would it be?

Longer time-delay penalty for PUG’s who leave groups after one wipe. (I know Blizz could track that somehow!) Patience is a virtue, people!

Any last words?

Be nice to your healer.  It is unwise to piss off the person who holds your repair bill in her hands.
