Can anyone thats spent time on the test realms give us any details on the new level 52-druid specific quest mentioned in the patch notes? I'm hungry for details!

03-12-2006, 07:05 PM
I saw something in the Test forum the other day... rewards for it were a choice between a restoration type BP, a feral type BP, and a balance type 2H staff. I guess they were decent for level 52 items, but nothing really impressive for level 60.

Will see if I can find the link.

Here we go:

Do you think that, for the sake of those of us shackled behind firewalls in cubicles you could post the rewards on TDG?

Thanks! :)

ImageShack work there? This is copied from the thread:

I really like that staff, if it had a lil armor on it it 'd be perfect for me, but I just bought a staff I use for casting, so I'll probably take the healing chest.

Those are some nice items...will take some real thinking about.

Thanks Yrys. Those look nice. I want that staff.

Stats look like a combo of the rod of the ogre magi and Quel'dori channeling rod.

Except it has no stats just effects.

Where does the quest start?

03-28-2006, 12:01 PM
For some reason I remember hearing it starts in Un'goro

the quest officially begins in darnassus from mr bearwalker. he sends u to the tauren just on the inside of ungoro down the path. speak with him and he'll give u a quest to kill stuff in ungoro and tanaris. thats as far as i got last night since it was already like 2 AM and i needed to sleep :/

i'll post new info when i come across it.

You then need to collect some items for the Tauren. You need to get 8 mushrooms from the blood pedal sprouts, this was pretty easy. Then you ned to get 8 stingers from Wasps at the south side of the crater. There aren't many wasps and the respawn isn't very good either. The drop rate also could beb better. It ook a long time to just get 8 stingers. Once you turn in the mushrooms and the stingers, you then get a toxin that you must test on a Devilsaur. You just walk up to him and stick him with it. Then run like heck.
After you turn in that quest you get a quest to retrieve a Putrid Vine from the guardian at the bottom of the Sunken Temple. Then you can choose a druid item for your reward.

Where is this the guardian at the bottom of the Sunken Temple??

04-04-2006, 04:52 PM
Well, you have to summon him first.

To do :
- Kill 6 troll mini bosses
- Click 6 statues in proper order
- Summons boss at bottom
- Kill & enjoy

Actually, you can go even easier with the devilsaur:

Hibernate, stab, then run :)

I did this quest line with a lvl60 druid from our guild and a druid passing by on the same quest. We first did the stings which took very long to find because we all needed them...

They already had the mushrooms so that 3rd guy went away giving in his quest and already went to ST and waited for us there. While I was on the look for the sprouts my guild m8 noticed a devilsaur passing by and hibernated it all the way until I found all the sprouts, gave my quest in and went back to him!! That had to about 10 mins lol :) The stabbing part was easy then, we finally killed the poor bastard... Then we three did the last part in ST. I took the Grizzled Pelt ( for my feral setup, it's better then the Warbear Harness ( And I finished another quest there in ST btw by quickly opening the altar in the middle :)

Oh and a tip for when you guys are doing that boss in ST, go hide below the balkony (left of the stairs when you look down on it from above just if you were going to walk down), wait until he walks almost up the stairs or at least close to (and of course away from the other elites that is), then pull him and stay below the balkony and attack him, when he blasts you away you won't go far because of the balkony :)

I didn't have issues with him doing any blast moves, but the group I was in 2 rogues, 2 druids and a warrior ( who couldn't hold aggro to save himself let alone the group ) took he down REALLY quickly.

We pulled the trash mobs that were down there first, then battled the boss. I tanked, the rogues did their thing, and that was that. We had 3 deaths the whole run. The warrior, me and the other druid. I died at the sleeping dragon ( don't remember the name ) when I went to healer/caster to keep the warrior alive and thinking back on it I should have just stayed tank and held aggro. Oh well, another time.

me and 3 other druids, 2 of which were 60 and one was 53 cleared all the bosses minus Hakkar in about an hour. This is a really fun way to do this zone, basically an all druid stealth group. Worked well!
