A quick and dirty guide to Shattered Sun Dailies
I’ve been having a great time with the new daily quests. They are not tough at all, but they are new and fast and there is good variety. And they fit together really well.
For example, once you get to the island you get all the quests. The first two to do are the flying quests. Thanks to the hot fixes, bombing the dead scar is dead easy now. Once you know what to target, you can do it in one run without any trouble. Land and take off again and now you are stopping the reinforcements by firebombing their ships. This takes like 10 seconds but killing the 6 reinforcements can take a little longer if there is competition on the ship you land on. Don’t be shy about swimming to another ship that has less of a crowd for the 6 kills.
Once you are back, run ten seconds inland and you’ll start seeing the wretched. Kill them until you get your four mana remnants from the horrid little junkies. Of course, if you are a blood elf you are two steps away frpom being a magic junkie yourself so take this as an object lesson in the dangers of magic addiction. Fall to far and you too will be fodder for other people to kill and loot. Happily in this same area you can also destroy the erratic sentries and ‘fix’ them. Convenient, that. While here you’ll also be taking a ley line reading from the crystal in the big building in the lower area. And if you kill a few blood elves that count toward Taking the Harbor, so much the better.
Go north a little and you find demons to kill. The respawn rate is scary, I’ve literally stood in one spot and killed a demon as it kept respawning over and over. The Emissary of Hate you need to stick a banner in also just happens to come out of the portal you take a ley line reading from. Wow, that was easy.
Finish Taking of the Harbor, this can be tricky when there is alot of competition. And I’ve noticed as a warlock I have to use Shadowburn alot to avoid kill stealing when I tag a mob and someone else decides they want it a second later. Head east to kill Darkscale Myrmidons for their keys. The keys open chests. The chests give you ore. Take a slight detour to the shrine in the water and you just completed the ley line quest as well.
Yay, you’ve just done your part for the Shatter Sun Offensive!
