Treasure Trove Scenario

The Treasure Trove scenario – a solo experience aimed at enabling you to pic up a whole host of goodies.

Quick Info

  • Kill rares on the Isle of Thunder (list and map) to get a Key to the Palace of Lei Shen
  • Hand the key in to Taoshi in the cave at 51,46 to gain access
  • Loot chests to have a chance at things like Elder Charms, Rep tokens and Burial Trove Keys (for extra chests at the end)

As far as we’re concerned, this scenario is good for two things: getting as much gold and charms as possible, or for getting to the last room to loot the golden treasure chests.

1. Final Room run

Pros: hi-tailing it to the final room and killing the  boss there gets you access to 3 special chests which contain a chance at better loot.

Cons: there’s only a chance at the better loot – it doesn’t always pay off. You also miss out on loads of chests which contain the goodies along the way. However, if you get there quick, you can always double back and loot some in the time you have remaining.

Extras used: Potion of Light Steps (1 Elder Charm, requires Friendly with Kirin Tor Offensive), 3 Polymorphic Keys (3 charms each, requires Exalted with Kirin Tor Offensive).

Our view: It’s not worth it, we prefer the gold and rep tokens (on our mains) or the charms (on our alts). However, we’ve put together a video for you to see the route and where I used the potions and keys.

2. Loot run

Pros: lots of goodies

Cons: we never have enough time to get to the final boss and/or get caught by the traps a lot causing me to slow down

Extras used: none

Our view: Go for it! We tend to circle around the room looting every chest possible using speed boosts. We’ve uploaded a video – mistakes and all – to show how much we got and the loot.

We average:

  • 10-15 Elder Charms (17 on this one)
  • 1-3 Burial Trove keys (2 on this one)
  • 15-20 Tattered Parchments for rep
  • 1 or 2 Ritual Stones
  • 200-300g

20 Days of WoW – Day 13

Day 13 – People (players/bloggers) that you admire

I’m sure this is very similar to Day 10, so I’m going to talk about those players who I admire.

There are none in particular, but instead I’m dedicating this post to all those raiders in the progress race. It has been really exciting this patch, especially because it has lasted so long. I get tired raiding for just a couple of hours once a week, and I can’t imagine how they must be feeling after 5 weeks.

This is one video which we both enjoyed watching… see how they laugh and joke until they get close to the kill?

We only play for fun, but I imagine if we were under so much pressure: to get geared, to hit the top DPS, to not make mistakes, then I think it would become a chore. I know raiding isn’t for everyone, but I think we can all admire their dedication to the game!

All-time favourite instance?

Mr B: Hands down, Blackrock Depths.

Here’s why:

  • Epic underground sprawling city – I mean, look at it!!
  • Rescuing dwarf princesses only for her to not want to go, what a tease!
  • Remember it in Vanilla? It takes ages to complete even now. You have to immerse yourself in it completely.
  • Starting a bar fight, it appeals to my manly side *flexes muscles*
  • Remember the ‘Barman Shanker’? Best dagger. Ever.

I loved it so much, I recorded myself and two other rogues running it. Have a watch:
