The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Firelands reputation rewards


Every week, WoW Insider brings you [hide]The Care and Feeding of Warriors[/hide], the column dedicated to [hide]arms[/hide], [hide]fury[/hide] and [hide]protection warriors[/hide]. Despite repeated blows to the head from dragons, demons, Old Gods and whatever that thing over there was, Matthew Rossi will be your host.

[hide]Patch 4.2[/hide] is still here. And we’re all rolling through the Firelands, some of us already on heroic modes, some of us still clearing some bosses, others working on the dailies. Something for everyone. Today, we’re going to talk about the loot you can get out of the Firelands without actually getting a single drop from a boss. Some of these rewards require you to kill trash for rep (or even bosses, in the case of Avengers of Hyjal rewards past honored), but others you can get through Marks of the World Tree or even from the Thrall quest line added in patch 4.2.

Before we talk about all that, though, I have to say that if you’re able to raid Firelands, even on a limited schedule, you really should. These are some of the best-designed, most well thought-out boss encounters I’ve seen in years of playing the game. Trash runs are absolutely puggable (and the trash drops are worth pugging for, [hide]as last week covered[/hide]); a coordinated group in 359 epics from tier 11 raids absolutely can do the first four bosses and can probably learn to do Baleroc in a week or two. There’s no reason to avoid this raid. It’s fun, well-designed, and within your grasp. Of the five bosses I’ve now seen, none of them is so easy as to be boring nor so hard as to be daunting.

Now, let’s talk about gear you can get before or just after setting foot in here.[hide]Continue reading The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Firelands reputation rewards[/hide]Filed under: [hide]Warrior[/hide], [hide]Raiding[/hide], [hide](Warrior) The Care and Feeding of Warriors[/hide], [hide]Cataclysm[/hide][hide]The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Firelands reputation rewards[/hide] originally appeared on [hide]WoW Insider[/hide] on Sat, 09 Jul 2011 18:00:00 EST.
