WotLK Northrend Daily Quests & Profession Token System
As many of you may have expected there are going to be a host of new daily quests in Northrend once wrath of the lich king releases. Just like with the burning crusade’s daily quests these will have a variety of awards, including:
- New Token System
Daily Quests Token System for Professions
Now before we get into all these new daily quests let’s talk about the new token system. In order to really do anything with your professions up to this point you had to.
- Grind reputation to buy patterns
- Farm / purchase very rare patterns
- Join a raiding guild and be fortunate enough to be given rare patterns
These were really the only ways you could get any long duration use out of your profession, but blizzard is chaging this random success factor quite a bit. In the expansion many professions will have daily quests associated with them, these daily quests will award you a specific token for that professions. These tokens may then be turned in for various patterns, formulas, schematics, etc.
Profession Daily Quests
A few of these new profession daily quests have already been revealed.
Cooking Daily Quests
Once you train grand master cooking you’ll get a set of base line cooking recipes, these recipes use a variety of fish and meat that you’ll get in Northrend. In addition to these baseline recipes you also have the option of acquiring the upgraded versions of these recipes.
You can get these improved cooking recipes by completing the cooking daily quest, which will award you 1 Dalaran Cooking Award. You can turn in 3 of these to get 1 new recipe.
Jewelcrafting Daily Quests
- 1 Token = Uncut Jewelcrafter’s BoP Gem
- 2 Tokens = Low Level Designs
- 5 Tokens = High Level Designs
- 8 Tokens = Meta Designs
I really think this is a great change, it will create a very interesting dynamic as far as supply and demand are concerned with designs amongst jewelcrafters. I’m very interested to see how this system is adapted for the remainder of the professions, but overall I feel it’s a great and welcome change.
Other Daily Quests
Quite honestly, none of the other daily quests were really all that exciting. So far only a handful of the new Northren dailies have been implemented. Most of which are designed around the time honored formula of collecting X of some item or killing X of what ever mob, you know the drill. That said, the group of daily quests located around Venture Bay in the Grizzly Hills does look pretty awesome.
There are 4 total daily quests here, of which include objectives such as…
- Slaying Goblins
- Killing player’s the opposing faction
- Taking down the opposing faction’s captain
Ideally this area will become the location of some really good world PvP. Genreally when there’s gold + pvp glory in the same area it’s going to be good times for all. On top of the 15g you get for every quest here you also receive 10 venture coins for every quest. These coins be turned in for various PvP’ish items, check out the full list of venture coin item rewards here.
