For a small zone, it’s quite impressive to see so many points of interest for anyone passing through the area. In fact, it’s the breadcrumb quest which leads you from the Valley of Four Winds and into Kun-Lai Summit, particularly if you’re 87.
Apart from a couple of local quests, you’ll find the current location of Wrathion in this expansion as well as the Terrace of Endless Spring raid. For a couple of XP boosts, don’t forget to loot the Forgotten Lockbox on the second floor of the Tavern in the Mists and the The Hammer of Folly – part of the Riches of Pandaria achievement.
Behind the inn, you’ll see a number of familiar faces, including some of the combatants you encounter at the Temple of the White Tiger.
Then if you head under the Inn, you’ll find an interesting NPC who is not without some perks of his own.
But if you’re a fan of the BMAH, you might even run into a rare named Willy Wilder – a play on Willy Wonka and Gene Wilder which fans of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will instantly recognise. Not surprising when his abilities are Violets and Blueberries and Stuffed. He appears to spawn just outside the BMAH only to walk inside to bid on a Blood-Soaked Invitation which he then wins.
Excitedly, he then runs outside saying:
YES! Finally! I won a Brawler’s Guild invite! Nobody can stop me now!
I won a Brawler’s Guild invitation just now! I’ll surely be rank 8 by tonight! I sure hope I don’t lose my ticket before I get there.
Everyone look! I won a Brawler’s Guild invite! I can’t wait to try it out!
…so it’s not surprising that he is guaranteed to drop a Blood-Soaked Invitation when killed.
I guess I wasn’t ready to be a brawler.
Apparently, if you choose not to kill him, he runs all the way down the Path of a Hundred Steps and promptly despawns at the bottom.
Question of the Day: What is the craziest/most expensive thing you’ve bought from the BMAH to date?
There are eleven new rares on the Isle of Thunder but only ten are needed for Champions of Lei Shen. They can all drop a Shan’ze Ritual Stone and a the Key to the Palace of Lei Shen (which are lootable once a week) as well as the Sealed Tome of the Lost Legion for warlocks – lootable by the first warlock to pick it up. However, each rare is guaranteed to drop a Tome of Valor making it that much easier to be capped for the week.
Nalak will be available once all the stages are complete.
Once upon a time, Hammerspine used to be a level 12 rare trogg located in Gol’Bolar Quarry Mine in Dun Morogh. He is said to be on a 1.5-2.5 hour respawn timer.
The first time I remember killing him with the shot above, I just happened to catch him saying his infamous phrase. Looking back at all my rare shots, this has got to be one of my more interesting ones.
On a trip to see my old nemesis Gibblewilt, I decided to see if I could get another shot with my main. It didn’t take long before he said what I was hoping for.
It appears that he only has a couple of lines to his repertoire. Either that or he has a pretty stubborn streak, as he only managed to blurt out
”It’s time to bash!”
around 10 times or so before he said the magic words. Sheesh! The things you go through just to get a good shot :P
