Patch 6.2 Tanaan Jungle Daily Objectives and Gearing Alts Preview

As everyone knows Tanaan Jungle will be released in patch 6.2. We went onto the PTR to take a look at what Tanaan will offer. Tanaan Jungle will be a combination of the Draenor exploration experience and the Timeless Isle from Mists of Pandaria. There are a few introductory quests but it’s mostly up to the player to go into Tanaan and discover it’s secrets.

Everything below is from PTR testing, because of the nature of the PTR anything can change before the release of patch 6.2! (Latest changes on June 22nd – apexis crystal rewards have increased)

Every day there will be an apexis daily that you can pick up for one of the areas in Tanaan, much like the original apexis dailies with the release of Draenor. This will guide you to one of 7 areas and will be worth doing if you are interested in getting a mount or even upgrading your gear to item level 695 gear! Before we get into the rewards however, let’s talk bonus objectives.

Daily Objectives

Every day in every single apexis area, except for your apexis daily, there will be an apexis daily bonus objective for you to do. These bonus objectives will become active once you finish your daily apexis crystal quest. (You will also get 2 new quests to do when you go to turn it in these will give you a total of 1500 extra crystals). You will have to travel to each of the areas. This will grant you 800 apexis crystals per area (1200 for the Throne of Kil’jaeden), giving you a possible total of 4800 apexis crystals per day. (You’ll still be able to do the old apexis daily in old draenor as well for an additional 800 to 1000 crystals!) As you can see in the map below, the areas are right next to each other so you’ll be able to cruise through each of them if you group up with some friends or use the group finder.

The apexis daily will earn you 600 oil and 2000 apexis crystals. Oil is a valuable resource, as it is the resource you will need to send your ships from the shipyard out on missions, increasing the value of doing the new daily apexis crystal quest.

There is also a second daily quest, which you can also pick up in your Tanaan Jungle base. This quest requires you to kill 10 rare elites in Tanaan and loot an item from them. In exchange for these 10 kills you will be rewarded with 1500 additional crystals. Instead of killing rares, you can also loot the items from treasures in Tanaan.

It now requires 10 Fragments.

 

As mentioned above, after you turn in your apexis crystal daily 2 more quests will become available to you. The first requires you to go do 2 of the bonus objectives in the other Tanaan areas. This will give you 1000 apexis crystals. The second one will be a random quest that requires you to kill or collect some items in one of the Tanaan areas. This one will reward you with 500 crystals.

Finally, there are also bonus events in Tanaan Jungle. You’ll be able to find them on the map by the crossed swords with brown background icon. You’ll find a rare elite here, which is harder to kill than your average rare elite. These will reward you with 100 oil upon death and possible other items such as the medal of the legion. Which will give you 1000 reputation with every faction on Draenor when you use it.

All in all this means you will be able to earn a possible of 10200 apexis crystals per day, or 10300 if you chose the Throne of Kil’jaeden as your daily apexis quest. This does not include the 800 to 1000 from the old apexis crystal daily. Which you can use to earn some tasty rewards..

Gearing up with Apexis Crystals

In your faction’s base in Tanaan Jungle there is a new apexis vendor. He sells tokens for each of your gear slots that you can turn into 650 item level items for your character. These cost 5000 apexis crystals per item, except for the weapon token which costs 10000 crystals. You will also be able to buy an upgrade item for these 650 items for 20000 apexis crystals which will upgrade it to a 695 item! This means that Tanaan Jungle, through the apexis crystals will award gear over a period of time that is higher than Heroic Blackrock Foundry gear!

The mobs and rares of Tanaan also have gear waiting for you! You will be able to loot the Baleful tokens off of random mobs within Tanaan, and the rares (not from events) also drop 650 and 655 item level gear.

If you’re fully decked out in Mythic Blackrock Foundry gear, these rewards probably won’t appeal to you. However there’s still the 150k apexis crystal mount to get as well as the oil from the daily (which you will need for your shipyard). For the rest, there’ll be plenty of time to spend in Tanaan to upgrade your gear. And if not, there’s always alts to gear up!

      I couldnt agree more with this. For me the best expansion was burning crusade. I thought the game was near perfect at this time. They just keep ruining it.

They are having a hard time trying to make a game that will make everyone like it they want the young the middle and the old people to join and then its hard to make it.. I love the game and they are trying atleast isn´t that the point? And yea if you dont like it don´t play it. Stop writing what you don´t like and start write what you like.

        Experience /Content >>>>> gear…

        I do not miss the days when you did do the old raids to death just so you could get lucky and everyone is geared up for next content.

        gear have become so boring over the years anyway now that they much smaller upgrades in the gaps , even set bonuses that favor one talent greatly over others have just ok bonuses but srews up customization .

        PLaying for the content, don’t give a crap on gear level since it is quite frankly do not have that major impacts if you 40 ilevel belows and still do up to heroic ( and mythic if you got a good team)

      Too bad people like you still look at vanilla through your rose tinted goggles. The game has been on a downward slope since wotlk and will continue to decline as they’re are doing nothing but pandering to crybaby bads because they want people to “experience the content”, so untill blizzard learns (Which they never will) the game is just gonna’ continue down this road of mediocrity.

      have fun grinding for low drop black dragon scale to use more or less shit armor that only needed for survial.

      oh wait….same thing as apax crystal just that you not forced 😮

      Rose tinted googles, vanila did sucks balls except if you loved to mash 1-2 buttons and pray to the RNG gods that your healer did throw a heal not at same time.

    I wonder when this shitty Timeless Isle idea will be over, because this makes me think seriously into taking a new break from the game

    I don’t even care about the new area it’s all about the raiding, that’s what the games about. questing is just boring. Brf is awesome if they make the new raid as good as that then they are doing a great job

    Tbh this is great for guilds who had players quitting wow again, this makes time for me to get an disc priest asap ready for raiding 🙂 alt ofc, people just think so simple minded “ugh more easy stuff for noobs to do raids we are doing ugh… we desvere to raid cause we worked for it all from the start ugh….” ;P sorry not ment to anyone but really feels like most people just want the game their way & only think inside their box of hate, what I see is a good chance to gear alts without having to go Highmaul or Blackrock foundry, most have stopped there & will go onto HFC 🙂 we need this for our alts :3

    Half you crybabies complaining about this content. I find the raids fun and overall WoD to be great. I hated Cata and skipped Pandaland. No one is forcing you to farm crystals. If you don’t like doing it….DONT DO IT lol
