wow Bonus Rolls in WoD: Seals of Tempered Fate

1 post in this topic


Bonus Rolls, introduced in Mists of Pandaria, will be sticking around for Warlords. While inv_misc_coin_18.jpgLesser Charms of Good Fortune currently are the only source for obtaining the 3x inv_arcane_orb.jpgWarforged Seals needed for bonus rolls each, in Warlords of Draenor there will be a variety of different ways to acquire your 3 weekly ability_animusorbs.jpgSeals of Tempered Fate (the WoD equivalent for Warforged Seals). Each of the 6 methods we present in the article awards 1 Seal of Tempered Fate, meaning that you do not need to do each of them every week, merely three.

Learn how to earn Bonus Rolls in Warlords and the new uses for Lesser Charms in 6.0!

Ashran Weekly Turn-ins

Just as with the weekly turn-in for inv_arcane_orb.jpgWarforged Seal, ability_animusorbs.jpgSeal of Tempered Fate are earned on a weekly basis and cap at a maximum of 10 per character at a time. The most common way of obtaining these is through the four weekly quests offered by Arrakoa in Ashran, located within each faction's hub. For Alliance players, Fate-Twister Seress is located at the southern point of Stormshield; for Horde players, Fate-Twister Tiklal is located at the western edge of the long, thin peninsula in the Warspear base.

Sealing Fate: Gold

At a cost of 500 gold, this is perhaps the most straight-forward method of obtaining bonus rolls. In Warlords, gold should be more plentiful and easier to obtain in general than in previous expansions:

Blizzard Icon Watcher, on Gold replacing Valor and Justice for rewards

Honor and Conquest definitely are not going away, just to clarify a misconception - you'll still be earning those currencies through PvP and using them to buy your PvP gear.

What will be going away is Justice and Valor. Over time, they've moved away from their original purpose, and given how widely available they'd become (awarded from quests, scenarios, dungeons, raids, etc.), we'd rather return to the original universal currency: gold. The final values aren't hooked up yet, but the old Valor rewards for completing your daily random dungeon or an LFR wing will be replaced with a hefty sum of gold, which should make something like the gold turn-in for a bonus roll seem far more attainable even for players who currently don't have much gold.

That said, the feedback/suggestion of allowing repeat turn-ins definitely has merit, and it's something we'll discuss and consider.


Sealing Fate: Apexis Crystals

For 1000x inv_apexis_draenor.jpgApexis Crystals, this is another fairly farmable method of getting a bonus roll each week. Apexis Crystals can be earned from many sources, including killing rare spawns throughout Draenor, completing the daily Garrison "Strategic Assault" quest (800), and completing the daily Battle in Ashran quest (1000). The drawback from using this weekly as one of your sources of Seals of Tempered Fate is that, early on at least, Apexis Crystals are a major source of gear upgrades.

Sealing Fate: Garrison Resources

If you have inv_garrison_resource.jpgGarrison Resources to spare, you can choose to spend 200 of them for a weekly bonus roll. As with inv_apexis_draenor.jpgApexis Crystals above, Garrison Resources will be quite at a premium early on in Warlords due to their importance in establishing your Garrison and for the purchase/exchange for other materials used by professions. In addition to earning Garrison Resources while questing, these are also dropped most commonly by rares around Draenor, and via repeatable item turn-ins at your Garrison.

Sealing Fate: Honor

If you are a casual PvPer or just have some to spare, spending 500x pvpcurrency_honor_horde.jpgHonor Points is the fourth Ashran weekly quest option for obtaining bonus rolls. Participating in Ashran battles or queuing for Random Battlegrounds will remain the most efficient ways to farm Honor Points in Warlords.


There are two additional ways in which to earn ability_animusorbs.jpgSeals of Tempered Fate via specific buildings or a bit of RNG inside your Garrison.

Dwarven Bunker / War Mill (Level 3)

Upon leveling a Dwarven Bunker / War Mill to Level 3, you will be provided with one ability_animusorbs.jpgSeal of Tempered Fate per week. As with all Level 3 garrison buildings, the blueprint is tied to a specific achievement. The blueprint for upgrading this garrison building to level 3, inv_garrison_blueprints3.jpgGarrison Blueprint: Dwarven Bunker, Level 3 (Alliance) or inv_garrison_blueprints3.jpgGarrison Blueprint: War Mill, Level 3, requires the achievement achievement_garrisonfollower_levelup20.jFilling the Ranks, which requires that you raise 20 garrison followers to level 100.

Mission: Drov the Ruinder

Drov the Ruiner is a Rare Level 100 Garrison Mission for three of your followers. Given the random nature of missions, it is not advised to plan on having this mission available as a source of one of your bonus rolls every week. Instead if you do happen to get this mission, if you already have procured three ability_animusorbs.jpgSeals of Tempered Fate through other methods in the current week, it is recommended that you hold on to it and not assign followers to complete it until after weekly resets happen.

Lesser Charms - Now For More Than Just Bonus Rolls!

If you're like me and have literally thousands of inv_misc_coin_18.jpgLesser Charms of Good Fortune that you never thought you'd ever be able to spend, there is good news ahead! In addition to being used for inv_arcane_orb.jpgWarforged Seal -- which will have no weekly limit on how many sets of 3 you can purchase -- come 6.0 players will also have the ability to spend 50x Lesser Charms of Good Fortune to upgrade their MoP-level blues and epics one time, the current equivalent of spending 250 pvecurrency_valor.jpgValor Points or 500 pvecurrency_justice.jpgJustice Points. This means that upgrading a Siege of Orgrimmar item to 4/4 will require 200x Lesser Charms of Good Fortune. The major impact of these changes are twofold.

First, you will be able to use a bonus roll on every boss within Siege of Orgrimmar. For those guilds who are looking to the 6.0 changes as the extra boost they need in order to kill Garrosh on Heroic or Mythic for the first time (to secure their raid team's leveling heirloom weapons), or those who are looking to finish gearing out alts in preparation for leveling in Warlords, this will be a pleasant power boost.

Second, this change means that, if members of your raid maintain multiple offsets of gear or manage to snag a bunch of upgrades in the weeks leading up to the launch of Warlords, the only limiting factor in having those items be fully 4/4 upgraded is spending some time grinding out rares on the Timeless Isle! Once again, not being limited to one full upgrade per week will be a welcome power boost.

      The method revolves around reselling shirts for profit. It doesn't require high initial investment.
      Broxel Goldgrasp sells a of shirts for just 25g/pc. The best thing is many aren't even aware of that vendor and players are buying them for ridiculous prices, because of the Fashionista: Shirt achievement. They visually represent World of Warcraft races.
      The vendor is located in Icecrown (Argent Tournament Grounds). If you're still farming ICC for Invincible's Reins or Ulduar for Mimiron's Head make sure to pay him a visit.
      He sells the following doublets:
      Orgrimmar Doublet Undercity Doublet Thunder Bluff Doublet Sen'jin Doublet Silvermoon Doublet Alliance
      Stormwind Doublet Ironforge Doublet Exodar Doublet Darnassus Doublet Gnomeregan Doublet Thomas Yance is a traveling salesman. He doesn't sell shirts only. His arsenal includes boots, pants or robes. You can experiment with selling them as well, especially on RP realms I assume they will be very valuable. The vendor can be found in Old Hillsbrad Foothills (Caverns of Time).
      Shirts he's selling:
      Recruit's Shirt Squire's Shirt Neophyte's Shirt Apprentice's Shirt Acolyte's Shirt Even though the shirts don't look very appealing, they still count toward the achievement and should make you some gold for a few copper investment.
      If you're absolutely lazy, I've got a surprise for you. There are shirt vendors in Dalaran too. Except you'll see a lot of those shirts on the Auction House, but that's the price you ultimately have to pay for your laziness.
      Angelique Butler (36, 37) is selling:
      Antiseptic-Soaked Dressing Wound Dressing Salan Sunthread (37, 55) is selling the following apparel:
      Ebon Filigreed Doublet Cerulean Filigreed Doublet Golden Filigreed Doublet Amber Filigreed Doublet Scarlet Filigreed Doublet Ebon Filigreed Shirt Cerulean Filigreed Shirt Amber Filigreed Shirt Scarlet Filigreed Shirt Golden Filigreed Shirt Blue Martial Shirt Green Martial Shirt Yellow Martial Shirt Purple Martial Shirt Red Martial Shirt Embroidered Shirt Is somewhat pricey. Costs 1,000 Gold. Tips
      Buy multiple shirts, but NEVER put all your stock in the Auction House at once. We want players to think the shirt is rare and that's why it has such a price tag. I'd put a single shirt of each on the AH per character. Up to two chars max. This includes undercutting it on your alt by a copper to make the illusion of rarity perfect. Shirts usually sell overnight without any issues.

      US realms are affected by yet another wave of gem dupe.
      Do you see a Level 1 character advertising in Trade, selling dozens of cheap gems? If the answer is yes, your realm is affected.
      These items are currently duped like crazy
      Saber's Eye of Agility Saber's Eye of Intellect Saber's Eye of Strength What I advise you is to:
      Stay away from these gems unless you need them for raiding. In this case, buying them from the Auction House makes them clean as opposed to direct trade with the duper, which is a bannable offense and such items can get removed from your inventory. Don't buy these items if they show up in your TSM Sniper. Prices were slowly recovering from the initial dupe back in September and here we go again. I feel really sorry for people who dumped lots of gold into 800/800 Jewelcrafting. The price of an uncut Saber's Eye is three times higher than its cut counterpart.
      EU Realms
      After having viewed prices of highly-populated EU realms, like Aerie Park, there aren't any spikes in supply and/or price drops. Many if not all EU realms remain unaffected.
      To check prices on your server, use The Undermine Journal. My realm is listing the cheapest for 2.8K. Did you see a price drop on your realm? Report back with results!

      Senior Game Designer Jeremy Feasel tweeted that there are more hidden items that the community hasn't discovered yet in Legion's initial Patch 7.0.
      Muffinus has been teasing us over at Twitter that there are more hidden items that are yet to be discovered aside from Reins of the Long-Forgotten Hippogryph, Kosumoth the Hungering or Hidden Artifact appearances.
      It could be something related to Shoe Shine Kit as there is a chest that periodically spawns, but can't be opened in Dalaran's Photonic Playground (44, 47) next to Sheddle Glossgleam's shoeshine seat. The chest spawns facing the wall and can't be opened.

      What we know so far (based on various Wowhead comments and observations):
      The chest spawns at early Sundays - 12 AM (PST) / 3 AM (EST) realm time - and despawns after two hours. During these two hours Sheddle Glossgleam goes drinking in Dalaran's Legerdemain Lounge. A coffee presser and two coffee grinders can be used in the Lounge at all times. I tried to click them in every possible sequence when he was drinking coffee like crazy,  but nothing happened. There's also an empty flower pot on the bar. The npc doesn't sell any other items apart from his usual inventory. There are no chat references that could give us any hint. Talking to other NPCs at the Lounge does nothing. His brother Shandy Glossgleam doesn't have any chat lines and is upstairs out on the balcony. Pick Pocket or Pick Lock don't work as the target is Friendly. Spectral Sight doesn't work. If you get the Shiny Shoes buff, the chest can't be opened and no interaction options become available. A similar chest to Sheddle's is near the art dealer, but you can't click it. Shoe Shine Kit Tracking Quest & 7.0 Dalaran - Shoe Shiner Disappear could be somehow tied to the whole event. Let's unravel the mystery!
