wow Warlords of Draenor Alpha: Filling Your Toy Box

8 posts in this topic


Learn how to get all of the Toys in Warlords of Draenor!

Looking for something to pass the time while waiting for the upcoming expansion? Already have your Legendary Cloak and want something else to grind for? How about collecting all of the currently obtainable items which will be changed to Toys in the upcoming expansion! Think your backpack (and bank) can handle it?

We've put together a list of all of the items currently classified as "Toy" in the Warlords of Draenor Alpha. For ease of use, this list is sorted by source of obtaining the Toy. Of course, as this is the current list from the latest Alpha build, the list is subject to change. Items will certainly be added in later Alpha builds, so please keep in mind that this list is in no way indicative of the final Toy Box we will see once the expansion goes live! Please also be aware that some of these items are no longer obtainable. However, there is always a possibility that Blizzard could retroactively re-award or otherwise add a method of re-acquiring these items if they have been deleted. For example, they could mail another inv_misc_enggizmos_20.jpgCrashin' Thrashin' Flyer Controller to all players who have earned the corresponding Feat of Strength. We'll have to wait and see!

Check out our guide detailing where and how to obtain all of the current Toy Box items! Bear in mind that there's are quite a few potential items which are not yet classified as Toys. We'll be updating this guide as more items are added to the Toy Box in future Alpha builds!

Be sure to also check out our preview of the Toy Box UI, which shows off the in-game UI and explains the features!


These Toys are earned upon completion of various achievements, some of which require a bit more work than others. Avid Pet Battlers will probably appreciate the Safari Hat being added to the Toy Box!
  • inv_holiday_brewfestbuff_01.jpgHonorary Brewmaster Keg
    This item is awarded by the achievement inv_misc_archaeology_vrykuldrinkinghorn.Pub Crawl, which requires the player to complete a variety of achievements within the Brewmoon Festival, Unga Ingoo, A Brewing Storm and Greenstone Village scenarios. The achievements can be earned on any difficulty, but all meta-achievements must be earned on the same character.
  • inv_helm_cloth_petsafari_a_01.jpgSafari Hat
    This item is awarded by the achievement inv_pet_achievement_defeatpettamer.jpgTaming the World, which requires the player to defeat 40 Master Pet Tamers in Pet Battles across the world.
  • inv_misc_book_11.jpgThe Schools of Arcane Magic - Mastery
    This item is awarded by the achievement inv_misc_book_11.jpgHigher Learning, which requires the player to find and read all of the volumes of "The Schools of Arcane Magic" found in Dalaran. The books are random spawns and this can be a time-consuming activity, as the books will only spawn every couple of hours.
  • inv_misc_coin_18.jpgTitanium Seal of Dalaran
    This item is awarded by the achievement inv_misc_coin_02.jpgThe Coin Master, which requires the player to complete three Fishing meta achievements. The player must fish every single character's lucky coin out of the Dalaran fountain, so this can be another time-consuming Toy to earn!


All archaeology Toys can be randomly discovered when completing artifacts for their respective branch. All Toys are Rare quality discoveries. Do keep in mind that certain branches of Archaeology will have minimum skill level requirements in order to access dig sites to survey. Good luck!

Night Elf Archeology (75 Archaeology Skill Required)Dwarf Archeology (75 Archaeology Skill Required)Draenei Archaeology (300 Archaeology Skill Required)Nerubian Archaeology (350 Archaeology Skill Required)Tol'Vir Archeology (450 Archaeology Skill Required)

Dropped by NPCs

These Toy items have a rare chance to drop from mobs around the world (mostly in Pandaria). Most of the items have specific drop sources, which are typically rare spawns found in Mists of Pandaria zones. To make locating the mobs and farming these drops easier, the drop lists have been organized by the general location of the source mob's spawn.

Mists of Pandaria Toy Drops
Valley of the Four WindsKun-Lai SummitDread WastesVale of Eternal BlossomsTimeless Isle Toy DropsIsle of Thunder Toy DropsNon-Pandaria Toy Drops

Miscellaneous Sources

These Toys didn't really fit best in any other category due to the special circumstances of being obtained. Some of these toys are significantly harder to acquire (inv_ingot_04.jpgUnsealed Chest items, I'm looking at you)!


Engineers rejoice! The various crafted teleporters are now considered Toys, and you can easily hotkey your various teleportation Toys and free up some bagspace! It's worth nothing that while the Wormhole Generators are not currently included on this list, there's certainly no reason we can't expect them to be added in a later build.
  • inv_misc_enggizmos_07.jpgDimensional Ripper - Area 52
    Crafted by Engineering. Requires 350 Goblin Engineering to craft and use. Binds when used, can only be used by Goblin Engineers. Will not show up as incomplete in a Gnomish Engineering character's Toy Box.
  • inv_misc_enggizmos_12.jpgUltrasafe Transporter: Toshley's Station
    Crafted by Gnomish Engineering. Requires 350 Gnomish Engineering to craft and use. Binds when used, can only be used by Gnomish Engineers. Will not show up as incomplete in a Goblin Engineering character's Toy Box.
  • inv_misc_enggizmos_07.jpgDimensional Ripper - Everlook
    Crafted by Engineering. Requires 260 Goblin Engineering to craft and use. Binds when used, can only be used by Goblin Engineers. Will not show up as incomplete in a Gnomish Engineering character's Toy Box.
  • inv_misc_enggizmos_12.jpgUltrasafe Transporter: Gadgetzan
    Crafted by Gnomish Engineering. Requires 260 Gnomish Engineering to craft and use. Binds when used, can only be used by Gnomish Engineers. Will not show up as incomplete in a Goblin Engineering character's Toy Box.
  • inv_misc_book_07.jpgRituals of the New Moon
    Crafted by Inscription. Requires 350 Inscription to craft. Binds when equipped, can be used by anyone. When this item is crafted, it creates one of four items. Each item has a different color wolf transformation (Grey, White, Red and Black) and the Toy Box has slots for all four. Players will be able to purchase this item on the Auction House.


These Toys can be purchased from vendors for either gold or a special currency. No special reputation is required for these items, making them some of the more relatively accessible Toys.
  • inv_misc_head_clockworkgnome_01.jpgWind-Up Train Wrecker
    This item can be purchased from toy vendors in Orgrimmar, Stormwind and Dalaran for 250 gold. It may also be found in the inv_holiday_christmas_present_01.jpgStolen Present obtainable during the Feast of Winter Veil.
Requires a Special Currency


These Toys are rewarded from quest chains at various levels. There are quite a few more quest reward items that players would certainly consider a Toy, such as the ever-so-popular inv_misc_gem_variety_02.jpgRainbow Generator and the loveable inv_jewelcrafting_goldenhare.jpgPuntable Marmot. It's worth mentioning that the latter was originally included in the first screenshots revealed of the Toy Box, even though it isn't listed in the current build. Of course, we can expect quite a few additions to the Toy Box, so don't worry if your favorite Toy isn't listed!
  • achievement_reputation_kirintor_offensivKirin Tor Beacon
    Awarded upon completion of the quest The Storm Gathers, which requires the player to travel to the Isle of Thunder. Available to Alliance characters only, and will not show up as incomplete in a Horde character's Toy Box.
  • achievement_faction_sunreaveronslaught.jSunreaver Beacon
    Awarded upon completion of the quest The Storm Gathers, which requires the player to travel to the Isle of Thunder. Available to Horde characters only, and will not show up as incomplete in a Alliance character's Toy Box.
  • inv_qirajidol_war.jpgTime-Lost Figurine
    Drops from Terokk, Level 72 Elite in Terokkar Forest. This mob can only be fought during the quest Terokk's Downfall, which is a Sha'tari Skyguard quest available at Skettis in the Terokkar Forest. To obtain the quest, players must start the quest chain with the quest World of Shadows, available from Severin. The trinket is not a guaranteed drop.


These Toys are obtained as rewards from various reputations. Each of these items requires a specific reputation level with its respective faction in order to be purchased. Some may also require specific currencies to be purchased.
  • inv_shirt_guildtabard_01.jpgArgent Crusader's Tabard
    Sold by Dame Evniki Kapsalis in Icecrown for 50 ability_paladin_artofwar.jpg [/wowicon]Champion's Seals. This item can only be purchased once the player has championed all factions of the Argent Tournament, earned Exalted status with as well as the right to represent every Alliance or Horde race's faction in the Argent Tournament. Quite a bit of time is required to obtain this item, as reputation is earned primarily through daily questing, but the daily quests are relatively easy to complete for a max-level character.
  • inv_fishingchair.jpgNat's Fishing Chair
    This item will be mailed to a character upon reaching Best Friends reputation with Nat Pagle. Reputation is earned by turning in rare fish to Nat Pagle in Krasarang Wilds.

Trading Card Game

This items can only be obtained by redeeming codes found on corresponding loot cards from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game. The cards are only somewhat rare, and while sets will go out-of-print, it's not uncommon to find cards from older sets online on sites such as eBay. Be prepared to pay a bit for some of these items, as the average sale price is around $35.00 per item. You can find listings on WoW TCG Loot.
  • achievement_boss_illidan.jpgDemon Hunter's Aspect
    Redeemable from the loot card "Demon Hunter's Aspect" in the War of the Ancients expansion.

World Event

These Toys can be only be obtained during specific world events. You can check out the in-game calendar (/calendar) to find out the dates and duration of each in-game world event. Many of these items require event-specific currencies which can be earned via daily quests.
  • inv_misc_football.jpgThe Pigskin
    This item is sold by toy vendors found in major cities for 40 gold. It can also be found in the inv_holiday_christmas_present_01.jpgStolen Present rewarded from the daily quest You're a Mean One... This item is only available during Feast of Winter Veil world event.

    This item is sold by event vendors found inside (and outside) of Ironforge and Orgrimmar for 100 inv_misc_coin_01.jpgBrewfest Prize Token. This item is only available during the Brewfest world event.

No Longer Available

There are a handful of items in the current Toy Box that are no longer obtainable. These items were rewards from specific in-game events which have since been removed, so it is not likely that Blizzard will re-introduce any of these items. There is no word yet on whether or not Blizzard will be able to retroactively re-award any of these items, though most of them do have corresponding achievements which can indicate that the item was earned. We will have to see how Blizzard decides to handle this.
  • inv_misc_orb_03.jpgMini Mana Bomb
    This item was awarded to Horde players at the conclusion of the Mists of Pandaria Fall of Theramore launch event.
  • inv_misc_tournaments_symbol_troll.jpgDarkspear Pride

Yes, this really is an excellent topic to bring up, as I was just thinking about some of the things I was going to do until the next expansion comes along. Thank you miyari for taking the time to create such a thorough & complete list, perfect for a 'completionist like myself. I love it!

So many of these toys are actually pretty hard to get! I don't even have the most of them; most of the toys I have aren't on the list yet (but there's no reason they won't be), so I'm not sure if I can yet spare the inventory space. I've long since dumped tons and tons of gear, though, so I technically do have the room, I guess. I always do a mass-purging of items prior to expansions; I'm pretty sure we'll get that extra void storage prior to the expansion release, so that'll certainly help!

Ive been looking for a list such as this, and until now all I have found is screenshots of various pages. I was looking to see if the Brazier of Dancing Flames (purchasable in Midsummer Festival for 350 Burning Blossoms) was in the toy box. From the below screenie I found it was,,, but it may have since been removed... still for the sake of an hour farming the bonfires might be a worthwhile purchase for anyone wanting to complete the toy box.

Yeah, definitely keep in mind that this list is Blizzard's first real sweep since implementing the feature and they're bound to add a ton more items to the Toy Box in future Beta updates, so don't get distraught!

Blessing of the old god is in the toy box in beta but not in your archeology list. You also have a few listed that aren't toys, is that because they will become part of the toy box later on?

Miyari is no longer working with us, so it is unlikely that she will come and answer your question or update the guide sad.png

      Tuning for Beast Mastery Hunters continues and Blizzard reverted changes made to Wild Call triggering. Dire Beast and Dire Frenzy will have two charges baseline The Mantle of Command (Legendary shoulders) will be changed to increase the proc chance of Wild Call.
      Changes above should result in more Focus and a more fluid rotation for Beast Mastery Hunters.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hi Beast Masters. We’ve been reading your feedback and trying different sets of changes for Beast Mastery Hunters internally and on PTR.

      To start, we are reverting all 7.2.5 changes we’ve made so far to how Wild Call triggers. Instead, Dire Beast and Dire Frenzy will have 2 charges baseline. The Mantle of Command (legendary shoulders that currently add +1 charge to Dire Beast/Dire Frenzy) will be changed to instead further increase the proc chance of Wild Call. 

      Overall, this will result in more Focus for all Beast Mastery Hunters, resulting in a more active rotation. Additionally, this gives all Beast Mastery Hunters access to a Dire Beast/Dire Frenzy with 2 charges playstyle that is more engaging and fun, allowing you to make decisions on when to use the buttons, instead of feeling like you should most often simply push them on cooldown.

      We’ve been trying other iterations of changes surrounding Dire Beast/Dire Frenzy and Wild Call, including increasing Dire Beast/Dire Frenzy Focus generation or versions that avoided changing the legendary shoulders drastically, but ultimately reached the conclusion that giving 2 charges to the abilities baseline, which many of you have asked for, was the best change for the spec at the current time. We appreciate your patience while we try different iterations on PTR.

      We are also making a few other less major changes to the spec in the next PTR patch, including: Aspect of the Wild will reduce the global cooldowns of your damaging abilities by 0.2 seconds, allowing you to more reliably spend the Focus you’re generating while it's active, especially with Dire Beast/Dire Frenzy going off. Kill Command and Dire Frenzy will cause your pet/Hati to charge up to 40 yds (up from 25 yds) to the target, matching the max range of your ranged abilities. When your pet casts Dash, Hati will also gain Dash for the same duration.

      Volunteer Guard Day micro-holiday is here and Blizzard continues to discuss 7.2.5 Brewmaster Monk / Discipline Priest class changes.
      Volunteer Guard Day
      /Salute a guard to receive the Volunteer City Guard buff. You will be periodically attacked by City Invaders. The buff persists through death. More details are included in our preview here.
      Patch 7.2.5 Class Discussion
      Class discussions are ongoing for Brewmaster Monks & Discipline Priest. If you've missed the previous round you can find it here.
      Brewmaster Monk
      Blizzard (Source)
      Lots of great feedback here on the latest build so far. Thanks.

      Latest thoughts:
      Spitfire - It's a fun playstyle option for people, but having both defensive (even without it being an increase to Hot Blooded, it's still more Elusive Brawler stacks) and offensive value (more Breath of Fires for damage), it's hard to fit it anywhere in the talent tree, and it complicates artifact trait values. We're going to just cut if for now (may return at some point in the future when it fits in better). Niuzao will return, and will simply deal more damage to make him competitive with the row.

      Blackout Combo - Yeah, the 2sec rotation is problematic. Some people like the frantic gameplay, but we think other talent combinations deliver on that better anyway. The main problems with it are that it invalidates a ton of other talent choices, actually *reduces* rotational choice because you just combo everything instead of having to choose what you combo, causes energy capping issues, is a massive buff to the talent potentially upsetting talent balance, and is too fast-paced without any other contribution. We're going to return it to 3sec, where you can pair it with other GCD-filling talents to create the frantic playstyle if you prefer, without causing the above issues.

      Hot Blooded and Dragonfire Brew - Baseline, Hot Blooded is very strong. 1% DR per bronze trait is already on the extremely strong side. The Legendary chest was created with Hot Blooded in mind as its defensive benefit. But that gets a little out of hand when we added 4th points to Bronzes, and you min/max relics, increasing it to the massively-OP level of 7% DR for a legendary. Then the 7.2.5 changes also add more Elusive Brawler stacks to that. We're going to adjust these two traits in order to better balance trait and legendary values: Dragonfire Brew will also increase the duration of Breath of Fire's DoT by 100%, giving it defensive value. Hot Blooded will now be active the whole time, instead of ~half the time without the Chest, and so is changing to 1% DR per point to compensate.

      EDIT: Overall Tuning - As always, overall tuning happens late in the process. Don't worry about overall power level of Brewmasters when giving feedback on these changes.

      Thanks all!
      I have a feeling there's a disconnect between how much the monk community value those elusive brawler stack and how the Developers value them.

      First off, as said many times, dodge doesn't do anything VS magic damage or VS any kind of boss threatening ability as they are undodgeable even if physical (ex: spellblade annihilate).

      From a mythic raider point of view, those dodge stacks hardly do anything, as bosses auto-attack (the only thing that's dodgeable) are the least threatening form of damage we have to face.

      From a M+ dungeon point of view, those stack comes and go so fast nobody will notice the buff... having 100% dodge chance for 1 auto-attack out of the 5+ weak mob training you hardly change anything... 

      It's also one of the reason people hardly, if ever, use blackout combo to empower purify.
      We value it based upon its actual real world value, not a theoretical worst case that doesn't actually exist. You should too.

      Yes, Elusive Brawler does nothing against Magic/undodgeable damage. However, apart from some extremely niche situations like Star Auger, it's not that piercing damage alone that kills you; it's the combination of those and other damage that is dodgeable. Nowhere is this more true than on Brewmasters, where there is no spike damage, only smoothed total damage (which is mostly auto attack damage). Mastery drastically reduces the total damage you take, which is the only thing scary to a Brewmaster anyway.
      Discipline Priest

      Thanks for all the feedback. As I mentioned last week, there was a lot of rapid iteration going on so it was hard to give any detailed updates. This build is a more complete set of changes that seems to be going in a good direction, though there are still some issues to work out.

      --Talent balancing. In particular, Evangelism is an idea we like, but finding serious competition for it as a raid talent might be hard. It probably needs to be against heavier hitters like Power Infusion (especially if that helps it be less of a one-note cooldown stacking build). There will likely be further iteration on talent arrangement to better accommodate the new additions.

      --Mana. The spell whose cost is most important for balance purposes is Plea, because it is now the most efficient way to convert excess mana into Atonements. We reduced the cost so it would make more sense when compared against Shadow Mend and Radiance, but have to keep an eye on whether that leaves mana as a reasonable limiter on how much Atonement you can spread over the course of an encounter.

      --Overall Atonement count. The changes in the last build helped fix a lot of mechanical issues, but also added a lot of raw power to the spec, particularly in terms of Atonement spread/uptime. And particularly Evangelism returns a lot of the burst-Atonement coverage that currently dominates Disc raiding. That's not necessarily a problem if everything else about the spec is working well, and it's good to continue having a bit of a niche that Disc is used to in Legion. But as discussed in my first post, if it's as easy to blanket the raid as it is on live, that limits the spec somewhat. 

      While this is something we'll monitor throughout PTR, especially with more internal and external raid testing, there is definitely a worry that in order to balance the spec at this point, the Atonement transfer % would have to go down, which is the opposite of the stated goal. We don't want to be in that position at the end of PTR when it's harder to make other changes.

      Roundup of today's Live Q/A with Game Director Ion "Watcher" Hazzikostas. Tomb will open somewhere between mid to late June. Exalted reputation requirement for Class Mounts was removed. Legendary items will be upgradable through essences, similar to 7.1.5.
      Legion Class Q/A was considered multiple times, but talking about a single spec wouldn't be too compelling to viewers playing a different class.
      Broken Shore
      The team didn't want players to feel overwhelmed with all the content on Day 1, which is why they went for gating Class Mounts
      The Exalted reputation requirement (Armies of Legionfall) was removed and once you finish the Legionfall campaign (Breaching the Tomb), you can start working on getting your Class Mount CRZ Issues
      They're acutely aware of it and don't like server hopping, it's definitely on their radar In Legion they introduced server sharding which made Legion launch smooth Some addons encourage behaviors that do not complement this tech (World Quest Group Finder) Demon Assaults
      Won't reward Armies of Legionfall reputation  They would have to sprinkle all rewards everywhere It's okay to have activities up that offer distinct rewards (AotL reputation / Nethershards) that do not interest you Don't need Nethershards? Don't do the Sentinax Legion Assaults are great source of Nethershards. If it's up in a zone you've got your emissary up, it's super time efficient Excessive Order Resources
      Spending 7,000 per week for getting 3 Seals of Broken Fate is a significant drain They may offer a sink in the future, but nothing is planned for now It's good to have excessive resources so that players don't feel forced to do World Quests Heirlooms
      Coming in the next 7.2.5 build Legendary Items
      New Legendary items will be introduced in 7.2.5 If you have all Legendaries for your spec, you will don't need to micromanage loot spec, off-spec Legendaries will drop automatically E.g. Brewmaster Monk who has all Legendaries for his spec will see WW / MW Legendaries drop Blizzard is happy with the current Legendary acquisition rate There will be a quest that offers a new Distilled Titan Essence to upgrade 940 Legendary items to 970 Mythic+ 
      Week 1 Tomb: Nothing Changes Mythic Tomb Opens: Mythic Cap goes up to 15, where weekly cache is comparable to Mythic Tomb and Mythic+ loot to Heroic Tomb loot According to completion rates / completion times / 2-chesting / 3-chesting, things are in a good space right now, no plans for nerfs Overall, affixes are good, learning curves (Fel Explosives), Grievious runs, people put on Prydaz etc.It's good to evolve different strategies for different affixes Nighthold Mythic
      Progression is fluid, Elisande & Gul'dan are subject to nerfs Patch 7.3
      We'll go to Argus and there's a new raid, more information not available so far There will be no Class-specific quests in 7.3. Armies of Legionfall represents all the classes united Reputation Paragon
      Paragon emissaries have underwhelming rewards compared to normal caches. This will be discussed in the future Timewalking
      Black Temple is tied to Burning Crusade Timewalking. Blizzard wants to come to a point where every Timewalking week will have a Timewalking raid associated with it Tomb of Sargeras
      Will open mid to late June More testing will be done on PTR (LFR Wing 1 opens this weekend) Items will have a +30 item level ceiling Gear will Titanforge to 955 Misc Questions
      Why are external buffs like Innervate and Greater Blessing of Wisdom still a thing? Did we learn nothing from Symbiosis?
      It doesn't feel good to need an external buff to feel viable. Disc Priests in 7.2.5 received changes to be less dependent on Innervation. Such spells help class identity It's better to fill a blank: bring the player, not the class. When you're looking for players, it's better to realize that you need a class that brings a buff rather than the highest item level player in the queue. You needed 5 Holy Priests for Felmyst. You could not be viable as a melee DPS if you didn't have a Warrior to give you Battle Shout, but that was nearly 10 years ago Will the Horde get an update on what's happening on their side? Sylvanas / Blightcaller / Volj'in?
      Vol'jin's dead. It's good not having to force this by a symmetry. They'll add a Horde part of the story when they feel it's right. At the start of the Broken Shore experience, Horde did have an additional cinematic.
      Will we ever be able to use Weapon Illusions on our Artifact?
      No. It was a really early decision by the Art team when they started working on Artifact weapons
      Will we be able to redo Mage Tower Challenges?
      Wasn't designed to be a repeatable thing, but this will be done in the future
