A Guide to Daily Quests III: Blade’s Edge

3. Blade’s Edge Quests
These give Ogri’la and Sha’tari Skyguard reputation. At Honored Skyguard you can catch a free flight straight from Skettis to Ogri’la, and vice-versa. These quests give you monetary rewards and Apexis Shards, which are used to power some quest items, buy rewards from the rep vendor (including health and mana pots that work in the Blade’s Edge plateaux and Gruul’s Lair) and buy flasks from the crystalforges in Forge Camp: Wrath and Bashir’s Landing. These flasks can be used in Gruul’s Lair, and are very useful for it. In the early days of these dailies you will be scrounging for Apexis Shards (which also drop off mobs killed in the area); after a few weeks, you’ll have more than you know what to do with.

3.1 Precursors:
These are the worst precursors of the lot, because they include 5x 5-man quests. Most of them can be 3- or 4-manned, but the second-last quest absolutely requires 5 people to summon the boss.

They begin with a quest from an ogre in Lower City (below the Scryer bank) to speak to Mog’dorg the Wizened, at the Circle of Blood in Blade’s Edge Mountains. Mog’dorg will give you 3x 5-man quests to kill gronns and loot items from them.

A Guide to Daily Quests II: Skettis

2. Skettis Quests
These give Sha’tari Skyguard reputation. At Honored Skyguard you can catch a free flight straight from Skettis to Ogri’la, and vice-versa.

2.1 Precursor:
There is a quest-giver (Yuula) next to the griffon master in Shattrath City. She gives a quest to go and kill 20 ogres in the Barrier Hills, which are very close to Shattrath – just behind (NNW of) Aldor Rise. This is a fairly trivial quest; the ogres are easy pickings, although beware of some pathing elite ogres, and an elite gronn in one of the huts. After this, her follow-up quest sends you to Black Wind Landing, the Sha’tari camp at Skettis. Quickest way of getting there: griff to Allerian Stronghold and then fly SSE up into the mountains, if you’re Alliance. If you’re Horde, flying direct is quicker if you have an epic mount; otherwise, fly to Stonebreaker and head in from there.

2.2 Quest Details:
There are two daily quests available at Skettis. They give monetary rewards, and the escort quest also gives you 2 unstable mana pots or 2 volatile health pots.

A Guide to Daily Quests I: Introduction

I originally wrote this guide for my guild forums; I’m reposting it here as it may be of use.

This guide is going to be full of old news to most of you, but I’m sure there are some folks who haven’t yet started on the dailies, and it’s my hope this will be of some use to them.

1. What is a Daily Quest?
A daily quest is, as the name suggests, a repeatable quest that can be done once a day. It usually has a non-repeatable precursor, and a decent cash payoff; dailies were brought in by the devs to help with providing a gold supply outside of farming, to reduce the demand for gold sellers’ services.

You can only do 10 daily quests per day, so if you have access to more than 10 quests, you have to choose which ones you want to do. Most daily quests give faction rewards as well as gold, and you can continue doing the dailies indefinitely even after you get Exalted with the relevant faction(s).

There are, so far, three types of daily quest: Skettis quests, Ogri’la quests and Netherwing quests, if one categorises them by quest location/faction. The devs have said there will be more types in future, including a cooking daily. (!) These should be coming in patch 2.3.

Note that for all daily quests currently in the game, you need a flying mount to access the areas involved, and the quests requires level 70. A level 70 without a griff could probably be summoned around by a party with a warlock, though.

2.3: Cooking Dailies Again

Okay, time to summarise another of the cooking dailies. I’ll continue adding info about these as long as we’re seeing new ones pop up.

Soup For the Soul
Requires 4 Roasted Clefthoof (each of which takes one Clefthoof Meat, which drops off various types of Clefthoof beasts in Nagrand). Take the provided Cooking Pot to the Ancestral Grounds in Nagrand (at 26,61) and find the cooking fire (which is a middling-sized bonfire, rather than one of the cauldrons). Use the pot at the fire to combine the Roasted Clefthoof into a Spiritual Soup; return the soup to The Rokk to complete the quest.

4. Netherwing Quests
These give Netherwing reputation.

4.1 Precursors:
The Netherwing dailies require you to have Neutral rep (one starts at Hated) with the Netherwing faction before you begin, which is gained by doing a quest chain given by Mordenai, an NPC wandering in the Netherwing Fields in Shadowmoon Valley. This quest chain will reward you with a huge rep boost at the end, to make sure you are Neutral.

The series is described at WoWhead; you need a flying mount to do this quest series (can’t be gotten around with warlock summons, as you need to speak with a dragon flying in the air at several points in the chain).

4.2 Other Requirements:
Unlike the other dailies, you need 300 riding skill – ie 5k gold – to begin the Netherwing daily quests. You don’t need an epic mount, but you do need the riding skill for one.

Note that you only need normal flying skill/mount for the prequests described in 4.1; you need the epic flying skill to go on to the post-Neutral dailies.
