I feel like I have a secret agent inside World Of Warcraft sometimes. My good buddy David (@Darkfriend337 on twitter), who is an active raider and gold making entrepreneur has been feeding me all kinds of goodies that are coming out of the new 4.2 patch Firelands. From the awesome new gear and patterns, to screen shots like the one pictured above of the actual instance. It's amazing really. It brings memories rushing back of my time spent in early vanilla in Molten Core. Those really were the days. Now players of all kinds can relive that nostalgia with the new raid dungeon.
With that in mind, David also shared with me a gold tip to pass along to you, dear reader. The faction associated with the new raid dungeon are the Avengers of Hyjal. Those who increase that faction will be rewarded with various epics on the journey to exalted status. The first of which comes at friendly. Players who achieve friendly with the Avengers of Hyjal can buy a back piece for 250 gold. It took David's raid group just one night of farming trash to get there. What does that mean? Raiders need cloak enchants!
The best thing about Hyjal is that it brings all kinds of new and different cloaks into the game. So all classes will be able to benefit. That means you don't have to focus on one specific cloak enchant. Healers will need enchants. DPS will need enchants. Tanks will need enchants. Moreover, the cloaks aren't only being given out in the new raid dungeon. I heard a rumor, and I'm going to preface it with saying I haven't seen it yet, but I heard that completing the new Thrall quest chain will reward you with a 365 cloak as well. That means the player base that will be upgrading their back-piece is tremendous. Take advantage!
Keeping on topic with the Avengers of Hyjal, once you reach honored with the faction you'll be able to purchase a new belt from the vendor. That means a major increase in belt buckle sales. So don't get frustrated if you're buckles haven't been selling yet. As soon as people start getting to honored with the Avengers of Hyjal, you'll be seeing them fly off the shelves.
Let me know how your 4.2 is going. What's selling well, what's not. Made any big gains? Been surprised by anything? I and the readers here at Capped By Cata want to know.
