Farming Spot: Eternal Fire
Today’s post is sort of one of those blast from the past kind of posts. This is an old Wrath of the Lich King farming spot and I’m sure everyone under the sun knows about it. At least at some point if you where like me, before they added the Frozen Orb vendor into the game, this was the hot spot to farming Eternal Fire.
Basically what you’re farming here are Crystallized Fire off of Seething Revenant in Storm Peaks. Why was I farming them in the first place? Good question, well to be honest I wasn’t. I was doing The Sons of Hodir quest chain on Kalashot so I could get at least honored and pick up the mining bag to sell.
While over there questing, I stopped and thought to myself. Well dang I remember coming over here and fighting like 20 other players for mobs so I could farm up those dang Crystallized Fire’s to turn into Eternal Fire to sell on the Auction House.
Back then also I would be doing dailies which was required to get exalted with The Sons of Hodir. I can tell you that it was a grind from hell that I told myself I would never do again. As such none of my level 80′s plus characters beyond my main have ever touched the zone.
I figure, well I need that mining bag so I may as well.. and turns out that with the Guild Perk, some sort of speed up to the rep gain with them it’s much faster and not such a grind now. At the moment I reached the end and got the starting rep with them so I wasn’t hated anymore, I was 1 point off from Revered with them. What a change that is!
So for those who remember this farming spot, go on and hit me up with some stories of those days. Right now if you find that fires sell for a high price on your server and buying Frozen Orbs is too costly to trade in. You could totally farm these here, the best part is no one will be around so no need to fight for the mobs like back in the days of Wrath.
