Fangs of the Father Questline Guide

Rogues get two new legendary daggers with this patch and will be able to get them through a series of quests started by Lord Afrasastrasz in the Wyrmrest Temple.

Fangs of the Father Questline Guide
Golad, Twilight of Aspects
Tiriosh, Nightmare of Ages

Fangs of the Father

Fangs of the Father

Your melee attacks have a chance to grant Shadows of the Destroyer, increasing your Agility by 17, stacking up to 50 times. Each application past 30 grants an increasing chance to trigger Fury of the Destroyer. When triggered, this consumes all applications of Shadows of the Destroyer, immediately granting 5 combo points and cause your finishing moves to generate 5 combo points. Lasts 6 sec.

Questline

Proving Your Worth -- Bring the ring to Lord Afrasastrasz at Wyrmrest Temple within the Dragon Soul raid encounter.

Hello, ! You've earned a reputation among the flight as having - shall we say - 'nimble fingers'.
We need someone of your skills for a matter of utmost delicacy. Before I reveal more, we need to know you're the right for the job.
When the course of battle takes you to the Eye of Eternity, I need you to pickpocket Hagara the Stormbinder to retrieve a cryptomancer's decoder ring. Are you up to the task?

A Hidden Message -- Deliver the Solved Cipher to Corastrasza at the Vermillion Redoubt in Twilight Highlands.

Corastrasza, currently stationed at the Vermillion Redoubt in the Twilight Highlands, has intercepted a coded message of grave importance. I'll let her explain the full situation, but we need your expertise to unravel the cipher!
Take your decoder ring to an ethereal thaumaturge in your capital city - he should know how to charge it. Acquire the encoded cipher from Corastrasza and use the ring to decode it for her. Hurry! Time is ticking...

To Ravenholdt -- Talk to Mostrasz within the cave just outside of Ravenholdt Manor in the Hillsbrad Foothills.

If the egg is in Ravenholdt Manor, we can't risk torching it in an all-out assault. I'll need someone slippery to get in there and find out for sure. That's you, .
Mostrasz will help you infiltrate the compound. Speak to him just outside and fly to Ravenholdt together. Good luck!

To Catch a Thief -- Follow Wrathion upstairs and speak with him at Ravenholdt Manor in the Hillsbrad Foothills.

Just beyond this cave lies Ravenholdt Manor. You need to get inside without being seen!

There - now I'll be able to keep an eye on you and communicate as you venture into the compound. Now sneak into that manor, locate the egg, and don't get caught...

Our Man in Gilneas -- Seek out Zazzo Twinklefingers near the ruins of Gilneas City in Gilneas.

If you wish to join my cause and slaughter the black dragons in hiding, prove yourself by taking down Hiram Creed. He's amassing an army in Gilneas.
We haven't been able to slip past his defenders, but we've got a man on the scene keeping an eye on him. Zazzo Twinklefingers, a very crafty arcane mage, is waiting for us to contact him just outside of the ruins of the Gilnean capital.
Find him and he'll direct you to the target.

Our Man in Karazhan -- Report to Zazzo Twinklefingers in the ruins just southeast of Karazhan.

Your next target is the Black Dragon Nalice, who is engaged in some sort of arcane debauchery beneath the ruined tower of Karazhan.
Your primary mission is to destroy her, but if you can bring me back a vial of her blood, I'll be able to use it to augment the power of the daggers I've given you. Your accomplice Zazzo has already been dispatched to the scene and awaits you there. He'll have more details.

Blood of the Betrayer -- Take the vial to Zazzo Twinklefingers at Karazhan in Deadwind Pass.

I've pinpointed Nalice to the Master's Cellar, an extended basement you'll find in the ruins up ahead.
Dragon cultists are everywhere, and Nalice has set up some strange arcane storage devices throughout the area. Perhaps you can use those to your advantage?
Sneak past the cultists, obliterate Nalice, and grab a vial of her blood for Wrathion.
I'll keep my eyes on you and pull you out if you get into any trouble. But I'm NOT coming in there with you!

Victory in the Depths -- Take the Vial of Preserved Dragonsblood, along with your daggers Fear and Vengeance, to Wrathion at Ravenholdt Manor in Hillsbrad Foothills.

Done! You'll want to get this back to Wrathion as soon as possible, along with those two daggers of yours.
I don't know what he plans to do with this stuff. Between you and me, sometimes that little dragon kid creeps me out. Good luck!

Assassinate Creed -- Talk to Zazzo Twinklefingers northeast of Gilneas City in the Ruins of Gilneas.

The city has been in chaos for days now. Hiram Creed, disguised as a Gilnean, has infected the lot of those dogs with his own draconic blood. Even the Forsaken are having trouble routing him out.
Only a surgical assassination can end this!
The bridge behind me is relatively unguarded. Slip in through merchant's square and head south - you'll find Creed in the middle of the military district.
I'll keep an eye on you and pull you out if there's any trouble.
...There Will be trouble!

The Deed is Done -- Report your success to Prince Wrathion at Ravenholdt Manor in Hillsbrad Foothills.

Prince Wrathion will be pleased to hear that you've succeeded. You should report back to him at Ravenholdt Manor.
The Prince has been known to be extremely generous to those who help him.

Cluster Clutch -- Bring the Shadowy Gems to Prince Wrathion at Ravenholdt Manor in Hillsbrad Foothills.

The daggers I have given you are lifeless shells. They can do great things, once they are given a means to contain the power I have in mind.
I need for you to acquire Shadowy Gems for me. The facets of these unusual stones are like windows into the infinite. They are often used by minions of the Twilight's Hammer to control the most powerful of elementals.
A great battle is raging around Wyrmrest temple. Collect Elementium Gem Clusters from Deathwing's minions and bring the gems to me.

Firelands 4.3 Stealth Nerf

Some people seem to have noticed a "stealth" nerf to Firelands, Takralus got some more info on that below.

"Has anyone else noticed that Firelands seems to be a lot easier since the reset? We were doing Normal mode last night. Majordomo is even more of a pushover now he died so quick it was unreal and Rhyolith seemed to be moving a lot slower. "

Originally Posted by Takralus
Regarding Rhyolith’s movement speed, we made a slight change the animation in 4.3. So although he appears to be moving slower, we assure you his speed has not actually changed — it’s just a matter of perception.

We're also aware of reports that Rhyolith randomly becomes friendly during some encounters and we’re looking into that.

Now, we did remove Magma Geyser from phase 4 of the Heroic Ragnaros encounter, mainly because the encounter wasn’t playing out quite the way we wanted it to, not so much to make the fight easier.

"The fact that you could stand in a formation on the frost patch might have been unintended."

Originally Posted by Takralus
Exactly. The intent of the mechanic was indeed to require the raid to take turns cycling through the Breadths of Frost to reset their Superheated stacks, and to destroy the Breadth if too many people tried to camp in it at once. As it turned out, players discovered that a very, very precise triangle formation allowed three independent clumps to coexist inside the Breadth without triggering Geyser. All of the initial Heroic Ragnaros kills used this tactic, and it became the standard way of doing the fight.

We could have increased the detection radius that triggered Geyser, but in general we try to avoid enacting changes that make an encounter more difficult once that fight has already been defeated. Doing so creates a frustrating experience for players who have to re-learn something they believed they had mastered. The adjustments to the health and damage of Ragnaros and his minions in September primarily affected the difficulty of phases 1-3 of the encounter; at that time, we also decided that Magma Geyser should be removed from phase 4, but the change was not one that could straightforwardly make via hotfix, so it did not take effect until the 4.3 patch.

So basically, yes, it’s a nerf, but it’s because we weren’t happy with the mechanic and the only two solutions for fixing that were to either make the fight harder or to make it easier. And, as stated above, we try to avoid making fights harder once they’ve gone live.

So, despite the insinuation that we just want more people to get the kill, the change isn’t remotely going to let a guild that hasn’t mastered the encounter just walk in and defeat it.
