WoW Hardcore Casual's (MoP 5.4) - Zandalari Warbringer Farming Guide
Published: 2014-05-14, by WoWHardCas-Team - Kel'Thuzad
There are a few reasons why players might want to farm Zandalari Warbringers, for me personally I was killing them for griding August Celestial rep. They also drop badges for Golden Lotus rep, Klaxxi rep and Shado-pan rep. Aside from this they drop some highly sought after mounts, trade goods, and a few BoE epics that don't really sell for much on my server but can be useful for leveling alts in the 85-89 level range.
Do you need a group?:
First thing is first, if you can't pull north of 200k dps on a regular target dummy, you are going to need some help. If you can't tank, heal or kite, you are going to need some help. I personally recommend you find a friend that wants to farm these with you, and come up with a looting arrangement that is good for both of you. One good arrangement is one player gets all rep, one player gets the mount and you both need all the bags, but anything works fine in my opinion. If you are exceptionally geared or you are good at kiting, then you can just solo them of course.
Soloing the Warbringers:
I also solo this as a hunter sometimes, and I have only one recommendation for those of you wishing to solo warbringers as a kite class: keep at least two CC breakers up at all times. The only difficult part in kiting him is when he fears you, which can cause you to either run too far away and reset him or allow him to get in range and burst you down. Occassionally he will fear you back to back which is why I recommend having at least two ways to break fear. I use beastial wrath and the PvP trinket to break the fears. I prefer to avoid letting my pet tank him by dropping aggro with feign death and such simply because this has caused him to reset a few times for me. I also avoid using my goblin glider for kiting because I have had this cause resets a few times as well.
Where do I farm them?:
Below is a map of Pandaria with all the Zandalari Warbringer farming spots. I recommend you farm them in Kun Lai and Jade Forest using the method I'm about to teach you.
How do I know I'm in the right spot?:
All the warbringers spawn with a bird companion that most players ignore (they don't drop anything of value really). So if you see a bird like in the picture below, you'll know you are in the correct spot:
So you know where they spawn and you're all setup, maybe you killed the first one in Kun Lai summit, and your waiting on the next? Well, instead of waiting, open up your friends list, go to the raid tab, and queue for a celestial world boss group!
This will pull you over to a low pop server in most likelihood and you can simply kill the Warbringers that are up on that server. I recommend killing both and perhaps checking to see if Scritch is up nearby and killing him as well. He drops the Hozen Peace Pipe (a consumable) which can be used once a week for gaining 1000 rep in all Pandarian factions, it also sells quite well.
Below you'll see a screenshot showing how to queue for a Celestial group!
My last recommendation for engineers is to use the pandarian wormhole generator to check different zones quickly after switching servers. This and if you have more than one player, choose binding locations on opposite sides of pandaria so you can split up and check for spawns more quickly.
That's all! Good luck farming!
