Ethereum Staging Grounds - Netherstorm
4 stars based on
Times may vary for different people, but it took me a long time of pretty steady killing to get 1 key for an ID tag. Comment by Valkries I have killed a good 80 Ethereum mobs Day of patch and first part of the quest I got the key off the 2nd mob. I have yet to get one since. I came back about 10 mins later and did finally get a key. Drop rate is pretty low.
Comment by Hote This seems to be a quest thats meant to be done as you do all the other quests in this area as the ethereum staging grounds wow map locations rate is, for me, significantly smaller than the last quest. If you are just starting out in this area, make an effort to turn the salvaged key in right away so you can grab this quest and soften the blow of this grind.
As a side note, since wowhead doesn't mention it, the precursor to this quest is http: He's a level 71 mob and is the same npc type as the flesheaters, but I was unable to nova him in place.
Low HP, so easily droppable. Just to see, I did this quest again, got the key on the 10th mob or so, and got Porfus the Gem Gorger, a giant basilisk model. Same level 71, and just like the Fiend model, he wasn't kitable via frost spells, but had low enough HP to burn down easily. In both cases, the mob I freed dropped a green as well as ethereum staging grounds wow map locations ID tag. Uncertain if it's random which mob you get upon opening a cage, I tried the one closest to the entrance on the ones nearest to Ameer, and after that, tried the one behind it to the left.
Comment by kdanger I received sporeggar rep for freeing a sporeggar from one of the ethereum prisons. Comment by trancerau http: Comment by Trouler I got my first key on my third kill. Ever since I got this quest however, I haven't seen a key in 60 kills.
Wow, this really ethereum staging grounds wow map locations. I gave up after about 80 kills. Noticed a Horde Druid opening a prison, so I killed him and stole the mob from him. Hurray for my Ethereum Prisoner I. Comment by xmetacognitionx I didn't have much trouble farming these things.
Comment by jcranger25 What mobs should I kill to get the ID tags, i've been killing all but no tags. Comment by jcranger25 thats odd there 2 jcranger It was my first kill on that mob, so i have no clue about ethereum staging grounds wow map locations drop-percentage. Comment by NuSkooler I can confirm that the keys can definitely drop off any of the Ethernuim mobs. I flew around a bit looking for a Jailor and found none -- I then farmed up 5 keys in under 30 minutes just killing the random mobs.
So far, two blues and 3 greens. Comment by alcy Actually, get the keys for the prisons think it was the Gladiator who dropped it and you get the tag from the prison instantly. Comment by Ethereum staging grounds wow map locations The area sw of area 52 has the best drop rate so far and ne of the ethereum there drops the key.
Comment by Xrenias guys. Comment by Zanoan Yeah, a rather frustrating quest. Killed about 75 Ethereums so far, mostly Nullifiers and Avengers - no jailor, and no key. Comment by Ranas Quest is bugged for me, i can't loot the I. Comment by Thildir These keys also dropps from the Zaxxis humanoids south of Arena I went there to farm the other rep item and got a key from first Mob O.
I killed him 2 minutes ago. Comment by Knowxwhere I don't know what you guys are talking about. This is easy peasy. The keys drop off the various mobs around the camp, and then you open the ethereum prisons the big purpley ball things, there are a bunch at 54,40 and a big scary pops out.
Kill him and he drops the ID tags. Comment by skeleton17 I killed a Jailor at Comment by gman After killing around 20 random mobs, got it from Warden Icoshock. Comment by moviemania Do NOT move the tag from ethereum staging grounds wow map locations keyring to your inventor bag. It WILL vanish on you. For whatever reason I dragged and dropped it in my bag.
I went to look for it in my bag and it was no where to be found! LEAVE the tag in the keyring. Comment by CyberGrim The Zaxxis mobs south of Area 52 are a good place to farm for this while farming for the Zaxxis Insignia and Netherweave, if you're not bothered about a slightly lower drop rate but getting more farmable stuff overall, I would definatley suggest these mobs.
Comment by Gilean Just confirming icedoom the jailor does spawn at Comment by omoikane This is definitely a nice way to farm Consortium rep: Use the keys to open the prisons for rep a pop or whatever else that comes out. Considering that at exalted you can get the key that allows you to summon the mana-tomb boss without consuming it, it's probably a good idea to stick to this part of the rep grind until you're close to exalted.
Also, looking at the loot lists of the mobs you free, a lot of them have a chance at dropping shadow resist gear, which is critical for heroic mana-tomb It's nice to do the unlocking cage part of the quest not just by yourself especially with all those potential BOP blue loot that drops. Comment by mpoy70 Got the key from an Ethereum jailor at 63, Comment by Ardrius is it me or i cant find any friggin jailors?
Comment by ethereum staging grounds wow map locations The ethereum staging grounds wow map locations is repeatable, Ethereum Prisoner I. I got a key in every run so far.
Actually, there are like 12 of them in every Arc run only. Comment by swotam I agree with the suggestion to kill Zaxis guys while you are farming for keys. I spent 30 minutes killing mobs around Manaforge Ultris and got nothing except a couple of BOP greens, no keys. I then went and spent 40 minutes farming Zaxis mobs, got 40 badges and 2 keys so that's rep for 40 minutes work vs zero rep for 30 minutes work. Basically, you can farm the Zaxis and average 10 badges per 10 min, so that would be 60 per hour worth rep.
Plus, you might get keys to drop as a bonus. Finally, no basilisks to deal with. Open the Prison, kill the mob that spawns and u have ur ethereum staging grounds wow map locations. Comment by Spithas i have yet to see a Jailor in all the times i looked for him, i just gave up and started killing Avenger's and Nullifiers, they seem to have a higher drop rate than the ones inside the camp, they are all around the isle, got my first key on the 10th Nullifier.
Comment by Darkainon I have been working on this quest for two days now. I have gotten the key twice. I have opened two prisons. The first prison I opened the freed a sprorregard. The second time freed a keeper of time. Neither time have I gotten an I. Does anyone have any advice? Comment by PurePwnage Haha took me 2 kills to get one key, damn lucky. Comment by LoKHor If you are grinding Consortium rep, just grind Zaxxis Insignias at the Heap, and then open a prison with every key that one of those ethereals drops.
Comment by Cerres I have freed 2 prisonners at 54,46, both were mobs and both dropped an ID. Comment by geordiesi I would like to group alot of relevant information about this Quest.
The keys drop from most if not all the ethereum mobs around Manaforge Ultris and from the Zaxxis mobs near Manaforge B'naar. The jailors it would seem are on the same respawn as the other mobs so keep killing, I have had 3 jailors spawn immediately one after the other by killing the other mobs but can fly around looking for hours without a jailor if I havn't been killing the other mobs. Simply pick an area ethereum staging grounds wow map locations farm it, the time it takes you to kill mobs and respawn time, will soon dictate the size of the area to farm.
When you open a prison orb you have the chance of freeing a friendly or a hostile mob. The friendly mob will grant you relevant rep, so far I have had rep granted for as a human The Consortium, Cenarian Expedition, Sha'tar, Ethereum staging grounds wow map locations City and Keepers Of Time all and Sporegarr or something but it was less than the others. You will not get a prison I. Tag with these friendly mobs. If you free a hostile mob you will have to fight it.
Tag which you hand in to Commander Ameer and get rep with The Consortium, or as non human. Comment by Tiffytan Simply killed Ethereum Nexus- Stalker at entrance to area with the prisons pink bubbles.
A prison key dropped I opened the middle prison and out came Porfus the Gem Gorger. I killed him and he dropped a tag. Tag Its pretty easy, but Ethereum Jailor and the mob from the prison is pretty hard to kill, so your need good dps or another char.
