|Best Place To Farm Lovely Charms - Slags In Halls of Lightning|
The World of Warcraft annual Valentine's Day holiday event is now live on WoW's servers. This year the Love Is In The Air event has brought us a couple of great new ways to make gold in WoW. Mage's can make some easy gold selling portals to all of the players traveling to each of the major cities for the daily quest turn ins, but that is chump change compared to the other 2 ways to make gold in WoW.
Following suit after all of the other recent holiday changes, the Truesilver Shafted Arrow (awards Peddlefeet companion pet) is now BoE and tradable / sellable on the auction house. The Toxic Wasteling, which has a chance to drop from your heart shaped box that is awarded from the Apothecaries holiday boss, has not been changed to BoE. There has also been a new addition to the holiday vendors. They now sell a new BoE sellable mount, the Swift Lovebird. With a bit of a time investment you can purchase pets and mounts to sell on the auction house. The Peddlefeet pet costs 40 Love Tokens and the new mount costs 270 Love Tokens.
Lovely Charms & Lovely Charms Bracelets
The Love Tokens that are used as the holiday currency for purchasing the companion pets and mounts are awarded from completing the daily holiday quests. Each day you need to do the 5 daily quests. Each quest awards 5 Love Tokens. There is 1 random daily and once quest for each of the 4 capital cities leaders to turn in a Lovely Charm Bracelet. Each Bracelet requires 10 Lovely Charms. You can farm the Lovely Charms to create your own Bracelets or you can buy the completed Bracelets from other players. You can also exchange 1 Lovely Charm Bracelet for a single Love Token at the vendor, but this is a very inefficient use of your Lovely Charms.
Best Place to Farm Lovely Charms
When you ask most players "Where is the best place to farm for Lovely Charms?", the majority of players will reply that Icecrown is the best zone for farming the Lovely Charms. Sure, there are a lot of great areas with tightly packed creatures to kill for Lovely Charms, but there is a major drawback to farming charms in Icecrown. Icecrown is riddled with competition. Everyone else is there farming Lovely Charms too, which leads to inefficient farming. Let's look at a private better place to farm for Lovely Charms: the Halls of Lightning dungeon from Wrath of the Lich King.
|Farming Lovely Charms 2012 - Slags In Halls Of Lightning|
The Slags, within the dungeon Halls of Lightning, make the ideal targets for farming for Lovely Charms. These guys are located just past the 1st boss, which is easily accessible to any level 85. On regular dungeon mode these Slags are only level 79, which is the lowest level a creature can be to appear as green and still award Lovely Charms to a level 85 character. These slags die super easy since they each have less than 16k health total, as they are non-elites. The slags respawn rate is super fast, fast enough that you can almost go non-stop killing them. The downside is that there is no loot on their corpses, but that's actually a benefit to me as I don't get slowed down by looting.
After clearing my way to the Slag pit I farmed the Slags for Lovely Charms non-stop for an entire hour. I collected 281 Lovely Charms in just 1 solid hour of farming! One tip I can share about farming these the Slags in HoL is that even though they may be spread out all over the room, the majority of them tend to spawn from specific spawns points that surround the center column in the room. They spawn in at these spawn points and then move to their patrol points. So if you have an AoE effect, make sure you are dropping it over top of these spawn points. That way you will pick up respawns as soon as they pop up, which increases your speed and efficiency at farming the Lovely Charms.
My current plan is to use my Deathknight main to farm the Slags in Halls of Lightning to get a ton of the Lovely Charms. Then I will send sets of Lovely Charm Bracelets to multiple alts to complete the holiday dailies each day. When I have enough Love Tokens, I will hopefully be able to purchase multiple mounts and pets for sale on the WoW auction house. I will hang on to the companion pets until Mists of Pandaria brings us the Battle Pet System when the companion pet market value will peak, and will wait to unload the holiday mounts until they are no longer attainable.
