As promised yesterday in my Jewelcrafting 450 article, today I'm gonna show you where I go to get the items required for the Dalaran Jewelcrafting dailies.
Let's not forget that in order to really master this profession, you will need to learn patterns bought with Dalaran's Jewelcrafter's Tokens which can be gained at a rate of one per day from the daily quests provided by Timothy Jones, the trainer in Dalaran. You can also buy pattern from reputation vendors but that's another story and I won't be doing that with my Warlock.
What follows is a list of the random quests that the guy offers. There are 6 of them and each is based on the same idea: it sends you to one of 3 zones to kill a certain type of creature which drops the item required to craft your quest item. In addition to the dropped item, you will also need 2 types of green gems.
Shipment: Blood Jade Amulet
The Blood Jade Amulet requies 1 Vrykul Amulet, 1 Dark Jade and 1 Bloodstone. The amulet can be found on "any Northrend Vrykul". The best spot I found for this is in Ymirheim (around 56,55 if you have coords), which is right in the middle of Icecrown. It's a very short flight from Dalaran. Just kill any of the Vrykul in the area.
Shipment: Shifting Sun Curio
The Shifting Sun Curio requres 1 Scouge Curio, 1 Sun Crystal and 1 Shadow Crystal. The Scourge Curio drops from "any Northrend Scourge". The best spot I found for this one is at around 72,64 in an area called The Broken Front. Kill the abominations in the area. The thing about Icecrown and Scourge is that Icecrown is heavily phased. My warlock hasn't completed many of the quests there so he isn't able to "see" Scourge as he should. For that reason, I found this spot that doesn't seem to be phased.
Shipment: Bright Armor Relic
Bright Armor Relic requires an Elemental Armor Scrap which drops from the revenants that are found in a small frozen lake with a large skeleton in the middle of it, at 72,39, as well as 1 Bloostone and 1 Huge Citrine.
Shipment: Glowing Ivory Figurine
A Glowing Ivory Figurine requires 1 Northern Ivory, 1 Chalcedony and 1 Shadow Crystal. The ivory drops from mammoths but the only ones that seem to drop it (for me, at least) are the ones at the Eastern extremity of Storm Peaks, around an area called Temple of Life at 64,45. I have tried mammoths closer to Dalaran but they never dropped anything, although Blizzard's quest tips indicate that they do.
Shipment: Intricate Bone Figurine
The Intricate Bone Figurine requires 1 Proto Dragon Bone, 1 Chalcedony and 1 Dark Jade. The closest location I've found for these dragons is above Brunnhildar Village at 49,60. You'll even find a nest with 3-4 hatchlings that have very little health. Also check some of the surrounding peaks for mature dragons.
Shipment: Wicked Sun Brooch
Finally, for a Wicked Sun Brooch you will need an Iron Dwarf Brooch, 1 Huge Citrine and 1 Sun Crystal. You can fing the brooch on Iron Dwarves and there's plenty of them in a cave slightly north of Frosthold, at around 27,67.
Please bear in mind that these are the quickest locations I could find. There may be closer ones, in which case let me know. The farthest one is the one at the Eastern edge of Storm Peaks but I typically reach all locations by flying on my slow carpet. I will just set my Warlock to auto-pilot and go do something else in the meantime. One other thing: these quests are quick because you typically only need to kill 2-3 mobs before your item drops. Sometimes it even drops on the first kill.
If you have found better locations, don't hesitate to let me know!
