Patch 5.2: Warlocks will be able to toggle green fire off and on

Patch 52 Warlocks will be able to toggle green fire off and on
WoW Insider's warlock columnist Megan O'Neill wrote a spoiler-heavy summary of the apparently epic warlock-only quest for green fire. She told the tale of her continuing struggle, involving various demons, not least some of the denizens of the Black Temple.

Every warlock talking about this questline has spoken about how devilishly hard it becomes, how incredibly unforgiving the last boss is, and discussed whether it actually needs a nerf before going to live servers. At the time of writing, I only know of one warlock who has completed it.

But after all that work, what if green fire wasn't as great as you thought? Despite all your hard work, what if you decide that your incinerates just aren't fiery enough? It's often said that it's not easy being green, so what if you want out?

Warlock green fire quest reward and more

Warlock green fire quest reward and more
The exclusive warlock quest to nab green fire now has a quest reward to go with it. Not the expected green fire, but an actual piece of gear. MMO-Champion managed to dig up Akama's Seal of Courage, which is the reward for helping Akama out in the Black Temple -- presumably part of the Black Temple portion of the warlock quest. But how does a clever warlock obtain the quest in the first place?

We don't really know just yet. We do know that according to Ghostcrawler's tweet pictured above, it's not going to be something that players can grab immediately. There is a peculiar and interesting aspect to this whole chain, however, and it's in the form of Deathwing's meddling kiddo. That's right, Wrathion is somehow involved in the chain, according to quest information found over on WowDB. Why, exactly, Wrathion is so invested and involved in what warlocks are up to is also up in the air. For more information on the quest chain, Wowhead has a detailed guide available -- beware, spoilers abound!

Even though we don't have the total picture just yet, the bits and pieces that have been dug up via datamining are making it much harder to ignore my long-forgotten warlock alt. The thought of wielding green fire is pretty cool of course, but it's more the story potential in the chain that fascinates me. Just what are those shadowy masters of demonic entities up to, anyway? Time will tell.

Patch 5.2 PTR: Warlock area datamined


Adriacraft have been at it again, datamining what is believed to be the containing zone for an element of the warlock-specific "green fire quest" area. On first look, the zone itself, though not the map, appears to bear a striking visual resemblance to the zone in which the Obsidian Sanctum raid takes place, but with additional items added.

It seems from a brief glance at Wowhead's warlock-specific quests that the majority of the currently known quests refer, as expected, to the Black Temple, without mentioning another zone. Could this "island" be an instanced area accessed from within the Black Temple? It looks far too fiery for that to me at least, but with the little we know about the Council of the Black Harvest, also known as the Council of Six Daggers, and their ties to other, older zones, it could be that this is some area associated with that group.

What do you think? I know I'm really pleased I leveled my warlock, these quests look really exciting, even with our very limited knowledge of how it will all unfurl. Do note, as ever, that this is datamined information, and place an according amount of weight upon it. Let's hope this leads to more class-specific quests in future!
