|Here there be spiders.|
Saturday, February 7, 2015
If you didn't read the title of this post to the tune of the Lucky Charms jingle, I am horribly, horribly disappointed in you. =P
The Love is in the Air world event is approaching its halfway mark, and if you're after all of the pets and toys and achievements you'll probably need a ton of Love Tokens, and that means farming up Lovely Charms. After all, each character can turn in up to 4 Lovely Charm Bracelets per day for 5 Love Tokens each (one per each of your faction's city leaders), and then each additional bracelet can be traded for a single token.
Now, there are lots of places where you can farm up Lovely Charms - WoWhead has a list of good farming spots written by Elvinelol, but I think I've found a decent place that's not on the list: Deathweb Hollow.
Deathweb Hollow is full of spiders. Lots and lots of spiders. Also, there are clusters of spider eggs that spew out a handful of small baby spiders when stepped on. All of these mobs (which, in case you forgot, are spiders) are level 95+, so level 100 characters can kill them relatively easily while still qualifying for Lovely Charm drops. They also award Bodyguard reputation if you happen to keep a bodyguard around, presumably to guard your body...from all the spiders. Additionally, there are two rare mobs in the area (both spiders, if you couldn't guess): Klikixx and Taladorantula.
Klikixx is inside the cave in the hollow, at the end of the upper path - a path conveniently filled with dozens of spider egg sacks which you can pop for tons and tons of potentially-Lovely Charm-yielding kills. Taladorantula, on the other hand, must be summoned in the clearing just up the hill past the cave entrance. How? By squashing dozens and dozens of baby spiders, of course! Sadly, these spiders don't qualify as proper kills since simply running over them will squash them, but the many adds summoned by Taladorantula do count, and are quite easy to one-shot.
Still not sold? Okay, I don't blame you, but look, just kill lots and lots of baby spiders with fire and tie their corpses into bracelets, then hand those to your faction leaders. I'm sure they'll appreciate it. What could possibly go wrong?
