There’s a lot going on in Tanaan Jungle. Consider this an addendum to my Draenor Noobs post.
There is a weekly boss you should kill without fail every week. Kazzak drops 705-711 gear suitable for your spec. Specifically he drops bracers, neck, cloak and trinket. He also (without fail) drops felblight. Felblight is a must for upgrading crafted equipment. Look closely at the equipment you get off Kaz. Sometimes it will have a prismatic socket. Sometimes it will have extra stats like avoidance or leach. All Kaz drops are not equal so take the time to look carefully. For Kaz you have a bonus roll available to you. It can be purchased from the Arakkoa vendor next to the AH in Stormshield for alliance and behind the portal/transmog building in Warspear. The four quests (gold, apexis, garrison resources, honor) give you the opportunity to trade for a Seal of Inevitable Fate. Here’s one final tip on this. If you forget to grab your bonus roll seal, don’t leave group. Hearth back to Lion’s Watch (if this stone is on cooldown hearth back to your garrison) and step through the portal to Ashran. Buy the seal and step back through the portal to Lion’s Watch and the bonus roll will pop . . . assuming your group is still active.
Gathering in Tanaan has the chance to drop felblight. Some days I get lots, some days I get none but if I’m going to do any gathering I try and do it in Tanaan.
If your gear score going into Tanaan is low (below 640 though 660 is a more comfortable ilvl for easily running Tanaan solo), ask someone with flight if they will fly you around to collect treasure and kill bosses. All treasure chests and fractured apexis bundles have a chance to drop baleful armor tokens which can pop equipment (armor, tokens, jewelry, weapons) that ranges from 650 to 685 in varying degrees of suitability for your spec.
Empowered Apexis Fragments (the upgrade token for items created by the baleful armor tokens) will upgrade your gear to 695. They are battle.net account bound. If you start a new toon in Tanaan you can send those upgrade tokens across realm/faction to your noob, so continue to collect apexis crystals even if you don’t think you need them.
There are a couple one-time treasures available in Tanaan. They appear on the map if you’re using Handinotes:Draenor. All the other chests and fragments respawn so watch for them as you work your way around Tanaan.
If you chose the artillery tower in Talador, that’s your best option for your garrison ability in Tanaan. It’s perfect for blasting the adds called by Varyx in Kranak and Riloth in Fel Forge. Artillery makes these two bosses easy to solo at ilvl 660 assuming you keep your toon properly enchanted and have your buffs up with bodyguard in tow. If you selected the tank option from Nagrand as your garrison ability . . . well, <wince>.
Fel wolves count as demon and as teeth. If you have demons and all the fel wolves at the approach to the Throne are up, you can finish your demon quest in about 4 minutes. If you have teeth, that batch of wolves and all the pigs (including the little ones) near those wolves (one end has Steelsnout) will nearly finish your teeth quest. Goreclaw’s cave is also a good source. Swoop through, gather them up and drop one bomb. That batch is good for between 1/2 and 1/3 of the teeth needed. There’s another batch of fel wolves up by Sha’naar where Ceraxas spawns. When you kill Ceraxas the first time a fel pup will spawn near the edge of the cliff. The quest gives you a spike collar which produces a pet. You get one of those but collect the collar for each toon as it’s worth a nice chunk of gold.
All the bosses in Tanaan (not Kaz) can be killed daily. They will drop 655 or better gear each day. Doing a sweep through Tanaan and killing every boss that pops is an excellent way to gain gold or enchanting mats, whichever you need most.
Fel sludge (the green rivers and pools of stuff in Tanaan) give you a buff/debuff. Ten stacks will kill you. Nine stacks gives you a nice dps boost.
Leatherworking hut followers can make tents which give an hour-long 10% stats boost. These are b.net account bound and can be sent cross realm/server. You can benefit from anyone’s tent. This may be faction dependent but can’t tell you for certain. If you have a tent buff that’s nearly out and want to rebuff, you will have to click the buff off before entering the tent. You will have to enter the tent unmounted. If the buff doesn’t pop in ten seconds, exit, check to make sure you don’t already have a tent buff running and reenter.
Outside your garrison (alliance) or by the bonfire at the pet area (horde) is a vendor that will sell you a recipe for 125 stat (more for stamina) food that uses fish. You can be a level one cook and still use the recipe. Stacks of the base fish (crescent saberfish) is usually available at the AH in reasonably sized stacks.
Fishing in Tanaan fel sludge pools will produce a fish that, when consumed, gives you a damage buff. Fishing them can also produce felblight. This fish is a great one to use if you don’t have food (savage feast, the chili that drops off the mission table or cooked food suitable to your spec).
If you sit down to eat and can’t get the food buff, you have a buff in place that is better than the food you’re trying to eat. If you have an about to expire 125 food buff sitting down to eat a savage feast (100 stat food buff) will do nothing. Click off the better buff and try again.
