We’ve had a particularly rewarding few days of Emissary rewards in World of Warcraft retail. Today saw the second set of gold Emissary rewards Alliance-side in as many days – we had gold Emissaries for both factions a couple of days ago. At the moment in these dog-days of the Battle for Azeroth expansion, doing the particularly rewarding Emissary runs on all the alts is one of the activities that is relaxed fun.
Today’s gold Emissary was the Tortollan one, easier to do on the one hand as it only requires three not four world quests to tick off. That said if often requires slightly fiddly quests that can be quite an annoyance, this expansions equivalent of Legion’s Kirin Tor world quests – love them or hate them.
The two natural balance quests are easy enough, Cycle of Life and Beachhead. Make Loh Go is super easy and one I enjoy. Calligraphy really, really annoys me, however. I have no artistic skill whatever and find it really hard to be that precise with my mouse movements. The triangle version is ok but he circle is impossible for me – I have to ask my husband to do that one for me.
Since the Tortollan Seekers world quest spans zones, it’s also possible to double up and complete a zone-specific Emissary at the same time with the former world quests counting towards the latter. We did this today, completing Tortollan Seekers with the third world quest in Stormsong Valley and then continuing on in that zone to complete the Storm’s Wake emissary that was also up.
I don’t have any specific gold-gathering goals in mind, but it’s easy content to do with my husband when we’re not playing larger group content.
