Farming: Dragon Soul:
Welcome to my guide Farming: Dragon Soul. With Queen’s Garnets at an absolute premium now, with the introduction of the World Event: Legion Timewalking and the Mage Tower, it’s never been a better time (other than during Cataclysm) to farm the raid: Dragon Soul.
Where is the entrance to Dragon Soul:
You’ll find the entrance to Dragon Soul within the Caverns of Time. Take the portal to Caverns of Time from either Stormwind (Alliance), or Orgrimmar (Horde). Fly down into the Caverns, and check your map for the Raid entrance.
Limitations to Raid Lockout:
It’s important to remember that 10/25 man and Normal/Heroic Raids share the same lockout. However, you’ll find Auridormi at the entrance; she will assist you in queuing for Looking for Raid (LFR) solo!
LFR doesn’t share the same lockout, so remember to do both to increase your chances of loot and gems.
How to Acquire Cataclysm Epic Gems:
Upon defeating each boss within Dragon Soul, you’ll receive a small amount of gold, some loot, and upon defeating Deathwing in the final encounter, you also have a chance at a mount.
Ideally, we’re interested in two items, Crystalline Geode and Elementium-Coated Geode. To purchase these, we need to loot Mote of Darkness (from the Forces of Deathwing) and Essence of Corrupted Deathwing (from defeating Deathwing). To find how many you have, check your currency tab!
You will notice that you’ll loot more Mote of Darkness than Essence of Corrupted Deathwing; this is why doing LFR increases your chances of obtaining more Epic gems.
Once you’ve obtained your Motes and Essence, seek out Dasnurimi within Dragon Soul, he can be found on the ground level of Wyrmrest Tower, coordinates [49.60].
How to defeat the Spine of Deathwing?
Many players struggle to defeat the Spine of Deathwing encounter due to the fight’s mechanics. But, fear not, here’s an excellent video from Haydes Realm, outlining how easy this is if you follow the advice closely!
As always, please do visit Haydes Realm’s Youtube, leave a like, and comment if you found their video helpful. Don’t forget to subscribe for future content!
I can’t stress this enough, don’t forget to run LFR! With the price of Queen’s Garnets selling for between 5-10k each, this raid can be a very profitable part of your farming routine. If you have alts that can clear this raid, you have a greater chance of earning a lot more gold.
