Throne of Thunder LFR is open! Here's the top 5 things to know:
- BOSS GUIDES: Know the boss fights for the first wing: Jin'rokh the Breaker, Horridon, Council of Elders and the second wing: Tortos, Megaera, Ji-Kun.
- REPUTATION GETS YOU ITEMS: You gain Shado-Pan Assault rep for running ToT, even LFR. After one LFR run, you will be Friendly Once you reach friendly with them, you can buy trinkets (1750 VP), rings (1250 VP), and wrists (1250 VP). At Honored you get items for your legs, back and hands. And of course, more slots open up with Revered and Exalted. Find out which Valor items are the biggest upgrade with Mr. Robot's Upgrade Finder. It also appears that you gain rep once per week for each boss, so if you gain rep in LFR, you won't get it again in Normal mode for that week.
- BONUS ROLLS: Know what bosses you want to spend bonus rolls on, ahead of time (see how Mr. Robot can help!). You will need Mogu Runes of Fate (instead of Elder Charms) for Throne of Thunder. You get these by turning in Lesser Charms of Fortune to the same NPC at your Shrine of Seven Stars/Two Moons (it's the same NPC you always turned them in to). If you don't have the option to get Mogu Runes of Fate, you might need to drop your Elder Charm quest to get it to switch over. Note - you can only turn them in once a week. Also, getting any amount of Shado-Pan Assault faction should open up that option as well. Note: it's rumored that the failbags have a chance to contain zone-wide drops (things that drop from trash).
- iLEVEL 480: You need an iLevel of 480 to get in to LFR (but no restrictions for Normal mode). The fastest ways to upgrade: check your 5.0 and 5.1 rep vendors, get the 522 neck, get Elder Charms for lots of 5.0 raid bonus rolls from the loot run, and look in the AH for crafted gear and BoE items. And of course, Mr. Robot can help you find valor, LFR and BoE/Crafted upgrades with his "Find Upgrades" feature.
