Wrath Shard Farming

I’ve decided Heroic Violet Hold is my new favorite shard farming area. Done right it’s 30 minutes from start to finish.. you get 3 heroic badges, it has a nice +hit trinket [Mark of the War Prisoner] and bracers [Azure Cloth Bindings] and it can quickly refill your shard bag in perparation for the next day of raiding. Just because I hate -starting- a raid at 17 shards.

  • The only thing holding me back from rolling a warlock alt, and not a shadow priest is the ridiculousness of shards and shard farming. If only they had a way of AoE shard farming, then I’d be inclined to give them a chance.

    With patch 3.1 shard farming becomes much easier. The changes to Drain Soul allow a shard to proc off of every tick, not just when the mob dies. Long term I -do- believe Blizz is working toward changing the Shard system. I don’t know into what.. but I get the feeling it’s going to change.

    Roll a ‘lock alt. We’re deliciously irreverent.

    You can even shard farm while at the training dummies if you wish.
