Brilliant, Thank you Hamlet!I needed to figure out the bonuses traits provided, thank you for the insight.I think the strategy i am going to go with going forward is to restrict my followers to a small pool of races with the appropriate racial bonuses, apparently those make a huge difference.I currently have an epic Vargoth and Tuulani with an affinity for Draenei/Gnomes and Humans, respectively. I also have a Pitfighter Jean-Claude Vandaam who is a better asset than he is an actor, with Plainsrunner and Ogreslayer. With careful planning and a little bit of luck you can make up for almost two missing counters!
Thanks for the guide.It's my goal that I can get these missions on my main. Salvage yard in place to upgrade followers more often, and I'm working to get my follower army to 645. Only got a few to 630 currently.
How do I get to see my followers traits and abilites as the picture shows and not just when they are usefull?
When you say "you need a follower to hit ilvl 645 and 15 boss kills from Normal Mode Highmaul" do you mean my followers need 15 kills on their missions, or I need 15 kills in the actual raid?
Do these missions keep popping up or are they a one-shot...once you get a chance and fail, it's gone? Yes, like many others, I had a 89% chance and failed. hmf
This section is lacking info for people who are wondering... There isnt 15 bosses in Highmaul.. so it would have to be a TOTAL of 15 over all.. Bit confused to how you put this.. and would be nice if you explain it more that way people arnt trying figure out what and how to get it to proc. A: 15 bosses total before cache will appear on your missionB: 15 Bosses in 1 week (as in running Raid more then once since you can regardless once with loot and once without) Before cache will appearAs for 2 followers hitting 645.. i already have 10 so it must be your first 2 will give you 1 cache after that you wont get it anymore(?) (Or its just random). since i have 10 already at 650+ and i have only had 2 Normal Loot cache (But i have gotten gear to drop that wasnt highmaul*Dont recall tho*).Our raid runs both Heroic and normal.. in total since we started, i have had 1-2 Normal Loot Cache and Now just recently got my Heroic Loot Cache. I feel this is more random. but this is what happen to me so far.***Edit, i dont think followers are base off the 645 ilvl part since like i posted i have 10 almost 11 -12 that are above 645. as for heroic Cache. i check my logs, i have killed normal bosses in total 15 times. so this is confirmed *outside a blue post* as for Mythic catch i have yet to recive but should get 1 this week since i am at 14 kills in Heroic now.**** New Edit Wonder if you can just run Normal for example over and over again to hit your 15 kills or does this mean each boss killed once counts to the timer.Highmaul Mission RewardsThere are four tiers of rewards, which are based on your number of boss kills at a certain difficulty:To receive missions that reward Cache of Highmaul Treasures which contains ilvl 655 Normal loot, you need 2 followers to hit ilvl 645.To receive missions that reward Cache of Highmaul Treasures which contains ilvl 670 Heroic loot, you need 2 followers at ilvl 645 and 15 boss kills from Normal Mode Highmaul.To receive missions that reward Cache of Highmaul Treasures which contains ilvl 685 Mythic loot, you need 2 followers at ilvl 645 and 15 boss kills from Heroic Mode Highmaul. To get an additional 1,000 in addition to Mythic loot, you need 15 boss kills from Mythic Highmaul.
Everything's just awesome... wish I could play though I miss WoW (1.5 years no play)
In case you're wondering, and if I read this correctly - there is NO NEGATIVE interaction between High Stamina / Epic Mount.High Stamina applies to the base mission time, not the one reduced after Epic Mount.
Just failed my Heroic Highmaul Mission that had a 99% chance of success... Any idea of I was just incredibly unlucky or if these just have a higher than apparent chance at failing?
Just unlucky. I tried the rare 100 mission with 20k exp and 1k apexis shards once with 12% chance or so and actually succeeded, yet I failed a 92% mission the day after. RNG is....... RNG :)Also want to add that having Lv.3 Barracks to get the 5 more active followers is quite nice if you have some bad luck with getting follower to get double-counters for these missions, and for the future if you want to min-max mission followers, you actually want to get rid of Leorajh and the other bodyguard followers since it's a trait that can't be removed. However with little Group Damage options for Horde atleast you kinda have to use a weekly Inn search to get a Group Damage follower and hope for some good traits.Perhaps not THAT much needed now, but if BRF will give new missions and 6.1 missions becoming available and if they get tougher then it could be a consideration.
You should probably list how long these missions stay around, as I took a day or two to gear up my characters so I could get a 100% on my first raid mission. Got the Ogre mission, was able to get 100% with five threats down and two racial synergy traits (orc and goblin). Upgrading the weapon on my last follower was a huge pain; hit the limit of 655 on their armor no problem, but the weapon tokens (at least for me) are harder to come by.
The RNG gods frowned upon you this quest. I've failed a 24 hr mission for the legendary stones with a 98% chance and passed a 7% rare quest I was just trying to get off the board.
Nice guide thanks for posting. I'll compare my team tonight :)
