Ask a Beta Tester: Soundtracks, trinkets, and travel

Alex Ziebart

Welcome back to Ask a Beta Tester! We'll jump right into things today with Graham's question...

What is the music like in Dalaran? Is there a web site where I can hear some/all of it?

Dalaran's music is some kind of weird cross between Draenei-style and Human-style music. It's like they picked up Stormwind City and dropped it on Azuremyst Isle. I don't think there's anywhere that you can download the entire Wrath of the Lich King soundtrack yet, but for sample you can stream just about anything on Songza if it's somewhere on the intertubes. And really, nowadays, what isn't?


In the new Naxx, and indeed, Wrath in general, does the old Argent Dawn trinket work? Not as far as scourgestones, mind (doubt they'd add that), but as far as granting a little rep per kill and the bonus AP vs undead?

Rep, no, because the new Naxxramas isn't tied to the Argent Dawn. It does give AP (or spell power) against Undead, though. And yes, it does work on Undead anywhere, not just in Naxxramas. There are definitely better trinkets around now, though. Any old green is going to do you better nowadays.

Justin asked...

Is there an easy way to get from Northrend to Outland (and back)? A portal from Dalaran to Shattrah, or something? Everyone does it in WoW now by keeping Hearth set to Outland, but that won't work with us all questing in Northrend...

There is a portal from Dalaran to Shattrath (and every other capital city), but I have not seen a portal back to Dalaran. Which makes sense for the moment, because Dalaran is sort of a 'reward' for hitting level 74 (earlier for Mages). I don't think they want you going from Shattrath to Dalaran as your first steps on Northrend.

So yes, you can get to Shattrath from Dalaran. If you want to get back, use your hearthstone, ring, or a Mage's portal.

Cyramn asked...

I'm currently farming some rep for the Cenarion Circle in Silithus, and I was wondering if any quests in Northrend will give some CC rep. I saw some D.E.H.T.A. quests are giving Cenarion Expedition repuation, but are there any other druids in the north giving rep for CC?

I haven't seen or heard of anything awarding Cenarion Circle rep in Northrend. I haven't done every quest in Wrath, so it's possible something gives CC rep, but I find it very unlikely.

Galla asked...

What is the duration of the new 'Replenishment' effect that hunters, priests, and paladins now give their raid and party, can they stack, and how does it work if you have more than one of these classes in one group/raid?

Replenishment does not stack as far as how many Replenishment buffs one person can have. You can only have one Replenishment buff. It just refreshes with everything that procs the buffs. It lasts for 14 seconds, but unless you go completely out of mana, you can keep the buff up indefinitely. You almost always end up refreshing it before it fades.

Rhudaur asked...

I am wondering about learning new recipes in professions in Wrath past what the trainers can teach. Will all professions have a daily quest to get tokens that are turned in for new recipes, or is it just the Jewelcrafters that will have to do that? Will there be other recipes available through drops?

I've seen similar systems in place for other professions, but not necessarily the same. Cooking and Jewelcrafting use the daily quests. Leatherworkers can turn in leather and furs they gather in exchange for patterns. I haven't seen much of anything like that for Blacksmiths or Tailors but that might be something we see later?

I actually haven't seen any patterns drop in person, except for First Aid. Yay bandages!
