Farming chests part 2: Ancient Guo-Lai Caches


As of now, I have 5 Skyshards out of the 10 needed to kill Alani. Once I get the 5 remaining I will be the proud owner of yet another Thundering Ruby Cloud Serpent, which I intend to sell.

As the grind is tedious and long, I wondered, would the farm itself be worth it on its own? I kill mogu’s till the end of dawn in the Vale of Eternal Blossom. Since Garrosh corrupted the Vale a lot has changed. So Mogu are really the best mobs to farm when you’re hoping for a drop of a Skyshard.

Here’s what you get from farming the Mogu’s in the vale (aside from those aweful skyshards).

In 1 hour of farming I obtained:
1. Money: 3.245 gold (based on gold looted and theoretical sale price of mats according to theunderminejournal.com)
2. Reputation: over 10.000 BoA reputation with the Golden Lotus
3. Skyshards: 1

How did I do this? 

I used 3 potions of luck. They each last 20 minutes and cost 1 golden lotus to make. I farmed the Mogu in these area’s of the vale:

During the 1-hour farm I looted (amongst other stuff) 21 Ancient Guo-Lai Cache Keys. After opening all chests this is what was in my bags:

Keep in mind before I started farming my gold total was 180K exactly. The potions of luck were not looted and I already had 4 out of 5 Skyshards.

To show you how awesome it is to loot these chests, here’s a video of Dorelei looting all 21 of them:
