Heart of Flame (quest)
85 (Requires 85)
My ascension has endowed me with incredible power. I have taken the liberty to strengthen Tarecgosa's bond with you, though she will require a more... permanent home.
When next we meet, I will be able to suitably thank you for all that you have done.
A fine day for a ceremony. Don't you think, <name>?
You have done well, <name>.
Now prepare to receive a hero's reward.
Smouldering Essence can be obtained by using the targeting the corpse of a Firelands boss. This can be only obtained when the player is on this quest. All bosses except Ragnaros will provide the following number of essences:
- 10 normal: 3-5 (full clear average: 24)
- 10 heroic: 7-8 (full clear average: 45)
- 25 normal: 7-8 (full clear average: 45)
- 25 heroic: 9-11 (full clear average: 60)
