Flawless Draenethyst Sphere

Blasted Lands Quest Turn Ins
Flawless Draenethyst Sphere & Imperfect Draenethyst Fragment
 Flawless Draenethyst Spheres and Imperfect Draenethyst Fragments

The Flawless Draenethyst Sphere and Imperfect Draenethyst Fragment are a couple of interesting quest items.  I'm writing about these today because they have been showing up on the auction house on my server at silly low prices.  Of course, I buy the Flawless Draenethyst Spheres and turn them in for the rewards. I then add the resulting blue gear to my Mists of Pandaria stockpile of blue weapons and gear I'm flipping to leveling characters in Mists of Pandaria.  It's just another aspect of my bargain blues stockpiling for Mists.
What Are These Draenethyst Items?

Any creature killed within the entire Blasted Lands zone in WoW, has a chance to drop either of the Draenethyst quest items.  The Sphere is more rare and drops much less often than the Fragments.  Although, if you kill one of the rare spawns within the Blasted Lands, you have a better chance at receiving one of the rarer Flawless Dranethyst Spheres. 

They are both repeatable quest turn ins that are given to the npc, Kum'isha, also located in Blasted Lands.  For each Flawless Draenethyst Sphere turned in, Kum'isha will award you with a container that when opened will award you a guaranteed rare blue item (weapon or gear) or possibly an epic purple item.  There is also a chance to get a second green item or a recipe within the same container awarded for the rare turn in.  So if you look up the Flwless Draenethyst Sphere on and see that the awarded container does contain green items, don't be fooled.  Those green items can appear in addition to the guaranteed rare blue item.  The Imperfect Draenethyst Fragment will award you a green item or two once turned in to Kum'isha.

If you are out and about questing or farming within the Blasted Lands zone, you will probably obtain a few of these items.  Make sure that you turn them in to Kum'isha yourself and get a shot at the epic items that can sell for a nice chunk of gold.  A few days ago, I found a pair of the Flawless Draenethyst Spheres on the auction house for 10 gold each.  I took the portal (which is found in any major city) out to the Blasted Lands zone and turned in both of the Spheres.  With those two turn ins I was awarded a nice rare item that I commonly sell for a few hundred gold and another that is a nice blue ranged weapon with +Agility that should bring a hefty price from a leveling hunter in Mists of Pandaria.  While I was in the area, I also noticed and killed another rare spawn, which also dropped a Flawless Draenethyst Sphere.  This one also awarded me a nice item to sell once the Mists expansion launches.

Even though there is a small gamble involved, I would add the Flawless Draenethyst Sphere to your snatch list and buy out any that you find for 25 gold and under and take the chance at getting the rare epic items, nice blue gear to sell on the auction house, or a chance at a rare recipe.

  1. Don't ignore the fact these blue and green items can also bring you some easy transmog pieces too. No tier 1 stuff granted, but you can get some pretty decent 2nd tier pieces to bolster your income.
