Profiting From Mankrik & The Protectors of Hyjal

Make Gold With Mankrik & Protectors of Hyjal
The Protectors Of Hyjal

The Protectors of Hyjal is one of the Firelands Dailies quests.  The Protectors of Hyjal quest is one of the first quests you receive as it is one of the repeatable Firelands Dailies that is started and takes place in the Mount Hyjal zone of World of Warcraft.  This quest was added to WoW during Patch 4.2 and the Firelands Invasion.  During the Protectors of Hyjal quest, you are required to kill multiple elementals at Sethria's Roost in Mount Hyjal. 

While on this quest, as soon as you enter the Sethria's Roost area you will be joined by some NPCs (Non-Player Characters).  You will be joined by 3 Protectors of Hyjal (Druids) and 1 named NPC from within the World of Warcraft.  See the below list for the possible NPCs that will assist you in Sethria's Roost.  These NPCs will continue to follow you and will assist you in all combat while in the Sethria's Roost area of Mount Hyjal.  If you lean Sethria's Roost, they will disappear.  If you return to Sethria's Roost, they will return to assist you again.

Have...Have We Met?

One of the requirements for the Veteran Of The Molten Front achievement (and the Flamebreaker title) is to complete the Have...Have We Met? achievement.  Have...Have We Met? requires you to locate and /wave at 6 of the various random NPCs that can be found assisting you or other players at Sethria's Roost.  The 6 Protectors of Hyjal that are required for Have...Have We Met? are:
  • Linken
  • Nat Pagle
  • Mankrik
  • Chromie
  • Thassarian
  • Hemet Nesingwary
For completing the achievement, you just have to find each of these 6 NPCs and do a /wave command while targeting each one in Sethria's Roost.  You can target NPCs that follow you or NPCs that follow another player. 

Profiting Off Of The Protectors of Hyjal

Profiting off of The Protectors of Hyjal is pretty simple and straightforward.  Everyone working on the achievements will need to wave at each of the 6 NPCs listed above.  Since each NPC is randomly determined once per day when you start the quest, there are players that will be searching for that 1 last NPC for days.  These players will pay a nice tip or fee, if you happen to have the final NPC that they need to complete the achievement.  I have been taking fees and tips for "showing my NPCs" for weeks now.  Your NPC will only be determined once per day per character when you first start the Protectors of Hyjal daily quest.  If you happen to receive one of the 6 NPCs required for the achievement, then you are in luck.

  1. If you get one of the 6 NPCs, then you can try to make some gold from your luck.
  2. Complete your daily quests for the Sethria's Roost and keep the quest active.  Do Not Turn in the quest or you lose your chance at making gold.  As long as the quest isn't turned in and your NPC has been set, you can charge people to land in Sethria's Roost and whip out your NPC.
  3. Leave the Sethria's Roost area so that your NPC disappears.
  4. Send out a bark in the Hyjal Area letting other players know which NPC you have and how much you are charging to display him for the other player to wave at.
  5. Enter the Molten Core and bark again.
  6. Visit a major city and bark again.
  7. Return to Mount Hyjal, collect your fees, then return to Sethria's Roost so your paying customers can get their /waves.
Mankrik : Shake Your Money Maker

Mankrik seems to be the rarest of all of the NPCs and can fetch a higher fee than the others in my observations.  Even if you just send out a few barking notifications while you are in Hyjal, you can make some tips and fees off of the other NPCs.  If you get Mankrik though, you can charge a nice fee as a lot of players will pay just to be done with the achievement and not have to worry about hunting down Protectors of Hyjal anymore.  OR at least until their next alt has to come and they are looking to finish the achievement even faster and are more willing to pay for each of the NPC Protectors of Hyjal.

  1. Yeah you're pretty much a dick for doing this. I like to make money myself but this just crosses the line into being a greedy jewbag, sorry.

  2. Yeah, I totally agree. I would make him show me Mankrik first, then I'd stiff him. What a jerk.

  3. Lol just jealous you didn't think of it first?

    Why you mad bro?
