Argent Tournament Dailies: A Chip Off the Ulduar Block

A Chip Off the Ulduar Block is the counterpart to Jack Me Some Lumber, which we talked about a couple of days ago. This time around we need to gather up some stone to be used in building the coliseum. It's another Goblin quest, so naturally this stone must come from the most morally questionable location possible. This time around we're plundering Titan ruins.

You're sent off to the Storm Peaks equipped with a Goblin Chisel, and it's time to find your stone. You'll find them in the Foot Steppes and the Inventor's Library, which I've marked on the map above. Yes, there are two different locations you can finish this one, and I find there are advantage to each. The Inventor's Library is surrounded by Library Guardians that drop Relics of Ulduar. If you still need Sons of Hodir reputation, this is a good place to this quest. Two birds, one stone. The Foot Steppes is full of rhinos, so if you need their sweet, sweet meats, you'll want to do this there. It's really your choice.

The blocks look like what you see above. Just broken pieces of Titan ruins laying here and there. You need to get right up against them to use the quest item, it'll complain about being out of range unless you're really snuggled up.

You use your 'chisel' and then...

Pow! You've broken up the block into smaller, more manageable pieces. Be warned, this explosion actually does AOE damage, and not a small amount. When you lay the explosive, back up fast, especially if you just got out of combat. The explosion does between 7,000 and 8,000 fire damage to anything nearby and it can kill you if you're not careful.

You can get anywhere from 1 to 4 pieces of stone from each block, and you need a total of 15. If you're really unlucky, you might find yourself blowing up 15 blocks to get 15 little pieces. Best case scenario, you only have to blow up 4. Once you have 15, head back to the Argent Tournament grounds.

Like the Lumber quest, there's no reputation or anything tied to this quest. Doing it won't advance you through the Tournament any faster, so if you're only after reputation or Tourney items, you can safely skip this. If you're just in it for the gold? Go for it.

Your reward at level 80 is 13 gold and 23 silver.
