Rage of the Firelands.png

The Firelands Invasion is a world event that was introduced in Patch 4.2.0 as a prelude to the Firelands raid. The majority of the activity occurs within Mount Hyjal and the Molten Front, where players attempt to beat back forces loyal to Ragnaros that are seeking to destroy the World Tree.

Players progress through the quest line by acquiring Inv misc markoftheworldtree.png [Marks of the World Tree]. Unlike most other forms of currency, these are used primarily for quest progression, though some items may be purchased to gain reputation with the faction city capitals, or even to buy a chance for the Inv pet scorchedstone.png [Scorched Stone] to drop. These are all offered by Zen'Vorka.

It should be noted that players may not even begin the quests unless they have completed all the quests in Mount Hyjal, up to and including Aessina's Miracle. For that reason, Guardians of Hyjal: Call of the Ancients is offered to those who have not progressed as far as they need.
