Corrupted Songflower

Recommended Posts

I'm about to piss off all the speed running raiders across 4 servers at the same time:

 

Patch Release Notes 1.11.1

"Felwood was corrupted"

Corrupted Songflower quest added patch 1.11.1.

This shouldn't be in the game, shouldn't have been used for the previous speed runs and shouldn't be available during AQ progression.

 

I'm not making a bug report because I'm lazy.   The cleansing of Songflower needs to be removed or move Zanza Potions to cost 1 token and lose on death.

I doubt they'll change this if there isnt any bugreport though.

Guess this was something added to deal with Patchwerk destroying tanks and DPS not being able to push enough.

A short  length super-strong world buff added after the drop of Naxx.

I'm still not making the bug report though. :)

I dont know about that. Technically you arent "suppose" to mass-grab the buff by clicking at the same time. I'm not even sure you could do that in vanilla, maybe you could and blizzard turned a blind eye to it?

You could.

Feb 2006.    Guides on how to do it.  Blizzard changed it slightly because the looting of the seeds was messed up allowing the duplication of seeds (item dupping).   They left the multi buffing alone and didn't "fix" or adjust it to not allow raid wide buffing.   Specific addons (one which is mentioned in the link I provide) were specifically used for such cases.

Patch 1.11 was released in the US on the 20th june, 2006. The very post you link to contains posts about the songflowers from before that date.

Just saying.

Benefits

"I'm not quite sure why blizzard put these in an area where most of the mobs are hi 40s to 50s - as each one requires only lvl 45 to use.
Windblossom - 1,933 healing plus 10 stamina for 10 minutes
Nightdragon's breath - restores 394-456 mana & health
Whipperroot - restores 700-900 health
Haven't come across the song blossom yet..."

More on Salves
by DrowsyKitten, 1.0 year ago

"Cenarion Plant Salves can be found a variety of ways.  One way is through the use of a Cenarion Beacon (http://www.thottbot.com/index.cgi?i=2936).

You get a Cenarion Beacon from Arathandris Silversky (http://www.thottbot.com/index.cgi?n=6547) after completing the quest Cleansing Felwood (http://www.thottbot.com/index.cgi?q=1240).
Having it in your posession make it possible to find Corrupted Soul Shards (http://www.thottbot.com/index.cgi?i=2952) on slain creatures of the Felwood. 
These shards can be turned in to Arathandris Silversky. In return for 6 of them she will give you 2x Cenarion Plant Salve (http://www.thottbot.com/index.cgi?i=2948).
You then take these Salves to the various corrupted plants around Felwood and purify them.  Once you have purified the plants you can loot them.
Corrupted Whipper Root takes 3 salves to purify and gives you several Whipper Root Tubers (http://www.thottbot.com/index.cgi?i=2959)
Corrupted Night Dragon takes 4 salves to purify and gives you 7x Night Dragon's Breath (http://www.thottbot.com/index.cgi?i=6414)
Corrupted Windblossom takes 2 salves to purify and gives you several Windblossom Berries (http://www.thottbot.com/index.cgi?i=4841)
Corrupted Songflower takes 2 salves to purify and grants you a blessing Songflower Serenade.  The blessing lasts 60 minutes and "Increases chance for a critical hit by 5% and all attributes by 15."

"Yeah, you should absolutely do that. That will give you the Songflower Serenade-buff, which increases the chance for a critical hit by 5% and increases all attributes for one hour with 15.

Tada Songflower Serenade"

 

Adding a little retail footage for your entertainment about how Felwood plants were contested back then (hail baguettes of Archimonde - FR) even during mc/bwl content :

TLDR: Don't bother making a bug report x)

Every casual guilds use it aswell. So make that most of the raiding population.

Also Zanza potion is an item, not an object. Making it subject to itemization patches. You may very well be right, though I'm certain this is about as likely to happen as 24 hour onyxia buff CD. Nobody wants it because raiding without buffs is totally not fun.

EDIT: Just saw you got debunked by Slicy. nvm.

I've been digging around the forums and I can't track down a response from the Elysium staff regarding multiple people buffing from the same cleansed songflower. I see people were banned then unbanned on nostalrius, has there been any response from Elysium?
