As hinted at in the mission text, Farahlon is an island that eventually becomes Netherstorm. Farahlon was on early development maps of Draenor but it is currently unknown if the island will appear in the game in a future patch.
This mission is a tribute to the Burning Crusade series of quests starting with
. The reward is
, which contains
- a toybox version of
布玛·迅石 / 卡拉
德尔瓦·铁拳 / 薇薇安
米阿尔 / 莫克斯·剑吼
to raise this mission to a 100% chance of completion.
Edit: Massive down-votes for letting people know which followers to use for 100% completion. I am not sure why this is, but I will stop posting this type of information as it's clearly not helpful.
While most missions will remain in your mission list for an annoyingly long period of time (many, many days), this one will vanish in a shockingly short period of time. It came up for me just after I'd sent the follower that could 100% it out on a long mission (which was essentially just to get that mission out of the list because it had overstayed it's welcome!)
Imagine my frustration when I logged in the next day to find this mission missing from my available mission list. Why on earth would this mission, one of the most interesting rewards of all missions in the game right now, vanish so quickly? Very stupid design decision on Blizzard's part. They sell the garrison as a "check in once in a while, but not log in everyday" type of game addition, but this "quick delete" logic flies in the face of that description.
So if you see this one, realize that it will not be there the next day. Do it immediately, because Blizzard designers really would rather you just keep the crap missions littering your logs instead of keeping the interesting ones around. For the record, it was almost exactly 24 hours from the time the mission appeared to the time I checked to find it gone. I have no idea how quickly it actually vanished though.
This mission is a
not an exploration mission (in Quick Facts) nor is it a Patrol Mission (presented by the symbol of a telescope). I've submitted a screenshot which I'm hoping some staff here at WoWhead might be able to do some updates to these missions, because it seems they were only datamined in Beta.
you are absolutely right Hannibal08
Imagine that I had the same issue with a 630 follower item level mission and the reward was a
necklace for me.
at that time I didn't have the followers with 630 IL ad I decided to wait: big mistake...th next morning this mission was gone :(
in stead, a tone of useless mission tend to live 4 ever....
I've also encountered this a few times, I found a list of the times that they are supposed to be pending in your list, but on at least 2 occasions missions that I wanted the rewards for and was waiting for followers to come off CD for vanished prematurely - once for seal of fate, once for a 645 weapon which would've been very handy at the time.
