After your take the main quest to do the apexis daily in one labeled area of your choice given two options you are given another quest to complete two bonus objectives, of your own choice anywhere. By now most people that have been playing around in T2 have done this process once or twice. I know I have found my favorite areas to do my two bonus objectives, of course based on time taken to do them and I am sure others have.
Before I share my opinion on which two bonus objectives are the best I do wish to make a few comments on this whole process.
I really dislike the fact I need to do the one objective and come back to turn it in before I can get the quest for the other two. I would rather them change the other quest from saying two to saying three and letting me pick it up at the same time I pick up the one directed objective. In the end I would still end up doing three, the initial one and the two additional ones, so changing it to three would not add more work but what it would do it make it so I do not need to return to base to pick up the follow up quest. I think that would be an excellent quality of life change in my opinion.
Now on to which bonus objectives I think are the best one. Remember, your mileage might vary based on the actions of people on your server or how busy your server is. My spots work because it seems not many people on my server are doing these areas for some odd reason.
The iron front is one hell of a quick bonus objective area. With bandages you can pick up, banners you can click and an elite mob that offers up an astounding 10% completion along with fast spawning normal mobs, most of which are in battle with the NPCs there and already injured that still give you credit even if you only put one auto attack on them make this area a super fast zone to do the bonus objective.
I start by grabbing a few boxes for my bandages when I land at the flight path. I then make a b-line to one of the elites, pulling all mobs that might aggro on me as I go. I dismount, hit misdirect, spin and turn and hit barrage. All the mobs trailing me, a few others, and the elite go to my pet. I burn them down some and then use the bandages on the injured people there, and there are always a few, and click the banner, sometimes there are two,while my pet does what my pet does and then I turn to finish the elite. Usually this puts me anywhere between 20-35% complete.
I repeat this process a couple of times and I am done on my hunter. But this is not one of my favorite places because my hunter can blow through it, it is one of my favorite places because my alts, even extremely under geared alts can blow through it and basically that means it is a great area for anyone.
You land at a flight path that is right at the start of the area. There are boxes for bandages right there and injured people all over at 4% completion each. The banners are also 4% completion each. The mobs in the area are in battle with the alliance and horde forces and are sometimes at very low life. Even if they are at 10 health as long as you tag them you will get full completion credit for killing them. All that and the ultimate kicker that if you see some hunter like me killing one of those elites I mentioned, throw a shot in. Yes, you get a full 10% completion when I kill it. You do not even need to kill it yourself.
All that awesome easiness and the fact there are a few rares that can appear there, two that need to be summoned and most people do not know how to do so, and you can get some of those fel corrupted apexis fragments you are looking for as well while doing the objective.
The iron front gets a 9 and a half star out of 10 for ease of completion from both my geared and ungeared characters. It only loses a half point because it is one of the furthest away, but at least it has a flight point right there.
The bleeding hallow area can be a little rough on an under geared character walking into it to get to the ultimate area I am going to suggest for this but when you get there it is great.
On a geared character it is pretty much a non issue, just pull everything and mow it down, and this is one of the best places for that because even on a full server there are usually a full set of mobs up somewhere in there. It seems to have the best respawn rate of all the bonus objective areas, at least in one place.
If you can make it all the way to the top you will see a large area with 7 or 8 of those blood orbs, each with one person guarding it. The guards have very low life so even a lower geared player can kill them fast and then clicking the orbs gives 3 or 4% per click. So kill guard, click orb, rinse and repeat and never ever worry about running out of spawns or orbs because in this spot, the highest spot in bleeding hallow, these babies respawn faster than you can kill and click.
If you do this one with a friend, have one kill and one click, as you share credit on clicks if you are in a group, this objective can take three minutes or less. Even alone it does not take much longer, depending on your gear of course. My hunter can one or two shot the orb guards whereas my rogue might take 4 or 5 globals to kill it. Either way, it dies fast and completing the quest is really easy here.
The bleeding hallow gets an 8 out of 10 for an under geared character because you might get slowed down getting to the top but once you do it is great and a 10 out of 10 from a well geared character because even the mobs leading up to there are easy to kill for them.
What are your favorite bonus objective areas or spaces you have found that help make them faster and easier?
