As for Questlines, they are Legendary spells that begin in a player’s hand and involve tiers of progression. After completing each step of a Questline, a player gets a reward.

Profession tools in United in Stormwind are weapons that have special effects as opposed to attack values. Meanwhile, a mount can aid players in battle by summoning another minion once the token gets taken down.
