Dynasty's Edge

Edge from Dynasty – A Review

by Scorpyo on March 19, 2015


My rating: 4 stars – Website reviewed: Manaview’s Edge

One of Dynasty’s add on is called Edge. It is an in-game advisor about talents, glyphs and rotations.

According to Dynasty, Edge is a personal talent and glyph advisor, and it works in three easy steps:

1. Select your class.
Done! I chose my mage, whom I just double spec’ed to try the product.

2. Choose what you want to do.
Done. Since they don’t have “kill dwarves”, I chose the next best: “PvP”.

3. Pick your spec.
Done. Since my other talent tree is frost, I chose “fire”

And then…

The Firelands

Quick WoW-Gold: Farming Firelands

by Scorpyo on February 5, 2015

(05/02-2014) – Instance firelands entranceA quick way to make a lot of gold is to solo old raids. I generally solo WOTLK-raids regularly. They give less gold than Cataclysm-raid but they are all on the same continent (Northrend) so it is quick to go from one to the other. The Cataclysm raids are further apart from each other, so it is a bit boring.

One place, where you can earn a bunch of gold is Firelands.

Firelands entrance is located in Mount Hyjal in Kalimdor. It is in Sulfuron Spire, the giant lava lake on the south part of the map. You can’t miss it.

Now when Blizzard has squished the old content, this instance is very easy to clear. You don’t need any special gear or spec. Any DPS-class will work just fine.

Firebird's challenge

(03/11-2014) – The Darkmoon Faire is in town the first week out of every month. Not much unknown in that, that’s right.

If you are used to go to Darkmoon Faire, you will notice some changes and there are more to come. If you are not used to go to Darkmoon Faire, you’d better get used to it. It is a must and there is a lot of exciting stuff in there.

First of all, you can gain +5 in each of your profession by doing very easy quests (plus eventually xp’s). This works for every primary and every secondary profession. These quest are non repeatable (on the same Darkmoon Faire; you will be able to make them again the month after).

Then there are dailies… And with patch 6.0.2, there are more dailies than before.

The quests, all the quests, dailies or not, reward you with one or more Darkmoon Prize Tickets. This is a currency used in Darkmoon Faire. With that, you can buy mounts, battle-pets, pets, heirlooms, transmog sets and many other things.

Remember that, when you have been to your first Darkmoon Faire and got your “Darkmoon Adventurer’s Guide”, you can collect items from dead players in PvP or from bosses, that you can hand in to different NPC’s in the Faire. In return, you get additional Darkmoon Prize Tickets.

In the new Back Market Auction House (which has moved from Pandaria to Nagrand), you can buy the Darkmoon Ticket Fanny Pack which contains from 400 to 500 Darkmoon Prize Tickets.

From now on, the level 85 upgraded heirlooms are only on sale in Dakrmoon Faire, as well as shields and off hands. So if you need those, don’t miss it!

Sylvanas’ Legacy

by Scorpyo on October 20, 2014

I love to see interpretations of events in World of Warcraft’s lore.

Here is a new name in the machinima’s world: Jaley Muffinz. He decided to make a machinima of one of my favorite characters in the lore (if not my favorite character): Sylvanas.

The story, in case you don’t know it, in short, goes like this: Sylvanas Windrunner defends the forests of Quel’thelas from Arthas as long as she can.

How to Get Your PvP Gear Fast

Much too many players still go in battleground with PvE gear on and they still believe that PvE gear is the way to go in PvP.

Well, bad news, it is not so! I have had only few encounters in world PvP since patch 5.3 so I can’t say for sure, but I can assure you, that in battlegrounds and rated battlegrounds, it is not the case. You will penalize your team by wearing exclusively PvE gear.

Not So Fast… Don’t Sell to Vendor Just Yet

September 29, 2014

Unsold Cloth Incase you don’t sell your cloth to the outrageous reasonable prices you’ve put it up for in AH, you can get more from the vendor by transforming them first. … Unsold Fish or Meat If you couldn’t sell your fish or meat in AH, it can be sold to a vendor, of course, but if you have cooking, you’ll get more for each item, when it’s cooked than if it’s raw.
