Spy in action

(07/04-2015) –  Farming can be dangerous if you are on a PvP or RPPvP realm. On every realm, you have people known as gankers: Originally, ganking was when people were more than one attacking a player from the opposite faction (from the words “gang killing”), but nowadays, it refers mostly to higher level killing lower level (today’s gang-killing is mostly called “zerging”).

However, even if you don’t get ganked, you might get caught into PvP and it is not always interesting. I mean, when I am farming ores or flowers, I don’t really have time to waste on PvP’ing. I’d rather let him have one spot and I fly or ride to another location.

Therefore, the little add-on known as Spy, is a great help.

You can find this add-on on Curse, right here => http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/spy

This add-on scans for enemy players and announces their presence when they are detected. If the player is fighting a mob, for example, Spy will attempt to determine the class, race and level of the player.

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…

Five more honor points

What to Do With Honor Points?

by Scorpyo on February 19, 2015

5 honors

When the new season starts, no problems. Most players use the honor points they get from battleground or from killing players to upgrade their gear (or buy it).

However, when the season is well advanced, and when you are geared, the question shows up on forums, in trade-chat, in guild-chat and everywhere else:

“What can I do with my honor points?”

Here are some ideas:

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.

The Darkmoon Faire Got a Facelift. See The New Toys

(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.

Sylvanas’ Legacy

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.

Anyway, if you want to spice your “hellos” and “gratz” with some nice looking graphics, here’s how you do it.

…You just need to write the name of the icon in curly brackets (braces), like this: {Star}, {Circle}, {Diamond}, {Triangle}, {Moon}, {Square}, {Cross}, {Skull}

How to Get Your PvP Gear Fast

October 7, 2014

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.
