World of Warcraft on Private Servers

by Scorpyo on February 27, 2014

Molten

Most players are so called “retail” players. These are players who pay a monthly fee to play World of Warcraft on Blizzard’s servers. Other players prefer to play on “private servers”.

I stopped to play WoW right before Cataclysm was released, after patch 4.0 was released. I didn’t like the change Blizzard made to the game, and it was so terribly buggy that it was impossible for me to play. The game was freezing every ten seconds (no, it is not an expression!).

I went to Age of Conan, that I played a year or so, next Rift for a few months, after that Star Wars the Old Republic for a few weeks, and then I found some interesting private WoW servers. A Burning Crusade server which worked pretty well and had a decent population and later, a Wrath of the Lich King server with very high population: Molten.

But what are those private servers?

Pet or not?

Pet or Not?

Pet or not?

Last time, when I was talking to Nimrasil, we were talking about pets. She loves pets. I don’t care much. I do have many of them, though, and I do think that some of them are cute, but… It is not really something that interests me. 

I have an add-on which is taking a random pet out, and I was speaking about that. 

- Yes, I said, I don’t have it activated on Scorpyo, because she is a Night Elf. 

There were several seconds of silence at the other end. Maybe she was fighting a mob or something?

The Fastest Way to Get Outside of Undercity

Orb of translocation

I like Undercity, but it can be somewhat annoying to get from point A to point B in that city.

Scorpyo made a video that shows you how to find your way around Undercity.

But even with the help of that video, it takes time to get from the portal and to the outside of the city where you can fly freely.

Let me ask you a question: What do you normally do if you’re in the main city, near all the portals, and you’re supposed to go to the zeppelin that will take you to Howling Fjord?

TRID

When Blizzard invented the Real ID, it made me really happy, because that meant I could keep in contact with friends from other realms or even factions.

But, alas, unless you were in a guild with them, you couldn’t share your achievements with them. And friends are often more willing to “grats” you than guildies…

While I was searching for something completely different, I stumbled upon a nice addon that made it possible to share the good news with friends all over Azeroth.

Make Fast Gold with Lucky Charm Bracelets in the Love is in the Air World Event

You can buy a mount and sell it during the Love is in the Air world event, and you can create lucky charm bracelets and trade them for gold – or trade them for love tokens to buy the mount with.

Whether you will focus on questing to get the mount, or you’ll go into bracelet trading, it’s a great help to know where you can farm those bracelets quickly.

I’ve been using this area to farm all my bracelets during this world event, and today I timed myself. I created 78 charms during 15 minutes, corresponding to 312 charms per hours, which again means 31 bracelets and then some.

Currently, I have several level 90s at my farming disposal, each with their own 16 plot farm which I use every day. Sunsong Ranch is a great way to make a lot of gold pretty quick… If you remember to do it every day .

Since I have all professions, I will give you here an idea of how I do, in the hope of inspiring you. You too, Nim!

A very funny video about the most common classes and their stereotypes. We find the paladin, and his bubbles, the rogue, the mage, the priest, the hunter and many others.

We all get the knife in this video. Extremely good!

Normal or PvP ?

When you start playing, you don’t know the servers from each other. You don’t necessarily know which one has good reputation, which has a bad reputation. It will demand that you go on Google and check the different servers and that will be a lot of work for a less than useful result.

One of the things that is important, though, is whether you want to play on a Normal — PvE– PvP or Role Playing Server.

And what does all that mean? What are the differences between these servers?

Now, which of your characters have any copper ore?

You’re in desperate need of some, and the prices in the auction house are through the roof. You know that one of your chars mined a lot of copper when she was lvl 15, but you don’t remember who it was.

Carbonite can help you find it.

Oh, sorry… I didn’t see that you just got an achievement for reaching level 90.

Oh? Hello! No, I didn’t see you come online. I was just crafting 100 bolts of cloth…

Have you ever been in similar situations?
