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

by Scorpyo on 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 always so! iLevel doesn’t do it for skills anyway, and  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.

There is now, place for a bit of PvE gear in battleground, but very little and even though there is now a base resilience of 65%, some players (for example paladins or any other tank) will have a big advantage in keeping stacking resilience. Now more than ever. Same thing with healers.

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.

World of Warcraft on Private Servers

February 27, 2014

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.

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.
