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?

Share Your Achievements and More with Your Real ID Friends and Guildies


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

Lucky charms farming

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.

These bracelets can be traded for gold. Look out for buyers on the Trade channel. I know that some buyers will pay 25 gold per bracelet. This would turn out to be 775 gold per hour, which isn’t a fortune, but then again, it’s easy money, and you can farm the charms while you’re waiting in queue for a battleground.

Keep Track of Your Inventory and Professions with Carbonite Addon (part 5)


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.

The Carbonite Addon is also useful, if you want to check the enchants your enchanter can make, while you’re online with your jewel-crafter.

You can even check the last content you saw in the guild bank…

These are one of the many useful functions in Carbonite that I love.

And they are so easy to reach. You just need to right click on the C next to your minimap, choose “Show Warehouse” and then click “All” at the top and do a search for the item you want to find.

As you can see, you can even link to professions and share them in chat.

Keep Your Chat Box Clean

Chat settingsOh, 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?

I know that I have. Many times. Well, until last night those were very familiar situations for me.

Last night Scorpyo gave me a good tip to how I could move loots and similar text from the chat box to their own tab. So here goes…

Trivial Pursuit World of Warcraft Edition Review – For Lore Experts Only?

World of warcraft trivial pursuit

I’ve enjoyed many a good game of Trivial Pursuit when the first edition came out 25 years or so ago… So when I discovered that there now is a World of Warcraft edition, it immediately grabbed my attention.

If you’ve heard about it, you’ve probably asked yourself some questions about the quality of the game, and how much fun it is. Stuff like that. So I did some research and discovered some interesting facts.

Six Categories – Just Like the Original Game

The World of Warcraft edition covers six categories, just like the original game, and these are: Geography (Locations), Player Characters, Lore, Loot (Items), Enemies, Encounters.

You get a “cheese” to put in your “cheese holder,” just like you did in the old game.
