So we’re back!
We stopped in May 2015, about 18 months ago and we thought, that this time, we wouldn’t come back. It was our second big break from WoW (our first was with Cataclysm, when we left 2.5 years). In the meantime, we were on Neverwinter for a while (too buggy, so we stopped), we came back to Rift for… about two days (boring and nonexistent support), we went to a private Lich King server, Dalaran-WoW, but also here, there were nonexistent support, so we were on Tera for a while. Nice game, funny, nice graphic. We had several characters on top level, nice and swift combat mode, but every time you had a question, you had to wait five days for an answer. Support was nice, though.
Website reviewed: Dynasty’s Booster
Dynasty offers four add ons: A leveling guide (Booster), a talent building guide (Edge), a key bind and macros add-on (Impulse) and a gold add on (Tycoon). We have tested all these products and here is our review of one of them, Booster, the leveling guide.
There is an updated review of Edge here. Our review of the two other products, Impulse and Tycoon are from the old version and are obsolete. We are making new reviews right now.
This review is about the leveling guide 1-100, Booster.
(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.
Website reviewed: Dynasty’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”
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:
(05/02-2014) – A 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.
(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!
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.
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.
