I've got to say this Azeroth Advisor thing is pretty lame... Just tried a few report and here are some interesting tidbits:- The newsletter was titled "So you just hit 70...", although I hit 70 months ago. I have a few exalted reps (like netherwing), which probably wouldn't be on a newly minted 70.- It suggests that I should go PvP and Arena, although I have a bunch of PvP and Arena epics already- It includes Quel'Danas in recommended questing areas, while I am exalted with them- It suggests I PvP with a two-hander, something enhancement shaman never do anymore- It recommends Mechanar as an instance, and suggests an ideal group... that wouldn't include my character.GG

Well as its not technically launched yet I guess these are things they are ironing out? I recall Schilling saying that there were some bugs that needed to be addressed which is why they are holding out. Of course it wasn't in the same sentence he called Schramm's comments were "blinkered and narrow-minded" referring to last weeks post on Wowinsider. Once I heard Curt say that I knew old Mikey would try and snag an interview with someone else from 38. Heh.Just playing and digging. All good :PNot tested this out myself but I've been playing WoW since the early days and know Azeroth and Outland inside out. I might consider it as an additional source of Northrend intel if it proves to be of any use but will wait for the official launch before trying.

Yeah I was essentially replying to this:"but I have not spoken with anyone yet that has tried the product that didn't just say "Wow, that is really cool, that is very impressive. I can't believe you guys have done this, because it's super high quality and interesting product that allows me to utilize my time better."I guess if he doesn't speak to people who dislike the product that's still true. Nevertheless, while the concept may be cool, the execution is not impressive, it's not super high quality, and it does not allow me to utilize my time better.I look forward to improvements, although I guess they will have to remake everything for 3.0. Still, a lot of the content feels like a template, for example "The best PvE set for $your_spec is $pve_set. The $helm_piece is great, as is the $bracers." It didn't feel intelligent, it didn't feel like my gear was even in consideration. All suggestions are very generic and don't seem to take into account your reputations, skills, etc.

"This article was generated based on the most recent information from Blizzard's Armory website. In rare cases it may be slightly out of date.As some information used in the normal Azeroth Advisor is not available from the Armory, article customization will be better in the full version using the Azeroth Advisor Uploader."I got all the same recommendations you did, and I'm a 70 Shaman. So I dug around on the newsletter and found that little chunk of text. Apparently it gathers information via a add-on that you have running while you play, and until you've had that going for a bit, the data it uses is more generic. Hope that helps.
