Gold Capped: Breaking the glyph wall {WoW}

Aug 20th 2010 12:26PM If you're playing on a very highly populated realm, sadly a lot of the advice here goes straight out the window. Glyphs are a difficult market to make money with on a realm that's "Full" most of the time. I have a Pally scribe on Moon Guard that's making a lot of money, but most of it isn't from glyph sales.

Many glyphs that are required for raiding are selling on the AH for less than 1G and in numbers that are next to impossible to break. The materials side is expensive as hell. Less common glyphs will tend to sell for 5-10G and selling anything for more than 12G is an occasion to bust out fireworks, because you've just hit the lottery.

Granted, I think Moon Guard abides by its own rules anyway. Are a lot of the other "Full" realms like this, or are the markets at least semi sane?

BlizzCon Ticket Status: Sold Out {WoW}

Jun 5th 2010 1:15PM My estimates put the total tickets being sold altogether at approximately 10,000. I'm down to 14k now and almost half the stock is gone.

I thought I recall seeing the number 25,000 floating around for last year's BlizzCon figures. Am I mistaken?

BlizzCon Ticket Status: Sold Out {WoW}

Jun 5th 2010 1:01PM Got in within five seconds. Queue already at 16k+

BlizzCon Ticket Status: Sold out today -- on sale again this Saturday {WoW}

Jun 2nd 2010 10:03PM You guys are lucky. I waited two seconds after the hour, refreshed, put in two tickets, and was just over 15,000th in line. D:

Video game world size compared {WoW}

May 19th 2010 8:48PM I recall seeing another image, using even larger worlds. However, since we're including Daggerfall in the list, despite it being procedurally generated, then its only fair to include the Minecraft world in as well.

The MC author claims that his world (procedurally generated, mind you) is 8x the surface area of the Earth! This EASILY makes it the largest video game world... period.

Are Bloodlust/Heroism drums incoming? {WoW}

Jan 6th 2010 3:03PM You DO know that Engineers already get a miniature Bloodlust on a 1 minute cooldown, right? Yes, its self only but...

Breakfast Topic: What class mechanics have you had to learn to deal with? {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2009 10:20PM I play a rogue for a main, I've never once had a tank complain about me using Tricks on them pre-emptively. I doubt they even notice the icon above their head during the fight.

Though what annoys the ever-loving heck out of me is a tank literally standing stock still after I toss tricks on them. The healer's at full mana, all DPS are at full resources, everyone's ready to go, the tank just stands. Completely. Stock. Still. Naturally they begin moving once Tricks has faded off them and is on CD.

Tanks: If you're grouped with a rogue using Tricks, them putting it on you is a hint: pull! They'll cement your aggro with a few FoK twirls or launching into the single target with everything they have.

Breakfast Topic: Where do you get your meat? {WoW}

Dec 4th 2009 8:10AM Alts, definitely. Though depending on the character, AoE farming is also a fun pasttime.

Grab a large enough pack of creatures and go to town. Borean Tundra seems to be pretty much it for the meat. Though Howling Fjord has some decent selection on Shoveltusk.

Between the Forsaken town (the one on the main rise, not Vengeance Landing) and the burning forest is pretty much the best place to gather Shoveltusk meat. Lots of AoE-able packs. I'd recommend the island with the Tuskarr settlement, but the wolves make fast work of the shoveltusk. Plus you're likely to be cussed out by a questing lowbie if you AoE everything down there. Unless you kill the wolves. Then you're likely to be randomly licked.

WoW 5th Anniversary Giveaway: 5 Razer Naga gaming mice {WoW}

Nov 24th 2009 12:44PM Hey, why not! Nothing ventured, nothing lost! ...or something akin to that.

Plus, my background music makes this post feel lucky! Bal Sagoth makes for luck or so I think!

Pilgrim's Bounty FAQ {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2009 6:46AM You didn't miss anything.

My rogue (orc, by the way - so you KNOW I'm popular tonight) started the event with a cooking skill of 65. I'm now sitting at 351. This is from the event recipes ALONE.

You do not need a cooking skill of 330 to cook everything. You need 280.

By the way, that turkey recipe goes green at 342.
