Patch 4.2: Stats for Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest revealed {WoW}

May 15th 2011 2:03AM Good luck with that.

Patch 4.2: Stats for Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest revealed {WoW}

May 15th 2011 2:02AM Again, I'd hate to burst your bubble but any guild who "kills a few bosses" in BWD and BoT this late in an expansion is highly unlikely to be able to finish this questline. Legendaries are meant to be for the top-end raiders only. If you're a casual raider, just be satisfied that you even get to see the content, content that you are only able to see because Blizzard nerfs the encounters down to your level.

Gold Capped: Buy low, sell high {WoW}

Apr 28th 2011 2:30PM Just to add to the concepts in this article, buying and reselling or "flipping" goods has a certain risk (where risk is simply the variance of profits) attached to it. If you want to try this out and see if you can make more money here than in professions then I would suggest trying the low risk goods first before trying to hit the jackpot with big ticket items.

Low risk = ores, herbs, skins, enchanting mats, uncut gems
Medium risk = flasks, cut gems, enchants, belt buckles, spellthreads, embossments, maelstrom crystals
high risk = BOE epics, pets, mounts

Also, I cannot stress step 1: Know your product enough. Looking at the Auctioneer average price is not enough. I know people who will employ a pump and dump strategy to artificially inflate the price so their posted goods will look "cheap" (below average price). The best way to avoid falling for this would be to specialize in a specific item/group of items in the market and sticking to those.

Gold Capped: Earning gold for absolute beginners {WoW}

Apr 21st 2011 3:16PM If you don't have much gold to start with then the best way to go about getting gold is to farm. Mining + Herbalism is a sure fire way to earn risk free income. Once you have enough money, then you stop working for money and let your money work for you. It's just like real life. At first you have to work to earn a big enough bankroll then you can start investing and make a living off your savings.

The Light and How to Swing It: Choosing holy paladin major glyphs {WoW}

Apr 18th 2011 12:38AM Im guessing to get Pursuit of Justice which gives bonus movespeed. I use a 33/4/3 build which is the same as above except with 2 points in Paragon of Virtue, 1 point in Blessed Life, and 1 point in Eternal Glory. I don't put points in Pursuit, only 1 point in Imp Judgment and only 1 point in Last Word. Movement speed is nice but I really like being able to use Hand of Sacrifice which is an underrated external cooldown imo. I don't like the idea of going 2/2 in Eternal Glory and 2/2 in Last Word since more often than not I'm using LoD as my main HoPo heal which reduces the effectiveness of WoG talents. But if you're mainly tank healing then going 2/2 in both WoG talents may be a better choice for you.

Apr 17th 2011 11:34PM What's your take on Glyph of Lay on Hands. I know it's incredibly situational but if I find that I'm not having any mana problems do you think that it's a valid choice?

"Overly defensive and overly critical at the same time over an overused meme?

That's cute, son."

Do you even know what overly defensive or overly critical even mean? I'm not exactly sitting here frothing at the mouth. And what's with the hostility?

L2read. Look at the questions that were asked before mine. 2 out of 3 are not related to wow. i.e: What's up with Ian Jolly? and What's the grossest thing you've ever eaten?

@SR and Drakkenfyre

You're calling me a troll because I asked something that I want answered. News Flash: We aren't in Soviet Russia, we can ask whatever we want as long as it's within the boundaries of good taste (i.e no discrimination etc..). If I think the meme is funny I should be able to use it and if you don't like it then go [do some nasty things to] yourself.
