Mar 25th 2012 7:57AM The scroll is rather straight-forward, what I'd like to know more about, is how the boost works.
I'd hate to find my new lvl 80 with no gold, no professions, no riding skills, no mounts, no bags, and in level 1 gear sitting in Orgrimmar, on a brand new server.
While we're at it, I've had trouble finding systhematic information for cataclysm leveling here. Sure, there's wealth of info, but what I was hoping for were simple, concise guides giving me:
- a spec to use for leveling from 80 (with /run command to paste into wow, preferably),
- recommended glyphs for leveling/starter dungeons
- basic rotation
- preferred stats with rough weights
- gemming/chanting tips
- any factions/areas to prioritize for later gearing
The closest to that ideal was the piece for Hunters. Go papa Frostheim! You da mon!
These would really help any freshly resurrected corpses, like me.
Oct 1st 2010 4:09AM Forgot to write this, but obviously you save a lot of downtime when you can (auto)attack something that gets your skill up but doesn't die easily AND doesn't fight back, forcing you to heal up.
Oct 1st 2010 4:04AM There is a simple trick to doing knuckle sandwitch and master of arms fairly quickly once you're 80.
Go to your preferred vanilla capital and get the vendor-sold, white weapons for lowbies. Go as low as you possibly can, if you can spare a moment you might even take a trip to a starting zone vendor for those amazing level 3, 2.1dps pretties.
Once you got those, go to the Savage Thicket in the Sholozar Basin. Find a cluster of drake eggs, kill off the grown drakes and whelps, strip nekkid, equip your EPOX 2 DPS weapunz, and go whack the drake eggs. They're reasonably high level, and won't die easily, even once you stop missing them, as your weapon damage will be low. You can just sit back as you autoattack, at least until the grown drakes respawn; be prepared to move between eggs more once you're in 300s with your weapon skills, though, or if you don't feel safe enough to strip nekkid in the middle of Sholozar.

I never once had a daily hc run in the last 2 months without at least one person not looting.
Farming old content is also profitable... single run of Stratholme can be 500g from just money drop, add the trash drops, add the blue BoEs that sell fairly well, add disenchants if you got that profession on the toon you go on, and you can make a small fortune since cleaning the place in 20mins isn't that hard, esp. on a hunter with a proper pet. All the more if you got a vendor mount to keep your bags tidy without HSing or riding far to vendor stuff.
Aug 28th 2010 2:57PM While you are right to think ms>os is usually confined to raids and guilds, same rule tends to be applied to all group activities, just with a modification of "need rolls only for the performed roles". In other words, you "need" roll only for the role you play in a given group. If you see something you'd like but it's for tank/dps/heals (strike out one you play from this list) you wait for the concerned class member to roll, and if no need rolls pop you are free to roll need explaining it's for your offspec.

Colin, we can hope, right?
After all, Naxx got a remodel too... Seeing as Kara was really a place that had everything that a new raider needed to learn the ropes...
Tho thinking realistic - nah, they won't have the time.
Aug 23rd 2010 3:42AM While I wholeheartedly agree with ya on the extra classes, I wouldn't really be so sure about the other two examples you gave there mate.
Of course it wouldn't be a "race" per itself, but "adding" brown orcs and taunka wouldn't be nightmarishly hard - the first would just require a new set of texture for the existing orc... one more click at the Barber and you're a brown orc. Taunka would be harder, but when you see the variety the Undead faces come in, I would see that as just one more head/face module for the Tauren. Done & done, the rest is up to RP.
That being said, if you mean't either of these as a totally separate race selection (say as if Murlocs joined the Horde too) then again, you're right.
Aug 19th 2010 6:30AM Easy?
I tried last week. If the toon is on the same account, you get the error message if you try to buy auctions you made on your opposing-faction toon. You will need a help of a guildie or you will need to have a separate account... at least, that is the situation on Steamwheedle Cartel-EU.
At least you can send BoAs directly now.

That's Mesa, in New Mexico.
It's exactly the place in southern barrens, past the Field of Giants, where the plain narrows before the pass leading to the Great Lift - the one which has Razorfen Downs and Kraul on either side.
