World of Warcraft has been around for a really long time now. While the gameplay, graphics, and story have enhanced over time, the UI has not changed nearly as much. Some things that may seem like they should be obvious menu items are only accessible via addons. Addons in World of Warcraft are essentially mods that give you additional menu options and visuals. Some are small, and mostly used for organizing items or menus, while others will give you more options in combat! Below are some of the best addons for both old and new players. The majority of these can be downloaded through Curse.
Some people have made arguments that quest blues can sometimes be more powerful than heirlooms, especially with sockets. I'm not convinced. The simple fact that you never have to even look at quest rewards will save a non-insignificant amount of time over the course of leveling. Also of consideration is the value of enchanted gear never having to be re-enchanted.
Hey Bunnycuddle, big fan of your approach to gold making. Due to recent drop in obliterum market prices i have started exploring the best flipping possibilities out there. I found one very interesting phenomena that proved to be very profitable on my server. Basically due to it being least desirable gem Versatile maelstrom sapphire tends to drop in price on AH well under 160g per piece, and while oblierated it gives 16 ash in return. I think this is something you could possibly research in your future post and give a little bit more in depth analysis.
Nov 14 social questions, and a few others Hello! so i played wow 7 years ago, and remember it being really social. People would chat or answer questions. But after restarting a few days ago I've gone from lvl 1 to lvl 23 without getting a single reply to the odd question i've had. i'm not overdoing it or anything.. Do people not use the general chat at all? Is the game more group oriented now? Have i missed some setting? other than that - what does the well rested thing mean, and should I be using 2 pets for my hunter. Thanks for the help! OxfordEichi5 Nov 14
The NPC scan and NPC alert method is an awesome way to build a stock of rare BOE items simply because you don't really have to try. By installing NPC scan and NPC alerts, you can literally just fly over anywhere and be alerted when you pass a rare spawn. As we all know, rare spawn loot tends to have higher item vales, as not everyone is able to consistently farm them. Some NPC's, especially those in outlands have those higher item values when compared to the rest of the world. As a goldmaking method I just everyone should be doing this. It only requires you download two addons and you can get access to important NPC,s that you would otherwise never knew existed. The opportunities are endless, I would generally never play without these cool addons. Realy cool.
If you can Solo an instance, you have two options. The first is to take the place apart yourself and sell all the drops on the Auction House. For level 80 characters, Scarlet Monastery, Uldaman, and other mid-level instances are easily soloable, and are a very popular source of cloth and marketable blue and green items. If you're reasonably well-geared, and feeling more adventurous, Scholomance and Stratholme are also soloable, and can be extremely lucrative as a source of auctionable items.
Alchemy is a great profession for gold-making as the main outputs are consumed on use, this means that there will always be demand for new potions and flasks. The old world recipes are also very profitable. Sadly I don’t have Legion alchemy so I can’t personally help you. The best guide I was able to find on the internet is this video guide by Ninja Kuma.
Heirlooms. At the bare minimum you make sure all the armor pieces upgraded to 110, since this is the lion's share of your experience increase. Neck and Ring upgrades are secondary, but still important due to being able to enchant them. Trinkets can't be enchanted, but you'll want them at max as well, if only to save time by not having to worry about replacing them as you level.
Once you get to about 200g, the theoretical limit of your profit virtually disappears. You now have enough money to start mass buying and reselling those players' goods who undercut everything by an extreme amount. Enchant mats are still a very good focus during this period, especially essences and crystals. You can now afford to buy several maelstrom and abyss crystals and wait until prices fluctuate to resell for a profit. A major strategy you can begin to employ is the multi-character trading and auctioning. If you come across 5 abyss crystals, get onto one character during peak hours and advertise a price 25-50% higher than average. When no one responds to this, quickly switch to another toon and offer the same 5 crystals for 10% lower than before. This will help to raise the median price because other sellers see what they may be able to get for their good. While they are cancelling and reposting, take this time to undercut their new prices, which is now more than you ever could have gotten before when prices were low. If you master this with BoE epics or more rare items, then you can make differences of thousands of gold.
For reference, my previous best time abusing Method-0 in 7.3.5 was 32.4 hours(as show in the old thread). A difference of just over 8 hours; which isn't all that bad, all things considered. And I believe I made several errors along the way, which could be cleaned up in future runs. I believe that that gap could be significantly closed by using a monk's bonus, but I hate playing monk...so...yeah. YMMV
TSM has a very steep learning curve, as it is a total profession framework. It does not hold your hand, and requires a lot of setup. Luckily you can import settings from other players and there are a ton of settings out there. I have published most of my settings in my pastebin here. You can also check out Sheyrahs. If you want to learn it from the ground up I suggest one of the following guides: PhatLewts, Sheyrah, WTBGold.
For Alliance it's Lok'Modan, Redridge, Darkshore, Felwood, Stranglethorn (both parts), Plaguelands. Somewhere between 3 - 3.5 of these get you to 60 in like a 16 hours /played, if you queue for dungeons at the same time. I recommend dropping everything at 45 and going to Darkshore-Felwood if you didn't do them yet - they are literally the fastest levelling zones in the game right now, maybe only trumped by Silverpine.
At Level 38, you unlock an additional pet ability. The ability you unlock depends on the spec of your pet. Ferocity pets gain Primal Rage, which is a Bloodlust/ Heroism effect that increases the Haste of you and all party members by 30% for 40 seconds. Tenacity pets gain Survival of the Fittest which reduces you and your pet's damage taken by 20% for 6 seconds on a 3-minute cooldown. Cunning pets gain Master's Call which removes all movement-impairing effects from your pet and a friendly target, and makes them immune to movement-impairing effects for 4 seconds. The friendly target can be you. It has a 45-second cooldown.
Enchanting is a crafting profession that allows you to enchant gear with stat increases. It also allows you to disenchant gear for crafting materials. Enchanting uses crafting materials that can only be obtained from disenchanting gear. This means the only source is either crafting yourself or buying from other players. As the profession mostly revolves around stat increases only the legion recipes are relevant. Enchanting is also a great source of obliterum. The other ways to make gold with the profession is crafting and selling enchants and doing the enchanting shuffle.
With a bit of upfront time investment, and luck, you can kickstart your transmog business. What I recommend is to spend 6-8 hours, or however many you can stomach, farming ZF, WC, and RFK over the course of a week. This should net you a few hundred items of value to list on the AH. Over the coming weeks and months, spend at least one hour per week, revisiting one of these dungeons, or branch out into other classic dungeons.
A farm that I myself made drastically popular about 2 years ago. This farm is a simple pet and transmog spot that requires you to pull the entire wailing carverns instance. Besides how it sounds, this farm is VERY easy going and can literally be done while you watch something else entirely. (netflix maybe?) While it's not as potent as it used to be, it still has some merit in it, especially if your server is low on the deviate hatchling pet. While it does take some time to drop, I can usually average a deviate hatchling every 30 minutes or so. However, since I released the video on it, the price of the pet has dropped wildly.
On January 30, 2018 Battle for Azeroth was made available for preorder, coming with the unlocking of the four first allied races. With the announcement of the Collector's Edition and release date for Battle for Azeroth on April 5, 2018, Legion was the first expansion to be offered for free with a preorder. Battle for Azeroth is the first expansion to launch in the Americas, Europe, Taiwan, Korea, and Australia/New Zealand at the same time. Battle for Azeroth became the fastest-selling World of Warcraft expansion ever.
Profit is only created if you make sure your costs are less than your earnings. This is not so much an issue for gatherers who simply trade in some time and effort to gain their wares, but for production professions, this must be kept in mind. Many high-end items that sell well require materials that cannot be provided by the gathering profession normally paired with your production profession. To craft these items, purchasing the raw material from the AH or another player becomes necessary. You must keep record of how much you spent to obtain these materials, or else you may price the finished product inaccurately, either too low that you sell it at a loss, or too high that you can't sell it all.
Simply put, its about expectations. Transmog is not a get rich quick scheme. You won't wake up the next day to a mailbox full of gold on day one, two or three. For most of us, it will take months to get to a point where we have to refresh our mailbox to get to the rest of the gold. Our expectations are high, and the initial results are rarely ever in the same ballpark. A few days or weeks of less than stellar results and we give up, because we lack patience. If you want/need gold now, transmog is not the solution.
-PvP- Completely broken for some classes and I mean broken going from both sides of the spectrum, from classes destroying everyone, to classes that can't even kill another player. It's fairly common for a weak class to lose to a powerful class even if the weak class outgears them by 50+ ilvls. That's how broken PvP is and Blizzard doesn't seem to know what to do to fix it other than do blanket damage nerfs/buffs as those are the only changes we've seen.
Anything that can be answered by reading the recent discussions on the subreddit, has a yes/no response or can be looked up on sites in the community resources should not be posted in a thread of its own. Questions such as 'What is this worth?', 'Did I make a mistake?', 'What do I do with XYZ?' or 'Should I buy/sell this?' will be directed to the Daily Questions sticky.
