Legendary Recycles--Making use of out dated Legendaries

You worked too hard to throw it out, you cant transmog it, all you can do is sit outside on it and feel 'proud' about having it. 

They should really consider letting us display them in garrisons or something!

To the point though.  Blizzard has provided a insane way to relive the epiciness of these hard fought items again. Its called Timewalking!

Putting this out there, the original epics from Vanilla are still useless outside of being cool.  (Unless your a tank with a love of threat filled swords).

Thunderfury (60)

(Thank you to Salivan-Wyrmrest Accord US)

This one is low level and strictly suggested for tanks.  I have seen people use it all the way up till Cata because of the massive threat generation to it.  I personally wont use it in the wrath Timewalkings but I can see it being handy in BC! 

Keep in mind, this one will require hours of farming MC and thorium to get.  Not for the faint of heart!

Sulfuras (60)

(Thank you to Salivan-Wyrmrest Accord US)

Useless by far.  Im sorry but the effect cannot save it.  Even the Naxx weapons out bid this awesome piece.  Timewalking cant redeem him.  Not for the current selections.

The Eye (Raid) Legendaries (70)

These are far and wide but last 15 minutes.  So if you want to fight to have your pick of weapon, they might last you a whole of one queue.  Perfect for the BC timewalkings. (I guess)

Warglaives (70)

A pain to get both but worth it.  These are the most widely known because theres always someone sitting out in the blindfold, shirtless, and carrying these.  Its like they been begging for Legion since BC!

Anyway, these aren't too helpful in the Wrath Timewalking but toss a chant on them and rogues or monks can relive the epiciness of slashing goodness! 

Thori'dal (70)

Hunters feel the love.  Though the most epic part of the bow is no longer a big deal, its still pretty cool to have out.  Sadly, if the stats on it aren't your style its no different from your other weapon after the scale down and its use cant be put up into Wrath Timewalking.

Shadowmourne (80)

I have seen this one in action, its badass.  I watched my boyfriends dps triple with this one and it really was something.  The fact that you can use it for each Timewalking just adds to the joy of it.

Highly recommend for dks (even if your duel wielding), warriors, pallies, ect.

Val'anyr (80)

Great for most healers, I recommend for anyone using solid single target heals such as pallies.  I can even see it being useful to druids.  The ability creates shields for the cost of a few int.  I really do recommend trying it out.

Dragonwrath (85)

I only suggest this highly for dps but if you use the best gems, you might could put it to great use as a healer too.  Short of doing the Eye, its your best choice for a legendary.

Fangs of the Father (85)

Rogues get your wings back, these are back in style!  Kickass style with killer effects, I recommend these 100% and they carry through every Timewalking.

Legendary Cloaks (90)

Oh we all remember these beauties.  Useless at 91 when the proc and wings disappeared, take them for a spin again as they proc up a storm and remind you why you spent the entire expac trying to get them.

Legendary Rings (100)

Current and deadly.  I've heard a lot of people say the effect is nerfed when scaled down but the proc still makes it worth it.  Besides, its the top ring, are you really running without it?

That's all for now my friends!  Till next we meet!

Tech Issues: Update

My computer is still messed up sadly, but i'm still trying to post some stuff.

Battle Pets are abit of a issue since I cant touch the screenshots so it'll be waiting..  But I am writing the articles so they can be posted right away when their back up!

I've managed to get all of the past Weds post covered though, even the back dates so I hope you'll enjoy!

--God help me, im glad I got to 100 before this happened... Hopefully i'll get my computer back before 200..Im nearly to 150 post totaled ready to post. ---

Also glad I kept SELFIE Friday post up and scheduled... All the way to November.

For those that remember my other post on what to do with SELFIE Friday after I finish the achievement in 2016 and what I should post in its place.  I've got a few emails but sadly I just cant get enough SELFIE/Screenies to cover it after that point so I cant keep it running.  So..  Please, more ideas!  I plan to put it up for a vote if I can get more so please keep poking at me!

I hope to see yall again soon!

Tarr the Terrible's Adventure

You'll need two Undead.  But I have two methods.  This one works okay but you may need one attack off the leveling pet.

Restless Shade and Infected Squirrel. 

Start with your 9 round dot, heal every 2 shocks.

With Bucky there you'll want to Dot with mushrooms and then bite bite.  Toss out the explode after you go down.

Use a 10+ pet that can revive or a 15+ leveling pet. 

This method is A good bit more reliable with a plushie for me.
Take your creepy crate and start by DoTing with Doom.  Then Agony and Go for a AoEing storm.
Switch out.
DoT him up with your first two and just switch in the plushie till your crate can redo Doom and Bonestorm.
If you choose to keep spamming Barrage, then just fly or switch during large hitting attacks.
Just rinse and repeat. 
If you switch Death and Decay for Darkness and Lift Off with Strike, you'll find this a great team to use with leveling pets too. 
Thanks yall!

Brewfest 2015

I don’t usually do these but because I’m having computer issues I have issues with writing my articles…  So, this is one I could do without pictures! 
This is also me trying to not fall too behind in my content posting-I know views suffer for it!  So please continue to be patient with me, i'll try and post more!  :D


For this post I’ll mainly be explaining briefly with hints, tricks, etc.



Ram Racing:


Idea is easy.  Don’t kill the ram and get 2 coins per barrel delivered. 


Hints:  Hit the apple barrels to clear fatigue stacks and as such keep yourself going at the FASTEST speed possible!

The one at the fork in the road is a MUST hit but you can choose to hit the one in town or at the midpoint to keep it from being a close shave.  I prefer the midpoint and the fork for mine (On Ally Side) and just keep it in the red.




Preach for the Brewers:


This one is easy with a 4 minute limit as well but nerfs have made it MUCH easier than before.  All you have to do is run by the banners in Ironforge/Orgimmar to promote one of the brewers.


Take a Break:  While in older days you had to return on the ram to finish, you now only have to be on the ram to promote, once you’ve hit everywhere, just dismount and fly back!  You don’t even have to turn in 4 minutes or less either!


Hint:  Know the clicks.  I highly suggest keeping in the yellow the whole time and being very careful with stacks.  I find a click every 3 seconds or so will keep it steady in the color while rapid clicks switch it faster.  You shouldn’t hit 100 before hitting everywhere if you keep it steady and you won’t have to alternate between speed and a trot (or worse, crawl).



Bonk the Robot:


Grab a free brew off the table, aim at the robot by turning towards it, and drink.  It’ll throw it for you!  Easy...  Just make sure ya aim.



Invasion of the Black Dwarves!


Brewfest is under attack!  Take the Bonking practice and use it to repel the dwarves!


There will randomly be mugs of brew out to grab.  Get them, drink them, spinning into the dwarves!


This event pops hourly I believe.  You don’t have to join the get the gear, but ya look like an ass if ya don’t try to help!




A queue with daily rewards where you’ll kill a boss for currently 670 trinkets.  The barrel you’ll get will have a chance at mounts, a 670 mace, and coins.


For the fight you’ll quietly AoE down adds, melee avoid getting disarmed, and healers watching for a 7 second stun that can hit any player including you and the tank!  Plus a 5 second one.  Oh... And mole machines toss you abit.  Enjoy!





Well, that’s all the dailies!  Now the quest.



Pink Elekks!


Grab your beer googles (or a lot of beer) and take advantage of those mage ports (or your Shrine/Ashran ports!) and hit Darn, Exodor, and Stormwind!  Objective?  Catch the pink elephants from Dumbo’s dreams!


Tip:  There is a portal next to hellfire one in Darn and Exodor that connects the two...  Why wait on the boat? 


Tip:  Save Stormwind for last, then you can take a fun drunk trip down the tram tunnel!  The tram is ALWAYS fun when your drunk and dancing!!


This quest awards 40 coins but no longer a pet it seems.  The pet is now 200 coins!







Yap, get your Purple stein if you didn’t in the last few years they’ve been offering that color…



Ram Racing PreQuest:


Trot, Gallop, Cancer.  For 8 seconds.  Just keep the stead 3 second clicks for each one.  I suggest starting slow then going up, but meh.  It’s your choice.


After this you’ll learn the course for barrel runs where you get 4 barrels in 4 minutes, No coins per barrel.  Same Idea though.






It does not linger, it runs.  So you get drunk and try to catch them with nets!  These you still get as pets though.  No coins though.


Direbrew-Once a Year Barrel

Repeatable yearly on everyone, gives 40 coins and must be looted of the bosses corpse.  Done!






There is TOO MUCH to get on one character alone!  If you have none of it, you’ll be hard pressed if you use only one character.


Realistically… You can get 200 coins in about 2-3 days if you do everything to the best of your ability.   So I suggest you take some alts and work on get 2-3 items per character to split it up.  If you have an abundance of alts, get one per alt instead and you’ll have them all in two days!


If you need achievements:  Get the hat, chest, and boots on ONE character, you can’t send those.  Now, you can’t blame me if you do that...





Disturbing the Peace

Go to Dal, get smashed (it’ll tell you you’re completely smashed), /dance WHILE wearing the three brewfest items that will take 350 coins to get.  You CAN NOT use the goggles to be drunk because there is a hat.  The where does not matter either.


Almost Blind Luck

Get a mage or priest friend to help you safely fall (you have to land to get the achievement) and wear your beer goggles.  Done!



Brew of the Year

This one will take a year to do, naturally.  Get a membership to the Brew club via vendor and then sample the brews they send monthly in the mail!  Easy as that but not required for the Title.


Brew of the Month

Goes hand in hand with above, you get it for joining the club!


Strange Brew and The Brewfest Diet

Two different Achievements but they are the same thing.  Buy the listed foods and brew and down them for the achievement(s).  All sold by the local vendors of brewfest!


Does your Wolpertinger Linger?


Do the quest to get your pet and boom!  Easy as that.  Quest listed above!


Have Keg, Will Travel

Get a mount from the daily boss kill or just buy the hops to make your mount brewfest-y!



Kill the holiday boss, Direbrew!  You probably did that already.


Down with the Dark Iron!

You’ll get this for doing the daily to collect the cog from the invasion, as listed above!




Well, I know it was brief but I hope yall enjoyed and will be Brew Masters soon!

Techincal Issues

Hey yall,

As all my WoW friends and more loyal blog followers saw:  I haven't been doing half the post.  In fact, all the ones that have been going up since the last Green Fire Post are scheduled.

I had a issue where my computer kept turning off...  And then it suddenly stopped turning on at ALL.  Turns out my 4 fans ALL stopped running at once, so it over heats before it even gets to the desktop.

Because of this, I cant update...

Since then I do have access to a laptop so im attempt to write the blog post so I can fully post and backdate everything as soon as im up and running again (which may not be till October, the only place nearby to get parts had to order and fucked up and got me the wrong thing...Fans are in no way or shape a power cord, ram stick, or motherboard...I wish I was joking) 

I am attempting to play WoW abit but this laptop cant handle it so I barely get to check my garrisons. 

Since its so choppy, I also cant take screenshots or videos for the blog making it hard to do anything but simple guides and rants. 

Thank you for being patient and asking about me in emails.  The blog isn't done, im going to keep posting, its all good!

I'll also be working on a few of the requests that I can too, and may start posting them just to keep from falling too far behind!

Thank you all again, I look forward to continuing my post with my computer running in tip-top-shape!  :D

Bordin Steadyfist Big Adventure

Taking a trip back to Cata, This Deepholme favorite was no match!

Getting abit of exp off the deal, use a 20+ level pet and your trusty Kiss of death.

As you can tell, I didn't heal after because I didn't loose a single pet.

Go in, kissing down.  If you used a leveling pet with beast attacks, bring that in to eat the bug, and then finish it off.

Again, plushie doesn't have to be used-just has to be in party-so its no big deal.

If you want to do this for just exp, just replace plushie with a pet that can take a hit and survive. 

Easy, done, boom!

And that's all for this week!

Guide to PvP (For PvE'ers or Newer Players)

PvP is a part of WoW; even PvE’ers must suffer the trails of PvP for quest, legendries, and even weeklies.  So when I was asked for a PvE-Friendly Guide to PvP… Well, how could I say no?


The first thing to remember is that PvP isn’t a BAD thing.  In fact, it’s VERY fun!  But having an understanding will help you.


First off:  I want to point out that this guide is basics.  Things to help those who are new to PvP have the most basic understanding.  This won’t explain every BG but at least it’ll give you a better idea!




Understanding Roles:


Tanks:  Depending on the BG, your use will vary.   In some you can be used to hold a “boss” such as AV.  Others, the flag carrier, Warsong Gulch.  And outside of these, you’re perfect for defending positions.  Most tanks do decent damage but nothing compared to a dps, so always try to play to your skills as defense. 


On a side note:  I highly recommend PvPing as a tank if you’re new to it.  You’re hard to kill, have decent AoE for when you’re swarmed, and it gives you an excuse to hang around and defend rather than zerg in a place you don’t know!


Healers:  An unforgiving task in PvP, you will be the first to get swarmed and are considered the biggest threat by any PvP'er worth their salt.  This being said, don’t try to kill.  Make yourself valuable by healing, buffing, and running with the group.  In some BGs you’ll find yourself useful in boss fights or by keeping flag carriers up, but mainly you’ll want to stay with a group of people and make sure they know you’re healing.  Even though a real PvP’er will kill you first, any team mate with a brain will want to keep you safe!  Defend or zerg as you prefer, but always keep an eye on your own health bar.


Side note:  AoE has a time and place.  If 6 people are being swarmed at a time, your AoE will be too weak to do ANY GOOD.  Better to save 3 then let all of them die.  Unlike PvE, there’s no tank to gather “adds”, this is a group of squishy tanks and you’re a solo heal.  That’s the mentality ya wanna keep.


DPS:  Kill.  Defend.  Zerg.  You do it all.  Your main goal is to protect any healers in range (assuming their actually healing and not dpsing), help get flags/cap bases, and even defend a point if needed.  If there is no tank to carry a flag, a non-clothie with speed boost should take it (Sorry mages)!  If something needs defending, make sure it looks defended!  Have bandages, mage food, and cookies at the ready.  In fact, play this like your questing:  that means CDs at the ready.



Know the BG


This is a given.  Have SOME idea to the BG you’re in.  Mainly, in the goal.  Do you need to get flags?  Protect a boss leader?  Defend bases?


Have some idea or you’ll be doing nothing but feeding mindlessly. 


There are plenty of blogs (possibly soon even this one), that can help you.  Or you can just ask guildies. 


As always, the golden rule is don’t be alone.



Be Ready for a Shit Storm


PvP is like trade chat.  People can be nice and helpful or they can be cold, stupid, and useless.  That means words worse the noob (and ALL its spellings) will fly. 


Don’t follow the instructions either… There are always people that will “Think” they know what they’re doing and try to tell the group what to do.  Such as the moron who says “Zerg the boss” in AV, rather than taking down resources to weaken said boss…  This is also why you should have an idea before going in.


Don’t take offense to anything said, don’t comment back to them, and don’t get distracted by it.  There’s always 1 or 2 who sit and do nothing the whole time so they can bitch and troll the chat.  Report and move on.  99% of the time, reporting for language will work and really clean up your chat box!



Attempt to Gear


Currently, your gear gets scaled, but that’s not saying much!  You should still try to pick up abit of PvP gear with that honor your getting-especially if you’re going to be there for awhile.  It benefits you since it gets a higher ilvl rise and it helps the group since you can do more!


Don’t be a Loner


I always say this, but don’t go alone!  PvP is much more fun and safer when ya go with others.  Why?  You’re more likely to stay together, know each other’s play style, and ya got someone on your side during the shit storms that ensue when PvP'ers blame the PvE’ers for ruining their games.


Even I go with friends when given the chance.  We like to pick and defend during most BGs since we can coordinate.  Even when the group sucks, that 3-4 people looking after the flag can still keep the win.




Lone players are easy prey, try to keep with 2-3 other people when defending or going for caps.


Protect the healers.  They heal!


CDs are your friend.  So are those healing pots/cookies/bandages/speed pots…


Think of BGs as if they were PuGs:  Assume no one has any idea, no food, no pots, no gear, just a troll or noob in the waiting.  This helps you keep a mentality that expects fail but pushes for the win.  It also helps you remember to stay out of Barren ch-I mean the BG chat!


Call INCs.  If you see someone sneaking into the base or heading for the cap-even if it’s well defended and it’s on the one-call it.  You never know when a stealth is right behind.


And that’s my advice!  I hope yall enjoy the blog and can put some of the info to use.

the WTF?! Challenge

Okay..  wth Blizz?!  These are like a suicidal child's favorite 'toy'...  And you make them giant and put them on sticks.  Whhhyyy?!

Is there a point?  Yes.  Every month from here on im gonna take a wtf thing in WoW and post it for Mondays!  Just another thing to catch people attention.  I'll be looking at references, toys, text, weapons/armor, and even areas! 

Just the things that make you cringe, turn your head like a Owl, or make you slightly unnerved.  Oh yes my friends.  I mean the tentacle fetish too.  Ya feeling 'chilly' yet?  Cuz I am!

This is just another thing to celebrate our 100 post and hopefully bring us to 200 soon!

Big Adventure Brightblade

This is probably one of the hardest fights!  ESPECIALLY WITH PLUSHIE!  So fill in as you see fit outside of plushie achievement... But this is the only fight I had to go full suggestion on.


Hug, Nap, Itchin for a Stichin

Ancient (Singing Sunflower makes a perfect sub as well.  Perhaps even one of the carrots)

Shield, Regrowth, Photosynthesis

Whelpling (I use the one from anniversary, but there is a look a like with same attacks in Dustwallow)

Tail Whip, Scorched Earth, Fly-Off

Round 1:  Plushie


Round two Switch to Ancient

2 (Regrowth)
3 (Photosynthesis)
1 (Shield)

Round 13:  Switch to Plushie

R14 Pass

R15 Pass

R16 Switch to Whelp

2 (Scorched Earth)

This point on, whip till one of you die.

Bring in Ancient to mop up, repeating 2,3,1,1,1,1 Pattern.


I've tried this several times and its pretty accurate (with the team I used atleast).  If there are some extra crits on either part it will affect the needed rotation (a given) but for the most part its a solid group for the job at hand.

I hope yall have a similar experience and find this useful!

Observing 9/11

I know this is usually the day I do SELFIES, but for most of my viewers we know this as a tragic day in history that is still fresh in all of our minds.

In honor of all the souls who lost their lives in the towers, in the war that followed, and the people who still mourn the passing of these lost love ones i'd rather ask everyone take a moment of silence.  Not for me, but for them.

Thank you for your understanding, I hope you all have a blessed day.

Frequently asked Questions by newer players, returning players, and new 100s

I’d be lying if I said this was a joke post.  But I get questions here, in game, on forums, everywhere.  And some might seem stupid, but honestly we’ve all been there.  Everyone starts somewhere, so I always answer to the best of my ability.  I’ve even told people to look at certain articles on WoWHead, Icy Veins, and here.  But some questions I see more than not.


I’d like to point out there are about In-Game things, not about the blog.  And please, if you see someone asking questions like this, be patient:  Even an older player might not realize some of this.  Just remember when you were new and needed help.



 Where did you get that ring? 

This usually refers to the Dread Pirate Ring, an heirloom.  I got it A LOT before they introduced the new heirloom rings, but even now I get asked.  Which is okay.

In Booty Bay, every Sunday there’s a fishing tournament.  The winners get their pick of a few items, including the heirloom ring.  Short version:  You have to fish to win it.  Gotta be quick too. 

My suggestions:  Try on holiday weekends or anytime you expect the server to be pretty much empty.  Or you can go to a low pop realm.  I suggest 300+ fishing to shorten cast times and flying.  Having fish tracking is a great thing too!




How can I enter your garrison?


New 100s ask this abit, which is okay.  But even older may not realize a glitch that can prevent you from switching over.  So don’t feel ashamed. 

First off:  be IN your garrison.  If you’re not, you won’t get sent over.  It’s not an issue, you just have to be zoned into Garrisons for it to switch. 

Second:  Click on your portrait and click view leaders garrison.  And you should be there!  If not, try a relog.




Where did you get that (insert any transmog, mount, or pet name here)?


This one is really hard to answer here because there are millions of items to choose from.  My best suggestion is to find a good database to pick from that will allow you to search by name.  (Great for searching EVERYTHING)   (For Add-ons!  For this I suggest you get Curse Client and download atlasloot.  It allows searching for any item, sort of like WoWHead without leaving WoW!)

You’re in game databases (for pets, mounts, and toys), just typing the name with search for it and all are nicely tucked in collection tab!



What Stats do I need as this class/spec?


Even older players ask this one a lot.  While guildies and friends can be a great source, a fact-straight way is one of the few sites I’ve found to have accurate info.  But that’s not the only reason I suggest them.  They explain the pros and cons for their choices-most sites don’t-and even offer alternatives.  But as always, I don’t suggest following these to the letter.  More than not these sites pander to high end raiders and are expecting you to have atleast normal raid gear.  Because of that I suggest reading their suggestions and use it to make an informed choice rather than blindly following.


I also suggest experimenting.  Personally, I enjoy the new druid cat form-even though it’s considered a low end damage choice.  Since my feral druid doesn’t raid outside of LFR, I have the freedom to play with the stats and found a higher amount of crit and haste to give me a good dps boost to compete with better geared players as well as allow me to freely use range abilities and heals without switching forms.  Something that works well for Heroics, PvP, and soloing.  But what works for me, can’t work for everyone.  This is why I always suggest playing to your style instead of following to the letter!



Is PvP Gear better then PvE Gear?


Alright gear Nazis, just shut it now.  There is NOTHING wrong with the Warlords PvP gear being used in PvE!  Since they did away with the Resilience stat the PvP gear HAS been viable to use.  Within reason.  So dear god, don’t start that...


To the point:  the main difference in PvP gear and PvE is you’ll see a focus on different stats and usually a higher amount of stam and armor.  Trinkets are the only thing that isn’t viable 90% of the time. 


This being said, I suggest going for higher ilvl (PvE ilvl, not what the gear gets pushed to in PvP mind you) and your prefer stats. 


Alright nay sayers, think of this.  Should I stick with a 605 heirloom with my WORSE stat when I can get this wonderful 700 ilvl piece with my best stat?  If you say I should keep their heirloom, you fail.  So before you complain about the healer in full PvP gear-think about the fact that they might have replaced some REALLY shitty pieces with that.  This is a logic I apply in just about every LFR I go into because someone starts whining about someone in PvP stuff. 

But I’ll give you this:  If you’re in a LFR and a piece with better stats for you that can compare and be better than the PvP piece drops and you don’t use it, then you’ve failed. 


If you enjoy PvP and PvE, I suggest trying for two sets that will use the stats you need for each (if their different) so your always doing your best.


I will say this:  Tanks using PvP gear (heavy on it too) are okay in my book.  As mentioned above, PvP gear is usually a higher stam and armor piece.  If you’re one of the classes that doesn’t have an increase health CD then the trinkets are even viable to you.  But I do suggest looking for bonus armor piece in PvE since the PvP stuff is usually a more dps mix.  If stam is your top stat then a consideration for PvP gear might not be a bad idea, especially if you need better pieces.  You having a higher ilvl then required is always a blessing to the group.




Alright that seems like enough for one post.  Got some questions you see a lot or even wanna know?  Just let me know and I’ll include it next time!

All good things...

Im afraid they DO come to a end.  Yes.  Im not talking about the blog!  But a post.  You see, now that im finishing my achievement I have FAR less reason to Selfie.  As such, i'll not be continuing my Friday SELFIE post into 2016.  As such i'll need something else to fill that spot or take it out all together. 

Because i'll still probably keep taking SELFIEs and screenies (I always have.  For YEARS in fact) i'll most likely still do a monthly post on Monday's with a few screenies/Selfies either I took or that YOU sent me!  Yes, i'll still keep posting any fan given stuff.  But I just wont have enough to keep doing it on Fridays.

I know its months away but because I've been working at the Achievement I've been setting future posts for things like Post Milestones and Selfies.  My regular post I usually do on Sundays and my Battle Pets I tend to do Friday night since I have gotten request on what people would like to see next for those.

Since this IS going to be leaving me with a open slot Friday i'd love to hear from yall on what you might like to see posted to fill the space in 2016.  Comment here, on the FB page, or even send me a note!

Thank you for all of your support!

Green Fire Part 3

Kanrethad Ebonlocke

I mentioned in my last post that this was now a over power nuke fight... But before Warlords it was the other way around.  It was hard, and gear did little to help.  A new 90 was as likely to kill him as a end game raider in full Mythic gear from SoO.  Ya, that hard.

But its not so bad now.  But for the sakes of memories... PAINFUL memories, im sharing the strategy I used to beat him.

Phase 1:  RP

For a little bit he'll stand there just talking.  During this time you nuke.  Like a mad man!  You blew ever CD you had, you put this guy down HARD.

Phase 2:  Fight Starts-Pit Lord Summoned

Now when he starts the fight he'll pull a pit lord from the portal.  This is a MAJOR mechanic.  You have to first fear then enslave the demon.  If you didn't fear first he'd charge and stun you. 

Upside, this pet has some massive damage and the charge is now used in your favor.  Stick him on the boss and let him be killed over time (pretty much little healing, you'll need him to survive till Cataclysm but die before the next pit lord is summoned!

Stay infront of him for cleansing from his breath (which you'd want macro'd to ensure full use!).

Phase 3:  Imps!!

A shit ton of imps appear.  You had to AoE and kill them FAST!  Upside is pit lords breath helped abit.

Phase 4:  Fel Puppies!

I love dogs but these things give you HELL!  They cleansed your enslave demon and went after you in a bad way.  You have to down these FAST or you'd get nuked by the pit lord.

Phase 5:  Doomguard

Yap, here comes another pain.  He just casts shadowbolt-annoying and deadly over time- so you had to banish this one on lockdown.

Things to watch:

During the fight he'd use Chaos Bolt which is a near one shot.  You'll have to use gates and ports to LoS it behind pillars.

Every now and then he'll do Cataclysm!  Your Pit Lord MUST charge him when he starts or you'll wipe.


Soul Stone is friend.  You need to soul stone yourself ahead of time so you could die once.

All Pots, healthstones, flask, ect are allowed!  You can be COMPLETELY BUFFED!

If you die, the pit lord stays under your control.  That means you could use him to finish off that last 2% if you were super close!

Pit Lord did ALOT of your damage.  You mainly were there to handle adds, the demon is the major dps to the boss (which is why a new 90 could kill him with ease and a raider fail miserably).

As mentioned above, this was the old way.  The new way is nuke him.  But by beating him in this old way you received a Feat of Strength, Green Fire in MoP, and a title that only your one lock gets.

Thank yall for stopping by, I hope yall enjoyed the guides!  And again, thank you for sticking with me this long, I hope to keep you coming!  :)

Green Fire: Part 2

At this point your in the solo scenario for Pursing the Black Harvest!  So that's what this part will cover.

Stage 1:  Avoid the Guards.

This is pretty easy if you get the idea.  Stay out of the circles and use your abilities to get by undetected.  Simply CC'ing the guards will work *hint hint Succubus/Shivara hint hint*

Stage 2:  Find the trail.

Just got up the stairs, hit the scroll.  Don't worry when your attacked.

Stage 3:  Follow Akama to Shrine of the Lost Souls.

In the raid, you'd know this as the area before faces boss.

Stage 4:  Uncover the plans.

This room LOOKS empty, but its not...  Using your Eye, make your way through the room-attempting to avoid the traps by placing demon gates and demonic circles.  If you do catch them, your probably over 95 and will one shot the summoned.  Take this Stage slow and steady.

Stage 5:  Defeat the Essence of Order

Well, a new face of Facey-McGee is here to eat your soul.  What do ya do?  Why kill it and take its soul of course!  Again, level 95+ your going to nuke.  For anyone doing it current though, you used one of two methods:  Destro with Voidwalker/Lord, and using Incenerate/Conflag and your Rain of Fire to build embers for healing.  You pretty much just kept running, healing, and resummoning your pet.  Other way (As I did) was to go demonology, dps it down and attempt to silence and move out of way-thus a fel hunter/observer was used.  Im pretty sure the latter was the intended way.  But if your nuking, use the first one!

Stage 6:  Escape the Shrine

Yap..  You killed Baddy and he gave you a demon parade that wants to eat your face!  Imps die easy, elites take more time, Think in terms of size and you'll know whos going to be the hardest...  Using a voidwalker/lord you can easily tank through.  If you have a lot of health/CDs, you could attempt to demonic gate/run like hell/SS rez on other side too...  That might be more viable now.  :D  Honestly, you can take these down so easy now just kill through, don't waste a repair!

Stage 7:  Plunder the Den of Mortal Delights

Get your pirate on and make a rogue's pick pocket look bad.  For this stage you have so long to steal all you like!  As you work your way through you'll find tons of things to click, get as much as possible.  Its all your gold.  But at the end of time, no more clicky.  The higher you go the more demons you'll see but the better the items sell too.  If your 100, go Demonology, let your demon take the top floor and go to town while he kills!  These things were killable, they just took time.  You just gotta reach the Chest near where the boss of the top room would be.

Stage 8:  Head to the Temple Summit

Up you go!

Stage 9:  Defeat Kanredthad

I'll cover this tomorrow!  But honestly..  If your 100, you can nuke.  If you wanna know how its SUPPOSE to be done, read on!

Green Fire: Part 1

This quest line starts by finding a Sealed Tome of the Lost Legion.

Said Tome can be found on the rares in Thunder Isle, but the chance at dropping is roughly 1-2%.  If you want to avoid the farm, you can buy it on the AH-maybe. 

---My boyfriend was kind enough to farm it for the blog purpose, he spent maybe 3 hours killing with a level 92 lock.  When I farmed it, I got it by chance on maybe the 12th rare I killed.  I'd seen it drop multiple times on other characters too-just been unable to loot it.  So even though its set at a low rate, I think it has a decent chance to drop.---

Once you have the tome (by whatever means you prefer to get it..!) You apply a Hearthstone directly to the book with your forehead (not really, I just want to see if anyone tries...) and low and behold, its now the CODEX OF XERRATH!  Yay?

Well at this point you can start the quest line!

An Unusual Tome

The tome appears to be written in an ornate, sprawling script that seems to rise off the pages. It vaguely resembles Demonic, but the symbols are far more elaborate than any you've ever seen.

Perhaps one of your demonic companions can tell you more.

To this you simply summon your demonic pets and speak with them.  Observers are the most helpful..  But the others are entertaining to hear too!

Reader for the Dead Tongue

Assuming you did the other quest, you'll just head to your Orgrimmar or Stormwind to where ever the warlock trainer may be found!

A Tale of Six Masters

This book may be just the leverage we've been seeking...

How familiar are you with the Council of the Black Harvest, <name>?

After Deathwing was defeated, six of the greatest Warlocks gathered together to teach all Warlocks advanced forms of magic stolen from our defeated foes.

Take a look at the tome beside me...

Read the sparkly/glowy book near by.  You'll need it.

Seeking the Soulstones

<name>, take this - the journal of Jubeka Shadowbreaker.

Read the journal and use the information contained within to track down where she went.

Find her soulstones and use them to locate her.

Gather the stones and watch Memories as followed.

Hellfire:  In the Felspark Ravine.  Its purple, stands out well.  :P

No Memory to play.

Up to Netherstorm:  Ruins of Farahlon

Jubeka: Such strange creatures. Why do they remain so long after the legion has left?
Kanrethad: ...there's a slight flaw in that supposition.
Jubeka: Oh?
Kanrethad: The Observers were in the service of Illidan... not the Legion.
Jubeka: Well, he's gone too... so why are they still around?
Kanrethad: How should I know?
Jubeka: Well, I've spent weeks trying to understand how to summon one of these things. If you know something I don't, I'd appreciate it if you'd share it with us "lesser" mortals.
Kanrethad: What's the problem? You handled the binding of the Fel Imps and Voidlords effortlessly.
Jubeka: They were trivial by comparison! These things are never in the same place. There's something... strange about them... something out of place... Oh dear...

Over to Blade's Edge Mt:  This was one I found hard to find in my search for it, Vigor'th's Circle which is near the border to Netherstorm.  If you use Coords:  77, 31.  Its a large black circle with orange runes, near the bridge that connects Netherstorm and Blade's Edge.  Its really on the EDGE.

Kanrethad: I tire of your evasive babble, doomguard. Explain to me why you and your kind are drawn to sacrificial magics.
Doomguard: My contract is to fight for you, not to reveal the Legion's secrets, mortal.
Kanrethad: Do not attempt to decieve me, demon! Your kind far predates Sargeras's betrayal. What WERE you?
Jubeka: This knowledge is useless... what are you trying to achieve, Kanrethad?
Kanrethad: STAY OUT OF THIS! The demon will answer, NOW!
Doomguard: What an odd demand. Not even my own kind care about our origins. Why should you?
Kanrethad: If you do not care then there is no harm telling me.
Doomguard: ... before Sargeras freed us, we were the Titan's hounds. Forever enslaved to police the use of arcane. Sacrificial magic was considered the greatest violation of life and we were attuned to instantly punish those who delved into such... delicious sorcery. You have your petty secret, Kanrethad. Now, I demand knowledge from you... why do you care?
Kanrethad: I don't believe that is part of our contact. We are done here. Jubeka, complete the ritual.

Lastly, flap ALL THE WAY to Shadowmoon Valley (Please keep in mind this is pre Warlords, so Shadowmoon should be fel green, not forest and critters.  :P ) : 

Jubeka: What is it you wished to show me…?
Kanrethad: …Ive seen the fear in your eyes, Jubeka.
Jubeka: What…? No! I.. I have… no idea…
Kanrethad: Gul'dan destroyed the world in his bid for power… you're concerned I will do the same to Azeroth.
Kanrethad: …
Jubeka: No! Stay back! You…you're dangerous. I remain content summoning demons, but you…
Jubeka: …you toy with becoming one yourself!
Kanrethad: There are two sides to the blade of Demonology…
Kanrethad: …the threats that besiege us from the outside…
Kanrethad: …and those that threaten us from within.
Kanrethad: I chose you as my companion for a reason.
Jubeka: And what depraved reason is that…?
Kanrethad: …If I fail, I need you to banish me forever.

If you followed above, you've seen the memories in order and are where you need to be for next part!

Seek the Signal

The soulstone shards fuse together easily in your hands.

Strangely, no soul is stored within the stone. Instead, the stone seems to be drawing power from somewhere in Shadowmoon Valley. Looking east, you feel the power linked beyond the mountains, to the very gates of the Black Temple.

As you can guess, head to the Temple.  But not the RAID entrance.  The ACTUAL entrance.  You'll see a rune on the door.  Its the massive gates in the center!

Infiltrating the Black Temple

It's clear that Jubeka's soulstone has lead you here to the Black Temple.

The question remains... why?

The only remaining option is to head inside and figure out why they were here.

At this point your in a solo scenario which I have cut into TWO parts that will come in next two days!  The run to the boss and then the fight itself (as was in old days... Now ya just nuke it..).

Happy hunting yall, see you tomorrow!
