A Blog for any and all World of Warcraft players that like abit of useful info from another casual player as well as some silly posts every now and then to put a smile on your face.
Weekly Post include: Current Content with tips and tricks, SELFIE Friday (a jokey post to brighten your week), and a post for Battle Pet Strategies for hardcore and beginning pet farmers.
2. I was a RPer! And yes some addons were helpful!
To start off, I have two ideas on this. One is NEED and two is HELP.
Okay, this is a nifty addon! It allows you to see OTHER RPers (because its hugely popular and indicates them as a fellow RPer), allows you to type in a new Name/Title/Race, ect. Allows you to put in a description, links to photos, background, and other nifty info to help bring in other people.
It also has a wonderful feature that allows you to say if your OOC (Out of Character) or IN (In Character). And what stage of RPer so you can let them know if your casual, hardcore, or just starting.
Like Progression Guilds, Hardcore RPers can be super bitchy and selective about who they let in. Some have no patience for new people and should be avoided till you are to that level because they will ignore you, try to godmob kill you (And Godmobing is really a freaking sin among RPers!), or just OOC berate you till you scurry off!
Sometimes its guilds, other times its just certain people but even when I was hardcore, I avoided those groups... Mainly because I enjoy being social with the person too. Like (( Hey, hows your day going IR? ^.^ )) while in the middle of a serious RP... Some people enjoy that kind of interaction, especially if their not in full swing of the current issue... Seriously, some people do RP with issues like depression, anxiety, or just straight out loners. So they main skulk around the group doing emotes or whispers... I imagine that gets a bit boring... But having a social interaction can help you bond with the person leading to more RP, friendships, ect!
This is a cool addon, even if you don't RP.
What it does is sets up automated speech tied to certain actions or spells. Then you can change how often it happens... Like 1 in 100 for a spell you spam but maybe 50/50 with a CD you pop every couple minutes.
It works for mounts and pets too!
And you can customize it whats said. Pick from the options or add your own to match your character or your own personality.
This stuff gets tons of comments on RP realms because it makes you look super hardcore while still focusing on your role. It adds a extra layer of story so to speak.. Heh... I learn to laugh at my jokes, yes.
It's also great for non RP with the tedious things like "Gratz!" You can set up a BUNCH of responses so it randomly does a new one for every achievement/level earned by guildies and party members. From /cheer to gratz to a long flowery Congratulation speech! Your call.
This is a personal thing... I use it 99% for PvE but it has been helpful when RPing. Mainly when I need to Ref another alt, when I need a CERTAIN item (Like the ONLY lovely black dress on my account), or if I have a RP event on any characters.
You get the idea.
Others to check out:
FairLanguage / LanguageCycle (Different addons, similar use)
Mylune's Champions (Great for druids, hunters, or animal loving characters!)
Guild Bounty Hunter (Great for Guilds that like the Merc or Bounty Hunter theme!)
GryphonHeart Items (This one allows you to create and trade conjoured items with certain names, icons, and descriptions. Its cool, but I personally never got as much use out of it unless I did Guild Events I hosted)
Priestess of the Moon
There was a addon that also changed all your text to a dialect/language of your choice... But I couldn't find it again. So it may of been removed sadly.
But till next we meet, whats your kind of addon? Any favorites for RP?
It all starts with going back to Class Hall and being told there is a issue in the Wind Relam... Really? I half expected it to be Firelands..
Blah, RP walk.. er, float... Kill the other Windlords from Thrones! And chop chop because thats how these lords work..
I started with West Winds-Anshai. As Elemental I could stay max range and easily hit without pulling adds... Keep in mind, this is a dps check. If your less then 175k you'll get instant killed. He throws a debuff that will kill at 5 stacks so silence as many Healing Swells as you can! You wont be able to every other but if you miss one it'll make it much harder...
If you did Broken Shore can probably pull closer to 200k atleast but if your not i'd suggest popping CDs to get you there (even if its a Hero!)
Next was Nezir, the North Wind.. Oyie!
Pretty easy, little damage. Just watch your feet for frost patches and get out and run around him during Gale because it knocks back and does decent damage.
Also dont bother silencing, the damage is so minimual you can deal.
Last the East wind Rohash.
He does two nasty abilities... 1 is a vortex he sets on your area its a wide range, pulls you to center and though its light damage it adds up QUICK. The second is Sandstorm which blows away everything including you! So you have to run against the current.
The vortex can be hard to see with lower settings but try to place them close to each other because they can easily take up all your space to fight. So you can heal through or watch your feet.. Ele I suggest they move but Ench with good malstorm generation can easily heal through.
Again, Silencing is pointless, dont bother.
Now once your done you can step in the new swirly air for a safe float to RP talk! Then you'll get ported home.
First off is Ahune! A instance finder boss (any level can queue as of 2017!) that drops some 850 cloaks, Formula for Deathfrost, and the illusion for Deathfrost.
The bag you get daily has a chance to include a pet Frigid Frostling, Staff of Ahune (Useless with Artifacts, but 850 + its cool!), and some holiday currency.
King of the Fire Festival is a quest from Org or SW that will send you to steal the fires of the other 4 capitals. Best done in a group/raid!
Awards the Achieve: Stealing _____ Flames!
You'll go through out the zones putting out the other fractions fires as well as honoring your fractions. (Be warned, there are horrible assholes who will camp the harder to reach fires such as Crossroads, Exodor, and Eversongs. I notice the Alliance suffer more since its usually Horde rogues in my experience. -.- Report the trolls and don't be afraid to ask for help or start a counter raid attack. Trust me, NO ONE likes these guys and you'll get TONS of help to make them run and suffer.)
You'll do this on Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Outlands, Northrends, Vashjr, Deepholm, Pandaria, and the 4 capitals of the opposite Fraction (as mentioned above).
Awards Achieve: Flame Warden of _________ and Extinguishing ___________ (respectively).
HandyNotes has a curse addon that puts them on your map.
EDIT: As of 2017 there is also the Broken Shore and Draenor Achievements as well!
If your looking to level, the Ribbon Poles give hour long buffs to increase your exp gain! If done in the Midsummer clothes you'll get the Achievement "Burning Hot Pole Dance" after one minute. It'll cost 400 currency to buy the three pieces (CROWN IS NOT THE ONE YOU NEED FOR THIS!!)
Torch Juggler Achievement
Go to Dal with about 10 torches. Start throwing and catching them as you learned during the Daily. Do 40 times in 15 secs. Ya, no, that's what your SUPPOSE to do but the smart kids will put the torch on their bar and then spam click that number with the keyboard while clicking under their character with the mouse. This will award it with less heartache!

You come up with some creative ways to baby sit and game.. Truly...
But a special shout out to my own father. Its because of him that yall are reading this! I started gaming to play with him, and from that I became a raider, a RPer, a artist, and a blogger. Most of my art is based off WoW, playing it gave me direction for wanting to design a game too. And most importantly, it helped lead me to the man i'll be marrying (See the Creepy Annoucement from Friday!).
Yall know I'm struggling for Friday post at this time, but I found this awhile ago and it seemed like a good way to share some of my news.
If you've been reading awhile then you know who Nav/Sal is. My epic DK boyfriend he was!
Well, he isn't my boyfriend anymore, in fact he hasn't been for a couple months now.
I took this while running around and looking for treasures. Pretty much, your crashing a wedding and stealing the ring... A Ghost wedding... This is kind of wrong on many levels.
But Nav and I are actually engaged. We'll be getting married in December. <3
Nav and I met in WoW over ten years ago! We've been together about 5 years this June.
I don't suggest internet dating for everyone, but it worked for us. We bonded over boss kills, me yapping his ear off, and a mutual interest in gaming. It was just friends for years before it ever became more... And now he leeches off my internet in exchange for fixing my plumbing (That actually isn't sexual, my father taught him plumbing and tree chopping so he could come cut fire wood for him and fix my 50 year old plumbing issues.)
And somehow were engaged. I'm fuzzy on those details honestly..
Well, that's all for this post. But I would love some art, Screenie/SELFIEs, or even post from all of you to go into December and January since i'll be busy with holidays and the honeymoon so any help would be appreciated to no end!
Several of these quest have had their requirements reduced but the quest log and text aren't always reflecting this change leaving you half way done and attempting to get the next part that just wont drop.
They did fix this issue with SOME quest in 7.2 but not all.
So please report them if you see them so they'll get their act together! Maybe they don't know... Maybe they don't care... Who can say?
This one can be use for Pet Battle Master Beast As well.
There are many ways to do this one but I'm showing this one today.
My first one is a bought pet but one with a group heal can fill that place. You mainly just wanna limit the pain of the AoEs.
The second one has to go against a undead so critter attacks were a must. I love applying the damage increase debuff and then knocking huge chunks out. It makes me very happy.. Since it is a undead, I try to time a Stampede during the immortal phase so that atleast one will hit the last pet and apply that awesome debuff.
For the last I wanted a Strong attacker. I love using Prowl and blasting them for a huge chunk. Just remember not to waste a round of the debuff if you got stampede off before dying on the second pet.
Either way, kitty will make short work on them.
So Happy hunting and grats on a tick off your Pet Battle Masters Achieves.
There are three quest (aka the three specs!) i'll go through each line separately because you have to do all three anyway.
This one is the easiest. The quest will send you to Dalaran to speak to our favorite portal guard. She will provide you with this disc and your off.
While in Dal go talk to Khadgar. He'll send you to the center of Dal and through a port to Kara. His friend Alturus has the piece in his study in the cellars below but you must "Fight" to the portal. No... You just run through and Invis if needed when you hit the portal...
This one took my effort..
If you have the Ancient Dal port then you can use this to get to the Dal Crater. If not, theres a port in the center of new Dal (Horde can port to UC too).
Speak to the Archmage near the lake. Really? Orges too it? Well then...
Even though the quest and map make it look that way you do not have to kill random lowbies or search buildings. A Blue Orge mage will spawn, he is 110. He has what you need. He pats abit but stands out like a sore thumb.
Now back to the class hall to turn in and be sent to EoE!
Your going to have to fight each disc.. I did it as fire. Being able to cast scorch while moving and having tons of instant spells made this a super easy thing since I could blink to heal and just pat around. But I have decent gear so these things were going down pretty quick. Assuming you used shards to get 850+ stuff I doubt you'll have a issue. But if you do, there are vendors who repair, sell healing items, and shields to block damage.
Once your done you'll have a little RP in your class hall and BOOM!
Class Mounts just came out so I'm doing a couple things. First I'm doing this post. And then I'm going to do some Friday post on the classes quest (kind of like I do for Artifacts-short and sweet!).
As yall know my Friday post are usually SELFIE and Screenies but my stock pile has dwindled so I've had to limit those. I've got mixed reactions to it. But Doing this on every alt is going to take time and i'd like to keep my Weds post more diverse since its the main post... Heck, I'm still trying to do post on all the artifacts so i'll probably be throwing some of those on Friday too.
But if you like the Screenies, have no fear they will be thrown in too!
I'll link each class back here as well and then probably link the entire thing to the Artifact page once its done.
Onto the post!
Now this is NOT shared! You have to do this on EVERY class/alt that is going to get the mount... But the mount CAN be used on all levels of that class once you have it. (Even my 20 mage could use it! So never fear... Unlike the hidden appearance this is shared.
Now your main probably has done all these but your alts might feel the pain.
Your going to have to do the achievement Breaching the Tomb.
This means you'll need to have Defending Quest and do a Assault, you'll have to kill 100 demons in certain areas many times, you'll need to farm Sentinax, do the starter stuff, that scenario that sucks balls when your a fresh 110 with no bloody gear... Go ahead and save up 2.5k of shards so he can take ONLY 1! (WHY?!) Prepare to scour the shore for boxes and hope the tower is up so you can see them on the map... Oyie... Just saying it makes me wanna cry... Oh, and Champion the cause by doing a mission connected to the shore. Its no longer the Elite Strike only but no one is sure what all will and wont count towards it. So save that armor tokens and spend like crazy for them!
Ugh, I wish you all luck during that hell but the reward is worth it. The first one will naturally be on the mage (since she is my 'main' for the expac, sorta.)
Replace the two X with iframe and you have the current code I'm fighting with to create and more secure mail list that has less painful steps!
But it just continues to make a blank box. Its embedding with a empty frame of the size but the script that would allow you subscribe is refusing to budge for me...
So if your wondering about that lovely box to the right... Yah, that's my progress.
Oh well, i'll keep at it. If any of you have some experience with in coding and maybe see my issue I am all ears.
Coding is like a puzzle that breaks everytime you fix a issue... At first it wasn't sizing right, then it wasn't appearing at all, then it was just showing code script... On and on... I've spent a couple hours on it... Break time. May you have better luck!
Look, gaming is great... But Life is great too, even if it feels like it sucks right now.
You need motivation and confidence to get or keep a nice body... And neither will come in your constantly looking at a perfect avatar with no one to see your work.
So keep in touch to Real Life. Show off your hard earned smaller waist and more toned looks.
You cant do that while playing 12 hours of WoW sadly... Ever played for what feels like 3 minutes, done nothing, find out its been 6 hours? That might be a issue...
If your playing for hours on end the game gets tedious, dull, frustrating...
So try limiting your time or having days you don't get on. And then during the off time call friends, go out. do some chores, or keep up the work out.
Why? Because the game is great but it cant motivate you! If I told my guildies I dropped 30 pds, how would they know I'm lying?! My coworkers would NOTICE but my in game friends will just see my avatar. Thin as ever.
Also.. Never compare yourself to your avatar, not even the pandas.
These are pixels... Their perfect and meant to appeal. Even the "Chubby panda" is designed to have most of the weight as curves you'd want (big booty and boobs) atleast for females... Males... Hope to never be your male panda.
But don't think you need to have a waist so tiny like blood elves, don't think your boobs are too small while looking at the human or pandas. Guys don't think you need those 6 or 8 packs... Most girls aren't counting and are happy if we can see ribs or beer guts...
Be the best you, you can be! Love who you are and strive to be healthy, not perfect like models. Because that's what will really make you beautiful.
I know I started this about having that "Beach Body" but honestly, if I said "Lets live healthier!" most of you would of ignored it... And these steps I've given are a great starting stone towards the true beach body but I really don't think you need. A little fat can be healthy (key word is little mind you, we all have problem areas that wont give!).
