Frostwolf Rep Farm Insane (10k+ an hour + easy invasion)

My guildie found this spot, the mobs are an infinite respawn,give apexis,greens and can proc Goren invasion.

Requires Hoarfrost alive and can be crossrealmed. If you are a major aoe class that can spam like a shaman lock Rep gain is faster.

Was 2 shotting whole packs with a 698 lock as destro with chaos bolt aoe gave me about 18k rep in an hour.

Sharing before it goes unnoticed and is fixed.

Transmogrification: Kitana Mortal Kombat Transmog

I had recently been inspired by Mortal Kombat, and also the Draenor PvP set belt to create a Kitana transmog. Why the belt? Because it had a blue flap, which meant that I did not have to cover the torso with a tabard. This allowed for the Kitana-esque chest piece to show. Anyways, I am proud to present this new transmog creation of mine: The Kitana Transmog!

Head: “Helm of Assassination” – This can be gotten from Arcatraz and it drops from Harbinger Skyriss. This may take a few runs because it only has a 15% drop chance. However this is a crucial piece of the transmog set because it looks better than any other piece you can get at the moment.

Shoulders: "Puncture-Binding Spaulder" - Kitana never wore shoulder pads. However, because these shoulders are small and only on one shoulder they were the best fit for this mog. Their color also makes them the best choice out of all available similar models. Luckily, these shoulders are extremely easy to get - on Alliance (there seems to be an equivalent quest for the Horde though.) These shoulders can be gotten as a reward from the quest "Pulling Weeds." This quest can be acquired from Desolace.

Chest: "Trickster's Vest" - This vest might be a bit harder to get. The reason for that is because it is a simple green item drop. I bought it from the auction house for about 50 gold. It is sad that this is the only transmog-able vest of this coloring. The only other option that is the same model and color is of gray quality. The reason I chose this vest is because it is the most similar chest piece to Kitana's. The plunging neckline and the color were the most important qualities I was looking for.

Weapons: "Wu-Lai, Blade of the Cosorts" - I would like to first take a moment to complain about how Blizzard had a whole patch dedicated to a Chinese theme, yet they could not put more Fan type weapons into the game for the Rogues! Anyways, I had gone for these fist weapons because they most closely resembled Kitana's fans. These can be gotten from Raid Finder (to get the blue colored ones) Throne of Thunder, and they drop from from the Twin Consorts - Lu-lin and Suen. I had to do many runs to get these fans, and I used some coins to roll for bonus loot. I suggest going to Timeless Isle and purchasing some yourself.

Hands: "Blackwater Grips" - I do not remember where exactly I had gotten these gloves, but I am pretty certain they are from some random heroic dungeon. I had decided to use these hands because they suit the belt in coloring and texture, and of course I had the added benefit of already having them. I think there is a lot of wiggle room for different options on the hands in this mog, so you may choose different ones that you feel fit better. These gloves seem to drop from any Draenor Heroic.

Belt: "Primal Combatant's Belt of Prowess" - This belt was one of the items that had inspired me to do this mog in the first place. It is a PvP Season 1 Warlords belt that can be gotten for 1750 Honor points in Ashran. I had stated my reason for this belt earlier so I won't repeat myself, but know that this is an essential part of the mog.

Legs: “Warbear Woolies” – Everyone knows about this item. These are the most revealing legs a leather wearer can own. However they are a bit difficult to obtain for those who do not have a LW character because they are expensive on the auction house. And even those who do have LW, will need farm rep, and leather to create these. You may get the recipe to create these woolies from a Furbolg in Timbermaw Hold in Felwood named Meilosh. However, you need to be “Friendly” with them before you can speak with them. Do their quests to increase your reputation.

Feet: "Clefthoof Wanderboots" - Much like the chest, I had bought this on the auction house and for similar reasons too. They most closely resembled Kitana's boots, they had good coloring, and lucky for me they were cheap too. Sadly, just like the chest piece, this model with this color is only available in one form. The other item with similar looks is gray.

World of Warcraft' Patch 6.1.2 Will Set The Stage For $20 WoW Tokens Trade

Blizzard Entertainment announced it will introduce $20 Tokens to the "World of Warcraft" game to follow its recent release of Patch 6.1.2.

Popular online role-playing MMORPG, "World of Warcraft," will soon have a new game structure to accommodate $20 WoW Tokens with Blizzard Entertainment's March 23 release of its latest Patch 6.1.2.

The Tokens will allow players to trade in-game gold and game time within the next few weeks following the release of Patch 6.1.2. Patch notes on the game's website announced it would wait until after the patch had gone live for a time to launch the $20 Tokens accessibility to.ensure the game features were solid enough to support the Token system.

When the Tokens capability has been launched, players will be able to purchase them in the game's Shop using real money. They will also be able to exchange their Tokens for gold at the Auction House based on the going market rate.

With the set market price and clear-cut exchange system, players need not have to worry about their Tokens selling or being undercut due to market shifts. All players who buy or sell Tokens will receive the exact amount of gold they have been quoted.

As soon as a player uses gold to purchase a WoW Token from the Auction House, the Token automatically becomes a Soulbound which can be redeemed for an equivalent of 30 days of game time.

The $20 WoW Tokens will be priced at "roughly equivalent in each local currency," the Patch notes stated, with the starting gold value for each region dependent on the region's in-game economy, as well as what the game developers deem to be a fair and reasonable price. From that point onward, the gold value for Tokens will be determined by a dynamic system based on supply and demand.

The Tokens will initially become available in North America, and will roll out over time to other regions.

If Gnomes could be Druids..

I'd roll a gnome just for that.

I've always want gnomes to be hunters so they could ride their own pets into battle.

Re-Loot Garrison Mines Chests

So I discovered this quite a bit ago, but haven't had time to mess or experiment with it all that much. It's a pretty unrealistic way to do any crazy farming, as it takes a bit of preparation time. But I thought I would post it anyway, if anyone wants to experiment to discover any additions to it, I'd be happy to see some expansion upon it.

So the general basis is that you need a level 3 mine. Go to your mine, find an unlooted chest, the ones that randomly spawn throughout the mine itself.

You will also need another person for the next part, the way I discovered was to que for 2v2 arenas.

Bring up the window to loot items from one of the chests, loot whichever items you want, but make sure to leave at least one item, and do NOT close the loot window. I found the best option to be the grey items or arch frags the best to leave.

Now wait with the loot window open until the 2v2 que pops, and with the loot window still open, accept the arena que.

When you leave the arena, the chest you looted should have replenished itself and you can loot the items again.

I'd like to repeat that I have not done a great deal of experimentation with this, so plz don't rage if you have any errors recreating it.

Skipping Valithria in ICC (Since Tuesday)

So I realize for years now.. seriously years.. you've been able to run right by..

That is not the case anymore..

Tried it on 2 100s.. a druid even with stealth.. a mage with invisiblity.. both times the encounter began :-/

So wait 'til they come up & take a nightmare portal without healing Val at all & the encounter will bug out & despawn..

Then run past like normal :-)

As a dad with a single monitor...

I too watch furry pron while playing WoW.

In all seriousness though, I salute you for making one monitor work. I don't know how I could go back from using my double monitor setup. Is there just not room for a second one? Card not support it? Money the big thing?

Deathwing mod for Skyrim

Skyrim: Now featuring a better Deathwing encounter than the actual Deathwing encounter.

Anytime I see something that brings up Deathwing I get a little sad inside because that boss was supposed to be the best. I remember the first time I saw that Cataclysm cinematic.. I had goosebumps just thinking about how awesome that encounter would be. Oh well, what is lost is lost I guess.

Saw this, cracked up & thought I should share

Honestly, I'm really split on this one. It's humorous art, which I feel to be a good thing. Yet still, it's vandalism, which is bad. Yet even still, it's on an cheap and temporary eyesore of an advertisement.

I guess in the end, I enjoy this picture for what it is, and I'm happy it happened. But I don't want it to spurn a wave of vandals feeling justified because people like me liked this photo. It was funny this one time, guys. Let it be the one time.

Blizzard sent me a survey. This was one of the questions.

Google also does this for their surveys (I'd assume because they pay you money for taking them), to even be able to take surveys you need to take a practice survey and it has questions like this, I assume if you do not get the right answers it just bars you from taking their surveys.
