Trouble queuing up for The headless horseman? Solved [x]

So alot of people are complaining about not being able to queue for the seasonal dungeon. Atleast on my server, Frostmane EU.
They claim their queue is being paused, and due to that they obviously wont get into the dungeon.

How to
Choose your role, and queue up and keep the Dungeon & Raid-window open and voilĂ , you'll get invited. So do not exit the D&R window.

Solo Nalak the Storm Lord

Patch 6.0.2 upgraded many guards to level 100, so drag Nalak to the Shado-Pan guards at the ToT summoning stone not too far away. It took them only about 30 seconds to kill it, and I just needed to keep myself alive. It should be noted that guards on PVE servers are much stronger, and this is where I tested it. It's possible the PVP server guards might be too weak, but still should provide some assistance in the encounter. This boss drops 522 gear and a chance at a mount. ~15m respawn, weekly loot.

Edit: Just tested on a PVP server, a few of the Shado-Pan guards died, and it took a few minutes, but they pulled it off.

Making easy gold with raid lockouts

This might be old news to some but still very profitable.

Pretty simple all you need is a toon with a lockout to ICC, ULD , Ragnaros and all other bosses that drop mounts.Since 6.0 old raids even easier to solo then ever before and most people don't want to waste time clearing all the way to last boss when you can buy it at a good price.

Since raids reset yesterday i was advertising the following on my server and i literally couldn't keep up with the private messages i was getting.

WTS all old raid lockouts ICC,ULD, FIRELANDS and more get your MOUNT NOW only 1K.

1k gold isn't alot to people and 9/10 people will be happy to pay that amount to save anywhere from 30-60 mins to simply just come in and kill last boss.

I was advertising for about 4 hours last night i made just under 60k from advertising and also got a gift of 30K from someone who got firehawk mount off Ragnaros, however would of been alot more but you can only do so much with one toon. For those who have multiple toons/accounts on different servers can obviously make alot more doing all at the same time.

pretty simple

Step 1 Advertise
Step 2 Buyer zones in with your lockout and accepts the pop up message that shows the amount of bosses defeated and will become locked to the instance.
Step 3 They Solo the boss and you repeat step 1.

Could take you couple hours to get yourself all the lockouts or however many you want to sell the more you have the more buyers you reach out.

You could charge what you wish i was happy going for !k as i didn't want to put it to high and cop abuse and it worked for me as i got 90K or so in 4 hours.

If you're a gold seller $0.45/1K about $45 in 4 hours isn't that bad and you could do it on battlechest accounts for $4 and all you need to do is also make level 1 toons on multiple servers and find buyers with level 1 toon get buyer to add your battletag and accept party invite from the toon with the lockout as all old raids are cross realm now.

Death Grip bug.

At the moment, if you Death Grip as you dismount while jumping or in the air, it will Death Grip them to you.

You normally can't Death Grip people while jumping or in mid-air. Pretty funny in EoTS and Arathi Basin.

Level incredbly fast 80-90

6.0 brought some nice changes for altoholics and now that all my toons are maxed, heres my method:

1) You need to know how the Legacy Buff you get when doing "old content" works i.e.: that it is in sync with the expansion level caps
2) Dungeons now have a new way of quest tracking/awarding exp, similar to CMs & scenarios and can be repeated ad nauseum

now with this knowledge, what you wanna do is seek out dungeons that have their entrance & the path from killing the final boss ot the exit located as closely to another as possible.(Lost City of Tol Vir is a great example, after the final boss just jump down and ride out to the entrance).
The whole point is to speedrun these dungeons SOLO, which you can do thanks to the legacy buff and getting all the exp after killing the final boss of the dungeon (see #2), after that exit, reset & repeat.

At 85 the fastes way is to do forge of souls to 86, then stonecore and at 88 you can start at Tol Vir. For 80-85 leveling just look up some high end BC dungeons (mana tombs & sethtek halls), and do the same.

With the new expansion coming out, what better time than now for a revamp of LFR?

This would be pretty awesome, and I can't really see any downsides.

I can only assume there might be technical problems on Blizzard's side implementing it, but only way to find out would be submitting it to the forums.

It might cause a further shortage of tanks and healers though. I feel like many people only queue tank/healer for the quicker queue and this would remove that incentive as they can just queue DPS and play an alt. Longer queues. I dunno...

WOW’s “The Iron Tide” is Here

Blizzard have announced the latest patch to their World of Warcraft yesterday, a patch quite pretentiously titled “The Iron Tide”. The Iron Tide is here to fix a number of issues with the game, amounting to a rather hefty list of hot-fixes.
As far as environmental improvements go, the patch did away with the sometimes empty Treasure Chests on Timeless Isle. The Ogre Combat quest is gone as well, after all Master Aitokk has apparently been dead for a while, so the last place he’d be is offering quests to players.

Quest-wise, there’s always something that manages to tick people off, and indeed, nothing accomplishes that better than a quest which just cannot be finished. We’re talking about High Recognition of course, another issue which has now been done away with.
To the Skies! and the Legendary Cloak quest line have also been overhauled a bit. In the former, Taoshi no longer de-spawns after her arrival, and in the latter, the Judgment of the Black Prince no longer carries a guild reputation requirement.

Players will be glad to find that in the Temple of the Jade Serpent, the damage dealt by Strife and Peril has finally been reduced so it’s no longer as ludicrous as it used to be.
In arenas and battlegrounds, the winning team will pick up more honor points, but this fix is temporary, lasting till the opening of the Draenor Portal, which will reset it.
Various NPCs above lvl 90 will no longer appear in locations like Alterac Valley, Isle of Conquest and Strands of the Ancients.

The bottom line: The Iron Tide has done a decent job of cleaning up some of the most annoying issues present in the game, essentially preparing it for the launch of Warlords of Draenor. Those who will return to the game in the coming days/weeks, will be certainly glad not to run into any unexpected problems.

Hallow's End in destroyed Theramore

Looks like Blizzard forgot to phase the Hallow's End stuff out of destroyed Theramore this year. Click the image for more.

Everything that should be solid is solid. You can stand on the apple bowl and sit in the chairs from it. Should make for some interesting screenshots with your friends!

Edit: As an aside, it seems that the non-phased is merged with the phased Theramore. This may not be limited to Hallow's End. Troops are floating around and players are walking on air around me.

Patch: 6.0.2
People needed: Solo
Class: Any
Items: None
Professions: None
Third party tools: None.
Disconnects: None.
Mounts: Any flying mount.
Macros: None.

Method: Simply visit Theramore during Hallow's End while not in the time-travel phase.

Caverns of Time - No Fog

Just a bit of exploration information; currently in CoT (Culling of Strathome) there's no fog when outside of boundaries. See attached for evidence.

Thanks all!

[Minor] Bypass class role for dungeon queue (YMMV)

If you have a character that last queued as heals before the pre-patch without a heal spec, you can still get pulled into dungeons with a healing role. This may also work for the tank role.

I have a monk that was last set up as heals and damage, to quickly queue for the Grim Guzzler dungeon. When I logged into it today to do Headless Horseman, I was marked only as DPS on the dungeon finder screen. I hit queue and went into the dungeon as heals. I relogged and replicated this with a random MoP queue.

I have not tried switching between specs or unchecking the DPS box, as I'm afraid it might reset my role availability. Could be available to everyone like the talents if it's only controlled by the UI (since it remembered me as heals from last time).
