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.

Boost your followers' success rate !

I found something huge !

You can teach a follower a racial trait X increasing the chance of success of a mission with race X

The point is, you can teach, for example, the Ogre Buddy Handbook to an Ogre (himself !).

The Ogre follower auto-increase the success chance, just with his presence, as the "combat experience" trait.

That's pretty awesome, you do not have to compose a team with an Ogre AND a follower with buddy abilitie, the Ogre speaks for itself

I'm quite sure you can do this trick with every handbook.

Harrison Jones for an alt w/o the quests

This may only work the first time you trigger the achievement on any character.

Given the way Harrison Jones is awarded to players you can give him to a 2nd or 3rd character while completing it on another. This is without them doing all the quests.

  1. Do all but the last quest you need for the achievement and turn them in.
  2. Get the Final quest you need and do it, but do not turn it in. Just position yourself in front of the turn-in
  3. Log in on the chosen alt.
  4. Open another client and log in on the character with the final quest to disconnect yourself.
  5. Turn in the final quest(I use an auto turn-in addon).
As long as the other character(s) was/were online at the time of completion they will be given a Harrison Jones of their own due to triggering the achievement.

Somewhat of a no brainer, but I know some people won't think of doing it.

My Paladin Alt with Harrison Jones unlocked and the achievement to earn him incomplete in the achievement tracking.

Lordaeron arena map glitch

There's currently a map glitch spot Lordaeron arena you can use to get two free port from the easternstart box to the central tomb. Simply jump on the little platform, on top of the candle (either jump straight at it, either use the candle on the ground to get up there)

Before 6.1 that spot was randomly killing you, since then it seems to works pretty consistently and this way :

First time and second time you wait a few seconds at this place, it ports you directly middle map. Third time it instantly kills you, not showing anything in combat log / ...

(By the way, it's only working only after the game started. Rated / skirmish / ... doesn't matters)

Needless to say it can proves itself useful when kitting two melee as a healer or when you just want to put 80y between you and them :-)
