Get cheaper WoW gametime (via Battle.Net)

Hey Everyone,

Simply by using BRL (BRAZIL REAL) as your currency, you can buy cheaper game time.

This was tested against AUD (AUSTRALIAN DOLLAR), so:
6 Months of game time in AUD 85.80 (75.0048 USD), whereas
6 Months of game time in BRL is 78.00 BRL which is 36.5844 AUD (31.9801 USD)
That's nearly 50% cheaper.

To achieve this, we simply login to our Battle.Net account, Go To Settings > My Payment Options.
On the right hand side, next to "Account Balance', you can 'Change Currency'.
Simply select Brazilian Real, and that's it.
Picture for clarification:


You can then go to your account, go to 'Game Time & Subscriptions', select 'Buy Limited Game Time', select how much you'd like to purchase, and you're all set!

Ladies, For the Horde!

When I saw these I thought to myself, "As a guy I have no idea if the average woman would find these shoes attractive or not. Better as the middle aged lady in my office who doesn't game for an unbiased opinion."

She said they were nice.

Transport supercharged warlock dots through zones



Instructions:

  1. Find overpowered zone buff, eg stack "survival instincts" from the bears in western plaguelands.
  2. Affliction warlock casts dots on hunter pet of opposite faction.
  3. Hunter dismisses pet.
  4. Hunter and warlock travel to something they want to kill eg world boss.
  5. Hunter resummons dot-ed pet.
  6. Warlock uses soul swap and exhales onto npc. 

In theory the damage from this could be limitless, in practice there are several other hurdles, notably
trying to keep the pet alive if the damage is very high.

More detail on this in the video, and other exploiting secrets and mysteries:

496-520ilvl within 24 hours



I wanted to share a guide here of how I got geared up quickly. Timeless Isle has been out for a long time but a lot of people aren't the most efficient when they just ding 90 so I wanted to share some tips on how to gear as fast as possible. Especially if you are playing an alt you want to get SoO LFR ready as quick as possible.

Lets assume you are a fresh 90 just dinged in dread wastes or wherever. Depending on if you want to PVP or PVE it will vary some but lets just say you want to PVE gear first.

Steps 1: Grab the quest from shrine to port to Timeless Isle and begin your rare chest farming locations. Download Paste and TomTom from Curse site as these addons are important to help you know the locations of all the chests. Once that is downloaded restart wow and put these cords into the paste addon then hit save and all the tomtom waypoints will show on the map.

*There is one guaranteed burden of eternity from the blazing chest be sure to save that burden and use it on a ring first as those are usually the hardest to replace*

Step 2: Once you opened all the chests you might be blessed and have gotten all the gear slots you need and are already 496 but usually you still have a few pieces to grind out. At this I recommend to grind 12,000 timeless coins which shouldnt take too long depending how much coins you earned just opening all those chests. Now with those 12k coins go to the timeless vendor and exchange 12k coins for 12 mogu coins Mogu Rune of Fate - Currency - World of Warcraft. What this will do is allow you to regular roll + bonus roll for every boss in throne of thunder LFR which drops 502 quality gear. Meaning you have 24 chances at loot! The ques for ToT LFR are pretty fast because everyone is boosted you might run into some noob groups but thats just part of the game nowadays with how LFR is. If you get any 502 gear replace your 496 gear with that and hopefully you'll break 500 ilvl by the end of the 12 bosses.

Step 3: Turn in the weekly warforged seal quest for 3 coins (50 lesser charms required) use the bonus roll on Celestials/ Ordos (if available to your alt)/ Sha of Pride in SoO for tier chest/ any LFR boss that drops weapon or tier piece.

Step 4: If you can afford it buy the 553 belt from AH first/ run all of SoO LFR and see if you get any tier drops or maybe you'll get the legs from celestials. With how close WoD is I wouldnt spend more than 2k buying a piece because they will be replaced soon in WoD questing.

Step 5: Valor cap weekly with Oqueue/ start flex 1 at 520 ilvl with Oqueue/ item upgrade your highest piece of gear

Repeat SoO LFR/Celestials until you are 520 ilvl to start doing flex 1-2 with oqueue.


*Now if you are into pvping follow the same guidelines above but here is how to get grievous quickly.*

  1. Do the 7 isle of thunder pvp dailies each reward 75honor and 20g. IF you have a guild banner USE IT BEFORE YOU TURN IN THE QUEST! It will increase the honor gain from 75 to 94 honor per quest turn in! I get 600+ honor everyday from the isle of thunder dailies and they take only a few minutes to do.
  2. If you are a tank or able to go into tank spec then instant que dungeon spam for justice point farming. With how high item levels go now people are blasting through heroic dungeons in like 5-10 minutes earning you 300-600 justice points per dungeon. Max at your 4000 JP cap then go to stormwind/org and conver that into 2000 honor points! You could potentially do that in one hour depending on how fast your group is and the que times. This is really only viable as a tank or if healer has instant ques in your battlegroup.
  3. Kill the 3 rares in karasarang wilds or form a farming group for them in Oqueue. Each drops 250 honor x3 
  4. BGs of course but if your side loses a lot its not really worth it because then you are only earning like 300-400 honor per 20 minute game

Just noticed that Stormstrike and Lightning Bolt fit together, are there any others like this?

Looks like I need to redo guild tabs now. Also The White and Black trillium ore would overlap to form Yin and Yang. ...which you do when you smelt one of each into a Trillium Bar. The bar has a yin-yang pattern on its top.




Here is another one of Cheap Shot and Crimson Tempset:

Tabard of Brute Force

Basically I was carrying a new 90 toon on a seperate account, where my main hit the 300 Arena wins. My shaman, who has 75 total games played and 37 wins, also received the tabard.

Not much of an exploit, but still kind of neat. It falls under being on two/three accounts that are all under the same Battle.net account, with one toon that is close to hitting the 300 wins. Pretty easy to do if patient.

Haven't tested it with other achievements yet, but I am sure it can be replicated.

Early Start in Every Battleground (Remove ALL Barriers)

You theoretically can use this in Arena to get an early start and possibly even win every match considering you are put into a quest phase and the enemy players cannot kill you. (Haven't tested).



  1. Obtain the quest "Acid Rain" via Shademaster Kiryn.
  2. Enter the vehicle, and then immediately enter a Battleground.
  3. You're now phased and ALL barriers are gone, therefore an early start.
  4. Relog to leave the quest phase. 5. GG

[Druid] Fly Anywhere Without A Mount

So today I was wearing my Burgy Blackheart's Handsome Hat , and while I was flying to Goldshire (zoning from Stormwind to Elwynn Forest), it removed Flight Form, and left me swimming in the air with normal movement speed.

TL;DR instructions:

  1.  Equip Burgy Blackheart's Handsome Hat
  2.  Go into Flight Form
  3.  Get invited by a person from another realm (or fly over a cross realm zone [SW>Elwynn])
  4.  When you zone you should be a flying gnome ghost.

I was able to remove the hat and maintain flight, as well as zone back into Stormwind. I was also able to cast all of my abilities as well as use engineering items. Mounting on GROUND MOUNTS maintained flight, but didn't increase my flight speed, only my ground speed.

make 2500g with Justice Point Cap



So Justice Point are getting removed in WoD.

Currently, there are still Justice Points in the live patch and there are a few ways to get the most out of it.

Most means either Gold or Value.

The best way to spend those Justice Point is imo in Dalaran. Remeber, the stuff you buy now with JP won't be buyable in WoD. So everything you can buy now, which is "cheap" or even expensive now may be even more expensive in WoD.

I recommend buying: Frozen Orb in Dalaran from either Magistrix Lambriesse or Arcanist Ivrenne. 110 Justice Point per Frozen Orb. So a full cap are 36 Orbs.

You can use Frozen Orb to buy different things, i won't go more into it. Just because im busy, do research yourself.

(Frozen Orb's won't be buyable in WoD anymore) (I saw wowhead marks them for 75g to buy from vendor for gold instead JP) So if you sell Frozen Orb's which are litterally a mat for the chopper mount, at 70g. You get 2500g from you JP Cap.

Seems the best way to make gold with JP.

Transmogrification: Undead Draenei: Blood DK With "Bloodworm" Pet


They did a great job with the draenei. It only bothers me a little with the tentaclebeards. They look like they are just added on and not a extension of the face.

Dragon Soul - raid exploration



Here is my latest exploration of the Dragon Soul raid. My most recent videos have been more cinematic, but with this one I wanted to return a bit to showing the methods I use to reach these places. The music is by Mr. Scruff from his Friendly Bacteria album, which is awesome and you all should go buy it today

(Warlock) Pass through solid walls and be invincible in Battle For Gilneas



Instructions:

  1. Cast glyphed eye of Kilrog through either of the fireplaces in Battle for Gilneas, in the buildings to the left of the Waterworks and Lighthouse flags respectively, at the exact angle shown in the video.
  2. Put down a demonic circle in the gap between the wall and the fireplace. 

You can now move in and out of the building at will, making you virtually impossible to kill since you can use demonic teleport to escape almost any amount of damage, and escape further line of sight attacks till you've recovered. You can also view the flags from within the building's walls, making it almost impossible for any one or even multiple players to capture the flag.

Note that you are immune to most special attacks while inside the fireplace even if the enemy team
somehow figures out your there.

This is one of strongest pvp exploits I've posted since it is virtually undetectable and gives a player
almost control over one flag while being almost invincible. It can also being used in RBG since it only requires warlock class abilities.

Saw this funny thread on 4chan

the whole thread is a giant nostalgia trip there. Some how it still retains the emotion of the original. Maybe it's just the ungodly number of times I ran the instance back in Wrath or seeing the old WCIII model, but I could even hear their voices and inflections in my head saying it as I read along. Even the false cooking lingo.

Uther: Glad I could make it, Arthas. Arthas: I watch my tone with you, old man. I may be the prince, but you're still my superior as a paladin. Uther: As if you could forget. Yes Arthas, there's something about the plague I should know. ...Oh no, it's already begun. These people may look fine now, but it's only a matter of time before they turn into the Undead! Arthas: What?! Uther: This entire city must be purged. Arthas: How can I even consider that? There's got to be some other way. Uther: Damn it, Arthas! As my future king, order me to purge this city! Arthas: I am not your king yet, old man. Nor should you obey that command even if I were. Uther: Then you must consider this an act of treason. Arthas: Treason?! Have I lost my mind, Uther? Uther: Have you? Prince Arthas, by right of succession and the sovereignty of your crown, you must hereby relieve me of my command, and suspend my paladins from service. Jaina: Uther! He can't just-- Uther: It's done! Those of you who have the will to save this land, follow him. The rest of you... get out of his sight. Arthas: I've just crossed a terrible threshold, Uther. Jaina: ...Arthas? Arthas: I'm sorry, Jaina. You can't watch me do this.
