This guy got banned and mailed Blizzard. This is awesome!

I wonder what he got banned for and whether allowing him back so easily is appropriate.

Bad ass unicorn though, I have to admit.

My guess is he was wrongly permabanned, Vpn users get permabanned every few months ( happened to me twice in the last year), you just have to appeal and say you used a vpn, and they unban you.

Location Twilight Highlands

Credits: Founder and creator of this Embersilk Farm is "Zlafterlife" Twitch
Credits: Farmer in the video is "Norrski" Twitch

This spot was producing over 8000+ embersilk per hour before nerf. When Afterlife and Norrski were testing it. But now its producing 2-3k+ embersilk cloth an hour depending on how many people are farming the spot. The more people farming the faster the mobs spawn.

*Here is a direct link to the video if the above one does not work> The video shows a glimpse at the farm spot so you can understand how the farm itself works.

Avoiding few boss mechanics.

This is a general tip to avoid boss mechanics where boss does somekind of a jump or leap then if you taunt him you can taunt him and boss doesn't do his ability

This works in scarlet halls for Armsmaster Harlan when he is about to do blades of light you can just taunt him just when he does it it's really hard to time you most likely need dbm timers for this.

In scarlet monastery it works for Brother Korloff when he is about to do Firestorm Kick. Works sameway as Armsmaster Harlan's blades of light just taunt him when he is about to do it.

Works for kil'ruk the Wind-Reaver's reave ability on heroic also.

I can imagine that this trick works for every similiar boss ability where they leap or something before they do ability. Just try to keep this in mind while going for WoD bosses and see if we can find more abilities where we can abuse this!

Daily Routine To Avoid Gold Issues | Helps Start Making Gold Or Expand Your Markets

Below is a tiny fraction of my daily routine, a routine I have been running for a long time which has helped me become gold capped as many times as I have been. Some of the stuff you may know / do, some of it you may over look with no idea how much it can actually net you. So next time your standing in the city doing nothing but staring at all the people around you figuring out what you wanna do next give this a try. After you get it down you will come up with your own route to knock this out every day to expand your auction house markets as well as increase your gold income.

Battered Hilt / Frostweave & Infinite Dust Farm via Pit of Saron @ Icecrown (Northrend)

Frostweave / Raw Gold Farm via Naxx Worm Farm - Plague Corner Prior To Dance Boss

Raw Gold Farm via Halls of Lightning @ Storm Peaks (Northrend)

Transmog Farm via Silithus / Winterspring

Raw Gold / BoE Recipe Farm Sunwell Plateau Trash

Magisters' Terrace (Heroic)

The Bastion of Twilight Trash

Deviate Fish

Embersilk Cloth via Verlokk Stand
(Despite popular belief there is a route you can take to have non stop killing still - Requires Treasure Finding Potion + Tailoring Bonus (Optional) To Maximize)

Embersilk Cloth via Ettins In Twillight Highlands
(There is multiple threads posted on this - Requires Treasure Finding Potion + Tailoring Bonus (Optional) To Maximize)

Primal Fires via Motes of Fire via Incandescen Fel Spark @ Throne of Kil'jaedan (Hellfire - Outland)

Black Tabby Cat via South Shore @ Hillsbrad Foothills

Cloth & Xmog via Zul'Farrak @ Tanaris

Ancient Guo-Lai Cache Key via any Shao-Tien mob in Vale. The chest these open can give you stacks of trade goods, 25+ gold per chest & additional sales. Not to mention it will give you a crack @ skyshards while farming them & you can sell the mount 10-35k depending on your realm & demand.

Solo ANY older raids / content you can. Majority of people have no idea what drops in old raids thats worth a lot of gold, you'd be suprised. A lot of gold comes from these, a lot of world drops can be found in old content as well.

New MMO research reveals that World of Warcraft earned more than $1 billion in 2013

A new report by SuperData Research reveals that Blizzard earned $1,041 billion in revenue from World of Warcraft in 2013. According to the research, WoW was by far the most successful MMORPG last year with a market share of 36%. Several important tiles have switched to free-to-play in recent years, but still earn revenue via microtransactions or other pay-to-win business models and were taken into consideration when compiling the list. SuperData Research lists the top 10 MMOs that “earn revenue from subscriptions, expansion packs, and microtransactions-based virtual items and services (e.g. experience boosts, items, mounts, and server transfer fees).”

The fact that World of Warcraft ranked number one is not exactly surprising given that the game has been the most popular MMORPG for many years now. Some of the other entries on the list have not been around for too long however, but have still managed to do very well. The original still Lineage hasn’t decreased in popularity last year and has earned rank 2 on the list with $253 million in revenue. Immediately behind it we find the action-packed Tera: Online, which became highly successful after swithing to FTP, a fact mirrored by the $236 million earned last year. Three more titles from NCsoft also made the list: Aion ($88 million), Blade and Soul ($65 million), and Lineage 2 ($45 million).

Fourth place is occupied by Bioware’s Star Wars: The Old Republic with $165 million. The funny thing is that most people considered the game to be a complete failure that didn’t live up to the hype. I mostly agree with the last part, but I wouldn’t consider SWTOR a failure and neither do lots of other people from the looks of it. But we need to note that Bioware did mention at one point that The Old Republic would “kill World of Warcraft”. We’re still waiting. The rest of the top 10 is not too surprising with Turbine’s Lord of the Rings Online grabbing 5th position with $105 million, veteran EVE Online sitting comfortably at number six with $93 million, and last but not least (or is it?), we have RIFT with $36 million.

Avoiding aggro from mobs

This is a general idea how to avoid combat but it works for me...

Occasionly youl will see a mob that has a pet like a cat boar or wolf.
These mobs - the pets - do not normally aggro onto your player, but if you get close enough to aggro the main mob controlling it, you will.

Also, more on this - if you use crowd control like sleep sap or sheep on the pet, you can kill the main mob and when you leave combat and the pet loses cc, usualy it will run back to where its owner died and then despawn

How to get gold for the first time.

So, you've decided to start playing wow, and need to make a little gold to get you started and pay for things. This is understandable, and not that hard to accomplish.

Here's how to do it:
  1. Start a Rogue.
  2. Level to 15 by questing, killing stuff, or pet battles. Choose the Nightstalker talent so you move faster in stealth.
  3. Level to 16. At this point, you learn Pick Pocket.
  4. (You're probably wondering how you can make gold picking pockets)
  5. Go to Northern Barrens. If you are playing Horde, you're probably already there.
  6. Pick the pockets of Kor'Kron mobs (not the Earthshakers)
Normal mobs at level 16 drop ~1 Silver to ~3 Silver.

The level 90 Kor'Kron mobs you are pickpocketing will drop ~38 Silver to ~72 Silver and occasionaly drop greys that vendor for 1g25s(and they stack).

Roll with coin if you don't have coins and didn't complete the weekly quest.

So this is the situation.

Lets say I just killed Ordos and after he dies I notice I forgot to do the weekly coins quest so I cant do another roll.. How can I roll without killing Ordos again?
  • step 1. Kill the boss.
  • step 2. Go quickly (prefer to use HS) and complete the coins quest.
  • step 3. Log out.
  • step 4. Log in.
Now you should see the roll window up and you can do your roll.
