Was Warlords of Draenor Just a Filler? - Ending Cinematic Leaked



All things - good or bad - have to come to an end and it looks like World of Warcraft's popular expansion, Warlords of Draenor, responsible for bringing hundreds of thousands of players back to the game, has reached the end of the line with patch 6.2. It is now clear that the said patch is about the final assault in Hellfire Citadel, but what's not quite as well-known is the fact that the final boss of this raid will be none other than Archimonde, who will obviously have to be defeated. The ending cinematic has apparently been leaked, it can be viewed on YouTube and it is indeed about Archimonde's defeat.

While from a technical perspective, the sequence is indeed quite flawless, fans have expressed displeasure with the turn it will have added to the story. This way, the entire Warlords of Draenor expansion may be reduced to little more than a side-note, a filler of sorts, meant to steer the story towards the bringing back of Grom and Gul'Dan.
With all the gloom and doom, it is still worthy to note than Blizzard haven't actually reacted in any way to the leaked cinematic yet. Patch 6.2 comes with new boss raids, new challenges and a flying mount, in addition to the apparently disappointing final stroke.

The good news for fans of the game is though that WoW is far from wrapping up: there's actually a new expansion in the works, and although there's currently little known about it, it seems like it will be centered on Azshara, the elven queen responsible for the summoning of the Burning Legion and Sargeras to Azeroth. Blizzard have apparently made moves to trademark the title "Eye of Azshara" so that's quite telling.

Faster Unseen Influence quest

This is totally minor but can save you 30 minutes a day while doing your Tanaan daily quests.

When you are in a raid party killing the 4 rare elites that drops mounts and rep tokens in Tanaan Jungle (Doomroller, Vengeance, Terrorfist & Deathtalon) you won't get Fel-Corrupted Apexis Fragments cause you are in a raid group. Lots of people use crossrealm to do this cause is faster and easier.

The little trick to get your Fel-Corrupted Apexis Fragments from this rare elites when you are crossrealm is to leave the raid when rare is about to die and loot it without been on a party. You won't be ported back to your realm cause you are in combat and you will have some seconds before the rare dies to loot it. If you want more time you just need to pull something else that keeps you in combat before the rare die and stay in combat for the time it takes you to loot it.

Tanaan FoS/Predator title

6.2 added a very rare mob Xemirkol in the tanaan jungle that awards you a new Feast of Strength for killing it and grants you the title Predator (Arnold says hi).

  1. Get revered with the faction "Order of the Awakened" - if you´re loaded, we are doing this with Medallion of the Legion.  via AH buying or farming them from the 4 rare mobs
  2. Buy Hunters Seeking Crystal and upgrade it to the epic version - Master Hunter's Seeking Crystal
  3. Go to the now broken starting area that you entered tanaan in at level 90 on the east side and use it
  4. Xemirkol hits fairly hard and has around 3 million health so you need a proper geared char to kill it.
  5. Make a new char with the name "jailbait" or "teengirl" and enjoy your new title.

The mob on most realms is probably up so if you are the first one to do this you´ll get a kill, no idea on his respawn timer though.

Take a dungeon boss out of the deadmines, potentially gamebreaking applications



Instructions:


  1. Go to Deadmines mast room, attach Helix gearbreaker to your head.
  2. Port somewhere.


Wackiness follows. Heelix will follow you through the port and can't be killed.


 

There are multiple versions of Heelix all over the realms at the moment, people are having a lot of fun with this.
The 85 version throws bombs around and does the stuff he does in the instance.

There is a potentially gamebreaking application here: if you port into a raid with Heelix then any player that can use leech on him can potentially become invulnerable. Damage on low level mobs scales up into huge numbers and leech converts this into healing. (proof: test dps on low level target dummies in sw with a warrior using second wind or a rogue using leech poison, the healing is insane).

Blizzards way of making me cry

poor dude, just want's his good ol' ma's cooking!




Used to love finding all these little bits hidden around.

My first character was Forsaken, and most of the starting quests/Tirisfal Glades/UC ones pre-Cata were fairly depressing.

This is another tearjerker,

Farming Champions of Hellfire Citadel mobs more effectively





The Champions of Hellfire Citadel are the 4 Elite Rares mobs needed for the Achievement Hellbane.


They drop the following Items:


100x Oil
(100% Dropchance)
Tundra Icehoof
(LOW Dropchance)
Armored Razorback
(LOW Dropchance)
Warsong Direfang
(LOW Dropchance)
Medallion of the Legion
(Gives 1000 Rep, can be sold for a lot!) (LOW Dropchance)



These mobs can be found at the following locations:




To farm them more effectively, serverhopping is necessary.

To do so, you look out for groups alerting their spawn on their realm via the "Premade Group Finder".

As the progress of checking for open groups is pretty annoying, I found a AddOn which checks in a manually set intervall for special tags contained in the groupname and automatically joins the groups.

>>> Premade Group Finder (PGF) <<<





By following these steps, you should be able to kill all the 4 Rares in no time:

1. Install Premade Group Finder

2. Since 6.2, you can filter for which Realm Languages you would like to search in the Premade Groups Finder:


Tick all the options.

3. Open the Premade Group Finder Options tab by writing /pgf in the chat

4. Copy & paste the following tags:
HTML Code:
terrorfist
vengeance
deathtalon
doomroller
terrorfaust
rache
todeskralle
verdammniswalze
horropuño
garramuerte
fatalitas
venganza
pugnocupo
graffiamorte
vendetta
cingolata
Кулак
Коготь
Отмщение
Пушка 
5. If wanted, you can change the checking-intervall time. (e.g. 10 secs)

6. As soon as someone creates a group containing one of the tags, you'll be automatically joining it.

7. ???

8. Profit.

Review of Top Five Casino & Gambling Games of the World





For a lover of cards and table games, it is like an exploration. He goes on trying different games, finds his favorite one, and apparently plays that one for a long time. However, for a real players, who somewhat know the rules of the games and plays for serious money, it is suggested to go ahead with some fast-hand casino games review so that the time and money invested gets its due. Here are reviews of the top five card and table games played by uncountable game enthusiasts of the recent times all over the world.

Genie Jackpots Vegas Millions
Genie Jackpots Vegas Millions is an upfront name among the slot machine games played worldwide. Brought to you by William Hills, a casino operator from England, this slots game has created many rags in to riches; and, hence justifiably earned the title of the ‘Biggest Jackpot’ of all slot machine games. This 5-Reel, 20-Line is curated in to a wonderful Arabian themed slot. What makes this game more interesting is the various bonus features, such as the ‘Wild Symbols’, ‘Mystery Win Bonus’, and the ‘Magic Carpet Bonus’. On the top the ‘3-Wishes Power Spins’ appears at any moment to enhance your chance of winning in the game.

Kingdom of Wealth
One of the most rewarding online casino games, Kingdom of Wealth is such a game that hardly needs a review to claim its popularity. A 5-reel, 30-Line slot machine, it is developed with a ‘Medieval’ theme, including funny characters and objects. As soon as you hit the '+' and '-' TOTAL STAKE buttons, you will be given a choice to select a Total stake of anywhere between 50p and £250. There are ‘Wild Symbols’ that you can be used to form line wins.


Red Dragon
Developed by 1X2 gaming, Red Dragonis a slot machine game with a layout of 5 x 3 reels and 25 paylines. For new players, the game offers the best combination of design and gameplay. This simple game offers two special features - free spins and a bonus round.With 3, 4 or 5 scatters, the game triggers a round of 10, 20 or 30 free spins respectively that amazingly multipliers all the winnings by 2.


Thai Princes
Enriched with amazing Asian theme, Thai Princess is one of the best 5-Reel, 20-Line Slot game. With an exciting free spins bonus, it enables you to unlock additional reel sets, where each of them has their own upgrade. As soon as you press the 'START' button, the reels spin and the symbols start to stopin view at random. When a combination of symbols appearing on the reels forming a matching line of 3, 4 or 5, a win is highlighted.


King Tut' Tomb
An Egyptian themed game, ‘King Tut's Tomb’ is a colorful, well-animated slot machine game that includes superb quality animations and sound effects. This 5 x 3 Reels, 25 paylines game is added with expandable wild symbols, a great round of free spins, and a decent paytable. When an image of a pharaoh appears, it represents the wild symbol. The reason why it has made it to the list is its thoughtful presentation and nice design and development.

15k-20k Saberstalkers rep per hour

Where: Tanaan Jungle, Fang'rila (northeastern corner)
Coords: 61.92, 73.04

About 8 or so Blackfang elites on a very short respawn timer. You can kill 7-10 per minute give or take. With guild banner and trading post rep increase (15% & 20%) you get about 34.5 rep per kill, 37 if you are human. Over an hour that gets you anywhere from 15,000 to 20,000 rep depending on how quickly you are killing things. Not to mention all of the claws.

There is also a rare elite that spawns every 30 minutes that gives you 690 rep.

I was looking through my ancient Bradygames guide for vanilla WoW and found their class descriptions

All these years I thought I just sucked at the game. Now I KNOW I suck at the game, but warlocks were underpowered in vanilla too. Somehow I feel a lot better


Rogues are scissors
Warriors are rock
Hunters, paladins, priests, druids,mages, and shamans are paper
Warlocks are mushrooms
Paper beats rock
Scissors beats paper
Scissors also happens to beat rock

That is until rock hits level 60 and becomes an unstoppable killing machine and beats paper and would beat scissors, but it can't find scissors because scissors are invisible.

So scissors beat paper and avoid rock, and that is called balance.

World first mounts, apexis crystals, and pants




A few months back, I read about Blizzard's change to the Corrupted Dreadwing, making it be a 150,000 Apexis Crystal purchase, the only problem was you could only hold 60,000 crystals until patch 6.2 launced (today). Suddenly, I had a goal, farm and hoard 150,000 apexis crystals before the patch. A seemingly impossible task.

But how did I do it then?



The answer? Pants. Over the course of 2 months, I did Apexis dailies as usual earning up crystals, buying pairs of Crystalhide Legguards for 5,000 crystals each with a 2 hour return window, and returning/rebuying them every 1.5 hours so the timer never expired.



As time progressed, my hoard grew, logging off each day after doing my dailies.


At last, I had all 20 pairs totaling 100,000 crystals in returns, and the 50,000 in my inventory. I was ready!



That brings us to today, I returned the pants for their newly increased cap, and set off for Tanaan. 



And there we have it! the worlds first Corrupted Dreadwing!

Making Gold Off Names - 6.2 Edition

With 6.2, any character that hasn't logged on since the launch since the end of WotLK - 7th of December 2010 will have their name made available, and this means there are some very rare, lucrative and profitable names floating around.

When they originally did this in 6.0.2, I collected a whole lot of names and made close to one million gold among a number of realms, and many other people in the thread made some nice gold too. So it's time to get collecting and selling once again!

With the upcoming Warlords of Draenor patch (6.2), we will be releasing sidelined characters’ names back into the wild. Any characters that have not logged into the game since December 7, 2010 will have their names freed up, making them available to anyone creating a new character or using the paid Character Name Change service.
How Do I Preserve My Names?
You will need to log in to World of Warcraft and enter the game using each character whose name you wish to retain before patch 6.2 goes live. While it is possible no one will claim your recently released name and you might be able to snag it again, it is probably not worth the risk if you want to keep your names intact long-term.
Our goal with this great name liberation is to make sure new and returning players have a large and varied pool of names available to choose from—so log in now if you wish to preserve your unused characters’ names for your ongoing journey through Draenor.
The Name I wanted wasn’t freed!
Going forward, we expect to free inactive names around the release of new expansions. Prior to the reclamation process, we’ll post more information on the timeframe this will occur to allow you the opportunity to preserve your name.
Here's the basic method:

Step 1) Trial accounts (you can skip this step if you have access to a number of accounts as is) Make a new Battle.net account with whatever details you want, it doesn't really matter. I just use my real details, and then add a trial account. You'll want a seperate account to the account you're selling on so you can collect your gold and sell names without having to log in and out of your main.

 Step 2) Names I've prepared a somewhat decent list of possible names which is by no means complete, so of course you're encouraged to try anything else you think of. In addition to these names, you can try common Name and Female names from real life, as well as random combinations of 2 letters.

Simply create level 1 characters on the realm you wish to sell them on on your trial account. If you run out of room, add another trial account.

I find it useful to keep a list of what names are on which account.

Step 3) Finding Buyers

Go to trade chat (preferably on a high level so people don't dismiss you as a scammer) and make an advertisement similar to the following

{square}{square} Interested in a rare name? {square}{square} I have (X) number of names for sale, including - (list some of the better ones here) - PST for more information and pricing! {square}{square}

Step 4) Selling

How you want to sell it is really between you and your buyer. I personally do the following:

Accept half the price up-front on my main account. Ask the buyer to hop on Vent if they don't have a second account, or to also log on their second account if they do.

Ask them to create a level one and type in the name they're buying but don't create it. Once they've told you they're ready, you delete the character and tell them to take it.

Collect your gold and GG.

Why does this work?

WoW is essentially ten years old now, and some of the servers have been out just as long. Getting a good or unusual name is becoming harder and harder as time goes on, and with people having more gold than they know what to do with - rerolling a new alt for 6.2 to raid/PvP with being whatever is FotM, people are willing to fork out decent sums for a good name.

I can't guarantee you'll make any gold, but if you find yourself AFKing in Trade a lot on your main or alt account, you're essentially getting free money for nearly no effort.

Bonus Resources for additional names:

Popular names for girls - Top girls names - Female names - 2014 - RandomNames.com
Popular names for boys - Top boys names - Male names - 2014 - RandomNames.com

Major characters - WoWWiki - Your guide to the World of Warcraft

Spell names work well:

Warrior - Class - World of Warcraft
Paladin - Class - World of Warcraft
Hunter - Class - World of Warcraft
Rogue - Class - World of Warcraft
Priest - Class - World of Warcraft
Death Knight - Class - World of Warcraft
Shaman - Class - World of Warcraft
Mage - Class - World of Warcraft
Warlock - Class - World of Warcraft
Monk - Class - World of Warcraft

Full Disclosure:

GM's have stated multiple times that this is not a bannable offense:

Question about ToS and selling names - Forums - World of Warcraft
Is it allowed to sell character names for gold? - Forums - World of Warcraft

While I'm of the firm belief that this is perfectly acceptable given the public GM stances on this not being against the rules, my personal experiences with a GM on this topic, and that the GM handling eloivanelst's case was inexperienced or not knowledgeable on the topic, I'm providing this in the main thread so everyone is aware of possible risks.

Good luck, have fun and make some gold!

Cozy Bonfire toy has collision.

This item apparently can be deployed indoors as well, make it useful for both creating a new area to potentially grow glitch out of a map as well as blocking a narrow pathway. It does not disappear if you log out and alts do not share cooldowns, allowing you to deploy a large number of them at once.

You can get the toy for 350 burning blossoms from the event vendor.

Shipyard - Finish mission instantly

In 6.2 Blizzard is adding the Shipyard, it works kinda like the command table we got in our Garrison but the mission will last much longer, up to 48 hours.

If you have mission complete orders that you get from your Mage Tower alliance / Spirit lodge horde you can finish these missions instantly!

Awesome for the new mythic cache missions that you now get from the shipyard and the legendary quest line missions.
