New quest that leaves a black powder trail behind your character. (beta)

The amount of dicks that will be drawn during this quest will be staggering. Someone call the people over at Guinness' book of World Records right now. But when you turn in the quest the quest text says "Now don't you go doing anything inappropriate with that powder."

I'm sure Blizz knew exactly what they were doing.

WoW Transmog Guide: Water Jetpack

This is a relatively unknown little animated transmog item called the I-Scream Cryocannon and it looks like it might be unobtainable come Warlords of Draenor. To get it you need to complete a quest chain ending in thousand needles. Te quest you need is called Special Delivery for Brivelthwerp and to keep the jetpack you leave it in your log indefinitely so long as the quest item is in your bags you will keep the visual jetpack.

You can skip to the video below where Bryan walks you through the quest chain necessary to unlock the Water Jetpack or follow the written instructions..

  1. Start in Ferelas with the quest: The Grimtotem are Coming 
  2. Accept the next quest and start the worlds longest boat ride. 
  3. Complete the quest Down in the Deeps 
  4. Accept the quest Bar Fight! & head downstairs to the Innkeeper buy a Bottle of Grog & use it on any goblin. 
  5. The next quests are self explanatory, bang them out then head to the boat and accept Special Delivery for Brivelthwerp from Mazzer Stripscrew. 
  6. Keep the quest in your quest log and as long as the item is in your bags it will appear on your back. 
  7. Simply stick it in your bank if you want to take a break from it.

Bypass walls and pvp invulnerability exploits

Walk through walls in Strand of the Ancients.

When defending, put down a mushroom chair in the exact location shown in the video in round 1.
In round 2, jump on the chair and walk straight through the gate, without the need to destroy it.
Your whole team can do this.

Semi-invulnerability while defending Isle Of Conquest.

Put down a chair underneath the gate when it goes up at the start of the bg. When the gate comes
down again, jump on the chair and inside the gate. This is very powerful for defenders. It allows you
to bypass the teleport cooldown and move in and out of the keep at will, defuse bombs without
interrupts and, on the edge of the gate, puts you in a semi-invulnerable state where you can draw
multiple attackers without being seriously damaged.

Defend flags in Deepwind Gorge protected by a teleport field.*

Place darkmoon tiger inside one of mines at the beginning of the releport field. Jump on the tiger
using Votuus's early start method (Early Start in Battlegrounds 5.4.8 By VoTuUS - World of Warcraft Movies).

This allows you to defend the flag protected from all melee attacks, as melee attackers are instantly
ported out if they get close to you.

Ninja cap carts in Silvershard Mines inside the drop-off points.

Put down a mushroom chair inside one of the payload deposit points at the exact point shown in
the video. This makes you invulnerable to melee as no one can get in there easily, and protected
from range attacks on three sides. Particulary for stealth using classes this makes ninja-capping
carts very easy.

Blizzard has "six or seven" World of Warcraft expansions planned; "easily 10 years worth of stuff"

World of Warcraft director Tom Chilton has revealed that Blizzard have “six or seven” expansions planned for their iconic MMORPG. While the expansion that will arrive after Warlords of Draenor is already in active development, a number of others clocking up “10 years worth of stuff” are being discussed.

“I think it’ll be quite a while before the financials indicate that it’s just not worth doing anymore."

Speaking to Gameplanet, Tom Chilton confirmed that they’re already thinking far into the future of World of Warcraft. ”There are about six or seven different ideas for expansions that we can take elements of and say, ‘You know what? Let’s take that and put it in this one for our next expansion after the next one.’ Or we might shift the timelines around from what we originally envisioned. There’s easily 10 years worth of stuff that we can draw from – more, really.”

The expansion after the upcoming Warlords of Draenor is already in active development, and they’re already starting to think about next. “We are already in progress with our next expansion.” explained Chilton. “We already have zones in production for it. Our next expansion after that, we have a couple of different options that we’ll be choosing between over the next several months.”

When asked about the next decade of Word of Warcraft’s future, Chilton seems confident it’ll still be around. “I think that not only do we have content planned out for a good amount of time, I also think that while MMOs go through a life-cycle, the life-cycle tends to be very long.” stated Chilton. “As long as there are enough players demanding that we make more content then we’re likely to do so. I think it’ll be quite a while before the financials indicate that it’s just not worth doing anymore.”

Durumu the Forgotten

Durumu was one of the bosses I would really take my time and teach the LFR team about, no need to be a dick to anyone. I think it's pathetic when people get pissed off due to a few out of a massive group not understanding a fight. Not everyone started playing wow when you did, for all you know it's their first attempt on the boss and even if it's their hundredth attempt you should take the initiative and explain it to them, mark yourself and have them follow you.

If you really want an increase in the performance of players in random dungeons and raids you need to start being empathetic and teaching them strats, then one day you may get lucky and wind up in a group with a bunch of people who know the fight and have a positive attitude. I mean it's a fucking video game if you're not playing it to relax and have fun you shouldn't play it.

Tailor Gold Making Guide

Small Gold making Tip at the End of the expansion when people dump their shit - you need a TAILOR toon.

Scoop the AH for Windwool Cloth and buy any stacks at 14g or less. Also advertise in trade chat that youre looking for this.

Now what you craft is the 458 PVP Cloak for Strength Classes (of Prowess), as it vendors for 17g04s77c. Nets you a profit of 3g per Cloak, if done in bulks this is quite profitable similar to the Inscription MOP Herb Should Enchant Shuffle a the Start of the Expansion.

Hacker Problems in Azeroth

On Sunday, a hacker group called Lizard Squad swung into action against a number of highly vulnerable networks and online objectives with apparently one thing in mind: to create havoc and mayhem.

US users of the PlayStation network were unable to log on through their PS 3 and PS 4 consoles through Sunday. The message they were served said the network was down for maintenance.

The same hacker group has apparently managed to take down a number of Blizzard servers as well, disrupting World of Warcraft and a number of other online games like the eSports staple League of Legends and Path of Exile. 

According to the targeted operations, the hacker attack was essentially a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack, which overwhelmed the targeted servers and networks with artificially generated traffic. 

The same hacker group is also rumored to have made threats against a flight on which a Sony executive traveled. Apparently, the said American Airlines flight has been diverted to Phoenix, AZ as a cautionary measure. 

According to emails sent out by Sony late Sunday, most of the affected services had been restored. It is unclear at this point whether the WOW servers are back up as well. 

Exactly who these hackers have a bone to pick with is unclear at this point. What is known though in regards to the above said attacks is that the FBI is now involved in the investigation.

Fuck you, my orc is a beautiful creature

I feel like this analysis could absolutely break someone. This is basically a massive insecurity generator.

So that's why he wanted to destroy the world:

In his defense, you've indicated his ears incorrectly. Besides, why else do you think he'd have those goblins hammer those metal plates into him? And that damn Alexstrasza, just strutting around.

...Maybe he wasn't such a bad guy.

Robin Williams to be featured in WOW as an NPC

Robin Williams’ untimely death has certainly struck a chord with people all over the world, and the reactions to his apparent suicide were numerous and ran a wide gamut from rage and finger-pointing to sorrow and sympathy towards his family. Amid this controversy, Blizzard have apparently decided to pay a fitting tribute to the late comedian by including/immortalizing him in their World of Warcraft MMORPG.

According to some files picked up from the latest beta build of the game, the tribute will take the shape of an NPC, a genie, called Robin ;The Entertainer.

Since genies are capable of shape-shifting in the game, Robin, The Entertainer may take up a number of other incarnations. Popular among the players is the idea of a troll called Jumanji.

A human male may also be in the works, called Mork, as well as a female, a reference to the Mrs. Doubtfire character played by the late actor.

No actual details about any of the above said characters are yet known though. It is unclear what the NPC’s role will be, whether it will offer any quests and where exactly it’ll be located within the game world.

Fans have apparently also petitioned Nintendo to add a similar tribute to Robin Williams to its Legends of Zelda game, a petition heard, but not yet addressed by the company.

Social media has reacted in a wild and uncontrolled manner to the actor’s death, prompting his daughter to quit Twitter and Facebook to escape the slander and the unbridled abuse.

The incident elicited a response from Twitter as well. According to Del Harvey, Twitter’s vice president of trust and safety, a number of accounts have been suspended in the wake of the problems targeting Zelda Williams, and the social media site has begun a review of its policies in regards to such tragic situations.

Transmogrification: Diablo Inspired Angelic Priest

For this Diablo inspired angelic mog I could have gone mostly Priest PvE tier 5 but just wanted the shoulders. I also didn’t want robes hence the tunic that I used. I also try to keep to higher ilvl items for mogging as the item model’s resolution is higher and looks better closer up. All items can be easily farmed with the exception of the shoes which are from current Heroic raid content.

Weapons etc are personal choice and I thought the staff Devotion would have worked too.

Head: Cowl of Benevolence

Shoulders: Mantle of the Avatar

Chest: Shadow Council Tunic

Hands: Gloves of Unfailing Faith

Belt: Girdle of Nullified Infiltration

Pants: Leggings of Charity

Feet: Toxic Tornado Treads (ilvl 566)

Cape: Jina-Kang, Kindness of Chi-Ji

Non-Legendary Cape for mogging Bonelink Cape

Tabard: Unaffiliated Guild Tabard – or guild tabard with a white theme. Argent Crusader's Tabard Also works but isn’t as minimal.

Staff: Icecore Staff
