How to get the Mysterious Corrupted Obelisk before area opened

So far only been able to do this with a mage.

Just go to the Vault of the Earth, find the wall of fire and use blink.

Should be able to pass right through and collect the toy, which will give you the achievement if you have collected the other 50 Toys.

This is just minor, but someone might find some use for it.

Get more Wild Gladiator items and Conquest Point when doing a catch-up

I just realize something. Last week I didn't complete my Ashran quests (Ashran Dominance & Slay Them All!) so I get into Ashran this week and when I queue for it 2 new quests pop so I ended with 2 of each quest in my quest log.

I still haven't finished both but I got partial credit in one for killing the Ally boss and in the other for killing some allys (quest ask you to kill 200).

This is not an exploit or gives you any advantage right now but if you got tons of alts or not doing pvp right now, just remember to pickup the quests each week so they stack and you can complete 10 quests by doing only 2 for example.

This is the SS that proves that I got both quests in my quest log and getting progress on both at the same time: 

Btw the Ashran Dominance quest gives you a epic season item so this can help you a lot if you want to gear alts fast, even for pve cause items are 700 pve (730 pvp) ivl.

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


  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:
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.

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!
