WoW Classic Exploits: Runeblade of Rivendare OP healing snapshotting


The Runeblade of Rivendare is a sword that heals for for +20 HP5 and gives bonus movespeed, currently the snapshotting mechanic on the Runeblade of Rivendare is not working as snapshotting should.

How it is supposed to work is pull your +healing stat every time its going to heal and heal you for that amount +20, and a bit of negligible movespeed too.

How it currently works is upon equipping the sword it snapshots your +healing stat and never refreshes until you take off/re-equip the sword.


Heres how the bug works:

  1. Stack +Healing gear, as much as you can. My hunter managed to get up to a little under 500 with boes and some dungeon pieces like Briarwood reed.
  2. Equip the sword
  3. Equip your regular gear (leave the sword on)
  4. Every 5 seconds heal for that amount, in my case 490.

This is absolutely nuts in PVP as I have near full damage from my ranged weapon while also healing 500 per 5 seconds. To give some insight, this is over 5x more HP5 than a raid geared warlock receives from saccing their void walker. Good luck farming the sword and hopefully it doesn't get fixed before you can abuse this ^^.

WOW Classic: Infinite 100% afk friendly weapon skill



Here is a smart trick:

  1. Clear Dire Maul Tribute upto the last boss. Do not engage
  2. Walk up the ledge up to the spirits.
  3. Auto attack a spirit freely with any weapon. You will be locked in combat, but weapons can be swapped in combat.
I chose a spirit a bit further up the ledge for safety. As long as you dont aggro the boss you are good.


Some tips to get fast skillups can be swapping into full hit gear, get int buff and only use as fast weapons as possible. (DPS doesnt matter)

Bring all the weapons you want in one go and just swap out when desired skill is reached.


You will get AFK flagged as normally, so i think you will be automatically DC'ed after sometime, but im not 100% sure yet. Current max time tested is 20 min.



Kill boss when you are done if you want to.

Easy 'the legend of korrak' quest completion.

Are you like me, and only joining the special AV mid game, and missing the early Korrak zerg?

If so here is an easy way to complete this quest is to kill Korrak in Zul Drak (Northrend). 

Get your quest from AV, thn head to the Amphitheater (a ring of blood style quest). 

Assuming you have not done the quest before you should easily be able to kill Korrak, next AV game collect your weapon

Little tip, if you have already done the Zul Drak quest, party sync with someone who hasnt, it shoud allow you to do it again, just remember to leave party sync once Korrak spawns.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Cinematic Trailer









My question here is why was simply breaking the helm of domination enough to open the way to the Shadowlands?

Wasn't it forged by demons (Kil'jaeden I think?) and used to control undead? 

Why is it suddenly this powerful object that upon breaking will tear asunder into another dimension ?

This confused me greatly. The presenter at Blizzon said that, as King Terenas said "there must always be a Lich King" and now for the first time ever, there isn't one. Factually false, of course: the Lich King came into existence a relatively short time ago by WoW's history and Terenas referred to the LK as keeping the Scourge in check, not keeping the Shadowlands at bay.

Play Slots for Real Money



Statistics indicate that more online casino players prefer to play free slots than online slots for real money. The rationale though is that online casino players prefer to try out particular online slots for free before wagering real money. Playing free games is the best way to bonus features such as bonus rounds, free spins, multipliers and more, of new slots. Some prefer to play free mobile casino slot games because they feel that playing any casino game without wagering real money is the same as playing for real money. And then there are those who think playing for free is one way of beating one’s gambling problem.

The reality is that playing online slots or any other online casino game, without wagering real money, lacks the excitement of a true online casino gaming experience.

It is easy enough to play slots for real money. There are plenty of credible and legal online casinos to choose from. A player has to register by creating an account, providing all the necessary details asked by the casino website. It is required to have a credit or debit card for deposit options. Other options for deposits and withdrawals include Skrill, NE teller, PayPal, wire or bank transfers and more. A registered player who has made his initial deposit will be eligible to enjoy casino bonuses such as welcome bonus, first deposit bonus, matching bonus and even no-deposit bonus.

Other table games offered by online casinos include poker and blackjack. These games are not playable for free, and are not meant for practice rounds. Most online casinos offer live blackjack, even mobile blackjack casinos for convenience of players.

Free spins are free games afforded to casino players as incentives to gravitate them towards newly-released slot games. Practice rounds are afforded players, thus giving them the advantage of learning the slot’s play before they bet for real money.



Through casino bonuses such the no-deposit bonus offered by large online casinos, it is possible to play online slots for real money without spending one’s own money. However, certain terms and conditions apply so it is best to read the fine print regarding casino bonuses.

The Alliance story is at its best when it operates independent from the Horde, instead of solely being their foil.



As I replay classic and enjoy the human leveling experience, I can’t help but ask myself why the story just feels so much better than it does in Battle for Azeroth. It feels more weighted somehow, more “real.”

Then it hits me, the main alliance conflict in Classic can exist almost completely without the Horde. The alliance deal with the Defias, with Duskwood, with their missing King, and of course Orcs/Horde, but the Horde is only one small enemy among many.

The faction war still exists, but it’s not the main driving conflict, and that feels a lot better, a lot more real. The problem with Blizzard is they constantly go back to “Total War” expansions like Cataclysm, like BFA, like Mists, and warlords. Notice the faction conflict expansions are generally the weakest?(with the exception of Pandaria which was great in terms of content)

These total war expansions always focus on the Horde story, the horde having to stop a bad guy within their ranks. Of course there’s other world threats, but the faction war is equally driving in the story than the world threat in those expansions.

So what happens with these total war expansions, is the alliance simply become a foil, an afterthought. The “evil” horde must stop the bad guy within them! While the alliance...must help? It’s boring and overdone.

The individual Kul Tiras alliance experience was one of the best parts of BFA. If that was the main focus instead of Sylvanas and the Horde, the expansion would’ve been better, in my opinion.

WOW Classic: 3 man stealth DM North farming 50-70g + /hour Low risk, high reward.



So I made a video walkthrough of dire maul 3 manning tribute. You can do this with any comp really, though I'd reccomend either 2 druids and rogue, or 3 druids.

With 3 man, you don't have to respec or anything which saves (me at least 100g) everyone gold since when you three man you make the boss fight easy.



I will come out with a two man guide later on when It's a bit more viable, but right now it's not. The most I've seen from a two man team is 3 resets in an hour, which generally makes it less gph the ngetting a definite 5/hour with a three person group, not to mention the effort put in.

Three manning just makes it so easy, did I mention that you don't even need to bother respeccing?

Any questions hit me up.

WoW Classic:(Warlock) Have more than one enslaved demon at a time

Today I was farming Felcloth at Jadefire area in Felwood. I enslaved one of the Hellfire casters. 

I was killing one of the Jadefire Trickster mobs when it used its mind control, which only lasts a few seconds.

I noticed once I was out of the MC, that the spellbar for my enslaved demon was gone, I couldn't control it. 

It would however still engage whatever I was fighting. I enslaved a new Hellfire caster mob, and to my surprise the other one was still enslaved. 

I was able to run around for the next few mins with two functional demons. I didn't test it further, but I'm guessing it might even be possible to have even more enslaved demons this way.

Hey WoW Fans, What’s the Game Missing?



If you ask a bunch of World of Warcraft fans that question, there’s no telling the answers you’d get. I’ve been around WoW since beta and I’ve seen so many things come and go. Who remembers the days when you had to use Thotbot to look up your questions? Okay, I am dating myself now.

Anyway, what if WoW had gambling? Do you think it’d make a lot more players stick around? In a way, it does, but not in the traditional sense. Let’s explore…

There is no official game mode in WoW that allows gambling. However, that doesn’t stop many players and guilds from setting up their own games. Blizzard doesn’t seem to take issue with this, provided you keep it private and what happens between players stays between players.

Blizz doesn’t really care all that much, but they won’t openly promote or encourage it. Why do you think that is? I don’t think it has to do with a fake moral stance (like Disney tries to present) but really it’s more of an admin/moderator issue. Blizzard does not want to have to deal with a bunch of players crying because they lost or were cheated in some game. Can you imagine the chaos?

Anyway, if you want to enjoy some great online gambling, you may have to move away from WoW. Don’t worry, it isn’t going anywhere.

And there are lots of great websites that offer an online casino for real money gaming. This means you can take your pick and have good fun and you don’t have to worry about living close to a casino or even getting dressed to go out.

Play in your pajamas – like you do WoW – no one is going to know or care. If you want another great site, with a casino online bonus, Look for Casino Pro or similar sites. These are great because they typically offer bonuses to get you started, as well as to keep you in the game.

They know how to pull you in and keep you in – just like Blizzard. And there are a lot of benefits to playing these slots and casino games online. For one, it’s safe and really easy. For two, there are a lot of games to choose from so you don’t have to worry about getting bored.

You also get a lot of flexibility and you can test many of the games for free to see how you really like them before investing your money. So, what are you waiting for? It’s better than watching the Auction House to see if you’re going to get lucky.

WoW Classic: Leatherworking flip that makes 100g+/hour


Hey guys, its Farts again, back with another gold making video. So this is just a simple flip I do to make some big golds.

Heres the video:


And you can find the summary of the flip written below:

First of all, you do need to have leatherworking at 280+ skill, you will also need enchanting, but you can do this on a level 5 alt (I know I say level 1 in the video, my bad). What we're going to be doing is crafting Wicked Leather Headband, disenchanting it and selling the mats we get. It's a pretty simple flip, but obviously you want to get your leatherworking mats as low as possible. The Headband requires 12 Rugged Leather and I tend to only buy Rugged leather at 7 silver each through trade chat. Obviously, you can go and farm this yourself for 100% profit (minus the rune thread and dye), it's completely up to you.

Now, the reason why this flip is pretty insane is that there's around a 30% chance of getting 1-2 Greater Eternal Essence. On my server and many others, these are around 4g50s each, which is pretty much 3.7x the crafting cost of the Headband. So there's a lot of room for profit with this flip, especially if you hit a string of 2x Eternal Essences.

Win every Pet Battle by becoming immune to all attacks indefinitely!



Blizzcon 2019 gift pet is Gilvanas. It has a new pet ability, Raise Dead, that I don't think Blizz fully thought through and likely will be fixing this soon, so use it while you can!

Basically, you need to have an Undead Pet with the "Lift-Off" ability.

These are all the following undead pets with it:

  • Blighthawk
  • Bone Serpent
  • Bones
  • Drowned Hatchling
  • Son of Sethe

Pick whatever 3rd pet you want. I am a big fan of faster speed pets.

To trigger it, just do the fight mostly normal, except save the Lift-Off ability of your undead pet until you need it. 

You CAN use Gilvanas early in the fight with the "Haunt" ability, especially if against a human opponent. Just don't crash their health until the undead pet does the following trick. 

When you are using your Undead pet with the Lift-Off ability, fight like normal until you die and are revived. Once you are revived and immune for your last attack, Lift-Off. The conventional wisdom is to not do this because you die and lose out on an attack. 

Your opponent will think you are dumb. You see, what happens is you immediately die up in the air. Here, swap in Gilvanas and cast the new ability "Raise Dead". 

Not only will it bring your 2 back row pets back to life at 5% HP, the Undead pet is now completely invulnerable and immune because it revives the pet in the "Lift-Off" phase of being up in the air.

You can still attack, but every attack against you will miss. Every single one! Over and over and over!

Of note, you DO need to be aware of other pets with faster speed and forced swapping, as they can swap you out before you do the lift-off trick.

 If that happens this won't work, so try to time it so you aren't facing one of them on that cast.

Sucessfull WPE operation & search for profit


I have reveived the old methods of package editing with WPE Pro.
Since the tool and methods are very old, I am aware that most of the currently active Private Servers are protected against altered packages.

Somehow I found a way to bypass some of the checks. I am messing around on Kronos Vanilla (1.12) in late 2019.
My first attempts to bug bags with items stacks:
I basically took out items from stacks in a bag, which I managed to freeze with WPE.
Баг на дюп с почтой - Золотой Секрет WoW
I traded those stacks to another char and attempted to log out. After logging back in, those frozen stacks should reappear => dupe.
This method got several of my accounts auto-banned, as the server calculated the items in the background.
I checked on them on the twinstar.cz webpage and found "banned for: item dupe".

I was aware that the old method won't work today. But it helped me to get a basic understanding of the communication between my WoW client and the server.
I decided to try something out myself, and found a package Filter I can apply. I am able to make items disappear without any confirmation.
This sounds terrible at first, but means that there are checks the server doesn't make.
Can we exploit it for profit instead of loss?

Preparations:
open WoW.exe, log in
open WPE Pro(admin) & Permedit(grant privileges to WPE)
(I downloaded following: DepositFiles)
attach WPE to WoW.exe
-
open Extreme Injector v3
Extreme Injector v3.7 (2018 Updated)
target WoW.exe
load Whiff.dll, don't inject yet
GitHub - Zedron/Whiff: Whiff is an injection sniffer for WoW (World of Warcraft) written in C++
-
open characters inventory, bag 1
place a stack of items into the second slot
//preparations end

Action Log:
Now let's see what is happening there:
inject Whiff.dll
start logging in WPE
ingame: Shift+Click the item stack mentioned above
enter any number of items (i take 3) and put them into the slot right below the origin

stop logging
Ctrl+Q in you Whiff window to stop sniffing

Reading the log:
I used WoWParser to make the wowsniff.pkg readable.
GitHub - TrinityCore/WowPacketParser: World of Warcraft Packet Parser
I opened the parsed wowsniff and searched for "ClientToServer" packages, and quickly found my item split.
https://pastebin.com/PxuHwTPf
//
ClientToServer: CMSG_SPLIT_ITEM (0x010E) Length: 5 ConnIdx: 0 Time: 10/05/2019 17:03:39.188 Number: 40
Bag: -1
Slot: 24
Destination Bag: 255
Destination Slot: 28
Count: 3
//
Then I looked at my WPE packages and found this package quickly as well:
split_water.jpg
WPE log:
90 68 AE A8 B1 DE FF 18 FF 1C 03
What we can point out:
FF: start bag
18: start slot
FF: destination bag
1C: destination slot
03: count

Another WPE log of the same log breaks the pattern of the first numer chain:
85 A9 63 94 4A 1C --- FF 18 FF 1C 03

After this find I messed around with the numbers I was able to determine.
We CAN:
alter the item count. We will trade the specified number then until the stack doesn't contain enough.
alter the item origin slot. We will then split another item, if there is one which is splittable. Otherwise the game retuns "There is no such item"

alter the Destination Slot. If the slot doesn't exist, the item will just disappear without confirmation by user.
Now this is something I find strange. It show's that Warden doesn't seem to care about item losses. Can we use this "void" somehow?

I have also tried to get a detailed deobfuscated package from my WoW.exe using x64dbg and OverwatchDumpFix.
https://x64dbg.com/#start
But tbh, I could not figure out how to execute the OverwatchDumpFix in x64dbg.
https://github.com/changeofpace/Overwatch-Dump-Fix
I cannot get pass by this Step:
1. Attach x64dbg to Overwatch.exe then execute the OverwatchDumpFix command.
Attaching - yes. But how do I load the file and the command inside x64dbg?

My hope is to be able to read the entire WPE package after getting a deobfuscated WoW pkg.

WoW Classic gold guide: 50-70g/hour dungeon farm


This guide is gonna be about farming Small Radiant Shards in RFD.


You will need level 1 enchanting but that's it, any class can do this farm.

Before you comment "you stealthed through it" yes, I did because I can. You don't need to stealth if you're careful enough, and even if you pull you should be able to handle packs of trash anyway, if you can't then you probably can't solo the bosses either.

Enjoy and good luck!
