[Horde] 50g+ Per Hour grind

There is a repeatable quest in Shadowprey Village in Desolace named Fish in a Bucket. You simply need to swim around the water off the coast of the Village and loot the Shellfish Traps to obtain Shellfish. Each 5 shellfish lets you hand in the quest for 55s. You only need level 25 (Preferably 30+) to do this.

As a druid you can make 50g+ per hour if you are paying attention, and as a normal class you can still get upwards of 20g+~/hr depending on how contested the area is.

I highly advise using Azure Silk Belt if you are doing this. Also swim into the bubble fissures to reset your breath!

Enjoy

Shortcut to Mage Trainer - Size Clips work in Classic - "Teleports in Stormwind"


The Good Old Fashion Size Clip works in Classic WoW. I have used the Elixir of Giant Growth potion to increase my height like on Retail WoW, if positioned and used under a ceiling and then relogging. You can Jump trough the Ceiling

It is demonstrated in this Video 







I'm also showing off ways to get conveniently from stormwind to other locations using the stuck function but keep in mind when doing this that you either have to have deleted your heartstone or it's on cooldown otherwise it will just use your hearthstone instead of killing you.

  • "Teleportation" Locations Included
  • -Stormwind - Westfall(Sentinel Hill)
  • -Stormwind - Burning Stepps
  • -Stormwind - Searing Gorge
There is also a Shortcut you can do to get to the Mage Trainer of Stormwind more quickly if you don't have or don't want to use a teleportation rune.

Everything is shown in the Video above.

I assume that some of you know about this stuff but i just wanted to post it here because i didn't see it posted yet.

Gain access to Communities and x-realm chat in Classic WOW


Quite simple actually...

Press "O" on the keyboard to bring up your social window. It will be under the "Groups Tab"

Now, anyone can do this, but the problem is you are unable to link invites to Classic chat. However, Blizz missed a channel. The "SAY" channel

Yup, it's really that stupidly simple. So, if you are standing near someone, you can invite them within Classic WOW to your community as long as you do it as a /s SAY message. Otherwise, they will need to use the invite link and copy it to a browser.

I have fully tested this and I am able to communicate from 1 account to the other. I multibox so this was easy to test, but 1 account on Classic and 1 account in BFA and the community comms work just fine.

I can't help but feel this is unintended? Does Blizz really want us to be linking to communities in Classic to invite people to?

Item linking does not work. I have tried

Of note, it doesn't send the chat to your chat window, so to read it you do need to have the Communities Interface open and communicate back and forth.

1 week later..

So many doomsayers saying the game was gonna die. Boy we all wanted classic for a reason, it's got a very addicting gameplay. Someone rolls a warrior and finds out about Ravager? I'm living in Scarlet Monastery til I get that. And then you might as well get to 60.



Here is a trick. Use the remote access (using google) your comp fron work before driving home.

Setting up on the pc:
  • Open web browser on the computer you want to remote access (the wow one)
  • Go to remotedesktop.google.com/access/
  • Follow the onscreen instructions to setup pc. (There are two tabs at the top, remote access and remote support, make sure to have Remote Access selected)
  • The final step will ask to create a unique pin. Make it easy for you to remember. 4.5) Name your pc (MAIN RIG or something)
  • Once the above is done. Minimize all windows and open battle.net launcher with wow selected
  • Go to work

Setting up on phone (android):
  • Open the play store. If apple, i think itll probs be in the app store.
  • Download and install " Chrome Remote Desktop ". (There are imitators, make sure to get the google one)
  • Open the app
  • Login to app using the same google account as on pc
  • Select the appropriate desktop
  • Swiping moves the mouse around, tapping the screen is a click.

Trying to fix the timeline.



"Look, whatever you do, don't leave the Horde to go to the alternate-reality version of Draenor to be come a farmer with your wife."

"...oh yeah. Uh, I might have skipped some stuff. So, there's an alternate-reality version of Draenor, and, uh, you have a wife... Her name? Uhhh, 'aggro' or something. Look, I skipped the questline where you sailed with her into the Maelstrom to become an ascended god or whatever because the Darkmoon fair was in town and I really wanted that turtle mount and... Shit, before I forget, by any chance does Cairne owe you any money? Because you're really going to want to collect it soon."

I miss the days when we'd shove the head of a raid boss on a spiked tree trunk



To be hornest, it has been a while since there's been a head to mount on a spike...

Azshara: not dead, Jaina: not dead, G'hun... not even sure where the head ends and the body begins, ? Kil'Jaden: turned to smoke, Gul'dan: more smoke...

Argus the titan actually had a head. No reason we couldn't mount that shit. But at the same time, I think the actual essence of Argus is still alive. After all, the other titans were still "alive" after being killed by Sargeras.

And G'Huun should have been put on a giant fishhook.

Farming instances for gold while not logged in on multiple clients



So I found there were a couple of ways to farm instances by making npc's do all the work.

  1. This works in Hellfire Ramparts: Aggro Mobs on the top tier of the instance and they run back through the instance pulling everything. You can do this on multiple characters on the SAME account and farm much faster than you would be able to on one.
  2.  In Shadow Labs you can send a pet/minion to kill 2nd boss Blackheart Inciter and the pet will return through the instance with a huge trash pack in tow. Again you can do this with multiple characters.




There's a video of this here:

Easy "The Last of Us" achievement / Highmaul Coliseum win

I saw this comment on wowhead a couple of days ago: The Last of Us - Achievement 

And i decided to give it a try as i never got my achievement and toy while it was current.

Steps:
  1. Queue for Highmaul Coliseum
  2. Accept queue after you waited for AGES
  3. As soon as you got into the instance, logout of wow
  4. Stay logged out until you think enough time have passed for the instance to have 'reset' - I was logged out for 1 hour and 15 mins, as i was cooking dinner/eating, i dont think you need to wait that long tho.
  5. When you login again you should still be inside the instance, but all alone in the instance, now go to the elevator, after about 30 seconds of waiting it should say something along the line of "match starts in 3 mins" - When the 3 mins wait have passed, the elevator should now take you to the top, after a bit of RP it should say something along the lines of "match starts in 2 mins" - when the match starts, you should instantly win the coliseum and get your achievement.

Screenshot of me winning: 




As of patch 8.0.1 Blizzard made the old Highmaul Coliseum available to level 110 chars, you might need Gladiator's Sanctum level 3 in your garrison to be able to queue up for the Coliseum, as the level 3 building spawns the NPC that you have to queue at. 

Im not entirely sure if you can just go to the npc in Nagrand and queue from there in case you dont have level 3 in your garrison, but that might work aswell, i already had level 3 tho so just used my garrison.

Transmogrification: Classic Alliance Mage

The closest cloaks that i could think for replacements are Maiden's Favor, Lifegiving Cloak, Crazy Cenarion Cloak. I'm not a fan of either of them. The current one is a bit off color, and has this metalic feel to it, but i do think it compliments my shoulders well enough to go for it. :) Not having a cloak is not an option either. It feels pretty bad as a gnome.

As for the belt ... It's something that is left over from MoP, when i first made this set. I kept it because it does a good job in breaking up the blue from the lower parts of the robe. The Primal Mooncloth Belt looks good with it but i'm not a fan of the 2D stuff and it leaves a lot of blue on the robe exposed which i don't like. The Fearless Gladiator's Silk Cord is also a cool replacement, but i don't like the placement of the belt and how it exposes where the tabard is cut off. The 7th Legion stuff also looks decent, but they are very high resolution compared to the rest of the set, and it leaves far too much blue exposed.





I find that the cape compliments the shoulders extremely well, with the golden/yellowy parts seemingly flowing out of it on the sides. It is a tiny bit off color and has a more metalic(?) shine to it, but i find it a much better option than any of the other blue capes. They are stronger blue color, but don't play off well with my other pieces at all. Not having a cape is not an option for me. The movement feels very odd without one as a gnome. It feels much heavier as there is more focus on the hips, rather than a cloak floating about. :) It might suit taller races more.

From Gaming Online to Gambling Online



For many people, the bridge between online gaming and online gambling is a short one. It makes sense when you think about it. People who love to play various types of video games online may also enjoy getting other types of entertainment online. I have met so many Star Wars game fans and MMO fans who are also fans of online casinos and slots.

In fact, some people even feel that online gambling can help you up your game skills in other online games, like MMORPGs. For example, to win in Blackjack, you need to learn to focus your attention on patterns and the math involved in the game. You need to train yourself to respond based on the odds, to make decisions on the fly, and to hone your skills in all of these areas.

Is it even safe to gamble online?

This is a common question that people ask when they are new to it. Honestly, as long as you are using a reputable site, it is safe. You need to ask the right questions before you sign up and start giving your personal information out just anywhere, so this is a good frame of mind to be in.

Here are some things to do to help you stay safe while gambling online:

  1. Look into the reputation of a particular site you are thinking of using it. Read their reviews and see what real people have to say about them.
  2. Look into the type of encryption software they use too, to make sure they have proper security measures in place to keep your account and data safe.
  3. Look into how they accept deposits and how they manage funds on the site. Some red flags are sites that only accept wire transfers or cash to build up your account funding.


There are also some advantages to playing slots and other casino games online. For example:

  • There are more games than you can find in a traditional casino.
  • You may not live close to a traditional casino.
  • Casinos may not be legal where you live.
  • You can do it any time and anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection.
  • You can play for free, take advantage of cool bonuses, and try many different games.
  • It’s automatic and more fast-paced than in person games and slots.

Canadian VipCasino.Ca is one place you can go online to check out casinos if you need a site that is friendly to Canadians. Not all casino sites can be accessed from all countries and areas, so this kind of information is important. This is a quality site with a lot of different games to choose from.


Some themes you can find here that you might like are Hitman, Game of Thrones. Hell Boy, Jurassic World, and your classics like Blackjack. There are sports games, too, and live dealer games. You will find a great rewards program, promotions to get you started, and you can even play on your mobile.

Battle for Azeroth TL;DR

I think “elf lady made me feel bad” was the start of most battles/wars on Azeroth in the last 10000 years.



For what it's worth, the casus belli given by Sylvanas to Saurfang is... actually pretty sympathetic.


The events of Before the Storm, notably The Gathering which you just pointed out. A "peaceful meeting" shot up by Sylvanas because Anduin brought a usurper who, in the moment, really did try something that was not agreed upon by Anduin or Sylvanas. Sylvanas' actions went too far for Anduin but she had the "legal leeway" to do it. Anduin explicitly says he can't even call her out on it.


The first events of A Good War or Elegy, notably the fact that Anduin has become far more pushing towards the Horde. Not aggressive per se, but pushing: the amount of spies in Orgrimmar makes it sound like the place is about to flood with them. This increasing tension with the advent of Azerite, among a couple of other reasons is what enables Sylvanas to convince Saurfang that whatever tenuous peace she and the boy-king has (even after "she humbled him;" AKA Saurfang probably not knowing what really happened at The Gathering but knowing it pissed a teenage king off), it's not going to be permanent. Other reasons included Genn's attack on Sylvanas in Legion (Stormheim), which was a notable reason because "What if the peace-loving boy-king can't keep his dog leashed?", and also the history of hatred between the Alliance and Horde: orc internment camps, prejudice against blood elves (notably WCIII), and Daelin Proudmoore's campaign against orc and troll alike are all good examples.


Cue the rest of A Good War, where Saurfang executes a plan to drive a wedge into the Alliance and divide them, which would enable the Horde to "carve out a peace with each individual nation." Holding Teldrassil and more importantly its inhabitants hostage was key to this plan, by the way.


Sylvanas throws it out the window and fucks it up by burning the World Tree, discarding a valuable bargaining chip (the innocent lives at stake) and all but ensuring an all-out war between the Horde and Alliance.

Step 4 is the most important bit. Sylvanas' reason for war as given to Saurfang was clearly not her reason for war, and we see that increasingly so as we progress through BfA. She was never out for peace. Heck, she acknowledges with Nathanos that she has longed for years to conquer Stormwind.

Peace isn't her objective. It never was. And it irritates me that Saurfang played into her hands and decided to start the War of the Thorns so willingly. Even more so, he ended up seeing her point when she used some bullshit logic at the end of A Good War to justify the genocide.

Which basically means that the Battle for Azeroth TL;DR above is bad writing. So the foundation of BfA is bad writing. That absolutely sucks, because it diminishes everything in it and what comes after it.

There are other reasons I'm unhappy with Battle for Azeroth's plot and storytelling as well, but by far the most egregious is how they've turned Sylvanas from a cold, cunning, and calculating agent into a brazen and stupid warmonger.

And what's worse is they may play the "4D Chess" card and we've played into Sylvanas' hands all along. In which case, congratulations Blizzard: your horrendous storytelling kept me less interested in the lore than I would have been if you properly hinted that Sylvanas isn't a complete moron. Because right now you haven't shown that. It's a 50/50 whether you've just driven her right off the rails, or whether you've just done a piss poor job showing that she isn't right off the rails. Neither is good.

Most Obscure Casino Games You Never Knew About



Casino games are great sources of entertainment. They are easy to learn and play, and you get to choose from a wide range. In addition to the fortunes and sizeable money can be earned while playing, you also get to make acquaintances with people from different walks of life.

While the more popular games like poker, slots, roulette and blackjack have great appeal; there are some obscure games that are equally fun. Moreover, all of them are available on BetAmo, brand new online casino.

Below are three obscure casino games you never knew about.


• Sic-Bo: This is the perfect game for players who enjoy the varied and complex betting rules of roulette. Sic-Bo provides you with a unique way of playing. In Sic-Bo, there is an extensive betting surface, similar to a roulette board. On this surface, the dealer shakes three dice in a cage with the players betting long or short odds on the outcome of the spins.

The game is very exciting and you can try out a number of playing systems or even invent your own.

• Pai-Gow Poker: This is a great choice for lovers of poker, as Pai-Gow Poker is a brilliant twist on the regular game. In this game played around a half-moon table, all players are dealt 7 cards. The dealer is also dealt 7 cards, after they all play against the dealer. This leaves everyone having to make two poker hands with the 7 cards.

The players collects on their stake if they beat both of the dealer's hands, and vise versa. This game allows players test their knowledge of poker, outsmarting the dealer by arranging their cards in a great way.

• Casino War: Casino War is developed based on classic card game War. It is one of the easiest casino games around, and also the most rewarding with the win rate over well over 50%. The game is quite straightforward, the dealer and player are dealt one card each. If the player's card is higher, the player wins; if the dealer's card is higher, the dealer wins.

War ensues in this game in the case of a tie. If the cards of both player and dealer has the same value, you have the choice of 'surrender' or going to 'war' with the dealer. Choosing to surrender means you forfeit the game and have only half of your wager returned to you. Going to war, you must place another bet equal to your first stake, for a chance to win on the starting wager.

Repeatable world quest in zuldazar



I stumbled into a interesting bug earlier. 

It's the north most champion of azeroth WQ in zuldazar. On server argent dawn, it's possible to complete the WQ over and over ( it's the one where you kill a percentage to complete).

There is one small minor annoying detail though: it might reset while doing it. 

But so far I've done it 6 times, and rewards 370 azerith gear + rep each time.

If you do it a few times and the WQ disappears , wait 5-10 minutes and you should be able to do it again.
