How to kill annoying Goldspammers!

In tipps by Myrddin0 Comments

Izriul from Laughing Skull made an interesting post on the official forum, how to kill Gold Sellers with the Shaman Fire Nova Totems (see the original post here). The basic idea is, that totems become neutral for a splitsecond, once their owner logs off just before they disappear. If you time the Fire Nova Explosion for the brief periods where the totem will be neutral it will deal damage to allied players. Testing it I found out that it works best for me to type /camp, but not to hit enter until yata (yet another totem addon) shows 1.6 seconds …

Season 4 Arena Sets revealed.

In news by Myrddin0 Comments

Blizzard turned on the Arena Season 4 vendors on the Test Realms. World of Raids has a list of all Sets here. The Enhancement Shaman Set is just like T6 a failure in itemization stats. We have again useless 20 mp/5 on our set, the same mistake Blizzard did on T6. I have been starting to wonder if the devs, after all our "adjustments", still know what is good for our class and what is not. But with a 2200 rating requirement for the shoulders it is out of reach of most Enhancement Shamans anyhow. Anyway here it is: New …

While this might be nice for players pre-Hyjal, blacksmithing is still not an option for Rogues/Shamans who are beyond Tempest Keep. It is quite ironic that most professions got some high end crafter only items with the introduction of Sunwell Plateau with the exception of Weaponsmiths. Blacksmithing The most exciting innovation in blacksmithing will be the ability for blacksmith players to make epic quality items that only they can wield. …

How to earn Gold in World of Warcraft!

In tipps by Myrddin0 Comments

Generally speaking there are plenty of ways to earn cash, you just have to find the one that fits you best. I will try to show you a couple of ways that worked for me and some advice that I learnt the hard way. Grinding: The most obvoius way is all about killing mobs and hope for good drops. Personally I prefer to grind mobs that serve multiple purposes – like giving reputation, dropping special items in addition to normal drops, etc. For example the mobs on the Blades Edge Plateau's Etherum Prison Keys (if you completed the quest), Netherweave …
