Reins of the Red Drake

If you’re wanting to add a nice mount to your collection with a minimum of fuss and effort, go and get yourself the Reins of the Red Drake. It counts towards the meta achievement, coming in Warlords of Draenor, to obtain the Emerald Drake (by having a selection of the other drakes). You may have picked up this mount if you played during Wrath of the Lich King, but if, like me, this content predates your play date start, don’t fret, it’s ridiculously easy. Go to Dalaran, on a character that has Justice Points to burn (do this quickly...

NPC Personalities at the Garrison

Blizzard have really gone to great lengths to humanise (apologies to non-humans) the NPC personalities at the Garrison, by giving them each quite unique characteristics. There is a real flavour and variety of personalities present in the garrison. A couple of days ago, I had a funny moment where I clicked an NPC that was walking past me, who immediately respectfully said, ‘Good to see you Commander’ – and I had a brief moment where I wanted look behind myself and then realised they were talking to me.  I tweeted about it… Just clicked a garrison NPC on beta...

Disenchanting without the Enchanting Profession

This morning I was on Warlords of Draenor Beta, after downloading the latest build, and I must say – things are a lot crisper and less buggy than they were two builds ago. The garrison buildings are all functioning as intended, and this morning I had a go at disenchanting some gear my test hunter no longer needed. See this video below: (also – how awesome is the music in the garrison? Epic!) Don’t you just love the visuals and sound effects on that? I thought it was really well done on Blizzard’s part. The bag sorting function is...

Reins of Galakras

The Reins of Galakras is a mount that you earn for completing the achievement Glory of the Orgrimmar Raider.  This achievement can be earned at flex, normal or heroic level. (After 6.0, I guess it would be normal, heroic and mythic, as flex is being removed as a ‘level’). Believe it or not, this is my first ‘proto-drake’… (the style of drake that appears to stand using their wings for support, and then rather amusingly walk/run with their wings pulled up, a bit like a lady would have done in the 1800’s lifting her skirt to avoid dragging it...

Changing Realms

I have always been an advocate of having a legion of alts on a server, with all the professions you need, so that in the interests of gold making and self-sufficiency you need never rely on the Auction House’s volatile prices to buy the resources you need. So what happens when you get the opportunity to raid with a team, on another server, and you really can’t pass up the chance? You have a few choices here: Level up another legion of support alts on your destination realm – but with 8 weeks till the launch of Warlords of Draenor...

The Expansion After Warlords of Draenor

This turned up on Beta some time ago, and yet everytime I look at it, it hasn’t lost the ability to make me nerdsquee with excitement! But do you know what I see when I look at this? I see a continent. Surrounded by oceans. Now, one could argue that it is simply a planet with a Pangea type continent and that that is all that this new planet has to offer… But then, let’s take a closer look at an the zoomed in version of the map of Draenor.   Let’s take a look at how Draenor will...

How many Legendary Cloaks are Enough?

How many legendary cloaks do you think, are enough? I started the quest line on most of my legion of alts (on my main-Alliance server). Today I finished the quest line for the third legendary cloak. All my alts that don’t have it – are in various stages: Mistweaver Monk: Complete Resto Shaman: Complete Survival Hunter: Complete ___ Resto Druid: At the Thunder Forge Holy Paladin: Collecting Secrets of the Empire Disc Priest: Grinding Valor Destro Lock: Sigils of Wisdom, Sigils of Power Arcane Mage: Sigils of Wisdom, Sigils of Power At this stage, where are we? About 10...
