No Legion Alpha either huh? Here’s what I’m doing to keep busy in WoW


Keep busy in WoW! It’s easier than you think. We’ve reached that stage of the expansion, where I’m grateful that I have a bit more time to devote to all those things I missed out, by only beginning to play (and very casually at that) in mid to late Cataclysm. …


Reins of the Red Drake

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 …


Reins of the Spectral Steed

reins of the spectral steed

It’s mine! It’s finally mine! The Reins of the Spectral Steed is MINE! (hears a chorus of guildies quoting Finding Nemo at me MINE! MINE MINE! Like the socially inept echolalia suffering eejits that we all are). Yes, I can cross this one off my list of things to do …


Waiting for WoD: More stuff to do

waiting for wod

I recently wrote a post about things you can do to keep yourself busy while you’re waiting for Warlords of Draenor. Waiting for WoD: What to do Gaining Reputation with the Sha’Tari Skyguard, The Kurenai and the Netherwing all of which will grant you access to some pretty cool mounts. I …

What’s the fastest way to gain Shatari Skyguard Reputation ? Who are the Sha’tari Skyguard you ask? They’re a faction from The Burning Crusade expansion of World of Warcraft.  I had no idea they even existed since I leveled mostly through dungeons for 60-70, and it was only upon seeing …

Faction Change in World of Warcraft


A faction change in World of Warcraft is when a character switches allegiance from Alliance to Horde, or the opposite. It involves a bit more than just  a race change, and of course Blizzard also offer you a name change included for the price. I have chronicled my adventures on the …


Where do you farm rep with the Black Prince ?

farm rep with the black prince

So, where do YOU farm rep with the Black Prince? I recently decided to wake up a couple of weeks (cough)MONTHS(cough) late and get going with the legendary quest line and found myself needing to be at Revered Status with Wrathion. If you find yourself saying, “Um, Black Prince? Wrathion?” …


Reins of the Blue Shado-Pan Riding Tiger


The Blue Shado-Pan Riding Tiger is one of my favourite non-flight mounts. Stockier and more armoured than their frost sabre predecessors, they are great for when you need to mount up, but can’t necessarily fly. Reins of the Blue Shado-Pan Riding Tiger I consider this mount fairly easy to obtain, …
