WOW Night Elf vocations and mounts

09/30/2013 / Comments Off

Darnassus
Atop the massive boughs of the second World Tree, Teldrassil, lies the wondrous city of Darnassus. The elegant bridges, beautiful groves, and leaf-covered pathways that dot the city’s landscape are testaments to the night elves’ reverence for nature. One of Darnassus’s most notable structures is the stunning Temple of the Moon, the center of worship for High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind and her Sisters of Elune.

Darnassus is home to night elves of all vocations, and the city has recently opened its doors to human refugees from Gilneas as well. Wow Power leveling Many of these embattled humans have contracted a strange curse that transforms them into feral wolf-beasts known as worgen. Although they’re usually reclusive, the night elves have allowed these outsiders into Darnassus because they know the perils of the Gilneans’ cursed state all too well: it was, in fact, a group of night elf druids that created Azeroth’s first worgen millennia ago. Despite the arrival of these new residents, Darnassus remains a symbol of the night elves’ rich culture and glorious history.

Nightsaber
Nightsabers are considered to be among Kalimdor’s most vicious creatures. In ancient times, none of the continent’s denizens was safe from these agile beasts’ swift and ruthless attacks. The night elves saw great potential in the ferocious nightsabers, domesticating the species’ finest pedigrees to act as battle . In particular, the highly trained Sentinels used them to great effect while patrolling the borders of night elven lands. To this day, nightsabers remain an invaluable part of the night elves’ culture as companions, hunters, and mounts.

World of Warcraft Night Elf The Legion’s emergence

09/29/2013 / Comments Off

The Legion’s emergence, however, had forever changed night elven society. The night elves had resolved to shun the practice of arcane magic because its reckless use had attracted the Legion to Azeroth. They cultivated a peaceful, naturalistic existence along the slopes of Mount Hyjal under the leadership of Tyrande Whisperwind. For many long years, Tyrande oversaw night elven governance, ever vigilant for signs of further demonic incursions. Much of this time was spent apart from her love, Malfurion Stormrage, who, alongside his fellow druids, upheld the balance of nature from within the Emerald Dream.

The night elves’ tranquil existence was shattered again when the Burning Legion launched a new invasion of Azeroth. Wow Power leveling At the height of this conflict—known as the Third War—the Legion and its terrifying undead Scourge assaulted the night elves’ lands. After awakening Malfurion and his druids from their slumber in the Dream, Tyrande gathered the other night elves, and they fought alongside the Horde and the Alliance to defeat the demon lord Archimonde and his minions at the summit of Mount Hyjal.

Although victorious, the night elves suffered greatly from the battle. Their beloved World Tree Nordrassil, created and blessed by the Dragon Aspects Alexstrasza, Ysera, and Nozdormu to grant the night elves immortality, had given off a massive blast of energy to slay Archimonde. To facilitate this colossal explosion, the night elves had chosen to forever sacrifice their protection from aging, disease, and frailty.

WOW magical options

09/28/2013 / Comments Off

Whichever spec you choose has a major impact on your playstyle — perhaps more than any other class due to mage’s heavy reliance on their spellbook. Arcane mages will be casting Arcane Blast and Arcane Missiles; fire mages will be using Pyroblast and Fireball; and frost mages will be using Frostbolt and their Water Elemental. Each of these specs has their benefits and all can be used by a leveling mage — though anyone with a fondness for kiting will particularly appreciate frost’s abilities to freeze and slow enemies. But in short: pick a specialization that seems interesting to you and go for it.

Most classes we’ve talked about can fill several different roles in combat, with talent specializations focused on different roles. Wow Power leveling Mages, who can only fill the role of DPS, have three talent specializations that tweak the way they dish out hurt on their targets. Here are your specialization options, as described by Blizzard:

Arcane: Manipulate the arcane, destroying enemies with overwhelming power.
Fire: Ignite enemies with balls of fire and combustive flames.
Frost: Freezes enemies in their tracks and shatters them with Frost magic.

WOW introduces Flex Raid

09/27/2013 / Comments Off

The new Flexible Raid feature takes specific group sizes (anywhere from 10-25 players) into account and adjusts quest difficulty accordingly. Flexible raid difficulty will range between raid finder and normal difficulty, with no item level or role requirements. For example, if you have a group of 11, there’s no need to leave an odd man out.

The full patch notes are available here and you can also check out the Siege of Orgrimmar trailer below, so you can see for yourself just how dire the situation in Azeroth has become.

Horde warchief Garrosh Hellscream is in the midst of a rampage, unimaginable by both hero and Horde alike. Wow Power leveling‘s new 5.4 patch, the Siege of Orgrimmar, follows Hellscream’s dangerous quest for power, while also introducing a challenging new area and new Flexible Raiding, to help increase accessibility.

More traditional groups may be more interested in the new Siege of Orgrimmar raid, which will contain four wings and 14 bosses, consisting of Hellscream’s new Horde. The raid is meant to for max-level players and will conclude with groups taking the fight directly to Garrosh Hellscream, himself, over the Ragefire Chasm.

WOW Naked Gnomes story

09/26/2013 / Comments Off

This is where my story takes an ending though, it was late and I decided to log off for the night, so i do not know what went on the rest of the evening but as for me i had alot of fun watching this event take place.
I know there have been similar stories taken place but this is my story and im happy to have been a part of it..

Was in Dalaran when i saw in trade how people were saying that we had suddenly been infested with gnomes, and alot of them.
And being curious about it I of course went to the city in question, Stormwind.
And what do i see? A whole lot of gnomes and theyre all naked running around outside the auction house and some are inside dancing with people of course i had to take some pictures of this.

It turned out that the Sha’tar server had gone down and they all decided to come visit ours for some fun. Wow Power leveling They had run all the way from Coldridge Valley to Stormwind and there it was decided they were all gonna go raid Hogger in Elwynn forest.
Running towards the place somewhere they all changed their minds and decided to crash Dalaran!

Of course some friendly lvl 80 mages stepped up to the challange of porting those hundreds of gnomes to Dalaran, to simplify things the gnomes formed a line and stood there in queue waiting for their turn to use the portal.
Thankfully they could go in groups of 4 or it all would have probably taken alot longer then it did.

One of the mages actually manage to run out of reagents where to a friend of his went to get some more.
So after about 30 mins or so of portalling most of the gnomes was now found in Dalaran.
At this point i decided to hearth back myself to have a look and well they didnt manage to crash our server but Dalaran surely was over run with naked gnomes.

WOW Brewfest Ram Racing

09/25/2013 / Comments Off

Ram Racing is a key part of Brewfest. You’ll need to master it to get the most tokens out of each day and it’s pretty hard to get the hang of at first.

Now This is Ram Racing… Almost, There and Back Again, and other ram racing fun!

Now This is Ram Racing is the first quest you get for ram racing and it’s pretty easy. You just need to keep your ram at a certain speed for 8 seconds. You’ll get some reigns, be sure to bind them to an easy key to press. Now let’s see how rams work.

Rams have 4 speeds. Walking, Trot, Canter, Gallop, and the dreaded Exhausted. Rams can gain or lose fatigue based on how fast and hard you’re working them. Wow Gold Walking and Trot heals your fatigue (-4/-2 points per second respectively) while Canter and Gallop add fatigue (+1/+5 points per second respectively). Exhausted happens if you hit 100 fatigue points and lasts 15 seconds. It puts you at 14% of your base run speed. Ouch!

Apples will heal all of your fatigue, but they’re only on the beer run route. Otherwise you’ll have to master control of your ram. The Rental Ram only lasts 4 minutes so use the first quest to get the hang of things. Using the reigns will make the ram go faster. The faster/harder you click it the faster you’ll go. For beer runs (where there are apples) you’ll want to maintain a gallop while barking runs you’ll want to master the art of staying at canter.

Once that quest is done you’ll be given “There and Back Again” which involves making a run to broken down beer wagon and back. There are plenty of apples on your path and in the 4 minutes you have you should be able to easily get three of them back to complete the quest. However, use this time to focus on the path. Ram into the apples (or pass over them, depending on your lag, I almost aim for em then strafe aside) as you move and get the hang of the course. This is VERY important. You don’t want to hit every apple barrel, that’ll slow you down, but you don’t want to hit fatigued either.

Once that quest is done, each day you can help the quest giver out by doing beer runs. Each successful run gives you 2 tokens and another 30 seconds on your ram. This means that you can extend it to about 8-9 minutes and 20 tokens if you’re good at doing it. The first few times you might not get as many, but remember, if you’re going for achievements you’ll want to focus on getting as many as possible. I just got 32 from a run, so that’d be 448 over the events course of time.

There is also a 15 minute limit on the amount of runs you can do, but you’ll probably lose the buff way before then.

WOW boosts seniors’ brainpower study

09/24/2013 / Comments Off

Research conducted at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine in 2010 found that “exergames” (which use some type of exercise during game play) improved the mood and mental health of seniors.

A 2008 study by the University of Illinois found that adults aged 60 to70 had improved cognitive functions after played strategic video games.

Video games are increasingly becoming a part of some seniors’ lifestyles, with Nintendo’s Wii becoming a surprise hit among older adults since its release in 2006.

Meanwhile, middle-aged adults are sticking with Pac-Man as they grow older. According to the Entertainment Software Association, 29 per cent of computer and video game players are over 50.

However, it’s hard to point towards many mainstream games that are not aimed at teenagers or young adults. The Wii games popular among seniors, particularly Wii Sports or Wii Fit, were actually aimed at the other demographic end.

Technology writer Peter Nowak says that as lifelong gamers age — particularly those who started playing as children in the late 70s or early 80s — the video game industry will start releasing more products for older adults.

“The Wii really opened up the potential to cater to older generations,” Nowak, the author of “Sex, Bombs and Burgers,” said in an interview. “(However) I think you would be hard pressed to convince today’s seniors to play video games, but as the current generations get older that’s going to be less of a problem.

“That means that there’s a much bigger market for the video game industry (in the future).”

Allaire thinks the video game industry has a largely untapped audience in seniors right now.

“We thought older adults, they wouldn’t be interested in video games, but we found the opposite. Only one person dropped out (of our study). Everyone was really excited to play the game,” he said. “It really energized them.”

The study has been published online in the journal Computers in Human Behavior.

“Hey Grandma, can you grab your battleaxe and help me save a dwarven princess from the evil Dark Iron Clan” may not sound like part of a healthy senior’s lifestyle, but a new study suggests otherwise.

Playing the online role-playing fantasy game “World of Warcraft” boosted the cognitive function of older adults who participated in the North Carolina State University study.

“People who played ‘World of Warcraft’ versus those who did not play experienced an increase in cognitive ability, particularly older adults who performed very poorly in our first testing session,” the study’s co-author, Dr. Jason Allaire, said in a telephone interview.

In the study, Allaire and his co-authors, Dr. Anne McLaughlin and PhD student Laura Whitlock, first tested the cognitive abilities of adults aged 60 to 77 to set a baseline. The experimental group played “WoW” for about 14 hours on their home computers, while the control group didn’t play at all.

Allaire said the group that played the game showed “statistically significant” improvement in their cognitive abilities.

The researchers, as part of NC State’s Gains Through Gaming laboratory, chose “World of Warcraft” because its task-based game play is scientifically found to be cognitively complex. For those uninitiated in the mythical land of Azeroth, players in “WoW” create their characters, whether they be human warriors or druid warlocks, and proceed on quests of their choosing, either alone or with other “WoW” players.

As a fan of the game, Allaire said he had seen first-hand how the game affected seniors.

“I had my grandma play and after she played she commented on how tired she was,” Allaire said.

The “WoW” study is hardly the first to suggest that gaming has a myriad of positive qualities for older adults and seniors.

WOW Hunters resource system

09/23/2013 / Comments Off

WOW Hunters resource system
Hunters have a unique resource system: instead of using mana, rage, or energy, their abilities require focus to use. It’s similar to the energy resource that rogues, monks, and cat druids use, but it regenerates a bit differently. Hunters start with 100 focus and regain it over time or by using abilities.

Hunters have a wide selection of races — any race save for gnome can select the class, meaning a potential hunter has the choice of dwarf, human, night elf, draenai, worgen, orc, tauren, troll, undead, blood elf, goblin, or pandaren. Wow Gold They wear leather armor to start, but can equip mail armor at level 40, which adds to their survivability. They can also wield a variety of weapons — bows, crossbows, fist weapons, guns, one-handed axes, one-handed swords, polearms, staves, two-handed axes, and two-handed swords — but most of their skills require you to use ranged weapons, so if you have dreams of melee combat, this is not the class for you.

Hunters do one thing and they do it very well: dish out huge quantities of ranged damage. Though hunters have three talent trees, just like any other class, each one focuses on doing DPS, though in slightly different ways: beast mastery improves a hunter’s pet power, marksmanship focuses on ability with bows and guns, and survival hunters are more skilled with explosives, poisons, and traps.

WOW Druids Guides

09/22/2013 / Comments Off

WOW Druids Guides
Druids wear leather armor and can wield staves, one-handed maces, two-handed maces, daggers, fist weapons, and polearms — but a druid’s particular abilities lend towards attacking targets using spells or (shapeshifted) claws, so except for those low levels where you might hit things when you run out of mana, your weapon will probably stay holstered for most of your play time. For race choice, though, druids have the most restrictive options in the game: only night elves, worsen, tauren, and trolls can become druids.

Druids aren’t the only class that can fill multiple game roles, but they are are perhaps the most hybrid of the hybrids. In fact, druids are so flexible that they have four talent specializations compared to the usual three: balance (magic ranged DPS), feral (melee DPS in cat form), guardian (tanking in bear form), and restoration (healer). So whatever you want to do in World of Warcraft, there’s no question: a druid can do it. Or, at least, a druid can do it with the right talent specialization and gear.

Druids harness the powers of nature to help their friends or harm their foes. They can wield magic to harm like a mage or heal like a priest and can shapeshift into animal forms to dive into melee fighting. Like the monk and paladin, druids are a hybrid class that can fill any role in the game they wish: if you play a druid, you have the flexibility to do whatever you please. But are you up to the task of wielding the raw elemental power of nature? We’ll take a look at just what druids can do and try to decide if it’s the right class for you.

The daily grind: MMO unexpected you love it?

09/21/2013 / Comments Off

You know, I really like Final Fantasy XIV. I especially like crafting, harvesting and greater IP loose sprinkled throughout Eorzea. Of course, who does not like that level until the victory of the music?

I may be preaching the choir here, because the game is so popular, in fact, had to stop selling square, for a time, but I do not know. Here to supply buy FFXIV Gil I guess how much I dig it, I was surprised, so I am very pleased, in fact, I’m going to enjoy these two games pretty way.

How about you do a large audience? Have you ever accidentally do a game? Which one?
