Half way there…

Project: Skill-revamp-musical chairs is moving ahead slowly. I re-did Tikah as a Skinner/Herbalist and sent her all around Teldrassil gathering herb for Obli and skilling up her skinning. That went fairly well but I was annoyed at killing stuff and not getting any experience (and my new pet needs to get experience points to get some training points) so I…

Easier the second time

My new druid, Obliette, is my second Night Elf. I was worried that I’d be bored working all the same quests again. Instead I’m finding that I have an annoyingly short memory. I’ve forgotten a lot of the details of the quests.. but luckily I keep having the vague feeling I’ve done this before 😛 so I am not totally…

If only there were a mod…

… to color plants as green/blue dots on the mini-map. So annoying to keep mistaking them for quest turn ins. … to sort auction house to find the best weapon/armor usable by me at the best price. … to show an action bar in a location I specify that is only visable if I’m in combat. … to show my…

The problem with a flower-picking hunter

Tikah, my hunter, is currently my Herbalist/Alchemist. It made sense to me at the time that I started it.. but in play I’ve found this combination has issues. A herbalist gathers flowers. The flowers live in bag slots. Bag slots that could be used for other inventory. This limits the player’s inventory. If you get a herbalist bag then it…

Addon: PriceEach

[This information is Deprecated. With the 3.0.2 patch the information below is no longer true. Please check more recent entries for more correct information.] I’m just grooving on the addons. Saw this: PriceEach 2.0 So lets say your searching the AH for items and find 8 stacks in varying quantities per stack from 1 to 20. How would you quickly…

Alarm Clock

[This information is Deprecated. With the 3.0.2 patch the information below is no longer true. Please check more recent entries for more correct information.] I’m getting tired of that “Oh, crap! It’s 1:30 AM!” moments. Decided I needed an alarm clock. Found one that’s integrated into the Titan bar. TitanAlarmClockWrangler Settings: When it goes off it puts red text at…

Addon: EquipCompare + CharactersViewer

[This information is Deprecated. With the 3.0.2 patch the information below is no longer true. Please check more recent entries for more correct information.] EquipCompare is pretty darn cool on its own.. but combined with CharactersViewer it’s da-bomb. This is an easy way to figure out if the thing you just got from a drop would benefit your alt. Very…

Blood Elf {W}HORDE!

On Ventrillo, fiancee mentioned to guildies that we (he and I) were starting some new Blood Elves. We’re planning to play them only one night a week.. and only with the group. One guildie asked if he could join.. then another and another. We ended up with Illyah (my toon) the Paladine, Freki (Fiancee’s toon) a Warlock, Yaoikun a Rogue,…

Rarh!

I acquired Burning Crusade from Costco. I guess it is true that you can find anything there if you look hard enough. I’m glad that it’s been a while since BC’s initial release. The newbie areas are fairly uncongested and I’m not having any huge problems fulfilling the quest requirements. Over the last two days I played my new Dreanei…
