WoW: Where to level a Hunter Pet to level 80 (Post 4.0.1 Patch)

In my previous article on the subject I described what I believe is one of the best spots to level a hunter pet in the game World of Warcraft. With patch 4.0.1 I decided to add a number of pets so was once again faced with the daunting task of leveling them up to my character's level. End result: 15-20 minutes per pet level! Booyah! Where to go: as in my previous article, head to Voltarus in Zul'Drak. Fly up inside and find Overlord Drakuru standing there with his two gargoyle-like guards. They are all un-targetable and will ignore you. Immediately to the left and right of the guards though…

World of Warcraft: Soloing for Ashen Verdict Rep In Icecrown Citadel

I don't know about other servers but the few people able to make the Shatter Rounds and Iceblade Arrows on my server have been ticking me off by charging an arm and a leg for them. As a hunter these items make a major difference. But as a hunter I have been annoyed spending most of the gold I make in game from the few dailies I have time to complete just to keep supplied with enough arrows. To make a stack of 1000 arrows one needs to gather two crystalized shadows. These are essentially free items (a half hour of farming in WG and I gathered 90). The real…

World of Warcraft plugin update: BGDefender

EDIT Oct 2010 - Updated version here. I by no means wrote this plugin, but it is one I use a lot when I play World of Warcraft. Often I recommend people go get it, but alas the author no longer plays WoW, so he can no longer keep it up to date. As such, I added minimal support for Strand of the Ancients and Isle of Conquest. I bet the German translation for the zone names is wrong, so if this is important to you, edit the section in the lua file to the correct zone information. I by no means intend to support this. It is for my…

Power leveling a pet from 75 to 80 in 2 hours or less

[EDIT Oct 15, 2010] I updated this with a new article here. The previous article is still here for background. In playing a hunter in WOW I have upon many occasions chanced upon a new pet with some ability or feature I wanted to add to my repertoire. The current design of the game allows for low level pets to auto level up to 5 levels below your current level. For a level 80 hunter, that means upon taming, your pet auto-levels up to 75. Sounds really nice, considering before when you tamed that level 30 pet, it stayed at level 30 and you had to train it up for…

How I made 100’s of thousands of gold in WoW

Over the past few years of playing World of Warcraft, myself and a friend of mine stumbled upon a sure-fire method to acquire virtual gold in the game. Over time we have each likely made tens if not hundreds of thousands of gold. Although there is nothing mysterious about the process, it is amazing how many people have dismissed it as a possible revenue source. Even podcasts such as The WowInsider Show have mentioned the basic premise and then dismissed it out of hand. Why? Because everyone who has tried it did it wrong, except for those who did it right but kept quiet about it, and here's why.... (more…)
