Horde horse and Alliance wolf.

New Desirée, after 8 long months to finish the last 2 zones, here is my zandalari priest.

Grand Nagus

Retail WoW:
Litterally NO game time!

Classic WoW:

Forsaken Warlock: Level 20; did the class quest to get the Succubus and the first soul pouch.

Forsaken Rogue: Level 18; did the first part of the Lock Picking quest chain and skilled the profession to 80. The second part, going to Ambermill in Silverpine Forrest is still to high to do.

Troll Hunter: Level 13; learned to tame a pet and the abilities that come with it. The first pet, a boar, is now best friend with her. Loyalty levels are a thing.

Troll Shaman: Level 12; didn’t get much gameplay this week, since i would like her to get better gear and i feel that when the other toons get better gear for her, she’s gonna continue her adventures.

Orc Warrior: Level 7; just started to skill Blacksmithing to support the other toons with, among other things, weapon buff items, grinding stones and weight stones.

Forsaken Mage: Level 6; started skilling Enchanting by disenchanting all the useless greens.

Tauren Druid: Level 1; the only toon not played yet, no rush though. Herbalism and Alchemy will be his traits.

Addon.png
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.

Addon of the week: What’s Training for WoWClassic.
What's Training? is an addon for World of Warcraft Classic that adds a list of available trainer spells to the spell book, so you can easily know when to seek a class trainer out. Spells you already know are moved to the bottom. Mousing over a spell will show you its tooltip, with the cost to train attached to the bottom. Mousing over a category header will show you the total cost of training of spells in that section.

If you have Class Trainer Plus installed, What's Training will show Ignored spells at the bottom.

Class Trainer Plus is an addon for World of Warcraft Classic that upgrades the Class Trainer interface, adding the abiliy to ignore, search, and train all.
You can ignore any spell offered by your class or pet trainer by right-clicking and checking the "Ignore" option. You can then hide them from view like the other available filters. Ignoring does not work at profession trainers. 
Easily find spells to ignore by using the search box. Searching also works at profession trainers.
When the Shift key is held, the Train button will allow all available, non-ignored spells to be trained at one time.

Hello everyone!

Here are my audios for the week.  I went way way back for our Blast from the Past, bringing you a sample from episode 8!  It seemed appropriate with Classic WoW now available. Enjoy!

Hi Aprillian, Constraxx & Grand Nagus,

Hope you've all had a great week.  I've been enjoying wow classic, and have rolled an undead priest named rarebitt who is in the Clan of Darkness guild on the pagle server, and another priest on the oceanic pvp server Arugal with my sons.

The queue times for the oceanic server on the weekend were a bit bad, 3.5 hrs to get into the server on Saturday night, but apart from that, the queues have been pretty good. I'm really enjoying just taking my time on these two characters and doing as many quests and skilling up professions as possible.  I also forgot how relaxing fishing in Wow was ! 

Absolutely loving the game so far, and thanks to you guys for re-igniting my passion for classic Wow.  

Bye for now

Rarebitt
