Happy Expansion!



Have a great day!  😄

Hello everyone!

It's almost time to start the new expansion pack.  I can't wait to see how the story unfolds. I only wish there were another month of summer - school starts in a few weeks and like my students I am not ready yet.  I wonder how I can turn playing WoW into a science lesson...

This week's Blast from the Past is again from episode 346.  Enjoy!

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

PSA: If you are running the LookingForGroup (LFG) addon I‘d advise to delete it ASAP. The guy made some alarming comments, I wouldn’t recommend running code from someone with such temper on your machine. Next thing you know, you’re /yelling threats in SW.

Addon(s) of the week: SilverDragon
SilverDragon tracks rares. It will try everything possible to notice them and tell you about them.

How does it search?

Tooltips

Some rares are part of an achievement. When you mouse over a rare mob, SilverDragon will add to the tooltip whether you've already killed it, so you know whether you need to rush for it.

Broker

SilverDragon includes a Broker plugin. It'll attach itself to your minimap, or a Broker container you have installed, and show you a list of the mobs it knows about in the current zone.

Custom mobs

In SilverDragon's options you'll find a "Mobs" section. In the "Always" section, you can add any mob you want to be scanned for. All you need to know is the mob id.

So, let's say you wanted to keep an eye out for Lil Timmy in Stormwind, to buy the kitten he sells. You would...

  1. Go to his wowhead page.

  2. Grab his id from the URL. It's 8666.

  3. Enter 8666 into the "add" field, and click "okay".

  4. Play with your new kitten.

 

The “add” field can be found in: Interface ----> SilverDragon ----> Mobs … in that tabs main window “Custom” and there it’s the top field.

Yes, this example dates me.

 

Vignettes

Those little skull icons you see on the minimap. If one of them is a rare SilverDragon knows about, it'll yell at you.

Targets

If you mouse over or target a rare mob, SilverDragon will notice it.

Nameplates

If you have enemy nameplates turned on, SilverDragon will keep an eye on them to look for the names of known rares.

Macro

SilverDragon can also create a macro to target any rares that are known in the current zone. You can stick this on your actionbars as a button to spam while chasing after a rare, or bind it to a key. This is sort of a last resort.

How will I know when a rare is seen?

Frame

When a rare appears, SilverDragon will pop up a frame that you can click on to target it.
Warning: If you're in combat, secure action restrictions mean that it won't show up until combat finishes.

Hello everyone!

So, about the pre-patch quests.  There was a thing. A thing happened.  I don't know how I feel about said thing.  I am conflicted. The storyline in Battle for Azeroth should be amazing!

Anyway, here are some clips from episode 346.  Enjoy!
