Cleared out all my Retail mail boxes for 15 days, so i wouldn’t loose any mail when i’m over in WoWClassic.
Progress so far: Forsaken Warlock Tailor / Skinner lvl 16; Forsaken Rogue Engineer / Miner lvl 14; Troll Shaman LW / Skinner lvl 12 and the Hunter Enchanter / ??? (maybe Skinner or Herbalist  lvl 2

Class quests:
Rogue (Deathstalkers from Undercity) Lockpicking needed to start Poison brewing.
Warlock minion quest chains among other things.
Shaman totem attunement with the elements quests.
Hunter pet minigame teaching one pet one ability by learning it from the taming of another pet and so forth. Rare pets to tame, looking forward to it.

Tailoring for making bags, almost at woolen bags.
LW to make ammo pouches 
Engineer to make ammo but i haven’t found a NPC to exchange low level bullets for arrows


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


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

Questie is a great quest helper to mark locations in the world.


Necrosis Classic is the WoWClassic version of the great Warlock addon 

Almost all the functions work atm.
Soulshard overload
Soulshards bag: Delete when bag is full
Buff menu
Curse menu
Demon menu
Fear Icon shows when unit is unfearable
Soulshard count
