Episode 71 - Authenticator FTW
What We've Been Doing
Triple Boxing in Outland - Farming Voidwalkers on Aprillian
Making loads of money on Horde Pets with my Ally Bank Alt
Sold another Primal mooncloth bag/need to make Shadow cloth Need to get to netherstorm
Did Broken Alliance for Iwari, level 47 Warlock, want to get her to 50, she's my engineer. Brought in Rilfire, level 61 Hunter/Skinner, and it was a piece of cake.
Friday, got the Blizzard Authenticator, easy to use. Started a 4th account I can summon! Started a couple of level 1's but I want to level them.
Bought Primal life on ah, noticed motes of life cheap on ah
Spent Saturday at work farming netherweave cloth in HFP with Aprillian. then at home had Rilfire and Aprillian doing the Stonebreaker quests. Rilfire is now behind Aprillian.
Can't get the hang of twobox
Took Aprillian back to tb to do marrowgrain and runecloth, still halfway to exalted
Sunday, did Shambling
Monday, back in Hellfire with Aprillian, Rilfire and Auntrillian fire bombing quest, failed miserable because of the time restriction
Monday night spent tons
Asheal and Ashield have been making their way through all the Shadowmoon Valley quests. Completed all but two
Gorefiend's Armor, which requires a group that is on the same quest (as it comes with an item that is required to see the mob - Vhel'kur).
Final step of "The Cipher of Damnation"
Spent 1.5hrs in Coilskar Cistern for one quest item for "The Cipher of Damnation". The quest requires an item from a chest that is a low drop rate. Worse, the chests are locked and requires a key which is also a random drop. And the key is one-use only.
Has been great for Scryer Rep. 3000 into Honoured, and haven't done any signet or arcane tome hand-ins.
Managed to solo "The Path of Conquest" group chain. The last part involved a timed quest to kill elite giants.
Ashayo did some more Arena PvP. Actually have enough points to buy a couple of items. Actually only won a couple of "real" fights. Came up against a 5-box shaman team (ouch), and a team called "loseforpoints" that just quit as soon as battle started.
Ashield got a world drop for [Ragesteel Shoulders] which was enough to prompt mass farming of ore to get Blacksmithing up to 375
Asheal had enough shadow cloth to make all of the Frozen Shadoweave set - more farming this time for primals, and levelled Tailoring to 375
Levelling one mage with Asheal. Much more fun!
When ungrouped, get majority of XP on the mage even if priest helps by healing.
Levelling Shaman - still getting scaled XP depending on amount of damage done when ungrouped.
Hey again Aprillian and Ashayo, Its Triaa again with a very long email. Well after the emails following mine suggested a majority of the addons I had planned to talk about I had to go digging through my 300+ addons, yes I spend way to much time looking on addon sites, to find one that I thought would be a great addition to any character. The Addon I decided on is Bongos 3 and Xperl Unit Frames. Bongos is an addon which removes the blizzard action bars and allows you to place action bars in any size or area of your screen which you desire, as well as simply then mousing over the bar and pressing the key(s) you would like to bind that action bar slot to if you use the keyboard to play. Although it may take two hours to configure, which seams like a long time the fact that you will more than likely enjoy the look of it so much that you never touch it again.(unless you are me, I am never satisfied with my UI and need to constantly change things) And Ashayo it too allows you to move and change the minimap :). Along with bongos I use a unit frames addon called Xperl Unit Frames. This addon takes the normal bars showing your health and mana and puts them in a sleeker, movable square format which makes your view a lot less crowded, the best part is, it allows you to have a moving 3D image of your character instead of a picture. Both of these addons are full of options that you can change. I will link to some of the pictures of my UI so that you can see examples. These can both be found on wowui.worldofwar.net the website I recommend for addons when getting it straight from the addon author is not possible.
To answer the question of why I do not prefer curse.com is because after being hacked a few months back, I take extreme precautions in everything I do. After scanning many of the addons downloaded off of curse.com I found them to contain key loggers and viruses.
And lastly here is my story about what I have done with my alts for the contest. A few weeks ago in a Karazhan raid I spent time switching between Triaa and Thayloo. Not only did I run both characters to the instance, I switched characters after almost every boss because of what each character needed off of the bosses. And a little side note, running into Orgrimar and sheeping people is quite a fen experience.
And here are the screenshot links:
I couldn't leave out a pic on my Drake after seeing the shining moment of me hitting exalted now could I?
As you can see bongos and xperl allow for many options the default blizzard UI doesn't.
One of my must have mods aside form the core mods of Gather, Cartographer, Auctioneer is a mod called PricePer.
When looking over auctions in the AH and you see for example a stack of 12 something going for 10 gold, PricePer breaks down the price per each unit in the stack so you know what is the cheapest stack if you looking to buy and what your competition is if you are trying to sell without having to breakout the calculator.
A word of caution on the mod that sells all your gray items at once. Every once in a while I will find a gray item that is in demand in the auction house. So if you mindlessly get use to vendering all grey items, you may miss an opportunity to make a nice profit.
