WoW Alchemy Guide

I’m not going to lie to you, there are a lot of materials you are going to want to buy to complete this guide.

Since patch 2.4 was implemented you can now train up to Artisan Alchemy at any trainer available. To get your skill past 300 you will need to see the Master Alchemy Trainer that is located in each factions appropriate starting city for the Burning Crusade in Hellfire Peninsula, Honor Hold and Thrallmar.

Apprentice Alchemy

This is the easiest step for leveling your alchemy. This will get your alchemy to 60 and you’ll end up with a lot of minor healing potions to give alts or use incase of an emergency. Psyche!! Keep these potions because they will be used to make lesser healing potions.

Journeyman Alchemy

Oh joy!! More healing potions, I hope you have a lot of alts or low level friends. You’ll be making Lesser Healing Potions for 50 levels and then Healing Potions for 30 more levels. Make sure you stock up on Briarthorn because that is the main component of each recipe.

Expert Alchemy

This is the first part of the guide where you will start making less of each item while you’re increasing your skills. From 140-210 you’re going to be making three different items. Ensure you buy enough Stranglekelp, Mage Royal, Liferoot, and Gold thorn. You will get to make something other than just healing potions in this step…mana potions!!! YAY!! You’ll also get to make elixir of agility, these can sell decently on the auction house.

Artisan Alchemy

Artisan AlchemyArtisan alchemy will require you to make 6 different items to go from 210-300. This is where it can get expensive and sometimes intense. This step is oftentimes more expensive then going from 300-360 because the supplies are less available due to the lack of pre 60’s farming them. Sungrass is your friend and will be used in 3 different parts. I recommend checking the auction house for these supplies while you are leveling up from 1-210.

Master Alchemy

Now that your 300, it’s time to max your Alchemy to 375 and get your money out of it. The first three items you will be making require a lot of Felweed, so stock up in anyway you can. Alchemy is one of the easier crafting professions to level to 375, others required hard to get reagents for the most readily available recipes, but the availability was increased through patch 2.4.

The Major Dreamless Sleep Motion can be purchased at Allerian Stronghold from Leeli Longhaggle if you are alliance or at Thunderlord Stronghold from Daga Ramba if you are Horde.

World of Warcraft Trading Card Game

This is a World of Warcraft Trading Card Game Review. If you are looking for ways to make gold please see Valkors Gold Guide. If you are looking for a World of Warcraft leveling guide from 1-70 please see either Horde 1-70 Guide or Alliance 1-70 Guide. Other profession and class guides can be found at Killer Guides.

The World of Warcraft has just grown a little bigger from the trading card’s section. The TCG (Trading Card Game) market seems to be a place where many hot commodities try to get more exposure for there product. Most of these trading card games feel like they were thrown together at the last minute just to make a buck. The World of Warcraft Trading Card Game, however, is a truly enjoyable gaming experience.

There was a lot of spin leading up to the release of these trading cards, and I was excited to pick up my first box of trading cards the day it came out. I tried to order a starter trading card deck online about a week before they went on sale, but much to my chagrin they were sold out everywhere that I looked. So after work on release day I drove to one of the local game shops to pick up a couple of the starters for about $20 a piece. I read the trading card rules and the next day I played a quick card game during lunch with one of my coworkers. I was less than enthused with the card game but I decided that Since I had already sunk $40 bucks into the card game I would give it another go. Later that evening I found myself at my friends house and we were looking for a game to play. I pulled the World of Warcraft trading cards out of it’s spiffy boxes and we sat down and played a couple card games. I soon realized that I had missed a few things and with that fixed I found the game to be enjoyable.

That weekend my friend and I went to the release tournament at a different local game shop, and had a great time. And they were selling starters for $15 instead of $20 so I bought some more. Now having sunk more than 75 into the game I sat down and built a decent (not spectacular) deck, and I will probably continue to play this game for a while.

I’ve played Magic: the Gathering now for over half a decade, and there are similarities between this product and the WOW tcg. I do not consider this a bad thing. The mechanics seem familiar but are executed in a different but interesting manner. I will not quit playing magic for WOW, but I feel like I can easily play this game on the side. The game supports both Constructed
(you build your deck ahead of time and play it) and Limited (You are given a certain amount of cards to build a deck right before play begins) formats. This is an important factor in tcgs because limited formats give new players the kind tournament were you dont have to have spent a lot of money in past to compete.

The game play with this game is good but Blizzard and Upper Deck went above and beyond with awesome artwork and very good packaging. The one thing that I keep hearing is that the starters come in a very nice box. The box will easily hold two 60 card decks (although mine currently holds 1 deck and lots of dice). I can whole heartedly say that this is the best new card game that I have played in the last 5 years (and there have been a lot of them).

World of Warcraft ZulGurub Exploit

A World of Warcraft picture guide to Instanced Zones

This is a World of Warcraft ZulGurub Exploit overview. If you are looking for ways to make gold please see Valkors Gold Guide. If you are looking for a World of Warcraft leveling guide from 1-70 please see either Horde 1-70 Guide or Alliance 1-70 Guide. Other profession and class guides can be found at Killer Guides.

Zulgurub is one of the easiest and most rewarding of my exploring pieces, which has infinite possibilities. This Zulgurub piece will show you how to exit ZulGurub without leaving the instance, you will be very surpirsed about some of the things you may find. =-)

To start out you first need to invite a friend to join your party then convert it to a raid group so you can enter ZulGurub.
Upon zoning into ZulGurub run down just the first flight of steps, then do a 180 degree turn so you are facing the instance entrance. From there run to the corner on your left formed between the Stone entrance way and the cliff.

If you have used all of my other exploit pieces your jumping skills should be well honed by now, because you are about to use them again. Procede to jump up the corner. It may be difficult but again it is possible. Keep jumping until you reach a stone ledge. Once on the ledge position yourself again in the left corner formed between the stone and the cliff.

If done correctly you will find youself ontop of the entrance of ZulGurub, now you can just jump down and the world is yours to explore!

Congratulations You Made It!!!!!!

This ZulGurub guide will help you explore the zone without having to be in a raiding guild. You can leisurely walk around Zulgurub and see all it has to offer. It is an art of its own to get the jumping skills to perform this exploit, but to explore a raid instance is worth it. Enjoy your time in ZulGurub!

World of Warcraft Stormwind Exploit

This is a World of Warcraft Stormwind Exploit Guide. If you are looking for ways to make gold please see Valkors Gold Guide.

A World of Warcraft picture guide to under Stormwind and inside officers lounge or underneath Stormwind.

To get under Stormwind or into the officer’s lounge you must first go to the gryphon aviary. From there jump very slowly and carefully down to the ledge beneath.

Once you are on the lower ledge face towards the wall then run towards your right. You will get to the edge of the castle wall and the hill it goes into. Once there you will be able to jump up along this corner. This is very tricky and nearly impossible, but read below for a tip!

NOTE* It may seem very difficult or even impossible your first time, but I can assure you it can be done and becomes much easier with practice. Once you get up 5 or 6 jumps you will come to a halfway ledge so you do not have to start over again if you fall.

You can clearly see the frustration and endurance it can take to work this exploit. If you are patient enough you can take screenshots, make your own video, and brag to all of your friends!

From there it becomes very easy and is just a matter of jumping the rest of the way to the top.

Now after you have taken your time to take in the sights and celebrate, turn towards the city, and jump onto the ledge. Once you get on the ledge you see a lot of unfinished textures and whatnot. Don’t be scared it just looks like Everquest graphics after every patch they break the game with! Now you have a choice. Officers Lounge or Under Stormwind, or just go afk and let your character sit there.

Officers Lounge Trick

If you decide to go to officers lounge face straight forward and use some sort of slowfall device, such as parachute cloak, noggenfogger, or mages slowfall. If you don’t have slowfall you could end up dying. Then running jump straight ahead. You will fall for about 5 seconds then land inside the Lounge or fall to your death if you don’t have a slowfall device of some sort.

Congratulations you made it!!!!

Under Stormwind Trick

If you want to visit underneath Stormwind do NOT use any slow fall and the carefully drop onto the ledge below you or end up like the guy in the video above. At this point its up to you where you go but here are a couple of good screenshots.

Old Ironforge

This is a World of Warcraft Ironforge Exploit Guide. If you are looking for ways to make gold please see Valkors Gold Guide. If you are looking for a World of Warcraft leveling guide from 1-70 please see either Horde 1-70 Guide or Alliance 1-70 Guide. Other profession and class guides can be found at Killer Guides.

Old IronForge is one of the coolest zones, and many alliance walk over the top of it everyday and do not realize it! Well you are about to be enlightened to this very enjoyable trick. You can then show off your uber l33tness in Ironforge to your friends.

The first thing you need to do is to go to Ironforge and go by the Great Forge facing the throne room. Then head to your left and find the corner between the city wall and the Throne Room wall.

Once you are there you will first need to find a mage friend to help you out. Any mage lvl 8 or higher will do. You and your new found mage friend will then jump up the previously mentioned cornor until you get up to the top. Once you are both ontop you are now able to select the duel command. Engage him in a duel then jump down. and go inside the throne room and put your back against the left door. Once you are positioned have the mage sheep you.

This part may take awhile and some timing, you either need to hope the poly wears off while you are on the far side of the door, or have the mage aoe when you are on the far side.

If done correctly you will find you self in the tunnels leading to Old IronForge.

Congratulations You Made It!!!!!!

Here is just a glimpse of what you will find!

Couldn’t get it to work? Me either the first time, but eventually I got it. Watch the video below to see!

World of Warcraft Tier 4 Armor Sets

If you are looking for a World of Warcraft leveling guide from 1-70 please see either Horde 1-70 Guide or Alliance 1-70 Guide. Other profession and class guides can be found at Killer Guides.

This page is packed with images and we cannot apologize if you are on dial-up because this is the 21st century and dial-up is no longer supported anymore. If sites were designed to be dial-up friendly technology would not have advanced as far as it did. Please see your local or cable provider to switch from DSL or at least get satellite.

Tier 4 armor will be a 5 piece level 70 set that you will find in the burning crusade. It is comprised of a head, shoulder, chest, gloves, and leg pieces. Tier 4 will function most like tier 2.5, where you get item drops from bosses which you turn in to get your gear at Shattrath, but wait there’s more! Many classes have multiple sets of tier 4 armor, for example there is a set of healing tier 4 armor for a priest and a set of dps armor for the priest! Wait! There’s more yet, 3 pieces of the 5 piece set will have sockets

Head: 2 sockets , and a socket bonus with stats pertaining to your class

Shoulder: 2 sockets, and a socket bonus with stats pertaining to your class

Chest: 3 sockets, and a socket bonus with stats pertaining to your class

Tier 4 armor will be the newest armor to obtain. While there will still be Tier 5 or 6 for those hardcore gamers who have nothing better to do. Unlike Tier 1-3 armor this has some special slots added in for socketing. Tier 4, 5, and 6 will redefine how well a piece of armor can actually become. Please see the images below of Tier 4 armor. We do not have any photos or stat information available for Tier 5 or 6 at this time.

Also Note Set Bonuses have not been released yet

NOTE: THIS IS STILL ALL UNDER DEVELOPMENT AND HAS A VERY DISTINCT POSSIBILITY TO CHANGE

World of Warcraft – The Sword of a Thousand Truths

This is a Sword of a Thousand Truths guide based off the World of Warcraft Southpark Episode. If you are looking for ways to make gold please see Valkors Gold Guide. If you are looking for a World of Warcraft leveling guide from 1-70 please see either Horde 1-70 Guide or Alliance 1-70 Guide. Other profession and class guides can be found at Killer Guides.

The Sword of a Thousand Truths guide is not for newbs. Anyone about to attempt this fate must have no life. You will need to quit your job if you have one, /gkick your kids if you have those, and divorce your wife. Also, ensure you do not eat, sleep, take showers, or go to the bathroom for more than 10 minutes a day. If you accept the above conditions then please continue reading this guide offered exclusively at the-best-wow-guides.com.

If you are alliance you are fooked. The only person to do this on any server was a horde character, there is a similar quest for the alliance… maybe.

The quest begins with what is known as an invisible quest. You virtually flag your character to be able to loot The Sword of a Thousand Truths at a later date in the game. Each step must be followed exactly or your character will have his/her flags out of order and the quest will not work.

From beginning to start.

Take your level 60 character to Ironforge with exactly 100 gold in his inventory (you must maintain exactly 100 gold throughout this entire quest line). You must make it in far enough to attack King Magni Bronzebeard, you must hit him, make sure you do or the quest flag will not be received. Once you die, ressurect at the Graveyard. You now have 3 hours to talk to all of the following NPCs in order.

First head to Winterspring. Do this without using flight paths because you will then have less than 100 gold. I recommend having a mage/warlock friend port you to make this easier (remember you only have 3 hours). You must right click Donovan at the springs, but only once until he acknowledges your presence. From there you must head to Blackrock Mountain and meet up with Franclorn Forgewright, if you do not know how to speak to this NPC it’s because you’re a newb. After you have made him acknowledge your presence by right clicking you must quicly ressurect and head to Desolace/Feralas and speak with Rexxar. After talking with Rexxar you must go to Tanaris, from Tanaris you must run west and jump off the cliff into Ungaro Crater. Once in ghost form at the graveyard run to the cave where Ringo is. You need only to enter the entrance of the cave to receive the flag for the next part. Quickly run back to the Ungaro Graveyard and ressurect.

Now here comes the hard part. You must gather a raid force and head back to Ironforge. Again, you must not repair or you will no longer have exactly 100g and you will have to start over. Remind everyone in your raid not to loot mobs that they kill or you will gain copper or silver! If you did the previous steps correctly including attacking the King you must now kill the King. Once he is dead he will exclusively drop The Sword of a Thousand truths for all characters in the raid with the flag. There is no limit to how many character can receive The Sword of a Thousand Truths but others who do not have the flag will not be able to loot the sword. Loot your sword, take lots of screenshots, and then send them to us so we have more proof that this quest works for all those non-believers out there. Please check out our The Sword of 1000 Truths Photos.

The Sword of a Thousand Truths first appeared in a Southpark episode. Southpark and Blizzard got together to make a Southpark episode that involved the Sword of a Thousand truths. The Sword of a Thousand Truths from Southpark is not real, but the graphic and effect are used in the game. I look forward to Southpark releasing more episodes in the future of this nature. For those that do not know, Southpark has been one of the most successful running TV series for 11 years now. Southpark is also Comedy Central’s #1 TV show.

World of Warcraft Battleground: Eye of the Storm

This is a World of Warcraft Battleground Guide. If you are looking for ways to make gold please see Valkors Gold Guide. If you are looking for a World of Warcraft leveling guide from 1-70 please see either Horde 1-70 Guide or Alliance 1-70 Guide. Other profession and class guides can be found at Killer Guides.

The new Burning Crusade Battleground: Eye of the Storm was opened in yesterday’s patch. You start the battleground on a team of 15 trapped in some crazy netherbubble of omg I can’t get out and wait the traditional 2 minutes before the bubble collapses and releases you. Here is what the battleground landscape looks like when you start:

Immediately both factions race to any of four nodes including: Fel Reaver Ruins (bottom left), the Blood Elf Tower (bottom right), the Draenei Ruins (top right) and the Mage Tower (top left). The capturing system is time based opposed to flag based like the Eastern Plaguelands Towers. For every second you own a node you earn 2 points towards a goal of 2000.

A battleground flag is located in the middle of the map and can be picked up and brought to any of the nodes that you control for 75 battleground bonus points. When the flag is returned to a node points are tallied and the battleground flag respawns in the center of the battleground map. First team to 2000 wins.

The strategy and tactics to win involve controlling two nodes and the path from the flag spawn to one of your nodes. See you in the Outlands!

Warrior Talent Guide

Here is an overview of what talents to use as you level your Warrior along with some level 70 talent builds. The best guide to playing a Warrior I’ve found is at Killer Guides. You can always make your Warrior better by getting a lot of gold and buying the best gear, to do that I strongly recommend using Valkor’s Gold Guide for farming massive amounts of gold.

  • Overview
  • Leveling a Warrior
  • Level 70 Talent Builds

Overview

The Warrior is known for its ability to tank. It can shrug off some of the most punishing melee blows in the game. The high amount of hit points a Warrior usually has allows it to tank well against both melee and caster enemies but they truly shine on raid bosses where there is almost no substitute. They have shouts that can increase their allies damage output and they have abilities that can ensnare, interrupt, or stun their enemies. With the recent game changes Warriors are becoming in essence, a rogue in plate armor. The Fury Warrior can put out a very consistent amount of damage per second (dps) that will oftentimes top the raid dps charts in long fights.

Leveling a Warrior

If you really want to blaze through the levels check out either Brian Kopp’s 1-70 Guide (Alliance) or Joana’s 1-70 Guide (Horde)

The fastest way to level a Warrior is to dual wield with a Fury build. Once the Warrior is high enough level to get charge, all that is needed is an area with enemies spaced close enough so that when one battle ends the Warrior can immediately charge into the next fight. Repeat this process until the desired level is reached. Warriors are capable of putting out a large amount of damage and can take incoming damage like a pro, but if the Warrior is not dual wielding or at least using a 2 handed weapon, the killing will be slow.

Arms Tree

The first thing you’ll want for your Arms Warrior is Cruelty. Until you’re level 20 you will want to grab the best two-handed weapon you can find. Once you reach level 20 you can pick up two weapons and duel wield but I would recommend following the Fury tree below if you intend to do this.

LevelSkill
10-14Cruelty
15-17Heroic Strike

20-21Improved Charge

Fury

These talents will set you up for being able to duel wield when you reach level 20. Make sure when you hit level 20 you already have your weapons ready so you can head to the trainer and learn Duel Wielding.

Level 70 Talent Builds

DW Fury Build 17/41/3

This build is for duel wielding Warriors who want to maximize dps.

2-Handed PvP 33/25/3

This PvP build focuses on two-handed weapons, Mortal Strike and Death Wish. Put 5 points into your weapon specialization of choice.

Tank Build 12/5/44

This build focuses on threat/aggro management and damage reduction. Its primary use is in PvE situations with a healer.

Warlock Talent Guide

Here is an overview of what talents to use as you level your Warlock along with some level 70 talent builds. The best guide to playing a Warlock I’ve found is at Killer Guides. You can always make your Warlock better by getting a lot of gold and buying the best gear, to do that I strongly recommend using Valkor’s Gold Guide for farming massive amounts of gold.

  • Overview
  • Leveling a Warlock
  • Level 70 Talent Builds

Overview

Warlocks are known for their ability to fear and cause a significant of damage over time on their opponents while they are running away in fear. They are capable of dealing single target direct damage blasts almost as good as a Mage. The Warlock is a very beneficial group member because it has the ability to cast Soul Stone which allows the targeted group member to come back to life for a period of time after they are killed; it’s very helpful for group recoveries after a wipe. The Warlock has several pets for different encounters, whether its tanking, incapacitating an enemy, or causing mass amounts of damage, the Warlock has a pet for the occasion.

Leveling a Warlock

If you really want to blaze through the levels check out either Brian Kopp’s 1-70 Guide (Alliance) or Joana’s 1-70 Guide (Horde)

Until the Warlock gets a minion that can tank it can be somewhat difficult to level this class in the beginning. The best thing to do is to cast DoTs on the enemies and fear them. Try to keep all but one enemy in the encounter feared or all if possible. Only one fear can be on one enemy at a time so ensure that before casting fear on another enemy that the currently feared enemy is far enough away so that when its fear breaks it can be recasted on it before it reaches the Warlock. When a tanking pet is available all the Warlock has to do to level efficiently is keep the pet alive and keep enemies away from itself.

Affliction

The Affliction tree should be renamed to the “Cast some spells and watch your enemy die slowly tree”. The Warlock can torture its victims while they flee in terror only for the fear spell to break and they die on the spot. By stacking a few Warlock damage over time spells on a target most of the Warlock’s opponents’ life will bleed away.

LevelSkill
10-14Improved Corruption

19-20Soul Siphon
21-22Improved Curse of Agony
23-24Fel Concentration
25-26Grim Reach
27-29Empowered Corruption
30Siphon Life

Demonology

Demonology can make leveling very fast and efficient. It’s not that exciting; send pet in, cast dots, nuke, and repeat. Once the Felguard is an option through the Demonology tree, the Warlock will be capable of dominating both PvE and PvP.

Level 70 Talent Builds

Afflication w/Shadowburn 45/5/11

This build focuses on getting another high damage over time spell from the Affliction line. It can be used for PvE and PvP but
it is most effective when all of these spells can be unleashed on the enemy without having the Warlock’s
weak pet tank. Shadowburn is added to this build for extra damage.

PvP Fire Build 7/7/47

This is a pure fire PvP build that focuses mainly on direct damage to kill foes quickly. It is a very mana intense build so be wary when attempting to take on multiple targets in a row.
