Since the patch, I’ve found myself healing through battlegrounds more and more frequently. Before the patch, healing in PvP was always something I found fun, but the patch seemed to ignite that need to competitively heal again. The patch gave us quite a few things for use in PvP.

I’m rubber and you’re glue …

One of the biggest changes to come with the patch was the change to the glyph system. Not only did we gain the ability to use even more glyphs, but many of our glyphs underwent some changes. Now while I talked a little bit about this last week, that was more with PvE in mind.

This patch has been a windfall for gold-seeking professionals for a few reasons, but there have been some changes that affect everyone, no matter what addons you use or how much time you spend in the auction house. Let’s start with the more subtle changes.

What’s the most annoying part about mining and herbing? Unlike skinning, which simply lets you gather from a large number of creatures you are killing anyway, mining and herbalism force you to go out of your way to gather. Before patch 4.0.1, you could only track one thing at a time. Now, you can track everything at the same time!

This will make hunters and achievement seekers very happy. Anyone who wants to use tracking for more than either herbs or minerals can now just pick from a list of stuff they can see. Importantly, this makes double-gatherers much more viable than they used to be. People would typically only take either mining or herbalism because switching between them was a chore, and you could only track one at a time. Maybe that’s why there are so many skinners? Now that you can track both at the same time, double-gathering is definitely the best way to make money with a trade skill while leveling.

WoW Quest: Still At It

   Posted by: free-wow-guide   in WoW Quest Guide

Successfully complete the distillation process and bring the completed Thunderbrew’s Jungle Punch to Grimbooze Thunderbrew at the Nesingwary Base Camp.

Description

Now that we’ve got the raw materials, I’ve had my assistant ready the still. He’ll oversee the process, but I want you to help keep everything under control. You might be tempted to think that we just throw everything into the still and let it sit, but you’re wrong.

Ingredients and heat need to be added at certain times, and the pressure regulated at others. You’ll have no more than 10 seconds to react to a situation. Speak with “Tipsy” McManus when you’re ready to start distilling.

WoW Quest: Song of Reflection

   Posted by: free-wow-guide   in WoW Quest Guide

Soo-nee at Rainspeaker Canopy wants you to use the Didgeridoo of Contemplation at the top of the Glimmering Pillar, the Suntouched Pillar, the Mosslight Pillar and the Skyreach Pillar.

Description

Of course you not as smart as gorloc! You just simple <race>.

You not without hope, though! You show you can learn. Maybe crystals make you smart like crystals make us smart!

I teach you to play song to clear your mind. You play song by crystals then crystals make your mind better… not as good as gorloc’s but better than you have now. Lifeblood Pillar is broken, but other pillars still good!

Unfortunately for us, holy paladins are stuck between a rock and a hard place right now. We’re without Holy Light‘s old potency to carry us, and with Holy Radiance eluding us until level 83, we’re in a pretty weak place. We used to have Judgement of Light and a full 100 percent Beacon of Light to carry us on the healing meters. Now, we’ve got resto druids dropping Efflorescence patches all over the raid while we’re praying to hit even a handful of targets with Light of Dawn. What can we do in the meantime to keep us effective while waiting for Cataclysm?

WoW Quest: Some Make Lemonade, Some Make Liquor

   Posted by: free-wow-guide   in WoW Quest Guide

Bring 1 Orange, 2 Banana Bunches, and 1 Papaya to Grimbooze Thunderbrew at the Nesingwary Base Camp.

Description

Life’s tossed me a cartload of lemons this time! When the ship ran aground, the kegs carrying my best brew burst! All we have now are a few bottles of rum, and it won’t sustain a thirsty expedition!

We need to get some booze cooking, and fast!!

The trees in the Wildgrowth Mangal, to the east, seem laden with fruit, but it’s too high for me to reach. Look for good, strong vines, see if you can use it to shake some of that fruit out of the trees. Bring me whatever you can find.

WoW Quest: Sharpening Your Talons

   Posted by: free-wow-guide   in WoW Quest Guide

Kill 6 Primordial Drakes and then speak with Dorian Drakestalker at Dorian’s Outpost.

Description

The primordial drakes occupy most of the area to the north and east, and I can feel the heat of their breath even at this distance. Before we can challenge the mightiest among the drakes, we must test our skills against the lesser creatures.

Still, don’t let your guard down; any one of these beasts can devour a man whole. Once you’ve familiarized yourself with the combat tactics of these drakes, return and I will tell you our next step.
