WoW Quest: Bird Down! Bird Down!

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

Locate Thordun Hammerblow, a downed wildhammer gryphon-rider, at the Twilight Shores in Twilight Highlands.

Description

While you were fighting along the coast, I spotted a gryphon tumble out of the clouds almost due west of here.

It wasn’t one of ours.

Likely it belonged to one of the Wildhammer. I know that Kurdran wanted to establish contact with the lost Wildhammer clans as one of his primary objectives after taking the beach.

I can’t spare any more of my men to scout it out, but I can spare you. Find that downed Wildhammer!

WoW Quest: Beer Run

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

Speak with Hammelhand on the road southeast of Thunderstrike Mountain and escort a supply caravan to Kirthaven.

Description

After my sister’s wedding, I developed a taste for that Thunderbrew Lager that Kurdran had imported from Dun Morogh. More is on the way, but our caravan keeps getting jumped by the Dragonmaw!

Head on up to the southeast side of Thunderstrike Mountain and catch up with the caravan. Look for a fellow named Hammelhand at the side of the road, and help him get the booze through the pass.

Just get it as far as Kirthaven, and we’ll take it from there.

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

Bring 8 Dragonmaw weapons to Brom Forgehammer at Gorshak War Camp.

Description

Stay back and forge more weapons? Pah! A Forgehammer has ne’er been afraid of battle! Who needs the safety of home to make weapons? Besides – there is oodles of raw material out here. Those Dragonmaw weapons are worthless, but they can be smelted down to make actual weapons. Bring me 8 Dragonmaw weapons so me daughter and I can forge real weapons out of them.

I always have a tough time deciding how to compose my healing guides for raid bosses. Talking about holy paladin theory is fun, but at the end of the day, we’re actually being thrown into real raid encounters. We’re expected to know how to heal through the incoming damage and handle all of the boss’ special abilities. Knowing the specific healing per second of Divine Light isn’t going to help you keep your tank alive. At the same time, there’s no point in turning the holy paladin column into an esoteric version of StratFu by giving you a play-by-play review of every boss encounter.

Instead of boring you with a list of boss abilities that your raid leader is going to repeat anyway, I am going to try breaking down only what’s specifically important for a holy paladin to know. You’ll want to know when it’s safe to use Divine Plea, when Holy Radiance is going to be most effective, and what you’re supposed to dispel. Who should you put Beacon of Light on? Are any of our “Hand of” spells worthwhile on this fight? In addition, please feel free to ask any additional questions that you’d like to see answers to or add any suggestions.

we talked about tanking etiquette and how you can deal with the heightened stress of tanking an instance without convincing your run that your brother is actor Emilio Estevez. This week, we’re going to talk about how you, as a new or returning warrior, can learn how to tank.

I’ve been playing warriors for a long time now. Right now, I have three 85 warriors that I’m working on, for DPS, tanking, and PvP. This means to some degree I’m in a constant state of relearning the class. In addition, I’m leveling a druid, DK, and paladin for tanking purposes as well, because I think it does help you as a warrior tank to see how other classes tank. (So far, my perspective is that paladins and DKs are brokenly good and druids need a little work. I don’t pretend this is unbiased.) The first and best advice I can give someone who wants to learn to tank is, go out and tank things. While this is akin to the old teaching people to swim via throwing them in deep water approach to swimming, it has several advantages.
