    yeah if you level a prot warrior doing quest its a fucking chore. It goes fast if you want to tank instances. but that gets boreing fast.

    My main is a prot warrior. i leveled as Arms.

    only good thing about leveling as a prot warrior is it takes a LOT to kill me now. i pull a few mobs go take a shit adn come back with them still banging on me and with second wind i keep healing myself.

    I bought the game anyway, finally installed it and played a bit yesterday. I don't know why but this game still have some fun factor and flavor to it.

    I'll play all evening tonight and continue my Paladin level 33 lol...

    I lost all my 75+ level characters when I got hacked 2 years ago.

    They, again, entirely revamped the skill trees and point allocation. It's dumbed down a lot compared to the trees we're used to but it looks interesting enough to give it a try.

    I'll maybe restart a new character, probably Death Knight to have a little advance...

    My friend gave me a SoR and logged on this weekend to check some stuff. I'm behind a couple of expansions. Last one I played was Wrath and it feels like the game was made easier?

    I'm still not sure if I'll buy the game, but I'll check to see if my server and friends are playing consistently enough for me to warrant getting back into it. I'm a semi casual player now, but back in Vanilla/BC I raided pretty hardcore.

    Also, what server is people on? I'm on Ner'zhul on Alliance side.

    in regards to getting your transmog set, cant you just raid old dungeons for that? Or is the darkmoon faire the only way? I might look into that as well.

    I don't know what the five thunders set is, which means it's probably the dungeon 0 shaman set from vanilla (I play alliance, we didn't have shaman then). If that's correct, then the DMF is the only way to acquire those anymore since they revamped the old dungeons / leveling zones.

    I got my mage to 473 ilvl this weekend from hitting GL exalted, buying VP bracers, and then shelling out 24k + for Serpents cards to get the DMF trinket. It's BiS through at least heroic Heart of Fear, so I'll be using it for a while, figured it's worth it. Have tons of potions and flasks and will be using my ridiculous amount of cooking materials tonight to make buff food for first raid on Wednesday.

    Definitely starting to feel burnout from dailies -- I've been doing 4-5 sets on my mage every day (GL, SP, AC, Cloud Serpent, and Tillers), plus Klaxxi about every other day on my rogue, and Tillers on both my rogue and warrior. Going to stop Tillers dailies on my rogue/warrior at revered, and just plant mote of harmony plants. Warrior is a blacksmith, so I can use them there, rogue can use them to buy golden lotus to supply flasks.

    Leveled warlock from 86.5 to 88 this weekend. It's my tailor, and I want 28 slot bags on my mage, which is the ONLY reason I'm leveling it. I have 40 imperial silk after today, with mats for another 40. I figure by the time I hit 90, grind GL to revered, and then AC to exalted, I'll have enough for 6-7, maybe 8 bags. Then I *might* level my druid (LWer) since it's 86 already. We'll see. I want all the professions and cool stuff from them, but I didn't want to level more than my mage/rogue and I'm already past that because of profs.

    damn, I'd like to get that darkmoon transmog set myself but I guess I'd need to make a ton of mage alts in order to get them...because when I look at the vendor on my mage it only shows the mage sets. and I'll never get that many tickets because I already need to buy like 5 pets and 5 mounts before that, which will take probably an entire year to do. I'll have to settle for my Tier 6 transmog, which looks amazing IMO.

    my mage is at 483 ilvl now (/flex). I also bought the darkmoon card yesterday...I was about to buy all the cards and make it myself (at around 27k) but someone put up the finished trinket for 23k so I just bought that.

    finished klaxxi and GL recently, thank god. finished Tillers a while ago and also got to best friends with all the tillers guys this weekend (thanks dark soil). Now I'm working on getting the mats together to make all the stupid banquets you need to make for every type of cooking. The mats to finish those alone are probably worth literally 10k gold.

    my dailies now consist of AC, SP, Anglers, then Cloud Serpents if I have the will. I did all those on saturday and sunday and then spent the rest of the day doing a little pvp and solo'ing some old raids. Did some AQ...I hit a wall at C'Thun though, but it was still fun and I got a couple achievs and hopefully some stuff to sell on AH. also did the argent tournament this weekend...and a ton of pet battles. got my main pets to level 25 and I have caught almost every catchable pet in the wild.

    i have evey set back to TBC saved on my lock. & the AQ set lol its eating up my entire void storage

    as for teh vendor only showing mage set items there should be a dropdown at the top of the vendor window that says "mage" you can change that to any class you want or to "all"

    Can you change the dropdown on the top of the vendor window to show "all" instead of just "mage"?

    Wow, really?! The decks are selling for 35k, and the finished trinkets for 40k on my server. Jeeze! I spent about 24k on all the cards for mine, had I waited a day and known that a couple people were going to undercut massively (the ace and four are pretty rare on my server, lots of people spamming /trade missing only those two, I spent 8750 on those two alone), I could have done it for under 20. Ahh well.

    ahh, good idea folks I forgot about that pulldown. perhaps you can buy the pieces for every class on there.

    yeah I'm on illidan, huge population drives all the prices down. I probably could have saved money by waiting too.

    also, I wanted to mention that I now own a ghost pet named Tupac. and he's a pretty badass fighter.

    staff of zergling?

    you dont mean zhar'doom do you?

    runesword is cool because of its glow and its HUGE, it and CTS are 2 of the the largest 1h weps.

    is CTS main hand? guess i could start farming BWL for it if its not

    have more beefs with xmog as well. i should be able to make my dagger look like an axe if i wanted to, and my staff look like a 2H sword. really feel they dropped the ball on this

    So I have a tragic story for everyone to listen to.

    Back in patch tier 8 with Wotlk, I turned my paladin into a prot. Paladin to solo old raids.

    Probably 2-3 times a month, he soloed Molten core. (for about 30 times)
    In cata, Molten core got easier. Ran it each week quickly, for about a full year (50 times ish)

    Well this weekend. I decided for the first time to run it through with my monk.... and the legendary drop eye of ragnaros drops.

    ...monks cannot use 2-h maces.

    :'(

    I would be on the other side of furious.

    I actually was running forever on my warrior for the eye, though I wouldn't be unhappy with Thunderfury if that had happened. First run through on my paladin for judgement legs, the eye dropped, and my legs dropped. Then I realized Hand of Rag just goes with judgement so well, and I'd rather have it on my paladin anyway :D

    On the bright side, doesn't really matter since you can't transmog to it anyway. It's like having glaives -- yeah, they're sweet, they're in my bags and I equip them sometimes just for show (glaives + bloodfang = win), but I do something like 1/3 the dps with them equipped.

    EDIT: So don't know why I just thought of this, I wish they'd make legendaries scale to level. That'd be awesome!

    Are any of these old raids worth it for making money? I was sitting on like 70k for a long time and after buying the trinket and a bunch of other crap I'm down near 30k and feelin like a broke-ass.

    Anyone share some gold making ideas?

    They nerfed the gold drops some time ago. You used to be able to get ~2k per MC clear between gold drops, selling BoE bracers/belts, and then DEing/selling mats from the greens. You still get the bracers/belts and the DE mats, but the gold drops are only a gold or two per boss.

    I had around 140k on my mage a few weeks ago, then I bought the grand expedition yak (108k) and the serpents deck (24k), and now I'm pretty much broke. I'm in the same boat. I don't know what professions you have access to, but here's my ideas for now (long!):

    #1 suggestion: Farming/cooking: The vegetables sell for a crapton,especially the ones used in the 575+ banquets. If you don't need them, sell them. If on your server they don't sell well enough, get Tillers revered and plant the seed that gives you motes of harmony. Trade spirits for 3x golden lotus at the city in the Vale, sell for ~100g each or use in flasks. 5 minutes daily.

    #2 suggestion: Fishing: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Self explanatory.

    #3 suggestion: Level alts. Alts are SUPER profitable. 85 to 90 on the 3 characters I've done has netted somewhere around 7k in quest rewards and vendored soulbound items, and I've been DEing ALL BoE's to this point. Subtract 2500g for Pandaria flying, you're still left with 4.5k. Not a lot of gold per hour, but if you were going to level them anyway......

    #4 (mage only) Sell ports if you're just standing in a city. On my server, people just spam "WTB port to Shatt" since CRZ was implemented and the blasted lands portal is being camped endlessly. I haven't gotten a tip less than 50g since CRZ was implemented, they invite/come to me, I cast my portal and drop group after they pay. 50g / minute for standing where I was anyway.

    #5 -- dont' buy stuff. That's how I got all my gold in the first place, I never bought anything. I have access too 525+ of all professions except inscription (325 currently, monk only level 52). Helps not having to buy gems (although i do right now since I haven't leveled my JCer), or buy mats/tip enchanters, or buy any of the things listed below.

    Other professions:

    Blacksmithing: Living steel belt buckles sell for ~100g premium over the cost of a living steel bar. Probably could sell 4-5 per day without flooding the market. Might take 5 minutes. I'm thinking the ilvl 450 tank gear and the pvp gear is probably flooded because it's how you level to 600, but if you're tillers exalted and can get lots of spirits, you could probably sell a couple of the ilvl 476 BoE's each week.

    Engineering: SOL. Markets are flooded with the dragonling trinket, best you can do is drop your blingatron daily and hope for the 200g vendor item. I've gotten it a couple times. Might want to check on cogwheels, I think hit/crit would be most popular.

    JCing: Lots of money to be made here. I mean LOTS of money to be made here. A guy in my guild is extremely good at it, paid for an expedition yak and two darkmoon decks plus 50k in under two weeks. I'm not sure what his cutoff is on ore prices, it was all 50g/stack or so when I prospected 100+ stacks for him (got paid 1000g for doing so). Convert green gems to rings/necks, sell blue quality and DE others. Use xmute spec alchemist to make meta gems from blue gems, cut & sell. Colors of green quality you don't use, cut and sell perfects, vendor the regulars. This worked a couple weeks ago, I don't know if it's died down or not. He spent 4000g on ore, left with 16k profit overnight.

    Inscription: The ilvl 476 fans (best OH through MV), and shoulder enchants. Most of all, darkmoon cards. But don't sell the cards, trade until you get decks and sell those. People pay more to not have to deal with finishing it themselves. The actual glyph market sucks because there's sooooooooooo many scribes, and now that you only have to learn a glyph once, not as many sell. I'm generally undercut within 15 minutes.

    Enchanting: Haven't found it. Mats are plentiful, I've got hundreds of dusts sitting in my bank and I've already converted hundreds more. I did get tipped 1000g for doing the caster +intellect weapon enchant. People seem to have extra money and tip well, at least on my server. Check the cost of shards vs sha crystals, if you can make a profit by doing the once daily transmute, do it!

    Leatherworking: Like blacksmithing, your best bet is going to probably be the BoE ilvl 476 items. Also, leg enchants, but the market tends to be saturated with those.

    Alchemy: Transmute 60 ghost iron bars to 6 trillium bars (250g in ore on my server), transmute to living steel and sell for 400g+. Only can do once daily though. Flasks -- I can get roughly 30g per flask in profit on certain flasks, mostly the agility ones. I'm sure mana potions probably sell fairly well also. Not a lot of profit on each, but you can get rid of high volumes on raid nights. I don't know, but on PVE servers I think potion of treasure finding would still sell well because of people farming that area in deepholm that gives absurd amounts of embersilk. It's a giant gankfest in pvp servers, so I can't imagine it sells for much there, but you know, worth checking out.

    Tailoring: OLD BAGS. Embersilk bags (20 slotters) sell for 350g+ in a heartbeat. If you're trying for glaives in BT, save the netherweave and make the 16 slotters at 25-30g per. This is usually profitable even if you buy the cloth. Also, ilvl 476 BoE's and spellthreads. Specialty bags (enchanting especially, definitely cooking bags when released in 5.1). If on a PVE server, buy/make potion of treasure finding and go to deepholm. There's a place with rapidly respawning, large numbers of mobs. AOE them down with the potion of treasure finding, loot, and sell embersilk. Before CRZ, I averaged 40 stacks of cloth and 600g in cash + vendor drops per hour when I did this. Even now on my server, cloth sells for 70g/stack, bringing the total to 3400g per hour. Now with CRZ, it may be overfarmed, and on a pvp server will not be worth the time.

    Skinning: Follow people around in the Vale on the days where the dailies are at Mistfall villiage. The best day is when the gazelle meat quest is up. Just follow people and skin EVERYTHING. I've gotten 25-30 stacks in an hour, and even though they're only selling for ~50g/stack now, at 25 stacks that's 1250g. Not excellent, but not horrible for an hour.

    so whats the deal with the cross realm zones. ive heard people talk about them but how the F do they work, is its just there all the time?

    totally confused and in the dark about this

    herbing and mining make a f ton of money if you dont plan on using the mats, its the only reason i leveled a DK in wrath - faster flying - dual gathering, just raked in the gold

    if you have a high enough lvl enchanter, stop selling the greens/blues you get from everything, DE them all and sell the mats
