Conversation with Yoube Episode 11 – When Brackets Become Guilds

****Refresh this page in your browser if the audio player does not immediately appear.****         Can PvP brackets in World of Warcraft actually be a Guild in disguise? Rise thinks so and I have to agree. A little too vague of a description? Looks like you will have to check out the episode and see just what he means. This was one of my favorite conversations to date and on you should n ...

Item Enhancement Scaling Guide – Your Key to 5.4 Item Enhancement changes!

Once again big changes are looming on the horizon! Patch 5.4 is altering the way item enhancements work. Right now, all item enhancements from Burning Crusade to Mists of Pandaria have a minimum level requirement to use. This prevents low level character from being able to utilize enhancements outside of their current level range. In 5.4, item enhancements are having their level requirements removed, while ...

Second Impressions of Twinking in MoP

When Mists of Pandaria went live, I was pretty vocal about XP-off PvP reaching a crossroads that would make or break twinking. The following three months brought significant and mostly positive changes for many brackets. In fact, twinking looks better for most (alas, not all) brackets in 5.1 than it has for a long time. Let's recap and reevaluate. Healing got a much-needed nerf. Off-healing still remains a ...

Is it a Happy New Year?

As any of you whom frequent the official forums have become aware twink threads are being deleted for no apparent reason. This trend seems to have started yesterday and has continued into the New Year. Now, I am entirely to hung over to work out why or for what reason this is occurring, but surely one of you might have an idea. This is a rather disturbing and unwarranted action. While I cannot speak for all ...

WTB Libram of Constitution, PST

Those were the days! Finding someone willing to search for a Black Diamond, work to obtain Lung Juice Coctail, gather Night Dragon's Breath, and then enchant your helm/legsthrough the 'Do Not Trade' window, is a relic of the past. Many players can remember a time when twinking was perceived to be better or more fun, though nostalgia tends to paint everyone's memories of a Golden Age differently. Some will r ...

[Bug] Riding Turtle

There's a bug on the loose again (imagine that)!  This time is a bug related to every low level twink's favorite mount: the Riding Turtle. In the account wide mounts and companions interface, usually the mounts that are available for that specific toon of yours to use, is not grayed out. However, while on a low level character (under level 20)  the riding turtle option is greyed out.  This lead people to be ...

Screw It I’m Watching The Avengers LOL

As many of you know, it takes a lot for me to get frustrated and it takes a hell of a lot more for me to show it. Let me show you what is simply unacceptable: Here we have a typical Warsong Gulch game. This is obviously the Alliance side and obviously this comp is completely ridiculous. You would expect by dumb luck one faction would end up with a similar comp once or twice. How about 7 games in a row? I re ...

Hpal Leveling 1-19

Ok, Sunday morning I decided to goof off with another Hpally. I sent over full BoAs, some gold, and consumables. I quickly leveled 1-10 and immediately joined my 1st XP ON WSG. This post spans 1 day and the process of going from 1-19 using mainly battlegrounds. Let me start out by saying that I did not make use of the Tailoring Exploit that I witnessed at least 5 times throughout this experiment. My 2 85s h ...
