hi wow_noobs community members....

we haven't had an active mod for a while, so i messaged the community founders who then promoted me. i log onto lj regularly and read all the posts, so i should notice pretty quickly if there's any spam or other unseemly behaviour. i don't anticipate anything though since we've gone six months without anything happening. thanks for being such a great group of people!

i also added a future dated post that will stay at the top of the community page in case anyone needs to report anything or get in touch with me ASAP. all comments on that post are screened so nobody else will see what you write.

thanks all!

edit: since i'm unable to keep a future dated post at the top of the community entries list, i just added in a description on the recent entries page that links to that particular post instead. the post still has screened commenting so it can be used for its original purpose. the description may not show up if you have "view in own style" check marked in your navigation bar.

24th-May-2011 03:18 am - Resto/Feral crash course!
Bolt
So, on whim, I've decided to pick up my druid again, but I really don't have any idea how to play her now that Cata has come and such. XD

Basically, I need a 'Guide to Dummies' for druids - something that is up to date and not overly complex (like Elitist Jerks.)

She's resto/feral, so I'll need suggestions for both specs.

Thanks in advance!
22nd-May-2011 11:51 pm - Tips for tanking?
Hey all. I'm pretty new to WoW, started about a month ago. I just recently began leveling a Protadin so that I could tank when I do instances with friends. I've only done them before as DPS on my Undead Rogue, and I did my first as a (lvl 18) tank today. We got through it in one run, I wasn't awful, but.. I obviously wasn't great, either :P
Does anyone have any tips for being a good tank? I'm already reading the post over at wow_ladies about helpful addons for tanks and I've researched speccing as well, but I'd really appreciate any other tips you can offer. Thanks!
17th-May-2011 10:48 pm - Rearranging Quests
Kitteh
Hi!

I just started playing a few days ago and am running into a bit of trouble with the quests--not completing them, but rearranging them.

I have 13 ongoing currently, and some of them I'm not going to be able to get to for a while, but of course those are the ones nearest to the top, meaning I have to go into the menu every time to find the ones that I am completing.

Is there any way to shift things around so the quests I want show up on the screen?
Artwork - Feel The Magic
If I have gold out the wazoo, whats to keep me from changing my Alch specialization from transmute to potion and back every other day (namely to potion every Tuesday morning so I can make enough volcanics to raid for the week, then switch back to transmute) if I'm willing to eat the cost?

Does the 150g transfer fee go up and scale with each additional specialty change? Do cooldowns or procs get penalized in any way?

TY

Hi folks. I have a (kind of silly) question for you:

Is there an in-game command to temporarily hide toolbars and icons and whatnot on the screen so I can take screenshots without them cluttering it up, or am I just imagining this? I swear I remember a tooltip about this popping up about in months ago when I started playing with a new toon, but I can't for the life of me see anything about it in the key bindings and google isn't being too helpful (although admittedly I don't really know how to word my search).

Thanks!
3rd-Apr-2011 05:45 pm - Moonkin Balance bar
Fantasy, Mage, Gaming, Gamer girl
My google-fu is failing me something spectacular today, so I come to you for help. How should that Sun and Moon bar under my health and mana bar in Balance spec affect my strategy? It looks like canceling the Sun or Moon effect (when the meter hits either the far right or the far left) isn't particularly smart because it means my damage output goes down, but unless I am very much mistaken it also means I can't use half my spells... Any help, explanations or rotations are most appreciated.

I’ve created a survey here, and if anyone would be interested in being interviewed further, just fill out your email address in the space provided on the survey. Thanks again and happy raiding!

Hellboy; And on his head a crown of fire
Hey guys, sorta n00b here. I've been playing for a bit but as yet I haven't used the AH. On my pally alt, I trained in mining and skinning for the buffs and of course, the cash flow, but... I know I could be selling skins and ore in the AH for more money. My question is this; how should I price leather/ore in the AH so that it's fair but not too low?

ETA:

Thanks to everyone who helped! I don't want to reply to every comment and clutter up a bunch of LJers inboxes, so thank you all very very very much.
16th-Mar-2011 04:20 am - Pally tanking!
Fox
My old main was a holy pally, and I've finally picked her back up, though this time I'll be tanking as her.

I know most of the dungeons well enough and have a pretty good idea of what I need to be doing as a pally tank, but I'm still pretty new to it. I realize that a lot of it will come with experience, and whereas I think I'm doing alright (I've run several Cata normals), I'd like a point in the right direction for a guide that won't be too overwhelming in complexity in order to improve myself even more.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. :)

3rd-Mar-2011 11:39 am - Question
FUNNY - Elephant Trampoline [ANI]
I was wondering if anyone could tell me the answer to this....

I have a friend that wants to do a 10 day free trial, he wants to just try out the game however comma when he gets more money he wants me to use the recruit a friend thing to a different e mail address...Will this work? Does wow log your IP or does it just run off the e mail...

Example...Set up an account under a e mail address today

In like 20 days have me recruit him using a different e mail address

Will i still get the credit and the mount if we do this?


Also anyone that has recruited a friend....If they pay for 2 months do you get the mount and the free month or just the rocket?

I am thinking i'd rather have the free time if i had to pick but i was just wondering.

Thanks so much...

17th-Feb-2011 08:44 am - Disc suggestions
Fox
I was pretty well versed in disc/holy before all of the big changes came, and whereas I think I'm beginning to get a grasp on how things work, I'm still having difficulty in heroics. I'm not to the point where I can afford two sets of gear for each spec yet, unfortunately. ^_^;

I know Cata heroics are meant to be more difficult than Wrath and my gear isn't great yet, but I'm looking for some suggestions on how to improve myself. I don't think that I'm doing terribly, but I do feel like maybe I could be doing better.

I'm usually specced disc/holy, but I'm shadow for OS at the moment since I'm trying to run heroics with my guild, and I can only heal through some of them - I've only been in Throne of the Tides, Deadmines, Halls of Origination, and Tol'vir. I'm able to heal through those just fine except for Cookie (I haven't tried Vanessa, since someone else in my party swapped roles with me after Cookie) in Deadmines and the last boss of Tol'vir.

Here's my armoury link: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/blackhand/leora/talent/primary

Suggestions for gemming, enchants, etc, anything at all would be appreciated. Like I said, I don't quite know the new stuff like the back of my hand yet since I haven't had as much time to read up and research super thoroughly (spring semester, you know.) I know that I'm missing a few enchants as well, but I'll get that taken care of soon.

Thanks in advance!
