It does exist! – Part II

Posted in GT Lore, Screenshot on March 10, 2010 by Guntitan

Inside The Forlorn Mine _NPCscan went off while Maintaining Discipline for the White Polar Bear mount. I figured it was on the flight path circling Brunnhildar village. Time-Lost Proto-Drake flies around counter clock wise so I did too.  After seconds of not finding him I realized I might not catch up and to fly the opposite way.

Humanoid tracking was on so I had to turn on dragonkin tracking.  The beast was not on path highlighted by _NPCscan Overlay.  For whatever reason I had a hard time getting aggro flying by him.  I was scared someone else was going to come.  The stubborn dragon did not want to follow me.  When I finally got aggro, I landed near the edge of Brunnhildar village.

Right-clicked the dragon hoping my Hand-Mounted Pyro Rocket went off.  It came close enough that I started to shoot it. Pet was on passive. Turned on defensive. Killed it. Looted mount and took screen shots then got wife aggro for playing.

I rewrote it a bit.

Save 12,500 gold for motorcycle

Posted in Gold Making, GT Lore, Hunter Training, Raids on February 10, 2010 by Guntitan

Guntitan is a hardcore Engineer. He can make the Iceblade Arrows and Jeeves. He just needs to make the motorcycle for himself. He also wants to finish his explorer achievement while riding the motorcycle with one of his buddies or guild mates. What’s the point of having a Engineering mount if you aren’t going to ride it? Saving about 5,000 G seems easier than saving 12,500 G and I needed to figure out a way to save that much freakin’ gold.

Mekgineer’s Chopper / Mechanohog

Gathering the non vendor mats should be easy. If you are a miner you can farm the Titanium Ore and Cobalt Ore with no problem. As a engineer use your Zapthrottle Mote Extractor to farm the gas clouds and kill the dudes in Wintergrasp. Get people from trade chat to help you make your 12 Titansteel Bars. Buy your 2 Arctic Furs from the AH.

You can purchase the vendor parts from Roxi Ramrocket. It will cost you 12,500 G.

Here are my new tips on saving gold:

  1. Find a rare and sell it. For example the Hyacinth Macaw or any of the Raptor pets. This works with the BoE epics you can find from the ICC Heroic 5 mans or from any of the 10/25 man raids. I found the Hyacinth Macaw and sold it on the AH for 6000 G. I should of tried for more but I wasn’t thinking. The AH also takes a cut so I recommend selling the rares in trade chat. From that transaction I lost about 600 G to the AH.
  2. Sell your best mats. Selling 1 Titansteel Bar a day amounts to about 130 G a day.
  3. Know how to save money on jewels or enchants for upgrades. Know where to get epic gems using badges instead of buying them off the AH for 200 G a piece. Get someone to disenchant stuff you find. Then use those mats to enchant your gear. Instead of buying Enchant Chest – Powerful Stats from the AH for 500 G ask someone to do it for you, using your mats. Don’t forget to tip them. You will save a lot of money and still be able to get the best enchants for your T9 set. Sell any extra mats on the AH.
  4. Run the Heroic daily. You get 2 Emblems of Frost and some decent amount of gold.
  5. Run the weekly raid. You get 5 Emblems of Frost, 5 Emblems of Triumph, and some decent amount of gold.
  6. Sell your best crafted items. Use the Emblems of Frost to get the Primordial Saronite you need for recipes you need to craft the next level of gear for your profession. If your guild is progressed enough you can just use the Primordial Saronite that drops from ICC instead. Craft that gear to make some money. For me it was the Plans: Iceblade Arrow. I sold 10 stacks of Iceblade Arrows a day and made about 110 G a day.
  7. Buy one vendor part at a time. This way you don’t spend your gold on something else. You could also create a bank alt and send the gold to them.
  8. What is your weekly income? Think about how much money you are making in a week instead of a day. I can make at least 500 G a day from selling stuff on the AH and running dailies. If I think of it as a weekly income that is 3,500 G in a week.
  9. Look at my old gold saving post I made for epic flying for more tips.
  10. Save more gold for other stuff. You can use these tips to save gold for the Battered Hilt or crafted level 251 gear upgrades or your Darkmoon Card: Greatness.

When you are done enjoy the engine roar of your new bike.

Ironweaver the blog and the hunter!

Posted in Blogging, GT Lore, Screenshot on January 22, 2010 by Guntitan

Aye!

I know I haven’t used that word in a long time.  My long time druid friend now a hunter friend, Ironweaver, started his own blog in his own voice and I remembered once I had a voice too.  Please visit his awesome up and coming blog at:

IRONWEAVER.WORDPRESS.COM

So far the bastard has caught all 4 spirit beasts and found the Time-Lost Proto Drake.  Even out rolled me in a couple of pugs that I invited him to on gear I would love to have.  Keep it in the guild, right?  I inspired him to start this blog and become a hunter.

When his main was his druid I remember him telling me, “You know why I love being a druid?”  I said, “No.”  He said, “You get to be your own p—y.”  Then he transformed into his running form and dashed away.

This one is for you, Ironweaver.

What to do as a fresh level 80 hunter?

Posted in GT Lore, Instances, Raids on November 27, 2009 by Guntitan

Aye!

One of these posts?  Now listen closely…

I think I had a hard time adjusting to my level 80 status.  As a follower of the Wowhead forums, I knew I needed level 200 gear to raid and easily run Heroics.

Level 80 Pre-Raiding Hunter Gear, Enchant & Gem 3-in-1 Guide

I didn’t know what to do after and how to get geared for the next step, Raids!  What do I mean?  When each patch comes out Blizzard introduces bigger and badder raids.  Starting from Naxxramas, to everything in between, then all the way to Ulduar.

I am a late bloomer when it comes to Wow.  I didn’t start during Vanilla.  I burned my levels through Outland never really experiencing Outland instances. I never experienced any Outland raids.  I got to Northend maybe a few weeks after the WotLK expansion came out and was behind veteran players in my guild at the time.  Hail to the Sentinels of Dalvengyr!

For now I decided to tell you what I think, found out, and learned during my time period of being a NOOB level 80 Hunter.

To get geared without having my fellow hunter’s go to everything before and between Naxx and Ulduar I say unto thee:

Emblem of Conquest

Yes click the freaking link.  After you get few crafted 200 level pieces or gear from regular instances, run Heroics and get the emblems to get the gear.  Start with the Crown of the Wayward Protector and then purchase Breastplate of the Wayward Protector.  Turn them in at the Langrom’s Leather and Links vendor in Dalaran.  Follow with the other pieces of gear like the leggings and the gloves.

Do you know of the Heroic Dailies?  Go to the Violet Hold in Dalaran and grab them.  Do them everyday.

Now here is the mistake I made.  Do not go to the Emblem currency trader in the sewers to trade whatever Emblems of Triumph you get from the daily just so you get the gear from the Conquest badges faster.  When 3.3 hits the Triumph gears will be much easier to get but for now don’t trade them in.  As you can see the items and gear you can get from Triumph gear is better than the ones from Conquest gear.  You can get more Emblems of Triumph by running or pugging raids start with 10 mans.

If you are thinking to yourself, “I didn’t know that.”  You’re welcome Noob.  Now pat yourself on the back.  You just joined Guntitan’s new guild called the Young Guns.  Clever huh?

Just to show you how important Triumph gear is to Conquest gear or anything else listen to this example:

Yes I’ve been running Heroics. I was in Ulduar 10 with my guild today and something good for Hunters dropped.  There were 2 hunters in this run.  Me and someone else named Forcemonkey.

Ironaya’s Discarded Mantle dropped but the other hunter had shoulders from triumph badges.  I rolled a 1.  Yes a freaking 1.  A one I tell you.  He didn’t roll and someone who was goofing off rolled.  I panicked.  In vent I kept saying I want them so bad.  The druid couldn’t use it.  I got them with a roll of O-N-E.  If Forcemonkey didn’t have better gear he would of rolled and beat my roll. I was lucky he knew what he was doing.  Now don’t give up those Emblems of Triumph, do some Heroics and the Heroic dailies, and go pug some raids.

‘Til next time…

P.S.

Thanks Urburning for showing me the way.

I can’t believe my luck.

I camped pretty much all day and when I went back for the end of the night.

I flew in to the area above Brunnhildar Village.  Saw him standing there.  Dismounted.  Dismissed pet. Dropped the Freezing Trap.  Forgot where tame pet was on my action bar.  Found it.  Then started to tame.  Yelled for my wife to come see.  Tamed him.  Hugged her.  Told her a bunch of stuff she didn’t understand.  It was around 2 am server time.  Then I started shaking.  Told my wife that, “This is the rarest pet in the game.”  She still didn’t understand.  I started to calm down a little.  People in the area started to come by.  I called 2 of my friends that play WoW.  I hearthed back to Dalaran after I fed him.

I can’t believe it.  My first spirit beast.  I can’t believe I actually was shaking.  Thanks Blizzard.  Only you could create such a emotional response from a game.  I also found Vyragosa in the same spot earlier and killed it.

UPDATE:

I didn’t have the heart to change his name.  I left it Skoll.

What an honor…

Posted in Blogging, GT Lore, Hunter Training on September 24, 2009 by Guntitan

I read WoW Insider everyday.  On the bus, at work(both jobs), at home, while at the movies, when my wife is talking to me, etc…  It keeps me up to date on Patch changes and how they affect me.  They even spoiled Cataclysm for me.  Scattered Shots many blog posts keep me in check and make me a better hunter.  BRK taught me all about pets and gave me reason to play a Beast Mastery hunter.

It is an honor, WoW Insider, to make any list on your site.  Thank you!
