Midsummer Fire Festival

The Midsummer Fire Festival starts on Sunday. You can make some pretty good cash with this festival by visiting the bonfires all over the globe. Finding a bonfire of your own faction and speaking to the NPC will reward you with 5 Burning Blossom and 5g95 at level 70. (it's not known yet what it will be at 80) The Burning Blossoms are used as currency to buy stuff from the Midsummer quartermaster, like a pet or some fun clothes.

Finding a bonfire of the opposite faction and clicking it will reward 10 Burning Blossom and 11g99 at level 70. All opposing faction bonfires may be doused without pulling guards, providing you are sufficiently high level, making this a fast and easy way to get both blossoms and gold. Dousing another faction's bonfire will flag you for PVP combat. The bonfires of capital cities have separate quests and you cannot 'Honor the Flame' of your own faction's capitals.

As there are 32 Alliance Fires and 30 Horde Fires, you can get as Alliance 550g10 and 460 Blossoms, and as Horde 562g18 and 470 Blossoms, not counting quests or capital bonfires.

WoW Twitter

You might want to check out, if you are a fan of Twitter. Wowtwitter is exactly the same principle as Twitter, but it is done from your WoW characters name.....and you can register more than one character per account with them. So you can tweet from your Orc Shaman, and also tweet from your Night Elf Priest, using the same account.

Check it out at You can find me there as Jadelynx. :)

For those of you that are real Twitter fanatics, you can have a sig made that shows your latest tweet, right in your sig. It makes an interesting siggie for forum posts or e mails.

Check it out at

Have fun,


Lots of New Stuff Comin Down in WoW

Well, there is a ton of new stuff coming down in WoW in Patch 3.2. Mounts will not be available at level 20......epic ground mounts at level 40.....and flying mounts at level 60. I have to admit to mixed feelings on this. On one hand, I am glad for my alts, it will make life easier. But, on the other hand, it kind of makes me mad. All the toons I have leveled that hoofed it till 40, rode slow till 60 and were ground bound till 70.....well it just doesn't seem quite fair. Too bad that Blizzard won't compensate us for all that extra annoyance. A thousand gold per toon would be acceptable. :p

The powers that be have seen fit to finally grace us with a portal to Outland in Stormwind and Orgrimmar, so at least we will not have to be traveling to the Blasted Lands to get to Shat anymore. No word on whether or not they will be level sensitive or not. We are also getting a new blimp that runs from from Orgrimmar to Thunderbluff. Good stuff for the newbies.

If you haven't done it yet, go to the Mountain Dew website and register to get your in game battle bot. All you have to do is sign up and the bot appears automatically in the mailbox of every toon you have, on every server, every account that is linked to your account. After you get it, you have to go back to the Dew site daily and get fuel so you can battle other peoples bots. It's pretty fun and free !

Speaking of accounts, if you have not linked yours in yet, don't be afraid. I did it and I am no worse for the wear. If you have two accounts, all it does is give you a central log in when you fire up WoW....a drop down menu give you a choice of accounts and then there is a password that works for both. You can still log into both accounts at the same time to trade and enchant stuff, and so on. So if you have been putting it off, you no longer need to.

Ciao for now,

Gold for Honor or How to Make Money off Killing Your Enemies

If you have already gotten all your PVP stuff and are still getting honor every day......what do you do with it ? Well, there is a vendor in the PVP shop in Stormwind that sells gems. You can trade in your honor for gems that are NOT you can sell them.

Yep, it's amost like being a hitman. :P



Want to Win Wintergrasp ? (for Alliance)

I have found, that if you want to win Wintergrasp, even defending, then do it in the morning. The raids in the morning, like before 1 o'clock, are better organized and the people actually listen and follow orders. They actually work as a team.....a novel concept for the Alliance.

Not sure why this is.....maybe the Horde are not morning people. :) Maybe its because the kids are in school. I don't know why, but I tried it every morning last week and won every time.

Worth a shot, eh ?

Make Some Quick Gold with Leatherworking

If you have a higher level leather worker, you can pick up some quick cash by turning Borean Leather into Heavy Borean Leather. Just go to the AH and compare the price of Borean Leather to Heavy Borean Leather. If you can buy 6 regular and convert and sell the heavy piece for more than you paid for the 6 have an instant gold generator. I do this about 3 times a week and make a good profit, each time.

More Later....


New Patch Preview:

Patch 3.2: Call of the Crusade

The upcoming major content patch, Call of the Crusade, will bring a host of new features for World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King.

  • The Argent Tournament Expands: With the help of Azeroth's heroes, the Argent Crusade will finish the Argent Coliseum just in time to call for all brave citizens to prepare for battle with the Lich King. New dailies, rewards, and more will be available at the Argent Tournament grounds to lure adventurers into the coliseum.
  • Crusaders' Coliseum: In order to prepare for a siege on Icecrown Citadel, players will be called by the Argent Crusade to test their mettle in the Coliseum. 5-player, 10-player, and 25-player challenges await inside.
  • New Battleground: Isle of Conquest, a new large-scale siege Battleground, will be open. The Horde and Alliance will battle head-to-head for control of strategic resources to lay siege to the keeps of their opponents.
  • New Arena Season: Season 7 will officially start, paving the way for all-new items and challenges.
Woo hoo ! A new battleground....lets just hope they have vehicles like at Wintergrasp !
