Shaman Macros / Healing your “Pets”

Love your totems, they will always protect you lol. "Holding alt while using this macro will first drop your Earth Elemental, and upon second press target and focus it. You may then procede to spam this macro, casting Lesser Healing Wave on the Greater Earth Elemental without losing your current target. " #showtooltip Earth Elemental Totem /cast [target=focus,nomodifier:alt] Lesser Healing Wave /stopmacro [nomodifier:alt] /cast Earth Elemental Totem /target Greater Earth Elemental /focus #showtooltip Fire Elemental Totem /cast [target=focus,nomodifier:alt] Lesser Healing Wave /stopmacro [nomodifier:alt] /cast Fire Elemental Totem /target Greater Fire Elemental /focus

Warcraft Gold Making Guides

I decided to look up some of the Gold Making Guides for the game, because I don’t buy any gold and will never buy any gold for this game. I ended up buying a guide from Ebay. This was the first guide I ever bought and paid $2.95. I was really excited and could not wait to download it right away and start reading. To my amazement, it was no filled with a lot of information about where I should farm but mainly Auction House Tips and a few farming spots depending on your class, ex. Rogue (stealth). The AH tips are ok, but carry with it risks. As you already can see from my blog- I’m a Orc Shaman( lvl 70) and not able to stealth. Let’s not even talk about any AOE or stun ability. Farming any type of cloth to dominate the AH is good. You can set your own price, because players just need it and will buy. We all need First -Aid, and cloth is used to make more than just clothes for casters. Blacksmiths need cloth also, but not enough to make anyone rich. Listing your more high priced items in the trade channel can save you gold from the AH listing fees. I remember once when I was an Alliance player I let a friend in game sell a high priced item for me because I would not be in the game for a week or more ( real life called on me). I asked her to just take some of the gold to keep and them mail me the rest in my mailbox or hold it for me until I returned. I trusted her because we had known each other before I started playing WoW and she also had my login info to do quests for me when I was asleep, and I would buy her game cards in the USA ( she sent the money I went out and bought it) because they are a bit cheaper than they are in Canada. Well it ended up being me coming back online with no gold from my sold item. She helped me throughout the game with other things, so I wasn’t upset about it. The moral of the story is “ Never ask anyone to do shit for ya” lol lol lol Some people really get gold fever in game. I bought the guide because I want to learn more about how to earn and keep what I earn and not ask guild mates or china farmers for anything. I also learned that most of the guides for legally farming gold are found all over the internet FREE and anyone can put these writings together in their own words, then label it “my technique” create it, slap on some copyright laws to protect it and publish online. What I learned from buying this item is -I can make real money making my own book. Nothing else really. I could have kept that $2.95 and bought some cookies. I went through that E-Book like a bag of Chips Ahoy. Maybe it was just this one E-Book and I just need to find a better Book about Legal Gold Farming? With the Expansion coming on the market soon and new recipes and items up for the buying, I know that a level 80 armor set will empty my gold savings after repairs. I am still on the hunt for a good cheap or free guide to gold farming.

Wrath of the Lich King

When there was just WoW LvL 1-60 I had only got to Molten Core and then The Burning Crusade arrived. I just got to 70 and haven't been to the end game Dungeons yet and now this! I love it, I feel so ignorant about the game, like I need to go back to the level 60's and practice lol. I may put some groups together and do just that, because I see allot of people haven't even been to ZG yet! (Zul Gurub). This is going to be a long winter, but fun too! Still waiting for a faster connection in my new place, I know what WoW looks like on Dial up and it ain't gonna happen :0
