#WoWScreenshotADay: October 2014

Well, I have good news and bad news.

The good news is I finally have internet again! Yay!

The bad news is I have a lot of catching up to do with last month's #wowscreenshotaday

The good news is the October Screenshot list is below!

The bad news is it's 3 days late.

The good news is, Blizzcon and WoD are approaching fast!!!

The bad news is: to celebrate, I have chosen to use the rather difficult list as specified by FatMumSlim.

Good luck, campers. This one will be tough!

Quick update on September’s #WoWScreenshotADay

Yes, it is still running.

Yes, I am monitoring it.

No, because I just moved I can’t download any of the pictures to put here, or make a video from!

Never mind: ETA on that getting fixed is this weekend.

But since you have nothing to do, check out the efforts from our lovely competitors!


The GOOD news is, because I have done nothing about it yet, YOU CAN STILL JOIN!!! \o/

Official "WoWScreenshotADay" badge. Use with discretion.

Ok, I have slaved over a hot computer (read: I have struggled with GIMP's alpha channel settings) to make an official #WoWScreenshotADay badge for your blog.

Obviously, you should only use this if you participate.

So, good reason to participate: You get to use my cool logo!

<Goes off and thinks I'm cool>

Link back to this blog if you use it, please.


There has been a call for help in the WoW community at

"All you need to do is blog (and link) or tweet or DM me your choices and I will compile them into a list which I hope will look like this:

  • SUGGESTION – link to whose idea it was, a longer description/wowhead info if necessary etc

very short blurb describing the basics of the suggestion (time, place, faction etc)
Whether it’s one suggestion, or five, I don’t think it matters. What matters is the passion and the enthusiasm. No moaning allowed!"

My suggestions are:

Get your legendries: This one has been haunting me for ages, not just because I haven’t gotten my legendary cloak yet on my main, but because I have 10 out of 15 Embers for Dragonwrath (my legendary caster staff) and can never find anyone to run Firelands with me. When everyone is able to solo Firelands in WoD, the caster staff will not be as impressive to get and I foresee many appearances of the ghostly dragon over Orgrimmar and Stormwind.
I’m desperate to be the one who gets the L’il Tarecgosa for my guild too: so I shall be grinding this as much as possible before WoD. (Help on U.S. Servers always appreciated!!)

Level Archaeology: I have max level archaeology on my main and found the early levels a long tedious grind. But once you get to Pandaria you can use trinkets and the much smaller map to get both lots of achievements and solve all those cool early area archaeology items like the raptor mount (Fossil) or the clockwork gnome pet (Dwarven). Just head to the Dwarf in the Seat of Knowledge and exchange your crated Pandaria artefacts for the type you want. This can be a great way to stumble actoss some side quests too if you have your “Low level quest” markers on and are looking for your zone achievements. Also, you can use this to stock up on fossil fragments to gain Darkmoon faire reputation.

Learn the Mogu recipes for 300+ stats: Been to the Vale of Eternal Blossoms since Garrosh wrecked it? There are many more mogu there now: most carry lots of gold and windwool cloth, as well as sometimes having ingredients or mogu cache keys. The cache keys can be used in the ruins near what used to be Whitepetal lake. Run down the steps, kill a few mogu, dodge a rather nasty floor, and you reach a blue dragon. I assume this dragon is part of a quest, but as a destro lock I can easily solo him, or dodge him (he drops nothing of interest). Behind the dragon are respawning caches, and each one gives you gold, reputation gain tokens for the golden lotus which are “bind to account” and a recipe. The recipes are not learned anywhere else in game, and require ingredients dropped by mogu or harvested from the valley. Some of the ingredients only last an hour, but once made the food lasts permanently, and it is much easier to make than the deluxe food cart which gives the same buff.

PvP: in MoP the IL of your gear reflects resilience more than having any special gear. So if you haven’t PvPed because everyone has better gear than you it’s time to change that. The gear that heroic Garrosh drops will quite easily beat a lot of conquest stuff. So it might be time to join a Battleground and see how you go ganging up on the other side.

Shameless plug
