A quick simple guide on power leveling cooking. With Pandacraft coming soon and cooking getting some buffs and specialties as well there is no reason for your main (or your alts) NOT to be maxed out. To avoid the rush, level up now.
Besides that cooking is a great way of making gold as you can often sell cooked meats and fish on teh AH for more gold than the cost of the raw materials.
The first part is the shopping list and consists of a the purchased recipes/ingredients needed to hit 525, the ingredients can be bought from the AH or if you're willing to level fishing at the same time you can fish them up yourself. In addition to using this list for leveling your cooking you can also use it to create a list fish to farm so you can sell them to all those lovely pandas when we get the new expansion too.
I am good to you folks aren't I?

Primary role: Damage dealer
Birth Date: November 29th 2006
Rolled initially as a bank alt called Bevlyxx (Bank of Evlyxx) a female Night Elf rogue that I eventually leveled up to max level in Burning Crusade. I chose teh rogue to enable me to be able to unlock lock boxes only to discover that you only got level ups on lockpicking upto 5x your current level.
The rogue sat idle for the first half of Wrath and then I got bored and decided to level her up. I soon tired of teh female Night Elf bouncy jiggle thing and decided to race/sex change to a male gnome. The name Bevlyxx seemed a female name so I needed a new name and I opted for something rogue like and as I was playing with a South African went looking for a Afrikaans word, eventually opting for Moordenaar, meaning assassin or murderer. I played him quite a bit and was permanently "harassed" by the many Dutch people I encountered on the EU servers who insisted on trying to speak with me in Dutch and eventually this became so frustrating I changed the name to Fingersmith soon after dinging 85. The name chosen because of its meaning, a person with any skill involving the use of hands, most often used to refer to a pickpocket who has never been caught.
He is my best pure DPSer and I always have fun playing with him and during my first visit to Molten Core on him while attempting to gather the Tier 1 rogue set I got the Bindings of the Windseeker from Baron Geddon which was upsetting as I was hoping to get Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker on my paladin but as soon as that dropped I stopped even trying on him. Last week I managed to get the other half from Garr and I am now the proud owner of a legendary!

|No corpse or chest but we DID kill HC Ultraxion, honest!|
After almost 2 months of killing HC Morchok with ease the guys and gals of Exhumed finally added a 2nd HC boss to the list.
After a piss poor performance of button pressing at the right time by yours truly I finally managed to get it right (and deliver shocking DPS, man I should stick to healing) and we killed him.
Awesome work folks Yor'sahj is next!

Farming for transmog gear is a thankless task. There are a number of ways you can do this and none are efficient in terms of gold per hour, but there is a way you can do this relatively quickly especially if you have access to flight which is killing rares as almost all rares drop green items (or if you're lucky blue/purple gear).
But flying high above the crowds of mobs hoping to spot a rare spawn isn't easy, heck it is damned near impossible. Thankfully there is a tool that is perfect for the job, good old NPC Scan.

The commonly accepted reason for the appearance of the Black Market Auction House (BMAH) is that it will provide a money sink for all those rich players who have spent the past 7 years mastering the WoW Economy on their servers and have so much gold that if they want anything in game they can simply buy it and because of this players getting rare items sell things a super inflated prices like mounts for 200,000 gold and more. Heck on my home server a guild is selling boosts to HC Madness for 900,000 gold and people are paying it.
In my previous post, I discussed the BMAH and some concerns I had about it this time I'm going to look at the impact it will have on the prices on your local auction house. Hopefully you'll have read my last article so I won't repeat myself. If you didn't I'll cry but I'll give you a shot at redemption as you can go read it here! Even if the items are soul/account bound I don't think it will absorb the gold from the economy or lower regular AH prices

Blizzard have placed a new auction house in teh Mists of Pandaria beta called the Black Market Auction House (BMAH) and it has generated a lot of talk around the WoW community around Blizzard's reasons for introducing and what impact it will have on the game, players and gold making in general. Today I'm going to give my thoughts on it as a feature and soon I'll follow this up with a look at how it will affect gold making.
So what exactly is it? Well it is an auction house just like the one you'll find in Stormwind or Orgrimmar but unlike those you'll not be able to post items there yourself but you will be able to bid on items that are posted on there by NPCs. Items that are appearing there in teh beta are rare mounts, impossible to get armor (like the original tier 3 from Naxxramas) and other hard/impossible to get items.

A recent post over on WoWInsider got me thinking about who I considered to be the most epic raid boss in WoW. I thought well that is too easy, it's .., and then it hit me it wasn't as clear cut as I thought. The boss had to have certain qualities, a good story, a good fight and more importantly good memories, which as I didn't complete all content in all expansions rules out some bosses/raid content.
So after some thought I came up with a short list and I eventually came up with a winner but it was so close I have made it into a top 5. I'm sure there will be some you disagree with but as this is MY list that is very obvious. and rather than just give a list I'll give you a little bit of my reasoning why I believe my list is right.

Finally Evlyxx get back to posting! And today the news is awesome. For a long time I have despised head and shoulder enchants being tied to a faction and today I have just been catching up on the WoW news and found out this bombshell:
Head enchants are gone and shoulder enchants are now supplied by scribes!
