My favorite WoW websites

21 02 2010

I enjoy pouring over various WoW websites, looking for new tips, checking out loot, and reading about the latest developments. I wanted to share with everyone some of the sites I frequent:

JustMyTwoCopper – This is my favorite site for gold making tips. The blog is updated frequently, and the author is very knowledgeable. The forums contain much valuable information. If you’re looking to be rich in WoW, this is the place to start.

MMO-Champion – If you want the absolutely latest news, patch notes, spoilers, and info on WoW, MMO-Champion will have it first. I hit this site multiple times per day because they always have the scoop first.

GuildOX – I like to keep up to date on raid progress world-wide, and GuildOX is my favorite site for viewing the latest rankings. They also have an excellent loot ranker, which will help you in deciding on upgrades.

WoWProfessions – If you’re looking to power-level a new profession, this is the place to go. They have very simple to follow guides for power-leveling any profession. I use this site often.

El’s Extreme Anglin – Most people hate fishing, but El certain seems to love it. She’ll walk you through everything you need to know, and have you out-fishing Nat Pagle in no time. – The premier WoW blog. If you’re looking for the latest developments in Azeroth, this is the place to be. They update multiple times per day, and have regular articles for every class.

Welcome to WoW How-To

20 02 2010

I’ve been playing World of Warcraft since day one. Over the years I’ve come across many tips and tricks that I now want to share with you. I don’t claim to have discovered all the information I’m going to present in this blog, but I promise that everything I post has been tested first-hand by myself.

A little history first. My World of Warcraft journey started with applying for the open beta. I hadn’t really followed the development of the game before that. A friend of mine, who was a big Warcraft III fan, sent me the link to signup for the beta. We both started off playing Orc Warriors, and had a blast playing in the beta for a few weeks. Naturally we were both hooked, and bought our copies of WoW the first day it was available.

Since that time, I’ve played through a warrior to level 60, raided vanilla end game on a priest, picked up both expansions, and dabbled in end-game raiding in TBC and WoTLK on a paladin, warlock, druid, and finally death knight. I’ve recently tried my hand at earning large amounts of gold, my current high being 50,000g (a small amount compared to some, but a high personal goal).

I pour through the official WoW Forums. I read other websites looking for tips and tricks to enhance my enjoyment of the game. And now, it’s time to give back. I intend to compile all my favorite tips, tricks, gold making methods, and general knowledge of this game.
