THE OUTLAND LOOPHOLE


I remember the first time I got bored in Outland. Interestingly enough, it was the first time I was in Outland.

I was trying as best as I could to grind my way through in order to reach Level 68. It was the required level to reach in order to train Cold Weather Flying, the (quite essential) ticket to accomplishing quests in Northrend.

The point of this post, is that there is always a loophole in WoW; something that has not been discovered that is in a yet-to-be-nerfed state, where, the WoW gamer can profit and benefit greatly by taking advantage of this loophole.

NO LONGER BITTER: HOW I DISCOVERED MY 1ST GOLD FLIP/GOLD MINE


When I first began questing in Outlands, I became very bitter once I got to Gaining Mirren’sTrust and realized I had to go all the way back to the Blasted Lands in order to grab the required Nethergarde Bitter to complete the quest. It was this fated moment that led to my first “Auction House Light Bulb” going off over my (real-life) head.

GATHERERS EARN GOLD; GRINDING GOLD EARLY ON...


So, here’s where you’re at: you’re successfully leveling your first toon from 1-55 to unlock your Death Knight, who will (or won’t, if you choose to create your own model or follow another) eventually become your main.

So you’re rolling this Paladin (again, if you stick with my choices) up to Level 55. You have no intention of starting him/her up as a bag-maker in the tailoring profession, because, let’s face it; you’re going to stop playing the Pally for quite a while once your Death Knight becomes available.

So what can you do during these levels if you’re not concerned about leveling professions? What are some of my tips and tricks to earning gold during this leveling process? Well, it can all come down to one word: GATHER.

BEGINNING AT THE BEGINNING...HOW TO GROW YOUR BANKROLL


Seeing as the majority of the blogs I follow are written for the WoW gamer that has several, if not all, professions max’d, people are surprised at how well I’ve done at building my bankroll with only one Level 85 Main currently at my disposal.

The trick has been developing a smart rotation to ensure I’m not wasting anything and that I’m gaining as much gold as I can by utilizing what I know and have learned, so far. I always try and find the smartest way to do something, which, fortunately, seems to always be the most valuable.

Beginning at the beginning…

KNOW YOUR ROLE (and SHUT YOUR MOUTH)!


Let’s get one thing straight: your goal—your only goal—in this game is to make gold. Just like in real life; it all breaks down to “the money.” Want better gear? Need gold. Want a new mount? Need gold. Want to repair your equipment after multiple deaths? NEED GOLD!

I’ve been where you’re at, right now, sitting like Jerry Maguire on the phone with Cuba Gooding Jr., screaming, “SHOW ME THE MONEY!” Well, I will over time; today, I will show you a few smart ideas I utilized to get my bankroll rolling…

NEWBIE, or NOT NEWBIE?


Have you been made fun of for being “new” to World of Warcraft? Or for being oblivious to something that, according to others making fun of you, you’re an idiot for not knowing? Have you been called a “noobie” or “n00b” and wondered why the idiots making fun of you cannot spell?

Relax! It is going to be okay. You can quickly find out, here, if you are a newbie/newb, or a “noobie”/”n00b.”

TOP 5: THINGS 4 NEWBIES to AVOID!


Now that you are in the wide world of Azeroth, have you noticed there are things you should be avoiding?

There are the NPCs (Non-Player Character) that have the fear-instilling “skull & crossbones” in their level notification area, indicating that if you enter battle, you’re sure to be killed. There are Horde camps (or Alliance camps, if you roll a Horde toon) that have guards that will snuff you out if you venture in their proximity. And then there is real life…

#N4N is excited to release our first “TOP 5” blog post!!!

TOP 5: THINGS 4 NEWBIES to AVOID!

WTH DO I START?! DPS...

If you were to log into your account for the first time and zoom out as far as the eye could see on your map, you still would have no clue how big the world of Azeroth really is: literally, figuratively and metaphorically.

-          LITERALLY: The world of Azeroth is HUGE: just running around your starter zone before hitting Level 20 (and gaining a mount for faster travel) takes TIME. It takes time to run from one quest to the next.
-          FIGURATIVELY: If you do not enjoy doing things trial-by-error, learning on-the-go, or consistently evolving your gameplay based on trends (hot strategies) and changes (hotfixes, patches and expansions), WoW probably isn’t for you. If you do enjoy those things, you’re in for a treat. You will learn, first, about the class/race you choose. Then, your world of knowledge will grow exponentially…
-          METAPHORICALLY: Once you learn the literal world (how to navigate around WoW) and the figurative world (learning classes, races and professions) you will begin learning metaphorically—the stage I am in—where you develop your own strategies based on how you like to play. This is the most fun; where you truly develop your own gameplay experience!

WHO is IMPERIEXO?

GM IMPERIEXO (85 Frost DK)

I began playing World of Warcraft in the Fall of 2008 while living a year away from home in the sand and casino-filled city of sin, Las Vegas, Nevada.

I made the decision to invest in World of Warcraft after finding out that a shot of Patron in a Vegas bar cost me fifteen dollars—before tip. I quickly realized I would run out of money if I was going out every night to either a bar or a casino.

I read that World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King was a few months from hitting the stores, checked out a trailer on YouTube, and I was sold.
