WoW Monk Preparation Guide

Going onto gold, you’re going to need alot of this for riding training, new glyphs,

etc. To ensure smooth sailing, keep about 20k stored away for a rainy day. If you

have your eyes on things like raid BoEs, 20k might not be enough though. Then get

bags. The Netherweave Bags gives you 16 slots at 15 gold each while the Frostweave

Bags gives you 20 slots for 120 gold. The more expensives ones are the Embersilk Bags

which comes with 22 slots at 300 gold and the 26-slot Illusionary Bags at 3,000 gold,

give or take.

Here’s a quick start-up guide to save you time going through trial and errors to

kick start your Monk. For more detailed suggestions, go for this Unofficial World of

Warcraft Monk Handbook. Well, here goes:

For starters, make sure to get some heirloom items for the extra XP bonuses and

damage output. This will definitely get your up and running super quick. Between

agility leather and intellect leather, for fast leveling go for agility leather.

Keeping in mind that you’ll have 6 slots, make use of a 4 armor to 2 weapon

combination. There are also infact heirloom trinkets and ring but I wouldn’t

recommend them much until later in the game. This more or less already covers half of

your gear slots. Keep the other half empty for quest rewards and drops.

Then come consumables. If you choose to play a Pandaren, you’re obviously going to

need to stock up on Food, especially buff food to maximize racials. Recommend

Skewered Eel and Severed Sagefish Head. If you want to play as a Mistweaver, also

make use of Flasks of Distilled Wisdom.  As for potions, you can never get enough of

to start out strong. Stack up on Swiftness potions as well as healing potions to

avoid wasted time visiting the underworld. 

Wow World of Warcraft Monk Class Guide

When I read the news about the monk, I knew I had to try out the class but I needed

guidance. For the longest time, I used guides published by KillerGuides. These guys

are the gods of WoW guides. Before the launch of the game, KG had already published

guides on their website which can be located here. I bought both guides, MoP strategy

and monk guides for $29.99 USD a piece. Like all of their guides, their guides are in

an e-book format which can easily be stored on your hard drive.

I’ve been an avid gamer for over five years now and there’s nothing I enjoy more

than participating in online games. They’re fun, dynamic and you can always make new

friends online! My current niche is World of Warcraft! I started playing WoW since

the launch of the Burning Crusade since I wanted to know what all this hype was

about. Needless to say, the game never lost its touch in giving me new challenges to

face. When I heard about Mists of Pandaria expansion, I couldn’t stop following the

news! Seeing that in this expansion, Blizzard went ahead and changed all the classes,

particularly Death Knight to accommodate the changes and new skill and ability

mechanics. I was excited at the announcement of the new class, the Monk class.

Pandaria
Since KillerGuides is now updating their old WoW guides, I’m going to invest in the

All Access Pass which is a lifetime membership with the company. The complete bundle

package includes 200+ guides from the entire KillerGuides library. This is a

worthwhile purchase IMO and plus the great thing about KillerGuides are their free

updates! Whenever a new guide is updated, you receive a notification via their

newsletter. I really think this is a great way to up your game and learn about the

other classes 🙂

Undoubtedly, this has been one of the the most solid guides I have ever come across!

Featuring a strong build section and a copious amount of leveling know-how, I can

definitely say this purchase was well worth it! I see a gradual change in the way I

game was quite impressive! If you were like me struggle to build a strong talent

and/or apply a strong rotation, this guide is definitely for you! Written by a pro

gamer with years of WoW experience, their recommendations were spot on! Want to up

your game now? Then get this WoW Monk advanced handbook. Looking for more than monk

strategies? Don’t miss out on this unofficial Pandaria secrets book!

KillerGuides Pandaria and Monk Guides
Wicked covers, eh? I was interested in the monk class book and without hesitation I

went ahead and skimmed through the guide. I’ll start with this: niiiiiiice! First

off, I liked the layout of the guide; they were laid out in two readable columns and

was written in full on, grammatically correct English. Secondly, the contents of the

guide. From the get go, I could see the guide was written by a professional WoW

veteran because he mentions the changes between Cataclysm and Pandaria in thorough

detail. In addition to that the author went into detail about how to properly use the

monk by following his recommendations. What I enjoyed reading and referencing was his

skill rotations for each of the three builds: Mistweaver, Windwalker and Brewmaster.

Since I’m a tanking Pandaren monk, I have my Brewmaster equipped.

Technically at the beginning I was quite clueless what to do with all these skills

and abilities however, with proper instruction and guidance, a light bulb went off in

my head; everything became easier to understand once I read through the author’s

explanation how this particular talent build can help me. Testing out the

recommendation, I headed off to a secluded place in Pandaria with a buddy of mine to

do some slaying. I was surprised to see the results; I was leveling up fast and

efficiently within the hour plus, my gold surplus doubled! Awesome! You have to try

it for yourselves by using the books to help you create an indestructible monk for

World of Warcraft. It’s really hard to tell you how the guide works wonders, even

for casual players like myself. You really gotta try it out!

Wow Mobile Armory Hack Shuts Down Auction House

This alleged mobile armory hack was discovered a few days ago when a forum post went

up asking how 200K gold escaped a user’s account. The US user in question had three

unauthorized auction house purchases for “white” (useless) quality items that

would normally be sold to a vendor for a few copper coins. Commenters made guesses

as to what the user could have done wrong to allow something like that to happen.

Did they attach an authenticator to their account? Did they have a good password?

Perhaps there was malware on their computer or phone?

In what people are calling a mobile armory hack, World of Warcraft Mobile Armory

users have literally watched as thousands of gold are swept away from them. They

watched it happen on their own phones. The Blizzard team has taken action by

shutting it all down. Here’s a tweet from Blizzard Customer Service that went out

this morning:
Monk Class
Greetings everyone. The Mobile Auction House will be unavailable until further

notice. No ETA as of yet. We’ll provide updates when we can.

The silver lining in this potential (alleged, supposed, rumored) mobile armory hack

is the track record that Blizzard has when this kind of thing happens. Once the dust

has settled and the software recoded, we will get an explanation of what happened

and people will get their gold back… and they will get to keep those level 1 axes.

Then reports came in of the same thing happening to others. UK users seemed to be

affected too. There was one thing everyone seemed to have in common: They all used

the mobile armory. This might be a huge coincidence as the armory app is free and

widely used, even if it just for trolling guild chat or showing your family your

awesome mog set. However the auction house is a very important tool used by all

kinds of players. Going through the forum comments, it looks like there were people

who actually watched on their phones as purchases were made on the auction house

from their account.

There is nothing conclusive stated from Blizzard that this is indeed a mobile armory

hack, but the evidence does point in that direction. At first it seemed that only a

few realms would see the mobile auction house shut down. Then, Bliz posted on their

Breaking News site that mobile auction house was down for emergency maintenance.

Now, it looks like it will be down for a prolonged period.

If it is indeed a mobile armory hack, what else can be done from the armory? Well,

everything you have that isn’t bound to your character could be sold, but that

doesn’t put all that much gold into potential gold sellers hands unless they hit

the jackpot with someone who hordes expensive items. Also, auctioning takes time

(minimum 12 hours) that hackers don’t have. They need to grab all the gold they can

before getting caught. The more likely situation is the continued purchasing of

cheap items for exorbitant amounts of your gold.

I’ll leave you with this: When I use the mobile armory auction house, it requires

me to automatically include an authenticator number. If someone has access to our

mobile armory, then do they potentially have access to our authenticators too? 

Wow Mists of Pandaria Brings 1 Million Subscribers

It’s been a bit of a slow year for MMOs all around. Even MMO powerhouse World of

Warcraft hasn’t been immune, losing over 1 million subscribers in the past three

months. Then again, the fact that WoW could lose what’s essentially the size of the

player base of most other MMOs without going into panic mode is a testament of its

success.
Mists of Pandaria
And it looks like Blizzard has nothing to worry about in terms of player base. After

Mists of Pandaria, WoW’s latest expansion pack, released, it seems like Blizzard’s

managed to grab all of those subscriptions right back. Though Pandaria has only been

out for over a week, Blizzard’s managed to snatch up over 1 million subscriptions

during that time, putting WoW comfortably back over the 10 million subscribers mark.

The only concern now is how quickly veteran players, who re-subscribed only for the

new content, will burn through Mists of Pandaria. Will Blizzard manage to trot out

something new when the player base begins dropping out once again next year?

WoW Annual Pass Subscribers Get Diablo III for Free

Dubbed the World of Warcraft Annual Pass, the new subscription method will allow

players to enter a 12-month subscription commitment. Luckily for players concerned

with breaking their banks, the plan lets players either pay on a monthly basis at

$14.99 per month or use a different billing plan of their choosing.
New Locale
Ever since the release of Cataclysm, World of Warcraft has been taking quite some

heat and losing a fair number of its subscribers. With Diablo III coming in the near

future, Blizzard has revealed a new subscription plan that will help the company

hold on to its precious subscribers.

Dubbed the World of Warcraft Annual Pass, the new subscription method will allow

players to enter a 12-month subscription commitment. Luckily for players concerned

with breaking their banks, the plan lets players either pay on a monthly basis at

$14.99 per month or use a different billing plan of their choosing.

For current WoW subscribers, this means there won’t be much of a change other than

the fact that they won’t be able to cancel their account for a year. The commitment

could be a turn-off to some subscribers, but the rewards are definitely tempting.

For a limited time, WoW Annual Pass subscribers will get a digital version of Diablo

III for free, along with the new Tyrael’s Charger in-game mount. In addition,

subscribers will also be granted guaranteed access to the upcoming WoW Expansion

Beta Test. 

Guild Wars 2 Upgrading and Defenses

The world is out in battle, between people, between nature and etc. War is the most prominent battle between people present. Along with the changes of The Times, the struggle between people is more and more big harm. The emergence of virtual game, can to a certain extent, make the person’s mood to get out.And Guild Wars 2 Gold related transactions.
GDC 2011: Guild Wars 2 - GayGamer.
To get to Toypocalypse you’ll need to travel to Lion’s Arch, at the north end of the Grand Plaza. Tixx is there (don’t forget to stop by and get your gift) and just to the right is a Seraph Soldier who is asking for recruits to stop the toy rampage going on inside the Infiniarium. Once inside you’ll have a few moments for the rest of your randomly formed party to team up and get into the map before the game starts.

In addition to building new defenses, any defense you build can be upgraded twice by taking the same object used to build it and bringing it to the defense. For example. If you want to upgrade a Catapult, you must bring another Scrap to it. If you want to upgrade a Snowman, bring more snow. Based on my first few play throughs, it seems upgrading is more cost effective than building new, but do be warned they don’t seem much harder to kill (with the exception of the wall, which gains HP as you level it).

Upgrading has one other huge benefit and that is that it restores the defense object to full health. If you see an object about to die, instead of building a 2nd turret next to it, upgrade the one on low health and you’ll get much more Return on that investment.

Your Dolyaks don’t heal up after each wave, but every couple of waves Hay spawns around the middle of the map that players can take to the Dolyaks to heal them. This is very important not to miss as your Dolyaks will take damage.

To practice a game character, have enough gold is very important.In the game and can’t get enough Guild Wars 2 money, equipment, property is also so. Then we have a trading platform in existence, but which platform is safe and reliable? Here the trust of platform, welcome to enter to meet Cheap GW2 Gold. 

Guild Wars 2 explorable zone will have a number of skill challenges present

The root cause of most of the difficulties encountered when playing games is the lack of money, how to get enough money to become critical.And you do not have enough money, so you need to find a place to rest assured to Get Guild Wars 2 Gold.
Mike O'Brien on the Guild Wars 2 Beta | Guild Wars 2 – GWOnline.
Every explorable zone (both PvE and WvW) will have a number of skill challenges present that you can undertake as you travel through Tyria. You’ll be able to see how many skill challenges are present in a zone when you load in by looking at the loading screen, or by opening the map [M] while out exploring.

The skill challenge in Queensdale can be found east of the first skill challenge location (Scaver Plateau) on the west side of the Windloss Delves. On the top of a hill, there is a ruined building. If you go behind the building, you can jump/run up the ramp leading to the interior of the second story of the building. Here you’ll find Chhk the Windmill King.

To gain a skill point from this challenge, you’ll have to fight him. Ranged weapons work the best here as he does a whirlwind attack knocking everybody back that is in melee combat with him and causing damage.

The skill challenge in Queensdale is the Temple of the Ages, which is found in Godslost Swamp. This area is in the southeast portion of Queensdale. This skill challenge has a wrinkle in that it is located underwater. You’ll have to swim down and commune with the pillar of light to gain your skill point. However, the area has a Veteran Marsh Drake swimming around that you’ll have to defeat with your aquatic weapons.

This particular skill challenge also provides a nice lore hit for GW1 players, as you can see the statues from the original Temple while diving down to commune with the place of power. Given the history of the Temple, this also helps explain why so many portals to the Underworld are spawning throughout the swamp.

Overall, the vast majority of the skill challenges in Queensdale are not hard to get to and complete. The underwater location in the Godslost Swamp may provide some difficulty if you haven’t unlocked any of the attacks for your aquatic weapons outside of the base attack,while the centaur camp in the Taminn Foothills is difficult if you’re going it alone.Here the trust of platform, welcome to enter to meet Cheap GW2 Gold. 

Guild Wars 2 extremely important to understand

The world is out in battle, between people, between nature and etc. War is the most prominent battle between people present. Along with the changes of The Times, the struggle between people is more and more big harm. The emergence of virtual game, can to a certain extent, make the person’s mood to get out.And Guild Wars 2 Gold related transactions.
The art of Guild Wars 2 to be available in book form | Massively
You can use supply to repair walls and doors within Towers and Keeps. You can repair even if a structure is under attack, negating ongoing damage. However, you may not be able to out repair multiple Golems/Rams – in these instances it’s much better to fall back to the inner keep within Keeps or try to focus the siege weapons down.

Supplies are used for various upgrades at Resource Camps, Towers, and Keeps. The supply used for upgrades comes directly from the Supply Depot, meaning that the Supply must first exist in the depot for the upgrades to be purchased. Players cannot refill supply depots, as previously mentioned, so making sure not to take from a keep where players are going to purchase the upgrades is important.

There are multiple types of siege weapons that you can build. They come in two forms, offensive weapons that players can build within the world and defensive stationary weapons usually bound to a structure.It’s extremely important to understand that only Siege Golems can be moved. Any other siege weapon will be affixed to the location. Whenever you utilize a blueprint, a build site will appear that allows anyone to use supply in order to build the siege weapon. It’s another important note that the last person to supply a build site will get the first chance to use a siege weapon.

Offensive Weapons:Arrow Cart :Anti-player weapon, fires arrows at the target on the ground, but does not damage structures;Ballista:It fires a large bolt that does damage to structures and players, but is difficult to aim;Catapult:Does ground targeted damage to walls, gates, and enemies, but only does moderate damage;Flame Ram:Deals heavy damage to gates, but is very weak to oil and attacks;Alpha Siege Golem: Essentially a portable ram, a player can load themselves into it and move it / assault sturctures;Trebuchet:Long range siege weapon, great for taking the walls down on heavily fortified Towers / Keeps.

Defensive Weapons:Boiling Pot of Oil: Does massive damage below the pot of oil and inflicts Burning. It must be focused before players can begin building rams / assaulting the door;Cannon: It can fire three types of ammo normal, Bleed condition, and Freeze condition and works similarly to the Arrow cart.

Every place has a part of its legends, its own heroes.By understanding these legends, we can better understand this place.The game will usually have some heroes through contact with them, you will get the benefits of unimaginable.On his way looking for a hero, you will find that it is very important to meet Cheap GW2 Gold.
