Why you MUST invest in Dual Talent Specialization

Dual talent specialization is made available to players at level 40. I do not recommend purchasing the talent at this time unless you have a main toon with a surplus of to fund this endeavor. However at level 80, dual talent specialization is a no-brainer for most classes. At the cost of 1,000 gold any player should be able to afford this and the benefits are great. As of note, there is no type of faction discount that can be applied for the talent. You can purchase the talent from your class trainer.

Newbie Helper: Choosing The Best Class For You

WoW Classes

World of Warcraft offers a variety of classes that you can play with. At first, it may be overwhelming for you when you are choosing a class for the first time or starting a second character. What most people do not realize is that they need to choose the character that fits their playing style rather than a character that is considered “the best” from forums and such. If you pick a class you do not enjoy, you will most likely not be able to pick the character you want. To help, I’ve included a gameplay video for each class so you can get an idea of what it’s like to play with each one.

Picking A Profession For Profit

Picking A Profession For Profit

Picking a profession may be a difficult choice for you when starting a character or power leveling a profession. For most people, they have to watch out what profession they choose because of the amount of gold it takes to level it up. That is why most people choose to pick a gathering profession and a complimentary profession to support it. If you are looking to make gold from your profession in the long run, you are best off choosing a gathering profession. However, the downside of having a gathering profession is that you cannot do anything else than gather.

Material Wealth: Making Money Off BC And Pre BC Materials

Warcraft Copper Mining

Most of the World of Warcraft players are currently busy with their raids and PVP at higher levels; only a few will take the time to venture back into the old Azeroth to re experience the intense moments of original warcraft. This is absolutely understandable as the old continent does not have much to offer to the high leveled players. The only reason you would return is to level another character, help another player, or you may just go around and gank towns and cities of the opposite faction. However, there is one reason that you should go back to the old world that you have left behind; to make gold.

Daily Quest Guide: Fishing Dailies

Each day a new Fishing daily is available from a NPC in the city of Dalaran. Unfortunately, most of these quests involve some travel time which might be enough to convince some players not to bother. Well, I’m hear to today to explain these quests and persuade you to give them a chance because the rewards and monetary gains you can earn from these simple dailies is worth the time and effort required to complete them.

The Ghostfish
This quest takes place in the Sholazar Basin which, if you have the right flight paths, is a relatively short flight from Dalaran. You want to fly directly into River’s Heart if you can. Right next to the flight path, on days when this is the Fishing quest, you will find dozens of people fishing into the water. The quest item, the Phantom Ghostfish, can sometimes take awhile to catch but when you do it’s simply a matter of using the item by eating it. It’ll give you an invisibility effect that wears off eventually (you can speed up the process by right-clicking on the buff icon in the corner of your screen). Once the effect is gone, you can fly back to Dalaran and turn in the quest.
