    To whoever asked a page or two back about the Shartuul event: it takes 30 minutes to complete with Shartuul dead. No matter your skill at doing it it'll always take about that long, probably capping at 35.

    Actually, you can kill him REALLY fast if you blow a half dozen charged focuses. It's not hard to cut him down a third his total life in the span of one Chaos Strike and its subsequent bonuses to the Assassin if you've already got ten buffets and a siphon life on him.

    The non-caster mail all seems to just have agility, AP, stamina, int, and sometimes crit on it. Works pretty well for me as enhancement. Taking +AP over strength isn't much of an issue, since the only other thing strength does is add block rating.

    I forgot about using Chaos Strike offensively instead of defensively. Even so, that'd only work once or twice before you ran through your stock of focii.

    I can never get the foci to drop so I'm stingy with them. I just managed my first focus-less kill of him - didn't use any foci, killed shartuul with like 70% of my health left, and got a depleted badge :D I think I have the event on farm status.

    That's because they buffed dungeon drops in the 2.3 changes but still left all the crappy quest rewards the same, right?

    Also, why are there the "of the Wolf" items? What class wants agility and spirit?

    I particularly like cloth 'of the wolf' gear. you could make an argument for hunters using agi and spirit, if they want to mana regen while they auto-shoot, but a CLOTH user? hmmmm...

    maybe a melee warlock firestone build? =P

    strength is good since it allows kings to actually be worthwhile for the shaman. Every other physical dps class gets a big boost from having kings because it directly increases their stats which increase their ap. With all ap you don't get that boost.

    The problem is that while there is mail that's ok for shamans, there's a tonne of leather that's miles better, loads of shamans I know skip on their tier sets because of this.

    That's not the problem, the problem is the reason the leather is better, which is the lack of strength on mail and the amount of intellect they put on mail gear.

    I'm about 30% of a level from finally getting my first character to 40 (VERY casual player here...what with the wife and kid and job and all...so don't judge me!). Problem is, I've only got about 30 gold to my name, so a mount is a long way away. Best tips I can find online for some quick gold is to grind on Rock Elementals (regular and lesser) in the Badlands, should net me about 8 gold an hour. Anyone else concur? Or have a different approach worth trying? Hunter with Leatherworking/Skinning leveled up high, for the record. Oh, and a dorf.

    Skinning is a mint (at least on my alt). The Medium/Thick leather sells for bucketloads, 3-6g a stack on the AH. If you are Alliance, grind the wolves around Aerie Peak in Hinterlands. If Horde, you can probably grind the animals (and early quests) in Feralas. In between parts, quests completed, and AH you can make good money. A day or two later and good luck in the AH you should have your gold. The weekend is upon us and impatient people pay stupid prices for insignificant things.

    Check your AH prices first though.

    Get back to questing and completely stop spending money and I would wager you'd have money for your mount by 41 or so.

    Its a pretty obvious concept but money accumulates surprisingly quickly if you stop spending it.

    The new quests in theramore give more gold then most of the older quests too I think. As a skinner, quest where there are animals, at your level, theramore and STV. Postponing leatherworking till you got your epic mount will be worth it probably.

    For a bit later, starting around level 45 any greens you get should probably get disenchanted, if you have a guild, look into that. Nether essences and dream dust hold considerable value, at least on my server. Also, if you are running out of bagspace, remember that weapons, even grey ones, vendor for high value, and should never be thrown away.

    Ok, thanks...STV might be the ticket then, as I could probably alternate between gorilla's for leather and continuing on some of the quests I still have there. I really hadn't spent my money on anything lately, it just hasn't been coming in all that fast. I think last night was the first green drop I'd gotten in a couple weeks that I could AH.

    I made my 40 mount money by buying the first aid books and listing them on the AH. But, that was Horde side and before Dustwallow Marsh was a good place to go (so I was basically saving some alts a trip out to a boring zone that nobody wanted to go to). Now that people are going there for the new quest hub, though, the prices on those books on my server have plummeted.

    I see that alliance side, those books are sold in Arathi Highlands (by this guy). It might be worth it to go there. I'd check your AH and see what "Expert First Aid - Under Wraps," "Manual: Heavy Silk Bandage," and "Manual: Mageweave Bandage" are going for. You can buy all three books for around 2g, so if you can turn around and sell all 3 for at least 4-6g, it would be worth it. Buy a whole bunch, and go list them. But only list like two or three of each book at a time. People will try to undercut you, and if you list your whole stock in one go, you'll never sell them.

    What LineNoiz mentions is how my wife is almost able to afford her Epic Flying mount at level 63. She also sells a lot o'Recipes, mostly ones that are sold by vendors in zones that are a pain in the ass to go to. Putting the flight point at the Rebel camp in STV caused her to stop selling two recipes since people just stopped buying them in the AH. And she gets my Draenei who is exalted with Exodar to buy the Master First Aid, Netherweave and Heavy Netherweave books in Hellfire. I buy 12 of each and mail them off to her AH FA character, who sells them over the next week or so.

    And Togfather, your low cash experience is rather common at that level.

    I've only been casually playing a few months and my highest character is only 37, but he's already got all the gold he'll need for his mount.
    I did it easily in a single afternoon by farming Blood Elf Bandit Masks on Azuremyst and selling them at the AH for 20-30 gold each. Just get a map of all of the Blood Elf Bandit's spawns, and then cycle around the map killing him. If nobody else is currently hunting him on your server, you should have no trouble getting a few masks. I think the drop rate is around 1 in 10, so it's not too bad.
    And sense people are willing to pay stupid amounts of money for an easily obtained item that provides no bonuses, it's really easy money. The best part is that since it's vendor price is so low, you can put it on the AH for 48 hours for free so you don't lose any money at all.
    You may be able to sell it for even more if you're Horde, since it's a little harder for them to get to Azuremyst (unless they do the graveyard trick to respawn at any graveyard they want).

    There's this one grinding circuit, I believe it starts becoming viable around the early 40s and continues being awesome for at least 5 levels after. The excellence of this spot depends upon you having both Mining and Skinning, but if you've got them, it's fantastic for making money and very good for experience points. (Or at least it used to be and I assume it's still solid).

    There's a cave up the road from Booty Bay in Stranglethorn Vale. If you look on this map:
    http://wow.allakhazam.com/images/zones/MapStranglethorn.jpg

    And find Crystalvein Mine, there you are. It's full of Basilisks, and it's my all-time favorite grinding spot. Within the cave, you can make a full circuit (it's laid out as a rough circle) and by the time you finish, the mobs should already have respawned at the beginning. You can skin every mob in there, they drop great vendor trash very frequently, and there's also a lot of mine nodes that appear frequently, plus the occasional chest and silver rare mob. If you vendor the trash and auction the skins/ore, you wind up with a ton of gold for each trip. The gold is so good that it's hard to give up even after the experience stops being very rewarding.

    So if you need a mount, and you have the proper professions, go there.

    So my hunter is 67 now and I'll be hitting 70 soon and getting my epic flyer, at which point I need to work on my crafting profession. Currently I'm a jewelcrafter, with about 150 skill. I won't really be able to make money through any rare recipes and probably not through cutting because our server has one guy with a rather firm monopoly. Do you guys recommend I stick with jewelcrafting for the personal bop recipes, or perhaps switch to engineering(I'm a miner)? I don't know to what degree engineering will be better or worse to level than JC after about 150, but more specifically, I don't know how much use I'll get out of it as a hunter.

    In pve, is there anything really beneficial other than jumper cables or repair bots? How valuable is it from a pvp persective?

    Engineering comes with grenades, which for a hunter can be a 3 second get-to-range button. Engineering also gets you exceptionally hot goggles, and a really cool flying mount.

    Engineers also get that mote extractor thing which makes farming certain kinds of motes very quick and easy.

    Have you considered leatherworking as a hunter? There are some nice items you can make for yourself with dragonscale leatherworking. However unless your other profession is skinning leveling leatherworking could be expensive, and the same with engineering if you aren't a miner. Though I'm guessing if you are/were leveling jewelcrafting you're already a miner.

    Oh right, forgot about mote extracting. Is it reasonable to think then that I'd make more money from selling ore and motes as engy/mining, than selling prospected jewels as jewelcrafting?

    Ammunition would be a nice bonus, until I hit revered with the Violet Eye.

    Engineering and Jewelcrafting are the only crafting professions I'm willing to consider.

    Searing Gorge and Felwood start in the high 40s as well.

    Edit: Oh, almost 44. Seems like there should be more in those places for sure. With the experience changes, I've recently leveled a lock and shaman through the 40s. I did most of Tanaris and maybe half of Hinterlands when I was around level 48.

    It's really quite aggravating. I'm leveling a Shaman and a Priest too (Alts ahoy!

    On my pally, I spent a lot of time in Hilsbrad, Ashenvale, and Southern Barrens until around 25. After 25, I went to Thousand Needles until 30, then off to Arathi, Alterac Mountains, STV, and some more Thousand Needles (the Shimmering Flats area) to 39, then Dustwallow to 41 and that is where I'm at now. It will probably hold me over to 43 or so, when I plan on heading over to either Feralas or Swap of Sorrows. Maybe badlands - I've never actually quested in there.

    You could probably hit Dustwallow around 35, because when I got there most of the quests that didn't involve the dragons or the new goblin town were already green.

    20s aren't bad because you level pretty fast on just a few quests. It's the 30s that hurt. Most zones only have a few quests that don't give you enough levels before the quests go red, so you have to go to some other zone and do some stuff there (or grind on mobs, and boy, do I hate grinding on mobs).

    Dudes. Got some boring questions for those of you with Druids.

    I want a boomkin. Not for playing through to 70. Not for PVP. Not for raiding. I want it purely for social reasons. I spend a decent amount of time in the game BS'ing with real-life friends, and I find an infinite amount of joy in the prospect of doing so as an over-sized fuzzy bird/bear/elk thing with the coolest dance ever. I'd just ding 40 and hold her there for all eternity as a bank alt.

    Here's what I need to know!
    1. Does it force you out of the form if you enter a building? (IE: Like how you're dismounted or kicked out of ghost wolf if you step into the AH)
    2. Do any of the action-emotes still work? (IE: Sitting, waving, sleeping, etc)
    3. Does it do anything to your language, or can you still /say, etc normally?

    I also think this would make for a great comfort-shield when dealing with the adorable-yet-scary RP people on our server. They're usually well-established and great to deal with in a trade-sense, but oh god why are you hitting on my poor elf?! /run

    Just some curiosities before I went about making it happen. Thanks in advance :D
