Jun 20 Upgraded heirlooms and lower level alts? Hi! I'm power leveling a new set of alts, and for the first time, I'm using heirlooms to do it. The question is, can an upgraded heirloom be used by a lower lever alt? For instance, if I upgrade Stained Shadowcraft Tunic to 60-90, could a future alt that's just starting out at level 1 still use it? Or is it restricted to alts that are between levels 60-90?Spannerwerks6 Jun 20
Jun 20 Zin'rokh "binds to account"? Hi! Just took up archeology for the first time, since I'd been told it's a money sink and I finally have some gold. What does it mean that certain items, like Zin'rokh, "binds to account"? I have only previously seen this with heirlooms, and those are usable by multiple alts. In the unlikely event I got this item on my DKnight and leveled a pally up to 85 (or whatever level it's usable at), would the paladin be able to use it? Or would that alt also have to find Troll relics and complete it? Is it stored in the heirloom tab? Or would I mail it from alt to alt? Other high-quality items from archeology are stored in toy box and pets tabs, but I'm not sure where something like this would go. Thanks again.Spannerwerks6 Jun 20
Jun 20 3rd Relic - Hunter Hi! I am a bit stuck as I have no idea how to activate my 3rd relic slot. I know it has to do with the class hall campaign - but I'm not sure what that refers to... I'm also fairly certain that I have done all the quests in Val'sharah. Thanks in advance for the help - I REALLY appreciate it.Alwahsh3 Jun 20

Jun 19 Tabards With Alts For transmog hunting, i wanted to get "Tabard of the Shattered Sun" for my paladin, but also want to use it for my Death Knight. I noticed with Tabards such as the Nightfallen and Wardens tabard, you have to get exalted on the toon you want to use it on. Does this apply to ALL tabards, or just legion tabards, because grinding rep for old content is boring to say the least.Velraeth2 Jun 19

Jun 18 Tips for Elemental Shaman I recently just got to level 51 with my Orc Shaman which is now my highest level character since I just started . I really wanted to play an Elemental Shaman but I always have to change to Enhancement Shaman since im pretty useless in battle as Elemental . When I do dungeons i always do the least damage and have the least health . I built full armor that had intellect on it but it did not help much . Now i am building agility for my Enhancement Specialization even though I want to play elemental . Can any of you experience players give me some tips to play Elemental Shaman ?Greenpotatoe1 Jun 18
Jun 18 Just returned looking for a main. HELP I have played on and off since MoP only ever stood for a few months. Bought legion and only quit due to my friends guild I was in breaking up. I have yet to find a main. I have tried arms warrior and felt clunky and ret paladin was boring imo. I enjoyed havoc dh did HC EN, only issue I had with it was the talent demon blades didn't like how auto attack was better than me pressing the button. And sometimes my fel rushing getting me killed to maintain momentum buff. Lol. I'm looking for a melee class that feels fluid and engaging what class/spec do you think fits what I'm looking for?Skeptyc1 Jun 18

Jun 18 3rd Relic Unlocked how? Maybe I missed something in the latest patch or this is from a previous path but I somehow unlocked the 3rd relic slot before finishing the druid campaign. I unlocked it after doing the quest to further research artifact power. That is my only guess why its unlocked. I thought the campaign was required to unlock the 3rd relic but maybe I'm wrong.Grizlybare1 Jun 18

Jun 17 New players searching for fun Hi so I have 3 friends starting to play WOW with me and I want them to like it. We have been power leveling dungeons most of the time, (were at lvl 40 rn) and that can get boring. And leveling isn't that much fun either, I want to get them to end game content but I don't want them to burn out of boredom before we get there. So how can I make the game fun for starting players?Belae4 Jun 17
Jun 16 what level can i solo the black temple? Recently a friend showed me himself going through the black temple raid and 1 shotting everything including bosses as a lvl 102 hunter. I was at lvl 79 at the time and could manage to beat an elite by my self by burning all of my long cd buff/debuff abilities. Now that I'm 10 levels higher is it possible for me to kill bosses by myself, or do I have to wait until I'm around my friends level?Miuoakbreakr2 Jun 16

Jun 15 A New Player's Guide to Gear There is no aspect of the World of Warcraft, other than skill, that will impact your performance more than having the right gear. From a player whose character is gaining more abilities and power on his/her journey to the level cap to a veteran player who raids and participates in player vs. player battles, gear is an integral part of the World of Warcraft experience. This guide is intended to help new players learn all about their gear, especially which gear they do and do not want to use. What is gear? The word "gear" refers to the weapons, armor, jewelry, and trinkets that your character can wear and equip. The gear that you wear makes you more powerful and allows you to take on tougher enemies and complete more difficult objectives. There are 19 different gear slots in which gear can be equipped, which will be discussed later. How do I look at my gear? To look at your own gear, use the character pane. To open the character pane, log into World of Warcraft and press the first button on your mini-menu or the "C" key. (The button on your menu should look like a tiny portrait of your character.) You should see your character standing in the middle of the character pane with 19 squares arranged around him/her. These squres are called "slots" and each one represents one piece of gear that your character can equip. To examine a piece of gear more closely in order to see things like its name, the stats on it, and who made it (if anyone), move your mouse over the piece of gear in its slot. How do I look at someone else's gear? To look at someone else's gear, target their character by clicking on it (or typing "/tar" followed by the character's name into the chat box and pressing enter). Right click on the frame showing their picture, health, and mana/energy/focus/rage (which defaults to a position at the top left corner of your screen next to your character's frame) and select "Inspect" from the drop-down menu. If you are not close enough to them to perform the inspection, this option will be grayed out. If you are able to inspect them, you should see a pane pop up that shows their character along with the slots containg their gear, which you can examine as normal. Please note that moving out of inspection range or having your target log off will cause you to lose your view of their gear. Please also note that you can only examine the gear of a player; a non-player character cannot be inspected. How do I equip and unequip items? To equip a piece of gear, first open the character pane and your bags. (Your bags are opened by clicking on the pictures of them at the bottom right of your screen or by pressing the "B" key.) Drag the piece of gear that you want to equip from your bags to the correct slot in the character pane. If the slot is occupied, you should still be able to do this, as the old piece of gear will automatically be unequipped and sent to your bags. Alternatively, you can equip a piece of gear by right-clicking it while it is in your bags. To unequip an piece of gear, drag it from the character pane to your bags or right-click on it in the character pane to send it to your bags automatically. What are the different slots in which I can equip gear? There are 19 slots in the character pane, and they are as follows: Left side (top to bottom): Head, Neck, Shoulder, Back, Chest, Shirt, Tabard, Wrists Right side (top to bottom): Hands, Waist, Legs, Feet, Finger 1, Finger 2, Trinket 1, Trinket 2 At the middle beneath your character (left to right): Main hand weapon, Off hand weapon, Ranged weapon / Relic What type of gear goes in each slot? Head – Helmet. Neck – Necklace. Shoulder – Shoulder armor. Back – Cloak or cape. Chest – Chest armor. Shirt – Shirt worn under your armor. Tabard – Piece of gear containing an image that is worn over your armor. Wrists – Wrist armor. Hands – Gloves. Waist – Belt. Legs – Pants. Feet – Boots/shoes. Finger 1 – Ring. Finger 2 – Ring. Trinket 1 – Trinket. Trinket 2 – Trinket. Main hand – Weapon held in the right hand. Off hand – Weapon held in the left hand. Some weapons require two hands; you would not put another weapon into this slot if you were using a two-handed weapon unless you were a fury warrior dual-wielding two-handed weapons (mentioned later). Ranged Weapon / Relic – Weapon that can be used at range, like a bow or wand, or a relic that only provides stats. Some classes equip ranged weapons and other equip relics. Please note that you will not be able to fill every slot on your character right away. Rest assured, however, that you will eventually obtain gear for each slot.Haltok59 Jun 15
Jun 15 Higher ilvl and guilds Hello! I am new-ish to WOW, started playing in fall, but not new to mmorpg or healing :) I am trying to figure out the best way to reach at least ilvl of 900...I am currently at 891 and just felt confident enough to do raid finder (finding not getting much upgrades for myself...but still fun and good practice!), and have not yet attempted mythic runs. Healing in this game was different from the last one I played. What are guilds looking for? Is it going to be individual (I imagine it might), or are there some general guidelines? Is 891 considered a "decent" ilvl? Thank you in advance for any responses!Selisetria6 Jun 15

Jun 14 ilvl increas on its own as Char gain exp Hi guys, I bought a few pieces of heirlooms. The ilvl when I bought them was 35, now they are all like 50, 55. And the stats do increase as ilvl increases. Does this mean items can gain exp and lvl for themselves? And does this work on all items or just heirlooms? (Info: don't have Legion yet. Also, I'm talking about the item level, BOT THE "REQUIRED LEVEL" which can be upgraded which gold) Thanks guysCelesteeve4 Jun 14

Jun 14 Let's talk "tough healers". Hello everyone. I'd like some opinions based on your personal experience please. Going to write a little here, so skip to the bottom if you're into the whole brevity thing. I've been a fan of healing since I first tried it at the tail end of BC. No matter how many times I've tried tanking and dps'ing in PvE situations, I've always lost my motivation and wanted to go back to healing. So... I'm no longer fighting it. I need a healer main. With the nature of the Legion content now, I don't want to play alts anymore (at least for awhile... you know how that goes.) And my new main needs to be a "tough healer"... IF that's a thing. You know. A real bada**. The proverbial Rocky Balboa (from part IV) of healers, if you will. My shammy here has been my favorite for a long while, but I can't help but feeling like there's tougher. You know the feeling that you get as a tank character when you drop into "insert zone here" surrounded by mobs, but you couldn't care less because you know they won't be able to kill you? I'm wondering if there's a healer that can emulate that feeling or, at least, which one gets closest to it. Right now, I'm trying a Resto druid with Guardian affinity, but I'm not quite geared enough to test it fully. I've also heard that Disc Priests are pretty sturdy. Outside of this, I have no other experience with other healers. What do you kind people think? Am I on the right track or is there another class that you'd recommend? TL:DR Which healer do you think is best equipped to heal through multiple attackers' onslaughts during solo, world PvE encounters? Let's say for the sake of argument that their DPS is not important.Anemos7 Jun 14
Jun 13 Journeyman riding, new mount needed?? Hello guys, I just reached 40, already learned my 2nd riding skill for fast ground riding, journeyman riding I believed it's called. So, does a player need to buy a new mount somewhere at this point to get that fast riding effect, or that weird bird just gonna run faster cuz he learned the 2nd riding skill? Also, I have a Heartsteed mount from Heartstorm. and regarding the first question, if a player (who does not have an epic mount like Heartsteed) need to buy new mount, do I have to? (Asking cuz heartsteed says "This mount changes depends on your riding skill") Thanks guys, sorry for the complicated question for something I'm sure simple :)Celesteeve3 Jun 13
Jun 13 What am I doing wrong?(gear) Hello, so I'm still new, currently going through Pandaria. I'd do battlegrounds on the side, and I noticed a huge difference between battlegrounds in the 80s and 90s. I looked up a player who defeated me in 5 seconds(stunned) from the 90-99 bracket and he had the following: vastly oversized ring, demar's band of amore, etc. with an ilvl 755 Basically all gear that requires level 101(despite being lvl 99?) with really high stats including 860k hitpoints. When I check my own stats, it's no where near that, especially the ilvl. What I'm wondering is how come the gear I get from quests, etc. doesn't have stats with +900 crit, +500 agility, +900 mastery, etc. like theirs does? Even the gear rewarded from winning battlegrounds only gives +70 agility or so.Furrlex3 Jun 13

Jun 11 Battleground bracket without legion Currently I don't have the legion expansion. If I were to hit 100, would I be placed in a different bracket with only those who don't have legion and those who froze their exp at 100?

Jun 11 Hand of gul'dan imps disappearing too soon? I just got my first warlock to level 10 and switched to Demonology, and when I use the spell Hand of Gul'dan, it says the imps are supposed to last for 12 seconds, but they disappear after 2 attacks, leaving 4 seconds left on the timer. Is this supposed to happen?Teirezias0 Jun 11
Jun 10 Beginner's guide to Dungeon Etiquette The Random Dungeon Finder is an excellent tool to help with leveling and learning your class, and probably the best tool for getting gear as you level up. However, a lot of players go in without much understanding of how groups work, and they make a lot of mistakes in their role and in common behavior. This is perfectly fine for beginners - learning is part of the process. With that in mind, I've compiled a few pointers for certain roles and for dungeon divers in general: Disclaimer: I will be using some common WoW terminology a lot throughout this post. For a list of common abbreviations, see: /forum/topic/2228418470 General (All Players): Communicate. I emphasized that word because it is so often ignored in PuGs. Silent dungeon runs are awkward, clumsy, and often catastrophic. Talk to your party when you need help, when you have a question or comments, or just to lighten the mood. When parties communicate, they work better and they have fun. Pay attention to /p and /s chat. Players can and will speak up if something is wrong or if they need something. Having the channel disabled or the chat window hidden is a poor excuse for a mishap. Need versus greed is a very serious matter, and should be respected without exception. If an item is up for roll, and it benefits you directly (your class, your stats, or your profession), you have the right to roll need. However, it is unfair and uncool to roll need on something that you don't actually need, potentially robbing another player of something they could use. Don't be surprised if you get vote-kicked for being a loot ninja. No one likes loot ninjas. Try your best to have fun. That's what most everyone is here to do. If a pull goes badly, if the group wipes, or if something else isn't quite right, don't get worked up. Raging , flaming, and quitting in a huff isn't fun for anyone. DPS (Damage Dealers): Contrary to popular belief, you actually have two main jobs: deal damage, and don't make things difficult for the tank and healer. Stealing aggro, pulling extra mobs, and running ahead or away from the rest of the group makes you more trouble than you're worth. Watch your threat (preferably with an AddOn like Omen) and watch which mobs you attack. It's typically the tank's job to pull, especially in classic 5-man dungeons. Regardless of whether or not you can get to the mobs first, it's harder for the tank to get the aggro off of you then it is for him to just pull. Aggro on anything besides the tank is bad, but mobs hitting the healer is especially troublesome. While not really mandatory, a superstar DPS will make an effort to take aggro off of the healer right away. If you see someone wailing on the priest, target that bad boy right away and start wailing back. The tank can take the aggro off of you as soon as he's ready. Healers: Your job is to heal. Just heal. Odds are you won't be able to juggle healing and attacking at the same time, and no one is asking you to try. The DPS can handle that. Focus on healing, even if you have time and mana to spare. When the poo hits the fan, you'll be thankful you were patient. The key to saving groups is priority. As much as we'd like to heal everyone, we won't always be able to. The tank is your top priority - he stays alive at all costs. Then it's you (the healer), and lastly the DPS (typically melee before ranged). If a DPS or two goes down in fire, it's regrettable, but it's not a wipe. If the tank goes down, everyone's in trouble. Tanks: Tanking isn't really hard, but it is probably the hardest role in a 5-man group. Tread carefully into this slot. Read guides for your class and for the role in general. Learn how to manage threat, how to mitigate damage, and how to pull safely and effectively. Some players will want you to rush forward or pull bigger groups, but if you're losing health too quickly, lay off. Playing safely is more important than playing quickly, and those players have the time to spare to do the run properly. Watch your party. Mobs can aggro from any direction, and can switch aggro pretty suddenly. The other players aren't as tough as you, and they shouldn't be taking damage for long. Pull mobs away from other players as quickly as you can, and don't get sucked into your rotation. The tank is typically the puller and the leader through the dungeon, so speak up if you don't know your way through a particular area. Usually, a more experienced player will be happy to act as the guide.Halzen23 Jun 10
Jun 10 Quest paths for each race. So I noticed on my Orc and Troll characters that they both, after completing their opening areas, ended up reaching Razor Hill. Now they've both currently got the same quests lined up to do without any variation at all. This is a little worrying, as I don't want to get bored or burnt out on either of those characters from doing the same quests over a second time. So I've got a few questions about this. First, do they ever branch off again at some point? Or are my Troll and Orc destined to travel down the same path, visit the same areas, and do all the exact same quests for the remainder of the game? Second, which other races (On Horde and Alliance side) get paired up and eventually pushed to the same place to do all the same quests? Third and last, does it eventually reach the point that all races are doing the same quests? I assume so at least with end game content type stuff, but I cant say for sure or how soon it would come.Alcodes7 Jun 10
Jun 10 How do I get into a Raid? I have been playing WOW for a while off and on. Just recently, I got my rogue over lvl 85 and was hoping to do some raiding. Whenever I click on Raid, however, it does not give me any raid choices at all. I know that I have to be mindful of my item level but I am well over level 400 on almost all of my items. Still no Raid options. I also do not know how to check my aggregate item level. Apparently, it isn't as easy as it used to be. I was under the impression I could do a PUG for a Raid, but I guess not. I am part of a raiding guild but they concentrate on level 110 stuff, which I understand. How do I get to the point that when I click on Raid finder, I can find a Raid?Saurron5 Jun 10

Jun 9 Want your opinions on ranged DPS So I can't decide which ranged dps I should play. I wanted to make this thread to see what everyones opinion is for each ranged dps class. This is not about which class is currently the meta/highest dps numbers blah blah blah. Just your honest opinions on your enjoyment of playing, difficulty, and whatever else you can think of. I just have a hard time deciding. I've tried them out a couple levels, but still can't decide.Ganryu9 Jun 9
Jun 9 Is it me or do I have bad luck with PUGs? Hello! I'm fairly new to WoW, as I've been playing for about 5ish months, and I have questions about running dungeons with PUGs and my healing output. This is my main and highest level character. I started leveling her as a balance druid, mostly through questing, before I started running dungeons. After a month or so, I switched my spec to Restoration to focus on healing. I use several websites to be knowledgeable about spell rotation and the like, but I feel like lately I've been having difficulties occasionally with groups from the dungeon finder. I'd say 70% of the time, I can run dungeons with a PUG just fine. Minimal casualties, I heal rapidly, and best of all, no one is spamming me to heal them in chat. However, it's really frustrating the other 30% of the time when people are dying constantly, the other members are taking damage faster than I can heal, and they start harassing me in chat. Most of the time, I'm truly trying my best. I'm not intentionally letting people die, but when they start berating me about how I'm healing, I'm tempted most of the time to just leave the group, because 9 times out of 10, they're being a real jerk about it. I'm not saying that I can't handle people being mean to me. I can put on my big girl pants and take it. I'm mostly just worried that I'm not doing as good of a job as I think I am. An example from earlier: I queued for a random dungeon as a healer, and immediately was put into a group for Abyssal Halls. Things were going fine for the first 10 minutes before we lost the tank on the elevator part, and a DPS ran on and pulled the mobs before the rest of the group was ready and before I could cast any spells. They started spamming me to heal them in chat. Then, when they died, they told me to just "do your job and cast spells" even though I was casting and trying to heal them. It was like this the entire dungeon, and literally as I was about to leave the group because I was tired of them yelling at me, I was kicked. I immediately queued up again for another dungeon, was again placed into Abyssal Halls, but this time there was only one death, and we made it through in about 15 minutes. No yelling, no problems casting spells, and no issues with continuous dying. Is it me? Am I the problem? Or do I just have bad luck when it comes to these things? Thanks in advance. DANG, sorry that this was so long winded.Miraszune12 Jun 9
Jun 9 Blizzard Balance Question Does Blizzard Balance automatically apply to a purchase of a service/game even if said service or game is more expensive than the current Blizzard Balance? I want to buy a realm transfer but I currently only have 15 blizzard Balance. I was wondering if the 15 blizzard balance would apply to the 25 dollar cost of the transfer and I could cover the remaining 10 dollars. But the way the interface makes it look, makes me think i'll be charged the full 25.Firebát3 Jun 9
Jun 9 New player - several questions Brand new player also new to this type of game with some (hopefully) basic questions not covered in the tutorial. Also have not been able to locate answers after numerous web searches. I'm on a Mac - don't know if that makes a difference. 1. How do you leave the game? I finally found a menu after about 10 minutes of random poking around, and there's "logout" and "exit" with no explanation anywhere of what each do. Which gets me back to where I was - and what does the other do? 2. I eventually was able to battle some creatures and pick items up - but I have no clue what to do with them or if they should be moved somewhere other than the right popup. 4. Is there any documentation as to what the items are at the bottom of the screen and how/why to use them - other than the weapon on the left and the"?" box? 5. In forum and other areas I see mention of various (I don't know what to call them other than "geographical") regions of the game - how do I know where I am, and do I stay there? Is there a "master" map? 6. In the game, other than things I can apparently battle and the "!" and "?" characters who are all the ones just standing around or circling aimlessly? 7. When entering the game for the first time I got hit with a $9.99 "now or never" upgrade offer. I had only planned on playing for free; I had seen something about a level limit of some sort but it seemed like a very high number. I didn't want to just purchase the game as I have no idea if I'll like it, if it has to be played steadilky without breaks (which I can't do) if it's too physically demanding (I have some hand problems) - plus I'm on a tight budget. But I thought I better not cripple myself, so I paid - only to find out 1) that I must have signed up for an unplanned subscription, and 2) there's absolutely no information about what I bought. Both ticked me off a bit - I don't buy things that "blindside" me. Can anyone explain what I bought; if it's worth it; & if there is there a way to *not* have to pay the monthly fee I didn't know about? Sorry for the long list. Other than playing a few shooting games with my kids 20 years ago I have zero experience with any of this.Silverfaced14 Jun 9
Jun 9 Search for like minded people Hey all, I'm on the Dalaran server, I am new to WoW but not to gaming : ). Right now I am a lower level but i have a plan for my Night Elf Priest and i am searching for people that share the same like minded views that I do. I want to start a guild with friends that I have been questing with and that I trust. I've been looking in game but it's not going so well for me : (. Anyway, if you have a kind personality and don't mind someone that talks a lot (that would be me :P) that I would like to sit down at an Inn that isn't so crowded with trade talk and have a drink, then maybe hit up a few quests and see if we battle well together. Oh, and they guild I want to start is something that I want to be great, I want the Guild name to known and talked highly about one day, so I would really need people that are willing to put in the effort to help me with that. So if you like what you have read so far add my battle Tag and lets chat. Tyonca#1375 Thanks for reading, SinshellaSinshella7 Jun 9
Jun 7 How to Craft? I've been playing the game for about four years now and for the life of me I still can't figure out how to craft. I was told that if I collected enough silk cloth I would be able to use it to stitch my own mount together at a tailoring station, assuming I had the internal organs to stuff into the the thing once it was done. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find the recipe for the 'silk cloth mount', which I'm assuming looks sort of like a patchwork horse. Has anyone had any luck putting one together?Etoxican8 Jun 7
Jun 7 My pet won't follow me? I bought a pet a few minutes ago(Lil' Ragnaros). When I equip him, he will not follow me when I start to move. He just stays in the same spot in which I have equipped him. Also, it says "Cayennedecay's Companion", not "Cayennedecay's Pet" What do I need to do to get him to follow me? Or did I !@#$ up and not get the right thing? LolCayennedecay6 Jun 7
Jun 7 is there a way to "go back in time/levels"? I started wow 2 days ago when I was introduced to it by my boyfriend and I reached level 15 through quests. He told me to do some dungeons with him. I had no idea what those were but I did like three and I went from level 15 to level 26 in like 15 minutes lmao. Now I'm hit with a tonnn of new features (ex. guilds) and I have no idea what any of these means. This kind of ruins the experience because now I have all these things I don't understand, I can't do any quests as they are too low level, everything just feels overwhelming and out of track Is there a way where I can un level or something, or like go back to a certain level, to where I was before?Hemziie8 Jun 7
