Granted this is an NPC, but still…the new orc models are stunning.

Okay, let’s have some fun here. How about a little contest..? It’s been awhile since I’ve done something like this, and I have an Eye of the Legion loot card sitting on my desk that some lucky person might like to have.

Here are some questions I want you to answer:

What is this orc’s name?

Why is his skin not green?

Was he among the Warlords of Draenor?

Who was his best friend?

Which clan did he hail from?

What was his mate’s name?

What is his son’s name?

What character class would he have been?

What was the name of the elder shaman who led this orc on his rite of passage, taking him to meet the ancestors?

Answer all nine questions correctly and you could win an Eye of the Legion pet. Leave your answers in a comment below. I’ll pick a random winner tomorrow morning.

Be sure to put your email address in when filling out your comment. I’ll need it to send you the loot code for the pet! :D

Good luck!

19 Twink Huntering

Schoolin’ fools in my Nat Pagle’s

Back before I began this website, I was really active in the 10-19 PvP bracket. It’s not something I’ve discussed much on here over the years, but I was part of a 10 man team that was considered tops in the Vengeance battlegroup. We used to schedule premade Warsong Gulch matches with competitive horde guilds, and let me tell you…a few of those matches were the most epic PvP battles I’ve ever been a part of. I’ll talk more about this in a future post.

These days twinking is nowhere near the competitive and popular subculture that it once was. There was a time when my 19 hunter was more or less my main. Crazy, right?! Not if you were into it.

Being a a competitive twink means you’re always striving to have the best gear imaginable. This is part of what made twinking so fun back in the day. There were no heirloom items, and properly optimizing your character for competitive play took some serious work, but gearing your twink was fun and rewarding.

It took me about 6 years or so, but I finally got Attumen to hand over his mount!

I had wanted this mount very badly all throughout TBC when I had been running Karazhan with my guild. Never once did I see it drop.

Later on in Wrath I began to solo Attumen on occasion, still hoping to add this mount to my collection, but no luck. In Cataclysm I tried here and there with no success, then I just kind of forgot about it.

About 6 months ago I decided to give Attumen weekly beatings until he handed Midnight over to me. I’d say I hit Kara probably 3 out of 4 weeks for about 5-6 months. In that time I vendored a boatload of Worgen Claw Necklaces, but still no mount.

Hunter Weak Auras Strings

by Garwulf on February 18, 2014 · 2 comments

Hello again!

I’m going to put together a more comprehensive guide for Weak Auras, but in the meantime…I figured I’d share my WA strings for you tech-savvy folks who are familiar with the addon and its import feature.

For those of you who don’t know about the Weak Auras addon of which I speak, it’s a form of heads-up notification for cooldowns, procs, buffs, debuffs, etc… It’s a very powerful addon, which I’ve come to rely on quite a bit, just as I used to with Power Auras.

Hunter Weak Auras

My Hunter Weak Auras

I have 9 auras configured. The hairy eyeball aura off to the left is something I’d set up for a Warrior alt of mine. It has something to do with when he gets angry or upset. Pay that one no mind. I’m here to discuss Weak Auras for huntering.
