I just figured out that these were once the regular dogs that were here.

My brother wanted me to move servers with him so he paid for my server transfers.  Crazy huh?

I redid the bank alt about 4 times on the new server.  I finally settled for the name Skullcoins (she’s a DK).  Used the same white hair color, face, skin color or as close as I could remember.  Originally I was leveling this Death Knight thinking Doubloon is still on Sargeras and I left her behind.

Felt guilty about leaving her but it had to be done.  When I finally got to Stormwind, I purchased x8 inexpensive Netherweave Bags and x4 Frostweave Bags.  Purchased the bank slots and equipped the bags.

I purchased the guild charter and luckily got 4 guildless souls to sign my charter, one was Liddy.  I named the new guild bank <The Nightmare Banker>.  Then Purchased the first 3 guild bank slots.  I’ll probably pick up more slots when I start to make more gold.

I started to put back all the mats, BOAs, etc in the bank and newly formed guild bank.  We were putting things on the AH and moving items between toons.  She started to feel like Doubloon.

Then as soon as I moved over my old bank alt gear to her and equipped them.  She transformed back in to Doubloon.  My bank alt is back.  Same skin, different name and a higher level.  The benefits out weighed the costs.  You now have a better bank alt.

The Bank Alt

Professsions

She will cook for you, fish for you, store your goods, organize your bank for you, run to the store for you, etc.  Just like a good house wife. She already comes equipped ready to bandage you with First Aid at level 270 and unlocked recipes.

You can still put Enchanting and Engineering on her.  She will have access to higher profession levels which is especially useful for disenchanting low level mats.

Gear

She will wear the finest outfits up to level 60 or greater which equates to more looks. She can still equip the Diamond-Tipped Cane.  She also has access to pink hair if you are a Night Elf.  My brother recommends leveling your bank alt to level 70 so you can have access to more variation of looks with the gear from Outland.

Travel

She will have a mini sprint called Death’s Advance.  She will also get free ground riding from being a Death Knight.  The Death Gate to Ebon Hold will get you around Azeroth.  She will have access to a bunch of flight points for access to those secret vendors that sell you those recipes and other items for profit.   She will even ride your flying mount because just one more level and she’ll have flight.

If you level the bank alt higher you will get access to unique but useful traveling abilities.

Level 58
Death’s Advocate – A mini sprint which increases your passive run speed by 10% and when activated will increase your run speed by 30%.

Level 61
On a Pale Horse – An ability that passively increases your mount speed by 20%.

Level 66
Path of Frost – An ability which will allow you and your raid members to walk on water.  This ability is so useful my brother actually won the Stranglethorn fishing tournament on a level 70 Death Knight.  He did get a lot of unpleasant whispers that day.

Please see additional information on the original The Bank Alt Post.  I hope you will take the time to redo your bank alts.  It was the most unpleasant experience of my life but worth it.  It was like pulling String of Alligator Teeth out of the Bag of Shiny Things from Dalaran’s fishing daily .

I am currently unsubbed. First time since I started playing.

It’s hard logging in and seeing my toons inactive and being forced to play low level toons.

I might level a new Gnome warrior to help me get back in to the game or I might wait until Legion comes out.

For now the days of streaming Anime on Crunchyroll is prominent in my life. I also watched Arrow season 3 on Netflix over a span of less than a week.

There are also some free to play MMOs you could try like DCUO, SWTOR, Firefall, LOL, etc.  You could also resurrect your Wii or PS3 and complete games you haven’t played or fire up your next Gen console PS4 or Xbox One.

For me streaming videos and trying out something new is on my list.

What are you doing?

‘Til Next Time…

I promised the wife I would sleep early tonight so I am going to keep this short.  Now it isn’t because of the recent announcement at Gamescon that is making me not sleep.  My grandmother passed away and I’ve been trying to come up with memorable and fun stories, I can share at the funeral.  Even though my blog posts have been dormant since February, I’ve been continually active  with the World of Warcraft community on Twitter, so please follow me @Guntitan.

Back to the expansion announcement.  I am excited.  Let Hunters tame frogs and I’ll be all set! Just kidding.

Demon Hunters

The biggest announcement for me is Demon Hunters.  I’ve been waiting to play a Demon hunter since WotLK and I was first introduced to Illidan to farm for drops for  Warglaives of Azinoth and Cursed Vision of Sargeras.  I have successfully gotten the helm on  a few toons but unsuccessful at getting the Warglaives. Just to achieve that look would be awesome.  Now with the upcoming expansion we can!

No Weapon Drops

I am also excited for no weapon drops.

Why?  I always felt progression should be about skill.  With gear drops you are also limited with progression by luck.  MoP and WoD changed this with personal loot system and changing raiding and introducing flex raiding.

When Guntitan was a full time raider back in WotLK and Cata sometimes we would not be able to move on to the next boss without getting more DPS out of weapon drops.  It was such a waste of time waiting week by week for a specific drop.

With the new weapon system we will be encourage to play the game and still be able to progress thru content by getting more powerful without depending on one specific item.  We are getting that major determining factor for our DPS from the start and the way for it to get stronger is to play the game.

No PVP Gear

Did you ever spend weeks farming Honor then Conquest just so you can be at the top of Arenas or Rated BGs?  It is work.  I did this for a gear set on my Warrior back in MoP.  I tried to do it in the beginning of WoD for the Warrior transmog set.  Frankly when a game becomes work just for an aesthetic look, it no longer becomes fun.  What is fun?  Smashing face while duel-wielding a set of your favorite looking two handed swords.  Getting off the kill shot on an almost dead Horde.  Out damaging almost every other class in the BG.  Heroic Leaping to your next victim and stunning them so you can dish out some damage. Outlasting a healer class because you are so in-sync with your toon that they cannot break you.  Not today you bastard Druid!

End of rant.

Did you enjoy your time in the BG or were you too squishy because you just started farming Honor?  I really hope this changes in Legion because I do enjoy PVP for the gameplay and not the Hunt for PVP gear. Especially PVPing on my Warrior.

I really hope with Legion we get to enjoy all aspects of the game without worrying about gear.  It already is a time consuming process just to level a toon but leveling is a gated experience meant to let you enjoy content.  With the upcoming improvements now we can really enjoy the content.  I am looking forward to the next expansion.

P.S.

I really hope Engineering gets a Fel Reaver combat pet.

You will be well acquainted with this one, yes you will.

Besides the Hycainth Macaw the Disgusting Oozeling must be one of the most rarest pets.  I spent weeks farming this pet.  I remember staying up past midnight, drinking Pepsi or POG Juice, and literally falling asleep at the key board.  I dread just killing slimes over and over again.

This is the area in Swamp of Sorrows where you will be killing the slime.

You will spend days if not weeks in Swamp of Sorrows.  Swamp of Sorrows is north of Blasted Lands and south of Redridge Mountain.  You can get there via flight path to Blasted Lands.  You need to kill Shifting Mireglob for a bag. Luckily, there are a ton of slimes at your disposal and they respawn quickly.

Maevalivia looting the bag to show proof that it does exist.

The catch is that not every slime drops a Oozing Bag.  There is a 9% chance for the Shifting Mireglob to drop a bag.  The pet has a 1.5% chance of being obtained from that bag.  By the time your done, you will need new boots.  Your boots will be all soggy with swamp water, muddy, and pleasantly stink.

Maevalivia turned green in Swamp of Sorrows

The good news is you will be able to pop a green color effect at your leisure and you won’t have to be in Swamp in Sorrows to be all Green and mighty.

Maevalivia doing Love is in the Air boss with her pet.
