Brewfest Kodo is mine!

After a long year wait and countless Direbrew kills the damn Kodo is mine! I managed to get the Great Brewfest Kodo on Guntitan.

I feel relieved that my hunt is over for the Kodo, but the hunt is never over my friends. Next month during Halllow’s End the Headless Horseman will return to Azeroth to haunt us. The Headless Horseman’s Mount is next!

Baby Worgen Feral Druid Leveling

Druid Leveling Guide from Restokin. Covers Feral Leveling Talent Spec, Spells & Abilities, Glyphs & Gear.

Baby Feral Druid Kitty Heirlooms

Zone (Level range)
Important Quest Chains

Gilneas City (1-5)

You are very limited and can’t leave the zone until you finish all the quests in the zone. Just grab the leather pieces with Agility and Stamina if you are leveling feral.

Gilneas (1-12)

Finish off the zone with The Battle for Gilneas City and pick up Mace of the Blood Price.

Darkshore (10-20)

Make sure you do Disturbing Connections and grab Silver Embossed Boots.  Then do The Battle for Darkshore and grab Bracers of the Ancient Grove.

Duskwood (20-25)

I still have to make my way to Duskwood.  Why not Ashemvale?  It’s now a Horde invested wasteland that’s why!  On a serious note, for alliance there isn’t enough quests there with good enough rewards.

This should get you started.  If you get lost just look at the bulletin boards in any main city, and it can put you on a quest to get you to your next zone.

Why druid?  Feral Druids, rogues, and baby hunters (up to level 40) compete for the same gear in low level dungeons.  Hunters will want leather gear up to level 40 and will follow the same questing path until then.  I figured why not?  I am having fun leveling my baby worgen feral druid kitty so much that I had to blog about it.  Keep in mind that Hunters can use the same heirlooms up to level 40.

You could use some of these pieces for you hunter like the head, shoulders and chest until level 40.  Then use the cape all the way until 85.

/// Oncebitten

I tamed Madexx.  He is one of the hardest pets to find and my last Cataclysm pet.  The stupid hyena got stuck in my trap instead of the scorpion.  I tamed it Friday morning.  In the screen shot you can see that I have both _NPCscan and SilverDragon addons.

Good night everyone!

That’s right Karoma ate Skoll.  I was on my way to CoC(Crucible of Carnage), which btw gives good experience points for pets, to help my guildies when… I found Karoma.  What karma?

_NPCscan and Silverdragon went off and I dismounted.  That’s when Karoma one shot Skoll.  I couldn’t believe it.  I thought this must  be sign.  Karoma wants me to tame him and be my new spirit beast and DPS pet.  He was red and aggressive to me on my Beast Tracking and crazy huge compared to Skoll.  Before I could tame him I had to back off a little, Feign Death, Revive Pet, Dismiss Pet, then drop the Freezing Trap, and cast Tame Pet.  I was epic fast.

Then I specced him like so…

Karoma Spec (DPS, PVE)

The spec allows your pet to get to next add after the first one dies lightning fast or get to the boss when they jump or run far away.  The spec and logic behind it is awesome sauce and I take no credit.  Thank you Frostheim.  Karoma also moves so fast that he gets to the next boss before I can manually switch targets.  How amazing is that?

Skoll used to be my DPS 5-man heroics pet and I do believe this soloing spec helps the healers with healing my pet and myself.  This spec with Spirit Mend also allowed my pet to tank 3 mobs with Growl turned on, in a heroic after the tank and 2 dps died with the healer still up.

Skoll Spec (Solo, Pet Tank)

So why did Blizzard add more spirit beasts?  ‘Cause they are more leet than most non-BM hunters think.  It is time to re-spec you MM and SV hunters and tame one.

Jadefang x3

That screen shot is my third find for Jadefang.  I was trying to show my guild mate how to get up there and Jadefang was up.  He was only level 82 so he killed it for the Tiny Shale Spider.

I tamed him my first time I found him.  Then logged out another day, just for fun, at the spot.  That night or sometime the next morning, I had a dream that I was moving Guntitan through the Crumbling Depths.  Then I saw Jadefang up on my map with Beast tracking in his spot.  In the dream I was trying to race to the spot and get up there.  I’m not sure I made it up there.

The next morning I forced myself up to log on and check.  _NPCscan and SilverDragon went off.  He was there, strangely waiting for me, just offering himself up to my Gun and blade so I can take his baby.  So wait maybe Jadefang is her?

This is the new home of Guntitan’s blog

We are still under construction. Please direct all traffic to guntitan.wordpress.com.

^ Guntitan couldn’t hold on to Time-Lost Proto-Drake’s reins and fell off while the Drake was posing.

^ The Flexweave Underlay gave out before he landed.  Yeah he died.  Took a trip to the Spirit Healer he did.

The Lesson:  TLPD gets too excited when taking pictures.  Next time bring Skoll to your next photo shoot.

Inside The Forlorn Mine _NPCscan went off while Maintaining Discipline for the White Polar Bear mount. I figured it was on the flight path circling Brunnhildar village. Time-Lost Proto-Drake flies around counter clock wise so I did too.  After seconds of not finding him I realized I might not catch up and to fly the opposite way.

Humanoid tracking was on so I had to turn on dragonkin tracking.  The beast was not on path highlighted by _NPCscan Overlay.  For whatever reason I had a hard time getting aggro flying by him.  I was scared someone else was going to come.  The stubborn dragon did not want to follow me.  When I finally got aggro, I landed near the edge of Brunnhildar village.

Right-clicked the dragon hoping my Hand-Mounted Pyro Rocket went off.  It came close enough that I started to shoot it. Pet was on passive. Turned on defensive. Killed it. Looted mount and took screen shots then got wife aggro for playing.

Edit:

I rewrote it a bit.

Guntitan is a hardcore Engineer. He can make the Iceblade Arrows and Jeeves. He just needs to make the motorcycle for himself. He also wants to finish his explorer achievement while riding the motorcycle with one of his buddies or guild mates. What’s the point of having a Engineering mount if you aren’t going to ride it? Saving about 5,000 G seems easier than saving 12,500 G and I needed to figure out a way to save that much freakin’ gold.

Mekgineer’s Chopper / Mechanohog

Gathering the non vendor mats should be easy. If you are a miner you can farm the Titanium Ore and Cobalt Ore with no problem. As a engineer use your Zapthrottle Mote Extractor to farm the gas clouds and kill the dudes in Wintergrasp. Get people from trade chat to help you make your 12 Titansteel Bars. Buy your 2 Arctic Furs from the AH.

You can purchase the vendor parts from Roxi Ramrocket. It will cost you 12,500 G.

Here are my new tips on saving gold:

  1. Find a rare and sell it. For example the Hyacinth Macaw or any of the Raptor pets. This works with the BoE epics you can find from the ICC Heroic 5 mans or from any of the 10/25 man raids. I found the Hyacinth Macaw and sold it on the AH for 6000 G. I should of tried for more but I wasn’t thinking. The AH also takes a cut so I recommend selling the rares in trade chat. From that transaction I lost about 600 G to the AH.
  2. Sell your best mats. Selling 1 Titansteel Bar a day amounts to about 130 G a day.
  3. Know how to save money on jewels or enchants for upgrades. Know where to get epic gems using badges instead of buying them off the AH for 200 G a piece. Get someone to disenchant stuff you find. Then use those mats to enchant your gear. Instead of buying Enchant Chest – Powerful Stats from the AH for 500 G ask someone to do it for you, using your mats. Don’t forget to tip them. You will save a lot of money and still be able to get the best enchants for your T9 set. Sell any extra mats on the AH.
  4. Run the Heroic daily. You get 2 Emblems of Frost and some decent amount of gold.
  5. Run the weekly raid. You get 5 Emblems of Frost, 5 Emblems of Triumph, and some decent amount of gold.
  6. Sell your best crafted items. Use the Emblems of Frost to get the Primordial Saronite you need for recipes you need to craft the next level of gear for your profession. If your guild is progressed enough you can just use the Primordial Saronite that drops from ICC instead. Craft that gear to make some money. For me it was the Plans: Iceblade Arrow. I sold 10 stacks of Iceblade Arrows a day and made about 110 G a day.
  7. Buy one vendor part at a time. This way you don’t spend your gold on something else. You could also create a bank alt and send the gold to them.
  8. What is your weekly income? Think about how much money you are making in a week instead of a day. I can make at least 500 G a day from selling stuff on the AH and running dailies. If I think of it as a weekly income that is 3,500 G in a week.
  9. Look at my old gold saving post I made for epic flying for more tips.
  10. Save more gold for other stuff. You can use these tips to save gold for the Battered Hilt or crafted level 251 gear upgrades or your Darkmoon Card: Greatness.

When you are done enjoy the engine roar of your new bike.

Aye!

I know I haven’t used that word in a long time.  My long time druid friend now a hunter friend, Ironweaver, started his own blog in his own voice and I remembered once I had a voice too.  Please visit his awesome up and coming blog at:

IRONWEAVER.WORDPRESS.COM

So far the bastard has caught all 4 spirit beasts and found the Time-Lost Proto Drake.  Even out rolled me in a couple of pugs that I invited him to on gear I would love to have.  Keep it in the guild, right?  I inspired him to start this blog and become a hunter.

When his main was his druid I remember him telling me, “You know why I love being a druid?”  I said, “No.”  He said, “You get to be your own p—y.”  Then he transformed into his running form and dashed away.

This one is for you, Ironweaver.
