I rolled need on the Hydrocane while leveling my Fury Warrior. It is one of the earliest items you may obtain that will allow under water breathing. You can equip one 2H and this item as a Fury Warrior. You can swap out the cane for a weapon to reset your breathing.  You can also explore underwater areas without worry.  This is a must have item for any leveling class that is not a Warlock.  You can use it as long as you can equip a staff.  Good luck!

Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while. I managed to get the Headless Horseman’s Mount this year, twice.

I did not get the helm on my only plate class, my DK, but got the helm on others.

I started to level a warrior. She is going to be a Herbalist/Alchemist.

I am thinking my next blog post will be about a Bank Alt. There are a ton of guides but they are so out of date. Ever since I started to actually use my bank alt solely for banking and auctioneering my gold income has sky rocketed. This was before Hallow’s End but I almost have enough Gold to make my first Engineering rocket.

‘Til next time…

My rogue hit level 85 the other night and she wasn’t at the right item level to que up for the Mist of Pandaria dungeons. Sound familiar?

It was time go get them BOEs. Some of the ones I obtained at level 80 were still on my toon. I really didn’t replace gear until I hit level 84 and started to quest in Twilight Highlands.

The quest rewards from Twilight Highlands are no where near the item level required to play in the Mists.

The BOE armor was too expensive on the AH(200+G). I logged on to my leather working Druid and looked at what I could craft, which was almost every slot.  My Druid did have a ton of mats so I crafted a Misthide set and a Cloak of the Mists.

The Cloak stats are random so I actually don’t recommend crafting it. They do sell well on the AH, if you don’t mind farming the mats and taking a gamble. I crafted about 9 of them until I got the one I could use.

I was still short 1 point so I ended up buying a BOE necklace, Shadowfire Necklace of the Galeburst. Then headed through the mists. When I did que up the quest rewards from Jade Temple replaced my legs and bracers. I made the gear to que, don’t expect the gear to last you long.

While leveling my rogue I instinctively placed a Gnomish Army Knife in her bag. At the time I was going to make her a herbalist/alchemist.

I later decided to make her a Blacksmith/Engineer. Boy did the Gnomish Army Knife come in handy.

Besides having a nose picker, back scratcher, and whirly thing. The knife carried my necessary tools to level Engineering and Blacksmithing. I did not have to buy or create any of the following: Gyromatic Micro-Adjuster, Arclight Spanner, and Blacksmithing Hammer.

It also saved me the much needed bag space so I could hold the mats I needed to craft my junk.

This is a must have item for any alt who may be leveling a Blacksmith, Engineer, Skinner, Herbalist, or Miner.

It even acts as a Jeweler’s Kit for the leveling Jewelcrafter.

If you don’t have one, go get one now.

#xperiaion Micro blogging ftw.

I’ve been leveling a rogue with the same heirlooms(plus Stained Shadowcraft Pants) I used for Scythebitten(my feral druid) and just recently hit 80. The exception are the heirloom daggers. This means that when I hit 80, I had a few 174s and my item level wasn’t sufficient enough to run through the Cataclysm dungeons.

Quick Tip:

Obtain the BOEs

Drops

If you are leveling with the heirloom daggers Sharpened Scarlet Kris and Balanced Heartseeker you can easily upgrade them with the regular version of the Toxidunk Dagger which you can obtain from Blackrock Caverns. You could try to get them with your Main or buy them off the AH. I purchased a pair for about 250 G.

Crafted

Then you could always check the AH for Darkbrand gear to replace your belt and bracers. Then pick up the chest and shoulders to replace your Stained Shadowcraft Tunic and Stained Shadowcraft Spaulders. A pair of Darkbrand Gloves and a pair of Darkbrand Boots will help with item level too. If you already have a leather worker and a miner like me. Then it shouldn’t take long to farm the mats and craft a pair for your Rogue alt. The Volatile Fire for the gloves can still be fished.

After a few quests in Mount Hyjal. I had the right item level to que for the first set of Cataclysm dungeons.

So why a post about my Rogue?

These same tips can be applied to your leveling Feral Druid, Monk, or even your Hunter alt.
