Category: Warlords of Draenor

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

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 .

Gear
Don’t waste time with Timeless Isle tokens. You are better off using them and vendor in for gold. You will need gold for your Garrison.  You will get a ton of upgrades soon.

Pets to tame before Heading to Draenor

Spirit Beast
Pandaria has easy ones to get. HutiaDeguGumi are all Porcupines.

Water Strider
You will need a Water Strider for the water walking ability.  Especially useful if you did not obtain the Anglers mount Azure Water Strider.

Direhorn
With an Ancient Tome of Dinomancy you will learn Ancient Zandalari Knowledge which allow you to tame a Direhorn.  You will need to go to the Isle of Giants and kill Zandalari Dinomancers.

Devilsaur
Since you are on the Monster Island you might as well pick one up.

Core Hound
You will need the haste buff for 5 mans.

Crane, Moth, or Quilen
The battle resurrection may proof useful.  You will encounter a level 90 Moth early on in Draenor.

Napestone Riverbeast
This is the first pet you should tame during the introduction phase of Draenor. Level 90

Notable Tame while leveling
Teroclaw at level 93
The skin looks so darn good.

While leveling tame everything…
Rylak (slow fall)
Carrion Bird
Wolf
Cat

Garrison while leveling should have a Lumbermill and a Dwarven Bunker as soon as you are able to get them.  Replace Barracks with something useful like Dwarven Bunker.

You will use the Lumbermill for the much needed Garrison supplies that you will need to build and upgrade your buildings.  Dwarven Bunker will get you double the chance of blues and purples you can get from quest rewards.

For your small plot get the enchanting one to disenchant your mats and the one for your profession. If you don’t pick Engineering shame on you.

Bags
Onyixa, OS+3, ZA, Forge of Souls, Gruul’s Lair, and few other places have easy to obtain 20-22 slot bags.  As a boosted Hunter you will have x4 Embersilk Bags.  You will need these other bags for your bank.

Professions
Engineering and Mining.  You will be able to craft your own Gun and Helm.  You will eventually get all the tinkers(sprint, shield, etc).  You will also have your own Mine that will allow you to gather mats to level Engineering. Level the mine constantly for more mining nodes and carts.  The catch up Mechanic for these professions is convenient.  You will never need to leave your Garrison to level professions and if you do it would be level your toon.

I’ll stop here… you will figure out the rest.  I know I am still am.

‘Til next time…

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…
