WoG Brainstormz # 33 - Please Quit Playing, Floppers!

No! Don't expect me to rehash old news like most other content creators. So this isn't an episode you waited for just to hear extremely old news as if they're new and no one else had spoken about them. 

Blizzcon 2016 having the most interesting announcement since they announced Wrath, 7.1.5 stats Blizzard Blizifying solutions that should be simple to pick and choose, bans and exploits, RnGendaries (legendaries), players that should've quit WoW podcasting a long time ago because they're bored of the game.

And most importantly a guest appearance by my daughter, Stormwinds, to end the madness!

Grayz Herb Farm - Foxflower (Triple Boxing)



The Starlight Rose grind was over once and for all. I could switch professions and still have rank 3 available if I ever needed to herb Starlights again. Next on my list was Foxflower. I was going to rank it up from rank 1 to 3 in no time. I was ready. Then I saw prices of Starlight Rose both rise and fall on my realm and I thought "if I ever have to choose another herb to farm, which one would it be and why?". The price of herbs is one factor, but to me there was another, more important factor. The value found in the sheer amount of herbs I could get as fast as possible.

Grayz Herb Farm - Starlight Rose Rank 3






A couple of weeks into Legion I felt really bad about not reaching rank 3 on all of the very profitable and easily farmable mats that didn't require a raid to complete the rank 3 quest. I had Herbalism and Skinning on my main at the time. And not reaching rank 3 hurt my ego, especially when it came to the more valuable goods, so I turned around and aimed to change it. Here's how.

Everyones farming Starlight Rose now. All for dat gold, baby! And I came up with another strategy to counter that exact herbalistic problem, but that's for another post.

What I did to prepare for my Herb rankin'
  • I used Server hop (and Cross realm assist) so I could switch quickly to realms with Starlight Roses nodes available.
  • Tomtom to create and use others waypoints. I've added one in this post for the last part of the Rank 3 quest chain.
  • Sky Golem was my mount of choice so I could herb while mounted. From what i've heard you can use the this too, but I don't have it. 
  • Stonehide Leather Barding so I wouldn't get dismounted when mobs hit on me.
  • Leystone Hoofplates to run 20% faster on my mount.   
  • And various damage buffs, so that I could kill mobs faster when needed.
  • If you have quested enough in Suramar to unlock them, grab all of the buffs from the 3 mana addicts found in Shal'aran. 
My process of farming Starlight Rose to rank up
  1. Fly to or run to Irongrove Retreat in Suramar. 
  2. Head towards the western part of the white curve.


    This short route has the highest amount of active nodes available and when combined with server hopping is the fastest way that i've found to farm Starlight non stop. Unless there's many other players farming there's nodes available every 15-60s. It's faster when empty, slower when crowded, but even when it's crowded it's still a solid route simply because it's so short and you can hop through a ton of realms and get to the nodes faster than the competition that use this entire route from wow-professions.

    You can extend the route if you find that works better for you, but i'd follow the flow of the herbs rather than just following any set route like a mindless bot.

  3. Farm Starlight Roses for as many hours as you need. Make sure to keep 20 Starlight Rosedust! A node will eventually give you the quest Insane Ramblings. Hearth to Dalaran. Turn it in.

  4. Accept Tharillon's Fall. Fly to Azsuna and run to /way 56, 26 Tharillon's Fall. Now use the 20 Starlight Rosedusts to summon Tharillon. You should be able to solo him. If not find someone to help you.



    That's it! Congratulations at finally ranking up.
    Starlight Rose is probably the single most anti climatic herb to level to rank 3, since the only thing it does is this, but now at least this specific rng grind is over for you.

Anything that helps speed this process up will save you a lot of time and earn you a lot more gold overall. Especially if you end up needing to farm for 6h++ hours due to rng. This took me around 4-5h total and I tweaked my strategy as I went. And this post was the fastest way that I found for my own needs (dat gold and saving time, bruv). It's funny how I stopped farming Starlight Rose actively as soon as I got rank 3. Guess it comes down to having fun too? Another farming strategy that I came up with after this entertained me even more. Did it yield more gold? Probably not or maybe it did? Does it really matter? 

Enjoy Legion! Avoid the time sinks!







The Fishing Artifact - How I Farmed Artifact Points in Suramar



I'm trying a format that's structured as a guide in this post. Farming this way saved me a ton of time so I thought i'd share it and maybe help someone else. Also, if you don't enjoy fishing for whatever reason, don't read, just stay away!

WoG Brainstormz # 32 vs Clash for Gold # 6 - Blizzard vs Supercell: Dawn of Justice

"CoC has died". Again.
"WoW has died". Again.
Blizzard (WoW), Supercell (CoC), organizational changes in companie and my analysis from the outside looking in.
Annoying fairplay fundamentalists (yeah, I go there)
Sticking to my own joy filled path, outside of communities, in the scorched CoC land of FPC, modders, quitters, haters and schizos that lova and hate the CoC.
Sweden's co-dependancy system (Jantelagen).
Thooorin's Alpha Draft commercial impersonation goes to hell. Get dat sick scrilla on his Youtube.
Hashtag #keepcalmimright because I can.

WoG Brainstormz # 31 - Why are You Making Content?

Some thoughts about Necroxis's discussion. Good luck, man!
I love bringing back the oldschool feel to this one with the new PoV on what the internet thinks. "I don't care!" -Tommy Lee Jones. Ahaha.
I want to record Clash for Gold but too busy, so recording a quick Brainstormz episode instead.
Blizzard 2.0's gameplay @ all games is lacking and the Lore division has been destroyed entirely.
Legion trailer or teaser not inspiring me the least.
The sad state of so called "WoW podcasts" that were created "for the community".

WoG Brainstormz - Update # 2

THE NEW RSS FEED FOR THIS SHOW IS http://wogbrainstormz.libsyn.com/rss

I'll record new episodes when we get closer to Legion launch. Will prolly be alot more hardcore in the planning stage this time around than I was in WoD. It's all about the progression.

Playing Clash of Clans at a hardcore clan war level cause it's alot less of a time sink than WoW.

Phase 5 has begun with ideas from this show eventually going to be used over @ my new podcast. The Clash for Gold podcast. http://clashforgold.libsyn.com/rss

WoG Brainstormz # 17 – Don’t listen, period


The old rss feed is dead. New rss feed can be found here http://wogbrainstormz.libsyn.com/rss
So all links from the old post are dead. When new episodes are uploaded they'll be linked to the new rss feed.
 

Notice: This episode is made like an audio stream. What I mean by that is that I’m playing during the entire recording, so be warned, if you hate mouseclicks/random background noises (kids talking/waking up) don’t listen, period. This is practice for larger goals, so take it for what it is. I’ve not played and used voice chat at the same time often enough, so this is a way for me to practice doing it. 

Alts that I’m playing, my Tillers team, how I run scenarios, plans on making work related podcasts, connecting what I learn across WoW, teaching and acting and random commentary @ the things happening in-game.

Why don’t you ask for iTunes reviews, try to involve the community or do other generic things, Grayz? Northern Barrens commanders, all Dreadful plate (PvP gear) crafted by a guildie, tanking plans with my Druid and DK, running scenarios for gear vs dungeons.

WoG Brainstormz # 21 – Why play in a guild? Seriously

Running scenarios as a tank, enjoying many classes and speccs in Mists, Guilds - what is their purpose? What has happened to the teamwork within social guilds? BC difficulties and why “back then” isn’t coming back, connecting gaming and the school system, being with leaders or followers and why I prefer surrounding myself with leaders, raid leading by example and why it’s so important to be a role model for the team, a recurring problem in all of my adventures where my skill leads to exclusion and difficulties in finding likeminded people
