Severed Ties

It’s been a while since I tried to do a dungeon achievement but with three left for Cataclysm, this was one I was missing. When Arv asked if I wanted to do a dungeon earlier I didn’t even know achievements were on the agenda. We ended up doing Well of Eternity and End Time, although there was a bit of a hiccup at the second crystal as no one clicked the first one and poor Illidan was left twiddling his thumbs for a while....

Making History

I must say that we haven’t had a Guild achievement for a while but this one was a nice surprise. When I logged in after the Patch on Wednesday, I noticed that amongst the personal and account achievements I received, there was this one. It’s not so much that we have the achievement but just look how far we are over the quota? :P I love Archaeology, but all the professions in Pandaria are all kind of fun, especially when...

Boo-Boo Number Two

Ok well, I guess it’s not good to feel too cocky when going into a low level dungeon. After yesterday’s fiasco, I wasn’t even going to mention the Reinforced Targets in Scarlet Halls except that Cool make a passing remark about them which made me play coy. When we got to Houndmaster Braun I decided to go ahead and clear the path while Cool went ahead and finished the boss. Only about a second after I ran to the wall...

Old Hillpaw

I must be on a roll. This is the second NPC that I’ve managed to get exalted with for The Tillers. When I saw that Old Hillpaw gives you a Straw Hat as one of the perks, I knew which NPC I had to work on next as it’s the perfect addition to my farming outfit. Actually, I didn’t have one before the hat but it’s funny how things work out. :P Being the beta, I had chucked a lot of the gear in my bags for room so I...

Sho

Sho is one of ten NPCs which are part of The Tillers – the farming faction of Pandaria. If you choose to become her Best Friend (which is the highest level of friendship or reputaion), you will get a couple of perks. Wait a minute. I’ve been thinking… you’ve done so much for me, it’s about time I gave you something back in return. Where I’m from, we grow beautiful orange trees. I planted one on your...

Pet Battle Families

Here you can see which pet families are strong and weak against other pet families, as well as the passive bonuses for each family type. For example, Aquatics receive a 50% damage increase (base dmg x1.5) against Elementals while suffering a 33% damage penalty (base dmg x0.66) against Magic pets. Some will have abilities which don’t fall under the family group, such as a Humanoid with Flying or Magic abilities. In some cases, a...

The Tillers

If you’re interested in farming in Pandaria, you can get things started with The Tillers at 85-86 (depending on how fast you want to start farming crops) by visiting Farmer Yoon at Halfhill. He will essentially teach you everything you need to know about it, including any problems you encounter. You’ll start by clearing rocks off his ranch and then growing various crops. Once you finish the initial questline though,...
