WoG Brainstormz # 6 – Averse to conflict, Grayz?

“Long story short, MAC is on vacay and isn’t coming back any time soon.”
 “So if I say you I don’t mean you, I just mean you as in me as in you, Grayz.”

Raid teams, The BM Hunter is back on the raid scene, Being averse to conflict, Listening to raiding podcasts helps, Reading strategies, You play as you are, Skill over ilevel, Beginning to use World of logs

Unforseen consequences
For this episode I decided to give you a backstory to something that happened in real life that affected the editing process and which will have an affect on future episodes as well. I’ll be using my girlfriend's PC instead of my MAC and I don’t know when or even if I’ll solve it. Either way, this problem has lead to some very interesting and creative ideas. The MAC intro to this episode is a giant leap in my video editing and experimentation process.

WoG Brainstormz # 3 – I am false information

"WoW or Gold - We cook for progress."
"I'm Grayz, I am false infomation."
Cooking, Raiding, Dailies, LFR, Guild Banking, Gold Making,
Spending too much gold on Ironpaw tokens.

You hate the LFR!? You hate dailies!? Shut it!

This post was written prior to patch 5.1 release, but was published after!

So many raiders and podcasters and bloggers and forum trolls and guildies and... **********... complain about gearing up in Mists. Whether it is by grinding rep or if it's through the LFR very few players are content with the current situation. And as more raids are being released it will become even more obvious that this "problem" is related to the first months of the expansion and nothing else.

Want to know how to clear content in a WoW or Gold fashion? Reach the required ilevel to enter the raid, know everything there is to know about the encounters and choose players that fit or that can think while doing their thing, on the move, rather than the highest ilevel junkies. Finally, learn from every single wipe and have the courage to try new things, especially if your setup is different due to the lack of available classes.

There's much more walls of text after the jump and i'm really fed up with ALL of the cry babies!

Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.0 Plans part 2

Part 1 can be found here.
  1. Maybe sell all Golden Carp to buy cooking mats that i can trade with 20x meat/fish rather than 60x. This depends a 100% on the auction house prices. Today the Golden carp prices dipped and buying and trading for Ironpaw tokens was the clear cut choice.
  2. Buy the 100 Year Soy Sauce when it's up for 300g or less so that I can spend more tokens on the other cooking materials. Gold has less value than the mats I can get from the tokens, since making the gold is easier than farming due to the lack of play time.
  3. Only do dailies when I feel like regardless of faction.

    The list goes on after the jump.

WoG Brainstormz # 1 - Why a minicast, Grayz?

Hey there, people!

Fatherhood and Priorities

 "It's okay. I got this one!"

I haven't updated the WoW or Gold blog for a long time and here's post on why. The amount of ideas I have for the blog as well as other things that are WoW related are many, but the time I have on my hands is a lot less now than it was 5-8 months ago. This won't change, so it leads to one of two things; Either I prioritize the blog and my WoW profile or I go with my real life and focus on what needs to be done there. The choice is simple.

There's a lot more after the break...

Diary Post - My Plans 16th of February 2012


There's a lot of things happening both in-game and out of the game that are WoW and gaming related in general. After seeing Jim's livestream I was incredibly inspired to get my own show on the road, to say the least. What I mean by that is so much more than WoW, so let's just leave it at that. Make sure to follow him @powerwordgold on Twitter! His stream is really good, especially if you enjoy a relaxed experience with a fellow gamer.

Here's parts of my current plan. Things will change, but today i'm focusing on just putting some of my goals and ideas out there, especially since the first thing I choose to focus on will affect how much time I put into this very blog in future.

  • Move my focus from writing on this blog to recording and posting videos for Youtube. I'll put posts on the blog when I post something, but i'll spend less time writing and more time talking. It's all about learning and the endgame. I'm all about new challenges in order to keep things fresh and interesting for myself, so the best way for me to evolve is by increasing the toughness of the challenges I choose.

Diary Post - Grayz's Extreme Poseidus Strategy

I choose an ugly sea horse instead!

I wrote this the 22nd of May 2011.
The reasons that i'm posting it now are:
  1. I killed Poseidus for the second time on New years eve 2012.
  2. It shows bits of my thought process during the craziest rare hunting phase that i've been through to date.
  3. Lastly because I won't delete this post anyway.
Disclaimer! This isn't the most efficient way to farm Poseidus. But it is the strategy that I used, mainly because I was bored of WoW in general.

So let's get it on, shall we? After the break...

Add these two changes in Mists of Pandaria

Got Gear?

"Just think!" -Doseone

This is a post that i've written for Cold's Blogging Carnival. He asked for one topic, but since i'm Grayz and I follow Inspiration I chose two. Cold is the blogger behind Cold's Gold Factory and he is one of 3 hosts on the Auction House Junkies podcast. Go to his blog and show him your support and also support Auction House Junkies!

One major change that I almost forgot
A quest log that allows a whopping 200 quests. 100 dailies and 100 normal quests. I'm tired of having to plan which quests I take, not which i'll do! I don't mind planning the route, but to plan which quests to skip because im quest capped is just sad.

The two major changes that I want to see implemented
Add real BoA heirlooms that players can mail across realms and add the possibility to use BoA gold, for cross realm toons that need gold. The heirlooms should've been BoA across realms to begin with and not BoR (Bind on Realm).

Farming Poseidus - The 2nd kill (New Years Eve 2012)

  NPCscan has gone off. NPCscan overlay shows the yellow circle that's visible on the minimap.

So I couldn't sleep after New Years Eve and decided to do all kinds of shit. I ran some heroics on one hunter and then decided to go look for Poseidus for the 4th time today on my other. I flew ABOVE the water and NPCscan went off 6.32 am) and I killed her/him/it/theugly for the first time on Agamaggan, but the second time in total. How does it feel? Good. 

Read on about this lovely sea horse after the break...
