Your alts are sexy, and you know it. Treat them well.

By now you probably know that there are rare creatures and containers on Pandaria that carry bind on account loot, but did you know how many of these pinatas exist there are and truly how much loot you can gather up for your army of alts? I looked it up, and there are a whopping 28 known creatures and containers, each which can carry a possible list of more than 20 BOA items.

Finding these treasures also counts towards several achievements, if you care. The BoA items are primarily weapons, trinkets and medallions. Some are item level 404, good to use at level 85, but several are ilevel 450 and useable at level 86. These high level weapons will be good to tear through mobs until your alt reaches 90, making the leveling process faster and more enjoyable. My 86 rogue is rocking a 450 and 404 dagger and is always topping the dungeon damage meters.

You will also find vanity items and vendor trash, but all of them add up to be thousands of gold, so even if you don’t always find a rare BoA, it’s cash money. I highly suggest the mods TomTom and Lost Treasures. You MUST use these with your flying 90 to zip around Pandaria, loot a bunch of rare BoAs and then bestow these wonderful gifts upon your alts and write yourself a thank you card.



Episode 43: Shutdown!

It’s Sihx back with an unemployed segment. That’s right, those boneheads in our government have shuttered all operations and sent non-essential federal employees home and I happen to be one of them, that is if you consider counting fish and invertebrates underwater “non-essential.” Ok, maybe that particular job is.

Alas, I’ve been out of work for almost 2 weeks now, and you’d think I’d be playing more wow, producing more podcasts and segments, playing some golf. Nay, sadly. My wife has seized this golden unemployment opportunity to send me to the deepest darkest corners of our house for various cleaning, organization and repair projects. I must say, I’ve accomplished a lot and probably earned some temporary marriage credits, but I’m finally easing back into WoW. Specifically, I just leveled my third toon to 90 and promptly got my fat hairy panda but handed to me while trying to pick up chests in the Timeless Isle. Those elites hit hard on a toon geared at a 420 item level!

But real quick, I’d like to recommend two addons: Rare Coordinator and Tom Tom are essential for getting to rare elites before they are burned to the ground by others. Rare Coordinator will flag you when a new rare is up, then TomTom points you in that direction. It’s helped me get to rares just in time to tap them for loot! You can find them both on Curse.

Happy Shutdown!


Episode 42: Check out These Chests!

Let "Handy Notes" reveal all of the glorious chests on the Timeless Isle

Hey there, it’s Sihx back with more tips for twerking for you lootz on the Timeless Isle in patch 5.4. So, by now you’ve probably exhausted yourself with trying to find every single chest on the island. No, not that kind of chest, but the moss-covered and sturdy varieties that are sprinkled about the island.

Well, I have an addon for you that will make sure you locate every single one of these loot pinatas. Just head on over to curse.com and download two addons. First, search for Handy Notes, which is the base addon to populate your mini-map with whatever locations are imported in. Second, search for one such database of locations, and this is called HandyNotes Timeless Isle Chests. With both of these addons installed and enabled, your mini map and in game map will have the locations of every chest and will differentiate them between one-time, weekly and special chests. Furthermore, each time you open a chest, that location will be removed from your map, so you can whittle it down to the last agonizing few chests that, well, let’s be honest, you may never reach. You’ll be surprised how many chests are still in areas that you walked or rode by countless times, but this will certainly speed up the rate of chest discovery faster than a teenage boy at…(CENCSORED).
