If you’re an altoholic like me, or you plan on leveling several toons to 100, I’ve got a few tips for you that can make your overall leveling process faster, and  a way to manufacture more materials and gear for all of your toons.

If you have several toons at level 90 gathering dust, may I suggest leveling each one of them until they establish their garrison. Typically, this takes only an hour or so to do, but once that garrison is built, resources start accumulating at about 500 every 3 ½ days. Now, you can simply log in every 3 days to collect your resources, and when you’re ready to take that toon to 100, you’ll be swimming in resources which will enable you to send more followers on missions, construct buildings faster, and even buy that 20% experience buff potion from your garrison innkeeper to save hours of leveling.

If you have an extra hour or two to spend with each alt that has established their garrison, may I recommend that you select a crafting profession and complete that initial questline in frostfire ridge to get the level 1 blueprint. Now, you can build your tailoring emporium, forge, or whatever you need mats for. My level 91 warlock has already created enough hexweave cloth for a level 640 chest, and I plan on creating the legs and helm to wear to make his eventual leveling process even faster. My lock also has 4 followers, all at level 100. Often the player experience quests come up, and I’ve gained almost a full level on my lock by just completing those missions with the experience potion buff active.

Epic Diapers #58 – Addons From Satan Himself

MY LEVEL OF OCD HAS QUADRUPLED!

MY LEVEL OF OCD HAS QUADRUPLED!

Hey everybody, it’s Sihx, back with another load of Epic Diapers. Alright, so we all have a problem. We can’t quit it. It consumes almost every hour of every day. But, the first step to a clear concious is admitting the addiction. We obsess over garrison missions. We need to find out if that mission with a 76% chance to get a level 630 weapon was successful, or how many crates of salvage are back, or if that blue level 100 follower turned purple yet.

Well, there are tools out there to feed your addiction, feed that burning desire to send more followers out, yet still have enough resources to upgrade your salvage yard to level 3. They are addons. The first is “Garrison Mission Manager,” and these programming devils have made assigning missions so much easier. Each mission also has three choices of teams that you can send on their happy way to balance out your follower talents and make sure you have as many successful missions go out as you can.

The next soulless addon is called “Master Plan.” With this tool of you can sort missions by chance of success, level, or rewards. The garrison missions window is also split into separate available or active tabs so you can see which teams are out in Draenor trying to make the boss (that’s you) happy.

So, even though these addons make your garrison mission managing more efficient and hypothetically save you time, it won’t because you’ll be doing so many more missions that your level of OCD will increase exponentially.

You’re welcome!

Episode 44: Warlords of Efficiency

14 Nov

“You’re gonna make me go do WHAT?!”

Click below for the audio segment:

Many of you out there still have the post-Blizzcon Blues, and unfortunately, I am living with the regret of not going myself, but when you have a family and both spouses work, well, it just doesn’t work out sometimes.

The new expansion to WoW, “Warlords of Draenor”, was announced of course, and I’m quite excited about some of the efficiency and flexibility they are adding to the game, especially for those of us who don’t have much time.

I’m particularly excited about Garrisons, which will give you access to followers, as your garrison grows over 3 tiers. These followers will be able to go on missions to get you epic gear and materials, along with your expanded farm creating more materials.

You get a free 90, and you get a free 90, and everyone who buys the expansion gets a free 90! I’d hold off on leveling your lowest alt and wait for the expansion to boost said alt, or even a new level 1 to 90. I wish they’d add a 12th character slot, since my best boost would only be from level 81. Blizzard also hinted that they may offer additional level 90 boosts for purchase. The reason that they should do this is because some players there will just purchase additional expansions for more than one account, then transfer boosted 90s over to their main account. Might as well make it more efficient.

More bag space! Blizzard will be increasing stack sizes of many mats to 100, and putting tabards, quest items, heirlooms, toys and tabards into a collection, saving dozens of bag slots. You’ll also be able to craft from items in your bank! So, you can dump many mats in your bank and craft from them anywhere in the world.

Remember, you can also hear my segments on The Instance, Rawrcast, The AIE Podcast and Convert to Raid.
