WoD logoIt’s here it’s here it’s finally HEERREEEE!

There’s a ton of resources out there, so rather then write a mammoth wall-o-text, I’m going to make this as short as possible while linking all over the place so you can get as in-depth as you want.

Feral Druid Things

1. Ger the Glyph of Travel as soon as you can find it on the AH, it makes getting around so much easier. Ditto Glyph of Savagery.

2. As soon as you get the Rake perk, you’ll want to open with that from stealth, instead of Shred. Of course, if you’re in ubergear, you can skip the stealth part altogether and just demolish things, but that goes away as you level.

3. Spec SOTF for leveling, but use Incarnation for dungeons. It’s a surprisingly good talent. Force of Nature is unsurprisingly terrible.

Leveling Quickly

1. Stack some combination of Isle of Thunder/Shado-Pan/Klaxxi/Timeless Isle quests. Log in at Isle, port to Shado-Pan, hearth or fly to Klaxxi, trinket port to Timeless Isle, guild cloak port to SW, Mage tower port to Blasted Lands. If starting at 12AM, may want to only save 20-22, start questing immediately, and hearth out/back once you get garrison port.

2. Consumable up – might as well use them. Food, flask, DPS potions for rares/overpulls, etc. If going all-out, get speed (Darkwater) potions, slowfall potions for shortcuts, gems to gem gear as you get it, etc. Cracked Talisman is also very useful.

3. Buy all 3 guild battle standards. They buff XP gain from monsters and treasures by 15%/10%/5%. 10 minute CD per banner, so you should be able to drop one for most treasures you find.

4. Or, if you want, totally ignore everything in this section and level at your own speed! That’s perfectly cool too!

Waypoints to all WoD treasure chests. Treasures are very prevalent in WoD – there are 20-40 in each zone. They are like Timeless Isle treasures; they’re phased so everyone can pick them up (once). Treasures give slightly less XP then completing a quest.

Professions and Garrisons

1. You’re steered to your Garrison immediately after finishing the introductory Tanaan quests. Once you finish the intro garrison quests, you’ll have a L1 Garrison with an open small plot and a Barracks-filled large plot. After finishing the intro zone (Shadowmoon/Frostfire), you’ll unlock a L2 Garrison, which opens an extra small and medium plot. L3 isn’t available until 100 and adds an additional plot of each size, for a final total of 3 small, two medium, and two large. You’ll also pick up some extra buildings along the way that everyone gets: the mine, the herb garden, the fishing shack, and the pet menagerie.

2. Gathering professions are largely unaffected by Garrisons. Gathering is super easy in Draenor as you can gather from any node (or skin) regardless of skill, you’ll just get less from it.

3. Small building are mainly for crafting. Each crafting profession has an accompanying small building that can build most (not all) of  Each profession also has a Unique Resource (I’ll use engineering’s, Gearspring Parts, as an example) that must be generated in order to build most of the new cool things.  Stay with me here, this gets a little complicated.

  • If you have BOTH the crafting building and matching profession, you can get 16 of your Unique Crafting Resource per day; 10 from the profession, 6 from the building.
  • If you have the profession, but not the building, things are mostly the same. You only get 10 Resources per day, and you have to go to Ashran instead of your garrison to learn new recipes, but that’s it.
  • If you have just the building, you can do some things with the building, but it’s limited. You’ll only get 6 Resources per day and can spend the Resources for the base-level crafts, but won’t be able to buy the upgrades or unique items.

Other than the crafting buildings, there’s also the Storehouse for extra work orders and garrison bank access (meh) and the Salvage Yard for extra rewards from follower missions.

4. Medium buildings give you stuff. The Barn gives Savage Blood (needed for ALL epic crafts), the Inn gives you daily dungeon quests and more followers, the Lumber Mill lets you harvest Timber which turns into extra Garrison Resources, and the Trading Post lets you trade reagents for Garrison Resources (or vice versa). There’s also a PvP building in there for some reason.

5. Large buildings offer buffs. You start with a Barracks for free, which buffs your followers and lets you make certain followers bodyguards, who fight with you in the wild. There’s also the Bunker, which buffs quest rewards, can upgrade followers, and gives you free bonus rolls; the Stables, which increases mount speed and prevents being dazed; the Mage Tower, which lets you port around Draenor; and the Gearworks, which gives you a different fun toy/special ability to use every day.

6. My picks: I’ve changed my mind around a few times, but I’ve finally settled on these starting choices for my main, who is Alch/Engi.

  • Small: Salvage Yard, Enchanting, Inscription. I like the follower minigame, so Salvage Yard is a must-take. I’m not building the Alchemy building because the Alch unique resource is only used for making a trinket and super-flasks; my profession should generate more than enough mats for that. I’m swapping in the Enchanter’s building so I can disenchant quest greens. Inscription over Engineering is a tough choice; I will likely start with Inscription just to generate cards for a Darkmoon trinket, then switch it to Engineering later.
  • Medium: Trading Post, Inn. Not a PvPer, so the PvP building is out (should’ve been a building that everyone gets, really). I went back and forth on Lumber Mill or Trading Post for a long time; both will generate you Garrison Resources, but Trading Post is ultimately more flexible and doesn’t require you to go harvesting. Finally, Inn wins over the Barn because I’ll be running a lot of dungeons at 100, though my alt will have a Barn to sell the Bloods.
  • Large: Barracks, Bunker. Glyph of Travel means I’m not too concerned with the Stables, I think Engineering will give me enough toys to get around fast that I don’t need the Mage Tower, and the Gearworks looks more like a “fun for alts” thing than anything else.

Things to do at 100

1. Gear up! Questing should’ve gotten you up to around item level 610. Heroic dungeons drop ilevel 630 gear, and CM dungeons drop ilvl 640.

2. Start farming Apexis Crystals. These primarily come from a daily quest in your garrison. You need ~5000 Crystals as part of the legendary questline, and lots more can be used for gear.

  17. Thanks for the article. My spouse and i have always noticed that the majority of people are wanting to lose weight since they wish to appear slim as well as attractive. Nonetheless, they do not always realize that there are many benefits to losing weight also. Doctors declare that over weight people experience a variety of ailments that can be instantly attributed to the excess weight. Thankfully that people who definitely are overweight in addition to suffering from different diseases can reduce the severity of their own illnesses by way of losing weight. You possibly can see a slow but noticeable improvement in health when even a moderate amount of weight reduction is realized.

  18. Thanks for the something totally new you have uncovered in your blog post. One thing I’d prefer to touch upon is that FSBO associations are built with time. By launching yourself to owners the first saturday their FSBO is announced, prior to the masses start out calling on Mon, you generate a good relationship. By sending them tools, educational elements, free reviews, and forms, you become the ally. By taking a personal fascination with them along with their circumstances, you generate a solid link that, on many occasions, pays off when the owners decide to go with a realtor they know and trust — preferably you.

  35. I used to be suggested this blog by means of my cousin. I am now not sure whether this publish is written via him as no one else understand such particular about my problem. You’re incredible! Thanks!

  36. I have learn several good stuff here. Definitely price bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how much effort you place to make any such fantastic informative web site.

  37. Bonjour. Ton article est plein de bonnes infos. je voulais
    justement des informations a ce sujet. Bonne journrée

  38. Thanks for expressing your ideas with this blog. As well, a fantasy regarding the finance institutions intentions any time talking about foreclosed is that the lender will not getreceive my repayments. There is a fair bit of time which the bank will need payments from time to time. If you are far too deep inside the hole, they may commonly call that you pay the actual payment 100 %. However, i am not saying that they will not take any sort of installments at all. Should you and the loan company can be capable to work anything out, your foreclosure process may end. However, in the event you continue to skip payments in the new system, the foreclosures process can just pick up where it left off.

  39. Another thing I’ve really noticed is the fact that for many people, below-average credit is the reaction to circumstances beyond their control. Such as they may have already been saddled with an illness so they have high bills for collections. Maybe it’s due to a work loss or perhaps the inability to go to work. Sometimes divorce or separation can truly send the financial situation in an opposite direction. Many thanks for sharing your notions on this website.

  41. Thanks for expressing your ideas with this blog. In addition, a misconception regarding the financial institutions intentions while talking about foreclosure is that the lender will not getreceive my repayments. There is a fair bit of time which the bank can take payments in some places. If you are too deep within the hole, they are going to commonly desire that you pay the particular payment entirely. However, i am not saying that they will have any sort of installments at all. If you and the financial institution can seem to work something out, the actual foreclosure procedure may stop. However, in case you continue to pass up payments within the new approach, the foreclosures process can just pick up where it was left off.

  42. One thing is that one of the most popular incentives for applying your credit cards is a cash-back or rebate present. Generally, you’ll receive 1-5% back on various acquisitions. Depending on the cards, you may get 1% back again on most expenditures, and 5% back again on purchases made from convenience stores, gas stations, grocery stores and also ‘member merchants’.

  43. One thing I want to say is the fact that car insurance canceling is a feared experience so if you’re doing the correct things like a driver you may not get one. Lots of people do obtain notice that they are officially dropped by the insurance company and many have to scramble to get added insurance following a cancellation. Low-priced auto insurance rates usually are hard to get after the cancellation. Having the main reasons with regard to auto insurance cancellations can help drivers prevent sacrificing one of the most crucial privileges out there. Thanks for the ideas shared by means of your blog.

  44. You have noted very interesting details! ps decent website.

  45. Tout d’abord bonjour.! Ton site est pas mal du tout.
