What? o.O I thought red gems had to go in red sockets... otherwise what's the point of the colours?!?!?!?

Items which you can sock tend to have a gem set bonus. To get the bonus you need to place the correct coloured gems in the correct sockets. You usually get some extra +sta or +str.

That make sense, I thought the sockets HAD to match up with the gems to work. :lol:

 

 

 

Just bought myself some nice shoulders =D, need 7 more Emblems of Heroism for a decent waist item while is the last green I have (other than a trinket). Then just need a decent 1 handed weapon and another 25 emblems of heroism to get the off-hand thing and I think I should just about be ready for at least OS lol.

If there's a bonus right underneath the socket like

 

+8 Attack Power

 

 

 

then you need to match the gem with the socket. But usually, the socket bonus is always never worth it. Being a mage, I'd stack spell power. I'm a SV hunter so I stack agility

 

 

 

you always want to gem to improve your DPS.

also you know about hit rating?

 

 

 

and if you can't find it in the AH, you can always grab the mats and get someone to make it for you for a tip. ask people to "link" their tailoring/blacksmithing to see what they can make.

Done a bit more today, got an epic wand from AN heroc and that's it (only run 3 heroics so far today). Switched to Arcane spec which is helping me lot (2.5k+ DPS now for bosses and 2k average). Made some Black Duskweave trousers, bought a mantle of runecasting I think it's called and then got an epic sash for 40 emblems.

 

 

 

Then I did OS10, 3rd highest DPS. Crap loot from the boss however so I got nothing :(

 

 

 

Might try running a few more HCs before bed and see if I can get anything else.

Although it's not working for me atm.

 

 

 

Probably going to try OS25 tomorrow to get some more gear and run a few more HCs, then might try and get in a Naxx 10 group.

 

 

 

Edit: Ran GunDrak and got a level 200 robe.

 

 

 

Then went to VoA25, missed out on Tier 7 legs :(

 

 

 

Why can't I roll :(

Just dinged 30 on my Mage. Got my mount, I love it ::' . Shame the human mount is so lame. I mean, a horse, wtf. Almost done with Duskwood, going to clear wetlands after that. Any ideas on where to level after that?

 

 

 

EDIT: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#oZZAc0hccz This is my build, where to go from here on?

 

 

 

You should have gone for something more like... http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#oZZA0ccofz

 

Here's what you should be aiming for at 40: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#oZZAccIofz0cz

 

And by 50: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#oZZAccIofz0czgbo

 

And 60: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#oZZAccIofz0czgfsu

 

70: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#oZZAIcIofu0fzgfst

 

 

 

Then pick up Shattered Barrier and Imp. Blizzard and 70-80 will go very fast.

oh ok. well in that case emalon drops t8.5 gear. archavon drops t7.5

 

 

 

Really? Thought It was only tier 7/8

 

 

 

Anyway, done OS25 today, rolled 95 on a dragon hide bag and got that. Then immediately rolled 95 on tier 7.5 gloves after too. Mwuhahaha, so far I have a 100% win record today =P

 

 

 

It's annoying trying to find a pug group for Naxx, they're all saying that you need the achievement for beating it already plus the epic achievement... which is especially stupid for naxx10 which doesn't even give 213 items >_<

3.1.3 atm i think.

 

 

 

@darkdude

 

 

 

Tier loots can be kind of confusing with their suffixes. Generally if it has .5 on the end it comes from the 25man version and if it doesnt it's from 10 man. So t7 would be 10-man naxx and t7.5 is 25 man naxx. Vault is a bit different because there's 2 tier levels in one instance, so 10-man archavon drops t7 and 10-man emalon drops t8. 25-man archavon drops t7.5 and 25-man emalon drops t8.5.

Ramps is fast if the trash is grey to you. I solo heroic ramps sometimes on my warrior when i'm bored and you can skip the whole first corridor thing of trash.

Downloaded Jame's Alliance leveling guide Addon. It's awsome, everyone who is still using QuestHelper should ditch it and use this instead. It tells you which part of a quest you should do and gives you the fastest path (which is always the same, not like QH which randomizes and often gives really crappy quest paths).

Plus I think the whole teenage girl thing will end soon (hopefully), because my girlfriend is absolutely in love with him(she is 18), and im beginning to feel threatened by his [Justin Bieber] dashing looks.

Decent evening, got Black War Bear for "For The Horde!" then did Gundrak finally getting level 200 boots, then did VH getting epic bracers, then upgraded my necklace by spending 25 emblems on one =P

 

 

 

Really want to get into Naxx10 this week so I can upgrade a lot of the gear then perhaps do Naxx25 as well.

Meh it dosen't exactlly make the leveling experience fun though and you don't really meet new people. Thats the key to end game stuff, getting a group of friends while leveling and then just start raiding and stuff with them.

 

 

 

I don't hate the guides but its a very linear way to play a MMORPG

 

Not really. I used a guide all the way to 78 and I didn't have any trouble meeting people. If anything you'll meet more people when you get to 80 anyway

I'm in a leveling guild atm, lots of people around my level there ::' . And the guide lets you travel all over Azeroth. When I'm questing in an area I used to have the problem of not having any quests for my level, only 2+ levels above me... And that's not fun. Not a problem if you're a paladin but my mage has a lot more trouble handling several mobs 2-3 levels higher than me. And questing in WoW is not that fun imo, kill X of that times a thousand is basically what the questing is.

Finally get into a Naxx10 group about 1/4 way through.

 

 

 

Did the 4 horsemen and had most DPS and got the staff.

 

 

 

Then went to the arachnid quarter, first boss there, do most DPS there too.

 

 

 

So they kick me from the group =/

 

 

 

Pissed me off so much as now I'm going to have to wait until next week to run it again when I'm obviously geared for it. Hopefully can get into Naxx25 this/next week too.

lol wow why would they kick you out?

 

 

 

i just figured out the best way (for me) to earn gold. i can kill all the bosses in steamvault in under 20 mins while avoiding all the adds (I kill almost none). I get 4 of http://www.wowhead.com/?item=22449 per run.

 

 

 

I have no idea =/
