Supposedly, for the cannon ach, if you spam jump when landing in the ring, it makes getting the bullseye easier. I haven't tried this myself, but that was a discussion in General chat yesterday.

Why not?

The best things in the game are things that have no reason for being there other than someone wanted them there. I am always surprised when there is an on-level mob in a zone I don't have to kill or rescue or interact with for a quest.


I see what you're saying, since finding stuff like that in Skyrim thrills the fuck out of me. But in WoW the same just feels pointless. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for everyone who has fun in the new DMF and stuff, and have no complaints at all that they spent time putting it it - I just have no inclination to go there and do stuff, just like most of the holiday events feel pointless. Instead, I'm going to wander around for hours in Skyrim seeing if I can climb a mountain or finding a shack full of in-game books to read.

Best spot I found for grinding trophies is the Cathedral of Darkness, north-west of ICC itself. The place where Fordring has his showdown with the Lich King at the end of the heart quest line. All the elites (only 39k hp each) on each side are linked and pull 20 at a time. By the time I killed one side (as ret) and looted the other side had respawned. Prot should be able to pull the whole place easily for 40 trophies per go.

Does anyone have any idea if the sea turtle mount is fishable in the shipwreck pools found off the coast of the island?

Check El's Anglin. If anyone knows, El would.

For the trophies, I went to the Aldru'thar (also in IC) - the mobs have 10k apiece and tend to pull in 2s or 3s and respawn FAST. They're irritating to a caster as they tend to bump back, but they die insanely fast.

Those fishing pools are pretty nice, the chests I fished up had Cataclysm herbs, potions, and elixirs in them, and a new version of the old Firewater you used to get in Winterspring.

Slow grind? I've got the first pet yesterday and will get a new one everything... thats too slow? WTF?

just fyi: every artifact you find gives you 5 - 10 Prize Tokens and there are 9 of them... do the math yourself.

That's like 500 tickets per faire, I'm really bad at maths.

Several dungeon bosses later, I'll say 10+ I got another artifact to drop, and again, I was the only roller, this was AN normal instance..

This time it sold for 1500g.. maybe they are increasing the drop rate a bit, since the prices are now half from Sunday.. LOL

Still haven't seen it drop on the new heroics..

If you really pressed to get these run dungeons with your guildmates maybe pay em a bit, or offer them to tank them for the price of the drop. LOL

Right now I'm taking gold from whoever purchased in the AH.. I could offer them at AH minus 10%, fair and square.

Almost getting 4K for my lowbie 71 for fast flying..

I've done that in most guilds, once they know the size of my nestegg, they expect handouts. :wink:

On the time required for a mount...

Done a few dailies, all the profession quests and returned already 6 artifacts (55 tickets), I'll probably farm the dungeon one I'm missing and some more pvp ones over the weekend, when I logged I was sitting at 103 tickets, so mounts are not that impossible, just looking at what is available now I've got 10 more incoming for the last dungeon, 10 potential for the raid one and 10 others for the missing pvp, means that in 10 days of dailies I could get to 180 and get my dancing bear. Not bad I'd say.


Just one question as I couldn't really understand, profession quests and artifacts are a one off or are available again at each fair? Because if it's the latter I might just go easy on the dailies and complete the mount via artifacts the next time the faire is around.
