How to get review copies to play on your Twitch stream (Streaming)

If you are streaming you can actually request review copies of a game to play it on stream. How many followers and subscribers you have does not really matter as much as people think, and streamers with as low as 100 followers gets keys most of the time. However, more followers means a bigger audience, and increases your chances to get a key.

Some game devs give away keys to all the people that ask, while others has a set limit, so if you don't get a key on your first try, don't be afraid to contact other developers.

Before you begin you need to have a streaming related e-mail address that is verifiable on your Twitch account and on social media. This will let the game devs know that you are not a key scammer without too much trouble. Also try to make sure your social media and stream is somewhat professional looking before sending e-mails and ask for keys.

Once you are ready, find the correct e-mail to the developer or publisher you want a key from. Look for an e-mail that is related to "Press", "PR" or "Media" or something related to that, and if you cannot find one, use the contact form on their website, or just use the general contact e-mail.

Now it's time to send the e-mail. Make sure to include the following:

- A friendly greeting.
- You real name and your Twitch name.
- Links to your stream, Youtube and social media.
- What game you want, and what system you want it for.
- A few sentences about why you want to stream the game. Tell them about similar games you have streamed etc. Don't make it too long!
- A thank for your looking at your e-mail.

Now send it, and make sure it's not too long, because most devs would rater spend their time doing other things than reading e-mails.

After this, it's waiting time. Just cross your fingers, and don't be afraid to try again once your stream grows if you get a negative reply.

How to increase happiness the easiest way (Pokémon Sun/Moon)

Raising happiness in Pokémon Sun / Moon is a pretty annoying task for a lot of people, but there is a nice trick that will make it happen very fast and easy. With this method you can evolve Munchlax or Pichu very easy.

What you need to do is buy a lot of TMs for the Pokémon you want to raise happiness with. Buy lots of two different moves, such as 50x Move1 and 50x Move2. Now teach this to the Pokémon, and use these two to juggle between the two moves. Each time you teach it a new move the happiness will increase. So teach it Move1, then replace it with Move 2, replace this with Move1 again, and keep doing this for 10-15 minutes to get enough happiness to get it to evolve. Note that you need to also level it up once you reach the desired happiness before it will evolve.

How to transfer the Ash-Greninja to the full game (Pokémon Sun/Moon)

Before the release of the full version of Pokémon Sun and Moon, players could download a demo to get used to the new interface and mechanics in the game, and this also awarded the participants with a special Greninja that can turn into an Ash-Greninja upon knocking out one Pokémon. This form increases its stats and makes the move Water Shuriken more powerful.


To get it, you need to have the demo downloaded, as well as a physical or digital version of either Sun or Moon. Once you have it, boot up the demo from the 3DS and speak with professor Kukui. His dialogue options include "Bring to full version". Now you can send any special items you found, and the Greninja to the full version of the game. Now you can exit the demo and start the retail game. Make sure you have an open slot on your team, and head to the nearest Pokémon Center and talk with the man in the yellow and blue shirt near the desk. Accept his Mystery Gift, and you will receive the special Greninja from the demo.

How to use QR codes to locate Pokémon (Pokémon Sun/Moon)

There is a QR scanner available in the Pokémon Sun and Moon games, which allow you to scan these and add the Pokémons to your Pokédex. You will not fully unlock it, but scanning them will show you where you can capture them.

As an added bonus, once you scan 10 QR codes, a special Pokémon will appear somewhere close to where you are playing. These special Pokémon can be caught and used just like any other, and includes starter Pokémon from previous games, and another cool Pokémon that cannot be obtained any other way.

 To get the QR codes you can scan it from a friend's game, or do it the easy way; just follow this link to an image gallery with every single Pokémon QR code available! Now just open the QR code scanner in-game and start scanning right away.

How to get Cosmog (Pokémon Sun/Moon)

Cosmog is one of the new Legendary Pokémons in Sun and Moon, and he will eventually evolve into the Pokémon on the front cover of the game box (Sungaleo / Lunala). He is pretty easy to obtain, and you need to do the following:

1) Complete the main story in the game. This includes becoming the Champion.
2) Head to Altar of the Moone if you play Pokémon Sun or Altar of the Sunne if you play Pokémon Moon. Enter the portal in this area.
3) Go over to Lake of the Moone/Sunne, and walk to the top and onto the platform.
4) This will trigger a small cutscene, and you will add Cosmog to your party/Pokébox.  The new Cosmog will be level 5.

Cosmog will evolve into Cosmoem for both games by leveling, and eventually into Sungaleo or Lunala.

Starter Pokémon guide; which to pick (Pokémon Sun/Moon)

When starting a new game, you need to pick a starter Pokémon, and which one you pick will affect the rest of your game in some way. Most people will just go for their favorite, and you should, but in this guide we will talk a little but about the pros and cons for each starter Pokémon, so you can decide which you want to have by your side.

So, the above Pokémon are your options. Here's a short summary of each:

Rowlet is the little bowtie-owl, and is a grass/flying Pokémon. It evolves into Dartrix at level 17, and Decidueye at level 34. Decidueye is pretty well-rounded at higher levels, and has some cool moves such as one that prevents opponents from fleeing. This makes it great for capturing new Pokémon, and a great pick for casual gamers. He is not all that good at competitive play.

Litten is a Fire Cat Pokémon that is a fire type. It evolves to Torracat at level 17, and finally Incineroar at level 34. Incineroar is a very good choice, and is the best competetive pick of all the starter Pokémons. He has a large health pool, and a good attack stat.

The final starter Pokémon is Popplio, the sea lion. He is a water type, and evolves to Bironne at level 17 and Primarina at level 34. Primarina is an overall good Pokémon that is a safe pick, but lacks the competitive high-level part in its arsenal.

All three are overall good picks for playing casually, and will do nice against the gym bosses, but if you are one of the people who are looking to beat strangers in Pokébattles over the internet, you should go for Litten.

How to update Legendary item ilvl (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Legendary items in Legion had their ilvl upgraded from 895 to 910 in the last small patch, but a lot of players don't see this reflected in their client. However, it is stored on server side, so the Legendary stats will be ilvl 910 no matter what your client shows you, so this is just a cosmetic problem.

Anyway, it's easy to fix this, and all you need to do is to go to your WoW install forlder and locate a folder named Cache. Just delete this, and the problem will be fixed!

How to fix FPS drops (Dishonored 2)

The PC version of Dishonored 2 seems to have a lot of problems, including FPS drops, various bugs, FPS linked mouse speed and more. However, in this guide we will teach you how to fix the FPS drops you might have experience while playing. This guide will likely get right under 60 FPS, so it should definitely be playable, but only a patch can fix it to work even better than this.

Optimizing the performance for Dishonored 2

Start of by fixing the general performance of the game to get started in fixing the FPS drops. The Texture Quality, RXAA and View Distance seems to have a way to heavy importance on the performance of the game, so we suggest that you start by lowering one, two or all of these and see if the game improves the performance.

Lower the amount of pre-rendered frames

Dishonored 2 have way too many pre-rendered frames, and lowering the amount of these will dramatically improve the performance. This is done from your graphic card setting, not in the game itself, so exit the game and do the following:

For NVIDIA: Open NVIDIA Control Panel, go to Mange 3D Setting, go to Program Setting and Select Dishonored 2. Here you select either 1 or 2 for the value of "Maximum pre-rendered frames", and the game will improve.

For AMD: You need to download a program called RadeonPro to manually alter the pre-rendered frames setting. Click on the link above to download the program, and find the pre-rendered frames setting from the program. Set the value to either 1 or 2.
RadeonPro is free to download and use, and is very useful to optimize the game performance for any game.

Fix Mouse Smoothing

Dishonored 2 completely lacks any default mouse smoothing, which means that turning around int he game will dip the FPS dramatically, so you definitely want to fix this. It's not possible to fix from inside the game, because the settings lacks this option for some strange reason. It is however possible in the config-files, so close the game, and locate your save file. It should be somewhere like this:

\Saved Games\Arkane Studios\dishonored2\base\dishonored2Config.cfg

Open this in notepad or another good text editor (I do not recommend using Word or anything "heavy" like that), and use the search function to find the value "g_mousesmooth". The original value will be 1, but chance this to 0. This will fix the problem. Now save the text file, and right click on it. Click on the box that says "Read only", because if you don't do this, the game will overwrite the setting when you start the game again, and it won't work.

Fix low priority settings

Without manually changing it, Dishonored 2 will be automatically set to be on low CPU priority, so it will not run good at all. Fix this by opening Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del) and go to Processes. Locate Dishonored 2 and right click to chance priority to high.

Fix Render Scale / Adaptive Resolution

This is the last fix for now, and this is most likely cause by a bug, so if you don't want to wait for a patch to fix your FPS issues, keep reading. The Render Scale makes the FPS drop very low, and this is the most important setting to fix. Open the game and go to Settings. Change Render Scale / Adaptive Resolution from the default 75 to 100. This will stop the game from constantly trying to rescale your game to fit your monitor, and instead use the default monitor resolution.

If you are using a slow, old computer, this last fix might actually make it worse, because this setting is intended for low-end computers to use for playing smoothly. However, it causes problems for good computers, so set it to 100 if you are on a decent computer.

How to get Defiled Reins / Grove Defiler (World of Warcraft: Legion)

The Defiled Reins awards the user with the Grove Defiler moose mount, and in order to get this you need to complete the Glory of the Legion Raider achievement. This is a meta-achievement in which you have to complete a total of 19 raid achievements with your raid group. The achievements require a certain strategy to complete, and is spread across The Nighthold and The Emerald Nightmare raids.

This means that you need a skilled group of players to defeat the raid bosses in a certain way. The achievements can only be gotten on normal difficulty or higher, so you cannot complete these in the LFR.

One you manage to complete every single achievement, you will be awarded the meta-achievement, and the Defiled Reins will be in your mail box!

How to farm Giant Dinosaur Bones for Reins of the Bone-White Primal Raptor (World of Warcraft: Legion)

The Reins of the Bone-White Primal Raptor awards a while raptor mount for all races, and can be bought for 9,999 x Giant Dinosaur Bone. The mount itself is bought from a zombie troll called Ku'ma, located in a small cave on Isle of Giants.

The Isle of Giants is also where you are going to farm the Giant Dinosaur Bones. All dinosaurs and Troll Dinomancers there drops these bones, and at level 110 all of the mobs are extremely easy to solo.

The best way to farm this mount is simply to head to Isle of Giants and kill as many dinosaurs as possible. At level 110 you should be able to farm it in a few hours, but it might take longer if there are many people there that are farming the dinosaurs along with you. Note that you can do damage to an already tapped mob to get your personal loot from it, so you can farm it alongside other people. 

The following enemies drop bones: (The number in the bracket is the amount of bones they drop)
- Zandari Dinomancer (1-2)
- Primal Direhorn Hatchling (7-9)
- Primal Direhorn (18-22)
- Pterrowing Skyscreamer (15-17)
- Young Primal Devilsaur (11-13)
- Primal Devilsaur (35-45)

You want to focus on killing the large mobs first, and do the smaller ones if they are nearby. It's a good strategy to pull the big dinosaurs while aoeing down the smaller ones next to it.

How to stop getting XP (World of Warcraft: Legion)

If you don't want to get any more experience points and stop leveling up, it's actually possible to freeze your level bu heading to Stormwind or Orgrimmar. There are NPCs there which will let you turn off experience point gains by paying 10g. This makes it possible to experience old content at the correct level, and not having to worry about outleveling anything.

For Alliance, the NPC is called Behsten and is located in Stormwind Keep.

For Horde, the NPC is called Slahtz and is located in The Valley of Honor.

If you want to gain XP again, talk to the same NPCs and pay another 10g to turn it on.

Everything you need to know about WoW's 12th Anniversary (World of Warcraft: Legion)

World of Warcraft is celebrating it's 12th Anniversary from November 16th to November 30th in 2016, and this includes a two-week in-game celebration. During this event, all players who log in will get a gift package in their mail box, and it contains the following three items:

1) Celebration Package. This is an item that you can click on to apply a buff to yourself. The buff increases your XP gain and rep gain by +12 % for one hour, but the item can be used as many times as you like, so you pretty much have a permanent +12 % rep/XP buff during these two weeks.

2) 200 x Timewarped Badges. This is a currency that you usually get by doing Timewarped dungeons during the Timewarped event, but it can only be used to purchase some items during the Anniversary. More information on the items is below.

3) Letter from the Timewalkers. This item begins a quest, and is pretty much just there to show you where to find the daily quest and the Timewarped vendor. These are located in Stormwind / Orgrimmar.

All characters get these items in their mail box, at any level, so make sure to pick it up on your alts as well.

Along with the gift package in your mail, there are also a daily quest available during the event, which can be completed once every day. It awards 25 x Timewarped Badge upon completing. The quest is called "A Time to Reflect", and you need to answer one question about WoW history to complete it. Some questions are more difficult than others, but you have unlimited tries, and 4 possible guesses, so for each guess you have 25 % chance to get it right. If you get it wrong, just reopen the chat window to get a new question and another shot at getting it right.

The Anniversary vendor sells a few items for Timewarped Badges, and below are all the items you can buy during the Anniversary:

1) Inflatable Thunderfury, Blessed Blades of the Windseeker (50 Timewarped Badges). Let's you equip an inflatable Thunderfury. It has five charges, and also gives you an achievement.
2) Exquisite Costume Set: "Edwin VanCleef" (200 Timewarped Badges). This items lets you dress up as Edwin VanCleef, and has 50 charges. 
3) Celebration Wand - Gnoll (25 Timewarped Badges). Put a gnoll costume on a party member.
4) Celebration Wand - Murloc (25 Timewarped Badges). Put a murloc costume on a party member.
5) Corgi Pup (200 Timewarped Badges). A battle pet unique to this Anniversary. You can get a total of 3. 

I suggest picking up the Corgi Pup(s) on your alts, because the pets are shared across all characters on the same account. The Celebration Wands can also be sent to other battle.net characters, but the inflatable Thunderfury and Costume Set are bound when picked up.

You can make three level 1 characters to pick up the Corgis if you like, so you don't have to waste the badges on your high level characters. 

If you are saving for one of the Timewarped mounts, you don't have to spend any badges on this event, and can instead get a free 200 Timewarped Badges for using later.

How to get a Corgi Pup pet (World of Warcraft: Legion)

The Corgi Pup is a new battle pet tied to the 12th Anniversary of World of Warcraft, and can be bought by any player for 200 x Timewarped Badges. This might sound like a steep price, but all players get 200 of these in their mail box upon logging in during the Anniversary event, so you can just log in to an alt and use these badges to purchase the pet.

You buy the pet from one of the Historians in either Stormwind or Orgrimmar. Just follow the quest marker from the quest you get in the mail to find the vendor. 

The pet can not be caged, so it's not possible to trade it to other players or sell it on the auction house.

The Corge Pup is most likely only tied with the 12th Anniversary, so you better log in during November 14th to November 30th 2016 to be able to get it.

How to complete Do The Thing / the hidden murloc quests in Suramar (World of Warcraft: Legion)

In the southern corner of Suramar there is a hidden murloc quest chain that has rather vague quest descriptions. However, the quest chain is pretty easy once you figure out what to do, and in the end up will get a unique toy, plus several Artifact Power upgrades.

Below is a quick guide to all the different parts of the quest chain:

Do The Thing guide

Do The Thing is the first part of the quest chain, and has a few steps. You basically need to interact with things on the ground in the surrounding area, including clicking on a crab. After clicking on different things that light up, an orb will be clickable on the ground, and this is the final clickable object for this quest.

Mrgls of Endearment guide

For this part you need to kill crabs in the area around him until you find 4 items that drops from them. The items have about 50 % drop chance, so it should not take a lot of time. Note that he will not follow you around on this part of the quest. Once you have all four items, return to Phin and show him the items you collect. Once you show all four items, you can turn in the quest.

A Mlrglrmg For Grlmrgl guide

In this part you need to guide Phin while he searches trough Conspicuous Dirt Piles & Conspicuous Sand Piles. He will eventually find the item he is looking for in one of these piles, and then you can return to where you picked up the quest to deliver it again.

Mglrgrs Of Our Grmlgrlr guide

Head north until you see pairs of Fal'dorei Hunters. Kill these, and Phin will open the spider webs. You might need to kill a few pairs before he finds the webbed murloc he is looking for. Once he finds it, return to where you picked up the quest to complete the quest chain and get your toy!

How to get to Whimsyshire (Diablo 3)

Whimsyshire is a hidden easter egg level in Diablo 3, and in this area you will find unicorns, teddy bears and lots of flowers. It contains three unique items that cannot be obtained anywhere else, such as the Reinbow Portrait Frame, the Horadric Hambuger and Spectrum.

In order to get to Whimsyshire you need to spawn a portal with the item called Staff of Herding. Once you have the staff you can open the portal to Whimsyshire as many times as you want.

Getting the Staff of Herding

Getting the Staff of Herding can be a somewhat time-consuming process, but as said above, you only need to craft it once on your account (unless you want to enter Whimsyshire in a seasonal character).

You firstly need the Plan: Staff of Herding to be able to craft it. These plans drop from Izual on Act IV upon death, and are not all that rare. The best way to get them is to farm him in Adventure Mode until they drop.

The items needed to create the Staff are:

1) Black Mushroom. These will spawn randomly on the ground in Cathedral Level 1 on any difficulty, and you must click on them for the item to appear. Farming it is done by running trough Cathedral Level 1 as fast as possible, but they are rare, so be prepared to do a lot of runs.

2) Leoric's Shinbone. This item will randomly drop when you click on the fireplace in Leoric's Manor in Act 1. Just use the waypoint to get there, and go to the first room on the right side before going up the first set of stairs. Click on the fireplace at the end of the room, and hope the item drops. Getting this will take a lot of runs, but luckily each run is really short.

3) Liquid Rainbow. This item is really annoying to farm, because you need a lot of luck! To get do, travel to Path of the Oasis waypoint in Act 2. Look around this map for an NPC called Zaven the Alchemist, which must be saved from a pack of mobs. He is not guaranteed to be there, so recreate games until you find him.

Once you find and save him, he will open up a dungeon called Mysterious Cave. This cave has a small chance to spawn a chest called Mysterious Chest, which drops the Liquid Rainbow. The chest is not all that rare (around 33 % chance to spawn), and can spawn in either Level 1 or Level 2, so make sure you clear the whole dungeon.

Upon finding the chest, click on it, and all party members will get one Liquid Rainbow each.

If you have Adventure Mode unlocked it can be a lot faster by looking for the bounty which wants you to clear Mysterious Cave Level 2. This will guarantee that Zaven spawns the dungeon needed.

4) Wirt's Bell. This item is sold by Squirt the Peddler in Hidden Camp Act 2. It costs 100k gold, so it is by far the easiest item to get.

5) Gibbering Gemstone. Go to Fields of Slaughter in Act 3 and start looking for Caverns of Frost. It will not always spawn, so you might need to create a new game a few times to find it.

Once you are in the cave, look for a unique mob called Chiltara. She usually spawns on Level 2, but can also spawn at the first level sometimes, so clear all of the dungeon this time as well.

Chiltara does not have a 100 % spawn chance, but she is not really that rare after her spawn chance was increased by a lot in RoS. However, she only has a small chance to drop the Gibbering Gemstone, so it will take a lot of farming to get the item.

Open the portal to Whimsyshire

Now that you have all the materials, go to the blacksmith to create the Staff of Herding. Have it in your inventory and use the waypoint to The Old Ruins and head northwest to Old Tristram Road. You will very soon see a rainbow colored rift there, and the Ghost of the Cow King will spawn. Talk to him, and you can now click on the rainbow colored rift to get teleported to Whimsyshire!

If you are after the portrait frame, check out the guide to obtaining the Rainbow Portrait Frame.

How to stop the long loading times in Dalaran (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Patch 7.1 added a lot of exciting content, but also added a problem for a lot of users. Upon going to Dalaran and certain other places, the loading screen would take forever to load, and there is luckily a solution to bypass this problem. After following this guide you will notice a very good improvement upon logging in, switching continents and loading Dalaran.

Here's how to do it:
Close WoW and open the Battle.net launcher. Click on "Options" and select "Game Settings". Click on the "Streaming" tab and turn off streaming there. After doing this, save the settings, and your loading times are much better! This will not affect any of the in-game features unless you plan on using the Battle.net launcher to stream to Twitch.

Blizzard offered an alternative solution to the problem in which you could delete your cache folder in the WoW installation folder, but most people don't get any better loading times by doing this.

How to transfer your data from PS4 to PS4 Pro (Playstation)

If you are upgrading from the regular PS4 to a PS4 Pro, you want to transfer all your data along with your upgrade. Luckily it's pretty easy, but it does require about one hour of transfer time. You don't need to be by the systems while transferring after it is initiated, and there are currently two ways to transfer your data from a regular PS4 to a PS4 Pro.

Transfer PS4 data with both consoles

This first method requires you to have both the PS4 and the PS4 Pro connected at the same time, and start by turning both on. Grab an Ethernet cable and connect the two systems, and go to Settings / System on your PS4 Pro. Look for "Transfer Data from another PS4" and follow the instructions on the screen. This requires you to hold the power button on the old PS4 until it beeps.

Select which data you want to transfer, or just transfer it all. You need to log in to all your user account on the old system to confirm that you want to transfer them, and after this the system begins the data transfer. Now just sit back and wait while the systems does the rest of the work.

Transferring data from PS4 to PS4 Pro without a network cable

If you don't have an Ethernet / network cable, you can still transfer your data, but you need an external storage device like an USB stick with a lot of storage, or an external hard drive. This storage device needs to have USB 3.0 and be formatted for exFAT (which is standard for all newer storage devices, so don't worry about formatting it).

Connect the external storage device to your old PS4 and select the "Backup and Restore" option in the Settings / System menu. Select the external storage device as your destination, and the data will transfer over to it. This will reset the old PS4 to standard settings. After this is complete, connect the storage device to your PS4 Pro and again to go "Backup and Restore". From here you can start the data transfer, and this might take a little while. After it's complete the PS4 Pro will restart, and you can begin to use it after logging into your user account. Now you need to go to the menu and select the PS4 Pro as your primary console, and you are done!

How to get a Gwent beta key (Gwent)

Gwent is an upcoming card-game based on The Witcher universe, and will be released for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The beta has already started for PC and Xbox One, but in order to participate you need a beta key. If you are luccky and got one, head to GoG and redeem the code.

In order to get a Gwent key you should firstly sign up at the Gwent website. This will add your e-mail to their database, and you might get lucky the new time they send out new keys.

If you cannot wait that long, there are other means to get your hands on a Gwent closed beta key. You can purchase a code from someone else who was picked from the random invites they have already sent out. Lots of MMO marketplaces sells these, as well as a lot of eBay members, so just search for a seller to purchase one. The price seems to be around $10 USD for one key.

You can also try your luck in the official Reddit Gwent giveaway thread. Lots of people post spare beta keys in there, so make sure to check it often and look for people you might want to give you a key.

How to access The Vault (Diablo 3)

The Vault is a "secret" area in Diablo 3 where there are lots of goblins, and a goblin boss at the end. He drops a guaranteed two legendary items, as well as a unique legendary gem. This is a good place for farming gold, gems and Blood Shards, and there are currently a few different ways to get to The Vault:

1) Use a Puzzle Ring in Kanai's Cube. This will destroy the ring, but open a portal to The Vault. The Puzzle Ring is obtained from random drops like the rest of the legendary items in the game, but gambling for rings at Kadala will usually give you one pretty easily.

2) When playing in Adventure Mode, any goblin you kill will have a low chance to open up a portal to The Vault (excluding Rainbow Goblin). You can then enter the portal and clear the Vault, and get teleported to the area you killed the goblin in upon finishing.

After clearing the final boss in The Vault the portal will close after 90 seconds, and you are free to open a new portal if you got another Puzzle Ring. This lets people group up and clear several instances of The Vault very fast, which is a nice way to get gems and gold at the start of a new season.

How to get the Reins of the Infinite Timereaver (World of Warcraft: Legion)

The Infinite Timereaver is a mount tied to the Timewalking events which takes place every 3-4 weeks. During the event week, players can queue for old dungeons and get their level scaled down to the matching level, and get loot. The Reins of the Infinite Timereaver is a drop from these instances, and can actually drop from any boss in the entire event. This means it can be gotten independently on which timewalking event is active, so it does not matter if it's TBC, Wotlk, Cata or even MoP.

The drop rate is very low, and some people suspect it is 0,05 % per boss, just like the Sha of Anger mount. This means you will need to farm a lot of these instances before you are likely to see one drop for a party member.

The only way to farm this mount is to run the dungeons as much as possible and hope to get lucky. Most players with this mount report that they have bought both the 5,000 Timewarped Badge mounts, so expect to spend a lot of time farming the Reins of the Infinite Timereaver.

In order to farm it as fast as possible you should search for a 5-man party that will chainrun the instances to get rid of queue times.

How to get to Shar'thos (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Shar'thos is one of the 11 World Bosses in Legion, and has a chance to be the weekly boss. In order to be able to kill Shar'thos, you need the World Quest "The Sleeping Corruption", which is found in Val'Sharah.

The fastest way to reach Shar'thos is by using the flight master and fly to Garden of the Moon. From there you should mount up and ride north. The part going north will directly hit his spawn area, and you will be notified by the World Quest marker when you are within range.

Loot from Shar'thos

Shar'thos can drop ilvl 680 chest pieces, as well as a shadow relic, a cloak and a trinket. These can all be rolled by killing him, and by using a Seal of Broken Fate for a bonus roll. You will only recieve loot on the first kill each week.

In addition to regular loot, he also drops Skull of Shar'thos, which is part of the Fury Warrior Hidden Artifact Appearance. This has a 100 % drop chance is you are exalted with the Valarjar, and a lower chance if you are revered.

If you want this skin for your fury weapon, I recommend to gain as much Valarjar rep before the week is over, and hopefully you will hit exalted before he despawns. Due to the number of World Bosses, it might be 11 weeks before he spawns again. We recommend reading out Valarjar reputation guide in order to maximize your rep gains before he despawns.

How to farm Sha of Anger for the mount (World of Warcraft: Legion)

The Sha of Anger is a World Boss from the Mists of Pandaria expansion pack, and is heavily farmed because it has a chance to drop the rarest obtainable mount in the game. The mount is called Reins of the Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent, and the drop chance is 0.05%, which equals the same as 1/2,000! The boss is located in Kun-Lai Summit, and had 5 different spawn point in the lowlands area of the map. He now only has a single spawn point, just west of One Keg.

It's very easy to solo Sha of Anger, and any level 100+ character should be able to do it without any problems. You can only get loot once per week, but the bonus loot has a chance to award the mount as well, so make sure to use it.

The loot is on character-basis, so you can easily farm it on your alts for extra chances at the mount.

The spawn time is currently 15 minutes, so it's not that long of a wait. When he spawns, he will yell across all the zone, so it's easy to see that he is up.

The problem is getting to him on time, because he has very little health, and will be dead within 30 seconds on most servers.The best chance to get him is to wait on your flying mount on the ridge area just south of One Keg. From this point you will be able to see all the different spawn locations, and can fly towards him at once when he spawns.

The Diablo 3 Anniversary Dungeon - everything you need to know (Diablo 3)

Coming in patch 2.4.3, the Anniversary Dungeon will be available in Diablo 3. You can enter and play in this dungeon during all of January, but it will close on the first of February. After that you can reenter it every January again.

The Anniversary Dungeon is based on the original Diablo game, in which you need to travel down 16 floors to find and fight Diablo himself. These levels are randomly generated just like the original game, but every 4th floor will be a boss floor. The bosses in the game are The Butcher, The Skeleton King, Lazarus and Diablo. The ones that are already in Diablo 3 will get their own retro skin for this dungeon.

Along with the retro skin, the rest of the graphics also get a retro setting. Both audio and visual features will have filters to make them look a lot more like the original game than Diablo 3. The graphics will be pixelated, your character can only walk, and only move in 8 directions. The UI will also get a retro look.

All the retro features will only be used in the Anniversary Dungeon, and not for the rest of the game modes.

It's important to remember that this is a game mode for Diablo 3, not a remastered version of the original game. You will use your existing Diablo 3 characters to play this mode, and the main system of levels, loot, skills etc. will be the same as in the rest of Diablo 3.

The Anniversary Dungeon will be tuned for your level just like the rest of the game, so you can simply go to the dungeon with your character to start playing.  To start, open up the map and click on "The Darkening of Tristram" icon right next to The Old Ruins waypoint in Act 1.

Anniversary Dungeon rewards


Participating in and completing the Anniversary Dungeon yields several different rewards, but the exact method for getting each of these is currently not known. Check back when the patch has been on the PTR for exact details on how to get each item. However, below are the known rewards from the Anniversary Dungeon.

- A Legendary gem that can be slotten into the Helmet Slot. This is the first and currently only Legendary Helmet gem.
- Two retro-looking portrait frames.
- Wirt's Wooden Leg as a transmoggable weapon.
- A Banner.
- A Banner Sigil.
- A mini-Butcher pet.
- The Butcher's Sickle weapon transmog.
- Additional rewards which are currently not known.

Level up as fast as possible: Level 100 - 110 (World of Warcraft: Legion)

This is the seventh part of our WoW leveling guide, and this part is all about leveling up in Legion. It will cover all of level 100 - 110, but you can start the Legion content at level 98 if you want to, since all the zones scale to your own level.

Check out all parts of the leveling guide:
Part 1) Level 1 - 58 / vanilla leveling guide.
Part 2) Level 58 - 70 / The Burning Crusade leveling guide.
Part 3) Level 70 - 80 / Wrath of the Lich King leveling guide.
Part 4) Level 80 - 85 / Cataclysm leveling guide.
Part 5) Level 85 - 90 / Mists of Pandaria leveling guide.
Part 6) Level 90 - 100 / Warlords of Draenor leveling guide.
Part 7) Level 100 - 100 / Legion leveling guide.

Level 100 - 100

The fastest way to level up in Legion is to rush the quests needed for the main objectives while skipping the optional ones. A very useful add-on called Conslegion will help with this, and will always tell you what quests to do, and which to skip, and makes leveling up a lot faster!

When selecting zones to level up in, go for either Azsuna og Val'sharah first, because these are fastest in terms of XP/hour. After doing these two, go for Highmountain, and try to hit 110 because even going to Stormheim (unless it's your first character, because then you want to do all zones to get friendly with each faction).

When you finish a zone you get a dungeon quest, and make sure to queue for this dungeon as soon as you get the quest. The experience reward is pretty good, and the items from them makes leveling up later easier. 

At level 101 you should return to your Class Hall to start doing missions. At pre-110 XP bonus missions will be offered, and these takes 2 or 4 hours, and gives you 5 % of your current level as the reward. If you are not going to play it in one sitting, these missions really add up over time!

The XP missions costs 100 Order Resources each, so you might need to do some bonus objectives, kill some rares or loot some treasure chests in order to have the resources needed to go on these missions. If you run low I suggest running trough a whole zone while hunting for rares. They usually drop 70 Order Resources each, and getting a few hundreds is pretty fast.

If you want to do random dungeons while leveling, expect around 25 % of your level progress from each random instance. A lot of the XP comes from completing the instance, so don't leave until finished. Doing specific instances will give less XP, but if you have two or three quests in a particular instance, it will pay off. 

Alternative leveling 100 - 101

A fast way to level from 100 to 101 is by flying around in Tanaan Jungle and picking up treasures. It might be a lot more boring than doing quests, but it is actually more efficient in terms of leveling up.

Level up as fast as possible: Level 90 - 100 (World of Warcraft: Legion)

This is the sixth part of the WoW leveling guide here on Power Up Guides, and this part will cover the Warlords of Draenor content. For this part, leveling can be extremely much faster if you have a lot to gold to spend on the process, as well as Draenor flying unlocked.

If you want to learn how to unlock flying in Dreaenor, check out this guide. This is a somewhat time-consuming achievement, but will make leveling trough the WoD zones a breeze compared to non-flying.

Check out all parts of the leveling guide:
Part 1) Level 1 - 58 / vanilla leveling guide.
Part 2) Level 58 - 70 / The Burning Crusade leveling guide.
Part 3) Level 70 - 80 / Wrath of the Lich King leveling guide.
Part 4) Level 80 - 85 / Cataclysm leveling guide.
Part 5) Level 85 - 90 / Mists of Pandaria leveling guide.
Part 6) Level 90 - 100 / Warlords of Draenor leveling guide.
Part 7) Level 100 - 100 / Legion leveling guide.


Level 90 - 100 with pots and flying

With some spare gold and flying unlocked, you can actually level from 90 to 100 in less than three hours, but it require some preparation. What you need to do firstly in to level trough Shadowmoon Valley / Frostfire Ridge until you unlock your Garrison. From here on it's time to head to the different bonus objectives around Draenor and complete them to as close as 100 % as possible without triggering them. This step will probably take a few hours.

For the next part you need to purchase 1 x Elixir of the Rapid Mind from the auction house. This usually costs around 20k gold on most servers. Also buy 1 x Excess Potion of Accelerated Learning from your Garrison Quartermaster for 100 Garrison Resources. Once you have these two as well as all bonus objectives at around 99 %, head to a random dungeon and pop the pots right before the boss gets killed. Now turn in the quests, and this will give you a few levels.

Once you are done with the dungeon, run to all the bonus objectives and kill the final mob needed to get the experience bonus. With the pots, these will be worth a ton of XP, and you will hit level 100 before the 15 minute XP potion buff expires.

Level 90 - 100 with flying, without pots

 If you got flying, but don't want to spend 20k on Elixir of the Rapid Mind, the best way to level up is simply to fly around and loot all the hidden treasure chests in Draenor. This might be very boring, but it is somewhat efficient for leveling. If you want a break from this, sign up for a few random dungeons.

While working on picking up treasures, complete all the bonus objectives on the map, as well as kill any rares you come across. 

Level 90 - 100 without flying and pots

If you cannot afford the Elixir of the Rapid Mind and don't have flying unlocked, you are in for a much longer ride trough Draenor. What you want to do to level up as fast as possible is to simply rush the quests while always staying queued for a random dungeon. Make sure to do each dungeon at least once for the massive experience from the dungeon quests.

As with the other methods above, always complete the bonus objectives for a nice bonus XP. These are really nice for leveling up! 

Stay away from the scenario quests, because they are not worth it time-wise, even though the give a nice amount of XP after completion.

Earn 20-30k gold per hour by fishing Darkmoon Daggermaw (World of Warcraft: Legion)

After patch 7.1, Darkmoon Daggermaw is the currency for a brand new mount, the Darkwater Skate. This mount costs 500 fish, and they are very easy to fish up on any water surface on the Darkmoon Faire island. However, people are not too interested in fishing, and a lot of people will therefor buy the mount by purchasing Darkmoon Daggermaws from the auction house. This can be used to your advantage when you want to make some easy gold!

Each fishing cast yields one Darkmoon Daggermaw, and most catches get one of these, with the exception of the low drop chance crate, which drops a lot more of them. You can easily fish up 200 of these per hour, and on most high populated servers they are worth around 100g per fish now, which means 20k gold per hour. With some luck you will get even more than 200 per hour.

If you want the details on how to farm them, check out the Darkwater Skate mount guide by clicking here.

Guide to unlock flying on The Broken Isles (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Once patch 7.2 hits live we can start to use the flying mounts on The Broken Isles, but in order to be able to do so you need to complete a set of achievements.

The achievements needed are divided into two parts, one part which you can work on right away, and one part which requires you to play in patch 7.2 to unlock. The information from the second part of the guide might change once 7.2 hits live, because the data is only from the PTR as of now.

Remember to check back once patch 7.2 hits the PTR and the live servers for an updated guide! 

The achievement you need to get to complete first part of the flying is called "Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One". This is a meta-achievement, which means you need several other achievements in order to get this. The following requirements are needed to unlock the achievement:

1) Explore all of The Broken Isles.
2) Complete the major story lines in all Broken Isles zones.
3) Complete the class Order Campaign.
4) Complete 100 different World Quests.
5) Reach revered reputation with all Legion factions.

The requirements themselves are not too difficult, but require a serious time investment. The meta-achievement is account-bound, so you can do some steps on one character and other on another, and still get the achievement. This means that you are not tied to doing it all on your main.
Below you can read up on the details for each step of the achievement.

Broken Isles Explorer / explore all of Legion's zones

This achievement requires you to explore all of the Legion zones completely, and it is actually a bit easier than the previous explorer achievements. It's pretty much just to go to any spot on the map you have not yet visited, and upon exploring the whole zone, the achievement will tick.

There are no especially hard-to-reach areas in the Legion version of this achievement, so go explore, you you will get it.

Note that this achievement is account-bound, so you can explore one zone on one character and the rest on another, and still get the achievement for exploring it all.

Loremaster of Legion / Complete all major quest chains

In order to unlock this you need to complete all the major quest chains in all the Legion zones. Each individual zone has it's own achievement, and get all five of these to get the Loremaster achievement.

The four leveling zones should mostly come organically upon leveling up for the first time, but return to any quest chain you might have missed and finish it up to get it done.

The Suramar part can be pretty difficult, and actually requires a very lengthy quest chain, and most of it is gated behind reputation levels. You need to be exalted to complete the entire quest chain, so you better get working on the reputation to get this.

Variety is the Spice of Life / 100 different World Quests

This part require you to complete 100 different World Quests, and this part will also come pretty much automatically for those of you that are into doing World Quests every day. Note that it has to be 100 different World Quests, so that doing some of them several times will not count.

If you have not yet unlocked World Quests, then quest in all zones until you are at least friendly with each faction. After doing this you can return to Khadgar in Dalaran to unlock them.

This part of the achievement also ties up with the next part, the reputation gains, because World Quests are the main source of rep gain in legion.

Broken Isles Diplomat / reach revered with all main Legion factions

You need to be revered reputation with all six of the major Legion factions to get this part of the achievement, and the main source is as noted above: doing World Quests. You can read more about the different factions below.

1) Court of Farondis. These are located in Azsuna, and tied with the quests there. Completing all quests gets you to Honored level, and the rest of the grind comes from World Quests and Emissary Quests. Read the full Court of Farondis reputation guide here.

2) Highmountain Tribe. This reputation is tied with the zone called Highmountain, and you will get to Honored by questing here. The rest of the grind comes from World Quests and Emissary Quests. Click here for the full Highmountain Tribe reputation guide.

3) The Valarjar.You get reputation with these guys to Honored by doing quests in Stormheim. More rep is gotten from World Quests and Emissary Quests. Read the full Valarjar rep guide here.

4) The Dreamweavers. These guys are located in Val'sharah, and you get rep up to Honored from questing there. More reputation is gained from Emissary Quests and World Quests. You can read the full reputation guide for The Dreamweavers here.

5) The Wardens. This faction is a World Quest-only faction, and does not have any quests tied with them. They are located in Azsuna, but in order to get rep you need do to World Quests and Emissary Quests. These will most likely be the last one you get to revered unless you specifically focus on them. Read The Warden's reputation guide here.

6) The Nightfallen. This is the faction located in Suramar, and they have a lot of quests tied to them. However, these are only unlocked at level 110, so you cannot work on this reputation while leveling up. They also have World Quests and Emissary Quests for rep gain. You can also do the Withered Army Training scenario every four days for a nice reputation boost. Read the full Nightfallen reputation guide by clicking here.

You do not need revered reputation with Talon's Vengeance, so don't bother with this unless you want the mount.

The strategy to get easy rep is to complete all the available quests while always doing the Emissary Quests, which gives +1,500 rep each. There will only be one Emissary Quest available every day, but you can save up to three of them at a time, so log in and complete these at least every third day to get the full benefit of those.

If you are behind on one of the factions, just go to their zone and complete World Quests to catch up.

Some Class Hall Missions can also award rep tokens for +250 reputation with one of the factions, so keep an eye of for those.

A Glorious Campaign / Complete the Class Hall Campaign

This part of the Pathfiender achievement is unlocked by fully completing the Class Hall Campaign, and the exact quest chain is pretty different for all the different classes. In order to get this quest chain done you will have to complete a lot of regular quests in the Legion zones, as well as going into a lot of different dungeons. You start this quest chain once you unlock your Class Hall, and new quests are unlocked for each level up. Upon completing the whole chain you get an ilvl 830 chest piece, a unique title, the third artifact relic slot, and of course this achievement.

I'm sure most players have already unlocked this on their main because the third relic slot is pretty essential to playing at max level, but if not, just check your quest log and work on the chain.


Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two

This second achievement is also needed to unlock flying on the Broken Isles, but is a lot easier than the first part. Below is the stuff you need to do to unlock it:

1) Have Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One.
2) Explore Broken Shore (a new and overhauled zone in patch 7.2).
3) Breaching the Tomb (probably tied with the main quest chain i patch 7.2).
4) Defender of the Broken Isles (again, I guess this is tied with the main quest chain).
5) Legionfall Commander (tied to a certain reputation level with the new patch 7.2 faction Armies of Legionfall).

This part of the guide will be updated once patch 7.2 hits the PTR and we can find the exact stuff that needs to be done to unlock the flying mounts on the Broken Isles.

Guide to unlock flying in Draenor (World of Warcraft: Legion)

If you want to use flying mounts in Draenor, you need to complete a certain set of achievements in order to get the meta-achievement "Draenor Pathfinder". This can be completed on several different characters, as long as you unlock one achievement on one character, it will carry over to the meta-achievement.

Note that the following guide was written during Legion, so it is intended for soloing at level 110, but I'm sure it can still be used in future expansions as well.

So, why bother spending time to unlock this now that we are mostly in the Broken Isles? For starters, it will be much faster to level up alts with this. The achievement is account wide, so all level 90+ characters can fly in Draenor once you unlock it on your Battle.net account. Other rewards include some fun toys (13 in total from treasures), a few pets, and transmogs from treasure chests and reputation rewards, as well as the Soaring Skyterror mount which you will get from completing the Pathfiender achievement.

Draenor Pathfiender requirements

In order to unlock flying in Draenor, you need to complete the following requirements:
1) Explore all of the Dranor zones to get the Explorer achievements.
2) Collect 100 Treasures from non-Tanaan zones.
3) Complete all major quest lines to get the Loremaster of Draenor achievement.
4) Complete 12 specific Apexis dailies.
5) Get revered with the 3 Tanaan Jungle factions.

So, it's not all that difficult, but for new characters it will take some time to get it all done.

Some tips before beginning

We will soon go into details for how to unlock it as fast and easy as possible, but firstly we will sover some small tips you should keep in mind while working on the achievement.

-  Order of the Awakened reputation requires at least 14 days of daily quests, while Hand of the Prophet/Vol'jin's Headhunters has minimum 19 days, so you should get started on this right away. These are both in Tanaan Jungle.
-  The Lorewalker achievements are based on account basis, so don't spend a lot of time to redo it on a new character if you already have the zone achievement.
- Some people think it's impossible to reach Frostfire Ridge as Alliance because of the massive boulder blocking the way, but there is actually a small tunnel leading trough it.
- A Level 3 Trading Post gives +20 % extra rep, so you might want to build this as soon as possible.
- Also don't forget to pick up the rep buff from Darkmoon Faire if it's available.

Exploring Draenor

So, the first part is to explore all of the zones in Draenor. This is pretty self-explainatory, and you pretty much just need to uncover all of the areas on the map until you get the achievement tied to the zone. Once you have all of the achievements for all of the zones the meta-achievement Draenor Explorer will be unlocked, and you are done with this part.

Again, remember that this is account wide, so you can skip any zones you already fully explored on another character.

Completing all the major quest lines

This part requires you to complete all the major quest lines in each of the Draenor zones. You can track your progress on the quest log where it will tell you how far away from each zone you are. You need to complete the Loremaster achievement for every single zone to get the Loremaster of Draenor achievement needed to unlock flying.

Note that Alliance cannot get the Frostfire Ridge achievement, while Horde cannot get the Shadowmoon Valley achievement, so you only need the one for the faction you are playing.

You should do this step before working on the treasures (step below), because this achievement will unlock a treasure chest map for the same zone.

Collecting Treasures

For this part you need to collect 100 treasures from non-Tanaan zones. This should not be too difficult considering you got maps for most of the zones, and there are over 200 treasures available, so you only need half of them.

The Treasure Maps are unlocked by completing the quest lines in the same zone, which is also required for the above step. The maps cost 100g each, and are sold by a vendor named Grakis, located in Stormshield for Alliance, and by Srikka in Warspear for Horde.

If you are not going to be doing the main quest lines you can also get the maps from Garrison Missions. In order to get these missions, you need to collect 5 Restored Artifact from archaeology and buy them from the same vendor as the maps. Each 5 Artifacts give one mission, which will give you a new map. This is also the only way to Alliance to get the map to Frostfire Ridge, and for Horde to get the map for Shadowmoon Valley.

The treasures are personal loot, so you don't need to worry about respawn timers or anything like that. Just run around and pick them up, and you get the achievement fairly easily.

This part of the achievement is pretty nice, because you will end up with a whole lot of toys, pets and some other cool stuff. 

Complete the 12 Specific Daily Quests

Now it's time to complete some daily quests. You used to have to wait until these spawned organically in your Garrison, but now it's easier because you can buy the quest for 200 Garrison Resources from your Garrison Quartermasters just outside your main garrison building.

I recommend buying them all to do it the easy way, and this requires a total of 2200 Garrison Resources, which you should have now because of all the quests you've done and treasures you have found.

All quests require you to fill up a progress bar, so just kill enemies and loot objectives to complete it. Each one should only take a few minutes at level 110. 

At level 110 these should all be very easy to solo, so it's not needed to find a group for any of them anymore.

The following Daily Quests are needed:
1) Assault on Everbloom Wilds (Gorgrond)
2) Assault on the Pit (Gorgrond)
3) Assault on the Broken Precipice (Nagrand)
4) Assault on Mok'gol Watchpost (Nagrand)
5) Assault on Skettis (Spires of Arak)
6) Assault on Shattrath Harbor (Talador)
7) Assault on the Iron Siegeworks (Frostfire Ridge)
8) Assault on Magnarok (Frostfire Ridge)
9) Assault on Stonefury Cliffs (Frostfire Ridge)
10) Assault on Darktide Roost (Darkmoon Valley)
11) Assault on Pillars of Fate (Darkmoon Valley)
12) Assault on Socrethar's Rise (Shadowmoon Valley)

These are all the daily quests needed, and you only need to do them once each. Don't bother with doing any other dailies (except for the reputation ones listed below).

Getting the Tanaan factions to revered

This is the final step to unlock flying in Draenor, but unfortunately it takes a lot longer than all of the above. This is because two of these factions are tied to daily quests, and requires 14 and 19 days to get revered. This is also why i recommended to start on this right away, while doing the other objectives of the achievement while you are working on this.

If you are very rich, go to the Auction House and buy a few "Medallion of the Legion". This item can be used to increase your Draenor reputations by 1,000. This means that you need a total of 21 of these items to get the factions to revered, which is a nice way to do it if you are a little too rich.

Below is a general strategy to getting rep with all three factions needed without using the Medallion of the Legion.

Saberstalkers

The Sabelstalker's faction is the only faction you can grind, so you should be working on this when you have some spare time. Getting it to revered can be somewhat time-consuming if you are on a server where people are fighting for the mobs, but you should be able to complete it within a play session.

This reputation used to be somewhat difficult because the mobs were difficult to solo, but it's a breeze at level 110, and you should not have any problems with this at all.

The main way to get reputation is by killing any Blackfang mobs located right besides the faction. These all gives 25 reputation (without buffs) each, so you need a total of 840 mobs if you do it this way.

There are also four rare spawns in this area, and they each give 500 reputation, so kill these when they spawn.

Each week you will get a weekly quest in which you have to kill 3 summonable bosses. The bosses are summoned using items sold by the faction vendor. This quest is easily soloable, and gives 3,500 reputation each week.

Some days one of the daily quests from the main hub will also offer one Sabelstalker's daily quest called "Tooth and Claw", and this will give you 1,500 reputation with them.

Hand of the Prophet / Vol'jin's Headhunters

Firstly you need to complete the introduction quests in Tanaan Jungle, which will get you to 2,200 reputation. This will also unlock three daily quests, which will award a total of 1,000 reputation daily. This means that you need to do these for 19 days to get revered.

There is a small chance that a forth daily quest will spawn, which will give you an extra 250 reputation for that day, so if you are lucky, you might need a few days less in total.

Order of the Awakened

Without any reputation buffs this will require 14 days of dailies. At your main factions base you can pick up the daily quest "Unseen Influence", in which you need to loot 10 Fel-Corrupted Apexis Fragments. These drop from any rare elites in Tanaan, so the best way to do it is simply to run around and look for these. One-time treasure chests also drops these, but this can only be dropped once per chest.

Each day this quest will give you 1,500 rep without any buffs.

I really recommend that you do not run around and loot all the chests in Tanaan right away, because tracking down elites can be difficult at times, and when you are in a hurry you might want to rather just rush a few chests and get the daily done.

Flying in Draenor unlocked!

At this point you are done, and the achievement will unlock. Now all your characters can fly in Draenor, and a brand new Soaring Skyterror mount awaits you in your in-game mailbox.

Level up as fast as possible: Level 85 - 90 (World of Warcraft: Legion)

This is the fifth part of Power Up Guides' WoW leveling guide, and this part will cover the Mists of Pandaria part ranging from level 85 to 90.

This part of the leveling process will be a lot faster if you pick up a Grimoire of the Four Winds. This item is sold on the Black Market Auction House, so the price will be dependent on which server you play on. With this you can learn to fly in Pandaria at level 85 instead of 90, so the process of leveling up will be a lot faster.

Check out all parts of the leveling guide:
Part 1) Level 1 - 58 / vanilla leveling guide.
Part 2) Level 58 - 70 / The Burning Crusade leveling guide.
Part 3) Level 70 - 80 / Wrath of the Lich King leveling guide.
Part 4) Level 80 - 85 / Cataclysm leveling guide.
Part 5) Level 85 - 90 / Mists of Pandaria leveling guide.
Part 6) Level 90 - 100 / Warlords of Draenor leveling guide.
Part 7) Level 100 - 100 / Legion leveling guide.


Level 85 to 90

Head to the Jade Forest once you are level 85, and skip the first invasion quests completely. You can pick up the regular quests in the zone without bothering with these. While doing this, keep staying queued for each dungeon once, and complete all quests tied to the dungeon for a nice experience boost.

The experience points needed to hit 90 is really low, and you will most likely be 90 before ever finishing Jade Forest if you do all the dungeons at least once. This part should not take more than a few hours if you got a flying mount.

Level up as fast as possible: Level 80 - 85 (World of Warcraft: Legion)

This is the fourth part of Power Up Guides' WoW leveling guide, and in this part we will cover how to level up the Cataclysm content as fast as possible, from level 80 to 85. This part of the game does not really have any amazing tricks to make it go very fast, but the below tips will get you to 85 as fast as possible.

Check out all parts of the leveling guide:
Part 1) Level 1 - 58 / vanilla leveling guide.
Part 2) Level 58 - 70 / The Burning Crusade leveling guide.
Part 3) Level 70 - 80 / Wrath of the Lich King leveling guide.
Part 4) Level 80 - 85 / Cataclysm leveling guide.
Part 5) Level 85 - 90 / Mists of Pandaria leveling guide.
Part 6) Level 90 - 100 / Warlords of Draenor leveling guide.
Part 7) Level 100 - 100 / Legion leveling guide.


Level 80 - 85

Once you have hit level 80, go to Stormwind or Orgrimmar to start the quest chain. Head to Hyjal and start questing there, and complete the quests as fast as possible. While questing, queue for dungeons. Make sure to do each dungeon at least once to get the bonus experience from the dungeon quests.

Upon hitting new levels, keep going to new zones, and do not bother to complete each zone. The basic strategy should be to rush quests as fast as possible without bothering to do non-optional quests and killing more mobs than needed. Use your flying mount to do fly to the objectives and get them done quickly.

Level up as fast as possible: Level 70 - 80 (World of Warcraft: Legion)

This is the third part of Power Up Guides' WoW leveling guide, and here you will learn to level from 70 to 80 as fast as possible. This part of the guide is from the Wrath of the Lich King expansion pack, which takes place in Northrend.

Note that you can learn to fly in Northrend already at level 68, so make sure to learn this from a mount trainer to increase the leveling speed by a whole lot! 

Check out all parts of the leveling guide:
Part 1) Level 1 - 58 / vanilla leveling guide.
Part 2) Level 58 - 70 / The Burning Crusade leveling guide.
Part 3) Level 70 - 80 / Wrath of the Lich King leveling guide.
Part 4) Level 80 - 85 / Cataclysm leveling guide.
Part 5) Level 85 - 90 / Mists of Pandaria leveling guide.
Part 6) Level 90 - 100 / Warlords of Draenor leveling guide.
Part 7) Level 100 - 100 / Legion leveling guide.


Level 70 - 80

For this part of the leveling journey, you want to do some quests. Keep doing quests that match your level, and don't be afraid to skip out half of the zone once you outlevel it. Always stick with a zone that matches your level!

Always fly to the quest objectives, do them and return to the quest giver. Don't bother killing non-required mobs, and just focus on the quests.

While question, sign up for random dungeons, and make sure to complete each dungeon at least once, because the quest experience rewards are amazing. If you prefer to quest instead of doing dungeons, you should still do each dungeon once for the quest rewards.

If you have a high-level friend that can help you, head to the Champion of Anguish questchain in Zul'Drak. This is the area style quests that gives a huge amount of experience upon doing it, and it is extremely fast with a level 110 to help you do it. Don't bother with this part if you play solo.

How to farm Wool Cloth really fast (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Wool Cloth is actually pretty valuable on some servers, but farming a stack of 200 only takes around 10 minutes with this method. What you need to do is to run Stockades in the middle of Stormwind. For Alliance it's extremely easy to get there, just use a portal, and you are only 20 seconds away.

Just run along the instance, stick your head into each side room to pull all the mobs, and after you pull the boss which is straight ahead, go to the west corridor towards Hogger. Pull all of his mobs as well, and aoe them all down once they are all in the same room. This will get you 40 - 80 Wool Cloth each time, along with some Linen Cloth and some Silk Cloth.

Once you've killed and looted all of these, run out of the instance and reset it. You can reset it five times per hour, and get around 300 Wool Cloth each 5 times. Also, don't bother with the eastern wing, it does not drop any cloth at all.

Level up as fast as possible: Level 58 - 70 (World of Warcraft: Legion)

This is the second part of Power Up Guides' World of Warcraft leveling guide, and in this guide you will learn how to level up to max level as fast as possible! In these guides, some steps require a good amount of gold, but we will offer alternative methods for those that don't want to spend 100k + gold on leveling a single alt.

In this part, we will cover content from The Burning Crusade. This starts at level 58, but if you are already level 60, don't worry, you can still use the guide.

Check out all parts of the leveling guide:
Part 1) Level 1 - 58 / vanilla leveling guide.
Part 2) Level 58 - 70 / The Burning Crusade leveling guide.
Part 3) Level 70 - 80 / Wrath of the Lich King leveling guide.
Part 4) Level 80 - 85 / Cataclysm leveling guide.
Part 5) Level 85 - 90 / Mists of Pandaria leveling guide.
Part 6) Level 90 - 100 / Warlords of Draenor leveling guide.
Part 7) Level 100 - 100 / Legion leveling guide.

Level 58 - 70

Leveling up in Outland does not really have any nice tricks like some of the other expansion packs do, but this part should not really take that long anyway. Just like in the previous part you should do each dungeon at least once to get all the experience point from the dungeon quests.

If you play a tank or healer, you should keep chaining dungeons the whole way, while DPS should keep queuing while doing quests while in the queue. Make sure to keep going to new zones once you level up, because questing in Hellfire Peninsula at level 66 awards really bad exp compared to the higher level zones.

If you have a max level friend that can lend you a hand, go complete the Ring of Blood quests in Nagrand. These gives a huge amount of experience, and with a high level it can be done in a few minutes.

Once you hit level 70, it's time to head to Northrend and part 3 of the guide.

Level up as fast as possible: Level 1 - 58 (World of Warcraft: Legion)

This is the first part of Power Up Guides' World of Warcraft leveling guide, and in this guide you will learn how to level up to max level as fast as possible! In these guides, some steps require a good amount of gold, but we will offer alternative methods for those that don't want to spend 100k + gold on leveling a single alt.

This part will cover the vanilla part, level 1 to 58. You could also do this to level 60, but you can enter Outland at 58, and that is much faster than to level to 60 in the vanilla zones.

You should equip your character with as many pieces of heirloom gear as possible. These are sold in all major cities, and each piece is between 500 and 700 gold, so it's not too expensive. The most vital parts are head, back, chest, pants and weapon. Trinkets are nice, but optional. Rings are pretty difficult to get, but use it if you have it. Amulets are also good to have, but not needed, since they don't give + % XP like the most other parts do. The weapons does not give +XP either, but are essential for leveling fast, since you will be a whole lot stronger with one of these equipped.

Check out all parts of the leveling guide:
Part 1) Level 1 - 58 / vanilla leveling guide.
Part 2) Level 58 - 70 / The Burning Crusade leveling guide.
Part 3) Level 70 - 80 / Wrath of the Lich King leveling guide.
Part 4) Level 80 - 85 / Cataclysm leveling guide.
Part 5) Level 85 - 90 / Mists of Pandaria leveling guide.
Part 6) Level 90 - 100 / Warlords of Draenor leveling guide.
Part 7) Level 100 - 100 / Legion leveling guide.

Level 1 - 15

The first part will depend on what race you play as. Some races such as worgen or pandaren has a long intro quest, and you pretty much just need to follow this to be released into the world. For this, just rush trough the quest chain as fast as possible to get this done.

If you play a class that can do dots, such as priest or warlock, run around and dog many mobs. They will die before you need to renew your dots, so you can powerlevel like crazy by just running around and dotting enemies. Combine this with quests to reach level 15 fast.

Non-dotting classes should either just run along with the quests, or go kill mobs a few levels higher. With a full heirloom set, you can easily kill mobs 4-5 levels above you at lower levels, so just rush along and kill a few level 5 enemies after creating the character.

Getting to level 15 should take about one hour with this method, but again, if farming mobs are too boring, just go along with the quests. It won't take much longer.

Level 15 - 58

Leveling from level 15 to 58 is fastest done by chaining dungeons. As a tank or healer you will get instant queues, so pick one of these speccs if your class has it. As a DPS, you will mostly get queue times between 2 and 8 minutes, depending on at what times you play.

You should run each dungeon at least once, but queue for a random dungeon, and you will usually get each one at least one time. Make sure to do all the dungeon quests, because these gives an insane amount of experience.

After each run you should invite everyone in the group to join together for more runs, because this will let you skip queue times.

With a group of all heirloom geared people running these dungeons should be very easy, and you can chainpull most of the instance.

Running dungeons all the way to 58 can be somewhat boring for people, and if you need a break, open your Adventure Guide to pick up quests for your level. This can be a nice break, but will take a lot longer than running dungeons.

Once you hit 58, go our to the next part of the guide to level up during the Outland content.

Guide to Karazhan attunement (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Before you can enter the new Karazhan dungeon, you need to complete an attunement quest chain. This chain start at Khadgar in Violet Citadel in Dalaran.
The quest chain requires you to complete the following four mythic dungeon in this order:
1) Halls of Valor Mythic difficulty.
2) Black Rook Hold Mythic difficult.
3) Violet Hold Mythic difficulty.
4) Vault of The Warden Mythic difficulty.

Once you have done all of these, return to Khadgar, and he will have to travel to Karazhan by using a portal. There he will give you several more quests, but all of these takes place in the surrounding area around the dungeon. Upon completing these quests, you are attuned with your account, and can enter Karazhan on all your characters.

How to craft 30 slot bags in Legion (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Patch 7.1 added a new craftable 30 slot bag for tailors, and getting it requires a visit to the new Karazhan mythic dungeon.

To start the questchain to learn the pattern, go to Leyweaver Tytallo located in The Grand Promenade in Suramar. He will offer the quest "The Big Bag Theory" if you have completed the entire Imbued Silkweave quest chain, and to complete this you need to head to Karazhan. You need two items, and they each have a 100 % drop chance from Moroes and Viz'aduum the Watcher.

Crafting the Imbued Silkweave Bag requires the following:
- 100 Imbued Silkweave.
- 20 Runic Catgut.
- 10 Blood of Sargeras.

How to fix the Karazhan dungeon lock (World of Warcraft: Legion)

The dungeon lock for Karazhan is not currently working properly, so continuing on the Karazhan dungeon after initially taking a break is not possible. There is an easy fix for this, and the whole group needs to do the following:

Enter the dungeon without being in a group. This will put you in the correct instance lockout. Everyone in the group will have to do this.

Because you are all on the same instance lock, you will see the other members there without being in a party. Now that you are all inside you can invite everyone to the group, and continue from where you left off.

How to farm Marks of Prey very fast (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Marks of Prey is a PvP item you need in order to get reputation with Talon's Vengeance, and at honored you get an item that awards this on kill in battlegrounds. This means it will be possible to farm it very easy, because it does not require you to kill players.

The fastest way to farm them at the moment is to go to Alterac Valley and kill low-level mobs there. They die extremely fast, and has a normal chance of awarding the Mark of Prey! With this method you should be able to get to exalted really fast.

The downside to this method is that you need to be at least honored in order to be able to get the Marks of Prey from battlegrounds, and getting reputation to honored can be a chore in itself.

If you still have not unlocked the faction, check out our guide to unlocking Talon's Vengeance.

How to create a Demon Hunter on any server (World of Warcraft: Legion)

In order to be able to create a Demon Hunter, you need to have at least one level 70+ character on that server. In contrast to Death Knights, which are unlocked to all servers once you reach level 70, the Demon Hunter acts on a server basis, so you cannot create one on a fresh server.

There is however a trick to be able to create a Demon Hunter without having a level 70+ character on that server. You need to have Legion, because this lets you create a Class Trail Character. These will be level 100, and does not really count to unlock the Demon Hunter, but if you are fast enough, you will be able to do it. So create a Class Trail Character and click on the button to create a new character asap once it's level 100. This will have Demon Hunter as an unlocked option most times, but if it does not work, delete the Class Trail Character and try again. You can create 5 of these per hour, and you will most likely be able to get the Demon Hunter easily within these 5 tries.

How to get Moroes as a Class Hall Champion (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Moroes was added as a Class Hall Champion in patch 7.1 along with him as a boss in Karazhan. Any class and faction can get him as a Class Hall Champion, but unlocking him require some bits of luck.

The first step involves killing him in Karazhan and hope that an item called "Broken Pocket Watch" drops. This items begin a quest called Master of the House, which is the quest you need to complete to unlock him. This need you to collect the following four items:
1) Exquisitely Stinky Cheese. Obtained from a mission at the Class Hall.
2) Falanaar Fine Vintage. Obtained from a mission at the Class Hall.
3) Spiced Rib Roast. Created by cooking it, or just buy it from the Auction House.
4) Master's Bell. This is dropped by Shade of Medivh in Karazhan.

Once you have all four items, go to the cemetery outside of Karazhan and turn in the quest. This opens up a new quest you can turn in at the same time, which awards Moroes as a Class Hall Champion.

Getting a Falcosaur Mount / How to unlock the Talon's Vengeance faction (World of Warcraft: Legion)

In this guide you will learn how to get a falcosaur mount as well as unlocking the Talon's Vengeance PvP faction. I decided to do both of these guides as one because 90 % of the steps are the same, and you actually need a falcosaur mount to unlock the faction.

The Talon's Vengeance faction was added to WoW in patch 7.1, but was not found until almost a week after release. It requires a pretty long quest chain to unlock, starting with the new Falcosaur World Quests. Upon doing the quests needed to unlock Talon's Vengeance, you will also end up with at least one Falcosaur battle pet and one Falcosaur mount.

Part 1: Obtaining the falcosaur battle pet

There are currently 4 World Quests which will start the quest chain, and they are named "Sharptalon Swarm!",  "Bloodgazer Swarm!", "Direbeak Swarm!", and "Snowfeather Swarm!". These will spawn randomly like any other World Quest, and will be up for 48 hours each. More than one of these can spawn at a time, so it's pretty likely to find it somewhat soon. If you already completed the quest, don't worry. The event is tied to the World Quest being active on your realm, not if you have the quest, so you can return to the area and still get the quest chain started.

Once you have the World Quest for any of these, head to Dalaran to buy a special item needed.
- For the Bloodgazer in Azsuna, you need Azunian Grapes. (Applebought: Fruit Vendor).
- For Direbeak in Stormheim you need Pungent Vrykul Gamalost. (Elling Trias: Master of Cheese).
- For Sharptalon in Val'sharah you need Dried Bilberries. (Fialla Sweetberry: Food & Drink).
- For Snowfeather in Highmountain you need Smoked Elderhorn. (From any innkeeper).
All of these items can be bought by vendors in Dalaran, so make sure to pick one up before going to the World Quest.

Once you have the correct item, head to the World Quest and start doing it. Upon killing a Matriarch, and orphaned hatchling will spawn. You can interact with this and give it the special item you bought, and upon doing so you will unlock the pet as a battle pet.

The Matriarch  has a lot of health, and can be pretty difficult to solo, but should be doable by most classes. Once it's defeated, the Orphaned Hatchling will spawn somewhat close to the Matriarch, but they are kind of outside of the main quest area. When you give them the item they require you will automatically learn the pet. The item is not consumed (and also bought in packs of 5), so trade to nearby players to spread the love when you are done!

Spawn points of the different hatchlings:
- For the Bloodgazer in Azsuna, go to a middle small island pretty much in the middle of the entire World Quest, just south of the Matriarch. (coords: 35, 7)
- For Direbeak in Stormheim go north towards the murloc area, climb the stony path there until you reach the ledge above the area just north of the World Quest. Now jump down on a ledge where the hatchling spawns. This can be a little tricky to find, since the hatchling is actually outside of the World Quest area. (coords: 79, 69)
- For Sharptalon in Val'sharah (coords: 47, 1)
- For Snowfeather in Highmountain (coords: 32,28)

And a small warning before progressing further: The Direbeak and the Bloodgazer ones eventually requires you do complete a quest in Nighthold, which has not opened at the time of posting this guide, so you might want to pick any of the other two instead, so you can do the corresponding quest in The Emerald Dream instead of Nighthold! 

Part 2: The falcosaur battle pet quest chain

Just a quick tip before going into detail about the quest chain: The quests are theoretically bound to be limited to one quest per day, but can be done across multiple characters. This means that you can log onto your alts to pick up new quests by summoning the falcosaur, and this way you can do the chain a whole lot faster than if you only play one character. Once you pick up the quest you can return to your main to keep doing the chain, since the quests are shared across all characters.

Step 1) The first part to unlock the faction is done, and you have got your pet, but there's still a lot to do. Now it's time to level it up! In order to progress on the chain, the battle pet needs to be level 25, so either use a Battle-Training Stone to do this instantly, or go out and level it up.

Step 2) When it is level 25, it will give you a quest to bring the pet to any major city such as Stormwind or Orgrimmar, depending on which pet you have. Just take the correct portal from Dalaran to complete this.

Step 3) The next part requires you to beat 3 different wild pets using the Falcosaur. Each of the four falcosaurs has different pets to defeat. Again, this should be pretty easy since it's already level 25.

Step 4) Now you will get a new quest to complete 5 World Quest in a specific zone while having the Falcosaur active. What quests you do does not matter, just as long as it is in the correct zone.

Step 5) Next part requires you to do 3 Pet Battle World Quests with the pet summoned, as well as using it for completing the quest.

Step 6) This next part will require you to beat 1 rare elite World Quest with your pet. This is usually a Warden World Quest that spawns frequently.

Step 7) This time you need to defeat three more wild pets in battle, but these ones are different from the first three you needed. Again the exact pets you need to defeat depends on which hatchling you use.

Step 8) Now it's time for some PvP World Quests, and you need to complete 3 of these with your pet summoned.

Step 9) The next part is really easy, and just requires you to buy a specific item from a vendor in Dalaran.

Step 10) Once that is done, your next quest will be to defeat 3 more specific wild pets using the hatchling with two additional pets from a specific pet family. Once again the pets needed to defeat and used depends on which falcosaur you are using.

Step 11) The next part requires you to complete a certain dungeon with the hatchling alongside you. This can be done in either normal, heroic, mythic or mythic+, so just rush trough it if you don't want to hassle with completing a mythic run.

Step 12) The next part is pretty much the same as the one two steps above, defeating 3 wild pets with a certain pet family and the falcosaur hatchling.

Step 13) Now you need to return the hatchling to the nest, and you will get a matching mount!

Step 14) The final part requires you to bring the hatchling into a raid and defeat a specific boss. However, this is optional since you already have the mount, but I decided to add it, so this guide can be used as a falcour quest chain guide as well.
The Direbeak and the Bloodgazer hatchlings requires to to go to The Nighthold, while the other two are in The Emerald Dream.

Part 3: Unlocking Talon's Vengeance

The hard part is done, and now you can head to Aviana in Highmountain with your new mount. Use the mount and the battle pet, and interact with Aviana. This will trigger the introductory quest, and you will unlock the faction and be awarded the PvP item Ivory Talon.

Congrats on your long journey to unlocking the faction! If you want to learn how to gain reputation with Talon's Vengeance, check out the Talon's Vengeance reputation guide
