To avoid upsetting anyone all my beta information is going to be hidden from the main page, So if you want to have content spoiled you will need to click the “read more” link further down the page. The only clue will be from the title of the post but these will, I promise, always be vague enough to not give anything away.
My purpose of playing the beta is to try to break the game, I’m not doing any actual content that I am likely to run Evlyxx, or any of my alts through a kajillion times after the launch. I am here for exploration, looking at the older Azeroth content and to see where I need to go to be able to power level professions.
If you have any requests for places you’d like me to go or NPCs to visit drop me a line at evlyxx at evlyxx dot com or leave me a comment below.
Just a tiny post about my experience levelling a mage in Teldrasil. After levelling in all the starting areas on teh beta realm, I had high hopes. These were quickly dashed as there has been only one very minute change which is to move Iverron, the guy who has been poisoned and is sitting outside of the cave, back into the hills to the left of the cave entrance, except now this poor fellow is now actually sitting right outside the cave, obviously now too injured to run away.
However, unlike most of the other zones where I suffered a little bit of downtime between mob pulls to regenerate health the mage in Teldrassil seemed very powerful and I never had to stop as mana regenerated fast enough between pulls and I never got hit.
But that was not the best bit. One of the early quests is to kill Nightsabres and one ityem they dropped was Cat Hair, this item vendors for 7 silver 33 copper, not much for anyone used to a level 80 but as a level 5 this is huge. I certainly never had a level 4 make a gold purely through the levelling process before!
I have checked on the live realms, and this item does not drop in this zone, even after 10 minutes of killing those kitties! The item is not even listed on WoWHead (live or cataclysm sections), so I guess it must have been some glitch, we’ll just have to see if it makes it live…
