[Feb 24, 2013 | No Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

Hello! I am Twoling! Welcome to my grandfather’s Emporium! Do you know the Icesnake? He is away in Pandaria this week, seeking some rare items for his armor set, and asked me to watch the shop for him.

We are having a special this week on MogIt. MogIt is an add-on that provides you with an in-game catalog of transmogrification items, to help you build your own sets.

You can find MogIt on Curse. …

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.1 (2013); OmniCC

[Jan 25, 2013 | No Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

I am the Icesnake, and this is my Emporium.

OmniCC is an addon that adds text to items, spell and abilities that are on cooldown to indicate when they will be ready to use. In other words: it turns all the standard analogue cooldowns into digital ones.

Anything should work with OmniCC, from the action bars to the inventory, from the standard interface to your favorite add-on. This add-on will let you see at a …

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.1 (2013); Essential Add-ons

[Jan 9, 2013 | One Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

I am the Icesnake, and this is my Emporium.

This is the first segment to be recorded for 2013, and I thought I’d make it longer than usual, and list the add-ons that I consider essential.

For everyone, I recommend ArkInventory, AutoProfitX2, and BankStack. These three add-ons will help you keep your bags and bank organized, and turn junk items into a little jingle in your pockets. If your toon uses the …

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.1: Essential Pet Battle Add-ons

[Dec 14, 2012 | No Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

I am the Icesnake, and this is my Emporium.

Let’s look at some essential pet battle tools. This segment was suggested by Leogetz of Terenas.

PetTracker is a tool designed to help all kinds of trainers in their pet tracking and battling duties. Currently, it:

  • Displays the locations of all pets on the world map.
  • Tracks your progress of catching pets in your current zone.

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.1: Auto Questing Tools

[Dec 4, 2012 | No Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

I am the Icesnake, and this is my Emporium.

This time we’re looking at an addon which was recommended by Louis, aka Chaos5061. The add-on is Auto Questing Tools.

Auto Questing Tools, or AQT, will automatically accept quests; if you are below level 90, it accepts quests that grant experience, and for level 90 it simply accepts all quests. When you turn in quests, AQT will automatically complete the dialogue with the quest-giver. If you …

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.1: Damage Meters

[Nov 30, 2012 | No Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

I am the Icesnake and this is my Emporium.

Ever wonder what your Damage Per Second (DPS) adds up to? There are probably dozens of add-ons just waiting to tell you!

Skada Damage Meter is meant for the minmaxer who wants to know everything in detail. It’s highly modular, so you only use the bits you actually want.
Recount is the “traditional” DPS meter, keeping track of damage and heals for everyone in your group. …

[Nov 20, 2012 | No Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

I am the Icesnake, and this is my Emporium.

Do you use the Auction House? Ever? If you do, and you’re not using an add-on to make the AH easy to use, consider AuctionLite. AuctionLite makes buying and selling at the AH easy, helps you get the best prices for your items, shows vendor, auction, and disenchant prices, and lets you buy out multiple listings at one time.

Ever wonder how players get the gold …

Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.0.4 Segment 17; AttackNearestEnemy

[Oct 31, 2012 | 3 Comments] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

I am the Icesnake, and this is my Emporium. Stay awhile, and listen!

This segment is about an unusual add-on; one that you may use once and then uninstall, and still continue to benefit ffrom what it does.

AttackNearestEnemy creates a macro the first time you log onto a toon. The macro is tuned (no pun intended) to the character class of that toon, and placed in the macro section for that specific character. Once …

[Oct 29, 2012 | No Comment] by: Icesnake Frostfyre

I am the Icesnake, and you’re listening to my Add-on Emporium.

This segment is for those “resource users;” if your toon uses chi, mana, combo points, etcetera, or if you drive vehicles that use resources, Hear Kitty is for you. That’s H-E-A-R Kitty. This add-on plays a sound to let you know what’s happening with resources so you don’t have to glance away from your target.

Hear Kitty works for Druids, Rogues, Shaman, Priests, Hunters, …

“Expansion That’s New” – Warcraft Parody Song

[Sep 24, 2012 | Comments Off] by: Jason Zimmerman

When choosing a song to parody going into Mists of Pandaria, I felt that nothing captured the emotion of the player base better than Adele’s Someone Like You. There is sadness but yet optimism going into Mists of Pandaria.

Big thanks to our vocalist Lady Naga, Blizzard, and all the players who made the videos that I found on YouTube and mixed in.

Enjoy!

Mists of Pandaria Pre-Raid Gear For Healers

[Aug 28, 2012 | Comments Off] by: Jason Zimmerman

I’ve followed up my MoP Pre-Raid Tank list with this new list for healers.

This early collection of best-in-slot (BiS) pre-raid gear will get you started as soon as Mists of Pandaria is released.

As with the tanks, I’m sure there will be changes for healers as we go live, plus the addition of loot tables from World Bosses, but these lists are a great start.

I’ve compiled lists of pre-raid tank gear for Death Knights, Druids, Paladins and Warriors. Brewmaster Monk is still a work in progress. It seems like there is a shortage of quality Monk information available right now.

Pet Battles: Casual Fun or a Balancing Nightmare?

[Aug 20, 2012 | 2 Comments] by: Jason Zimmerman

When pet battles were first announced I didn’t give them much thought.

It seemed to me that they would simply be some casual fun when you didn’t feel like doing anything else.

In my mind creating pet battles was basically Blizzard’s way of saying, “Don’t worry about running out of things to do…here’s a new mini game.”

I admit I even thought they were a bit silly and pointless at first.

Over time I started …

Will Mists of Pandaria Scenario Bosses Make Players Suck Less?

[Aug 15, 2012 | Comments Off] by: Jason Zimmerman

One of the biggest complaints people had during the transition from Wrath of the Lich King to Cataclysm was that WOTLK made players suck.

Players got soft and lazy and stopped paying attention to things like boss mechanics and targeting the tank’s target.

Ya know, all the things you’re actually supposed to do in a dungeon.

Then Cataclysm came about and players sucked….badly. Heroic dungeons in a PuG were the equivalent of waterboarding. You’d gladly …
