I’ve been stockpiling herbs in preparation for picking up Inscription on Wrath Day (now, even sooner on Patch 3.0 Day).

I may have gone too far.

…when Wrath of the Lich King hits.
This is this week’s Shared Topic from Blog Azeroth, a question posed by Dechion of Dechion’s Place.
What Will I Be Doing On Wrath Day?
…Trying to update my mods.
No, Seriously…
I actually hope to have my UI all fixed and ready to go, testing it on the 3.0 PTR and on [...]

Inscription update for the day: it’s mostly still not implemented, so still no guide from me.
To be more accurate: a lot of recipes are now available from the trainer, from skill level 1 up to 400 at present. However, the materials for the recipes have not yet been tuned. Every glyph currently requires Moonglow Ink [...]

I notice I’ve had a lot of hits today from Google searches for Inscription guides – presumably fuelled by today’s announcement that Inscription will be available pre-Wrath Day.

Zul’Aman bear mounts from the timed chests are, as most people [...]

As a followup from my last post about new jewelcrafting dailies and patterns:

Dragon’s Eyes are purchasable from the Dalaran Jewelcrafting vendor, Tiffany Cartier, for one Dalaran Jewelcrafting Token each
Twenty-three rare gem cuts I discussed in the last post are [...]

In my recent introduction to jewelcrafting in WotLK I noted that there were a few missing stat combinations that we could expect future jewelcrafting cuts to fill. Read more for information on a number of new rare gem cuts, jewelcrafting [...]

Recently I talked about my indecision over how to have my cake and eat it too. I have since achieved enlightenment!
This was also a Blog Azeroth shared topic from two months ago! With all my indecision, though, I had no answers for it – until now.

What I’ve Decided

My main will drop Alchemy just before [...]

Note: this post contains information on Wrath of the Lich King, although it’s mostly mechanical and thus not hugely spoilery.

The most recent WotLK beta patch introduced a number of new Jewelcrafting recipes, showing us the Northrend equivalent of some very familiar Outland gems – as well as some new contenders.
Read on for details of Northrend’s [...]
