Bind On Equip

Episode:238

Date:5th october 2014

 

If you are new to Bind on Equip….Welcome.

If you’re wondering what the fuss is about, we’re not sure either, We are a wow podcast, where we talk about us as wow players and how we play the game.

and now as the sun sets on Pandaria we invite you inside the game with us as we reminisce about the good and bad old days as BOE takes you both ways in the snow!

 

 

Yes we’ve assembled a team and we are working through the instances old school Vanilla wow style:no heirlooms, teleporting,  instaqueues, riding before 40, flying before 70, or flying in Northrend with the twist of using the newest class to the game, Monks!

In the house this time around we have

Myself, Wembli

as always the Wych and the lovely Tempeste,

and joining us Berat, Zooe and Kai.

How are we guys?

 

 

So last week we did…bfd

On the grill this week, we are working through…a once off night of looking for dungeon.

News, Observations, Opinion & Discussion topics:

 

Warlords of Draenor – Proving Grounds

Today we are taking a look at the tweaks that have been made to the Warlords of Draenor version of proving grounds.

 

  • A few scaling changes have been made:
    • Enemies now scale based on your character’s level.
    • Enemies now scale up or down based on your item level, down to a minimum of item level 615.
    • These changes, along with many of the other Warlords of Draenor changes, should help specs that were previously underperforming due to having their item level scaled down in Mists of Pandaria.
  • The Mists of Pandaria Proving Grounds achievements are now Legacy achievements. Be sure to finish them before Patch 6.0.2!
  • A new set of identical achievements have been added for Warlords of Draenor.
  • Running Heroic Dungeons through the LFD tool requires you to have the Silver achievement or better. You can still form your own group and go to the dungeon without it.
  • Completing a Bronze level achievement will give you a rare item level 610 weapon, which is a nice and easy weapon to get for alts that don’t have one of the Garrosh Heirlooms, which scale to item level 620.
  • A new location, new trials, and other improvements are still on the list of things that would be nice to do in a future patch.

 

Warlords of Draenor – Bonus Rolls
Today we are taking a look at some of the ways to earn bonus rolls in Warlords of Draenor.

With Patch 6.0.2 only a couple weeks away, don’t forget to start collecting some Lesser Charms for item upgrades or uncapped turn ins for Siege of Orgrimmar bonus rolls if you still need them. You can find other Patch 6.0 reminders in our previous post.

We looked at the first way recently with the Bunker / War Mill perk that grants you a free bonus roll every week, but there are a few other ways to earn rolls.

The second method of earning bonus rolls is the two rare garrison missions that reward them. Keep in mind these are Rare missions, so you won’t see them constantly. Rukhmar and Drov the Ruiner both reward one Seal of Tempered Fate.

The third method to earn bonus rolls are turn in quests. The second and third time you use a certain method in a week it will cost double of what it did the last time.

Apexis Crystal (1000 / 2000 / 4000) – Players can earn at 1000 per day through a type of daily quest in your garrison, another 1000 from an Ashran daily quest, along with some from work orders and other sources. These are also used to purchase armor that is upgradeable to item level 655, which is the same as Normal level raid loot.

Gold (500 / 1000 / 2000) – Keep in mind that gold is somewhat easier to earn in Warlords of Draenor, as it is taking the role of Valor.

Garrison Resources (300 / 600 / 1200) – There are many sources of Garrison Resources. Your garrison gives you some every day, missions can reward some, the Lumber Mill can provide some, and there are many other sources. After your buildings are built and upgraded, you may have spare Garrison Resources that can be used for these quests or converted into Trade Goods.

Honor Points (500 / 1000 / 2000) – Along with all of the old sources of Honor, Ashran and other PvP activities provide several new opportunities to earn Honor.
