Resource Site Spotlight – BankAlt.com

This past week on TIPOAA (The Incredible Podcast of Amazing Awesomeness) Mike and Turpster had an email from a listener who said that since “Whats the Mats” closed down (Whats the Mats was a database site for warcraft craftables) he or she had been looking for a site to replace it’s functionality. They gave BankAlt.com a try, and said that it has been updated for Cataclysm, and though the site is in beta, it looks to be a nicely working database focusing specifically on craftables in World of Warcraft.

There isn’t a great deal one could write on a site like this. What it does is streamlines the gargantuan database of World of Warcraft items and quests and the like, and presents to you your search answers limited to the materials needed for crafting items in game.

If you were a fan of “Whats the Mats” than you should certainly enjoy BankAlt.com

It is in beta still, but looks to be functioning properly. I haven’t tested it fully, in truth because I do not have any crafting skills to Cataclysm levels yet.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the screenshot is my bank alt, there are very few graphics on BankAlt.com that would work well as a screenshot for the article :)

Cheers!

Netherhood Welcome Wagon – Zoxy of Trading with Zoxy!

Hello Everyone!  I’d like you to join me in welcoming Zoxy from Trading With Zoxy!

Zoxy started playing WoW about halfway through Wrath of the Lich King.  Having come from EVE Online and being a prolific trader there, he decided that he wasn’t going to get into the Auction House game in WoW because he wanted something fresh and different in a game.  He played WoW for a bit, and then ventured off into LotRO – but the lure of Cataclysm brought him back.  When he returned to WoW he decided that he was going to turn the 3,000 gold he had on his account into 100,000 gold.

Zoxy decided that he wanted to offer feedback to the community on what gold methods were working for him and what were not.  Offering tips and tricks that he found useful – and also sharing things that didn’t work out quite so well.  Of course, what would an experiment be without chronicling the journey along the way? Including thoughts on what draws him into the gold making game.

If you are interested in making gold, you will find all sorts of resources from making gold with limited playtime to what kinds of things have been hot on the Auction House since Cataclysm’s release. He offers advice on several add-ons to help you work the Auction House. You will also find some great information on how to better understand your realm’s economy and on utilizing the mobile Auction House to maximize your auctions.

Zoxy tells us that we can expect more gold making tips and insights on his shenanigans as he continues to work his way towards mastering the Auction House!  I don’t know about you – but my (very stylish, yet very poor) bank alt is certainly looking forward to learning more!

Welcome to the Blogosphere, Zoxy!

Every Tuesday, Beruthiel from Falling Leaves and Wings is bringing you the Welcome Wagon, introducing new bloggers and great reads. If you know of a new blog to the scene or wish to get your name out there, please send an email to fallingleaves51@gmail.com, with the subject line “Welcome Wagon.” She’ll do her best to highlight as many as possible!

Resource Site Spotlight – Wowjuju

Like most of the articles I write for the RSS I like the attach a sufficient amount of personal experience to the resource. The personal experience I have with this site is unfortunately none, and that is unfortunate for me because in Wrath I began a quest to get exalted with every single Wrath faction, and I did, prior to the reputation gain buffs, with the only exception being The Explorers League, that I only had to Friendly prior to the buff, so that was the only reputation I was gaining in dungeon runs prior to entering ICC and working on Ashen Verdict.

What is unfortunate is that I did not know if this site prior to my rep grinds. Given this sites main focus being reputation and the gaining thereof, I am quite certain that any number of the guides here would have helped me tremendously.

At my current level of play in Cataclysm I am actually having a remarkably difficult time gaining reputation. The tabard system is still in effect, but I feel like I am struggling to make headway with the tabards alone, and I have not unlocked even a fraction of the daily quest lines because the VAST majority of my leveling was done in the LFD, and not in questing. I think the Vash’jir is the only zone in which I have completed more than 10 quests. Wowjuju is going to enable me to focus in on the reputation gains I need to make [emphasis need] in order to gear my Paladin properly to begin raiding.

Wowjuju is equipped with a feature that is seen in many resources, but with a new twist I have not seen prior. There is a character calculator, much like other sites, that pulls information from the armory; the difference is that Wowjuju focuses in only on reputations for the character. Not gearing, not item enhancements, not raid progression. It is so exquisitely simple that it necessitates appreciation.

Guides and articles abound for the achievements and gains of all the factions within World of Warcraft. Updates are frequent and with well written, concise articles.

Normally I would say here – “If you are interesting gaining reputation with any or all of the factions in World of Warcraft then head on over to Wowjuju” – but the thing is, everyone SHOULD be interesting in gaining reputation with at least the Cataclysm factions, because our gear and shoulder/head slot enchantments are directly tied into these factions, and even PvP’ers have a great deal to gain from faction reputation.

Therefore, go to Wowjuju. That’s it. Fairly simple right? (Or as our Canadian brethren would say – “Fairly simple, eh?”)

Cheers!
