Ambassador Coldarra

I worked on my DeathKnight’s home city factions since he was close to exalted on all of them.

He now goes by the title Ambassador (from earning [Ambassador of the Alliance] today). Like my Priest before him, all he needs to do is earn Exalted status with the Argent Crusade and he’ll have his Crusader title/achievement.

I think Ambassador is a good title for him — he’ probably stick with that even after earning Crusader. I mainly want the achievement complete so he can continue to do all available Argent Daily quests once patch 3.2 hits.

Dualboxing the Simple Way

“Multiboxing is a term used to denote one user playing multiple accounts simultaneously.”

The wonderful world of Multiboxing is not for the faint of heart. However, running two WoW clients on the same PC with two monitors is much more manageable!

A friend of mine is kind enough to loan me his DeathKnight (or any character) while he’s AFK.  So I have to log on and abuse…erm–use his DK to clear some Stockades with my latest alt: Mage! I’ve grinded my 3rd alt from level 15 up to 24 (although I did quest for about one level in between).

My computer setup is simple (not a true multibox setup in my opinion):

Two monitors – Primary – 23” Widescreen LCD at 1920x1080 & Secondary – 19” Widescreen LCD at 1440x900.  Running in the center is my PC which is equipped with a AMD Phenom quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM and a GeForce 9800 GT 1024MB graphics card.  It’s not the most powerful thing out there but it definitely gets the job done.

If I had a second WoW account and wanted to truly multibox (using multiple PCs) then I have the software and WoW.com articles at my disposal to do so — That day has not yet come. 
Until then, I’ll run two (or more) WoW clients on the same PC and use my two kick ass monitors to back me up for a full view on both games at all times.

King(s) of the Fire Festival

Well, today marks the end of 2009’s Midsummer Fire Festival (6/21 – 7/5).

I must say that I’m glad the festival is a whole two weeks.  The start of my week-long family vacation this year was also the start of the festival in WoW. So the first thing I did when I arrived home last weekend was to go through and do the entire world event on my main character.

After completing  [The Flame Warden] on my warlock I realized that he made at least 750g or more from doing the event!  From there I thought about my two level 80 alts and how horrible there current titles (Jenkins & Stormwind) were.

So it began, I logged over to my DeathKnight the next day and started traveling the world to every bonfire, just like my main character did. After completing the event and earning Coldarra’s new title over the course of two days I then thought, “I made like 1000g and achieved a new title!”

It was time for the 2nd alt, Mazer then completed the event which I did in one day’s time.  Unlike my other two level 80s, Mazer leveled a lot through instances so he had not traveled much of the world.  So in the process of getting him a new title, I also picked up any flight paths he was missing. (DeathKnights are created with all Eastern Kingdoms & Kalimdor flight points with the exception of Ghostlands.)

So what did I do this week? I worked towards and completed [The Flame Warden] on three level 80s!
