Qelric’s Apexis Crystals Guide

Apexis Crystals. Turns out these are actually good for something.

Master Rokk here. These darn crystals were becoming a pain in my side. Mainly because I was getting them as work order rewards and I just kept jamming them in my pocket, wondering if I should vendor them or just toss them in the trash.

Turns out that they are considered a form of currency in Draenor. Which is a relief, because my pockets were getting pretty heavy. I had to double cinch my belt just to keep my pants up. And you can’t deliver a crushing jade tornado with your pants down. Apparently the authorities don’t think too highly of that kind of shenanigans, even if it does happen to be your birthday and you were a little too full of the pandaren punch at the time.

Once again, Qelric the Undying was more than happy to whip up a video that explains exactly what these crystals can be used for. And while you watch the video, I’m going to empty my pockets and see what else I might have in there that I could use for currency.

Let’s see… Hair, leather scraps, a toenail for some strange reason. Anybody want to give me something for the toenail? Anyone? One toenail with what looks to be teeth marks OKAY THAT’S JUST DISGUSTING!

Qelric’s Talador Follower Guide

Followers. The grunts who run out and fetch garrison resources, gold, loot, and keep your herb garden and mines running smoothly. They are a necessary part of garrison life.

Master Rokk here, and if you’re like me, you’ve probably missed out on a great deal of content by trying to sprint through the content as quickly as possible. Pesky little things like quest lines which unlock followers. This can result in much work needing to be done, but not enough bodies to do it. Seriously, it’s not like I’m critiquing their resumes. Most of the followers I’ve picked up are ones that I’ve either beaten into submission, or gotten out of jail. Life imitates art I guess.

Qelric the Undying has been gracious enough to put together a few videos that will help locate some of these followers. Having just left Talador, I will most likely be going back to pick up a couple of these followers and beef up my roster. I’m looking at you, Pleasure Bot 8000!

But not, you know, looking-looking. I’m simply observing you – you know what, let’s just go to the video. Stop making this weird.

Qelric, once again a fantastic job in making my life easier. I can’t wait to get my hands on these followers!

Not literally, like putting my hands on… can we just end this here?

Metallica to Play at Blizzcon 2014

No Blizzcon

Fate. Look, I’m sorry I kicked your dog or whatever it is that I did to piss you off. You tease me with a Blizzcon ticket, then change my work schedule so I can’t attend. THEN you release Warlords of Draenor a week later, which still falls under my standby schedule and prevents me from playing at launch.

THEN you have the Nerdist himself, Chris Hardwick, host Blizzcon.

And now Qelric reports THIS.

Metallica? Nerdist? Blizzcon? Warlords of Draenor?

I hope this makes us even.

TGIF – Dinosaur Pet and Mount Farming


While transmog farming doesn’t overly appeal to me, pet farming tends to be a little more enjoyable. I don’t know why. Maybe I’ve just gotten lucky when I’ve been hunting for companion/battle pets. But this one I had no idea about. In fact, I didn’t even know the Isle of Giants existed at all. I decided to take a trip there just to see what it looked like. (It looks like giants, genius — Editor)

Now the strategy was to kill the humanoid lizard men. Of course, once I got there and managed to aggro a few of the actual elite dinosaurs, I noticed I was picking up bones. Turns out that by killing dinos, you can actually get yourself a dinosaur mount of your very own. Not great for selling, but if you’re going to be on the island anyway it might not be a bad idea to take a shot at some of the other creatures that roam the land.

In conclusion: if you are on the Isle of Giants, KILL ALL THE THINGS!!1!

Flying in Warlords of Draenor

Flying in Warlords of Draenor has been a touchy subject. By touchy I mean players have been sobbing like Old Granny Smith at a wedding. When it was first announced that there would be no flying, people acted like this had never happened before in the history of World of Warcraft. People tend to forget that this happens every expansion. The expansion goes live, people are forced to leg out their quests, and by the first major update patch there is an opportunity to get flying once again.

As reported by Qelric, Bashiok has somewhat addressed this and replies with an ETA of Patch 6.1 before flying becomes available.

Personally I think some of those characters out there could use the road work. Starting to look a little soft there folks. Too many mana cakes, not enough exercise. Get busy people!
