(¸.·´ (¸.* Snapshots for March 2015 - SELFIEs around WoW

Hi everyone,

it's been a long while since I've been able to sit down and share a few snapshots that I've taken during my advenetures in Azeroth and beyond. I have a ton to share, but today, I'll focus on a few snaps while using the SELFIE camera toy from World of Warcraft.
Akama and Vixen
My elemental shaman Vixen traveled to Black Temple to hunt for the new pets. I found that she liked taking pictures with just about anyone that would stand still. Here, she's taking a selfie with Akama. He's a pretty interesting fellow once you get past the tentacles and derpy face.
Hm.. hello sickle of death?
Turns out that Akama is camera shy. He blushed(as much as a broken can?!) and put his sickle in front of the camera.

Vixen: No selfie then, Mr. Akama?

Akama: B-baka, don't take my picture! 
Illdian was not so shy
The next target was Illidan. Talk about a camera hog. He wanted to be in the whole frame.

Vixen: Move it, I won't put a crotch shot here. This is a family friendly site!

Illidan: *unzips pants* You are not prepa---

SFX: **Cue sounds of lightning bolts coupled with girly screams of a male Night Elf dying.**
Say hello to Draconis, my husband's character
My husband decided to visit my garrison to take advantage of my level 3 storehouse complete with bank, guild bank, and tmog/void storage. Vixen wanted a picture with her main squeeze but he was a bit stubborn to convince.
Yep, he has that 'barbaric grunt' thing going on
Ever notice that the male draenei really don't have a happy face despite being portrayed as all happy go lucky? Their facial expressions are stoic as heck.
Evil husbando is evil :<
Luckily Vixen survived to live another day. ^.^ 

Thanks for viewing!
Happy playing from

World of Warcraft Quick Tips: New Herb Milling Macro

World of Warcraft Quick Tips: New Herb Milling Macro

Welcome to All My Alts quick tips. A brief but potent section that will hopefully help to ease or enhance your World of Warcraft game. Let's get started:
The Garrison Herb Garden
Back in Mists of Pandaria a player was able to use a simple /use macro to be able to mill their herbs. Along the road to Warlords of Draenor a few lines of code were changed. Now, if you use the old /use macro it will not allow you to mill past a stack of herbs that doesn't have exactly 5 in it. For those that do not use addons alike TSM destroy it can be frustrating.

However, there is a quick and easy save. Bring up your macro window by typing in /macro in your window and pressing enter. It should bring up the macro window.

Next we will make two macros. The first macro will be pressed once because it simply starts the script. Then you press the second macro repeatedly to continue milling to your hearst content.

Note: Make sure to name the macros just alike the bolded text and copy & paste the following code as exactly as shown:

/run function FnH() for i=0,4 do for j=1,GetContainerNumSlots(i) do local t={GetItemInfo(GetContainerItemLink(i,j) or 0)} if t[7]=="Herb" and select(2,GetContainerItemInfo(i,j))>=5 then return i.." "..j,t[1] end end end end

/run local f,l,n=AuM or CreateFrame("Button","AuM",nil,"SecureActionButtonTemplate") f:SetAttribute("type","macro") l,n=FnH() if l then f:SetAttribute("macrotext","/cast Milling\n/use "..l) SetMacroItem("Milling2",n) end
/click AuM

Once you do, you'll be able to continue milling from one stack of herbs to another without being stopped by less than 5 bundles of herbs.

Happy playing!

WoW Quick Tips: Screenshots

World of Warcraft Quick Tips: Taking better Screenshots

Welcome to All My Alts quick tips. A new section that will hopefully help to ease or enhance your World of Warcraft game. Let's get started:
JPEG quality needs to be decent for great pics
Back in the old days of #WoW the screenshots a player took were in the TGA format. Nowadays the game uses a JPEG format but at a very low quality ratio. Although this was done to save space on your hard-drive the result is less than stellar screenshots(and now, S.E.L.F.I.E.S).

Going back to TGA
To revert back to TGA(which is a lossless quality, and very large file size) input the following ito your console. The console is where you type!

Copy and paste the following:
/console screenshotFormat tga

Press Enter.

The change will take place on the next screenshot  that you take. Keep in mind that S.E.L.F.I.E.S pictures will not upload to Twitter. This is because Twitter only allows certain file types of which TGA is not accepted.

Going back to High quality JPEG

Type or copy/paste the following into your console:
/console screenshotFormat jpg 
/console screenshotQuality 10 

Press Enter.

The number "10" represents the JPEG quality. In this case, it's the highest. The lowest is quality "1" and the quality that the game uses currently is "3".

Back to Default JPEG quality
So if you want to revert to the default quality then type or copy/paste the following:
/console screenshotFormat jpg 
/console screenshotQuality 3

Press Enter.

And that's it! Keep in mind that TGA pictures do not upload to Twitter. The command needs to be entered only once. Unless you change your game WTF folder or un-install the game  then you will have to reapply the codes. Until then the changes need only be applied once.

Happy playing,
-All My Alts

Pandaren Heirlooms

Pandaren Heirlooms

A fierce cuddly
At last! Thanks to the new Heirloom system in Patch 6.1 all starter Pandaren have access to heirlooms. No longer are newbie pandas forced to suffer through the entire starter zone without an edge to not only their DPS but also to their leveling experience.
Heirloom tab. Hurray!
However please note that a Pandaren player cannot use the new Heirloom mount from the achievement nor use the PvP trinkets. It remains to be seen if this will be fixed at a later date.
Go ninja panda, go!
Despite the small quirks mentioned above, it is still awesome for players whom want to roll a new Pandaren and  go through the starting zone quicker.

Happy playing from:

Ashran Changes: Patch 6.1

Ashran Changes in Patch 6.1

Want Conquest points? Farm Events
1.) There is now a ten minute delay between battles after Grand Marshal Tremblade or High Warlord Volrath has been defeated (down from 30 minutes).

2.) Grand Marshal Tremblade and High Warlord Volrath no longer award Conquest Points when defeated.

3.) Ashran's queuing system received substantial changes to reduce wait times.

4.) Event objectives now award 100 Conquest Points (down from 125).

5.) Rare creatures and NPCs now drop 40-50 Artifact Fragments (down from 60-80).

6.) Guards in Ring of Conquest now drop 6-8 Artifact Fragments (down from 8-11).

7.) Ashmaul Pearls and Ghost Truffles have been removed. Players can now buy potions from Crafticus Mindbender (Alliance) and Dazzerian (Horde) for 10 Artifact Fragments each.

8.) Kowalski's Music Box now has a 15-minute cooldown (down from 1 hour).

9.) Scroll of Mass Invisibility, Scroll of Replenishment, and Scroll of Town Portal has been removed.

10.) Wand of Death, Wand of Mana Stealing, and Wand of Neutralization has been removed.

Current Bug: At the moment players cannot be invited to a raid via chat. It is a bug which was confirmed via Twitter by a developer. However, fixing this bug will require a realm restart.

Personally I'm not sure where the direction of this battleground is going. I can see that the new changes will throw both factions into more contact and off the main road. However by reducing Ashran to 100 Conquest Points per event it has become a very inefficient way to earn Conquest Points  This may push PVP players to do more Arenas/RBGs but if that's the case then what purpose does Ashran truly serve?

Patch 6.1 - Coming February 24

Patch 6.1 - Coming February 24
Garrison World Boss Invasions
World of Warcraft via Youtube published on Feb 17, 2015:

The Draenor campaign continues February 24 with systems and content updates to fuel your battle against the Iron Horde. Visit http://www.WorldofWarcraft.com for up to date news and information about Patch 6.1, and other upcoming features and announcements.

Watch the trailer for a full overview of what's to come:

Personally I'm excited for the new skins for Blood Elves as well as the heirloom tab. The Twitter integration is a fun idea and I think that the selfie camera toy will add a bit of hilarity to various screenshots. It'll be interesting to see how the Garrison changes work out.

On the other side of the coin there are some that see this as a dull non-content patch. The idea of Twitter integration with a new Darkmoone Faire race isn't appealing in the least. Also, some players believe that Patch 6.1 is actually the things they had to put on hold due the delayed launch of Warlords of Draenor.

What do you think of Patch 6.1?
Thanks for reading,
All My Alts
