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:
Compare the quality of pictures
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,

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.

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
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:

Video Credit: Courtesy of World of Warcraft via Youtube

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?

Patch 6.1 - Mystic Runesaber Mount


Here kitty kitty
On January 28th, 2015 the World of Warcraft Facebook page posted a sneak peek of an upcoming new mount with the words, 'Here kitty, kitty'. Speculation over the net proposed it may have been related to the Heroes of the Storm game. However that's not the case. The Mystic Runesaber mount will be available for purchase via the World of Warcraft ingame shop.

The flavor text on the mount spell is: Infused with arcane power, the Mystic Runesber has long been hidden by chaotic nether energies. Recently they have emerged from the shadows in search of ley lines to sate their thirst for magic.

Sleek in design and fitted with magical runes the Mystic Runesaber is something I definitely want in my mount collection. My only obstacle is convincing my husband that it's absolutely necessary to have it before it goes on sale...

(¸.·´ (¸.* World of Warcraft Quick Tips

Welcome to All My Alts quick tips. A new section that will hopefully help to ease or enhance your World of Warcraft game.

Back in February 2014 I posted a collection of Lovely Charm Spots I in my article, Warcraft Quick Tips: 3 Best Lovely Charm Farm Spots. Now that our toons are at level 100 in Warlords of Draenor we have to find new spots.
Using a /kiss emote while Kwee Q. Peddlefeet is targeted will give you the Smitten buff, increasing your health by 200.
Before you begin farming head over to Kwee Q. Peddlefeet a goblin that is dressed up as Cupid. Talk to him and snag a Lovely Charm Collector's Kit. He can be found in any of the major cities. Seriously just look for the fatty goblin wearing a shifty toga.

Next make use of a macro to create the bracelets out of the Lovely Charm. Bring up your macro box and create new. Name it and then input the following:
/use Lovely Charm

Note: The bracelets do not stack but the charms do up to 40. I advise leaving the creation of the bracelets last so that your bags aren't stuffed full early.

Let's get started with our grinding:
Reeg'akan Acidback - Coords: 66.6, 31.6 
Reeg'akan Acidback - Level 91 Mob
Location: FrostFire Ridge at 66.6, 31.6

You have to run over the eggs inside the cave to make them spawn. They have a short respawn timer.
Broodmother Reeg'ak - a rare spawn can also be found here.
Stingtail Worker - Coords: 58.8, 45.8 
Stingtail Worker - Level 96 Mob
Location: Spires of Arak at 58.8, 45.8

Besides being killed for spawning the rare spawn, Sunderthorn, these npcs are very easy to kill with area of effect abilites and they have a very fast respawn time. They spawn near two trees at a high height.
Stoneshard Grub - Coords: 52.2, 71
Stoneshard Grub - Level 92 Mob
Location: Gorgronnd at 52.2, 71

4-pack locations:
50,71
51, 70
51,72
52,71

These grubs are the ones we kill to spawn the rare spawn Hive Queen Skrikka. They
spawn in four large groups and at a fast clip.
Moonshell Crab - Coords: 30.6, 10.6
Moonshell Crab - Level 90 Mob
Location: Shadowmoon Valley at 30.6, 10.6

Out of the way in Shadowmoon Valley makes these critters a low farmed area due to their decent spawn rate. If you have a bodyguard the Moonshell crabs do grant reputation. If you're a skinner it's a great spot for farm Raw Beast scraps.
Carnivorous Squirrel - Coords: 37.2, 23.0
Carnivorous Squirrel - Level 90 Mob
Location: Shadowmoon Valley at 37.2, 23.0

These squirrels spawn in two packs of 10 and they only have 1700 hp. Due to their ease of access this may be a highly farmed area. Also, in their cave you will see a Bubbling Cauldron which contains a boiling squirrel; a rare ilevel 516 offhand item.

Note: As of Nov. 20, these critters have been hotfixed to no longer grant bodyguard reputation.
Heroic Scarlet Monastry - Forlorn Cloister section
Zombified Corpses via the Piles of Corpses - Level 90 Elite Mobs
Location: Heroic Scarlet Monastry

The object here is ro run over the six Piles of Corpses to spawn waves of continuous Zombified Corpses.  Kill off any Scarlet Centurion or Scarlet Flamethrower trash around the piles. Take great care to not destroy the Piles of Corpses otherwise the zombies won't spawn!

This spot is really the best as you don't have to compete with others and if you LoS(Line of Sight) the mobs of Zombified Corpses then they will stream toward you at a steady rate. All you have to do is avoid killing the Piles of Corpses for this to work.



I hope this guide helps you on your grinding spree for #LovelyCharms!
