But now, the Gear Advisor starts popping up, trying to get me to put the old 360 version Ring #1 into Ring #2's slot, since iLvl 360 is better than 350. Except I can't do that, because of the "Unique-equipped" modifier. So I click "Cancel". And then the window continues to pop up after every action my character takes, over and over and over, until I get rid of the old ring by vendoring, scrapping, or destroying it.
Drustvar is far and away the hardest Alliance zone, which is exactly why you want to do it first. If you have legendary items, they’ll still be usable, and if you don’t, this zone will still be easier early on than it will be later. Drustvar is also extremely fast and will let you jump out ahead of your competition in other zones, which means fewer players around to take your quest objectives.
The Hearthstone has a cooldown of 30 minutes, but there’s a guild perk called Hasty Hearth that shaves the time by half, giving you a strong incentive to join a guild. Yes, even if it’s some random guild that invites you without warning. It may feel odd to join people you don’t know, but if they have Hasty Hearth (and most guilds do), joining can save you a lot of legwork.
This section will be a brief section to look at the talent advisors in both Dugi’s guide & Zygor’s guide. For new players having a talent advisor is a perfect feature, as you probably don not really know what talents are good and what talents are not. Even for us experienced players; rolling an alt might be difficult at first as we have to research good talent builds for leveling.
Dugi’s Guide has released their Cataclysm bonus which is an in game talent advisor. Finally and actual bonus worth talking about; or so I thought. Once on the inside of Dugi’s Guide members area the truth was revealed. The talent advisor bonus is just the 3rd party addon “Talenteds”! Using TomTom add on for navigation is already a large negative in my books, now offering a free addons as a bonus. Dugi, Dugi, Dugi.. – not cool. I’m tempted to take another point away from Dugi but that would be my personal opinion.
Another part I like about Dugi’s leveling guide is the ease of use. You’ll be given the guide in different forms so that you can find the one that fits you. For those that like to have a printed guide alongside them he provides you with a printable and image heavy version of the guide. A very powerful system Dugi uses is his in-game leveling addon that permits you to play without having to take your focus with the game itself. The addon adds a tiny window for your World of Warcraft game that tells you what area of the guide you’re at and how to proceed next.
Heirlooms are special pieces of armor that level up with your character, so they have stats that are always respectable for your character’s level (up to level 110). Heirlooms that fit the head, shoulder, chest, legs, and back armor slot offer an experience bonus. The total bonus is 45 percent if you have them all. It’s also possible to acquire a ring that adds another 5 percent, but you must win a fishing contest acquire it, and that can take some time.
