October 2008: WOTLK Guides, Karma System, New Videos and More!

Jame's picture

What a crazy month it has been. The Wow-Pro community is booming. Dozens of new users register everyday and start to write guides, help other people out and post very useful comments. To keep track of all that, I'll be posting a newsletter every month (or maybe every week in the future), to summarize every major thing happening on Wow-Pro:


General Announcements

  • The Karma System is now in place, users can gain ranks and priviledges. Find out how: Here.
  • Wow-pro recently joined the GamerDNA Alliance, which means we finally got rid of our Google Ads. That means no more advertise for gold sellers or other things the wow community frowns upon. The new advertise we have is 100% safe and legal.
  • GamerDNA will also be hosting our website from now on, which means it should be much more stable, even when the Wrath of the Lich King traffic rush hits us.
  • The website will be fully revamped in the coming months, it will get a brand new design and a lot of new features will be added, to make it even more fun and rewarding to be part of the wow-pro community.

Community Announcements

Congratulations to Shikamaru for being the first wow-pro member to attain the Revered rank!

Seems so

It appears so! It's kinda strange, but it would be nice if this was started back up again.

War is not about who is right, it is about who is left.

Link Broken

The link for the 58 to 60 Death Knight speed leveling guide is giving me an access denied error.

Oops, thanks for the

Oops, thanks for the warning. It should be back now. Sticking out tongue

Many thanks, and a question

First of all, I'd like to say thank you Jame, and Snowflake, for this site. Jame's Leveling Guides have helped me more than I can say, and if it weren't for them, I probably wouldn't be playing WoW anymore. Keep up the good work guys. Now to my question. When WotLK comes out, I'm thinking of finishing the Outlands guide first, seeing as I'm still in BEM, haven't touched Netherstorm or SM (thanks to your guide ;] ) The way I see it, I'll be level 72 + going into Northrend, will miss the initial traffic as people rush into the new zone, and have lots of quests left over at 80 to make money with. Do you think this is a good idea? Also, I was wondering if you knew anything about mounts in WotLK, is there a cost for cold-weather flying, multi-person mounts, etc. Sorry for the long post, but I hope you can get back to me. Once again, thank you very much for your amazing guides, and keep up the awesome work! : )

Very glad to hear that I

Very glad to hear that I helped you keep enjoying wow Smiling

About finishing Outland quests before moving on to Northrend. It's a great idea, it's what I do on my own characters. You just get so much more gold that way, and the whole leveling process is also much easier, you're basically killing stuff which is green to you all the time this way.

So yes, go for it, definitely.

About the flying mounts. Last time I checked:

Cold Weather Flying: 1000g
3-person mount: 18000g

Hope it helps!

Another Question, Sorry =P

Very helpful, thanks. But 18000g... Wow. I thought of another question right after I posted the last one. If I were to go to Northrend to get some gear upgrades, and then go back to Outlands to finish up, is there any place in your 70-72 guide you think would be a good place to get up to before going back? I'm an arms warrior, if that helps at all.
Thanks in advance!

Yea, just go to Borean

Yea, just go to Borean Tundra and follow my guide until you obtain those items:

Mightstone Breastplate
Mightstone Pauldrons
Mightstone Helm
Mightstone Legplates

They are done in the early parts of the zone and there's also a nice weapon reward you get while doing those.

Not to bug you with more things to do (since I know you are probably plenty busy getting your guides ready for the 13th), but were you still planning on posting that Karma ranking?

Sorry for the comments that were deleted in the process, I had to repost the newsletter with our new module, which also sends an e-mail to all subscribed users.

Great Idea

I like the introduction of a news letter, it's a great way for old and new members alike to see what is happening on the site.
