Darkmoon and Professions

Note: as of 8.1, the Darkmoon Faire profession quests will now give skill ups for the BfA professions.

However you will need to have at least 75 points in the classic profession!

You can’t just roll a char, boost to 110, learn the Kul’Tiran professions and then get +5 skillups from the Darkmoon Faire!

Darkmoon Faire for +5 to professions!

Mount farming 101 – master post

So far my most popular post has been related to soloing raids – something I’ve mostly done for mounts.

However that post has a problem – it assumes that you’ve done the encounters at the level they were intended for and thus know the mechanics which can be ignored. And those which can’t.

Cooking: cheesecake

I’ve been meaning to make cheesecake for a while; never made it before so this is a trial run more than anything!

Seemed to come out okay, although there are definitely things I’d do differently next time.

Cooking: GF toad in the hole

Made a gluten free toad in the hole last night which was rather tasty!

Toad in the hole” does sound a bit odd – in the UK its sausages in a batter which rises. According to my US colleagues, they’d be expecting a fried piece of bread with a hole in the middle, into which an egg is broken into!

This is the UK version – although I’ve been known to make such bread + egg things in the past as they’re quite tasty. So long as you leave the egg yolk runny!

Classic vs Retail

Classic WoW happened and it seems to be quite popular, especially if Twitch viewership is anything to go by. It’s gaining people from private servers, players after a nostalgia trip back to ~15 years ago and newer players who’re wondering what all the fuss is about.

What can we learn about retail from classic
