WoW First Aid Guide

Being able to heal yourself is one very desirable skill in Warcraft and therefore one of the best secondary professions to have is First Aid. The following WoW First Aid guide will share some tips and advice on this profession.

First Aid is fantastic for any class, even healers, because of its potential to reduce your down time. This profession will also make you a great ally in any group because you’ll be able to heal others. First Aid utilizes various bandages as a tool in healing. These bandages are made from a variety of cloths that you get as you level up. The higher level cloths will have better healing power. This WoW first aid guide won’t go into actually making and using the bandages. The list that follows is of the various cloths, their skill level and healing power. As you’ll see heavy bandages heal better.

o Linen: Starting skill level, with a 66 Healing power and (114 healing power for Heavy, meaning heavy bandages) over 6 sec

o Wool: Find a trainer once you’re at level 115, Healing power is 161 (301 for Heavy) over 7 seconds.

o Silk: Find a trainer at skill level 150, Healing power is 400 (640 Heavy) over 8 seconds.

o Mageweave: Find a trainer at skill 210, Healing power is 800 (1104 Heavy) over 8 seconds.

o Runecloth: Find a trainer at skill 260, Healing power is 1360 (2000 Heavy) over 8 seconds.

o Netherweave: For this cloth you’ll need to learn it from a book at skill 330, Healing power is 2800 (3400 Heavy) over 8 seconds.

o Frostweave: You’ll need to train with a Grand Master Trainer at skill level 350, healing power is 4800 (5800 Heavy) over 8 seconds.

Heavy bandages, as I mentioned earlier, have better healing power and require you to use 2 pieces of cloth as opposed to 1, which makes a regular bandage. As far as the books I mentioned for learning how to make Netherweave and other cloths, they can be found either in the wild or bought. I’ll talk a little now in the WoW first aid guide about leveling your first aid skill. One book you’ll need for leveling through skill levels 125-225 is the “Under Wraps” book. It’ll cost you 1 gold and can be found in Stromgarde Ruins for Alliance characters and bought from Deneb Walker. Or, for Horde, it can be bought from Balai Lok’Wein in Brakenwall Village, Dustwallow Marsh.

Leveling through levels 225-300 will require a special quest. For this quest your character level needs to be 35 and your skill needs to be at level 225. For the quest, Alliance faction should seek out Doctor Gustaf Van Howzen in Theramore Isle. Horde should seek out Doctor Gregory Victor in Hammerfall which is in the Arathi Highlands.

To become a Master in First Aid, skill 300-375, you’ll need another book. Alliance can find it at the Temple of Telhamat, and Horde can find it at Falcon Watch. The Netherweave book I mentioned earlier can also be found here.

As a conclusion to the WoW first aid guide I’d like to mention some quick things about healing. You can only heal while standing still and not sustaining any damage. If you end up taking some damage or moving while healing then you keep the healing you’ve gotten but any further healing stops. Lastly, you can’t cause damage to others while you’re healing. To get around this limitation one tip is to stun your enemies momentarily to give you time to heal. This is best done by using Heavy bandages.

Top WOTLK Acherus the Ebon Hold Guide – Wrath of the Lich King Strategy & Leveling Guides

The gaming world has been abuzz ever since Blizzard Entertainment released the news that Death Knights will be playable characters in the World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King expansion. As a Hero class, the Death Knights will be available to gamers as long as they have a level 55 or above character of any race. Whether Alliance or Horde, all Death Knights would also start out in the same area known as Acherus: The Ebon Hold. If you want to be ahead of your game, and have an advantage over the other players, then learning everything you can about Death Knights and even their starting area might help.

Acherus: The Ebon Hold is a floating necropolis that once belonged to the Horde. The Ebon Hold itself is found in a region of Northrend known as the Scarlet Enclave and the hold floats above New Avalon, a small town. Previously, the Ebon Hold was one of the Lich King’s domains. However, when legendary paladin Tirion Fording won over the Lich King in the epic battle for Light’s Hope Chapel, Ebon Hold became the domain or headquarters of the Knights of the Ebon Hold.

When you arrive in Acherus, your Death Knights would still be under the Scourge’s command. One of the first tasks that you will have to do as a Death Knight would actually be to battle the Scarlet Crusaders in New Avalon. This would be followed by several other quests that would help you get familiar with your Death Knight powers. Also, once your Death Knight appears there, you don’t need to draw your sword and prepare for combat since Acherus is a sanctuary, meaning no player vs player battle will ever happen there. To know more about the quests, you only need to seek out the NPCs in Acherus: The Ebon Hold. They are the following:

* Baron Rivendare – the Death Knight’s level 62 Elite Boss

* Highlord Darion Mograine – the leader of the new Death Knights who vowed to annihilate the Lich King.

* Instructor Razuvious – the Death Knight’s trainer. You can go to him if you wish to know more about your newfound powers.

* The Lich King – the Dark One himself will give you your first quest.

There are also several other people that you might wish to speak to once you get to Acherus: The Ebon Hold. Lady Alistra, Amal’thazad, and Lord Thorval are all trainers that will help you hone your skills. If you need refreshment, supplies, new weapons, or repairs, there are people like Corpolous, Gangrenus, and Master Siegesmith Corvus to help you. The key is to explore the city as much as you can and test your powers as often as possible. There are a lot of things to learn about your Death Knight and Acherus is a great place to start your education.

MapleStory Guide – Bigfoot

A relatively powerful boss added in the Crimsonwood Keep patch in ’08. A pain of a thing to kill, but really not too difficult when done right, even so; still a pain.

Boss info: Bigfoot is a pretty simple boss, it spawns in about 13 (roughly) different maps in Crimsonwood Forest. It has no real abilities and nothing much to look out for… except its ridiculously high touch damage. This beast will hit you for upwards of 12,000 damage, though funnily enough its magic “stomp” attack is completely harmless. It has several frames where it is “invincible” meaning your attacks will miss it completely, irritating, I know, but with that comes it’s biggest weakness.

If Bigfoot is pushed to either edge of the map, and I mean the very edge, it will get somewhat stuck. After you hit it, it’ll begin it’s knock back animation (assuming you hit it hard enough) which is unusually long, once it finally gets over it, it’ll be facing away from you; off the screen. You have about 1 second here to knock it back again before it comes stampeding into you. If you maintain the knock back it’ll stay stuck, turning it into a joke of a boss. Makes it very easy to get through its 32,000,000HP. On that note, it also gives a lot of EXP considering its HP, making it a rather sought after boss (mostly for leeching unfortunately), aside from that, it has no valuable drops aside from its toe, used for the deputy pendant quest.

Maple Story Bowman Guide – Bowman Training Guide

A Bowman is the ranged class in MapleStory. They use bows and crossbows to deliver high amounts of damage to their enemies.

The Bowman’s main stat is Dexterity which provides him with very high accuracy. This will allow them to be the only class to hunt monsters that are a much higher level than themselves.

The Bowman character class gets a very unique skill which allows them to knock their enemies back which will allow the Bowman to stay at range and unleash his fury on them.

Bowman is a low populated class, meaning there are not many of them on most servers compared to other MapleStory character classes.

The downfall to a Bowman is that they take a while to train and level until you reach the 3rd Job Advancement.

As a Bowman, your damage will be very inconsistent while leveling until you get some of the higher end class skills.

While a Bowman is one of the most unique classes to play, their full potential will not be shown until they reach the higher levels in MapleStory.

This is how you can advance as a Bowman character class:

Beginner > Archer > Hunter (with more job advancements)

Beginner > Archer > Crossbow Man (with more job advancements)

If you are tired of playing with the other Maple Story characters such as Thief, you may want to have a change of character class and try your hand at being a Bowman!
