battleid Blizzard has just tweeted about their new plan Battle ID. The idea was first broadcast at Blizzcon 09 with the ability to connect and chat to friends even if they was on a completely different game. The battle ID includes ….

  • Your Real ID friends will appear under their real-life names on your friends list.
  • with Real ID, friends can now chat cross-game, cross-realm, and cross-faction across all supported Blizzard games.
  • Broadcast a short status message for all of your Real ID friends to see, whether you want to issue a call-to-arms or let your friends know about an important change of plans.
  • When you agree to become Real ID friends with another player, both of you will automatically see all of the other’s characters on your friends list.

So is it worth it? yes, this seems to be a nice update that should not increase lag nor FPS, not much can currently been said until we can test it. Keep you eyes out on WoWGuideOnline.com for your fill of delicious wow information and the best wow guides around!

Beginner’s professions guide to: Overview of professions



This is a new artical im guiding new/old players to maxamising and making the best out of your selected professions. Please feel free of stop following this guide is you want. I don’t have any current plan on when I am going update the next “Beginner’s professions guide” but I hope to get each out every week.

Now starting from a new persons perspective, you just entered World of Warcraft and your wondering how to make gold to buy new Gear, Talents or your mount. you can easily do this buy farming mobs, daily’s or putting stuff that you do not need but someone else might. So lets get to the base of this… Professions, Professions and Professions there’s a little bit you will need to know before getting stuck in, You can only have 2 main professions and 3 secondary professions ( 4 in cataclysm). The main professions are split into two category’s crafting (BlacksmithingLeather working, TailoringAlchemyJewlcrafting, InscriptionEngineering and Enchanting) and gathering (Mining, Skinning and herbalism). The gathering professions are mainly used to collect the right materials you need for you crafting professions e.g. Blacksmithing will need mining to gather ores plus the gathering profession also gives you a buff that I will cover some other time.

The main idea’s when selecting your professions is having one gathering and one crafting, you can pick what ever profession that suits you or your characters needs weather its crafting new gear or just making gold. just rember if you do select one gathering and one crafting professions it is best idea to make sure your gathering profession collects the right materials you need for your crafting professions, Not all professions do need gathering professions to be  crafted because the materials drop of mobs, chests etc. this goes for tailoring and enchanting because tailoring requires cloth and that drops from mobs in set level zone so the higher level zone your in determines the quality of cloth that drops.

The baseline of selecting your professions is selecting your goal and what you prefer to do because some of the professions are annoying to level up and don’t give you max results for doing so  and thats where this will help you, so stay tuned for the next part.

Catch you all soon.
