Useful Mage AddOns

World of Warcraft Cataclysm Mage AddOns That Will Boost DPS and Make You More Effective

There are three AddOns that I find extremely useful for being a mage:

Tradeskillmaster - the new gold making addon

Tradeskillmaster is the new ultimate gold making addon. Quick Auctions 3 used to be the king of addons when it comes to making gold, but it was discontinued and replaced by Auction Profit Master, which works very similar to Quick Auctions 3. However, Auction Profit Master is no longer operational. The same authors of the addon decide to make a new and improved addon - Tradeskillmaster. The functions of QA3/APM are still in Tradeskillmaster and they've decided to add other modules to make it the complete gold making addon. It is still in beta but it's worth trying right now! Download Tradeskillmaster + Modules.


Love is in the Air: Crown Chemical Co. Dungeon

It's that time of the season again folks, time where love making happens as you travel across capital cities spreading the message of love and hearts not only to your comrades or random townspeople, but to your faction leaders as well (helllloooooo Tyrande!). With the festivities that's going on the entire planet, certain companies are trying to take advantage of the holidays, and one of them is the Crown Chemical Co. They're really not THAT bad, but thanks to the insecurities of the Steamweedle Cartel, you will be forced to square-off with their leaders at their homebase, Shadowfang Keep.

Inscription Gold Guide for Cataclysm

Inscription was the cash cow in WOTLK. Eventually, it became very cheap to make a glyph and people need glyphs all the time. Glyphs prices were selling for as low as 5 gold each but were selling like pancakes. This turned the auction house into a camping competition – whoever can stay in front of the auction house the longest to cancel glyphs and relist the glyphs gets more gold.
Cataclysm changed the demand for glyphs. People now only need to buy glyphs once and will never have to buy glyphs again. So imagine that this priest has already bought all the glyphs required for PvE and PvP, he will never have to go to the auction house ever again for his entire WoW career. Because of this change, a lot of scribes abandoned inscription as their gold cash cow and turned into other professions like jewelcrafting.

Achievement Hunter : To All The Squirrels Who Shared My Life

 Achievement Hunter : To All The Squirrels Who Shared My Life

Want to start achievement hunting? Not sure where to begin? Not a problem! Each Fortnight Phoenixsting will go over some achievement hunting, with tips on where to begin.

Ah critters, the little ones that run around and look cute, you can love them, you can hug them and you can fry them with a fireball. However this week we are looking to show them some love.


Hunter's Guide to Heroic Vortex Pinnacle

Going through Heroic Dungeons is tough. With all the fuss of mob and boss encounters, things have certainly elevated from what we're used to in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. Not only do we just hit hard with our shots, we're now required to crowd control as well. Even with Blizzard nerfing the heroic instances a couple of weeks ago, still the game has changed the way we play our Hunters in every situation.

Today we'll be discussing the role of the Hunter in Vortex Pinnacle, and although we love to talk about the adds as well, we'll only be focusing on the bosses. There are a total of three bosses in Vortex Pinnacle, and some may have already noticed that this is probably the easiest Heroic Dungeon out of all the Cataclysm instances. Now sit back and enjoy the winds.

Top 5 Best Looking Hunter Pets in Cataclysm

Hunter pets are one of the crowning glories of the arrow-wielding class. With their additional DPS plus the buff/debuff they inflict, they are considered as the extra fire power a group or raid needs to properly get the job done. Though there are times when Hunters prefer to use pets as a novelty or show towards other classes and co-hunters (think Pokemon), especially when the essential buffs/debuffs are already provided in the raid. So we choose the best looking one so we would look really bad-ass whenever we do some serious content.
