Gearing Quick Tip – Ghost Iron Dragonling

The trinket Ghost Iron Dragonling is one of the best ways to get a character’s gear improved quickly. It is generally cheap and available, and offers a highly customisable a item for your Trinket slot; which is a gear slot where it can be hard to get upgrades.

All toons can use these for each gear-set spec, as they are BoE and unique equipped.

If you’re not using a item level 450 trinket yet, go grab one of these. I’ll cost anywhere from 100g to 280g-ish to grab, plus some change for the Engineering sockets. If you know an Engineer it is almost insultingly cheap to craft.

Each of the three sockets adds +600 in a secondary of your choice, adjustable just like a gem slot. So all you need to do is look up the stat weighting for your current spec choice and add a socket for each of the top three.

A nice side affect is the mini-pet that frequently gets summoned to help you fight. The dragonling does not inflict much damage (a frontal cone instantly inflicting 3750 to 6250 nature damage), but a good animation. It is great for multi-mob packs when farming drops as a Tank.

Outstanding post on Bullying by Stubborn

Stubborn has written an outstanding post on Bullying. As part of the anti-asshat week movement and the posts on player and guildie behaviour in World of Warcraft – this one is very good. Read it if you have any interest in the topic, especially where an explanation of the typical bully paradigm is different in an online game.

And a great image of David and Goliath by Themico, who I hope does not mind me using this.
