Rift: Rogue Stealth Farming in Abyssal Precipice

After the 1.1 Patch, stealth farming in Charmer's Couldron isn't worth the time anymore (just one Twilight Bloom Node is easily accessible). In Abyssal Precipice however, nothing really changed, so we can still do this easily (till the next patch anyways). There are up to 5 easy nodes (Ore, Wood and Plant). Provided you have the skills, you can harvest all nodes, except the ones after the first boss.

One run takes about 5 minutes, and can be run on non-expert. As far as I know there are different spawn locations, based on whether you are in expert mode or non-expert mode. Continue reading "Rift: Rogue Stealth Farming in Abyssal Precipice"

World of Tanks: The art of hiding and camouflage

Some people are really good at hiding, and it's an art to be sure. There are however some tips and tricks, which will make you a better hider, like the top playing tank destroyers out there which garner 4-7 kills a game. This guide will delve into that skill set, and the use of camouflage.

In order to make you a better player, its best to start with some basics. Hiding in a bush or tree, can increase your stealth ability. You can also use a camouflage net, which increases it by 25%. Additionally, when your tank operators get 100% in training, you can have them train up a skill, like repairs or camouflage. While hiding in a bush can help you remain hidden, there are some tricks which will allow you to hide better.

World of Tanks: Observation is King – a guide to visual cues

People are sometimes surprised when my little ol' light or medium tanks, takes out 2-5 tanks each battle. It's because of the visual cues, that I am able to do what I do.

There are certain visual cues, which when watched for, will make you a better player. These cues can be simple placement of blips on your screen, or they can be the types of blips. There are about 4 visual cues I constantly watch for. Because of these cues, I know when to attack, when to defend, and when to just sit back and wait.

This guide will explain each of these cues and what they mean to us.

Call of Duty: Black Ops – Getting the Thunder Gun

The Thunder Gun in Black Ops is a very strong power weapon, this unique weapon shoots out powerful blasts of sound which knocks enemies far and wide, instantly killing enemies and sometimes separating their limbs. The Gun has 2 rounds in each magazine and has 6 reserve magazines with it, this gun can only reload once you drain the magazine and not before. This gun is found in Zombie mode too but it is not as effective because while it does kill the enemies you shoot directly there will always be some Zombies who just get flung back and become momentarily stunned.

Rift: Over Powered Rogue Build – Assassin Bard Marksman

written by Spitt, of mmoexploiters.com

Before yesterday, I was running my previous Assassin build. This included a small amount on the Riftstalker tree, and a bit more invested in the Ranger tree. The idea, was to be a very versatile Rogue, with the ability to be either an in-your-face melee fighter or a ranged dps with pet. Up till about level 32, this was an awesome build. Then I hit a wall. I was so far ahead in my quests, I could no longer take down the mobs. Admittedly, I was trying to take down mobs which were 3-4 levels above me. The problem I had however, was that if more then one mob came at me, I died. Sure, I could use health potions and damaging items... but it was never enough.

So I rebuilt myself. Continue reading "Rift: Over Powered Rogue Build – Assassin Bard Marksman"

Asheron’s Call: How to level 1-80 in a few hours

Some of you may know this already, if you are a long time reader of mine... I started out playing Asheron's Call. I still even have a buddy who checks it out and gives me notifications, when something changes. Recently, he decided to try it out again, and this time try an Olthoi.

World of Warcraft: How to turn 500 Gold into 10k, in 1 day

written by Mageshadow, Credits to duck for the find

This is a fascinating market that has been around for years now. You can make thousands of gold from this method and you're only having to invest a couple thousand. Last time I did this method I put in roughly 500g and walked out with about 20,000g in loot from patterns/greens. After everything sold I was sitting on a nice hefty pile of 21,500g.

This is NOT a scam, exploit, nor game hack, but it only works once a month. It can however gain you 10k to 20k gold, with a 5% investment. I simply love making gold with this method.

The really amazing thing about this method? It scales! Invest more, get more!
