The cloak is nice because you only need one of these instead of the previous cloak versions since the primary stat changes depending on the class it is used on. The on use trinkets for versatility, haste, or critical strike could be very strong if used together by numerous party members with the same trinket. Finally, the threat reducing trinket could be useful for solo levelers in dungeons with newer, non-heirloom geared tanks in order to not pull threat on some larger packs of enemies.
If we think we come up with a smart “guide” this way, we might even be allowed to submit it to “dugiGuides” as well, for their review – and if approved, it might even be added to next update of the guide? Maybe in a new “custom” division of the guide? – ofc. if we are allowed to expand on this, we might even be allowed to write some text for the coordinates too? – or run a macro to check for a “quest flagged” If we submit it back to “dugi” – ofc. legal stuff will have to make sure they run into no trouble.
Heirlooms are special pieces of armor that level up with your character, so they have stats that are always respectable for your character’s level (up to level 110). Heirlooms that fit the head, shoulder, chest, legs, and back armor slot offer an experience bonus. The total bonus is 45 percent if you have them all. It’s also possible to acquire a ring that adds another 5 percent, but you must win a fishing contest acquire it, and that can take some time.
I think this may have been a case of that specific sword simply having wildly inflated secondaries. If I recall correctly, when I played during Wrath, +STR and +Hit were the stat kings for plate DPS classes (I remember all the guides recommending +STR gems in every slot and +STR enchants on everything) and secondary stats were, well, secondary, and inflated secondaries on a weapon weren't that big a deal. But now that secondary stats have so much more importance, I suspect that an "outlier" weapon like that just wreaks havoc with modern calculations, so that all the addon sees is that this particular sword offers +15 more Haste and Crit than everything else that drops.
New to Patch 8.1 is a new leveling flask called the Draught of Ten Lands which increases all primary and secondary stats by 20 and experience gained by 10%. This effect lasts for one hour and persists through death, similar to other battle flasks. This item can be purchased using a new Patch 8.1 currency called 7th Legion Service Medal or Honorbound Service Medal which can be earned doing the new incursions and Warfront activities. Simple earn these medals on your main character, purchase the flasks, and send them to your other characters. The cost is 10 of the medals.
“Power leveling” is a term used to describe getting a character to max level in a short amount of time. Essentially, someone who is power leveling wants their character’s level maxed ASAP so that they can move on to “end game”—gameplay intended to challenge max level players. This is an appealing practice for seasoned World of Warcraft players due to the fact that characters are required to reach level 100 to participate in a number of the more intriguing game play options. In addition to helping a player achieve max level more quickly, power leveling differs from traditional leveling due to its focus on boosting experience points through the use of special items, promotions, and gear. Also, while traditional leveling tends to be quest-heavy, power leveling often relies on running instances rather than simply moving from quest hub to quest hub. There are several different ways to power level, and many of them can be used in combination with others for a truly speedy leveling experience.
Pick a simple goal or idea for your AddOn. It's often a good idea to just make an AddOn that only opens a window or prints a message to get started, especially when everything is new for you. After that works the way it should, and you have learned everything necessary to make an AddOn work at all, you can move on to adding one piece at a time toward your goals. Writting software in general is often a never ending process because you can always think of something new to add or improve.
The World of Warcraft API has a list of functions that you can interact with and to talk with WoW using Lua. These are your building blocks for manipulating WoW windows and chat boxes and so forth. Looking at these for the first time can be very daunting. But don't be discouraged. After getting more familiar with Lua the WoW API gets much easier, and the documentation gets much easier to read. Keep in mind there are many different ways to accomplish your goals, so when going though the API keep looking until you find a way that best suits what you need.
