":"  -  Any time a step ends in a ":" instead of a "." means that the next step is part of the current step you are on.  This generally means the next step should be done while working on the current step.  This means every "start working on" or "continue working on" will end in a ":".  But this is used with other occasions as well, so keep this in mind.
The weapon is usable by Druids, Paladins, Shamans and Warriors, and while it's probably the best weapon for Enhancement Shamans and Retribution Paladins, those specs weren't really popular or very viable back in the day, so Warriors were the primary wielders. Before going into the arduous journey you needed to go on to acquire this, we need to mention Sulfuras definitely was one of the most powerful weapons throughout all of Vanilla, but there have been many discussions about whether it was ever really the very best for any class. 

While you get Cat Form at 20, there will be many instances in this level bracket where it’s preferable to sit in Bear Form. One reason is that you don’t have an efficient finisher for your combo points in Cat Form at this stage and you don’t even get Shred until 22. Secondly, you are penalized more swapping from Caster to Cat than from Caster to Bear as you start with potentially 0 energy, since Furor won’t be 5/5 till 27.


I now have a Patreon Page where you guys can support me while I work on Vanilla WoW leveling guides every day.  I appreciate all of you who support me on there, it means a lot to me right now.  Doing this full time is taxing on my financial situation.  My goal is to make the best Vanilla WoW leveling guides on the web and the donations keep me going at it healthfully.  There is also cool rewards you get in return for donating.  Thanks!
Nihilum wasn't a big guild yet, it was still pre-Blackwing Lair times and we were farming Molten Core. For some reason we had a massive number of Warriors in the guild, including Kungen, the GM, with around 8 being in pretty much every MC raid. As you'd imagine, every one of them wanted that shiny fiery hammer for themselves as you couldn't really have 8 tanks in the raid, so most of us were DPS/offtanks. The guild ran on a standard DKP system and most players had a solid amount of gear from the raid already, so every DPS Warrior was gathering their points for that Eye drop. I was the first in line for the Eye so it was a simple matter of saving up my DKP and having the Eye actually drop.

To fully realize the potential of your shadow priest, you’ll need to understand several things about the class. This guide will cover several things like race options, talent choices, and the rotation you should follow to output the most damage. We’ll also talk about all aspects of optimization, including stat priorities, enchanting, beneficial professions, and the consumables that make your character complete.
The stat priority for leveling is loosely as follows: Spellpower > Spirit >= Mp5 > Haste > Intellect > Spell Hit > Spell Crit > Stamina > Agility. When choosing between Mp5 and Spirit, remember that 1 Spirit is worth .625 Mp5 while not casting, and 1.25 Mp5 while not casting if Spirit Tap is active. Also keep in mind that Spirit is doubled by Spirit Tap, but Mp5 is not.

In-Game Addon Version of My Leveling Guides:  As of June 6th the In-Game Addon version of my leveling guides has began construction!  It will be a long road before it's finished completely, so I cannot guarantee how much of it will be ready for Classic Launch but there is a decent chance that some starting zones will be complete for it by then.  It will be full of features, including:  waypoint arrows, automatic updating, and much more.  More features will be available for it overtime too.
Welcome to our World of Warcraft Classic Druid Guide everything you need to know to play the Druid Class. We have Race Base Stats and how your Primary Stats affect your character. We also have the Best Race, Weapons, Profession and Talent Specs to use. For good mesure, we included images to help show the locations of every Druid trainer within Major/Captial Cities in WoW Classic.

On top of that, you’ll also need a “rotation” to keep up with mana regeneration. You’ll generally want to use a Major Mana Potion after you’ve used enough mana to fully benefit from one. If you have enough health and raid damage is low, you can also use a Demonic Rune. If both of those are on cooldown, you’ll want to stop using Mind Blast in your rotation, and instead just cast Mind Flay when you have enough mana to keep Shadow Weaving applied. If you’re really lucky, a druid might Innervate you (don’t count on it).
Swim Speed Potions (used especially at lvl 37 for Faldir's Cove in Arathi Highlands and lvl 57 in WPL).  Try to get multiple stacks of these.  I also recommend keeping a stack of these always in your bags.  You will frequently pass rivers and lakes and can use these potions to pass them faster through out the guide.  Please note that these potions do not stack with Druid's Aquatic Form and Glyph of Aquatic Form.
The Horde 12-20 (Barrens + Stonetalon Mountains) guide has been rewritten and revamped.  In addition, there has been numerous tweaks to the speedrun route to make things faster and easier to follow.  Also, in case you haven't noticed I am now adding about 40% more info per step and redoing all the images.  Unlike with my previous vanilla guides, I am now giving a brief explanation of where to go and what to do with each step along with any other helpful tips.
Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros is possibly the most famous item in all of WoW. One of only two legendary items introduced with the base game, its power may not have lived up to its legend, but the effort you had to put in to get it most certainly did. Today we'll be taking a look at the weapon and how good it was in patch 1.12, how to get it, and we'll throw in an extra story related to it from Vanilla.

Since the beginning of beta, we’ve seen a lot of bug reports around the Hunter class in particular, and we’ve been working diligently over the past weeks to shore up some of the issues that players have been reporting to us. We felt that it would be helpful to post an update on our progress as well as to clear up some confusion around issues that were reported that are behaving consistently with the Reference client and are not considered to be actual bugs.
A mount, and the ability to ride it, is a great way to improve efficiency while leveling. Less time traveling means less time not earning experience. If leveling efficiently and quickly is the goal, it is an absolute requirement to have a mount the moment level 40 is achieved. That means managing money properly. The following tips should help fill those pockets with plenty of coin:

It is true that every spell has some use. There is at least one scenario where every priest spell in the game is worth using. However, while leveling, some spells are simply unnecessary, and learning them is nothing more than a waste of money. Other spells (like Smite) are useful very early on, but quickly become useless as other spells become available.

However: I personally definitely prefer the Human racials over dwarf, since only 2x Priests in the raid have to be dwarf in order to negate fear effects on the MT & 10% Reputation gain on a purely selfish level is almost too good to pass up on because of the various rep grinds that happen during a raid cycle. The 5 % bonus spirit is nice to have as well.
