How I Write Leveling Guides

Part I ~

“Psyn, when are you going to write more leveling guides?”

I’ve heard that question quite a bit lately, along with a few people asking whether or not I’m going to get back to writing leveling guides for WoW, so I figured I might as well answer it on the blog where everyone who didn’t ask could see the answer as well.

I could answer the question in short as, “hopefully soon for SWTOR, and maybe sometime after MoP for WoW,” but to really answer that question I need to explain a little bit about how I go about writing my guides.

Taking the Ironman Challenge to a Whole New Level

Around the middle of last year Vrykerion and I came up with the idea for the WoW Ironman Challenge, for players to level a toon without using any type of stat boosting gear or consumables, no talent points, no professions, no glyphs, and no help from friends. Ironsally from Tome of the Ancient was our first Ironman winner, reaching the level cap with a Warlock of unmatched Iron quality.

Today we’re going to talk about a new kind of Ironman, this one going back more to the real roots of what it is to be labeled an “Ironman”.

There’s a new (to me, at least) blog out there called Iron Man Mode that’s collecting donations for the Child’s Play charity. The blog is aimed at having people play video games and blog about their experiences, but with the Iron Man catch – you play, and blog, only until your character dies. Once your character dies, the blog dies with it.

If you would like to donate to the cause of helping children, participate in the challenge yourself, or just help spread the word you can follow this link to get all the details.

Three-Legged Stools

Over the weekend I found myself thinking about World of Warcraft, about entertainment and stress levels. And those stray thoughts lead me to the three-legged stool.

A three-legged stool is just that, a stool with three legs. If you take one of those legs away, the stool doesn’t stand anymore. You might be able to shift your balance and keep it up on just two legs for a while, but you can’t do it forever.

For this analogy, you’re going to have to look at the game through my eyes for it to really make sense. If you’re the kind of person who hates leveling, doesn’t like PvP, and lives only to raid – then you probably won’t understand it all that well if you only look at it through your own perspective. I do my best to explain what I’m feeling so that you can understand.

World of Warcraft: The Game
I look at WoW as a three-legged stool; there are three parts to this game for me that I can enjoy or not. Leveling is the first, the one that I enjoy most of all as it’s a game in and of itself and I find nearly infinite replay value in this. Second is PvE, end game heroics and dungeons in this case. I’ve had an on-again, off-again relationship with this one and currently we’re “off” as I’m not taking part in it at all. Finally, there’s the PvP leg which encompasses everything from low level twinking to competitive arena. PvP is my second favorite of these three where I find the most challenge this game has to offer as I face off against people rather than programs.

I really enjoy leveling in Cataclysm. Where many people are disappointed in how quickly they can level or how easy it is, I’m loving it more than ever as I get to try so many different classes and specs, and I get to play around with different variations and settings for all of them. I still find leveling to be extremely satisfying.

As I mentioned above, the PvE aspect of this game isn’t holding my interest right now. I’ve been in two raids this expansion, a total of four occasions (two in each). I won’t say that I didn’t have at least some amount of fun in them, but there certainly wasn’t enough there to make me want to go gear up my toons and show up for raids like I did in parts of Wrath. Instead I’ve spent all of my time either leveling or in PvP. I do like running an occasional 5-man or something, but that’s the only part of PvE content I’m really enjoying.

The PvP aspect of the game has been one of my stronger focuses this expansion. I got into arena for the first time and actually found myself having a ton of fun playing with some of my guild members that I didn’t always spend a lot of time with. I’ve had a great time this expansion doing arenas with my buddies, Hex and Cyn.

World of Warcraft: The Social Network
The number of friends that I have in WoW is truly mind blowing. I had no idea when I first got into this game just how insane the social side of it would become. I never expected to end up following hundreds of WoW players on twitter. I never thought I’d have this blog and my readers. I also never imagined the kind of honest relationships that would be built between myself and members of my guilds.

I took a second to think about the friendships I have in WoW and realized I have a three-legged stool here as well. With all of my friendships related to the game, there are three key people who contribute directly to how much I enjoy playing the game. The three people holding up my social stool are my wife, Cynwise, and Anexxia. My wife is the most direct tie-in to my love of leveling as she shares my love for rolling alts. Cynwise, if you don’t already know him, is my direct tie to PvP. Anexxia, while also an altoholic, is also my tie to PvE.

Each of these three people has some amount of direct impact on how much I enjoy the aspect of WoW that I associate with them. The more fun my wife is having with leveling different toons, the more likely I am to do the same. When I see her having fun with a class/spec that I haven’t tried yet or haven’t done in a while, I almost always “steal her idea” and go roll one of my own to experience it for myself. When Cyn finds something cool in PvP, whether it’s twinking or gear or whatever, I generally want to go get in on it and experience it for myself. And when Anexxia is talking about killing raid bosses and what she’s doing to enhance her own performance while also increasing her own enjoyment, I get more and more interested in raiding. It’s important to note, however, that the opposite is true as well; the more they dislike it, the more I dislike it.

Weak Legs
The analogy of the three-legged stool isn’t complete without talking about the legs. Right now, as I’ve already mentioned, the PvE leg for me is extremely wobbly, and threatening to knock over my stool. I’m pretty good at balance for a big guy, though, so I could still play this game and enjoy it without PvE. However, the PvP leg is weakening as well, and I don’t know how long I can balance on just leveling. I could do it for a while, but even I get burned out on leveling if I don’t have something else to do every now and then.

I don’t see the leveling leg giving out on me any time soon. I don’t see it in this expansion, or even in the next. My love for leveling runs very, very deep. More so than most of you can probably even comprehend if you don’t really know me from more than just my blog or twitter.

The PvP leg is shaky right now as I haven’t been all that interested in twinking for a few months now, and the new arena season is so incredibly jacked up that I really just don’t even feel like looking at it. The only PvP that I’m getting in on right now is the PvP that I do while I’m leveling. So the PvP leg of this stool is only about one third of the size it usually is for me.

As for the social aspect of the game, all of those legs are wobbly right now. My wife has been pulling back on her WoW time significantly for about 4 months or so. There are a lot of different factors as to why, but the details aren’t important here. Maybe you can imagine the feeling of there being something that you really enjoyed doing with someone who then stopped doing it, and maybe you can’t. I really enjoyed playing WoW with my wife, even though we technically don’t play together very often because we have very different play styles and she loathes PvP. It’s like going out with a friend for ice cream or drinks every Friday night, you might not enjoy the same flavors but you both like to buy them from the same place. Suddenly you start to notice they only make it a couple of times a month, then once a month, then once every few months. Eventually, it’s just not going to be the same at all without them.

Cynwise has been in a head-meet-wall situation with PvP lately. There have been so many changes that were put in place without notification, or that we were told would be one way and then right before release they were another, and just all kinds of stupid little changes and failings all over the place that just keep on piling up. It’s incredibly frustrating and here lately they’ve just been piling on one thing after another.

Anexxia is in a very similar situation with raiding right now. Though she does love rolling and leveling alts, raiding is her true passion. She’s had trouble with raiding schedules and such here lately and her raiding time has dropped to almost nothing. She’s done some looking for a Horde guild on a non-PvP server that raids during the times she can commit to, and so far she hasn’t had much luck.

The trend here, in case you haven’t caught it yet, is that these three people who support my social WoW stool are all facing really hard times right now in-game which makes it harder and harder for them to enjoy it. They’ve all considered cancelling their accounts, each to different degrees of sincerity. But the more I see my true core of friends not having fun with the game, the more I find myself not having fun with the game. If some of them do decide to quit playing, I’m not entirely sure how long I’ll have a desire to continue playing. They haven’t said that they’re actually going to stop playing, but they’ve thought it and those thoughts have prompted me to take a closer look.

I don’t want what I just said to be taken in any way as a “guys, don’t leave me! you’ll kill my fun!” This is just me taking a look at the game as a whole and asking myself how I really look at the game right now. What do I enjoy, and why do I enjoy it? What do I not enjoy right now, and why not? I enjoy some of the play, but some of it I don’t. I enjoy playing with friends, but with some of them potentially leaving, how much would I enjoy the rest of it? I’m not pressuring them to stay, I’m offering my full support in their decisions whether that is to stay or to go, because I understand all three of them and the situations they’re in.

This is the part where you’re wondering whether I’m going to drop the bomb on my own account, right? ;)

I don’t have that particular answer for you right now. I’ve cut back on my own play time because of health reasons. I do enjoy having some time away from WoW, but I do still really enjoy certain aspects of it. I guess what it really comes down to is, I’m not quite having as much fun with the game as I used to. I’m having a blast with the leveling, but I can already see that eventually that’s going to stop being as fun as well.

I think right now, if I could find another game that I enjoyed as much as WoW, I wouldn’t mind moving on and leaving WoW behind. WoW isn’t my favorite game of all time, but I’ve had more fun with it than any other game to date. If there were another game I really enjoyed playing, I could cancel my account right now and it wouldn’t bother me very much. The major drawback would be the social aspect, which I’m sure I could get through just fine with Twitter and Google+.

I’m a gamer, plain and simple. I’m not a WoW addict or even an MMO addict, but I am a gaming addict. In the past it’s been Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: the Gathering, forum-based roleplaying, or Diablo II. Right now WoW is filling that void, but I can’t say for sure how long that’s going to last.

Maybe I need a break. Maybe I’m just in a bit of a funk and it will all be better in a few days. Maybe I need to quit. Maybe I just need to try something new in-game. I don’t have all the answers right now. What I do have are these thoughts and this blog that I can share them in, and so I did.

2010 in review

WordPress sent me an interesting summary of my blogging from last year. I figured I might as well go ahead and share it here. Last week we talked about this on twitter, how most bloggers are scared to share their numbers with other bloggers as though they’re something to be kept hidden so we don’t die in shame or something because someone else has higher views than us.

So here you go, some hard numbers on Psynister’s Notebook. I’ll also share my thoughts on these numbers down below.

WordPress Review

The stats helper monkeys at mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

Crunchy numbers

A helper monkey made this abstract painting, inspired by your stats.

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 130,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 6 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 95 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 198 posts. There were 3 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 358kb.

The busiest day of the year was December 2nd with 903 views. The most popular post that day was Overlooked Changes.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were,,, Google Reader, and

Some visitors came searching, mostly for darnassus rep, night elf druid forms, darnassus reputation, tauren druid colors, and druid form colors.

Psynister’s Thoughts
I have more than one WordPress blog, and the first two notifications I got were on blogs other than this one. When reading the Crunchy Numebrs section up there where it related my blogs to real life examples I thought they were really cool. It made the blogs feel a lot bigger and more widely known than they seemed. When I read the one for the Notebook here it actually seems sort of sad. It starts off with big numbers and then says it would take 6 days… This blog completely blows the others away in terms of traffic, but the example actually makes this one seem dinky. It’s kind of funny, really.

I had 95 posts last year, which really seems like a lot considering I haven’t been posting all that frequently here lately, but I did have some big pushes earlier in the year so it makes sense, but it was still a bit surprising.

In the section for Where did they come from? it has one of my most frequently referred sites,, which has always seemed kind of odd. The links that I find in my list of referrers here all tie back to posts that were written 2-4 years ago, before I started blogging, that do not have links to my blog anywhere in them. I have no idea how people magically come from them to me though those pages, but apparently it happens and it happens a lot. I’m not complaining, just noting the oddity.

And as you can also see in that section, people are flipping crazy about finding the color combinations for their druid skins and getting reputation with the Night Elves. Do you want traffic? Blog about druids.

The section on Attractions in 2010 doesn’t surprise me much, it’s basically what I expected to see. I’ll point out that recently the post on Shadow Priests has been very, very popular. If you have suggestions for leveling Shadow Priest there are people who want to know. Mana issues are rampant right now for the SPriests, and people are looking for answers and suggestions.

Beta-beta-bo-beta, Banana-fana-fo-feta – BETA!!!

Alright, so the good news is (if you couldn’t tell), I won a Beta key from thanks to tweet from @NowGamer_Dave about the competition. They have 1,000 Beta keys to give away, and they’re handing out 100 of them each day. Today, September 3rd, is only the second day so there are still 900 more just waiting for you to get your hands on them.

A heads up for some of you who I know had a problem with RealID because of the whole showing your real name thing – part of participating in this contest is giving them your full name, so if you’re not willing to part with that information then you can save yourself a little disappointment ahead of time.

The question is simple, and so is the answer. All they want to know is which year World of Warcraft was launched. The US and EU versions were launched in different years, and the answer they’re looking for is the US answer. So if you know the US year then you’re good, and if you know the EU year then just subtract one from it. If you don’t know the answer, then go spend 15 seconds on Google and you’ll find it.

What this means for Psynister’s Notebook
Right now I’m not entirely sure what it means as far as the blog is concerned. Am I going to jump head on into the Beta and leave the live behind? Not a chance. Am I going to spend a good deal of time over there? Well, that really remains to be seen and is heavily dependent on how frequently things do or do not work.

I do plan on playing around a bit with high level toons in the Beta, just to see what it’s like to play the classes that I’m already messing around with to see all of the abilities, but I’m not going to do that for very long. I play to level, I blog about leveling, leveling is my gaming passion – so that’s what I’m going to spend most of my beta time doing.

Now, the whole point of having a beta is to test, to document, and to report. It’s not about getting a sneak peak at everything and getting to play around with the new toys before everyone else. Well, it is, but it isn’t. The main objective is testing and that’s what I plan on doing. I’m going to do my testing from a leveling perspective though, not from an end game perspective.

I’m still going to follow through with my actual Cataclsym plans of leveling those race/class combinations to at least level 20, but I’m going to do basically the same thing here with different combinations. I’m sure we’re still going to see plenty of changes between now and the official launch, so I’m not worried about being redundant.

Beta Plans
I already wrote about what I plan to do in Cataclysm itself (here), so I’m looking at that now as I consider which characters I want to roll in the beta. Do I want to roll now what I plan to level then, only to redo it all again when the game actually launches? Or would I rather roll other combinations just for the sake of trying out this or that? I’m not the kind of person that doesn’t like to do things over again, it doesn’t bother me to roll a race/class, level them, delete them, and then reroll the exact same thing. At the same time, I don’t want the live experience to be ruined by the beta experience (if that makes any sense after the previous sentence).

There are only 10 character slots per account, and only ten classes. There are 12 races, so two of them will have to be left out of the initial run, but that’s fine because I don’t mind doubling up on some classes.

Psynister: Blood Elf Death Knight (Frost)
Psynralyl: Dwarf Shaman (Enhancement)
Psynwise: Goblin Warlock (Affliction)
Psynexxia: Gnome Priest (Shadow)
Psynthato: Troll Druid (Resto)
Psyncazador: Night Elf Hunter (Marksman)
Psyningchaos: Undead Mage (Fire)
Psyndach: Tauren Paladin (Prot)
Psynarrens: Orc Rogue (Subtlety)
Psyneretio: Human Warrior (Prot)
Psynfitoom: Worgen Druid (Balance)
Psynzzlybear: Draenei Mage (Frost)

The only reason I’m rolling myself as a DK is because I want to see if there are any changes to the starting area. I don’t really care to see the Cataclysm DK beyond that point as far as the beta is concerned. While my introduction to the Enhancement Shaman’s greatness came from Stoneybaby, my wife Fynralyl is the first shaman that comes to mind. There’s no question that I never would have bothered with a Warlock if it weren’t for Cynwise. Gnomes were a toss up as I have two Gnome-loving, Priest-playing friends that jumped right out at me, but I had to settle on one so Anexxia got it.

When I think druid, I think Ithato and Lufitoom, with Ithato on heals and Lufi on kills. Hunters are kind of like the minions from Despicable Me, there’s a million of them and they’re all so much alike in so many ways, and yet so different. I scrolled through my twitter feed and started looking at them all until one stood out to me, so Nochecazador won the Hunter’s spot. There are a lot of Mages out there as well, so I really had to do some serious deciding there, and in the end decided on Bringing_Chaos and Krizzlybear (apologies to Gnomeaggedon, but I just couldn’t make you anything other than a Gnome and I’m not doubling up on races yet).

The Paladin class is where I started getting serious about WoW blogging, so my introduction into it came via several Paladin bloggers and twitter users. I had to settle on one though, and the big bad Pally daddy that stood out to me was Rhidach. Arrens takes the Rogue spot as one of the first WoW friends I found on twitter, but curse the undead sucker for having a name that just doesn’t mesh well with my own. The first Warrior tweep I stumbled onto, who also had a big impact on my tanking early on, was Veneretio and I’m also doing him the favor of bringing him to the Alliance side since I know deep down that he loves us so much.

The rest of the choices up there are all based on people that I know from either twitter or blogs. I’ve taken their main class and spec, or at least the class and spec that I associate with them the most, and stolen pieces of the name that I know them by and slapped a new race on them. (I know a lot of people from twitter and in the bloggosphere, so when I thought of who/what to play I went with the first person that came to mind for the classes and specs that I picked, so if you don’t see your name up there….well, deal with it as I’ve only got 12 slots here, people. :P)

And that will be my plans for leveling during the Cataclysm Beta. The goal is to get one of them to level 20 and then switch to another until I’ve got them all to the same place. Then I’ll start over again at the top and push them towards 30. The first two that I’m unimpressed or bored with in the beta will be the two that get deleted to allow for the other two that won’t fit in the default 10 character slots.

Once I’ve gotten the classes to level 30 I’ll have to decide what I want to do from there. Should I switch to just playing one or two of them for the sake of seeing the leveling process over a larger range, or should I keep doing what I’m doing? I don’t know yet, so we’ll have to see how it plays out.

I’m not sure yet which will be more beneficial form a testing stand point. Do I think I can level 12 different characters to level 30 by the time Cataclysm launches? I have no doubt in my mind that I can do that. Do I think I can do that and remain active in my guild in the live game? Well, that’s the part that’s still got me thinking.

Achievement Creator:

Today’s post has almost nothing at all to do with leveling, but that’s alright. I’m here today to share with you a very cool site that I just found which lets you make your own achievement images, and I feel like sharing it.

The site that you build these images at can be found here: I stumbled onto it today after reading a post by Mishaweha of ME, MYSELF… AND ALL OF THEM.

You can find several examples on Mish’s site, and here are some of my own examples for you:

Magelo and Zetbit

Today we’re going to take a look at a tool mostly used for blogging or forums. I’m sure you can find other uses for it as well, but this is sort of Blogger Bling™ if you will. We’re talking about two websites that are signature generators, sites that link to the WoW Armory to get stats from your characters that you can tie into a picture to generate an image for use on blogs, forums, and so on.

We’re going to talk about the one that I’ve used for quite a while now, called Zetbit, and we’re going to talk about a new one (new to me, at least) called Magelo.

The first time I saw the Zetbit signatures was on some forums for PvP twinks that is no longer in business. When I saw them they were amazing and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. Lucky for me, most players just left the links as they were, so when you clicked on them they took you to Zetbit’s website. That kind of sucked for me because I was there to research twinks and seeing all of these toons I wanted to be able to go to armory links to find out the juicy details like gear, talents, glyphs, enchants and so on.

When I went to the site myself I made a few of them, copied their info over and then looked at the html code to see what all was going on. The pictures themselves were stored on the site, so I couldn’t just play around with the numbers in the link to change things however I wanted, but the code was broken into a URL and an IMG tag, so I could make the main change I wanted myself at the very least. Instead of having the URL point back to Zetbit, I just throw in my character’s armory link instead. The Zetbit images have the website URL written on them anyway, so no credit was taken away.

There are three different image types that you can get from Zetbit: framed, unframed, and mini. Framed and Unframed are basically the same thing, except for the obvious presence or absence of a frame around the image. These images offer you up to five stats from your character that you’re able to choose when you set it up. They also show the icons for both of your specs if you have purchased dual specialization, and the background image and font colors can be changed as you wish. The Mini option shows how you’ve spent your talent points in the two specs, but the rest of your character information (except for level) are hidden.

Below are examples of all three types of images that Zetbit generates. I have also replaced the zetbit link with my armory link as usual for each.


Of the Zetbit images, the Framed is my preferred look. The frame is a fairly new addition to the site, so you may not have known it was available if you use Zetbit but haven’t updated in a while.


This is the style that I used for my My Characters page on the blog, though I’ll likely be updating that page soon.


The mini is what I’ve used on forums myself. I don’t like seeing large signatures on forums, but on ones where this kind of signature is appropriate this is the style I like for its size and simplicity.

[Zetbit Update: A feature that I overlooked in the Zetbit options is the option to crop your own images to use as your background. There are step-by-step instructions for how to do it. You’ll have to register for an account there to use that feature, and that’s also the only way to customize your avatar as well, but the option/feature does exist.]

I just recently found out about Magelo within the last week or so from a couple of people I talk to every day on Twitter. Magelo does basically the same thing that Zetbit does, it just gives you more options to choose from while you do it. Using the same character and the same attributes to show, here is the same style of link from Magelo, with minimal custimization.


This is the default signature, which shows the most information as it is of course the largest. I like that my professions are added in here where they aren’t on any of the Zetbit images, but I would like to have my dual spec shown as well.


The mini-signature follows the same basic guidelines as the larger one and shows most of the same information. A couple of the attribute fields are dropped, as are professions, but the critical information is displayed.


The Avatar pic gives very little information about your character except for the class and level. But, it does show your characters actually portrait in the gear they’re currently wearing via armory, and it’s perfectly sized to be used as an actual avatar if you want to use it on a forum or similar setting.

There are a lot of things that these two sites/services have in common. They both link to the armory to get your characters information and in so doing are able to update themselves whenever something changes about the character. They both show your name and title, your guild name, and your server information. They both show your race as well, though Zetbit does it only via character portrait while Magelo does it with both a portrait and text. Both of them also offer a level of customization in the background. Zetbit allows different images while Magelo offers colors or images.

The one thing that bothered me about Zetbit was the character portrait on the left. It’s always generic, and while it is suited to your class, it’s not really suited to your character. For instance, the picture there would work fine for an Arcane or Frost Mage, but while I was running around with a Fire spec it didn’t really fit in and was kind of lame. It also shows the mage wearing some pretty cool looking shoulders, which just didn’t fit when I was level 12. But, since I’m using Arcane/Frost right now it really works just fine. Really that’s just me being picky. If you register at Zetbit’s site they do give you the option of loading custom images that you can use for both your background and avatar images, so while the default avatar bugs me at times, the customization options are a perfect solution.

Magelo fixes part of that because it actually shows my character as he is. The picture itself doesn’t indicate which spec I’m in (though the information in the signature does), but it also doesn’t indicate that I’m a spec that I don’t have to begin with, so there’s no contradiction.

When it comes to customization there’s really not much of a competition here as Magelo blows Zetbit out of the water the two are very well matched, with Magelo coming out slightly ahead. While Zetbit by default links back to it’s home page, Magelo defaults to linking you to its own version of the armory. And, when you set up your Magelo image you have a lot of cool options such as adding a custom background image, setting font, setting the opacity of your profile, choosing between a 2D and 3D model, showing/hiding your helm and cape, and also applying a musical URL that will play when the page is viewed. Zetbit doesn’t have the fancy armory thing built in, so a lot of that isn’t there, but it does also provide you with the ability to use a custom background and avatar by loading and cropping your own images.

There are things that I like about both options. For instance, I like that Zetbit actually shows both of my specs so that you know from a quick glance what my character is set up to do. Similarly, I like how Magelo includes my professions so that you can quickly glance to see what they are.

Comparing the two I think that Magelo’s additional features would make it the winner if this were a competition, but at the same time I would like to be able to combine some of the functionality of each to get an overall perfect collection of information. The top of this list are professions and dual specs. Magelo shows you one while Zetbit shows you the other.

If I were to take a collection of these signatures while looking to recruit someone to my guild though, I would not have all of the information I wanted from either option at a glance. For instance, I need to know what both of your specs are and what your professions are at. I know you’re into min/maxing when I see that you have two crafting professions that work well together, and I know you like to be versatile when your dual spec allows you to fill multiple roles in a raid. I can also see whether you’re strictly a raider or if you’ve got one spec that’s clearly a dedicated PvP spec.

Update: Taking the extra functionality of Zetbit now into account we’re on a much more balanced scale. If you want to keep your signatures up to date and as accurate as possible to what your character looks like, then Magelo is the one you want. If you want it to be more personalized/customized then either one will work for you. Magelo offers just a few more customized options than Zetbit does, but I would gladly suggest either site to those looking for a signature generator.
