Level 40 in vanilla WoW is known as being sort of the halfway point to level 60 and when you finally can get your mount. The mount costs a total of 100 gold, 80 for the mount and 20 for the training. You’ll need to buy the mount from your racial vendor, unless you’re exalted with that faction (i.e. Humans get horses, need exalted with Darnassus to get tigers, etc.). Best Advice: The first thing is start planning for your mount at level one. Don’t spend anything at all ever. Avoid the auction house except to offload items. There isn’t very much you can buy at lower levels that’s worth the money and other players will gleefully spend their gold. Don’t take a flight path every single time as well. Flights are expensive. If it’s not across the entire continent, just walk! Grinding: Grind while questing. Just farm enemies while…

Choosing a class can be difficult and leads often to alts because the grind after level twenty becomes rather severe. First you’re going to have to deal with the fact that most classes just suck at solo grinding. Mages have to sit after one or two enemies and drink. Warlocks take awhile to get enough skills and health and gear to be able to pull non-stop and need the Voidwalker pet to really get going. Rogues are a dime a dozen and Warriors are powerhouses at level 60. So we’re going to go through the different classes and why you’d play them and the pitfalls of early game and late game. This guide assumes you know the basics of what the classes are and we are going to keep it brief to help you decide, but not make the decision for you. Truly you should play what you have the…

World of Warcraft Classic brings us back to an interesting time in WoW’s history, when not all classes were nearly as equal as they are today. To start with, for instance, respecing is very expensive and all gear goes towards one spec for most classes so a Protection Warrior would have full defense gear which wouldn’t work for an Arms Warrior. This list is broken into classes (with specs) to avoid, the best classes to play and the most fun which is a bit different than best. Since it takes so long to level a character, remember, it’s about what you have fun playing more than it is which one is the absolute best. This list also takes into consideration future patches and plans based on the entire vanilla WoW experience, instead of just at launch. Class Specializations to Avoid These classes are just absolutely awful and you should never…

Islanders requires you to place buildings in a way that builds synergy in a zen like continuous march, much like business meetings. The way you place each building is how you build your score. Certain buildings like other buildings and dislike others. As a city planner your job is to place the buildings in a please way, build enough score and move to the next island where you start all over again. The vast majority of achievements focus around building buildings & building your score and rushing to certain milestones. To move from island to the next, you’ll have to reach specific score thresholds. Once you start at a new island, you lose everything from the previous one (except the score). You can press ESC at any time to see your online ranking. You can stay on one island before moving to the next to continue score building if you’d…

Dicey Dungeons is a board game style dungeon crawler, where you play one of several dice that are vying for their freedom in the dicey dungeons. It’s similar to Slay the Spire, but is a bit more casual and forgiving. The first time you load up and play, you’ll play as the Warrior and go through a very nicely built tutorial that explains most of the concepts. I highly encourage you to not skip the tutorial, if a skip function is ever added. Unlocks Warrior: You start with the warrior. Thief, Robot, Inventor and Witch: They will unlock as you play. Jester: Beat Jester as a final boss in the bonus round, when you beat the Jester, resolves him into a dice to play. To unlock the last door you’ll need to beat all the bonus rounds, including the one for Jester. To unlock more stories with each character, you’ll…

I had so much fun with DragonQuest Builders 2 but there is a few really interesting things to note of if you’re just starting or currently playing that can help make your play through easier. Check out our below hints and tips to get you through the game. This is mostly spoiler free. I’m going to mention tool unlocks, but I’m not going to talk about the story or what the specific zones have going on in them. General Game Tips You’ll unlock a bag very early in the game that has many tabs and can store lots of materials. Don’t be afraid to toss materials until you get the bag. After you get the bag, throw away extra materials often. For instance, when you unlock the ability to take out a lot of soil fast, soil will quickly start to stuff your bags full. Throw away extra that you’ll…

The most important parts of a PC build aren’t within the PC itself, but are the devices we use to interface with it and have some of the largest impact on performance. An old monitor with a low refresh rate won’t show the full performance of an RTX 2080 TI, while a mouse and keyboard are used across more than just games. That’s why it’s important to purchase high quality input devices and avoid some of the cheaper “sludge” I like to call it on Amazon. A mouse is something that I use a lot, from clicking links on the Internet to pressing the pew pew buttons. Mice for me have crossed generations, my trusty MX518 lasting through Windows 95, then Windows 98 and into the Windows 7 era. At which point I switched over to the Razer Naga. I’ve never had a reliable Razer product and often had to…

Dragon Quest Builders 2, a voxel based builder and RPG, is a direct sequel to Dragon Quest II and a spiritual successor to Dragon Quest Builder. You play as a builder as an apprentice builder going around with Malroth (hard to spoil this since it lays it out at the start, the big baddie in the original games but in Human form). You explore this large and vast world, learning how to build more and more things and upgrading bases to produce supplies for you. Villagers will till the fields, sow the seeds, gather the crops and even cook the food for you. You’ll eventually be able to automate much of the base, including everything from its defense to its production. As you advance through the games you’ll unlock more and more recipes and in general, it’s a pretty good time. Let me start off with the positives: it’s cute…

Summer Catchers is PC (Windows, Mac, Linux) game about an epic road trip through the forest starting in a wooden car to find summer. It’s a little bit like Alto’s Odyssey (published by the same publisher, Noodlecake Studios) mixed with a little bit of Reigns. The basic premise is that you’re in a vehicle, you’ve got a limited number of power-ups to overcome specific obstacles and a list of tasks to complete to move to the next area and unlock more zones. A cooperative mode exists where players take turns choosing items and you unlock additional functionality as you go through the game (I don’t want to spoil it too far). The four man team behind the game has put a lot of extra love into it, which is reflected in the beautiful pixel art and the subtle wit of the story. Unlike other endless runners, there is a steady…
