Node spawning

Cobalt nodes in Zul'Drak

Disclaimers Disclaimer 1: content. This post describes a model for explaining how nodes spawn. I don’t know this is how it’s implemented; this is just a model/theory.

Been quiet over Christmas with the usual festivities, but I have been pottering away on my guides bit by bit. A fellow druid found this great druid macro post over at Dreambound: http://dreambound-druid.blogspot.com/2010/10/kaes-40-druid-macros.html And although the guildie found it all a bit confusing, I think it’s great – some fabulous clearly laid out and well explained macro templates specifically for druids. Great stuff. Also we got an amazing Christmas present from our guild! An awesome little package including fireworks, potions of illusion and a treasure finding … Continue reading
