Everfrost Chip Locations and Coordinates

Everfrost Chip Locations and Coordinates

Players working their way through Storm Peaks will eventually come across the Sons of Hodir faction. Quickly they’ll realize that the rep grind is a big pain in the derriere. For those of us that aren’t into Inscription, we need them because they offer us shoulder enchants.

And we’re all players that want to be the best at what we do so we go out there and farm our butts off.

Along the way, you might hear of these objects known as Everfrost. Every turn in nets you 350 rep.

Here’s a few locations with coordinates and visual references. I’ll continue to add more as I see them. If you happen to see one not on the last, please screenshot and email it to me! Use the contact form to get in touch with me first.

Everfrost chip location

Coordinates: 58.2, 64.6

Notes: Fly up. It’s not at ground level.

 WoWScrnShot_121808_094946

Coordinates: 73.1, 65.4

Notes: As you approach this Everfrost from the east, you might see this chip disappear from your eyes. Don’t worry, it didn’t actually go away. What happened is that you entered a phased part of the map which the chip isn’t a part of. What you have to do here is approach the chip from the southwest (like pictured above). This will let you see it and loot it. If you approach from the north, you won’t be able to see it at all.

Coordinates: 75.2, 48.4

Notes: You can find this at the back of the area where you kill the Forefathers. It’s right on the ledge. Most players tend to miss this one.

Notes: Right as you fly over the village of the Norse women, look south on a cliff. A lot of players miss this one.

I’ll continue to update this post as I get more locations. If you see any that aren’t on the list, get in touch!

10 Tips for Extreme Leveling to 80 (without denting your wallet)

10 Tips for Extreme Leveling to 80 (without denting your wallet)

extreme

I hit level 80 last night around 8:45 PM. Most of the player curve is around the 74-75 area so I’m considered “ahead” of the curve. Although I could credit my leveling speed to my “Asian racial (25% extra stamina when really focused on a goal, cooldown: once every 365 days)”, there’s a few things to keep in mind if you really want to get to 80 as fast as possible.

Note, you’ll miss out on a lot of the lore and the story. But I’m proceeding on the assumption that it is not a primary concern.

  1. Accept all quests in the area without reading the backstory. 4 out of 5 times, the quest involves you killing something or picking something up. Read what you have to do, and go do it. You don’t need to know about the circumstances behind the objective.
  2. On quests where you need to pick up items off the ground, keep looking for others. It takes a few seconds to loot one anyway. Use the time to spot.
  3. Forget professions. Worry about them when you’re 80.
  4. Train at every 2nd level. Unless there is a specific spell that you feel you really need, it takes a lot of effort to fly down to the port and boat or zepp back to your capital cities.
  5. Keep the autorun handy. Read up on WoWhead or your favourite leveling guide to find out what you need to dow hen you get to your destination.
  6. Chunking. Just like how I sometimes write my posts in massive chunks or blocks, do all the quests in an area. I’ll usually do 7 or 8 quests at a time per hub and do a gigantic turn in.
  7. Know your damage rotations. Find out the fastest way to kill things even if it means being inefficient. You’re trading efficiency for speed. Find out what the “execute” range is. A typical Smite and Shadow Word:Death will kill any mob with around 3000 health remaining. Holy Nova will clean it up.
  8. Blow your cooldowns. You’re not fighting a raidboss. Everytime Heroism is up and you have to level an entire camp of Gnolls, do it. If Power Infusion is available and you get to blow up Murlocs, use it. Maximize the useage. If it involves you killing 60 Rhinos for Nessingwary, it’s a green light to pop trinkets and just nuke the place.
  9. Consumables. Chances are, you still have still have some Mana Potions and food or flasks left. Use them as you’re leveling. They’ll provide a slight edge.
  10. Know how much resource it takes you to kill a mob. For example, I know it takes me ~3000 mana to bring a whelp down to its knees. For most mobs, its around 3000 – 3500 mana. If I can squeeze off one more kill before drinking, I’ll do it.

What other tips would you suggest for players that want to level fast?
