Spy, I get wool from skinning sheeps and drops from 18+ humainoids like ogres, trolls, etc... This is on the Alliance side, whatever the equivalent is on your side.

Dont forget your friendly neighborhood tailor for wool - also once you find a mob that drops wool - pls let me know where...

I believe I got wool from the mobs in Northwatch Keep south of Ratchet and Boulder Lode Mine just west of Orgrimmar.

also once you find a mob that drops wool - pls let me know where...

Note about recalling locations - your Map(m) is annotable.
Click on it and you put a pin in. If you don''t enter a description then, double click the pin and it pulls up a dialog to add info.

Very handy for when you accidientally run across a named mob above your level. Mark it on the map, then when you get the quest, no guessing. Of if you find a good fishing spot, mark it. Or certain mobs that drop things that you know someone needs.

Mark your map and you don''t have to remember that stuff.

Wha wha what? I always wondered about that, but I cold never figure out what those things meant. How exactly do you add text? You are talking about those gold things on the minimap when you click it right? Ducki!! You got some ''splainin to do!

No, the gold ones are automatic, game-generated markers.
You can place your own by clicking or double-clicking the map.
And you can view the map for a different area by clicking on a different area - allowing you to see the details of where you''ve been and the roads you''ve mapped out - haven''t you noticed that when viewing the map for, say, the Barrens, you don''t see the details for, say, Durotar? Click Durotar, viola! details!
Click or double-click the area you are viewing.
Ping! There''s a little silver-blue/blue-silver map pin. You can double click it to add info, IIRC.

You are one of those people that can see a shiny, red, candy-like button and not push it, aren''t you?

Uh, I''m not talking about the gold markers telling you where your quest representative is. I''m talking about how if I click once on the mini-map a gold circling flashy shiny object pops up that appears to have no real signifigance that I can as yet determine.

As for the main map, you know, when you hit ''M'', I know about transversing to other parts of the map by either clickong on the names on the sides or right clicking to go up a level and then drill down.

What *I* want to know is what you are talking about as far as customizing your map (''M'' version, not the mini-map) with your own notes. I can''t see how you do that..? I will try what you said when I get home tonight but, until then, I''ll continue to be mystified that this is possible.

I think the map customizer options might be a cosmos thing. I don''t remember seeing it before I got cosmos.

That would make sense.

Hmm... I am unsure. I will check tonight. I know I run cosmos usually, but sometimes I forget. I''ll make sure tonight by running WoW first and trying it.

Dammit. Cosmos is good enough that I''ve forgotten I use it. That''s pretty good.

But to keep it on topic, if you are a fisherman/skinner and the map pin marking thing is CosmosUI, I highly recommend getting it if for no other reason than to help remember the good spots. I think you can turn off much of the stuff you don''t like, if Cosmos bothers you.

Here''s another question - can anyone here make weapons? I''m looking for a good 1H Mace. And a shield. Anyone making weapons?

I''ll definitely start using that tonight... I''ve noticed that the Copper Veins seem to show up at the same places each time... might get overboard and mark each specific place.

duck, Curb (Flux) can make weapons and sheilds I believe.

This is to let you point to a location on the mini-map to other members of your party. It shows up on all their mini-maps.

As Strekos said the minimap gold ring is primarily for party mates, all party members see the ring when someone clicks on the minimap.

Thanks for the info on the map pins Duck, I''ll have to give it a shot tonight.

People have to start saying their faction when asking for weapons it''s getting confusing with everyone having chars for both.

Ahhh. That explains it. I haven''t grouped with anyone yet, so this wouldn''t have been useful I guess.

Duck,

I can now make this:

/drooooool
I''m only level 12, but I definitely want one of those! 17 shouldn''t take too long with all the quests I''ve got. And an enchanter to add +spirit or +stamina to it.

I think I''m going to dump Herbalism for Mining, so I should be able to start supplying low level metals soon to the Smiths and Engineers.

That would help me.

I''m a miner/blacksmith. I want a mining helmet!

My main is a blacksmith (currently 85, i believe) and I REALLY like it. He''s a paladin, so it was a natural choice. How often do you get in-game-smelting?

My only complaint is that the armor sets aren''t complete. I have Runed Copper Gauntlets, Pants, Belt, and Bracers, and I bought plans for a Runed Copper Chestplate - but from the looks of it, Runed Copper Boots don''t exist... I look kind of weird with a full suit of armor... and chain boots.

Yet another....

McFinn: Herbalist/Alchemist

I took mining/smithing in beta and wasn''t too fond of it. Making potions is more up my alley.

Shattermaw (Horde) - Herbalism/Alchemy
Mongg (Alliance) - Skinning/Enchanting

Alliance:

Peecaboo: Skinning/ leather (But considering dropping it for mining/engineering since we have kickass leatherworkers already.) Any opinions on that idea?

Torwynd: mining/herbalism

Dejah: Not played yet, not a guildy yet...will hold off on her professions until we get a feel for what we need.

Horde: Nothing, nada, not even fishing. My poor horde characters are just off in the woods decomposing or something.

That was you Ducki! I couldn''t remember who Torwynd was after last night, but thought I remembered it being you.

What makes a good fishing spot by the way - I just toss my lure in and catch fish or stuff - are there some areas better then others? I know you have to have a certain lvl to fish certain areas, but thats about my only knowledge - pls clue me in...

What makes a good fishing spot by the way

I did _most_ of 50 to 150 in Orgrimmar right next to the Fishing trainer.
Southfury river is nice. The pond just down the road a bit from Brill is ok, the coast beyond the Mills is a bit boring, or was for me.

It''s a blast to fish in that green sludge in the undercity, but maybe just because my first catch there was a Sickly-looking Fish.

I caught a lot of sicklys today in UC... and lots of skulls...

If I remember right from Wow''s forums, you can jump into a pond or river and guage how good a spot is by the number of schools of fish you see swimming around. If you don''t see any or just a couple then it isn''t.

For ooman alliance folks, I did up to 50 in Crystal lake, up to a 100 in SW and then up to 150 in lakeshire. If you get the catfish recipe in SW (12s) it will take your cooking to 150 and still be yellow/orange (can''t quite remember). You''ll have to be lvl 20 and spend a 1G to become expert though.

My Dwarf Hunter (Brom) was pursuing mining/engineering, but i felt like i was getting nowhere, couldn''t find many strikes near Ironforge, so i switched to skinner/leatherworking, and started cleaning up (literally). so much better, although it seems there are a lot of leatherworkers out there:(
