Argent Tournament Damage Increase Exploit – World of Warcraft

WoW, with every new day more and more exploits come out which are connected to the latest World of Warcraft Argent Tournament Event!

This time I’ll tell you how to increase your damage while dueling on the mounts.

All you need, is some talent or skill which increase your damage by a fixed percentage.

Dugi's Ultimate World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King PvP and Leveling GuideThis exploit was tested and confirmed to work with Hunter’s Improved Tracking. It’s a Tier 1 Talent in Survival Tree and can be upgraded up to 5%. Now if you have specced it, all you have to do is to enable the tracking. For example, Humanoid Tracking if you’re doing duels in the Argent Tournament event area or Tracking Undead, if you’re fighting against the scourge in front of the Icecrown Citadel.

This probably works with Berserker Stance of an Warrior too! If you have an Warrior or some other class which can increase it’s damage by a fixed amount of percentage, leave a comment and let us know if there are other classes who can use this exploit.

P.S. Tat being said, you will only do half damage, if you’re have a skill active which reduce your damage, like the Hunter’s Aspect of the Viper.Warcraft Formula Blueprint

Healing Bandage Exploit – World of Warcraft

If you Player A bandages Player B, Player B will get the debuff which should prevent him from using bandage again, right? However, it seems to be bugged currently, so if Player A bandages B, B can still bandage himself as often as he wants even though he has the debuff up.

Short step-by-step guide:

  • Let someone bandage you
  • Bandage yourself
  • Repeat

Very useful in Battlegrounds, probably works in Arena too. It’s definitely useful in raids.

Argent Tournament Combat Pet Exploit – World of Warcraft

Today i discovered a new bug with the new Argent Tournament permanent event. This exploit will make it a bit easier to win the duels against the NPCs, at least if you’re one of the classes who can use this exploit.

For this exploit to work, you need a class which can temporary cast combat pets, like

  • Death Knight: Ghoul (only works if you don’t have the Master of Ghouls Talent which makes the pet permanently)
  • Mage: Mirror Image/Water Elemental
  • Shaman: Spirit Wolves/Elementals
  • Priest: Shadow fiend, although it’s quite useless as it has a very short duration

Permanently Pets, like Warlock and Hunter Pets, won’t work as they disappear when you mount up. If some of the above applies to you, here is what you have to do:Dugi's Ultimate World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King PvP and Leveling Guide

  • Equip the Argent/Alliance/Horde Lance
  • Summon your temporary combat pet
  • Mount up
  • Throw up your shields and let your pet attack the dueled NPC while you hit on it too (Best tactic is still: Shield Breaker –> Charge –> Melee Attack –> Shield up –> Get Range + Shield Breaker + repeat)

Achievement: Noble Garden Event – World of Warcraft


With the latest World of Warcraft 3.1 Content Patch, the Noble Garden was revamped. It’s not part of the World Events Meta-Achievement and new events/things to do where introduced for this reason.

During the event, magical eggs appear around the starter towns, like Stormwind, Ironforge, Silvermoon etc. There will be a Quest – Spring Gatherers/The Great Egg Hunt - where you will get a basket for 10 chocolates and another NPC who offers a quest to collect 20 egg shells.

As the Noblegarden Event hasn't started yet on the live realms, all of this is based on the event duing it was active on PTR Servers! As with all PTR stuff, the event could be object to change. Will try updating if something big changed!

Warcraft Formula Blueprint

How it works

Brightly Colored Eggs will spawn all over the starter zones and capital cities. Most of them will be well hidden (i.e. underneath carts, next to buildings or inside some bushes [no, not the “Double U” :P). Simply right click/use them and you can loot the Brightly Colored Eggs. Open it to obtain the “Loot”, some chocolates and one egg shell.

From PTR testing the chances seems to be roughly 2-3% for Spring Robes and Spring Flower. Also you have a chance to randomly get polymorphed into an rabbit! It can easily be removed by right clicking on the buff. It’s important to mention this, as you can’t cast, use mounts or taxi while polymorphed.

After completing the first Quest, you will get your own Noble Garden Egg Basket. It has an on use ability which will increase your walking speed by 60% for 10 seconds and an 10 second cooldown (Yes you read right: 10 seconds).

You can only find eggs inside towns and the starter zones (the ones with green zone name and disabled PvP). It should also be noted that the Noble Garden Egg Basket (the buyable version: Egg Basket) only works inside that zones.

Update: Found a very nice area in Azure Watch - Draenei Beginner Town (click to resize)

World of Warcraft: Noble Garden Event

Update 2: There is also a Horde location with good spawn points. It’s located at Falconwing Square in the Ruins of Silvermoon. At (35.5, 74.0) you can find a cart there (see picture below)



Beside the Meta-Achievement and the Title, there are some other nice rewards you can get from this event. While Elegant Dress and the Tuxedo as well as Spring Flowers and Spring Robes can be looted from eggs, some of it can’t. Most noticeable being Spring Rabbit’s Foot. If you haven’t done the Lil’ Game Hunter yet, this is a good way to get one more Vanity Pet.

Update: Confirmed that you can get all the rewards from the Vendor randomly from eggs too. It's best to keep the eggs until you have almost everything and buy the missing things from it (however, you have to find the 2 Tuxedo Parts and the Dress out of the Eggs to get the Achievement. It won't be counted if you buy it . So wait with buying until you have ~200 Eggs/chocolate + 2 Tuxedo Parts and Dress before start buying)

Additionally, if you're a Mage, you can buy an Tome of Polymorph: Rabbit book for 100 chocolate. Worthy and cool gimick for every mage!


Required for Meta-Achievement Noble Gardener (Horde)

  • Dugi's Ultimate World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King PvP and Leveling GuideI Found One!: Simple one. Just find and loot one of the Brightly Colored Eggs.
  • Desert Rose: First get an Spring Robes for 50 chocolates (or be lucky to find one inside eggs). This will allow you to plant a flower in the deserts of The Badlands, Silithus, Thousand Needles, Desolace and Tanaris. With a 1 min cooldown, it’s pretty much doable without much waiting time and just a little bit traveling.
  • Hard Boiled: There are two ways to do this. Either loot eggs until you’re polymorphed into an rabbit and walk to Un’goro and wait at the Golakka Hotsprings (in the middle of Un’goro) until you lay an egg. This is good for people soloing or who don’t have any friends.
    The second way is to get a friend who bought Blossoming Branch for 10 chocolates and can cast it on you. Notice: This only works with Party Members, you and the others have to be in the same party!
  • Noble Garden (Horde): Buy an Brightly Colored Eggs for 5 chocolates and hide it somewhere in Stormwind/Silvermoon City.
  • Chocoholic: Eat 100 chocolates. Easy enough too. 
  • Blushing Bride: For this you need an event Tuxedo Set (White Tuxedo Shirt and Black Tuxedo Pants, the tailored ones don’t work!) and /kiss someone wearing an Elegant Elegant Dress.
  • Spring Fling (Horde): First buy the Rabbit Vanity Pet (Spring Rabbit’s Foot) for 100 chocolates and then go to the 4 towns requested in the Achievement and find another person with a rabbit too in this towns.
  • Shake Your Bunny-Maker: Use the Spring Flower to place bunny ears on all females (race doesn’t matter, works on any). Only requirement is that the female is above level 18 (which is the where a person gets mature in most of the countries *wave at the reference to the playboy*)
