Are you looking for a great and affordable game guide to help you succeed in World of Warcraft? I was. I recently picked up my copy of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria after actively participating in the beta. I think the game took an interesting turn, taking place in the mystical and enigmatic land of Pandaria. I mean, what’s cooler than taking a role of a Pandaren monk, yeah? World of Warcraft is known for its class dynamics and races which creates a lot of variation when choosing how you look. Of course, most importantly, choosing the faction you will align with. In addition to becoming interested in WoW, I recently earned a copy of an online guide for the game. I earned it through a website contest and it’s a KillerGuides Pandaria Leveling Book. This review I’m writing up now will be my impressions on the guide
Going to KillerGuides.com I looked at the actual price of the guide which was $29.99 USD and is promoted in an e-book format. Those who want to save paper, the guide is in a downloadable PDF format which can be viewed through Adobe Reader! Did you see the cover of the guide?! It’s gorgeous! Of course with pretty pictures aside, I was stunned by the amount of content the book had. I mean, I was expecting a 50 page guide but instead, I had over 80 pages of content! Though I must admit, I was slightly taken by the amount of information the guide had. I really liked how the Table of Contents corresponded with the chapters in the guide. Great! The next thing I liked about the guide was how the author slowly introduced us to this new profession (especially for beginners). After the introduction, the author covered what the monk is about and how to use the monk efficiently in battle. This will be the next thing I’ll be covering: the author’s expertise in this field.
What are the highlights of the guide? Scanning through it, these were the sections that caught my attention: Equipment set-ups, skills and abilities plus rotations and the leveling sections. Okay, let’s look at the equipment set-ups, shall we? I think it’s not often that we know which types of equipments will be the best suited when you’re starting out. Taking you step by step in the guide, the manual shows you what types of equipment is best suited for your monk in accordance with your levels. You know, instead of buying out every single gear out there, why not by the best one for your monk at that level? If buying is not your thing, the Pandaria Monk manual describes the best recipes for crafting. That should save you a couple bundles of gold, right?
Skill rotations are your friends! In the Skill and Abilities section, the author describes the appropriate skills and abilities to use for instance:
Skill 1 > Skill 2 > Skill 3 > etc.
Sorry if I’m unable to actually write down the skill rotations since the book is under a single license. Giving me over several skill rotations to use, I felt better when battling Sha and other mischievous creatures in Pandaria. And of course, there’s the leveling section which is the heart and soul of the book. Now, leveling is easy in the game but for people (like me) who don’t know where to level, it can be a big mountain to climb! The author pinpointed several leveling areas in Pandaria to take full advantage of. He described the amount of monsters and mobs players can slay for sweet experience points. I could go on forever but I think it’s best for you all to look through the Monk e-book yourself.
I am very, very happy with this purchase! The author knows his material down to the last detail. I used his strategies and tactics for leveling or using the recommended skill rotations and they worked like a charm. For any of you fellow WoW enthusiast wanting to completely dominate Pandaria as a Monk, these Monk Game Strategies are absolute must-haves. To further take your game even further up to the next playing field, use it together with this unique Mists of Pandaria Compendium! đ
