A big choice will face you early in your Outland’s adventure, and it’s a choice that’s a lot harder to undo if you make the wrong one.


Once you hit the mid-60s and head to Shattrath City, you’ll be faced with one of the most important choices in TBC Classic. Do you side with Aldor or Scryer? Now, this choice is reversible, but it’s a massive pain (we’ll explain later). For now, let’s focus on a simple guide to the best picks for each spec.

Note: This pick is not binary. While Aldor might be BIS for your spec, it might not be for your profession. For this guide, we’ll keep the two separate, and it’ll be for you to decide what you value more.

Should you go Aldor or Scryer?

A summary of the early state is that Aldor is going to come out on top for most classes, with only Warlocks exclusively using Scryer for PvE. It’s worth noting that both shoulder enchants are very minor DPS/HPS gains between the two. WoWWiki has a good comparison of those.

It’s worth noting that this decision is not exclusively about the shoulder enchants, and will also factor in BoP rewards from two quests and purchased via the vendor. The Aldor one is Deathblow to the Legion whereas the Scryer has Turning Point.

Aldor players be warned, it’s a long way down from up here.

Note:  In the below charts we’ve used italics for specs that will also require an item from the faction alongside the shoulder enchant. WowWiki has another breakdown of all those items here.

Specs that should go Aldor for PvE

  • Druid: Feral DPS – Feral Tank – Restoration
  • Hunter: Beast Mastery – Marksmanship
  • Paladin: Holy – Protection – Retribution
  • Priest: Holy – Shadow
  • Rogue: Assassination – Combat – Subtlety
  • Shaman: Enhancement – Restoration
  • Warrior: Arms – Fury – Protection

Specs that should go Scryer for PvE

  • Druid: Balance
  • Hunter: Survival
  • Mage: Arcane – Fire – Frost
  • Shaman: Elemental
  • Warlock: Affliction – Demonology – Destruction

Aldor and Scryer profession recipes

Another unique feature of each faction is their profession recipes. None of these are particularly game-changing, especially as most of the items the recipes create are sellable. We’ll list below what each faction offers each profession, though none of them are really deal-breakers, and we’d suggest focusing on the shoulders/items as your priority.

How to change back to Aldor or Scryer

If you decide that the faction you picked isn’t for you, don’t fear. You can change back to the other faction with a few simple steps. Well, unless you find yourself hated with the opposite faction that is, then it might take some time. If that does happen, here’s what you need to do.

Going from Scryer to Aldor:

Find the NPC Sha’nir in the lower city, who offers the quest Strained Supplies. This will require you to farm eight Dreadfang Venom Sacs from Dreadfang Spiders in Terokkar. Once you complete this quest, you’ll unlock the same quest as a repeatable quest, which offers the same reward. If you find yourself at Hated with Aldor, then it will take roughly 1344 Venom Sacs to get to Neutral (10% less for humans).

Going from Aldor to Scryer:

Find the NPC Arcanist Adyria in the lower city, who offers the quest Voren’thal’s Visions. This will require you to farm eight Dampscale Basilisk Eyes from Basilisk mobs in Terokkar. Once you complete this quest, you’ll unlock the same quest as a repeatable quest, which offers the same reward. If you find yourself at Hated with Scryer, then it will take roughly 1344 Venom Sacs to get to Neutral (10% less for humans).

Note – there’s a point in this quest chain where you’ll find yourself unfriendly with both factions. Meaning you’ll be unable to enter either faction’s bases in Shattrath City.

How Archer Swap Has Helped End Ethereum’s Bidding War

Avatar

Published

Most DeFi users have heard of Ethereum’s high congestion issues, but few are aware of the controlling forces operating behind the scenes, and how badly they can be impacted by this single problem. When traders send a regular transaction via the Ethereum network, it is susceptible to attacks from bots or front-running software run by entities seeking to profit from trader activity.

Ethereum’s ecosystem is perhaps amongst the fastest growing in the crypto space. Thus, there are already many solutions that tackle this issue and operate for the benefit of the users and decentralized exchange (DEX) traders. Most of them have gone under the radar.

Archer Swap is part of the Archer DAO, a project with features designed to mitigate the risks associated with sending transactions on Ethereum. It protects users from Miner Extractable Value (MEV) strategies, sandwich attacks, and front-running bots while maintaining a connection with Uniswap and SushiSwap, two of the most popular DEXs on Ethereum.

In this sense, Archer Swap can be described as a DEX extension that enhances the trader experience on these dApps. This protocol combines two powerful sets of features that give traders improved operations on Ethereum – protecting them and making trades more cost-efficient.

The first set of benefits are called Archer MEV Shield. Besides protecting transactions from bot attacks, it allows users to eliminate failed transaction fees, a recurring problem on Ethereum. Traders can also cancel transactions at no additional cost.

The second feature is called Archer Trader Extractable Value (TEV), a proprietary and innovative concept introduced by Archer Swap. Operating within the Archer Relay, Archer TEV uses automated rebalancing transactions with bots to sync market prices when big market moves occur.

After a trade or a big swap, there is usually an arbitrage opportunity in a market. Archer TEV uses these opportunities to capture the value and redistribute it to Archer Swap users. In essence, Archer TEV takes revenue generated by Archer Swap and gives it back to one of the protocol’s core components, the traders.

Archer Swap Launches Campaign To Reward Traders

Following a community vote, Archer DAO recently launched a 6-week campaign to buy back and distribute its native token ARCH. In this way, the protocol can reward early adopters. The tokens will be acquired with the revenue generated by Archer TEV.

The protocol won’t have to touch its treasury reserves to attract new users to the platform. The protocol and the users will benefit – as more users trade on Archer Swap, the campaign will have more resources to acquire and distribute ARCH. Therefore, the token will most likely see an increase in buying pressure during the coming weeks, and the platform will see a surge in the number of users.

Archer DAO will distribute rewards every Friday from June 11th to July 16th, 2021. The platform will calculate rewards for each user based on their transacted volume for each week. The rewards will be delivered automatically and with basically 0 risk for the users, all they need to do is trade.

Archer Swap has had famous trades. In May, during the high of the dog meme coins, the inventor of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, used Archer Swap to dump his supply of Shiba Inu (SHIB), AKITA, MIRI, ELON, and others into the market.

The dump served a good cause, as Vitalik used this money to send over $1 billion to different charity organizations. The most notable is the Covid-19 relief campaign for India started by Polygon’s co-founder, Sandeep Nailwal. This trade could be among the most famous in 2021 and was enabled by a protocol whose main objective is to shield its users and give them back the power to operate safely within the Ethereum dark forest.

Extreme Fear In Crypto Market, Is It Time To Buy The Blood In Bitcoin?

Republished by Plato

Published

on

The past week has been a brutal one for bitcoin and crypto in general. The market has taken hit after hit. So much so that it’s starting to seem like there is no end in sight. Coins have been falling at high percentages. It brings back a popular saying in the financial markets; “there’s blood in the streets.”

Investors have been reacting to this negatively. The Arcane Research Fear & Greed Index has moved back into extreme fear. Going down to the lowest it has ever been this year.

The Index currently sits at 10 in extreme fear. This means that investors are scared to put their money in the market. With no more money going into the market, the prices will go down. And we will see even redder charts.

Time To Buy The Blood?

“Buy the dip” is a popular saying in the crypto space. People are encouraged to buy coins when there has been a massive downturn in the price. Quoting this as being the best time to get into the market. But what happens when a dip goes past just being a dip into full-blown bleeding?

With red charts and downward-facing arrows, the market looks like it is bleeding. With massive liquidations going on and not as much faith in the digital assets anymore, the crypto market valuation is down.

It is always best to buy assets when there is “blood in the streets.” People are wary of the market. Weak hands are pulling out, dragging the price down. And that is when the long-term hodlers come out to play.

There is never any definite way to tell where exactly the market will bottom out. But a good indication is when assets are down so much that people are scared to buy back in. A time where it seems like the coins will never recover and that is the best time to buy.

Is There A Market Recovery On The Horizon?

A trend in the market has usually been massive dips are followed by good recoveries. People buy assets that are down a significant amount in hopes that they will make a profit when it recovers.

With institutional investors still holding on to their bitcoins, it looks that they still have hope in the market.

MicroStrategy recently bought an additional $500 million worth of bitcoins to add to its growing portfolio. Goldman Sachs had ramped up its bitcoin trading activities by partnering up with Galaxy Capital. All good-faith moves in the market.

But with the hash rate hitting record lows and the number of bitcoin mined in a day dropping, it could be that the market is headed for a » Read more

It will not be the first time that the market has pulled ahead after massive downturns. A lot of investors see the falling prices as a chance to buy back in. And more money goes back into the market, so does more faith return. Increasing the valuation of the assets.

Bitcoin has fallen below $30k. Less than half its all-time high. A crucial hold point for the asset.

Ethereum has fallen below $2k.

The total market valuation now sits at $1.21 trillion. Less than 50% from its highest market valuation of $2.4 trillion.

Crypto Crash Trends On Twitter As Bitcoin Falls Below $30,000

Twitter has gone into a frenzy after bitcoin fell below $30,000 this morning. The hashtag #cryptocrash is currently trending on the platform. This is after the coin broke the $30,000 stronghold and fell below it. A price that has been a stronghold for bitcoin for a while now. Speculations were that as long as the asset didn’t fall below $30,000, then there would be a recovery.

Bitcoin has been in a downtrend for a couple of days now. News of mining rigs closing down in China pushing the price even further down. Falling below $30,000 means bitcoin is about to erase its gains for 2021. The coin was trading at $29,001 n December 2020. Only breaking the $30,000 barrier in 2021. Now bitcoin is trading at only 3% gains for the year 2021.

Bear Market Trends

Richard Bernstein was on Trading Nation two weeks ago to talk about the trends in bitcoin. The CEO called bitcoin a bubble. He pointed out that bitcoin was currently in a bull market. Noting that people were leaving the markets that were actually in a bull market behind.

Bitcoin has been struggling for the past two months. This was after the coin finally hit the all-time high of $64k in April. There was a lot of speculation that the coin was headed for $100k. But it seems the asset had other plans.

Analysts have compared this to the 2018 crash. When bitcoin hit a new ATH of nearly $20k and then proceeded to lose 80% of its value. At one point trading at a little over $3k.

There Is Still Hope For Bitcoin

Mike Novogratz was on CNBC earlier to talk about the price drop below $30,000. Novogratz said that while he was less happy than he was at $60,000, he still hopeful about the coin.

Novogratz further explained that calling a bottom on the crash is hard to do. This he attributed to the large liquidations currently taking place across a number of assets.

With regards to the $30,000 price level, Novogratz said, “We’ll see if it holds on the day. We might plunge below it for a while and close above it.”

The co-founder of Galaxy Digital noted that he wasn’t worried about the price crash. Explaining that he does not expect another crash of the 2017 magnitude to occur again. This he chalked up to the maturity of the ecosystem. Pointing out that much more mature players are now moving into the system.

“Every single bank is working on their own crypto project, how they can get bitcoin to their wealthy clients. I think a lot of clients that didn’t buy it the first time will see this as an opportunity to buy it and get involved.

– Mike Novogratz, CEO of Galaxy Digital

Twitter users have taken to the platform to express their opinions on the current market movements. There are countless tweets asking people to not panic. That the market is going to recover. And right now, it is starting to look like they’re right as the market has gone back into the green. Bitcoin is currently back up to $32k, after a dramatic price drop below $30k.
