Listing your real ID?
Return to board index
Is it frowned upon or against the rules to list your real ID under any posts you make about any wow related items such as
. I'm curious because sometimes information on there isn't as easy to get as tlaking to someone. I'd like to list my real ID under all those rares that I've posted under with my real ID (Well my battletag name) so people can contact me about any questions they have with those rares.
More then likely shouldn't, since you could end up with people spamming that email address.
We do not recommend listing your Real ID on Wowhead. Perhaps, perhaps... your BattleTag (as that is more secure).
However, we do not want people to feel compelled to contact someone in-game that they've discovered from Wowhead to ask a question. We'd prefer they ask their question as a 'Reply' to your comment, and if you're devoted enough to watch those replies and answer them then that would be great.
That being said, if you're providing a thorough non-spam comment on the database and feel compelled to share your BattleTag there I can't say that I would remove it. Ultimately, doing that would be up to you.
Please note though, we would remove comments that are made simply saying "Have Questions? Contact me here!" or "I want to sell you something on my server... contact me here!" or anything else of that nature.
Hopefully that answered your question thoroughly enough! :)
Indeed it did. I had planned on putting my battle tag not my real ID sorry for the confusion. I do however have information pertaining to said items on wowhead, but I'd like to list at the bottom that if they have any further questions to feel free to contact me ingame @ -----.
I completely understand that someone listing their battletag with no information other than "have questions about this item contact me here" without any relevant information on the item in their post.
The reason I asked if this was something frowned upon is because oddly enough I've gotten some tells in-game already concerning relics. Personally I find it easier to talk to someone "face to face" rather than commenting and wait to be commented back. This method would provide faster replies and better information I believe.
Your post was very helpful and hopefully with this knowledge I can further provide help to those that seek it. Thank you. :)
I also wanted to take it one step further and provide you with the format this will be used in and hopefully it's alright. If not I will remove my BattleTag from all the similar posts that I have edited. The following post is one that has received a decent amount of up-votes:
Got this at 7:06PM server time (Character - Hagendaz --- Argent Dawn - US) on 10/10/12. I found it at the location listed in one of the pictures already up. I went to check the spawn since I'd been farming for rares for quite a while during the day, both rare mobs and items. I went to the location and it wasn't up. I minimized wow for roughly 30 seconds since I was in mid chat with one of my friends on skype and I heard something similar to a tree growing rapidly (best I can explain it, or like a weed growing, kind of a stretching sound) I thought to myself like could I really be hearing what I think I am? I tabbed back into wow and sure enough there it was. I will be using this on my pally once I hit 86. I will also provide a screenshot as soon as I can. You can see what it looks like underwater
1. So as a note from my experience, it spawned (I'm not sure if it did in between but from what I've seen) roughly 16 hours apart.
2. It spawned with audio as well similar to a stretching sound or a tree rapidly growing.
If you plan to camp this and don't want to die of boredom I'd suggest making sure you can still hear wow with it minimized or windowed to the side and watching a movie or something but make sure you can still hear wow a bit. I've been trying this method and haven't came a crossed any other rares spawning so I'm not sure if others provide a sound as well.
Rares to date (In the order I obtained them with dates/times): 20 and achieved my
Wind-Reaver's Dagger of Quick Strikes
(Sadly I didn't screenshot this one in the heat of the moment 10/8/12 Hidden in a bush at the base of a pillar.)
(N/A But will update with coordinates once I get back into game.)
Wodin's Mantid Shanker
(2:44pm 10/9/12 Found submerged in the fountain water.)
Swarming Cleaver of Ka'roz
(First time friend got 3:00am 10/10/12, second time 16 hours later 7:06pm 10/10/12 Hiden within the seaweed)
Ancient Jinyu Staff
(7:19pm 10/10/12 Underwater near a peak in the land almost like a dam.)
Hammer of Ten Thunders

Sturdy Yaungol Spear
(On a spawned weapon rack 7:25pm 10/10/12 (yes 2 minutes after the hammer)
Recipe: Banana Infused Rum
(Didn't get a screenshot since someone was fairly close to where I was and I didn't want it getting ninja'd.)
(N/A But will update with coordinates once I get back into game.)
Malik's Stalwart Spear
(3:14am 10/11/12 Again hard to see where the item actually is. It's sticking out from the tree near the base pointed up.)
Lucid Amulet of the Agile Mind
(6:28am 10/14/12 Pretty distinct location hard to miss if you actually look at the screenshot/coords.)
Staff of the Hidden Master
(7:01am 10/14/12 Hidden among the bamboo trees, sorry I didn't get a better screenshot.)
Tablet of Ren Yun
(4:37am 10/15/12 at the peak of Mt. Neverest in Kun-Lai)
(8:13am 10/13/12 Inside the ship in South-eastern Krasarang Wilds. Contained:
Seafarer's Sturdy Boots
Jade Infused Blade
(4:48am 10/15/12 NPCScan can in fact be used to track this rare since you talk to an NPC to get it. The ID of the NPC is: 64272)
Yaungol Fire Carrier
(5:12am 10/15/12 I got aggro from nearby enemies while trying to loot this so be careful.)
Blade of the Poisoned Mind
(5:23am 10/17/12 Found hidden within the bush at the coords listed below in Dread Wastes.)
(5:35am 10/21/12 Obtained from
Frozen Trail Packer
inside the cave guarded by two Yeti's in South-Western Kun-Lai Summit. The NPC is able to be added to NPC scan using the respective ID: 64227)
NPC Scan pop near mountain. Note: you don't need to go inside for it to pop up obviously. This makes looking for the NPC more efficient.
Me actually near the NPC about to "take the item from his pack" and receive item.
Hozen Warrior Spear
(8:20am 10/23/12 Found in "The Deeper" Cave central Kun-Lai Summit.)
Dissector's Staff of Mutation

Pandaren Fishing Spear

in Krasarang Wilds.)
Sprite's Cloth Chest
(3:37am 10/31/12 Found within the Pranksters' Hollow cave in Eastern Kun-Lai Summit. You can find the location easily by finding the
's outside the cave. The chest is located at the very end of the cave near the two Perma-Dead sprites.)
I have posted this same list under all the rares I've obtained as I find most of the information useful and feel others will too.
If you have any questions I will do my absolute best to answer them if I can. You can contact me if you wish @ Jesse#1170
I think it's fine... but I will warn that a lot of people here tend to down vote comments that look so similar to your other comments (they just look at it as spamming). May want to consider changing up the layout, format or wording in future comments unless the votes don't concern you.
Good luck and thank you for contributing to Wowhead!
