Behind the Curtain
Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website.
My online name is Daen, and I play World of Warcraft on Hordeside Sentinels server. In the game, I run a daily activity called the Crafting Emporium, which basically involves making/scribing/enchanting whatever you may need free of charge, provided you have the materials.
The purpose of this site is to show you what I can make, so you can find out if you'd like my help, or if you don't need it. Generally speaking, though, if you need it, I can almost certainly make it for you.
Finally got all of the new Malevolent Gladiator's recipes. Leatherworkers have to work extra hard to get them, as there are more than twice as many new recipes than any other profession. I've updated the site to match the new accomplishments, and now it looks like I'll be scraping the bottom of the barrel for any more recipes. Let me know if you know of a (relatively) easy one I can get that I haven't listed yet :)
See you later,
Despite my daily cooldown item creation, I've still not gained all the 5.4 Leatherworking patterns. However, I did recently get my hands on the recipe for the Pandaren Treasure Noodle Cart Kit (after an annoyingly long quest series), and made a bunch. Given how complicated they are to make, I've decided to make an exception to my usual rule and sell them on the AH. Let me know if you need any, or just buy them.
See you online,
I just got a new job, with slightly differing hours than usual. As a result, I'm moving the Emporium up half an hour, to a new time of 7-8pm server time. I will continue to place the Blingtron at 8pm of course, it'll just be at the end of the Emporium and not the middle.
In addition, as usual, Saturdays aren't a guarantee. RL can be a real pain.
At any rate, I'll see you online,
today, Pebble: not
oday, Ricket: not
Fish of the Day: Krasarang Paddlefish, Stormstout Brewery
Tomorrow's crop prediction: Green Cabbage
Today's BMAH items:
Unclaimed Black Market Container, Pattern: Raiment of Blood and Bone, Bindings of Faith, Grievous Gladiator's Pendant of Alacrity, Reins of the Blue Drake, Shimmering Wyrmling, Grievous Gladiator's Cuffs of Accuracy, Blood-Soaked Invitation
* There's a less common pet in the Crumbling Depths in Deepholm, that can only be gathered by killing Jadefang. The only way to REACH Jadefang is using Ricket's explosives.
FAQ (As of Sep 16)
What do your charge for your work? Do you sell materials on the Auction House, or directly?
As a rule, I don't charge a single copper piece for my work.
It's possible I won't be able to make some items if I'm completely out of cooldown components. In that case, you'll have to wait between 1 and 4 days, and might go on a waiting list. That's pretty unlikely, though.
Generally, I sell what few materials I gather on the Auction House. However, if you're having trouble finding specific components on the AH, and I have them, I'll consider selling. That's also rare.
Why do you run this site, if you don't charge for the work you're doing?
I'm trying to set an example for the people online for whom money is everything. It isn't. Actually, unlike raiding or questing, the process of setting this example is what makes the game fun, to me at least.
Is it true that you refuse to link any of your professions? If so, why not?
I link specific items to describe the materials, but otherwise, no, I don't. I believe that people should investigate for themselves what they want to buy, and that if I were to simply be another window shop, I'd be hindering, and not helping, the people around me. Also, some people require profession links to prove they're not being cheated. I believe strongly that I shouldn't have to prove anything, that people should trust. That's another reason why I don't.
You don't put the materials for any of your items on this site. How can we find out what components we need to gather, if we want your help?
Adding all the materials for all my items would have taken me months. I suggest you use thottbot.com, as it's an excellent and accurate resource for me. Wowwiki.com also works.
When can we find you online, if we need you to build something?
I'm online at various times, but I've set aside the time between 7 and 8pm server time for this project. Some Saturdays I will be unavailable because of Real Life reasons. If you catch one of my characters then, I should be able to help you
Enchanting is best done then. Alternatively, we could work via ingame mail, if time is an issue. That'd actually be ideal for me, as well.
What is Bling?
High level Engineers can now build an item called Blingtron 4000, which can be used every four hours. The creature created by it lasts for ten minutes, and will give a gift to anyone who speaks to it, once per day per account. The gift is most useful for characters who haven't maxed out their professions yet, as it has a chance to help with that.
I place my Bling in Orgrimmar's Valley of Strength, at the close of my daily Emporium (8pm server time).
Which of your characters builds what, exactly?
is my primary Alchemist and only Tailor,
does all my Blacksmithing.
is my main Engineer, and does all my secondary skills,
runs all my Enchanting and Jewelcrafting,
handles all my Inscription, and
is my best Leatherworker. The rest are all support characters.
On the lists, if an entry includes #a, or #i, or any letter, it means it can't be done by the main, but can be done by my others.
You can't make everything. If it's not here on the site, where can we go to get help?
is an accomplished tailor with many endgame recipies.
has both old world and endgame enchanting down pat, and
's got blacksmithing pretty much covered. Oh, and I DO have every glyph that can be made, as well as many endgame recipies for other professions. :)
Do you do any other activities that we could find useful ingame?
I have a rogue,
, who can pick locks up to the max you can get so far, and a mage,
, who can Portal people to all portal locations. I also have a lot of experience with horde side quests, and leveling up nearly every class. I'm happy to share what I know. Generally, if you catch me during my Emporium (7-8pm server time, daily), I can help you.
Daemonicus, for the Chimaerok recipe, and for the elementium used for smithing recipes.
Crimsoncow, for various level 70 epic recipes.
Ullu, for a ton of savage leather used for LW recipes.
Loth, Zala, Malix, all my guildies, and the rest of the SGC for their constant support and help. I'm very grateful for all your help, folks :)
There's a large percentage of people out there who will, invariably, take advantage of people, just because they can. The following people made the mistake of taking advantage of me and my guild. I'm not angry at them, but I am disappointed. I hope this list doesn't grow any more than it already has.
Every day before my Emporium, I visit all my characters and create the cooldown items necessary to make just about everything out there. You can pretty much count on me having extras around to help you make things, unless those things are VERY popular.

Typically, I trade these for the mats to make them, so we can ignore time and BoP restrictions. The rest of the items have neither a cooldown nor are BoP, so they're easy to prepare.
As always, if you can't catch me during my Emporium, mail me. I'm happy to do this over the mail system, as well.
