Use Your Bonus Roll Even If You Forget Your Warforged Seal

Ever been in a boss fight with loot you want and then realize you didn't grab the bonus roll token? If you hurry and go grab your bonus tokens after the fight, you will still have the opportunity to roll. Once you have the tokens, either zone back into the instance or go to a different continent. Your bonus roll meter will pop up. This works for both raid dungeon bosses and world bosses.

Burden of Eternity and how to get one

Have you visited Timeless Isle? If you have, you probably have too many purple items already. If you have no use for the 496 items, they can be upgraded with a Burden of Eternity. The burdens are a rare drop from chests and creatures on the island, using them on any timeless token besides the trinket will yield a randomly rolled 535 iLvl item for that slot. They are also sold for 50k timeless coins from Mistweaver Ai. There are two guaranteed Burdens that you can pick up, one is pretty easy to get. It comes from the Blazing Chest, a rare chest you can only loot once per character.

The chest is located in the Ordon Sanctuary. There's a few ways to get to it.

Hearthstone Achievements for Gold

Patch 5.4 arrives tomorrow, but today I wanted to talk about Hearthstone.
If you're in the beta, you'll know that buying packs of cards and doing arena costs money or gold. 
Each pack of five cards is 100 gold, and each arena entry is 150 gold.
You get five gold every time you win 5 matches in ranked or unranked play. If you intend to never spend any real money, it's going to take awhile to get that gold.
There are dailies you can do which reward you with gold. The dailies are usually quests that involve winning x amount of duels with y class, they give you 40-60 gold when completed.

There are a few achievements that award you with a lot of gold. They are:

Got the Basics - 100 Gold for getting each hero to level 10.
Crush Them All - 100 Gold for beating each Expert Hero deck in practice mode.
Chicken Dinner - 300 Gold for winning 100 times, can be practice, arena or play mode wins.

That's all I've got so far, I believe there's an achievement for 1000 wins, not sure if that awards gold, anyone know?
