Hello,
Readers.

With so many new faces has come a lot of questions about A3, including questions about leveling your Bladefist characters.

All members are welcome to level their characters, but it is not a requirement of our guild. We also have a sister guild, Petoholics Anonymous, if you wish to have more than one character on Bladefist. We use the add on Greenwall for cross guild communication.

Both guilds have access to Lil' Tarecgosa, and the Guild Herald. The Guild Page is available to members of PA, while Armadillo Pup and Dark Phoenix Hatchling are works in progress.

If you want to join our sister guild, just post in our recruitment thread and one of the staff members will be happy to invite your character into the guild as soon as possible.

In other important reminders, the Qiraji Guardling will be despawning in a couple of days, so make sure you grab one if you haven't already.

Hope you all have a good week.

Piwakawaka.

FORUM CHANGES
The forums have recently undergone a small update and we would like to share the details with everyone!

New Sections
Introduce Yourself - Take a few moments to introduce yourself to fellow A3ers! We encourage veteran and new members alike to use this section.
Pet Trading - Create trade lists and share them with A3ers for a chance of helping each other collect pets that you need! Please be sure to read the rules and guidelines post before posting any trade requests.

Social Center Revamp
The Social Center section of the forum was starting to get pretty cramped! With the addition of the Pet Trading forum, it was just looking worse. As such, the section has been broken down into two new sections: A3 & Battle Pet Forums and Miscellaneous.

The A3 & Battle Pet Forums section includes: Azeroth Adoption Agency, Guides, Pets Collecting & Farming, Pet Trading, Reading with Leashes Blog Discussions and Sister Guild: Petoholics Anonymous.

The Miscellaneous section includes: World of Warcraft, Looking For Groups, Games, UI Addons & Macros, Hobbies, Real World and Everything Else.

Minor Movements
The Xu-Fu's and WCP article links have been moved from the Welcome section to the News section.

OFFICIAL DRAGON CAVE THREAD
Image
Image
Hello A3ers! It's come to our attention that quite a few of you are fans of the Dragon Cave hatching site. As such we have created an official thread for you! Please feel free to use this thread to help collect views and clicks for your hatching eggs and growing hatchlings, as well as post wish lists and trade requests.

Wakamaru has a near complete collection on the site (only missing 1 non-breedable dragon!), and is happy to help any member fill out their scrolls with rarer, harder to find dragons.
Wild Pet Capture Service
Above all else... A3 loves collecting pets! Collection doesn't just stop at pets that can be traded and adopted though -- there are a few worlds' worth of wild pets out there waiting for collectors, too! A few of us would like to offer our love of hunting wild pets to A3 members to help them also round out their wild pet needs.

Each week (sometimes a few times each week!) we will comb zones to help members find the wild pets they are still after. We will turn a zone upside-down and inside-out looking for your pet(s) and message you once we've found them. You will then come and capture it! If you would like to take advantage of this service, but aren't available during our typical times, please don't hesitate to contact us and ask about alternative days and times.

Specifications Allowed

✔ Both Factions
✔ All Zones
✔ All Pets
✔ Any Quality
✔ Any Breed
✔ Any Specifics (color, size, etc.)

Pet Suppliers
Do you want to help supply pets for adoption that A3 needs? We have a Pet Suppliers thread where members can sign up to sponsor certain pets they are willing to supply. When the supply of certain pets starts to run low or we have an upcoming project where we’ll need more of a certain pet – we’ll send out a notification about that pet to our suppliers! There is no guess work and no 24/7 farming because we’ll let you know when we’re in need of the pets.

There are no quotas to meet when supplying the pets that you signed up for. You can provide whatever amount you are comfortable with.

New supply options were recently added! New options include common vendor and non-Legion pets.


There are 100's of supply options available, but below you will find the newest options added to the supply request sign-up sheet. These options are especially in need of suppliers right now.

Please note that the sign-up sheet is organized according to which expansion each pet was introduced in, not the expansion "zone" that they are found in.

Whether entering a one-time competition or requesting your weekly pets, please remember these essential tips so your requests and entries aren't disqualified.

  •   Remember to keep an active level 20+ character attached to your site profile. It is a good idea to log in to this character before posting adoption requests to refresh your armory information.

      Please remember to check what pets you have before submitting requests! Add-ons don't always display things accurately.

      Please remember to report your request list if you acquire a pet you have requested. We've modified our system so that even if your post has already been flagged you can still report and make changes.

New Pet: Adopt Shadow the Fox and Help Support Disaster Relief Efforts
Introducing the latest World of Warcraft companion up for adoption in the in-game Shop and the Blizzard Shop: an artful fox named Shadow! This new companion is bound to use its cunning to shift its way through Shadow and Light directly into your heart and home.

Adopt Shadow And Help Support Disaster Relief Efforts

Due to recent natural disasters around the world—and the great needs of those affected—we’ve decided not to wait for BlizzCon 2017 to release this year’s new charity pet. The immediacy of the events, including Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, flooding in South Asia, and countless other crises, have shown we need to act now.

For every Shadow fox adopted between now and December 31, 2017, 100% of the $10 USD adoption fee will be donated to both American Red Cross Disaster Relief and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) Disaster Relief Fund. Your donation will be split equally between both organizations: for the American Red Cross to help people affected by disasters big and small in the U.S., and the IFRC to help Red Cross Red Crescent Societies respond to disasters through their Disaster Relief Emergency fund.

Ride Into BlizzCon® 2017 with the Virtual Ticket
BlizzCon® 2017 takes place November 3–4, but we’re kicking off the celebration early with the BlizzCon 2017 Virtual Ticket—available to order starting today through the Blizzard Shop!

With the BlizzCon 2017 Virtual Ticket, you’ll unlock access to a variety of features. As just one of these, Azeroth’s heroes can show their BlizzCon spirit in World of Warcraft with the Stormwind Skychaser mount (for the Alliance!) and Orgrimmar Interceptor mount (for the Horde!)—available in-game starting today!

Click to here to read more.
Grab Your Epic BlizzCon® 2017 Goody Bag
The BlizzCon® Virtual Ticket is your portal to Blizzard’s epic gaming convention from home, but you can warp in another piece of the experience by snagging a BlizzCon 2017 Goody Bag, full of Blizzard collectibles to commemorate this year’s show.

Starting today, you can pre-purchase a BlizzCon Goody Bag (while supplies last) through the Blizzard Gear Store and have it shipped directly to your home. Claim yours and celebrate BlizzCon in style.

A limited number of Goody Bags are now available to pre-purchase in the Blizzard Gear Store for $45 USD (plus tax, shipping, and applicable fees). This year, you don’t need a Virtual Ticket to order—but as a bonus, Virtual Ticket holders can pre-purchase the Goody Bag at an automatically discounted price of $35—just log in to the Blizzard Gear Store on the Blizzard account you used to purchase your Virtual Ticket. Supplies are limited, so be sure to grab one while you have a chance!

Connecting A3ers through Discord
Image
A3 is always looking for new and interesting ways to connect with its members. One of our greatest hurdles, though, is connecting members to each other. With everyone playing on different servers, different factions, and the limitations of the friends list – many of you have probably never had a chance to connect. We hope to use the Discord App to help solve that!

The major perk of an app like Discord is that communication is live. Meaning – you can see it on the fly (assuming you are logged in). This will be an advantage over the forum or twitter where you need to check in throughout the day. It will be especially helpful with organizing groups, sharing rare spawn information with others, or just getting to know your fellow A3ers!

Help Support A3
Did you know that A3 has bills? It’s true! A3 has monthly and yearly bills related to the cost of operating the Agency. Operating costs are the costs required to run the community – these do not include the costs of sponsoring giveaways.

A3 is a volunteer operated project and we need the help of our members to keep the site online. Currently, about 4% of our members contribute to the to these operating costs and around 1% have contributed more than once.

A few spare dollars here and there can go a long way! Donations are accepted through PayPal and Patreon.
For more information about donating financially please visit our Supporter's Page.
