    Mage Fire artifact weapon quest

    Early in this guide you need to make your way to the Dalaran crater. Your guide makes it so much more tedious than it needs to be if you the mage in question has the Ancient Teleport: Dalaran spell.
    If the mage does not have that spell, then the guide is okay though you say to buy the Goblin Glider kit from Rickit. We don't need it. We have the Slow Fall spell.

    We write the guide trying to cover all possibilities so that's why it's done with the assumption that you don't have the teleport. As for the goblin kit vs. safe fall, we tell all classes to get the kit to allow better horizontal movement if needed.

    I understand that you should base guides on the widest audience. But it feels so wrong to go through all that when one has a spell that can bypass it. The number of times the guides have told me to do something and I have trudged through it and several minutes later I get to the end point and I realise I could have saved myself a good trudge is getting annoying. I use the guides to speed up things, not slow me down, and on the most part they are great. It just feels sloppy and incomplete when things like this happen.
    As for the goblin kit I have to say "What ?". This is a mage fire artifact guide. surely no other classes go here to get their artifact this way, or do they ? Though I'm sure I'm not the only one who regularly misses the small text in the guide. I know there was talk about a text scale being implemented. Did that happen ?

    I do not think a text scale option has been added yet. The dev guys have been fairly busy trying to nail down bugs in the AH tools.

    I believe both my hunter and my warlock had to grab a goblin kit to make a jump to get to a specific location for one of the artifacts.

    Only done BM hunter so far, so I'll keep an eye out for those. Though I have noticed that Blizz like to re-use stuff

    It's been a while since I did those artifact runs so I might not be remembering right. On my hunter I only did MM and BM artifacts and on the warlock I think it's the Demonology and Affliction I've done so far.

    Just got the "Go to Dalaran Crater" quest on my Destro Warlock. So you were quite correct and now it all makes sense
