Aion Kinah Guide – How to Make Easy Kinah With a Low Level Asmodian

When I reached level 20 with my Asmodian Assassin, I started working with an Aion Kinah guide as the prices for the stigmas I needed were outrageous. Since I had butterflies in my pockets, this guide seemed to be a good idea to help me find solutions for my needs of Kinah. Here’s what I’ve learned.

This Aion Kinah guide not only that showed me how to get the money for whatever I needed, it also revealed to me quite a few Kinah making methods and spots to farm even with a low level character. Therefore, I’m going to show here, a good farming spot for a level 20 Asmodian.

This is what you need to do:

Go to Morheim Snow Fields, the northern area of Morheim. The mobs you’ll be looking for are the Wailing Tayga, levels between 21-22. They are tiger like creatures, pretty easy to kill even if your character is level 19 or so. They drop the Gladiator Stigma for Advanced Dual Wielding Rank I, and the Sorcerer Stigma for Curse of Roots Rank I. These can be sold for pretty high prices. On my server, the one for Gladiator is around 100k Kinah and the one for Sorcerer can be sold for over 500k. Not bad for a level 20 lowbie, huh?

Also, by selling the junk loot to the vendors you will get a plus of a few thousands, good enough to cover the costs of your next travels or consumables.

As I said, this Aion Kinah guide has shown me many aspects of Kinah making in Aion Online, including a few advanced methods for high levels.

Easy WoW Gold with Primal Farming

Primal farming in World of Warcraft is new to The Burning Crusade expansion. Its a great way to make solid steady gold to get that epic mount or new armor you might need. Obviously Throne of elements is the best place but it usually has lots of others there witch can slow down gains. Scald is usually a bit better and is the best spot for farming Primal Fire.

If you need Primal Manas Netherstorm is the place to go. Especially just outside of area 52. The mana wrathes and wyrms have good drop rates. Or the Mana Ghosts by kirin var village ruins. Primal Air can be found throughout Nagrand and in Shadowmoon valley. The Mobs that drop the motes are usually pretty spread out and hard to farm.

Nagrand Halaani basin is 1 of the best places to get Primal Water. The Mobs are low level and easy to farm. There is plenty of them and they are not immune to frost so its the perfect place for Frost mages to farm any Primal water they would need.

There is a lake at the Northern edge of Terrokar forest witch has a type of Mana fish that can drop Primal Manas. This used to be a good secret spot but it may have some competition there nowadays.

Primal earth and life should come from the Gathering profession.But if your server supports it you can farm the Bog lords north of swamp rat post in zangarmarsh for Primal life. And the various Earth elementals in Nagrand for Primal Earth. For Primal Shadow Farming the Void spawns in Nagrand or Hellfire.

Over all farming Primals is a solid way to make gold. Its easy and mindless. Try focusing on the Primals with good Auction House value on your server.

Blackjack Card Counting, Will It Work for You? It’s Not Easy, Here’s Why

The purpose of Blackjack card counting is to know when the shoe decks at the table contain cards that are favorable to you, the player, thereby knowing when to make a larger bet.

Many casinos now use continuous shuffle machines (CSM’s), where the cards are automatically shuffled after each hand. It is impossible to count when these contraptions are used.

The movie 21, Starring Kevin Spacey, is a dramatization of a true story about a group of six MIT students that beat Vegas casinos for millions by mastering card counting techniques while playing blackjack. It gives a pretty good account of how the system works. The movie is based on the book, Bringing Down the House, by Ben Mezrich.

The Objective of Card Counting

As per the aforementioned, the objective is to know when the decks contain cards that are favorable to you, the player, thereby knowing when to make a larger bet.

You would do this by mentally assigning a point value to the cards being dealt and keeping track. Even if you are math skilled and are able to hold a running count in your head, there is still no guarantee. If the shoe is favorable, it may be the other players at the table or even the dealer, who are dealt the better cards.

Contrary to what most people think, card counting is not illegal. However, if caught you will be asked to leave the casino. Their personnel, advantaged by the eye in the sky view, pit bosses, floor persons, and dealers are all trained to spot counters.

Count Strategy

A simple strategy works like this: Assign the following point value for reach card dealt: any 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 are (+1). 7, 8, 9, are considered neutral, so do not count them. 10, J, Q, K, A, are (-1). Do the mental tabulation. If the count is +4 or higher, it means that lower value (unfavorable) cards have been dealt and higher (favorable) cards remain in the shoe. The opposite is true when the count is below +4 or in the minus field. Mentally continue the accumulative running count after each hand until the next shuffle. This many sound easy, but the rapid pace can be confusing. One mistake could blow the count in the wrong direction. If you still think you would like to try your hand at counting, here are some helpful tips:

First learn simple basic strategy. Without it counting is meaningless.

Practice. Practice. Practice. Try it at home with multiple decks first. Try counting in groups of 3 or 4 cards each to represent individual players. Tabulate up to 20 to 30 cards to simulate a full table of seven players per round. Speed is important.

When you’re ready, choose the right table. Look for the slowest dealer, a table with favorable rules, and a shoe game with the least number of decks. Sit down to buy in at a fresh shoe immediately after the shuffle. Note that some casinos do not allow mid-shoe entry into a game.

Favorable rules for the player are: Blackjack pays 3/2, split any pair, double down on any two cards, double after split allowed, and dealer stands on all seventeen’s.

Don’t get greedy. Keep your bet spreads low, to a range of 5 times the table minimum. For example, at a $10 table, never bet more than $50 on a favorable count. If you keep jumping from $10 to $100, you will get caught.

Don’t be obvious. If you try to act like the World’s dumbest blackjack player while playing perfect basic strategy, you will get caught. Remember, practice, scout, select, play, and have fun.

Good Luck!

Easy Way to Become an Expert at Reading Poker Hand Ranges

In poker, at any given time in any given hand, your opponent has a possible range of hands. You deduce this range based off of what they have done in previous hands, their body language, and their betting patterns. The better you get at figuring out what their range is and playing against it, the more money you’ll make in poker. It’s that simple.

Sometimes your opponents will make mistakes because they don’t know what their own range is. If your opponent’s range is strong, and you’re folding a lot to a bet because it’s so strong, then they should bluff more often. However, many people simply won’t do that because they aren’t aware of the strength of their range. Since you’ll be keeping up with your opponents’ ranges better than they will, you’ll gain an advantage when they don’t adjust correctly.

Another type of situation that comes up pretty often is when both you and your opponent have weak ranges in some spot, and your opponent doesn’t bluff raise you much at all when you bet. If your opponent is folding a lot in these spots, you can adjust by bluffing more often. Your opponent won’ be able to recognize that your betting range is so weak, and it’s these kinds of adjustments in poker that make winning poker players the best.

In general, you should have a rough idea of the strength of your range and your opponent’s range at any given point in a hand. The best way to improve at this is to put your opponent on a range, and put yourself on a range, after every decision on every street in every hand.
