is used when a screenshot is saved in your World of Warcraft\Screenshots directory. Note that increasing
this value will mean the files saved use more disk space.

Power Auras addon guide
Power Auras is one of the most flexible, useful and underutilized addons around. With an impressive number of
configuration options you can set it up in more ways than you can imagine.
The core of the addon is essentially configurable triggers based on a variety of in-game events and statuses, which then display customizable images or text on your screen.
To create a power aura, first install and enable the addon.
When you have logged in, type /powa to bring up the interface and start creating your UI.
You can create auras for your entire account or just for the character you are on.
Click create to create a new aura or edit to edit a previously created aura.
Now the edit interface appears. At first this interface can be overwhelming but once you have used it a few times you will become quite familiar with it.
Importing and Exporting Power Auras
Power Auras has the ability to import and export auras using a specially formatted string.
To export an aura, click on it – then click the Export button and copy the text from the box provided.
To import an aura, click on the Import button – then paste the import text into the box provided.

Alchemy is my go-to for making money on Molten Wow’s WoTLK servers. The trick to making a large amount of money from
Alchemy is to have lots of Alchemists. I currently have 45 Alchemists which earn me around 1 million gold a week.
The first step towards this of course levelling Alchemy. To level Alchemy to max (450) your character will need to be level 65 or higher.
This guide has been created by me for use on Molten Wow’s Ragnaros WoTLK server. It is important to note that at the time of writing Ragnaros gives you 5 levels for each skill up and this guide has been created specifically for that.
