708,000G and DCDS

A couple of things.  Firstly I made some gold (sold a mount and a huge number of pets) and popped up and over the 1 million mark again.  Then I spent a bunch of coin on keeping my warrior uber kitted as she climbed the PVP ladder.  Yes, it is an enormous amount of fun in the 80-84 and 85-89 brackets when you're wearing very expensive MOP blues.  ; )  Having a quarter of a million hits when those around you have 70K is, if not actually cheating, got to be extremely close - but after ploughing through about five horde defending a flag do you know what I discovered?  I don't care!  : )

All this conspicuous consumption has seen my fortune fall below 800K but honestly at between 2 and 8k a purchase I have a way to go before I'm destitute.

I have been giving some though to the gating of crafting recipes and have decided that next xpac I'll grind to unlock these.  I've always found the stready stream of small incomes to be rewarding and the gold I'm making atm from irregular large flips is strangely less fun.  Add to this the fact that without a full stable of fully equipped crafters I don't feel as Mogulish as I should.

While I'm here can I put a vote in for DCDS?  It was a crazy little idea put forth by Scott Andrews in a piece for WoW Insider back in early August.  In pondering this I can't help but travel back in time to tabletop days and a much loved dual-classed half-elf.  I pretty certain that this idea is the LAST thing that'll be finding it's way into the next xpac but with Blizz sticking to it's decision to only allow limited numbers of toons on servers (except for those soon to be merged servers) the thought of taking my gnome lock and rerolling a baby warrior makes me think that should this be actioned it really would be one of the coolest things in the xpac.

Stay liquid folks,

Olla folks,

I've been out on the Timeless Isle and can report that it's not that timeless... in fact, I have a very accurate way of telling the time whilst there. That being there's roughly 5 minutes between each ganking my lock receives from the horde.

I'm not against the process (although that's not to say I find it fun) and were I on the isle with a friend I'd be right in there for some respectful ganking; I'm on a pvp server afterall.  So fair warning, should you not wish your "game experience to change during online play" my suggestion at this stage is to play a stealthy toon. My durid and rouge are both sub 90 so for now I'll let this be.

One thing though - the rumours are true, 496 gear does pretty much fall out of the sky. In just a couple of journeys to the isle I've got my hands on about 7 epics and once I'm carrying the appropriate slot item for my class I then tend to get items for other classes for that slot, all BOA. It's great should you be gearing an alt and once I've got my warrior to 90 this will be the first place I come.

: )
