Will you still love me.. when I’m 64?

Last night was happy birthday to me dinner (Outback, Ribeye and Salad 4/5 stars) and a movie (“Live Free or Die Hard” 4/5 stars). So didn’t get to log in until late. I’m now a 35 year old grrl, who works for a big dotcom in San Francisco. I own my own home (well, share custody with several banks), live with Fiancee, two dogs, and 4 birds. We both Wow.. but I’m much newer to it than him. We are the GM for our uber-casual guilds. He’s the head of the Alliance-side guild (West Kingdom), I’m the head of the Horde-side guild (Bawk Bawk). The Alliance side guild is currently getting keyed for heroics (or in my case, still leveling to 70). The Horde-guild is currently level-capped at 29 :) .

When I finally logged in last night I found that there was a nice grouping of level ~63-ish guildies on. We grouped up and then started working on the furthest behind toon’s quests. Continue reading Will you still love me.. when I’m 64?

On the accumulation of wealth

I may have won fiancee over last night.

He’s always giving me heck for wasting an hour in AH when I could be out questing/grinding. Last night he walked in the room just as I was starting to check my mail (from all of the AH stuff I put up on Tuesday night). Tatia’s mailbox [...]

Stranglekelp farming

Ette did a quick cross-world tour. Menethal to Ironforge for training. In IF she saw the big bonfire.. and checked out the quests. The easiest of these was to visit Ironforge, Stormwind and Darnassus. Since she was planning to go near Darn anyway, it made sense to pickup that quest and make a quick jaunt down to Stormwind. (BTW: I’m going to see if I can convince guildies to do the quest “A Light in Dark Places” with Tatia. It gets you a cool “A Spirit of Summer” red glowey wisp pet).

Honored with Sporeggar

I bought some [Sanguine Hibiscus] on AH and the turn in brought me most of the way through Friendly with Sporeggar. Since I only needed to get to Honored it made sense to spend a little while killing nagas. Two trips through the Bloodscale village saw me into Honored.

Ette-cetera

Tuesdays are a “get-together-with friends” night. So Wow is very limited on that night. I logged on late.. spent a little while shuffling things onto AH with Tatia to make some money.. and then decided to play Ette for a while.

I had an odd realization.. both Tatia and Ette are questing in swampy areas. Tatia in Zangarmarsh and Ette in the Wetlands. They have a vastly different feeling though. Just the environment of Zangarmarsh is utterly other-worldly(the critters even more-so). The Wetlands feel downright mundane by comparison.

Vague rumblings

So you’re making 50-100g/day from quests and vendor trash in the outlands.
The closest auction house is a (somewhat long) flight and a portal away (stealing precious time from your questing/farming/rep grinding time).
Armor/weapon upgrades have been coming fairly regularly from quests.
You’re making that final push to 70. You can see the end in sight. It seems silly to upgrade your armor for 66 when you know 70′s right around the corner. -and- you’ve already compiled your “list of armors/weapons/enchants I need at 70
Outland BOE greens, even the crappy ones.. vendor for greater than 6 gold.

All of these lead to the situation I see.. and BRK confirms:
“BOE greenies aren’t selling worth a d@mn; we’ve having to vendor everything” – Big Red Kitty

Mucking around in the marsh

More Zangarmarsh questing. Last night we ran around completing stuff in the western and southern part of the marsh. We started the night with just Tatia (63 Protection Paladin), and Zynnia (63-64 Priest).
